We also own vrbo 330680. 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 2001
Why Debbie & Dave Tarca chose Bodega Bay
Gull Drive is the closest road to the Beach with two beach trails. We wanted a home as close to water as possible. Great views and an easy walk to beach and clubhouse.
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 shape...wine/bar 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.

The Sea Escape We Needed
For starters, this was just about the cleanest rental we’ve ever stayed in! Very spacious and uncluttered with wonderful views of the bay and ocean. The walk to the beach was accurately described, the owner was very communicative and welcoming and we found everything we needed. Loved the comfy beds and couches! Personally I would never block any of the views with the large screen tv, but once the sun went down we did enjoy a movie on it ;). We would definitely recommend this property.
Thanks for your very kind review Charlotte! I had to laugh re TV! The hubs and I had the longest debate on just that and TV has been all over that room lol. Fortunate to have such a great view from so many windows... That wee corner had the least negatives when adding in sun glare. I suggested to the kids we go without a TV...lol... by their response you’d think I’d killed the family dog😱�
Do yourself a favor and stay here!
Beautiful house with amazing views! A nice short walk to the beach, comfy beds, large hot tub, quiet neighborhood and sweet owners are just a few of the reasons why we’ll be coming back!
Pacific View rebiew
We were impressed as soon as we walked in with cleanliness, amenities, thought to details. We also really appreciated our ability o bring grand child and our kid’s pet- a small dog. Games for every age group, suggested places to go and even a small dog waste area so we didn’t have to leash up every time.
Lovely and close to the ocean
We really enjoyed this home! It's airy, bright and fully stocked. No need to pack the extras for food/bathroom as basics were provided (thank you!). We were able to hang out together in the common areas or find our own space as needed with plenty of room to spare, and the views/beach were just lovely! Particularly appreciated the supplies left out for keeping sand controlled on the way into the house, so very helpful.
Great bodega bay stay
We had a great time. The house was very nice and in a great neighborhood
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.
