The House is located on 5 acres of Oak Tree and Manzanita studded land with only natures creations to surround you. Ten minutes south of Mariposa on Hwy. 49 South. Whether you are staying with us a weekend or a week, we have set it up for your comfort and enjoyment. Great location for day trips in all directions or maybe lodging for visiting family members for the holidays. Holiday meals can be arranged if you like. The kitchen is fully equipped to prepare meals if you wish. If you prefer there are a variety of really good restaurants in Mariposa, only 10 minutes from the house. This is a 1700sq.ft. house.
We have a little neighborhood cafe, gas station and mini mart less than a half mile away. We also have a county park in the neighborhood with picnic tables and lots of room to run and play.
Starting from this location it takes about an hour into Yosemite Valley, less than a half hour to get to the scenic Merced River or beautiful Bass Lake. If you have a case of gambling fever, we are only 45 minutes from Chukchansi Casino which has several dining choices and adult fun. The options are many for the adventurous.
There is a small airport in Mariposa for private planes and also has a car rental office on site. Our main office is located in the town of Mariposa and we can help you with ideas and directions to make this a vacation to remember.
I have my primary residence in Carmel Valley and was hoping to be able to spend more time in these beautiful foothills, but life as it is, keeps me busy and not able to enjoy it as often as I would like. So..... I am sharing it with you.
Eve Menzing, rental manager purchased this house in 2006
Waking to the sound of birds and the smell of fresh air is good for the soul! On our secluded property you can relax in the gazebo and watch the day go by or beside the wood stove snuggled up with a good book, you can't help but re-charge from city life. There is wild life all around, all you have to do is look! The stars are magnificent away from the city lights. Free entertainment supplied by mother nature!
We have really enjoyed our trip, thank you very much for the rental and all the wonderful memories it helped create.
We stayed in the house for a little reunion with friends, to visit yosemite. Although the drive to the entrance is little less than an hour (+ another hour from the gates to the actual park) the drive is beautiful!, there's Bass Lake nearby, so we made a stop on our way to Yosemite, so, the drive is really not an issue. There's a gas station just 3 min. away from the house, which is very convenient (also, the town is really close with "big" stores like vons, etc).
The grill is a bit small considering the amount of people that fits in the house, and one of the bathrooms was out of service during our stay. (would have been nice to have the 3 bathrooms available). But still, a great place to stay and share with friends and family!
The gazebo makes a great stop to just rest and enjoy the view. :)
My family visited Mariposa, Yosemite area mid July 2014. We had the privilege of staying in this beautiful home. We had a wonderful time! This house was perfect for our family reunion. It was also convenient to both entrances to Yosemite park as well as two very lovely towns. Everything went great through VRBO and Eve was wonderful to deal with, there were no issues with our rental and communication was the best. Never used VRBO, but will again after this great experience. Thanks
The three bedrooms and two full bathrooms fit my families needs, and the full kitchen, washer & dryer, dining room, and living room were nice. The house was in a very good location to drive to Yosemite, which was only an hour away. The house is also 8 miles away from Mariposa, which offers a really nice grocery store and a few nice restaurants. I would recommend the Pioneer Market in Mariposa for all your grocery needs, which offered a fair price and selection. Also the China Station Restaurant in Mariposa is a good place to eat.
For the owner's information...the house is nice, but it could use some extra TLC; the cleaning lady needs to spend some more time cleaning appliances and fridge. A better stocked kitchen would be nice; pots, pans, and utensils. The grill was not gas, which was a real let down for me (handle is missing and it was unusable). This is not a deal breaker, since I would stay in this house again!
We enjoyed our stay in Mariposa. The town is small and quaint and the house was just what we needed. We were able to cook our own meals, and there was even a grill available. Our kids got their own room and the master bedroom was quite spacious. The decor was nice as well.
We really enjoyed our stay in the Mariposa house. The house is situated on a quiet road with a beautiful view. The dining room table is very small, only seating 4, so if you plan to have dinner with more than 4 people, you will not all be able to sit at the table together. There is a kitchen bar with 1 chair, so basically there are 5 spots for eating. If you plan to do a lot of cooking at the house, the kitchen is stocked pretty well with the basic supplies. We missed not having a cheese grater. The bedrooms are all clean and really nice as well as the bathrooms.
**VRBO review team: note this was a property change from the manager from the first one you have on record #414927.** Our in-laws arrived ahead of us to find a house with no hot water and dirty kitchenware. My father-in-law attempted to use a lamp to investigate the water heater situation only to get electrocuted and has suffered burn on his hand. Thankfully, the property manager was proactive and moved us to a new house the following day (afternoon) so disastrous stay at this house averted.
The house is located on a quiet, residential cul de sac. Close to Hwy. 49 South but far enough so you wont be disturbed by Hwy. traffic. The house boasts a beautiful sunset every clear evening. Half way between Mariposa and Oakhurst.
