SUNSETS and STARGAZING, right inside the park!

Awesome sunsets and incredibly clear stargazing are frequent pleasures at this property! Avoid the summer heat in the Valley! Avoid the commute to one of the gateway towns by staying inside the park!

-- SLEEPS 2 to 5 guests -- depending on your party's composition this unit can accommodate up to 5 guests in 2 bedrooms incl. all children and babies -- please inquire/email before booking and describe your party, including all children and babies.

-- BED CAPACITY: 5 guests in 2 bedrooms = 2 queen beds plus one twin bed

-- 53 stairs to the top floor that reward you with a gorgeous tree-top view

(take it slow! you'll be at almost 6000 ft. elevation so be aware that you may be short of breath)

-- Driving time to Yosemite Valley, restaurants, grocery store: approx. 25-35 minutes

-- NOT A PARTY HOUSE! -- This unit is part of a duplex property and it's a family oriented property.

-- NIGHT OWLS beware: QUIET HOURS HOUSE RULE: 10PM to 7AM - strongly enforced !

-- NO-SMOKING and NO PETS

-- NO FIRES of any type

-- SMALLER PARTIES (1-2 guests): check out the sister unit: THE RED DOOR Apt. located in the same building and listed on this site -- VRBO Listing #509219

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

*** Living room, dining area 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! (no dark wood paneling here!)

-- Bright vacation home with lots of windows and tree-top views!

-- 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!

-- Close to Badger Pass Ski Area (8 miles)

-- 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!

~~~ peak season minimum stay: 4 nights ~ mid-May to mid-Oct

(except when only 2 or 3 nights are available -- please contact owner)

~~~ holiday periods may require 4 or 5-night stays

~~~ occasionally 1-night stay is OK on a weeknight but never on a weekend -- please inquire

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, very bright, and furnished for comfort, this unit (actually, the main house) offers 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 for winter nights, 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 2-5 guests.

*** WINTER Check-in time: after 4pm and before 9pm

*** SUMMER Check-in time: after 5pm and before 9pm

*** Check out time: by 11am

INTERNET and CELL PHONES: due to the mountainous region and our unique and heavily forested location, we haven't been able to access any satellite signals at this time. Cell phones in Yosemite have very spotty reception, if any at all, except for the Yosemite Valley area -- a cell signal booster we just installed may provide limited connectivity (mostly for Verizon) but consider yourself ** disconnected ** while you are staying at this property.

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

-------

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

*** WINTER Season and TIRE CHAINS ***

Tire chains may be required by the park during the winter months. Call us for more details.

*** TIOGA PASS (Hwy 120) closes early each winter due to snow - please check before planning your traveling route.

_______________________

*** 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!

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.

We were VERY happy with Sunset House. Quiet, clean, spacious and plenty of supplies. Great kitchen amenities. It was relaxing to return to a secluded home at the end of each day. The owner provided clear information before our trip, including answering all of our questions with patience! and there was information provided at the home as well. Great location! It was apparent the owner has given much effort and thought into making guests feel comfortable.

We have recommended this property to our friends!

Wonderful Yosemite Home

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented The Yosemite Sunset house and found it to be everything we read about. The house was clean and comfortable. It had wonderful tree top views. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset our first night along with a nice bottle of wine...gift from the owners. We were greeted by a total of 7 deer while we were there. The kitchen had everything we needed. It was peaceful and quiet...just what we needed after being on the valley floor each day. We look forward to renting this property again.

Better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

The property is even nicer in person than it looks in the pictures! We had plenty of space and everything we could possibly need for our stay. Georgeta provided a wealth of information that was so helpful for planning our whole trip itinerary. I'm hoping I'll get to visit again in the future, and will certainly recommend this property to any friends visiting Yosemite.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (ages 12 and 17) stayed at the Sunset house for about a week. We had an amazing time! The house itself is beautiful with all the amenities you'd ever want and gorgeous views from the living room and deck. The location is also perfect -- within 20-30 minutes from badger pass, the valley, and Wawona. Highly recommended. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Recently had the pleasure of staying at the Sunset house. What a fantastic rental!! It was perfect for my young family of 4 (children ages 3.5 & 6). Aside from convenient location (roughly 20-25 minutes drive to valley and Glacier point), We felt very happy to return to our lovely vacation rental after full days in the park. Everything you could need was there (even a very thoughtful care package with some wine and treats for our anniversary). Very clean, very comfortable, and well appointed for cooking, relaxing, and sleeping. Plenty of great DVDs and even a chest full of toys for our young ones. Highly recommend if you can manage the stairs, which was not issue at all for our family. Thanks again for such a great stay!!
