Heavenly *****
First things first – stop reading this review and book this house. OK, now that you’ve done that here’s why it’s a great decision. It’s a beautiful, interesting house - complete with nooks for reading, a porch for sleeping, a hide-away bedroom, intricate tile work and amazing craftsmanship. The setting is incredible – right next to the Kaweah River, with a firepit ready for your evening bonfire, a gazebo for relaxing or toasting your day at Sequoia, wildlife to keep you watching outside including a family of quail and a very friendly western scrub jay who will eat out of your hand.

The upper house has 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. (please note they are open to renting the home and just the king size bedroom to parties of two, two bedrooms for four, etc ) The master bedroom opens onto a screened in sleeping porch. The kitchen is very, very well equipped and stocked with spices and a few staples to get you started. Downstairs is a large, self-contained unit with living area, kitchenette, full bath with shower. Comfortable beds and lots of linens make life easy.

The house is a just few miles to the entrance of Sequoia National Park and is a perfect location for exploring this beautiful natural resource. We were torn between hiking in the park and lying in the hammock next to the river at this lovely house.

There are two grills (charcoal for the purists and gas for the convenience-minded) so head to Three Rivers to the Village Market with an excellent butcher in the back. Prices are high as you would expect of the only store for miles but they had what we needed for our stay.

Cara and Eric are gracious, helpful, communicative hosts. We were 3 generations and Eric provided a croquet set, paddle ball and even bubbles for the kids.

Trying to be helpful here – there are lots of stairs and the river really is right there rushing by with quite a current. If you have young kids and don’t want to be vigilant this may not be your house. Otherwise, book now.

HOLIDAYS***** 4 night minimum on holidays only
Sleeps 2 downstairs (King Bed)
Sleeps 6 upstairs (King bed, Queen bed, Double bed)

***River bed only available for $50 per nights of booking and only with complete house reservation, weather permitting;

August 2017 has only 6 full house days availability.

Enjoy elegance, natural beauty, and wilderness surroundings with all the amenities of an up-scale sophisticated rental that provides comfort, relaxation, peace, and romance. It will quickly become your favorite get-away located in the foothills below Sequoia and Kings National Park. It is ideally situated to accommodate day excursions for site seeing adventures, but the grounds and accommodations at the DaVidgil House are a destination in themselves. One can sun bathe on the edge of the river, dine under the stars, build a fire on the sand in fall, winter or early spring, and walk among the sycamores; listen and see hawks and quail, and every now and then catch sight of the heron going up or down river. There is an an abundance of wildlife.

The DavidGil House is a spacious 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house with exquisite views, and all the comforts of home; a lovely home for an extended familiy and /or friends, surrounded with walkways, outside dining areas, gardens, and just a few paces farther, a deck overlooking the South Fork River. There is an optional lower artist's studio with a king size bed, kitchenette, bathroom and separate entrance that sleeps 2, (please inquiry).

Often times, the wayfarer can see wild ducks, deer, mountain lions, bears, bob cats, possums, skunks, snakes, squirrels, to name just a few, and the insect life is teaming with energy. The DaVidgil House is located approximately 5 miles from Lake Kaweah, 8.6 miles from the Entrance to Sequoia National Park (which is home to the world's largest living things - Giant Sequoia Redwood Trees), 197 miles north of Santa Monica, West L.A., 265 miles south of San Francisco, and less than 200 miles east of the Pacific coast. In other words, centrally located for your vacation needs.

Note: Animals do not live here but a cat does visit.

Only nice people need apply!!!!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2016

About the owner: We are new owners but proudly own this home that was built by an artist, designer, woodworker, the daughter of a building contractor; and an environmental scientist, artisan builder, and the son of a water/civil engineer. With eyes for detail, an artistic bent, and the love of nature, DaVidgil House is well appointed, luxurious, and unlike anything else. We have always loved Three Rivers since early in our relationship being just over three hours from Santa Monica where we live most of the time. Its unique gorgeousness, its playful rivers, majestic trees and small town atmosphere is a perfect balance to city-life.

Why the Owner Chose Three Rivers, CA, USA:
This property has a perfect location nestled in the Canyon with the South Fork River running right through it. The wild life is abundant and the natural surroundings majestic and gorgeous.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The benefit of staying at the DaVidgil House is not only the luxurious ambiance, but how centrally located it is, in as far as it is conveniently close to town, Sequoia National Park, Lake Kaweah, and numerous other sites while remaining remote and peaceful in its location. It's on its own river front, it's close to the highway but off far enough for seclusion, it's only minutes to everything you have come to the area for including the only full service market, and numerous eating establishments.
