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.

The neighborhood

We have lived here for over 30 years and love our neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly and most nights there is a beautiful sunset. It is within walking distance of Lake Temescal Park with large grassy areas for picnics and of course the lake for swimming, hiking, walking, running. Also there is ample on street free parking.

Getting around

A car is highly recommended for easy access during your stay. We are located within minutes of freeways 13, 24 and 580.
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). For information on all public transportation go to 511.org

There is a bus on Broadway Terrace. Again, I recommend a car as it is more convenient. We have easy access to freeways for exploring other areas of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.

Other things to note

Ample on street free parking.

The apartment was beautiful with many unique furniture and art pieces, and a great book collection. Susan and Christopher are wonderful hosts with seamless communication and check in process.

We thoroughly enjoyed our almost month-long stay in this beautiful airbnb. The hosts, Susan and Christopher, were very friendly and welcoming, making us feel right at home. Their house is gorgeous and they care enough to appoint the apartment as nicely as they do their own home, which I think is very unusual. The vista from the apartment is the best we've seen in the bay area, with lush greenery framing the view of San Francisco and the bay. You will feel lucky if you have the opportunity to stay in this apartment. We would definitely stay there again but, since we're moving to the area, we'll just have to recommend it visitors.

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!
