About the Owner

We have lived in Mariposa since 1981. I have two beautiful children. I love to travel and see all the beauty that God has made and he made this beautiful town of Mariposa just a stepping stone to one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Relaxing at the Bear Retreat

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I stayed 2 nights at the clean, spacious apartment in Mariposa, CA while visiting Yosemite in July 2016. It was only a 45 minute ride to Yosemite from there. The apartment was set back in the woods a bit and was quiet. We saw deer and wild turkeys walking in the woods in back of the complex. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, bottled water and K-Cups for the Keurig coffee maker. We went to a local grocery store and bought food and stayed in and cooked our meals. There was a grill right outside the room. It was great just eating in then relaxing after long days of hiking and sight-seeing at Yosemite. We would definitely come back here if we plan to visit again and recommend staying here to anyone coming to Yosemite in the future. Irene, Thank you for your great hospitality.

The property was very convenient and met our needs. The scented air was over powering but other than that everything was great!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while going to Yosemite for 3 days. Upon our arrival, Irene left snacks for us as well as multiple bottles of water in the refrigerator. The accommodations suited our needs and were exceptionally clean and convenient for us. We were just under an hour from the South Entrance to Yosemite and would drive in the park each day. The apartment was spacious and quaint. We greatly enjoyed the laundry facilities on site and took advantage of them to freshen up our hiking clothes. Irene responds very quickly to messages and really shows great pride in her rental. We highly recommend staying here! The only thing we would have liked was recommendations for places to eat - Mariposa is small with a few restaurants and we ate at one place we did not like at all and then one we did. A local's guidance might have helped us avoid the "not as good" places.

Pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin while visiting Yosemite, middle of May. While the location is not very close to Yosemite (it's ~1:10 hours driving, if everything goes smoothly), it was still fine, as the drive is very nice and scenic. On the other side the cabin is located conveniently almost walking distance to a supermarket and other stores.

We were positively surprised how cozy and clean the cabin was and how everything was nicely organized and stocked. Kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed, which was quite important for us, as every day we cooked hot breakfast and big dinner. Irene also provided some free "goodies", which saved us a lot of time the first day, as we did not have to go to supermarket and could leave early in the morning for Yosemite. Thanks for that again! Sleeping was great, as the cabin is far from the main road, so it was absolutely quiet during nights.

Communication with Irene was flawless, she answered our numerous emails almost instantly.

Great location for Yosemite

  • 4 of 5

Great location for a visit to the Yosemite area. The condo is very clean and you are really made to feel at home. Irene left items in the fridge and little gifts for the stay. She also provides a great coffee machine with a variety of coffees. You will not be disappointed and will be amazed at just how much "bear products have been bought and on display in the condo.

The local supermarket is just behind Burger King on the main road. It is also worth dropping in at the visitor information centre (again on the main road) who went out of their way to assist us in our visit to Yosemite. Several local restaurants were also very good.
