About Sharon Brantley

I'm a REALTOR with Keller Williams Realty. I have been licensed since 1998. I love real estate! My partner Mike calls himself the 'technician' and is a master at all trades. He manages all the handyman and property maintenance required on this property.

Sharon Brantley purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Sharon Brantley chose Yosemite Area

This was a property Mike and myself purchased for retirement however, we found ourselves here sooner than we expected. We had the cottage rented for years to a full time tenant. After the tenant moved away we were using the cottage for ourselves, friends and family when my good friend Kirsty Lebovitz owner of 'SierraScape' Vacation Rentals suggested that we turn the cottage into a vacation rental for two. So, I decided to do it. Thank you, Kirsty!

This is a fantastic location and convenient to Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake, lots of restaurants and less than 2 minutes from Oakhurst's town amenities yet we are nestled on 3 beautiful acres.

What makes this cottage unique

We are an alternative to a hotel/motel, renting a full size home and of course camping! We are NOT a remote mountain property. On our shared 3 acres we have several separate living quarters all unique and loaded with character. They are all separate from each other with each having their own yards and driveways. We also have a retired Morgan horse on the property who loves to have our guests come say hello and give her a carrot or two.

Cozy cottage for two

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was super cute and tidy, centrally located in the town near the entrance of Yosemite. Great for day trips to explore the park but still close enough to restaurants and shops if you fancy. Well stocked place with coffee, tea, and even little snacks which was a nice touch. The owners definitely make the effort to make you feel at home. Would certainly recommend! :)

Perfect Get Away Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

This one room studio bungalow greatly exceeded our expectations. It was very nice, neat , and clean. It was well stocked with towels and toiletries. The property was immaculately kept inside and out. It was our own private hideaway. The owners were friendly and made themselves available in case we had any problems. We had none. We were there for a couple of days hiking in Yosemite. We plan to return and will definitely rent this place again.

Cute and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

Great experience. Sharon was very helpful. Unfortunately, the stove had been removed due to insurance/liability issues, but I was not cooking anyway. Sharon made an accommodation on price. Microwave and fridge were all I needed.

Nice Relaxing Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here after our trip to Yosemite. We headed over to Bass lake for the day, which is about a 10 minute drive. The location is easy to get to, nice and quiet. It was very clean and relaxing.
