The front yard offers a comfortable seating area and is semi-private from the street. The back yard has outdoor seating and a gas bbq. The neighborhood is family-oriented; expect occasional sounds of dogs barking or children playing. The South Shore shopping center is 3/4 miles away, with plenty of shops and restaurants. The Park Street area is about 2.5 miles away and offers more great restaurants, entertainment, and Alameda's restored Art-Deco movie theatre. Alameda is a safe and quiet island oasis in the hustle of the SF Bay Area, but offers plenty of entertainment and sight-seeing without leaving the island. The town is very family-oriented, and has lots of bike lanes, parks, and high walkability. Getting to San Francisco is quick and comfortable - use the ferry (from the Main St terminal), bus (express bus to downtown SF leaves from 2 blocks away), or BART from Oakland. Getting to the I-880 freeway and the Bay Bridge is quick - driving to downtown SF takes 25-30 minutes outside of rush hour. The beach is just steps from the house and part of Crown Memorial State Beach. It is 3 miles long and a favorite of local families during sunny weekends. It offers great wind surfing and kite surfing conditions for beginners and advanced surfers. A surf school and rental shop can be found just a few yards from the house. A stand-up paddle school and rental shop is located not far away at Ballena Bay. Washington Park is just around the corner, offering public tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, and much more.

    Enjoyed our stay very much 23 September 2016 - 14:24:00
  2. Martina and Klaus were very responsive to all inquiries and always very helpful. Their home was comfortable, well appointed, stocked with everything we needed, and the fruit and candy was an extra welcoming touch! Their home was a short walk to the beach, we walked everyday. The location was perfect and we look forward to returning! 06 October 2016 - 23:32:00

    The house is very clean. Owners were very helpful with any info we asked about. Will definitely stay again when back in this area. Thank you for your hospitality!! 20 November 2016 - 13:26:00
  5. My family of four stayed at the house for almost 2 weeks over the holidays. It was a beautifully decorated house, which was very clean and had been recently remodeled. Klaus and Martina thought of everything that people would need and want when renting a property for an extended length of time. They communicated often and let us know if we needed anything that they were right there. It was perfectly located near the beach, shops, restaurants and close to transportation to get into the city. It was also a great place for the kids...they loved the bunk beds and the abundance of fun movies for them. We would definitely stay here again next time we come to visit! 10 January 2016 - 00:23:00

    My husband, 6 month old son and I just concluded our stay at this beautiful home. It was a little big for us (being 3 bedrooms) but the cost was reasonable and the home immaculate. The neighborhood is wonderful and walkable with the beach, dog park and kids park with in walking distance. Grocery, gas and coffee was all within in few minute drive from the home. Perfect area for families! I would definitely stay here again. 27 October 2015 - 00:17:40

    From the moment we stepped through the front door, we found your home welcoming, homely and immaculate, with everything we could possibly need, provided for. From the amazing location, to the beautiful decorating, to the fully equipped kitchen and immaculate bathrooms, there was nothing at all we could fault. I would happily return there again next time we come to California. Having come so far from Australia, we were so happy that we had picked such wonderful accommodation. Thank you again Klaus and Martina, for providing such a beautiful ' home away from home'. Kind regards, Viv Thomas and family. 10 May 2016 - 10:00:00

    There was nothing we needed and did not find in this lovely and well appointed home. I say "home" rather than rental because it was a home away from home for us this week. The owners were obviously available if we needed anything but there was nothing they'd not already thought of. The home itself is light, clean and well laid out. The neighborhood very pleasant and a walk on the beach with the skyline across the bay all just a half block away. When we are back in the area, we look forward to another stay! Thank you. 20 March 2017 - 14:32:00

    Our family of 5 just spent 11 days at this lovely home. We were absolutely comfortable here, and it was the perfect place (quiet and peaceful) to return to after a busy day of sightseeing. We couldn't find fault with anything, and appreciated small attention to details, such as coffee waiting for us, plenty of fluffy soft towels, and quality kitchen implements. No old, scratched pans here! Klaus and Martina are kind and hospitable hosts. On two occasions Klaus drove us to the ferry, and later offered to loan us their electronic device for paying the bridge tolls. The location is perfect, with both the beach and a shopping center within walking distance. We would return to this home in a heartbeat if we visited the Bay Area again. 20 April 2017 - 04:43:00

    Alameda has the small town feel. It is secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city but center to most everything. The owners are very accommodating. The house and yard are very well decorated and clean. Has all the essentials and then some. I was here for business and I hope this property is available the next time I'm in town. 19 April 2017 - 13:58:00

