The home is just as described and was very clean when we arrived. It’s well stocked with appliances for cooking and eating and we cooked several yummy meals in the kitchen. We rented whale watch for my mother’s 75th birthday and my siblings and I couldn’t have been happier. The views seriously can’t be beat. We’ve gone to Dillon beach my whole life and this cabin has better, more expansive views than any place we’ve ever stayed. The ping pong table was a huge hit! The only “issue” that did arise has nothing to do with the home or the owner or the property managers - as they were all amazing - but it has to do with the neighborhoods HOA. My brother and his wife were going to go camping after our weekend and so he had his truck camper (the kind that sits on the bed of the truck) on. At about 9pm my mom noticed someone peering into our cars and when she went out the guy took off. Instead of telling us that the HOA doesn’t allow any form of camper in the neighborhood he ran away and called the owner and property managers and probably woke them up. They both called to let us know about the rule and both were very nice about it and told us where he could park it near the neighborhood, which we did immediately. Anyhow - just a warning that the HOA is pretty intense. They also have a very strict “no more than 4 cars” policy per driveway which was fine for us but just know that ahead of renting! Again, on a whole the cabin was incredible and we would definitely rent again!

Manager's Response

So glad you had a great stay! It is such a wonderful home, happy it was the perfect fit for you family! The HOA is strict, but we do send out the paperwork ahead of time with the rules, one if which is "no campers". Anyway, really happy you had a sweet stay and would love to host you again.

Great location, great space, super clean. We hosted my friend’s low key bachelorette here and it was perfect. Great spaces to hang out as a group and play board games. A lot of folks had never been to California before and this gave them the best taste of how wonderful it can be!

I loved my stay at Whale Watch! The location simply cannot be beat. The view from the living room and front deck is postcard perfect and you really feel the majesty of the Pacific coast from the moment you arrive. It’s a short drive or medium walk to the beach, which was perfect for our needs. The kitchen was incredibly spacious and well designed. Fun amenities like the game room with ping pong and foosball tables added a lot to our stay, as did the hot tub. Two of the beds are pull out sofa beds, so plan accordingly. My friends didn’t mind but it could be tough for folks who want their own room or don’t want to share a bed etc. Overall, I’d say this place is a gem: great location, cozy home, and enough space for a medium group to savor the beauty of Tomales Bay and the Pacific Ocean.

Our trip is exactly what we needed! House was very clean! Upstairs is amazing - big open kitchen and family room. Very comfortable couches, beds, etc... We will be back for sure. Notes: Deer lots of deer...after the sun goes down they will be out in the back behind the grill and out front bedded down for the night.! I was surprised at how close they were to the house. We were given 1 towel per person for the whole visit - I wish they had some back up. Also important to note there is NO washer or dryer. Not a big deal but something to keep in mind. We are already looking at when we can go back.

We had a beautiful 3-day stay at Whale Watch. Loved the open and updated kitchen, living and dining space. Good views and house was very clean (appreciated!). Also had ocean view from the primary bedroom (nice!). Unfortunately, we did experience two separate hours-long power outages during our stay. Ended up playing games by lamp light. And no washer/dryer at home, just an FYI. Not listed but we were surprised by this. Property company very responsive and professional.

The house had plenty of room for our multi-generational family to spread out. The views were amazing. Our grandchildren were captivated by the seemingly endless parade of deer through the yard.

Hi Karen,
Thanks for sharing your experience! I'm very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at Whale Watch in Dillon Beach! The deer running rampant through the neighborhoods is one of my favorite aspects of Dillon! You were great guests and we look forward to hosting you again soon!

This is a great place to spend time in if you really want to “get away from it all”. The one of the most peaceful places I’ve ever visited and a wonderful place if you’re a Walker/hiker.

The pictures don’t do justice for this place, I loved the view! Almost every room has breathtaking ocean view. The house is well equipped for entertainment, large living room with open kitchen. Our host was very responsive, responded promptly to every question. Highly recommend the house and the host!
