The space

This 2,300 square-foot 4 bedroom house has the conveniences of a modern remodel along with 100-year-old Craftsman charm. The house is walking distance to nearly everything you would need (more on that below). The house is in a quiet, walkable neighborhood, but also close to highways and public transportation. It has a fully-remodeled, fully-stocked kitchen, 3 full bathrooms, 4 bedrooms plus lots of other space.

We have young kids, so we have some kid-oriented items available at your request - pack-n-plays, changing table, diaper pail, strollers, toys, etc.

Guest access

You'll have access to the entire house other than a small room that we'll use to store items that we clear from the main house to make your stay more comfortable. You will also have access to the back yard with outdoor furniture, outdoor lighting and gas grill.

Interaction with guests

Depending on the dates of your stay we may or may not be available to meet you. We can leave a key in a lockbox and are easily reached via mobile phone and email.

The neighbourhood

It's best feature is that it is within a 10-minute walk of the Rockridge BART, casual restaurants, upscale restaurants, cafes, bars, grocery stores, yoga, gym, shopping, ice cream shops, a farmer's market and more. From the Rockridge BART stop, downtown San Francisco is just 20 minutes away. (Getting to downtown S.F. can be quicker from Rockridge than from many parts of San Francisco).

The city was rated by Rand McNally as having some of the best weather in the country. Forbes Magazine listed Oakland's Uptown district as one of the top ten hipster neighborhoods in America, the New York Times placed Oakland on the paper's Top Ten list of cities in the world to visit, and journals ranging from the Wall Street Journal to the UK Guardian have all ran features extolling Oakland's innovative culinary scene.

Quick drive or BART ride to children's activities, the stadiums for the Oakland A's, Oakland Raiders, Golden State Warriors and S.F. Giants and quick access to all that San Francisco has to offer.

After booking I will provide recommendations on local cafes, restaurants and more.

Getting around

7-minute walk to Rockridge BART, plus many bus lines. There is easy street parking, and you can park in our driveway.

Dan’s house is beautiful, filled with natural light and perfectly located. Dan made sure we had everything we needed and explained how everything in the house worked. We had a great time eating and drinking in Rockridge, and San Francisco was a quick BART ride away. And parking was easy too. I highly recommend staying at Dan’s house.

I'm from the Boston area originally, lived in the Chicago area for a couple of years and have been in the San Francisco Bay area for about 15 years now. I now live in Oakland with my wife and two kids. I enjoy traveling and staying active with swimming, biking and hiking. We've rented from Airbnb hosts several times (with great ratings) and we now list our home as a rental.
