We are a professional couple, parents of a lovely 24-year-old daughter who is living in Rome. The photo above shows us at restaurant in Rome last December, in the middle of a long Christmas feast.
We have lived and worked overseas, love to travel and enjoy anyone else who does as well. We tend to travel and explore close to the ground, opting for house exchanges or small rental apartments so that we can enjoy the rhythm of daily life wherever we are.
Our house is filled with books, music, movies and laughter. John is a film buff and has amassed a large collection of genre films from noir to musicals, and everything in between. Rachael is an avid dancer and would be happy to introduce you to one of many great dance studios in the area. We both love to provide specialized tips for our guests, about places and activities that will make their stay here truly special--whether they are interested in the best vintage record stores, the most outrageous places to surf, or the best Chinese dim sum restaurant. We love to share a latte in our kitchen in the morning with guests while they munch on Rachael's muffin of the morning (different every day), fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereal.
We are the guardians of some sweet, senior pets: two cats and one blind dog. They are around if you want to have animal time but keep to themselves if not. We look forward to sharing this lovely spot in San Francisco with others.
We love to host guests and we love to travel. Luckily, we have a wonderful guest host who helps us when we are traveling. Michael Bongiorni is a neighbor who is a natural born host and a professionally trained chef and baker. Together we are always thinking about new ways to make the guest experience more delightful.
