DELIGHTFUL 1000 SQ FT 2 BR/2BA EAST BAY BETWEEN BERKELEY AND RICHMOND

Richmond Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedro Bath condo (Sleeps 2-4) walk to Marina and Yacht Club

Enjoy the best of two worlds!

If you enjoy eating at good restaurants, theater, museums, or just taking in the sights of one of the most beautiful cities in the United States AND at the same time living in an area that is a federally protected conservation area, complete with bike/walking trails along the bay, swimming pools, tennis courts, a complete fitness center, then our condo in Marina Bay is perfect.

We are located 20-30 minutes north of San Francisco by car and 20-30 minutes south of wine country. Berkeley and Oakland are 10-15 minutes away. The University of California at Berkeley is a 20 minute bike ride away.

Our condo is 1,000 square feet, with 2 bedrooms & 2 full baths. The kitchen is fully equipped, with a new convection cooktop stove. The pantry is stocked with basic cooking supplies. A side-by-side washer/dryer is available for your use. Relax in our outdoor patio, complete with a kiva for chilly evenings. For evenings that are colder, enjoy the wood burning fireplace in the living room. There is designated parking for one car and lots of guest parking spaces. The condo has two flat screen TV sets: a 47” ‘smart’ TV in the living room and a 32” in the guest bedroom. Both are swivel-mounted on the wall.

Our condo is part of gated community that has 435 units and is home to a mixture of people with families, single and retired people. It is quiet and safe.

In addition to the miles of beautiful bike/walking trails, the area is home to Rosie the Riveter National Monument, Point Isabel (which is one of the few off-leash dog parks), a marina, the port of Richmond, and is a major stop on the bird migration route. There is a wonderful playground bordering the marina and a park nearby where you can have a cookout and look over the bay at the skyline of San Francisco. The charming town of Point Richmond, with a variety of restaurants, historical sites and a playhouse is a short drive away.

All this at an affordable price!

About Ann Sanders

The owners, Ann Sanders & Deborah Heller, both retired, are bi-coastal. We also have a home in Provincetown, MA. We plan to use our condo as well as rent it since we have grandchildren and friends in the Bay area. We look forward to having guests enjoy our home.

Ann Sanders purchased this condo in 2012

Why Ann Sanders chose Richmond

We were attracted to the unit because of the 2 BR/2BA, lovely patio, fireplace, and parking right outside the front door. It is sunny and bright, has comfortable space with privacy if friends come to visit or 2 couples choose to rent. We also like the opportunities for walking, swimming (two pools and hot tubs) and a well equipped gym. In addition, it has easy access to San Francisco & other East Bay communities, as well as wine country to the north. Lots of good shopping and restaurants in Oakland, Berkeley, El Cerrito and Richmond, an easy car ride away. San Francisco is 25-30 minutes away.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is a corner unit with parking right out front. It is comfortably furnished with Cable TV, wireless. The kitchen is equipped for people who like to cook and the outside patio is great for breakfast on a sunny morning. Benefits also include quiet neighborhood, pool, hot tub & fitness center plus 24-hour security. Wood burning fireplace in unit, mature trees, bay shore walks, beaches, parks, fishing, ships/tugboat viewing in harbor, extensive Bay Trail, short distance to Restaurant Salute, picnics & BBQ on Monument Green, off-leash dog walking at Pt. Isabel, live theater & museums. Sailboats/kayaks are easily launched into the protected harbor and guided trips to nearby islands are possible via East Bay Regional Park system.

Great condo but not an ideal location

  • 4 of 5
We spent the month of June at this condo with our two young children. The condo complex is very lovely with a nice pool right outside the condo and a terrific greenway right behind the condo. The condo is very comfortable with nice furnishings and accommodating kitchen. The Bay Trail is amazing and we spent hours on it each day and evening. You are a 2 minute walk from the Bay and a view of SF on a clear day.

