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 35 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 Lake View
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.

Our second time here; we'll be back!
This has become our go-to, home-away-from-home VRBO for the Lake View neighborhood -- it's roomy, clean, well-equipped, close to family and restaurants, dog-friendly, everything we need for our Chicago visits. The fenced back yard is a real plus and rare in this part of the city. We highly recommend this unit!
Great property in Lakeview neighborhood, wonderful hosts.
We very much enjoyed our stay. The property is large, well kept and clean, and the location was perfect for us. And while there is only on-street parking, we had no trouble finding a spot near the rental. Diane and Mark are very responsive, happy to assist with any question or issue. We will be back!
Close to DePaul University
We chose this location because our son was graduating from Depaul. It’s within walking distance to the university, the train and great food. It’s a good size for a small family. Everything you need. I’d stay again in a flash.
Worked really well for myself, husband & 2 little kids.
As always we enjoyed our stay at this property. It is close to everything, very clean and comfortable. Every detail has been attended to to make your stay pleasant.
The apartment is centrally located in the Lakeview neighborhood, 20/30 minutes from downtown on the El or 10 to Wrigley Field. A true Chicago neighborhood filled with small shops, ethnic restaurants, and good public transportation. This neighborhood is car optional. The apartment is about 1 mile south of Wrigley Field and one Mile west of the wonderful Lakefront parks. It is 2 blocks from the Brown Line elevated train(the El) to downtown and the museums. There are always cabs for hire just outside our front door and the shops and restaurants all with in walking distance. No matter what has brought you to Chicago you will be centrally located to take in a ball game, enjoy the beach or spend a day exploring downtown and all the museums.
If you do come by car, we provide parking stickers which allow you to street park.
Our 1st floor apartment is a classic vintage apartment fully equipped and ready to be your home during your Chicago stay, you don't even need to leave your furry friends at home because we are PET FRIENDLY!

Free Lincoln Park Zoo is only 1.5 miles from the apartment. A really great zoo with conservatory gardens.
Our incredible lake front is just 1 mile due east. A great destination for a day of sun and people watching.
Our neighborhood is made up of single family homes, apartments and small shops and restaurants. The buildings range in age from new to over 100 years old. A walk through the neighborhood is an architectural tour of Chicago buildings.
There is a Divvy Bike rental just down the street for convenient daily bike rental.
Golf: Waveland Golf Course is a 9 hole golf course located right on our lake front. A really wonderful round of golf!
