Dillon Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4+ Bedrooms, 4 Full Baths, (Sleeps 12)

If you're going to go to the coast, why not go all the way? Don't stop a few hundred feet away and admire the ocean from a distance when you can be perched on the bluffs directly above as it fills your senses!

Freshly renovated in 2013, the Sea Horse is now ready for your fantastic vacation! The new Hot Tub; Movie Theater; Stove; Refrigerator; Grill; Furnace; Furniture and paint are ready for you to enjoy! This spectacular home features 4 large bedrooms with Cal King sized beds and 4 full baths. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have full baths en suite and two of those rooms are very spacious rooms with incredible views. There are 3 other areas that can be used as overflow bed rooms for a total of 7 different sleeping areas. One of those areas is a beautiful 3D movie theater/media room with a fire place and a 14' projection wall that feels like you are in an IMAX theater or you can opt for a 10' drop down projection screen, comfy theater seats and room for a queen sized AeroBed. The living room has a queen sized sofa sleeper and the family room has two full sized futons and a single fold out bed.

The bright open floor plan offers a wonderful great room with soaring beamed ceilings and 18' windows, a large living room, fully stocked chefs kitchen with island and the dining room has a table for 14 plus a counter that seats 4 more. The great room opens to a huge deck that commands the most spectacular views imaginable of waves crashing onto the California coast. A second family room below has another deck with unobstructed ocean views and a brand new hot tub just below that. The family room has some folding partitions that can be set up in minutes for privacy so that the room can be used as a 5th bedroom. All of the well appointed bathrooms feature contemporary maple cabinets and natural stone tile. Two of the master suites have huge showers and the main bathroom has a deep jetted tub.

Bring your Tesla! We installed a 240 volt EV Charging station so now you can get a full charge for your electric car in just hours.

Please see our web site for information about our full concierge program including person chefs, caterers, massages, Yoga instructors & personal trainers as well as great information about local restaurants & wineries and fun things to do in the area.

Here are some comments from our first couple of renters:

'it is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed at on the coast'

'The location is second to none. Right on the beach, watching and listening to the ocean. '

'Your home is spectacular! We look forward to coming back again and again!'

'Huge wow factor when you walk in the front door. This beach home exceeds all expectations!'

'Oh and about that theatre....

We ventured into the theatre room last night after watching the sunset in the hot tub.

(Yeah life is tough out here).

I frankly thought I'd not be interested.

Movies? Why?

Oh My goodness.

This ruins EVERYthing!

Holy cow I had no idea.! i thought it would be blurry and distorted. We are home movie watching folks.

HD /blueray/Bose sound types. But this systems hits it outta the park. How are we ever going to go home and watch movies on a television!?! You've ruined us!

LOL

What fun!

And those chairs and beanbags! Brilliant!

Thank you'

'the pictures on the site are great but they don't do it justice! We will treat it as our own.'

'Very clean, upscale, well stocked, but also very comfortable. Loved the decor. The beds are wonderful with down pillows and cozy duvets to snuggle into and listen to the ocean at night.'

'Truly magical.'

'We will recommend this place to all of our friends, and we can not wait to come back!!'

About Randy Knight

Randy and Sheryl Knight are Realtors in Sonoma County and live a short distance away on their horse ranch in Sebastopol.

Randy Knight purchased this house in 2013

Why Randy Knight chose North Coast California

WE have owned a beautiful home high on the hills in Dillon Beach for over 11 years and have enjoyed it immensely. However we always found ourselves walking and driving down to be closer to the ocean. When we saw this fantastic home with this incredible location and basically it's own beach we pulled every string we could to buy it. We love it so much it hurts to have it rented and not be able to be there. Something about the way the house is filled with light and warmth and the sights and sounds of the ocean is truly magical. And I finally get the movie theater of my dreams. You may not be coming to the beach to watch movies but if it happens to be a dreary coastal day you can escape to an entirely different world right down the hall. I'm afraid that you will feel an emptiness in your chest when it comes time to leave but you can always come back.

What makes this house unique

There are no other homes that I know if in Dillon Beach that offer the location, views, access and amenities available at Sea Horse. We have 7 different areas that people can sleep in. 3 of the the 4 bedrooms have their own full bathroom in the room and the 4th bathroom has a jetted tub with a great shower. Thanks to a huge outcropping of bedrock, our property has not suffered from erosion like most of our neighbors. So we actually have a large back yard to enjoy right on the bluffs. Just don't run too far to catch that ball. Rather than tucked into a dark corner somewhere, our new hot tub offers unobstructed ocean views. We also have a fantastic open Great Room on the main upper level and a second family room which also has wonderful views just below. Then of course there is the huge movie theater which just puts this house on an entirely different level for Dillon Beach.

