Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hawken's Nest for 7 days - a Danish family with 3 kids (8, 14 & 17). The appartment was the perfect solution for us. Well maintained, clean and had lots of space. Great with a fully equipped kitchen - and very nice living room (the TV was old and blurry though). The bedrooms were very nice too - and our kids looooved the fancy showers! The location of the appartment was just perfect - very charming neighborhood and very close (walking distance) to grocery stores, shops, cafés, restaurants, movie teater etc. And very easy access to transportation. We took a bus, just around the corner, directly to SF almost every day, took approx 30 min. We spent 7 days in Alameda/San Francisco without a car - and it was not a problem at all. The owner was very helpful and very easy to get hold of. We definitely recommend this appartment to other families with kids.

The best choice in Alameda

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for more than a month after relocating from Chicago and it was the best decision, superb location with downtown at walking distance (5 min), excellent restaurants and cafes, bars, movie theater, shopping mall, the beach, bus to San Francisco, etc.

The owner is very friendly and helpful when needed.

The apartment is nicely furnished, european style, simple and modern. It was very convenient for cooking at home with all the appliances and necessary utensils.

I think the place is perfect for young families, couples or young people that want to explore the East Coast and SF without hassle.

Parking on street was very easy and safe.

The only inconvenient I can think of, the spiral stairwell to the second level would be complicated for older people or someone with disabilities.

We highly recommend this place.
