About Maureen Lucero

We've been buying and managing vacation homes in the Oakhurst area since 2008.

Maureen Lucero purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Maureen Lucero chose Yosemite Area

We find it a challenge to buy neglected, abandoned homes and bring them back to "life".

What makes this cabin unique

Oakhurst can get very hot during the summer months (high 90's to low 100's) so having a private, in-ground pool for our guests to cool off in was a very important feature when we decided to buy this vacation home. The pool is swimmable usually from late May to early September.

The southern entrance to Yosemite National Park is only 20 minutes from our home in Oakhurst, CA off Hwy 41 at the Mariposa Grove of Giant Redwoods. It is then another 45 minutes to the valley floor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Favorite moments/special highlights: Waking my 10 year old up at 2 AM to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower pool side.

Also enjoyed seeing "Bull Buck" and "Big Ed" in Nelder Grove (giant redwoods).

What we did: Swam in the pool, sat in the hot tub, read books, watched the meteor shower, hiked in Nelder Grove, played foosball.

Homey, Comfortable and Relaxing...

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at the Cabin with my 2 sisters and 2 nieces and had the best time. Maureen was so easy to work with, responsive to questions and just easy going. Did not have to jump through any hoops to book, easy peasy. The house was well stocked, large and comfortable. We enjoyed the hot tub after running the Yosemite half marathon, it soothed our aching legs. The pool was a little chilly, but was very relaxing to lay by after our run. The weather was fantastic. The kitchen was very well stocked, with a really nice grocery store nearby, we ended up eating most of our meals at the house. Maureen was so thoughtful and left us runner appropriate snacks. We felt that was just amazingly thoughtful and reflected her attentiveness. Check out was easy as well with just a few, really simple chores. I highly recommend this family friendly home. It suited our needs perfectly. Oh and I just loved the light fixtures, very vintage. Thank you Maureen! It was awesome. Rhea, Vanessa, Lisa, Katie and Christy the Sista's with Blista's ;-)

Great cabin close to Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation, the cabin is very spacious and comfortable, and we absolutely loved the pool, as the temperature was in the 90s. The kitchen is very well equiped, and the BBQ on the patio was very easy to use. There are TVs in every room, the wi-fi worked fine, and there are many ways to keep entertained. We had a lot of fun playing ping-pong by the pool.

Maureen was great, very responsive, and we appreciated a lot her tips regarding things to do in and around Yosemite. The drive to Nelder Grove was quite an adventure, and we were happy to see the Sequoia trees, as Mariposa Grove in the Park was closed.

We'll try to go back and stay in the cabin again.

Great "home base" in the Sierras!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property that was perfect for our family. The cabin was clean and comfortable with plenty of room to spread out. Our teenage son enjoyed the studio apartment. The kitchen was the most well-stocked that we have ever experienced. The cabin was centrally located to all our planned activities. Close to Bass Lake, restaurants, and stores. Nelder Grove was a short drive and the hiking was excellent. No crowds compared to the trails within Yosemite. We enjoyed the swimming pool after a long day of activities and had quite a battle at the Foosball table!!! The home owner was fabulous and easy to work with. She checked in with us periodically to make sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely come back next time we vacation in the area!

Great cabin with all the goodies!

  • 5 of 5

We were two couple and two dog and stayed in the cabin for 3 nights. The property is big and there's plenty of room to chill and relax, whether it is in the living room, the game room, the pool or the hot tub.

Very recommended!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful property. The kids had a blast swimming, playing pool, and using this as our home base to explore the surrounding area. The cabin is just adorable! It was clean, neat, and we immediately felt at home.

Maureen is the best! She told us what to expect, so the check in/check out was seamless. She also gave us information and tips on attractions and where to go exploring.

I would definitely recommend the Sugar Pine Railroad, horseback riding, and of course driving into Yosemite.

I cannot recommend this rental enough.

Thanks Maureen for a wonderful stay!!!!
