Romantic, Coastal, Arts and Crafts Style Cottage, originally built in 1918 by Zella Lee Gibson, as her painting studio. The cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners, a wine country interior designer and a general contractor. Perfect for the discriminating renter who wants the best of what Dillon Beach has to offer. Full Circle has received over 130 FIVE STAR reviews. This is very, very rare anywhere on the VRBO website and unheard of in Dillon Beach.
'Full Circle' has an all redwood interior, 17 foot high vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, 180 degree ocean view, filled with period antiques, lighting and original artwork. The cottage art and decor is a homage to the original inhabitants of the area, the Coastal Miwok Indians. Known as 'the cutest house in the village', at Dillon Beach. Located just 200 strides from the beach down Bumble Bee Path.
Upon check-in, you are welcomed with a bottle of Cline Cashmere wine (It tastes as smooth as it sounds), a fresh cut bouquet of flowers, Coast Roast coffee, a box of 4 custom Full Circle, Belgium chocolate truffles by Le Belge, live orchids, plush Turkish cotton bath sheets and robes, Terra Pure organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash and custom, hand made, organic Full Circle soaps from Hawaii. The two, new pillow-top queen size beds are made with 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters, down pillows and Pendleton Chief blankets. The fire is built and ready to light.
Wake up each morning to the sun streaming in the magnificent front gable, stained glass, church window. Watch the waves roll in on the beach from your bed in the loft. Spend your days relaxing in the plush Lloyd Flanders furniture on the patio and upper deck overlooking the ocean. Enjoy a sparkling clean hot tub with a whitewater ocean view and watch the sun set on the ocean. BBQ and have dinner under the stars on the deck. Make some memories while gathered around the outdoor fireplace. Fall asleep in plush beds to the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach.
A one of a kind place for that special occasion. The cottage has been featured in the Travel section of the New York Times, 'Elegant Bungalows' by Bethany Lyttle, on February 8th, 2008. It was also used as the set for the short film by Tarik Haddad, 'The Sound of a Yellow Flower', which played in the London Film Festival and the Dubai Film Festival's, among others. Gary William Kohler wrote and recorded a song about the cottage, 'Full Circle', that is included on his CD, 'Nowhere to be Found'.
This cottage is pure romantic bliss.
The cottage is meticulously maintained to the highest cleaning standards. It is cleaned with eco-friendly products for 5 to 6 hours between each guest and deep cleaned once a month for five hours.

Dillon Beach is an old fishing village built right after the turn of the century. You feel like your 1,000 miles from 'civilization' when you are there. It is like 'the town that time forgot' perched on the edge of the world, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Tomales Bay.
This restored, all redwood artist studio, is truly a one-of-a-kind and the perfect place for a romantic getaway or just simple peace, quiet and solitude.
Historic property. Dramatic backyard ocean views, smells and sounds. All Redwood interior, 17' vaulted ceiling, loft, short walk to the beach. Good bones.
Once we arrived at the cottage we were speechless. The careful attention to detail from the craftsmanship of the home to the decor and amenities was amazing. I've personally worked in some very high end expensive places...some that go for over 3,000.00 a night and I would choose this place over those any day! For a couple it is one of the most romantic, charming place we could have imagined. I just want to say thank you to Tom for the opportunity to stay and share this wonderful place. The pictures were hard to believe but once we showed up it was apparent that the owners and caretakers go through a great deal to make this place special.
His: Great location with sea winds, views, and walks. Love the old post and tube wiring, redwood interior, fantastic lighting choices, outdoor living room and a jacuzzi with a view! The kitchen was a delight to cook in with gas stove and high quality cookware!
Hers: Super-duper romantic home w/ breathtaking natural surroundings; Quality bed linens & bath towels; well organized & equipped kitchen + storage closets; Fragrant touches provided by Meyers Brand cleaning products along w/ thoughtful upscale toiletries in the bathroom. Very clean outdoor hot tub and claw foot tub in bathroom.
This was hands down, the best weekend getaway we've had in years. This quaint cottage was simply stunning in the level of detail and thoughtfulness put forth, from the beautiful fresh cut flowers to a delicious bottle of wine and designer chocolates that were left to greet us. The cottage is really charming and well taken care of with top of the line craftsmanship and furnishings. The beds and linens are high quality and both are perfectly situated for waking up to a beautiful ocean view. This place won't disappoint!
We had a wonderful stay!! Loved this beach house. The detail and thought in everything makes it perfection. Very charming and made for a perfect wknd away.
We had the best time bringing in the new year with wonderful friends.
Everything was perfect.
An amazing stay, and even better than the pictures can show. Oooohs and aaahhs at every turn in this cottage, which is artfully designed to its historical roots. Every corner has a special feel, and is cozy as well as sophisticated. We learned about artworks and artists, and 'butterfly' criton shells and will look for them on every beach walk from now on. It's a gift that Tom and his family shared their home with us. Thank you!
