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.

Perfect - Perfect - Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there with 3 coworkers for a long out of town work week - It was so nice to go "home" to such a beautiful warm home to unwind. Home owner was amazing and easy to reach - I will definitely stay here again - maybe for vacation next time!

Our Alameda Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this beautiful lagoon house. My daughter has been living in Alameda for 4 years now. We spent the week of Thanksgiving here again so we could visit with her. The open floor plan and large, well- appointed kitchen allowed us to cook and enjoy each other's company at the same time. It was also nice enjoying the serene lagoon and watching the ducks while having our morning coffee. It really felt like our second home.

Comfortable luxury

  • 5 of 5

My family loved this beautiful lagoon house. Lots of room to spread out, a gorgeous kitchen , two good bathrooms - really all you could want including a caring responsive owner even if she lives in Hawaii ( There is a friend you can call for local emergencies etc., We had no need to bother her) . My German nephew took lots of pictures because he thinks it would be the perfect house when his family visits. You will love the calming patio after the busyness of SanFrancisco.

Even the floors are beautiful. Uber can get you anywhere but do take the ferry at least once.

Graduation

  • 5 of 5

The perfect family spot; on a quiet street and ample parking. With my son graduating, we were able you accommodate eight of us (Grandparents to Grandkids). The large open kitchen family room made for great conversations and reconnecting. Very clean and well appointed, made if feel like a home and a place to rejuvenate after being in the city all day for ceremonies.

Reunion at Lagoon House

  • 5 of 5

Seven adults and a teenager stayed at the house and all had a wonderful time. Two more adults and their two children stayed nearby and we all got together almost all the time for a wonderful family reunion. Lagoon House provided the perfect place for family story telling, lots of laughter, good food and reconnecting with a quiet living room, busy family room/dining room/kitchen and a lovely patio looking over the Lagoon. Alameda was the activity center and The Hornet and St. George Spirits (for the grown-ups) were both favorite destinations. Friday night at the Oakland Museum of California and Saturday night dinner at Pasta Pelican followed by ice cream at Tucker's convinced everyone from Virginia, Indiana and Washington State that they really want to return soon. We all hope that Lagoon House will be available to welcome us back!

Beautiful house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of four plus two "kid-friends". Everyone had plenty of space. The kitchen was well-appointed. The house was modern and spotlessly clean. Next time we visit the Bay Area, I will definitely try to rent Annegret's house again.

Map

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.
