Great Location, But Not Pampering

  • 2 of 5

This sunny house is in a fabulous location for a family stay. Only a short walk through the beautiful neighborhood to the BART and Rockridge Center, full of unique, charming shops and great food. The Rockridge Marketplace is perfect for grabbing coffee and delicious pastries, wine, cheese, and specialty items. The Rockridge Cafe is also great for hearty breakfast. On Sundays, there is a terrific farmer's market just down the street. The house is very clean and our host kindly left cookies for our arrival. However, the bedrooms are very sparsely furnished--no dressers, but flimsy hanging cubbies in the closet, and in the second bedroom, there wasn't even a night table. The bathroom is older, so not a lot of room. The kitchen feels like it needs some updating, i.e. a Keurig coffee maker would be more welcoming than an unwashed Mr. Coffee carafe. For convenience and space, this house is a good choice. There's a graduate housing feel to it, which I wouldn't mind if I wasn't looking for a bit more pampering on my vacation.

Summer Stay

  • 3 of 5

The was mostly nice, on a busy street and if your not a walker it's not super close to the downtown Rockridge-we had an elderly person with us. The walls had some spots that were painted and one of the pictures wasn't securely posted on the wall and fell. The backyard sitting area was great! More kitchen chairs woul have been great. Overall it was a good stay for the price considering how expensive staying in the Bay Area is.

Owner's Response: Hi Teresa, It is about 4-5 blocks to Rockridge BART and Market Hall. sorry the picture fell if you had let me know I would have come over to fix it. there are 4 chairs in the kitchen and 4 in the dining room, yes the sitting area off the kitchen is pleasant with Bouganvillea and a large Walnut tree as background!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for my middle childs graduation. It was great to have a kitchen and the room to host his friends for an after graduation get together. I also loved the fact that it's walking distance to the BART which we took to spend all day Sunday at San Francisco. We also enjoyed the farmers market, my kids (3), me and my husband loved it. And you cannot leave without trying the Burma restaurant, great food, great service, walking distance. Judy is great to work with, we arrived a few hours early and she was very gracious about it, and brought us delicious cookies.

Love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the Bungalow...both time for a recovery from surgery. I love everything about this place...it's sunny, roomy, comfy, fun and in a great location! I always feel safe here, and the house is close to sooo many great things within walking distance (food, shopping, cool neighborhood). The upper bedroom is like salve to a cut with it's sunshine, comfy bed and coziness. The kitchen is large and well stocked, the back deck a delight to sit on! The house is always clean and uncluttered. Just enough of everything. Judy is an absolute delight to work with and to get to know. We also spent one night at another of her rentals (the studio) which was also wonderful. You won't be disappointed in the Bungalow....I like to think of it as my California home!

just okay

  • 3 of 5

The house was clean, with plenty of space and well lit rooms. The convenience to the business district of Temescal and to the Bart made it ideal for us, and we were within 5 minutes of our daughter.

However, I did expect more in comfort and feng shui for what I was paying per week. Some windows were drafty, not air-tight, resulting in sounds from street being louder. I put a pillow against the gap at night to block the cool night air.

The window treatments could have been more welcoming, and the leather couches have long seen their day. Two burners on the stove did not light without matches, and a chair on the deck was falling apart.

As I already stated, I have higher expectations for the price.

Owner's Response: yes many guests really appreciate how close the home is to College Ave, BART and Frog Park, a really great park for young children. We have checked the stove and found the pilot light out and re lit it. Some guests really appreciate the Wedgewood Stove. We have repaired the chair on the deck, thank you for letting us know about it!

Charming, Comfortable Accommodations in Good Location

  • 5 of 5

We went to Oakland with my sister and brother-in-law for an early Christmas with our daughter and boyfriend. This was a perfect alternative to a hotel, and so well priced. The house is charming, comfortable, and cheerful, easy walking distance to College Avenue restaurants and shops. Easy location right off highway. When we first drove up and saw that it was on a busy corner, we were worried it would be noisy, but nighttime was very quiet - no problem at all. Having a garage was also a huge perk, and we never had a problem parking the second vehicle right in front or on the side of the house. The weather wasn't warm enough to sit out on the cute deck for morning coffee, but we will definitely return in the future to try it out.
