The kitchen has large island with additional seating gas cook-top and all modern conveniences including gourmet non stick cookware.

Three rooms have king-size beds, one room has two daybeds with pop-up trundles making into 2 king beds or 4 twin beds, the master closet also has one of these day beds. The sofa sections combine into larger than a king sized bed making a total of up to seven king-size sleeping surfaces or 10 separate comfortable mattresses. No one has to sleep on a sofa sleeper or futon. Luxurious linens, goose down pillows, and comforters are also provided.

The game room offers billiards, air hockey, foosball, darts, bar, and TV.

Deer and other wildlife are abundant in the area and can often be viewed from many rooms. There are miles and miles of hiking trails to interesting rock formations and hidden beaches with incredible views every step of the way.

Why Randy Knight chose Dillon Beach

We fell in love with Dillon Beach and searched for quite a while to find the right property. We knew in an instant this house was perfect for us the first time we saw it. It's huge and all of the rooms are very large, open and bright. The quality of construction and finishes are also far better than the vast majority of homes on the coast and the views are fantastic. Come enjoy our home. We're sure you will love it too!

What makes this house unique

The thing that sets this home apart from most is the spaciousness. It is perfect for any type of large group or family. We have several renters that come back on a regular basis for ladies groups; scrap booking; book clubs; seminar retreats and annual vacations. The huge living room and kitchen are perfect for entertaining and it is great to be able to seat 12 for dinner in the dining room.

Spacious home filled with entertainment galore!

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect escape from your hectic life! There is a huge gourmet kitchen filled with light where you have room for everyone to be part of creating a culinary adventure! A covered BBQ adjacent to the kitchen is so convenient and a huge farm table fills the dining room, able to seat the whole crowd comfortably! Our family especially loved the game room, complete with foosball, pool table and a giant projection tv! March Madness was awesome! Bedrooms are more than comfortable and spacious enough to make yourself at home. Families will really appreciate the green lawn surrounding the house where frisbees were flying! The hot tub soothed those sore muscle of the weekend warriors during a soft rain shower! Nobody wanted to leave at the end of our stay. Randy and Cheryl were so attentive to our needs and questions! You cannot beat the Sea Filly for a fun-filled getaway with breathtaking views of the Pacific!

We loved the location, view, well-stocked kitchen. It was wonderful. we would certainly stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. In addition to the above we really liked the location and comfortableness of the house. Two things I'd like suggest are if there could be directions on how to access the house touch pad. We had a bit of a time getting the key pad to light up. We also needed an updated code. We were very happy that Randy was so accessible and helpful. Lastly we couldn't get the oven or hot tub to heat up. All in all the house is terrific and we will certainly recommend the house for rent any time. Thanks again.

Good home for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had five adults, two toddlers, and a Boston Terrier for our week at Dillon Beach. This house was the right one for us. Cooked Thanksgiving dinner in large kitchen, watched sunrises over the meadow behind the house and sunsets over the water. Hiked the ranch land at the end of the street and frolicked on the beach.

Great for group stay

  • 4 of 5

The views are wonderful! The house is large with a beautiful master bedroom. Three other rooms are great places to sleep. We didn't use the game room due to mildew smell.

The kitchen is well stocked and great for large dinners.

All in all a great place.

a lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

The ocean view is relaxing. The second-floor deck and backyard were popular relaxing spots. The decor is lovely. Most of all the kitchen had everything we needed for a very demanding five-day menu.
