                        Back for our third time chez Claudine, we were as happy as could be! The view is as stunning as always and the house is so comfortable; Claudine neglects nothing to ensure that her guests are happy. The kitchen is totally equipped and a pleasure to use; the beds are very comfortable, and the whole place is light, airy and spacious. It's easy to get into San Francisco, to the wine country, to Berkeley and to other spots for sightseeing and shopping; all the while returning to a luxuriously appointed "aerie" with one of the best views in the world! We will return.

                        This was the ideal spot for us. It's in a quiet neighborhood, high up in the Oakland Hills with great views looking across the Bay to the East Bay and south. Less than 10 minutes to Rockridge BART station and Berkeley and downtown Oakland. Walnut Creek is 20 minutes away and downtown San Francisco is less than a 1/2 hour if the traffic is flowing. Well equipped kitchen. Spacious and and so comfortable and clean. Claudine is so nice and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Great place to relax, watch the fog roll in and out, and see the day become beautiful. Nice parks nearby too.

                        What a fabulous house - the views are incredible and the space is so comfortable. The kitchen was so easy to work in and the rooms were all perfectly spacious. I'm not sure why other reviewers mentioned being bothered by the owner since we got all the privacy we needed, but she was also available and there whenever we needed!! We will definitely be staying here again if we come to this area again!

                        This was our second stay at Claudine's lovely home up in the hills. As soon as we arrived we felt we were "home again"! We come for several weeks at a time to be near our kids and grandkids in the area, and we simply love this house. It is so well-equipped and comfortably furnished - far more luxurious than our home in the east! Claudine lives downstairs and is the most attentive "landlady"; if anything is amiss - which it rarely is - she's on it immediately, but never intrusive. It was great for us that it's on one level as one of us has problems with stairs. The location is amazing: a view second to none, and a quick zip down the hill to the pretty village of Montclair for groceries and such, and an easy ride to San Francisco either by car or on the BART from Rockridge. Loads of good restaurants in Berkeley and Oakland, as well as SF. But what we loved the best (other than our grandkids) was soaking in the incredible view, either from the living room, bedroom or lovely patio/deck, from sunrise to sunset and beyond. A truly beautiful, relaxing and restful place. We look forward to coming back.

                        I live in the same part of town, but needed overflow space for attendees of a family event. We got the (larger) upstairs unit. It was just perfect for our needs -- very gracious and comfortable; as others have noted, the views are outstanding and the appointments luxurious. My brother, sister, and a spouse loved it. I found Claudine, the owner, to be welcoming, reasonable, conscientious, and a pleasure to deal with in every way. If I have similar requirements in the future, I'll call her first! (Can't coment on kitchen; all the party action was at my place). (It's up in the hills; you'll need a car.)

                        There is at least 1 step at every entry and into the shower. Doors are narrow making wheel chair use very difficult. Owner lied to me about this and cashed our security deposit before we left the property with no communication of an inspection or damage or cost of damage to repair any usual wear and tear. The owner did not tell us that parking was limited and that she AND another family lived in the home limiting us to street parking. Owner entered our space to use washer and dryer. Owner claimed her contract stated no red wine could be consumed per contract after we had been on property for 2 weeks and it is not in the contract and we did not spill any wine . This was a rip off and the owner harassed us frequently.

                        We decided to come to California for 2 months to be close to our children and young grandchildren and Claudine's home was perfect for us in almost every way. The huge living room with its large dining area, comfortable entertainment center, fireplace, and French doors to the lovely little deck, was wonderful. Besides that, the beautiful furnishings and decorations, and the fully equipped, modern kitchen - everything of the highest quality - Claudine herself was solicitous for our comfort and very responsive to any requests or needs we might have. Our stay included Christmas and Claudine's home was a delightful venue for us to host the family for Christmas Eve. (Our little grandchildren had a great time when they came there though in general I'd recommend it more for families with older children.) We loved the proximity to the Skyline parks and lovely walks, the lively little village of Montclair, the easy access to the highways and San Francisco and, of course, the astounding views! It was a joy to watch the sun come over the hills in the morning and the twinkling of city lights below at night. If there were one thing slightly less than perfect, it was the lack of sound-proofing between our part of the house and the downstairs apartment. When that was occupied, we could hear the sound of their voices and they undoubtedly could hear ours. But aside from that it was a lovely experience and we very much hope to return.

                        My husband and I and three grown children spent five days around Thanksgiving 2011 in this property. Another older child and her family live in Piedmont and she was hosting Thanksgiving. We have all previously stayed in hotels while spending holidays in the area. Never again! This house is so comfortable and well appointed that we wholeheartedly look forward to returning. It's spacious, well decorated, and has everything you could possibly want during a stay. The beds and the bedding are luxurious. The showers are divine. The kitchen has every bell and whistle the most accomplished chef could require. But the high point is the view. We watched Oakland and San Francisco appear and disappear in fog and sun over the course of several days. It was mesmerizing. The closest little shopping area-Montclair-is also wonderful. Great shops, restaurants, farmers' market. This is a gem of a rental and we had a fabulous stay there.

                        We had been trying to find a great place to stay while visiting our grandkids and we happened to come across this property. I have to be honest, what a gorgeous home and very clean. We're quite a picky bunch and this place was just perfect, from furniture to the utensils in the kitchen. One thing that really was nice were the bathrooms. We loved the bidet in the bathroom---just perfect. Total class and style all around. The views alone are awesome and spectacular at night. The lights from across the bay are amazing and if you're lucky, you get to see the fog roll into the hills. Coming from the midwest, this was a total treat for all of us. We had family dinners and things just worked out nicely. It was great having the owner live on site down below because we enjoyed our talks with her and she'll help you with anything you need. It's like you're staying at the Four Seasons and let me tell you, it's better---even the towels!!!! If you're thinking of renting a nice place to stay whether it's just two of you or a family, STAY HERE!!!! You won't be disappointed, I promise. Thanks again, we'll be back!!!!!!!!!

                        Last year, I had stayed at this lovely property while I was on my business trip. This time I decided I wanted to come on vacation back to the beautiful bay. I wanted to stay back at this great location since I so fell in love with not only the view but just the presence of the property. I felt like I was at home, it didn't have the usual drab hotel feel. The Owner of the property was very sweet and always helpful. I highly recommend this property to stay at and I will come here again with family and friends. Thank you again for my treasured stay....I love the decor and furniture and how comfortable everything was....my favorite was the Koi pond picture. Not many rentals are of such high class and this one was truly a treasure...
