About Diane DiGirolamo
My wife and I have enjoyed living in our vintage 2 flat on the tree lined street in this Lakeview neighborhood for the last 25 years. So many places are is walking distance that we rarely use our car except for work. We have rented our 1st. floor as a short term vacation/temp apartment for the last 9 years and have hosted guests from all over the world to locals relocating or remodeling. We have truly enjoyed hosting guests that have come to explore the city, go to a ball game, a special family occasion or conference that brings them to Chicago.
Diane DiGirolamo purchased this Apartment in 1986
Why Diane DiGirolamo chose Lakeview
We purchased our 2 flat located in this north side neighborhood almost 34 years ago as a place to live and raise a family. We have never regretted moving to Lakeview. It is a vibrant neighborhood filled with tree lined streets lined with vintage maintained homes and apartments. This is a true Chicago neighborhood. Filled with a healthy mix of young families and singles as well as older long time residents. It is very walk able. There is little reason to need a car. Excellent public transportation to downtown and Lakeview is a very walk able part of town. It has been rated 92% on the walk ability index. Just a great place to experience a Chicago neighborhood.
What makes this Apartment unique
The side yard adds light to the apartment and the yard is just a great place to sit out with a cup of coffee or have a bbq dinner and eat at your table set on the stone patio.

Perfect Chicago location
We loved staying at Diane’s place. It was clean, comfortable and so close to the train to get downtown. She was very responsive when we asked for directions and extremely accommodating. Kitchen was stocked and fresh coffee was ground waiting for us to start our day. The beds were very comfortable. Love love love this place and will be booking here again! Thanks Diane for a great weekend. The whole family loved it !
We are very glad you enjoyed your trip and our neighborhood. You are always welcome at our guesthouse.
Great, clean and comfortable place in a great area
This is our second stay in this accommodation. We loved it as much as the first time. It is very nicely maintained and the place is very clean. The side yard is very nice for those who bring a dog or just want another place to relax. Plenty to do in the immediate area but it is very close to an El stop so the rest of the city is conveniently available. We would not hesitate to stay again.
Very glad you had a comfortable stay. You are always welcome back.
