We thought the Rockridge Studio was fine. The locations was great. We were able to walk to restaurants, grocery store, Starbucks, etc all within 15 minutes. The studio itself is nothing fancy, but everything you need. Lots of parking and very quiet.
the place was exactly as described. cosy studio with a sunny patio. the kitchen was fully equipped and the laundry facilities also worked fine. there is a big supermarket just across the street. the BART is a 15-20 minute walk away via beautiful and colorful college avenue for connection to SF. the place can get a little chilly since the house is quite old, but the heating works fine. We loved it!
I stayed at this location for about a month. When I arrived, Judy had left cookies for me and a coffee maker. The place was very clean, had cable, plenty of blankets, laundry outside and lots of parking. The location is near lots of public transportation and close to the grocery, in between Piedmont and Rockridge streets. I would recommend this place to anyone! Thanks Judy.
The studio apartment was lovely! We were in the area to visit our daughter and it was conveniently located to her house along with shopping areas, restaurants, coffee shops and cafes. The apartment was clean and comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. I definitely would recommend it. Judy answered any questions we had and checked in to make sure everything was okay. Great stay!
Judy's place is a great rental for the price. Although I will say that it feels a bit more like a basement apartment than first floor. The humidity/mold levels are quite high, very little natural light, a bit cold without the wall heater running (which they ask you to limit), light fixture held together with tape and there is noise from the upstairs neighbors.
On a more positive note, it was very clean and the couch and bed were super comfortable. This was very important to me, as I was staying there for two weeks while 7 months pregnant. So luckily I felt super comfortable. The laundry access was great. It's also a really fun and safe neighborhood with easy parking.
We didn't get the chance to take advantage of the garden patio but I heard people out there enjoying themselves. Overall, I would say that you can't beat the price and would recommend it. Thanks for your hospitality Judy!
Thank you Stacy for letting us know of your concerns and our conversation afterwards. We don't always know these things until a guest lets us know!
We checked and found some mold in the bathroom and had it treated. there are three heating sources in the studio and we ask you to turn them off when you leave or use the house furnace first before the electrical heaters. The studio warms up quite nicely. It is a really great neighborhood to explore with Blue Bottle coffee just down the street!
The Rockridge Studio was a great place to stay while visiting family in the Bay Area. It was a perfect location for me with walkable distances to both the Piedmont Ave and College Ave shopping districts. It is also a straight shot by car to the 880 Freeway and also a straight shot by car to the Lakeshore and Grand Avenue neighborhoods near Lake Merritt. I was alone on this trip, but the studio would be quite ample for 2. The studio is a basic clean and well run place to stay with written instructions on how to do everything from telephone and Internet to public transportation around the East Bay. Judy is very straightforward and easy to deal with, and I liked the nice touch of being welcomed with scones and fresh flowers on the kitchen table upon my arrival!
Judy's studio was great. Much larger than it looks. Very comfortable bed, quiet,and we had parking right out front every night. Perfect location for walking to Safeway and dining places. I will need instruction on the convection oven next time, which we hope to be soon. Thanks so much.
