About Debbie & Dave Tarca
I'm Debbie and my husband Dave is a Plumbing/Heating/Electrical contractor and runs his own business (handy when you run vacation rentals). Debbie runs Bodega Bay Rentals. Both college grads (Dave SSU Business/Debbie Pacific Union Nursing). We are active in kids lives (college/hs/jr hi). 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. We are local and available 24/7 to help at any time...even if just a texted question. Dave is a plumbing/electrical/heating contractor. If an issue pops up...we respond asap. 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.

Beautiful home with amazing views
We could not have enjoyed our visit to this great house more! It started with good communication with the owner, Debbie, who guided us every step of the way.
The house itself is a perfect beach getaway. There are views from almost every room of the house! There is comfortable and plentiful seating in the kitchen and living areas. The beds are very comfortable, with plenty of plush linens in the bathrooms. The house itself has everything you could need with a stocked pantry and even a pound of Starbucks coffee!
We will definitely stay here again!
Perfect vacation spot!
This beautiful home was absolutely perfect for our family vacation. Nice gathering area, amazing views, well supplied kitchen, very clean and great central location to all the places we wanted to visit.
i cannot adequately express just how FABULOUS our stay here was. they have absolutely everything you could possibly need, on hand. very clean, organized, and VERY kid friendly!
we could not have asked for anything better! the views are wonderful, the beach is so super close, just minutes walking, and the neighborhood is just so lovely and low key.
we are definitely going to do it again!!!!
thanks again for such a lovely holiday in your beautiful home!!!
We had a great experience. It was a perfect weekend. We had a short stay and didn’t plan to go anywhere other than the beach so having a place that was comfortable was important. There was plenty of room and we all appreciated the well-stocked kitchen and bath accessories! We did make it to the bakery Debbie suggested. We even went back on our way home to buy some for a friend. Thank you again!
We had a great long weekend at Gull drive. It was a great house for a family. Lots of space for kids to play. There were plenty of board games and a fun ping pong table. Great little walk to the beach. The place had lots of beach toys and chairs.
The kitchen was very well stocked with cookware. It was a lovely place to stay.
