"We were very excited when we decided to go explore Yosemite and the surrounding area. When we found the Vinyard View home, we were very happy with all that it had to offer on the advertisement. We were at first scared of the 45 minute drive to the valley, but decided that this home had all that we wanted in a house and we would deal with the ride.
When, we first arrived at the property, we couldn't believe our eyes. This little cottage had its own gated private driveway and is literally set in a dreamlike setting of lilacs, oaks, daffodils, and other trees on 7 gorgeous acres.
My 6 year old daughter and our giant Schnoodle had the best time of their lives, exploring, running and playing. Inside of the house was also lovely, the huge Windows's gave a beautiful view of the fron and back yard. The decorations, were great, and I truly felt as comfortable as I was at my own home. Kirsty has thought of everything, the house has it all: from adult to children's books, toys, strollers, baby monitor, shopping bags, spices, extra food, all kinds of cooking utensils and pots ( slow-cooker, blender ,food processor).
The area was breathtaking, we looked forward to driving around, and the 45 minute drive to Yosemite felt more like 25 since we were busy looking at the beauty that surrounded us.
The best treat was watching from the windows of our house as the deer came to munch on the grass in the front yard. They came quite often and were pretty tolerant as we ventured outside to take pictures of them a few times.
Overall an unforgettable experience, we will defiantly be back to the Vinyard view home."
