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!

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.

Great home for family trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family vacation. It had everything we needed and more. It was perfect for a multi-generational family with young children. The owner was super responsive, nice, and helpful. We would absolutely stay here again.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time! The home was beautiful, but comfortable. We loved relaxing and watching the wild life in the morning, ( my dogs especially got excited over the views). We lounged in the pool room in evening we made it "our pool hall" we had a blast! We will be back!

Beach House - Unbelievable!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Joanne's beach house last week with my family and we had an incredible time! The place was on top of a large hill and sat perfectly above the ocean - the view was incredible! Everyone's eyes lit up when we realized where we were staying!

House was very well kept - just as advertised. Plenty of space for a large group of people.

Just as important, Joanne was EXCELLENT to work with! From property information, local beaches, and a LONG list of wineries and things to do in the area, she was extremely helpful. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend renting this property or any property of hers!

Thanks for making our vacation so memorable!

Beautiful Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were (4) women in the area for a business conference and stole several days at the end for a beach getaway experience. What a perfect ending to a busy, overstimulated conference! We just breathed a huge sigh of relief the minute we opened the door to the house. It's so welcoming, spacious and completely accommodating. The views from everywhere in the house are wonderful. We took a long relaxing walk on the wonderful beach, climbed on the rocks and enjoyed the end of the day. We came back to heat up some dinner we had brought and were so pleasantly excited to enjoy our meal and a glass of wine in the dining room while enveloped in a beautiful sunset. Pure heaven!!

The house is spacious, very clean, and very comfortable with lots of linens and amenities to make you feel right at home, and in a very nice (but not at all crowded) neighborhood. We took day trips to the redwood forest and enjoyed tastings at beautiful winery, and a lovely dinner at a nearby restaurant. Just wish we had more time to spend soaking up the beach air before returning to work. We will definitely come back next time we have business in Petaluma!

The house was perfect for a spring break with my son and his friends. I knew that we had a 50/50 chance for good weather this time of year so I wanted the house to be comfortable for all of us in case we were stuck in side. We got a little of both but the boys entertained themselves with the pool table and games. I was entertained watching them play Cranium! When the sun came out so did we..hiking,walking the beach with my pooches and really just enjoying the beauty. We are hoping to do it again next year and I'm thinking about coming sometime without boys to enjoy the peace and serenity watching the waves from one of the balconies.

Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at "Above and Beyond " There was plenty of room for the 9 of us.

Joanne was so very pleasant to work with for any questions we had ,to the day we checked in.

We had sunny weather everyday. The afternoons did get pretty windy tho. The views out the windows were TO DIE FOR. and the sunsets were more then amazing.

We all had a great time downstairs in the game room.( You actually go outside to the door under the house to the game room. Such a perfect setup .We played pool mostly even tho there is also foos ball)

Our first day we all headed to the beach.. Very dog friendly.

Unfortunately, our son lost his car key on his walk along the beach . Good thing a lock smith from Rohnert park came out to the house and made a key for him.( This was an expensive trip that he won't forget) lol

All the beds were very comfortable. Everyone slept great. ( we had 5 adults and 4 kids from age 10 to 18.

We all had a great time and highly recommend renting from Joanne.
