Knarly Oaks Pool House

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and loved the location! Nice, spacious house, fit all of us just fine. Easy to get to and also made it easy for us to take a day trip to Yosemite.

Relaxing with nature

  • 5 of 5

My family and I needed a vacation, but we needed to be able to bring our dog as well. When we drove up we knew it was perfect. The land around the house is expansive and beautiful, inside the house was quaint and warm. We loved being able to sit in the hot tub after a long day of hiking in Yosemite and looking at the stars.

Also if you enjoy bird watch this property is a birds paradise. I would go back as soon as I could.

And the town of Mariposa is sweet with several great places to eat. We loved breakfasts at Sugar Pine Diner.

Owner's Response: We are glad you loved the house and area as much as we do. The blue cheese and bacon burger at the Sugar Pine Cafe is also fantastic.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

We had nine beautiful days in paradise. Seclusion, quiet, multiple variety of birds and wildlife. About 45 minutes from the park entrance to Yosemite but what a beautiful drive to get there. Easy access from Mariposa, we ate at Savoury's restaurant twice, wonderful dinners, highly recommend to all. House was comfortable especially the patio, where you can spend hours looking at the beautiful mountains and surrounding valley.

Owners were very attentive to our needs and quick to notify us by email to let us know that the west entrance to Yosemite was closed due to fire. We appreciated it as we were about to use the west entrance to enter the park that very day, thanks Kim and Keith!!!

House was cool and very comfortable and we used the BBQ almost every night, ate our dinners on the patio and felt like we were in a 5 star restaurant. Pool and spa were great and all worked well. Bed was very comfortable, and enjoyed Netflicks while there.

Would stay again, no hesitation.

Great retreat in the hills!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at the Knarly Oaks Pool House with my family and dog. The location can't be beat -- secluded enough so you feel like you have the whole mountaintop to yourself, but still a short drive away from Yosemite, the Gold Country, Mariposa and Oakhurst. All of the amenities worked flawlessly.

Knarly Oaks

  • 4 of 5

Lovely little home on the hilltop with a small pool and really great hot tub. Very clean and comfortable with the convenience of a great utility room and a small office space which was great as my husband had to take some business calls when we were away. Very clean with all the pots, pans and dishes you could ever need and even pool toys for the children and books to read. The birds were amazing and we loved seeing the wild turkey family come to visit every day. We used the fold down but it was not so comfortable. So all in all 9.1/2 out of 10 and we would love to come back. We planned to take our dogs but on this occasion I left them home. If you have small dogs then they would escape through the fence so be prepared to have them on lead all the time while outside with you. Lots of clean sheets, towels and spotless bathrooms.......

Owner's Response: Thank you for all you comments. We will look into the sofa bed issue, to improve the comfort or replace it. Your comfort is very important to us.

We had a wonderful time at the pool house. Beautiful hilltop vista view. Birds, rabbits, deer, wild turkeys, hummingbirds (lots) and deer visited the yard. We were close to Yosemite, had everything we needed, and a pool to keep cool. A return trip must be in our future!
