Property description

No telescope necessary! This house has expansive ocean views from the interior of the house as well as the 800 square foot back deck, just yards above the surf. To the north, Bodega Head is visible in the distance. The Pacific Ocean and beautiful sunsets are straight out back to the west, and the full length of Dillon Beach itself along with Tomales Point beckon to the south.

Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells of the ocean, while watching surfers catch a wave and dog owners watching their pets run free on the sand. Our guests report a favorite activity is to belly up to the deck railing in the late afternoon to watch the sun sink toward the horizon, and enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine, or beverage of your choice. Those in the know have also enjoyed returning to the deck after dark to gaze at the constellations, when the Dillon sky on a clear night shows them off like they were just above the rooftops.

In addition to the fabulous views, access to the beach itself is quick and easy. A 2 minute walk down the street to the marked beach trail, then another minute or two down to the sand. (The trail is narrow and winding in a couple of places, so if you are unsteady on your feet the public parking lot is a short drive away) Once on the sand, you can hike the entire 2 mile length of Dillon Beach or explore the rocky tidal pools, where crabs, mussels, and other sea creatures may be found. No matter what your interest, there is something for everyone at the beach. It is one of the only beaches in the area to allow dogs off leash. You can sunbathe, surf, dig for clams, watch the kite boarders, or just relax and enjoy the salt air.

Beauty on the Beach is an older, comfortable house in the process of being updated by new owners. The furniture and decorations appeal to those looking for a fun, yet unpretentious spot to temporarily call home. The large, open floor plan is specifically designed to encourage interaction with family and friends. The ocean is ever present, with views from almost every area of the home whether you are fixing a meal in the kitchen, playing pool in the entertainment area, or walking out of an upstairs bedroom.

The upstairs sleeping area has three bedrooms with two full baths, and a balcony running the entire length of the second story, that is open to allow conversation between those upstairs and down. The master has a Cal King bed and full bath. The middle bedroom has two queen beds and a twin bunk bed. The third bedroom also has a Cal King bed. A second full bathroom is also upstairs for easy access.

Downstairs is the entertainment area, which includes the open kitchen, dining area, fireplace conversation pit, and TV/Wet Bar area with pool table. A large sofa and pub table ensure there is seating for all to gather round. The kitchen and dining area are on the beach view side of the ground floor. The dining table with breakfast bar has enough seating for the entire group to be together while a meal is being prepared, or have a sit down dinner for 10. The kitchen is well stocked with all of the basic items and many extras.

For those who can't live without their gadgets, we have wireless internet service along with Dish Satellite TV. The smart TV has 250 channels, HBO, and Showtime, along with access to Pandora, Netflicks, etc. Apple folks will find convenient docks located in the bedrooms to charge I phones, and a sound dock in the living room to play your own music if the available CD's are not to your taste. All bedding and limited number of towels are provided, along with all of the usual household items. Both a washer and dryer are on the premises and available for limited use.

Nearby restaurants include American, Italian, and Seafood cuisine, all within a short drive. Convenience store and bakery located within 5 minute drive. See the binder in the house for specific references and directions. Nearby day trip locations include Napa and Sonoma Valley (hot air ballooning and wine tasting), Bodega Bay (golf and quaint shops), Sausalito (upscale boutiques), San Francisco, Point Reyes, and Armstrong Park.

I hope we provided enough information to give you a mental picture of the house and it's amenities, but please view the actual photos to see for yourself. If you decide you are ready for a relaxing stay at the beach, please consult the calendar to view available dates and contact us!
