My wife and I recently stayed here for 10 days, and our experience could not have been better. Rather than try to add to what previous reviewers have offered, I simply wish to second their many accolades and superlatives—for they are all spot on. In short, if you are looking for a beautifully designed and appointed, well-equipped, open and airy, immaculately maintained home—within spitting distance of the many culinary delights on Park Street, no less—look no further! As for Margaret, you will find her to be responsive, accommodating, and a delight to work with.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and updated. The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and basic cooking items. The house had many conveniences often not found in other properties. The owner clearly has thought through how to provide a quality rental. The location is nice as well considering being located on Broadway.

Lovely Alameda home

  • 5 of 5

This home is so conveniently located and the owner has thought of every amenity. Very beautiful decor, yard and kitchen. The owner recently added air conditioning which we appreciated on a couple of days we were there. The location near Park Street restaurants and shops is perfect.

Great place, great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Margaret was the perfect host. The house was clean, comfortable, and very welcoming. She provided everything we needed for our stay, including a pack-n-play and a high chair for our toddler. She was available if we needed anything and very helpful on recommendations on things to do and places to go. We will definitely stay here again if we are back in the area!

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable, lovely duplex in Alameda was perfection for our stay in the EastBay. Close to shopping in downtown Alameda and easy drive to Oakland, or just nice strolling in the Alameda neighborhoods. Owner has provided a beautiful place to enjoy your holiday! Will stay here anytime.
