About Sam Dorrance

Since we live in a vacation destination, we thought offering our house for rent was a nice way to help us do some more traveling.

Absolutely Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

You can't find a better place to stay in San Francisco. The house is beautiful and clean with lots of space for everyone and even has a backyard. Perfect for families and business travelers. Beautiful view of the marina and bay, Safeway grocery store less than a block away and great restaurants everywhere. Our co-workers at the conference were jealous they were staying in tiny hotel rooms with a view of the street while we stayed in a 4 bedroom mansion on the water. For those attending a conference the house is a convenient 10 min $10 Uber ride to the Moscone center.

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing, more than enough room for my family of 7! Beds were comfortable and the view cannot be beat. Sam and Cathy were attentive. I think we have now found our vacation home when visiting SF!

Wonderful Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Marina Blvd and everything was as hoped. Easy access to home, clean and spacious. A great base to explore a wonderful city. We even contacted Sam and he happily let us stay a little extra time past check out so we didn't have to rush to meet our flight at 6pm. Much appreciated, prompt contact made overtime. Would thoroughly recommend this stay.

Spacious with all needs catered for. Sam was very helpful and quick to respond to queries. Only area for improvement is TV arrangements, other than that it was perfect. Thanks Sam & Cathy.

Very spacious home with many amenities and an awesome location

  • 5 of 5

The home was very easy to locate and was conveniently located (even within walking distance) to many attractions. The view from the house was great. The house is very large and has plenty of room for a single family that wants to spread out, or for multiple couples or 2 families to vacation together. The kitchen was very spacious and had everything we needed, including a high chair. The back yard area was very lovely and private and unexpected. A few items to note.... The beds (except for the one on the newly rennovated top floor) were not very comfortable (but that could be a personal preference issue); and the television in the main living space could use updating (although since the weather cooperated we really didn't spend much time watching television). Overall I give this property 5 stars because the owners were extremely responsive to our emails, they were prompt with the security deposit refund, and the house met all of our needs and was exactly as described/pictured.
