About the property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1.0 Bathroom, (Sleeps 4)

Planning a romantic getaway to Yosemite? Lucky you! With its stunning vistas and wild beauty, there are few other places that kindle romance quite like Yosemite.

Of course, you’ll want accommodations to match, and our Serenity Suite offers what few places in Yosemite can—a luxury home that’s private and peaceful. Designed as perfect for a couple, it’s the perfect setting to create lasting memories together. Located at 5,500 feet, it provides an escape from high temperatures on the Valley floor in summer and proximity to fun at Badger Pass in the winter.

Located inside the park gate, in the Yosemite West neighborhood, Serenity Suite is approximately 30 minutes from popular attractions, including the Valley floor and its breathtaking waterfalls, Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia Trees. It sure beats driving over two hours from one of the gateway cities!

Serenity Suite is of modern construction, and you can feel the care that went into every detail, including high-end finishes such as handcrafted Shaker-style cabinets and top-notch kitchen appliances. Guests always rave about the quality and comfort of this beautiful home, from the very comfortably outfitted King bed to the large covered deck. We’ve finished the home with marble countertops in the bathroom, granite countertops in the kitchen, and a soothing jetted tub. You’ll be tempted to spend your whole vacation lounging inside!

As you can see in our pictures, the living area and bedroom are connected. In fact, the whole suite boasts an open floor plan and extra high lofted ceilings that both make the space feel much bigger than it is. There are windows all around the main room, so you’ll enjoy plenty of light and incredible views of the woods while relaxing in front of a cozy fire. The dining area seats four, and the spacious kitchen comes fully equipped.

Outside you’ll find a huge covered deck with a barbecue. As from the inside of Serenity Suite, you’ll enjoy forested views all around you when relaxing outside with morning coffee or your evening refreshments. It’s nearly impossible to find this kind of private retreat elsewhere in Yosemite and still stay central to everything.

Serenity Suite is located below our other unit, Royal Retreat. All of your space is separate and private including your parking area, entrance and deck. The entrance to the suite is down an 18-step stairway which is extra wide to make it easy to get luggage in and out. While its perfect for two, it can accommodate some parties of up to 4, with the provided full-sized air mattress and bedding. Recommended for parties with less than 4 adults.

This perfectly situated couples retreat is already booking up for the 2018 season. Contact us today to make your reservation!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for the most magical stay Holly! Only rarely do you find accommodation where the host has truly thought about every little thing for you- wow! From the detailed driving instructions we relied on following in the dark, to the wine upon arrival. The place was perfect- spotlessly clean, super homely, stocked with anything you could possibly need. The location was stellar, tucked away from busy tourist areas and just surrounded by a few family style homes. It was difficult to leave, and we cannot wait to return!

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We had a phenomenal time in Yosemite! The Serenity Suite was definitely a big part of the magic. The suite is incredible, a very cozy environment to come home to after a long day of hiking. We loved the kitchen--all pots, pans and utensils are supplied! Plus, its kept spotless and very well organized. Holly is a dear, very helpful and kind! I would recommend the Serenity Suite to anyone.

Holly's a pro. Left no detail aside. Clean, comfortable, warm, quiet, great bed. Perfect location for visiting Yosemite. Aside from all Holly's great recommendations, don't miss the gem her recommended - Chaunaulna Falls in Wawona! Spectacular. Thank you Holly/Jeff.

Beautiful house, great location, has everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Serenity Suite over Thanksgiving, and we were extremely happy with our stay. The suite was more than big enough for the two of us, and the location was awesome, within easy driving distance of all of the main sights in the park. I already had high expectations from reading other reviews, but I was extremely impressed by the attention to detail in every aspect. From small touches like Thanksgiving-themed decor, to the resources and recommendations for things to do in the park, to the well-stocked kitchen and helpful labels -- there was nothing we needed that the house didn't have. It's clear that Holly and Jeff have put a lot of thought and care into providing an excellent experience for guests. Would highly recommend to others, and hoping to stay there again for future trips to Yosemite!

Holly and Jeff set the standard for vacation rentals

  • 5 of 5

It's so true what everyone says here: Holly and Jeff have thought of everything. They've set the standard so high that I will be comparing all our future vacation rentals to this place. This meticulously appointed studio has all the homey touches that set it apart from sterile, mass market hotel rooms or condos and helped us relax and feel at home. It's beautifully decorated, and the kitchen is well stocked. I appreciated the prompt, friendly, and professional attention that Holly gave to every question and concern I had. If we ever return to Yosemite, we'd stay here again!

Immaculate Studio

  • 4 of 5

I was in close contact with Holly. She gave me terrific advice on a place to stay in Sequoia National Forest for part of our trip. The book of directions that Holly put together was awesome!! There was one hike mentioned as a "favorite" (Dewey Pt) that we couldn't find directions to, so recommend you research and print directions to everything before you go. As one person mentioned, the wifi is spotty, so looking up directions and using "map" feature won't work.

The apartment was immaculate with high end fixtures throughout. The bed was as comfortable as it looks. They really had everything you will need labeled and available. Bring slippers! (and condiments) There is a "no shoe in the studio" rule, so I just wore double socks, but wish I'd have brought slippers. It was really an odd feeling to have no TV, but Holly and Jeff have provided DVDs. We watched a few movies that we hadn't seen before, like Sean Connery 007 when he was much younger, and Casablanca. Thank God they have a land line to use in case of emergencies-- as my daughter had a medical emergency while we were away and we were able to talk her through it.

The only negative was that there was a family in the upstairs apartment, and they had small, very energetic children who literally ran and jumped from one end of the apartment to the other until 9:00 p.m. every night. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at Serenity Suite. Thank you, Holly and Jeff!
