“Hillside Retreat is a wonderful place to stay in the Bay Area!”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2014

This flat is very beautiful, charming and comfortable. The simple, open design make it very peaceful and inviting. The photos really don't do it justice. The owner was friendly, warm and helpful, but we definitely had the feeling of our own space. The view of San Francisco and area is incredible. We enjoyed taking walks in the (hilly) neighborhood. Taking BART into San Francisco was easy, and it felt great to be able to return the serenity of this lovely flat. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area, but we also enjoyed eating "at home". With our next visit we hope to stay longer, have more San Francisco outings, and explore the Berkeley/Oakland area as well.

Response from the owner Thank you! It was a pleasure to have you here.

“Wonderful: view, interior design, neighborhood . . . love it”

Wonderful: view, interior design, neighborhood . . . love it. Just wish the high-quality dish-washer was hooked-up. Other than that, everything was perfect.

Response from the owner 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.

“Perfect Company Retreat Location”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2012

I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days with 8 others. The apartment was immaculate and very spacious. The view of the bay area is phenomenal and the host was extremely helpful to everybody staying. I would highly recommend this apartment for anybody (as long as you plan to rent a car) as it really is a wonderful and quiet getaway as well a being extremely close to downtown Berkeley. It is also close to a variety of train stations making the trip to San Francisco an easy one.

Response from the owner It was great to have you and your party here.

Warm welcome. Spacious rooms, cosy living room, well equipped kitchen, great panoramic views from the spacious balcony. Car needed as property lies uphill from the nearest food shops and metro link to the Uni or SF. Good and secure parking facilities on property.

Response from the owner Thank you Jonathan.

“Brilliant - would absolutely go there again!”

Reviewed 12 Apr 2012

Truly wonderful experience. The flat is clean and beautiful with plenty of great books for all ages. Puzzles for the kids. Well equipped kitchen. Amazing views of the bay bridge. We stayed with our three kids aged 9, 12 and 14 and it was no problem. Gillian is really great and took care of everything. There was plenty of notes and information about the area; where to eat, shop etc. We felt that someone had taken the trouble to think of their guests. Thanks Gillian.

Response from the owner Thank you Irzana!

This place is absolutely breathtaking. The views, architecture and decor make you feel like you are in Tuscany, yet only a few minutes from Rockridge, Berkeley, and freeways. This is a very spacious two bedroom, with a great study, and laundry room. Gillian is a very welcoming and friendly landlord. She even welcomed unsolicited visits from our kids, introduced us to other families with kids in the neighborhood, and gave us homemade granola.

Response from the owner Thanks Antonia. Hope all is well with your family. I miss those unsolicited visits!
