Lovely residential location. Lounge by the pool or cuddle up by the electric fireplace. Surrounded by trees, birds singing, lovely views of the hills, you will feel at ease. Open the doors - it's an outdoor living/bedroom. SPECIAL only Outdoor Tiki Shower, very private/hot water. Parking on the street, well lit pathway/stairs to cabana. Not wheelchair accessible. Please respect the neighborhood, behave responsibly. Active security. NO PARTIES. Eco grey water, lite cooking, no oils please.
A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE WHETHER IT'S RAIN, SUN or CLOUDS!! You can have the cabana wide open or closed, listen to Pandora or catch something on Netflix. Ideal for writing, preparing for meetings (wifi), walking the hills, day trips to wine tasting, the ocean, SF, Point Reyes, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Sacramento Train Museum, Muir Woods, Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay. There are great restaurants, shopping, entertainment, too. The shower is outdoors only, just a few steps from the bathroom. A car is recommended.
This a fabulous quiet residential neighborhood. There are loads of restaurants close by, a Safeway, RiteAid, CVS, gas, and more. Walnut Creek, Emeryville, Oakland and Berkeley offer live entertainment every night and great shopping. You don't have to go over the bridge. The local breakfast hangout is The Village Cafe or Geppetto's. My favorite is Petra - mediterannean fare next to our beautiful historical Art Deco movie theatre. For a great walk go to the Lafayette Reservoir - 3 mile paved walk and beautiful scenery & boating. Or walk the neighborhood here. To be very honest, I expect my guests to keep my property very clean, to empty the garbage, recycling, do the dishes and keep it tidy.
  • Pam was such a great host , the place is amazing ! it’s very clean and it is a lot of good vibes over there !!

    Chardanae2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Pam’s place is lovely, quiet, and private. We would definitely love to return one day!

    Katrine2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place is exactly as described. Thanks for everything!

    Scott2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Pam's place was beautiful! Really comfortable and EVERY amenity was considered. She's a wonderful hostess.

    Pamela2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Pam’s cabana is a perfect, peaceful poolside retreat and the daytime is often warm during the winter for those who wish to swim in her delightful pool. Pam is an attentive, helpful and yet unobtrusive host. This was our second visit to the cabana and we shall definitely return later this year.

    Maddie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described. The tiki shower is an experience and feels like it is solely yours. Went in the winter and was never chilly except in the kitchen. However with the light cooking (breakfast) we did made us enjoy that open atmosphere. It truly brought out the best in our relationship having a quick breakfast on the outdoor tables. Pam; thanks for putting together such a wonderful enclave. Lots of birds and surrounded by greenery. We loved it!!!

    Zal Eric2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • very comfortable and convenient to transportation in the area . very coozy living area and also small but very useful kitchen area with a refrigerator , microwave and toaster and coffee maker . Very nice pool area and comfortable outside area but also private area.

    Kenneth2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Pam's cabana was so lovely and she was very accommodating in accepting my last-minute reservation for a weekend getaway. The room and seating area is comfortable, she left several nice touches (snacks, login for all of her streaming services, local guides, bathrobe, etc.), and overall was so friendly and welcoming. This spot is a great little getaway that feels secluded in nature, but is just a 5-10 minute drive to restaurants/stores. I would definitely return - thanks Pam!

    2nd best stay in the bay! The former home of a music legend, this mountainside villa is the ideal place to get away from it all; close to Downtown Oakland, just across the bridge from San Francisco. Quiet, beautiful, modular space and surroundings fit for 70s era royalty, with some modern touches. If you are interested in recording packages, please inquire through our other listing, "Historic Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp". Otherwise, stay on the line and we'll get right back to you.
    The unit is extremely versatile and can transform from a full service music and film studio to an extremely comfortable hillside getaway with some of the greatest amenities. Just to be clear, this is a recording studio (both in the past and presently, however, this listing DOES NOT include "formal studio time, such as full rehearsals and/or recording packages). The live room can be used for meetings or as a large size bedroom/living room combo and the spacious deck can be used to lounge, throw darts or enjoy spectacular dining with view. -The property is secured with multiple cameras around the exterior. If you are a registered guest, these measures have been taken for both your safety and privacy. This unit will fit just about any need, let us know how can we transform the space to fit your needs. Going, going, gone.
    This neighborhood is one of the most scenic and quietly reserved the bay area has to offer. Sweeping views of the valley and gorgeous surroundings combine to make this stay magical. Whether it be the wild turkeys squawking about, dear battling the steep terrain, or endless bird watching, this studio retreat is one of a kind. It doesn't get much better than this.
  • Joe and his family were great and super hospitable. We had everything we needed. The small kitchen is fully stocked with everything you would need for your stay. The Montclair hills are beautiful. You should stop off at their restaurant down the hill, Taps and Takeout. Cheers!

    Farschad2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great, unique space! Very comfortable. So happy with my choice to stay here while visiting the Bay Area!

    Aimee2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Really unique and a cozy, calm place to spend some time at. I'd highly recommend it!

    Vinit2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This space is lovely. Studio and living space? A musician’s dream!

    Marlon2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time, was nice and a the place has a beautiful view :) thanks again 🙂

    Lina2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • What an incredible space I’m so glad we got to stay there we will definitely be back

    Vanessa2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Joe is the best! This is an unique space that would be a great retreat for a musician or other artist working on a project.

    Charles2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Okay seriously this was the best place we’ve stayed at ever. The views were amazing, the space was SO SPACIOUS! We didn’t even know what to do with that much space. There was a balcony that you can sit on for hours and just enjoy the view. I could sit and wrack my brain for hours to think of something negative and there just wouldn’t be anything. If you’re going to the Bay Area you NEED to stay here. Also go to Joe’s restaurant and tap house, we went on taco Tuesday and ate so much we could’ve hibernated for the rest of the time. Thank you Joe!

    A 450 sqft charming studio with all the amenities you need to make your stay comfortable. Close to many locations ( restaurants and stores within a mile, BART a mile away), yet secluded enough in a suburban setting surrounded by Oak trees and our backyard creek. We pride ourselves in keeping the studio pristine. Our host reviews attest to that :-) We live in the main house adjacent to the studio and welcome any chance to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
    Fully equipped kitchen with convection oven, microwave and induction cooktop. Bathroom with radiant floor heating. 50" UHD TV. High Speed Wifi.
    With a population just shy of 20000, Orinda was ranked the second most friendly town in America by Forbes. The city is located a few miles east of the city of Berkeley and is home to many affluent suburban professionals who commute to larger cities in the Bay Area such as Oakland, San Francisco, and Walnut Creek. Its location provides for a more rustic landscape, and Orinda's many parks and trails make it a destination for many Bay Area hikers and naturalists.
  • Great place, great host

    Beatriz2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fred's place is even more comfortable and sparkling clean than the pictures can depict. All new appliances. Great wifi that's all your own. Nice deck area too to enjoy a little sunshine. Excellent little place to spend a weekend or more. Wish we could've stayed longer.

