Property description

Welcome Retreat sits on a bluff overlooking the panoramic sweep of the ocean waves breaking on the over a mile of sandy beach protected by dunes. On a weekend you will see surfers, windsurfers, and kite boarders mastering the waves. Across the ocean inlet stands the long peninsula Pt. Reyes National Park where herds of tule elk roam.

We consider Welcome Retreat a gift of God which we delight in sharing with those who come to enjoy it. It provides a place of serenity, peace, joy, laughter, fun, sharing with family and friends, or a place to cozy up with a book around the fireplace.

The large master bedroom upstairs with its own bathroom and king sized bed provides great rest with Tempurpedic mattress. The upstairs sunroom off the Master Bedroom with its own bath allows for private extra sleeping space on 2 queen sized futons. Separate living spaces allow individual down-time when families share accommodations together. Each of the downstairs bedrooms has a queen sized bed.

The large Circular living room and couch provides a great place for families to visit. The kitchen is very well equipped. Every living space has an ocean view. There is a separate dining room off the kitchen with a large table. Or, eat in the downstairs sunroom with ocean and beach surrounding and the view of the national park.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1987

About the owner: I'm a father, grandfather and Christian clinical psychologist and author. My wife had a career in human resources and now works with me as we do couples counseling work for people in Christian ministry.

Why the Owner Chose Dillon Beach, CA, USA:
We love the sights and sounds of the ocean in all its moods and its sunsets. It sits high on a bluff and the sandy beach curves around the ocean to the bay with dunes. It's easily accessible from the Bay Area, but has the feel of the pastoral countryside of England, Ireland or Scotland.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You'll be staying in a unique, and we think delightful home with a redwood panneled circular living room and windows with a panoramic veiw of the beach and ocean. There is a second story of windows over the living room, supported by a ceiling tha slopes upward toward the middle. Also, we are novel readers, so stock the baskets with great books. Happy page turning!