    Just reminiscing about our trip almost a year ago to Klaus and Martina's beach house. Five of us stayed here for 5 days and we all agree it was the best vacation house. Clean, comfortable, modern, and perfect in just about every way possible. Furniture was comfortable, as were the beds. Kitchen had everything we ever needed. Enjoyed the outside as much as the inside. Thanks again Martina and Klaus for EVERYTHING! Great memories. 07 May 2017 - 04:21:00

    We (family, tourists) stayed for 10 days in this pleasantly renovated house. We used it as our starting point to explore SF, the region, and some of California's national parks. The house was clean and in very good shape. The style is modern, bright, and reminds us of Scandinavian homes. The photos from the property description give a good impression of the exterior and interior. The property is well suited for families. The owners are very friendly and help with any question you might have. We also received a lot of hints regarding traveling/sightseeing/dining etc. from the owners. Alameda has good access to highways as well as to public transport. It's easy to get to SF, the Bay Area, or more distant locations like Yosemite National Park from here. We would be happy to return some day. 30 October 2014 - 20:27:38

    This is a wonderful home. I stayed for an extended period of time and it was such a great place. It is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. In addition it is in a great location, close to the beach and shopping is nearby. The owners thought of everything to include in order to ensure you can be comfortable, prepare meals, relax and enjoy coffee on the cozy front porch, or enjoy movies or books on the couch or by the fireplace. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in Alameda. 06 January 2015 - 05:46:43

    Thank you to Martina and Klaus. We had a wonderful stay in their beautiful home. The house had everything. It is beautifully decorated and very clean and modern. They have thought of everything to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay. The owners are very helpful and easy to work with. They were there to ensure we had a wonderful stay. Great location in Alameda. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Alameda. 31 January 2015 - 12:51:25

    We stayed here for 10 days. It is very close to shopping and the water. The house is clean and comfortable. This was the first place we have stayed with decent knives. The kitchen had almost everything we needed for cooking and we cook a lot. I did not find a roasting pan, but was able to solve that by grilling the chicken. Even our twins (under 4) loved it. 08 September 2015 - 22:13:32

    We visit Alameda often to visit our son and daughter-in-law. We have stayed in many accommodations advertised on VRBO and other similar types of web sites. We have enjoyed every home we have rented so far, but this one was by far the best. It was spacious, clean, well equipped and simply lovely. The owners have excellent taste. It felt like the house was recently renovated. It was such a pleasure to be in a rental home that had high quality furnishings. The closet and sliding doors were much nicer than we usually experience in these type of rentals, as were the drawer glides, shades, etc. It is in a great location. We hope to make this our home away from home whenever we come to the Bay area. 15 September 2015 - 03:46:51

    Great place! Spacious, clean and relaxing. Martina and Klaus were very accommodating and flexible. 17 September 2015 - 21:18:13

    The house is a short stroll to the beach, well stocked and excellent host. 04 December 2017 - 13:45:00

    Stayed in this house the middle of June 2016 for 5 nights. We (family of five) knew by the the VRBO pictures that it was a nice place to stay, but the minute we pulled in the driveway, we were blown away. Walking through the gate (which we're copying at home), there was a beautiful garden with succulents and agave plants. I sat on the patio couch and read several times during our stay. Very peaceful! Then the living area was decorated with modern, comfortable furniture, big screen TV, fireplace (never used since the weather was perfect) and futon. The immaculate kitchen was well stocked. Having 2 bathrooms was a must for us, one in the master bedroom and one off the hallway. The bathrooms had shampoo, lotion, soap and LOTS of great oversized towels. The bedrooms were quite roomy, with huge closets. AND a washer and dryer! The backyard is just as impressive as the front yard. We sat outside in backyard and ate at the patio table a few times. Everything looked brand new. The owners, Martina and Klaus are awesome. We were fortunate to meet and talk with them, but they never intruded. Martina gave me great transportation information and places to shop, etc. Even though we had a vehicle, we took the ferry over to the city several times. So easy and affordable. We drove to the ferry station, parked, and boarded the ferry. Beautiful ride too! The beautiful beach was 8 or 9 houses away. Looking for a great pub/restaurant, try 1400 Pub and Grill. My granddaughter said the chowder was the best she's had since we arrived in the Bay area. Hamburgers were great as was the veggie burger. If you're a beer drinker, try Faction. The brewery is on the island too. The Subpar miniature golf course was fun. Don't be put off that its not fancy; it was quite challenging. If and when we go back to SF, Alameda is the place to stay and this house is the best! Thanks to Martina and Klaus for thinking of EVERYTHING for their guests in their beautiful, comfortable house. 26 June 2016 - 07:10:00
