"I am sure most reviewers have covered most of the details so i will try and keep it concise. This property is in a magical, secluded location - full stop.
But there is wifi! - I didn't even know this till i got there. And a phone, but little else (no cable so if you want to watch a show, bring your laptop and stream). You will get zero cell ph here but all carriers are represented in town a few miles away (Verizon is just now installing a tower i heard).
The house is comfortable for a short stay and while it's certainly not high end at all, you're also not paying high end as you know if you shopped around. I feel the price paid was well worth what we got in return. I think my singular issue was simply the dining room table, which is two fold up tables covered with a large plastic picnic table cover. It's ok, and not that i really cared, but it spoiled the ambiance of what is otherwise a cool 70s decor. Someone could get picky and say the place is outdated but i rather liked it. Some of the fixtures are waaay cool and i know people who would pay money for some of this stuff.
Like i said, other than that, no complaints and if he totally fixed the place up then we'd be paying $325 a night so, i am fine on the decor!
And then, of course, there's the entire reason we all choose this place - it is sitting on one of THE sweetest spots on the river (of all the rivers that flow through this area). We're actually looking for a property to buy up here so we spent two entire days driving around the area and pretty well covered it all and this spot is practically unique.
PS: Best place to eat in town, hands down, is the Ol' Buckaroo. We ate there every meal and it was amazing food and being from LA I've always had a good choice of eateries so u could say ui am spoiled."

"I read all of the reviews after I booked the cabin and was very pleased. There is nothing like getting away from it all. We had four adults (two seniors) and my husband and I took the porch. The evenings were cool and comfortable. I would wake up in the middle of the night and I was surrounded by stars. I want to move in... Vincent and Maya were there when we arrived. Provided a bowl full of oranges for juice and a tremendous short cut to Kings Canyon. This is a place I will definitely visit again."

"The Davidgil house is a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay in a work of art. The home is immaculate and absolutely beautiful. The amount of detail put into the home is mesmerizing and my husband and I would wonder around the house for hours marveling over the artistic detail of the home which the owners built themselves. The property itself is equally gorgeous and my family loved spending time in the huge yard and dangling our feet in the pristine river running through the property. The home had everything one could want or need in a vacation home and the owners are the nicest and most down to earth people. They made us feel right at home. If you want a peaceful retreat this is the spot to be."

defintely a GEM! right on the door step of SEQUOIA national park.
"i am so glad that i found this vacation rental for my son's spring break. we have 2 young kids of 3 and 7 and they cannot hike for a long time. we were able to drive home from the park within 30min. a perfect home away from home feel. after a full morning of exploration / hiking at the park, the kids and adults can all enjoy the pool and the spa. at night we got the fireplace /gas lamp going and enjoyed movies under the stars from the projector, just great!
the owners are very considerate, responsive and hospitable. and so are their staff, very courteous, efficient, paid high attention to details, and tended to our every needs.
we will be back!"
