The grocery story is minutes away to supply all of your cooking needs. Our great room accommodates families with dining space for 12 and a bonus room where the kids can gather for ping pong or movies, while the adults relax by the fireplace.

Just added in January 2017 and Brand New is a 6 person spa!! This Sundance hot tub is just outside our Northwest facing patio door with easy access in and out and very private for your comfort.

The Juniper Ridge house has a Large Master Suite with double vanity, clawfoot tub, shower, king bed, walk-in closet, and additional closet. Guest Bath has double vanity and a shower. The Great Room is an open 700 square feet with a large dining table for 8, 2 full sofas, flat screen TV, and additional breakfast table that seats 4 more. Bonus room has 2 sofas, ping-pong table, 55 inch flat screen TV, and 2 sliding glass doors exiting to the backyard. Spacious kitchen, lots of counter space, with modern amenities.

About Matthew Marcis

Hello! We are the Marcis Family -- Kim, Matthew and 3 kids under the age of 8 (Lyell, Whitney, and Dana). We live and work in El Portal (just East of Mariposa). Kim is from Palo Alto and I was raised in Wheaton, IL. We met skiing in the Yosemite wilderness in 2005 and we love spending time outdoors with our family. I enjoy taking Kim down the Merced River on the white water during good Spring run-offs. We are thrilled that you will make Mariposa and Yosemite your next vacation and we are happy to give you some insider tips about exploring the area.

Matthew Marcis purchased this house in 2014

Why Matthew Marcis chose Mariposa

We bought this house in 2014 and immediately saw the potential for our family and sharing it with other families of all types. It is on a flat 2 acres just one mile from downtown Mariposa. It is a one-story modern, ranch style house with 3000 square feet! We love Historic Mariposa due to the in-town amenities, friendly people, and pleasant weather. It is ADA friendly with a 4 foot wide walnut front door and a wheel chair ramp in the back.

What makes this house unique

There is a twenty-five foot wide wall of windows in the Great Room that faces north west that has the most stunning views and sunsets and it's a private view with only 2 houses well out of range! We have a 6+ person hot tub! The house is designed to maximize group space as well as large, private rooms. We hope you will enjoy the house, the proximity to town, and the gorgeous drive to Yosemite National Park!

From the minute we arrived, we knew it would be a great vacation. The house was immaculate - cleaned to the baseboards. Cleanliness is a requirement, but the fun of the open layout, the large rooms, the sumptuous bedding (especially the memory foam master bed), and the great fun with ping pong and hot tub - this was a perfect property. Only 45 minutes to beautiful Yosemite landmarks and we enjoyed every minute. Highly recommended from a frequent VRBO'er. Great property...period.

Great for large groups! The house is perfectly set up with lots of room!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The house is very spacious and very clean. The owner is extremely accommodating we had great communication ! Communication was key with trip seeing it was during the Ferguson Fire. We were unable to go into Yosemite like we had originally planned but found things to do in Mariposa and the nearby cities. We are excited to plan another trip!

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much. Large, clean, beautiful and well cared for. Plenty of room for all, parking a bit tight for more than 4 cars, but that's a lot! Cannot think of a thing that was a drawback, ro a downer. Rent it and you'l be pleased!

A Truly Enjoyable Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short stay at the house during our weekend visit to Yosemite. The house was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Also, all of the supplies and amenities we needed were available for us to prepare meals at home and unwind. The kids especially enjoyed the ping pong table and available blocks and games. In addition, a wildfire started outside of Yosemite the night before we planned to visit the park. Matthew notified us that night to let us know and recommended we take an alternate route into Yosemite Valley, which saved us a lot of time the next day. We truly appreciated the care and attention paid to us and to the house. We look forward to returning when we next visit Yosemite Thank you Matthew!

We had a very nice stay at this property. The owner was very cooperative and informative. Everything we needed for a wonderful stay was right there. Mariposa is a great little town with cute shops and other stores to fulfill all of our needs. We will certainly look to stay here next time we’re planning a trip to Yosemite!
