Very comfortable stay in Rockridge!
Very comfortable stay in Rockridge!
My husband and I stayed in Grace's apartment for 2 weeks after relocating to the area while we looked for a permanent home. The apartment is equipped for everything you'd need for a short-term stay - a cute kitchen with everything you'd need (we cooked dinner most nights), access to laundry, wifi, 2 comfortable couches, a large closet, and a small (tube) TV. Although it's on the 1st floor of Grace's home, it was very private and quiet. It was a little farther than we thought (and uphill) to walk from the Rockridge BART station, but there are ample sidewalks most of the way; it is a very quick drive, however. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, and Grace was very responsive throughout our booking. Definitely recommend!

Just right for our needs

We rented this studio apartment because we were visiting Rockridge. We loved the neighborhood; walking was a daily pleasure (we are in our sixties). The patio is very pretty. The apartment was very clean and well-stocked with towels and blankets. The queen-sized bed was comfortable. No problems with high-speed wi-fi, and the washer-dryer were in the room next door. The apartment was very quiet, and we had full privacy. (We never actually met our hosts, who were traveling.) Even though we were in the basement, overhead noise was not a problem. You could do without a car; the walk to the Rockridge BART is an easy mile, mile and a half, but bear in mind that the return is an uphill hike! Our deposit was returned immediately. We would stay here again--much better and less expensive than a hotel.

Why the Owner Chose Oakland:
The apartment is on the bottom floor of our 3 story home in the Oakland Hills. It has a it's own entrance and address. One of the reasons we bought our home was because of the seperate apartment. Also, we have great views of the bay, golden gate bridge and the city. We are in a great location to visit Berkeley, the City, and Sonoma and Napa.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Location, location, location.....you can walk from the house to BART. You can be in the city in 20 minutes. You can walk to great shops and restaurants. You have a great patio to entertain on and the apartment is comfortable and cute.
