Overview

Yosemite Area House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

The Hummingbird Pines House is a newly renovated home, with easy access. It is one of the only rentals in Yosemite West with only two stairs into the house, making it ideal for guests of all ages. Our other house in Yosemite West is Hummingbird Raven House, listing #94764.

Please check availability on our calendar before contacting us.

This house sleeps a maximum of 10 people.

This is a large house (1700 square feet) so we require a minimum of 4 guests over the age of 3.

Up to 2 children under age 3 stay free, 10% discount on one week stays. (Please let us know if any of your children are aged 3 and under when you fill out the inquiry form.)

Yosemite West is inside Yosemite National Park. It is only a twenty minute drive from El Capitan and Yosemite Village, and all the main attractions of Yosemite National Park. This is also the closest lodging for Badger Pass Ski Area, with downhill and nordic skiing - only eight miles away from your door.

This Yosemite West home is located close to the Glacier Point Road, so you are very close to Taft Point and Glacier Point, the most spectacular views of Yosemite Valley.

The upstairs master bedroom has a king size bed and bath. Downstairs are two additional bedrooms, each with a queen size bed. We have an upstairs loft area with two single beds, and a fold-out sofa bed in the downstairs living area which sleeps 2. All beds have comforters and pillows. Note: we cannot accommodate more than 10 guests at a time. We also have a 2 night minimum.

This house is equipped with a full kitchen, a large dining table and deck dining furniture.

Like most homes in Yosemite West, Hummingbird Pines House does not have air conditioning.

About Michelle and Peter

Peter and Michelle

We have visited and loved Yosemite for many years, and are thrilled to have two vacation rentals in the park.

We love Yosemite for hiking, climbing, skiing, wildlife viewing and spending time in nature. Please feel free to email us with questions!

Michelle and Peter purchased this house in 2013

Why Michelle and Peter chose Yosemite Area

Hummingbird Pines is in the park, but outside the bustle of Yosemite Valley so it is quiet and peaceful. This house is ideal for groups of family and friends who want a nice house to come back to after a long day of adventure

What makes this house unique

This house is unusual in Yosemite West for it's easy access - there are only 2 stairs leading into the house, making it ideal for family groups with elderly members. It's a beautiful, large house with a cathedral ceiling in the living room. The house has a large kitchen and dining area, a barbecue on the deck and large living room with DVD player and DVD library.

Yosemite West is inside the Park boundaries, so it's a perfect location to enjoy Yosemite (20 minutes to Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point, and close to various trailheads). It has the advantage of being very close to the Badger Pass ski area, and being at a higher elevation than the Valley, which keeps the temperatures more comfortable in the summer months.

Beautiful house in Yosemite West

  • 5 of 5

Who knew that there was an amazing little community set in the middle of Yosemite? This house was absolutely perfect for our group. The high ceiling allowed for good air flow, the house is well kept and there was sufficient, level parking - a major plus. Close enough to get to the major attractions of Yosemite, secluded enough that we could retreat from the world when desired. The house comfortably slept nine adults and an infant and was stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. No internet access at the house but that was one of the reasons we liked it so much! No one was looking at their phones and we were able to fully enjoy the beauty of Yosemite and just being together! Kitchen is a little dated but functional. Definitely would come back.

Owner's Response: Hi Juliana - We don't provide firewood for guests for the same reason we ask guests not use the fireplace unless it's Winter - Yosemite is tinder dry right now after 5 years of drought. Traffic to Yosemite Valley can be bad in Summer and we advise our guests to plan trips the valley with traffic in mind, or go early in the day to avoid the worst traffic.

Cozy, Charming and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Hummingbird Pines House and would definitely recommend it for a family traveling or another small group. It had all the amenities we needed, and was a perfect distance to all the sites we wanted to see in Yosemite. Although it would have been nice to have cable, it was good for us to disconnect and they had a wonderful selection of DVDs to watch. We couldn't have enjoyed it more, thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, Cathy, and we're so glad your family enjoyed the Hummingbird Pines House! We don't have satellite TV because trees around the house block access to the south sky, making transmission non-existent. We do have a large DVD library with selections for adults and kids. Thanks again!

Big house, nice place, didn´t expect to find such a nice place

  • 5 of 5

The house is just in the middle of the forest, far enough from the other houses to feel the inmensity of Yosemite and not to far as not to feel alone!! Totally recomendable for a family like ours, 5 pax. Many rooms, to many that we could have been 2 families and still fit. Kitchen perfect, books to read, table games to play, even binoculars that we took to see El Capitan. Good recommendations from the owner, we went in a 4WD and took chains, although didn´t use them, it is a must as there was snow everywhere.

This house is outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, this house was outstanding. If anything, the host is under-selling the place, as the photos don't do it justice. The hosts were extremely helpful and cooperative, and this rental far exceeded our expectations. Significantly, it was one of the only houses in the neighborhood whose driveway was more or less flat. All up and down the street, we saw people struggling mightily to get their cars up or down steep driveways in the snow, and some people were quite simply stuck. By contrast, it was quite simple to turn off the road and into the driveway

of this house, and the carport kept the cars snow-free during a heavy storm. Additionally, the kitchen was fully equipped with absolutely everything and anything you would need to craft any kind of meal. We can't

recommend this place highly enough!
