Oakhurst cabin description

Thank you for looking at Casa Rio in the town of Oakhurst, we are the premier vacation rental in the Yosemite/High Sierras area!

Casa Rio is situated right off Highway 41, sits on approximately 9 acres with river frontage, and is 3000 square feet. The home is 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, with a large great room, media room, and a deck that overlooks the river and town of Oakhurst.

Casa Rio will sleep as many as 13 people in the home comfortably! We have the best accomodations and space for large parties in Oakhurst. Casa Rio's entrance is on Highway 41 and so access to the home is easy and convenient for everyone. The home is approximately 5 minutes away from the heart of the town, 10 minutes to Bass Lake, and we are 20 minutes away from the South Entrance of Yosemite. Our location gives everyone the best experience of Yosemite while having access to modern amenities such as grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, & a movie theater!!

Our home is unique that it owns the land that the river runs throughout the year. Approximately 800 feet of river is free for you and your party to roam and explore - the river is private to Casa Rio so it is all yours to enjoy during your stay! Casa Rio is contemporary in style and amenities for everyone to be comfortable. The kitchen boasts stainless steel double oven, range, refrigerator, microwave, and even the sink! The kitchen is equipped with all the utensils to make a meal for your party! The latest addition to the property is the back deck - completed in May 2010 received great feedback last year! It is now twice the size of the original deck and has great views of the river cascading down granite rocks and cool views of the city and sunset!

The best experience other people have with Casa Rio is the river itself! It's private and has a great access to the granite pools that you can swim at your own caution! Guests have raved about having a 'piece' of Yosemite to themselves!! The river is a perfect place to take pictures and remember your stay in Casa Rio!! And with 9 acres around you there are plenty of space for everyone to explore and enjoy the grounds!

There are 3 bedrooms, 1 den, and 2 bathrooms in Casa Rio. The den occupies our bunk beds which accomodate 7 people with their own flat screen TV w/ a DVD player. The den is right off the Master Bedroom and has it's own bathroom with a view of the river!! The remaining bedrooms are downstairs that share the common bathroom.

It has been our experience that we provide the best space and environment for large and small groups that want a lot of room! Once you stay at Casa Rio and visit Yosemite National Park, you'll feel blessed that you experienced the mountains while having the convenience of a contemporary home and access to modern amenities we all need: grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and entertainment!! Please call or e-mail us and we would be happy to setup your stay in our beautiful home!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I love the outdoors and everything it has to offer! I have been exploring the area the last several years with my Border Collies and have enjoyed everything inside AND outside the park. I can make suggestions on places to visit depending on your interest around the area just let us know!

                      Why the Owner Chose Oakhurst:
                      The location of the home is within driving distance to the town of Oakhurst & the South Entrance to Yosemite National Park. It's also one of the few home properties that have direct access Highway 41 so it's easy to get in and out of the home. One unique feature of the home is (and probably least known) is that our acreage includes the river itself which means that 20 feet across the river still belongs to us. The river cannot be trespassed because it's what I consider a 'private river'

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                      One of the great benefits of the home is the constant sound of the river. It is absolute peace because I can have the music or have as much noise as possible and not hear anyone else around us or vice versa. There are plenty of places to hike around the property whether it be along the river or by the hill side. The Great Room is probably the best place in the home because you just get a little piece of everything from the view of the river from the living area to the scenic views of Deadwood Mountain from the dining area and kitchen while being around everyone else.
