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!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our two large dogs, were fortunate to stay a full month at the Big Red House. We are an active family so the location was perfect for us. We hiked at the Fiscallini Ranch every day where dogs are allowed off leash. It is a spectacular area with hills that descend right down to the ocean and it is only a 5 minute drive from the house. We loved a comfortable place to cook and hangout. The sunsets from the upper rooms were a highlight at the end of our days. It was fun to watch movies from the largest DVD collection I have ever seen. The town of Cambria is charming and a short walk from the house. For the entire month, we didn't meet one crabby person! And Elaine is a most gracious and unintrusive owner. She does such a good job with her rental. We are VRBO owners ourselves in Montana and are quite fussy about cleanliness and organization. Elaine gets extra credit as far as we are concerned. You can't go wrong renting with her.

Owner's Response: These clients were the perfect guests and so very respectful of the house and its contents. I try to make The Big Red House the ideal vacation home and it is rewarding when these efforts are appreciated and acknowledged. It is my good fortune to have lived in this beautiful town for 32 years and I am grateful when visitors have this kind of reaction to the environs and to the residents of Cambria. I can only hope that these guests will make a return visit sometime in the future. They will be welcomed with hugs!

This lovely home provided the ideal spot for my husband, 2 dogs and myself to explore the adorable town of Cambria, uncrowded beaches (at least in November - when the weather was still pretty perfect) and nearby (10 minute drive) Hearst Castle. While the home allows pets, it was immaculate. The owners were helpful, welcoming and provided every appointment needed - including new, fluffy towels and a huge DVD collection. It was a 2 minute drive to the town and beaches. This was a terrific find and far more appealing than the generic, charmless hotels nearby. Thank you, Elaine & Craig! We look forward to staying there again when we next visit the area.

Owner's Response: It is so rewarding when our guests appreciate the amenities we seek to provide and consider The Big Red House their home away from home. We seem to attract the crème de la crème of clients and consequently over the years have amassed many treasured friendships. We are very grateful for their continued patronage. It makes running this business a real pleasure.
Sincerely,
Elaine & Craig

EVERYTHING YOU COULD WISH FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We totally loved our 10-day stay at The Big Red House. It was so clean and fresh, all the amenities you can imagine. Elaine was so nice, and easy to work with by phone, and there. Big fluffy towels, amazing DVD collection, restaurant information, directions to attractions - it is all there for your enjoyment! Cambria is a very friendly town - lots of bars and places to eat - we loved The West End Bar, Moonstone Grill, Indigo Moon. Here is a hint - there is an Albertsons and Dollar Tree in Morro Bay - much cheaper than the Cookie Crock, if you are going to stay for a while. Also, Morro Bay is fun, with fishing boats and great food. We hope to go back to this rental someday.

Christmas in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My fiance, our 10-year Golden Retriever and I spent 11 wonderful days in the Big Red House and it was more incredible than we could have imagined. It is an easy walk to town and Moonstone Beach where we went just about every day. One day it rained the entire day and we spent the time curled up reading or watching several movies from the huge selection of DVD's. My fiance is the IT director at a college down here in Southern California and he was super impressed with the internet ~ he said it was even faster than what he has at work. On Christmas Eve we sat on the balcony watching the beautiful sunset when we both saw a group of whales going South ~ it was so cool! We went several times to the see the baby elephant seals ~ so cute they are! Elaine is a perfect host and has thought of everything to make your stay feel as if you are at home. She even called the day it rained to apologize for the weather ~ we knew there was that possibility being that time of year and we enjoyed it anyway. She was helpful with tips on where to eat and places to go. We left feeling as if we have made a new friend. We loved our stay so much, we already put a deposit for the same 11 days next year ~ spending Christmas and New Year's at the Big Red House is something we will spend 2013 looking forward to.

Our Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first stay at the Big Red House and it was more then we expected. The owner has thought of everything, you just need to pack your clothes and go. The views are wonderful and the sounds of the surf so relaxing. I am so thankful the house is dog friendly, we were able to have our whole family there. In the early mornings while enjoying your coffee looking at the ocean on one of the two balconies, you will be able to see the deer run by and hear all the birds singing, I just loved it. The whole house was very clean and comfortable. The owner, Elaine was so very nice and helpful and we loved all of her art throughout the house. We will defiantly be back again. This house is located in a perfect location on a very quiet street. The bedrooms are large and beds very comfortable. Both bedrooms have a view of the ocean. I am sure anyone staying here would enjoy their stay as much as our family did.
