About Sandy

My husband and I met while going to school in Mariposa, got married 37 years ago, had 2 children who were born and raised here and now we have two grandchildren. We love living in the country and the privacy of our home.

Sandy purchased this house in 1986

Why Sandy chose Yosemite Area

Having a vacation rental here in Midpines is one of the closest places you can get, with traveling distance to Yosemite National Park. The town of Mariposa has so many things to offer, we enjoy the small town atmosphere.

What makes this house unique

Sitting on the deck in the morning and watching the sun come up while enjoying a cup of coffee is so serene, then sitting on the pool deck watching the kids play in the pool.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for all the goodies in the kitchen- all the spices and coffee and special extras, that was nice. We enjoyed the quiet, the hot tub and pool. The scent of the forest and especially the deer and the birds. Such a lovely setting! The cooler really worked great for our picnics and our grocery shopping, so glad you had it here. (wonderful that you thought of it). We appreciated the wifi so we could upload photos and use our computers. Thank you for the hospitality, glad we got to chat the other day.

Terrific place to stay outside Yosemite

  • 4 of 5

This was a really nice place to stay outside Yosemite. It took us about 35 minutes to get to the park. Easy drive. The house was well equipped with everything you could need, including walking sticks for hikes and a cooler to use. Shampoos, etc were in the bathrooms, plenty of cooking spices, a nice outdoor grill and picnic table, a very warm hot tub for soaking after long hikes and a great above ground pool for cooling off in. The property sits on acreage, which attracted lots of wild turkeys, a neighbors horse to welcome us, plenty of deer and birds. The owners had left the freezer stocked with plenty of ice ready for our use and 10-12 ice cube trays to make more ice. A wine refrigerator divided the living from the large kitchen. Plenty of room for our 5 people. Comfortable beds, plenty of towels, satillite tv and internet. It's an older home, but this was a really good choice and would highly recommend it.

Nature in your backyard

  • 4 of 5

Sandy's place was perfect for our group of 7. The home was spacious and clean with all the necessary supplies for our 3 day trip. Each morning we woke up to the sight of deer, woodpeckers, and jackrabbits right outside the window. Nights were peaceful and cool.

It's about a 40 minute drive to the front gates of Yosemite.

Great for Families

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for my family of 10 to stay in (with two kids on the floor with air mattresses in the room with the King mattress). The King size mattress was very comfortable. It had everything we needed (except for a wine bottle opener which luckily my brother had in his car). We used the pool and hot tub daily after our hikes in Yosemite. The sump cooler kept up with the 102-104 heat wave. There was a cute little playhouse, with an Old West theme. There were toys there for the little ones to play with. There was lots of wildlife to look at - we kept seeing turkeys every day. We made almost 100% of our meals in the well equiped kitchen. I would however recommend bringing your own spices with you, there are some, but they are very limited. Also, the older dishwasher requires you to run hot water first before running it. We had lots of dishes come out covered in dishwashing soap. This place wasn't brand new but was just what we needed. It was very clean. The location was great, it was 1 hour away from Yosemite and 15 minutes away from the grocery store. We made a lot of great memories here. We will definitely try coming back to this place again.

Great except for too much chlorine and a noisy air con

  • 3 of 5

We love the quiet neighborhood and friendly neighbors. Great fully equipped kitchen and bunk beds helped with numbers. The pump for the pool wasn't working and so there was more chlorine than needed. Also the hot tub had so much chlorine as soon as I got in I was coughing and my eyes hurt. Needless to say we didn't use the hot tub with the kids (which they were looking forward to) during our trip.

The deck needs to TLC as do the pool and hot tub. If these get fixed we would come back

Very convenient house with fully equipped kitchen, enough space for two families and many cool "extras" such as games for kids, jacuzzi, pool and horse in the back yard!
