Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Above and Beyond is a two story home in the Oceana Marin subdivision in the quaint little town of Dillon Beach.

The home is situated at the end of a level cul de sac yet up high enough to offer amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay, Point Reyes Peninsula and Bodega Head. Our goal is to offer a 'home away from home' experience to relax, play games, watch movies, cook or BBQ your favorite family recipes (or try new local dishes!) and simply to create memories that will last a lifetime!

Whether at home, outdoors or at one of the many local attractions, there is something for everybody!

About Ms. Galati- Owner

Phil and Joanne have been married since 1987. We have a daughter and a son both in their twenties- we are not quite empty nesters but consider having a vacation rental part of our next 'season' of life together. We both grew up near the ocean and love the climate and relaxed atmosphere of the northern California coast. We live now in the Sierra foothills where we get the hot, dry summers so really enjoy the cooler coastal weather. We love sharing our home on the coast and consider it a blessing and a privilege to do so.

Ms. Galati- Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Ms. Galati- Owner chose Dillon Beach

With our family and friends we have rented homes in this area of the coast many times since 1998. We have many fond memories of each of the visits. We wanted to have a more permanent home to visit ourselves and to offer others the enjoyment of the coastal climate and activities that we have enjoyed so so much in the past

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that one can enjoy the ocean breezes and wonderful views even if you never feel like leaving the home. Perfect for a cozy weekend reading a book or playing games by the fire. We love to pick up some fresh oysters to BBQ on the deck and hike out along the beach or the trails that start from the top of Oceana....

**We are participants in Marin County's Clean Energy Deep Green Program, which provides you with 100% clean, renewable wind energy. We also installed solar July 2017 to cover most of the energy needs of our fully electric home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(youngster entry) This place is so cool. Our grandparents came and they loved it but had to leave early we stayed one more night. We loved your pool table and especially your foosball table.

Family fun in the sun.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at Above and Beyond despite the fact that most of the day it was cold and windy but there was a few hours of sun that the grand-kids could play at the beach and dig in the sand. The house is clean and comfortable with ocean views. A well stocked kitchen and a few spices. There is no grocery store at Dillon Beach so you may want to bring most of what you need for meals if you plan to cook at the house. Beds are on the firm side but comfortable. I would stay there again and probably will.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful panoramic views with a wall of windows looking out to the ocean and Tomales Bay! An amazing spot to just take a quick drive over to Bodega Bay for some amazing oysters just across from the Bodega Bay Marina at Spud point! Or take a quick drive up Highway 1 to Fort Ross Beautiful coast line drive. The countryside is full of farmlands or you can stop and get fresh eggs and even homemade jams! Don’t miss out on this great vacation Spot! We can’t wait to return, thanks Joanne

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are first time renters and could not have selected a more perfect home to stay at. The home is located in a great spot overlooking Dillon Beach and the ocean views were spectacular. We did not expect the house to be so well stocked with appliances and condiments, which made our stay very enjoyable. We met the owners on our arrival and they made us feel right at home. We would not hesitate to rent this home again next year.

Truly "Above and Beyond"

  • 5 of 5

This property was indeed Above and Beyond our expectations, and we had a wonderful stay! The views from the house are spectacular, and it was furnished with everything needed for a relaxing vacation! We especially enjoyed the proximity to the beach and Point Reyes National Seashore, with wonderful trails and views of seals, elk, and the lighthouse. We also enjoyed the local wildlife near the house, with daily deer sightings from the kitchen and dining room windows. The morning fog would usually burn off by noon, and we hope to return again some day.

It's the extra things that count!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at I don't even know how many houses and it's always the little things that make our stay so-so or above and beyond ;-) A stocked kitchen complete with a new sponge and fresh soap, toiletries and extra shampoo, plenty of towels and not to mention the Keurig! Teas, dishes, laundry supplies. Seriously everything you need to feel at home. The beds were INSANELY comfortable - the sheets to die for. Everything was extremely clean when we arrived. The view is the die for and having individual heating controls for each room and bathroom is extra nice. It's a very short drive to the beach where you can use the parking passes and walk down to the ocean. Use the path on the far left of the parking area at the end of Tahiti St. We will most defintely be going back. Thank you for making our stay above and beyond!!
