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 space
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.

Guest access
This property is built into the hillside, so Yes there are plenty of stairs. The "Views" suite level has its own separate entrance/access point. Guests will also have access to the game/workout room which is located two stories above the unit, in the garage (common area).

Other things to note
This is quite possibly the coolest place to stay in the east bay. The pictures need to be updated, but we are constantly upgrading the space and amenities. So, once we have reached another level of achievement, we will post fresh photos.

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.

I work full time for a Northern California craft brewery and spend the rest of my time playing golf, riding bikes, snowboarding and recording music. After years of trying to find the right space to set up a music studio, I finally secured a location to do just that. Valley View Sound Studios was established in October 2012. Since its inception, many award winning projects have been recorded and mixed at our facility and there are many more still to come.

During your stay
After folks see the studio for the first time, shock and fascination quickly set in. I try to make it a point to be there in order to greet guests as they check-in but everything has been detailed in our welcome message so precisely, the guests are in complete control.
The space has many unique and exciting features; combined with the rich history of the space, I often get bombarded with questions and intrigue which I am happy to oblige. Even though I am not always around, trusted friends and family of Valley View Sound Studios can be around to assist, if ever needed.
