ROMANTIC COASTAL COTTAGE

Dillon Beach Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Romantic, Coastal, Arts and Crafts Style Cottage, originally built in 1918 by Zella Lee Gibson, as her painting studio. The cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners, a wine country interior designer and a general contractor. Perfect for the discriminating renter who wants the best of what Dillon Beach has to offer. SEVENTY ONE, 5 Star Reviews!

'Full Circle' has an all redwood interior, 17 foot high vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, 180 degree ocean view, filled with period antiques, lighting and original artwork. Known as 'the cutest house in the village', at Dillon Beach. Located just 200 strides from the beach.

Upon check-in, you are welcomed with a bottle of Cline Cashmere wine (It tastes as smooth as it sounds), a fresh cut bouquet of white Casa Blanca lilies, Coast Roast coffee, a box of 4 custom Full Circle, Belgium chocolate truffles by Le Belge, live orchids, plush Turkish cotton bath sheets and robes, and custom, hand made organic Full Circle soaps from Hawaii. The two, new pillow-top queen size beds are made with 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters, down pillows and Pendleton Chief blankets. The fire is built and ready to light.

Wake up each morning to the sun streaming in the magnificent front gable, stained glass, church window. Watch the waves roll in on the beach from your bed in the loft. Spend your days relaxing in steamer chairs and hammock on the patio overlooking the ocean or cuddled into the plush Lloyd Flanders patio furniture on the upper deck. Enjoy a sparkling clean hot tub with a whitewater ocean view and watch the sun set on the ocean. BBQ and have dinner under the stars on the deck. Fall asleep by the fire and to the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach.

A one of a kind place for that special occasion. The cottage has been featured in the Travel section of the New York Times, 'Elegant Bungalows' by Bethany Lyttle, on February 8th, 2008. It was also used as the set for the short film by Tarik Haddad, 'The Sound of a Yellow Flower', which played in the London Film Festival and the Dubai Film Festival's, among others. Gary William Kohler wrote and recorded a song about the cottage, 'Full Circle', that is included on his CD, 'Nowhere to be Found'.

This cottage is pure romantic bliss.

The cottage is meticulously maintained to the highest cleaning standards. It is cleaned with eco-friendly products for 4 to 5 hours between each guest and deep cleaned once a month for five hours. Down pillows are washed regularly and have pillow covers under the pillow cases. The Hot Springs spa has a sophisticated ozone filter system and is also thoroughly completely cleaned between each guest.

Dillon Beach is an old fishing village built right after the turn of the century. You feel like your 1,000 miles from 'civilization' when you are there. It is like 'the town that time forgot' perched on the edge of the world, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Tomales Bay.

This restored, all redwood artist studio, is truly a one-of-a-kind and the perfect place for a romantic getaway or just simple peace, quiet and solitude.

Historic property. Dramatic backyard ocean views, smells and sounds. All Redwood interior, 17' vaulted ceiling, loft, short walk to the beach. Good bones.

Happy Couple

  • 5 of 5
Once we arrived at the cottage we were speechless. The careful attention to detail from the craftsmanship of the home to the decor and amenities was amazing. I've personally worked in some very high end expensive places...some that go for over 3,000.00 a night and I would choose this place over those any day! For a couple it is one of the most romantic, charming place we could have imagined. I just want to say thank you to Tom for the opportunity to stay and share this wonderful place. The pictures were hard to believe but once we showed up it was apparent that the owners and caretakers go through a great deal to make this place special.

What you see is what you get.....Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is amazing and you won't be disappointed. The owners have done a great job at making this place feel like your own. Some rental homes have that "rental home" feel....not this one. Tom was amazing and his communication was greatly appreciated. Linda was great and made sure that we had everything we needed upon arrival. The home is very well stocked, so you won't have to worry if you forget something. Dillon Beach is an incredible little beach town and is the perfect spot for those that want to get away. I can't wait to return.....you will not be disappointed if you are one of the fortunate who get to share a piece of this gem.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Full Circle. The cottage is very well maintained and has a great kitchen to fix any meal. We walked down to the beach in the evening. Each night we saw a deer walk down
the street right outside our door. The stay renewed our spirit! Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.

Amazing Cabin

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this cabin for 3 nights!! It is such a fabulous home, that after the first night I tried to book another couple of nights, but it was already booked. The attention to detail in this place is unbelievable. It truly is a magical retreat. Tom was so wonderful to work with, and more than accommodating. I can't wait to stay here again! Absolutely beautiful.

Wonderful memories!

  • 5 of 5
It's obvious that the owner wants people to make wonderful memories at Full Circle...and that we did! We spent two days at this absolutely beautiful cottage! Linda, the caretaker, was very helpful and offered a little history about the house. I found the owner's personal collection of "Butterfly Shells" so beautiful and very interesting. The house is in pristine condition and being that my husband is a contractor, he spent a lot of time appreciating the workmanship of this lovely cottage!

We spent most of the days tide pooling and walking along the sandy beach. After spending the day at the beach, we came back to the cottage to grill dinner and then spent some time in the hot tub stargazing. It's the small things that make a BIG difference... complimentary bottle of wine, chocolates, sound system, and thick terry robes for after hot tub use! I can't say enough about this special place except that we will definitely be returning to make some new memories!

Phenomenal Full Circle Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely LOVED this beautiful cottage. The owners have taken special care to add such personal touches to make it so very warm and inviting, and the ocean view was just an extra bonus! We really enjoyed all the cedar interior, the art, the staircase, the bedding, the patio, the hot tub, the rugs, the fireplaces, and of course the wine, chocolates and apricots! Also enjoyed a nice stroll on the beach at sunset and walking through the neighborhood.

We took advantage of several of the owner's suggestions too, thoroughly enjoying the awesome breadsticks and veggie pizzas at Tomales Bakery, yummy pastries at Bovine Bakery, delicious lunch at the Pine Cone Diner, ok dinner at Tony's, and out-of-this-world dinner at Nick's! Also loved hiking down the northern-most trail of Point Reyes, seeing elk and enjoying the rocks and crashing waves on the beach there! Just incredible! Also sampled some Point Reyes wine at the winery on the way back!

My favorite artist is the late Dan Fogelberg, and his last CD he released before he died was called Full Circle. I enjoyed all the Full Circle touches!

Special thanks to Linda too for having everything all ready for us! It was a wonderful retreat!
