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.

Exceptional property with amazing views and location!

  • 5 of 5

Came to SF with family to participate in the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon and to enjoy the city. The location right across from Marina Green was less than 1/2 mile from transition. Just a mile or so from Fisherman's Wharf and walking distance to many fine restaurants. Having Safeway and Starbucks right next door was very convenient. We enjoyed the living area with its panoramic view and the kitchen was perfect for cooking. Highly recommend this property, would definitely stay here again.

Everything we could have hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for myself and family, two sons and wives and three grandchildren. The location couldn't be better, across the street from the grassy area on the Marina, walk to Pier 39, Safeway, restaurants and for the joggers, run to the Golden Gate bridge and Presidio. The house was exactly as described, if not better, room for us to spread out with each family having some privacy. The stairs might be an issue for some small children, but our five and three year olds did fine. They even had some children's toys and books. Sam was great to work with, quickly responded to emails prior to arrival and a phone call during the stay. The property had listed a BBQ and we had planned a meal around that, but there was no BBQ. I called Sam late in the afternoon and he delivered a BBQ the next morning. There is only one parking place in the driveway, but we had no problem finding street parking at night. I would recommend this property to families or several couples.

The home was lovely and fitted our needs top a tee.

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 50th anniversary with our children in San Francisco and the wine country. The house on Marina Blvd was perfect. The location looking out on the bay, Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge was spectacular. The home is beautiful and has all the utensils and TV and WiFi and Linens and parking that one could want for a wonderful stay. It was convenient to Fisherman's Wharf and to transportation downtown. We had a wonderful stay and hope to return soon for more of the area.

Excellent Waterfront Views, Parking & Convience!!

  • 4 of 5

My family had the wonderful opportunity to stay in this beautiful home in lieu of a hotel for my son's wedding. We had a few minor issues with the home that I'm sure Sam & Cathy have already taken care of (not worth calling during our stay). This house was so conveniently located (walking distance to Safeway) allowing for home cooked meals. Another plus was the driveway parking. It was a little difficult for my 90 yr old mother to climb to the main living level but after she made it up, it was perfect. We hope to be able to stay in Sam & Cathy's home on our return trip to San Francisco...We'd like to take advantage of the "Friday Night Food Trucks" at Fort Mason. Thank you so much for such a great rental. CLow

Homely and comfy in a great spot

  • 4 of 5

Access and communication with Sam and Cathy were easy. We loved being straight onto the Marina and Fort Mason. You cannot get tired of the view out of the massive picture window in the lounge. The house has 4 proper adult rooms of good dimensions, 2 of which are Masters: one has the top floor, the other has the garden floor. The house is comfortable, spacious and well appointed with a good kitchen. The TV has a good cable system but the set itself is ancient with poor picture. The garden is small and there is no deck but the Marina is in front of the house so plenty of outdoor options and great walks. The main floor wraps itself around a small patio. This adds light and greenery to the receptions as well as providing a pleasant space for smokers. We had some minor issues which were addressed promptly and efficiently. There is a Safeway and a Starbucks 100yards away and a very good vegetarian restaurant called Green in Fort Mason, 5 mins walk away. It's a 10 mins stroll to Chestnut street for shops and restaurants, etc.
