Whalers' Island is a planned community in Foster City, California. Approximately three quarters of the 206 homes are located on the waterfront of the Foster City lagoon system. Whalers' Island is located in neighborhood six of Foster City near Farragut park. All homes are single-family dwellings and the neighborhood is zoned R1/PD.
Whalers' Island was built in 1976 and 1977 in two sections called the Landing and the Island with six distinctive three and four bedroom floor plans. The architecture style is based on a New England Salt Box design that you might find in a New England fishing village. The AIA awarded Whalers' Island a Sunset Magazine Western Home honor award in 1977 for this unique architecture.
Whalers' Island is a California common interest development governed by the Whalers' Island Homeowners Association. Whalers' Island common area amenities include two swimming pool areas, three lighted tennis courts and a picnic/BBQ area. Waterfront residents have recreational access to the Foster City lagoon system from their rear yards and many residents keep their boats tied to the lagoon bulkhead.
