Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for providing a beautiful place to explore the Central Coast. We saw plenty of deer around town, had some great days at the beach, marveled at the Elephant seals, and managed to fit in a couple of days of wine tasting, We love it here and look forward to returning soon.

Even better than it looks, which is great!

  • 5 of 5

The Big Red House is one of those things you want to keep secret so it's available when you want to go again, because surely you will want to go again. It's decorated as if it is someone's home rather than a rental with lovely pieces of art and furniture and for that reason you will respect it. I walked to the beach easily and to the boardwalk on wonderful Moonstone Bay. And my husband particularly loved sitting on the back patio with the interesting sculpture pieces. Only 3 days and I hated to leave. Elaine was easy to communicate with, friendly, courteous, and a gracious host. Winner, winner, winner--even better than the photos! View of the Pacific from upstairs and downstairs is spectacular and two decks for wine and coffee drinking and viewing, am and pm.

Owner's Response: It's so rewarding to know that my clients are really pleased with the house and enjoying all that Cambria has to offer. What a blessing to have such lovely and appreciative people as guests. Cambrians treasure their visitors and want them to take home memories of a special and relaxing vacation amid breath taking vistas and abundant wildlife. It's my job to see to the small things in their immediate surroundings and this I try to do. Please come again. Elaine

This is a very nice place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Big Red House. The house and grounds are great. Ocean views from all rooms facing west. Very nice sunsets from the terrace and patio. What is really nice is it's just a short 10 or 15 minute walk into town. The owner is a very nice lady and we really enjoyed talking with her. We highly recommend staying here and we will probably stay again.

Fantastic weekend in a beautiful place. The house and location were absolutely perfect, everything was immaculately clean, and Elaine was a gracious hostess. The amenities were exactly as described, but even better. And the views!!! I will definitely be staying here again.

Perfect for a quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

The "Big Red House" is a gem!! It's is big, has everything that you would need. The backyard is very inviting with a great BBQ. The views from the balconies are amazing, not to mention the binoculars, great for whale watching.

The house has nice furnishings and is extremely clean. You can bring your dog and there are dog bowls and bags provided.

Thank you Elaine. We had an amazing stay!

Great location. Great view. Comfortable home away from home

  • 4 of 5

You couldn't ask for a better view of the Pacific Ocean! From the master suite it's what you see when you wake up each morning. Really spectacular! The property is walking distance to Moonstone Beach and miles of boardwalk and trails to explore. Downtown Cambria is a short drive with restaurants, quaint shops and a refreshing lack of franchise eateries! We loved it here and would stay again.
