About the property

Stylish, Spacious & Newly Remodeled 2BR on Quiet Street, Highly Walkable

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tisha and her family were lovely guests. Tisha is so friendly and very easy to communicate with. They were out and about having a good time and they left the place very clean. We would love to have them back again!

Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Lolo was super helpful and went above and beyond to make sure my stay was comfortable. I really enjoyed my time here. Everything was extremely clean and well organized. The bedding and towels were high quality and the furniture was comfortable. It was a good night sleep, very quiet. Great neighborhood, a short walk to Rockridge for all the great restaurants. Also very close to Whole Foods. I would definitely recommend staying here, I plan on visiting again! Thank you Lolo!

An excellent choice

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July so I'm late with this review but didn't want to miss commenting. First of all dealing with the owners was very smooth and pleasant. The set up and completion of the transaction including some adjustments we made was easy. The location was wonderful. A delightful residential area. We walked to coffee and the farmers market, easily drove into the city and surrounding area for a show and fine dining. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, we had two adult couples and cooked for ourselves often, kitchen had what we needed and the beds were comfortable. Having the owners on sight is comforting, they were friendly and available but not intrusive at all. When coming to the Bay Area this is a great place to stay!
