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.

Sam Dorrance purchased this house in 2005

Why Sam Dorrance chose San Francisco

The single family home is situated 1 block from Safeway and Starbucks. Across the street is Fort Mason home to Greens restaurant, Off the grid trucks (Friday nights) and a farmers market Sundays. Fisherman's wharf, Pier 39,Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Yacht Club, St. Francis Yacht Club and the Palace of Fine Arts are all within walking distance as are nearby Chestnut and Union streets shops and restaurants. Bikes can be rented across the street (Blazing Saddles). The No. 28 bus can be caught outside Safeway enabling easy access to the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden gate Park. The No.30 bus can be caught nearby to go down town to Union Square and Fisherman's Wharf. There are playgrounds nearby for toddlers and younger children. Off street parking is provided.

Lovely home in Marina District

  • 5 of 5

While visiting San Francisco for a conference at the Moscone Center we decided to stay at this beautiful home. It's located right in the middle of the Marina district, near several enjoyable parks with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. There is a Safeway located a block away and both Ghiradelli Square and Chestnut street restaurants are an easy walk. Everthing about the house exceeded our expectations, from the newly renovated kitchen to the amazing hidden back yard. You can't go wrong with this property!

Comfortable, GREAT LOCATION! Spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at 123 Marina Blvd. the space was perfect for our family, with everyone having their own space, but plenty of gathering space as well. Kitchen is modern and easy to use. Have everything you need. Location and view breathtaking. We walked and biked a good deal, in the city- plus drive to Wine Country and Muir Woods which were just across the bridge.

We loved the marina house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay on the marina. We all enjoyed the incredible view of ships, bicycles and birds passing by the front windows. We loved being 'home' almost as much as being out in San Francisco! The house was perfect for us as our two grown children traveled with us. We each had our own floor of the house and shared the living areas. It was great having a kitchen to prepare simple breakfasts and lunches or to heat up restaurant leftovers. The house was clean, well equipped and had everything we needed, even a parking space! The location was great - It was so close to Safeway and Starbucks and we walked up to Chestnut and Avila to restaurants a couple times. While we had rented a car, we walked to the tourist attractions toward Pier 39 or would take Uber if we didn't feel like any more walking. We mostly used our car for more distant adventures like Muir Woods. Driving and parking in the city were not fun.

The things we think need improvement are the TVs. It would be nice to kick back and watch a movie after a big day of being a tourist. There were TVs but no movie options really.

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.
