Why The Owner chose Dillon Beach

We chose Dillon Beach and this house because of it's unhurried, friendly, easy relaxed feel and the great views of incoming waves from the house & the expansive ocean panorama. After about a year working on weekends, the house has been renovated into a comfortable retreat with new furnishings.

The area is relatively undiscovered and far enough off busy Hwy 1 not to be touristy like Stinson Beach or other beach towns full of cars and traffic and it's only about a 1 hour drive from San Francisco. Surrounded by a pristine natural coastline and trails, it's an incredibly relaxing and easy escape from the city and hot Sacramento summers. The sunsets over the ocean and star filled night skies are amazing too. The cool nights and sound of the crashing waves make for an incredibly deep night's sleep as well.

We regularly stay at the beach house when it isn't rented and are continually making sure everything is in order, stocked up and maintained.

What makes this house unique

Staying at the beach is magical - picnics, sandcastles, body surfing and uncomplicated fun. It's a chance to slow down, relax and be together to relish life for a few days and relive fond memories of going to the beach as a kid.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What can we say - this was a most beautiful stay, made more memorable by the incredible view, the tasteful aesthetic of the decor, and the spirit of so many happy and thoughtful visitors who have stayed in your lovely home. A wonderful and restful, peaceful respite for the aches of the world not too distant (sadly) - It is very important to know there are such places as this!

Beautiful place, would recommend to anyone!

  • 4 of 5

This place was among the cleanest vacation homes we have enjoyed. Our hats are off to the housekeeper(s). The internet service was excellent; the view was spectacular; and we could not have asked for better weather. We would have given this place five stars except for the fact that we had to makeshift a broiler pan, and we did a lot of cooking. If you dine out, this place is perfect. If you cook here, it's excellent, just short of perfect. We would stay here again!

Beautiful cozy home, fully equipped for comfort and joy

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house with stunning views of the ocean is so comfortable. We really didn't want to leave! Our weather in February was a mix of sunshine, wind, and overcast skies- all of it beautiful. Our group of 5 women just loved hanging out in this wonderful home, with it's very well equipped kitchen. We ate all of our meals in and couldn't have been happier. Thank you for offering up this gem of a home as a rental!

Magnificent property. Excellent experience.

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and has a spectacular view. The beds are comfortable and all of the common spaces were nicely appointed. Plenty of pots and pans and everything needed. It was perfect for my birthday celebration. I would not have changed a thing. Would come back to this house in a heartbeat. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous home with us.

Lovely house, comfortable with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house with beautiful bay views. Well stocked kitchen. Good beds and showers. Nicely and simply decorated. Quiet.

A few suggestions: a good bread knife, a few more shelves in the bathroom for storing shampoo, toothpaste, etc.

Altogether we had an excellent stay.
