                                If the base board heat had worked without a hitch...but why quibble: This apartment was well-appointed, clean as a whistle, well-located in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance of Alameda's great (and great value) restaurants, and an easy strike to the SF ferry, and the Bart. We'll return when we next visit family in this sweet town.

                                Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, age 55+.

                                Owner response: Thank you for the review and my apologies for the baseboard heater hitch. I hope the portable heater was sufficient in the meantime. It was a thermostat that went bad and we have since got it repaired. We hope this will not create a roadblock towards your future stay with us.

                                My husband and I recently signed up for sailing lessons in Alameda and stayed here for 10 days. Much nicer to stay in a "home" environment than at a hotel... This was nicely furnished and very comfortable!! Also very reasonably priced :) Hoping it will be available for our next visit!!

                                Owner response: Thank you for the nice review. I am sure you both are happy that the seahawks won and the sailing was smooth. We enjoyed having you stay with us and we appreciate the business. We look forward to seeing you again.

                                This was my second stay at this lovely unit in Alameda. Once again the place was clean and comfortable and Joe and Mimi were fantastic hosts. I came to visit family for Christmas and although I would be spending most of my time at their houses where they had Christmas trees and decorations, I felt bad that I would be staying in a place that would not have these cheery reminders of the season. I should have known better. The Pappaly's had a wreath outside and a small Christmas tree in the living room. Amazing! And Mimi brought me homemade Christmas cookies to boot. Unfortunately I got sick the second day of my stay, but again the Pappaly's were there asking if there was anything I needed. Soup? They are great and caring hosts and I can't say enough good things about them. But if I had to be sick I couldn't have had a better place to rest. The queen size bed is very comfortable and it is very quiet. Unfortunately Mimi was sick by the time I left, so I felt very bad about repaying their hospitality in such a way. I hope to stay again under better circumstances. Highly recommended!!

                                Owner response: Thank You Mary for this awesome review. We look forward to your next visit and taking good care of you.

                                My family and I stayed at this wonderful place in Alameda late last year. The accomodation itself was spotless and every need was catered to. The address itself was easily found and positioned close to shops, transport, cinema, post office, restaurants and best of all, so close to the ferry to get across the harbour into the city itself. We felt we were living on a movie set, as it was so picturesque.The festive lights were amazing and added to the holiday atmosphere. Our hosts were exceptional with their hospitality. They were available to answer even the most inane of questions and we enjoyed their company on several occasions. We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to any traveller who needs a base that feels like home. It was a wonderful holiday, made that much more special by staying in Alameda ,with these great hosts. We will definately stay again, and are in the process of re-booking. The only recomendation I would make is there should be more stars!!

                                Owner response: Thanks Jodie for your kind words. We enjoyed having you all here as much as you enjoyed being here. Your next booking is confirmed. We look forward to seeing you.

                                When travel short term, it is difficult to prepare daily routine needs fully satisfactorily yourself. Well, you come to the right place, Mimi and Joe’s beautiful place, like your own home. We stayed in both apartments, each for about two weeks during the December holiday. We are thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality and accommodating nature of the couple. All rooms were neat, clean and comfortable. Ample kitchen and bath room supplies of daily needs were very well-arranged. It was the best place we have ever stayed and enjoyed. We definitely will be back.. Li and Albert

                                How amazing! This was the best place I have ever stayed at and the owners are so friendly and welcoming. They thought of everything and supplied the best of every amenity. I spent the first hour taking photos and sending them to friends to brag about how great it is and how much I want to live here. It's in a quaint town, very safe, and not far from the BART. I can't wait for my next opportunity to stay here!

                                We spent a week in this beautiful apartment that is an easy walk to Alameda and all the shops and restaurants. Joe and Mimi were the ideal hosts living on the floor above us. We didn't need them since everything was perfect but it was reassuring to know that they could easily be reached. This apartment has everything you could possibly need and many things you didn't know you needed! Bed was extremely comfortable and was covered in a puffy warm comforter. Lots of towels, pillows, and blankets. The kitchen was well stocked and even had snacks and a bottle of wine to welcome us. I will book this apartment again when I visit my daughter.

                                This charming little Alameda rental was everything and more than expected! My sister & I had an absolutely lovely week at this home. No need to bring anything but your clothes & toiletries.... and they even provide some of them.... The apartment was very clean, fully furnished & stocked with essentials. Bright & cheery windows. Although I never watch TV, our first morning was a sleep-in and then watched a 2 hour movie! Trick-or-Treating on Halloween was better than I have ever seen - so many kids in town during the day visiting the merchants and then hundreds that night! An easy walk to Park Street for shopping & restaurants ~ so many restaurants to choose from, even on the side streets & tucked away in alleys! Major shopping not far away at South Shore AND. . . did I mention the fabulous Gold Coast Beach overlooking the SF City skyline?!?!?! Joe & Mimi are the most wonderful hosts ~ hated to leave them as we feel like family after only a short stay! They insist on you being comfortable in your apartment, their garden and home. Definitely look forward to returning to our little piece of heaven AND for another trip to the Alameda Flea Market! Will most likely try to do a walk or bike ride on Bay Farm Island next time..... * * * Thank you Joe & Mimi * * * and may you have a blessed long life together :)

                                The apartment was even MORE than we could have hoped for - clean, comfortable, excellent location, and was stocked with everything so nothing was needed except personal clothing items! Owners Joe and Mimi were just awesome - from helping us unload our car upon arrival to including us in their Halloween candy giving - never saw so much trick-or-treating in my life!!! And the location is within easy walking distance of Park which is the main street with lots of restaurants to choose from - which we did! We even made a pasta one night from cherry tomatoes and basil picked right from their garden! I can't think of anything that was missing and can't wait to return... not only did we discover a real GEM but we gained two wonderful new friends as well. Thanks you guys - will never forget the time spent there with you two.

                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About the owner: We are Joe & Mimi, the owners who live in the main house upstairs in this beautiful Victorian. We purchased this house a few months ago, did some major renovation recently and decided to rent out the units below as vacation rentals. We would love to share our home with you and even give you some insights as to what to do, where to go and be of help if you are unsure of how to get around in the Bay Area, during your stay with us.

                              Why the Owner Chose Alameda:
                              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.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                              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.
