Dedicated Secure Parking. No shared spaces - You are renting the entire property with full use of patio/yard.
Discover the perfect stay just 2 blocks from the shoreline, offering an idyllic morning walk to kickstart your day. One of Alameda's most favored properties with a water tower, original hardwood floors, high ceilings, recessed lighting, ceiling fans, and a sunny window bench. The second room, complete with hanging dresser, is a versatile space suitable for an office, media retreat, or an additional guest bedroom (air mattress available with advanced notice).

You'll love our fully equipped kitchen with newer stainless steel appliances, bar seating, and a dedicated dining nook table. The most mentioned amenity in our reviews is the comfortable King bed! The full bathroom plus bedroom ensuite 1/2 bath comes with fluffy towels and premium toiletries. Please note, the washer and dryer are included for your convenience, though not listed as amenities.

The deck, an extension of outdoor living, provides an ideal spot for morning coffee, evening conversations, or simply enjoying the serenity of the private yard with mature trees and flowering plants.

15 min to OAK airport. 2 minute walk to Line 51 A and 78 AC Transit Lines Bus departs every 20 minutes to SF Downtown, BART train & Alameda Ferries. (See photos of transit lines). Home is adjacent to a Slow Street (dedicated biking and walking route) and 2 blocks from the waterfront.

Note: there are 2 rooms but only one King bed so inquire before requesting to book for tailored options. This is the perfect Flight Attendant/Pilot Crash Pad or Parents/Grandparents' Refuge!
---> We will provide renter the monthly average cost of water, electricity and gas use over a 12 month period for 2 occupants. Renter agrees to incur costs for excessive use exceeding the monthly average.

"From the moment we arrived, we knew our stay was going to be fabulous! The photos provided showcased a wonderful home; they are accurate but its even better in person! Each room is tastefully decorated with lovely artworks, interesting books and attractive furnishings! The kitchen is well stocked with lots of extras provided. The bathroom is I lovely! The bed is the most comfortable Ive had, so luxurious! A large tv was great and the back deck was such a relaxing space! A beautiful breeze each day was most welcome. Such a bonus to have a dedicated parking space too! Kendall was such a great host! We absolutely loved our stay and were so sad to leave!"

We personally manage the cleaning of our home and we've hosted professionals from Airbnb, Stratajet, Glass & Marker, Home Away, Fossil, yCentric, UC Berkeley, ADVmicrogrid, and various nearby startups, attesting to its suitability for work-related stays.

While we can't accommodate animals due to a physician-verified allergen, your safety is our priority. Home motion-detect lights, door entrance security, and driveway area security cameras are in place. As owners, we hold a CA Property Management certificate, ensuring your peace of mind throughout your stay.

FOOD: Nob Hill (2531 Blanding Ave), an all-around basic large grocery store (like Safeway) or Alameda Marketplace (1650 Park St), a junior sized "Whole Foods" – it is a collection of artisan and independent businesses and excellent place to grab some items when short on time. Vendors include: east end pizza: excellent thin crust pizza -sushi kng: grab and dash sushi -alameda natural market-avoid the lines by shopping here, more $ -baron's meats-great steaks/beef/chicken/fish -the beanery: fair traded coffee, nice brew -massage for those in knead -ching hua: avoid the happy hour appetizers -culina: nice artisan sammies -farmstead wines & cheeses: new vineyards highlighted and cheesy samples -feel good bakery: pricing is cheaper here than at the farmers market.

Day trip suggestions: 1) Take the Ferry from Alameda to San Francisco - explore the Ferry Bldg, Pier 39, Union Sq and everything that SF has to offer! 2) Explore the breweries on Alameda Naval Base (Hangar One Vodka/St. George's Brewery/Rock Wall Winery - simply the best view of the Bay Area! Walk the Alameda beaches or bike ride along the SF Bay Area Trail 3) Explore the wine regions one hour away - Napa or Sonoma Valley / Take the Wine Train!

A sample of Alameda’s notable/award-winning restaurants: Burmese (Burma Superstar), Japanese (Sushi House), Thai (Spice I Am), Mexican (La Penca Azul), Cambodian (Angkor Grill), Vietnamese (Dragon Rouge), German (Speisekammer), bar food (Scolari's), Euro (Pappo's), and Greek (Troy). If you just want a good omelet with your coffee, visit Ole's and Jim's.
