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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Super comfortable, great views

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. It has beautiful views and nice cozy spots to hang out. And it had just about everything we needed including a bunch of great baby/child gear. Bodega Bay was gorgeous and fun to explore. We would definitely come back.

COMFORTABLE, CHILD-FRIENDLY HOME

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at this welcoming home. Our two-year-old granddaughter found children's books, a small rocking chair and a stool. There were safety plugs in the outlets and the furniture had rounded edges. It was a perfect place for us. There are beautiful views of the Bay. The beach is a short walk away, and there is a children's play area with swings and a slide nearby. We will be back!

Quality time with family and such a relaxing time...

  • 5 of 5

I was really impressed with the amenities in the house. Both of my grandchildren were there with us and they had so many things to play with and do. Sand toys and things in the garage for them. Toys upstairs in the front room. I'll kinds of DVDs and books for us to read. I stayed in several vacation rentals before and this was by far the very best one that I've ever stayed in. I will absolutely, happily be back next time we choose to stay in a vacation rental. Of all the vacation rentals I've ever stayed in this was by far the best experience . The beach was literally 10 minutes away from us. Easy, easy walk down to the beach. little bit of A walk back to the house but totally doable . If you have older people in your group it would probably be A bit difficult for them, the hike back to the house from the beach . Five stars all around here we will definitely be back .

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.
