Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you, provide you with information about the apartment and the area and then leave you alone to enjoy your stay! We are available any time should you need anything. We live on property.
We thoroughly enjoy living in Alameda and the East Bay. The stately Victorian homes and tree lined streets, charming shops and restaurants on nearby Park Street, make it a very unique and special place to live. Wouldn't want to live anywhere else!
Walk to shops and restaurants, the beach and parks. Public transportation is plentiful - BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) stations are a bus ride away. Express buses take commuters to the city from several locations within three or four blocks of the house. On street no meter parking is available on our street. Oakland International airport is five miles from Alameda. From SFO International terminal take BART to Fruitvale station. $12 cab ride gets you to the house. You can also hop on a bus from Fruitvale that takes you to our street.
Other Things to Note
If antiquing is your thing, Alameda and nearby towns offer lots of it! Lovely little family owned shops, tons of ethnic restaurants and Lake Merritt in Oakland close by. Alameda Hospital is half a block and the Kaiser Hospital in Oakland is close by. Make Alameda your jumping off point for the wine country, San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon or Berkeley. And dont forget the East Bay state parks and giant redwoods of Muir Woods in Marin County.
This is a quiet, residential neighborhood so no loud music please after 10pm weeknights and 11pm weekends. No smoking in or on the grounds. No pets.
What can I say? It was wonderful! Our hosts were very nice and helpful. The flat was perfect! Great location and great place!
This is likely one of the best places to stay in Alameda. It's a cozy first floor apartment nestled a 10 minute walk away from Park Avenue, a popular street in Alameda lined with nightlife activities. The apartment is well appointed with new, clean bathrooms, a complete kitchen and a comfortable living room. I highly recommend Nicky and Eddie's apartment and would definitely stay here again when I visit again.
Both of us have lovingly and faithfully renovated and restored this 1898 Victorian "colonial revival" home. I am fortunate enough to have a successful career in the hospitality industry and truly enjoy making guests comfortable and happy during their visit to Alameda. Eddie, a retired civil engineer and general contractor, has upgraded all the systems and ensures it is maintained meticulously. We were honored to receive an historical preservation award from Alameda for our work a few years ago. In my spare time I love combing consignment stores, yard sales and antique shows in search of unique vintage pieces of furniture which I enjoy re-imagining and restoring. Many of my pieces are used in the apartment which is constantly updated with new finds. Look for my pieces for sale in my Etsy store: (launching very soon) Vintage by Nicola. Things we cannot live without: our wonderful friends, our sons, and three cats, Quentin, Socks (with only three legs) and Ziggi. Now we are senior citizens and the kids have flown the coop, they are our surrogate children!
