“Cosy Mountain retreat”
Reviewed 17 July 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Hans' was an amazing base for our trip to Yosemite and a cosy retreat from the snow, hail, rain and sun the mountains threw at us! Hans' feels like your own mountain home, previous guests have left treats, the shelves are full of interesting books and the rooms are very comfortable. It's not up to date modern, but rather more "worn in" for me, that added to the charm. We ranged from 5-9 people staying here at once (with 9 we had to get out the airbed but it's one of the electric pump ones and very comfortable). The cooking equipment was plentiful and adequate for the number and there were loads of spare towels. West Yosemite is not super central - it's close to the Glacier point turn off, but you have to go to the valley for provisions and either Wawona or Crane Flat for gas. Hans was friendly and helpful when booking by email. You couldn't get to Hans' without a car. I would definitely recommend Hans' and would stay here again.

“Everything is fully functional, reliable and easy to use.”

It was a very pleasant stay of 3 nights. We had a group of 6, which fit into the 3 bedrooms very well. The lower story has one bedroom with a queen bed and a twin bunk-bed(sleeps 2). Upper story has 2 bedrooms. each has a queen beds. If the 2 leather couches in the family room are counted, it certainly can host 10 people. But I figure 8 people is the best fit.

The full kitchen is nice. It basically has everything -- a full size cooktop-microwave with vent hood, 4-burner range with oven, super large single door fridge, counter top toaster, can opener, ample supply of cups, plates, silvers, wine and beer bottle openers, trash bags, paper towel, ..... you name it.

There lower level is covered by hardwood floor. It is suggested to have shoes taken off. As a result the house is very clean. There is a telephone provided. (cell phone signal is zero bar). Wireless signal within the house is strong. But the internet connecting to the outside world is slow.

TV is an antique but functional with DVD player and VCR. There are quite a lot movie tapes and DVDs. The book shelf is fun to explore as Hans has a wonderful collection of rock climbing, which are rare to find in a book store.

Trash is a problem: We generated 4 bags of trashes. Because of bear awareness, there is no trash dump in the neighborhood. We have to take the 4 bags with us and dump them in trash dumps in the valley. For example, there are 6 of them in a spot called "tunnel view".

Bath: all bathroom are clean and tidy. There are ample supply of towels in the cabinet. lower level bathroom is newly furnished .

Beds: the mattress in the upper lever bedroom facing the front is not so great. A firmer and less shaky mattress will do a better justice to the house. There are quite a few pillows provided in the shelf with difference heights.

Neighborhood: we saw 3 bears walking across the street on the first morning around 7AM. Second day we were lucky enough to see a coyote. very quite neighborhood with lots of vacation houses along a winding road.

We definitely had a wonderful time. and would like to recommend this house to our friends.

Simplicity pleasant peaceful home to stay in. Located in deep into the park the view was beautiful. Hans was very accommodating with our arrangement as all of my friends and I schedules change. Highly recommend staying here.

“Amazing location, declining amenities”

This was our second year staying in this house. Hans has always been great to work with, responsive and helpful. We would still be sitting in the dark in the living room if he hadn't tipped us off to the obscure location of the light switch. Yosemite West is wonderful, and we appreciate the laid back atmosphere of the house. However, I felt like the house wasn't in very good condition - more broken items than last year. The screen door to the beautiful deck was missing, letting in lots of bugs or making the living room stuffy, and several other windows didn't move very well. Some kitchen cabinet doors were very grimy and if you care about things like clean sponges, non-ancient pillows, or lids for your pans, you're out of luck. We did our part to improve things for future guests, sharpening knives and buying a new sponge and tinfoil down in Yosemite Valley but lots of things you can't get nearby, and shouldn't be the responsibility of guests. I would NOT recommend this house for small children, given issues like an exposed outlet (no coverplate) in LR for the past 2 years, and easy splinters from the upstairs walls. We did have a young infant with us last year with no problems, but now that he's mobile it would not have been safe. The upstairs bathroom is falling apart, though the downstairs one is great. This house is all about location, and it has its own charm. However, we expected these basic items to be taken care of.
