vacation rental description

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 pation furniture to lounge in.

traveler reviews for this yosemite house rental

Great place to have a reunion

Review submitted: July 30, 2013   Date of arrival: July 26, 2013

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.

Great stay at Knarly Oaks

Review submitted: July 27, 2013   Date of arrival: July 12, 2013

We had a great time during our stay here with 4 adults and 2 pre-kindergarten age kids. The house is very spacious and the kitchen area worked well for making our own meals. We all enjoyed the pool and spa and spent some time in them each day. The owners were very responsive to my questions before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends traveling to the area and would stay here again on a return trip.

Owners response: We are very grateful for your review. We'll look forward to your next stay with us.
