*** 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!

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

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

-- 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.

*** 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.

Wonderful Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent choice for our Yosemite lodging! It was so nice not to have to fight the crowds around the lodges and it was far enough away from the valley to avoid the crowds as well. It was so peaceful and quiet and so well appointed with everything we needed. Having a kitchen to cook breakfasts and dinners and fix picnic lunches was a life (and money) saver.

The house is comfortable and all the extra touches were much appreciated. It is obvious that Georgeta wants her guests to have a great experience and we certainly did! Her instructions and directions were very thorough and clear. You won't go wrong choosing to stay here.

Spectacular!! It's called Sunset House for a reason

  • 5 of 5

My family thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights at Sunset House. The easy access to Yosemite's valley floor is outstanding for all day activities in the park. We got home to Sunset House just before dark on two of our 3 evenings, and the sunsets were stunning. The third evening, we saw the sunset on Half Dome at Glacier Point (the West Yosemite location of Sunset House can't give any closer access to Glacier Point). The home is very clean and very well equipped for comfort and for cooking in. Georgeta's welcome snacks and wine were a pleasant surprise. Our two kids (12 and 14 years old) enjoyed the games. This was our first VRBO experience, and we were overwhelmingly pleased. The stay at Yosemite West far exceeded anything that we could have had at a local hotel. We would stay here without considering anywhere else if we returned to Yosemite. We would recommend without any reservation.

Excellent place to stay within the Park

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Yosemite SUNSET HOUSE. It was the cleanest and best equipped place we have ever rented anywhere. There was a welcoming bottle of wine, a nice touch, and lots of supplies for everything one might need. We will certainly be back.

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!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a great location to take advantage of hikes starting along Glacier Point Road. The kitchen is well stocked, and the beds are comfortable. We appreciated the welcome basket containing a bottle of wine and snacks. We arrived after spending a few days in San Francisco so the outside stairs seemed trivial to us. We stayed at the house for 2 nights and spent the first evening at Glacier Point so we only experienced one sunset at the house, but it was spectacular. The quiet policy seems extreme, but we did our best to abide by it. If we ever visit Yosemite again, we would try and stay here.
