Why marjorie schlenoff chose Marina District
We fell in love with our historic home right on the waterfront of San Francisco Bay as soon as we saw it. Combined with easy access to restaurants, boutiques and recreational facilities, it truly is exceptional.

Fantastic Home and Hosts!
Margie and Larry are wonderful people with a wonderful home. More gracious and generous then you can imagine. We have stayed twice and each time have felt so honored to be able to be a guest in their home. Thank you.
Dear Brad, Holly and family,
Thank you for your kind and warm words and for being the type of guests who make us delighted to share our home.
Please know that we are very happy to have made your acquaintance and have gained friends from Colorado as a result!
Margie and Larry
Once again, another perfect stay at Marjorie and Larry's gorgeous San Francisco Marina home. Clean, pristine, location, views, comfort, amenities, and so much more... all absolutely perfect!! We were blessed with perfect weather and were able to enjoy countless hours on one of our favorite areas - the roof top deck! Stunning. We will be back! Thank you so much for sharing your amazing piece of San Francisco with us.
Kenny and Gina, CJ and Elisabeth (along with Brian and Kristi for one night too!)
Larry and I are deeply touched that you would take the time to write this wonderful review at the time that you and your families are fighting the devastating fires that have engulfed Northern California. It is a testimony to your kindness and care for others...including their homes!
We are honored that we have become friends through this exchange.
It goes without saying that you are always welcome.
Beautiful, spotlessly clean home with tons of character.
Three levels with spectacular views, excellent location, and best of all extremely nice owners. Thank you for being so accommodating and sharing your lovely home with us.
We were delighted to share in the joy of your daughter's wedding in San Francisco, and thank you for being such caring and gracious guests.
Luxurious Home In The Perfect Location
Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. The home is at least of 5- star hotel quality. Artwork, fine furniture, a lovely outdoor patio, and very comfortable beds, make this home a wonderful stay. The location enjoys excellent views of the San Francisco bay, a marina filled with sailboats and yachts, and a park with much local activity. While some street traffic noise is noted, it's worth it to feel part of an active, energetic environment. Owners Margie and Larry are quite generous, provided a warm welcome (with gifts), and were excellent with communication. I would absolutely recommend this home to those of discerning tastes, and those who care to appreciate, and enjoy high end accommodations.
Thank you, Ron and Danielle, for your kind recommendation of our home.
For our part, you were the perfect guests, who cared for our property as though it were your own....what a pleasure!
Please know that you, and your family, would be most welcome to return at any time in the future.
Ultimate Home Away from Home
Margie and Larry are exceptional hosts! Warm and attentive, they definitely want your stay to be perfect and work very hard to achieve that end. By the end of your stay, they will be more than just hosts--they will be friends!
My family from Mississippi stayed here during the Christmas holidays through New Years and as soon as they arrived--they felt instantly at home. The house is absolutely gorgeous and could not be in a more perfect location. Close to the Marina, Golden Gate Bridge, and the Palace of Fine Arts, there are endless possibilities for walking adventures. And with Chestnut Street just a few blocks away, shopping/dining opportunities abound. The views are unbelievable and you could certainly spend an entire day by the window just watching the world go by. My family cooks a lot and the kitchen was just perfect for preparing meals and the dining room easily hosts dinner for 10 or 12. The upstairs deck and balconies offer some of the best views in San Francisco and as my mother said about Alcatraz "I can almost touch it!" The bedrooms are all very comfortable, clean and rival any luxury hotel. The living room is a great spot of groups to settle in and chat after a nice meal! As a resident of San Francisco, I am truly envious of Margie's washer/dryer--makes quick work of any laundry you may have during your stay!!
There are not enough good adjectives to properly describe what a great experience you will have as a guest in Margie and Larry's home. Traveling is often work in itself and having a landing/launching pad such as this will help you relax, renew and revive so you can set off on your own amazing journey in San Francisco!!! Thanks again Margie and Larry!!! The Biloxi Crew will surely be back again!
Memorable Thanksgiving in the Marina District
Our family enjoyed a Thanksgiving to remember at Larry and Margie's extraordinary home in the Marina district. The location is excellent-- we walked everywhere along the waterfront, up to Chestnut Street, through the Palace of Fine Arts, the Presidio, and even down to Fisherman's Wharf. At night, the Palace of Fine Arts is lit up and makes a stunning backdrop for the upper stories of the house, and during the day, you can see the Golden Gate Bridge to the front. We felt safe and at home in the neighborhood, were greeted by a few neighbors, and enjoyed people-watching from the window of the sitting room.
The house is close to many restaurants as well as the grocery store, and the kitchen is well-stocked for those who enjoy cooking (and wine!). Plenty of burner and oven space on the large Viking stove made Thanksgiving preparation easy. Margie has a treasury of beautiful ceramics which made every dish look special.
The home itself is full of original artwork and charming areas to relax. The rooftop deck was a particular favourite of ours!
We had a few additional guests on Thanksgiving Day, and parking was refreshingly easy - there is room in garage and driveway, also across street along the waterfront.
Thanks for a memorable stay.
The Yelverton family
Thank you for your kind review of our home!
We were delighted to have your family share your Thanksgiving, with the memories that I hope you will have for many years to come.
You were perfect guests in every way and we would be honored to have you return at any time.
Again, warmest thanks!
Our home is located directly across from the finest recreation area in San Francisco, overlooking the bay and walking distance from the Presidio National Park.