Outstanding friends and family gathering spot

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Horse met all of our expectations, and provided us with a truly memorable weekend. We had a mix of couples and kids, and everyone found the house to be perfect. The hot tub was great, the kitchen truly had everything that we could have asked for.

Really incredible movie screening room downstairs that was loved by both the kids and the grown up. Only a five minute walk to a mostly private/local's beach, and a 10 minute walk to the main Dillon Beach.

It was a holiday weekend, and we had a minor issue come up and I called the owner who picked up, and had someone out on a Sunday in less than an hour. Really spectacular service.

Perfect Work Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Horse house was the perfect setting for our company retreat. We very comfortably fit 6 adults and 4 kids in the house, and Randy was extremely helpful in suggesting we rent the house next door for the rest of our group. You cannot beat the gorgeous views here. The kids loved everything: hot tub, board games, movie theater, proximity to the beach, the local deer roaming around -- in fact, the adults loved all these things too! The kitchen and dining area were perfect for hosting a large dinner party. We truly enjoyed ourselves and plan to return next year for more rejuvenation and relaxation!

Owner's Response: We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay Hannah. We have a lot of companies that love the house and all of the sleeping options but it's nice to know that the kids loved it too. Thanks, Randy

Four Couples on a Biennial gathering

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Horse at Dillon Beach was great in many respects. The sleeping accommodations for our group of eight were outstanding. The kitchen was state of the art and allowed for us to have all our breakfasts and some dinners together with a view of the ocean. The House is tastefully decorated and the entertainment center is amazing! We traveled in to San Francisco one day for a tour and another day took the ferry from Sausalito to the Embarcadero for a walking and cable car experience. We visited the Muir Woods, the Napa and Sonoma Valleys, and Point Reyes. Several excellent local restaurants included Nick's Cove and Oysterrockerfellas. The views from the deck and back shore line provided some great photo ops. We certainly recommend the Sea Horse as both a very comfortable house and one that offers excellent sight seeing opportunities.

Soaring Seahorse

  • 5 of 5

Seahorse rental sits perched high above the sea with an open knockout panorama that feels like the top deck of a large cruise ship. The views are on par with the best that even Big Sur serves up--and we have been to Big Sur on several occasions. It's just natural to settle in, get cozy, click on your favorite music and stare out at the endless view. Nevertheless, its a short walk down to the ocean where the big rollers crash into the shore.

There were five of us who stayed for three days--all of the beds and sheets are of top quality. We cooked, baked, grilled and had cocktails----every kitchen utensil, gadget, glassware etc. for food preparation and consumption was available. The bathrooms and furnishings were great.

The huge movie theatre experience was of top quality ( up to date rectangle rather than a square ) and we stayed up way too long every night to eat popcorn and watch our favorite flicks. Don't think twice--just go.

Best house in Dillon Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our annual Friendsgiving in this beautiful home and we can't wait to go back! I have stayed in several properties in Dillon Beach and this is by far the most spectacular. This home is so well thought out and equipped for comfort and relaxation. The beds were so comfortable and no detail was missed. Not to mention, the views in the home are simply breathtaking from every level. The chefs in our group raved about the kitchen- there was plenty of space for 4 adults to create a beautiful meal, while the rest of us lounged on the couch or sat at a bar stool.

Randy was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful before and during our stay. It was clear that he wanted us to enjoy our time at this beautiful home!

I can't wait to return and to sit in that hot tub, again!

Truly, truly spectacular

  • 5 of 5

My parents and aunt visited for my 40th birthday celebration, and we decided to rent a house on the ocean for the entire family as an alternative to hotels or B&Bs. While I have been to houses at Dillon Beach in the past, nothing can compare to the experience we had at this property. Granted, the amazing weather had something to do with it, but I can tell you without reservation that this house is absolutely spectacular. It's well-appointed, spacious, recently remodeled, obviously very well cared for by the owners, has a truly outstanding movie theatre room, and has some of the most breathtaking views imaginable. There were two very, very slight drawbacks: 1) the kitchen ovens and deck grill didn't work quite as expected (thermostat issues), and 2) I would really advertise this property as having two master suites, not three. Technically, yes, there are three bedrooms w/ ensuites, but one of them is located in the back of the house with no view and few windows. However, overall, I honestly can't think of a better property in the area. The owners are extremely professional, prompt, and attentive. Two very, very big thumbs up. Hope to be back soon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review Eric. I will see if there is something I can add to better describe the rooms but every room is special in it's own way.
