About the property

Condo, Studio + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Thank you for choosing “Clouds Rest .” If you're looking for the perfect rental accommodation, not into camping and not wanting to spend a lot of money, you have found the perfect place for relaxation and fun. This wonderful mountain condo is impeccably maintained, beautifully decorated and loaded with amenities such as a fully equipped kitchen, gas fireplace, HD satellite TV with a Blu Ray/ DVD player, internet access and a gorgeous view of the forest right outside your window.

Yosemite West is the perfect location for your mountain getaway. We are centrally located inside the gates of Yosemite National Park. Just 30 minutes south of the valley floor, one mile from Glacier Point road and just 6 miles from Badger Pass ski area and 30 minutes (15 miles) from Glacier Point. Even though it's very convenient to most areas of the park, this is still a very remote community and you are likely to see wild animals such as coyotes, deer and maybe even an occasional bear looking for a free meal (they're not dangerous, by the way, but please do NOT feed them!).

You can hike the nearby nature trails or ski at Badger Pass; the cross-country skiing along Glacier Point Road and the trails to the cliffs are spectacular in the extreme! And they are all a short 20 minutes from your front door, even in winter.

No matter how you spend your vacation, you'll come away with lifelong memories to share with your family and friends.

Keywords: This condo can accommodate up to 6 overnight guests.

Book 3 nights between October and March and get the 3rd night free of charge! (excluding holidays)

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time up in Yosemite, snow or no! And yeah, it was mostly no. The condo was great... the only problem was the kids wanted to spend all day in there! It was tough to get them out hiking and enjoying the wonders of Yosemite. They had fun once they finally capitulated and got outside to explore and clamber over rocks, but were always happy to return to the condo after a day of hiking and adventure.We have been staying in Yosemite West off and on for the last 14 years. We try to go to Yosemite once or twice a year and when it is not summer, we like to enjoy warmer lodgings than our tent. We have stayed in other condos in the same facility and yours is by far the cleanest and best maintained condo we have rented. There were great games for the kids, bedding was nice and clean, the bathrooms were very clean, and the kitchen was updated. It made a perfect base for our adventures in Yosemite! B206 will be our go to vacation condo in the future.

Fun time

  • 4 of 5

Looks a little smaller than the photos upon arrival. However, there were 5 of us, and once we were there it was great! The faucet on the 2nd floor had a broken handle for the cold water, we called the helper and left a message and never heard back. My dad left the handle on the counter with a note as this had been missed before according to the guest book there. The loft was perfect for my kid. She loved it. The beds are very comfortable! The kitchen well equipped. Good secluded area. But still close enough to everything! Will definitely want to stay here again. Very clean!

Anniversary trip

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time on our anniversary trip and the condo was amazing! It really was stocked with everything you need! It felt so homey and comfortable so it was very easy to relax after a long day of hiking, ice skating, and snow sledding! The kitchen and bathrooms were a tight fit but it really just added to the "getaway" feel of or trip! I loved reading the guest book and sharing on so many great moments from family vacations to proposals! The condo was very cute and wet have been raving about it to everyone that and about our trip! We highly recommend staying at your condo and we hope to stay again!

Great Yosemite Condo

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our Winter getaway in Yosemite. It is in a great location and Holly was wonderful. There was also a caretaker who was available to help us with questions. The condo was clean and had a lovely fireplace. It was well stocked and even had games and movies. Our only problem was REALLY slow internet which we hated to need on vacation. But they offered to let us go to an office to try to connect and they say they are in the process of upgrading. Overall, the condo is great and the people running it are amazing. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a wonderful time:) I realize that even being on vacation, we all need to be in touch with (the real world) the internet. Being in the mountains, it's been a challenge to get a strong internet signal. The condominium association is currently working on upgrading the Wi-Fi system within the building and should have this accomplished by April or May. Look forward to seeing you in the future!

Best location inside Yosemite National Park - Clean and affordable lodging

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo during our winter vacation after the Christmas weekend. We visit Yosemite at least twice a year and it is always a challenge to find an affordable and clean place to stay. We were very pleased with our stay here as it was clean and well-kept. Most of the units in the condo complexes are pretty old and dated but this place seemed to have been remodeled with great effort. It looks exactly the same as the pictures show. The owner was really helpful as she immediately answered all my questions regarding the property over emails and phone calls. Reservation and payment was quick over the phone with a credit card. It was nice because it was an end unit on the second floor. However, as it is same with all the condos in the area, if you happen to have noisy/loud renters next door, you could hear them. Yosemite West is the best location to stay when you visit Yosemite.

Owner's Response: Hi Heather, I'm so glad you had a nice time with your family in the condo:) I know there are plenty of choices in Yosemite West for accomodations and I use to rent my property through a property management company. The difference is now I can make that extra effort to really make my guests comfortable, the way I like to feel when I travel. Look forward to having you again in the future! Thanks! Holly
