About The Owner

We've been married for 8 years and have four children. We both work hard during the week and like to relax and have fun on the weekend.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose North Coast California

My wife and I have been vacationing in Bodega Bay for several years and when we found Dillon Beach it was like a slice of heaven. Our dream was to locate to a beach home in the San Diego area but when we found this property so close to home we fell in love. We frequently visit our property which quickly has become a popular vacation rental and love the various travelers that come from all over to share our home.

What makes this house unique

The home is so so quiet and beautiful. Having open land to the left and back of the house allows us to see a lot of wildlife such as fox, deer & quail. We love the sound of the ocean as we stand on the front and back decks. From the front deck you can see views of Bodega Head and watch the boats going out fishing/crabbing. One thing we really love is going to the surround towns to look at antiques and wine tasting.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home was so relaxing and beautiful, I hope to visit it again next year

Stunning !!

  • 5 of 5

From the back deck is a gorgeous view of Tamales bay going into the Pacific . The front deck is an amazing sunset over the Pacific ocean every night . Great area with that fresh ocean breeze . The kids loved all the not so bashful deer running around everywhere . Went to the Armstrong redwoods in Guernville only an hour away . interior clean and comfortable with nice beds . overall awesome experience coming back next year !!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Booking a VRBO sometimes feels like a gamble - will the home be as great as it appears in the photos? Will it be comfortable and clean? That's why my guests and I were so excited when we showed up to find that 'A Shore Thing' greatly exceeded our expectations. It really felt like we were staying in a friend's home for the weekend. It was very clean and welcoming, and overall just a wonderful location/venue for a truly relaxing weekend.

Some of our favorite highlights:

- Everyone woke up the first morning raving about how comfortable the beds were (mattresses and bedding)!

- The layout of the kitchen/dining room makes it a great space to entertain and be together while some folks are cooking.

- The hot tub on the patio was a crowd pleaser - immaculately clean and very relaxing.

We really liked the fact that the property was just a short drive (~30 minutes) to great vineyards and tasting rooms, but far enough away from the popular areas of Sonoma to feel like we were secluded. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family, and I truly hope I'll have the opportunity to stay again in the future! Chad was a pleasure to work with and was always quick to reply to my questions leading up to our stay.

Felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home. Had everything we needed. Spacious and inviting. The hot tub was fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the deer in the meadow behind the house. The views were exactly as described. The owner was very quick to respond when i had a question. We would definitely recommend this home and would love to stay there again.

Owner's Response: Barbara, We are glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed staying at our home. We really tried to make guest feel at home by adding new mattresses and two king beds. We really appreciate you taking care of our home and would love to have you back when relaxation calls. Thank you again, A Shore Thing!

Thanksgiving retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent experience. We all thought the home was perfect for our Thanksgiving family retreat. The views are excellent and the house was all we could have hoped for. We had seven people and we all enjoyed the spacious rooms and the great beds. There was everything we needed in the kitchen for preparation of Thanksgiving dinner. We had a great time playing pool and hiking. I definitely would recommend this property. It was a pleasure renting from Chad.

Perfect for Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

We spent the 4th of July weekend here and our stay was exactly what we needed. "A Shore Thing" had everything we could want. We stayed with our two children and another family with two children and the house had everything we could need; games, movies; views of the ocean; plenty of room. The owners were extremely communicative and helpful, anytime we needed anything they were responsive and friendly. We will be booking this house when we come back here next year.

Cozy, comfortable weekend get-away home with breathtaking views

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at "A Shore Thing" over a long weekend, with 2 families and 4 children. The home is spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed with everything you could need for a get-away at the beach. The views from the living room and the deck are incredible. The well-stocked kitchen made cooking a pleasure, and the kids loved the downstairs game room (and the hot tub!). The beach was a mere 5 mins drive down a very steep hill (walking up/down is doable, but taxing!). Dillon Beach was a great launching point for our day trips to Point Reyes National Seashore (check out Bovine Bakery for breakfast!) and Bodega Bay (highly recommend Rocker Oysterfeller's for dinner!). The property owner was very helpful and set us up with everything we needed.
