*** Forest Setting - Beautiful Sunsets - Glorious Starry Night Skies ***
*** Very clean unit, furnished for comfort, with a bright atmosphere; ideal for 2 guests. Dine on your own deck surrounded by forest! Tree-top views and long vistas out to the horizon!
*** Location is in Yosemite West, a small development of private residences, at 5700 feet elevation!
NOTE: The apartment is part of a duplex property; because this is a lower unit, you will hear footsteps and other sounds of occupancy coming from the unit above, please expect this. Soundproofing has been applied to address this matter.

-- SO MUCH MORE THAN A MOUNTAIN CABIN!
-- INSIDE the Entrance Gates of Yosemite! Avoid long waiting lines at the gates during peak season.
-- Only 12 miles to Yosemite Valley, 7 miles to Badger Pass, 16 miles to Glacier Point, 20 miles to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias
-- Avoid commuting in and out of the park ... this location is through the gates and INSIDE the park -- (unlike those labeled **near** Yosemite, or **close to Yosemite** such as in Groveland, Mariposa, El Portal, Fish Camp, etc.)

-- Away from the Summer Crowds!

-- Treetop Views: there are 38 stairs from the parking area to the mid-level floor where treetop views and glorious sunsets await you! Stargazing at its best!

-- IMPORTANT NOTE: At this time, VRBO's new automated quote system does not allow for accurate quotes for children. Our pricing is structured for both adults and children, and the system only quotes using the number of adults. If you entered 2 adults and 2 children in your reservation request VRBO will calculate rental cost for only the 2 adults -- a manual adjustment is needed to reflect the rental cost for your entire group. VRBO is working to fix this issue.

Yosemite's splendors are within easy driving distance: the three most popular visitors' destination areas within the park are: Yosemite Valley floor, spectacular Glacier Point and Wawona and the Giant Redwoods - each less than a 25 to 30 minute drive from the house!

This private residence was built in 1999 to take full advantage of the unobstructed westerly views ... No neighbors in sight when you look out towards the western horizon and nothing between you and glorious sunsets and millions of stars.

-- Clean, bright, and furnished for comfort, this unit offers that special feeling of home-away-from-home.

*** THE RED DOOR Apt *** (on the mid-level floor): one of the two units at this property, is a one bedroom/one bath unit (575 sq. ft.) plus a 375 sq. ft. deck. It has lots of windows, long views to the Western horizon as well as forest views everywhere else. A gas fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, bath with shower over tub, and a sunny deck with plenty of deck furniture and a gas grill for BBQ's. Sleeps 1-3 guests (queen size bed in bedroom plus futon sofa in the living room for 3rd guest)

*** WINTER: TIRE CHAINS are required by the park during the winter months. The following is a quote of the statement posted on the park's website: 'Carry tire chains in your car and be prepared to use them (even if you have four-wheel drive): chains may become mandatory at any time.' The Yosemite Red Door apt. is accessed by a steep road and winter snows may require special driving skills. Please email or call with any questions about the use of tire chains.

*** There is no Cell service for most carriers, and no TV or internet, as this is a remote mountain location. A land-line telephone with local service is included and you may use your calling card.
*** 5-nights stays include use of the laundry appliances.
*** Guests must be able to climb several flights of stairs to access the 2 units in this property.
*** Please note: you are sharing the common spaces with our larger rental unit -- shared areas are the parking area and outside stairway.

*** Traveling to CARMEL/MONTEREY area? Let us recommend a new studio listing #399908 -- ideal for one couple, a small space w/ stylish decor, reasonable rates, pet friendly, and located in the heart of the Carmel Woods area, in Carmel.
_______________________

*** OUR GUESTS: Our vacation home has been enjoyed by couples on their honeymoon, many anniversaries, several 'I'll be asking her hand' events, and many book lovers, romantic stargazers, painters and photographers.

*** Activities in the park are many: fishing, hiking, rock climbing, biking, birdwatching and much more. More active folks can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, river rafting, and horseback riding to name a few.

*** This is a place away from the crowded Yosemite Valley floor, a place for evening relaxation: sit back and enjoy the wind whispering through the cedars, pines and dogwoods; stargazers can marvel at the clear night skies with millions of stars while listening to the sounds of the forest from the deck!

Yosemite offers world-famous scenic views and a variety of activities for everyone, year around. A few examples of the many organized activities offered are: free art classes (watercolor, sketching & drawing, etc.), morning photography walks, a Valley Birdwalk, special programs designed for families and children, and so much more.

******************
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RATE QUOTES on the VRBO/Homeaway platform:
VRBO/Homeaway has a major bug in their new rate calculation system adopt in late 2013. They have no way to define what is considered a child and nor whether or not children get charged. With exception of one baby under 12 months old, we count all persons in your party, regardless of age, as paying guests.

FOR AN ACCURATE RATE QUOTE please enter the total number in your party in the 'adults' count, and add some notes about the nature of your group.
*****************
*** Enjoy Yosemite's beauty and the conveniences offered by a vacation house inside the park ... you won't leave disappointed!
