"We absolutely love this house
We have stayed at Breaking Waves many times and thoroughly enjoy it every time. I love how you get the feeling like you are outside even when you are inside the house. The views are amazing with all the windows. Can't wait to go back again! "

"Our Beautiful Stay at Breaking Waves
The vacation stay was wonderful. Breaking Waves was the perfect rental, and the scenery was incredible. The wild life we were able to see a memory that my family will always remember. On my wife's Birthday, we used the binoculars at the rental and watched 4 dolphins swimming in the ocean. I have been coming to Dillions Beach for years and never saw dolphins, that was a sight to see. The rental itself was nice and cozy, great kitchen, space and all around perfect for the beach. The parking was a bit steep, but it worked. The bathroom, living room and bedrooms and beds were great. I will definitely go back soon as we all had a time of peace and relaxation. I would recommend this rental to anyone, and I say this with sincerity, and not just saying it. Breaking Waves was awesome!"

"Breaking Waves - a nice break
This property worked well for bringing the dogs with us on vacation. The plexy glass walled in deck allowed the dogs to view everything safely and knocked down the wind sufficiently for us creating even more views. The location is great with an easy beach access down the street. "
Aug 05, 2018 - James H., Vallejo, CA

We had an absolute BLAST staying at Breaking Waves!! The place was amazing and the management was fantastic! "

"July 2018 vacation
We had a wonderful time here. The house was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen well-equipped for cooking. The location was close to good hiking and lovely beaches. The views from the house are unbelievable. We would definitely return."

"Annual Stay at Dillon Beach
Perfect location for my annual beach retreat. "

Very nice"

"Great Spot for Quick Getaway
Convenient to the East Bay, this Oceana Marin house is perfectly sized for two couples with a relaxation agenda. It's unassuming among some of the newer mini-mansions (a quality we prefer), quiet, private and perched right above the Pacific. Beach access is a minute's walk away on a social trail, and the deck is wind-protected. The open kitchen is well designed and tricked out with high quality gear. In our tradition, Dillon Beach retreats are for conversation and cuisine, but if you need digital entertainment, Breaking Waves has a great setup. The SONOS system allowed us to create an eclectic soundtrack. We'll be back!"

"It would have been very nice if there hadn't been construction
I wasn't going to write a review but if this will stop the "reminder" emails, here you go. Nice house. Amazing view. Property management place neglected to tell us there was construction going on in the house, next door and around the neighborhood. Construction workers showed up on first morning. After complaining, we were able to get an offer of a one night refund. The property management representatives were unapologetic and condescending in follow-up emails. Will not be staying in any of their properties again."

"Wonderful Ocean View Retreat
This property was exactly what we were looking for and was as described. There were good views from the master bedroom, kitchen and living area. One could see rolling waves from both inside and outside the unit. The deck was great for a dog. The beach was about a 10 minute walk away. The unit was well equipped. The description and pictures are accurate. There is a guest book and those visiting have been very pleased. The carpet is light in color so we took extra care with our dog when returning from the beach but everything worked out fine. We look forward to returning some day to Breaking Waves!"

"Beautiful Norcal Coast
Amzing rental with gorgeous views of the coast. Minute walk to the beach and close enough to wine tasting. "

"Wonderful cottage with fantastic views!
We loved our stay at Dillon Beach and it's one of the best vacations we've had! The property is absolutely beautiful and perfect for small families. It's so hard to find smaller places to stay and we loved that this was just the right size. The house was so clean and quality of the furniture and bedding was surprising (no lumpy mattresses here!). The place felt like home and not some dusty vacation place that sits empty for a long time. The views off the deck and the amenities were perfect. The heater in the house is great for chilly nights. We were there during a strange, record breaking heat wave and the house was a bit hard to cool down - luckily we brought a fan which helped somewhat. Sitting outside was great though and helped keep us cool. :)"

Awesome and exceptional thank you "

"Perfect Beach Cottage
Perfect Beach House for our family. Quiet area, beautiful scenery, and the 180 view from the deck was awesome! House was fully stocked for all our needs. Management was extremely helpful and professional. One hour to San Francisco and close to wine country. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing place to stay."

