“WOW! Perfect place to stay when visiting Yosemite National Park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

My husband, daughter and I stayed in Tom & Theresa's beautiful lower apartment for a 3 day trip to Yosemite. It was the perfect place!! The pictures do not do the place justice; it is VERY nice and spacious for 2 or 3 people. The unit is spotlessly clean, comfortable and an excellent location to see all parts of the park. After a day of exploring various parts of Yosemite it was so nice to come "home" to such a great place. We were so happy we chose to stay inside the park avoiding long lines in the morning entering the park and even happier we chose to stay at Alpine Escape. Do yourself a favor and stay at Alpine Escape and explore the beauty of Yosemite.

“Yosemite in style”

If you want to escape the tourist crush, staying in Yosemite West is the way to do it. It's not the cheapest option, but after a long day of exploring there's nothing quite like retreating to such a nice, genuine neighbourhood.
The apartment is huge for 2 people, and would be nice and homely for 4. Aside from internet access, cable tv (there's a dvd player and around 30 good dvds) and a fully stocked pantry it has everything you'll need, including laundry facilities. It was so nice we felt a little guilty having spent so much time exploring the park.
Tom was lovely and the apartment was immaculately clean and directions to the property and check-in were easy. Definitely money well spent.

This is a very comfortable and very well maintained vacation rental. We enjoyed very much our stay there with kids. Tom has been helpful to make sure we had a pleasant, stress-free arrival and stay, with careful instructions on directions (typical GPS is not precise) and was very flexible to accommodate out check-in time. Will come back in the future!

Stayed three nights in this lovely place. Great communication with Tom, the owner, before we got there and had a friendly welcome once we arrived.

The place was immaculately clean and had everything you needed plus a lovely bottle of wine and frozen cookies.

DVD library for viewing and no Internet available so made for a very peaceful stay.

Gas BBQ available too.

Best advice we got from Tom was to leave early in the morning to miss the crowds so we got to Mariposa grove just after 7 am and basically had the place to ourselves plus got parked. It was lovely.

Thanks guys,

I can never emphasize enough that getting up and out early in Yosemite pays big dividends.

Next time we'll trade you guided hiking for chainsaw work ;-)

(these guests were a forester and carpenter with, among other things, a great knowledge of trees and saws).

This place was very up to date with modern amenities. Very homey and comfortable. No television service, but a lot of DVD's available to watch. Unit was stocked with maps and books of information about the park. Loved it. Would recommend to everyone.

“Great Place to Stay - 30 Minutes to Main Attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The house is just as pictured. New and Clean. Kitchen has everything you need to cook. Washer and Dryer is helpful. 30 minutes to Mariposa Grove, Glacier Point and Yosemite Valley. Do the Sentinal Dome Hike by Glacier Pt. 1 hour hike but spectacular. Go to Glacier Pt. for sunset. Go to the very end. Did the Taft Hike also by Sentinal Dome.Hold on to any kids since the cliffs are sheer drops. Tram ride through Mariposa Grove fun. Gas up while you are there. Definitely fill up with gas before you get to Yosemite, otherwise 30 minutes to any gas station and prices high. Owners are very helpful.
