                        This review is shamefully overdue (I wrote it once but my computer crashed in the middle and I never rewrote it). A friend asked for a recommendation to Yosemite, and I quickly gave them Yosemite Valley View, and that reminded me I needed to do the review. I planned a surprise trip for my husbands 40th bday, and included his parents, and our 2 kids (then 3 and 5). We had the most fabulous time. What a beautiful view -- I looked forward to waking up early every morning just so I could watch the sunrise from the deck, looking at El Capitan and Half Dome in the distance. Incredibly relaxing, close enough to the valley to be convenient but far enough away to escape the crowds. The accomodations were lovely and comfortable; I really enjoyed the kitchen and the large table where we could all eat together. The owners were incredibly organized, had every detailed covered, and made everything about our stay easy. Highly, highly, highly recommend! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Yosemite.

                        Plenty of room and activities for our family of 6 to unwind. Well stocked kitchen, very clean throughout, evenly heated and comfortable on cold nights. Perfect respite from the valley and gateway to parts north and west of Yosemite. Coyotes and deer in the yard was an unexpected treat. Good Verizon 3G extended reception for calls, email, web. Home away from home - with benefits. If you do a google search of "Jennifer Richards art Yosemite" you'll find a painting of the beautiful view from the family room.

                        Sometimes, the best way to rate a property and its owner is when thing doesn't go as plan. I couldn't stay at this property because of park closure due to government shut down. During this period, Jim communicated with me regarding park status and let me know that he would refund my rental fee. We agree on a plan to set a date for my cancellation. I had to move that date up one day because my family changed our vacation plan to anticipate park closure. Jim was flexible enough to accommodate my change. I was hoping that thing would change in the last minute but it didn't happen. I let Jim know about my cancellation before leaving town. When I got back from my road trip, Jim already sent back the full refund of my rental fee. Jim is an outstanding owner and he'll be the first one I contact for my next Yosemite trip.

                        It's difficult to find venues that exceed my expectations, but I honestly can say this one did. Very functional for a large family of 8. The deck was perfect for the morning and evening gatherings. The first night there was magical. The stars were countless with multiple shooting stars. And the evening conditions were perfect. Surprisingly NO mosquitos. Perhaps the dry conditions were responsible. All in all, can't come up with any negatives. Also check out foresta falls on your stay. Find your way to the bottom. Definitely Edenesque.

                        We so enjoyed a wonderful long weekend with our adult children and their friends. Our visit included hikes and sightseeing by day and family meals by night. We all took turns cooking meals and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and staples. The view from the deck while barbecueing was wonderful!! The photographers in the family really enjoyed taking pictures of the wildflowers around the home and scenery from the deck. We couldn't have chosen a better home, with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms we had plenty of space. The kids enjoyed the loft with the nintendo and we all sat around the table at night playing games (great selection). The home is clean, comfortable, well maintained and the owner provides everything you could want or need. We would love to make this an annual visit! Thank you for making our family weekend so memorable!

                        Having stayed in Foresta before, I knew how nice it was. But, this home really added something to the experience. Great amenities, comfortable, well maintained, and very clean. The big front deck with tremendous view of Half Dome and El Capitain cannot be beat. Watched the bats come out each night, listened to chirping birds each morning, watched deer graze from the deck. Easy to get to Valley, Hetch Hetchy, and Tioga Road. Will definitely try to come back - hopefully before I turn 60.

                        The first weekend in November could not have been more perfect in this lovely abode. We woke up to a winter wonderland of snow. The name "Yosemite Valley View" accurately describes the incredible views from this home. This property is exceptionally clean and well maintained, and the kitchen is well stocked. I have already recommended it to several friends. It was easy to be in Yosemite Valley in less than 15 minutes. Thank you!

                        This was our first visit to Yosemite and we were just awed by the beauty of the park. This home added to the delightful experience. It was wonderful to return here after a long and tiring day of exploring and hiking. The view from the gigantic deck is lovely, and we enjoyed every breakfast and dinner outdoors. The 3 bathrooms really made life easy as we had 6 people in total. The kitchen is fully stocked, and the bathrooms had loads of clean towels, wash cloths, etc. The beds were comfy and the bathrooms were sparkling clean. We felt so sorry for the campers who were roughing it with no creature comforts! Also, the owner is very organized and responsive. A real plus when you live on the other side of the country and are planning a special vacation.

                        We were wowed from the first minute in this vacation home. The location insdide the park was convenient but be aware that it is a dirt road with some somewhat large bumps. Our rental car was a Chrysler 300 (which has very low ground clearance) and it rubbed the underside on the bumps but we were able to make it without any other problems. The furniture was older but in good enough condition and it was very comfortable. The view is excellent and it was soooo quiet. After spending the day in the chaos of the crows in the valley, it was an incredible experience to return to this house and spend some time on the large deck. We couldn't hear anything except birds, the wind in the trees and the river in the distance. The kitchen has everything you would want. There was even a few basic spices and some cooking oil. We cooked pork chops the first night and lasagna the second night. There's a TV with a Nintendo 64, a DVD player and a VCR but no TV reception. The TV also has a VGA input that you can use with a laptop but you'll have to bring a VGA cable if you want to do that. We had limited cell phone recepton and no 2G/3G service from Verizon. It was actually kind of nice to unplug for a few days so we weren't really bothered by the lack of TV or internet. My son and I enjoyed the foosball table and dart board downstairs and the bedrooms were very comfortable. Not sure if we'll ever return to Yosemite but this is where I'll stay if we do. I would highly recommed it.
