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.

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.

5-star accommodations with a view over the San Francisco Bay! We've stayed in 30+ AirBnB or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s in a dozen countries over the years, and this was by far the nicest. From outstanding architecture and top-notch furnishings to lovely art and thoughtful touches all contributed to a wonderful stay for my birthday. My partner was initially preferred to stay in a hotel, but was so comfortable in Susan's flat that we ended up spending much more time there than expected. Note that this flat is on a steep hill so you'll need a car to get anywhere, but is a 3-minute drive to the freeway and about 8 minutes to College Ave with lots of restaurants (& Trader Joe's), so it's actually very convenient.

We enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again. Anyone will certainly enjoy the beautiful neighborhood and the scenery is spectacular.

Susan was a gracious host and easy to get in contact with. Booking response was prompt and seamless. Listing is sort of an in-law unit on a lower floor from the lovely main home in the lower Oakland hills area near rockridge. Note there are two flights of stairs to enter the side private entrance, but living in the area myself, that is nearly unavoidable in these beautiful hillside homes. Unit is very large and more than comfortably fits two couples. Large balcony with views of the bay is a big plus. Thanks for a great stay Susan!

A perfect peaceful place to stay with access to the Bay Area in the hills outside the daily hustle bustle. A great balcony to listen to the birds and look over to San Francisco.

Susan's home is a really nice, independent apartment.,it is well furnished, with beautiful art throughout, and it has a great view. A car is probably recommend able because it sits up in the hills, but it is nice and quiet and great for strolling the neighborhood.

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!

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!
