The Space

this is a modern, fun oakland 1 bedroom in the heart of rockridge, ideal for two to three guests..only 3 blocks from major shopping destinations along bustling college avenue and rockridge market hall. Farmers Markets, Restaurants, Shopping, Cafes and Bars are all close by.

Brand new pillowtop deluxe queen bed!!

complimentary bottle of wine & fruit bowl upon checking in.

2 blocks to BART and San Francisco is only a BART-ride away!

The Neighborhood

What i love most about Rockridge is how close i am to the College Avenue shops, restaurants, bars and cafes. I also like Lake Temsecal being so nearby and being able to walk to BART to get to the City (SF).

Getting around

Getting around is so convenient. The BART Metro (Rockridge Station) as well as many AC Transit bus lines are all very close.

  • My flight was delayed. George made arrangements for me to get into the apartment after 11 pm. We enjoyed six great days in the East Bay. Everything worked well...the bed was very comfortable....and having two TVs was nice. The bottle of wine George left for us was delicious. The location of the apartment is perfect for visiting the East Bay. Its a short walk to the BART station from which you can go to a myriad of interesting places. I'd stay here again when I visit the area.

  • I just returned from 7 days at George's apartment. What a perfect location. There is easy access to all that the Rockridge area has to offer plus a BART station if you are adventurous. George is wonderful, responsive and gracious. He left some breakfast goodies and a bottle of wine. He has a terrific collection of Nancy Drew Mysteries...one of my all time favorites. I was in heaven. the people upstairs do move around a lot at all hours...interesting but not bothersome at all. Enjoy!

  • This place is great and George was a wonderful host! He was great about communicating, and checkin/out was very easy. His place is very comfortable, and he even left breakfast in the fridge! Incredible. It's also worth noting that there is now a real bed in the apartment (seems to have replaced the futon in past reviews). I live a few doors down and booked this place for my parents' visit. They loved it. The location is great for Rockridge Oakland and getting into the city (40min on BART).

  • George's place is great. Conveniently located near college avenue and all the lovely cafes of the area, this place is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities that you'll need. Parking is easy to find. baRT is only a 5-min walk away. George left us notes in the house that made us feel comfortable and also gave us precise directions on where everything was and what to do with everything after we left. Would highly recommend!!!

  • George was very available to accommodate any needs. Great location, neat little pad.

  • Great spot. All the positives other reviewers have mentioned are true--the space is clean, comfortable, and in a great location. **George is super easy to work with, friendly, quick to respond, etc. And who else leaves fruit and wine for the guests?**

    As folks have mentioned, there's a futon mattress on the floor rather than a full bed, and College Ave. is a 3- to 4-block walk--not right outside your door. Also, I heard the upstairs neighbor walking around very early (before 6am) and very late (after midnight) both days.

    Bringing those up only as cautions, not as criticisms. Overall this is a great spot and, as I mention, George is a pleasure to work with. I will look forward to staying here again!

  • We found George's apartment to be clean, comfortable, and convenient. Everything inside worked properly. There was even an espresso machine that we enjoyed. Dealing with George was easy and reliable. If you are into media, the apartment is fully equipped. On the downside, the apartment is not quite on College Ave, as listed on the site, but it is close enough. The big living room window from the picture opens into a small courtyard where you sometimes see neighbors walking through to their apartments. There is very little traffic there but if you want privacy you'd have to keep the shades down. We would return to his place.
