About Kevin Smith

Yosemite and The Big Island are our favorite places in the world. Our family of seven has had many great memories from hikes in Yosemite, swimming and BBQ’s at the main marina at Pine Mountain Lake to kayaking with the dolphins in Kona. These places have allowed us to spend quality time as a family, which is most important to us. Our vacation rental properties have all the amenities to make you feel at home. Our hope is that our hospitality makes you feel welcome and will allow you to create your own special memories.

Smith Pine Mountain Lake home is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We had a week long family reunion in this home with 12 adults and 4 kids. It accommodated us really well and we appreciated all of the amenities that came with it. The home itself is very well equipped with linens, comfortable beds, huge couch with huge t.v. and very complete kitchen. The bbq on the deck was great for us and the soaking tub and steam shower in the master bath were a real treat! The Pine Mountain Lake community was fantastic. The house is a 3 minute drive to the main marina and swim beach with fun activities for everyone. There was so much to do that we didn't get around to it all! Yosemite is an easy hour away with many other points of interest nearby as well. We couldn't have asked for a better a location or accommodations! The owner, Kevin was extremely helpful and always responded to emails very promptly with answers to all of our questions. The information about the property was very complete and the instructions for access and everything else were easy to follow and our security deposit was returned very promptly. This place is a great deal with so much to offer!

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

Everything are good,it is half hours to west enterance of Yosemite park. There are enough utensil to use kitchen. We have 14 person, 8 adult and 5 child. Room is enough to rest. If washer can be fixed before we arrive and canoe lock can be open, it is better. And canoe is not at place as instruction,I found out under ranger's instructing, however, I tried to unlock in two afternoon, eventually i have no chance to use it.I think there are some trouble on that lock.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our property as we take what our guests have to say as very important. We were able to get a new washing machine in the day after you left. Unfortunately, the closest location is Sonora and they only make trips to Groveland 2 days a weeks because of the distance. I confirmed that the canoe is the position listed with our information. I had my cleaner confirmed that the master combination lock is work with the code listed with our information as well. Sorry that you were unable to use our canoe while visiting Pine Mountain Lake. Kevin & Cindy

The house was nice, clean and well layed out for a large group.

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the property. There were, however, a few things that were less than stellar. First, the promised canoe was not at the dock so we weren't able to enjoy the lake as much as we wanted. Second, tho advertised as sleeping 16, there were only beds available for 11. Our 12th person wound up sleeping on a couch. Third, there was no bath soap in any of the bathrooms. Shampoo but no soap. Very odd! Finally, supplied toilet paper in 2 of the bathrooms was 1-ply. Really?!?!? Fairly minor annoyances but did cast some pall on the week.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathryn, I am glad you generally had a good time. I am sorry that you could not find the canoe. After your stay, I checked for it and it was exactly in the same place that it should be. It could be that you looked on the opposite side of the lake. Our canoe is in the lake area behind the snack shack (not in front of the snack shack) and is clearly labeled. Our place sleeps 16 including all 5 rooms, the sofa sleeper in the living room, and the futon in the loft. We always include shampoo and liquid soap so we will check with our housecleaner to make sure she is not missing that. We purchase 2 ply toilet paper from Costco. Perhaps the prior guests purchased 1 ply and our housecleaner did not replace it. We will be sure to ask our housecleaner to verify the ply of toilet paper in the future. This is not something that ever came up before, but good to know to keep an eye out for this in the future. We appreciate your feedback. We take pride in our home and want to make sure our guests always feel comfortable.

Clean Comfortable Spacious Beautiful Scenic

  • 5 of 5

We had 16 of my family enjoy our stay here. We wanted a place close to visit Yosemite. Everything worked out great. The roads were open for us except once during a storm.

The decks outside are big, maybe 10 x 20. You can't tell the size of the rooms in the house by the pictures, but they were big enough for are group. (If people were in the pictures of the home, maybe that would give a better perspective of the size.) On the website is a picture of the kitchen. Look above in that picture and you see part of the railing for the loft. All 16 of us posed for a picture standing by the loft railing and over looking the living room/kitchen. We were all able to fit up there and take a picture.

We made full use of the kitchen to make meals and had everything we needed.

Everyone in our group was happy with this place. I would rent again and recommend to anyone. The first one to get there said, "Wow, this place is nice!"
