About Rachel Taylor
Like you, my husband and I enjoy traveling, nature, time with family and friends, and a good book. Marin and Bay Area natives, we live in San Francisco and work in tech and public art professions. We have been playing in Pt Reyes since childhood, and are avid hikers and cyclists. Jess is a potter and made all of the pottery in our home. When we are not in California, we can be found studying ancient cultures and exploring ancient ruins in Greece and Italy. We look forward to sharing our home with you. Rachel & Jess
Why Rachel Taylor chose Inverness
There is so much to explore . . . all within reach of this centrally located home base. The historic town of Inverness is only a walk away and includes an oyster and wine bar, cafes and restaurants, and a grocery store and deli. The outdoor opportunities are endless. Launching from the home, you will be able to enjoy kayaking in Tomales bay, hiking throughout the Point Reyes National Seashore, bird watching in the Estero, and picnics on pristine beaches. And after a day in the great outdoors you return to a relaxing, luxurious, and well-equipped home, with private balconies, a garden and spectacular views of the bay and surrounding landscape. There is nothing like this breathtaking home in the Point Reyes Region. Located on 1.5 acres, the 2,200 square foot home is completely private, surrounded by nature and wildlife, and has spellbinding views from every room.
What makes this House unique
There is nothing like this home in the Point Reyes region. The home is modern with breathtaking views from every room. While tempting to bird-watch from the comfort of the sofa or from one of the many balconies with a plate of local cheese and glass of wine in hand, we encourage you to get out and explore. Bring your mountain bikes and hiking shoes, binoculars to bird and whale watch, as well as daypacks, stroller, and a picnic basket. Once you're in the home, you will not want to leave it's relaxing comfort. Guests have access to the entire home, all decks and balconies, and the garden to create your own experience. To give you as much insider guidance as possible, we created a guide that highlights our favorite restaurants, delis and markets, as well as a guide to help you navigate the many activities that are available and the treasures you will discover in the surrounding national park. A print version of this guide is waiting for you in the home. If you would like to have customized services tailored to your specific desires, please contact Rachel. She can help arrange for personal chefs to dazzle you with their culinary ability and massage therapists to revive your body and spirit. Please let us know how we can improve your experience.

Well appointed home
Property location was very private with wonderful, with ever changing views from each window. Our family enjoyed the original art and pottery throughout. We were disappointed that there was not adequate lighting after sunset to enjoy reading, games or puzzles in the living area as others stated, which should be an easy fix. However, it was the most restrictive vacation rental property we've ever stayed in. Our time spent inside the home was not relaxing but instead permeated by the long list of do's and don'ts and the threat of extra charges, including the missing 2nd key which took us hours to find. One got the impression that the owners were not truly comfortable with strangers in their home but instead renting as a way for them to help defray the mortgage costs. The listing states that the property sleeps 6. We noticed after the rental was confirmed and paid for that under the owners fee breakdown we were charged for additional guests. Upon questioning the charge we were told that the nightly rate was based on just 4 people. We couldn't find reference to that anywhere. That should be clearly stated up front. We chose the property because we were a party of six and the house sleeps six. We would have chosen another property rather than knowingly paid the extra guest charge.
It is a pleasure to share our vacation home with travelers who wish to enjoy the region. The quality of the home, its offerings, and the views are unique to the region. I am sorry it did not meet your expectations. All my best.
Incredible scenery and views from this idyllic retreat. Close to the Point Reyes national park with beautiful beaches and lots of scenic walks . A perfect haven to escape city life for a few days. Very well equipped house, comfortable and welcoming. We will be back!

Amazing home with great views
Great space, clean and comfortable with a well-equiped kitchen. The teenagers would have liked some shades in the bedrooms as the sun woke them up early, but otherwise a perfect weekend away.
Thank you, Molly. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to your return.
The home is surrounded by Point Reyes National Seashore (a national park).
