Alameda is one of the oldest cities in the Bay Area, very family friendly, yet very centrally located on the bay so a great retreat for a family discovery of the Bay Area

The space

The house sleeps 8 comfortably, with 5 bedrooms, 2.5 baths (total sq ft 2,600 or 250m2) Very large backyard (6,000 sq feet or 550m2) with direct access to iconic Lincoln Park with swimming pool, tennis...

Alameda is one of the oldest cities in the Bay Area, is very family friendly and has great restaurants. It is best known for its Victorians, marinas, and iconic beach facing SF. It is a 10-min hop to downtown Oakland, Lake Merritt, and 30-min to SF - by car, bus, or ferry!

Please note: We had 5-star reviews on 20 reviews when hosting just the upstairs before we converted the house back into a single family residence.

Guest access

The entire house is yours for your stay: all 2600 sq ft of it, and large 6000 sq ft backyard

Interaction with guests

We are available if you need help, always only a phone call away.
Also the housekeeper comes once a week (included in the rental price) and can be reached for any urgent matter.

Other things to note

Our 2 cats will be on the premises: they are super sweet, indoor/outdoor (no litter to change) and their food is taken care of by an automatic dispenser.
They are super sweet, usually sleep with our daughters, and never bite or scratch. The only thing they need- if you like cats- is love!

Our family of 8 stayed comfortably. The house was great and the location was perfect for us. House is very roomy and worked great for our big crew. Would definitely recommend Raphy's place.

My family had a nice experience staying in this home and liked the neighborhood. Raphy was out of town, but Nancy was filling in and was very helpful.

Raphy var bortrest men hon hade ordnat så att vi fick träffa en annan och vi hade tillgång till grannar och deras telefonnummer. Huset passade oss perfekt som stor familj, läget var lugnt och trevligt. Vi trivdes jättebra och kan varmt rekommendera boendet.

I am a designer and work in health tech. I am originally from Paris and have called the SF Bay Area home for over 12 years with my husband of 15 years and our twin daughters. My husband also works in tech and is an artist.

We are very mellow and enjoy beautiful places, art, and good company. I am a big fan of ashtanga/vinyasa, long walks on the beach, swimming, & fresh, simple foods. Love reading and a good movie!
