SOME SPRING OPENINGS W/ DISCOUNTS, BEACH HOUSE SLEEPS 12, VIEWS!!

Dillon Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 12)

We have great openings for April, book now. This can be a wonderful time of year at the beach! Come play in the beautiful area of Dillon Beach, on the Marin County Coast. Our vacation beach home sleeps 12 in 5 bedrooms. Views are gorgeous, area is awesome! We do book far ahead, so plan and book your visit soon.

Plan a longer get away - Book a week now for your reunion with your family in this beautiful and special place. You can make any date a special occasion in Dillon Beach!

We first found our home that way, my in-laws gave us all a week in this very house. We all coordinated our summer vacations, spent the spring planning the fun we would have, and then all gathered for a great family week of fun! We loved it so much, we bought the house!

Every season is beautiful at the coast, fog can surround you one minute, then sun the next. You never know what to expect, even in the next 10 minutes! Beautiful views and a family friendly house - You can't believe how quiet and beautiful it can be on the California Coast.

Come vacation in Dillon Beach! Our property sits atop a mountain overlooking the beautiful whitewater of the Pacific Ocean and to the other side, Tomales Bay, famous for Hog Island Oysters. Our Dillon Beach vacation property is on a corner at the top of the hill, with both bay and ocean views. From the great room, there are nearly 360 degrees of views.

The coast is just gorgeous no matter what time of year. The weather can be warm or cool, even in the same day! Fog or clear skies, you never really know, but it's all wonderful in our California Beach vacation rental home, Almost Paradise.

A huge deck comes off the kitchen, directly connected to the dining room. The deck has incredible views of the area, a BBQ, and space for quite a few people. Off the deck is a staircase leading to the fully fenced yard, fun for kids and Fido alike. Also on the lower level is a wonderful little hideaway, our greenhouse. You can sit and getaway from it all with a cup of tea, and kids love to dig in the dirt and explore all around.

We have plenty of parking which is usually quite a problem for folks in the Oceana Marin area of Dillon Beach. We can take 4 cars in our driveway, plus one in the garage.

We sleep up to 12 in our 5 bedroom home, with 3 full bathrooms. The house is very big, with most of it being taken up by the great room. We have Dish TV, a Wi-Fi network, DVD and VHS players and movies, and a wonderful library collection of books in almost every room.

This is one of the largest, and most beautiful vacation homes Dillon Beach has to offer. We extensively renovated the home in 2000, which marks our home as very modern and updated in contrast to many Dillon Beach vacation rentals you will find. Kitchen is a chef designed cooking heaven. There is an antique chopping block, microwave/convection oven, stove and a huge over-sized fridge with side freezer.

Walk along the hilltop to the end of the street for some of the best hiking in West Marin. Or head down the hill to spend the day at one of the best beaches in Northern California - the only dog friendly beach I know of, as well as the only one I know that will allow BarBQue's and fire pits. Watch fog roll into Bodega Head from this stunning Dillon Beach vacation rental!

Head down to the beach for a BBQ, and watch lovely sunsets. Walk along looking for seashells, bird watching, and just smelling the great ocean air. Dillon Beach is a magical place, come see why!

This home is really amazing and gorgeous! It was crafted to be a retirement dream home, so the house is really a step above a lot of the available homes here. Very comfortable and family friendly, the owners have 6 young grandchildren who often enjoy the beach house. It is also very easy to have a retreat or multi-generational gathering, plenty of room for all, plus most of the main living area is very accessible for anyone with disabilities.

We first stayed at Almost Paradise as renters, in the summer of 1999. Our family had always held a family reunion at Tahoe, but that year decided on the beach. It was love at first sight! We spent a lovely week, our first visit to Dillon Beach, and by the end of the week, we had decided to buy. We were living in Santa Rosa at the time, and continued to rent it out as a vacation rental. However, after a year, we decided to make the Beach House our permanent home. We moved out to Dillon in August 2000, and began renovating and remodeling in 2001. We lived there full time until 2006, when life brought us to Orange County. We now enjoy sharing our home again and hosting families, couples and groups in what we consider to be the most beautiful place on earth! We know you will enjoy your visit.

Lori purchased this house in 1999

Dillon Beach is a magical place. Many people have come here to heal from injury, bond with their families, and enjoy the beauty of Dillon Beach's landscape. There is indeed an energy that can be felt upon arrival, and when we visited this town for the first time years ago for a family reunion, we felt it, and decided to move here.

Almost Paradise is a comfortable family home, decorated with our collections of antiques, art, quilts and books. Yet, we are perfectly set up for kids and teenagers, as well as a corporate retreat group.

We encourage you to use our collection of dishes and glassware to enjoy a beautiful dining experience. Or, you can just as easily bring paper plates and still enjoy the beauty of the home.

Relaxing on top of a mountain overlooking the Bay and the ocean is an experience in and of itself. With an incredible beach just down the hill, leisurely walks in the neighborhood, and great hiking just a block away, this house serves the needs of all who enter.

