Charming studio that is completely private with its own entrance, and lovely views of green hills across the valley. Enjoy the outside seating patio, on our little ridge. We sit above a quiet neighborhood with nature all around. Fully furnished, shower and small hotel style kitchenette. We are only 40 stairs up above the valley floor, so it is a quick walk downtown. Well behaved dogs are welcome with an additional $15/night pet fee.

The space

The space is the downstairs master room of our peaceful home. You have a private entrance and the room is closed off from the rest of the house. We live on the valley floor, but are 40 stairs up on the side of Rockridge, making you feel like you are in a castle. The high iron content of our soil has long made our property a magnetic pole. There are ancient rock bowls carved into the ridge top by the indigenous Miwok's who once inhabited the region.

The space is newly remodeled and Clean! It is a studio apartment with a Queen bed. There is a small hotel style kitchenette with all needed utensils, a microwave, coffee maker, and small fridge with a freezer. You have your own bathroom, with a roomy standing shower. Your front porch provides a beautiful view of the hills across the valley and an outside area to relax. Free WiFi and fast internet provided.

We also accommodate pets for an added fee of $15/night.

Guest access

This is a completely separate studio with a private entrance, that enters through our furnace/laundry room. The front porch with seating and grilling is also your space. There is access provided to the side yard of the property for your pet. We ask that you stay on the lower level of the property, and respect our privacy on the upper level, as we do the same for you.

Interaction with guests

We leave interaction up to you as the guest. We live upstairs, so are always available if you have questions. Otherwise we look to respect your privacy. We are typically home and will provide keys and an overview of the place. If we can not be there upon arrival, we will arrange for your access.

This place is very close to wonderful shops, spas, restaurants, hiking trails, and public library. The room is very tidy, nice, and clean. I especially enjoyed seeing several deer and a fawn near the house. No complaints here!

David and Erica are thoughtful hosts who provide a comfortable space in a great neighborhood. You're close to town and nature. You have everything you need for a nice weekend stay. My advice is to travel light if you can. There is a steep climb to the room. All the better to be closer to the trees.

Perfect place which was exactly as described. After the hustle and bustle of San Francisco it was amazing to get back and it be so quiet you could here the insects chirping. Great host who met us even with a late check in. Be mindful if you have a lot of luggage that the steps up could be tough if your luggage is heavy. Apart from that it is perfect.

I just moved from Miami and I was looking for a temporary place to stay while my apartment was ready to move in. I stayed for 2 weeks and it was perfect. Great location, clean, and very relaxing. David and Erica are great hosts. I definitely recommend!
