Rockridge Cottage is located very close to the trendy shops and restaurants that line the College Avenue Rockridge district and Berkeley’s Elmwood district. The U.C. Berkeley campus is less than a mile away and the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) is a 10 minute walk and from there a quick 20 minutes into downtown San Francisco. Walk one-block to College Avenue and you will find dozens of excellent restaurants, a host of cafes, supermarkets, a movie theater and shops to meet most every need.
The cottage is behind the main house and has its own deck surrounded by a secluded back yard. In sunny weather, the roomy deck is great for dining, reading and hanging out. There is a brick patio on the side of the cottage with a gas barbecue. The spacious 600 sq. foot, one bedroom cottage was recently remodeled from floor to ceiling and is fashionably furnished. It has oak floors and attractive, dark mahogany built -in cabinetry. It has a compact kitchen area with refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven and two-burner stovetop. There is internet access and cable TV. Additional pictures are posted at the URL listed below on this web-site.
Not much more to add to the other terrific reviews. The pictures are accurate, the cottage is immaculate, it is located at the back of the owner's home, but is very private with a great deck. Murray the owner was helpful, and friendly and available if you needed any help. It is about a ten minute walk to BART, and walking there you go through the wonderful neighborhood, which has a number of restaurants, coffee shops, and small shops. Even a Safeway is in walking distance to the cottage. Very close to Berkeley. Would absolutely stay again when back in the area.
A delightful cottage: everything is special. We sat on our own deck and admired the private garden with its lemon tree and flowers, shaded by an umbrella. The little kitchen was beautifully equipped and well stocked. All clean and well maintained. Very comfy queen bed. Fresh throughout.
A thoughtful host: there is nothing the owners haven't thought of to make your stay comfortable, easy and pleasant.
A perfect location: a block from the bus straight to the Cal campus. An easy walk to BART, with direct transit to SF. Markets, bars and wonderful restaurants just around the corner. You really don't need a car although it's easy to park if you have one.
Not only will I stay here when I return, I'll return just to stay here!
Our daughter-in-law arranged for our stay at this lovely cottage and it was absolutely perfect. The architect thought of everything you might need with regard to space and the owners finished with everything you might need to feel at home. The property was immaculate when we arrived and I was completely at ease immediately.
There is lots of privacy and a lovely backyard to enjoy the "real joy" of California. I would recommend this property for everyone!
All of the descriptions, previous reviews, and photos are spot on...this is a great place to rent!
We arrived tired very late at night, but were perked up by the beautiful space, the pristine condition of the cottage, and the welcoming bottle of wine and Toblerone!
The privacy of the garden patio where we enjoyed our morning coffee was wondrous. We were joined daily by hummingbirds.
Mr. Silverman chatted with us on our first morning, made himself available if we needed anything, but respected our privacy completely.
The cottage had everything we needed including consumables such as ample bathroom supplies. A parking pass for the street was also provided.
The bedroom is good sized and very comfortable and the kitchen is perfect for a couple or for small gatherings.
All in all, this was the perfect rental in a perfect location for visiting our Berkeley based children and for exploring the Bay Area.

Rockridge Cottage was everything we'd hoped for -- the perfect place! The cottage is attached to a beautiful home in a quiet residential neighborhood right on the Berkeley/Oakland border, just a block and a half from a great bakery, an artisanal coffee shop, a butcher, a florist and multiple cafes. It is a 20 minute, easy walk to the UC Berkeley campus. Attached to the cottage is a deck overlooking a beautiful garden, and the cottage itself is full of light. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed, very quiet, and just lovely. Murray was a terrific host, and we had everything we needed, and more. We really hated to leave, and in fact are already planning our return!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rockridge Cottage. It was clean, quiet, modern and tastefully decorated. The owners are very congenial and responsive. We had our own private deck and yard and access to goodies from the garden. There are excellent dining opportunities within walking distance, as well as shopping and a movie theater. We had a nice stay while visiting our son at UC and would definitely go back.
