Overview

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 North Coast California

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.

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.

Beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time in Dillan Beach. The electricity went out for the whole community (16 hours) which put a damper on our meal plans, but certainly not the fault of this great home. Futons were just okay for those sleeping on them, the rooms were great. Plenty of towels and bedding. Kitchen had everything we needed. You'll have a great time at this home.

Great property for large family

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home! This house is very clean and has everything you might need. The kitchen has plenty of appliances and dishes. Rooms were all cozy and comfy. The kids enjoyed the PlayStation and the game room. They loved that they could plug their phones into the speakers for their music. The owners are quick to respond. We would definitely stay here again:)

Fantastic location, awesome host

  • 5 of 5

I must say it is a very beautiful location. The host made it even more pleasurable for us by having a lot of attention to detail of things anyone may need last minute especially when traveling with kids. The beach is close by and so are some of the famous known spots like Bodega Bay, Point Reyes. Will love to stay again in the future and highly recommend to all

The name, Above and Beyond, says it all.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for four high school girlfriends to reconnect after 50 years. The home was lovely. It had everything we needed and more. The beds were comfortable. The home was exceedingly clean. The kitchen was well stocked. And the views were amazing. The owner was a delight and definitely went "above and beyond" to make our stay wonderful. Can't wait to return!
