A little bit of paradise in the Oakland Hills
This little bit of paradise offered everything my husband and I wanted in a holiday rental-- comfort and charm, spacious rooms, a great location, and a magnificent deck with views of the canyon and hills. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay in the Bay Area. Everything about the apartment has been done with care and attentiveness. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed, the bedroom was spacious and comfortable, and there was even a fireplace in the living room. Sitting on the deck at night under the stars watching the lights twinkling in the hills across the valley was truly magical Montclair Village, just down the hill, is a good place for grocery shopping, and there's easy access from Montclair to San Francisco by car or train. After a busy, hectic day in the city, it was delightful to return to the peacefulness of the apartment. The neighborhood, high up in the hills, is wooded and quiet and safe, a real sanctuary from the noise and congestion of the city. An added advantage all for us was how close the apartment is to a series of regional parks with entrances along Skyline Drive. These parks are free of charge and offer miles of amazing trails through redwood groves, along canyons, and over volcanic hillsides. They are marvelous parks, and are literally minutes away from the apartment door! We were so happy to have found this gem in Oakland that we can't wait to go back. It feels like a second home!
