A New Luxury Development Gives New Meaning to Remote Working for Homeowners
Challenging times come with the ability to reflect and determine what’s truly important. One of the features of “normal” life, the daily commute, has been re-imagined as companies have realized that physical presence in the office isn’t necessarily the key to an effective workforce. Now that there’s more acceptance around remote working and the physical connection to the office is severed, people feel free to choose where they want to live, rather than where they have to live.
According to real-estate agents, a trend has developed where Bay Area residents have chosen to move away from city living toward rural areas in a search for more space, scenery, and quiet. Whether it’s a primary or secondary home where families can spend more time than just occasional weekends and vacation, the home-buying checklist has changed. Personal freedom in a place that feels like home instead of just a place to sleep has replaced proximity to work at the top of the list.
Among the pristine canals of the Delta, the water-based lifestyle at the private boaters club called Delta Coves feels far away from the Bay Area, yet it’s close enough when you want to dip your toes back into city life. Homes feature generous ground-floor spaces that connect seamlessly to spacious back decks and private docks, linking them to more than 1,000 miles of rivers, sloughs, and canals. There’s plenty of room to breathe, and your commute time lasts as long as it takes to grab a cup of coffee and sit down.

The epicenter of social life for Delta Coves residents is the private Island Camp—a vibrant 15,000-square-foot hub for activities centrally located on the main lagoon. Start your day with sunrise yoga in the Movement Studio, hit the weights in the Fitness Center, or swim some laps in the main pool before settling down in your home office for the work day. When you’ve wrapped up, kayak back over to the Island Camp to meet up with neighbors for a cocktail at the Duffy Bar and watch the sun set over the Delta.
Now open to residents to use and visitors to tour, the Island Camp also has a Club Room where you can curl up with a book, play pool or shuffleboard, or hang out with family and friends. Enjoy the outdoors at the Game Pavilion, an indoor-outdoor fun zone with ping-pong and foosball just steps away from sandy beach fire pits and the Duffy Bar, created from a retired Duffy boat. With a commercial event kitchen, the Game Pavilion is also the spot for parties and barbecues, where you can unwind in the fresh air with views of the lagoon.
The ultimate boaters’ club, Delta Coves lets residents get back to nature in style—away from it all, and yet not too far away from all the things you love about comfortable living. Once you give up the stressful daily commute, it’s surprising how much extra time you have for the good things in life.
