    Views, Charm, and History - The Tolman House



    One bedroom apartment in a historic 1924 home situated in the beautiful Berkeley hills. This flat is newly renovated and includes a full kitchen, completely equipped with granite counter tops, microwave, stove, refrigerator and dishwasher. The bed …


      This is really great. We stayed here for 10 days with our 3 yr old daughter, and we all loved it. The apartment is very nice (with a nice fireplace – you don't see it on the pictures) and the view from the balcony is awesome. It is so nice to have breakfast outside in the morning. And at night it is so wonderful to see the lights of Berkeley and San Francisco as well as the lights of the starting and landing airplanes of SFO airport (for those who do not know the region: don't worry SFO is so far away that you hear nothing, you just see flying lights at night). This is so relaxing, perfect to make every kid quiet and peaceful and fall asleep while watching this :-) The wonderful apartment is well equipped and located very nice in the Berkeley hills. Grocery stores and drugstores (CVS, Walgreens, Safeways and Andronicos) are just a short drive away down the hill where you also find Berkeley's Gourmet Ghetto (Shattuck Ave). Berkeley Campus as well as the Euclid Ave (with La Val's Pizza, Nefeli Cafe – best Espresso in town – and more) is in walking distance (use the Le Roy Steps – a shortcut connecting Hilgard and Le Roy). There are stairs from the house's street down to a school with a nice playground. Rose Garden & Codornices Park – with a great playground – are also nearby: you could walk north/west, up the hill (approx. 15 minutes) or go two minutes by car. Awseome Tilden Park and Lake Anza are in short driving distance. Susan and Greg (the owners) are wonderful hosts. They always respect your privacy and leave you alone, but if you need something they are there to help or chat if you want. They make you feel like staying with friends. We had such a great time there.
      I recently stayed for two nights in the apartment at Suzie's and have nothing but positive things to say. The apartment is beautiful and the view is an added bonus. She was extremely accommodating in helping coordinate my arrival and even offered to pick me up at the BART! She also left fresh ground coffee and milk for the mornings and offered to leave an English muffin. A friend and myself stayed there and it fit us perfectly. A queen and a pull out couch and two full baths. Lastly, we were headed to Berkeley's Haas campus and it was a very quick and convenient walk (though a hilly one). Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

      I own the building, it has two apartments and a retail store. the other apartment is occupied by a retired school teacher and his wife, they both take care of my apartment for me, so just knock on their door if you should need anything during your stay.

      If you are here on business, there is an Express bus to downtown right outside my front door. If you are visiting as a tourist and wish to feel the real San Francisco, then my apartment is the logical place, do not get ripped off in the high priced tourist restaurants, eat where the locals eat, there are many Ethnic restaurants within a few blocks, have a beer at some of the best neighborhood bars in the city.

      The neighborhood: Richmond/SeaCliff
      The Richmond/Seacliff neighborhood has world-class recreation, You are within walking distance of 3 fantastic beaches, Ocean beach, China beach or Baker beach.

      Golden Gate Park is only 5 blocks from the apartment. You also have a municipal golf course, Lincoln Park Golf , it is a short 6 blocks from the apartment.

      Sea Cliff is dominated by Spanish architecture homes perched on the cliffs east of Golden Gate Bridge. Certainly one of the most desirable and picturesque residential areas in the U.S. Success exudes itself from any of houses, stars and theatrical types such as Robin Williams, Sharon Stone, and Carol Hayes of Hayes Productions all have homes here. The Presidio Trust sits to its east with remains of the Land's End Park and the famous Sutro Baths of 1896 to the west. The California Palace of the Legion of Honor museum built in 1924 ( inspired by the Palais de la Legion in Paris), home of Rodin's "The Thinker", and the public golf course of Lincoln Park all share the Sea Cliff address!"
      Lincoln Park: Most people know Lincoln Park for two things: The Palace of the Legion of Honor and the golf course. Fewer know about the park's easy access to Land's End and a portion of the Coastal Trail that runs about six miles along the bluff above the sea, from Baker Beach to Ocean Beach. Walkers along this path will be treated with incredible views.

      Golden Gate Park:
      The California Academy of Sciences Its fantastic, you have to go.
      You simply must rent a boat in Stow Lake or explore the park by bike. Stow Lake Bike & Boat Rentals, 50 Stow Lake Dr.
      M.H. de Young Museum.

      You have all this right outside your front door and are only 15 minutes to downtown Union Square.

      Muni Bus system:
      If you intend to ride the cable cars, then it is cheaper to buy a bus pass, the fare on the 38 bus downtown is $2.00 and the cable cars are $6 so its better value to get a bus pass. The passes are for consecutive days.

      Passports may be purchased on the Muni website or at the Airport, SFO Information Booth (Baggage Claim area)

      For more information on Muni Passports, call Muni's website.
      1-day Passport $14
      3-day Passport $22
      7-day Passport $28

      The cheapest way to get to the apartment from SFO is a door to door Super Shuttle, it costs $18 per person one way, if there are 3 or more people then a Taxi is cheaper, about $40. You do not really need a rental car, except if you wish to see the Wine Country, I would suggest that you rent a car the last 2 days of your vacation, there is a Hertz location a few blocks away, pick the car up at the local Hertz and drop it back to the Airport, that way you save on a shuttle to the airport.

      ZIPCARS: There is a Zip Car location one block from the apartment, they rent cars by the hour and by the day, please visit the ZIPCAR website for more information.
