Exquisite hillside retreat, lower-level unit, with a secluded private entrance. It is a 1 bedroom/1 bath unit with a very large bedroom which includes a queen sized bed and extensive closet space. Additionally, one of the sofas in the main sitting area, includes a trundle that pops-up to create a king sized sleeping space or two twin beds. The beds on this sofa/trundle are actual mattresses and are very comfortable. The living space is made even more cozy with a thermostat controlled fireplace to keep you warm as you watch the 40' flat screen television. If desired a DVD player can be included in the room for a small additional fee. The space includes a full sized kitchen with all the amenities, beautifully renovated with granite and marble, and the use of a new washer/dryer unit for your convenience.

Italian tile throughout. Immaculate, spacious, light-filled interiors, with breath-taking views of the San Francisco Bay. Secluded and serene terraces and walkways surround the Italian fountain just outside your private entrance. The location boasts gorgeous, lush, well-maintained, gardens and flowers, including climbing wisteria. Lemon and apple trees grow right outside your door and are available for you to pick and to enjoy. There are two separate patios for you to take in the breathtaking scenery while relaxing and/or dining outside. The unit's size is approximately 1155 sq. ft.

Beautiful guest house in a lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a five-day stay in this spacious and well-located apartment near Montclair Village. Spotlessly clean, well-equipped and supplied. The apartment has a private patio with a spectacular view of San Francisco Bay. Situated in a quiet, lovely neighborhood with easy access to local restaurants and shopping and to East Bay locations and downtown San Francisco. We look forward to our next visit.

My parents stayed in this wonderful apartment for four weeks while they were visiting from Germany. Everything was perfect. Super clean, great views, quiet and Claudine is just amazing! My parents spend a lot of time on the terrace, admiring the view and the abundand wildlife. Their trips to anywhere in the East Bay were very convenient, the highway is only a few minutes away, so is downtown Oakland, Berkeley and even Alameda is only a 20 minute drive. They just told me that they will only stay with Claudine when they are visiting next time!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Your parent's were such a joy, I have such fond memories with them on the terrace. I appreciate how spotless they left the guest house, maybe when I sell my 1961 190SL Mercedes, I can stop by to see them in Germany! It was an absolute delight spending time with such worldly and knowledgeable people, thought I knew a lot until I met them. Can't wait to see them again soon :)

Lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five days recently and it was a beautiful quiet setting. The lanai was a perfect setting for coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening. There were nice restaurants close by and we had everything we needed to prepare meals. We had plenty of room and enjoyed our stay.

Magnificent Montclair

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week late March early April. The apartment was perfect and had absolutely everything we needed and more. Very clean and an awesome comfortable bed! We used public transit to go into SF, 25 minute ride no hassle! Grocery store close by. Claudine is an awesome host. This was a great place for our week exploring the Bay Area! Highly recommend!!

Sweet place in the Oakland hills

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Claudine's apartment in the Oakland hills in early 2014 while visiting our daughter. This is a great location for Oakland area travelers with a car. Starting with the view over the Bay everything is charming. There is lots of room, plenty of sun during most of the day, and everything in the apartment has been thought of, including a laundry. The kitchen is well appointed and ready for any meal (although you need to be prepared to hand wash dishes afterward). There is a nice fireplace and TV area in the living room that is great for sitting when you're not out exploring. It's all very clean and ready to go upon your arrival, and owner Claudine will help out with any questions that you might have.

Finally, the nearby town of Claremont offers everything that you might need--including a great breakfast place--while traveling and staying at the apartment.

Great location, view and home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this wonderful home for a month and truly enjoyed it. The apartment has everything you need, and the view of the bay is beautiful. You are just up the hill from Monclaire village which has lovely restaurants and shopping and a quick ride into the city or other east bay locations. The kitchenette has everything you need, bed is very comfortable and you have a nice large bathroom and shower and the large washer and dryer are right next to the bathroom. It's very clean with all amentities and Claudine ensures you have everything you need. I would absolutely stay there again.
