About Sharon Turney

Don Turney, a music producer, and Sharon Turney, a Children's Music Director, live with their 2 daughters in Hayward CA.

Why Sharon Turney chose Yosemite Area

Sharon and Don Turney designed 'The Escape' and had it built in 2006.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You're not going to find a better rental and for the price. We chose the Escape after spending a few hours looking at the VRBO site. Sharon and her mother in law were really easy to work with, the place was everything as advertised and we had a great family reunion.

Pros: outdoor grilling and dining. Plenty of deck space for our entire family to be outside. Family room was spacious for all of us to relax. Beautiful nights to star gaze

We really had nothing to complain about and were able to enjoy the lake, Yosemite and the house. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and look forward to the next time we can return.

Viosit to 'the Escape'

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a wonderful few days at 'the Escape'. The property exceeded all our expectations.The location is superb. It is an easy drive to Yosemite and to the Columbia State Historic Park. We hope to return one day. Many thanks to Sharon and her family for helping to make our first visit to California something we will never forget.

Great Family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the escape. The property was as described and was a good launching base to Yosemite. The area - Pine Mountain Lake - also offered many activities (swimming, eating, tennis, golf, etc.) The Escape was clean and comfy and easily accommodated our family of 4 (children 2.5 yo and 4 months). We would have preferred that the linens be included and on the beds as you just want torelax when you arrive. The option to clean yourself is nice. We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice house in the Yosemite area.

Lovely getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We used this home as a base camp when our son got married near Yosemite, and it was just perfect. It was comfortable, nicely furnished, and wonderfully located for exploring Yosemite. The gated community has great amenities.

House is bugged with video-cameras and microphones. If you care about your privacy then don't rent this place.

Owner's Response: As with many properties in the area, we have one outdoor security camera at the front door, clearly visible. There are no other cameras, bugs or recording devices of any kind, as that would be illegal. Rest assured our guests' privacy is important to us, and the outdoor camera ensures the security of "The Escape" and all who stay there!

Nice launching place for Yosemite.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, mother and I were happy overall. The instructions and directions were clear, and the house itself was as it was described and depicted in the photos. Though I don't so much like gated communities, the lake and area was beautiful. We enjoyed a nice short walk/hike down by a creek in Pine Mountain Lake with beautiful wildflowers. The drive to the entrance to Yosemite was maybe about 30-40 minutes, so it worked out pretty well as a nice launching pad. I loved that there was a piano at that house!

I realize after this experience that my personal preference is for rentals where the linens and towels are out and the beds are made when you arrive, rather than the use of linens and towels being an option that comes with an added fee. But I suppose that other people might be happy to be paying a little less by bringing their own. The only other thing that I wish we had known is that while the kitchen was well enough equipped with utensils, dishes, etc., we didn't find coffee, and some of the other staples that make it a little easier and cozier as a visitor. Overall, it was a very nice stay!
