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.

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.

Very nice property. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a group of 11 for a family reunion in Oct. House is awesome!

Beautiful, well equipped kitchen. Superb AV setup for movies etc. we enjoyed watching the cows and deer in the pasture just beyond the yard. Nearby beach (5 minute drive) is a dog friendly paradise. Beach parking is a little steep at $10, though. Overall we loved the location and will probably return.

Highly recommended! Property is clean, spacious and great for entertainment!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 12 spent 3 nights at the Sea Filly and we were highly impressed with the property. Our 6 kids had plenty of space to run and play. They watched movies on the big screen each night in the reclining chairs and played foosball and pool. The house

and kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We ate dinner and played board games on the farmhouse table that was able to comfortably seat all of us. We really appreciated the oversized 2 washers and 2 dryers. The rooms were spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were all unanimous that it was the best VRBO property we had stayed.
