Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 7 - 14 nights


About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Take this opportunity to spend a week to several months in a beautiful one bedroom flat in our comfortable mid-century home in the Berkeley Hills. With 1400 sq ft and an open plan of living, dining and kitchen, all looks out to a view of the bay, the hills, San Francisco and Oakland. The bedroom suite is tucked behind with a hot tub deck. All is on one level, several steps off the street.

We are conveniently located half-way between Tilden Park, the Gourmet Ghetto and UC Berkeley/downtown. There is easy access by foot or bus and BART. Several walkways between streets will help you get down quickly to the bus on Euclid and the Vine-Shattuck gourmet shopping and eating.

This flat would be ideal for a couple who would enjoy the quiet, verdant setting with the opportunity for indoor-outdoor living . There is a large deck off the living space which gets morning and afternoon light and another more private deck with a hot tub off the bedroom. You will find quality appliances and furnishings to make your stay as pleasant and convenient as possible.

Book a long or short term rental now to enjoy the mild temperatures and gorgeous Bay Area setting with many potential excursions to natural wonders such as Lake Tahoe, Yosemite National Park, Mt Lassen or Shasta, as well as closer attractions such as Napa Valley, Monterey Bay, Mendocino or Pebble Beach.

About The Owner

My husband and I are retired and interested in traveling and volunteering in other countries. We have raised our family here but now find that we have the ability to wander farther afield. We use the house when we are in Berkeley visiting our children and grandchildren

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1999

Why The Owner chose Berkeley Hills

We chose to buy and live in the San Francisco Bay Area for its diversity of geography, people, theater, art and music. We have loved living in Berkeley for the past 30 years. We offer part of our home so others may enjoy the temperate climate and wonderful opportunities to explore California from this unique location.

What makes this apartment unique

It is a quiet here, above the city, but within walking distance to many fine restaurants and shops as well as public transportation to San Francisco and beyond. We also love the southwest orientation of the house allowing us to enjoy the sun as it rises and sets with glorious views. Halfway up the hill between Tilden Park and the commercial area we enjoy great views, sunsets and walks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have had a terrific stay at the flat. It is simply perfect, and we have absolutely no complaints. We are already talking about next year and considering a longer stay perhaps. Of course the fabulous weather we've had has made it even more appealing. Reading on the deck, looking at that spectacular bay view, breathing in the intoxicating scents of so many exotic plants, and walking the delightful neighborhoods have been wonderful, not to mention the proximity to Tilden, Redwood, and Pt. Pinole parks. Julian talked about Briones, which we're actually planning to hike in today. The kitchen is wonderfully supplied with plenty of utensils and dishes and even spices. You have a real gem here!

Berkeley Hills Flat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Liz's beautiful home for nine days and did not want to leave! The home is exactly like the pictures, only I don't think the pictures give this property justice. We did rent a car which I think is helpful for this location. The view from the living room can't be beaten! Don't miss going to Rick and Ann's for breakfast - it was delicious. We will definitely return! Thank you, Liz!

This was our ninth annual Thanksgiving week stay. We plan to return next year! The description is 100% honest. Good to have a car, but Uber works well.

This was our second stay on Cragmont. We love it. The light, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bed and convenient location make this a great choice. We hope to return again.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

At once when we opened the door we loved Liz's apartment. It is spacious, clean, well decorated with a great taste and has everything what one may need. The view is absolutely amazing and beautiful terrace and tub are huge bonuses. Liz was always easy reachable if we need something. Hope to stay again!

Great home! Can't wait to return

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place, beautiful house with great views.

Very inviting and easy to use. All the amenities one could ask for.

The deck was our favorite place to sit and watch the fog roll into the mountain.

Liz was very helpful and easy to contact if needed.

Thanks for sharing such a lovely home!
