About Michael Daidone
I purchased the property for living in and renting out. I occupy the upstairs while my guests stay below. The amount of interaction with guests is largely dependent on the guests. Some guests in the past have had a specific agenda for visiting the area and I hardly saw them. With others, I would have great conversation over wine in the courtyard. I want to help provide a memorable experience for all my guests by providing a great place to stay in a terrific location with fun things to do.
Michael Daidone purchased this House in 2017
Why Michael Daidone chose Saint Charles
I chose this property because it's located on the river in a mature neighborhood with large trees. Also, the proximity to the two gorgeous towns of St Charles and Geneva means there is never a shortage of fun things to do and interesting things to see. I know my guests will find this to be an ideal location.
What makes this House unique
I really love being on the river. Not only for the beauty of it but also to be able to walk my kayak over to the launch and enjoy a little morning exercise. Miles of bike trails are accessed just by crossing the street. Close to abundant shopping, amazing restaurants, live theatre, cinema, and a train station for Chicago trips.

This was a great place to stay. Very clean and accommodating. I would definitely stay there again.
Excellent home with a beautiful view!!
We loved staying at this property! The owner was incredibly hospitable. He went out of his way to provide beverages and snacks, including a delicious loaf of Breadsmith bread! Bed was also very comfortable and location was perfect. I would absolutely stay at this property again!! :)
Great location, Excellent Propery and Host
We stayed for a week at St Geneva and it was one of our favorite VRBO experiences. Michael was very welcoming and went above and beyond providing many comforts of home like the nespresso machine and coffee and the amazing homemade bread from a local shop. The size of the place is very comfortable and the view of the yard and the Fox River is a treat. The place is walkable to many of the shops, restaurants, and parks of St Charles and a short trip (2 miles) to the quaint town of Geneva and the train station that gets you to Chicago. Can’t wait to return!
Great Location! Great View!
We loved this place. The owner was very nice and easy! It was a perfect location, perfect place. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to stay near either Geneva or St. Charles. We Uber to both and was so easy. So much fun!
St Geneva is a home away from home!
I booked the St Geneva for my 3 daughters and myself for a wedding. Two of my girls live out of town so I wanted something more than two hotel rooms. I can say that was the best decision ever. The place was everything we wanted. We felt like we were at home. The river view was amazing. My girls ran in the park along the river every day. So overall 10/10.
Close to many amenities
It's walking distance to so many activities, shopping and nightlife. For that, we really enjoyed it. It was clean and nicely appointed. They have a lovely sunroom/porch that would be usable during other (non-winter) seasons. There isn't a lot of square footage inside the house. And there isn't much more indoor seating than is shown in the picture. There is a busy street that runs between the house and the river that isn't well shown in the pictures. And although we stayed there in the winter, if you're staying in the summer, you might want to be aware that there are individual air conditioners for each room. Overall, we really enjoyed it. We plan to come back when weather is warmer.
The neighborhood is mature with lots of large trees and beautiful parks. At my back yard is the Fox River and just to the south is a park. The neighbor to my north is very quiet. Some of Arcada Theater acts this year will be Yes, 38 special, Ted Nugent, many tribute bands and comedians. Shopping and dining are awesome both in Geneva and St. Charles. Fests and fairs are a large part of both towns. Free outdoor concerts in St. Charles and Geneva every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings from now till the end of August. If you love live theatre, the small yet charming Steel Beam Theatre is a must. 10 minutes from Lamplight Equestrian Center. 7 minutes from The Q Center. If you want to visit Chicago, there is a train station in Geneva that will get you there.
