Guestbook comments from the owner

Katherine's home is always a 1st choice for us and highly recommended for those interested in looking for a place to stay. It's clean, roomy, and close to all of the great Rockridge restaurants + shops. We've had our crew at her house in the past and will always reach out to her for future accommodations since we like it so much!

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

Nice little guest house behind the owner's house. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths. Master was large and comfortable, and the breeze at night comes through the window nicely. Guest room and family room could use some ceiling fans (like the one in the master, which was heavenly) to help with air flow. Great, clean house with everything you need. The owner is there to help and is very nice.

During our stay there was some construction going on and the outside of the property was in disarray but once inside, it didn't bother us. It was so wonderful to be able to walk to the grocery store, restaurants and shops, and most importantly to the BART station. It was a 10 minute walk (with kids), right up the street. 15 minutes on the BART and you are in the San Francisco Embarcadero area. It was nice being able to spend the day in the city and train home for dinner. There are comfortable couches and a large TV with DirecTV, perfect for winding down at night. The dining room table is large and the perfect place to have a meal.

A great place for a family of up to 4!

Perfect location and perfect home

  • 5 of 5

I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about my experience in this beautiful home. There were only two of us staying but since I have family in the area it provided a great space to invite them over, barbecue and enjoy each others company. The open concept living area was idea and the kitchen provided everything to cook delicious meals.

Totally love the skylights throughout that open to encourage air circulation and because it is set back behind the main house there is total privacy.

Although I grew up in the Bay Area this is the first time I was able to explore the Rockridge area. If you don't have a car you won't lack for things to do because there is so much within walking distance and BART is close by.

Check-in and check-out was seamless and I loved the fact that information about the neighborhood was readily available in a notebook.

Would definitely come again and just hope it's available for my bi-annual trip to visit family. It is just perfect!

Tranquility in Rockridge

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property to stay at in Rockridge and indeed the Bay Area with easy access to everywhere. The house has everything that you'll need, room to relax, comfortable beds and is more spacious than the photos would suggest. As it's tucked away it is quiet and peaceful, though the whole neighbourhood is. There's great eateries, bars, coffee houses, grocery stores and interesting shops all within walking distance and a wonderful breakfast stop at the Rockridge Cafe along with friendly locals. A place I didn't want to leave and would certainly return to. Katie is so helpful and accommodating and on hand if you should need something, though you wouldn't know it. Thanks for a great place and a relaxing stay.
