“You have to stay here! ��”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed here in mid June as part of a two week stay in Marin County and San Francisco area. I traveled with my husband, 2 children, and the last minute addition of my niece. We had plenty of room! We are a well traveled family, and the Francisco's stand out! I cannot say enough about this couple and their accommodations. I second everything great said about them. Everytime I looked for something we needed or forgotten, it was already at hand thanks to Gary's great care. He had all the local insider knowledge, and shared great restaraunts as well as shortcuts to the most popular hikes...a gem when hiking with 3 children! Ricky cut us fresh fruit our first morning, there were snacks, bug spray for the kids as they play on the tire swing out front, and hiking sticks! Ricky had the pool ready for us everyday on our return, and Gary had the grill ready and an interesting history lesson! We truly fell in love with this place and these people. As we left, my husband and I felt like we were leaving family! The Francisco's are true stewards of Yosemite, and our most unexpected treasure we found there!

“Wonderful vacation spot”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This is a fantastic place to enjoy peace and serenity. Gary and Rickey are wonderful hosts who made us feel welcomed and special. They were very responsive to our needs. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and well-stocked in goodies.

We wanted somewhere to relax during our 3 week fly drive around California and Nevada. Having searched thru many hotels in the area we decided to look at b+bs and came across Juniper Crest. After looking at the reviews we got in contact with the owners (Gary + Rickey) and after 2 emails we were all booked in for 3 nights. They even sent us directions from our hotel in Mammoth as sat nav not too reliable in Yosemite.
On arrival we were invited in to their home to finish the paperwork and Gary gave us some great tips on where to eat and where to shop locally which saved us money. He also lent us a pair of binoculars for our hike up Half Dome the next day.
He then gave us a thorough guided tour of their very well equipped apartment which is extremely comfortable and perfect for my wife and I. You also get your own parking space in the garage.
The following day after our 16 mile hike their pool came in very handy to cool off as temperatures had reached 100degrees. Gary and Rickey were there to give us some advice on how to spend our 2nd day in a more relaxing way.
After we had cooked ourselves dinner and sat out on the patio to eat it they brought us out some ice cream to cool us down....very nice!! And gave me some cream to rub on my sore feet!! It's little touches like this that make Gary + Rickey great hosts and Juniper Crest a fantastic place to stay.
I can't recommend this place highly enough.
To top it all off before we even got to our next hotel we had received an email from them thanking us for staying with them and hoping we return soon, when do you get that from a hotel???
STAY HERE!!!!

“Absolutely lovely”
Reviewed June 29, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

On our 4 week trip this was our number 1 accomodation. It has all been said here before, the hosts are such genuine nice people which makes it the best. The location is perfect, away from the busy yosemite park, but near enough on a beautiful tour. Mariposa, a small town with all amenities, just a 10 minute drive. The apartment stocked with finesse, and grateful Gary let us use the BBQ. After eating out for some weeks, it is nice to cook your own on a perfect gas BBQ. Pity we only booked 3 nights, but this is a place I am definite returning to!

“Just perfect for our family vacation”
Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Cozy, homey, peaceful, very comfortable, really neat and tidy. Just what you need after a long day from the Yosemite park. It was really a pleasant surprise for us to find this little place that made our trip to Yosemite even better. It has all the amenities we need ( can cook with the range and also a BBQ grill in the patio), our little boy can play in the big backyard with small pool and a very nice tire swing and my teenager appreciated the really good wifi. Let's not forget the three-seater swing that affords us to gaze at the stars every night as we enjoy our wine. And though it was attached to the owners' property, it still felt very private and like your own as Gary and Rickey, though very helpful when you seek them out, keep to themselves. We will sure come back again.
