Welcome to our home with a view of San Francisco from your own private deck, in a quiet residential area in the Oakland Hills. The apartment has a private entrance and is very spacious.
****We recently put a new King bed in the main bedroom off the Living Room. Also, please enjoy our eclectic art from around the world!

The space

Welcome to our home in the Upper Rockridge area of the Oakland Hills. The apartment is perfect for couples or 2 friends traveling together who want their own bedroom, families, business people, people visiting family members who live in the East Bay, and international travelers.
It is your home away from home!
It is a large spacious 1100sq.ft 2 bedroom, one and half bath apartment that is part of our house but has it's own private entrance accessed by two flights of stairs (32 stairs to be exact). The bathroom has a shower only. Both bedrooms have a queen size bed. It is spacious and sunny with a view of the Bay and San Francisco. Hardwood floors, full kitchen with breakfast nook, living room with large flat screen TV, private deck. Beautiful art and oriental rugs throughout.
Conveniently located near great neighborhood shopping and dining in Rockridge, Piedmont Avenue, and Montclair Village and 15 minutes from University of California, Berkeley. Close to public transportation into San Francisco.
We provide coffee and tea, and breakfast cereal with milk. There is a regional park, Lake Temescal, a grocery, Village Market,and Broadway Terrace Cafe within walking distance.
Rockridge Station on the Pittsburg/Baypoint line of BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a 3 minute drive and a 20 minute walk (uphill coming back)
Note: A car is highly recommend for easy access to everything during your stay.

Guest access

Since the apartment is private there is no area that needs to be shared. It is a very comfortable and beautiful space for 2 - 4 people.

Interaction with guests

The apartment is part of our house and we are there during your stay. I greet you when you arrive and am available by phone, internet or in person to answer questions and recommendations. In case it is needed, we also have a lockbox so you can let yourself in. When we are traveling our adult son, Kevin, is available but does not live on the property.

We stayed with our two daughters and loved it. We can only echo all the positive and thankful words of prior guests. The apartment was great, super clean and our perfect family retreat during our week in the bay area. Our rental car allowed us to explore the area and tour around (perfectly easy on street parking at the apartment!) and we definitly would love to return to this location and apartment!

Susan was a great host and her place was just what we needed - a beautiful and functional space since we were there for a month. The balcony had an amazing view of the bay and lots of hummingbirds and butterflies - great for having dinner or enjoying a drink outside. Thanks Susan

This was our first Air B&B and it certainly didn't disappoint. Fabulous view and beautiful neighborhood. Susan was very accommodating. We would certainly recommend this to everyone. If we are in the area again, we would definitely stay there.

As advertised, this home is filled with beautiful and fascinating art, in a range of wisdom traditions. Always something wonderful to look at. Lovely balcony with a stunning view. Comfortable furniture and bedding. Susan provided a variety of food for breakfast and was very gracious and available throughout. Guests should know that this unit is not air conditioned and that there are many stairs down to reach the unit--so it might be a problem for anyone infirm. On the plus side, street parking was never a problem--always a space in front of the house. We would definitely return and we do recommend this lovely rental.

Response from Susan:
Hello: Thank you so much for this wonderful review! Just wanted to mention that I do note in the description for the unit that there are 32 stairs to the apartment and that there is not air-conditioning. There is a fan available and I apologize if I forgot to mention that to my guest! It is very unusual to be as hot as it was during the visit. It is probably over 95 degrees 2-3 days per year.

My husband Christopher and I love living and working in the Oakland Hills which is central to the whole SF Bay Area. We enjoy sharing our home with interesting people from all over the world. We, too, love to travel and have recently been to England, Ireland, Turkey and Costa Rica and are planning a trip to Mongolia, China and Tibet. We strive to offer a welcoming, beautiful, peaceful, and friendly atmosphere for our guests. We look forward to meeting you!
