Overview

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

Still reminiscing about our trip

  • 5 of 5

Just reminiscing about our trip almost a year ago to Klaus and Martina's beach house. Five of us stayed here for 5 days and we all agree it was the best vacation house. Clean, comfortable, modern, and perfect in just about every way possible. Furniture was comfortable, as were the beds. Kitchen had everything we ever needed. Enjoyed the outside as much as the inside.

Thanks again Martina and Klaus for EVERYTHING! Great memories.

Highest praise for this lovely accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just spent 11 days at this lovely home. We were absolutely comfortable here, and it was the perfect place (quiet and peaceful) to return to after a busy day of sightseeing. We couldn't find fault with anything, and appreciated small attention to details, such as coffee waiting for us, plenty of fluffy soft towels, and quality kitchen implements. No old, scratched pans here!

Klaus and Martina are kind and hospitable hosts. On two occasions Klaus drove us to the ferry, and later offered to loan us their electronic device for paying the bridge tolls.

The location is perfect, with both the beach and a shopping center within walking distance. We would return to this home in a heartbeat if we visited the Bay Area again.

Great location - Clean - Well Stocked

  • 5 of 5

Alameda has the small town feel. It is secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city but center to most everything. The owners are very accommodating. The house and yard are very well decorated and clean. Has all the essentials and then some. I was here for business and I hope this property is available the next time I'm in town.

Fabulous home and a great spot.

  • 5 of 5

There was nothing we needed and did not find in this lovely and well appointed home. I say "home" rather than rental because it was a home away from home for us this week. The owners were obviously available if we needed anything but there was nothing they'd not already thought of. The home itself is light, clean and well laid out. The neighborhood very pleasant and a walk on the beach with the skyline across the bay all just a half block away. When we are back in the area, we look forward to another stay! Thank you.

Nice location with accommodating hosts

  • 5 of 5

Martina and Klaus were very responsive to all inquiries and always very helpful. Their home was comfortable, well appointed, stocked with everything we needed, and the fruit and candy was an extra welcoming touch! Their home was a short walk to the beach, we walked everyday. The location was perfect and we look forward to returning!
