Description

Welcome to The Lookout! A fully renovated 1941 beach bungalow in the center of the Dillon Beach village area!

For those looking for the perfect location for your next "flex-cation," The Lookout is perfectly equipped for you with fast and reliable WiFi with download speeds of over 100mbps!

Enter the front door and be immediately drawn to the light, bright and open common spaces before you, culminating with the far wall of sliding glass doors which open to the back deck and 180° ocean views! The open floor plan allows kitchen, living room, dining room and deck to flow together into a warm and welcoming space for the whole family to gather! Enjoy the spacious, fully equipped kitchen to cook delicious meals - from simple to gourmet - while family and friends gather at the large dining room table to share the day's beach adventures!

Or step out onto the back deck and take in the expansive views - from Tomales Bay to the south, Point Reyes and the glistening Pacific Ocean, all the way to Bodega Head to the north - while grilling up dinner on the Coyote gas grill with friends sitting at the outdoor picnic table nearby! Listen to the sounds of people laughing, dogs playing, and waves crashing on the beach below!

Rounding out the main level is a bedroom with a comfortable queen sized bed and closet, a beautifully tiled full bathroom, and entryway with coat closet and bench to sit upon while you kick off your sandy shoes!

To the left of the entryway is a staircase leading down to the lower floor. A gate at the top of the stairs helps keep roaming toddlers safe while at play, or contains furry family members to a single level of the home!

The lower floor features a TV lounge with large, comfy sectional sofa facing the fireplace, Smart TV and DVD player. For those colder, windy nights, turn on the fireplace and log into your favorite streaming services, or choose a DVD from the house collection!

Harry Potter fans will love the Potter-themed bunk bed room and reading nook! Walk past the Platform 9¾ poster to enter your very own corner of the Potter-verse, complete with all 7 books and even “the closet under the stairs!” Sure to amuse and entertain the younger generations in your group!

The lower level is complete with a second bedroom with full sized bed, closet and dresser, another full bath, and laundry closet with stackable washer and dryer. A small, wind-protected, patio sitting area is also accessible from the lower level for those who like a quiet, secluded nook from which to enjoy the fresh ocean air.

The Lookout has something to offer everyone in the family! You won't find a cleaner, more tastefully renovated and designed house in the village! And the views The Lookout offers are, likewise, unparalleled! Dog-friendly, a short walk to the beach, sleeping up to 8, 2 full baths, and all the personal touches you could ask for... We know you, your family and friends will want to return to The Lookout, making lifelong memories, for years to come!

This property is truly one of the best vacation rentals I’ve stayed in! Not only is the view beautiful and the house what we needed for a family of 5, but the owners had clearly thought through everything we might need or want to know, and provided it, from spices, dishes, and kitchen supplies (ziplock bags! tape! tin foil!) to helpful labels and a “useful information” placard and binder. I loved looking through the bookshelves full of books and we enjoyed the games, and my kids thought the little Harry Potter themed bunk bed nook was THE COOLEST thing ever. An outdoor hot water sprayer and a bench for washing our feet after the beach? Perfect. A timer controlled gas fireplace- clever and cozy. Lots of little things like that that added up to a fabulous stay. I’ve stayed in lots of vacation rentals but this one may just be my favorite. <br/><br/>A heads up for Dillon Beach newbies like us: Dillon Beach is pretty remote! Stop by somewhere on the way to grab your groceries- like maybe Petaluma? There’s not much of a normal grocery store in Dillon Beach or Bodega Bay to be found and what’s there is VERY expensive!
Outstanding! Glad you had a great stay!
Thanks,
stace

My family was seeking a place to unwind and reconnect without the stress of work and current events. The Lookout at Dillon Beach was the perfect setting to do just this. The moment we walked in the door and the panoramic ocean view greeted us, it felt like pounds of stress were lifted from our shoulders. We have three active kids and the Lookout was well equipped to handle their energy and joyful spirit without me having to worry about wrecking something.<br/>The house was light, bright, welcoming, and fully stocked with everything needed to allow us to cook, do laundry, and rinse off after spending the day on the shore. <br/>Walking to the beach from the home is so easy our 4 year old ran back and forth several times without complaint. <br/>We loved our experience so much, that the only way we were able to leave was to book another week for next year so we knew it was just a “see you later”, and not “goodbye.”<br/>
Thank you for sharing your experience! The Look Out is a magical space. Glad it was a perfect for your family
See you next time,

We had a wonderful stay in Dillon Beach, in this beautiful rental house. The view is captivating, the moment you walk in. It was almost better relaxing at the house with the view than being at the actual beach! We stayed with our baby and dog, and it was nice to be able to feel like we were at the beach the whole time. Only complaint would be the bed was uncomfortable for the overall price of the property, we would expect better. Thank you for being dog friendly!
Thank you for sharing your experience! We're so glad you enjoyed The Lookout. It is one of those houses that takes your breath away the moment you step through the front door! We will work on upgrading the bed. We have added a mattress topper to hopefully make it more comfy for future guests! Thanks and we look forward to hosting you again!

Beautiful. Charming. Great location. Lots of unique personal touches throughout the home which makes you feel at home. The views from the deck are first class. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare great meals. Really, everything is accounted for here. The only minor drawback were the somewhat loud/squeaky beds that weren’t the most comfortable. Truly a minor point in my book but I know bed comfort is important to many. Would still recommend to everyone. Thanks for a great stay.
So glad you enjoyed The Lookout!! The owners have already improved the bed situation - replaced the box spring to avoid the noise, added a plush comfy bed topper and lots of pillows! Thanks again and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

After a long year of cancelled plans, we decided we needed a little getaway by the beach. It was our first visit to Dillon Beach and we absolute loved it! The Lookout was comfortable and warm and a very short walk to the beach. My teenagers were comfortable and we had lots of space to relax and enjoy our stay! Kayaking on Tomales Bay, learning to shuck oysters in Bodega Bay, morning walks on the beach with the dog, amazing sunset views! A kitchen fully stocked with all the cutlery, dishes, glassware! Great linens! And we loved learning about the history of the home and the renovations! Highly recommend this spot to others! Thank you!

We had a pleasant family "beach week" at "The Lookout" - the main floor of the house is bright and fresh, renovations have been nicely done on the main level.<br/><br/>The biggest disappointment was with the bed - it was extraordinarily creaky, the mattress was not particularly comfortable and pillows were lumpy. I would not hesitate to return if it weren't for this flaw.
Thank you for your feedback! The owners have replaced the box spring to eliminate the creaks, added a very cushy mattress topper, and added pillows so guests have their choice of firm or soft - very nice upgrades!
We would love to host you again,
Thanks,
