About this listing
Spacious home with hardwood floors and historic details. Leafy backyard, new redwood deck, hot tub. Ample parking. Comfortably sleeps 2-4, can handle up to 6 with furnished rollouts. A historic house on a quiet street on the island of Alameda.
This historic home sits on a quiet street. Enjoy its cozy comfort and charm, and you'll be close enough to San Francisco to feel the city's energy and just far enough away to relax.
Guests will have access to all amenities and rooms of the house and yard. Plenty of space for 2-3 cars to park in the long driveway. Street parking is free and available as well.
The hot tub is smallish, perfect for 2-3 people, or 4 if they're cuddling couples.
Two bicycles can be arranged as well if requested in advance. Alameda is a great place to bike :-)
Interaction with Guests
You'll have and enjoy your privacy. We'll be available at any time via phone, text, or email if necessary.
"Lincoln Station" is quiet and sweet. There are several restaurants and shops on our corner. Littlejohn Park is just around the corner, with an athletic field, basketball court, playground, grassy hills for picnics, and running trails.
The rest of the island of Alameda has plenty to offer nearby too, and you'll be within easy walking or biking distance to the best public beach around, as well as fashionable shopping and dining on Park Street.
For public transit, you'll be 1.5 blocks from bus lines direct into San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley.
Ferries leave from a public ferry terminal on the island for San Francisco and Oakland.
Driving into SF and Oakland is easy. SF: 13 miles, Oakland: 5 miles.
Enjoy island life in the San Francisco Bay!
Bus lines pick up a block and a half from our front door and run into San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, and to several Bart stations.
Other Things to Note
The bed in the master bedroom is a Stearns & Foster king size beauty, a better bed than you generally find in top-end hotels.
The bed in the east bedroom is a double-size futon with a deluxe 13-inch organic futon mattress.
The third bedroom has been converted to a den & office. Fifth and sixth guests can be accommodated via furnished mattresses in the den, a bedroom, or in the living room.
Preferably no smoking. If you must, smoke at the outdoor patio table, and dispose of all butts and ash.
Shoes off before going upstairs. Shoes can stay on downstairs, but please de-shoe before going upstairs. We keep the upstairs carpets clean this way, and we think you'll enjoy the clean too.
We love our home :-) Just contact us and let us know if you have any questions!