    Jacob2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This place is in a beautiful setting in Orinda surrounded by trees. The studio itself is very modern and has too many amenities to mention. Overall, a great experience and I would definitely stay there again!

    Zach2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a clean, safe and modern place to stay - look no further. The location is great for the East Bay and easy to get to. Quiet, private and safe....will book again if the need arises

    Christopher2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Fred's place was better than described! It was super clean and the amenities were above and beyond. He had everything you could possibly need for your stay. I would highly recommend!

    Latisha2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Fred’s studio is located in a beautiful, serene neighborhood, both close to nature and the convenience of Berkeley and adjacent cities. The studio is quite spacious and very stylish, with all the amenities you can think of. I also highly appreciated Fred’s quick responses to all my questions and the kind offer to give me a ride after noticing that I didn’t drive. Can’t recommend more!

    Yuan2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Words cannot explain how wonderful it was for us to have a place to decompress. Your place was everything we expected and more. Clean well appointed and close to everything. An amazing host and a restful place. We will definitely book again. We Love this place!

    Debbie2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Very spacious, clean and comfortable apartment nestled among redwoods and a creek, yet close to the center of Orinda. Space was private and well designed and had everything my husband and I needed for our stay. Coffee, tea and snacks were a nice extra. Fred was very responsive and helpful. Parking may be a little tricky to get in and out with a large vehicle. It was fine with our Prius. Would definitely stay again!

    Small cottage in the heart of the Elmwood neighborhood. Walk score: 91. Tree-lined streets, great food, Berkeley-vibes abound. Eat-in kitchenette, sunny porch, cozy living space.
    Well-loved, cozy space. The house was built in 1906 and much of the period detail has survived over the years.
    The neighborhood is friendly, safe, and pretty; a long growing season makes for lovely gardens. Happily, you'll be able to walk to the post office, library, cafes, bakeries, and a wonderful grocery store.
  • This is a terrific place to stay. Quiet. Lovely street near good food, coffee, theatres and close enough to the BART.

    Peter2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was my third time staying here with my wife. It’s the perfect size for 2 and in a wonderful area of Berkeley.

    Jay2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Delightful!

    Lori2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Diana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Margaret's place is wonderful and even cuter than the pictures. We had the best stay, and there was so much to see in walking distance. It's in the most charming neighborhood. Highly recommend. Wish we could visit again soon.

    Chelsey2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay! Nice neighborhood, close to UC Berkeley! Highly recommended!

    Irena2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very comfortable little apartment with a nice bed and good shower in a wonderful neighborhood. The host is very responsive and the airbnb is a great value for the area.

    Entire lower floor of a beautiful Mediterranean style home built in the 40's. Nestled in the Montclair hills surrounded by trees and scenery.
    Cozy and just completely remodeled. Full kitchen, cooks welcome! Enjoy your own patio with great views.
    The neighborhood is super quiet! No next door neighbors for hundreds of yards. If you're looking for a getaway surrounded by trees and nature this is your place!
  • Max’s place is superb. It is indeed a retreat. So peaceful for both vacationing or working. Although I travelled alone the apartment would be very comfortable for two. It is very spacious with lots of ‘moving-around’ room with separate sleeping, relaxing, dining and cooking areas and a lovely private patio. It is exactly as described by Max. I loved it and would certainly return. Previous comments mentioned it being dark at night. Yes - it’s surrounded by woodland. That’s the beauty of it. I carried a small LED torch for returning in the dark. It was not an issue.

    Ann-Marie2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • Max's place is immaculately clean, beautiful, spacious and well-equipped. Bathroom is huge and luxurious and the bed is super comfy. There were many generous and thoughtful touches including providing lots of spices for cooking as well as starter groceries like eggs and butter. Gated parking is a huge plus for security of your car. Check-in and checkout was easy and communication with host was excellent. And I watched a lot of movies on the big screen TV with its mega cable offerings! A few things to know before booking: You will hear the footsteps of dogs and people (in shoes) on the wood floors above you. Otherwise it's quiet and serene. There is no microwave, only a toaster oven. The wifi worked fine, but I could rarely get a cell signal with Tmobile -- this is a problem in some spots in the Oakland hills with some cell carriers. All that said, this is a terrific place and a great value!

    Nelle2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is fantastic! Very quiet area. The owner is an extremely available person and for any problem, he can have the solution at hand! I recommend it to everybody! If I could have given more than 5 stars, I would have done it!

    Paolo2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful Location! Max has wonderful hospitality.

    Myles2019-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • I love to stay at Max’s Airbnb. The place is so charming with all the gardens and nice decorative touches! I highly recommend to anyone.

    Sibyl2019-04-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful ABnB, wonderful owners. Communication was on the mark and very clear. This is a lovely, clean place in a nice neighborhood. It has all the amenities one could otherwise want to. Worth it and highly recommend it.

    Michael2019-04-17T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. It's nicely tucked in the hills of Oakland. Free parking. Though you do have to go up a set of stairs :\ But once inside, it's great! The decor is modern and stylish. And the place is pretty big. And I loved that I was able to watch a lot of shows on cable! My only complaints about the place are the lack of lighting from the door of the house to the front gate ((not the driveway gate, the other one) I stubbed my toe at night on the way to get some food I ordered), the lack of a microwave (there is an oven toaster, but it's not the same obviously), thin floors that you can hear noise from the floor above (not an issue for me, but it's there), and lack of curtains/blinds in the bathroom windows. I made some makeshift curtains from the bath towels, but hopefully she adds some blinds/curtains soon!

    Francisco2019-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great time here with my significant other! Everything I needed or expected was available. Sometimes you want some interaction with the hosts, sometimes you don't. This time we got the zero interaction we wanted hahaha, which we appreciated. We reccomend Montclair's Egg shop for breakfast, and on sundays that same area has a farmer's market.

    A quiet detached studio with a deck and views of the SF skyline, bathroom with bathtub, walk in closet, tempurpedic mattress, private parking space, just minutes from Oakland NO KITCHENETTE at the moment. Have your coffee on the peaceful, private deck, your noisiest neighbors being the deer or turkeys wandering through the surrounding redwoods below. Our studio can accommodate two people, there is a fold out sofa for two more. Well behaved pets welcome.
    Quiet residential neighborhood, ideal for a retreat to the hills. If you're looking for a loud party spot, this isn't it, but if you're looking for peace and tranquility, and the sounds of nature while looking at the city? You'll find it here. Private detached quiet studio in a residential neighborhood with sweeping views and lots of wildlife. No public transportation, you will need a car or use a ride app/taxi to get around. No kitchenette, but we offer a small refrigerator, coffee machine, teas, dry breakfast and snacks. Smart HDTV with cable, good for streaming preloaded with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and YouTube apps. You'll need your own subscription to login.
    Contemporary home nestled in the Oakland, Montclair hills, stunning views and peaceful neighbors.
  • Debbie’s place was super cute and very comfy! My fiancé and I really enjoyed our stay here. The views are literally amazing and it was in the perfect location. Debbie was incredibly nice and was always available for anything we needed. I would totally recommend staying here for your Oakland travels!!