"The view alone makes this a must go to home!!
This was an amazing place to stay !! The view from the deck is unbelievable . We are already looking into returning to this beautiful place."
Aug 01, 2017 - Shaun A., Antelope, California

"Breaking Waves
Truly beautiful view and fun to clamber down to the very secluded beach. Kitchen set up perfectly for cooks, with all the necessaries. A brief note, the second bedroom with the bunk will really only sleep two. The place is set up for a couple with two children. Would be nice to have a pull out sofa for a fifth guest or for a group like us grandma, mom, and two kids. "

"Great house, my mistake not to read the contract carefully
Invited my family for lunch and the security guy knocked on the door and said they all had to leave. My fault, totally....but one of the most humiliating days of my entire life."
Jul 06, 2017 - Grace Hodges C., Apache Junction, AZ

"Beautiful home and Breathtaking View
We stayed in the Breaking Waves house in June and had an amazing vacation. The view is breathtaking ! The location is perfect. The wraparound balcony is incredible. The house is very close to Dillon Beach (10 minutes walk, or a few mins of drive) which is lovely. Dillon Beach is very dog friendly and our two dogs loved it. The house was very clean, very comfortable and perfect size for us. Everything worked great including the TV and all appliances in the kitchen, and the Wifi connection was very good. The management company checked in on us on our first day to let us know that if we needed anything they were there to help, which was very nice. Overall, we had a wonderful time, loved the house, and will definitely return ! "

"Beatiful View from Thanksgiving stay 11/24/2016
We went for Thanksgiving and was pleasantly surprised that the kitchen was completely stocked with whatever you need, right down to the meat thermometer. The beds were super comfortable as was the bedding. The satellite was down and it couldn't be fixed during our stay. Not being able to watch TG football and the morning news was a bummer. I had to keep following up for a price adjustment but still haven't received anything. I do understand things happen but TV was advertised and included in the pricing. Better follow up and communication from management would have been nice. Other than that the place was amazing and perfect."

"Breaking Waves Sept 16-21
We very much enjoyed our stay. The house was in good shape and well supplied. And the view was extraordinary."
Sep 23, 2016 - John O., Salt Lake City, UT

"Relaxing retreat
Beautiful views and easy walk to the beach and town. Location is perfect to relax and get away but close enough to drive to Bodega Bay, Guerneville, Sebastapol for hiking, wine tasting...
Aug 31, 2016 - , San Mateo, CA

"Rainy get away
We really enjoyed ourselves, however we were not able to connect the WiFi even though we called the management company more than once. Also because of the torrential rains and wind the roof leaked quite extensively. This did not affect our stay (other than listening to the plink plink of water into pots and bowls), but management didn't seem to take it very seriously. If this were my home, I'd expect the company I hired to follow up immediately to document where the rain was coming in, to check for property damage and figure out how to protect my belongings from further damage."

"Beautiful View, House falling apart
The house had a beuatiful view, 180 degree ocean view. Stuff broke almost every day. The heaters didn't work. The WiFi didn't work. The light over the kitchen table didn't work. The circuit breaker kept getting tripped.
The rental company was helpful and came out to fix everything, but it would have been much nicer to have a home where everything worked without calling the company."

"Christmas vacation
As usual our 5 day stay at breaking waves was outstanding. Weather was beautiful especially during walks on the beach.

A few suggestions for the owners or management company to address:
1. Heating - the electric space heaters are woefully insufficient and need upgrading.
2. Bathroom faucet is leaking and needs fixing.
3. Ants are present in the kitchen and need addressing. Leave some ant spray for renters to use if necessary. "

"Weekend Getaway
We enjoyed our stay. "
Nov 26, 2015 - Rodger L., Sacramento, CA

"One of the best!
Over the past 20 years we've rented several homes in the Dillon Beach area and Breaking Waves is one of the best! The house was clean, well stocked and comfortable. I cannot wait to book it again. "
Nov 10, 2015 - Steven B., Lincoln, CA

