~~~ only very rarely 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.

*** 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.

*** 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.

Best rental we have ever had

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 nights at this property as part of a three week trip to California travelling from the U.K. Without a doubt this was the best rental we have ever booked, not just on this trip but on other USA trips in previous years.

The property is superb, located in a lovely quiet area of the park yet convenient to iconic walks such as Taft Point and Glacier Point while only being about a twenty to thirty minute drive to the valley floor.

We were thrilled to have such a wonderful spacious deck area for barbecuing, eating, relaxing and star gazing from. The rental is spacious, immaculately clean, well furnished and exceptionally well equipped.

A real home from home, we had absolutely everything we needed. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need for self catering with thoughtful touches such as an ice box, tea, coffee, olive oil, sauces, condiments etc.

The rental comes with games, guide books and DVDs, additionally we were sent very useful information with regard to Yosemite, trails, eating out etc. a couple of weeks prior to arrival and the 'welcome pack' on arrival was a lovely touch.

My only regret is that we hadn't booked a longer stay, there is so much to do and see and this property makes a delightful home from home from which to do so.

The owners work hard for their many 5* reviews which are entirely justified. We will return and have no hesitation in recommending.

Certainly above all expectation. Wished we had longer.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the dark due to the disaster that is SF car hire!

We were nervous arriving due to the warnings but had no problem finding the property.Driving was horrible however. Would not recommend.

House was spotless and welcoming. Settled in immediately, had late supper and slept like babies.

Our two girls were delighted to have their own beds after ten days of sharing.

Kitchen was great, there was nothing extra we needed.

Suggestions:- some info on local hikes. Feather pillows

Thank-you, wish we lived nearer so could return.

The Sunsets were spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the Sunset House very much. The house was very well stocked and everything was there that we needed, even the Kleenex (thank you very much!) The house was clean and decorated nicely and the convenience of being so close to Yosemite Valley was great (only 25 to 30 minutes). Our only issues were that the towels smelled funny (I think the towels were left overnight in the washer and not dried right away). The 50 plus stairs were a little hard on us 50 year olds, especially when you have to carry 4 full suitcases up to the top or when you've been hiking most of the day and have to crawl back up. Too bad they didn't install a 'dumb waiter' to help with the luggage or heavy items. Another thing that I noticed that all these homes have in common, is that even though the inside is super clean, the outside furniture and deck is not. All the homes that we have rented are covered with spider webs and very dusty. I cleaned off the outside table one night to see how much dust there would be and it was still clean the next day. Also, a bigger kitchen trash can would be nice instead of a small office/bathroom trash container. We had to empty it each morning down in the Valley. I think my husband deserves 5 STARS for scrubbing that barbecue so clean that it looked brand new!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Lisa, for staying with us and taking the time to post your review. We’re glad you enjoyed the Sunset House, its amenities and cleanliness. We love its setting in the forest, under the canopy of the tall conifers and surrounded by flowering dogwoods, but that, of course, comes with the pine needles, pine cones, pollen, and yes, the dust –particularly during the dry summer months. P.S. our second batch of the year of fluffy hotel style towels were delivered this week and the leading-edge organic laundry soap we were trying out didn’t pass our quality test and we have returned to using our old favorite laundry soap. Come back soon for more Yosemite adventures!

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.
