We were very impressed with the accommodation and location. Had everything we needed to make ourselves at home. Handy to Yosemite Valley and Wanona areas. Access to washing machine and dryer in accommodation block was very convenient.
We loved this condo - we have 5 in our family so having 2 bathrooms was very helpful & the beds were very comfortable. As we read in other reviews, the walls are thin & the wifi is pretty bad. But, we brought earplugs and were so exhausted at night that the noise from other's conversations really wasn't too bad and the wifi only bothered my teens when they wanted to post pictures of their vacation.
After seeing some of the very basic, rustic and expensive accommodation in Yosemite Valley we were very pleased to have rented this apartment for 2 nights. It is very convenient for trips to Glacier Point and it isn’t that far from Yosemite Valley. For Yosemite the price is very reasonable.
This upper level apartment has been nicely refurbished with the exception of the beds. We found the foam mattress on the double bed to be extremely uncomfortable and we had to use the other beds as a result. Also there was just enough blankets for 2 beds but not for 3 beds. The apartment is compact and one has to live out of suitcases due to lack of storage space. This wasn’t a problem for the 2 of us but it would be a bit chaotic if 4 or 5 people were staying. As per the first reviewer the apartment walls are thin. This wasn’t a problem when we stayed but it could be if there were inconsiderate neighbours.
Holly was very helpful and prompt in replying. Despite the few negatives I have pointed out these apartments in West Yosemite are a very good option but if the mattress on the double bed was replaced the apartment would be much better.
Yosemite West is about a 20 minute drive from Yosemite Valley and the majority of walks and scenic locations. We lost all of our travel plans and accommodation details we had printed when our car was broken into in LA, This made getting into the condo very difficult as there is no on site reception. A woman who was responsible for other units in the complex was extremely helpful in ringing around to find how we got into our condo. Make sure you have your access details with you and if you don't understand how you will access your accommodation find out before you leave home.
When we finally got into our condo it had the heating on and chocolates on the bed ready for our arrival. It had every kitchen utensil we needed and dishwasher powder provided a well as soap, shampoo and conditioner. As Australians it took us some time to be able to turn on the shower and taps. The condo was warm and fitted five of us very well. The beds were fine but not as comfortable as home - but everyone has different tastes in beds. In all excellent, value for money wilderness accommodation.
We wanted to be comfortable but in the park as this condo absolutely fit the bill. Easy to find, a wonderful location for easy access to Glacier Point Road and Yosemite Village, and brilliantly equipped. We stocked up with shopping at Oakdale on the way but needn't have bought things like oil and salt and so on - it was all there, right down to balsamic vinegar. There were even chocolates! The WiFi worked very well for us - no streaming, but who cares? Loads of towels, very comfy bed, excellent furniture, and everything worked. We loved our time there.