    Heewon2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie is a very nice person and my stay was wonderful. The view of the house is also very beautiful!!! Thanks a lot!!!

    Qian2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Debbie's place is well worth the money. It is inviting, clean, comfortable, and stylish. The view of the San Francisco Bay Area from the house is mesmerizing. Debbie is very kind and a wonderful host.

    Nicole2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Debbie’s was amazing! The views on the way up and the view from the deck were breathtaking! Debbie made our stay so easy and welcoming. The place itself was extremely clean and aesthetically pleasing. We appreciated the little touches she put into it: the coffee/tea and snack bar, the towels and toiletries, the linen. She even made up the sofa bed so we would have an extra bed. It was the perfect place to stay and not a bad drive to get into San Francisco. I would love to stay there again, next time for a longer stay!

    Kellie2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay at Debbie's, and it was just as amazing as the first! I highly recommend it! I'll be back!

    Amy2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Jade2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Jimmy2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful location and drive into the hills. Thoughtful touches and squeaky clean upon arrival. Debbie stays in communication and made our stay feel special. Uber/lyfts into city arent bad and postmates are possible for a night in!

    In Orinda. Wonderful airy, sunny room, private entrance, sit on the deck with cup of coffee or tea and look out on nature. It has a double bed now, prefer 1 person only. It's close to BART to get to SF & more. You’ll love it here - access to pool/yard, refrigerator in room, coffee maker, wifi and cable. Great restaurants, SF, ocean, wine touring, mountains close by. Best for adventurers, visiting friends/family, business travelers. Shared bathroom - your own sink/counter/drawer space. No AC.
    A WONDERFUL PLACE TO STAY WHETHER IT'S RAIN, SUN or CLOUDS!! You can have your door and windows open or closed, listen to Pandora or catch something on Netflix. Bathroom is in next room. It's ideal for visiting friends & relatives, writing, preparing for meetings (wifi), walking the hills, day trips to wine tasting, the ocean, SF, Point Reyes, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Sacramento Train Museum, Muir Woods, Santa Cruz and Half Moon Bay. There's great shopping too.
    This a beautiful quiet residential neighborhood. There are loads of restaurants close by, a Safeway, RiteAid, CVS, gas, and more. Walnut Creek, Emeryville, Oakland and Berkeley offer live entertainment every night and great shopping. You don't have to go over the bridge.

  • Pam is a SUPERSTAR host. You can tell that she put thought into every detail to make your stay perfect. It’s a private room but so well designed that it feels like a stay at the entire place. Pam is so friendly and so accommodating to your needs. This place is definitely book marked and I will be back whenever it’s available.

    Alisha2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect what you see in photos, etc and more. Beautiful neighborhood and quiet. Pam is an excellent host that was warm and amicable when we talked in addition to giving me space to do my own thing. She gives clear expectations and was flexible with my needs. Solid.

    Jason2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • This area is exquisite. The trees, plants and area are amazing. The room feels like a little cabin in the woods. I loved the private entrance.

    Waleed2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • I loved Pam‘s place! It’s in a beautiful, wooded area, and you can commute from the UC Berkeley campus area without hitting the freeways. The room has a private entrance, and once you’re inside it’s very clean and warm. She also goes ‘above and beyond’ with appliances like a water kettle, coffee maker and toaster along with a midsize fridge. There are towel racks in the bedroom to keep your towels dry and an excellent, very clean bathroom. She also takes care of small details like having snacks around, including tea, instant oatmeal, granola bars and candy :-) I loved the place and I will definitely return if our schedules align. Thanks Pam!

    This is a newly refurbished detached bedroom and full bath with a private (keyed) entrance from our wooded yard. Peaceful and quiet. 5 minute drive to BART station and just 25 minutes to San Francisco. Near Berkeley, Lafayette, Walnut Creek and wine regions. Carport parking space and Wi-Fi included.
    Our home was built in 1929 and I guess it would be considered 'Mission' style. The house, in an Orinda hilltop neighborhood, sits in the center of a 2/3 acre lot containing 11 mature oak trees, a lawn and garden filled with rhododendrons, azaleas and Japanese maples. There is also a koi pond, large succulent garden and a greenhouse. Quiet, park like setting. Feel free to wander the yard and gardens during your visit.
  • Gary’s place was perfect for my husband and me. It is in a beautiful location surrounded by gorgeous oak trees and a lovely succulent garden. The space itself was small but really nice – very tastefully decorated with nice art on the walls. The bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. It was very quiet, secluded and serene. The neighborhood was lovely. You definitely need a car because it is on top of a hill but that was no problem for us. Gary was very nice and personable and his communication with me beforehand was excellent. We would definitely stay there again. We loved it – I highly recommend it!

    Nancy2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

    Elissa2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed a comfy, quiet, private stay in a beautiful, natural environment! Loved the vast array of plants, the walkways, and the peaceful Koi pond! Gary is an excellent host! Family recommended this AirBnB to me. This was my second stay, and I will stay here on my next visit to the area!

    Ella2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

All in all, I really enjoyed my stay here!

My clumsy self slipped into the hot tub and broke a vertebrae on my back while there ( Btw, this had nothing to do with a safety issue. ) Marcia offered for us to stay as long as we needed free of charge and to also come back for a redo vacation. Outstanding place and hostess!!

    Justine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place!

    Josh2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect little getaway for a couple. Bed was super comfy, the room was very clean. If you like to watch the morning sunrise in a hot tub, this is the place to be. Best host we have ever had! She had get suggestions for local sites and bites. We will return.

    Randall2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Marica’s place was charming and lovely. The views were beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. Thank you for letting us stay and enjoy a fun filled birthday weekend.

    Amy2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Marcia was incredibly hospitable and responsive. She gave plenty of suggestions and guidance during our stay! The room felt very private and had a fantastic view. Would definitely recommend if you are wanting to stay in the Bay Area.

