Beautiful Large Mid-Century Flat with Views

Bedrooms 1
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Take this opportunity to spend a week to several months in a beautiful one bedroom flat in our comfortable mid-century home in the Berkeley Hills. With 1400 sq ft and an open plan of living, dining and kitchen, all looks out to a view of the bay, the hills, San Francisco and Oakland. The bedroom suite is tucked behind with a hot tub deck. All is on one level, several steps off the street.

We are conveniently located half-way between Tilden Park, the Gourmet Ghetto and UC Berkeley/downtown. There is easy access by foot or bus and BART. Several walkways between streets will help you get down quickly to the bus on Euclid and the Vine-Shattuck gourmet shopping and eating.

This flat would be ideal for a couple who would enjoy the quiet, verdant setting with the opportunity for indoor-outdoor living . There is a large deck off the living space which gets morning and afternoon light and another more private deck with a hot tub off the bedroom. You will find quality appliances and furnishings to make your stay as pleasant and convenient as possible.

Book a long or short term rental now to enjoy the mild temperatures and gorgeous Bay Area setting with many potential excursions to natural wonders such as Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Mt Lassen or Shasta, as well as closer attractions such as Napa Valley, Monterey Bay, Mendocino or Pebble Beach.

About The Owner

My husband and I are retired and interested in traveling and volunteering in other countries. We have raised our family here but now find that we have the ability to wander farther afield. Our son,who is a graduate student at CAL, lives on the property and is your host, on our behalf.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose Berkeley

We chose to buy and live in the San Francisco Bay Area for its diversity of geography, people, theater, art and music. We have loved living in Berkeley for the past 30 years. We offer part of our home so others may enjoy the temperate climate and wonderful opportunities to explore California from this unique location.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a quiet here, above the city, but within walking distance to many fine restaurants and shops as well as public transportation to San Francisco and beyond. We also love the southwest orientation of the house allowing us to enjoy the sun as it rises and sets with glorious views. Halfway up the hill between Tilden Park and the commercial area we enjoy great views, sunsets and walks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a terrific stay at the flat. It is simply perfect, and we have absolutely no complaints. We are already talking about next year and considering a longer stay perhaps. Of course the fabulous weather we've had has made it even more appealing. Reading on the deck, looking at that spectacular bay view, breathing in the intoxicating scents of so many exotic plants, and walking the delightful neighborhoods have been wonderful, not to mention the proximity to Tilden, Redwood, and Pt. Pinole parks. Julian talked about Briones, which we're actually planning to hike in today. The kitchen is wonderfully supplied with plenty of utensils and dishes and even spices. You have a real gem here!

Third Visit and Counting

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at the Fulton's flat for 3 years and absolutely love it! It is just right for us with a beautiful spacious living area that makes it perfect for our daughters to visit and have dinner together as we see the sun set over San Francisco Bay. We are so attached to this wonderful flat that we returned from California on Friday night and have already booked our next trip!

Fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay in the Cragmont house as we visit friends & family in Berkeley often and dream of owning a home like this in the hills. Spectacular views of the city, nice outdoor deck, a hot tub & fireplace, all beautifully & comfortably decorated- all for a very reasonable price. Looking forward to our next visit!

Spacious y t so warm and inviting. Outstanding view. Very supportive. Immediately felt at home.

  • 5 of 5

This place is a treasure! Modern with a blend of California comfort and a touch of Asian flare. So spacious inside as well as having a large deck that looks out over Berkeley, the Bay and San Francisco as well as a private outdoor area to enjoy the hot tub. We wanted a place that supported a quiet retreat feeling while being close to stores, restaurants, etc and that is exactly what we got. Liz was very responsive and helpful whenever I contacted her. We have stayed in many places in the Berkeley over the years and this was by far the best. So glad we found it!

Great Flat in a Beautiful Area

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have recently spent a very pleasant 10 days in the comfortable "mid century" flat. The unit has a large living-dining room, a large bed room with ensuite bathroom with stall shower, a large vanity and high quality towels. The kitchen is equipped with top of the line appliances, excellent cooking pots and attractive dishes. A large deck has lounge furniture, a dining area and grill. The small Japanese style patio has an attractive hot tub. The location has complete privacy with a red wood grove to the south side and an expansive view of San Francisco Bay, from the Marin Highland to Oakland. The owner is very responsive to any issue. We plan to return again next year.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were coming home when we got back to your beautiful flat for our second visit to Berkeley this year. It just suits our family so perfectly and the spectacular views never cease to amaze. We are already looking at the calendar for next year and hope you will be renting for many years to come. We are spoiled forever!!!