My daughter and I surprised my husband with a weekend get-away at the beach for his birthday. The house was an added surprise for him and we all enjoyed it very much. The house was clean and had everything we needed and then some. The views are to die for and the weather was perfect and we loved that we could bring our furry friends with us. We spent our weekend taking in the view from the deck and walking on the beach. We hope to return very soon."
Nov 03, 2015 - Tracie C., Orangevale, CA

"Pacific Coast Getaway
Loved it. Beautiful every day. Cooler and windier than we'd hope as couldn't
stay on the deck very long. Otherwise, just great."
Oct 28, 2015 - , Forest, VA

"Incredible Getaway
My wife and I spent a long weekend at Breaking Waves and loved it. It's the perfect location for venturing up and down PCH 1. We visited oyster farms, went sailing in Bodega Bay and hit wineries along the Sonoma Coast. All the cities in Napa and Sonoma valleys are within an hour drive, but there's so much to do up and down the coast, you might not even want venture too far.

The pictures don't do this place justice. You just can't get tired of the view. The beach is walk-able from the house and it is clean and not crowded. The house is well appointed and up-to-date and the kitchen has everything you need. Cell coverage in the area is spotty at best, but that turned out to be a nice break for us.

Our only regret it that we didn't stay longer. But we'll be back for sure."
Oct 08, 2015 - Brian M., Dallas, TX

"Perfect beach cottage
Perfect long weekend retreat with our grandchildren. Dillon Beach has long been a favorite place of ours. The sunsets were spectacular and for the most part, the weather was perfect. Since the house in on the bluff, it would be pretty windy in the afternoon, but I would still give an overall rating of 9.9/10."
Sep 06, 2015 - Mary K., Tuolumne, CA

"great ocean front home
This house was just perfect for a getaway. It's right on the ocean, a few minute walk down to the dog friendly beach. It's very quiet and comfortable."
Aug 15, 2015 - , Redwood City, Ca

"Gorgeous view .
Good , the house just right for a family, the beach was walking distance , loved the view from the windows and deck , we had and ant problem for 2 days , In which we battled but other then that the stay was great will stay there agine , "
Aug 11, 2015 - , Stockton , Ca

The views were incredible! The home was quaint and comfortable. We will definitely look into renting this home again!The only thing we did not know upon arrival was that there really is no cell service, and their land line was not working... but it was kind of nice not having phone service!"
Jul 30, 2015 - Cynthia H., Pollock Pines, California

"Visiting Canyon stay
The cabin had a killer view. Weather was cold and ****** so did not enjoy the beach or outside much.
The unit needs some upkeep. The decks were awful, old, soft boards, needs pressure washed and stained. Big hole INSIDE the house by the dining room table. Garage door lock hanging. Loved the view as it was breathtaking but the house just looks not loved anymore."
Jul 27, 2015 - Patty F., Nineveh, IN

This house has everything one would hope for from its location to the incredibly thoughtful kitchen accessories. Truly as beautiful as the pictures. Does need to ever change. We will return."
Jul 17, 2015 - Sheila S., Somerset, CA

"Welcomed Retreat
Enjoyed our stay."
Jun 18, 2015 - , Lincoln, CA

Comfortable place. Incredible views. Highly responsive property manager. If you need to retreat, then stay here, rest and get lost in a moment at the beach. "
Mar 05, 2015 - Peter R., Oakland, Ca

"Breaking Waves" is a welcoming property with gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean and a deck that perfect for listening to waves, reading a good book, and lingering."

"Family Escape to the beach
Family of 4 including 2 boys, 13 and 11, fulfilling annual family tradition to break away from busy schedules over Labor weekend and be just us. Boys rated this holiday weekend better than anything else over the (very busy, fun, interesting) summer. Much time spent on pretty-much-private cove. Boogie boarding galore. Moonlight runs on the beach with our headlamps, admiring the stars. Kite flying. Board games. Views beautiful. We all agreed lose a star for the bathroom/shower. Otherwise truly awesome."
Sep 11, 2014 - Susan A.

