A Zen location
We spent a great week here in August (2018) and I echo the previous reviewers in their compliments.
The location is the best and while the property is in need of updating (I understand that a renovation is in the works), this fact should not detract from truly enjoying this spot.
The common areas are comfortable, welcoming, and easy to enjoy even if they are not luxurious in the typical sense. The kitchen is fully stocked and easy to use. We stocked up on groceries in Petaluma and enjoyed 100% of our meals here. The bedrooms are both adequate with access to the deck allowing one to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean! The bath and a half worked out fine for our small group of four adults too. Having a ping pong and foosball table in the garage was way cool too!
As previous guests have noted, there is no washer/dryer, the cell service is spotty, (but the WiFi is tremendous), there are no beach towels (but everything else needed for the beach!), and the furnishings are a bit dated. Still, we "survived" a beach week without any trouble.
Linda and the Property Manager (I am sorry that I forgot his name) were very responsive to each and every request both prior to and during our stay. Fresh towels and TP were even dropped off midway through our stay.
Overall, this place provided us with a memorable week right on Dillon Beach!
We are delighted to find out that you enjoyed your stay at Whale Watch and falling asleep with the sound of the ocean.
WE hope you will visit us again after the re-model!
thank you for your booking again!
Beautiful location, but would not stay there again.
The hall toilet leaked the whole time (running noise, not water), the master bedroom smelled funny, and the main kitchen light was out.
In response to your review: As soon as you called the property manager the property manager was at the house within an hour and repaired the toilet and placed a new light in the kitchen. The reason for the smell in the bedroom is that you allowed your pets to sleep on the bedding in the master bedroom and we had to replace all of the bedding in this bedroom. The bedding was damp and full of pet hair. Pet hair does not wash completely out of bedding and we request in our reservation contracts that the renter will not allow pets on bedding or it will have to be replaced. You did agree not to allow your pets on the bedding and we did charge you to replace the bedding per our agreed signed reservation contract.
Loved the view
Certainty needs updating. We had problems with the tv. After reading the instructions we still were not able to get any programs. We looked for a number to call VRBO owners but couldn't find it. They may want to leave better instructions on how to do this. Some of the guests felt that their beds were not very cortfortable in thr bedroom with two beds. The kitchen was very well stocked. We certainly enjoyed the views and the deer.
Thank you for writing a review for Whale Watch we appreciate it. We have the property manager's contact information listed on several pages inside the booklet provided for our guests inside the house in the event our guests have any issues while staying in the home. You were able to contact me and I was able to take care of the TV glitch for you. We are delighted to find out that you enjoyed the ocean front views from this home. Thank you for staying with us.
Superb Ocean Views and Beach
The unobstructed views of the Ocean, Beach and walks on the Beach made this visit a memorable one for our family. The house itself could use some tender care, painting and update.... but the location balanced those shortcomings. Don't be surprised as we were about having no washer and dryer (Advised later that this is not listed in the listing.) The nearest laundromat is over 20 miles away. as we travel real light this was important..... but again the ocean views and beach access were great!
