The Space

It is your french chalet retreat, with a zen twist. 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 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 $25/night! We are experienced dog sitters, and are happy to watch your pup, to allow you more flexibility. Sitting fees apply based on your needs.

Guest Access

This is a completely separate studio with a private entrance, that goes through a shared laundry room. The front porch with seating and grilling is also your space. There is access provided to a fenced garden area on the side 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. If we are home we will provide keys and an overview of the place. If we can not be there upon arrival, and we are out we will arrange for your access.

The Neighborhood

Close easy walk to downtown. In a quiet neighborhood, with friendly neighbors, providing a safe and comfortable atmosphere.
