IMPORTANT NOTE: If you are traveling with CHILDREN, please read the note at the bottom of this page about problems with the VRBO/Homeaway quote tool.

**********************

SUNSETS and STARGAZING inside the park:

Awesome sunsets and incredibly clear stargazing are frequent pleasures at this property!

-- SLEEPS 4 guests -- occasionally we can accommodate 5 guests incl. all children depending on your party's composition -- please inquire/email before booking and describe your party, including all children and their ages.

-- NOT A PARTY HOUSE! -- This is a family oriented property -- QUIET TIMES house rule: 10PM to 7AM.

-- SMALLER PARTIES (1-3 guests): check out the sister unit: THE RED DOOR Apt. located in the same building and listed on this site -- VRBO Listing #509219

**********************

 *** Check-in time: after 4pm

 *** Check out time: by 10:30am

*** Forest Setting - Beautiful Sunsets - Glorious Starry Night Skies ***

*** Living room and kitchen are the heart of this house and provide an open and bright atmosphere. Large deck surrounded by forest! Tree-top views and long vistas out to the horizon!

-- SO MUCH MORE THAN A MOUNTAIN CABIN!

-- INSIDE the Entrance Gates of Yosemite! Avoid long waiting lines at the gates during peak season.

-- Only 12 miles to Yosemite Valley, 7 miles to Badger Pass, 16 miles to Glacier Point, 20 miles to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias

-- No 100 degree heat in summer ... like lodgings found at lower elevations.

-- Avoid commuting in and out of the park ... this location is through the gates and miles INSIDE the park -- (unlike those labeled **near** Yosemite, or **close to Yosemite** such as in Groveland, Mariposa, El Portal, Fish Camp, etc.)

-- Away from the Summer Crowds!

-- Treetop Views and Stairs: there are 53 stairs from the parking area to the top floor where treetop views and glorious sunsets await you! Stargazing at its best!

-- Please note that you are sharing the common spaces with The RED DOOR apt. rental unit (shared areas are parking area and outside stairway)

Yosemite's splendors are within easy driving distance: the three most popular visitors' destination areas within the park are: Yosemite Valley floor, spectacular Glacier Point and Wawona and the Giant Redwoods - each less than a 25 to 35 minutes drive from the house!

This private residence was built to take full advantage of the unobstructed westerly views ... No neighbors in sight when you look out towards the western horizon and nothing between you and glorious sunsets and millions of stars.

-- Clean, bright, and furnished for comfort, this unit (actually, the main house) has that special feeling of home-away-from-home.

*** THE SUNSET HOUSE *** (on the top floor): one of the two units at this property, has two bedrooms/1.5 baths, this is a large unit ( 1350 sq. ft.) with a 575 sq. ft. deck. The living room is spacious, bright-with lots of windows, long views to the Western horizon, as well as forest views everywhere else. A fireplace, jetted tub in the bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and a very large deck with plenty of deck furniture with a gas grill for BBQ's. Sleeps 4-6 guests

!!! IMPORTANT NOTE:

At this time, VRBO's new automated quote system does not allow for accurate quotes for children. Our pricing is structured for both adults and children, and the system only quotes using the number of adults. If you entered 3 adults and 2 children in your reservation request VRBO will calculate rental cost for only the 3 adults -- a manual adjustment is needed to reflect the rental cost for your entire group. VRBO is working to fix this issue.

CAUTION: WINTER TRAVEL thru the park requires all cars/trucks/SUVs to carry snow chains (aka tire chains). The Yosemite Sunset House is accessed by a steep road and winter snows may require special driving skills. Please email or call with any questions about the use of tire chains.

-- For more information about our accommodations, availability, rates, policies, guest comments, photo album, links and more, please visit our website.

*** Guests must be able to climb several flights of stairs to access the 2 units in this property.

*** Traveling to CARMEL/MONTEREY area? Let us recommend a new studio listing #399908 -- ideal for one couple, a small space w/ stylish decor, reasonable rates, pet friendly, and located in the heart of the Carmel Woods area, in Carmel.

_______________________

*** OUR GUESTS: Our vacation home has been enjoyed by couples on their honeymoon, many anniversaries, several 'I'll be asking her hand' events, and many book lovers, romantic stargazers, painters and photographers.

*** Activities in the park are many: fishing, hiking, rock climbing, biking, birdwatching and much more. More active folks can enjoy skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ice skating, river rafting, and horseback riding to name a few.

*** This is a place away from the crowded Yosemite Valley floor, a place for evening relaxation: sit back and enjoy the wind whispering through the cedars, pines and dogwoods; stargazers can marvel at the clear night skies with millions of stars while listening to the sounds of the forest from the large decks!

Yosemite offers world-famous vistas and a variety of activities for everyone, year around - A few examples of the many organized activities offered are: free art classes (watercolor, sketching & drawing, etc.), morning photography walks, a Valley Birdwalk, and special programs designed for families and children.

