About Nicky and Eddie

Nicky and Eddie have lovingly restored this beautiful Victorian property over the years and now they would like to share it with vacationers. Nicky has many years in management in the hotel industry and knows all about hospitality. Eddie is a civil engineer and general contractor by trade and ensures the building is up to code and running smoothly. They take great pride in the fact that all systems of the building have been replaced from the foundation to the roof, electric and plumbing. The building has been retrofitted and is in top condition with modern amenities. The restoration was acknowledged in 2003 by the Alameda Architectural Preservation Society with an architectural preservation award.

Nicky and Eddie purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Nicky and Eddie chose Alameda

When we bought the house, it was in need of some TLC. It had four rental units. Many years and lots of money have converted the property to three units with the most spacious now offered on VRBO. There are two owners who live on site. Lots of pride of ownership. We consider ourselves fortunate to own such a lovely, well made 116 year old building and to have been able to update all the systems of the house to bring it into the 21st century while maintaining its unique historic appeal. The builder of the house was himself a builder and his family lived here in 1898.

What makes this apartment unique

1898 Victorian, fully restored, large, spacious, high ceilings, filled with light and all amenities. Great location, steps from a beach and a great shopping center. When we bought this home we fell in love with the simple lines and admired the skill and craftsmanship of the people who built it as well as the wonderful community that is Alameda with all the benefits of a small town in a major metropolitan area. Wonderful weather year round, clean and safe city with a real sense of community. Typically, Alameda is 8-10 degrees warmer than SF with no fog or wind. A great location for folks working in the East Bay including UC Berkeley and Emeryville. Suitable for families on vacation and corporate rentals. Ideal for relocation while you find a permanent home.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5
This home was beautifully renovated and very clean. We enjoyed our stay. We felt very welcomed with all the little details in the home. The town of Alameda is very quaint. Eddie recommended Tomatinas (not sure if I spelled it correctly) excellent Italian food.

Spacious, comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and two small children stayed here for a week, during a work/personal trip. Being that my husband is from Alameda, the location was ideal. Alameda is a hidden gem that provides a great, central location to most Bay Area attractions. If you have a rental car, it's especially convenient. The apartment is more spacious than pictures depict. The decor is beautiful and attention to every detail or potential need has been paid. The owners live in a separate apartment upstairs (separate entrance) and are available to provide assistance or answer questions but also give you space and privacy to enjoy the rental at will. They are just lovely people! Street parking is typically not a problem. A few times we had to park a short walk away, but in Alameda, walking is a pleasure. The separate nook space was fine for our two children. It does get a lot of early morning light and the blinds don't block it out completely. If you have sensitive-to-light sleeps, I recommend hanging an extra blanket over the windows, as we did. The nook is a good option for a second sleeping space, but it's not as private as having a second bedroom. We would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for such a fantastic review. Eddie and I enjoyed meeting you and your lovely family so much! And, thank you for the feedback. We had no idea the light was an issue in the nook. We will get blackout drapes and fix that right away! Hope you have a great summer and hope to see you next time you are in Alameda.

Because of its unique location, the city of Alameda enjoys remarkable advantages as a place to live and visit. Situated on a flat island connected to a peninsula and stretching some 10 square miles on the east side of San Francisco Bay, Alameda is a small town in the middle of a major metropolitan area. With a climate rated as the most desirable in the continental USA by the National Weather Service (mean annual temperature: 71 degrees [14 degrees Celsius]), Alameda has temperate weather in all seasons. Add to that the world-renowned scenic beauty of the Bay Area and you have the perfect destination spot: a lovely little island beach town with easy access to the diverse cosmopolitan San Francisco and East Bay cultures.

There is no through traffic in Alameda – it is a destination with only five roads entering the island – another of its unique characteristics. Transportation in the Bay Area is accessible and affordable: bus service; the Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART) of monorail trains; ferries; a bicycle-friendly environment; and a superb freeway system crossing numerous bridges.

The venues for entertainment and enjoyment have a tremendous array of choices: fine dining; beach outings; boating; world class music and concerts; plays; street fairs, museums; tourist destinations like the Embarcaderos on both sides of the bay; the wine country in the Napa Valley; major sporting events by professional teams; universities; and even skiing within a day’s drive.

Alameda’s history makes it an interesting place to visit and explore. The transcontinental railroad ended in Alameda in 1869, and the estuary on the north side of the island was home to some of the finest ship-building companies in the world when wooden ships sailed the seas. With a population of about 75,000 inhabitants, the town seems friendly and accessible to all, enjoying a diverse community makeup. In fact, in 2010, Travel and Leisure magazine proclaimed Alameda one of the top ten American suburbs worth visiting, citing its well-kept beaches, spectacular views, and laid-back atmosphere.

The architectural heritage of Alameda is the jewel in its crown. The city acted to preserve its treasure of vintage Victorian homes in the early 1970’s, passing a municipal law forbidding the destruction of the structures by developers seeking to build apartment complexes. The result of that legislation is a town with truly beautiful views down its tree-lined streets, welcoming strolls and bike rides to all.

Visitors are charmed by Alameda. We’re sure you will be too.
