    About this property

    Ocean Views! Upscale Home Steps From Beach. Hot Tub! Wi-fi! Kid Friendly!

    Romance retreat is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with fantastic views of Bodega Bay, Tomales Head, and the ocean. A short 5 min walk (1.5 blocks) from the beach, it has been completely updated and remodeled. Pottery barn furniture and bedding, alongside some vintage finds, create a warm and comfortable environment. The house is loaded with toys for kids to play with, both at the beach and in the home. This house is perfect for 1 large family, 2-3 couples to get away or 1-2 families to share. Upstairs is completely open, with one main room that includes kitchen, dining, and living room. There are 2 bedrooms with queen beds in the back and a full bathroom on one side. The dining room table has 2 huge picture windows surrounding it that provide expansive views of the ocean and Bodega Bay. The *separate* downstairs is a spacious in-law unit with 2 twin beds and a full bathroom. A hot tub and outdoor shower are on the side of the house. Laundry is available for stays of 7 days or greater. Wireless internet provided. All beds have memory foam toppers and are super comfortable. Maximum 6 guests. This home is perfect for enjoying the beautiful Marin coast. A short drive away you can pick up oysters and clams from Hog Island Oyster Co. Or get your own by renting a boat from Lawson's Landing! Surf fishing, mussels, pier crabbing, and clam flats are minutes away. There is great surfing and kite surfing. For kids there are sand dunes, endless beach, and playing in the surf. We have all sorts of beach toys and boogie boards for you to use. There are also toys and games for playing indoors. Dillon beach has so much to offer, we love spending time here with friends and family. Please, to keep our home in great shape and our friendly neighbors happy, we have a No Tolerance Party Policy. We are sorry to sound harsh, but after a sorority rented it and had about 20 people staying there, we wanted to be explicit about our expectations. We try to keep our home as a lovely, restful haven designed for guests who want to enjoy a quiet stay enjoying family and friends. As such, we cannot accommodate parties or undeclared pets. The violation of this policy will result in a $500 fine and immediate vacation of the property. A maximum of 6 adults can be accommodated during your stay.

    You'll have the entire home to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

    4/5 Good

      Great location, good amenities.

      We rented the Dillon Beach property for a Wedding in Tomales Bay. We had a great stay, 6 adults were easily accommodated. The location was good, the view of the ocean was OK. We did have two small issues: The property was very musty when we first arrived, almost to an unbearable extent. 45 minutes after opening all the doors and windows, it was much better. While one would expect a certain amount of moisture due to the close proximity to the ocean, this seemed a bit excessive. The second was the rather poor working order of the hot tub. Many of the Jets were either clogged or inoperable, and the pump pressure was very weak. I’ve had several hot tubs over the years, and this one seemed to be on its last legs. We were all very disappointed with this issue. Neither of these issues would prevent me from recommending the property to others, we all had an excellent time, and slept well with the ocean breeze and sound of the waves in the background.

      4/5 Good

        Description of house

        The house does have a separate bedroom with two twin beds. But what is not clear in the description is that the bedroom is completely separate from the main house. You actually have to go outside and down the stairs to access it through a separate entrance. If you have little kids you might not like the set up because you will not be able to access that room from the main house.

        5/5 Excellent

          Comfortable house , great location. Walk to the beach.

          Nice home , everything is upgraded. Hot tub worked well .

          5/5 Excellent

            Comfortable, clean and with all the amenities!

            We had a wonderful stay here! The house was very clean, had comfortable beds and a well-stocked kitchen for all our cooking needs. Just a short walk from the beach, so kids and dogs were very happy. The owners very promptly responded when we had a question. We’ll definitely be back!

            5/5 Excellent

              Great. The back door would not close, the handle is broken.

              Great, the back door handle was broken and would not close.
