About the property

About Rachel Taylor

Like you, my husband and I enjoy traveling, nature, time with family and friends, and a good book.

Bay Area natives, we live in San Francisco and work in tech and public art professions. We are avid urban hikers and cyclists. Jess is a potter (he created the pottery in our home). We love to cook and enjoy long meals with friends and family.

When we are not in California, we can be found studying ancient cultures and exploring ancient ruins in Greece and Italy.

It's a pleasure to share our home in the middle of a world-renowned city with you.

Rachel & Jess

Why Rachel Taylor chose The Castro

Located in Corona Heights, on a hill between the Castro and Cole Valley, the home and backyard offer scenic views.

Corona Heights is in the very heart of the city. Many of the city’s “must experience” neighborhoods and parks are within walking distance of the home, including the Castro, Mission District, Cole Valley, Haight-Ashbury, as well as Golden Gate Park, Twin Peaks, and Dolores Park.

There is so much going on every day and night of the week if you want within a few blocks from our home. And you return to a romantic home to relax and enjoy in sunny Corona Heights, with a private garden and views of the city and bay.

What makes this house unique

Guests will have access to the 2-story home, backyard and free parking in front of the home. You will have access to room except our personal office and garage.

To give you as much insider guidance as possible, we created a guide that highlights our favorite restaurants, cafes, parks, bars, markets, as well as a guide to help you navigate the art scene (broken down by districts). In addition, as an avid urban hikers, we created a guide of our favorite urban hikes which will introduce you to many of the city's treasurers. This guide is exclusively available to guests upon their arrival. Lots of insider knowledge to ensure you get the most from your visit to the city. A print version of this guide is waiting for you in the home.

There is a friendly cat who lives in the home and roams freely into the backyard. Depending on the dates, he may or may not be at the home (he travels with us as well). If he is at the home, he will need daily feeding. Please let us know you would like to care for the cat yourself or if you prefer a cat-sitter comes once a day to take care of his needs.

Guests must shower thoroughly each time before entering the spa. A shower with a rain head and warm water is near the spa. Failure to do so will result in a $500 fee from the security deposit to pay for emptying, cleaning and replacement of the water.

The home is shoe-free. We will provide slippers if you don't have your own.

For security purposes, there is a camera monitoring the front door.
