We recently spent almost 2 weeks in the converted carriage house in Alameda. Our first grandchild is nearby, so it was a quick drive to our family's home nearby. First impressions proved correct as we found a wonderful breakfast for the next day waiting in the kitchen for us plus a bottle of wine if desired.
The location is ideal. Owners John and Arthur are great sources of info on sites, eateries, and are more than accommodating for our every need. Crisp white linens and towels are always available. The bathroom is equipped for travelers if they need various toiletries. The place is spotless.
The property is an oasis and is fascinating with antiques, botanical displays, lemon and apple trees, koi ponds and live canaries in large enclosures. Every effort was made to make us comfortable. We hope that next time this coming winter, we can take the time to get to know them better.
