About Tara

Family built and owned. With our children not wanting to sell the home we have elected to offer it for rent. The home is family managed, which is a benefit to you as a guest because we are available 24/7 should any problems arise (hopefully NOT). Bottom line is we take pride in our rental home as it was once our family home.

Tara purchased this apartment in 2002

Why Tara chose Mission Beach

We choose to build in Mission Beach because of its simple, casual lifestyle and unique beauty. It is freeway close to everything, yet when you get home to the beach it is as if you are in a different world

What makes this apartment unique

Experiencing the exhilarating feeling of opening the balcony door and hearing the ocean waves and smelling the clean, salt air.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We live in Phoenix. We have been coming every summer the past 5 years and stayed in the same location, owned by Howard and Bobbie. The owners live close and are on hand to help out if needed. Great location to walk to dinner, shopping and Belmont park amusement center for the kids

Family get together May 2018

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for a multi-generation family get together. Property was very clean. Downstairs area was larger than it appears in photos so there was plenty of room for all of us to hang out together. Kitchen was very well equipped for preparing a variety of meals. Bedrooms were comfortable. Patio was very roomy. Availability of beach toys, chairs, umbrellas was a huge plus. The location could not be more perfect. I would definitely rent here again.

Great vacation house, right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our vacation. From watching the sunset from our patio each day to sitting on the beach, this home was wonderful. Steaks on the grill one night, delivery and board games another. Best buzz coffee down the street became our favorite and running into the city for donuts in the morning only took 15 min. The area was active but not crazy during the day and quiet at night. Truly a great stay, we would definitely come again!

Instant access to beautiful beaches and stunning evening sunsets.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took our three daughters for a week stay at this incredible property. As soon as you walk out the door you are on beautiful and spacious beaches. The evening sunsets were spectacular. The property itself was clean and well maintained. The kitchen and outdoor grill served us well for dinners each night while taking in the daily breath taking sunsets. Beyond that San Diego has a ton to offer and from this location everything is within 15-20 minute car ride. La Jolla, San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, USS Midway, Embarcadero, Gas Lamp, and Coronado island. We had very high expectations in advance of this trip and those expectations were exceeded. We highly recommend this location. Thanks again, Paul.

Great Stay at Gulls Rest!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved staying at Gulls Rest - great location on Mission Beach, perfectly clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Great beds, good neighbors. Close to everything we wanted to do - diving, kayaking, biking, beaching, zoo, great coffee and restaurants all within 20 minutes. Thank you, Tara, for a wonderful place for our brief trip - we'll be back!

Fantastic house. Exactly as advertised!👍

  • 5 of 5

Excellent experience, our first time renting from VRBO. The house was great right across from the beach! We loved every second. The house was stocked with everything you could possibly need and it was very clean. Street parking was easy to find. There are two designated parking spots in the garage, but we needed more parking. It’s close to restaurants and shops. Our family made amazing memories and we are grateful for the experience. Tara was a delight to work with and answered quickly when contacted.

We would rent that house again!!!

fantastic san diego beach house

  • 5 of 5

this house was terrific for our family with 4 kids. you just can't get any closer to the beach! We loved starting each days walking along the boardwalk to some great breakfast options and the house was situated very conveniently to everything we went to see in San Diego: Sunset cliffs, La Jolla, Old Town, and Balboa Park. House was as described, clean, and comfortable. The garage is a tight squeeze. We had a minivan and I parked it there once and only once because I could barely open the door! But I never had any trouble finding parking on the street so this was no big deal. We would definitely stay here again next time we are in San Diego.
