  • Great Family Fun

    "First time to Sequoia National Park with the family and wanted to make sure to have plenty of things to do aside from hiking. Could not have found a better home base than Hafuma Ranch. The kids were up on their own at 7AM (not an easy task with junior high boys) and exhausted by 10PM. The on-site activities were a perfect fit for a family of boys...fishing on a private pond, archery, sport court, pool table, pool, jacuzzi, bbq...the list goes on. Was an hour drive to the entrance of Sequoia, and another 45min from there to the Valley of the Giant sequoias. Look forward to returning, will visit closer locations like Balch park, so we can spend more time at the ranch."

  • Excellent experience

    "I recently (January 2015) spent a weekend at the River Villa to celebrate my 30th birthday with several friends. From the first inquiry to our final exchange, the property manager, Robin, was an absolute pleasure to deal with. I had a couple of last minute cancellations/additions to my guest list that I was worried might complicate the booking process but Robin made the entire process as simple and painless as possible. Once we arrived we saw that she also left a nice welcome note with a home baked loaf of bread which we enjoyed with our dinner the first night. The cabin itself is as advertised: 3 queen bedrooms on the ground floor and the large loft upstairs. The loft was definitely decorated with a kids' space in mind which makes this a perfect family vacation rental, but the large living area and patio/yard works just as well for a group of adults/buddies looking for a getaway. There are large windows on all sides in the living room (as well as double sliding glass doors) which gives the cabin plenty of natural light during the day and a great view of the night sky without having to leave the warmth of the fire. The area just outside the living room is amazing and we ended up spending most of our time at the cabin here. The river is literally right outside with about 30 ft of space filled with seating, bbqs and horseshoes in between it and the sliding doors. The views of the mountains during the day and the countless stars at night kept us coming back outside even when it got colder at night. If you are planning on going into Sequoia National Park I can't imagine you can stay much closer. We made it to the entrance in less than 5 minutes (although it is worth noting that it is still 30 minutes - an hour from the park entrance to all of the big trees/waterfalls/etc). The only caveat I have is that the property was advertised as being on 14 acres which led me to assume it was completely private. There are neighbors adjacent to the cabin as well as across the river that seem to be quite a bit closer than 14 acres. I'm willing to bet that there are indeed 14 acres on the plot of land, but the cabin isn't right in the middle of that 14 acres which is what I had imagined. With all of that said though, the property still provides an ample amount of privacy and private access to the river which I'm sure would be even more exciting in warmer months. All in all, we had a great experience and plan to return hopefully sooner than later."

  • What a great place to stay. Enjoyed every minute.

    "This property exceeded our expectations. The owners were very responsible to all our questions and very easy to work with. Kim is the local caretaker who stop by to make sure everything was in order. The unit was impressively clean and stocked with everything we needed. The view was amazing and we really enjoyed our stay. The drive to the location is an adventure with all the switchbacks. We always made sure we will back "home" home in the light of day. It was our first experience with a "swamp cooler" instead of a traditional AC unit and it worked out great. I would stay again and I would recommend the unit. I would consider it a short drive to the entrance of the King Canyon portion of the two National parks."
