Our eclectic, art filled room has a private coded entrance and private bathroom. The room is 1/2 of my downstairs, legal duplex (240 sqft). The antique bed is a FULL size with an organic mattress and sheets. The neighborhood is VERY quiet and walking distance to buses/mass transit. The house is located on a cul de sac and street parking is generally easy depending on your arrival time. Enjoy a walk to the beach or a lovely stroll around the Gold Coast's historic homes. Welcome to Alameda!

The space
Welcome!
We want you to know that we’re doing our part to
help our Airbnb guests stay safe by cleaning and
disinfecting frequently touched surfaces (light
switches, doorknobs, cabinet handles, remotes, etc.)
before you check in.

The room has been lovingly curated by a local Interior Designer. Secure coded entry into your own private, comfortable suite, a bathroom with tub/shower and cafe' table with small kitchenette (micro, fridge, Keurig, hot water kettle, PUR pitcher, dishes, glassware and utensils, NO SINK or OVEN). My 16 year old and I live upstairs; our home is a duplex and the room we offer is 1/2 of the lower level. We respect your privacy but are happy to assist you in any way. We provide you breakfast in the morning or if you prefer, the evening before. The antique marble cafe' table is a large enough work station for a laptop and/or there's a table in the garden with wifi. I have recently installed a separate router adjacent to the room for faster wifi speeds.

The garden is a perfect place to relax and I encourage you to do so.

I am happy to interact as little or as much as you like. I have a home office in the backyard and am available most days.

I am located on the edge of the historic Gold Coast neighborhood. It is quiet, safe and relaxed area. You'll get the sense that you're in a different era of time. The whole community is supportive and social; everybody knows everyone and looks out for each other.

On island the public transport is pretty slow at times but decent; all local buses can take you to the Alameda Main St. Ferry for Oakland or SF stops. Prefer BART !?, take a short bus (51) ride to downtown Oakland. There's also the AC Transit line that offers rapid transit into SF and the stop is just a few blocks away (O or W line). Once on the off-island buses like the ACT you are in good hands schedule wise.

Backyard access.

As little or much as they prefer.

It's quiet and friendly.

Yes, ferry, busses and BART nearby.

Guest access
Enter the breezeway gate, there is a security motion light to guide you to the first yellow entry door. A coded Schlage key pad for access; the code will be supplied to you the morning of your arrival. Street parking only. Please do not park in my neighbor's driveway next door (to the right); I DO NOT have a drive way. It is OK to double park to unload your luggage.

Other things to note
This is a tight knit community and we all know and like our neighbors. Please treat our neighborhood as if it were your own.
Tread lightly and respectfully please.
