A perfect home base for a birthday trip to Yosemite!
Submitted: March 24, 2013
Stayed: March 2013
My husband and I stayed at the Serenity Suite for three nights, and couldn't have been happier with our rental choice! This was my first trip to Yosemite, and the convenience of being in the park was ideal for maximizing our hiking/sightseeing time during our short stay. This property is well represented in the descriptions and photos. The exception, we thought, was that the space is actually LARGER in person that it seems in the photos/video. The ceilings are high and we were pleasantly surprised by the open floor space in the kitchen area as well. The outdoor grill, lovely fireplace, high-end bedding/linens, and very new, well-equipped were the big highlights for us in this comfortable, modern, and immaculate space. Holly was an invaluable resource for tips and info on everything in the park, and was extremely friendly, helpful, and timely in all our communications.
If pressed to find any small thing to note in the interest of a balanced review, I would mention that if you are extremely sensitive to quiet/privacy, the Serenity Suite is on the lower level of the larger, two-rental unit. The upper level unit is two bedrooms and set up for families. The hardwood floor stairs and tiled floor areas + children in the upper unit made for the occasional periods of loud overhead noise in our unit in the evening. This wasn't a big deal to us (we are city-dwellers/used to apartments), and certainly didn't take away from our experience, but worth noting for those looking for maximum quiet/seclusion.
Thanks Holly and Jeff for a wonderful rental experience - we will DEFINITELY be back!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to post your review. I am glad you enjoyed the Suite and Yosemite! Thank you also for your honest description of the possibility of hearing noise from the guests above. I agree completely that each person's own level of sensitivity will help determine whether the guests upstairs detract from their stay and this is important for all potential guests to consider. We very much look forward to having you back as our guests again. Holly and Jeff
