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 Dillon Beach

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.

Enjoyable, Pleasant, Peaceful Vacation

  • 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. : )

Quiet, clean getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well equipped with everything we needed, walking distance to the beach and comfortable for our family of four (plus our small dog). Thanks for the fun stay at Dillon Beach! As a bonus, there was a family of deer that visited the yard every morning!

A good time was had by all...

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay, bringing our 3 children, all 18+ years old, and dog with us. We were snug, but comfortable. The cabin is a short walk from the beach. Its not flashy or luxurious, but is fully functional with a fully equipped kitchen and gas bbq. It has WiFi, Direct TV and a bunch of DVDs for movie time at night. I would return there again.

The owner great to work with and quickly responded to my to my questions.

We loved our weekend get away

  • 5 of 5

The house was very comfortable for all 6 of us and our 2 dogs. It took us a while to find our way to the beach, but, once we got there it was wonderful! It was a nice15 minute walk with the baby in a wagon. We saw a lot of deer and turkey. It was a very relaxing weekend and we all enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and very well kept.

Very Comfy Home with Great Common Area

  • 5 of 5

My five-year-old daughter and I had a terrific stay over Memorial Day weekend. The home was very comfortable and spacious for two, and would have easily fit a couple more. The highlight was the open upstairs common space where the living room with fireplace and three couches/large chairs blends into the dining table and into the kitchen. Very airy but also homey. The downstairs bedrooms are a bit more enclosed and dark, but for that reason good for sleeping. We spent most of our time upstairs (when we weren't out). The kitchen had everything we needed. The home was very clean and a little rustic, like the windswept town. It is well-situated, on the edge of "town" so there's a little more space than a couple blocks away where the small homes abut each other. We road our bikes through "town" and down to the beach and beyond to the dunes. The owner was very prompt in responding to the one small issue we had with the dishwasher. We'd highly recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive review of my Dillon Beach house. I just spent an enjoyable week out there - and escaped the week- long heat wave in Marin, Sacramento, etc.. I also like the open upstairs common space- great for reading, chatting with friends and overall relaxing. Mary, owner

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.
