Three generations of our family enjoy our time at Dillon Beach. We love the long walks on the beach. Surfing, skim boarding, walks on the beach, fishing, crabing and claming. It's all here.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2001

We have been coming to Dillon Beach for over thirty years. We always returned to vacation here. So we decided to buy the 'Sea Captain.' And, now it's a family treasure. We come much more often, and stay longer.

When we stay at the 'Sea Captain,' we walk all the way down the beach to Lawson's Landing and have coffee with some of the locals. Great exercise and fresh air. Staying in the 'village,' as the locals call it, is like a throwback to previous times. It's kind of like being removed from the rest of the world.

"UN-STRESSOR"? NOT SO MUCH

"Un-stressor"? Not so much
  • 1 of 5
It was a small "OK" place compared to other Dillon Beach rentals.
We paid extra for linens so that we could just relax when we got there. We've stayed at many other great VRBOs that charge for linens - the beds are usually made up for the price you pay. After a long journey we arrived at this place to find a big plastic garbage bag of linens tossed on a bed and had to make all the beds. The "fenced in" back yard was ... not. The whole area is a deck that is partially fenced. I do not recommend this place to dog owners unless your dog is hairless, or you bring your own vacuum. We paid an ample cleaning fee with the rental. We spent more than an hour cleaning the small house and followed the cleaning instructions. I went through with their vacuum twice . The rugs are old and like velcro, and their vacuum did not not work well. Weeks later when I finally got my deposit check, they had deducted an additional fee for pet hair. I have been taking my dogs to VRBO rentals for 20 years and cleaning up after them. This has never happened to me before. This place really isn't worth the hassle. There are plenty of other nicer rentals with much better appreciation for their renters.

Owner's Response: Wow! We have never received a review like this before. We purposely don't provide linens, and we rent it that way. The management company provides the linens, if requested. The back deck is fully fenced, and we allow our dogs to stay out there. They can't get out and are safe. The Dillon Beach lots are small, and a deck is about the only yard you can have. The carpets were purchased within the last year. And the vacuum worked well the last time we were there, less than a month ago. Anyway, we were shocked. We have done everything we can think of the make our little place comfortable. And we love being there. We are truly sorry about your experience.

GREAT "GETAWAY"

Great "getaway"
  • 5 of 5
This cute little cottage is a great place for a getaway. Close enough to the beach to walk and hear the surf at night. It has a lovely view of Tomales point. The cottage and beach allows dogs so my small dog had a ball running and romping in the water. Has a TV but the ambience of the cottage makes you want to just read or play games. If you owe yourself a weekend (week) of R & R, this is the place to go.

WONDERFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
The two of us needed a relaxing, stress free break and the "Sea Captain" was the answer.
We found it to be a charming beach home with all the necessary amenities. The walk to the beach was quick, and the ocean a beautiful site. With a restaurant within walking distance, we were able to make the choice, whether to cook or dine out. We had a very enjoyable weekend and hope to visit again soon.

GREAT LOCATION, COULD BE CLEANER

  • 4 of 5
Cute cottage, great location—we had a nice stay. The $50 cleaning fee is mighty excessive for such a small place, especially since the place did not feel super-clean. There was a 1/2 layer of dust on the ceiling fan and large amounts of dust under both beds. Not what I would expect for $50 of cleaning fees.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that we forgot to dust off the blades of the ceiling fan. Somehow, the beach generates a lot of dust. And we will get those dust bunnies under the beds. But, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you.

"BEST KEPT SECRET"

"BEST KEPT SECRET"
  • 5 of 5
"The Sea Captain" is in the great little town of Dillon Beach! Very quiet & charming. A Mayberry feeling! A wonderful little bakery and hotel are at the base of the hill. Must stop for a bite & a visit! Then up the hill to a perfect spot. Very quiet, neighbors are great! Can hear the ocean at night as you sleep. This 2 bedroom 1 1/2 bath has everything you need! From wine glasses to board games. I love to cook and this stocked kitchen makes it very easy. Very clean, which is a must for me!The beach is a hop, skip & a jump from the house. You can enjoy the water's view from the porch, the sunsets are beautiful. Very cozy at night with the little fireplace to enjoy watching tv or listening to music. I have been fortunate enough stay here on 4 different occasions with the plan to return again in September! I have shared my stay with different guests all of whom have returned for their vacation!
I love that it is close enough to cruise into Bodega Bay. It is just a beautiful "leave all life's stresses behind" and come to enjoy this best kept secret location. Weather has been beautiful in April as well as
September!
Enjoy and bring your family and friends, you will leave with a smile on your face & a happy heart!
Pet friendly!
