ITALIAN GARDEN FLAT WITH GRAND PIANO (SLEEPS 2)

Oakland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

~ Maximum occupancy = 2

~ Minimum 7-night stay

~ Ask about last minute stays with a 4-night minimum at $165/night plus cleaning fee.

Read the reviews, then book an unforgettable week in our newly-constructed custom suite in Upper Rockridge with private entrance and soothing views of the San Francisco Bay. You’ll want to sip morning coffee on your brick terrace overlooking the multi-level Italianate gardens with fountain, paths and bougainvillea-laden trellis. Ideal for 1-2 persons (no exceptions) — one bedroom with down-covered four-poster bed, walk-in closet, and granite and natural stone bath, living room with Yamaha C3 piano, full kitchen and two sets of french doors that open to the terrace, garden, and views beyond.

The Italian Garden Flat sits in the Oakland hills on a quiet residential street, a prime location for business or vacation trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. No car? It’s only a 5 minute walk to the AC transit stop w/ direct service to San Francisco or to Rockridge BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit), 10 minutes walk down the hill to a chic coffee shop and gift store, nursery, and gourmet market, or one mile further to Rockridge, the East Bay’s favorite area for trendy cafes, unique bookstores, yoga studios, chocolate shops, and international eateries for take out or sit down meals. Between the bus service and BART, public transportation will take you to all bay area locations.

Runners and walkers will love the neighborhood hills with winding streets and homes of distinct architecture. Lake Temescal with its private beach and walking trails is a few minutes down the road, a favorite walking and picnic spot for locals.

The flat is very close to Highways 24 and 13, making it a 10-minute drive to Berkeley or quick half hour or less to San Francisco. We are strategically located between Piedmont, Montclair Village, Temescal (don’t miss Sunday morning farmer’s market!) and Rockridge. Nearby universities include UC Berkeley, California College of the Arts, Mills College, Holy Names University, and many others. Maps, hiking, shopping, and other books and pamphlets are available in the flat for you to use. The Oakland hills are full of amazing hiking and biking trails maintained by our East Bay parks system, many of them no more than a 15-minute drive. Jack London Square is accessible by bus or BART and from there you might want to take the ferry across the bay to San Francisco!

There are endless choices of restaurants within a 15-minute drive, but you’ll also find the full kitchen set up with stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator. We’ve stocked some basics for you, along with coffee and tea to you started your first morning. Of course, we also provide towels, linens, WiFi, and television with satellite service.

Features:

~ San Francisco bay and garden views

~ Upgraded construction with granite, tile, and natural stone

Well-appointed apartment that is just as beautiful as photos depict. My husband and I were thrilled with the accommodations, which included extras we didn't expect. The view from the terrace was amazing and the gardens exquisite. The owners were very welcoming. We had an excellent stay and highly recommend this property.

Perfect!!! Beautiful location with a view of the bay. Lori and Craig were very welcoming and everything was well thought out and immaculate. Nice privacy, quiet and easy on-street parking. The bedroom and living room open up to a patio overlooking the gardens. We'll definitely be back next time we visit.

WONDERFUL!!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Lori and Craig's lovely flat. I just returned from my second stay and for both visits I stayed for a month while in the Bay Area for work. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else! The flat is beautifully furnished and the back terrace and gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Gorgeous views from the french doors, both in the living room and bedroom. The flat is very quiet and cozy and has every thing you need. Lori is such a gracious host - always has a bottle of wine and cheese plate awaiting new guests on check in and is always available while respecting your privacy at the same time.

Perfect for a solo traveler or a couple. You do have to go up and down quite a few steps to access the flat so may be difficult if mobile impaired. Parking on the street across from the house was never a problem (and you will want a car if staying here although there are some bus stops within walking distance).

Because I was there for work and staying for quite awhile, it was so important to feel like I was at home. And I have always felt that way when staying at Lori and Craig's flat (although my actual home is not as nice!!) Always sad to leave.

Thank you Lori!!!

Fabulous rental in Upper Rockridge

My only regret is that I have to give this rental a 5* rating because it will than become more popular and harder for us to book it again because we DEFINITELY WILL!!!! This is everything we look for in a rental - clean, uncluttered, comfortable bed, bathroom with space to put your toiletries, workable kitchen and great location with a fantastic view. Upon arrival, Lori explained everything to us and treated us to wine , cheese and crackers. If we needed anything, she said to please ask. Craig asked if we needed help carrying bags. They are both very accomadating. One night there was a storm and first thing in the morning we got an email if everything was OK and did we need anything. The yard is absolutely beautiful. It is even nicer in person than the pictures. We definitely recommend this rental. It is also very convenient to getting to College Ave and BART. The Village Market is a short drive and has everything you need. Next to the market is the Terrace Coffee Shop. Don't miss an opportunity to stay here, you won't regret it. Thank you Lori & Craig.

My husband and I stayed in this fabulous flat for the past five weeks. I started reading the reviews today before writing our own review and honestly I agree with all that I read and more. This has truly been a beautiful, restful, enjoyable experience. We thank the owners, Lori and Craig, for their hospitality, thoughtfulness and willingness to assist us in any way they can. We both look forward to coming back again.
