About Esmé McCarthy
We have lived and worked in the area for nearly ten years. Raising our children here has been amazing and adventuresome. There is so much to see and do and we have been fortunate to be able to soak up the beauty of Yosemite and the Sierras every day. We love it here and can't wait to share it with you.

Nice home while visiting Yosemite
Very nice and comfortable home. Great location for trips to Yosemite.
Quick family trip
We are very impressed with this home. My parents had never been to Yosemite and this was the perfect place to stay. Property was very clean, accommodations more than expected, and close proximity to the park is very convenient. Wildlife is literally at the front door, several does just relaxing in front of the house making this an amazing experience for young and old. We would definitely rent this home again!
We really enjoyed our stay. Very relaxing, clean, and really didn’t have to worry about things. Our son really enjoyed running up and down the hill in the back yard. Loved watching the Deer walk through the property. It was an easy drive to Yosemite and close enough to town if you had to run and get something. We would definitely stay here again.
Great location, everything we needed!
The house was great! The location is quite close to the South entrance of Yosemite. The owner was very helpful with info on snow chain requirements and local availability (and return policies) and other local info. This was very needed with our colder than avg May temps! The house is comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. Travelling with kids, I appreciated the easy decor and lack of knick knacks. Laundry machines were in home, which made it easy to freshen up hiking layers mid-trip.
Thank you Sarah! We hope to see you again on your next trip to the area.
