Berkeley cottage description

Rockridge Cottage is located very close to the trendy shops and restaurants that line the College Avenue Rockridge district and Berkeley’s Elmwood district. The U.C. Berkeley campus is less than a mile away and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a 10 minute walk and from there a quick 20 minutes into downtown San Francisco. Walk one-block to College Avenue and you will find dozens of excellent restaurants, a host of cafes, supermarkets, a movie theater and shops to meet most every need.

The cottage is behind the main house and has its own deck surrounded by a secluded back yard. In sunny weather, the roomy deck is great for dining, reading and hanging out. There is a brick patio on the side of the cottage with a gas barbecue. The spacious 600 sq. foot, one bedroom cottage was recently remodeled from floor to ceiling and is fashionably furnished. It has oak floors and attractive, dark mahogany built -in cabinetry. It has a compact kitchen area with refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and two-burner stovetop. There is internet access and cable TV. Additional pictures are posted at the URL link listed on this web-site.

                We absolutely loved staying at Rockridge Cottage for a week in December 2013. The cottage was beautifully appointed, tidy, secluded and quiet, modern kitchenette will all conveniences. A five minute walk to College Ave. shops, and a ten minute walk to Rockridge BART. Owner friendly, helpful, and available. We plan to stay here on our next visit.

                We (husband and I) have just signed up for our third stay and wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the Oakland/Berkeley area. Both of us know Berkeley pretty well, having been connected with the University many years ago, but Rockridge was new to us and we can't say enough for this charming area or for Rockridge Cottage and its owners. After our first experience with the cottage, chosen mainly because of its proximity to family (grandchildren minutes away) and friends, we knew it was the place for us. We found that the online listing description and photos were absolutely accurate, and that the cottage was even more attractive, comfortable, and efficient than we imagined. We take great pleasure in the simple things of life and it was lovely to walk up to College Ave. in the mornings for freshly baked breakfast muffins, pick up some fruit and yogurt at a delightful little market and return to "our place" to brew coffee and dine inside or out. If we'd wanted to spend more time in San Francisco it would have been a snap, given the superb public transportation BART offers, but we lingered in and around the Rockridge area and found everything we wanted very accessible, even without a rental car (though we'll probably have a rental next time). In sum: Rockridge Cottage offers very friendly and helpful owners, an impeccably maintained and attractive environment in a charming neighborhood, and privacy yet proximity to shops, restaurants, activities, etc. What more could anyone want?

                We won't hesitate to stay at Rockridge cottage again. It met all our expectations. It was clean, comfortable, quiet and provided us with a lovely retreat at the end of the day. It was convenient to shops and restaurants while still feeling very private. We would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

                A wonderful spot that we have used a number of times for local visits. This is a very clean, well-equipped and comfortable cottage that is also quiet (set well back (behind the main house) from a residential street).

                I hope this wonderfully appointed and maintained cottage is available whenever we return to the Bay Area...I can't imagine staying anywhere else. The hosts are helpful and accommodating without being intrusive, the fee is very fair and the location is extremely convenient. EXCELLENT! on all counts.

                This beautiful well presented and equipped cottage is in the heart of 2 great districts and conveniently a short walk to the BART which zips you into the city in a flash. The owners have thought of everything you might need and have it there at your fingertips. A home away from home. Comfortable & luxurious , it made our stay in the Bay Area perfect including proximity to restaurants, theatres, cafes, and great shopping. The general area has a stylish hip vibe and we felt very safe there even at night . The cottage itself is quite roomy and you have a great sitting area as well as large bedroom, great kitchen and bathroom. I highly recommend Rockridge Cottage for a stay in the Bay Area. Well priced value for money. It's great to visit another country or state and not feel like a tourist but part of the fabric. This cottage situationally lets you into that world . And when you return , your home in your own comfy resort home away from home.

                My wife and I recently stayed at this charming rental apartment in Rockridge. It was the perfect base from which to explore the San Francisco Bay Area. Close to BART, with easy freeway access, we found this rental perfect in so many ways, both classy (in a tastfefully reserved way) comfortable and clean, safe, with all the amenities one could wish for, not to mention the thoughtful yet unobtrusive care and attention from our hosts. Without hesitation, we give this wonderful gem of a vacation rental a resounding thumbs up and eagerly look forward to staying there in the not distant future. Franck and Carol

                What can I say, it was ideal for us in so many ways. First the charm of the cottage, the privacy,the color pallet and decor was A1. Located right where it stated it was without exaggeration and parking was convenient if we needed to travel outside the walking distance. The photo's are nice but in person even better. The photo's don't allow you to feel the lushness of the linens from bedding to bath. Looking forward to our return.

                We are a couple of young people from France. We spent one week in this cottage during our trip to California. On a friend's advice, we choosed to stay at Rockridge as a good deal between San Francisco accessibility (bart) and calm neighborhood. The Cottage is a quiet and comfy place. It was very clean, and all features indicated in the vrbo information are accurate. The owner provides a high quality service. Rockridge hold shops and restaurant in a very active district along College Avenue. We are very happy of our stay in this cottage and I recommend it to anyone who wants to spend some good days near San Francisco.

                My wife and I stayed in this great cottage when the electricity in our home went off for several days. We decided it would be fun to spend the time in the Berkeley/Oakland area for a mini vacation instead of living in an uncomfortable house with no electricity. We were so impressed with the style, condition, and convenience of this vacation rental. The apartment had just been completely remodeled with flair and comfort in mind. Everything was in excellent condition and they were more than welcoming with information about the area. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the facilities were better than we could have found in any hotel. The french doors lead you to a wonderful deck that overlooks the garden. Enjoying a glass of wine while sitting in this lovely spot was the perfect way to end the day. We spent our time in the East Bay going to museums, eating in some of the great restaurants and wandering down a shopping street a couple blocks from the apartment. All in all we had a great time and are ready to do another mini vacation there. --
