Why Jim chose Yosemite Area

This property has been in my family since the mid 1970s. After the A-Rock fire in 1990 destroyed the original house we were amazed to discover that we suddenly had views of both El Capitan and Half Dome.

When we rebuilt in 2006 great care was taken in the design and placement of the house to take maximum advantage of the view.

What makes this house unique

It is extremely rare to be able to stay in a private home within a national park with such spectacular views. There are only a handful of homes in the entire park with such a view.

Just Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of seven from Australia and arrived at Jim's home and our expectorations far exceeded what we imagined. This house is just amazing and set in one of the most majestic part of the world. It has everything you could need and just felt like a home away from home. I truly could write so much about this home but I would run out of space. Jim was always quick to respond to any questions I had and especially booking from the other side of the world when all you can go by is reviews. Thank you Jim for opening your lovely house so others can enjoy this special place. I will definately be recommending this house to my family and friends back home.

Early October Stay

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we hoped for. Clean, well appointed, and the view of Half Dome and El Capitan was spectacular. This home accommodated seven adults easily and comfortably. The deck was large and spacious. Everything worked and what we didn't bring the house came stocked with. I definitely recommend this house.

Amazing Yosemite Valley View

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 absolutely loved this place!! Amazing views from the deck, very close to various Yosemite spots, well-stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and a relaxing place to hang out after a day of hiking/sight-seeing, make this home perfect!! The deck was awesome for both day-time viewing of Half Dome and El Capitan and the stars at night. I would definitely recommend it!

Clean, comfortable, fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

The Valley View house is exactly as advertised. It was clean and comfortable from the first minute we arrived and remained so throughout the week. I especially enjoyed having my morning coffee on the deck while watching the sun rise over El Cap each day. The deck is also great for star-gazing at night. It's a perfect location for getting to the sights in the park - only 20 min. to Tuolomne Grove, 30 min. to the valley, less than an hour to Hetch-Hetchy. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again or to recommend this wonderful vacation home to anyone.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfectly located, spacious, clean, well presented and well equipped with clear guidance and instructions. The owner is very accomodating and responsive to queries. I would recommend this property to any of my friends and family. The games room is fabulous and the views are outstanding. The rooms are all lovely. We had a family of 8 adults in the property all of whom thoroughly enjoyed the stay. It was half hour away from Yosemite village, which also made it a very suitable location.

In the woods, secluded and private. Amazing view of both El Capitan and Half Dome from the deck. Creek with swimming hole nearby. Hike to a waterfall about a mile away.

Please note Foresta is inside the park and only a few minutes from the valley. To ensure you have the experience you expect, always ask about exact location of Yosemite rentals. Other homes listed under 'Yosemite National Park' can be up to a one hour drive away.
