Easy going professional, quiet, and fun! Have a problem? I'll find a solution. Grateful to live and work in Oakland/Montclair, one of the most amazing places ever! Passion for animals (I only have 1 dog somehow), travel, and homes.
Karen purchased this House in 2008

Serene Retreat in Hills above Montclair Village
Spacious and immaculate, with beautiful woodland views from bedroom and great room, both overlooking a large deck. Extremely quiet at night, plus very comfortable king bed. Kitchen/laundry room with fridge, toaster oven, microwave, hot plate (no stove) and utensils but no condiments - fine for quick breakfast(we made eggs every day) or heating up leftovers from many excellent area restaurants. Bath with large full shower and plenty of hot water -we never came close to running out.
TV, phone, and wireless internet all worked well - strong signals and no interruptions or pixellation. The owner Karen lives in the unit above and responded immediately the few times we had questions.
The location is excellent, with easy access to highways 13 and 580 off Mountain Drive, and the cheapest gas in the area. Montclair Village is safe and charming - many small shops and a pleasant street scene.
The roads climbing up from Mountain Drive - Snake and Colton - are very twisty, but are relatively wide, so not too challenging even at night - we found that the locals drive cautiously up here. The walk down from the parking space out front is not bad for seniors with reasonable mobility, but if you can't walk up a flight of stairs without difficulty this place is not for you.
Up, up and away
Karen was very accommodating with our schedule. Unit is the lower level of her home but feels like it’s in the treetops from the expanse of windows in both living room and bedroom. Do plan to arrive in daylight to enjoy view. It’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
With a lovely view of woods. We felt like we were in a treehouse.
we enjoyed our month stay in this lovely home. The owner was very accomindating and helpful with any questions we asked. We look forward to visiting the area again and hope to stay at this location.
California living in the hills
For those seeking connection to the California Hills life style and experience this property is for you. Well appointed with all the features as described, this property lived up to its billing. The one welcomed surprise is that people live like this. Winding roads with outstanding views around every turn made this retreat location a very pleasant experience.
Quiet and peaceful
We had a nice stay. If you are not familiar with this area I would assume it would be difficult to find. The road leading up from the lovely Montclair village is curvey and narrow. So try to not arrive in the dark! Very nice, clean and comfortable space to stay. FYI- There is a large step down from the kitchen and up to to the bathroom so be careful! Karen was a gracious host and responded quickly to questions and needs.
Close to Rockridge and Bart Station, 1/2 hour to SF (no traffic), less than 5 minutes to various hiking trails. Easy access to anything in the SF Bay Area!

The one and only rule I have - please take your shoes off upon entry. My place is super clean, and I'd love to keep it that way~
