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 Oakhurst

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 lovely 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.

                                                              This little cabin was so comfy and cozy. It was the perfect little getaway for my husband and I for his birthday. The drive to Yosemite from here was very enjoyable as well. We will definitely book here again!!

                                                              Cozy cute cottage

                                                              We were pleased with Sharon’s cute cottage. It is also close enough to see Bass Lake and of course Yosemite! Also, if you are ona budget and searching for a warm place- this is exactly all you will ever need. It is very clean and to me that is crucial. Small snacks and even oatmeal packets are provided. Small preparations, but there is no stove or oven as stated, but usually when I am on vacation, cooking is NOT a part of my relaxation. It is very quiet and not close to a highway which is super nice. Truly awesome experience and would hope to stay here again when work allows me to :( Thank you Sharon for having us!


                                                              Crystal S.

                                                              Our stay was amazing, my boyfriend doesn't get out of Ventura county much and he loved that we had this little place to ourselves. Coming from a big German family we have stayed in Yosemite many times; this was his first time to the park and the cottage/studio was the perfect place for the two of us to come home to. We will definitely stay again! Thanks so much!!


                                                              Adele G.

                                                              Sharon's cottage was perfect! Clean and better than expected. Excellent location. Thanks Sharon! We will definitely be back.

                                                              Sweet time at the Suite Retreat

                                                              Monica F.

                                                              We had a wonderful time at the Suite Retreat. It was spotless clean. We appreciated the kitchen amenities and the comfortable bed. Sharon was responsive and helpful.

                                                              Cozy, quiet cottage in the middle of Oakhurst

                                                              Robert G.

                                                              As a home-base near Yosemite National Park, this place can't be beat. The property owners are very responsive and are usually nearby, so you won't be trying to reach an 800 number in another time zone. Sure, you'll drive a ways to reach Yosemite Valley, but unless you are staying in the park, the drive is inevitable. Clean, quiet, and comfortable just about sums this great cottage up. If you need fuel, hit El Cid for Mexican, Cool Bean Cafe for Caffeine, and Judy's Donuts for...well...Donuts! (Judy's also has great coffee, unusual for a donut place)
