Beautiful place to relax!
This property was very comfortable for 4 adults. All rooms are good size, including the kitchen which was stocked well with cooking utensils, dishware etc. The view is amazing and all the wildlife just made it even better. Bedrooms were also good size with lots of blankets and nice sheets. We didn't watch TV so I can't tell you about that. We tried the WIFI, it didn't work but we didn't care that much to ask for help! Finally the drive to Napa or Sonoma, a lovely 1 hour or so...Highly recommend you visit this property.

Beautiful views...some simple things could make it a 5 star rental
We loved the beautiful views from the deck. Here is our objective list of Pro's and Con's on the rental as well as some "tips":
-Amazing views of the coast
-Kitchen very well equipped. Lots of spices and pots/pans to use
-Bedrooms were a good size and comfy
-John the property manager was very responsive. We text about the propane tank showing it was low and he dropped off a new one the next day
-We were given exactly one white towel per person. With the jacuzzi & beach nearby, its not realistic to give people just one towel, especially when there are kids. To be fair, I sent John a text about this and he provided help on this on the 3rd day of our 5 day stay. Had I known, I would have asked sooner
-Owner really should consider giving access to the washer & dryer. We have traveled to many beach destinations around the world and its important to be able to wash. I hand washed (to the point of one of my hands peeling) because I didn’t even know there was a washer/dryer on-site
-Its not very safe to walk to the beach from this home. We asked this question when considering to rent and were told it is a “3 block walk”, which we were looking forward to as we like to walk. Maybe on a map its 3 actual streets, but the so called “blocks” are steep, curvy and there is truly no sidewalk for most of the walk, so you are on a narrow edge and hoping drivers are paying attention
-Even though the home is beautifully decorated with a beach theme, there is nothing in the home to use at the beach - towels, chairs, toys
-If you plan to cook most meals, definitely stop in one of the grocery stores in one of the bigger towns before getting off the highway. We ran into traffic and arrived later than expected, once we got to the house we realized how dark and windy the roads are to get there and didn’t want to venture far for food. The guys ended up at the nearest “grocery store” where they spent over $300 on some basic and even questionable (expiration dates) groceries, everything was way overpriced so it did not last long
-Bring whatever you think you will need for the beach
-Pack extra clothes, unless the owner starts providing access to the washer & dryer.
-The Beach Resort that is in the first page of the “Welcome binder” is closed for renovation
-Although we would have preferred to walk to the beach, parking in the Dillon beach lot is $10/day with in & out privileges
thank you for taking the time to write a review for Bella Oceana, we appreciate it. We are delighted to find out that you enjoyed your stay in the home. During our communication prior to your booking you did ask us about the walk to the beach and this is what we replied with "The walk to the beach is about 3-4 blocks downhill to a path on Kailua that leads down to the beach. There is a parking lot at the beach that charges $10 for a day use pass to park on thier lot." The roads within Oceana Marin are private roads, not public roads, they are well maintained and because there are no sidewalks there are signs posted and there is a security guard. WE have never had any type of problem with people walking on these roads and the number of vehicles that travel these roads is at a minimum. We did make you aware that this vacation rental does not provide beach equipment for personal use.
We thank you for your booking

We really enjoyed our stay in Dillon Beach. The views from the home were stunning and it was wonderful to hear the ocean while relaxing. The hot tub was a rare bit win (often they are not clean, not actually hot, or in weird areas) for vacation rentals so we really appreciated that as well!

Ocean Panorama in lovingly maintained house
The views and sounds of the cascading waves down below at Dillon Beach and the amazing sunsets would be hard to beat in another property. Home was spotless and cozy with fireplaces on 2 levels. The hot tub on the deck was an indulgent bonus to an already nice property . We were greeted by deer and quail in the mornings which was a treat! So much to do and see in this bio diverse area or just hang out at one of the great beaches in either direction . Would gladly stay here again!

Comfort, Views and All kids welcome including fur babies =)
Spent our family Christmas at this lovely home off the beautiful coast of California. A total of 5 wonderful days was enjoyed by our party of five. The owner, Linda and property manager, John were delightful and very accommodating. All responses were returned within hours which were always polite and courteous. The home was extremely comfortable and beautifully decorated. Plenty of room for all, especially with the extra seating from the bean bags (which we ended up purchasing some for our home). Spectacular views with abundant wildlife throughout the area that surrounded the home. Definitely will be back in the summer.
