Alamo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

One Bedroom Apartment Close to San Francisco and Napa/Sonoma Wine Country

This apartment is the perfect romantic getaway, set on a half-acre wooded estate, in the upscale community of Alamo, just east of San Francisco and just 50 minutes south east of Napa and Wine Country!

For anyone wanting a quiet place in the countryside, but quick access to the sites of San Francisco or Wine Country by car or public transportation, this is the place to stay!

This 600 square ft. attached unit was just newly remodeled in July of 2014. Guests enjoy a single master bedroom with en-suite half-bath, a spacious Living Room, fully equipped Kitchenette with all new appliances, a nicely appointed Living Room space, and new hardwood floors throughout the entire apartment.

Guests also step out of the back door into the main home's beautiful tree canopied private back yard. Enjoy full access to the swimming pool, peaceful outdoor living areas including, sitting areas and a hammock for rest and relaxation. Along with the kitchen enjoy an outdoor BBQ for grilling.

This apartment has its own entry door and affords complete privacy without having to share the rest of the house with the owners. When the owners are home renters may still have access to all of the grounds outside the main house.

A bus for public transportation to all parts of the San Francisco Bay Area, leaves from the corner of the property and connects to the BART Bay Area Rapid Train system, making this property perfect for those who want to go into the city for the day but want to retreat to the countryside to relax or bike and hike the numerous trails of the adjacent hills bordering the property.

About Robert Norsworthy

Bob and Cindi Norsworthy, the owners of 'Casa Di Riposo', have spent their 35 years of married life, traveling the world, bringing funding, training and resources to partnerships that work among some of the poorest and needy of the world.

Casa Di Riposo means 'Home of Rest' in Italian. That is precisely what this home is for them. A place of rest and relaxation. It's a haven and retreat to recharge their batteries, in preparation to go out again, in relentless pursuit of bringing transformation and hope to those who have no hope in our world.

Bob & Cindi are excited to share a part of their home with people looking to enjoy a time of rest and relaxation in 'their' favorite part of the world, the San Francisco Bay Area and the world renown California Wine Country.

We welcome you to our Casa Di Riposo, House of Rest.

Why Robert Norsworthy chose San Francisco Bay Area

We chose this property for Casa Di Riposo because of its quietness and beautiful surroundings. We are within a stones throw of the hustle and bustle of downtown San Francisco and its world class sites. Our location affords the best best combination of country living near the City.

We also love being less than an hour from Wine Country with its world-famous wineries and the beautiful oceanside communities of Carmel and Monterey to the South.

We can also be in the breathtaking mountains of the Sierra Nevada and Lake Tahoe or the World famous Yosemite National Park in only three hours of very scenic driving.

What makes this apartment unique

Alamo, the location of Casa Di Riposo, is tucked in between Danville, CA. a quaint town with a classic Main Street and great restaurants and shops along Danville Blvd., 5 minutes to the South and Walnut Creek, one of the Bay Area's best restaurant and high end shopping areas, 5 minutes to the North along Main Street and its surrounding neighborhoods.

You can also walk out the door of the apartment and in 2 minutes hike or bike along the scenic and tree lined Iron Horse Trail. The Iron Horse Trail, once a historic railway that brought the wealthy of San Francisco to the nearby countryside for retreat, is now paved over and turned into a pristine paved hiking trail with over thirty miles of hiking through the communities of the historic San Ramon and Diablo Valley.

Mount Diablo, dominating the horizon to the East is one of the Bay Area's best regional parks, affording breathtaking views of the San Ramon Valley to its West and on a clear day views all the way to the State of Nevada and the Sierra Nevada mountain range to the East.

San Francisco Countryside Apartment in Alamo

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were great, exactly what we wanted. The owners were very welcoming and took care of all our needs. We were provided with a large screen TV with TIVO, and a small kitchen and a coffee maker. In addition, the recommendations for local restaurants were very good. We would recommend this property to friends, and we are planning on staying at the same place in December.

Casa di reposa...bella

  • 5 of 5

This was a delightful, well-equipped place to stay in a beautiful neighborhood with lovely tall trees. My husband and I were grateful for the comfortable queen bed and a kitchen that allowed us to make our own meals and eat on lovely dishes. Our hosts were gracious, quick to respond to any questions or needs, while providing us with privacy. We had our own deck to sit on with morning coffee, and also had access to an outdoor table and grill by the pool. We enjoyed walking a half a block to the wide Ironhorse Trail, which goes for miles past beautiful properties, horses and hills. There was a parking space for us as well. We plan to revisit La Casa often!

Lovely, private, peaceful home accessible to so many nearby destinations

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I made a visit to the Bay Area to see our daughter and so enjoyed staying at this well-appointed, welcoming home in Alamo. The home was beyond our expectations - it is in a peaceful, country setting, away from the busy-ness of the city. The bed was extremely comfortable, with lovely linens, and the bath, kitchenette and living space were just perfect for all our needs. Our hosts were extremely helpful in preparing for our visit, and had some fabulous coffee and goodies waiting for us in the fridge. The property is honestly more beautiful in person than the pictures portray, and is a great location from which to travel in many directions - to San Francisco, San Jose, or even Napa. There is a lovely walking and biking trail adjacent to the property, and we enjoyed walking to a couple different breakfast spots and Peet's Coffee. We will definitely stay here again when we return to California.
