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.

Fantastic location to relax

  • 4 of 5

The property is very well equipped with everything you need for a great stay. Outside the pool and hot tub were a great bonus for the kids and the adults for that matter! It's not very often you can sit in your garden and watch deer eat their tea which was fantastic.

If there was a slight down side the inside of the house is quite dated but in no way did this stop our enjoyment.

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.
