    Rockridge Hills Custom House



    Custom home in Rockridge area of Oakland.


      We were pleased to be warmly welcomed with wine and fresh flowers, feeling like guests in the owner's home when we visited Oakland for our daughter's wedding. We had more than enough room for our very large group that included 3 small children and found the description and photos to be very accurate. The experience enabled us to spend informal time with extended family that would not have been possible in a hotel. Everything we could have wanted was available, including plentiful linens, a wonderfully well equipped kitchen, and best of all, the outstandingly landscaped yard which is accessible on multiple levels with terraces, balconies, and a sunny deck. This is a beautiful home in an upscale location, private, but close to major routes, restaurants, and shopping. The owners supplied us with extensive information about the local area as well as all the details we might need to understand and be comfortable in their home. This was our first experience renting a home and we will definitely try it again.
      Had a wonderful stay at this beautiful house.We used it for a family reunion for 3 families with teenage kids and everyone had ample space . There is a beautifully furnished and very peaceful garden in the back that makes you feel you're in the country even though the place is perfectly located 15 min drive to downtown San Francisco and an easy commute to all the attractions the Bay Area offers. We helped ourselves to delicious tomatoes and fruits from the garden and felt pampered with all the modern appliances inside. The hosts are charming and made every effort to make sure that our stay was extremely enjoyable.
      We had a party of 6 that stayed here for 5 nights for a wedding in Oakland. The house was everything it claimed to be and more. Dennis and Margaret were there to warmly welcome us and give a tour of the house, offering use of the lemon and apple trees that adorn the expansive back yard. There was ample space for everyone in our party and we were even able to host a gathering following the wedding reception (bride and groom in attendance!) because of the large communal spaces indoor and out. We were able to make use of the huge dinning room table and had several group dinners. Every pot, pan or cooking utensil was readily available in the well-stocked kitchen. The Rockridge neighborhood is a wonderful spot with College Ave. very close at the bottom of the hill containing many great shops and restaurants. This was the perfect spot for our stay. We will certainly be back the next time we are in the area.
      WOW what an amazing home for our Cal graduation celebration and family reunion. I was so excited about the information I could see on the internet regarding this home. When we arrived at the house I found the home was even more beautiful than I had imagined. We enjoyed spending time inside the home and enjoyed the sitting areas outside in the front and backyard. There was plenty of room for us all with the 5 bedrooms, main floor living areas and downstairs area. Everything we needed for our stay was provided. Even a lemon tree full of lemons to make our sun tea taste great! The home was in a very nice, safe and quiet neighborhood. It was a short drive to UCB campus, the BART station, many stores and restaurants. We went on day trips to San Francisco, Muir Woods and Napa Valley. In addition to the wonderful housing accommodations and great Bay area location the owners were extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming. Their detailed welcome document answered almost all our questions. We feel very fortunate to have found the perfect home for our family gathering.
      We just got back. Our family stayed at this house as we celebrated our nephew's graduation from Berkeley. The house had everything we needed. Plenty of room. And Margaret couldn't have been nicer. But thumbs up!
      My twin sons, my husband, and I so enjoyed staying in your house. What a lovely, lovely, comfortable home! Being there with other family members so enhanced our pleasure. The time sped by and I missed just pausing on the deck and absorbing the beauty. What a delight to have a Granny Smith right from your tree! Julie’s Vineyard Zin was a particularly tasty treat—thank you for providing it. We shared it on our last night with our spaghetti dinner. We’ll always treasure our first San Francisco trip in no small measure due to living in your home.
      We had family here for our daughter's wedding. We truly had a great time and I don't know how we would have done it if we had not had your beautiful home as our "home away from home".   After our wonderful time at your home, we are thinking we may try to rent our home at some point, too.  
      I just wanted to let you know we had a wonderful time at your home. It's a beautiful location and worked perfectly for us, and it was a great place to celebrate a Cal win!
      We had a wonderful time and loved our stay. Love, love, love your landscaping. It's a paradise. We absolutely adored the location and comfort of your home. My son fell in love with your deck and backyard. It is a little boys paradise as well! Thanks for opening your home to us.
      Great home one mile away from College Avenue. Very walkable neighborhood. Great running trails/sidewalks all around. Gorgeous landscaping and the owners are wonderful. Highly recommend!!

      Penthouse near Union Square and Nob Hill
      SEE OUR VIRTUAL TOUR (LINK BELOW) AND OUR UP-TO-DATE CALENDAR TO THE RIGHT. The Penthouse is five blocks from Union Square, Nob Hill, Chinatown and all cable car lines. It's luxurious, comfortable and close to many of the city's points of interest. The third-floor Penthouse is within walking distance to many of the city's attractions and accessible to many more via the famed San Francisco cable cars that traverse the area.

      If you're looking to take in a play, the Curran Theater, American Conservatory Theater and Marines Memorial Theater are located just off of Union Square. If it's shopping that interests you, choices abound, from multi-level stores like Neiman Marcus and Gumps to smaller signature stores like Tiffanys and Gucci. And then there's dining. San Francisco is known for its fine restaurants and many of them are in the Union Square and Nob Hill areas.

      Just four blocks from the Penthouse (on Bush Street near Jones Street) in another direction is Nob Hill, where you can have a drink at the Top of the Mark (Mark Hopkins Hotel) or grab one of the fabled cable cars for a ride to North Beach, Fisherman's Wharf or the Embarcadero.

      And while the Penthouse's proximity to many points of interest is a plus, the Penthouse itself is remarkable.
      Located in a lovely, vintage building, the Penthouse is beautifully decorated. The living and dining area, which seats 10 people, is richly appointed. It features a real wood burning fireplace. Two of the bedrooms have a queen-size bed and one bedroom has a CA King bed with deluxe down bedding and fourth story views over Bush Street from the balconies. There are TVs, Blu Ray DVDs and stereos in all three bedrooms and the living room. All TV's have access to over 100+ Comcast cable channels. There also iPod docking stations in all bedrooms and the living room. All new custom and designer furniture throughout this unit makes for a most comfortable retreat. A washer and dryer are located in the garage for your shared use.

      If staying in appeals to you, there is the gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, including wine refrigerator and built-in Miele coffee/espresso machine. Or there’s always the rooftop, where you can grill with a view and dine with the pleasure of gas heaters. And if none of those sound good, you can call Waiters On Wheels, which delivers food from a variety of restaurants, including Wolfgang Puck’s and Steps of Rome. And last but not least – especially in San Francisco – the Penthouse has a one-car garage.
