The 5 of us had a fabulous time at this property for the Fourth of July. The home is nicely decorated with a tasteful beach-y theme, very comfortable furniture, and has a well-equipped kitchen, including lots of spices and condiments. Diane, the property manager, is extremely responsive. The property is exactly as described and shown in photos. Sitting on the large sunny deck, cocktail in hand, listening to crashing waves and watching sea life go by is absolutely sublime. The master bedroom is bigger than some apartments I lived in ( in my younger days). It’s quite beautiful and the bed is extremely comfortable. Be forewarned, if you’re lucky enough to be in the master bedroom, you may have some “survivor guilt” about your travel-mates sleeping in bedrooms 2 and 3. I recommend taking them out for lunch or dinner or something to even things up. I would definitely book this property again!
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.
