Breathtaking Bay Area Views in Berkeley Hills Next to Tilden Park

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,000 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

Seated at the top of Berkeley Hills, this flat is the first floor of a private house that overlooks the entire Bay Area. From the Golden Gate Bridge and the night-lights of San Francisco to the clouds rolling over mountains, the view is not only spectacular, but also different every time you look. Such views can be enjoyed from the living room, the dining room, and the large deck right outside. The deck is equipped with outdoor furniture and built-in wooden bench seats to enjoy the spectacular sunsets.

Both bedrooms are spacious and have queen size beds and large closets. There is a full sized kitchen equipped with a stove, oven, full-size fridge, new microwave, and new dishwasher. The newly renovated bathroom has a shower tub combination along with a toilet and vanity sink. When the sun has gone down and the lights are shimmering in the background, the 43-inch plasma TV in the living room---with recently redone floors---is perfect for a family movie night.

A 2-minute drive away is Tilden Regional Park: a great destination for hiking, cycling and golfing. The Brazilian room is half a mile away and Lake Anza is a mile from the property. With a bus stop right below, you can take it or drive to Solano Ave or North Berkeley’s Gourmet Ghetto, where you can enjoy shopping and dining. The surrounding areas have a high number of fine eating establishments such as Crepevine, Chez Panisse, and Philz Coffee. There are plenty of cafes, bakeries, galleries, and other shops to visit too.

U.C. Berkeley is 3 miles away and offers a beautiful campus and botanical garden. Grizzly Peak Boulevard is a scenic drive to the highway. San Francisco, Sausalito, and Napa Valley are less an hour drive away.

The door is at the side of the house and has many stairs leading to it, but the view is worth the effort. This is not the right rental for those who cannot walk up and down stairs. Street parking is available in front of the stairs entrance and down the street.

What makes this apartment unique

This home has a magnificent panoramic view of San Francisco and the Bay Area. When looking out the windows or from the deck, one experiences feelings of peace, serenity, and awe. The view really cannot grow old as it is different every time one looks.

Very nice view in a quiet part of Berkley

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a conference, so we didn't spend too much time at the rental, but it was very nicely situated. It was also pretty big for the price.

Great views, quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this property. When the weather is clear, the views are fantastic. Beds were comfy, and having a full kitchen is always nice. The living area is a little short on seating, but if you have a small group it works fine. It's really quiet on this street, without any security, traffic or congestion concerns. Plenty of room to park on the street. It only takes 6 or 7 minutes to make your way down the hill into Berkeley.

Couldn't ask for better views

  • 4 of 5

The views from this place truly are spectacular. It is near the top of the Berkeley Hills, looking down on the entire Bay area. You can see from the Bay Bridge to the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island and so on. The beds were comfortable and the place was larger than expected. As other reviewers mentioned, there are A LOT of stairs - over 50 of them.

Beautiful view, clean neat house. Was 3 minutes away from wedding at the Brazilian Room in Tilden P

  • 5 of 5

Property is as advertised. I think the stairs need to be emphasized. If possible it would be great to park in the garage. Otherwise beautiful place.
