Read the reviews, then book an unforgettable week in our newly-constructed custom suite in Upper Rockridge with private entrance and soothing views of the San Francisco Bay. You’ll want to sip morning coffee on your brick terrace overlooking the multi-level Italianate gardens with fountain, paths and bougainvillea-laden trellis. Ideal for 1-2 persons (no exceptions) — one bedroom with down-covered four-poster queen bed, walk-in closet, and granite and natural stone bath, living room with Yamaha C3 piano, full kitchen and two sets of french doors that open to the terrace, garden, and views beyond.

The Italian Garden Flat sits in the Oakland hills on a quiet residential street, a prime location for business or vacation trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. No car? It’s only a 5 minute walk to the AC transit stop w/ direct service to San Francisco or to Rockridge BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), 10 minutes walk down the hill to a chic coffee shop and gift store, nursery, and gourmet market, or one mile further to Rockridge, the East Bay’s favorite area for trendy cafes, unique bookstores, yoga studios, chocolate shops, and international eateries for take out or sit down meals. Between the bus service and Rockridge BART, public transportation will take you to all bay area locations.

Runners and walkers will love the neighborhood hills with winding streets and homes of distinct architecture. Lake Temescal with its private beach and walking trails is a few minutes down the road, a favorite walking and picnic spot for locals.

The flat is very close to Highways 24 and 13, making it a 10-minute drive to Berkeley or quick half hour or less to San Francisco. We are strategically located between Piedmont, Montclair Village, Temescal (don’t miss Sunday morning farmer’s market!) and Rockridge. Nearby universities include UC Berkeley, California College of the Arts, Mills College, Holy Names University, and many others. Maps, hiking, shopping, and other books and pamphlets are available in the flat for you to use. The Oakland hills are full of amazing hiking and biking trails maintained by our East Bay parks system, many of them no more than a 15-minute drive. Jack London Square is accessible by bus or BART and from there you might want to take the ferry across the bay to San Francisco!

There are endless choices of restaurants within a 15-minute drive, but you’ll also find the full kitchen set up with stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator. We’ve stocked some basics for you, along with coffee and tea to you started your first morning. Of course, we also provide towels, linens, WiFi and cable internet, and television with satellite service.

~ San Francisco bay and garden views
