Inverness is within comfortable reach for grocery shopping or eating out in one of its restaurants with fresh sea food but far enough to give you the impression of being away from civilization.

We enjoyed our stay in the Red Box very much. It was in a great position overlooking the sea with lots of space for our children to play. Our sons loved the zip wire! The house was very well equipped and nicely furnished. The directions to find the house were easy to follow. We would love to come back one day.
We spent five days in the "red box" just outside of Inverness. We had a fantastic time in this beautiful part of Nova Scotia. The house was perfect - very clean and comfortable. There are two decks and the view of the ocean is amazing. We felt very welcome - Rolf was in contact with us by email and the housekeeper left treats in the fridge for our arrival.
The house was really perfect, it was a bit like paradise for our family (5 people) vacation! We were welcomed by a splendid view on the ocean and a bottle of wine as well as enough food to allow us to postpone our first trip to the grocery to the next day.
We enjoyed the ocean view, bird's song, beach proximity as well as Cape Breton Highlands Park which was a 45 min drive away.
I rented several house through Air BnB and this is one of the few I enjoyed the most.
I definitely recommend that house to anybody who is looking for a gorgeous sea view (even when using the shower in master's bedroom) and wants to enjoy nature around.
Lovely house is in a remote but lovely area, close to Inverness (and great golf for those who golf), the Cabot Trail, and lovely beaches. There was a small mix-up with our arrival, but Rolf quickly resolved it and we had a lovely stay.
What an incredible place! We absolutely loved staying here and hope very much to come back some day. All you can see from the house is trees, sea and sky and all you can hear is the waves crashing and the birds singing. It feels wonderfully remote, but you're only a 15-20 min drive from the charming town of Inverness (great beach and fab coffee shop) and about half an hour from the spectacular Cabot Trail. There is a really beautiful beach about 2-3km away too. And the sunsets from the balcony were just incredible. The house is gorgeous - v European in feel with lots oflight from all the windows and the great open plan interior. We had everything we needed and Rolf was very helpful and kind from Switzerland before and during our stay. Highly recommended.
Absolutely Lovely Summer Rental Experience coupled with a breathtakingly gorgeous location. Rolf's self titled "Red Box" :-) home actually belongs in Dwell Magazine... It's thoughtfully designed and exquisitely furnished. If your seek fantastic ocean views, a short walk to incredible beach's, coupled with unparalleled natural beauty including whales, seals, eagles and SUNSETS, this is your place to enjoy. "Downtown Inverness" is a brief 10 minute car ride away. It offers a perfect Seattle quality coffee shop and bakery, exquisite town beach, nice supermarket, enjoyable bike paths and a beautiful golf course very similar to ones enjoyed in the Hebrides.
We had a phenomenal week at this beautiful seacoast home.
Thank You Rolf for a perfect summer visit.
Unforgettable experience!!! The house is gorgeous... Open concept with natural light from dusk till dawn. Clean, spacious and windows all around, you feel like Cape Breton is INSIDE the house. The views are spectacular! Ocean Sunsets I will never forget, while sitting at the deck, wow!
Kid and adult friendly. The owner was always available to answer any questions regarding the house. Would (and will) return!
About the Host, Rolf
We are a couple from Switzerland and we build this house 5 years ago. Every Summer and Winter we was here and find the place and the spot extraordinaire. Our son is going now to scool that means our time is limited and this is the reason we give space to other persons to get on a adventure here in Cape Breton. The house is in a modern european concept stile. Lightfull and spacy with room to breathe. Fully equipped. Stay at a wonderfull place, calm and with one of the best sunset you can imagine. Come to end a work away from the city stress. Come with your children it is a great place to be, play and dream, beaches all over. The house is about 15 km from the Cabot Links, 45 min from Chéticamp and 50 Min from Baddeck with the Colf Courses, Bell Bay and Baddeck Forks away. We are happy to answer any questions give us a call.
