Bahay Kubo is considered as a cultural Filipino heritage, a symbol of togetherness. A typical nipa hut has no partitions for rooms to accommodate the entire family if you look inside. The whole space is the dining, sleeping, and living area in one. When we bought the house, there was a whale tail on the door. Some say the shaka, which is the hand symbol synonymous with surfing and hanging loose, was also used by whale hunters in the Pacific. Fishing also is a communal activity that brings people together, providing shared experiences and nourishment for the people involved. We hope our beach house brings you and your shared experiences, joyful memories, and positive vibes.

Irishman George Dillon and his wife Mathilda arrived at Dillon Beach from the eastern U.S. in 1868. When his friends and family showed interest in the area, he thought to capitalize on it; in 1888, he built an 11 bedroom hotel, restaurant, and general store. This is the Dillon Beach Resort in operation today. Visitors would explore the area on their way up the coast toward the redwood forests, strolling the beach, fishing, or digging clams from the nearby clam bars of Tomales Bay.
In 1903, Dillon sold out to John Keegan to agree that the beach would always be named Dillon Beach. Keegan also built cottages, one of which still stands along the road to the beach. Keegan ran a stagecoach from Dillon Beach to Tomales, where it met the train.
