About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom /Queen bed, 1 Bath/ shower over tub, LR- couch/full bed

This peaceful apartment is on the ground floor with the entrance off the garden. Alameda was developed in the late 1800's as a beach resort community. Today this 3 by 5 mile island is known for its tree lined streets and large collection of Victorian and Craftsman architecture not to mention the cute California bungalows.

Coming on to the island is like stepping back in time where people walk either the interesting neighborhoods or the beach. There are many owner run business from restaurants, nurseries, ice cream parlor, coffee shops, bike shops and a lovely restored Art Deco movie theatre. On the spirited end of the island you'll find award winning Rock Wall Winery, (try Scolaris for lunch while you're in this area) St. George Spirits (Hangar One Vodka) and Fraction Brewery , all facing the SF skyline. Oh, there are two 18 hole golf courses and a 9 hole par3 course at one end of the island. did I say we're only about a 15 min drive to the Oakland Airport?
This oasis is just a ferry ride from San Francisco. Or you could drive across one of the bridges to Oakland and catch the Bay Area Rapid Transit. Oakland (5 miles away) is home to Major league baseball, football, and basketball. An hours drive will take you to the wine country of Napa/Sonoma or to the coast at Half Moon Bay. A 15-30 min drive will take you to one of the Easy Bay Regional Parks with over 1,000 miles of hiking trails. Of Course there is the interesting town of Berkeley just about a 15-20 min drive north.

Within a 6 block radius of the apartment are independent restaurants, bars, grocery shopping,the beach, the movie theater, coffee shops, small shopping center (South Shore Center), many ethnic restaurants, bicycle rentals, bowling alley,public transportation, and the usual, hospital, post office and fast food.

The apartment is outfitted for comfort with crisp white linen dried by the sun, down comforter and pillows, good reading lights, hardwood floors, 2 closets, windows that open, a kitchen with the normal appliances plus sugar, splenda, plastic wrap, coffee and tea to get started, salt and pepper (the little things)- not a lot of clutter- just enough for interest.
Anticipating your needs is what gives me the most pleasure and hopefully that will be apparent as you make your self at home in our peaceful garden apartment.
