About the property

Beautifully remodeled chalet with king, queen and day bed. A/C, HD TV & Internet

The Yosemite Paradise Chalet is the perfect getaway for Yosemite Park. After nine months of renovations that completed in January 2015, everything is new, fresh and clean. The Chalet is a private home in a unique community INSIDE the gates of Yosemite Park with easy access to the Park attractions. It is located near the Glacier Point road and HWY 41, the main road in the park.

This is a beautiful 2-story home with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, loft, 2 decks, a full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, fresh paint and new furniture.

The kitchen is equipped with all the major appliances, dinnerware and organic supplies you will need for a quick snack or gourmet meal. We have stocked organic fair-trade coffee and teas and over 30 organic spices, in addition to a large microwave, quiet dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, blender, stand mixer, food processor, slow cooker, fine cutlery, 5-burner gas stove with custom griddle, convection oven and a large refrigerator with in-door ice and chilled water dispensers. A reverse osmosis water filter and LED lighting complete this luxury vacation home.

The Chalet has full house air conditioning, remote control heating, Dish HD TV and satellite internet. We have stocked the home with games, books and park information. The covered rear deck is tucked away in the back to provide you a quiet and private place to relax and enjoy the birds, animals and forest views. The front deck is large with chairs, tables and special lounge chairs for children. A gas barbecue is provided for your grilling pleasure.

The bedrooms are furnished with quality mattresses, linens and plenty of storage. There are remote controls for AC, heat, ceiling fans and even a heated bed cover for your personal comfort.

There is a king bed with day bed and full closet in the main floor bedroom. The 2nd floor bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, dresser and windows with forest views.

Each bathroom is stocked with organic soap, shampoo and conditioner, and has a Jacuzzi jetted tub to help you relax after a long day of hiking and exploring the wonders of Yosemite.

The Chalet is finished with eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, a modern color palette, scenic artwork, LED lighting with dimmers, new windows with forest views and new mahogany doors throughout the home. All the furnishing are new and designer quality.

This is the perfect getaway for two couples, a small family or friends in search of a new Yosemite adventure.

About Jeff and Melissa

We are a young family with two beautiful girls who love to explore the wonders of Yosemite. I work long days in the medical research field, my wife is busy with the girls and we split our time between San Jose and Yosemite.

Jeff and Melissa purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Jeff and Melissa chose Yosemite

We had explored Yosemite Park for years before finding the Chalet in 2014. The house was a diamond in the rough. After a year of extensive remodeling we have created our dream vacation home that we are proud to share with travelers to the Park.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalet is a private home on a large lot in Yosemite West. This special community is located inside the gates of the Park at 6000' elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

We're the perfect location to base your exploration of Yosemite. It's 25 minutes north to Yosemite Valley, 25 minutes east to Glacier Point, 15 minutes to Badger Pass and 25 minutes south to Wawona. The three main attractions of Yosemite are easy and scenic drives from the Chalet.

We are one of the few properties to have air conditioning to help beat the summer heat.

What a gem this home is! I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone. It's obvious the owners and caretakers are very thoughtful about the comfort of their guests. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything from cutting boards to cutlery to toddler dishes to foil to spices. Definitely the best kitchen of any home we've rented - making Thanksgiving dinner here was a joy. And there are many other touches like heating pads for the beds, plenty of fresh towels and soaps, and even a charming souvenir coffee cup for us to take home. The location is great. It is quite high up though, so tire chains, etc are a must in the winter months. We would also recommend that guests stock up on groceries before entering Yosemite. Some of the restaurants are closed for the winter season, and, while nice, Yosemite Village most likely does not have everything you might like to have.

A cosy & welcoming get-away in Yosemite

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place for 2 couples. Warm & intimate setting. Well stocked kitchen, comfortable beds & linens. Ideally situated for travels in the park.Very happy with our choice. A few comments for future occupants, bring your own wine glasses since there are none, can use extra dish towels, there are 2 for your use, and I prefer placemats or a tablecloth on the dinner table when eating and there is none provided. Luckily we had one in our picnic backpack. A note to the owners, please change the "couch", it's awful. I think it's a futon for additional sleeping but it's very uncomfortable for 2 adults to sit & watch TV plus there is no additional seating (except using the dining table chairs) for anyone else to view the TV. Perhaps 2 small club chairs & a large love seat. There are love seats that have a pullout air mattress that are quite comfortable. All in all, we loved our stay & thank you for everything. BTW, the management couple responds immediately to requests or problems.The house is well maintained & organized. We stayed for 4 days leaving on the fifth. Did a lot of hiking in the park. If it's being offered, don't miss the star gazing at night. Buy tickets at the Visitors Center in Yosemite Village. Bring binoculars & wear warm clothes & bring a blanket or two. Excellent!

The perfect place, Can the Futon!

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Yosemite was incredible. The views are amazing, I have never experienced so many moments where I had to say “are we really here”!! Tho the winding roads in Yosemite are disturbing. There are no guard rails to stop you from driving off the cliff!!

The property we rented was just about perfect. You want for nothing in the kitchen it was better stocked than mine. They supply you with everything from spices to pots and pans of all sizes. Baking items, coffee maker, water boiler for tea or cocoa. All kinds of gadgets!! Tinfoil, plastic wrap and everything is labeled in the kitchen, in fact, there are label’s everywhere! It’s well organized and clean. My only complaint is to get rid of the futon it very uncomfortable and only seats two with no other lounging furniture. I would put in a comfy couch as you have two bedrooms and sleeps 4 nicely, but at night when you want to relax, you can’t. All in all I would definitely come back to this Property!! I hope you don’t mind the constructive criticism of the futon!

Wonderful Yosemite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were three adults and the house was perfect for us. It was nice to be centrally located inside the park, minutes from glacier point and just a short ride to the valley floor. The house was nicely appointed and wonderfully clean. We cooked every night and the kitchen had everything we could had hoped for and more. We have already told our friends about this lovely retreat.
