We stayed for one month in the garden apartment. It was immacuate, extremely well furnished, warm and restful. The best thing (in our opinion) was the experience of relating to the owners. No detail was missed; they extended themselves beyond what one might expect and truly cared about our comfort. They did this without "bugging" us. The bed is amazingly comfortable and the bedroom's "black out" draperies allow a very peaceful, long sleep. Just around the corner, you can see the stunning views of the city of San Francisco. The neighborhood has friendly people, and if you come close to a holiday you will greatly enjoy the festive decorations and celebration on this quiet, little street.
We very strongly recommend this property; especially it's wonderful, honest owners, Marti and Will.
Alameda is a very walkable town with beautiful public parks. All conveniences were within an easy walk of Boxwood House. The apartment was very clean and full of eye pleasing comfort. Our host made us feel very welcome. We can recommend Boxwood House.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Martha's apartment. The bed linens were very comfortable, the kitchen stocked with all we needed and we were just a short walk to watch the sunset at the beach. We also enjoyed this area of Alameda, there were several delicious restaurants close, and it was simple to catch the Ferry into San Francisco. We will definitely rent from Martha again.
The studio apartment is located in a beautiful neighborhood in Alameda a short walk to the beach. The host was very friendly and helpful.
Marti and Paige were very welcoming to us. Our first day there Paige drove us to a restaurant for lunch and later drove us to a grocery store to pick some things up for our stay. The kitchen was very well equipped which we appreciated. The apartment was very nicely decorated and the bed and linens were very comfortable. A laundromat was within walking distance to this location.
The only negative thing I can say is that there was no outdoor space to sit and relax after a day of sightseeing.
We travelled daily to San Francisco by Uber to the ferry terminal and then took the Bay Ferry across and back. This did add up over our stay but the ferry ride was lovely. We did walk around Alameda Island to the ferry, to the beach and to the mall also located near the beach. There seemed to be lots of lovely restaurants and fast food locations within walking distance to this location also.
I would recommend this apartment to those wanting a safe quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco but still close enough to visit.
The rental process was very easy and convenient. Apartment was perfectly located on a street where parking was always available. Cute, quiet, clean, and comfortable and included everything you could possibly need. The main bed was very comfy but the fold out couch not so much. Marti was very gracious! Thanks for the wonderful stay!
We spent 5 nights in the Boxwood apartment. It was perfect. The place was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed at our fingertips. Marti was a wonderful host and very helpful in every way. We would love to stay here again on our next trip to the Bay area.
