About Carol & Al Ruiz
We bought the property in 1994 with the idea of building a Duplex with a fantastic view. We had Top of the Pines built to our specifications in 1995. We designed the house so both sides has privacy.
Carol & Al Ruiz purchased this Condo in 1995

Fantastic 3 days in Yosemite (West) N.P.
This Dutch family of 5 very much enjoyed their stay at this beautiful home in the middle of nature. Next to the fantastic and famous sceneries of Yosemite N.P. we saw a deer, hunny birds and a bear, ALL trom the balcony of this property!
Thank you for the great review. It is guests like you that makes this all worth while.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Lovely home in the heart of Yosemite West
Excellent accommodations in Yosemite West. We were so nervous about the Detwiler fire, and Carol was nothing but helpful in assuaging our concerns. We had a group of 7 25-yo friends from college, and the home was the perfect space for all of us. If you want to hike Yosemite and come home to all the comforts of home, stay at top of the pines! Well stocked kitchen in terms of pots and pans and Tupperware. Balconies are lovely for sitting out at night and eating dinner. Thank you for everything, Carol and Al!
Thank you that was a great review. We appreciate guest like you. Please return again real soon.
Staying right near Glacier Point
Staying here allows you to cut down your driving time in and out of the park each day. It is just at the entrance of Glacier Point which makes it very convenient.
The house it self was wonderful. All the things you would have in your own home.
One recommendation would be to improve the BBQ as it is a little tired and cooks terribly uneven.
Please buy a kettle for boiling water for tea.International traveller require a kettle.
The owners were organised and helpful.
You would be very pleased with your stay here.
Thank you for the fantastic review. It is nice to have guest like you. We hope you will return again real soon.
Nice Home in the Yosemite Wilderness
Top of the Pines provided us with comfortable accommodations on the edge of Yosemite. It provided us with easy access to the Park. The home was well equipped and clean. It was nice to have Dish TV although we didn't use it much. We enjoyed are stay.
thank you for the nice review. We appreciate guest like you who take care of the property. Please return again real soon.
Cozy & comfortable - ideal location close to the Valley Floor
Unable to locate any accommodations (camping or otherwise) on the valley floor in Yosemite, we happily stumbled on this place, which is 15-20 minutes from all the must see sites of the valley, but thankfully very far away from the traffic and madness of the tourists that swarm the valley. The owners provided useful information to welcome and orient us and their home was clean, quiet, and cozy. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, pots, etc. We enjoyed the back deck and the chance to relax in comfort after a long, arduous day of hiking. This is a great option for families who may not want to rough it, but want to visit one of the U.S.'s national park gems.
Thank you for the fantastic review. We appreciate you taking the time to write such a great review.
We hope to see you again real soon.
Comfortable home near the park
Yosemite West is about as close as you can get to the park without staying in the park. This house was a comfortable choice for my family and I'd definitely consider staying here again on a future trip!
David, Thank you for the great review. We appreciate guest like you.
thanks again. Hope to see you real again real soon.
Top of the Pines offers a great place to stay while visiting the best National Park in the States. There are lots of ways to enjoy this park. Hiking, Sight Seeing, Picnicking by the river, relaxing on the deck or watching the climbers on El Captain. . The Water Falls are awesome to see.
