The Pirate's Cove sits high on a bluff and offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay and Bodega Bay. Watch the deer roam the neighborhood and the hawks soar. This is the perfect house for large family gatherings. The kitchen and dining area are very expansive and can handle large parties. You can enjoy incredible sunsets from the kitchen or the dining room table. The sun room is a fantastic place to relax and read a book or bring out the board games and enjoy the views. This home has views of the ocean from the living room, kitchen, dining room, sun room and master bedroom. The back yard is fenced with a BBQ, a hot tub, patio area, picnic area and stainless steel sinks. This 3 bedroom 2 bath home has something for everyone in the family. There is an abundance of wildlife at Dillon Beach. Just a 1 minute drive to the beach or a short walk down the hill.
The Dillon Beach general store is close for your shopping needs. The Dillon Beach Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you want to venture out you can travel to Pt. Reyes and get Oysters from the world famous oyster farmers in Marshall known as Hog Island Oyster Co. or Tomales Bay Oysters. Nick's Cove, is just a 5 minute drive from Dillon Beach and has been featured on Travel and in Sunset Magazine.
My family has vacationed at Dillon Beach for the last 27 years and we love it. My father loved the salmon and halibut fishing, my husband the golf, my son the beach and I love the relaxing atmosphere Dillon Beach provided.
Shiela Avakian purchased this house in 1995
We purchased this home in Dillon Beach because we love the tranquility and peacefulness that we experience when we are there. There is an abundance of wildlife around to view from the house including deer that roam the neighborhood. You can relax when you want, but you are still close to the big city. You can take day trips to Napa Valley, Sonoma, and the Russian River. We are close to Petaluma, Bodega Bay, Marshall, Occidental, Sebastapol, Jenner, Point Reyes, Tomales Bay, Marin, Guerveville, and the Muir Woods.
Dillon Beach has a great beach that is still pet friendly. You can enjoy the miles of sandy beaches or explore the tide pools and rock cliffs. We are 60 miles north of San Francisco and 45 minutes from the Wine Country. There is great fishing, surfing, beach combing, boogie boarding, clamming, crabing, hiking, biking, whale watching and golfing available.
This was a very relaxing trip. The house was big enough for everybody to have their own space and enjoy our family reunion. The beach was beautiful. We enjoyed the deer wondering through the neighborhoods and the wildlife that we were able to observe. We especially liked the fenced backyard for the kids. The kitchen was large and capable of handling all our cooks. We had a great time and can't wait to come back next year.
We had an awesome stay at Pirate's Cove. The house accommodated our big group very comfortably — the kitchen and dining area in particular is enormous, and can easily fit everyone for cooking, hanging out and eating. The views from the dining room are awesome! We walked to the beach one day — about a 15 minute walk down the hill — and spent the morning in the sun. The hot tub was the perfect way to end the afternoon, too. To top it off, Shiela was incredibly accommodating and kind — even answering phone calls while we were there to answer any questions we might have about the house. Overall, a truly awesome experience. So glad we did it!
We rented this incredible house for a Fathers Day family reunion. We selected this property because it was large enough to handle our family comfortably. Upon our arrival we found a spacious, clean well-maintained home and property to be ready for our immediate use, and everything you could ask for in a vacation rental.
After a day of beautiful walks on the beach, the kids flew kites, while the adults enjoyed a warm and wonderful hot tub in the privacy of a fenced back yard. Great views, the view of the bay was spectacular. In addition to some fun fishing, we found a golf coarse close by, while some of our party discovered several quaint towns with little antique shops, nestled in nearby areas.
We found the kitchen to be large enough to handle all our cooks. The double oven and huge cook top came in very handy as did the BBQ in the back yard. We have never rented a house with all the kitchen and cooking supplies that this home had. We were able to have sit down dinners for 12 with no problems.
The sleeping accommodations were over the top, plenty of privacy for everyone. There were amble beds, bedding, linens, and towels.
Overall this is a fabulous home. One that shows a lot of owner care and pride. It is a great home for extended families and groups of friends.. We had a very relaxing trip and our family hopes to be able revisit this paradise!
This home was large enough to handle our family comfortably. . The kitchen was very well stocked and we have never rented a house with all the kitchen and cooking supplies that this home had. We were able to have a sit down dinner for 12 with no problem. We really enjoyed our time at the beach and the restful atmosphere that Dillon Beach provides.
The spacious house is immaculate as is the whole property. There were 12 of us--adults and kids--and there was plenty of room. The spacious kitchen is open to the large dining area. Accommodations are very comfortable. The view of the bay is spectacular.
In addition to fishing, hiking, camping or just laying on the beach one can make the easy drive south to San Francisco or northeast to the wine country or drive north or south along the beautiful, scenic coast. There are several quaint towns with little antique shops, nestled to nearby areas, to go "antiquing." Our vacation was most restful and relaxing due to our stay in this house. We would recommend it to everyone.
Great place to kick back, great views and short or long walks, golf close by. nice day trips. Relaxing hot tub. Very nice place I want to be there right now.
