  • Beautiful, quiet, ideal (with only a few notations)

    "Crystal Cove delivers! This place is pretty much exactly as stated and was a beautiful, lush, well-appointed place where we stayed for five nights. It's beautiful inside and out, clean and pretty much has any amenity you could want. I can only hope to have a home like this sometime in the future. I do not have *real* complaints at all (hence the five stars) but I'd like to outline a few things you might want to consider, or at least know about ahead of time. These may or may not be issues for everyone -- so again, grain of salt time: INSIDE 1) In case you aren't totally clear when you book, this is the bottom part of a home in which the landlords are resident. They are not noisy; however, you will hear them walking above you and occasionally speaking. They are not up late, but if noise is a factor just consider this. 2) There is a refrigerator but it is much smaller than a typical one in a home. If you buy groceries be prepared that not all may fit. 3) Internet is terrific. It carries well outside and all the way down to the "island." 4) There's a wonderful cross-breeze you can get inside if you open the door next to the bed and the front door. We hardly needed the A/C at all. 5) There's a terrific selection of DVDs available. Some books. 6) No hairdryer. (Or at least I didn't find one.) 7) Toilet paper is of low-grade; if you're sensitive, bring your own. No tissues. OUTSIDE 1) While we had minimal issue with bugs, there were some mosquitoes. Down by the end of the island a large bush contains "meat bees" (aka yellowjackets). We were not stung, but they are curious buggers and are there pretty much all the time. 2) The water level is lovely for wading and sitting in with a book -- just rest against the rocks! But don't expect to go dunking or swimming; either it's always like this or the drought has lowered the river. Bring river shoes if you want to do a little exploring. The flumes on either side of the island are just above trickles. (Again, this may be due to the ongoing drought, and is subject to change.) 3) Grill works on propane and works fine. 4) Area is almost 100% quiet (other than the river water) but on weekends you may hear parties/people on the other side making noise. Again, not an issue if you're not noise-sensitive. BEYOND 1) We were told it gets very busy on the weekends up in the Sequoia/mountains areas, so weekdays are best. True! 2) If you want actual swimming in the river, try Slick Rock. Thank you for this!"

  • IF YOU ARE READING THIS, LUCKY YOU ARE INDEED.

    "I'm at not one to just hand over a secret spot, so this is difficult for me. I think everyone should have to do their own do diligence to find such amazing places as this, like I did. I have had this place saved on my phone for the last 6 years before I was finally able to go. So on that note, this destination, this cottage is going to be the most incredible place you are ever going to find. That is if you like nature, seclusion, quite, and really good people. Go experience this place, you will not be disappointed. You will look at things differently when you are done. James, thank you for being so kind to my boys and my wife; for showing us the sequoia log (my favorite part of the trip) and how to get around the property. The cottage was perfect; great library, really enjoyed reading about the 1867 flood that put that sequoia on those rocks, like it was meant to be. Incredible! I'm jealous. I look forward to coming out again soon. Travis, Kathy, Logan and Gavin"

  • Memorable Family Vacation and Wedding Anniversary

    "Sequoia Alta Vista is a beautiful home. Our family stayed here on a vacation to see the Sequoia/King's Canyon NP and it was also my wife and I's wedding anniversary. The house is very clean and stocked with everything you need. The views from everywhere in the house were amazing. I'm an early-bird so I was able to enjoy every sunrise with a cup of coffee on the back deck. We would spend the day in the parks and make it back for supper and a sunset swim. Our two teenage daughters loved swimming and seeing the Sierra mountains in the distance. Thank you, Gary and Mary, for making our family vacation and wedding anniversary memorable"

  • Oasis near Sequoia

    "We loved this house. After traveling for several days, our family of four was able to spread out. With three bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, it was perfect. The pool and hot tub area was magnificent, and we opted to skip one day of hiking just to relax poolside instead! It was easy to get food to cook from the nearby village market. Highly recommend."
