* Backs up to 1st Fairway of the Bodega Harbour Golf course ; Gorgeous views of Bodega Head, Doran Beach and the Pacific Ocean.

* The house is well-laid out with vaulted ceilings in all rooms, beautiful wood molding, skylights and tall picture windows. There are 2 beach access trails off of Gull Drive so you are literally minutes from the water.

Layout of House: All bedrooms/kitchen/bathrooms/dining room are located on the main-level. The living room is on the upper level-up about 6 carpeted steps with a railing. 2-car garage.

There are 2 low-level cement steps and 2 wooden steps prior to front door. As you enter the front door on the main floor the Master Bedroom is to your right & sits facing the front of the home with ocean views from all its windows.

MASTER BDRM/BATH: Lrg room with a King size bed, HDTV/Cable/DVD/HBO/Blu Ray. There is also a separate full bath with double vanity/toilet closet in this room. Room is large with a trundle bed in it as well (2-twins...great for kids). The beds have reading lamps for all guests.

DINING TABLE/KITCHEN: The kitchen is fully-equipped and the dining table sits next to it and seats 6-8 guests. We keep the pantry stocked with various seasonings, teas, coffee, foil, saran wrap...etc. There are two decks off these rooms. A deck to the back facing the golf course with 2-lounge chairs and an enclosed deck to the side with the HOT TUB. The hot-tub deck is enclosed with a 4.5 foot fence with a barked in area behind it. Here sits a Weber propane barbecue as well.

BDRMS #2 & #3: Located back wing of home affording privacy from Mstr. Both these rooms are spacious with vaulted ceilings , Queen beds/TV/DVD. Both have reading lamps for all guests.

The 3rd bedroom has a water view from its front facing windows.

Beautiful sunsets and a great view of Doran Beach, Bodega Head and Pacific Ocean beyond. Lrg. Screen 55' HDTV/BLU-ray/DVD, stero-cd player, bookcase with a lrg. assortment of books & magazines, and a lrg. assortment of DVD's. Leather couches and a fireplace in this spacious room make it a wonderfully relaxing area to spend with family/friends.

Beach items: Beach blankets, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, ice chests, sand toys located in garage. We even keep a beach pass for families wanting to drive to the State Beach at Doran entrance with all their 'stuff' saving you the $6 parking fee.

What do we/guests love most about the home? The house has a very open uncluttered feel with all the sunlight from skylights/windows and vaulted ceilings. Love being able to walk out the front door and hit the beach in 2-3 min. The Master Bdrm in the front and the Guests Bdrms in the back wing of the home give a measure of privacy to couples/families with kids. We clean the home ourselves so know it's clean, functioning and is always well stocked with soap/paper products/supplies. Extra pillows/blankets in all rooms. Free long-distance calling to USA/Canada as well. A home away from home without all the 3C's: chores, clutter & chaos.

About Debbie & Dave Tarca

**pic of Vineman Triatholon 2015**

Dave and I are both college graduates [Dave Business Degree SSU/Debbie RN Degree PUC]. Dave grew up in Penngrove & Debbie is from the Bay Area. Dave runs Acrat Plumbing & Heating, LLC and is a LICENSED General Contractor, Electrical Contractor, Plumbing & Heating Contractor. Debbie runs Bodega Bay Rentals, LLC and cares for our 3 children. We love the outdoors. We are also supportive Sponsors of Sonoma County 4H and FFA. We also own vrbo 330680.

Debbie & Dave Tarca purchased this house in 2001

Why Debbie & Dave Tarca chose Sonoma County

Dave has worked over the years on many of the homes in the Harbor and we'd grown to love driving out to this area. When the opportunity to own a home of our own appeared we jumped on the offer. We feel very fortunate to be a part of the Bodega Harbor Community.

What makes this house unique

Doran Beach is a wonderful location to enjoy with children; Armstrong Woods with its majestic redwood trees; Hwy 1 is a beautiful scenic Drive; the restaurants in the Bodega Bay area are fabulous!; Close drive to everything but far enough to feel like you are away from everything!

As a family that travels we so appreciate when owners have pre-stocked THEIR homes well. I like to think we've done the same. A fully stocked kitchen with foil/ziplocks...dishes/pots & pans that are in GOOD glasses...seasonings; family supplies that include games, baby gear, beach supplies.... A home that functions and is clean is what I look for in a home. A hot tub that sparkles and works is a MUST. These are things we look for in homes we rent and they are a must in our own.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This home had everything we needed as a group of 3 couples... hot tub/private bedrooms/Weber barbq (the same one I have at home!)/comfortable furnishings and a full kitchen. I love a home that has everything and we were time & again both surprised and pleased to the attention to the 'little details' that make a stay that much more enjoyable. Great linens & CLEAN! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

beautiful Bodega get away

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing. The kitchen had everything imaginable. The furnishings throughout were super comfortable. Every imaginable amenity from video games and movies, geocaching gps and info; family games and toys. Great ocean views. A nice place for walks. Right on the golf course. There were long beautiful beaches close by. The local restaurants are great. Be sure and visit Occidental for the Italian food at Negris or the Union Hotel and definitely go to Osmosis spa in Freestone. It is truly amazing. Gorgeous Japanese gardens there.

There is a local ranch where you can go horseback riding on the beach. The kids loved it.

The owners made the process of renting very simple.

All in all - one of the best vacations ever.

Perfect beach/golf/wine getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home is attractive, extremely well equipped, clean, and nicely located near beach and golf course with a stunning view. The owner/manager is very accommodating. She even set up a Christmas tree and other decorations of the season for our family holiday. There was absolutely nothing lacking. There is plenty to do in the area if you have a car and don't mind driving a half hour or so. The beach is just a short walk down the hill.

Be sure to read the rules relating to number of guests. The homeowners' association is quite strict, and renters must abide by the number of people listed on the agreement. This applies to daytime visitors as well as overnight stays.

We would happily stay here again if visiting in the area.

Beautiful home in a peaceful neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented several homes before and we all agree that Debbie's home is one of the best so far. The home was well stocked with cookware and since we tend to purchase and prepare all of our own food, this was important to us. In addition, the home was clean and comfy, with beautiful views of the bay. Six of us celebrated my partner's birthday here and we danced in front of the fire in the fire place, while playing music on the sound system provided. The hot tub was very welcoming and the quality gas grill was a plus. Another great feature, was being able to pull our vehicles into the garage and unload from there into the house. A short stroll down the hill and we were on the beach. There was not really anything else one could ask for.

I could live here‼️

  • 5 of 5

I see myself here...I can picture day to day life in this home and in this community...we are spending time here in Bodega bay to determine if it will be a good fit for us in retirement. This home is so well equipped with all we could ask for of our own home, that it has made actually living here easy to imagine....this is a "5 star" property,

And someday may be my neighbor 😀

San Francisco is a 90 minute drive; Wineries are 30-60 min away. Bodega Bay is a great fishing village with wonderful little shops; Town of Bodega is a 10 min drive where Alfred Hitchcock filmed 'The Birds'. The town still houses the original school house and church that were featured in the movie. Occidental about 30 minutes away has Sonoma Canopy Tours (ziplining...NOT to be missed!) and follow up with a great home style meal at Union Hotel or Negris. Great shops in Occidental as well all within walking distance; In Freestone visit Osmosis Day Spa & Freestone Wild Flour Bread Bakery.
