About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

This house is located in a beautiful, quiet and absolutely safe neighborhood with plenty of things to do. Swimming pool, with heated Jacuzzi, is across the road and the public golf course is 2 min drive away. There are extensive paths along the beautiful lagoons for walking, cycling or jogging and the SF Bay, with the ferry terminal and views of San Francisco, only a 10 minute walk away.

This home is a great base to explore SF and many other attractions in Northern California such as Napa Valley, Monterey, Carmel and Silicon Valley. San Francisco can be reached by express bus (there is a bus stop few steps from this house), scenic ferry service or BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). You can even catch a free ride into the city in the morning with commuters. The city is only 16 miles, a 25 minute drive, away. Oakland International Airport is 10 minutes away and 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.

This is a lovely light-filled, comfortable home of 1,700 sq ft with cathedral ceilings and modern furniture making it a unique place to stay. The kitchen has granite counter tops, top of the line appliances and is well equipped for any kind of cooking. There is a large eat-in area for casual meals with table and 4 chairs. It comes with a microwave, refrigerator, gas stove, toaster, dishwasher and garbage disposal and is very well stocked. The main area consists of open plan living room and dining room with Italian sofa and modern Italian dining set. The ground floor has natural wood flooring and a powder room.

The large master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a comfortable California king bed with high quality linens and a bathroom en suite. There is an elliptical exercise machine, which can be removed if you don't want to use it. The 2nd bedroom has a queen sized bed with very cozy warm décor and a full bathroom next to it. (There is an additional room that will be locked and unavailable). The entire upper floor has plush carpeting.

Enjoy the flat screen TV with cable, Blu-Ray, Netflix, Wi-Fi and hardwired connectivity. The house is fully stocked so feel free to use condiments, dry goods, paper supplies and soaps for washer and dryer, if you wish. The local Safeway supermarket, CVS drug store and excellent local restaurants (Japanese, Chinese, Mexican and pizzeria) are a 2 min. drive or a 15 minute walk away. Many more restaurants are within a 10-15 min. drive.

The entire house is decorated in modern and calm motives but without feeling cold. The house has a small back garden with furniture and a water fountain where so many birds, including hummingbirds, enjoy bathing. This house can accommodate 4 adults easily and is perfectly suited to a young family. You will feel like you are in a vacation resort community.

Perfect vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely perfect, everything was exceptionaly clean, very well-maintained and tastefully decorated. The owners, Maurice and Jihee, welcomed us personally and showed us through the whole house and made us feel right at home. We were provided with all the information needed to operate all of the appliances, the audio/video equipment and the high speed internet. There is also a garage with an an automatic garage door opener that can be used, unfortunately our Ford Expedition was a little bit too high. The house is perfectly located if you want to explore the Bay Area and San Francisco. Only a short 10 minute walk from the house is the ferry terminal where you can catch the comuter ferry to San Francisco, instead of having to fight the traffic and pay for parking in San Francisco. The entire neighborbood is very well kept and there are several restaurants, stores and a Safeway within walking distance. We enjoyed not only the pool, which is right across the street from the house, but also the long walks along the water (with a view of SF) through the neighborhood.

We were 4 adults and stayed for 7 nights and would have loved to stay much longer. Should we ever come back to the Bay Area, this would definitely be our first choise again. We can highly recommend this vacation home.

Greetings from Germany to Maurice and Jihee, thank you for a wonderful time in your beautiful house.

Peter, Uli, Sarah and Patrick.

We rented this beautiful house for a week and were very impressed. The owners are really great , friendly and very accommodating. The house is exactly as on the pictures : very generous , clean and tidy. We were more than impressed. Unfortunately we only had a week in San Francisco and Oakland . But we will definitely love to come back and book this house again. Again many and sincere thanks to the owners. Petra & Juergen Munz / Germany

Owner's Response: The Munz family were very nice guests. They kept our house very tidy and in order. They impressed us even more for changing the bed sheets for us in the master bed room before they left knowing that we will arrive at late night on that day. Thank you Jurgen and Petra so much for your kindness and staying at our house. We will welcome you back on your next trip to California.