The drawbacks for us were that this complex and unit are not very kid friendly and it is far from everything. The drivers in this complex drive very fast - there are very few children in this complex and the unit itself is not decorated for a family. We had to pack away a ton of stuff when we got there to make sure it was safe from our kids accidentally breaking anything.

However, the biggest disadvantage of this unit is the distance from everything. You are only 18 miles from SF but the traffic is horrible so you decide to take the train. Well, from parking lot to the El Cerrito BART stop to the Embarcadaro stop in SF is 50 minutes (so that is nearly 2 hours round trip by train to SF). You do not want to use the Richmond train station - it is scary. The El Cerrito BART stop is about 2 minutes further away and much nicer but the parking lot fills up by 7 am so you have to park in the shopping center and walk over, then you take a 30 minute train ride (after you buy your tickets and wait for the train) so it takes a total of 50 minutes one way - this makes for a long day especially since once you get there you have a good walk ahead of you.

Also, the Marina Bay community is beautiful with paths, a playground, nicely landscape common areas, and beautiful homes and condos but once you leave this area it is ugly!! The community is surrounded by industrial complexes and once you pass that you want to lock your door. We thought the area was very unattractive.

Overall, the complex was lovely but the general area was anything but that. We would recommend this unit to a couple with no kids and people with older children. Happy Travels!!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the bay path & other amenities the condo complex provides. However, I am a bit puzzled by your comments about our condo not being child-friendly. You and I had a lengthy conversation about this in which I emphasized that the condo is not set up for small children and we state that clearly in the VRBO/HomeAway description. You said that that was not a problem inasmuch as you travel with your small children all the time.
And, yes, traffic in to San Francisco can be frustrating, so we feel fortunate to have BART stops so close. Our experience on BART has been favorable, including finding a parking space. Sounds like the time you were there was extremely busy. And, unfortunately, as I explained, the main road to our condo is closed due to a major construction project, therefore the detours do go through areas that are more industrial.
Thanks for taking good care of our condo.
Ann

Month stay for surgery

  • 5 of 5
We stay here for 1 month as our daughter had to have surgery in Oakland. The condo worked out fantastic. Very well equipped for cooking and just cruising. Great size and very comfortable. Located across from the pool and hot tub which was great. The walking trail was perfect and well used.
We will stay again when we return to the City.
Mahalo for the great stay!

Ideal for us

  • 5 of 5
This wasn't merely a rental but a home which the owners graciously opened to us for a month. The fact that it was a home was reflected in the care shown in the furnishings, the artwork and the presence of every amenities we could possibly need. The kitchen, though small, contained an abundance of equipment and supplies needed for cooking, which we eagerly took advantage of - facilitated by a short 15 minute drive to the fabulous Berkeley Bowl food store (the nearest Safeway is only a 5 min. drive).

The place was spotless, peaceful and safe. We two enjoyed abundant space. The San Francisco Bay Trail, literally just outside the unit, provided pleasant morning and evening walks while viewing the Bay, the City, the bridges, the birds and the many wildflowers blooming alongside. A moderate walk or a short drive led to pleasant Marina Park as well as two good restaurants, Salute and Assemble. The latter was in an historic building at the very interesting Rosie The Riveter National Historic Park.

Important to us was the location of Pt. Richmond because it provided easy access (with a car) to the whole East Bay, to San Francisco via the Bay Bridge or BART and to Marin County and the whole North Bay via the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. These were all places that we needed to go to visit friends and relatives. It was quick and easy if you traveled outside of commuting hours.

Having previously lived in the area, we were familiar with the surroundings and things to do, but a detailed reference book that the ownershad compiled for their guests provided much helpful information about the area (including restaurants) as well as clear instructions for how to use the equipment and the amenities of the house and the condo complex. Our communication before, during and after our stay was with Ann who was extremely responsive and helpful. This place was ideal for us. We were sad to leave and hope to return again soon.
