Wonderful owners/rental

My family and I have been using VRBO for many years now. Im not sure I have ever had a better host/owner. The unit was perfect for the 5 of us. The 3 teenage boys had 2 rooms and my husband and I had our own. The unit was spacious with all the amenities. The private deck and parking spot were so nice. The teenagers loved sitting on the deck in the evening. Monica and Gordon have made sure you have everything you need. They were there when we arrived to show us around and answer any questions. Alameda Island is a great place to stay, and the unit is blocks from the beach and Park St. which has many great restaurants and shops. The boys were able to walk around and go do their own thing while my husband and I did ours. We felt very safe and loved driving/walking around the area looking at the old homes/Victorians. We would definitely come back to the area and to rent from Monica and Gordon!! P.S. the 1/2 half bath was such a nice extra

Luxurious, quiet apartment near lots of restaurant

We stayed at this 3 bedroom apt. The pictures does not do it justice. The apartment is beautiful, totally remodeled in a upscale design; clean, the 1895 chimney, the redwood ceiling, the fireplace, the redwood deck and the view looking towards the beach 3 blocks away makes this place unique. Its quiet and in a great location. Many restaurants just 2 blocks away on Park Street and the South Shore shopping center in walking distance. We love the place and we will be back.
