No telescope necessary! This house has expansive ocean views from large windows inside the house, as well as the open 700 square foot deck with glass panel railing just yards above the surf. To the north, Bodega Head is visible in the distance. To the west, you have full unobstructed views of the sun as it sets behind the horizon. To the south, the full length of Dillon Beach is in view, along with Tomales Point.
Our guests enjoy watching surfers catch a wave in the morning lineup and dog owners walking the beach as their pets run off leash. Those in the know have also enjoyed returning to the deck after dark to gaze at the constellations, when the Dillon sky on a clear night 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 flat two minute walk down the street to the marked beach trail, then another minute or two on the trail down to the sand. Once on the sand, you can hike the entire 2 mile length of Dillon Beach, visit Lawsons Landing Marina, explore the rocky tidal pools, or run your dog off leash on what is a rare legal spot to do so.
Beauty on the Beach is an older comfortable house, being updated both inside and out by newer owners. The large open floor plan is specifically designed to encourage interaction with family and friends, and the ocean is ever present. There are ocean views from almost every area of the home whether you are fixing a meal in the kitchen, playing pool in the entertainment area, or walking out of an upstairs bedroom.
The upstairs sleeping area has three bedrooms with two full baths. The balcony running the entire length of the second story is open to allow 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 is the entertainment area, which includes the open kitchen, dining area, fireplace conversation pit, and TV/Wet Bar area with pool table. A large sofa and pub table ensure there is seating for all to gather round. 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, there is free wireless internet service along with Dish Satellite TV. The smart TV has 250 channels, HBO, and Showtime, along with access to Pandora, Netflicks, etc. if you have an account. All bedding and limited number of towels are provided. 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.

About Dennis Ahearn
My wife an I were looking for a vacation home, and have friends who owned a home at Dillon. While visiting on several occasions we were struck by the awesome views, beach access, and small "beach town" feel.
Dennis Ahearn purchased this House in 2013
Why Dennis Ahearn chose Dillon Beach
Location, location, location. 2 minute walk to the beach trail, unobstructed beach and ocean view, and lots of potential for improvement both inside and out.
What makes this House unique
700 square foot deck with glass railing that spans the entire ocean side of the house directly over the bluff. Many homes claim to have an ocean view, but very few can deliver like the homes on the Kailua Way Bluffs. No rooftops, wires, or roads in the way to take away from the view of the beach, ocean, and marine life.

This property is amazing. Beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking supplies. The views are breathtaking. A very short walk gets you to Dillon Beach. We would absolutely come back to this property. Thank you Dennis.
Absolutely breathtaking...definitely a Beauty on the Beach!
The house is absolutely beautiful, this was my 2nd stay at Beauty on the Beach! I have it booked for 3 more stats this year...I don't believe I'll ever stay anywhere else when I need a relaxing getaway to the beach. The views are stunning in any type of weather and the home is so cozy and comfortable! The house has everything you need and is decorated so beautiful, the beds are so comfy too! Top line appliances, even enjoy cooking and doing dishes as you are surrounded by gorgeous views! The pool table is an extra bonus and a lot of fun! Would highly recommend this true Beauty on the Beach! Although I haven't personally met the owners, I can tell what wonderful people they are just by my correspondence with them. Thank you Dennis and Ava for sharing your Beauty on the Beach with us!
Beauty on the Beach was just perfect for our group's weekend getaway. The view is superb - just amazing really - you open the door from your room in the morning (after having been lulled to sleep by the rolling ocean waves the night before) to take in the vast Pacific with an ever changing panoramic of the westward sky, a true slice of the best of coastal Northern California!
We loved the deck (new glassed railing!) and the BBQ (worked great!) and had a great time playing pool and just hanging out, taking walks on the beach (easy access just a few doors down), and noshing on homemade food. One of us brought her gear and went fishing - we could see her down in the cove below from the deck!
All in all - just lovely! Thank you!
Dennis and his wife and visitor reviews represent their home very accurately!
Everything worked well. I have been renting at Dillon Beach for a long time and that is not always the case.
The view from the deck is fantastic. Internet was flawless for me and an abundance of TV channels. It was very nice playing pool with my daughter and racking them up to practice my shot. Stayed for a week. It was my wife and I only for four nights and we loved the size of the house, plenty of room to enjoy!!!
My two daughters came down for three nights and they want to do it again.
I was very happy with the bed I slept in which was in the master bedroom and that is very important to me.
If you like what you see on VRBO concerning this home, give it a shot, I think you will be happy with your choice.
This house was home away from home for a group of college friends celebrating 34 years of friendship. We made large dinners every night. The table was more than big enough. The deck is fantastic for coffee, wine, chatting. Five minute walk to the beautiful beach. Everyone was comfortable and happy. The interior photos do not do this home justice. It is very cute and beachy and we loved it.
Truly a Beauty on the Beach
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay on this beautiful home overlooking the Pacific. The house is perfect for 10 people! Our grandkids (and all of us!) enjoyed every bit of it...the pool table, games, outside BBQ, and walks to the beach to play. This home has been so accommodating for 6 - 10 people, and the owners are just wonderful to work with. The beds are super-comfortable, bathrooms are updated and so nice! And of course the kitchen is perfect for preparing great meals. The views are unmatched, from every room.
We hope to return again with other friends and family. Thank you Dennis & Ava!

Additional information about rental rates
The initial 350.00 payment is the amount of the refundable security deposit, plus the VRBO service fee. The service fee amount is determined by VRBO and based on a percentage of the total booking amount. The fee is imposed by VRBO and that portion of the payment goes directly to them and not the owners. The second payment is for the balance of the total rental, cleaning fee, pet fee if applicable, and mandatory Marin County Occupancy Tax.