  • Dave was a grate host he has a sparkling clean home in a quiet neighborhood me and my wife really enjoyed our stay at Dave’s would recommend anyone in the area to stay here thanks Dave

    Sean2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Dave’s just a couple nights while we were moving out of out house. Stressful time and Daves was perfect! First of all, the new bathroom with rain shower did not disappoint. Loved the smooth pebble shower floor. Hotel quality and my favorite part of the stay! Second it was QUIET. After 2 long days of moving, appreciated the stillness (except for birds, which was lovely), outside and in. Slept like a bear and so did my dog. Lastly, super safe and super clean and I’m super picky about that. Thanks Dave, from me and Bella!

    Alexis2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. I was in town to visit my daughter who is a student at Cal and to attend my younger daughter's regatta in Orinda. The location was perfect, only 10 minutes from my daughter's apartment in a very pretty, safe neighborhood. The room itself was clean, stylish and very comfortable with everything I would need for a weekend. I brought my French Bulldog and he was very comfortable in the space. Overall I highly recommend Dave as a host and his home!

    Jana2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I had a wonderful stay and Dave is an amazing host. Will definitely look to stay there again in the future.

    Conrad2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Nice private spot in a lovely neighborhood of the Oakland hills with views to die for from various key locales. (Exploratory walks of the neighborhood highly recommended, but it's hilly!) Dave was responsive and helpful throughout, everything worked, the bathroom remodel is top-quality (heated floors, fancy shower!), the bed was comfy and kitchen stocked with essentials. Really enjoyed our stay and only wished it could have been longer. Downside for elderly or infirm: the trek from car to entrance in back is a bit strenuous, it being on a pretty serious slope that makes lugging suitcases a challenge—even more so at night. (Going back uphill with suitcases upon departure is strenuous too, but in a different way...) Not being too old or infirm (yet!), we would definitely consider going back for a second helping next time we head to the Bay Area.

    Andrew2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was a perfect place for my boyfriend, dog and I to land for a few days. Check in was super easy and Dave and Madelyn were responsive and quick to answer any questions we had. Nice bathroom. Kitchen had everything we needed to make some meals, and the little yard space was perfect for quick outings for the dog. We walked to coffee shop down the hill for super good breakfast burritos. Parking outside the house was easy.

    Maria2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • I will definitely stay here next time I’m in SF

    Marcos2019-12-09T00:00:00Z

    When you are visiting the Bay Area, house hunting, on a job assignment, spending time with family, or just want a peaceful place to be or to write, this serene, comfortable hotel alternative in nature may be perfect for you.
    Small, separate cottage-like room with windows on three sides opens onto a Japanese garden and ancient oaks. Separate full bathroom is a few steps away. Amenities include: free high speed internet and Wi-Fi, mini-fridge, microwave, electric tea kettle, laundry, and access to hammock and outdoor seating. A new outdoor kitchen complete with sink, work surface, mini-fridge, butane burner, barbecue and outside fireplace is also available to guests.. There is an 11x11 foot screened in "gazebo" tent on a platform with bed, foam mattress and down comforter for sleeping outdoors amidst the oaks; check to see if it is available (no additional charge). There is lots of off-street parking and room to roam on a full acre. Secluded setting yet only a 10+ minute walk to the little village of Orinda where you’ll find a host of restaurants, movie theater, drugstore, ice cream shop, and Peet’s (and Starbucks) coffee; five minutes further walking will take you to the Orinda BART station. So, while it is handy to have a car, it's not essential. Orinda is well-situated out of the Bay Area fog belt, only 25 minutes by direct BART train to downtown San Francisco, even closer to Berkeley and Oakland in one direction, Concord and Walnut Creek in the other. Easy access to the wine country an hour away. Also super convenient for performances at the California Shakespeare Theater (Cal Shakes) in Orinda. Light breakfast snacks including Peet's coffee are provided. Sometimes, a Breakfast Basket with a delicious full breakfast may magically appear outside your door... You may never want to leave! (No smoking or pets please) * The cottage room is not large; probably best for a single or a compatible couple (and/or a couple with a small child). There is lots of outdoor space however.

    This is a master bedroom suite with an attached private bathroom, deck and private entrance. The main room has the bed and the kitchenette. The deck has a table and chairs so you can relax outside and enjoy the views.
    We are in a quiet neighborhood, surrounded by hills, forests and amazing hiking. There are dozens of trail-heads close by and Orinda is a popular location for road biking. Downtown Orinda (7 mins) has restaurants and coffee shops and an Art Deco Cinema. The world class cuisines of Berkeley and Oakland are about 15 minutes away.
  • Mat’s place was exceptionally clean and had an awesome view.

    Escape to tranquility into the hills above Oakland and allow the concerns of the big-city to dissolve into the feather-soft essence of the morning mist as it sweeps through the lush, green trees surrounding you. In the morning, brew up a cup of coffee or tea, and slip into your patio for most relaxing morning you've had in a long, long time. Being here with the vast expanse of nature while allowing yourself to be present to it and let it in may just calm you down enough to let go of your worries
    Surrounded by year round natural beauty, you can drive a few minutes to browse, buy a coffee or take care of other needs. Guests frequently comment on the tranquility of being surrounded by trees and gardens. Our bedrooms are comfortable, sunny, private enclaves yet extremely close to expansive hiking and very close to piedmont and Montclair. The location provides easy access to the rest of the wonderful Bay Area. It is a perfect getaway. The views are breathtaking, all three floors of our home have patios with views that capture down town San Francisco, the bay bridge and the golden gate bridge on a clear day. This is a perfect space for hosting a work related gathering, the wifi is fast and consistent, and there is a desk space set up as well as full private access to the sauna. In your studio you can utilize your small private bathroom and shower. You also have your own mini fridge in the Suite, new drapes just installed ( not pictured ) a 42' TV which runs Roku with Netflix, will also hook up to your computer, hangars for your clothing, a mini hot pot, microwave, toaster, and much more. We just ask that after 10pm you be mindful of sound as the house is filled with working professionals who go to bed around 10pm and wake early. Thus, this is not a place for a party or significant alcohol.
    We are at the pinnacle of the hills above the bay area with views that span so far that you can take in SF downtown and both bridges from our porch, and yet, at the same time, we are just 10m from the bustle and culture of college avenue, and just 5m from the freeway with quick access to the full breadth of the SF Bay Area. Beyond that, we are literally a 3 minute walk from one of the most precious hidden gems in the SF Bay Area... Sibley Volcanic Preserve. The last picture of our listing is actually of Sibley, and its waiting for you to get your body energy up with a brisk walk, hike or run.

    Kristina2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This place was badass. There are two beds, I preferred the smaller bed as it was cushier. The shower has a nice rain shower head that felt great after a long sauna. The benefit of this place I overlooked was actually the deck. Perfect and spacious enough to do morning and dusk yoga on. If your body and can't take 2 steep stair cases, that might be a thing. Only positive things to say about this place. Highly recommended. Will hit up Jonathan again if I'm ever in town again.

