About Tina McGurk

I'm an independent consultant and have the luxury of living and working nearly any place. Family circumstances have taken me away from my favorite place in the world - the Oakland Hills - but I come back every chance I get. This home is a reflection of my tastes and my travels and has been created with a great deal of thought and care. When I travel I prefer to stay in homes or apartments over hotels if I possibly can. I've tried to make my home in Oakland an ideal place for a vacation and at the same time be a 'home away from home' for my guests. Everyone who stays here feels that way.

Tina McGurk purchased this house in 1997

Why Tina McGurk chose Oakland

The Oakland Hills is one of the best places to live on the planet! And the close proximity to Montclair Village makes it heavenly. I love walking the trail behind the village, the friendly folks who live and work in Montclair and easy access to anywhere in the Bay Area. The street is a cul-de-sac which makes it quiet and I love my neighbors!

What makes this house unique

Montclair Village is known for its friendly family vibe and it is just a two block walk from my home. There you'll find great coffee shops, boutiques, fabulous restaurants and wonderful walking trails. You'll also have great access to San Francisco buses and the BART station is just five minutes away.

This was a perfect short term rental for our family!

  • 5 of 5
We had been looking for a temporary home for ~2 months while we were waiting to close escrow and finish renovations on our new home in Piedmont. The kids had started school and we needed a nearby location for easy commuting to their school and also to our new home. We found this rental to be the perfect solution. Tina (owner) and Meg (niece of owner that lives in the downstairs unit) were very helpful in getting us situated as we were new to the area. The home was the perfect size for our family of four (our kids shared a room; we used a blow up mattress as a second bed), and it was fully furnished --- down to the first rolls of TP, paper towel and tin foil etc. We cook a lot and we used all her appliances and cook & bakeware and found she had pretty much anything in that kitchen one could need, although the items weren't always necessarily the latest models. The bathrooms were pristine and the garage and driveway provided the parking we required. Our kids also enjoyed Meg's 2 cats --- Amadeus and Thomas Jefferson were often there to greet us when we returned from our day at work/school. The home is also very conveniently located (even more than I thought!) to local supermarkets, pharmacies, dry cleaners, tennis courts, even the Montclair railroad hiking/walking trail, all of which are just a 5-10 minute walk to the Montclair village. The home is also just a 3 minute drive to Route 13 which takes you to Berkeley or south to Hayward etc very quickly. Tina and Meg were very responsive if any issues came up. The photos accurately represent the home. Thank you!

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this place for 2 months while looking for a home in the Bay Area. It was a great spot for us, our dog and 12 month old daughter. Everything was clean, the kitchen was well stocked and even great internet access.

The location is tastefully decorated and easy to live in. The short walk to Montclair Village is fantastic, and actually drove us to buy a house less than 3/4 of a mile away.

Relocating to the Bay Area

  • 5 of 5
At 5 months pregnant, I (and my family) relocated from Washington DC to Oakland CA. It was so nice to settle in to Tina's lovely home while we acclimated to the west coast. Tina's home is within easy walking distance (even for my rappidly expanding body) to the Montclair Village center and has easy access to HW13. There are two large bedrooms upstairs and a very livable family room, dining room, and kitchen downstairs. The front courtyard is beautiful and very relaxing. If you need a home away from home, Tina's lovely house will more than do the trick.

Fine Home for Short Vacation or Extended Stay

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our two week stay at this fine Montclair home, located on a secluded street within easy walking distance to the Montclair shopping area. A Safeway Store and a Lucky Store are located there to satisfy most of your grocery needs and restaurants are plentiful. If you want to visit a fitness center, the shopping area has one, and I found that it was only about a 12 minute expressway drive to the very well equipped downtown Oakland YMCA (don’t try this during rush hour!). The house itself has lots of space with a nice, well equipped kitchen with breakfast area. The upstairs bathroom has a great shower and towels and linens were plentiful. Megan, who lives in the lower level was very helpful in getting us access to the property upon our arrival and in answering any questions we had while we were there. Tina has done an excellent job making sure that the home is well provisioned with all things that travelers need for an extended stay – there was even a tool box!

Charming Home

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this home was a very pleasant experience. We found the home to be in a very beautiful neighborhood, and we felt safe there from the moment we arrived. Everything we needed to make ourselves at home was available to us from kitchen supplies to linen. The views from all the windows were spectacular, including the charming garden we enjoyed looking at while sitting in the kitchen nook. We enjoyed the short walk to Montclair Village where we had breakfast at the Montclair Egg Shop before walking through Sundays Farmers Market. Would definitely consider staying there again in the future! Thanks to Tina and Megan for their help!

Wonderful Montclair Get Away

  • 5 of 5
Tina's home is a lovely place to stay, and it's very warm and comfortable. She has all the amenities, and the place is cozy and very clean. The bed and linens are quite comfortable, and with the wonderful Oakland weather, you are sure to get some great sleep. The location is superb - walking distance to downtown Montclair, and a street of very friendly people. We stayed there for a month while in between homes, but Tina's place would be great for a long term rental or just a few nights. She has it setup great, and she works hard to tailor your experience for what will work for you.

Definitely recommend!
