The space

We bought this property because we always wanted to live in a Victorian and we simply love Alameda. The people, the weather, the proximity to everything and most of all the tranquility of this island.
We chose this particular property because of its unique Victorian look & feel of it. This home was built in 1891 by Peter Christiansen who was a very well known builder during his time. History books claim that he had built several victorian homes in Alameda. This particular home that he had built was for himself. Historians claim that because of that, he used the best types of wood and construction materials available during his era to build this home. It sure seemed like that during our major remodel.

This is a great place if you want to enjoy scenic Alameda. It's only a couple of blocks from lots of restaurants and local shops; it's also only a mile from the water as well, which is a great place to run or walk. The place is clean and cute in a lovely Victorian home, and the owners have anticipated and met their guests' needs very carefully. I'll be back on my next trip.

Joe & Mimi's place was great for our 2 night stay while visiting the Bay area. They had everything prepared for us and had great contact with them before and during visit, very professional hosts. Alameda is a great alternative to the expensive City. The downtown area is just down the street and is very quaint. Easy to get around, but definitely recommend renting a car to anyone visiting the area. Highly recommend staying there!
