The Space

Nestled amidst the luxurious neighborhoods of Montclair and Rockridge, this spacious, ground- floor studio overlooks a vibrant Eden replete with a luscious garden sprouting herbs, succulent vegetables, a variety of flowers and even a redwood. As you enjoy your morning espresso or afternoon green tea on the outdoor sunny patio, you'll know life is good.

Our apartment has a warm, modern decor with a queen-sized bed. You will appreciate the organic and environmentally friendly bedding.

You would sit comfortably at the kitchen table as you dine on delicacies from a local Farmer's market or on your own creations from the BBQ grill. If your family's head cook wants a vacation from the kitchen, you just need to choose a world cuisine, because we have the most exquisite cuisines to the most deliciously affordable ones. (See guide for suggestions.)

We love being just a five minute walk from Lake Temescal, where you can jog, swim, fish or take a leisurely stroll. You also may want to explore Lake Merritt and its surroundings, or the many trails at Redwood Regional Park - all 5-10 minutes' drive away.
In the Village of Montclair, you may enjoy bagels to burgers, art galleries to eclectic boutiques, cafes, grocery, bookstores and ice cream/yogurt parlors to your heart's content.

Transportation and parking are also very convenient. There is free street parking. We are a mile from Rockridge Bart which is an easy 20 minutes ride to San Francisco's downtown, and a 2 minute walk from the Transbay bus stop. Popular attractions such as Fisherman's wharf, Union Square (which hosts a variety of high-end shops) and the famous island of Alcatraz are all within your reach. We are very near major highways which will take you on day trips to Santa Cruz (90 min), San Jose (50 min), and to the vibrant galleries of Sausalito and Tiburon (40 min). Don't miss the grand Muir Woods, wine tours in Napa, and mud baths in Calistoga.

Above all, we love to share the area's secret spots and gems, so ask us if you are interested in any particular activities or locales. We strive to create a remarkable experience for our guests so they will cherish their visit and learn to love this place as much as we do.
