I have live here in the Greater Bay Area for over 60 years and traveled the world and I have yet able to find a better place other then here I call "home sweet home" a little history about this home. . On October 20, 1991 the worst urban wildfire in Bay Area history struck the Oakland/Berkeley Hills. . 3200 home was burned to the ground and this home was one of them. 1994 I have the opportunity to buy the from the previous owner who just didn't have the heart or energy to rebuild his burned home, I chose to buy the lot because of the awesome view of the Bay, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge, Oakland/San Francisco and San Rafael Bridges and not to mention the year around beautiful weather . . Since I was a home builder for many years, I and my engineer friend designed and rebuild this home and I have live in this "home sweet home" since 1996, the lower level suite was occupied by my children are now married. Recently I have remodeled the suite and added a kitchen, sound proof the suite and now ready to welcome you. . .

Why Owner chose Upper Rockridge

This 2 bedroom suite offer you a home setting with absolute privacy and most of hotel amenities for 1/3 of the price when compares to San Francisco hotel or inns.

You can also Ferry Boat ride to San Francisco, world famous Alcatraz Island, Angel Island, Sausalito.

The property was as described. The view was spectacular. It reminded me of a little Spanish villa. The residence was in a central location, and it was easy to travel to and from the city of San Francisci, Soma/Napa, as well as Oakland and Berkley. Plenty of space outside to eat, relax and entertain. Lots of restaurants and shops within a short drive of your stay. Owner was friendly and helpful when requested, but respected our privacy as well.
An amazing owner and home away from home
This is truly the most exquisite rental I’ve ever been blessed to call home - nestled on a ridge overlooking San Francisco Bay with truly a million dollar view and an unbelievable experience with the owner makes this rental the one that saddens you when checkout day arrives - thanks so much Warren and we promise to come back for more vacations in the future -
This is an absolute gem!
This place is an absolute gem! It is everything that it advertises on the website. There is plenty of on street parking in front. The unit is roomy, comfortable, and clean. Even one bathroom worked out fine for 4 adults for 3 days. The view is worth a million dollars! Our host, Warren, is really nice and welcoming. When I visit In Oakland again, I hope this place will be available :-)
Beautiful oasis in great neighborhood
Having our family in limbo between selling one home and being able to move into the new one we purchased hasn’t been easy but landing at Warren’s property settled us all. It was clean, offered the perfect floor plan and provided direct access to an outside garden where we could experience amazing views to bookend our usually crazy days. Warren was super responsive and attentive to our every inquiry and request — and even saved me on my son’s graduation day when I experienced a wardrobe malfunction! Thank you for everything!!!
This is a lovely location. Great view of the bridges and very comfortable and pretty place to stay. Warren is a very nice host.
View and comfort.
We enjoyed our time here tremendously. Warren was a perfect host. Perfect location to go back and forth to Kaiser. Great view. Would come back in a heartbeat!
