The desirable Rockridge neighborhood is one of the friendliest, safest and most beautiful areas in Oakland. The apartment is centrally located just a couple blocks in either direction to the hip and highly walkable neighborhoods found on College, Claremont and Telegraph Avenues. You will be delighted to find an abundance of local shops, markets, eateries, cafes, pubs, boutiques, parks, playgrounds and more. Here is a link to our neighborhood website for more details. http://rockridgedistrict.com/
We are also only three blocks to the Berkeley border and a bit over 1 mile to the UC Berkeley campus. Eight blocks to Trader Joe's and nine blocks to the Whole Foods! Also very close to other great neighborhoods such as Temescal, Piedmont, Lake Merritt, Montclair and the lovely hills and redwood forest are just a ten minute drive away.
In addition to the urban experience offered by this location, we are a 10 minute drive to the Bay and the Redwood Forest in the hills near our home. Our location also serves as a gateway to launch explorations across Northern and Central California including places like Napa/Sonoma Wine Country, Lake Tahoe (Snow sports or Summer Fun), Muir Woods Redwood Forest, Yosemite National Park, Giant Sequoia National Park, Russian River, Sierra Nevada Mountains, California Coastline & Beaches (Mendocino, Point Reyes, Bodega Bay, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel, Big Sur), etc...
Just a couple blocks to the bus lines and 8 blocks to the Rockridge BART station. A 20 minute BART ride finds you in San Francisco. Pop into the city for an outing. But you could chose to forgo transportation and walk to your hearts desire accessing pretty much anything you need.
The apartment is on the ground floor and is completely private with a separate entrance. There is plenty of street parking on the block and normally the space in front of our house is open. We will provide access instructions to the apartment as the time approaches by giving you a key code that you will type into the key pad. This will allow you to come and go as you please without needing to meet with us to get a key.
