Big House that requires a good house keeper for great vacation experience
Pros: -The house is big and can accommodate 8 people easily if they are willing to share a bed. It has 2 bath rooms a nice size family room and decent furniture. Cons: -It is 1 hour 20 minutes drive from the house to the Yosemite Park entrance when there is no traffic. We also drove on a weekend and there was decent amount of traffic and it took us 1 hour 50 minutes to get to the park entrance. -The house doesn't have a microwave. -House keeper never returned our call during our 2 days visit despite leaving several voice messages to address the issues that we encountered. This was very annoying. - It is a 20 - 25 minutes drive to drop off the trash to a local store. -The oven had rotten food in it from previous guests. We could not open the oven to throw the rotten stuff that was stinking the kitchen. The solar lights on the stairs don't work and at night those rough and steep stairs are not easy to walk on, in the absence of light. The stairs are not kids and senior citizens friendly. Patio and the outside furniture was super dirty and we couldn't enjoy sitting outside. There is no sign for the house address and the house is hidden behind an over sized garage that you will see after you take the ramp. For us it was a nightmare as we could not find the house for 15 minutes and we ended up asking for help from a neighbor to direct us where this house is. He mentioned that the signs were taken-off because some trees were taken down. Plan on getting to the house before it gets dark because it will be difficult to find this house at night in the absence of any signage for the property and the way it is located. The stove in the kitchen is dated and there are no exhaust fans in the bathrooms. No curtain in one room and other rooms have sheer curtains. If you don't like sun light early in the morning, bring something to cover the windows. The comforters from the washer were not taken out and it was stinky in the laundry room. The decor is not kids friendly. little one's can easily reach several items and can break them and hurt themselves easily. Bring high chair with you or be prepared to feed them on your lap. If you don't mind driving 1 and half hour to get to the park and have a large family, this would be a good house to stay. However, it is a shame that there are several things that need attention in this house. I would NOT recommend a friend or family to stay here.
