Why Owner chose El Portal
I built this home in 2007. I live in Yosemite 6 months out of the year and enjoy climbing and hiking. I find it to be one of the most beautiful places in the world. My home in Yosemite West is located at about 5500' making the temperatures in the summer very pleasant.

Overall great house
The house worked very well for my family of four. The house is very clean with everything you need for several days at Yosemite.
A beautiful, clean, quiet place to stay :)
While I wasn't here a whole lot during my stay, the time that I was here was wonderful. The heat works quite well, the fire is nice, furniture comfortable, kitchen is well stocked and the bathtub is great for soaking. Numerous fans are provided, including those on the ceilings. Internet was decent, considering the location. Not a big TV, no cable, but that's not what you're really there for anyhow, right? Surprisingly nice sound system though considering the small television size. They've got the full Friends series if you somehow need to binge watch something in the middle of Yosemite. :D
Have a pleasant stay!
some issues, but owner took responsibility to ensure good experience
The overall house is great and just like the pictures show. We did have some issues with the internet, a leak from the bathroom, and the oven, but the owner took responsibility to take care of the problems to ensure overall we were satisfied. Hopefully future visitors won't have to worry about those as the owner is trying to fix them.
It was so great!!
A beautiful home!
Clean, spacious, comfy, well equipped, ideally located
Great to get the family together. The house has at the same time a nice living space, where you can cook, eat and relax around the fireplace, and very nice private rooms. Beth was very responsive and attentive to our needs
Will happily be back
