Wonderful stay

I stayed at the Boxwood house for over a month working as a travel nurse with my daughter while we found a permanent residence in the lovely Alameda. The location is convenient to local shops, Oakland, and SF. The apartment is very cozy and well decorated. It is very private and surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees making for a serene experience. Marti makes sure that guests feel welcomed & have everything to enjoy their stay including a well equipped kitchen to prepare meals. We truly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone vacationing in the Bay Area. Thank You!

Wonderful Experience

We had the pleasure of staying at Boxwood House for several weeks with our 14 year old son. Marti and Will made us feel completely at home. We loved cooking in the small kitchen, which is very thoughtfully and thoroughly equipped. A special treat was spending time in the gazebo in the beautiful garden by the fountain. The home is on one of Alameda's most lovely streets, framed by stately trees and historic homes. We loved taking walks from the house. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and aesthetically furnished. Marti answered all of our questions, took care of all of our needs (which were few because she had anticipated almost everything). Marti and her family made us feel welcome as new members of the local community. We found it very easy to use public transportation from the apartment. I would (and have) recommend/ed the Boxwood Apartment to family and friends. It is a lovely place to stay for a couple or small family.

A delightful retreat

We spent a very happy month at Boxwood House, while visiting family and friends in the Bay area. The location was excellent, an easy drive from the Bay Bridge. From there we could go west across the bay to the city, or choose to drive through the Caldecott Tunnel to the East Bay. Alameda itself is charming, and offers a wonderful mix of history, architecture, relaxation, parks, beaches, bike trails, the aircraft carrier Hornet, (now a museum,) and plenty of interesting ethnic restaurants. Off the Grid food trucks visit Alameda every Saturday! Marti and Will, the owners of Boxwood House, were so generous with their attention to our needs and wants. We heartily recommend this rental for couples, business people, and families. Only caution is that the apartment has many fascinating objets d'art that very small children may want to examine closely. You would have to put them up high, out of reach.

A week in Alameda

Despite the bad weather, our week in Alameda was pleasant. Took the ferry to San Fran, and explored the hidden jewel that is Alameda. The apartment was cozy and well appointed with everything we needed in the kitchen. The owners were very accommodating friendly. I would most definitely stay again with hopefully better weather. Alameda is a little known secret.

Ideal Spot for Parents of the Bride

In late June 2012, we traveled from Columbus, Ohio, to California to attend our daughter's wedding in Berkeley. At our daughter's suggestion, we made arrangements to stay at Boxwood House for the wedding week. Our apartment there was delightful, and our hosts, Marti and Will, welcomed us like family. They were always available to answer any questions, or assist us with any requests.
The apartment was charming,spotless, and comfortable. It was furnished with beautiful antiques and vintage pieces, giving each room its own unique, cozy glow. We enjoyed walking the neighborhood to admire the lovely old homes and gardens. It was fun shopping and dining in nearby "downtown" Alameda. We found it quite convenient to take the ferry from Alameda to San Francisco to sight-see for the day.
We enjoyed our stay at Boxwood House immensely and would give it the highest rating. Will and Marti were gracious and attentive hosts. We look forward to returning to Alameda and Boxwood House often. We unreservedly recommend The Boxwood to others traveling to San Francisco, Oakland, Alameda, or Berkeley area. Curt and Marcia
