About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This cozy cottage is in the heart of the Dillon Beach village. It is walking distance from the beach (only 200 steps from the sand). Individuals of all ages would be comfortable walking to the beach from this location.

This house was built in 1915 and has wonderful charming characteristics, but was also updated in the Winter of 2009 for your comfort. The kitchen has a self cleaning propane range/oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, electric grill, crock pot, electric mixer, blender, and even a nice large stock pot for soups and chili. I think you will find what you need in this well stocked kitchen for preparing delicious meals. The kitchen is part of the living room as well as the dining room. The living room has a comfortable couches and a 42' flat screen TV (with cable). We have also provided a DVD player and stereo with CD and an Ipod doc. This living room, dining room, kitchen combination is very warm and comfortable for family and friends.

This home also has a bonus room which is great for kids of all ages. It has 2 twin beds (daybed/trundle), a 37' flat screen t.v.(no cable in this room) used for video games, and to play DVDs., There's also a game table and chairs, a small library which includes books and a selection of magazines (which we try to keep 'fairly' current).

The two upstairs bedrooms each have characteristics of their own. Both have comfortable queen mattresses and 4 pillows per bed for sitting up and enjoying the view while reading. The 'White room' has a refreshing 'beach' theme to it. The 'brown room' has a warm, simple more modern feel to it as well as a unique corner closet. Both rooms have dressers for your personal belongings as well as several hooks. The upstairs bedrooms have views of the ocean.

The upstairs is where the full bathroom is located and there is an easy access 'powder room' downstairs.

This home has an enclosed yard. The yard is ok for kids and a small pet. It also has a nice view of the hills.

We do provide a propane barbecue for your convenience.

Our home is set up for fun and relaxation. We have a small front porch where we enjoy sitting and watching the sun set and it has a unique view of the ocean. Within the home, we have provided several board games, puzzles, DVD's (family friendly selection), CD/Ipod doc for your music, books and magazines. This home has been designed for a family or a group of friends, maximum 6, to spend a fun, relaxing, time together.

About Leslee (vrbo has an auto decline, please email me directly). Thank you!

This home was purchased in October of 2009 by 2 families who have grown up visiting Dillon Beach.

One family has shared a 'family home' for many years at this beach and decided they wanted a place of her own.

The other family started coming to Dillon Beach when their grandmother asked the milkman where he was going for his summer vacation (70+ years ago) and he said 'paradise'. Grandma got the directions, and it has become a family tradition passed down through the generations.

Both families wanted their own little piece of paradise. This was made possible by doing it together.

We've tried to provide all the amenities that we look for in a quality rental. This was based on our rental experience here in Dillon Beach. We have been in over 30+ homes here in the village. Our experiences have made us very aware of the needs of our guests. We hope our guests will find the the comforts of home with the beach 200 steps away.

It's perfect for family and friends who just want to relax.

Why Leslee (vrbo has an auto decline, please email me directly). Thank you! chose San Francisco Bay Area

The partners and their children wanted to have a home at the beach for themselves that suits their needs as well as share it with others. Dillon Beach is where they have spent many wonderful summers with their individual families. It has become a tradition that they wanted to have ownership in. They have fond, wonderful memories and wanted to add to those.

When deciding the amenities they wanted to have and provide, the owners used their past rental experiences at the beach and tried to include everything they desired in a 'Dillon Beach' rental.

Guests will find it clean, accommodating, and relaxing.

What makes this house unique

We look at this destination as a 'true vacation'. Dillon beach is such a lovely place, we have been known to drive in and stay for two weeks with out getting back in our car. This has been a wonderful place for annual family reunions. Our family has been known to rent up to 14 houses at one time, in the village. There is only 1 road in and out of the Dillon Beach area and the kids love the freedom of running back and forth to visit other family members. This is truly a relaxing, family destination.

Because of our experiences as renters, we know the importance of a well stocked kitchen, having a land line, television, games, DVD selection, stereo system, books, magazines, and having linens provided as well as comfortable beds and seating inside and out. Our home meets all of this criteria, for us as well as you.

Can't get there enough!

