About Shiela Avakian

My family has vacationed at Dillon Beach for the last 35 years and we love it. My father loved the salmon and halibut fishing, my husband the golf, my son the beach and I love the relaxing atmosphere Dillon Beach provided.

Shiela Avakian purchased this house in 1995

Why Shiela Avakian chose Dillon Beach

We purchased this home in Dillon Beach because we love the tranquility and peacefulness that we experience when we are there. There is an abundance of wildlife around to view from the house including deer that roam the neighborhood. You can relax when you want, but you are still close to the big city. You can take day trips to Napa Valley, Sonoma, and the Russian River. We are close to Petaluma, Bodega Bay, Marshall, Occidental, Sebastapol, Jenner, Point Reyes, Tomales Bay, Marin, Guerveville, and the Muir Woods.

What makes this house unique

Dillon Beach has a great beach that is still pet friendly. You can enjoy the miles of sandy beaches or explore the tide pools and rock cliffs. We are 60 miles north of San Francisco and 45 minutes from the Wine Country. There is great fishing, surfing, beach combing, boogie boarding, clamming, crabing, hiking, biking, whale watching and golfing available.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was a very relaxing trip. The house was big enough for everybody to have their own space and enjoy our family reunion. The beach was beautiful. We enjoyed the deer wondering through the neighborhoods and the wildlife that we were able to observe. We especially liked the fenced backyard for the kids. The kitchen was large and capable of handling all our cooks. We had a great time and can't wait to come back next year.

Beautiful area! Incredible views of the Ocean!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for Easter weekend. My Family, My brothers family and My Dad. Plenty of room and we all got to hang out together the whole time. So much better than staying in a hotel!!!

Close to the city, we went to SanFrancisco one day. Went and got fresh Oysters in Bodega bay and bbqd one night. Grassy area all around the property for the kids to play. My husband and father are runners and they went on some incredible runs. The views are just gorgeous!GREAT vacation!!!

Wonderful home for multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Three families with teens stayed at Pirate's Cove for the weekend. The home was clean and spacious to suit the large group and was very well equipped with kitchen supplies and bedding. The spa was also fun in the foggy night. We enjoyed the views of the ocean below and deer, quail and other animals paasing in the yard. We had a great time and would recommend this home. Sheila was very easy to work with.
