Ten days we (from Germany) enjoyed this large and wonderfully furnished condo in a perfect location from where one can go great excursions.

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...

About the neighborhood
A past renter left this description of 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.'

and another: 'Claremont is centrally located which makes this a perfect place to stay if you have a car and want to travel around. We had to go two times to San Jose which was only a 40 minutes’ drive each way, and went back and forth to San Francisco (25 min away). Even Napa Valley seemed close at 1 hr drive on well directed freeways.'
Golf, tennis and boating close by.
