Recent Sequoia, Kings Canyon reviews

  • Amazingly beautiful home and wonderful vacation with special friends

    "We have stayed in many vacation homes in the past but this one surpasses them all! It was everything we expected and more. We felt right at home immediately and really enjoyed the patio, pool,beautiful flowers and awesome sunsets. Mary the owner was a very special host-we had homemade cookies and a special gift basket when we arrived. Would definitely like to visit again."

  • Great experience

    "My family and I had a wonderful time at the property. It is equipt with everything you need and a great front porch that is perfect for barbeques. Despite the pleasent rain we got during our second day, we were still able to eat outside thanks to the roof covering the porch. There is a small river area right next to the cabin where my family and even our dog enjoyed to splash in as well. Although Lynn wasn't around during our stay, she was super helpful during the renting process and kept me updated as to any questions I had before the stay. I would definitely recommend this beautiful property to anyone!"

  • Perfect place for our family of five.

    "I have to agree with what others are saying that the photos don't do this place justice. We just got back from a trip to Yellowstone and my wife was commenting on how she loved staying at Starry Oaks when we went to Sequoia NP. Made me realize I needed to write a review and tell Elaine and Kimon how much we enjoyed staying at their place. Thank you, thank you! It was everything we needed and then some. My wife was mentioning how much she enjoyed the walk around your property. We had a great time at the park seeing the beauty of nature and the magnificent trees but it is rare to actually be able to stay at a vacation home and be able to go for a walk on the property and enjoy the beauty of nature there as well. The surrounding beauty of the grounds along with the convenient location, spacious home and all the extras made this a perfect place for our family of five. My wife and three teenage kids were extremely comfortable in this home. Was very nice to have a second bathroom with 3 bedrooms at such a reasonable price. The attention to detail with the Booklet that listed everything in the house and where it was located along with Park information and local attractions was AWESOME. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend, so much better than a hotel or camping."

  • Wonderful escape!

    "This cabin was awesome! My husband, 4-year old son and I enjoyed a wonderful 3 days-we only left the cabin once to go hiking. There was so much to enjoy at the cabin itself and all the amenities couldn't have been better. The heated pool was perfect even in the 60F outside weather. The pool table, fooseball table, board games, DVD collection, kids toys and outside patio with BBQ was more than enough to keep us entertained. Loved the dual shower and the beds were more comfortable than my own. The seclusion was just what we needed with only the sounds of nature outside. We hope to return again later this year!"

Sequoia, Kings Canyon Travel Tips

Year-Round Explorations at Sequoia and Kings Canyon Vacation Rentals

The parks are open all year long to visitors and each season brings its own range of attractions. The vast majority of visitors travel during the summer months of July and August. Be aware if you are planning traveling during peak season that the access roads can sometimes get congested, and the campsites and picnic sites can get very full. This is one of the reasons why staying in a vacation home is a great idea. You can still go exploring and sightseeing by day and in the evening, you can return to your own private cabin. In the spring, the valleys are covered with a mass of colorful wild flowers. The Sequoia trees are sometimes still covered with snow and the rivers are generally swift. Be cautious if going fishing as the currents in the rivers can be very strong.

By June, summer has generally set in with warm sunny days inviting exploration. Enjoy nature trails and guided walks where you can spot birds and other wildlife. Autumn is a great time to visit the parks. Not only are the fall colors magnificent but the park is also generally less crowded. Some of the sites such as the Crystal Cave close in late October so make sure that you travel before then. In the winter months, the region generally receives heavy snowfalls. Some of the campsites remain open and rangers offer guided snowshoe walks through the park. If you enjoy the tranquility of wintertime, this is the season for you to visit.

Visitors to Sequoia and Kings Canyon Cabins

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are two parks that are great to explore with the family. At both parks, you will find information centers where you can arrange guided ranger hikes and attend informative talks and film presentations. There are extensive wildlife viewing opportunities and visitors must be aware of the dangers that larger animals, such as bear, pose. If you are at a picnic site, do not lay the food out in the open as it could attract wild animals. One of the greatest attractions is the General Sherman Tree reported to be the largest single-trunk tree in the world. Nearby is the Giant Forest Museum where you can learn more about the natural habitat of the area. There are also the Crystal Caves which are generally only open during the summer months.
