The best apartments in Alameda. Live on a secluded lagoon. Walk two blocks to shopping and Starbucks. Three blocks to the beach with none of the noise or traffic. Quiet and serene.

Driftwood wraps around the lagoon. Our boat dock is at the left and the pool behind it. This is the finest apartment property in Alameda. We are Alameda’s “best kept secret!” A gated community in a private garden setting. Secured parking with remote gate openers. Come see our new fountains. Brand new exterior paint. We offer spacious one bedroom one bath, two bedroom one and two bath apartments. We have a multitude of floor plans, tons of closet space, private storage lockers, pitched shake roofs, and a terrific serene setting. Walk to shopping, Trader Joe’s, Old Navy, Starbucks, Bed Bath and Beyond, banks, major grocery stores. A short stroll the beach. Our beautiful swimming pool sits on a serene lagoon, where you can feed the ducks and watch egrets (really) land.

The TransBay bus stops at our entry! It takes approximately thirty minutes from our front door to the San Francisco bus terminal in downtown S.F. It is $3 each way or $100 for a one month pass which gives you unlimited travel on all AC Transit buses for the month. Give them a call at 510.817.1717. Express buses leave every ten or fifteen minutes from 6:30 to about 8:15. Quick and cheap! Or take the Ferry.

Our convenient location is 2117 Otis Drive (corner of Otis & Willow). The entrance, located at the wrought iron gate on Otis, is where you will find the entry system. Press the # sign, wait for the dial tone, then push 00 for the Manger. Driftwood will knock your socks off!
