Welcome to the Marina

Waterfront Living in a Historic Setting

The waterfront neighborhoods of the Marina known for its thriving community and gorgeous waterfront overlooking the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Originally made up of bay shallows, tidal pools, sand dunes, and marshland, the Marina as it stands today, developed after the Panama Pacific International Exposition, is filled with beautiful homes and condos built in the 1920’ and 30’s, with classic details, character that is only found in San Francisco.


Homes here live up to and exceed their price tags, giving residents a certain quality of life that is hard to match. It is an affluent neighborhood with good vibes, always welcoming and friendly with a youthful attitude.  


Marina Boulevard will leave you in awe, as locals and tourist alike walk or jog along the picturesque shoreline.  The thriving community is fortunate to have popular attractions such as access to the Golden Gate Bridge, Crissy Field, and the Palace of Fine Arts, along with a variety of shopping and restaurants on vibrant Chestnut Street.



  • Proximity to the waterfront
  • A carefree community
  • Vibrant dining and shopping options
  • Picturesque setting with great architecture


The Marina possesses the charming personality of a small and very unique enclave that is unlike other neighborhoods of San Francisco.  Residents enjoy the same modern conveniences as those living in other parts of the city, however with the proximity of the waterfront you can easily see where people go to exercise and decompress after work.


The attraction of living in the Marina is mostly about lifestyle, it is truly idyllic, charming with a small neighborhood appeal. These qualities can be extremely hard to find in more modern parts of the city. Families adore calling the Marina home, they would not settle for other areas of the city as lifestyle prevails in this community.


Chestnut Street Shopping District offers a variety of fun restaurants and dozens of small, unique shops stores all worth a visit. You can also find larger brand name stores such as Apple, Sephora and Z Gallerie.  


For a casual date night without too much fuss, we have always enjoyed award winning A16.  They take the craft of making pizza seriously, bring the traditional techniques of making Neapolitan (Naples-style) pizza. Great wine, pizza and atmosphere is hard to beat.


Delarossa is another go-to destination for casual, communal-style and open dining that spills onto the sidewalk dining areas, this is a favorite of mine for lunch. Beloved for its Roman-style pizza, small plates, craft beer, Italian and Californian wines, and delicious craft cocktails. 


The Tipsy Pig is a fan favorite! Offering classical and delicious Americana cuisine in a timeless setting and is simply fantastic. I love the variety of foods and the atmosphere that that this establishment has to offer. A locals favorite place for sure.


I cannot mention food without mentioning my lunchtime favorite, Tacolicious! As the name implies, this is my go-to Mexican restaurant on Chestnut, often grabbing a quick bit or meeting friend.  


The Marina is a picturesque location on the north side of San Francisco where residents enjoy getting outdoors to enjoy their surroundings.

Every day I see people enjoying time out on Crissy Field, which runs from the Golden Gate Bridge to Fort Mason. Special events and festivals, kids soccer gates, people flying kits and of course joggers and people strolling through the beautiful scenery.

Fort Mason is an old army base that was remodeled in 1977 to host large events. There are stores, restaurants, galleries plus much more, such as Ocean Film Festival and our annual trip to buy our Christmas trees with the help of the Guardman.  For some weekly entertainment and delicious food, you must go to Off The Grid, which has live music, food trucks and simply a great place to hang with friends.  

Special events, galas, weddings, tradeshows and more can also be found at the Palace of Fine Arts.  This wonderful setting was created in 1915 for the Panama-Pacific Exhibition and worth time to sit and enjoy the beautiful architecture.


Schools in the San Francisco Unified School District are worthy of praise. Great options for local schools are:
