It will quickly become your favorite get-away located in the foothills below Sequoia and Kings National Park. It is ideally situated to accommodate day excursions for site seeing adventures, but the grounds and accommodations at the DaVidgil House are a destination in themselves. One can sun bathe on the edge of the river, dine under the stars, and walk among the sycamores; listen and see hawks and quail, and every now and then catch sight of the heron going up or down river. There is an an abundance of wildlife.

The Studio vacation rental is an independent dwelling taking up the complete bottom floor. The Upstairs Suite is a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with exquisite views, and all the comforts of home. DaVidgil House Complete secures the entire accommodation for an extended familiy and / or friends, all of which is surrounded with walkways, outside dining areas, gardens, and just a few paces farther, a deck overlooking the South Fork River. Often times, the wayfarer can see wild ducks, deer, mountain lions, bears, bob cats, possums, skunks, snakes, squirrels, to name just a few, and the insect life is teaming with energy. The DaVidgil House is located approximately 5 miles from Lake Kaweah, 10 miles from the Entrance to Sequoia National Park (which is home to the world's largest living things - Giant Sequoia Redwood Trees), 255 miles north of Los Angels, 265 miles south of San Francisco, and 225 miles east of the Pacific coast. In other words, centrally located for your vacation needs.

This house was built by an artist, designer, woodworker, the daughter of a building contractor; and an environmental scientist, artisan builder, and the son of a water/civil engineer. With eyes for detail, an artistic bent, and the love of nature, DaVidgil House is well appointed, luxurious, and unlike anything else.

Lona purchased this house in 1983

This property has a perfect location nestled in the Canyon with the South Fork River running right through it. The wild life is abundant and the natural surroundings majestic and gorgeous.

The benefit of staying at the DaVidgil House is not only the luxurious ambiance, but how centrally located it is, in as far as it is conveniently close to town, Sequoia National Park, Lake Kaweah, and numerous other sites while remaining remote and peaceful in its location.

Peaceful retreat right on the river!

  • 5 of 5
This unique custom home is right on the river and is just a few miles down the road from the entrance to Sequoia National Park. Three Rivers is a quaint little town with all the amenities one would require for a restful retreat from the city. With incredible views of the river and the mountains this home did not disappoint. The home itself had everything you needed plus it was clean and well kept. Were from Florida, stayed here a couple days to see the Giant Sequoias and then headed off to San Francisco for a few days. We all wished we had just stayed here for the entire trip! We definitely will plan another trip here again. If your looking to get away from the hustle and bustle and reconnect with nature in the comfort of a home, this is the place to go!

When we travel around the country, my wife and I always try to locate a "best kept secret" type VRBO in the area we're staying. Something close enough to humanity to access an acceptable cooked meal and see the local sights, but apart from people, with outdoor space for ourselves. Unique accommodations with thoughtful, artistic design, eclectic furnishings, solitude, and a view of nature. We can rarely find all of this in one VRBO, but Davidgil met all these expectations. Davidgil is "museum level quality comfort". We stayed in the studio for two nights, separate from, and beneath the main house. Absolutely perfect for a couple.The artisan/owner's, Gregg and Lona humbly showed us the entirety of their work throughout the main house They have left no stone unturned, no detail missed, in their restoration, design, and furnishing of this California home and the adjacent studio Reclaimed and natural materials throughout, their home is a work of art with a California mountain-home Sierra scheme. Surprising that it can be rented at all. Both the studio and full house are priced very reasonably for this unique quality of accommodation. The two rentals combined, this is a perfect home for quite a few people, a family, or several couples. Build a campfire on the riverbank right out the back door; 30 minutes to the Big Trees, or see no one; Tastefully furnished kitchens, or nearby restaurants.
Had we known how nice it was, we'd have rented longer to spend more time here, than sharing our days with the National Park crowds.
Huge plus if the owners happen to be there and everyone has the opportunity and desire to engage one another. We were not sure they were even on the property, as they were virtually invisible-but-available during our stay, but after meeting them, the house and property are simply an extension of their artistry, creativity, and kinship. Wonderful people.
Score.

Perfectly Picturesque

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we drove up, until our tires hit the pavement as we drove away we were in awe of the sheer beauty of this property. The attention to detail that the owners have put into this home and all of its ammenities are simply devine. Every single thing has been throughly thought out and designd to create a true masterpiece of a home.
We rented the studio for our wedding weekend and honeymoon and though we got married in Sequoia National Forrest, we chose to have our photos taken on the Devidgil property. The studio was absolutely perfect for the two of us and was well equiped with everything we needed for the weekend. The owners were very accomonating to us and made sure we were comfortable and tended to our every need.
We originally planned to stay 3 nights but couldn't bring ourselves to leave and changed our travel plans to stay another day.
We left with tears in our eyes, fond memories in our hearts and plans to return again and again.

Awesome Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We have visited the DaVidgil House twice now and plan to make an anual trip to this awesome retreat. The property exceeded our expectations in every way. The home is a work of art and as architects we cant stop admiring all of the beauty found in every detail of this fiary tale place. We visit with our family of 4 and love to hang out at the river, play ping pong, and just enjoy the peaceful serenity of the mountain and river views. The river comes right up to the edge of the property and affords a beautiful view to distant King's Canyon mountain peaks. We drive into the park when we visit which is very close and offers so many different places to visit. We highly recomend this property and could not find the owner's more accomodating or the home more enjoyable. Every room is spotless and fresh flowers and fresh air blowing through the windows always awaits us upon arrival.

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I've always wanted to visit Sequoia National Park and we chose the Davidgil house as our home base. It was the perfect choice.

This house has everything you need for a great weekend in the country - big bedrooms, a lovely country kitchen and a huge property along the riverside.

The house has many fanciful touches that make it fun to explore. And it was big enough that we were able to have some friends up from Visalia who – even tho it was only 30 minutes away – felt they were on vacation. And the kids absolutely loved being alongside the river.

The owners were a pleasure to work with in scheduling our visit. And we had no problems at any point during our stay.

Definitely recommended!

Artist retreat - AMAZING

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had the most wonderful experience at the Davidgil House. We went up to spend time away from the city and focus on artistic projects - the setting enhanced our experience. Spending time by the river, the grounds, and in the house provided a truly inspirational retreat. Lona and Gregg have put love and art into this property. Can't wait to go back, it exceeded our expectations. Thank you Lona and Gregg!
