Very Nice Condo and Surrounding Area
Very Nice Condo and Surrounding Area
The condo met expectations as advertised. Very clean and easy to feel right at home. Access to the BART was very convenient. We were on a baseball vacation and were able to get to both ballparks without a problem. Time into the city was about 35 minutes and the trains were pretty frequent. The local area had plenty of options for food and shopping. Our youngest son spent lots of time in the pool and enjoyed it very much. Not crowded at all for the time we were there. The owner was very good about answering our questions and provided arrival and departure instructions that worked like a charm. A good find for us that we would definitely consider renting again if the opportunity arises.

Owner response: We thank our guest for taking the time to write this nice review, and we hope to meet or exceed our guests expectations staying in the charming condo in a perfect Bay Area location. We look forward having our guests back in their future visits to the area.
We visit family in Alamo yearly and have rented in various condos/home. We found this unit to be most comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked to handle all our cooking and baking needs; dining and living rooms were well appointed; bedrooms and bathrooms were well stocked with linens and plenty of towels. Both decks were in need of a cleaning. Loft was too warm for sleeping. The unit is in an excellent location in Alamo, close to freeway yet secluded and quiet. Unit was clean though out interior. We enjoyed our stay very much.

Great location just out of the city.
Great location just out of the city.
We planned a vacation with our two children to San Francisco and wanted something bigger than a hotel room and out of the way of the busy city, but close enough to go into the city almost every day. This condo was great, located in a quite community with everything we needed just a mile away. (grocery, restaurants etc) The next town over about 4 miles away, Walnut Creek, had movies, shopping, a BART station, and any restaurant you could imagine. The condo was very clean and spacious, had a nice pool, and we enjoyed staying there very much. Would definitely recommend to anyone else. The owner was very nice and always responded to my emails promptly. This is our 4th or 5th experience with vrbo and we have been super pleased every single time.

Good location, great neighborhood. Little disappointed that we were under the impression that it sleeps 6 but really there are only two bedrooms and then a loft blow up matress. Overall though nice decor and technology through out.

This was our 1st experience renting with VRBO so we have nothing to compare it with. We would have rated this excellent but the refrigerator, oven, kitchen cabinets and bathrooms could have been cleaner. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pan and cooking utensils. There were plenty of towels in the bathroom which were clean. The furnishing were nice. The owner was attentive. When we got there, the smoke alarm was beeping and the legs on 1 of the chairs was loose. We called him and he came over and took care of them both quickly. Yes, we would recommend this.

Nice unit but we rented it primarily for the advertised pool and spa, both of which were closed for the winter when we arrived. If we didn't want and need pool and spa we could have rented many other places for less. Owner refused reasonable price adjustment so dispute is now being handled by Master Card.

Owner response: We tried to satisfy our guest, since the pool was closed for the winter by the HOA, we never advertised that the pool is open year round, despite that we offered our guests a daily prepaid pass to a local high quality sports club with heated pool, he refused, we offered a 10% discount, he insisted on 25% discount which is unreasonable. Since we could not satisfy him, we finally offered him to cancel the rest of his stay with a full refund for the unused portion of his reservation, he did not agree to that either. We try hard to accomodate our guests needs and make their stay as enjoyable and smooth as possible, regretably we were not able to satisfy this person!
Wonderful stay in Alamo
Wonderful stay in Alamo
We stayed in this lovely condo for a few days in September, 2012. It is perfectly located for the Alamo area. We could walk to a local coffee shop-Cherubini's- each morning, then get on the Iron Horse Trail for a walk. Everything we needed was provided - the kitchen appliances are in great condition and the bathrooms are fully stocked. The beds are very comfortable. The condo was exremely clean when we checked. in. That certainly started the trip off on the right foot! The owner is a phone call away, if you have questions. I certainly shall rent this condo again and would feel comfortable recommending this property to anyone. Thank you !!

We found the description of the location and the property to be very precise and helpful, since we were able to enjoy Bay Area, and San Francisco in particular. It is reasonably close to BART, and at the same time, it is situated in a very exclusive and lucrative area, near Walnut Creek. The place is clean and well-maintained, newly-furnished, and has a modern style with all amenities. The owner was friendly and very cooperative with us, responding promptly to all our questions. I would strongly recommend this place to those, who are interested in visiting San Francisco and Bay Area. Our favorite restaurant was La Chavel ( situated in Walnut Creek, inside the beautiful open mall, one of my favorite local attractions, 10 min drive from the property ). Alamo itself has very cute downtown, with bunch of cozy places to eat and hang out. We keep good memories of that trip!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
