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 2004

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.

This was a pleasurable experience through and through. Randy was extremely easy to work with and answered all of our questions.

The house itself was perfect. We had 10 people and everyone was comfortable. The kitchen was spacious enough to do all you needed.

And to top it off, the bed was probably to most comfortable bed I've ever slept on.

Tempurpedic with a feather bed top.

We will definitely be back.

excellent retreat

  • 5 of 5

I booked this for my company weekend retreat. We are 11 people and wanted a place where we could relax, cook together and have some productive strategy discussions. The Seafilly house was perfect. There were comfortable beds for all of us and a large kitchen/dining area. The living room looks out onto the ocean so we could still enjoy the scenery during our discussions and workshops. Randy was very responsive and answered all our questions. The space was well stocked with everything we needed. The foosball and pool table were an added bonus. We'd love to come back here for our next retreat.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review Sabiha! We have a lot of companies and social groups that use the Sea Filly for meetings and retreats and many come back every year and some several times a year. We get a lot of compliments about the spaciousness and ability to have different areas for break out sessions. We look forward to your next visit. Sincerely, Randy

Fabulous Coastal Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 10, children and grandchildren, stayed at Sea Filly for a long weekend celebrating my milestone 70th. The house was spacious enough to accommodate all of us comfortably, with a large kitchen and dining room for indoor meals. It was a perfect. The adults stayed up late one night playing one of the many games in the cabinet. My sons took turns with breakfast and dinner. We drove down to Nick's Cove one night for dinner. Short, beautiful drive and good seafood. This is a great location with wonderful accommodations. Highly recommended.

Great home with an amazing view

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this home to celebrate his 30th birthday. There was 13 of us all together and everyone fit very comfortably in this home. I was a little disappointed to learn that the jets in the jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom did not work and neither did the steam function in the shower. The hot tub was set to sleep mode when we arrived and we didn't figure out how to take it off sleep mode until the night before we left. I wish someone had set the hot tub to standard function before we arrived. We ran a little behind schedule on checkout day and when 11 am rolled around their cleaning lady arrived promptly. She was nice enough to give us 5 minutes to finish packing up. Overall this home is very nice and worth what we paid to stay for the weekend, imo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review Kayla. I wasn't aware that the jets were not working in the tub in the master suite so we will get that fixed right away. The Steam shower has not worked in years so we don't advertise that as an amenity. The hot tub goes into sleep mode after long periods of inactivity and there are instructions on the wall next to the hot tub and in our instruction binder to show all of the hot tub operations. I will look into adding a sign that concisely instructs how to get it out of sleep mode. We hope to have you back with us very soon.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

A group of 10 of us stayed at Sea Filly for a long weekend, and it was absolutely perfect. The house is huge and very comfortably fit all of us as well as our cars. My favorite feature was the very large kitchen which made it easy for everyone to prepare and enjoy food with plenty of space. The living room with fireplace and big screen TV is the perfect place to watch a game. Even though we're in our 30s, we all loved acting like kids in the game room, where we spent a lot of our time. Also easily the biggest hot tub I've ever been in :) All of my guests keep telling me how great the place was. Would definitely go back!
