About The Owner

We've been married for 8 years and have four children. We both work hard during the week and like to relax and have fun on the weekend.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Dillon Beach

My wife and I have been vacationing in Bodega Bay for several years and when we found Dillon Beach it was like a slice of heaven. Our dream was to locate to a beach home in the San Diego area but when we found this property so close to home we fell in love. We frequently visit our property which quickly has become a popular vacation rental and love the various travelers that come from all over to share our home.

What makes this house unique

The home is so so quiet and beautiful. Having open land to the left and back of the house allows us to see a lot of wildlife such as fox, deer & quail. We love the sound of the ocean as we stand on the front and back decks. From the front deck you can see views of Bodega Head and watch the boats going out fishing/crabbing. One thing we really love is going to the surround towns to look at antiques and wine tasting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was so relaxing and beautiful, I hope to visit it again next year

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

With all the vacation rentals out there, it's difficult to know if you've chosen a good house, with a good owner, I am happy to say that I chose wisely! The house was adorable, well furnished and the owner was very responsive and helpful! I would highly recommend this house for a family! They even had a fully stocked game closet, which we loved!

A Shore Thing was even better than advertised! Generally, photos of places seem to look better than the actual place does once you arrive. Not here - the pictures didn't do it justice. View was amazing. House was spotless. Family room and kitchen very large and plenty of comfortable seating. Lots of electronics available. They even have some DVDs handy. Game closet is full of most everything you can think of.

Chad was incredibly responsive. He confirmed details with me a day or two in advance and answered my questions within about 15 minutes. When we were checking out we had a little trouble with one of the locks. Sent Chad a quick note and he got back to me almost immediately!

Highly recommend and will definitely stay here again!
