We have just returned from Red Rock Haven and we miss it already! This place is perfect! We stayed in the Beach Room and couldn't have been happier! Stacey & Rita are excellent hosts and make you feel comfortable upon arrival! Red Rock Haven has a magical location; you feel at peace the instant you arrive. It is nestled under tall palm trees, built into a small hillside right on the ocean and surrounded by beautiful red rocks and cliffs. It is one of the most tranquil and idyllic places we have ever been.
The Beach Room was so nice and the bed was super comfortable. The stones, tiles and wood it was built from go together so naturally, I can’t think of any improvements/suggestions I would make to make it better. The Beach Room is located above the kitchen, at first glance it may appear you have no privacy, but it was constructed so smartly that it is completely private, we never heard any noises from the kitchen or the bar, the sound of the ocean lulled us into sleep each night.
We ended up eating almost all of our meals (for 4 days) right on property at the Escape Beach Bar & Grill, there are plenty of other options in Calibishie but the food was so good here there was no sense in leaving. We tried almost everything on the menu and it was all fantastic and very reasonable! We especially enjoyed the Pork Loin with the Sweet Potato Mash, the Tacos and the Tostados. The drinks were excellent too, I think we tried all of them as well and our favorite was the Sandy Toes. Our breakfasts each morning were very generous portions of freshly made eggs, fresh fruit, fresh fruit juice, bagels, sausage, etc. Gingin (sp?) the cook is a local woman, she does a great job, and Elaine, the bartender and server was also excellent. We truly felt like we were part of the family/team while we were there, everyone made us feel welcome & comfortable.
The ocean is a little rough near Red Rocks, but you can swim right in front of the place. Red Rocks has several chairs and fire pits right on the ocean which is nice. You can also do a ton of exploring right from Red Rocks, we hiked in both directions and with every curve of the beach the view gets better and better, just incredible! Definitely take time to walk up to the Red Rocks, it is really neat. We went snorkeling a few inlets over and saw tons of Sea Fans in the water which was great. We also walked to Hodgens Beach and went snorkeling there before walking back into town and to Red Rocks.
We left our camera at Fort Shirley on our way to Red Rocks, Stacey & Rita were kind enough to drive us all the way back there to retrieve it and stop at some nice beaches and a waterfall, it was a perfect day! Another day they set us up with a local tour guide, Wendy with Untouchable Tours, and even made us snack wraps with Chicken which was really thoughtful.
Red Rocks really is the complete package, stunning location, amazing rooms, great foods, tasty drinks and excellent hosts! I’d give anything to be sitting at the fire pit drinking a sandy toes and talking to Stacey & Rita while listening to Stacey’s great assortment of music with the waves cracking behind us and the stars shining above the palm trees – stay at Red Rocks!
