Description of our home and its location:
The cozy cottage is in the heart of the Dillon Beach village. It is walking distance from the beach (only 200 steps from the sand), the small store. The pier is also a walkable distance from our home (maybe 2 miles?). Individuals of all ages would be comfortable walking to the beach from this location.
We've raised our kids vacationing here and we have found it to be a more comfortable beach area because there is only one road in and one road out.
This house was built in 1915 and has wonderful charming characteristics, but was also updated, through the years, for comfort.
The kitchen has a self cleaning propane range/oven, microwave, coffee maker with an espresso machine, toaster, electric griddle, 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. This is important to me while vacationing because whomever is in the kitchen is not missing out in the fun.
The living room has comfortable couches and a 42' flat screen TV. We have also provided a DVD player and stereo with CD and an Ipod doc. This living room, dining room, kitchen combination is a very warm and comfortable space 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. 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).
There are two bedrooms upstairs. Both bedrooms have comfortable queen mattresses and 4 pillows per bed. One bedroom has a dresser for your personal belongings, and the other room has a closet as well as several hooks.
The upstairs bedrooms have views of the ocean.
Upstairs is also where the full bathroom (toilet, sink & shower) is located and there is a 'powder room' (toilet & sink) downstairs.
This home has a private, 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, and a table with 6 outdoor chairs.
We generally do our barbecuing on the driveway, it's closer to the kitchen.
Our home is set up for fun and relaxation. We have a small front porch where we enjoy visiting with neighbors & sitting and watching the sunset. 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 at 916-606-8009
This home was purchased in October of 2009 by 2 families and one owner recently sold her 1/2 to siblings of the other owner, whom have all grown up visiting Dillon Beach. The family started coming to Dillon Beach when their great grandmother asked the milkman where he was going for his summer vacation (70+ years ago) and he said 'PARADISE'. The Great grandma got the directions, and it has become a family tradition passed down through 4 generations. The three 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, comfortable rental. This was based on our rental experiences here in Dillon Beach, in the past 40+ years. 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 at 916-606-8009 chose Dillon Beach
The families and their children wanted to have a home at the beach for themselves that suit 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, free wi-fi, having a land line, television, games, DVD selection, stereo system, books, magazines, a good coffee pot. We also provide and having linens, comfortable beds and seating inside and out. Our home meets all of this criteria, for us as well as you. I have been renting our home through vrbo for the past 9 years however, vrbo has made many changes recently. Because I was not booking guests through the site this last year, vrbo took it upon themselves to 'hide' me and place me at the bottom, I am determined to learn how to accommodate my guests through the site and do the transaction all online. Our prices are fare and there are no hidden costs. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Leslee

My best friends & I had a fabulous girl’s getaway!! The house was cozy & cute- we loved it.
Darling house, right near the beach. A great weekend getaway place for my five best friends & I. We will definitely stay here again.
The house was a great place to land. A perfect location for slowing down and doing very little. All the rooms are comfortable and the house is quite roomy and light filled. The kitchen is easy and well equipped. I particularly appreciated the option of saving money by cleaning up after ourselves. We will definitely return!
Wonderful Relaxing Dillon Retreat!!
Thank you so much Leslee for your hospitality!!! As always we had a wonderful time and look forward to returning to your beautiful place.
All Activities Listed Are Available Within Surrounding Areas.
As requested, we've 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 popular areas for visitors. You can find great golfing, fishing, 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 or Occidental.
Tomales, which is the closest town has 2 small churches, a grocery store, deli and a restaurant.
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. Kayaking and hiking are also popular in the area. Nick's cove is where you can purchase fresh oysters from Hog's Island. Petaluma is just 30 minutes away. They have some wonderful restaurants as well as boutiques and shops. It is the home of Laganitas beer and some delicious cheeses. You can also find an 'Outlet' mall, if you so desire.
If you are willing to drive a little further, there's Napa Valley and Sonoma where wine tasting is popular.
The surrounding areas to Dillon Beach make for a 'must see' in California. The scenic drives are breathtaking (especially in the Spring, Fall and Winter).

Additional information about rental rates
Dear potential guests, Things have changed after several years of working with my guests through the 'vacation rental' web site. I have been forced to comply with their rules and now have a new VRBO number and can be found on a few more sites. Please note the following: Note: We have recently changed our VRBO number. Please go to: 4945617ha where you will see all the specifics. We do expect our guests to leave our home as they found it. We do charge a 'pet fee' of $15.00 per pet per night. I also charge a $100.00 cleaning fee and we only do our rental transaction through the new site. Many of you will find the new format much simpler, there are just more fees.... If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thank you for your consideration in renting our home. Sincerely, Leslee (Our Cozy Cottage)
