“Perfect condo in the hills of Berkely with an outstanding view over the San Francisco bay”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Ten days we (from Germany) enjoyed this large and wonderfully furnished condo in a perfect location from where one can go great excursions. We enjoyed the hospitality of Gillian and every day here as if would it have been our home. We were so happy about our descision to book this condo instead of a hotel in SF. So after a long day of many impressions we enjoyed every evening with a californian wine and a great view without or with fog on SF ;-)
By car you can reach downtown of SF in 30 minutes and the SFO airport in about 45 minutes. Or you can use the nearby BART station (subway) in Berkely to go to San Francisco.
If we would be comming back to San Francisco or near that area, this spot would always be our first choice!

“We found the best place to stay”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We spend 6 days in Gillians wonderful house. We arrived really tired and tumbled around from a road trip all over the western states. Arriving was like coming to some kind of heaven. We just walked around in the house with one big smile. The view, the ongoing rooms, the air in the house, the jungle like feeling on the back of the house, the chance for every family member to feel private in separate rooms. The interior decoration, the generosity from the host, the information put in the office. The kitchen, the feeling of being at home that just got to us immediately. Not to speak about the area, Berkeley, the drive up to the house, the people in the street, the little grocery store. We will come back.

“Great for our family group”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Our group of cousins and spouses stayed six days at this spacious flat in the Berkeley Hills during the America’s Cup. We chose the East Bay because we were also visiting other family in the area and wanted to be close by. The flat is ideal for two couples, but it worked really quite well for our group of 6. There are two en-suite bedrooms but there is also a family room with a fold-out couch that has a comfy airbed mattress. Not much privacy in that room, but with a family group it didn’t matter as much. The view from the flat is stunning and we could almost have watched the racing on San Francisco Bay from the deck (with binoculars) if we had chosen to. The kitchen is well equipped for a crowd and there were cereals, condiments and spices for us to use. In addition to the bedrooms, family room and kitchen there is a living room, a large office and a full laundry room. The house is lovely and unique and we really liked the décor. Even though the location is way up on the hill, the Claremont shopping area is not far away, and we enjoyed seeing the deer on the road and driveway. Gillian was wonderful to deal with and gave us good information about local markets and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again the next time we visit our SF family.

Thank you Terry!
It was great to have your group here.
How I wish I'd been out on the bay for the Americas Cup. But as you said the view from the deck sufficed.
Best wishes and return soon.

Thank you Ailien! It was my oversight to not show you how the dishwasher worked. Next time I'll give you a demonstration so that you can use it as much as you'd like to.
