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 Bolinas

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.

Great family home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at the Al Capone house. It was comfortable and our stay was everything we’d hoped it would be. Thank you for sharing with us!

Sweet House Tastefully Appointed but In Need of Repair

  • 3 of 5

There were dozens of small discomforts, but the biggest problem is that the oven does not work. The broken oven presented a more significant problem to our enjoyment of the property than the broken toilet, broken TV, non-functional fireplace, and tub that only ran hot water (necessary to carry buckets of cold water from the kitchen to the bathroom to take a bath). Overall a nice property, but incredibly overpriced considering the lack of amenities. If you plan to make a nice dinner at this large, rustic house, you will have to be very creative.

Owner's Response: ?? We just put in a brand new oven and hot tub installed in April and the hot water works just fine. I never heard from the guest so this review a month later with these complaints is a bit of a surprise. NOTE: TV, fire place and all toilets and brand new oven all work just fine.I am not sure what the goal here is with such inaccurate info! I am extremely surprised by such an inaccurate review

Well suited for our needs.

Good location, quiet and relaxing. Plenty of room for 14 people. Old house with character and modern appliances. Would stay there again.

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.

Great comfortable home for family reunion

  • 4 of 5

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.
