The Rockridge Bungalow is the lower unit of a classic California Bungalow Duplex in the heart of Rockridge. It is a spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment that is sunny, bright and cozy and fully outfitted with style - including a flat screen TV, DVD player, mini JAMBOX for music and free Wi-Fi.
With over 700 square feet including a spacious yet cozy bedroom, separate living room and sunny eat-in kitchen plus a beautiful private deck with a dining table and fully-fenced yard - this space is truly a home-away-from-home yet steps away from the action. For families traveling with a small child, we can provide a portable crib and highchair and there is a small sandbox in the yard.
Rockridge is a hip and vibrant neighborhood and home to College Avenue - a bustling shopping district with numerous shops, cafes and highly rated restaurants such as A`Cote, A16, Box and Bells, & Soi 4.
Other Rockridge attractions include; Market Hall - a world class gourmet market, Rockridge Library, Frog Park, Temescal Farmers Market and a nice selection of trendy shops. You are also minutes away from two other shopping/dining destinations - Piedmont Avenue and Temescal - home of the infamous Bakesale Betty.
Other East Bay features include; beautiful hill and bay views, miles and miles of hiking and biking trails, Jack London Square and easy access to the gorgeous bay and waterways for sailing, windsurfing or a sunset ferry ride to San Francisco.

California College of Arts is 1 block away and the BART station is only 5 blocks away which is a very quick and convenient way to visit San Francisco.

About the owner: Hi, I'm Michelle, owner of the Rockridge Bungalow and I look forward to hosting you. Oakland is a great vacation destination with numerous offerings. Only 20 minutes from SF but with much better weather, not to mention a much better value. I personally love the vibrant restaurant scene and enjoy sharing my culinary adventures on my blogs - www.rockridgebungalow.com/blog/ and www.gather365.com/dine/ - check them out for my latest local recommendations!
Why the Owner Chose Oakland: The super convenient Rockridge location cannot be beat!
