We've owned & managed commercial/residential property in Sonoma Cnty for 25+ yrs and have rented our homes in Bodega Bay since 2001. When not working we enjoy being outside working our ranch, hiking or playing at the beach. If you see me around the harbour, its usually with one of my furry friends enjoying this beautiful area! We own vrbo 330680 & 82395. Our goal...YOU have a seamless vacation in a home that runs top to bottom. We clean/prep so have hopefully headed off any unwanted issues.

Our homes are self entry and guests given door code so entry at your leisure. Lots of extras. Questions don't hesitate to ask. Debbie & Dave Tarca
Debbie & Dave Tarca purchased this House in 2010
Why Debbie & Dave Tarca chose Bodega Bay
We purchased our first home in Bodega Bay around the corner (on Gull) from this one in 2001 as an investment. We love the area and renting it out to friends, family & guests. Dave actually did all the mechanical on this home when it was built in the 1990's so we knew it was a solid purchase. Add that to the amazing views of the home & the beach trail across the street and we were sold.
What makes this House unique
Our home sits at the crest of Gull Drive facing water. You can see the current moving, whales from living room windows and sounds of waves and seals. Very relaxing area... Gull Drive is the closest street to access trails/beach of anywhere in the harbor. We manage our homes in every way - as result our rates are lower than any of the homes around us including many back farther in harbor. Two beach trails off of Gull Drive...one right across the street. The other leading to the Bodega Harbour Clubhouse/Bistro & Bar. FABULOUS views! Located at the 9th Tee box for golfers that love to 'break' mid game. Kids love the Ping-Pong table. I love going for runs around the Harbour. Hills offer quite the challenge. We love to geocache and have plans to keep a binder of listings in the home (ask us!). Doran Beach is a wonderful gradually sloping beach for kids to play in. We even keep a beach pass to Doran Park in the home for Guests that want to use the 'day use' area at the State Park. I also like knowing the Coast Guard is stationed behind the park should someone need assistance. We keep lots of beach supplies in the home for families.

Gilliam Review of Gull House
Great location, views, etc. Perfect for our cousins’s reunion. Only suggestion for improvement would be to add ceiling fans. The house could use more ventilation on glorious fall days with no wind. We’ll be back!
We could not have been more pleased. Everything and more than what we could have asked for.
Bodega Bay Family Vacation
We were very pleased with our Bodega Bay family vacation experience. The owners were wonderful to deal with--even let us check in early when we arrived early in Bodega Bay. The house was in a great location for our purposes as we had a wedding to attend in Santa Rosa, just a short drive away. Part of the group made the easy trip to San Francisco to catch a baseball game and we all enjoyed outings to Armstrong Woods (at the owner's recommendation), local restaurants, and of course a drive up the coast. The view from the house is spectacular and we especially appreciated the baby gate, toys, and high chair for our toddler. I underestimated how chilly Bodega Bay would be so the hot tub was wonderful. The weather was sunny every day. Not having been to California before, the beach was very different from Atlantic beaches that I am accustomed to and we loved exploring the coast, seeing all the sea life on the rocks, finding sand dollars along the shore, and watching a beautiful sunset at Bodega Head. The sea lions were fun to watch, and we had a surprise visit by a bobcat in the Bodega Harbour neighborhood. Overall, we had a fabulous visit. No complaints at all about the beautiful house, the lovely neighborhood, and the beauty and serenity of Bodega Bay and the surrounding communities. Thank you all for your hospitality.
Great beach location
We thoroughly enjoyed our family vacation at this well equipped property. It had everything we needed and was located a short walk from the beach. No one wanted to go home at the end of our stay.
Great place to stay!
Wonderful home with great views! Great communication from the owner—many notes regarding how to use hot tub, appliances, etc. and a lot of information regarding places to visit, restaurants—very helpful! I would definitely stay here again when visiting Bodega Bay.
Bodega Bay Vacay
This house has the perfect amount of space for our extended family vacation. It was clean and well stocked with every day supplies. The views are gorgeous, and the walk to the tranquil beach was short and easy. The owner is super nice and very responsive. We are hoping to definitely come back some day.
