About Michelle Syracuse
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.
Michelle Syracuse purchased this House in 1998

worked well for our visit to Berkeley
We stayed here while visiting our son at Berkeley. Delightful little space. Lots of light in the living room, but darker in the bedroom (which I like). Lovely porch if it's warm enough to sit/eat outside. Best for 2 people as the second two people sleep on air mattresses. But definitely doable with four as we had, just requires some flexibility. Michelle is a great host. Very easy to reach and responsive to a couple needs that we had. Definitely glad we had a rental car as it's a 10-15min drive to campus. Parking on street is a little challenging, but we always found a spot within a block. It's a pretty steep walk down the driveway to the unit, if mobility is an issue that could be difficult. There are several cute little shopping/eating areas along College Ave between the VRBO and campus.
Relaxing, comfortable space, clean, well fitted with distant view of Mount Tam and beautiful sunsets
Close to restaurants, shopping and public transportation.
The Bungalow was well equipped with everything we needed. The location was perfect too. Looking forward to our next visit
Lovely lower flat in a wonderful Oakland location
I highly recommend the Rockridge Bungalow. It was a perfect location for our family of four, who were returning to see old friends in the area. (After 25 years in Oakland we moved out of state in 2015.) The kitchen was well-furnished and the bungalow was well-maintained. Excellent value for the price! From here you can easily visit Berkeley, San Francisco, and other Bay Area sites. We loved being able to walk 5 minutes to a grocery store and stock up for our four-night stay. One caveat: The driveway down to the apt. is very steep, as stated in the description, so this may not be a good fit for someone with mobility issues.
This is a wonderful place to stay. The Rockridge location is super convenient and the apartment itself is charming with nice sized rooms that allowed you to spread out and relax. I would highly recommend it and hope to stay here again in the future.
Lovely, clean, tasteful, cosy cottage
I stayed four nights in this cottage, which is actually the back/garden room of the home. It served my needs really well, my needs being a quiet retreat in Rockridge where I could write. Very sweet.
