I have live here in the Greater Bay Area for over 60 years and traveled the world and I have yet able to find a better place other then here I call "home sweet home" a little history about this home. . On October 20, 1991 the worst urban wildfire in Bay Area history struck the Oakland/Berkeley Hills. . 3200 home was burned to the ground and this home was one of them. 1994 I have the opportunity to buy the from the previous owner who just didn't have the heart or energy to rebuild his burned home, I chose to buy the lot because of the awesome view of the Bay, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge, Oakland/San Francisco and San Rafael Bridges and not to mention the year around beautiful weather . . Since I was a home builder for many years, I and my engineer friend designed and rebuild this home and I have live in this "home sweet home" since 1996, the lower level suite was occupied by my children are now married. Recently I have remodeled the suite and added a kitchen, sound proof the suite and now ready to welcome you. . .

Why Owner chose Upper Rockridge
I know a thing or two about real estate and hotel rental market since I am a local guy for 60+ years in this area. This 2 bedroom suite offer you a home setting with absolute privacy and most of hotel amenities for 1/3 of the price when compares to San Francisco hotel or inns. This suite is located to major transportation hub. A mile walk or Uber to Rockridge BART train station which will connect you to downtown SF and to SFO airport . . You can also Ferry Boat ride to San Francisco, world famous Alcatraz Island, Angel Island, Sausalito.

Safe and Quiet
My wife, and two teenagers felt very comfortable and safe. The layout was great with the kitchen and family room splitting the bedrooms from each other. Great communication with the owners. Highly recommended.
Warren's apartment has possibly the best views in the east bay. Combined with beautiful landscaping and a tranquil setting, this is an ideal spot to retreat to after squaring off with the rat race that is now the greater bay area. The apartment is private and well-appointed, and Warren is a very responsive, accommodating and kind host. Highly recommended and would absolutely book again.
awesome views ...
The suite was lovely, comfortable and immaculate. The view of San Francisco bay was incredible! We would sit out on the patio every night and enjoy the view. Warren was a considerate and gracious host. Visiting with him was a treat!
Parking on the street was easy. We will definitely stay here again when we are in town.
Gracious, spacious, views to die for
Wonderful accommodation for family or two couples, in an upscale hill neighborhood with ravishing views. We housed relatives there for a family event. Warren is an exceptional, obliging, super-friendly host. If we have another gathering, we’ll for sure try for this lovely unit again.
