About mary spire

'Hawks Hollow', home of a musician, artist and therapist, is a relaxing and peaceful place to be. The house is clean, comfortable and ideal for any occasion.

mary spire purchased this house in 2001

Why mary spire chose San Francisco Bay Area

I love nature, the sea, ocean breezes.

My house is a short walk to the beach where I can take my 2 labs to run and play. Dogs are allowed off leash, if they are under your control. I find it very invigorating and yet soothing to stay here- very relaxing and enjoyable.

What makes this house unique

The quiet of the area is especially important to me- I am free to relax, think, create and have quality down time- no pressures from the outside world. It's an oasis!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is really wonderful: fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furnishings, short walk to the beach. With the open living/dining room set up, we could entertain our guests while we prepared our meals. The smell and sounds of the ocean were an added bonus. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean, seagulls and other birds and watching a family of deer wander around on the property were amazing! - and added to the overall ambience of this house. I highly recommend this place for a weekend get away or a longer visit.

  • 5 of 5

'Hawks Hollow' is such a wonderful place! You get to see plenty of wildlife such as turkeys, deer, wildcats, and cows. You can walk to the beach in approx. 10 min. The beach house was clean and well maintained. Love that the kitchen had what we needed for cooking. We would definitely like to stay at this beach house again. : )

Beautiful little home truly minutes from the beach and with all the necessities . Wishing you'd add a hot tub to the deck (dream). We were quite comfortable and look forward to a return visit! Thank you so much and happy new year !

Terrific house in the village

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at this particular Dillon Beach rental. We've been going to Dillon Beach for decades and have been renting houses there for the last 5 years. We find this house especially comfortable because it has a lot of seating in the living room. It's also nice to sit on the balcony outside of the living room in good weather. The house is centrally located, about 5 or so minutes walk down hill to the beach. There's also internet at this house now, which was a great surprise to us. Our AT&T cell phones don't work there but Wi-Fi calling did work. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need to cook standard meals. We bring our large dogs to this house with us. As with most houses in Dillon Beach the house is not fenced;however, it's not a big deal for us to bring the dogs outside on a leash. Thanks for letting us rent the house again

not up to par

  • 5 of 5

We had a good time at Dillon beach, but the ad for the house is miss leading. Beach is great. The house was not up to the ad description. House had no ocean view, smelled very musty that we had to get air freshener for this and had a broken sliding screen in the bedroom. Screen was old and rusty, so probably has been that way awhile. So, I do not think this house was recently updated. I expect to get my full damage refund, because we left the place better than when we came. Thank you.

Owner's Response: thank you for the info about the sliding door. I shall have it replaced next week. By the way, in case you didn't know- The cleaning service reported, after you left:" Someone puked all over the bedding in the master bedroom. Yuck.The garbage and recycling was over flowing with the wrong things in the wrong cans." Not OK. I keep the house in excellent condition- it is always clean and ready for guests. I had to pay extra to have all the linen washed after you left. Please re-read the rental agreement which outlines my guest policy, including the garbage and recycle cans.

GREAT beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A long time friend and I spent a week at this cottage. It was quiet, comfortable, clean, and well stocked. The beds were great!!! The pictures tell the story - nothing hidden or making for a surprise. The kitchen is well stocked w/utensils and necessities. I liked the fact that a key wasn't necessary - the door comes equipped w/a code. Parking by the front door was great for unloading and loading. The cable TV worked just fine.

Of course, the weather was, for the most part, cloudy and foggy. This is natural during the summer when the temperatures inland are high. I found it a wonderful relief! The house is situated at the beginning of a lovely neighborhood, making for a nice walk up and down. It is close to the beach, very walkable. If you choose to drive instead, the parking is $8 per day. The beach is beautiful, pup-friendly, and not too crowded. One can walk quite a way in both directions.

It was nice seeing groups of deer close by, as well as wild turkeys. As far as restaurants, we spent a fair time driving to other close-by towns. If in Dillon beach, go to the Parkside Café - they serve delicious fresh seafood! In Sonoma, we ate twice at the Plaza Bistro - absolutely yummy! Don't bother w/Lucas' Wharf in Bodega Bay - very ordinary. I would also suggest that one stock up on food - there is no large grocery nearby.

I would definitely come here again, should I be in the area - the cottage is a winner!!!

Car: recommended

There are many things to do in and around Dillon-the obvious one is walking on the two mile, long sandy beach( dogs allowed off leash). I especially enjoy hiking at Point Reyes National Seashore and swimming in the ocean at Dillon Beach( wet suit recommended). Another fun thing to do is to hang out in the town of Tomales ( 4 miles east of Dillon) where you will find a nice antique store, a general store, post office and many good places to eat. I especially enjoy and recommend K&A Take Away on Dillon Beach road and the Tomales Deli And Café on Highway 1. The oldest saloon in California is the William Tell Saloon: it is a friendly place where many locals go to drink and eat- it has a full bar and excellent food, including oysters- in the restaurant.
