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.

Overall, this place is great!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the owner and her mother were very kind. A couple of minor things could be changed to make it better for the renter but I don't like to complain so I won't mention the details here. Come stay here to be close to yosemite and have plenty of room to spread out. The town of Groveland is pretty cool and I wish I could have explored it more...maybe next time!

Best Experience with VRBO - Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our stay at The Escape! The home was beautiful in the perfect location! The house was nice and clean, nicely decorated, and very homey. The owners were friendly and quick to respond to messages, and very accomodating when changes needed to be made to our rental agreement. Thank you so much!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! There's always lots to do at "The Escape!" Table tennis, board games, puzzles, DVDs... A great kitchen to whip up a gourmet meal... A cozy fireplace with plush couches. Even if the weather doesn't cooperate, "The Escape" is a wonderful oasis!

Watch out for hidden costs!

  • 1 of 5

Very nice & comfortable home but beware of hidden/undisclosed costs. Not all costs are disclosed until after you're trapped. Our 2 night stay cost us over $500. BTW, CA-120 into Yosemite is closed so if you plan to stay here it's a 2 hr. drive to get into the park via CA-49 to Mariposa & CA-140.

Owner's Response: "The Escape" has no hidden costs. All costs are clearly disclosed in the "rates" section on the HomeAway webpage as well as our rental agreement. We value our guests and want them to have the best experience possible, and would never add fees after a rental agreement has been signed. CA-120 is only closed temporarily for flood repair during spring 2017.
