About the property

Please see the important notes at the end of this description:

Reuniting with long-lost relatives? Hitting the water for a family reunion? This may be the perfect getaway!

With this house there’s room for luxurious amenities, home-like comforts, and plenty of memory making. Upstairs and downstairs kitchens make this the perfect multiple family destination.

The large back decks have eastern exposure out of the afternoon wind and sun with fast water 6 minutes away. Enjoy the included stand up paddle boards, covered pedal boat, and sit on kayaks. We have one of the safest swimming areas with no current and little boat traffic in the bay.

We completed a 3874 sq. ft. energy-efficient whole house remodel in 2014. There is a 20 piece patio and dining set on the upper deck. The dock has also been expanded to allow for furniture. The house has a 24-panel solar system with LED lighting and LED televisions throughout.

Our clients are not only renting a home, they are selecting a vacation experience. We make sure everything meets your expectations for a luxury vacation.

A 22' SunTracker 90hp pontoon boat is also available during your stay. Contact the owner for pricing, photos and other details.


There is a strictly enforced 14 person maximum occupancy at ALL times. Any guests over the maximum of 14 will be charged $40 per guest per day. Due to irresponsible renters, the majority of adult guests must be over 35. The property is monitored by exterior surveillance cameras. The reviews may mention large gatherings and parties. These are no longer allowed as most of them were held without prior approval.

The no smoking policy includes the exterior of the house.

Fishing is permitted using barb-less hooks and is catch and release only.

The calendar updates immediately if there are bookings or cancellations. If the dates you are interested in are blocked on the calendar for 1-2 nights, please email me for availability.

Perfect spot for our work retreat

  • 5 of 5

Scott was one of the most attentive, thorough and accommodating hosts we've ever experienced. The home was spotless, well appointed, and wonderfully spacious. Just what we needed.

Wonderful, clean, large home for our business retreat

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home from Scott for a business planning retreat. It did not disappoint! There was plenty of room for our kids (and their caregivers) while my business partners and I had our meetings. We actually held one meeting on the pontoon/party boat! It was so relaxing and there were very few other boats around (we hit a few days of good weather in January). The kids LOVED the disco ball and video game console, and the Wii, and the netflix, and the deck, and the ping pong table, and the list goes on! We very much felt cared for here, and comfortable for all four days. The double kitchens and bunk bed rooms were great for our large group too. Scott was very thorough on teaching us about the house, which we appreciated. We plan to go back each year for many years to come!

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

Our large family had a memorable opportunity to enjoy Scott's exceptional house over Thanksgiving. The house was very clean and well stocked and had plenty of space for large gatherings as well as places where folks could seek some quiet and private moments. The two masters were five starred, and the separate upper bathroom was something out of a wish. Both floors have slightly different, but beautiful, views of the water. We really enjoyed the colorful sunrises and early birds feeding off the water surface.

For our purposes, the house was perfect because it was centrally located for trips to San Francisco, Sacramento, and San Jose. Nearby Safeway and CVS proved to be very convenient and helpful.

Thanks Scott for sharing and being very accommodating!

Fantastic getaway house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house with an amazing view of the sunrise! The rooms are spacious and well furnished, the beds are very comfortable, and everything about the house is fantastic! This is our second time here and we hope to make it a family tradition. The owners are super responsive to questions and requests. We've only stayed in the winter time so we haven't taken advantage of the outdoor decks and barbeque, but we hope to sometime!
