BEAUTIFUL, SECLUDED ONE BEDROOM COTTAGE IN ROCKRIDGE/BERKELEY

Oakland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

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.

BEAUTIFUL, IMMACULATE, PEACEFUL, ACCOMMODATING COTTAGE IN A GREAT LOCATION!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were visiting the Oakland/Bay area for a wedding and we stayed in this Rockridge/Berkeley cottage. We could not be more happy that we stayed there for our week in California. The cottage is even more beautiful than the pictures. The cottage is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. It is in walking distance to Bart and so many shops, restaurants and even a Trader Joe's. The owners made everything very easy. If we are in the area again, we will definitely stay there again.
Thank you for our wonderful week at the cottage!!!!

VISITORS FROM EAST COAST

  • 5 of 5
We visited family in the East Bay, and stayed in Rockridge Cottage for eight days.

The cottage is immaculate, modern, comfortable, complete. The private garden is beautiful and serene. The owners, who live next door, were welcoming and responsive to our needs, but respected our privacy.

The location is convenient for us.. shopping, restaurants, Rockridge BART, the Berkeley campus, all are walkable, and Cole's Coffee is beyond compare!

We hope to return often.

  • 5 of 5
I was in town for my son's wedding. First time in the area and prefer staying in a home setting when traveling for a week or more. I can not say enough about Rockridge Cottage and it's owners.

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location?
YES! A great location. With in walking distance to shops and BART. I did not end up needing a car.

YES! and then some. Everything I could imagine needing was at my fingertips!

Was the property clean and well-maintained?
YES! Spotless and easy for me to keep up with, allowing me time to enjoy family and friends.

LOVED THIS COTTAGE!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful weeks in Rockridge Cottage in April and it was one of the most wonderful experiences we have had in any VRBO. We arrived to find a completely immaculate, quiet, and comfortable property that exceeded our expectations and was much lovelier than the photographs implied. The location is outstanding and is in an area we would love to live, with great shops, restaurants, and amenities just a block or two away. The gardens and yard were full of blooming roses,lemon trees, and irises and the deck outside was where we spent many hours reading and soaking up sunshine. The kitchen was very well equipped, there was plenty of closet space, the bed was very comfortable, and it was a very airy and light filled place.
The owners were very friendly and helpful and were available if we wanted to ask anything. Along with a welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates,they offered a very gracious hospitality to us. As far as nearby activities, what wouldn't you love from Peet's Coffee, La Farine Bakery, a wonderful butcher and seafood shop and scores of great restaurants all within a 5 minute walk. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

COUPLE VISITING GRANDCHILDREN

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved staying at Rockridge Cottage for a week in December 2013. The cottage was beautifully appointed, tidy, secluded and quiet, modern kitchenette will all conveniences. A five minute walk to College Ave. shops, and a ten minute walk to Rockridge BART. Owner friendly, helpful, and available. We plan to stay here on our next visit.

JUST WHAT WE HOPED FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We (husband and I) have just signed up for our third stay and wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the Oakland/Berkeley area. Both of us know Berkeley pretty well, having been connected with the University many years ago, but Rockridge was new to us and we can't say enough for this charming area or for Rockridge Cottage and its owners. After our first experience with the cottage, chosen mainly because of its proximity to family (grandchildren minutes away) and friends, we knew it was the place for us. We found that the online listing description and photos were absolutely accurate, and that the cottage was even more attractive, comfortable, and efficient than we imagined. We take great pleasure in the simple things of life and it was lovely to walk up to College Ave. in the mornings for freshly baked breakfast muffins, pick up some fruit and yogurt at a delightful little market and return to "our place" to brew coffee and dine inside or out. If we'd wanted to spend more time in San Francisco it would have been a snap, given the superb public transportation BART offers, but we lingered in and around the Rockridge area and found everything we wanted very accessible, even without a rental car (though we'll probably have a rental next time). In sum: Rockridge Cottage offers very friendly and helpful owners, an impeccably maintained and attractive environment in a charming neighborhood, and privacy yet proximity to shops, restaurants, activities, etc. What more could anyone want?
