About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Above and Beyond is a two story home in the Oceana Marin subdivision in the quaint little town of Dillon Beach.

The home is situated at the end of a level cul de sac yet up high enough to offer amazing views of the Pacific Ocean, Tomales Bay, Point Reyes Peninsula and Bodega Head. Our goal is to offer a 'home away from home' experience to relax, play games, watch movies, cook or BBQ your favorite family recipes (or try new local dishes!) and simply to create memories that will last a lifetime!

Whether at home, outdoors or at one of the many local attractions, there is something for everybody!

About Ms. Galati- Owner

Phil and Joanne have been married since 1987. We have a daughter and a son both in their twenties- we are not quite empty nesters but consider having a vacation rental part of our next 'season' of life together. We both grew up near the ocean and love the climate and relaxed atmosphere of the northern California coast. We live now in the Sierra foothills where we get the hot, dry summers so really enjoy the cooler coastal weather. We love sharing our home on the coast and consider it a blessing and a privilege to do so.

Ms. Galati- Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Ms. Galati- Owner chose Dillon Beach

With our family and friends we have rented homes in this area of the coast many times since 1998. We have many fond memories of each of the visits. We wanted to have a more permanent home to visit ourselves and to offer others the enjoyment of the coastal climate and activities that we have enjoyed so so much in the past

What makes this house unique

We love the fact that one can enjoy the ocean breezes and wonderful views even if you never feel like leaving the home. Perfect for a cozy weekend reading a book or playing games by the fire. We love to pick up some fresh oysters to BBQ on the deck and hike out along the beach or the trails that start from the top of Oceana....

**We are participants in Marin County's Clean Energy Deep Green Program, which provides you with 100% clean, renewable wind energy. We also installed solar July 2017 to cover most of the energy needs of our fully electric home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

(youngster entry) This place is so cool. Our grandparents came and they loved it but had to leave early we stayed one more night. We loved your pool table and especially your foosball table.

Amazing Family Experience

  • 5 of 5

We took my mom for a surprise 70th birthday trip to the coast. This house had everything we wanted and more. No detail left untouched and overall great experience. This house comes fully stocked with everything you need. Everyone had a great time and perfect family home for the 5 of us that stayed there. This will be our new go to home every time we come out to Dillon Beach. The views are amazing and all the amenities make this the perfect home. We are all ready planning our next trip this summer and going back to above and beyond cause thats the experience we had. Thank you for the great memories and we look forward to staying here again without a doubt!

Lovely Thanksgiving at Dillon Beach

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Above and Beyond was great - very relaxing and fun! The home is very well stocked (best I've ever seen at any vacation rental property we have stayed at). The beach (.7 miles from house) was great fun for the whole family during the day and the pool table in the downstairs room provided the evening entertainment! The only thing that could have been better would be a larger deck so that the whole family could enjoy the sunset outside together. Thank you!

Wonderful house with beautiful views from any window

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for a family of five. Great game room downstairs with a beautiful pool table and nice hook up for music. Game room also has crab nets which we used to do some crabbing at Lawsons landing. Plenty of comfortable seating in the main living room. Teo nice decks. One deck we used to BBQ oysters we picked up at Hogs Island. Hope to be back next year.
