ROCKRIDGE TEMESCAL 2BR FLAT - PRIVATE, LIGHT, ARTSY

Berkeley Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Charming Convenient 2 Bedroom Upper Flat, Walk To Oakland's Rockridge Bart

This 1907 upper flat in a duplex has beautiful period touches, is decorated with a mix of furnishings like an orange Design Within Reach sofa and ethnic crafts, and feels cheery with light from dawn to dusk. This quiet residential neighborhood is surprisingly close to every amenity you could want -- located equally close to Temescal and Rockridge. You'll find yourself in a delightful quandary about where to eat and whether to drive to SF or hop on BART. Great location for Bay Area vacations and UC Berkeley visitors too!

I've gotten more than 30 great reviews on Airbnb with raves about the central location and comfort of the place itself.

* Built in 1907, offering lots of charm

* 2 bedrooms, 1 bath with sheets and towels provided.

One bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed; the other has an American Leather queen sized sofabed people love. Floor mats for kids available.

* Living room, dining room - very comfortable for writers, developers, folks working on projects

* Fully equipped kitchen with gas stove

* WIFI

* Carpeted

* Access to shared laundry room (for stays 2 weeks)

* Free street parking (no permits needed). Possibility of using the driveway.

If you have friends in the area and you aren't in the area it could be possible to show it to them.

I'm a long time Bay Area resident with deep ties into Berkeley, arts and craft scenes, artisan / craft food makers and restaurants, and a lot of knowledge of Internet startups and destinations all over the bay area. Open minded, I love to live the good simple life and enjoy the spirit of travelers who love connecting with new folks. I've traveled to lots of countries and have friends around the world. My work involves Internet marketing, self-help and business writing, optimal living coaching and creating awesome entrepreneurial projects to make the world a happy place.

Making sure guests enjoy their stay to the fullest through clear communication and expectations is super important, and I've had some wonderful experiences meeting people from all over the world.

I love the Bay Area, Oakland and Rockridge and hope my guests love it as well.

Location location, on a street lined with Craftsman bungalow homes. This private flat is decorated with arts and crafts to stir creativity yet with the comforts of home. The upper floor offers lots of light, from dawn to dusk, and when you wake up you see only sky from the bedroom window - lots of privacy.

You can walk between Oakland's two hot neighborhoods, Rockridge and Temescal, with easy access to Berkeley and SF, and revel on Sunday mornings at a fantastic farmers market.

It's especially great for people considering moving to the East Bay wanting to get a feel for the area or as a visiting professor / remote worker (or nomad !) or if you're remodeling their home in Oakland and needa temporary home.

This flat has really great energy and most people who stay there want to come back. Built in 1907, it has good bones and a nice layout where you can be together with whoever else you're staying with or separate to do your own thing.

Your food and adventure concierge and local expert lives below, ready to make sure you have a great stay and will enjoy the Bay Area to the fullest (or leave you alone if that's what you prefer)

Located in foodie central, an easy walk to Temescal restaurants and farmers market, walk to Rockridge shopping and BART, lovely drive, walk or bike to Berkeley and campus and the Grand Lake / Lake Merritt area. The flat is a 5 minute walk to the CCA college and a great central location when exploring the bay area and beyond.

Lots of folks have loved staying here when visiting friends and family or wanting a quiet place to focus on writing or sabbatical projects.
