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.
Rockridge is a hip and vibrant neighborhood and home to College Avenue - a bustling shopping district with numerous shops, cafes and highly rated restaurants such as A`Cote, A16, Wood Tavern & Soi 4.
Other Rockridge attractions include; Market Hall - a world class gourmet market, Rockridge Library, Frog Park, Temescal Farmers Market and a nice selection of trendy shops. You are also minutes away from two other shopping/dining destinations - Piedmont Avenue and Temescal - home of the infamous Bakesale Betty.
Other East Bay features include; beautiful hill and bay views, miles and miles of hiking and biking trails, Jack London Square and easy access to the gorgeous bay and waterways for sailing, windsurfing or a sunset ferry ride to San Francisco.

California College of Arts is 1 block away and the BART station is only 5 blocks away which is a very quick and convenient way to visit San Francisco. For guests with mobility issues please note, the driveway is fairly steep and there are 6 steps to the entrance.

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.
This property was close to college ave and all it has to offer. It worked beautifully visiting family in Oakland and walking to Bart to visit San Francisco without a car. PArking was found nearby on street. To reach the apt was down a very steep driveway. Could be difficult for some (my husband included). Young child heard running overhead early in am and after 5 pm. Air bed didn't hold air :0( Nicely stocked apt and we appreciated cookies left by owner. Had an issue with Internet the first day which Michelle promptly took care of. Would visit again!
This is a beautifully appointed, roomy apartment and very well located in the Rockridge neighborhood. We walked to restaurants and shops. Parking was very easy to find on the street nearby. Michelle was very helpful and available for all questions and requests. I would highly recommend this place and hope to return in the near future.
The bungalow had everything you need for a trip away. Very clean and comfortable. WiFi was fast. We didn't cook there but it had all the facilities. Michelle was so informative and helpful. I would definitely recommend this accommodation. Rockridge is a great area. Lots of quirky shops and restaurants. There was a lovely place for breakfast right around the corner which we went to every morning. The BART station was about 15 minutes walk away and perfect for commuting to San Francisco.
We loved our stay at Rockridge Bungalow- couldn't have been better. Quiet location, but walking distance to great amenities and social streets on College and Piedmont- quick drive to downtown Oakland, the ridgetop, and Berkeley, or easy BART access to SF. Loved the back porch, lots of light and windows. Parking never a problem. Michelle was quick to respond to anything we needed, which wasn't much! Would definitely re-book and recommend to others!
House is in a good location. Neat. All you need for a short stay is there. Owner very helpful. Street Parking & very difficult. Had to wake up early after a late night out because I parked in the driveway. However, the experience is overall good.
The bungalow was as presented on the website and in a great location but we found the noise from the kids feet on the floorboards upstairs to be intrusive at times. Parking is also an issue in that area.
