“Perfect 'home' environment away from home!”

We chose the Big Red House as the 'halfway' point between San Diego & San Francisco as we had children in both cities. It was more than perfect and Elaine, the proprietor, who lives in an adjacent home, was attentive to our every need.
The house is fully equipped - we made our Thanksgiving Day dinner there, and then fully used and appreciated the nearby hiking trails, proximity to the ocean (I discovered that I could walk to the boardwalk in just 5 minutes and see seals & an otter plus bird life in part of California's protected coastline!)
The Hearst Castle is just minutes north as is a CA State Park with hiking trails. The small town of Cambria has a nice grocery store and a coffee shop. There are multiple vineyards just east. There is plenty to fill one's days and a warm inviting 'home', with fireplace and a view of the ocean upon return. Plenty of parking, no traffic, and dogs are welcome.
The master bedroom has a spectacular view of the ocean plus its own deck, as well as having an additional deck off of the living room. Because the owner is a movie buff, you can plan on spending a considerable amount just perusing the collection of DVDs.

“Great location, good value, beautifully furnished”

We loved Elaine's beautifully furnished home for the two of us, our two grandchildren and our two dogs. The kids loved the extensive collection of videos, we loved the beautiful view, furnishings and artwork. We also appreciated the ability to leave our dogs in the unit -- in our case the garage -- while we went out to places the dogs couldn't come.
