Very Good


Reviewed 16 Jul 2016

This rental had it all, nice modern quarters and location allows to see Yosemite and Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks. Pool was perfect for relaxing/cooling off after day of hiking, horse back riding, or driving curvy mountains roads! Cooking inside on hot plate and outside on grill both worked out well! Hope to stay longer than 4 nights next time!!

“Delightful location with spectacular views - very well maintained.”

My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at this very well equipped studio apartment. We had some cold weather during our stay and it was great to return from hiking in Yosemite to relax in this cozy, comfortable and peaceful setting. The studio is probably about an hour plus drive away from Yosemite Valley but the drive is scenic and enjoyable. The couple of restaurants in the near by small town of North Fork were closed during our visit but the small town has a well stocked supermarket and the kitchen very well equipped so we could prepare our own meals.

“Perfect with plenty of space!”

My boyfriend and I stayed here last summer for 3 nights (one night downstairs in the house and the other two nights in the studio upstairs). We had never stayed at someone's house before but this was a great experience and we would definitely go back. (Plus, we really loved visiting Yosemite!) Bob is a wonderful host - knows just what his guests need. He showed us around, we chatted for a little and then he gave us our space. His house is super clean, beautiful, and nicely decorated and the views outside are spectacular! The studio upstairs has more privacy (an exceptionally clean and well maintained large studio with a kitchenette and fireplace). Downstairs you have access to more - a kitchen and large porch (perfect for a dinner night in and a glass of wine stargazing). Outside there is a patio with seating and a small pool (which was perfect after a day of hiking in Yosemite). There is also a firepit and a bundle of wood that Bob sets up for his guests every night. In town there is a small grocery store and an awesome taco joint not far from his house. We really enjoyed our stay! Thanks Bob!!

“Best vacation rental we have stayed in so far.”

We can most certainly feel the efforts and thoughts that Bob places into when building this lovely home and studio. The fine touches at every nook and corner makes us feel so much at home. Looking forward to returning to the studio to chill every evening after taking in the awesome sights at Yosemite. Bob has been so helpful and prompt in responding to all our queries. Thank you Bob, for making our stay in Yosemite a very memorable one. We are so thankful we found this lovely gem!

“Perfect stay close to Yosemite”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2014

We stayed two nights at Bob's wonderful place and wish that it could have been longer! It is close to Yosemite national park and much nicer than any place within the park. The apartment itself is well equipped and kept very fresh. There is a nice barbecue area where you can plug in your own music and enjoy the view and the lovely hummingbirds. Also, wifi and netflix are available. Best of all - after a good day's walk in Yosemite you can relax in the pool and enjoy the surroundings. Bob is the perfect host and we would love to come back! I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Yosemite area.

“Fantastic house, fantastic view, fantastic experience!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2014

I took my girlfriend here for her first trip to Yosemite National Park. It was my first time using Flipkey and I was blown away by the experience. The house is in wonderful shape and the location is fantastic. Robert was a wonderful host and even provided a bottle of wine for our room. We have actually held onto the bottle since then (8 months so far) just to keep it as a reminder of our romantic and joyous trip. I could not have asked for a better experience at such a reasonable price. I absolutely intend on making another trip out there and staying at this location in the future.

“Just do it”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2014

If I had anything negative to say it would be It takes 45 minutes to get to the park entrance at Mariposa Grove. Don't even think about that as a reason not to stay here, the drive is insignificant compared to the benefits. The studio has everything you require to be very comfortable. Spend the day in Yosemite come back and BBQ with a glass of wine and the fire pit and reflect on the days excitement. Hummingbirds, woodpeckers, deer all visit he garden whilst you are there. Bob is a great host making sure you are alright and have all you need but never intrusive.

“Romantic vacations”

My boyfriend and I spent 3 days in that beautiful house.It was really lovely and romantic. The house is located in a really amazing and peaceful place. I will never forget the days we stayed there. The park is much more breathtaking than we expected. Hope to come back again. Thank you Robert for the wine!! A very nice touch!

““Amazing New Year retreat at Yosemite””

Reviewed 12 Jan 2014

Staying at Bob's place was the best decision hands down. We enjoyed every moment of our stay, from having a nice, welcoming chat with Bob to drinking the wine that Bob had for us under the beautiful starry night sky. Using the provided speaker, we played our favourite classical music from iPhone while cooking our steaks in the little kitchen, which was surprisingly well-stocked and equipped. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a group of deer. It was very cool to have a little nice walk on the grass and taking in the breathtaking views. After our tiring journey, there was nothing better to do than lounging on the couch watching Netflix. We also really appreciated the lovely decorations on the fireplace and the detailing lights. This gave a really nice touch to the relaxing and peaceful atmosphere. The service was excellent--second to none. When we were down in Bob's living room, having a chat, I lost one of my earrings. Before we left, I also left my Christmas sweater on the bed. I contacted Bob the first morning of our return and he promised to mail it back to me. Thanks so much, Bob! The place is not very far from one of the entrances to the national park. The ride there was very nice and easy. Bob had a guide sheet of Yosemite's must-visit spots that we followed. We certainly had an awesome time cruising around and then stopping at Tunnel view and other parking spots for spectacular views as well as hiking/walking trails. We hope to be back again and we would definitely recommend this place for a wonderful experience of mountain retreat!

“A very warm welcome even though Yosemite was closed.”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

A bit depressed that Yosemite was closed, but a lovely bottle of wine awaited us in our studio apartment to ease the pain when we arrived late our first evening. Robert helped us to plan alternate sites to visit that were very close by. The Sequoia National Forest was great and would have been missed if Yosemite had been open. Our apartment was perfect with fireplace, comfortable bed, efficient little kitchen, and wonderful mountain views.
