Very spacious home with up to 7 sleeping areas and up to 12 different beds

One of the most beautiful homes on the hills of Dillon Beach with 3,600 square feet of luxurious living space.

The kitchen has large island with additional seating gas cook-top and all modern conveniences including gourmet non stick cookware.

The very large master suite offers a breakfast nook, chaise lounge, large private deck, large bath tub, TV, and DVD player. The master closet is so large that it doubles as a fifth bedroom with daybed and trundle. Three rooms have king-size beds, one room has two daybeds with pop-up trundles making into 2 king beds or 4 twin beds, the master closet also has one of these day beds. The sofa sections combine into larger than a king sized bed making a total of up to seven king-size sleeping surfaces or 10 separate comfortable mattresses. No one has to sleep on a sofa sleeper or futon. Luxurious linens, goose down pillows, and comforters are also provided.

The game room offers billiards, air hockey, foosball, darts, bar, and TV.

Deer and other wildlife are abundant in the area and can often be viewed from many rooms. There are miles and miles of hiking trails to interesting rock formations and hidden beaches with incredible views every step of the way.

Why Randy Knight chose North Coast California

We fell in love with Dillon Beach and searched for quite a while to find the right property. We knew in an instant this house was perfect for us the first time we saw it. It's huge and all of the rooms are very large, open and bright. The quality of construction and finishes are also far better than the vast majority of homes on the coast and the views are fantastic. Come enjoy our home. We're sure you will love it too!

What makes this house unique

The thing that sets this home apart from most is the spaciousness. It is perfect for any type of large group or family. We have several renters that come back on a regular basis for ladies groups; scrap booking; book clubs; seminar retreats and annual vacations. The huge living room and kitchen are perfect for entertaining and it is great to be able to seat 12 for dinner in the dining room.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The Sea Filly was a great place to stay! We have a group of 11 folks who all slept very comfortably. The ocean views were good, not the best in Dillon, but good. The house itself was very open, very comfortable and full of just about everything we needed. Pretty much all cooking supplies you could need are there. We cooked everything from homemade pasta to rib roasts and had plenty of space and utensils to do so. The beds were comfortable, too. An added bonus was that the rules for the house were pretty easy and not overbearing. I would recommend this place to stay for any group looking to be close with one another in a setting where the kitchen can be the focal point of the trip.

The place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Sea Philly is wonderful, clean , comfortable, and my plan is to return over and over. The owners have made sure to make it a home away from home. The views are spectacular and the house has extreme extras for entertaining.
