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 San Francisco

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.

Fantastic for our family

  • 4 of 5

We booked a last-minute trip to SF from Michigan so we could join my husband on a business trip. Since we would have our two little boys with us (4 & 6), an apartment where everyone had their own space to sleep sounded more appealing than a hotel - and the price of this beautiful apartment is comparable or less than most of the nicer hotels in the city. This place was fantastic for us - the beds were very comfortable, the location is in a lovely and safe neighborhood, it was quiet, and very clean. It was a little warm and stuffy when we first arrived, but there are fans throughout the apartment, and after I opened the windows it didn't take long at all to circulate air and make the place very comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped. Within short walking distance there are coffee shops, small grocery stores, sandwich and pizza shops. The only difficulty we faced was parking - we had a rental car (so we could visit family in the Napa Valley, and sight-see along the coast) and used a parking garage about a half a mile away on Lombard. It was pricey and we found out the very hard way that it does not open until 7am (NOT GOOD to find out the morning that you need to be at the airport at 6:30)!! All in all, though, we enjoyed our stay thoroughly and would definitely like to return on our next visit to the city.

Loved it! Excellent location and great place.

  • 5 of 5

Great place in a very nice area. Right next to the beautiful Presidio grounds. Public transportation very easily accessible and tons of restaurants really close. Sharon the owner was so helpful and her suggestions on where to eat were great. I would go back to this VRBO in a heartbeat! Clean and spacious rooms were adequate for a family of 5.

A week stay at a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 5 runners that came down to race the North Face endurance Challenge on December 3rd 2016, and stayed at the house for the whole week. It was a perfect place to stay, the house was very clean, the rooms were large, and the location was prime. I had brought my bike, so I could easily get to the bridge and ride the mountains on the other side. There is a deli market on Chesnut street which had everything we needed, and if you are into restaurants, the list is endless. I plan to go back next year to the same event, and hopefully stay at the same place again...

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
