“This is the way to do Yosemite and the place to stay!”
Reviewed 3 March 2013 for a stay in February 2013

Do the math: what would it cost you to rent 3 little hotel rooms for 3 couples for a night? Now compare that with what it costs to rent this entire house (3 bedrooms, each with private bath and a little kitchenette; a double kitchen; a large dining/entertainment area complete with a pool table and satellite TV; an indoor 8 person hot-tub; plus a washer and dryer) for a night.

Now figure out how much time you'll spend each day driving back and forth if you stay outside the park. If you haven't done that before, it's a considerable amount of time, especially in the summer when the park is crowded and traffic backs up. Compare that with staying in Yosemite West, which is just a few minutes away from one of the main roads that cuts through the park.

Add to it that from start to finish you deal personally with Holly, the owner, who genuinely wants you and your group to have a comfortable, trouble-free time and encourages you to contact her with any questions or problems. Plus you're not in a crowded commercial area with traffic zipping by. You're pretty much in a residential community in the kind of setting you go to Yosemite to see in the first place.

The only things I marked down a point below are the kitchen because the indoor grill on the gas stove wouldn't light the night we wanted to grill some nice pork chops we'd bought, and the indoor hot tub, which seemed not to have been used or serviced recently. In fairness I should say we could have been mistaken about that, and if I'd called her, which I didn't, I'm confident Holly would have addressed it.

I'll sum it up this way. The previous time we went to Yosemite we stayed at the Ahwahnee. If we were turning around and going back next week with more than two of us, we'd head straight to the Enchanted Forest (Upper).

Liked best: The spaciousness of the unit (especially the kitchen and dining area) and the helpfulness of the owner.
Liked least: Not being sure the hot tub had been serviced recently. But again, that's partly our fault. We could have called the owner and asked, and she has caretakers nearby.

“Outstanding Luxury Rental In Yosemite”
Reviewed 14 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is truth in advertising, everything promised by the owner exceeded our expectations. Full three bedrooms with three bathrooms. Terrific supportive communication by the owner. Very well decorated, My family had a great time. Very close to some of the very best sites in Yosemite. The gourmet kitchen has great facilities which is fully furnished, includes a double refrigerator, double dishwashers. The hot tub and pool table make this rental a wonderful surprise.
