Spacious and sophisticated 2 ++ bedroom, 2 bath flat in Berkeley, CA - Available long or short term

Live a quiet and secluded lifestyle, in the hills just minutes from UC or downtown Berkeley. This contemporary building is a one-of-a-kind work of art, with hand plastered walls, limestone kitchen and bathrooms, and open beam ceilings. Beautiful living/dining room and deck with spectacular bay views. As well as two large bedrooms with private baths, this flat features a study and a family room complete with built in bookcases and ample storage. A fully equipped kitchen and laundry room are included too. The 1500 square foot flat is comfortably and eclectically furnished.

Located in the hills above the Claremont Hotel the light filled flat is the entire lower floor of a very private home. There is a separate entrance through a handmade gate.

Some Renter's Comments:
We stayed at the Hillside retreat in July, 2011. We had a wonderful time. From a geographical point, this is an ideal spot: we traveled to San Francisco (20-minutes away), Monterey, Carmel, etc... and enjoyed coming back to this serene place on the hill while escaping the rush of the city. The other thing that we escaped was the Bay weather. We had temperatures that started cool in the morning and became nice and warm during the day. The view from the deck is just phenomenal and perfect to start and end your vacation days. The interior is tastefully and eclectically decorated. We will be back.

If you find yourself lucky enough to have the opportunity to rent this great flat, do not hesitate. The home was perfect for my family of 4 (my wife,two adult children and myself) with everything we needed and more. Comfortable large space, with awesome views of the bay, a wonderful owner who will be certain that you have what you need and answer any questions about the area. You will feel close to everything, but are staying in a very peaceful, private space. From this base, we enjoyed the whole bay area with easy trips down the pacific coast, into the city and north into the forests and wine country. The Berkeley and Oakland areas are minutes away for supplies and many dining and entertainment options. I can't say enough about how nice this place is, and it's a great value considering your other lodging options in the area. Thank you Gillian for sharing your beautiful home with us! If we return to the area, we will certainly rent the Hillside Retreat again.

Out of many self-catering homes I have stayed at, this home is one of the best. The flat is spacious, well designed, comfortable and beautifully decorated. This home is perfect for leisure or for travelers who require a space to work. The view and location truly make this a Hillside Retreat. Its location close to highway 13 makes it easy to access other Bay Area locations, yet it is nestled among the trees and you can find deer sauntering in the semi-private driveway. Furthermore, I cannot say enough wonderful things about the owner who was very accommodating to our needs. My only regret is not having enough time to sit down to read one of the many great books from the home's superb collection. My 6 year old daughter certainly took advantage of the children's games and books in the flat! Thank you very much for a wonderful stay!
