Space 2,000 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 4 nights


About the property

This house is a one story 2000 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 2 bath lagoon home on a cul-du-sac that was completely updated and remodeled 6 years ago. It is situated on a very quiet street with neighbors to the side as the width of the lagoon makes a rear fence unnecessary. You will see a lawn, trees and shrubs, a dock, water and water birds. There are covered and wind protected sitting areas in the front and back. The extensively landscaped gardens, classic redwood fencing and lagoon offers privacy, beauty and serenity seldom found in urban homes.

The interior consist of a formal living room and open floor area that includes dining area, kitchen and family room. Granite counter tops, SS sink and appliances and a large island are found in the fully equipped kitchen area. Grohe fixtures are used throughout the house, The 3 bedrooms with queen size beds are carpet with the designated kid’s room having the continuous cherry hard wood flooring. The baths have high end porcelain bowls and the whole house is set off with crown molding. The interior environment is quiet and very stable throughout the year due to radiant floor heating, heavily insulated walls/ceilings and the perfect Bay Area weather.

Lagoon House
average rating of 5.0 based on 42 reviews

Family visiting from Wisconsin.

My family stayed in the Lagoon House for few days and they love it! The house is not only beautiful but spotlessly clean, very comfortable, quiet, walking distance from the beach or anywhere in the island. Thank you Anne and Alan.

Perfect family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 6 adults) stayed at the Lagoon House for our son's graduation from UC Berkeley and it was perfect! The location was great - in addition to spending time in Berkeley, one day we took the ferry from Alameda to SF (very convenient), one day we toured Healdsburg and surrounding wineries, and one day we visited Armstrong Woods. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Trabocco, based on Anna's and other guests' recommendations. The house is very charming, with plenty of room for everyone. I would also highly recommend Whisk Cake Creations if you are looking for a special occasion cake - we ordered a graduation cake and it was very fresh, with quality ingredients, and as a bonus, they delivered! Overall, this is a lovely house, in a great neighborhood, and Anna was wonderful to work with. We loved our stay and would definitely return!

The Lagoon House is a magical, serene escape from everyday noise and hectic living! My family and I enjoyed every minute of this spotless house. The quality and care for the home speak for themselves and at every turn tell you what a wonderful home the Lagoon House is. I would highly recommend anyone looking in the east Bay to stay here!

So Very Quiet and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

When I book with VRBO, I try to find really quiet locations. This house in Alameda was perfect; I think it was the quietest and most peaceful place I have ever rented anywhere. It was a quick ferry ride to SF and we drove a couple of times too (hint: take the on/off tour in SF and park around stop 8 or 9 which was $6 for 4 hours on the street and jump on the tour – Costco even had the Explorer Pass for extra savings). The bedroom with the bunk bed pictured is now twin beds which was great. The house was larger than the photos show. We are a family with teenage kids, and everyone had their own space. I would definitely recommend the house – enjoy!

Spring Break Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Traveling with my wife, mother, two teenage boys and a pre-teen daughter we needed plenty of space and the Lagoon House delivered. This was the perfect house for our spring break trip to San Francisco and the Bay area. The house is even better than the pictures with a ton of space to spread out and feel at home. The Lagoon House is located in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood close to shopping, dining and exploring. Easy access to San Francisco via the ferry or a pretty easy drive to everywhere from this location as long as you plan accordingly and don't attempt to travel during peak morning and evening commute times. Alameda is a great option to escape the busy city and offers great restaurants, parks and night life. My family truly enjoyed the Lagoon House, if you are thinking about staying in the bay area, don't let this one slip away.

Lovely! Clean, well equipped, tranquil

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with this rental & definitely would stay there again. Perfect home away from home. Only thing that could have made our stay easier would be baby gear--maybe a pack & play & a high chair could be kept in the garage? No complaints though. It is a sweet house with a delightful garden. Close walk to the park. I highly recommend it!

Greetings from Alameda! This island community is situated adjacent to familiar cities such as San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. We have beaches, lagoons, trails, parks, and within the last 10 year, shopping and dining destinations. In the 1880’s, sea captains would dock their schooners offshore and were rowed to their shoreline mansions, which still exist. Hard to believe that there are more Victorian homes (per capita) than SF. Members of the international sailing community have taken advantage of the sailing and boating facilities that are situated throughout Alameda to prepare for sailing events that will occur on the Bay through the summer of 2013.

Freeway access is minutes away with the regional mass transit BART stations one block further. Ferry service is available throughout the day to SF, Marin, Pier 29, So SF (Genentech) and the SF Giants @ ATT Park. Oakland International is minutes away and you can see departing SFO flights from the nearby regional state beach. Bus service is on the next corner with a regional shopping center (Safeway, Trader Joe’s, Walgreens, TJ Maxx, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s) less than a mile away. It is absolutely flat and tree lined with miles of designated walking and cycling paths. Seniors take advantage of the safe environment for their daily walks.
