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.

Wonderful place for the week!

  • 5 of 5

The three bedrooms were roomy and the beds were very comfortable. The location is perfect and you can walk to so many cute places from the front door. We made coffee and relaxed in the family room every morning-our group stayed one week (for Bar Method teacher training) and it was perfect for us! We walked to the studio every morning too. I did get some candles to light because the entrance smelled like a pet had stayed there before us, but it didn't hinder our experience. Sharon was a great hostess-I would highly recommend this space. Thank you so much!!!

Charming and Convenient Condo

  • 4 of 5

Sharon was great to work with. Always pleasant and super responsive. Her condo is situated ideally near presidio (for great walks) and the Marina (for great shopping on Chestnut and Union). I worked down town which was 20 minutes away and cost me between $5-$7 per trip with Uber Pool. It is a top floor apartment in a free standing building. This was important for me as I am a very light sleeper. Although located near a busy junction and great local pub (final final) the double glazing ensured external noise was shut out. If you open the windows you are sure to hear neighbours and traffic (that's inner city living). I did find the noise from below intrusive at times (but critically not during sleeping hours).

The apartment is clean and well appointed. The beds were comfortable and linen great quality. There is no parking or laundry facility. Both can be found locally. The kitchen is small but well appointed. Overall a lovely place, run by a lovely lady. I would stay again.

Find yourself in SF? You will struggle to find a better place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

En route to Colorado for some snow fun, we had the opportunity to stay in SF and were very fortunate to have found this property to stay at. There were five of us (2 adults, 3 kids/teens) and found the apartment spacious, comfortable and convenient. Location wise, we could not have asked for anything better. It was close enough to a lot of key sights to see in SF but it was so quiet and peaceful. So many restaurants, shops, cafes, beaches...

The owner was very responsive and helpful and did as much as possible to make our stay a great one (and succeeded). Definitely one to keep on file for a return visit.

Great flat, great location, great for families!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent almost a week at the property. It was spacious (there were 5 of us including 3 teenagers), and walking distance to the Presidio (one block), all the shops/ restaurants on Chestnut (a couple blocks), and the Marina (4-5 blocks). Street parking was easy -- though you had to move the car periodically. But never had trouble finding a spot within a block. For any boaters this is a perfect location -- transient berthing in SF Marina is quite reasonable, and they give you parking. Walk from the flat to the boat in 15 minutes.

Great aparment, excellent for multiple couples or even families!

  • 5 of 5

My coworkers and I were in town for an art fair, and this was the best apartment we could have hoped for! The neighborhood is very friendly, plenty of lovely restaurants, bars, markets, etc., and is walking distance to the Presidio (beautiful!). The apartment is laid out well, with 2 bedrooms on one side and the 3rd on the other side, great for families or couples who'd like a little space from each other. The separate toilet room and shower room were strange at first, but we realized with 4 adults it's actually nice - someone can be having a shower and not keep the toilet utilized at the same time! Kitchen was fully equipped with whatever you might need. Excellent apartment, and Sharon was great and helped us out tremendously. Would totally stay there again! Thanks!!

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.
