Our warm, light, airy home is really spacious and full of Victorian character. Enjoy four bedrooms, three bathrooms, two living rooms, a dining room, a large eat-in kitchen, a utility room with new washer and dryer, an outside deck with dining table and chairs and a huge garden with trampoline and family friendly set-up. We also have a long driveway where you can park several cars. The perfect place to explore SF and California from. Alameda is cool too!

The space

Our Queen Anne Victorian home is full of Victorian character. The ceilings are 11 feet high. There are pocket doors and beautiful Victorian features. Inside it feels like you are in a very large Parisian apartment. This is our family home, so it's fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

Guest access

We own the whole property and live in the upstairs unit - you will be renting our unit, which is 2,300 square feet. There are two units below, which are rented to tenants, who are very quiet and friendly. You also have full use of our huge back yard, which has a big trampoline in it for kids and you can also use our beach cruiser bikes to explore the island. We also have a trailer for kids.

The unit is very open plan, light and airy and because it's mostly on one floor, it feels huge.

Sleeping arrangements:
1 x master bedroom with a king size bed
1 x kids bedroom with 'boat bed' which is a twin and has a second twin trundle bed that pulls out below
1 x kids bedroom with surf shack twin bunk beds
1 x office/spare bedroom downstairs, with a queen sized murphy bed
1 x living room by day, but at night there is a mattress that you place on the mega-sized movie-watching sofa to create a full-sized bed

Interaction with guests

I'll be away. I will also be available via email or you can call me if you have any questions.

Other things to note

There are two apartments on the ground floor with tenants living in them. They are very nice, friendly and low-key.

Chloe made us feel very comfortable at her house. To every question she answered in a timely fashion. A bottle of wine and a nice card welcomed us. The house is 25 minute walk away for the main shopping street. Alameda is a lovely place to be. It is handy to have a car. We enjoyed our stay.

Chloe was a wonderful host. She took care of everything and was available for us. She went beyond our expectations. Her house is very welcoming and was perfectly situated in Alameda as well as near our friend's house. My daughters loved the toys she left for them. The house is very comfortable. We enjoyed a little the backyard but took advantage of her advice on visiting places. Discovered new area gem. The ferry to go in the city was the best. We would definitely stay at her house again if possible next time we visit. I am so glad we had the chance to share her house.

Although Chloe and I didn't meet in person, communication with her was easy and she was exceptionally hospitable, even from afar. The house is stunning and very tastefully decorated. We appreciated all the extra touches like Egyptian cotton towels, new linens and comfy beds, but especially the kid-friendly features like a great back yard, toys, and such, which made our 8 day stay more like home, but better. The house was much more spacious than we anticipated which made the week (4 adults and a toddler) all the more comfortable.

This place is great (Chloe's flat, Alameda, the bay)! The space was airy, spacious, and full of light during the day. It's welcoming and homey, without being cluttered or overly precious. Chloe was super helpful, leaving both a guide to the home and the nearby area. There's ton to do in Alameda (morning runs in the harbor, Burma Superstar and Forbidden Island), and it's easy to get into Oakland or San Francisco. Hoping to visit again soon!

Et helt nydelig, innbydende hus i Alameda - og med en fantastisk varm velkomst. Huset er meget sjarmerende i tillegg til stilig interiørmessig. Rent og fint og alt av sjampo, såpe, tannkrem ligger klart. Chloe har skrevet en lang liste over ting man kan gjøre i Alameda, vi prøvde både Ole's Waffels og Burma Superstar. Huset ligger i nærheten av et kjøpesenter med Trader Joe's, Safeway og butikker slik som Kohls, Ross og TJ Max. Trygt og pent nabolag. Vi er en familie på fem - da vi skulle være her i 10 dager, sørget Chloe for at vi hadde ordentlig seng også på det ekstra soverommet. Vi fikk dermed 3 fine soverom i tillegg til to stuer (den ene med en fantastisk svær tv-sofa) og romslig kjøkken med alt vi trengte. Det var internett og tv kanaler samt Netflix, HBO mm. Bakhagen er også fin med to solstoler skjermet fra naboer. Det var møbler i garasjen som vi kunne ta ut i hagen, men så langt kom vi ikke. Huset ligger en kort kjøretur fra stranda, og siden dette er i bukta er vannet faktisk varmt og godt å bade i. Litt utfordring kan det være med vinden, i juni var den litt kald og det synes som det blåser mye her - men den dagen vi var på stranda og det var relativt lite vind, var helt nydelig. Vi valgte å ikke kjøre med bilen inn til San Francisco, men det går en direkte buss til SFO like ved huset, eller man kan ta bussen til Fruitvale og Bart derfra. Reisen tar ca 35 - 45. Anbefales å kjøpe et Clipper card. Vi foretrekker å bo rolig og fredelig slik som i Alameda, framfor å bo midt i byen. En dag kjørte vi sørover til Santa Clara og Boomerang Bay Waterpark/American Great America - hadde en super dag og mens temperaturen er høyere i Alameda enn i San Francisco er den enda høyere i Santa Clara. Andre morsomme ting vi gjorde var å ta en hop on - hop off buss i SFO (tja, var nok litt uheldig med guiden der), en båttur (bridge 2 bridge - veldig bra), California Academy of Science (Ok, jordskjelvutstillingen var veldig god - ellers var det mindre interaktivt enn vi er vant til i USA). Vi kjøpte et Go City pass med tre aktiviteter for å gjøre dette - ellers hadde det blitt voldsomt dyrt med dagens dollarkurs. For å se på Golden Gate bridge kjørte vi nordover og stanset ved et utkikkssted hvor man kan ta fine bilder av broa (dersom det ikke er tåke). Oppsummert: huset til Chloe og Alameda kan absolutt anbefales. Chloe svarer med en gang du har et spørsmål (selv når hun er på ferie i Mexico) og gjør det hun kan for å bistå deg. For en familie på fem har du godt med plass i huset, og skap og skuffer var til og med tømt slik at vi kunne bruke de. Tusen takk Chloe :-)

Chloé nous avait laissé plusieurs pages d'informations pratiques et recommandations concernant la maison et les lieux à visiter aux alentours. La maison était très agréable, spacieuse, avec une grande chambre et plein de jouets que mes garçons ont adoré, une cuisine très pratique. Il y a des vélos pour se balader autour, en bord de mer ou sur les avenues.

We are Chloe and Orion-a British couple who moved to the U.S. in 2013. We loved it so decided to stay! We have two young boys so our place is very kid friendly!
