We’re the little island in the bay! While we’re close enough to see the mainland, we are actually an island so only ways on or off are bridge or tunnel. We are also home to thousands of historic Victorians so just walking or driving around, it is always scenic. As an island, we have gorgeous bay views of both Oakland and San Francisco skylines, with several docks around and opportunities for water excursions. Although we have a very small town feel, we’re only a 25 min drive to the city (no traffic). We are also very close to the bustling Jack London Square District in nearby Oakland. A 20 min drive away is Berkeley, home of the Cal Bears and the famous Chez Panisse Restaurant in the North Shattuck District.

Food scene

We have quite a few notable restaurants and stores in our historic Park Street Downtown District. Burma Superstar, Sidestreet Pho, Spinning Bones, Ohgane Korean BBQ, Scolari’s, The Star on Park, and Wild Ginger are just a few. Tucker’s Ice Cream is another must visit. The creamery is a town institution. Likewise, our historic theater and cineplex is nearby.

This is the best coffee in the East Bay! If you’re in the Berkeley neighborhood, definitely stop by. They have an incredible outdoor space. All of their coffee is hand-picked and freshly roasted and their pastries are all home-made. They’re super popular so there may be a little wait but it is definitely worth it!

Shopping

A long term tenant on our property runs an extremely adorable store selling vintage jewelry, hand-made soaps, bath bombs, fragrances and more! She’s also does custom printing on tote bags, t-shirts, etc. Be sure to swing by her store on Park St!

Sightseeing

Gorgeous beach with full San Francisco skyline views. Lots of water sports to do during the summer but is an amazing spot for a picnic or some afternoon relaxation all year round.

Into hiking? Tilden Park in Berkeley has so many great trails to tackle, from beginners to advanced. The Seaview and Big Springs Trails loop is a favorite of ours for moderate level hikers.
