Live at the beach.  Walk to shopping. This is our favorite location.  

The ocean around the corner. Just a typical day at the beach at Wavecrest. A quiet, peaceful environment. A low density property. Two floors. Enjoy one of our two pools. A gated community with covered parking and tiny, key-chain-size, remote openers. Large storage lockers are available. Our new pool is shown below. See floor plans below.

Internet connected laundry machines. No more quarters, use your credit card at the machine! Availability can be checked online and notification when your laundry is done can be sent via text message or email. Take the guesswork out of your laundry and stop wasting time!

Walk to shopping. Located a half block back from the beach and approximately two blocks from the South Shore Shopping Center. It’s a terrific location. Walk to shopping, Trader Joe’s, Old Navy, Starbucks, Bed Bath and Beyond, banks, major grocery stores. Just steps away from the scenic shoreline and Crown Beach Memorial Park, we have easy access to bike paths, in-line skating, walking, and an excellent wind-surfing location. We are convenient to public transit (with easy connections to BART or an express bus to San Francisco), and minutes from the Oakland International Airport. From the beach, there are spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay and the SF skyline.

The TransBay bus stops at our corner. It takes approximately thirty minutes to the San Francisco bus terminal in downtown S.F. It is $4 each way or $150 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. The Express bus leaves every ten or fifteen minutes from 6:30 to about 8:15. Quick and cheap! Or take the Ferry which takes twenty minutes to S.F.

We have one bedroom and two bedrooms at Wavecrest. Great floor plans with linen closets in the hallway.
