The neighborhood is called Upper Rockridge and is a quiet residential area overlooking the SF Bay and San Francisco. It is a very safe area with large privately owned homes and ample street parking. College Ave. with highly regarded restaurants, boutiques and interesting shops is just minutes away. UC Berkeley is also close by.
Since we're in the hills, a car is needed, however, there is 1 local bus stop nearby and we have 2 bikes available. The closest BART Station is about 10 minutes by car. BART gets you to San Francisco in about 30 minutes. Driving to San Francisco depends on traffic but usually takes between 20-30 minutes. We are well situated for day trips to the Wine Country,
Pt. Reyes, Monterey, Big Sur, and beautiful beaches.
Other things to note
There is 1 flight of steps from street level to our front door and the house is 2 stories. Hardwood floors downstairs and all bedrooms and hallways are carpeted. One bathroom has shower and the other has combination shower/bathtub.
We expect the house to be well-cared for and kept clean. No smoking, but well-behaved pets are OK. There is a doggy door for small dogs. There will be a security deposit in case there is any damage.
My wife and I are recently retired, starting to travel more, and would like to share our home when we are gone. We have been AirB&B guests so we know what it is like to be a guest in someone else's home. We keep our home clean and comfortable We would provide you with a welcome gift and information on how to enjoy our home and the Bay Area.
