Overview

Yosemite National Park House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The Hummingbird Pines House is a newly renovated home, with easy access. It is one of the only rentals in Yosemite West with only two stairs into the house, making it ideal for guests of all ages. Our other house in Yosemite West is Hummingbird Raven House, listing #94764.

Please check availability on our calendar before contacting us.

This house sleeps a maximum of 10 people.

This is a large house (1700 square feet) so we require a minimum of 4 guests over the age of 3.

Up to 2 children under age 3 stay free, 10% discount on one week stays. (Please let us know if any of your children are aged 3 and under when you fill out the inquiry form.)

Yosemite West is inside Yosemite National Park. It is only a twenty minute drive from El Capitan and Yosemite Village, and all the main attractions of Yosemite National Park. This is also the closest lodging for Badger Pass Ski Area, with downhill and nordic skiing - only eight miles away from your door.

This Yosemite West home is located close to the Glacier Point Road, so you are very close to Taft Point and Glacier Point, the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley.

The upstairs master bedroom has a king size bed and bath. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. We have an upstairs loft area with two single beds, and a fold-out sofa bed in the downstairs living area which sleeps 2. All beds have comforters and pillows. Note: we cannot accommodate more than 10 guests at a time. We also have a 2 night minimum.

This house is equipped with a full kitchen, a large dining table and deck dining furniture.

Like most homes in Yosemite West, Hummingbird Pines House does not have air conditioning.

About Michelle and Peter

Peter and Michelle

We have visited and loved Yosemite for many years, and are thrilled to have two vacation rentals in the park.

We love Yosemite for hiking, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and spending time in nature. Please feel free to email us with questions!

Michelle and Peter purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle and Peter chose Yosemite National Park

Hummingbird Pines is in the park, but outside the bustle of Yosemite Valley so it is quiet and peaceful. This house is ideal for groups of family and friends who want a nice house to come back to after a long day of adventure

What makes this house unique

This house is unusual in Yosemite West for it's easy access - there are only 2 stairs leading into the house, making it ideal for family groups with elderly members. It's a beautiful, large house with a cathedral ceiling in the living room. The house has a large kitchen and dining area, a barbecue on the deck and large living room with DVD player and DVD library.

Yosemite West is inside the Park boundaries, so it's a perfect location to enjoy Yosemite (20 minutes to Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point, and close to various trailheads). It has the advantage of being very close to the Badger Pass ski area, and being at a higher elevation than the Valley, which keeps the temperatures more comfortable in the summer months.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great location. Nicely nestled in a group of homes inside the park. The Dogwoods are blooming and there are some nice trees in the small backyard. We had fun watching a pair of Bluejays building a nest on the patio. Clean, orderly and nice ceilings in the living room. The best too is park access. We really enjoyed our stay and Peter and Michelle were very responsive to any questions we had. Thank you for an amazing weekend!

Good Experience but house needs update and repairs

  • 2 of 5

This is our first time to stay inside Yosemite Park and it was a good experience. House is in a tranquil environment and very spacious for our family. There are minor issues with the dirty oven, downstairs bathroom sink only has one faucet working ( the hot water one), the beds are very old and not comfortable, coffe maker was not working properly. We thought with the price we paid for this house , we expected better accommodations.

Despite all these issues, we adapted and had a great time in Yosemite.

The Good and The Bad

  • 3 of 5

This spacious cabin is conveniently located a short drive from Yosemite Valley off of Highway 41 in Yosemite West. It's actually also on the way to Glacier Point which has spectacular views of the Valley. We arrived at the cabin to find a spacious retreat that could easily host 6 adults and 2 children. It was clean and they even had a little toy bowl and treats for our dog. Furniture is in great condition and the fire place adds a nice cozy feel to the living room.

The kitchen is a bit outdated and the appliances are old. The refrigerator was missing shelves for some reason and the oven took a really long time to preheat. If you plan to cook, use the grill. Also, bring everything from aluminum foil to spices because aside from the dishes and silverware nothing is provided.

For what we paid per night, I had really hoped for a view. Nothing spectacular, but even a glance of the backside valley from the deck would had made it all worthwhile... The check-in time is 4PM which is really late and basically wasted an entire day. Having no phone service, no WiFi, and no TV after the initial detox became almost peaceful. All in all the place starts to grow on you and we made the best of our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Hannu - thanks for staying with us, and letting us know about the kitchen shelves, which we were unaware of (we will let our housekeepers know about this). Also, although check in time is 4pm we often have guests drop off their food and bags earlier - noon or after - so they can enjoy the day in the park and not worry about check in time. Our housekeepers were cleaning, but would have been happy to have you drop off your belongings earlier than 4pm. We're sorry that you were expecting a view of Yosemite Valley - although it's inside the park, Yosemite West is 25 minutes away from the valley, and on the other side of a ridge, so the valley isn't visible at all from anywhere in Yosemite West. All the best, Michelle and Peter

Beautiful house, conveniently located!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Hummingbird Pines House! The house itself is beautiful and was spacious and comfortable for our family of 6. Yosemite West is 25 minutes from Yosemite Valley, so this is a perfect location for exploring the park. We loved the deck and BBQ, and will definitely return!

Great location in a nice environment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the house. Lots of attention to details and a very clean house. We enjoyed the deck and BBQ, after spending the days hiking in the parks. The house was perfect for us and comfortable for 8. We would recommend in a heartbeat!

Wonderfully comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Our family from California and Massachusetts stayed here while visiting Yosemite National Park and it was perfect. It gave us a convenient location (about 25 minutes from Yosemite Valley) and the ability to spend time together. The setting was beautiful, the accommodations comfortable, and location convenient. Thanks so much.
