Property Details

Updated: Sep 17, 2014
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Imagine you, and your family or friends, hiking through the gorgeous wilderness of Yosemite National Park. It's wonderous, beautiful, but HOT. It's late August, September or even October and the temperatures are in the 90's or even in the 100's. When you're done with the wonderous sites, you NEED to cool off. That's were we come in. We have a refreshing and beautiful 2 bedroom and 2 full bathroom, 1500 square foot air conditioned POOL house. It's has a very private pool and spa, with spectacular views, all located within the community of Mariposa, California, about 50 minutes from Yosemite National Park.

The house is on a 5 acre hilltop with awesome 360 degree views of the Mariposa Hills and Sierra Nevada Mountain Ranges, tall pines, knarly oaks, and the lights of the city of Madera and the township of Bootjack. During the day, you might spot deer, squirrels and over 4 dozen species of birds that visit each year. Cool off in the pool after that tough day of hiking in Yosemite. By night relax in the hot tub as you marvel at the stars. We've got everything you need to unwind and relax.

Completely new kitchen, laundry room with energy efficent appliances, forced air heating and AIR CONDITIONING, and dual pane windows. We have completes sets of dishes, glassware, flatware, and cookware. There is a coffee maker and grinder, toaster, rice cooker, and a blender.

The master bedroom is furnished with a King Size bed and high thread-count sheets for your every comfort. Please note the unique locally made manzanita furnishings. There's a High Def TV, HD Dish Receiver and Blue-Ray DVD player .

Second Bedroom is furnished with two twin beds and also has a High Def TV with WII/DVD/Netflix

The Living Room has a 40" High Def, Satellite, and Blue Ray player with a large selection of DVDs, books, games and a foosball table. The sofa bed is a queen size. Two twin size air mattresses, including electric pump, are stored in the large master bedroom closet and there is enough space in the living room if the foosball table is moved to one side. Well stocked firewood is kept for the living room fireplace.

The Dining Room table seats 6 comfortably, and has a great view to the south. Outside there is a swing on the deck to relax and have a cup of coffee or glass of wine, and numerous patio furniture to lounge in.

Great retreat in the hills!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great stay at the Knarly Oaks Pool House with my family and dog. The location can't be beat -- secluded enough so you feel like you have the whole mountaintop to yourself, but still a short drive away from Yosemite, the Gold Country, Mariposa and Oakhurst. All of the amenities worked flawlessly.

Lovely little home on the hilltop with a small pool and really great hot tub. Very clean and comfortable with the convenience of a great utility room and a small office space which was great as my husband had to take some business calls when we were away. Very clean with all the pots, pans and dishes you could ever need and even pool toys for the children and books to read. The birds were amazing and we loved seeing the wild turkey family come to visit every day. We used the fold down but it was not so comfortable. So all in all 9.1/2 out of 10 and we would love to come back. We planned to take our dogs but on this occasion I left them home. If you have small dogs then they would escape through the fence so be prepared to have them on lead all the time while outside with you. Lots of clean sheets, towels and spotless bathrooms.......

We had a wonderful time at the pool house. Beautiful hilltop vista view. Birds, rabbits, deer, wild turkeys, hummingbirds (lots) and deer visited the yard. We were close to Yosemite, had everything we needed, and a pool to keep cool. A return trip must be in our future!

2nd time at the pool house

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed 8 days this July at the pool house with our two kids ages 4 and 6. This was our second trip to this pool house. The property offers all the comforts of a home but away from it all. The house was clean and Keith (owner) checked in with us a couple of times via e-mail to make sure we are comfortable and enjoying our stay. The view is amazing from anywhere on the property, very secluded and peaceful. Just the break we needed from the busy Los-Angeles life. We will definitely return next year. If you are looking for a nature oriented and peaceful vacation we highly recommend the "pool house".

Great place to have a reunion

  • 4 of 5
We had a family reunion which included a couple of days at Knarly Oaks. The property is beautiful and the location is ideal for a visit to Yosemite. There was plenty of room and kitchen facilities for 12 adults. Most of the beds were less than ideal, but the house is clean and spacious. The porch can use some upkeep and there were a lot of bees in the area. On the plus side, there were "extras' that added to the house's charm: a hot tub, gas grill, plenty of linens, TV, books and some movies. The owner worked well with us to make sure our stay was the best possible. Overall it was a very nice experience.
