Here are some comments from our first couple of renters:
'it is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed at on the coast'
'The location is second to none. Right on the beach, watching and listening to the ocean. '
'Your home is spectacular! We look forward to coming back again and again!'
'Huge wow factor when you walk in the front door. This beach home exceeds all expectations!'
'Oh and about that theatre....
We ventured into the theatre room last night after watching the sunset in the hot tub.
(Yeah life is tough out here).
I frankly thought I'd not be interested.
Oh My goodness.
This ruins EVERYthing!
Holy cow I had no idea.! i thought it would be blurry and distorted. We are home movie watching folks.
HD /blueray/Bose sound types. But this systems hits it outta the park. How are we ever going to go home and watch movies on a television!?! You've ruined us!
And those chairs and beanbags! Brilliant!
'the pictures on the site are great but they don't do it justice! We will treat it as our own.'
'Very clean, upscale, well stocked, but also very comfortable. Loved the decor. The beds are wonderful with down pillows and cozy duvets to snuggle into and listen to the ocean at night.'
'We will recommend this place to all of our friends, and we can not wait to come back!!'

Randy Knight purchased this house in 2013
WE have owned a beautiful home high on the hills in Dillon Beach for over 11 years and have enjoyed it immensely. However we always found ourselves walking and driving down to be closer to the ocean. When we saw this fantastic home with this incredible location and basically it's own beach we pulled every string we could to buy it. We love it so much it hurts to have it rented and not be able to be there. Something about the way the house is filled with light and warmth and the sights and sounds of the ocean is truly magical. And I finally get the movie theater of my dreams. You may not be coming to the beach to watch movies but if it happens to be a dreary coastal day you can escape to an entirely different world right down the hall. I'm afraid that you will feel an emptiness in your chest when it comes time to leave but you can always come back.
There are no other homes that I know if in Dillon Beach that offer the location, views, access and amenities available at Sea Horse. We have 7 different areas that people can sleep in. 3 of the the 4 bedrooms have their own full bathroom in the room and the 4th bathroom has a jetted tub with a great shower. Thanks to a huge outcropping of bedrock, our property has not suffered from erosion like most of our neighbors. So we actually have a large back yard to enjoy right on the bluffs. Just don't run too far to catch that ball. Rather than tucked into a dark corner somewhere, our new hot tub offers unobstructed ocean views. We also have a fantastic open Great Room on the main upper level and a second family room which also has wonderful views just below. Then of course there is the huge movie theater which just puts this house on an entirely different level for Dillon Beach.
Seahorse rental sits perched high above the sea with an open knockout panorama that feels like the top deck of a large cruise ship. The views are on par with the best that even Big Sur serves up--and we have been to Big Sur on several occasions. It's just natural to settle in, get cozy, click on your favorite music and stare out at the endless view. Nevertheless, its a short walk down to the ocean where the big rollers crash into the shore.
There were five of us who stayed for three days--all of the beds and sheets are of top quality. We cooked, baked, grilled and had cocktails----every kitchen utensil, gadget, glassware etc. for food preparation and consumption was available. The bathrooms and furnishings were great.
The huge movie theatre experience was of top quality ( up to date rectangle rather than a square ) and we stayed up way too long every night to eat popcorn and watch our favorite flicks. Don't think twice--just go.
We celebrated our annual Friendsgiving in this beautiful home and we can't wait to go back! I have stayed in several properties in Dillon Beach and this is by far the most spectacular. This home is so well thought out and equipped for comfort and relaxation. The beds were so comfortable and no detail was missed. Not to mention, the views in the home are simply breathtaking from every level. The chefs in our group raved about the kitchen- there was plenty of space for 4 adults to create a beautiful meal, while the rest of us lounged on the couch or sat at a bar stool.
Randy was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful before and during our stay. It was clear that he wanted us to enjoy our time at this beautiful home!
I can't wait to return and to sit in that hot tub, again!
My parents and aunt visited for my 40th birthday celebration, and we decided to rent a house on the ocean for the entire family as an alternative to hotels or B&Bs. While I have been to houses at Dillon Beach in the past, nothing can compare to the experience we had at this property. Granted, the amazing weather had something to do with it, but I can tell you without reservation that this house is absolutely spectacular. It's well-appointed, spacious, recently remodeled, obviously very well cared for by the owners, has a truly outstanding movie theatre room, and has some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. There were two very, very slight drawbacks: 1) the kitchen ovens and deck grill didn't work quite as expected (thermostat issues), and 2) I would really advertise this property as having two master suites, not three. Technically, yes, there are three bedrooms w/ ensuites, but one of them is located in the back of the house with no view and few windows. However, overall, I honestly can't think of a better property in the area. The owners are extremely professional, prompt, and attentive. Two very, very big thumbs up. Hope to be back soon.
I rented the house with 4 other couples to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday! What a great escape to be in such a cool house sitting directly on the bluffs overlooking the ocean. The house easily accommodated all 10 of use. We never felt cramped. The kitchen and dining area were perfect for hosting a large dinner party. The evenings were topped off with soaks in the hot tub. The entertainment room was awesome with the 3D Blue Ray projector!! At first the driveway looked small but we were actually able to fit two mid-sized sedans, a small suv, a GMC Denali (large suv), and an Audi Q7.
The house was perfect for our adult getaway and we had a great relaxing weekend.
Our visit involved our entire family, six adults and six children. It was to celebrate our oldest daughter’s 40th birthday. The house has plenty of room and accommodated us very comfortably. The large dining table allowed us to easily do meals for a group of twelve. The views are outstanding, truly a WOW factor, from the two decks and Dillon Beach is just a few blocks away. After dark the children really enjoyed the theater room. Randy was very easy to work with.
We vacation each year with two other families, but have often found that a home suitable for all of us is difficult to find. I'm thrilled to say that after our stay at Randy's home that we've finally found our "Annual Destination!" Here are a few of the reasons why we will be back: The home was an easy drive from the SF Bay Area, so secluded & upscale, tastefully remodeled, the view is breathtaking ("It feels like we are on a cruise ship, surrounded by water!" said my friend.), family-friendly (I was thrilled to see a gate to block the main stairwell as we have toddlers learning to walk. I do wish there was a gate from the back deck to the backyard area as the house does sit close to the cliff), the hot tub served as a "little pool" for the kids, the beach was a short walk and provided so much entertainment with its tide pools, starfish, crabs, etc., we really felt like we were at the big theaters when we watched one of the MANY movies provided by Randy, the kitchen was amazing & the dual kitchen sinks were a huge plus, I could go on and on… really… it exceeded ALL expectations. We'd never find another home this amazing. We look forward to many, many vacations on the water at The Sea Horse. Our kids are still talking about the "beach house" and can't wait to go back.
