Mariposa house description

Imagine you, and your family or friends, hiking through the gorgeous wilderness of Yosemite National Park. It's wonderous, beautiful, but HOT. It's late August, September or even October and the temperatures are in the 90's or even in the 100's. When you're done with the wonderous sites, you NEED to cool off. That's were we come in. We have a refreshing and beautiful 2 bedroom and 2 full bathroom, 1500 square foot air conditioned POOL house. It's has a very private pool and spa, with spectacular views, all located within the community of Mariposa, California, about 50 minutes from Yosemite National Park.

The house is on a 5 acre hilltop with awesome 360 degree views of the Mariposa Hills and Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges, tall pines, knarly oaks, and the lights of the city of Madera and the township of Bootjack. During the day, you might spot deer, squirrels and over 4 dozen species of birds that visit each year. Cool off in the pool after that tough day of hiking in Yosemite. By night relax in the hot tub as you marvel at the stars. We've got everything you need to unwind and relax.

Completely new kitchen, laundry room with energy efficient appliances, forced air heating and AIR CONDITIONING, and dual pane windows. We have completes sets of dishes, glassware, flatware, and cookware. There is a coffee maker and grinder, toaster, rice cooker, and a blender.

The master bedroom is furnished with a King Size bed and high thread-count sheets for your every comfort. Please note the unique locally made manzanita furnishings. There's a High Def TV, HD Dish Receiver, and Blue-Ray DVD player.

Second Bedroom is furnished with two twin beds and also has a High Def TV and Netflix/DVD player.

The Living Room has a 40' High Def, Satellite, and WII player with a large selection of DVDs, books and games. The sofa bed is a queen size. Two twin size air mattresses, including electric pump, are stored in the large master bedroom closet. Well stocked firewood is kept for the living room fireplace.

The Dining Room table seats 6 comfortably, and has a great view to the south. Outside there is a swing on the deck to relax and have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, and numerous patio furniture to lounge in.
