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. The 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.

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.

Why Marianne Miller chose Oakland

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

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

Another great stay at Bridges View

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay again at the this apartment while we were in Oakland visiting family. The apartment is very attractive, well furnished and has everything you need. The heated bathroom floor is a special treat! But what most impresses me about this property is that the owners don't do things cheaply just to get buy. They obviously want the property to be "top-notch" and are willing to spend the money to keep it in good condition. The couch had been replaced since our last visit and perhaps the mattress was new. Dishes, glassware and silverware are attractive and plentiful. While there is private parking, it is off the road and there is quite a slope to it, so it can be a challenge to get in and out of one side of the car - a minor problem but worth mentioning. All in all, it is a wonderful apartment in the Oakland Hills!

Owner's Response: Thank you Janie for taking time to write this nice review. We plan on repaving that parking area, I'm glad you mentioned it. And yes the bed mattress is brand new. Hope to see you again!

My husband and I had a great time staying here we were visiting from Texas for a wedding and our wedding anniversary vacation. It was better than staying in a hotel. I had a few disapointments one being there is no central a/c so it gets pretty hot in there. Also it was advertised about the heated bathroom floor the floor did not heat up during our week long stay there, but overall i would stay again. There is also an amazing view outside.

Lovely Stay In Oakland Hills

  • 4 of 5

Spent three nights over a September weekend at this property. First impressions were good based on the layout & facilities. I found the place a wonderful, cosy, home away from home. Really enjoyed the views during the day & night & strangely found that it reminded me sometimes of my visits to the Carribean island of Saint Lucia, although this was also in part down to the warm weather experienced doing my stay. Property easy to find, local shops & restaurants nearby (Park Burger was very nice indeed!!!) quite good & overall I would most certainly stay here again & recommend it to others. Met the hosts & while I didn't see them that often, they were very friendly & keen to ensure that both me & my partner enjoyed our stay. I noted some comments in other reviews about the hosts not greeting guests or introducing themselves. This wouldn't of been a problem for me as I think as the property has its own entrance if the hosts are busy or away you wouldn't see them. No concerns or issues although I would advise that the bathroom inner shower curtain (White one) be replaced. Please note: If you are expecting a large apartment some may find this a bit small. Personally I quite liked it. Also recommend you hire a car if staying here as it makes it easier to get about. Thanks Marianne for having
