About the property

Elegant touches, luxurious finishes, reserved parking, privacy, and a panoramic

The apartment is located on the lower level of an Architect’s beautiful Mediterranean styled home, but has complete privacy with a separate entry and patio. The decor is warm, modern, and welcoming. Windows overlook a sea of California oak and bay trees to an amazing view of the new Bay Bridge tower with the Golden Gate Bridge beyond. Two parking spaces are always available on the street in front of our home, then one flight of exterior stairs from parking to the apartment’s patio and entry.

The apartment can sleep up to four guests, with a new queen-sized bed in the bedroom plus a new queen-sized sofa bed (with an upgraded gel mattress – very comfortable!) in the living room. There are hardwood floors and tasteful furnishings throughout.

The kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops, dishwasher, gas oven and cooktop, microwave and large refrigerator. The large elegant bathroom sports a heated marble floor, marble counter top and bathtub with overhead shower. There is a large closet and plenty of dresser drawers for your belongings. The apartment is naturally cool in summer, and has radiant heated floors for cool days in the winter. A laundry room with full sized washer and dryer is available for your exclusive use, owners have their own laundry.

But the best part is the can watch the sunrise illuminate downtown Oakland and San Francisco, enjoy ever changing sunsets, or perhaps witness a carpet of fog crowned by a clear blue sky. You will delight in the ever-changing view!

About Marianne Miller

My husband and I are both architects specializing in health care design and construction. We have three grown children, our son is a Pilot in the Air Force and our two daughters live and work in San Francisco. We are always very busy with work, at the gym, or other adventures. We love to travel.

Marianne Miller purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Marianne Miller chose Oakmore

We love our home because it has a GREAT VIEW, has easy freeway access, and is well designed. Our place is spotless, comfortable and has everything you need.

What makes this apartment unique

We only have one adjacent neighbor (with no children) so it is very quiet and parking is always available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Erin and her family were wonderful and thoughtful guests! I hope they will visit again.

grandparent's Oakland hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This Bridgeview Apt in the Oakland Hills was perfect for the two of us. While it is a small apt, this place was amazingly comfortable. And all the necessaries that one would need are right in here. The bed is so perfect for an excellent night's sleep after a long day of sightseeing and baby sitting. We loved the Bay view especially from the patio dining area. The kitchen was so well equipped that we only needed to buy a few groceries. The extra spices, sugar, butter, coffee, and breakfast treats were very much appreciated. A real plus is the oversized warm bathroom and the laundry facility. This VRBO is in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The hosts are very interesting people and were so helpful. We love this place and will be back.

As good as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fine week staying at the bridges view VRBO in the hills of Oakland. The location is really good - near enough to the 13 and the 580 to have easy access to everywhere we wanted to go and a very comfortable apartment to return to in the evening. Like everyone else who has reviewed this property, we became big fans of the heated bathroom floor. The owners were very accommodating and besides that it's not too bad to wake up to a view of both the bay bridge and the golden gate bridge.

Beautiful House on the Hill

  • 5 of 5

Renting this 1 bedroom apartment was the best decision we made for this trip. The apartment itself was very cozy, clean and very well maintained. have all the amenities needed. The homeowners didn't tell us about the heated bathroom floors; we could have slept in that room it was so comfy. The homeowners were extremely accommodating. Allowing us to stay a few hours longer because of our late flight. The home was close to the supermarkets, 10 mins from the Train station, and perfectly located for us to exercise in a safe area; from the traffic.

Thanks Marianne and Greg. We WILL be back

Oakland is centrally located in the Bay area and enjoys great sunny weather year round. Our neighborhood is called Oakmore Highlands and overlooks Dimond Canyon Park, which features a wonderful hiking trail. It's a very nice walking street, with friendly neighbors. Also very popular with bicycle riders.
