EXCELLENT BAY AREA HOME - COME ONCE, COME ALWAYS!

  • 5 of 5
Wow...for lack of better words is how I feel after one month stay at Claudine's "home away from home". I rented the unit for my parents who were concluding their vacation tour in the US. Being their first visit to the US, I wanted a very beautiful home for them. My parents wanted to be away from downtown hustle and bustle and so Claudine's home was everything they'd asked for.

Claudine's absolute graciousness and warmheartedness made their stay a memorable one. Claudine's hospitality prowess is not only for business sakes, but it is truly who she is: She would check up on her guests all day long, to ensure they are very satisfied and got everything they needed. The unit is clean and fresh. Complimentary fresh flowers, apples and tomatoes on site makes the place divine.

Very seldom do you feel welcomed in a guest house - not even hotels! Claudine's "home away from home" is like your "own home" because everywhere you turned in the house is made to make you relax and stay put!

There was absolutely no issues all through the duration of my parents stay. They were very pleased with the home and the warmth of Claudine. They will be returning to the US on summer holidays next year and have already started making arrangements to secure this home during their visit. How often do you get satisfied customers feel extremely happy over staying away from home? Well, here I am!

Thank you so much for being so free spirited, kind, motherly and professional during the course of my parents visit. You are an amazing woman and God bless you real good!

GREAT RELAXING STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent four nights here and wished we were staying longer. Nice, clean apartment with contemporary features. Gorgeous, multi-level patio space with fountain and view of the bay. Plenty of pillows and blankets, two hanging closets plus a closet of cubbies, washer and dryer in the unit, ample parking options, kitchen looks new and has everything you need. Claudine also had fresh fruit and flowers waiting. Maps and restaurant guides were provided. The neighborhood is quiet with a charming village (Montclair) at the bottom of the hill with restaurants, two groceries and drug stores. Short drive into Rockridge and Temescal sections of Oakland with many great restaurants. We will definitely try to stay here next time we're in town, hopefully with more time for relaxing and enjoying the unit.

HIDDEN HAZARD

  • 4 of 5
This rental should post a warning sign, "this is a downstairs part of another rental unit. You may experience noises and discomfort caused by the heating system which is controlled by the upstairs unit". We did not know the existence of a upstairs unit until 2 weeks into our 2-month stay (1/13-3/13). I started having a sleeping problem because of stuffed nose & coughing during the nights when the heating was on but OK when I was outside the house in the daytime. Claudine was trying hard but she cannot disallow the upstairs renters to use the furnace which is located near our living area. We had a little gas fireplace with which we could control the heating without the central system.
When we arrived, the Wi-Fi was working intermittently. Claudine was able to get the problem fixed within a week.

Owner's Response: I have corrected this since it was an issue for Claire and the upstairs and downstairs heating and air systems are no longer connected. I have also taken extensive measures to dampen noise from the upstairs unit as advised by a sound-proofing expert. A half-inch Serenity Mat was installed and this has eliminated 92% of noise transfer. I am so sorry Claire had some sort of reaction to this. Fortunately I have never had another complaint before or after. I did offer to refund money to her, but she very graciously declined. My goal is always 100% satisfaction by all my visitors!!

WONDERFUL WINTER HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented Claudine's 1-BR apartment for most of the winter and spring while we helped our nearby daughter with her new baby and hunted for a new home for ourselves. Everything is homey and comfortable, and if you need anything else, just ask and Claudine will arrange it for you. I wanted an extra table so that I could set up a little art studio. The view of Oakland bay is wonderful, and the gardens are beautifully designed and kept. We both recommend it highly.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented this cottage for 5 days in April to celebrate his birthday and see our grown children that live in the bay area. We were soooo pleased with the place. For just a cottage rental, it was quite roomy and very clean. We even entertained our kids and 2 year old grandson. The views of the bay are wonderful and the weather could not have been better. We spent several afternoons just hanging out on the patio with family. Claudine was very acomodating. There was an issue with the hot water heater ( it happens to us all!!) and she worked diligently to fix the problem quickly, at great expense to herself. Only a few suggestions to offer: a coffee grinder and a better toilet plunger. But, overall, a nice experience and it felt like a home away from home.

COMFORTABLE STAY WITH A TREMENDOUS VIEW

  • 5 of 5
We rented Claudine's 1BR/1BA walkout downstairs unit and found it every bit as pleasant as the larger upstairs unit pictured. Negotiating the steps to the lower level, however, would make it not suitable for someone with mobility problems. The place was clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and furnished with quality linens. The attractive landscaping and patio outside our door was a plus, as was the tremendous view from our windows. Claudine was easy to work with and accomodated our changing plans graciously. The location allowed easy freeway access to reach the many Bay Area attractions, and we especially enjoyed exploring nearby Montclair Village. We will not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family or to stay there again ourselves.