    Erik2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully easy check-in and check-out for a great Airbnb nestled in a quiet and scenic bend the Oakland Hills. The sauna and large private deck really make this place a great value place to stay. As someone used to noise from being a dog owner and living in apartments, I wasn’t overly bothered with the noisy upstairs neighbors, but if you’re an early sleeper or late riser who’s easily woken up, might not be the best place, as the upstairs neighbors have kids running around and shouting pretty frequently. Otherwise a great stay!

    Relax and unwind at this luxurious “cabin in the woods”. This unique property is situated in a wonderfully relaxing setting, yet you are a mere 6 miles to the world-famous UC Berkeley (“Cal”). Nature abounds here and you’ll feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the Bay Area - even though you're only 15 minutes to Berkeley, 30 minutes to downtown SF, and less than an hour from Napa. An ideal place to decompress and recharge away from it all while also close to conveniences.
    Nestled under a towering redwood called The Sentinel and amongst 100-year-old oak trees you'll feel like you're living in your own private tree house. The property features a greenbelt of woods and a seasonal burbling brook runs around the property. Being near the charming woodland creatures really allows one to unplug from modern stress: We have a family of raccoons, beautiful deer - bucks with large antlers and mothers with their babies come this way, little foxes were born and raised nearby. You will likely hear the occasional neigh of horses stabled nearby and the howl of coyotes and the hooting of owls at night. And let’s not forget the dragonflies, hummingbirds wild turkeys and their other winged friends. Note: The cabin is detached and private but it is one of three structures that makes up the compound. It sits directly above the main house and the guest cottage both of which can be seen from the cabin. Please see the photos to gain a better understanding of the layout of the property and the space.
    The location is served by two international airports: OAK (Oakland – 20 miles away) and SFO (San Francisco – 30 miles away). Orinda Village is just 5 minutes down the road and includes a Safeway, theater, banks, restaurants, cafes and shops.
  • The best airbnb experience I have ever had. From communication, cleanliness, amenities, and stylish touches, Neil did an excellent job with the place. I would highly recommend staying here at least once! I will definitely be back again I’m the summer. Thank you, Neil!

    Bao2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • A great location if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities while still being close enough to Oakland, Berkley and SF in case you do feel like being out and about. The property itself is beautifully tucked away in the hills of Orinada with decor and stylings to match a room appropriately called the “Buddha Suite”. In addition to the natural ambiance and peaceful location, Neil himself was a most gracious host. He was highly attentive and was very accommodating bringing us extra plates, towels, and blankets whenever we needed. I definitely feel that Neil put our comfort as a top priority and his personal touch had me feeling like we had our own concierge during our time there, it was truly a wonderful hospitality experience. I’ll definitely be back as this is now my new getaway destination when I need to decompress from the busyness of everyday life but don't want to be too far from home. Thanks again for a great experience and allowing us to stay in your lovely home Neil!

    Eric2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • All around 5-star review! We were greeted by Neil when we got to the property. He offered to help us with bags and showed us the space and how things operate. Neil's property is beautiful and well thought out from the color scheme, attractive decor, sauna, and heated bathroom floors. I had several questions during the stay and Neil's response rate was impressively fast. He's really on it as a host! I would recommend and stay again. Thank you for the wonderful stay, Neil!

    Kelly2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Every detail of the experience was wonderful! We arrived very late at night and Neil still greeted us and showed us everything we needed to know. My bf is an athlete so having the sauna in our room was amazing and so convenient. The blinds are amazing. Beautiful large windows and then auto mic blinds to shut. There is even a massage room above the hill. Neil booked it for me and had a wonderful masseuse come. Overall extremely relaxing, in a beautiful environment, with a wonderful host. Couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you Neil!

    Shannon2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great night away from our little one, but still close to home. Would recommend this peaceful getaway. Neil was very responsive and friendly.

    Katie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable and stylish space. Neil is very accommodating and very responsive. He greeted me upon my arrival and walked me through everything. He really wants his guests to have a wonderful experience and is helpful in every way.

    Randy2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    Alexis2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I love using AirBnB. We travel both domestically and abroad and always look for a secret gem or something that really stands out. Neil’s AirBnB is just that. His home is located in the middle of the East Bay while being secluded in a private and lush setting. Honestly, the experience is pretty magical in and out of Itself. The indoor shower is set up in a way that you feel like your showering in the open wilderness while being surround by the forest and vegetation. Inside the home is also a well kept sauna which is perfect to relax in after a long day. On top of this, you have a private patio with a fire pit and a detached room above fit with a massage chair that is ready for a tranquilizing experience. Neil himself serves as the concierge of the property and is always available to answer any questions you may have. One of the most overlooked features of the AirBnB is the bed itself. I have to say, this was one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in (puts mine to shame). Also, the furnishings of the room have been meticulously picked out and perfect for the vibe. This AirBnB is perfect for a night away whether you live in the area and want to experience something set away from the craziness of the Bay Area, or if you are visiting from out of State and want to see he perfect combination of East Bay living. Hands down the best AirBnB I have ever been to. Even though I live 10 minutes away, I will definitely be coming back. Thank you, Neil. Not only for an incredible experience, but also for making Valentines Day this year one to never be forgotten.

    Located 60 stairs down from street level is our private, modern studio cottage with a spectacular 180 degree view of downtown Oakland, San Francisco, the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate Bridge. If you're looking for a relaxing retreat where you can enjoy peace and quiet, this is the place for you!
    The cottage is located near the bottom of the property. Inside is a queen size bed, modern bathroom, kitchenette and heated floors. Guests must be comfortable walking down numerous stairs (approximately 60) from street level down to the cottage. There is pathway lighting and handrails. Bayview Cottage is located approximately 30 miles from San Francisco International Airport and 13 miles from Oakland International Airport. In good traffic conditions, SFO is about a one hour drive. From OAK, it is a 30 minute drive. The nearest major public transportation is the Rockridge BART(Bay Area Rapid Transit) train station, which is a 15 minute drive from the cottage. From the closest highways (Hwy 13 and Hwy 24), the drive to the cottage goes up winding roads that are narrow at times. Although ride share services do come to the property, this can be a time-consuming process, especially later into the evening. It is recommended that guests rent or drive their own vehicles while visiting.
    The charming village of Montclair is a 10 minute drive from the cottage. There you can find major grocery stores and a lovely selection of cafes and restaurants. Within walking distance and a short drive of the cottage are numerous beautiful regional parks that offer excellent hiking and walking trails.
  • It was the perfect stay for us with the best view ever. Heather is a perfect host and the cottage is beautiful.

