Spacious 1 bedroom apartment (950 sq. feet) with fully upgraded modern kitchen in the great Rockridge location.
It is located on the quiet street off Claremont Ave with a little park right across the street. It is within walking distance to all the attractions of College Avenue as well as Temescal.
It has been completely renovated in 2012. And it is not someone else's home.
It is a spacious flat in a duplex with a large shared backyard.
The apartment is filled with light. It has one bedroom with a queen size bed facing the back yard with a redwood tree.
The kitchen is very modern upgraded with high-end appliances including a viking refrigerator, and gorgeous granite counters with a 4 person seating area. It is stacked with everything you need for comfortable stay: coffee machine, toaster, pans and pots, silverware, stemware, plates, spices.

The back yard is shared with neighbors. There are patio chairs and a table in the back yard for your use. You can enter the back yard through the fence door on the side of the house.
There is a driveway where you can park your car as well as plenty of street parking nearby. The freeway is close by behind the park but you will barely hear it as windows have been upgraded in the both bedroom and kitchen.
Walk to College Avenue with numerous restaurants, coffee shops, gourmet groceries, Trader Joes and Safeway - all within about 10 minutes walking. In addition to College Avenue attractions you can walk to farmers market off Claremont Avenue on Sundays (10 minutes). Walk to a hip Temescal neighborhood with great restaurants and stores (10-15 minutes) and children's Frog park.
Light rail train Bart station to San Francisco is 10 minutes walking. The train will bring you to downtown San Francisco in less than 20 minutes. There is parking lot with Zipcar and CarShare cars next to the Bart station - great way to get a car only when you need it.
UC Berkeley campus is 10 minutes driving or 5 minute drive to California College of Arts.
Highway access is very close so you can get to San Francisco driving in less then 15 minutes if there is no traffic, it is literally just across the Bay Bridge.
Feel free to ask me about the area as I have been living here for 15 years and am loving it. There are many beautiful parks near by where you can hike and enjoy unbelievable views of the bay, bridges, San Francisco, Berkeley, hills.

I was very pleased with this airbnb experience - Irina was a welcoming host & so responsive to any questions. The apartment was immaculate, and comfortable.....Located within easy walking distance to both Rockridge & Temascal, the location was perfect. I will certainly be back!
This was our first airbnb experience and Irina was very patient and helpful in "teaching" us how the system works.
The apartment is indeed gorgeous, especially the kitchen-dining room area. The location is wonderful: near BART, good walking to and around the Rockridge and Temescal neighborhoods, our old favorite walk up through the hills in the Claremont-Uplands 'hoods. Very happy to be there.
We bought "light" groceries from the nearby Trader Joe's and found everything we needed in the fully-equipped kitchen.
Thank you, Irina, for a lovely experience.
This space was beautifully appointed, very clean and totally modern. The neighborhood was quiet and perfectly situated. Our stay was lovely.
The apartment was very nice and clean and loved the location but the noise from the neighbors was a problem. They have a baby that was making alot of noise that kept us awake.
We really enjoyed Irina's Rockridge apartment. It had everything one could possibly need for an enjoyable stay. Very easy check in and check out. We would stay again...
The apartment is fantastic, especially the kitchen which is first-class. We cooked and served Christmas dinner here and it was beautiful. Irina was terrific in getting back to me quickly and making me feel welcome and attended to even though she was out of town. Though there is a small park across the street, the apartment is very close to the freeway, which can be heard and seen through the front and side windows. The bedroom windows look onto peaceful trees and a sweet backyard. Surprisingly, the freeway sounds and headlights did not bother me at all, and I would come back to this apartment in a heartbeat. It was just a bit of a surprise when I arrived, as were the worn steps in front of the house. Again, not really a problem because the interior of the apartment is spectacular, but it gave me pause when I arrived. Also, as mentioned, the apartment is in a duplex with another family and the toddler next door can be heard pattering around. I enjoyed it. This place is great, filled with light and in a quiet neighborhood. Ten-minute walk to BART and Rockridge and easy parking. Thanks, Irina!
Amazing home in a quiet neighborhood. One of the best places I've stayed.
I am originally from Ukraine but have been living in the beautiful Bay Area in California for 15 years now.
I love music, travel, skiing and snowboarding, diving, kite surfing. I play traditional Japanese taiko drums. If it is a beautiful nature place I would like to visit it, if it is a fun sport I would like to try it.
Looking forward to new trips and new connections with air bnb help.
