Overview

Berkeley House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Beautifully appointed 3BR, 2-1/2 bath luxury vacation home featuring a 60-foot heated swimming pool set amidst gorgeous gardens. An 800-square foot great room opens on three sides to allow easy passage to stunning outdoor spaces perfect for private lounging or easy, sophisticated entertaining. This stunning vacation retreat is surrounded by mature olive, fruit and oak trees and is within easy (5 minute) walking distance to UC Berkeley Campus and the charming shopping and dining neighborhoods of the Claremont and Elmwood Districts. The home lies at the entry of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve with its miles of hiking trails for the outdoor enthusiast.

This beautiful vacation home offers unparalleled opportunity for relaxation and entertaining in an indoor-outdoor setting. The main floor features a huge, airy great room with a 14-foot wooden beam ceiling, a large dining table, wood-burning fireplace, and baby grand piano, and is surrounded on three sides by floor-to ceiling glass doors which open to the surrounding gardens, terraces, pool and spa. The kitchen is fully equipped and features top-of-the line appliances including a Wolf range and Subzero refrigerator. The outdoor dining and lounging terrace features a large outdoor fireplace and grill, large dining table, and ample cushioned seating. The pool and spa area includes reclining lounge chairs and umbrellas for private sunbathing.

The home has three elegant bedrooms each newly furnished with queen-size luxury Kluft mattresses and 600 thread-count Matouk bed linens. The master bedroom has a 36-inch flat panel television with en-suite bathroom with a large tub and shower. The second bedroom has a 48-inch flat panel television and shares a bathroom with a large walk-in shower with bedroom number three. The bathrooms are provided with Frette towels and a selection of fine, organic toiletries. All three bedrooms have breathtaking views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, excellent reading lights, and the house and entire property offer high-speed wireless connectivity.

While the home provides a peaceful oasis for relaxation and entertainment, it is centrally located just a few blocks from the UC Berkely campus, the Greek Theater, and the Cal Memorial football stadium. It is within easy walking distance to the many charming restaurants, shops and cafes of the Claremont and Elmwood Districts. Hikers and joggers can enjoy miles of trails within the adjacent Claremont Regional Preserve or the nearby running track on the UC Campus. The Berkeley Tennis Club and the Claremont Resort are a block away. Yoga studios, climbing gyms, the UC Botanical Gardens, Tilden Park, the Lawrence Hall of Science, the Berkeley Marina and UC's Zellerbach Hall are just a few of the nearby attractions.

The house is ideally located to serve as your base camp while you explore the surrounding region. It provides quick and easy access to all the major freeways and to public transportation. It is a 20 minute drive from downtown San Fransisco, 30 minutes to the Oakland airport, and 45 minutes to the SF airport. The Napa and Sonoma wine country is 1-1/2 hours away.

Paradise in the Berkeley Hills

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful 5 days in this beautiful home in April. Everything was top notch in this property. Weather was amazing so we were able to enjoy the outdoor space, which is great. There were 3 couples on the trip and two daughters were able to spend time with us while we were there..... All loved it. Pool was wonderful along with the hot tub. Many of us wanted to enjoy the property rather than sightseeing....quite a testament considering we were in one of the most amazing areas in the world. Cannot say how great this property is....almost did not want to do this review. Want to keep this a secret! Will certainly be back!

All expectations exceeded

  • 5 of 5

Karen and Mark's rental property is a dream. It is certainly on the high end of the rental scale, but it is worth it.

In short, there was nothing that was lacking. The house provided amenities that one would expect of a world-class resort, as well as many small touches that reflected the thoughtfulness of the owners. Robes in the rooms, a fully stocked kitchen with superb appliances, wonderful bathroom soaps, a great piano, a wide and eclectic library, and so much more. The house is a jewel of interior design, warm, comfortable, elegant, with interesting artwork and sculpture. The location is ideal, with stunning views of the bay and the Golden Gate, as well as proximity (100 feet?) to the trailhead for the Claremont Canyon Preserve (a very steep initial climb, but the views are worth it!). Though the owners' house adjoins the property, our privacy was totally respected. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our stay in this beautiful home. The kitchen was fully stocked, as well as the rest of the house. The owner was very, very helpful with the information that was provided, and very quick responses to emails. We had family members staying in the Claremont Hotel, within walking distance, which made it very convenient. We will definitely book this house again for any future trips to the bay area.

Perfect Home away

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location for a work and play week. Wonderful space to live,be and stay with family and have friends. Well equipped for cooking, fireplace inside and out. Awesome heated pool and hot tub. Bright beautiful space with baby grand piano. We loved our stay. Hiking right across the street, Claremont hotel a few blocks away. We could not ask for more. There was construction noise during our stay which was not the fault of the owner. That was the only downside.

Beautiful, private residence in the hills of Berkeley, CA

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, two level home that appears to be the carriage house of the larger home next door. While occupying the home, the owners graciously provide complete privacy for the enjoyment of a 60' heated lap pool and spa along with a large back yard. The house is well equipped with every imaginable amenity, nicely furnished and immaculately clean. This was our second stay and we would not consider another property when visiting the Berkeley/San Francisco area.

Wonderful in Every Way

  • 5 of 5

Lifelong memories were made here during a wonderful week spent celebrating our daughter's graduation from Cal. Everything, and I do mean everything, is first rate-from the pot we made our morning coffee in to the sheets we gratefully slipped between each night. Privacy, pool, outdoor fireplace - a great way to escape the chaos that is Berkeley on graduation week. We were so grateful to have found this magnificent place on VRBO. Go Bears.