    Stefan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Heather's cottage was such a nice stay. The views of the bay where amazing and it was a perfect little spot to spend a few nights. Will definitely see if it's available again next time I need to stay overnight in the Bay area

    Margaux2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Breath taking views and quiet! The cottage was perfect! Heather was an amazing host! Checking in and out was easy! Heather puts a lot of thought into making her guests comfortable! Highly recommend and will be telling EVERYONE about this place!

    Samantha2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Bayview cottage was the perfect place to get away during our Valentines weekend Staycation. The pictures don’t do it justice. It’s a beautiful studio nestled on the side of a mountains-cape that overlooks The Bay. Heather was a kind and responsive host who added little touches (champagne for V day!). The sunsets were unbeatable. Overall we loved our experience- the only thing we didn’t anticipate were the stairs going in and out of the cottage, we knew they were there (Heather is very clear with the check in instructions) and they were well lit at night, but it’s definitely a steeper climb than expected. Don’t bring a roller bag like I did :)

    Tessa2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here once before and just couldnt stay away! If you need a little break from the world Heather and Doug's cottage is the place to do that. The views are absolutely breathtaking! Not to mention Heather and Doug are by far the best hosts. Cant wait to come back!

    Krystle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place. Romantic setting. Lot's of attention to details. Very good experience.

    Joe2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a place! I travel for business and find myself in Oakland from time to time. I usually stay in hotels for that is what business people do right? I decided to mix it up this trip and I am glad that I did. Check-in was smooth and all communications with host Heather were answered within 10 minutes. The steps down to the cottage are well worth the minimal effort required to this comfortable and cozy abode. Peaceful, serene and private with spectacular views of Oakland, the bay and the San Francisco skyline. Sunsets were amazing and evening lights were equally as beautiful as the daily vistas. The small village of Monteclaire is within a 10-minute drive and well worth the venture.....I will definitely return.

    Gorgeous mid century two private bedrooms, one bath minutes from Tilden Park. Off street parking, access to public transportation, close to UC Berkeley Campus and stadium. Check in time is after 3:00pm! Zoning Permit- ZCSTR2017-0168
    Two bedrooms and one bathroom. This mid century modern, beautifully decorated rooms look out on the bay. There is no kitchen, but there is a mini refrigerator and coffee maker. There is a beautiful deck and hot tub to enjoy the incredible views!
    Quiet, safe, lovely residential neighborhood near Tilden park!
  • Rebecca was a great host, she responded extremely quick to messages. The beds were comfortable and the hot tub was glorious, killer views.

    Danyelle & Rob2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • super cute! only thing is that its directly under the host's property so its a bit less privacy. and the drive up is veryyy windey

    Tësha2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • I’d recommend Rebecca’s place for others as it has super cute decor, has a hot tub and is located close to Tilden Park. Rebecca was quick to respond and the check in process was easy peasy! We loved sitting on the deck, taking in the view and drinking coffee in the morning. The only downside is that hot tub hours are only at night and we would have liked to take a morning dip.

  • This quaint little place was perfect! Located in a beautiful, charming neighborhood in the Oakland Hills, it served us very well. It was very clean, very quiet, and most comfortable! Great shower!! Easy TV! There is a great little market within walking distance and a cafe next door to that. Upon any trip to Oakland, this would be my first choice place to stay again.

    Priscilla2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Patricia's. The bed was comfortable and the space was well designed, clean and modern. Very well stocked, every detail was considered. It is small, but met our needs perfectly and we loved the neighborhood. Would definitely recommend and we plan to return if need be in the future.

    Christine2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • A cozy little space in such a great location. Patricia was a great host and her space had everything it needed! I would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone staying in the Bay Area, especially if you plan to go to different cities around the bay. It was a great spot to travel from and such an easy place to get back to.

    Rachel2019-12-16T00:00:00Z

  • 2nd time here and still love it. The house is small, but has everything one would want - especially privacy! (So hard to find a place that isn’t attached to the owner’s or too close for comfort!). The redwood trees out the back windows are amazing, and the fireplace was perfect for slightly chilly nights. Minimal decorations make the space feel more open and the bed is comfy cozy. Love!

    Relax and unwind in this stunning brand new Cabana with endless views. Private and serene location on 3-1/2 acre property separate from the main house where my husband and I reside. A Quick drive to downtown Orinda, BART or HWY 24. For your convenience we have the option of electric vehicle plug in. Also if you would like to use the hot tub, it can be arranged for a $20 fee to offset the heating cost.
    Private gate to property with private entrance and parking. (No smoking, parties or pets please)
    This beautiful, secluded property in nature is in a convenient location with easy access to the entire SF Bay Area and Wine Country. Only a 5 minute drive to the village of Orinda and BART station. 15 minutes to Berkeley, 20 minutes to Oakland and 30 minutes into downtown San Francisco (traffic permitting).
  • The cabana is a gorgeous space located high in the Orinda hills. The cabana was recently remodeled to a really high standard, and was sparkling clean when I arrived. The location is perfect if you want peace and quiet, but still want to be near shops, cinema, restaurants, and the freeway. All of which are a short drive away. I can't recommend the cabana highly enough.

    Gerry2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the cabana!! We had a last minute change in accommodations and this place was a lifesaver! Had stayed in a hotel the night before and it couldn’t compare. Seriously the comfiest bed, the cutest place and best view! Barbara was wonderful, and I hope we get to stay again. Hopefully longer next time.

    Tori2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This Cabana is absolutely gorgeous! Barbara is so kind and she put so much attention into even the small details. The cabana is also a lot bigger than it looks! Definitely would recommend staying here.

    Maddy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • My favorite place in the Bay! Quiet, clean and best views in town. Host Barbara is the best!

    Joni2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

    Steven2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

    Em2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Cleaner and more comfortable than any hotel. The sunrises over the hills are amazing. Pro tip: if you accidentally go past the entrance, there's an easy turnaround at the top of the hill.

  • We had a great stay at Jim and Diana's. My mother and I were in the area visiting my brother at Berkeley and this place was perfect for us. We each had separate spaces with separate entrances to the bathroom, beds were very comfortable, the space was extremely clean, and it was quiet. We slept great and loved having such a convenient home base - we walked to get coffee, pastries, shopping, restaurants, etc every day. Great touches throughout the place like outlets everywhere, heated bathroom floor, well stocked. We have already talked about coming back next year and hope to stay here again!

    Ragan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment with superb amenities throughout and sparkling clean. We felt welcome from the time Jim greeted us upon our arrival and enjoyed the comforts of their outstanding space. The stairs are steep but well-lit and worth the climb. We’ll be coming back!

    Cecilia2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay. The place is roomy, cozy, conveniently located and spotless. Definitely a place that we would certainly stay at again when we visit Oakland.

We appreciated the comfortable bed and the clean bathroom decorated in style. The location is one of the best that we stayed so far. Jim was terrific in communication and considerate accommodating our needs. We visit the area quite often and their place tops any other Airbnb places we have stayed.

