Overview

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.

A stellar gem in Rockridge

  • 5 of 5

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.

Thanks Murray!

A total gem

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great base for visit to Bay Area

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was truly wonderful! We were in Oakland, CA to visit family, and this was the perfect place to stay. Located in a great neighborhood, it was close to restaurants and shops. Murray was so friendly and welcoming, and the cottage reflects all of that. We would highly recommend staying at Rockridge Cottage and look forward to a return visit the next time we are in Oakland!

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.
