PEACEFUL GARDEN APARTMENT ON AN ISLAND IN SAN FRANCISCO BAY

Alameda Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This peaceful apartment is on the ground floor with the entrance off the garden. Alameda was developed in the late 1800's as a beach resort community. Today this 3 by 5 mile island is known for its tree lined streets and large collection of Victorian and Craftsman architecture not to mention the cute California bungalows.

Coming on to the island is like stepping back in time where people walk either the interesting neighborhoods or the beach. There are many owner run business from restaurants, nurseries, old fashion hardware stores, ice cream parlor, coffee shops, bike shops and our own nationally noted Rosenblum Cellars, and their award winning zinfandels. You'll also find Rock Wall Winery and St. George Spirits plus new wineries opening around the area frequently.

This oasis is just a ferry ride from San Francisco. Or you could drive across one of the bridges to Oakland and catch the Bay Area Rapid Transit. 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/Somona 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.

Just a note- the apartment isn't located where the map shows It's near the South Shore Shopping center near Willow and San Jose.-sorry can't get the map changed.

Much better than a motel and cheaper

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here while visiting my daughter in San Lorenzo. The location was perfect. The furnishings look different than the picture; I think even nicer. The kitchen was well furnished, the bed was comfortable and the unit was very clean. It was convenient having the washer and drier available. As mentioned in other reviews, having a designated parking space is wonderful in Alameda. We took the ferry to San Francisco one day, a great way to get to Fisherman's wharf or downtown. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

Second Visit, More to Come

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed here in November of 2012 visiting our daughter and son-in-law. We returned in July 2014 to meet our new granddaughter who was just two weeks old. This is a great place to stay on the island. Clean, comfortable, and a great location. Betty is great to work with and the Banana Nut bread is a treat. As long as my daughter lives in the area, we will likely be back at least once a year. Cheaper than a hotel, more room, and all the comforts of home. Easy walking distance to a lot of what the Island has to offer, and off-street parking if you drive (something that is at a great premium in Alameda!). Two notes: I would recommend bringing a few extra towels and face cloths with you if you plan to stay a while and don't want to do laundry several times a week. If you require handicapped access this property might not be the best choice as there are several steps into the apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Joe, I'm honored that you chose to stay a second visit. I also appreciate your comments. These help me to better meet the needs of our guests- like telling them there are 6 steps into the apartment- I never actually counted them. No need to bring extra towels- just ask- we have plenty. Hope to see you next year.

This was great.

This was great. I would definitely stay here again.
In some places a "garden apartment" is in the basement, but in this case it is an apartment in a garden setting.

Cozy, warm and perfect space for mom

  • 5 of 5
My mom stayed here for 5 weeks over the holidays. It was the perfect place for her and she now refers to it as her "apartment" in Alameda. We had to call the owners a couple of times with questions and they were extremely responsive and nice. i would highly recommend.

Cozy, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay in June 2013 during a military transfer. The apartment is in a great location, in the heart of Alameda, in a quiet neighborhood, close to restaurants, shopping, playgrounds, and the beach. We appreciated the shaded courtyard and free parking. Betty is a wonderful hostess. She lent us beach toys and chairs and even provided home-made banana bread on our first day! The apartment is cozy, clean and comfortable, and was an excellent extended stay option for our small family.

Wonderful location, very clean & peaceful

My husband, son(15) & I recently stayed in #3. It was perfect for us, reminded us of our first apartment together. Free WiFi for my son kept him happy & the location & peacefulness of the area was perfect. Everything was very clean, & the apartment had everything we needed. The shower was really good which is a big plus in my book. Beds were comfy. B was great to deal with...we'd definitely stay here again. We were also walking distance to St. Joseph's Catholic church & walking distance to Blue dot cafe, which was our favorite! We highly recommend B & this lovely apartment. P.S. having a designated parking spot was a HUGE plus. It's the little things that add up.
