Dillon Beach house description
No telescope necessary! This house has full ocean and beach views from the expansive back deck, just yards from the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smell of the sea, while watching surfers catch a wave or dogs running on the sand. If you're lucky, a group of dolphins or a playful seal may cruise by the house on a search for food, and sea otters have been spotted playing in the kelp off the back of the house.
A favorite activity of house guests is to simply belly up to the railing in the late afternoon to watch the sun sink on the horizon, while enjoying 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 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 walk down to the sand. Once there, you can hike the entire 2 mile length of Dillon Beach or explore the rocky tide 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 to allow dogs off leash. You can sunbathe, surf, dig for clams, whale watch, or just relax and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smell of the ocean.
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. It provides unparalleled views with easy access to the beach and ocean. The large, open floor plan is specifically designed to encourage interaction with family and friends.
The upstairs sleeping area has three bedrooms with two full baths, and a balcony running the entire length of the second story allows 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 the living area, dining area, bar/pool table, and wood stove are all within sight and sound of each other. Seating is available for all to gather around.
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 new 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!

We had such a great, relaxing time at Beauty on the Beach! We could tell the beautiful furniture was new and there was such care in supplying the most comfortable beds, pillows and towels. The kitchen had everything we could ever want, even some great coffee and spices supplied. It seems like the owners have thought of everything to make their guests feel like they are at home, yet a bit pampered. We absolutely loved the house, but the views were just amazing! Not a better view around. The walks on the beach were just great - we had wonderful weather!! Thank you for sharing your sensational home with us.

We spent a week here and can't imagine enjoying a beach house more. There was everything we needed and things we didn't even think to bring provided. We walked in to a welcome gift from the owners and all was great from then on. We could have enjoyed the deck and the view for much longer. The house is clean and comfortable and we lacked for nothing. We had teenagers/grown children with us and there was plenty of space for everyone to do their thing and not feel cramped. An amazing property and we felt fortunate to stay there.

We spent the last week in October at Beauty on the Beach with our family and friends. We had a great time! We played golf, went on lots of walks, ate dinner in the village (the clam chowder was very good), went to Bodega Bay, and spent an afternoon in Petaluma. We also enjoyed spending time in the house and on the deck. The view is fantastic! The house is very comfortable. The new owners have made some very nice updates to the decor as well as stocking the kitchen. We love coming to Dillon Beach and hope to come back to this wonderful house again.

We were at "Beauty on the Beach" for 4 short days, and would have loved to stay longer! From the initial viewing of the property online, I knew it would be the place for us. There were only 3 of us and our dog, so the place was probably way more than we needed, however we were sold on the location and the amazing oceanfront view from the website. The decor may be outdated as seen from the photos, but that is easily overlooked as soon as you walk through the door. The property is very clean and well maintained, and the owners are very accommodating with check in/check out times if the property isn't booked back to back (which will NOT be the case as they continue to upgrade). The home feels enormous with the two very open levels. The kitchen is quite large, and the living areas are conducive to entertaining several activities at once. We planned ahead and brought King Crab legs and steaks to cook since the local restaurants are closed on some days and the major markets are quite far. The pool table was an added bonus, as we spent several nights playing non stop for hours! The bedrooms are quite comfortable and you can hear the ocean as you fall asleep and wake up. The deck is HUGE and has amazing views from all directions. The deer grazing and wandering through the property and the surrounding properties were an added bonus which we did not anticipate, neither of which did our dog, who woke up early each day to stare out the bedroom windows waiting for their appearance. The sunsets were unrivaled, even for us since we live 4 miles from the beach in LA! The beach itself is stunning and the view from this property is incomparable. We cannot wait to go back! Thank you Dennis and Ava, you made our short vacation an absolute pleasure!

A time to treasure
A time to treasure
Three girlfriends and I were awed by the beauty and vastness of the ocean that confronted us for a week. Our plan was to escape Texas' summer heat and our expectations were exceeded by not only the view, but also by the temp., which did not exceed 70. The house is large and well situated in a nice neighborhood. Owners Dennis and Ava anticipated our arrival with wine and snacks, and, as they knew that we'd be arriving very late, put a gallon of milk in the 'fridge. This just melted our hungry hearts! We took trips along the coast daily and had no trouble finding really good seafood esp. at Nick's Cove--think eggs benedict with fresh crab meat. B on the Beach is a treasure to be remembered.

A more relaxing vacation our family has never had. This property has something for everyone. Every day we woke up to a walk (and play) at the beach. The house is warm and inviting with so many games and activities, we were actually hard pressed to feel the need to leave and explore the surrounding areas. The book left to show us locations of interest was well put together and very informative. Everyone, adults and children alike, found something of interest and there was never a moment of boredom. Most mornings were spent drinking coffee of the huge deck overlooking the incredible view and most nights ended relaxing on that same deck looking at the stars. Beautiful, well kept, and little (and big) thoughtful touches by the owners. Best vacation in years! Will be sure to repeat our visit. Thank you!

We spent a long weekend for my daughter's 30th Birthday at Beauty on the Beach. The home has a "back in time" vibe and was extremely well cared for. We were comfortable from the moment of arrival. The view is beyond incredible. When cooking and looking out the almost all glass back wall, it felt as if we were on the open sea. It was wonderful to have the ocean as our backyard. Ample parking, which is rare in this area and the beach just a very short walk from the house. The owner's were gracious and very quick to respond to questions. My only negative was that we couldn't stay longer. Other than that...we will be back!

What a fabulous weekend. We rented this house for my husband's birthday weekend and had a marvelous time. The views are spectacular, the kitchen extremely well stocked and we loved brushing up on our pool skills. Although we were only here for a short time, we felt like we had a real vacation. Walking on the beach, lounging in the sun and just relaxing. Our lab had a great time as well!

Just loving coming to this hidden jewel of the California coastline. We stayed for the weekend in February. The weather was amazing. Sunshine everyday. The location of Beauty on the Beach is Great. Your just a minute walk to the sand. Take the road in front of the house, then down the path that follows the little stream. You can't beat the little restaurant in the village for lunch. Great fish tacos. Hope to be back soon.
