Dillon Beach house description

Dillon Beach is one of the last accessible bastions of peace and tranquility that you'll find anywhere on the California Coast. This remote, albeit centrally located community, is situated about one hour north of San Francisco. It is just a few miles off Highway 1 at the 'end of the road,' nestled in the rolling coastal foothills of Marin County. You will pass through the historic town of Tomales (named for the 'Tomal' Indians).

Be sure to visit the Tomales History center and the William Tell House Restaurant. Sample early morning treats from the Tomales Bakery and Deli, all seen in the 2001 motion picture 'Bandits.'

Our home is located four miles west of Tomales in the original little village area of Dillon Beach, and just two easy-walking blocks from the long, sandy beach. The house is very comfortable, accommodating a maximum of eight people.

We welcome families with children but request that the party securing the rental be at least 25 years old. Built in 1940, our family home has been remodeled and upgraded to fulfill everyone's comfort zone. Because 'Wind Song' has been in the family for over 60 years, you will enjoy the many personal touches and photos of the past - creating a hospitable atmosphere and a feeling of being at home.

From the bright and sunny living/dining room with ocean views, to the privacy of our beautiful little back yard where you can enjoy morning coffee while watching the birds feed and bathe, Wind Song will provide you with all the ingredients for solitude, relaxation, reflection and just plain fun. Visit the many antique shops in nearby Petaluma and Sebastopol. Play golf one-half hour away at Bodega Bay, or visit their quaint shops. On Friday's, you can visit the University of California Marine Biology Center and learn everything you have every wanted to know about lobsters and other marine life in the area.

Have dinner in one of the many wonderful restaurants frequented by the locals. Visit the Dillon Beach Cafe for a taste of local cuisine and the regulars. Take a drive to the surrounding wineries and do a little tasting.

Drive down the bay and purchase fresh oysters; eat them on site at the Tomales Bay Oyster Company or the Hog Island Oyster Company, both at the water's edge, or bring them back to Wind Song and barbeque them out on the deck (recipe posted on our bulletin board). Spend the day walking the beach to the fishing pier, or head up to the tide pools at the opposite end of the beach.

Top off your day with a late (and very safe) evening walk through the village enjoying the fragrances of the sea and sand, and look back at the warm glow of the lighted homes up on the hillsides. We invite you to visit us and share the experience. You will be amazed how easy it is to step back in time at Dillon Beach.

WE ENJOY KNOWING THAT PEOPLE WHO SHARE OUR HOME SHARE OUR LOVE OF THE COAST. WE ALWAYS ALLOW EARLY CHECK-IN/ - LATE CHECK-OUT TIMES WHENEVER POSSIBLE AT NO EXTRA CHARGE.