We found it exactly as described in the listing and photos, and it featured everything we needed for a comfortable stay just off College Ave. Jim and Diana were very responsive before and during our trip, and provided everything we needed for our toddler as well, including bath toys, kid's books, a high chair, and a pack and play. We highly recommend this apartment.

    David2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Sharon’s place was very clean and quiet. I stayed with one of my groomsmen the night before my wedding. On the day of my wedding all my groomsmen and our photographer came by and found the place no problem. We had ample room to get ready together and take some photos on Sharon’s beautiful property. Her husband even came out to give us fresh squeezed orange juice with our champagne! The only pain point was check in. We arrived late after our rehearsal dinner around 10:30pm and the code on the lock didn’t work. After calling Sharon and her husband and messaging them about the issue to no response, we had to knock on there door to get help and eventually get a key into the place. Other than that, we had a great stay and recommend it to anyone!

  • Sharon and Drew are friendly. Their rooms are very clean and quiet place. There is not a kitchen, but a microwave, toaster, coffee maker, water heater, some cutlery, dishes, wine glasses etc. It is easy to check-in. It is also convenient to reach Berkely and San Francisco. We used BART from Orinda station to get San Francisco. It was fun. Near the station, there are some coffee shops and a grocery store. We definitely visit again when we go to SF again. Thank you, Sharon and Drew.

    Jessica2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second time staying here and I absolutely love it! It is so charming and comfortable. Suzanne is a wonderful host!

    Barbara2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Always a lovely stay here! My go to place when I visit the area.

    Katie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Suzanne’s place is super clean and very stylish. The place is located on a mountain so surrounded by a lot of greens. And it’s very close to SF, Oakland, Berkeley etc. there are a lot of nice restaurants close by-super convenient. We loved the huge walk-in closet and the double sinks. Shower is awesome too. Overall one of the best Airbnb experiences. highly recommended!

    Cathy2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • This is really my favorite "home away from home" . I have stayed here several times and it's perfect if you plan to visit the East Bay. Very close to BART(from Orinda station you are 25 min from SF) . You get a private "suite" with free parking, private entrance and a very nicely furnished bedroom-sitting room WITH gas fireplace (which comes in handy in Winter or on a foggy night).

    Robert2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect spot to stay! Suzanne’s home is stylish, comfortable and immaculately clean. Yard is beautiful; easy parking and wonderful communication. A gem!

    Anne2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • You cannot go wrong with staying here! Suzanne is a lovely host and the property is amazing. My husband and I enjoyed it very much. It was the perfect place for us to stay while visiting family in the area. Suzanne really understands how to make her guests feel comfortable. I can’t wait to stay here again!

    Leslie2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great spot. Feels like a hideaway in the hills, but just a a couple of minutes to downtown Orinda or 24. Very nice, clean in law unit. Very comfy bed, nice bathroom/shower, and a huge closet. The gas (electric on/off) fireplace is a very nice touch. Theres also a couch and TV, although I never turned it on

  • Leann and Jason's cottage is dreamy! Nestled in the hills of Berkeley, it is quiet, beautiful and very cozy. Proximal to the city and university but removed enough to be relaxing, wifi was great (I work remotely so this was important) and the space was totally charming.

    Maressa2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and very accommodating hosts. Would definitely stay at Leann & Jason’s place again.

    Kenny2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Such a perfect little 'Zen Garden' cottage in a quiet, private, neighborhood. Parking was easy (not always a guarantee in Berkeley!), the bed was comfortable, and the hot shower was amazing. My favorite detail was the fish pond/fountain outside the front porch. The running water sound was so calming, and the garden vies from all of the windows were idyllic. Definitely a perfect, magical, 'de-stress' spot!

    Kathryn2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This cabin is so cozy. A great escape from the city but close enough to everything.

    Nina2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is the perfect respite in the Berkeley hills. It has location, quiet and is very comfortable. It is a very cozy and well appointed space.

    Jennifer2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great cottage! Heats up really quick, well-stocked bathroom, a working Keurig coffee machine. And yet, you feel a million miles away, what with the pond and the chickens. Idyllic!

    Lev2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

  • Marilyn is an awesome host and her place is perfect. We stayed there for two nights, the room has amazing amenities, adjustable mattress, heated floor, doggie friendly. Marilyn went above and beyond providing timely instructions, blanket and water bowl for the doggie. She was also super responsive the whole time, we can't be happier with our stay. Would love to come back!

  • Marilyn was a wonderful host, very communicative with check-in and directions. I was supposed to stay the night with my best friend, but ended up not being able to make it. My friend said the place was beautiful and relaxing, very zen like. She only wished she had another day to enjoy. Thanks Marilyn for helping her out, she’s an Airbnb novice.

    Peg And Jeff2020-01-12T00:00:00Z

  • Brilliant location with the most amazing views of the city! Jill is an excellent host that provided us with everything we needed and was always quick to communicate with us. The space was clean and quiet and we immediately felt right at home during our stay. We could not recommend staying at this location more.

    Ashley2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • Jill’s home is wonderful. Beautiful view of the SF bay. Jill is an excellent communicator and extremely thoughtful. The place was clean and I felt at home right away. More than enough space for 1-2 people. Could not recommend more!

    Elliot2019-07-31T00:00:00Z

    Take in the panoramic vistas of the canyon and wildlife preserve, plus the Golden Gate Bridge, from this modern Scandinavian space. The interior designer host has curated every detail to blend style and comfort, with the post-and-beam ceiling a standout.
    The space is the perfect blend of tranquility and style. We're on a very quiet street with gorgeous panoramic views of the Claremont Canyon and wildlife preserve, and the Golden Gate Bridge. The studio is furnished in a modern, Scandinavian style with custom lights and a spa bathroom. Very comfortable queen-size bed for weary travelers. The studio is equipped with a small kitchen and a couple pans for minimal cooking.
    Nestled in the Claremont Hills just behind the historic Claremont Hotel, from here it's easy to explore the Bay area. Drive a few minutes down the hill to main shopping and dining thoroughfares. Hike on the trail that starts at the end of the street.
  • Nice and clean studio in a quiet area. A car is useful to get to the studio.

    Steffen2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

  • Kathryn and Casey were so welcoming and thoughtful. The studio is very quiet, great decor, and just lovely and peaceful. I don’t need to look for alternatives in Berkeley anymore. They really made us feel at home.

    Kelly2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • I had another fantastic stay during a work trip. As usual Kathryn's place is comfy, warm super quiet- a wonderful respite to enjoy while I am in town. I even went for a walk on the nearby hiking trail one of the mornings -very refreshing. I highly recommend this place and look forward to booking another stay soon!

    Margret2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at Kathryn's. Beautiful setting, close to hiking trail and a great neighborhood for coffee, food and shopping.

