LUXURY VACATION HOME WITH HEATED POOL IN CLAREMONT NEIGHBORHOOD

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.

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.

Amazing property, great landlords!

  • 5 of 5
When we first learned this property is a grandmother unit, we were a little bummed since we celebrating my girlfriends birthday weekend there. Turns out it couldn't have been better, the landlords made sure we had privacy during our entire stay. It never felt like we staying in a grandmother/pool house. When we arrived a treat basket was out on the table, and and instruction booklet was out which ensured we never had to bother the landlords with any questions about the house. We intend on using this property the next time we visit the bay and i highly recommend it to all...

Best of Berkeley

  • 5 of 5
This is a stunning property, beautifully designed. Every detail reflects care, esthetic sensibility, and attention to detail. We were welcomed by the fragrance of gardenias in a little ceramic bowl, and a basket filled with gourmet treats. The kitchen is well-appointed, with lots of organized utensils, and place settings for at least 18. The living space somehow felt cozy when we were four, but could graciously handle a larger group. The beautiful dark-tiled pool, plenty long for laps, also has a hot tub with strong jets. The piano is a tuned Yamaha (though sheet music was limited---we sang Christmas carols in April:) Bedrooms lovely, with luxurious linens, details like magnifying mirrors. A great hike up Claremont Canyon is literally out the back door, and the Claremont Hotel a few blocks away has great food on an outdoor terrace with spectacular views. The property is very clean and well-maintained, and the owners were helpful when we had a little problem with the oven (which was easily solved.) We would love to return to this spot.

Great Property!

The home was perfectly represented on the website. Upon arrival there was a gift basket of food and wine. The house was clean and very inviting. Instructions for operation of the various features were complete and precise. We have booked the home again for our next visit.

idyllic sanctuary with easy access

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely slice of heaven! Beautifully appointed with the finest linens and furnishings, and still utterly comfortable. The gardens and pool create the perfect retreat. And with such proximity to SF, the wonders of the East Bay, and even Napa you'll never be at a loss for adventure.
