Dillon Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

'A Shore Thing' is a new rental at Dillon Beach! This sweet beach bungalow is open and airy with wonderful Pacific views!

When you arrive you will no doubt be greeted with song birds, quails calling...and deer meandering through the back yard. If you look to the west you will see the Pacific Ocean with boats being launched from the near-by harbor....sound peaceful?? It gets even better!!

The beach house has a very open feeling...uncluttered, light and spacious.

The enrty level has the kitchen, dining and living room in a large inviting space...wheather you are 'Iron Chefing' it with your friends...or catching the game on the flat screen on the comfy sectional couch with dual recliners by the fireplace...you are connected with the people you adore. Large bay windows with a sliding door opens to a deck bringing the outdoors in...

The 3 bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and room enough to sprawl and find quiet spaces...

The second bedroom has a queen bed and is bright...open..with partial ocean views.

The 3rd bedroom has a bunk bed with double on the bottom and twin on the top, ocean views and a flat screen TV.

At the end of the day hit the gameroom...a perfect way to relax and catch-up with your friends. There is a pool table, dart borad, flat screen and a cozy couch/sofa sleeper making this gameroom one of the best in Dillon Beach...a little something for everyone.

The Hot Tub area is enclosed for your privacy.

This sweet beach house allows 8 people maximum day or night.

About The Owner

We've been married for 8 years and have four children. We both work hard during the week and like to relax and have fun on the weekend.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Dillon Beach

My wife and I have been vacationing in Bodega Bay for several years and when we found Dillon Beach it was like a slice of heaven. Our dream was to locate to a beach home in the San Diego area but when we found this property so close to home we fell in love. We frequently visit our property which quickly has become a popular vacation rental and love the various travelers that come from all over to share our home.

What makes this house unique

The home is so so quiet and beautiful. Having open land to the left and back of the house allows us to see a lot of wildlife such as fox, deer & quail. We love the sound of the ocean as we stand on the front and back decks. From the front deck you can see views of Bodega Head and watch the boats going out fishing/crabbing. One thing we really love is going to the surround towns to look at antiques and wine tasting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was so relaxing and beautiful, I hope to visit it again next year

Cozy, comfortable weekend get-away home with breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "A Shore Thing" over a long weekend, with 2 families and 4 children. The home is spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed with everything you could need for a get-away at the beach. The views from the living room and the deck are incredible. The well-stocked kitchen made cooking a pleasure, and the kids loved the downstairs game room (and the hot tub!). The beach was a mere 5 mins drive down a very steep hill (walking up/down is doable, but taxing!). Dillon Beach was a great launching point for our day trips to Point Reyes National Seashore (check out Bovine Bakery for breakfast!) and Bodega Bay (highly recommend Rocker Oysterfeller's for dinner!). The property owner was very helpful and set us up with everything we needed.

Even better than advertised. Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this property. The attention to detail was evident throughout the entire place. The owner was super easy to work with, and is a real pro. The pics may not do justice - for a party of 6, I can't imagine there being much better deals than this. Thanks!

We spent the Thanksgiving holiday at "a shore thing" with five adults, three children and a dog. The house is very comfortable, plenty of room, perfectly stocked, great board games, used the fireplace every night, grilled outside, hot tub every day, naps, walks, wildlife, lots of fun. Great views, great location, super kind homeowner. Ahhhhh

A sure Thing, here you can relax!

  • 5 of 5

We rented a Shore Thing for ten days, we loved it from the first minute. We were greeted by the local wildlife. Fortunately our dog didn't care and rather watched the deers from inside through the window. A Shore Thing it's the perfect place to really relax, it's very quite up there, so we sat outside on the patio reading our books or enjoying the view, it's a beautiful one. The game room is the perfect place when you are visiting with grown-up kids. So is the closet with all the board games. Everything else in the house is nicely decorated and clean and whatever you need for a vacation is there. The owner was helpful with all our questions. We would definitely recommend 'a Shore Thing!'

Wonderful getaway in Dillon Beach

  • 5 of 5

- The house was simply but well-furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was equipped enough for us to make a dinner feast for 8 people using supplies from the Point Reyes farmers' market. Hot tub definitely came in handy for late-night soaking and conversation!

- Sleeping 8 people in the house was slightly tight but doable by putting a couple people on pull-out/couches. More comfortable for 6 people (3 actual bedrooms with beds).

- Well-positioned for short drives to the oyster coast of Tomales Bay and longer drives to shopping and restaurants in Point Reyes and Olema.

- A short drive from the beach which is more than made up by the views of the coast in walking around the neighborhood, particularly the 'goat path' through the field going down to the cliff wall.

- Dog-friendly house and neighborhood...our terrier had a blast

- Would definitely recommend this property as an affordable vacation place in the Tomales Bay area!