    Kathleen2019-11-30T00:00:00Z

    Jocelyn2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, modern, super clean studio in a great location. Close to everything yet surrounded by nature and easy to find. The hosts are responsive, considerate and want their guests to be happy. This was my third stay and I highly recommend it.

We enjoy collecting on our travels, please enjoy our eclectic art from around the world!
    Welcome to our home in the Upper Rockridge area of the Oakland Hills. The apartment is perfect for couples or 2 friends traveling together who want their own bedroom, families, business people, people visiting family members who live in the East Bay, and international travelers. It is your home away from home! It is a large spacious 1100sq.ft 2 bedroom, one and half bath apartment that is part of our house but has it's own private entrance accessed by two flights of stairs (32 stairs to be exact). The bathroom has a shower (URL HIDDEN) bedroom has a King size bed and other has a queen size bed. It is spacious and sunny with a view of the Bay and San Francisco. Hardwood floors, full kitchen with breakfast nook, living room with large flat screen TV, private deck. Beautiful art and oriental rugs throughout. Conveniently located near great neighborhood shopping and dining in Rockridge, Piedmont Avenue, and Montclair Village and 15 minutes from University of California, Berkeley. Close to public transportation into San Francisco. We provide coffee and tea, and breakfast cereal with milk. There is a regional park, Lake Temescal, a grocery, Village Market,and Broadway Terrace Cafe within walking distance. Rockridge Station on the Pittsburg/Baypoint line of BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) is a 3 minute drive and a 20 minute walk (uphill coming back) Note: A car is highly recommend for easy access to everything during your stay.
    We have lived here for over 30 years and love our neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly and most nights there is a beautiful sunset. It is within walking distance of Lake Temescal Park with large grassy areas for picnics and of course the lake for swimming, hiking, walking, running. Also there is ample on street free parking.
  • Fantastic place. Law partner and I had a multi-week trial in downtown Oakland. This spot was prefect. Easy access to the courthouse, and plenty of delivery options for late night dining. Kitchen had everything you need. Most importantly, the beds were very comfortable and the balcony was absolutely lovely. After a hard day, to sit on the balcony in the sun and look out over the bay was a great way to clear ones head. Law partner also really liked the regional park nearby. Now the kicker: the trial got cancelled by the covid-19 outbreak, so we'll definitely be back (assuming the place is open).

    Nate2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed at Susan's place many times and it is our number one lodging choice in the Bay Area. My husband and I call the apartment our "home away from home". We'll be back!

    Helen2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay!! Location is amazing, view is incredible and the artwork inside is really really cool

    Kyle2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great, spacious apartment in the elegant Oakland Hills. You can watch sunsets over the Bay from the terrace, living room and bedrooms! Susan was very friendly and helpful, letting us check in early after an overnight flight. Car recommended - although we walked 10 minutes to a coffee shop and small market, and walked to Berkeley in less than an hour.

    Caroline2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place. Highly recommend.

    Danny2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • A pretty, meticulously clean and nicely decorated two bedroom apartment with an amazing view of SF.

    Margaret2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Susan’s place is beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful. Great art and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay immensely. After a long day of work, it was the perfect place to retire to our quarters (which are in sort of separate areas of the house) and get a good night’s sleep. Susan was available if we needed her, but also gave us autonomy. We loved her place and would definitely book it again!

    Marcy2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • We love this place! The host are wonderful, the view, the space, nice kitchen and baths, comfy beds and quiet setting in a great neighborhood. This was our third visit and we will stay again.

    Welcome to our spacious, remodeled in-law in the beautiful Upper Rockridge neighborhood. An escape into the hills, we are ideally located only a few minutes’ walk from bustling College Ave and Rockridge BART, with easy access to UC Berkeley, San Francisco and beyond. The unit is a large one-bedroom with full bath, living and dining rooms, and a kitchenette. Additional sleeping space on the living room trundle bed, and shared access to the huge, shaded yard with mature redwood and oak trees.
    Some details about the unit: - Bedroom: queen bed with Tuft & Needle mattress and Malouf sheets - Bathroom: his and hers sinks, tub / shower combo - Living room: 55” HDTV (log in to use your own streaming services), lots of games and books - Kitchenette: coffee and tea, microwave, fridge; hot plate and countertop oven available upon request - Shared access to large back yard Although this unit is newly remodeled, the building was built in the 1920s, and sound can travel in the building. Our family lives on the floor above, so you might hear footsteps. The unit is not suitable for parties, large gatherings, or lots of late-night activity.
    Rockridge is the best of Oakland! Centered around College Avenue, Rockridge is a picturesque, tree-lined, walkable neighborhood full of Craftsman homes. College Ave, a few minutes’ walk down the hill, offers a diverse array of boutiques, bookstores, coffee shops, bars and restaurants. Lake Temescal, a lovely public park, is a few minutes’ walk up the hill, and UC Berkeley is about 3 miles north.
  • Katie and Steve were great responsive hosts. Their remodeled unit was modern and spacious. I especially liked the amount of windows giving views into the shared backyard. Loved all the plants. Check in was a breeze with a private entrance after entering the main gate. As described in the listing, you can hear footsteps from above. However, it wasn't bothersome. The unit can be a bit cold, but there is heating and a very effective space heater.

    Seiha2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This space is very clean and spacious. Great location.

    Ellyn2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Katie & Steven’s space is super sweet and inviting. It has absolutely everything you could want for a cozy stay. The location is ideal- a quick 10 minute walk to the train station & ride into the city. Highly recommend!

    Lorissa2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place to stay! It is beautifully furnished with many nice amenities, in a lovely neighborhood. I would definitely hope to stay here again.

    Lynne2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I had a great stay at this location, a very spacious and light converted basement unit. The location was terrific, in a super quiet neighborhood up in the Oakland hills above Rockridge and close to great shops and restaurants along College Ave. My wife and I have stayed in 3 other AB&B places near College Ave (we have a daughter who was a student at Cal), and this was my favorite! The place was super clean and the hosts were uber-responsive to any needs, with thoughtful touches like a bottle of wine to welcome us. The unit is very private and generally quiet. The only small exception to be aware of is the pattering of feet, etc. from the hosts' family up above. It was not a problem for us, and not intrusive, but it is noticeable and I think potential guests should be aware of it. Even with that very minor caveat, I recommend this place highly.

    Jin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay. Everything you need from paper towels, salt, tin foil, they have it. Really makes it feel like home. The space is brand new, spectacular furnishings. The only down side is it is in a basement, and therefore I had 0 cell reception. But, the WiFi is so good it makes up for it.

    Julia2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • It was amazing! Loved it! Modern, clean, cute, spacious, view was to die for!

    Shannon2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