There is enough room in the house for everyone to have their own space, or gather all together in the Great Room area or the deck. We even have a crazy 'Dr. Suess' stairway down to the lower level where there are 2 bedrooms, a full bathroom and a family room.

The home is a bit nicer than the photos! 3 adults and 3 kids stayed here for the weekend with our two dogs and had a blast. Room enough for everyone. The beach parking pass was great! Dillon beach is close to all sorts of things todo - bodega, tomales, point reyes. We were very pleased and will be back soon. Lori the owner, was great to work with and very accomodating.

Amazing House, Amazing View

I recently stayed at this house for a staff development retreat for our university organization. The house has more than enough space to comfortably accommodate a large group of 10-12. The expansive living room and kitchen worked well for the times we all had to meet as a group and when we had to take care of meal preparation. All over this part of the house are huge windows which give a spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding area, and make for pretty amazing sunsets. The bedrooms were quite comfortable, the bathrooms spacious, and there was more than enough outdoor space for our group to enjoy.

Though pretty secluded, there are several general stores down the hill and about a 10-minute drive east into the town of Tomales. There is ample space between houses in this neighborhood, which opens up the view of the ocean even more.

I highly recommend this property for a weekend or week-long stay. Utilize the beach pass! Our group unfortunately did not make time to trek down to the beach and that is definitely an opportunity we will not pass up if we have the chance to stay here again.

Great Family Getaway

We don't get very many opportunities to getaway but this was the perfect home for my wife, myself and our 4 children. We loved the huge living room that blended into the kitchen and eating area. The home was large enough for the 6 of us to spread out and relax and yet cozy enough for us to come together play board games and simply hang out together. The large deck was a nice spot in the afternoon to enjoy the sun while reading a good book.
We are thankful for your hospitality in allowing us to use your home while we made some great family memories.

Owner's Response: We love hearing about special times for families in our home. More people should plan pre-holiday getaways, they can be so very relaxing! We designed our kitchen to be able to have multiple cooks at the same time, and still be part of all the goings on. We would love to have you back anytime.

Our family loved this BEACH HOUSE! There was 6 of us and we all had our own bedrooms, which were very comfortable. Loved the large deck, view was beautiful. Loved the "Magic Garden" my granddaughter loved playing in. We named it Magic Garden. We were lucky to see a family of baby quails. 6 little babies! The deer were beautiful, a big papa deer would come and visit and rest in the yard next door. We watched him from the back deck. I loved the house because it sits on a corner in a court. We would fly kites in the court, and were safe from any incoming traffic. Lots of parking too, we parked a 16 foot boat, truck and 2 more cars in the driveway and one car in the garage! Loved the entry of the house with its little gate and cute, cute birdhouse. Loved the kitchen, and how it opened out to the deck. The Kitchen had an enormous counter top, very nice! The refrigerator was very big and very nice and could hold all the food we brought for the week. The kitchen table was big and sturdy and we all had fabulous meals at this wonderful table. Living room very comfortable seating with lots of lighting and tables. WiFi was great! TV was great. The master bedroom was awesome with its huge shower. There was plenty of hot water for everyone! We loved how you could go out to the deck from the two bedrooms, we slept with the patio door opened, lots of fresh sea air! Lots of clean linen, washer and dryer on site and used by us daily! Loved the downstairs, two bedrooms were very comfortable, loved watching VCR movies with my granddaughter and sitting at the little chairs and table provided for the little ones. Olivia my granddaughter loved all the stuff animals and toys! She loved to go up and down the stairs. It was nice that the door could be closed from the down stairs area too. Heaters worked wonderfully, we were all cozy and warm. The Beach Pass was a nice addition too. The home owner very, very nice and accommodating. It is such a pleasure staying at "It's Almost Paradise" It was "Total Paradise" for our family, we will definitely be back Thank you!

Owner's Response: We just love it when families enjoy the same things we do about our home. The beauty of the area, the views, and the wildlife are some of our favorites, too. So glad you enjoyed your week, we look forward to having you again.

Dillon Beach is a beautiful Dog Friendly Beach, and no leashes are needed at water's edge. You can have fires on the beach which is not allowed elsewhere. There are great rocks to climb at the shoreline, and tide pools to explore as well. We provide a free beach pass for our renter's use. Have fun exploring the bay with a visit to Lawson's Landing. There is an entrance fee. Fish or crab from the pier, or dig for clams.

World famous wineries are not far, just over 30 minutes will take you into Sebastopol and loads of small, fun wineries along the Gravenstien Highway. Bodega Bay is a beautiful drive along the Bodega Highway, where you can explore the marina, or golf at a world famous championship course.

Investigate the charming town of Petaluma, where you can go antiquing, shop at interesting shops, and find a great place to dine. A fun drive is along the Tomales Bay Road, down to the quaint town of Pt Reyes Station. Not far from there is the lighthouse, and places where you can pull over to the side of the road to see the Sea Lions bathing on the rocks.

The small town of Tomales has a great restaurant, The William Tell, and without a doubt the world's best bakery. Buy local cheeses at Diekman's Store. There are two old churches in town, the Catholic Church overlooks Highway 1, and the Presbyterian is just up the road.
