Overview

About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Romantic, Coastal, Arts and Crafts Style Cottage, originally built in 1918 by Zella Lee Gibson, as her painting studio. The cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners, a wine country interior designer and a general contractor. Perfect for the discriminating renter who wants the best of what Dillon Beach has to offer. Full Circle has received 178, FIVE STAR reviews. This is very, very rare anywhere on the VRBO website and unheard of in Dillon Beach.

'Full Circle' has an all redwood interior, 17 foot high vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, 180 degree ocean view, filled with period antiques, lighting and original artwork. The cottage art and decor is a homage to the original inhabitants of the area, the Coastal Miwok Indians. Known as 'the cutest house in the village', at Dillon Beach. Located just 200 strides from the beach down Bumble Bee Path.

Upon check-in, you are welcomed with a 2014 bottle of Cabernet wine, from the oldest family owned winery in California,, Gundloch Bundschu, Fuji spring water, sparkling Pellegrino water, a fresh cut bouquet of flowers from Second Street Flowers in Petaluma, Coast Roast coffee, a box of 4 custom Full Circle, Belgium chocolate truffles by Le Belge, live orchids, plush Turkish cotton bath sheets and robes, Terra Pure organic shampoo, conditioner and body wash and custom, hand made, custom organic Full Circle soaps from Hawaii. The fire is built and ready to light.

Wake up each morning to the sun streaming in the magnificent front gable, stained glass, church window. Watch the waves roll in on the beach from your ocean view meditation loft. Spend your days relaxing in the plush Lloyd Flanders furniture on the patio and upper deck overlooking the ocean. Enjoy a sparkling clean brand new Hot Springs Spa hot tub with a whitewater ocean view and watch the sun set on the ocean. BBQ and have dinner under the stars on the deck. Make some memories while getting cozy around the outdoor fireplace with trellis mounted heaters. Fall asleep in the plush bed to the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach.

The bed, bedding and bathroom should be the best part of any rental experience and we deliver it. The new pillow-top, queen size bed is made with 800 thread count Egyptian cotton sheets, down comforters, Coiuchi organic cotton pillow shams and bedspread, down pillows and Pendleton Chief blanket. The bathroom is behind a stained glass door from 1870 and is made of the very rare, and "high end", Calacatta Italian marble. “High-end” is a term that goes hand in hand with “rare”, as limited availability and high demand and translates to a greater expense and aesthetic. Calacatta Marble is exceptional in appearance and also exceptional in that it is only available from one quarry in the world, located in Carrara, Italy. The floor is 12"x 12" Calacatta marble with radiant heat and a basket weave border. There is a claw foot soaking tub, double Cedar vanity with a Calacatta top, generous size Callacatta marble shower with a rain head, basket weave floor and a 3/8" thick glass shower door enclosure.

A one of a kind place for that special occasion. The cottage has been featured in the Travel section of the New York Times, 'Elegant Bungalows' by Bethany Lyttle, on February 8th, 2008. It was also used as the set for the short film by Tarik Haddad, 'The Sound of a Yellow Flower', which played in the London Film Festival and the Dubai Film Festival's, among others. Gary William Kohler wrote and recorded a song about the cottage, 'Full Circle', that is included on his CD, 'Nowhere to be Found'.

This cottage is pure luxury, immaculate cleanliness, high design and romantic bliss.

The cottage is meticulously maintained to the highest cleaning standards. It is cleaned with eco-friendly products for 5 to 6 hours between each guest and deep cleaned once a month for five hours. Down pillows are washed regularly and have pillow covers under the pillow cases. The brand new Hot Springs spa has a sophisticated ozone filter system and is also thoroughly completely cleaned between each guest and maintained monthly by Hot Springs Spa Valet Service.

The cleaning fee of $125 is a separate fee and paid at check-out.

Robin is an interior designer who has been featured in the Home Section of the San Francisco Chronicle, the New York Times, Details magazine and the books Sonoma Valley Style, and California Wine Country and several other publications.

Why Tom chose Dillon Beach

Dillon Beach is an old fishing village built right after the turn of the century. You feel like your 1,000 miles from 'civilization' when you are there. It is like 'the town that time forgot' perched on the edge of the world, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Tomales Bay.

This restored, all redwood artist studio, is truly a one-of-a-kind and the perfect place for a romantic getaway or just simple peace, quiet and solitude.

What makes this cottage unique

Historic property. Dramatic backyard ocean views, smells and sounds. All Redwood interior, 17' vaulted ceiling, loft, short walk to the beach. Good bones.

Happy Couple

  • 5 of 5

Once we arrived at the cottage we were speechless. The careful attention to detail from the craftsmanship of the home to the decor and amenities was amazing. I've personally worked in some very high end expensive places...some that go for over 3,000.00 a night and I would choose this place over those any day! For a couple it is one of the most romantic, charming place we could have imagined. I just want to say thank you to Tom for the opportunity to stay and share this wonderful place. The pictures were hard to believe but once we showed up it was apparent that the owners and caretakers go through a great deal to make this place special.

Magical

  • 5 of 5

This is my second stay at Full Circle and the improvements to the bathroom are stunning. The first day it was so cold and windy, we spent most of the day inside, with a fire burning, watching the light move through the house, reading, cooking, resting. The back patio was sheltered from the wind and we did some sunbathing. The house is like a warm hug, with everything that you need, all in the right place. I even took a nap on the warm marble floor. Thanks again for a lovely stay.

Full Circle, Dillon Beach Ca.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary at Full Circle.

We're still talking about what a special place it was and all the unique touches and amenities!

One of our three days there, we never left the house except to take a stroll on the expansive Dillon Beach. We read, luxuriated in the hot tub, napped,

cooked and watched the waves roll in. One of the most relaxing days we could remember!

Perfect long weekend

  • 5 of 5

Wish we had more time to stay. We could not have asked for anything more. Such a great job improving what was already a cute house into a really charming beach house that feels like your own personal resort. Inside is beautiful and the outside space in the back was ideal for hanging out all day. We’re ready to book again. Thanks for making our stay so special!
