This home was exactly as described, warm, inviting, with spectacular views! It was the perfect setting for my wife and I to celebrate with our family our 25th wedding anniversary. Fernanda was easy to work with, and got back to emailed questions in a timely fashion. The home was very clean and neat, with tasteful decorations. One could tell that this was more than an ordinary vacation house, it was someone's home. I would highly recommend it, if you needed a home that could accommodate 10 adults and 2 teens.

Stunning View and a Great Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

After enjoying the beautiful drive from the 101 and the stunning ocean view driving down the street to the house, we walked through the entry hall into the kitchen, and we were just FLOORED by how beautiful it was! It’s just a gorgeous kitchen with a fantastic view! The whole house was just great, and very generously provisioned with everything, and the owners obviously put a lot of effort and expense into the house. After our sun-filled arrival, we endured torrential rain for the rest of the weekend, but we STILL had a great time, barely leaving the house for three days. We got to spend quality time with our adult kids, my sister and her adult kids, and we cooked up a storm in the gourmet kitchen. And we were charmed by visiting deer almost every day. Because it was off season with no other bookings, Fernanda graciously allowed us an early check-in and late check out. Plus she went to the trouble of mailing back something I left in the house, and she didn’t charge me for it! Dealing with such a generous homeowner was just the frosting on the cake! All eleven of us loved the house and we all had a wonderful time there.

Perfect for large family get-togethers

  • 5 of 5

Our large family just returned from a three night stay in this beautiful home with a SPECTACULAR view. Having 6 bedrooms and 5 full bathrooms was really nice. This very clean home is located at the end of a cul-de-sac, which was great for our grandchildren when they played outside. The home is fully stocked with items you might need, plus there are board games, a telescope, and binoculars. Fernanda, the owner, was very easy to work with and responded very quickly with questions that I had. Thank you, Fernanda, for all the thoughtful things you have done to your home so that your guests feel very comfortable. It was a great and memorable stay!

The most relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for a weekend getaway. The place is new, fully furnished, clean, and roomy. The view from balcony is fantastic. Even though the beach is just a quick drive away, we almost preferred sitting on the balcony to soak up the Sun and enjoy the breeze.

Pics don't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

The layout worked extremely well for our group. My favorite parts were the views from the downstairs bedroom, the living room, and deck. The view literally took my breath away. The kitchen was well equipped. The big eating area allowed for group meals yet all the bedrooms and bathrooms allowed for each couple to get away. I have stayed in lots of places but this was exceptional.

Beautiful Setting and Very Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The view from the great room and many of the bedrooms is truly amazing. The kitchen is very well equipped. This is not a huge house, which adds to the fun. The main deck is on the side of the building which leaves an unobstructed view of the Pacific from the floor to ceiling windows in the great room. Bedrooms are comfortable and well furnished, not huge - but very nice. Bathrooms are very nice. The TV room referred to in the listing is not pictured - it's a good place for kids to sleep. The owner was very quick to return our inquiries from the very beginning, which was very much appreciated. We visited San Francisco two of our days; Sonoma Wineries; golf at Bodega Bay; Spa Osmosis; Hog Island Oyster Farm; the Russian River for a canoe trip; So many good restaurants in the area. Dillon Beach was a great launch point for all of these activities. We were very pleased with our stay. Thanks
