About Bruno Hartmann

Our family has many, many happy memories with our children and extended family. We live close by and use it as much as possible but always wish we were here more. Magical getaway from city life

Bruno Hartmann purchased this house in 1996

Why Bruno Hartmann chose The Bay Area

This house is close to SF - an hour away - which allows people to get back and forth to SF, Napa; many other highlights of Norcal are within reach. We also love the fact that we can leave our car parked the entire time we're here as everything is within walking distance

What makes this house unique

There are few properties this large this close to beach which allows us to have all our family and friends in one location. Its has large communal spaces for gathering friends and family.

Magical Break

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful 4 nights we had staying here with the family. The house was beautiful and everything my family could of asked for. The house was spotless upon arrival and had everything we needed. I loved the large kitchen that had everything we needed spices and all for prepping great family meals. Living room was spacious with an open fire that was perfect for those chilly nights by the coast. Backyard had a great hot tub that the kids loved. Location couldn't of been better. The beach is a short stroll down the road. The local grocery store, Smiley's pub and Coast Cafe a short stroll in the other direction. Our first family vacation visit to bolinas and certainly not our last. We can't wait to return :)

FILTHY and rundown

  • 2 of 5

This was the second time staying here.... unfortunately, we found the house not clean, I mean, dirty dishes, dirty sheets, dirty bathrooms, dirty everything. This house could be wonderful with proper cleaning and maintenance.

We won't stay here anymore :(

Owner's Response: this person broke several of our doors and lamps and then refused to pay...when I persisted, I guess this review is her payback.

As many other reviewers noted, great large home with lots of character and ammenities. Many different spaces in the home to comfortably host large family gathering and great common spaces as well. Loved the proximity to beach and 'down town'. Overall, great find-- hope to come again soon.

Great gathering house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a large group of friends and loved the spacious areas, all the character and colors of the different bedrooms and the great front porch and backyard with the huge hot tub. Super close to the beach and to Smileys! We will stay here again!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 2 families and a gaggle of kids...huge kitchen and we could all sit comfortably around the dinner table. Easy walk to beach. Great fireplace with lots of wood. Very clean. Loved the connected stereo to all the main rooms! Best location in Bolinas for sure.
