Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Hello, we are a family from southern California (and Germany) and we exclusively stay in vacation rentals on our travels. We like the personal touch each owner gives to their place and usually enjoy a much cleaner environment than most hotels can offer. We also love getting up and make our own breakfast, without having to get ready for the day first, allowing for each family member to finally sleep at their own pace on vacation. Having the choice to go out for any meal and entertainment, or simply staying 'home' adds to the freedom, enjoyment and especially important these days, savings. We take pride that all of our own vacation rentals are equipped with everything necessary to enjoy a comfortable stay and things we usually miss in other vacation rentals. These include simple things like coffee, tea, paper towls, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, towls, linens... We hope you enjoy your home away from home as much as we do, in Los Angeles, or Yosemite/Bass Lake! Cheers, Lars, Sunday & Ean

Why the Owner Chose Oakhurst:
We just love the perfect location of this property. Only minutes away from town with all the amenities and fantastic restaurants, as well as minutes from Bass Lake water sports and some of the best hiking in, what we consider the most beautiful national park in the US. The wonderful neighbors and friendly people in general plus ABSOLUTE quiet in the middle of beautiful nature views, allows us to completely relax - or stay busy for weeks.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This vacation house is our largest and our master piece. This gem offers everything for couples, friends, families with children, or entire family reunions that need a comfortable, yet luxurious place to get away. A fully equipped kitchen, allowing for Thanksgiving, or Christmas meals with the whole family. Gas and charcol BBQ on a beautiful, iron wood deck with views of nature, and city lights and stars that seem like diamonds in a black velet sky on most nights. All materials used are top quality, luxury items, from the hardwood floors, italian travertine bathrooms to the jacuzzi bathtubs. The game room, video games and usually the kid's downstairs-getaway is sure to be enjoyed by the entire family. We hope you will enjoy this place as much as we, and many guests before you have.
