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.

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 2 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.

We stayed at the DaVidgil house over Christmas holiday, for a week. We rented the whole house and it accommodated the 7 of us very comfortably. The studio was especially nice as mom & dad's haven, while our adult children each enjoyed having their own special unique bedrooms/baths. Although accommodations were far and above expected, the lovely character, the incredibly peaceful/beautiful setting, welcoming hosts created an experience for our family we will forever cherish. The decor, art, rhythm of nature all around are irresistible, and both calming & invigorating! We so appreciated the opportunity to cook robust meals in the well equipped kitchen where we spent much time around the table- reminiscing and planning for the day/s activities ahead. The special touches of holiday decor throughout the house graced our season together; we did not miss for a moment the usual traditions- including putting up the tree!!! We all agreed General Sherman, hiking Moro Rock, S'mores by the river, toasty fireside guitar sessions and exploring the area were tops - Let's do this every year!
A real gem!!!!

a relaxing artists retreat

From the moment we arrived at this beautiful home I think everyone in our group was entranced by the warmth and hospitality of Lona and Greg as well as the creativity that went into every detail of the house design. The place belongs in a fairytale, and the loft is every child's (or adult!) dream room! The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed, and there is a grocery store less than 2 miles away. It was the perfect setting for our artists retreat. The location is beautiful, just a short drive to the sequoias. Sadly the park was closed because of the government shut down, but we enjoyed just hanging out at the house, playing with the cats and exploring the area. The river is in the backyard, including a sun deck and a fire pit, perfect to gather around and stargaze. No one wanted to leave, in fact we want to make this an annual retreat. I cant recommend Davidgil house enough.

Beautiful Stream-side Stay

We travel all over Southern California for my husbands work and try to stay in VRBO homes as much as possible and this was by far the best experience we have ever had!

Lona and Greg were truly amazing hosts, which to us is the key to a great stay!! They made our time there comfortable and answered any questions we had. They were very friendly easy to talk to.

We rented the studio for two weeks and were very pleased at the home's charm and beauty. It was very clean and well maintained with everything we needed for a relaxing working vacation.
There is so much history built into the home and has been, without a doubt, a labor of love for Lona and Greg. Their construction talents shine through in all the details of the home, especially Lona's woodworking and tile details (just BEAUTIFUL). Also, ask to see Lona's amazing artwork displayed on the walls upstairs.

There is a stream that runs through the back of the property. Although it was not running when we were there, we were still able to relax and enjoy the outdoors on their beautiful property by BBQing out on the outdoor patio.

The Davidgil House is within just a few miles from the entrance to the Sequoia National Park and Lake kaweah (where we did some fishing).

Our lab Koa also loved it there....especially all the love he got from Greg!!!

We would highly recommend the Davidgil house to anyone and hope to go back often!!!

We stayed for 3 magical nights which will live long in our memories. Lona and Greg are so friendly and very welcoming, and very interesting people. It sounds clichéd but the photographs do not convey how beautiful the place actually is, the attention to detail was above and beyond any boutique hotel. The stay was so relaxing.

Simply Amazing

What a find!!! Davidgil house is beyond anything we had expected. I had rented the entire house for our group of 6, as we explored Sequoia National Park. From the descriptions on VRBO, I expected to find a quaint house in a serene location, with nice amenities and well equipped kitchen.
Davidgil house turned out to be all that and so much more. Lona and Greg were so delightful and helpful. It was obvious that Lona took great pains in preparing her house for her guests - thinking of every little detail, so that her guests would have an unforgettable experience.
The house is a labor of love - we spent the first hour or 2 just taking in all the architectural details and being inspired by the love and attention that Lona and Greg had put into their house.
Since we had a chef in our group, we knew that we would be treated to gourmet meals and were hoping for a nice kitchen. The beautiful and well appointed kitchen was a delight to work in - so much so that we spent most of our time in the kitchen - cooking and enjoying each others company.
The bedrooms, bathrooms and living area were are very nicely appointed, with all that we needed, including great music selection. Greg was kind enough to let me borrow some of his CDs to copy and return to him later on.
The riverfront and the deck were beautiful. Eventhough the river was dry at the time of our visit, we still enjoyed wine and cheese in the outdoor setting as we listened to the sound of birds.
All in all, I can not say enough about Davidgil house. We know we will return to this beautiful home again and again.
Thank you Lona and Greg for sharing your home with us.
