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

Lovely views, clean and comfortable hillside retreat
Great value. Lovely hilly community with a cute little village at the bottom, restaurants and shops. The property is well kept, clean and roomy. Karen provided us with all the necessities to make our stay comfortable..water bottles in the fridge, coffee , soap and shampoos in the bathroom. There's a huge family room with a cozy sectional to watch tv. The bed was very comfortable. The views are wonderful.
No big complaints. They do need to put up curtains to block out early morning light in the bedroom, and she was receptive to our suggestion.
The owner lives on the floor above, so if you are very sensitive to creaky floors and hearing the occasional conversation happening above you, it may deter you from this property. Apart from that, it was VERY pleasant, very clean and comfy!
Lovely stay in Oakland Hills
My wife and I visited for a wedding in the area. We had a lovely stay.
Spacious and comfortable.
Karen's rental is in a very nice area, Montclair, Oakland, in the hills. Very quiet, with a canyon view. The unit is down an exterior flight of stairs. The kitchen and bathroom are both one step higher than the bedroom and living room, she has positioned night lights for safety. It's very clean.
Karen lives above and is friendly and helpful.
Very quiet and peaceful place with great view. Owner is very helpful and house was clean.
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.
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!