  • 5 of 5

I am one of the owners. This summer has been so busy and with the hot weather in the valley we have had several last minute requests. I had to schedule myself in to do a follow up. I went there for 24 hours to do some housekeeping and set up for today's guests. The weather was beautiful and I can never get enough of paradise.

An awesome house above the beach. A short walk down the hill to a very large sandy beach with rock formations to the right and sand dunes to the left. I have walked many miles on this beach. The house is very nice, well equipped with everything you will need and also very nicely appointed! The owner is wonderful, she is gracious, communicative and very caring. She obviously goes out of her way to make your stay the best. We have stayed at the cozy cottage over labor day weekend six years in a row. We enjoy the house and beach very much!

We love LML Cozy Cottage! This was our second visit, this time with 2 kids and 2 dogs. (Dillon beach is very dog friendly) The home is very comfortable with great furnishings and everything you might need. There is lots of room to spread out...Game room is great for kids and teens. Such a quick walk down to the beach tops off the whole trip! Whenever we want a trip to Dillon Beach, this will be our spot! Thanks again for sharing your home!

Thank you for sharing your beach home. We had an epic time. You have thought of everything in your beach home which made it so comfortable. And the distance from the beach was really just minutes away, and a perfect little walk. The little market and cafe was even closer, we could not think of anything that we wished we had or that was closer to the beach house. THANK YOU AGAIN!!!!

A Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such fun at LML's cottage at Dillon Beach in early November. The house has everything you'd want or need, comfortable and clean. It is only a 3 minute walk down to the beach, which is truly a scenic beach. Part sand, part dunes and cliffs, and a good collection of haystack rocks on the north end. We found the kitchen well-stocked with spices, staples for cooking, and many sauces and condiments already there in the fridge. Pots and pans in all sizes for you chefs as well. We didn't get cellphone reception or much success with the wi-fi system they have, but that's not why we came to the beach! We had a group of six: 2 toddlers and 4 adults. There were good beds and bedrooms for all, plus two baths. We especially appreciated the "playroom" for the kids and all their stuff. The owner very kindly left a lovely hospitality basket for us at the beginning of our stay. There were other loving touches throughout the house as well which we really enjoyed. If you stay here, get out and enjoy Tomales and some of the other little beachfront communities nearby, plus Pt. Reyes and the beautiful Tomales Bay.

Best kept Dillon Beach secret

  • 5 of 5


I we just want to say ttat we have stayed in many Dillon Beach properties over the last 20

years. This is by far the best. This is our third year at this house and plan to return often. It is

cozy, very comfortable, kitchen is well stocked and this year they added an outdoor grill. The furnishings are really nice and each bedroom has its own charm. There is internet access. There is also a great place down stairs that has a trundle bed and was great for our girls. They just loved having'their own space. It has a fenced yard for our dog and parking along side house as well as'outside of house. Another wonderful detail, is that it is soooooo close to the beach for sunning,

surfing and swimming. We look so forward to visiting this great space. The owners are attentive and very helpful as well as always available. It shows that they are proud of their house and should be as

it provides everythung one needs for a great beach stay.

All Activities Listed Are Available Within Surrounding Areas.

As requested, only listed places of interest within 15 minutes, however this is a wonderful area to explore.

Bodga Bay as well as the town of Bodega are quaint areas. You can find great golfing, fun beaches as well as a little market with fresh baked pies and home made chowders (free samples).

We also enjoy the bakery in Freestone, which is on the way to the town of Sebastipol.

Tomales, which is the closest town has 2 small churches, a grocery store, deli and a restaurant with a bar.

Point Reyes is a wonderful place to visit and you won't want to miss seeing the light house. Just be careful of flying hats. It is a bit windy.

Close to Nick's cove is where you can purchase some fresh oysters.

There's always Petaluma just 30 minutes away. They have some wonderful restaurants as well as shops. You can also find an 'Outlet' mall, if you so desire.

If you are willing to drive a little further, you are close to Napa Valley and Sonoma where you can do some wine tasting.

The surrounding areas to Dillon Beach make for a 'must see' in California. The scenic drives are a wonderful form of entertainment.
