If luxury and proximity to the beach are a necessity for your north coast vacation, then Casa Por- do- Sol in Dillon Beach is the home for you. The owners have tastefully redecorated this 2500+ square foot house. No amenity was overlooked. It is one of only sixteen homes built directly behind the dunes of Dillon Beach and is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. This property has ample room, a thoughtful design and is well stocked to accommodate entertaining a large family or a cozy vacation for two. A unique feature of this home, the owners will rent the main living space and access to the master suite only for a lower price.
Casa Por-do-Sol is at the end of a private street with plenty of parking. You enter onto a large deck with a charcoal Bar-B-Que and outdoor dining table. Walking through the front door, floor to ceiling windows allow you to take in the amazing view of the ocean. A balcony is situated off the great room where you can enjoy the fresh ocean breeze and crashing of the waves. The spacious open living and dining room features a hand crafted 12 foot table which seats up to 14 people, 60 inch flat screen TV with satellite and a beautiful gas fireplace to warm you up on chilly nights. The kitchen has updated appliances, gorgeous granite counter-tops and is stocked with spices, cutlery, cooking and serving utensils. The house features stunning wide plank acacia hardwood floors, vaulted 10 foot ceilings, and incredibly comfortable beds.
Off of the living room is the luxurious master bedroom and bathroom which features a king size bed, a view of the ocean, and its own flat screen TV. On the opposite side of the house (off of the dining room) are three additional spacious bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Among the three bedrooms there are two queen beds, one king bed and two flat screen TV’s. All bathrooms include walk-in showers and travertine tile.
The house includes Wi-Fi, a desk area with printer, and a full laundry room where the washer, dryer, sink and cleaning supplies are located.
Great house with wonderful views and an easy walk to the beach - rare in Dillon Beach! The house is very comfortable with a big communal dining table, living room with large sectional, and a nice patio to enjoy the sunshine (and it's protected from the wind!). The house has a great layout all on one level, with nice bedrooms and bathrooms throughout, and a fantastic kitchen. Overall, an easy, relaxing, and beautiful place to stay.
We had a three day family gathering at this beach house. The floor plan works very well for entertaining, feeding, relaxing, sleeping and showering a large number of people. Beds are high-end hotel quality and out of all seven people, all seven slept well. We have stayed at a lot of owner rented properties and this is one of the best. The owners manage to make it feel like home and they aren't even there! We are a cooking and foodie family. We were delighted with how well the kitchen was stocked with cooking pots, pans, bakeware, serving and dining dishes.
Dillon Beach is a nice short walk from the house. However an out of shape person may consider the walk back a bit of 'hill'. Every morning and evening there were deer with fawns in the yard. The gas fireplace is easy to use, warms the living room nicely and adds a ton of ambiance. From the house morning and evening surfers can be observed along with people and their dogs frolicking on the beach. A narrow but adequate deck for enjoying the view while drinking coffee in the morning and wine at night offers complete relaxation while enjoying the fresh air and ocean view. Parking is adequate for four cars.
It's a compliment to humanity how the owners trust renters with their obviously loved and well maintained home.
We stayed @ this beautiful beach house when we had family visiting from out of state. It is a lovely home with an amazing view. The location is perfect with things to do/see in every direction. The house is very elegant & comfortable with everything you need for your stay. Will definitely be back.
Beautiful home with beautiful views; fantastic location; top-notch customer service. My family & I put in many miles of beach-walking with our dog.
We had eight people and two dogs at this house and had plenty of room. It is in a great location and perfect for dogs. We hung out on the front deck at the table and chairs, and bbq'd most nights. (For the dogs, we blocked off the front wooden entrance with coolers.) I talked with Gail and she was most helpful and gracious. We will definitely stay here again.
The house is very roomy and clean. Every thing was top rate. The location is very close to the beach. The owner Gail was is very easy to work with and available when needed.
All in all it was a wonderful place for our family to get together without being on top of each other. I would like to stay here again.
