About Joe Castello
My wife and I met in 1988 while attending college. We married in 1995 and have a beautiful daughter. We really enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, camping, and boating. We live in the Bay Area and bought this as vacation home with the intention of enjoying it with family, friends, and guests.
Joe Castello purchased this House in 2009
Why Joe Castello chose Groveland
I discovered Pine Mountain Lake as a teenager and quickly fell in love with the area. I love Pine Mountain Lake for it's scenic beauty, wildlife, wide range of activities, and close proximity to Yosemite National Park. It is a fantastic place to relax and unwind.
What makes this House unique
There is so much to do at Pine Mountain Lake. The house is located less than a block from the pool and clubhouse which makes for an easy, short walk. You can enjoy a round of golf, take a swim, or play tennis within minutes from the house. The beach and marina are just a short drive from the house. If you are in the mood to visit Yosemite, you will be at the park entrance in less than 30 minutes. Pine Mountain Lake has it all and we know you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Great for kids and families
Great place for families, lots of space. Downstairs game room is great idea, but some of the games are in rough shape. Pics show ping pong, no ping pong. Foozball table is in need of repair as well. Blinds covering doors also need some love.
Overall however the property is very sweet, great place to hang with family and friends!
Thanks for your review. We recently had to remove the ping pong table as a guest broke it. We hope to replace soon and will make sure to update the pictures.
Great home on a nice location in Groveland. It's on a golf course but not directly on it, there are trees in between. The game room is super, the layout of the house is practical and comfortable.
Every time you enter into the community you have to go through the main entrance where there is a security guard. They were very nice and helpful.
We used this as a bases to visit Yosemite, the location was great for this purpose: it's about 30 minutes to the entrance of the park and an other 30 minutes to the valley.
Nice place to stay, close to yosemite
great host, very patient answer and service. Clean and beautiful place to stay!
Familis stay with fun near Yosemite
This is a great house for multiple families to share and kids friendly with fun in the game room. Owner Joe is easy to reach and he is very nice to accommodate my last minute request, thank you so much! The house is safe in a gated community and very quiet neighbors. I am looking forward to come back in the future.
The last homely house east of the Sea
We spent three nights at Groveland, using it for excursions into the Yosemite NP. We found Groveland to be a very good base camp,. Aside from the splendid Mar-Val Supermarket there is a choice of suitable restaurants nearby. The closer you get to the NP, the more compromises you have to make in that respect. In turn you have to take the lengthy drive into account. To the entrance of Yosemite Valley it takes about an hour one way and after our fourth excursion in to the park we became a little tired of all the driving.
The house itself is a comfortable cabin style place with a lot of space for a larger party. We stayed with 4 adults and 5 little children and that worked out quite fine. The Pine Mountain Lake location is in the middle of nature, expect flocks of deer around the house at all times. In our fist night we had a clear sky and I saw the stars and especially the Milky Way as clearly as I hadn't seen them in ages. So it is also a great place to show your children what that candy bar is named after and you might want to bring that telescope that has been sitting in the attic for so long.
Within the house, all the appliances are fit to host a larger than normal group, the downstairs game room seems to be a good plan B for rainy days, which we didn't have fortunately.
What you should not expect is glamour and style. The house has come of age and while functioning perfectly well, it is of course there for the purpose of being rented to guests and subject to the laws of offer and demand. We did get what we expected for our money, Joe Castello was responsive in all transactions and we can definitely recommend the place for future visits.
Relaxing and cozy
We had a good time and the place was very cozy. Kids and adults enjoyed the arcade games.
The house is located inside a beautiful gated community with Golf, Tennis, Swimming, Fishing, Boating, Sailing, and Horse back riding. We are close to the main entrance to Yosemite National Park.
