You can even catch a free ride into the city in the morning with commuters. Or you could try out one of the several companies that rent cars for short trips.

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

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.

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.

Great stay in Alameda

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Nicky and Eddie's Alameda apartment. It is very pleasant and comfortable, with lots of charm and character. Nicely furnished, with all the amenities of home. Nicky and Eddie even asked us about grocery items to have stocked before we arrived. It is in a quiet neighborhood, but close to the restaurants and shops on Park St., and to the one major shopping mall in Alameda. We loved walking around the neighborhood and hanging out at a nearby neighborhood cafe (Blue Dot).
For us, the location is very convenient for visiting our daughter and her family, who live in Oakland. And the Fruitvale Bart stop is relatively close by for trips across the bay.
The listing and the photos are very accurate; the one detail that is left out is the rather quirky layout that requires one to go through the bathroom in order to get to the master bedroom. We found this unusual, but not really a problem. But we could imagine that groups of more than two might find it awkward.
We highly recommend Nicky and Eddie's flat, and we plan to return soon!
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Girls Getaway, Families with Teenagers, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. We always work to make our guests' stay as comfortable as possible. As far as the layout, the master bedroom/bathroom is self contained (with access to the bedroom through the master bathroom) and has a lockable door between the two rooms. We added a second bathroom off the main living space to accommodate any additional guests. We hope to welcome you back again soon! Thanks Nicky and Eddie

This was such an extordinary experience that the owner should be hired to train people who rent through VRBO or HomeAway what is the correct way to prepare your rental, welcome you guests, how to make them feel wanted and comfortable, and how to address any problem that may arise during their stay. We felt more like guests than like 'renters''.

Owner's Response: Dear Elliott and Carolyn -- we so enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you both. Thank you for your endorsement of our apartment and service - that makes us feel very good. We try very hard with all our guests to provide attention when it is required and privacy the rest of the time.

We do hope to see you again when next you are in the bay area.

Kind regards,
Nicky and Eddie

I like the place which is quiet, and not far from the beaches and supermarkets, restraurants.
The property is just as the descriptions with quite big living and dinning area. The owner is nice. I will definitely consider this property again the next time I visit Alameda.
Owner's Response: Thank you Peter! You have a lovely family and we hope to see you all again the next time you are in Alameda.

Great vacation in Alameda

We were a party of three adults and really enjoyed our stay in Alameda in this spacious, sunny and comfortable apartment. The neighborhood is quiet and nice to walk through – many interesting houses. The location is perfect because we could walk to the bay and nature walk along the bay, to many restaurants, shopping center with many stores & restaurants and a Trader’s Joe and Safeway. We could also walk to the historic movie theater. We were visiting family who live on Shoreline, which was a short walk. The dining room and kitchen was a great size for family members (7) to cook and enjoy dinner together.
We thank Nicky and Eddie for the breakfast food and other items in the cabinets and refrigerator.
We are so happy we stayed at Nicky and Eddie’s apartment and will be back again.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the great review about Alameda (our favorite place!) and the apartment. We like to add items that our guests will enjoy for breakfast and snacks. Please come back again! It was great meeting you and your family. Happy New Year! Nicky and Eddie

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.
