About the Property

3 bedroom 2 bath single family house

This single family house has recently been completely renovated.
It offers a modern interior and all the amenities for an enjoyable stay, easy access to San Francisco, and a central location in the Bay Area.

The living room offers comfortable seating for up to 8 and a wood-burning fireplace. A 40" TV and a DVD player with a collection of action and family movies provides plenty of entertainment. Cable TV and Internet/Wifi is included.

The dining area seats 6 to 8 (table can be extended).

The modern kitchen has a fridge/freezer with ice maker, dishwasher, sink with garbage disposal, stove with glass cooktop, large oven, microwave, toaster, and coffeemaker.

The master bedroom suite has a king size bed and 2 large closets; the attached bathroom has double sinks and a walk-in shower with a glass door.

The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed and a large closet.

The 3rd room has a bunk bed with 2 twin-size mattresses, and also has a desk and a dresser. Please note that the upper bunk bed is not suitable for adults.

The living room has an additional futon sofa (full size) that can sleep 1 or 2.

The attached garage is not available for tenants except for access to the washer and dryer.
The driveway has parking for 2 vehicles, and additional street parking is usually easily available.

The front yard offers a comfortable seating area and is semi-private from the street.
The back yard has outdoor seating and a gas bbq.

The neighborhood is family-oriented; expect occasional sounds of dogs barking or children playing.

The South Shore shopping center is 3/4 miles away, with plenty of shops and restaurants. The Park Street area is about 2.5 miles away and offers more great restaurants, entertainment, and Alameda's restored Art-Deco movie theatre.

Alameda is a safe and quiet island oasis in the hustle of the SF Bay Area, but offers plenty of entertainment and sight-seeing without leaving the island.
The town is very family-oriented, and has lots of bike lanes, parks, and high walkability.

Getting to San Francisco is quick and comfortable - use the ferry (from the Main St terminal), bus (express bus to downtown SF leaves from 2 blocks away), or BART from Oakland.
Getting to the I-880 freeway and the Bay Bridge is quick - driving to downtown SF takes 25-30 minutes outside of rush hour.

The beach is just steps from the house and part of Crown Memorial State Beach. It is 3 miles long and a favorite of local families during sunny weekends. It offers great wind surfing and kite surfing conditions for beginners and advanced surfers. A surf school and rental shop can be found just a few yards from the house. A stand-up paddle school and rental shop is located not far away at Ballena Bay.

Washington Park is just around the corner, offering public tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, and much more.

Owner lives next door - we give our guests space but are available when needed

- Rates based on 4 person occupancy
- Maximum 6 people
- The upper bunk bed in the 3rd bedroom is not suitable for adults; however there is an additional full-size pull-out futon in the living room.
- No parties, and please keep noise down after 8pm as this is a quiet residential neighborhood
