Latest Review May 1, 2017:

Heavenly *****

First things first – stop reading this review and book this house. OK, now that you’ve done that here’s why it’s a great decision. It’s a beautiful, interesting house - complete with nooks for reading, a porch for sleeping, a hide-away bedroom, intricate tile work and amazing craftsmanship. The setting is incredible – right next to the Kaweah River, with a firepit ready for your evening bonfire, a gazebo for relaxing or toasting your day at Sequoia, wildlife to keep you watching outside including a family of quail and a very friendly western scrub jay who will eat out of your hand.

The upper house has 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. (please note they are open to renting the home and just the king size bedroom to parties of two, two bedrooms for four, etc ) The master bedroom opens onto a screened in sleeping porch. The kitchen is very, very well equipped and stocked with spices and a few staples to get you started. Downstairs is a large, self-contained unit with living area, kitchenette, full bath with shower. Comfortable beds and lots of linens make life easy.

The house is a just few miles to the entrance of Sequoia National Park and is a perfect location for exploring this beautiful natural resource. We were torn between hiking in the park and lying in the hammock next to the river at this lovely house.

There are two grills (charcoal for the purists and gas for the convenience-minded) so head to Three Rivers to the Village Market with an excellent butcher in the back. Prices are high as you would expect of the only store for miles but they had what we needed for our stay.

Cara and Eric are gracious, helpful, communicative hosts. We were 3 generations and Eric provided a croquet set, paddle ball and even bubbles for the kids.

Trying to be helpful here – there are lots of stairs and the river really is right there rushing by with quite a current. If you have young kids and don’t want to be vigilant this may not be your house. Otherwise, book now.

Enjoy elegance, natural beauty, and wilderness surroundings with all the amenities of an up-scale sophisticated rental that provides comfort, relaxation, peace, and romance. It will quickly become your favorite get-away located in the foothills below Sequoia and Kings National Park. It is ideally situated to accommodate day excursions for site seeing adventures, but the grounds and accommodations at the DaVidgil House are a destination in themselves. One can sun bathe on the edge of the river, dine under the stars, build a fire on the sand in fall, winter or early spring, and walk among the sycamores; listen and see hawks and quail, and every now and then catch sight of the heron going up or down river. There is an an abundance of wildlife.

The DavidGil House is a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with exquisite views, and all the comforts of home; a lovely home for an extended familiy and /or friends, surrounded with walkways, outside dining areas, gardens, and just a few paces farther, a deck overlooking the South Fork River. There is an optional lower artist's studio with a king size bed, kitchenette, bathroom and separate entrance that sleeps 2, (please inquiry).

Often times, the wayfarer can see wild ducks, deer, mountain lions, bears, bob cats, possums, skunks, snakes, squirrels, to name just a few, and the insect life is teaming with energy. The DaVidgil House is located approximately 5 miles from Lake Kaweah, 8.6 miles from the Entrance to Sequoia National Park (which is home to the world's largest living things - Giant Sequoia Redwood Trees), 197 miles north of Santa Monica, West L.A., 265 miles south of San Francisco, and less than 200 miles east of the Pacific coast. In other words, centrally located for your vacation needs.

Note: Animals do not live here but a cat does visit.

Only nice people need apply!!!!

About Cara

We are new owners but proudly own this home that was built by an artist, designer, woodworker, the daughter of a building contractor; and an environmental scientist, artisan builder, and the son of a water/civil engineer. With eyes for detail, an artistic bent, and the love of nature, DaVidgil House is well appointed, luxurious, and unlike anything else. We have always loved Three Rivers since early in our relationship being just over three hours from Santa Monica where we live most of the time. Its unique gorgeousness, its playful rivers, majestic trees and small town atmosphere is a perfect balance to city-life.

Cara purchased this house in 2016

Why Cara chose Gold Country / High Sierra

This property has a perfect location nestled in the Canyon with the South Fork River running right through it. The wild life is abundant and the natural surroundings majestic and gorgeous.

What makes this house unique

The benefit of staying at the DaVidgil House is not only the luxurious ambiance, but how centrally located it is, in as far as it is conveniently close to town, Sequoia National Park, Lake Kaweah, and numerous other sites while remaining remote and peaceful in its location. It's on its own river front, it's close to the highway but off far enough for seclusion, it's only minutes to everything you have come to the area for including the only full service market, and numerous eating establishments.

Beautiful unique location. One of a kind I'm sure

Wow. Fabulous stay, words cannot really describe this space, magical is a good one and is used often, I see in the reviews. My family had stayed here with the previous owners several times over the years and always enjoyed the special ambiance of this home. We came to Three Rivers for hiking and and to see the park and we were all happy that this home was available. We are planning to rebook immediately for next April! Cara and Eric such attentive hosts, wild blue jays that eat out your hand, lush grounds, the sound of the river from every window, custom details that money cannot buy, artisans must simply create. Nothing run-of-the-mill here, cubby holes and privacy at every turn, a screened porch,

a back and a front entrance, a window seat, custom tile work, super comfortable beds, just beautiful like I have never seen, and peaceful and even though the house was full we all found our own rhythm and sense of privacy. A large hedge of majestic rock forms along the perimeters, a quick few minutes drive to most of the restaurants and the market and then five miles into the park. Thank you Eric and Cara, we appreciate your kindness and the home you offer to travelers!

Wow!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazingly designed house, beautifully upkept and managed by an amazing couple. Cara & Eric are such warm & caring hosts.

The house is phenomenal..We were able to rent just the studio during the week and then the whole house for the weekend when family came. A fantastic, very private property, right on the river with a BBQ gazebo area. We look forward to returning!

This house is MAGICAL hideaway. We just had a 3 day stay with 2 other families. We were all looking for a sanctuary to decompress from city life and this is exactly what this house provided us with. It's close to markets, a few restaurants there are in three rivers and also easily accessible to Sequioa National Park. All the rooms were wonderful. We rented the entire house. Every single room has been weaved with so much love, the details, the decor. The house was spotless and well maintained. There is a full kitchen in the upper suite and BBQ on the porch for cooking. Greg & Lona were lovely and so accommodating and pleasant to converse with. I'd love to come back and stay there again!

Perfect House, Perfecvt Location, Perfect Owners

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED and truely enjoyed our stay in what I like to call the tree house. We rented the top of the house and felt like we were sitting in the trees when we looked out the kitchen windows. My daughter and I have a love of art and are also artists and we really enjoyed staying in a one of a kind work of art. Every detail is so well planned out and it is just spectacular.

The location was also perfect for daily visits to Sequioa National Park. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed and it was so lovely to sit one night witha beverage near the river enjoying the outside too. We also really enjoyed Lona and Greg. They were so pleasant to talk to and we felt like we were part of the family. This is THE best VRBO rental we have found over the years.

The Davidgil house is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay in a work of art. The home is immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The amount of detail put into the home is mesmerizing and my husband and I would wonder around the house for hours marveling over the artistic detail of the home which the owners built themselves. The property itself is equally gorgeous and my family loved spending time in the huge yard and dangling our feet in the pristine river running through the property. The home had everything one could want or need in a vacation home and the owners are the nicest and most down to earth people. They made us feel right at home. If you want a peaceful retreat this is the spot to be.
