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.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

My family, which includes 3 teenagers and a 120 pound black lab, stayed at The Big Red House for 5 nights in August and we couldn't have been happier with our choice. The house is immaculately maintained and the location is incredible! Apparently most families who stay here bring dogs but you can't tell when you're here. There's not a dog hair to be found in the place! The kitchen is well stocked, the video library is hard to beat, the flat screen TVs are amazing, and so is the view. The master bedroom faces the ocean and when the windows are open and the sea breeze is coming through it is Heaven on earth! The house is located in a very upscale neighborhood and we took walks in the neighborhood every day. If I had to find a complaint (and it's hard to come up with one) I guess it would be that the backyard isn't fenced. Our dog isn't the type that you can just let out and he'll stick around, so we had to take him out on a leash each time he needed to go potty. But who cares. We were on vacation and it was no big deal. We'll definitely be back!

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.

The best in Cambria....

  • 5 of 5

We come up to Cambria about 4 times a year with our dog, this is the first time we have stayed at The Big Red House, and it could not have been more perfect. The home is very large, perfectly equipped with everything you need or could want, close to Moonstone where you can just walk to the water, etc. Elaine was great to work with, from setting up the reservation to arriving, just fantastic. Look forward to staying here again.
