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.

Wonderful house with beautiful views from any window

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for a family of five. Great game room downstairs with a beautiful pool table and nice hook up for music. Game room also has crab nets which we used to do some crabbing at Lawsons landing. Plenty of comfortable seating in the main living room. Teo nice decks. One deck we used to BBQ oysters we picked up at Hogs Island. Hope to be back next year.

This location, tho!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. The view is amazing. Deer all over the place. Seriously, it's gorgeous.

The kitchen was well stocked with about 5 different kinds of coffee makers, plenty of dishes, glassware, even a wine fridge! We didn't use the game room. It's in an unfinished basement, dark and cold,t too. I would also say that this house sleeps 4 adults very comfortably and another three kids on the bunk beds. I wouldn't want to sleep on the futon couch, although it's fine for sitting. We had to rewash the towels because they smelled (from not drying properly), but really no complaints. The location is great, short drive to the beach from this house or a loooong walk. I would recommend this place for a small group of adults or a large family.

Lovely home and great views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "Above and Beyond" was wonderful. The home has everything you could possibly need and the owner Joanne thought of everything. I had one question about using the DVD player and she responded to my call within minutes. The home was very clean, great towels and sheets, with a sweeping view of the ocean from Tomales Head to Bodega and beautiful sunsets.

I would return without any hesitation.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

This is a well maintained, clean, comfortable home that lives up to the name, Above and Beyond. The kitchen is exceptionally well stocked with all manner of cookware. Even assortments of tea and coffee are available for guests. The house is located at the top of a quiet cul de sac, with lovely ocean views. We hope to have the opportunity to stay here again.
