About Helene Baeza and Timothy Thomas
I'm Helene. I've been living in the mountains here for more than 40 years because I love nature, the lakes and all things natural. The mountains are in my blood. I've been in the hospitality business for more than 40 years. Timothy and I had a vision, and built our place to share with likeminded folk. I'm a longtime lover of the blues. My father taught me to love and respect nature, music, camping and peaceful co-existence. I was born and raised in North Hollywood. Every summer we rented cabins at Bass Lake, which is how I came to call Oakhurst home. My life motto is 'be kind to people."
Helene Baeza and Timothy Thomas purchased this Cabin in 2018
Why Helene Baeza and Timothy Thomas chose Oakhurst
We love the unique quality of our yurt. We built it ourselves and put many personal touches and quality into the design and functionality. We would love to stay in it ourselves!!!
What makes this Cabin unique
Our yurt is just quality with a sense of being in nature at the same time as having the luxury of comfort combined with all the simple nice amenities of home. Truly a refreshing place for mind and body. It has become a go to for romantic couples celebrating life and each other!

We had never experienced a yurt before and we were blown away by how comfortable the experience was. Serene and dreamy sums it up. The bed was very comfortable and the environment was very quiet and relaxing. The whole facility was much larger than I expected with a full kitchen, bath and deck all connected to the yurt under a canopy with twinkle lights strung in the trees. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and we only wish we could of stayed longer.
Great cozy place to stay
We had a fantastic stay. Helena and Timothy are friendly and extremely helpful. The details in the property truly show the care they give each guest. Don’t pass on this property you will love it!
Great base for Yosemite
A very unique property. It was tremendous. It was good to relax and have a beer on the patio and just enjoy the scene. The yurt itself is very nice. A lot of little touches. The hosts greeted us, showed us how things worked and made themselves available for recommendations. The wife and I would have loved to stay longer but the logistics just did not allow it. Great place and we would certainly come back if we are in the area!
Peace in the mountains
Helene and Timothy were excellent hosts, giving us the resources we needed to be comfortable and also giving us privacy and quiet space to enjoy the property. The yurt is beautifully constructed in a peaceful grove that was a haven of birds and deer. We were there during the Yosemite fire season and yet we were completely comfortable. The air conditioner gave us a clean indoor space and the shaded grove was cool and refreshing. All the facilities worked perfectly and we had everything we needed to enjoy homemade meals and drinks on a beautiful balcony overlooking graceful oaks and wildflowers. We would definitely stay here again as a base for exploring the Sierras or Yosemite.
We are 15 miles from the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park. A must see! About 50 minutes to the valley floor.
We also are surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains with
many high country lakes and streams to explore. Our Yurt is very secluded and peaceful. Our town is 7 minutes away and has all of the amenities you might need. Hope to see you soon!
