The Rockridge Bungalow is the lower unit of a classic California Bungalow Duplex in the heart of Rockridge. It is a spacious 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment that is sunny, bright and cozy and fully outfitted with style - including a flat screen TV, DVD player, mini JAMBOX for music and free Wi-Fi.
With over 700 square feet including a spacious yet cozy bedroom, separate living room and sunny eat-in kitchen plus a beautiful private deck with a dining table and fully-fenced yard - this space is truly a home-away-from-home yet steps away from the action. For families traveling with a small child, we can provide a portable crib and highchair and there is a small sandbox in the yard.

Hi, I'm Michelle, owner of the Rockridge Bungalow and I look forward to hosting you. Oakland is a great vacation destination with numerous offerings. Only 20 minutes from SF but with much better weather, not to mention a much better value. I personally love the vibrant restaurant scene and enjoy sharing my culinary adventures on my blogs.

The super convenient Rockridge location cannot be beat!
Short walk to College Ave & BART, a weekly farmers market, and Market Hall gourmet market. 1 block from CCA, 3 miles from UC Berkeley, near several parks, quick access to freeway and 20 minutes to San Francisco.
Comfortable and close to the Rockridge BART station. The unit is at the back of the property with a lovely deck and yard.
Owner was great. Provided lots of suggestions for places to eat and visit in the area.
If you are visiting the area as a tourist, the place is really well outfitted. If you are a business traveler looking to work in the unit, there is no desk although the kitchen table works in a pinch.
Comfortable, clean, well appointed. Wonderfully located for shops, restaurants, and public transportation to San Francisco and other points of interest. Has a great view of Mt. Tam at sunset.
Stayed for approx. 2 months. Sixth time we've stayed here in last 5 yrs. Close to restaurants, Safeway, shops and BART. Cozy and lots of storage space. Owner very responsive and friendly to deal with. New upstairs tenants are very quiet. Most of the time we could hardly tell they were there. Deck is a nice place to picnic or just enjoy a glass of wine. We'll stay here again in the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed this little house! The back patio was very quiet and relaxing. The bedroom was huge and comfy, bathroom was nice, and the kitchen was well stocked with provisions and necessities. Michelle was great to work with. Parking was a bit of an issue...but we made it work. overall I would definately recommend this rental.
Clean, roomy apartment with sunny full kitchen, living room, and lovely backyard. I was surprised at how spacious the unit was. Very close to all the Rockridge neighborhood has to offer. On a fairly busy street, but the unit is way in the back, down a sloping driveway away from the street. The owner checked in with me and answered my questions promptly.
Nice, fairly clean unit. Parking was easy to find, owner was responsive... had everything we needed. Nice that bath supplies were included and we had access to washer and dryer. Kitchen has a fridge, gas 4-unit range, and a microwave which you don't see in pics.the back yard was also lovely and enough room for my kids to run around. The 2 inflatable mattresses were brand new and worked perfectly!
