                                                              Very clean and comforting place

                                                              Beautiful place!!! Definitely would come again

                                                              Great place to stay

                                                              Ashwini S.

                                                              This is a very nice and cozy home. It was quick to get on 120 towards Yosemite from the location of this place. The house has everything you need and perfect getaway.

                                                              The Gate House

                                                              Muriel L.United States

                                                              We rented the Gate House with our good friends for my birthday. The Gate House was very clean and comfortable. This gated community has a beach and a lot to offer families. We had dinner at the Iron Door Saloon, the food was good and the atmosphere was fun, we went to Yosemite, which is 1/2 hour to the gate entrance. Bring your patience lots of traffic and people. Even those we were among the other million people we really enjoyed ourselves. Again we had a very nice stay and would absolutely return and refer our friends.

                                                              Very nice and cosy

                                                              Rona S.

                                                              Spent 3 nights in the house. So clean, cosy and comfortable. The landlord is online whenever we need them. Recommend highly!

                                                              Cosy family house perfect for visiting Yosemite.

                                                              Tania G.

                                                              We had a lovely stay at this cosy villa in Pine Mountain Lake, Groveland. It was clean, spacious and just perfect for our family of six. The house comes with all the amenities and a well-equipped kitchen.

                                                              It is located 30 minutes from the entrance to Yosemite NP; another 30 minutes to Yosemite Valley.

                                                              We only stayed a couple of nights, nowhere nearly enough to explore Yosemite! PML is also a beautiful area, with plenty of activities to keep everyone busy.

                                                              Great property - the house is decent and clean and roomy enough for our family of 7.

                                                              Traci R.

                                                              Nice property. Not the quietest (on the deck - inside I didn't notice a thing) as it sits right by the main entrance. Home is spacious and clean. Suited our purposes (for a family of 7) perfectly! No toaster or measuring spoons/cups (had just about everything else though! ;)

                                                              Not as close to the marina as I had hoped (20 minute walk) but we did enjoy the marina quite a bit - kids loved it! Swimming, kayaking, tour boat, etc. Great location.
