About Lisa Guardino
My husband and I grew up in Merced, California but always enjoyed traveling and trips to Yosemite and the surrounding foothills. The beauty of the area, the friendliness of the people, the relaxed lifestyle and the endless possibilities for outside entertainment (hiking, fishing, birding etc.) had us making the journey more and more frequently until we decided to move up here. We love dining and shopping the quaint downtown area of Mariposa. We have enjoyed sharing our home with our friends and family by hosting BBQ's, holiday's, pool parties. There is something for everyone to enjoy and plenty of room for visitors.
We decided to turn our home into a vacation rental because our children have grown and moved on and we would like to visit them more and enjoy other great travel spots, as well. We've had so many great times here, this gives us another way to host others and share what we love!
Lisa Guardino purchased this chateau / country house in 2002
Why Lisa Guardino chose Mariposa
Yosemite is a world class vacation destination. Truly a 4 season resort area with ice skating, cross country and downhill skiing in the winter, springtime the waterfalls and wildflowers put on an incredible show, summer is great for swimming in the rivers and lakes, bass and trout fishing while the fall foliage is a treat for hikers.
What makes this chateau / country house unique
This property is great for larger groups and perfect for families and entertaining. We love to wander about moving from pool to jacuzzi to pool table and hanging out on the deck (day for awesome views and night for watching the moon rise. We really feel like we're on a holiday in our own home.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We have had an incredible visit at Yosemite and coming "home" to your house was such a wonderful experience every day! Your lovely home had all of the comforts necessary. We were all impressed at how clean the house was upon arrival! I think I can speak for my brothers when I say that if any of us are again in the area, your home would be the first choice for lodging.
Mary, your attention to detail and attentiveness to your guests needs was so appreciated by us all. The whole experience from start to finish was a joy. We have made some incredible memories during our stay and a good many of them are from your home on the hill outside of Mariposa. In fact, we never made it into Mariposa except to shop for provisions from Pioneer! We preferred the comfort & ambience of your home to dining out.
