About Sharon McMahon

I am a native San Franciscan and have lived in this house for over 20 years. Both my husband and I are in the wine business and work in Sonoma. We have two adult children, entertain often and he plays golf...I read and cook whenever I can!

Sharon McMahon purchased this apartment in 1983

Why Sharon McMahon chose Marina District

This is our 30 year family home. We lived in both units for many years when my children were in school. The house was turned back into two units and after college, both children lived above us until they 'got on their feet.' My son is now the only tennant, but travels the majority of the time.

What makes this apartment unique

Typical 'Marina' flat...10 feet ceilings and lots of beautiful moldings, split bathroom allows the privacy of the shower/bathtub and sink being used while the water closet (toilet only) next to it. We are located in a quiet nook between two of the best neighborhoods in San Francisco and a block away from the gorgeous SF Presidio...PLUS walking distance to the bay where you can watch kite surfing, sailing and large cruise ships enter under the majestic Golden Gate. You may have seen the spectacular scene in the 2013 Americas Cup. (USA won!)

No need to have a car..bus transportation is around the corner. There is an express bus to financial district and the Embarcadero. It would be best to rent car only for the days you want to go out of the city.

Clean and comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean and comfortable. Kitchen was small but efficient and well-stocked. Beds were very comfortable, and there were plenty of linens, towels and pillows. We did have a difficult time with the lock to the apartment when we first arrived, as the upper lock wasn’t funtional. Our one concern was that the front stairway rug had a very musty smell.

Convenient Flat to the Marina and Presidio Area

  • 4 of 5

The location of this flat was ideal for visiting our son in the Marina. With only 3 of us staying in the flat, the layout worked well since there were multiple bedrooms.

Only disappointments were the single shower and bathroom (both separate) and the musty smell upon entering the flat walking up the stairs.

Spotlessly Clean and so very Comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's property was just as it appeared on the website, in fact better in reality. The apartment was spotlessly clean on our arrival, with an abundant supply of linen, crockery, and cutlery, and all other necessary utensils.

My wife and I ( from Brisbane, Australia), our daughter, her partner and our grand daughter(from Berlin, Germany ) were in SanFrancisco for our son's wedding. The layout of Sharon's premises, particularly the separation of bedrooms, ideally suited our situation. Very conveniently located within very short, level walking , distance to Chestnut Street Shops and Cafes and short walk to the famous Bay.

We would gladly stay there on any future trips to this beautiful city.

Thoroughly recommended.

Nice house in San Francisco

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a great location. Room for parents and each boy had own room. Parking was good and close after coming back from sightseeing. Sharon was nice and helpful during our stay. We did notice a smell in the home. It might be a pet smell or pipe issues.

Travelers staying here: Make sure to take photo evidence before leaving

  • 2 of 5

The place was nice enough and my family was comfortable. However, when the trip was over, I was charged $75 dollars out of my deposit for "missing keys and having to replace the door knob" even though I had 100% replaced the keys back in the box. I would suggest travelers take photo evidence of the state of the unit before/after as well as proof of keys in the box to protect themselves from unwarranted charges.

Owner's Response: Sorry you felt that way but I did have to change the locks not the door knob. That entails someone coming out and re keying the door and the master lock. .. it's just for the safety of myself and future . guests . Unfortunately there was only one of two keys returned . I actually split the cost. Again I'm sorry that this happened but it did.

Very conveniently positioned!

Great place in the Marina district. Many great restaurants close by. Also near the bay and the Presidio. Nice to have three comfortable bedrooms and very quiet.

Chrissy Field
Car: not necessary

Our flat is located in the heart of the popular Marina /Cow Hollow District. We are six short blocks from the beach at Chrissy Field and steps away from the Disney-Lucas Campus. You'll be just blocks from Chestnut and Union Streets, a local Mecca for great shopping, a variety of food, super coffee shops, lively bars and entertainment. The Marina has recently become well known for its restaurants and cocktail scene, but the physical beauty of the Marina makes this city iconic. Here you will be staying blocks from the beach, the Marina Green, Chrissy Field, the Golden Gate Bridge and the Palace of Fine Arts. The Presidio is ONLY one block away where you can have quiet beautiful walks through the George Lucas Campus, hike the Ecology Trail through the California Redwoods, or a trail that follows the West Coast, or get a Starbucks and watch the ducks swim in a lovely nearby lake. And if you must leave the city, you are less than one hour to the Sonoma wine country. SF is a crowed city and driving and parking is difficult. No parking is included so its best not to rent a a car
