Great Stay at Gulls Rest!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved staying at Gulls Rest - great location on Mission Beach, perfectly clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Great beds, good neighbors. Close to everything we wanted to do - diving, kayaking, biking, beaching, zoo, great coffee and restaurants all within 20 minutes. Thank you, Tara, for a wonderful place for our brief trip - we'll be back!

Fantastic house. Exactly as advertised!👍

  • 5 of 5

Excellent experience, our first time renting from VRBO. The house was great right across from the beach! We loved every second. The house was stocked with everything you could possibly need and it was very clean. Street parking was easy to find. There are two designated parking spots in the garage, but we needed more parking. It’s close to restaurants and shops. Our family made amazing memories and we are grateful for the experience. Tara was a delight to work with and answered quickly when contacted.

We would rent that house again!!!

fantastic san diego beach house

  • 5 of 5

this house was terrific for our family with 4 kids. you just can't get any closer to the beach! We loved starting each days walking along the boardwalk to some great breakfast options and the house was situated very conveniently to everything we went to see in San Diego: Sunset cliffs, La Jolla, Old Town, and Balboa Park. House was as described, clean, and comfortable. The garage is a tight squeeze. We had a minivan and I parked it there once and only once because I could barely open the door! But I never had any trouble finding parking on the street so this was no big deal. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in San Diego.

Everything and then some

  • 5 of 5

This property was well maintained and stocked with plenty of essentials. The layout of the unit was perfect for 3 bedrooms upstairs. Beautiful master. Tara was accessible and had answers to all questions. Having our own BBQ grill and outdoor seating area was so appreciated. We had a 1

year old crawling everywhere and felt that the floor downstairs and patio could have been cleaner but it's the beach.....

About Tara

Family built and owned. With our children not wanting to sell the home we have elected to offer it for rent. The home is family managed, which is a benefit to you as a guest because we are available 24/7 should any problems arise (hopefully NOT). Bottom line is we take pride in our rental home as it was once our family home.

Tara purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Tara chose Mission Beach

We choose to build in Mission Beach because of its simple, casual lifestyle and unique beauty. It is freeway close to everything, yet when you get home to the beach it is as if you are in a different world

What makes this apartment unique

Experiencing the exhilarating feeling of opening the balcony door and hearing the ocean waves and smelling the clean, salt air.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We live in Phoenix. We have been coming every summer the past 5 years and stayed in the same location, owned by Howard and Bobbie. The owners live close and are on hand to help out if needed. Great location to walk to dinner, shopping and Belmont park amusement center for the kids
