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. SIXTY 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, custom Full Circle pillow chocolates, live orchids, plush towels, and custom, hand made organic soaps from Hawaii. The two new pillow-top queen size beds are made with 600 thread count cotton sheets, down comforters, down pillows and Pendleton bedspreads. 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 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. The TV and Bose remote controls, doorknobs, and bathroom fixture handles are wiped sterile between each guest. Down pillows have pillow covers under the pillow cases that are washed regularly. The Hot Springs spa has an expensive ozone filter system and is also 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 ocean views, smells and sounds. Sparkling clean, ocean view hot tub. Gourmet kitchen. Short walk to the beach. Squeaky clean cottage.

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.

Awesome Getaway!

My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at Full Circle. The house is immaculate and very close to the beach. Not only was the house a gem, the backyard/deck is equally as awesome. There are two separate areas to relax (one sheltered). There is also a nice crystal clean spa, a hammock, and lounge and deck chairs. The neighborhood is very quiet and offers a very relaxing and peaceful environment. We were very impressed with every aspect of our stay and highly recommend Full Circle to anybody looking for a very quaint and cute place to stay.

Paradise

My son described our Full Circle vacation perfectly: "Paradise." We had a lovely week. The house is exactly as described in the listing and just as the pictures show. The mattresses and linens are luxurious. The kitchen is a joy to cook in. We were surprised at how much the owners trust their guests with beautiful, original artwork and accessories. The Dillon Beach community is quiet. Some days we had the beach completely to ourselves! My husband is a runner and thoroughly enjoyed nearby trails. Our favorite trips from the cottage were to Point Reyes (for hikes), Wright's Beach (for seashells at low tide) and The Tides (for Dungeness Crab).

This, like other reviewers said, is more beautiful than you can get across on the internet. I also have a vacation cabin in another state and take pride in having it well stocked and very clean. Full Circle really does do a great job. The owner, Tom, the caretaker Linda were very much appreciated and helpful. Linda gave us a personal tour and thanked my Daughter and Son in law for their service in the Marines. This was a special trip we wanted to give them for thier service. We played at the beach, bbq oysters and relaxed in this beautiful cottage. The ocean air coming through the windows while we slept in the most comfortable sheets I have ever felt "going out to buy some". Watching the sun set and rise was awesome. Oh wait, Dillon bakery in town, delishes. Thanks again for accomadating us.

This is a very comfortable home. There are many places to enjoy the view of the ocean from this well maintained beach house. It is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture and a peaceful setting throughout. It was very clean and well stocked. The beach is also clean, very soft sand to stroll down for miles. We enjoyed every minute of the two night stay here, and would highly recommend it.
