Property description

THE SPACE
This is a completely private and fully furnished suite on a quiet tree lined street in a fantastic walkable neighborhood. The apartment has just been renovated from the ground up in 2014. The space has an open floor plan that is stylish, functional and comfortable. A modern feel with designer touches yet uncluttered. (Note: this is not somebody else's apartment.)

New polished concrete floors throughout. Fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances including refrigerator, dishwasher, gas range, microwave, and ample cabinet space. The dining area seats six comfortably. There are two private bedrooms each with a queen sized bed and bedding, large closet, bedside tables and chest of drawers. The living room has a flat screen TV, ample seating and a sleeper sofa that pulls out into a queen sized bed with bedding. We can also accommodate one more person on a twin size rollaway bed. We can provide you with a pack 'n play, highchair and toys for your wee little one. There is also a spacious private bathroom with shower, tub and a washer dryer unit. Private small patio with potted succulent garden and bistro table. Short and long term stays are welcome!

We also provide the following:
linens, bedding, towels, kitchen supplies, iron, ironing board, hair dryer. (We do not supply personal toiletries for the bathroom aside from hand soap).

This is a smoke free, pet free, kid friendly home.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
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.

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.

This is a tight knit community and our block is very diverse with many types of families, professionals and hipsters.

GETTING AROUND
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.

GUEST ACCESS
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.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS
We are the owners of this house, this is not a sublet. We live upstairs if you need anything. Otherwise we give our guests total privacy. We are a family of three and have a 5 year old boy. We can share toys with you if you'd like.

HOUSE RULES
Just a a few things:
1. Please don't rent from us if anyone in your group is a smoker. This is a smoke free environment. Even if a guest has not smoked inside, smokers leave an odor behind. No smokers allowed or smoking of any kind in the house or anywhere on the property. An additional cleaning fee may be charged to mitigate any smoke odor left behind in the apartment.
2. No street shoes indoors, slippers or house shoes only please.
3. No pets.

OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
-- Check in time: after 3pm, Check out time: before 10am
-- 2-3 night minimum stay over weekends during peak seasons.
-- Short and long term stays are welcome.
-- This is a smoke free, pet free home.
-- Note: this is not somebody else's apartment, so it's not cluttered with other people's stuff.
