                                                                GinaSan Jose, CA

                                                                Great location up in the mountains, so many hummingbirds and animals roaming the yard it was fantastic and the kids loved it! The kitchen was stocked with the necessary items for a full meal. Hot tub was a nice touch and the pool is plenty big even though it was cold and we didn't use it. The patio with bbq was plenty big for a nice meal outside in the wilderness. Overall it was a great stay!

                                                                Beautiful location with everything you need

                                                                Lindsey P.

                                                                We loved the property - it felt secluded but not too far from stores or Yosemite. It was very spacious with lots of games, books, movies, etc. Always something to do. The hot tub was very nice and we loved to watch the beautiful birds! The hosts even let us check out late since no one was staying the following day. Only downsides were the kitchen was not as well stocked as we’d hoped - bring oil and spices for cooking. There was firewood behind the house but we didn’t find it until later so had already gone to the store to buy some. Overall we really enjoyed our stay!

                                                                Nice Christmas Get Away

                                                                It was large and roomy. Lots of light. There was room to walk our dogs. It was a relaxing place with TV movies and a great kitchen. It was a little bit hard to find the place in the dark but once we got there all went well.

                                                                Wonderful relaxing beautiful cabin

                                                                We truly enjoyed our stay at this cabin. Everything was there for us, beautiful surroundings, very quiet and private, we felt like we were truly left alone to enjoy all of our time in peace and quiet. The beautiful bird feeders all around the cabin made for a very scenic and welcoming morning every day sitting and enjoying our coffee out on the deck.

Kitchen had everything we needed to cook our meals, and the hot tub was awesome, and made for a great way to view the stars at night. Really love this place!

                                                                Ok Stay, But Could've Been Better

                                                                Apparently Keith the owner forgot we reserved the house. Within 20 minutes of our arrival and while we were having lunch outside, he walks in and tells us, 'You don't belong here!'. Not the welcome we expected. After I showed him my confirmation he still seemed surprised and confused. Dirty table outside, no paper towels in kitchen, and carpet in living area in desperate need of cleaning. IMO, not much cleaning by cleaning service is required if guests are asked to strip all beds of linens, run load of towels in washing machine, wipe down kitchen counters, load and run dishwasher, and sanitize hut tub. We attempted to comply anyway but dishwasher would not start and sanitizer tablets for hot tub were not found where instructed on instruction sheet, nor anywhere else inside or out. Contacted owner but received no response. Even left note for him and/or cleaning crew. We are midwesterners and don't have fancy tastes or high expectations but we do expect a clean rental and found this property a bit tired and worn. However, the hot tub was welcoming in the evening after long hikes in Yosemite and the sky full of stars were just amazing - not typically seen in the city we are from.
