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. Wine & coffee are a must and if you see me around the harbour, its usually with one of my furry friends enjoying this beautiful area! 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. We live 20 min away so are available 24/7 to help at any time...even if just a texted question. Dave is a plumbing/electrical 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 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.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Beautiful views, very responsive owner
This house is close to everything Bodega Bay has to offer. The views are great. The furniture is comfortable. The owner was very responsive.
We couldn't find a recycle bin an we felt awful about leaving our recyclables in the trash.
We found the windows a little difficult to open = because of their design. Maybe some instructions for that.
The property owners were incredibly responsive to our pre-vacation questions. The property was clean, spacious, and accommodated two families attending a wedding. The views were beautiful. Can't say enough positive things about this rental.
Just like home...
This place had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. The host was awesome and very easy to work with. You can tell they put a lot of thought into having guests by how comfortable and convenient everything is in the house. We will definitely be back.
Amazing place for a family getaway
Great location, very clean and a super easy check in/out process. The space is great with beautiful views from the family room too - we could walk to the beach in 10 minutes! Can't wait to come back here for a family getaway!
Highly recommend! Great location and the house is fully equipped with everything you may need - especially if you have small kids. Our littles loved all the games, Nintendo and hot tub. The view is beautiful from the living room and there’s plenty of space to hang out comfortably as a family. House was clean and the owner was easy to communicate with and really helpful. Would definitely return.
Comfy, great view
The property was great. Did wish there was more comfy seating in the living area. There was only enough comfortable seating for 5. Also would have been nice to have a large area rug on the living room floor to lay on the floor to watch T.V. or for sitting on the floor around coffee table to play games. Really liked having so many great spices, and utensils in the kitchen.
Hot tub was great!!
Thanks Tamara. I'm so glad you had a good 50th bday wknd. The living room of sofa/loveseat/reclining chair seats 6 adults comfortably but I agree 8 adults is pushing it. As its a 3 bdrm with an extra trundle in master, I always suggest to groups that the home is perfect for groups of 6 adults max and 2 kids. The price is great for sleeping 8 in beds, but 8 adults can feel tight. Your group came just after our remodel (replaced carpeting with faux wood vinyl) and new living rm furniture although ordered 5 wks previous had not been delivered yet. We've since installed 2 full leather Lazy-Boy couches and a leather Lazy-Boy recliner (seating for 7 adults) and the area rug just came in for under the coffee table. I was thinking the same re kids & games around that table ;) I love the new set up and hope future guests will too. I hope to post updated pictures next week. Thanks again for staying with us & being so kind to the home. We enjoyed having you....
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.
