About Kathleen Kelly

Owned by widow with two grown children. We moved here when our oldest child was in kindergarten, and our kids went through the local grade and high schools. It's a great neighborhood! I live here most of the year, and only rent this out when I'm traveling. (PS. that picture of me is from a house designed by Gaudi in Barcelona, so don't think that's what you're getting when you check in here!)

Kathleen Kelly purchased this house in 1994

Why Kathleen Kelly chose Glen Highlands

Who doesn't love the San Francisco Bay Area? A little known secret is that the weather is much better in Oakland than in SF, because it is sunnier and warmer, but not hot like in the more suburban areas.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy eating or relaxing in the newly renovated inside rooms or outside on the new patio. Take a walk in the neighborhood and see the views of the Oakland and Berkeley hills, or turn the other direction and see the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.

Very clean & spacious. Well-equipped with everything we needed. Beautiful yards. Quiet neighborhood. 2-Car driveway.

This house worked well for our family group, which included grandparents to kids. There was enough space & sleeping arrangements for everyone.

Kathleen's home is very comfortable, well appointed and fits 8 easily. We enjoyed the outside space and wonderful view, as well as the great kitchen and living room area! The house was perfectly clean and Kathleen was very easy to work with! I will definitely use again!!!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

A number of friends stayed at the house for our graduate school reunion. The house is lovely, very well equipped and very clean. The deck with the view and yard are so relaxing. The house is near BART in Rockridge and convenient to shops. We had a wonderful time there. And the host was more than accommodating. We had a great time.

Beautiful home, in a peaceful neighborhood-perfect for family getaways

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen was so accessible and communicative through the whole process, and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to book a stay in her home for our bridal party over the weekend of our wedding in Piedmont. It was a lovely space, with the outside areas being as cozy as inside.

We highly recommend working with Kathleen and enjoying this beautiful part of Oakland!

We LOVED our stay in this home!! Will never stay anywhere else!!

  • 5 of 5

We (a group of 8 women) came to the Bay Area to celebrate my 50th birthday! This home was more than perfect for us! It is a beautiful home with an amazing yard and patio butnis also centrally located to everything we wanted to do!! Kathleen was a wonderful hostess, responded immediately to my inquiries, and even responded to a text asking for dinner suggestions. This

property will most definitely be at the top of my list the next time I am in the Bay Area and looking for a place to stay.
