One of my best friends bought a property nearby about 15 years ago and introduced me to the Yosemite area. On my very first visit, I was absolutely in awe of the beauty of this region and knew that I wanted to have a vacation home for my family to enjoy as well. Since then we have had both family and friends come up to our home to enjoy and make memories of their own. The house is just 7 miles from the mining town of Mariposa and just 40 miles to Yosemite Valley.

Our property is incredible for so many reasons. We have 13 acres with many trails to explore, so going on nature walks are a must. Our 3 decks are wonderful for overlooking the year round pond and giant granite boulders. There is always lots of wildlife to discover and take pictures of, including foxes, deer, turtles, ducks, fish, squirrels, hawks and much more. It has spectacular views of the property from the master bedroom. This is a great place for entertaining, whether its bbq'ing or enjoying pool & hot tub on a summer day.

AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
So beautiful. The property is so nice. The pond is fun to float around in or use the paddle boat that is so cool. Lots of space for everyone to have some alone/quiet time. I have rented lots of homes on VRBO/Homeaway and this house by far is the best. In all 3 showers was a brand new wrapped bar of body soap and each bathroom was a brand new liquid handsoap dispenser. Cabinets were stocked with toilet paper and there was even a first aid cabinet for any injuries. Beach towels, new wrapped kitchen sponge, different sized life vests for the paddle boat, binoculars, telescopes, firewood and the list goes on. This place is really more like a hotel with all the amenities. Everything is labeled with instructions. You can tell Jeff really puts a lot of effort in making this place a memorable experience for all of the renters. We will for sure be coming back next year. PERFECT GETAWAY!! Just FYI for renters the house has no spices except for salt and pepper and no Tupperware for your leftovers so you might want to bring your own.

THE TITLE IS VERY ACCURATE AND THE PICTURES ARE GREAT BUT YOU REALLY HAVE TO SEE IT TO BELIEVE IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
We don't even know where to begin - this rental spot is just absolutely AMAZING!!! We had a family vacation with our kids & grandkids to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We were hoping to find a place with both hiking and swimming possibilities since we figured that would cover the interests of most everyone in our family. We hit the JACKPOT when we discovered this rental home! We arrived about 15 minutes before the rest of our gang on Sunday afternoon and were just blown away! We went out on the deck and just stood dumb founded by the view. And as we stood there together, a deer came out of the woods and just stood there for a time looking at us. We were both just awestruck! Everyone LOVED the home and we had such an amazing week! We heard the comment many times - this is just a kid's paradise! No one was ever bored!! The ages of our grandchildren ranged from 13 years of age to 1 year olds and it was the perfect setting for ALL of them to stay occupied and still have quiet, comfortable, areas for naps. The beds all slept great! Personally, we can't think of a single thing we would change - we HIGHLY recommend this VRBO for any family or couples that want a great, memory making vacation. We've told many of our friends about it already. There were helpful notes from the owner everywhere which was very nice - you can tell he really cares about the people who visit this home. Very nice amenity! The game room was fantastic and the shade under the cabana was WONDERFUL too - we spent many hours visiting under it and in the hot tub while the kids swam in the pool. The pirate ship, pond and paddleboat were HUGE hits too – many hours were spent in that area also. The large outdoor picnic table was perfect for meals - we had sassy seats for the babies and that worked perfect as the picnic table is so big and sturdy. Yosemite was close so a couple days were spent traveling to see the sights there but we almost hated leaving the rental to go other places. We made a few trips to Mariposa too – fun little town to visit. We could go on and on but have used up all our space. But we HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who wants a WONDERFUL family vacation spot, a romantic get-a-way, or other type of rest from the chaos of daily life. We do agree with the person who wrote earlier this place should come with a warning - that it may cause depression - when you have to leave. We do hope the time comes when we can go back. THANKS SO VERY MUCH!

AWESOME PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We spent five amazing nights at this property, we highly recommend this house for vacation. It is very private at the same time it is close to Mariposa where you can go for grocery and restaurants and it is about 1 hour to Yosemite Valley or Yosemite south entrance. The master room is very nice, huge with private bathroom separate from the main living area and other bedrooms. We love the family room and the big outside dinner table where we all enjoyed our meals together. The deck, hot tub and pool were very nice along with everything on the property. The property was a great place to explore with the rocks, hiking trails, pond, treehouse, paddle boat, game room and all the outbuildings. Every afternoon the deer would come to graze down by the pond. The house has everything you need to make amazing memories with your family. Jeff was great to work with and he made everything simple and easy.

FUN FAMILY ADVENTURE

  • 5 of 5
We were a party of 13 with 10 staying at the property, including 3 children (10, 8, 5) for a multi-generational birthday celebration. We were looking for a location that would accommodate the group for meals and socializing as well as providing some on-site recreation. This was perfect. The house is simple and rustic but clean, well maintained, and comfortable. Beds were very good. 6 adults shared a bath but it seemed to work out fine as we were very relaxed about schedules. The family of 5 stayed in the large downstairs suite and thought it worked out great. Property was terrific with walking trails, tree house, pirate ship (including treasure chest with pirate hats, gold painted rocks, etc), game room (with ping-pong, basketball game and an old arcade game that the kids loved), hot tub etc. Since it was winter we didn't use the pool or pond but just enjoyed the sights. The kids loved climbing on the huge boulders and finding the cave underneath them. We were close to mariposa but only went in to get groceries and did all the cooking at the house. It is about 1hr from the Mariposa Sequoia grove and about 1.25hrs from Yosemite Valley. The views are lovely so time went quickly and we did not mind the drives. All in all it was a perfect spot for our needs. Would have been pretty with snow but not as easy to get around so we enjoyed the more balmy 50 degree days.

THIS PROPERTY SHOULD COME WITH A WARNING LABEL!

  • 5 of 5
Warning - This property has been known to cause depression! Depression, that is, when you return home and find yourself reminiscing about the most fabulous time you just had and wish you were still there! To say this property is amazing only scratches the surface! We were two families looking to expose our children to the wonder of Yosemite. While we did do that, we found it incredibly difficult to remove ourselves from this place! There was so much to do on site, no one wanted to leave. In fact, we intend to make this an annual trip and include more time at the property. The home was clean, spacious and comfortable. The children had a fantastic time exploring the grounds, paddling on the pond, and playing in the rec room. We adults enjoyed all that as well, but also took over the pool and hot tub - a perfect place to soak old bones after a day of hiking in Yosemite. The owners were a joy work with and we would not hesitate to recommend this place to our friends and family. Just go - you won't regret it!

HOPE TO RETURN SOON!

  • 5 of 5
This was the 4th time I have rented a vacation home in Mariposa. This amazing property blew the other rentals out of the water! We were a party of 4 adults who instantly turned into 4 kids when we stepped out onto the deck. I think our mouths literally dropped open. It was magical. We did everything the property had to offer. Hiked the trails, tooled around the pond in the paddle boat, soaked in the hot tub, explored the out buildings, played games & swung on the swing at the tree house. The cabin itself is charming & comfortable. We loved all the thoughtful special touches. In the evenings we watched vintage horror movies (it was October after all) in front of the fire, snuggled up on the comfy sofas. Bloody Marys on the main deck in the afternoon while watching deer graze by the pond & a night hike with the help of the lanterns were also pretty great. The owners are very nice to deal with & I have never had a deposit returned to me so quickly. I highly recommend this property. The pictures just cannot do justice to how special this place really is. You will not be disappointed!
