Airy and light filled home in the heart of Rockridge, on the Berkeley/Oakland border. Perfect location for a family vacation. We are a family of three who love to travel and are happy to provide recommendations about the best local activities.

Our house is kid friendly and is stocked with family games (monopoly, Clue, Apples to Apples Jr, etc). The living room has no TV, but converts to a home theater with a 9' pull down screen. We have Netflix, XBox, and a small video library.

The kitchen has a Viking stove, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender, and most typical cooking items. The kitchen opens onto the dining room and there is a comfy bar top between the two rooms.

The backyard is pretty, peaceful, and has a hot tub that is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a crisp evening.

The house has three bedrooms and sleeps 6 comfortably. Master bedroom with a queen bed, kids room with loft twin bed (+ optional extra twin bed), and office with a twin or full bed.

Perfect location in Rockridge

Our family of 4 had a great stay!

Right when we walked in, it was evident we had found a great house. Our children loved the "kids room"...a room filled with books, a closet of arts and crafts supplies, and an awesome loft bed that felt like a pre-built secret fort. There was a little basket of snacks in the kitchen, and coffee ready for the making. All the linens were clean and nice, a basket of towels for the hot tub by the back door. Speaking of, we loved the hot tub and the lack of a traditional TV in the house. We played a lot of games during down time, and enjoyed the giant screen and projector for a movie night one night.

The neighborhood is so walkable, even with a 5 year old and a 7 year old, down to Market Hall, Ramen Shop, a Trader Joes, coffee shops, bakeries, etc. etc. etc. We went up into the neighborhood one morning and checked out all the fancy houses and explored. We grabbed BART into the city just 3 or so blocks down from the house. There is a cute neighbor cat to say HI to and a nice quiet feel to the street the house is on.

Thanks!!

Happy House, happy memories!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely family home to rent! We really cannot rate it more . This house is on a very pleasant street where the neighbours say hello & everyone is very friendly.

It's about a five minute walk to the Bart & all the lovely shops on College. There is a big Safeway opened that is within walking distance & lots of coffee shops & restaurants.

The house itself is lovely, 3 bedrooms (two with double beds), fabulous kitchen with everything you could need, washing machine & dryer in the garage.

The living / dining room are open plan with a huge pull down cinema screen.

We stayed with our two daughtes (13 & 11) who both felt safe & comfortable ( which is one of the most important things on a holiday). There is also a rather fabulous hot tub in the garden. We used this when getting home from a long day of sight seeing.

There is space on the front garden to park a large SUV, there is also parking on the road for visitors.

I cannot recommend this place enough, as I said in my title - Happy House, Happy Memories!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here.... Easy to get into San Francisco-but we spent a lot of time walking the neighborhood and the Cal-Berkeley area. There are several restaurants very close by. The house was a delight!

Beyond Impressed!!

  • 5 of 5

1. Jason (the owner) was lightening fast with getting back to me & keeping me informed with everything.

2. The house is AWESOME! It's located in the beautiful hills of Oakland in a neighborhood made up of darling cottage-like homes. The owners have done a great job decorating, updating & maintaining their home.

3. So close to what we needed! Minutes from the BART station (we would've walked if it was warmer), Trader Joe's & restaurants.

4. LOVED how the owners welcomed us! They surprised my family with a box of chocolates (THANK YOU, Jason!!), bowls of apples & oranges, a snack box, chocolates on our pillows & a binder full of all the info. we could ask for (where to find household things, how to work household appliances, restaurant recommendations...). We felt totally spoiled!! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Gorgeous home in a beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with our stay. The owners provided for our every need & desire while we were staying in their home. The house was beautifully decorated in a very elegant & personal, yet minimalist style. It inspired us to purge & redecorate our own home to recreate the serene feeling we had while staying at this property. Our two elementary school aged children enjoyed the childrens' room and we all loved relaxing in the hot tub and watching movies on the theater screen together. Also, we only rented a car for part of our visit, but the BART station (Public transportation system) was only a pleasant 10 minute walk from the house, as was a Trader Joe's and a bevy of shops and restaurants on College Avenue. This is a superior property that I would love to stay in again.

Perfect Location in an Incredible House

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing house! From the tall ceilings that gave it an amazing since of space to the home theater (wonderful way to watch the premier of the new season of Orange is the New Black) to the kitchen with the tall windows that opened up to the outside giving a very Tuscan feel. The beds where very comfortable (Well the master bedrooms was) The kids room was perfect for our little ones with lots of things to keep them entertained. And the hot tub was amazing once we put them to sleep! :) Couldn't have made a better choice to add to the weekend wedding celebration we where in town for. Would highly highly recommend!
