Top 10 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Alamo, California - Updated 2024

airbnb Alamo CA
| 4 min read

Located just 45km (18 miles) east of San Francisco, lies Alamo, a beautiful suburb with a small population but quite notable inhabitants and a luxurious lifestyle. Being an unincorporated community in Contra Costa County of California, Alamo does not have its own government, however, this doesn’t affect the place at all. Walnut Creek, a city that belongs to this community, is a destination with a rather lively center, with lots of high-end retail shops and entertainment venues spread around. Furthermore, lots of greenery surrounds the area. The whole area has a somewhat rural feeling due to the lush landscape, although everything you need is just a few steps away. Naturally, the location enjoys wonderful accommodation options, which in most cases feature lovely backyards with great space. We searched and found the 10 most amazing Airbnb vacation rentals in Alamo, so take this chance to see what your options are in this laid-back US state, California.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on May 16, 2024.