*** Enjoy Yosemite's beauty and the conveniences offered by a vacation house inside the park ... you won't leave disappointed!

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT RATE QUOTES on the VRBO/Homeaway platform:

VRBO/Homeaway has a major bug in their new rate calculation system adopt in late 2013. They have no way to define what is considered a child and nor whether or not children get charged. With exception of one baby under 12 months old, we count all persons in your party, regardless of age, as paying guests.

FOR AN ACCURATE RATE QUOTE please enter the total number in your party in the 'adults' count, and add some notes about the nature of your group.

Keywords: Vacation House, Cabin inside Yosemite, Yosemite Lodging, Yosemite Rental House, Cabins, Yosemite hotels, rentals, park, cabin, national, rent, inside, near, homes, accommodations, lodge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to thank you so much for the incredible adventure we had and for the fantastic sunset house as our "base camp" in Yosemite.



We just had the most incredible time!



We will DEFINITELY be back! I will send you some pictures when I get time, we saw an incredible deer right outside the house one morning eating the grass!! You must add it to the site!

We also saw a coyote in Yosemite West. We loved the house and for a family it was great. Thanks so much and you'll hear from us again!

The Sunset house is perfect to visit Yosemite instead
of being in a hotel. The house is perfectly equipped
with evetything you could need, it is very clean and
comfortable. It is also in a very convenient location to
visit the valley and the south part of the park.The park
is awesome, we would love to go back again.

Can't say enough nice things about this house!

Can't say enough nice things about this house!
  • 5 out of 5
From the start Georgeta was a pleasure to work with to plan our trip to Yosemite NP. The attention to detail when she sends you the helpful information right before your visit is like none other I've ever received. The house was exactly as described and did not disappoint! It was very clean and roomy for our family of 5, and we were so glad to be able to come back to it after a long day in the park. Knowing that we did not have to drive outside of the park to get "home" was a HUGE benefit! Restaurant options are limited within the park, so we were glad to be able to eat in for b'fast and dinner and pack picnics for lunches. The star gazing at night was one of our favorite activities. Who needs internet and TV when you have that? We also saw the Mama bear and 2 cubs in the neighborhood. Although they were very cute from a distance on our deck, we were glad the restrictions for garbage were so strict. The Yosemite Sunset House was the perfect place to stay while visiting such a beautiful national park. Many thanks to Georgeta for her help to make this one of the best trips we have ever taken!

Owner's Response: Wow ... you were so lucky to see a MAMA BEAR and her cubs from the deck -a safe distance- ... what a treat!
We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed the cabin and its location and thank you for your kind words that so eloquently describe the advantages of staying INSIDE the park.
There is a lot more to see and do in Yosemite and we welcome you back in the future! Best wishes!

Our Great Yosemite Trip!

  • 4 out of 5
My family and I went to Yosemite last week - and rather than stay at an overpriced / underserviced hotel or campground in the valley, we found this great place and enjoyed two fantastic nights. The location, inside the park, was perfect - saved us lots of time from heading out of the park each day. We brought our own food and enjoyed barbecues and dinners on the deck each night. The house was clean, easy to find, and very close to the road leading up to Glacier Point. We're looking forward to another trip back to the park in the winter and/or spring to see the different seasons!

Beautiful and the Location cannot be beat!!

  • 5 out of 5
We were so happy when we pulled up. It is beautiful and just as described. We immediately felt welcome. The sunsets are not to be missed. The interior is inviting and very roomy. It is very clean and tidy (the shoe area is a great idea). The owners was very friendly and efficient. After a long day of hiking and sight seeing it was a joy to come back to Sunset house and relax. We loved being able to get up, get ready and head out to Yosemite and already BE in the park. Huge huge benefit. We loved every minute of it and we have recommended it to friends already.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the Yosemite Sunset House and for taking the time to write this review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed the property -- its location can't be beat and beautiful sunsets just add that extra bonus. The mudroom is a practical feature that comes in handy during the snowy times; here, shoes and boots have their dedicated space!
Thanks again for your recommendations to your friends - we very much appreciate it. Happy Travels!

Peaceful, clean, spacious, and close to everything.

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful base camp for our adventures in Yosemite NP. The house is wonderful - spacious, clean, well stocked. We enjoyed our evenings on the deck watching the sunset and the starts. Coffee on the deck every morning was also a treat. The house is close to all the hikes we wanted to do in the park but far enough from the crowds in Yosemite valley for peace and quiet at night. We hope to be back to Yosemite to explore even more of the park and would book this beautiful home again immediately! Thanks for a wonderful stay and the use of your lovely home.

Owner's Response: Hi Gladys, thank you for choosing the Yosemite Sunset House and for taking the time to post a review. We are very glad to learn that you enjoyed your stay … coffee on the deck, sunset views, the sea of tree-tops all the way to the horizon … the zillions of stars at night … and the peace and quiet … these are the same things our family enjoys when we stay there. Come back soon!
