“Red Box Sunsets”
Reviewed 24 September 2018 for a stay in September 2018

While staying at the Red Box, every sunset was an event worth pausing to view from start to finish. Both decks provide a beautiful view. The location of the Red Box provides privacy and solitude yet is only a ten-minute drive to Inverness. The home itself is beautiful, from the well-stocked kitchen with great appliances and counter space to the roomy master bedroom and beautifully- tiled bathrooms. The library was well-stocked with a variety of reading materials. Living room couches were very comfy. If you are looking for a rental that has all the conveniences and comforts of home and also provides quiet, solitude and beautiful views, then the Red Box will not disappoint.

“Relaxing spot, with spectacular views!”
Reviewed 13 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We had a wonderful week-long stay! A quiet, secluded area to enjoy some spectacular sunsets. Inverness is just a few minutes away, with some nice shops (including an excellent
coffee shop), and an excellent beach. Really let’s you get away from it all, while still having access to the necessities. Very highly recommended!

“Beautiful house with a great view of the ocean”
Reviewed 23 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

The house is in a very peaceful and private location overlooking the ocean. The open plan of the house is beautiful, with lovely views of the ocean or forest out every window. It is close to Inverness, the Margarees, and many warm water sandy beaches. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare our meals at the house - just like home - and we appreciated having the washer and dryer available for our wet beach towels. We hope to visit again!

“Home away from home, with a better view!”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I am not sure where to start. The pictures do not do the place justice!! The inside was beautiful and spacious. Luxurious bathrooms, a kitchen stocked with the necessary cooking utensils and pots/pans. Beds were comfortable. Lots of space on the main floor, and small additions that made the house that much more comfortable (stereo, fans, nice breeze through the windows, etc). The decks were a good size, with comfortable chairs and a swing. And the views....spectacular sunsets!! Little play areas around the house, to tire the little one out.
Inverness is a cute little town a short 10 minute drive, with all the necessities close at hand (grocery store, wine store, and a coffee shop. Those looking for something a little extra - a fantastic whiskey distillery 20 minutes away! And Cape Breton Highlands national park, with amazing views, a short 45 minutes away.
I honestly can not recommend this enough. The only downside was having to leave.

“Peace and quiet with incredible views”
Reviewed 23 January 2017 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

This home was stunning. On a quiet dirt road and placed on top of a hill with incredible panoramic views of the ocean. Watch the sunset from the top floor deck. Home was very clean and had EVERYTHING we needed. Welcome gift basket was a savior after the 12 hour drive my party made. Quick ride into town for anything you need. Plenty of things close to see and do no matter what type of traveler you may be. Hoping to come back some time in the near future!
