About the Property
Sleeps 1- 5 - extra fee for more than two guests for use of second bedroom
What makes this Flat so desirable is the privacy you can have, if there is more than one guest. The two bedrooms allow that and also the small office area off the white bedroom for a quiet place to work as it has a door that closes. Everyone can have a place of privacy to read, take a nap, watch their own TV, have a private telephone conversation, etc. Also, you can access Netflix for movies in the Living Room TV, and a DVD on the side of the TV in Living Room . WiFi is provided. There is also a luggage rack in each bedroom.
A walk to the beach in the morning or evening to view the skyline of San Francisco and the evenings' gorgeous sunsets makes this island unusual. Nearby there is bus transportation and a short walk to a busy downtown shopping area where there are a variety of many types of cuisine on Park Street. Two ferry locations to take you across the Bay to the Embarcadero in San Francisco. Bus nearby to take you straight to Bart. Also a new multiplex movie theater. There is quick, easy access to all major freeways, 20 minutes from UC Berkeley campus and many excellent restaurants on College Ave and Telegraph Ave, and nearby Jack London Square within a short distance from Alameda to Oakland or Berkeley. Fun to take a stroll on Park Street with consignment stores, antiques, lots of small unique stores, Thrift Store shopping. Oakland Museum nearby with great exhibits. Free the first Sunday of the month. We also have a new library that is truly an asset to Alameda. In Jack London Square there is a Farmer's Market on the weekends, also a Premier Jazz Club Yoshi's, is located in Jack London Square and many others close by venues for live music and dance lounges. Also, many upscale restaurants there and only 10 minutes away by car. So much to do in this area that is close by.
This is also Vacation and Corporate Rental.

Car: Not Necessary
An island is a special place to live in, especially here in Alameda. I live within walking distance of every type of activity there is on the island, so it makes it possible not to have an automobile because of its public transportation choices. You never get enough of sight seeing the beautiful historic homes here in Alameda, and the various neighborhoods. It has an invigorating climate, manicured parks, homes graced by shade tree-lined streets covering the island's 12 square miles. This is a city where many people walk and bicycle around the city. Several tennis courts, paddle board lessons on the beach with wind surfing, kite surfing, kite flying, sand castle contests. There is also the Alterena Playhouse that features an opportunity for residents to act in a small intimate playhouse. A beautifully restored art deco, multi-plex theater. The population is approximately 75,000 residents. The views are breathtaking, especially from the beach. It's an island that is full of activity with many choices of what to do either here are near here, since it has numerous transportation possibilities.
Year Purchased: 1976
About the owner: I am sole owner of the property. I've raised three grown sons in this beautiful home, I have worked in the business world, in the aeronautics industry, legal, as a Court Reporter and Paralegal on environmental law suits, in a hospital setting, in Commercial Real Estate for 10 years for the Port of Oakland, and finally found my passion in the hospitality industry as an Outside Food Salesperson supplying restaurants all over the Bay Area; as Director of Special Events at Gramma's Bed & Breakfast just down the street from UC Berkeley campus, a wedding planner, wedding consultant, event planner, meeting planner, fund raiser for Marines returning from Iraq. At Preservation Park, an event site in downtown Oakland, I was booking 100+ events and meetings a month. Also set up an entirely empty new event site for the City of Oakland along the Estuary for special events and meetings. Also hosting events in my backyard and catering them. Now I have the privilege of hosting guests from all over the world and enjoying meeting guests from all over the world
Why the Owner Chose Alameda, CA, USA:
I have kept this large property in excellent condition considering its age. It has a gorgeous double lot and is beautifully landscaped. I have done many special events here and catered, including several small weddings over the past 18 years. As people enter through the front door, their exclamations are amazement over its uniqueness of interior design and its feeling of Cape Cod or French influences. It's sunny and bright with beautiful sunsets in the evenings. A lovely house to live in and be a guest in, also it is very quiet on this dead end street. Privacy if there is more than one guest.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The benefits of staying here are free parking for one car in driveway. The parking in this neighborhood after 6 PM is not easy to find so having free parking in my driveway is a real plus! Laundry facility downstairs at $5.00 per load due. The best of all is that you are able to walk or bicycle to the beach, shopping on Park Street, with many unique stores to venture into. A mall shopping center at South with a Safeway, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Redbox there to rent movies, Kohls, TJ Maxx, Ross, across the street from the SF Bay, close to the Oakland Airport, and the best weather in the East Bay area. Close proximity to entertainment venues, a large stadium for professional sports and entertainment. Easy access to transportation to San Francisco by Ferry, Bart or bus. The backyard offers comfort relaxing and reading a book, grilling, dining al fresco. The beauty of the interior offers golden sun in the evenings and a romantic environment with a warmth of a home on the beach.
