Sophisticated Living. An incredible opportunity to stay in a gorgeous historic Tudor-style single family residence in a coveted Alameda neighborhood. This generous East End home allows you to easily walk to shopping, dining, and the cinema. Just steps from the local and trans-bay buses which will transport you to San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley. For a special excursion catch a ferry to San Francisco, also just a short drive away.
While at home, enjoy the sun-lit living room, fully equipped luxury gourmet eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, and backyard entertainment space including shaded lawn, tree swings for the kids, and built-in charcoal barbecue. Roast some marshmallows or just relax around the fire in the outdoor fireplace.
This house can accommodate children of all ages, from infants who need gear through teens who need private space. Just let us know what equipment you need (high chairs/booster seats, crib/toddler bed, toys, etc.) and we'll do our best to meet your needs while away from home.

You will have access to the whole house. We will lock closets and the attic. Please do not use the equipment in the garage (like bikes), dishes in the china cabinet in the living room, spirits or wine in the downstairs rack.
We provide supplies such as laundry detergent, spices, and cooking oils.
Interaction with guests
I am not around but will be available for texting. My sister-in-law lives 5 minutes away and can help out with any questions and needs.
Ich selbst spreche Deutsch, nicht aber meine Schwaegerin.
Other things to note
Please be aware that 2 out of the 10 sleeping spaces are on an optional air mattress in the play room. We can provide a baby crib that would bring the total number of beds to 11.
The house has no air conditioning as is customary in the East Bay due to the near perfect mild climate. In July and August, you may need to open the windows in the evening to cool down the master bedroom.
We have a cat who is mostly outside. He sometimes shows up at the door. It's your choice to let him in and pet him or not. Please let us know if you are willing to feed him - if you don't, we will have somebody come by to take care of him.
- Not suitable for people with cat allergies. Milo, our cat is mostly outdoors and may sometimes ask to come inside. It would be nice if you would feed and pet him, but there is no obligation to do so.
