Dillon Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Above and Beyond is a two story home in the Oceana Marin subdivision in the quaint little town of Dillon Beach.

The home is situated at the end of a level cul de sac yet up high enough to offer amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay, Point Reyes Peninsula and Bodega Head. Our goal is to offer a 'home away from home' experience to relax, play games, watch movies, cook or BBQ your favorite family recipes (or try new local dishes!) and simply to create memories that will last a lifetime!

Whether at home, outdoors or at one of the many local attractions, there is something for everybody!

About Ms. Galati- Owner

Phil and Joanne have been married since 1987. We have a daughter and a son both in their twenties- we are not quite empty nesters but consider having a vacation rental part of our next 'season' of life together. We both grew up near the ocean and love the climate and relaxed atmosphere of the northern California coast. We live now in the Sierra foothills where we get the hot, dry summers so really enjoy the cooler coastal weather. We love sharing our home on the coast and consider it a blessing and a privilege to do so.

Ms. Galati- Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Ms. Galati- Owner chose North Coast California

With our family and friends we have rented homes in this area of the coast many times since 1998. We have many fond memories of each of the visits. We wanted to have a more permanent home to visit ourselves and to offer others the enjoyment of the coastal climate and activities that we have enjoyed so so much in the past

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that one can enjoy the ocean breezes and wonderful views even if you never feel like leaving the home. Perfect for a cozy weekend reading a book or playing games by the fire. We love to pick up some fresh oysters to BBQ on the deck and hike out along the beach or the trails that start from the top of Oceana....

**We are participants in Marin County's Clean Energy Deep Green Program, which provides you with 100% clean, renewable energy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(youngster entry) This place is so cool. Our grandparents came and they loved it but had to leave early we stayed one more night. We loved your pool table and especially your foosball table.

Above and Beyond is definetly "Above and Beyond"!

  • 5 of 5

We spent from Monday 9-5-16 to Friday 9-9-16 at "Above and Beyond". The home is beautiful, the view is spectacular, the amenities are all there for your use and enjoyment. Play games, read books, sit on the patio and enjoy the view, record your favorite program on Direct TV, barbeque, or walk down to Dillon's Beach. The café at Dillon's Beach has a wonderful breakfast, a grocery store is right next door to pick up anything you may have forgotten to bring, and the beach is wonderful to walk your pets and enjoy the day. Take a drive to Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Bodega Bay (Spud Point has fantastic Chowder) and enjoy a leisurely ride down "1". The owners, Joanne and Phil are lovely and easily assessable via phone should you have any questions. The days swiftly sped by and before we knew it, it was time to come home. Next time 7 day minimum for sure. If you are planning a trip to Dillon's Beach, this is the place to stay!

"Above and Beyond" exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful, warm, and inviting. Everything you need is right at your fingertips. The view of Dillon's Beach was spectacular and the side balconies are perfect for enjoying a beautiful sunset and watching the waves roll in. The home is spacious, the kitchen is large and completely stocked with the amenities needed for a wonderful stay. The Master Bedroom has a side balcony which overlooks Dillon's Beach and a large comfy Queen bed. We will definitely be going back over and over again. Randy and Karen Presley

Summer Fog bank

  • 4 of 5

Positives: Nice house with well stocked kitchen, comfortable living room, and the occasional glimpse of the bay looked lovely.

Queen beds were very comfortable. Nice being able to bring our dog.

Negatives: House up a very steep hill making walking to the beach quite difficult. The beach is not nearby.

We were socked in with very thick fog for the three days we were there, and it seemed like the higher you were the more fog there was...

Pool table was in a damp basement and not really usable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Above and Beyond. Wanted to clarify that we have no queen beds- a king in the master , a king in the second bedroom, a bunk bed with a double on the bottom in the third. The beach is 1/2 mile away. The usual foggy times are in the summer - October and Feb/March can actually have sunnier days! We have been updating/painting other parts of the house and although the Pool table is usable it is in a room that we have yet to make major changes.

Awesome Rental!!!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house in July 2016 for 4 days. Located up on a hill secluded, quiet at night, and inside was clean and ready to occupy at check-in. Deer on the premises everyday and racoons at night. So many "niceaties" available inside i.e. towels, laundry soap, all kitchen utensils, crock pot, spices etc etc. So if you forgot anything its probably there to use. Little too far and hilly for my elderly in-laws to walk to beach but its only a 5 min drive and $8 parking fee for Dillion Beach. Our first time here and loved every minute of it. I highly recommend trying this place out. Kingi's, Vacaville, CA
