Sunny studio conveniently located a few blocks from Rockridge BART, College Avenue shops, and Temescal restaurants.
The studio is a stand alone cottage on our property with its own private entrance from the street.
There's a shared garden patio with a grill and lemon tree. The bright kitchen is set up for you to cook small meals during your stay.
Central Rockridge is a 5-10 minute walk away. Rockridge is a friendly and walkable neighborhood with loads of shops and charming tree-lined streets. Enjoy tasty restaurants like Zachary's Pizza, Ramen Shop and Oliveto, or shop for yourself at Market Hall, featuring a produce shop, butcher, wine shop, fresh pasta and cheeses.
A short walk south will bring you to Temescal, another popular dining and shopping destination with great Korean food, sandwiches and a cute alley with locally owned boutiques.
The Rockridge BART station gives you quick access to downtown Oakland and San Francisco. If you're driving, we're located right off the 24 freeway. When traffic is light, you can make it to downtown San Francisco in 15 minutes!
Lisa was a great host, as always. Great place, excellent location, very friendly and easy hosts. I'll be back!
I loved my stay, it was so relaxing, great studio, private, incredible neighborhood!
I had an absolutely wonderful time staying at Lisa's sweet Rockridge studio! The space was immaculate, there was lots of natural light, and the bed was super comfy. Plus, the location is ideal: walking distance to the BART (for journeys across the Bay) and all the shops and restaurants on College Ave. I would definitely stay here again!
Lisa left clear directions on how to access the property and a warm welcoming note … with some welcoming snacks. The studio provided a great home base for exploring the Rockridge area as well as easy access to BART. Lisa also recommended some of her local favorites. The studio is in a back yard tucked into a nice little Rockridge neighborhood. I was able to walk to everywhere I needed to be including BART trips into SF and Berkeley. Kitchen space was adequate and bathroom was clean. Great little home base in Rockridge to explore east bay and sneak into SF.
I visit Rockridge a few times a year and this is my favorite place to stay in the area. Lisa and Devin are friendly. The place is clean, comfortable, quiet and inviting. The bed is very cozy. There is easy street parking, but there are many shops and restaurants in walking distance. I appreciated how flexible they were on check in time, given it was during the winter holidays.
We were welcomed by caring email from the owners even before we arrived. They were most concerned about our comfort. They emailed us several times to make sure all was well even after we arrived and checking on us mid week . The apartment is lovely, so clean. we felt immediately at home. This is a very private location in quiet neighborhood. We had a great week here and hope to return often!
My name is Lisa and I live in Oakland with my husband, Devin.
We moved from San Francisco last year, and are excited to be setting some roots in the East Bay.
When I'm not working, I love to watch films, listen to music, hike in the many expansive parks and beaches of California, travel to places near and far, and eat delicious foods.
Hopefully our studio is a good fit for your travels in the Bay Area!
