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 San Diego County

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

A wonderful place for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 year old loved all the toys. My 5 year old loved playing in the waves. We loved drinking coffee in the morning and watching the view of the beach and people on boardwalk. This property was close to many restaurants, market, belmont park, but no so close you were in the middle of the scene. The property came with everything we could think of: beach chairs, umbrellas, bikes, boogie boards, spices, dishes, linens. It was a great space to make family memories!

Great vacation on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The location is primo in Mission Beach ! The place is comfortable, clean, and the huge patio is what makes it great for a big group/family. They also had two bikes to use, boogie boards and other beach toys that were much used by us. The owner is also very nice to deal with!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

This home is lovely, view of the ocean from almost every window, large patio & enough beds to accommodate my large family. Nice garage with lots of toys, bikes, boogie boards, sand toys, games. It filled our every need & we had a beautiful week with the sand feet away & lovely sunsets every night. Morning coffee on the large bacony off master BR where we saw dolphins every morning! Loved out time there & will definitely be back!

Amazing Modern & up to Date Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Gulls Rest is a very clean, bright, spacious & modern Beach House. We enjoyed all the amenities provided.

The views were breathtaking and the place was decorated so cute!

The kitchen had everything we needed. The toys and beach chairs in the garage were put to good use (espc the bikes)

Liked having a large garage even though it was a tight fit!

The patio was spacious and we enjoyed using the grill to cook out.

The owner, Tara, was extremely pleasant and easy to work with. She always responded immediately when I had any questions.

Yes, I would highly recommend this property to family and friends!

The property was perfect. Loved the layout of the house, the most breathtaking views of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on a Sunday afternoon, and left the following Sunday. The house was very clean, and very welcoming. Kitchen was very well stocked, lots of pots & pans, coffee maker, toasters, serving & eating utensils. Bedrooms were very nice, especially the master. Plenty of towels for bathing to get us through the entire week. So nice having a full size washer & dryer in the home, so we did not have to pack as many clothes. Also, loved the fact that their were two beach cruisers that came with the house, and beach towels and LOTS of sand toys. So nice NOT having to pack all of that to bring with us. I would definitely stay at this house again. Perfect location, so close to everything. Majority of all activities were in walking distance or riding bikes. Thank you Tara, for everything!!!!!

Family & Fun

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful condo gave us the opportunity for a wonderful vacation experience celebrating my 70th birthday. The family gathered from multiple locations, and we were able to sit in various conversational groups to catch up with the others, some inside, some outside. Having the grill right outside the door was great. The picnic table by the grill couldn't have been more convenient for our talks and for eating. The property managers were kind and compassionate, the condo was clean, the washer and dryer we didn't expect to need came in handy daily--for some reason the sand that is wonderful to walk on is less welcome inside swimsuits, shoes and clothes. The condo was equipped with lots of toys for the kids to play with on the beach, as well as boogie boards for kids of all ages. Each morning we watched the navy men jogging on the beach. We saw people of every shape and color enjoying the boardwalk. We even saw Slomo. If you don't know about him, here is his info. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn87-mcnoVc. Dolphins welcomed us from 100 ft away, a sailboat class was in session (beautiful sight) as well as a surfing class for little ones. A company nearby rented us all the makings we would need for a bonfire on the beach. The week was a truly awesome experience indeed. Thank you Gull's Rest owners.
