Dillon Beach house description

No telescope necessary! This house has beautiful Pacific Ocean and Dillon Beach views from the expansive back deck, just yards from the surf. Enjoy the sights, sounds, and smell of the ocean, while watching surfers catch a wave and dogs running free 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 just yards off the back of the house.

Our guests report a favorite activity is to simply belly up to the railing in the late afternoon, 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 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. (The trail is narrow and steep in a couple of places, so if you are unsteady on your feet the public parking lot is a 2 minute drive away) 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 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 or playing pool in the bar area.

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!