"beautiful View
The place had one of the best views you could get. But the house itself needs a lot of help. Island in kitchen was so sticky you could not use and nothing to clean it with. 2 rolls of toilet paper and no towels or extra bedding was a joke. Even at a motel 6 you get more than that. Furniture in bedrooms were very outdated and bathroom needs a lot of work. I have rented many homes and never had as many restrictions and so little extras you usually get by going this route instead of a hotel. Again they view was gorgeous but if you want more than that not worth the money for just a view. I feel very unhappy about the total experience. Sorry I wish I had more nice things to say."

Thanks for sharing your home. I would Dillon Beach. Great location. We met a lot of local residents that were so nice and kind. Great location for children. Thank you for the memories."

"wall to wall view
We had a wonderful stay and plan to return. Perfect for a family of 4 or 5 with a main bedroom and a kids room with bunkbeds. Completely unobstructed ocean views from left to right. "
Feb 26, 2014 - Eric E., Oakland, Ca

"Wonderful Getaway
We wanted to stay on the beach where we could hear the waves, have beach access not too far away, bring our puppies, enjoy a quiet, restful time and just relax with all the comforts of home - mission successful and looking forward to going back soon!"
Feb 15, 2014 - Debbi v., guerneville, ca

"Best Location!
We came for Thanksgiving 2013 and had a Great time! Stayed for 5 days. The sun was out EVERY day. The beach is a 5 min walk. The home overall is in good shape. Has a Ton of utensils in the kitchen. The garbage can is tiny, so be prepared to bring home a little trash... Also, strap the bungy cord so animals don't get into it and then you have to clean everything up in the driveway... Called in a water rescue and CHP Chopper showed up to pick up 2 kayakers that were nearly swept out to sea after overturning. Crab Sandwiches in Bodega Bay are Great! Will Definitely be back~"
Dec 02, 2013 - , Roseville, CA

"Like being on a yacht. The water surrounds you. Amazing!
We had the best time. Home is very comfy and clean. The best thing was being surrounded by water. I've rented many beach homes to vaca in. Many had beautiful views, but this home takes it to a whole other level. Only one minor thing wrong. Others have mentioned the dreaded dish towel. They're correct. It smells. Bring your own dish towels to use. Other then that all other linens and towels were just fine. Very clean place. "

"Great Waves
the location and property were fine, beautiful landscape and clean. Only problem: no fireplace. When the fog rolls in, Spirit says one needs a warming fire!"
Sep 17, 2013 - Richard T., Sacramento, Ca

"Outstanding Location
The house is located in the perfect place to sit and enjoy the breathtaking view of the ocean. It would have been nicer had the windows been clean. The kitchen was well-equipped and the sound system was great. I do have several complaints. There was only one hand towel and the bath towels were well-worn, as were the bed sheets and blankets. Also, the house is really meant to accommodate one couple and one or two children. The bunk bed is not all that comfortable for an adult. One other major complaint is that there isn't one decent place to sit. The sofa needs to be replaced and the dining chairs were not comfortable at all. Overall, I must say that the incredible location outweighed the imperfections. With a little TLC, the house could be awesome as well. "

"Wonderful ocean view!
This is such an amazing ocean view rental. It's cozy and cabin-y and comfy! Everything you could possibly need is available. Great for a couple or small family getaway. The property management folks are awesome!! We will go again!"

Dec 31, 2012 - Greg C., clovis, ca

"Beautiful Place
Very comfortable, well equipped vacation home in a spectacular setting. Felt like the ocean was in our living room/dining room/kitchen. Right on the ocean with easy beach access, and in a lovely and quiet residential neighborhood. Not for big gatherings. Perfect for a couple. A fireplace and hot tub would have been great additions, but other than that it was perfect. Falling asleep listening to the ocean every night - so relaxing and peaceful! "

"Outstanding service
Dillon Beach Property Management was great to deal with - we were looking for a last minute rental, and they were very helpful and were able to offer us a fantastic property. I had contacted a few contacts on other websites before whose customer service was absolutely terrible compared to Dillon Beach Property Management. We'll be renting from them in the future for sure!"
