Homey Rockridge apt
Very convenient location and easy walk to Rockridge Bart and stores. Quiet and safe neighborhood. Wonderful area to stay if you want to be in Oakland.
The apartment is as depicted in the pictures. The owner is very accessible and helpful with the stay.
It was exactly as Susie described. The kitchen was well stocked, the bed comfortable, the place was quiet. The whole experience staying there was great!
You were wonderful guests, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you.
Great Oakland stay
This place was perfect for out stay. Close to our daughter's place, close to all types of restaurants, close to the BART. Best stocked pantry we've ever come across. Susie was generous and wanted to make sure we were comfortable and had any kind of info we needed. We will definitely return.
The pleasure was all mine! You were perfect guests. I look forward to your return. :)
Perfect place and host
Susie’s great apartment was a perfect base for our week of exploring Oakland. It was clean, comfortable, well stocked, and situated in a lovely neighborhood. We would absolutely stay here again. Thanks again Susie!
Thank you, perfect guests! :)
The place was very cosy and homey. Susie has pretty much everything we needed for our stay
We had a wonderful time. Thank you very much Susie for your hospitality and detailed guide/info about the local areas and transportation, much appreciated especially for first timers.

Why Susie chose Shafter
Location location, on a street lined with Craftsman bungalow homes. This private flat is decorated with arts and crafts to stir creativity yet with the comforts of home. The upper floor offers lots of light, from dawn to dusk, and when you wake up you see only sky from the bedroom window - lots of privacy. You can walk between Oakland's two hot neighborhoods, Rockridge and Temescal, with easy access to Berkeley and SF, and revel on Sunday mornings at a fantastic farmers market. It's especially great for people considering moving to the East Bay wanting to get a feel for the area or as a visiting professor / remote worker (or nomad !) or if you're remodeling their home in Oakland and need a temporary home.
What makes this House unique
This flat has really great energy and most people who stay there want to come back. Built in 1907, it has good bones and a nice layout where you can hang out with your travel buddies or retreat to your own area of the flat. Your food and adventure concierge and local expert lives below, available with tips for enjoying the Bay Area to the fullest, if you like.
