  • A Relaxing Weekend in Oakland.....

    "In April of this year I was searching for a place to spend 4 days up in the Oakland area to visit my brother. I searched several properties and several websites, until I found Claudine’s house up in the Oakland hills. Claudine lived in the lower part of the house and I only saw her one time when I was there. She was a very helpful landlord and provided lots of information. When we arrived and walking into the house I was blown away how nice it was and how it had everything we needed. I walked into the house and it was very elegantly decorated house, with several nice pieces of art. I will give a word of warning; this house is not for families with small children…. There are so many things that a small child can break. This house is ideal for adults or teenagers. The view from the balcony and living room, on a clear day was incredible. It was a million dollar view, and it beats any hotel I have stayed at in the bay area. Unfortunately, on the 2nd and 3rd day a storm was rolling in and our million dollar view was overcast and foggy. I am glad I had a GPS unit, because the road going up the hill is winding and can be confusing at times. There are several places to eat and shop at the bottom of the hill, and it was a quick drive down to get dinner and groceries. The house had everything we could ever need. The kitchen was fully stocked and all of the appliances were in good working order. The washer and dryer were handy and we used it a few times. The kitchen was cozy and having a morning cup of coffee looking out at the bay was very nice. This was a perfect home base to plan several trips to San Francisco and around Oakland. It was close to a BART station, which make our trip to AT&T Park great.. GO DODGERS…!!!!! I would highly recommend this place."

  • Just as we remembered from our first stay!

    "5 years since our first stay here in Gillians "flat", just as we remembered it, the same warm welcome, clean spacious rooms and of course the spectacular view over SF bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Very comfortable for 2 couples with 2 separate en-suite bedrooms, 2 living rooms, a laundry room, workable kitchen, separate "office space" and off-street safe parking right outside the house. You definitely need a car here because all is uphill, though short distances to nearby food stores, Berkely and the BART-train station into SF. Highly recommended to anyone wanting a relaxing non-hotell stay in the Bay-area. Thanks Gillian, we give you 10 out of 10 and hope to be back for a third visit sometime in the future!

  • Home away from home

    "Really appreciated the welcoming touches such as the banana bread, parking and the short walk to the beach and Trader Joe's. We were on a road trip from Vancouver and the apartment was a lovely home away from home after camping our way to Alameda. Very clean and comfortable; also, I tend to cook to avoid expensive restaurants when travelling with my kids, so I appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. I also felt the area was very safe which was important when travelling with pre-teen and teen girls. We were primarily visiting San Francisco and took the ferry each day which adds up when you are 5, if you are looking to keep down costs, take this into consideration. I felt it was worth it (places in San Fran were much more expensive) and I rather enjoyed the short ferry ride at the start and finish of our sightseeing days. Thank you so much, Betty! I would happily stay again and recommend to friends."
