    We had enjoyed while staying in the clean, fresh environment with good accommodation, and cool forest, especially mystic view early in the foggy morning. Thanks for the kind hospitality. 30 August 2016 - 18:00:00

    Lovely, quiet property with an outstanding view and peaceful environment. Karen, and her dog Stella, were friendly and gracious hostesses. It was perfect for my weekend stay. I would caution visitors with health issues that the ability to maneuver 25+ stairs is critical. The bathroom & kitchen had a higher than usual step up which would be difficult for an elderly or disabled guest. Other than that issue, I would definitely recommend this property! 29 August 2016 - 20:54:00

    Karen was very responsive to any inquires I had. She even put a skim milk in the fridge for our coffee. Her house was very clean and comfortable and I would rent again any time I am in that area. 02 October 2017 - 23:29:00

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Karen's rental. She was very available before and during our stay to answer any questions we had. The place itself was clean and comfortable and great for 2 people with plenty of room to spread out. The bed was a king and very comfortable. We slept great every night we were there. The deck is fantastic and we had coffee or wine out there every chance we had. The setting was very pretty and woodsy. We loved seeing deer and turkeys on our drives. Even so, it was a quick and easy drive down to the freeway and main roads. Montclair was a nice little village close by with a grocery store and restaurants. We are regular travelers to the Bay Area and look forward to our next visit. 13 September 2017 - 23:35:00

    Karen was so communicative. She even bought us skim milk for our coffee. The place was large, clean and so comfortable. I would stay there again any time. 05 October 2017 - 16:27:00

    This is a great place if you are looking for some quiet time. Beautiful one bedroom place, the ki g size bed is a major plus. Kitchenette has all essential gear for staging quick breakfasts and sandwich lunches, with a microwave to heat up any leftovers from a y of the great nearby restaurants. The view is wonderful, and the surroundings are very Tahoe lije. 09 November 2017 - 00:36:00

    Karen est selon moi la propritaire idale: discrte et disponible. Elle fournit caf, lait, produits d'hygine et savon lessive, c'est trs pratique. Les instructions pour l'appartement sont claires. L'appartement est bien, le patio est trs priv. Il n'y a pas de rideaux dans les fentres alors c'est un peu clair le matin. 01 December 2017 - 13:47:00

    This was our second stay at Karen's rental, and it is fabulous. The place is very clean and private, which are 2 top priorities for me. It's out of the city, and you can sit on the deck and watch hummingbirds and blue jays. It's a pretty easy drive in to Oakland or wherever you may be going. The neighborhood of Montclair has some nice shops and restaurants. The drive up is hilly but it's worth it. 08 December 2017 - 12:16:00

    We had a nice stay. If you are not familiar with this area I would assume it would be difficult to find. The road leading up from the lovely Montclair village is curvey and narrow. So try to not arrive in the dark! Very nice, clean and comfortable space to stay. FYI- There is a large step down from the kitchen and up to to the bathroom so be careful! Karen was a gracious host and responded quickly to questions and needs. 19 January 2018 - 23:26:00
