“Perfect for a couple & family with children”
Reviewed December 7, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We chose this rental after reading the reviews and understood the reason why its rating were perfect. We spent a great time at Juniper from Nov 23 to 26. Our sons (11 &8) were very happy to play at the huge beautiful yard. We could be relaxed in VERY CLEAN and ORGANZED room, did not see any stain or dust. We enjoyed watching DVDs at night. The owner Gary and Richey are wonderful hosts. They were very friendly, gentle and kind. My husband broke a coffee pot when he is cleaning. So we told Gary about it and charge for it but he didn’t. Also, when we leave there, our children received a nice gift from them. Thank you so much! We felt that we stayed at our grandparents house . The location is very convenient to Yosemite, grocery and restaurant etc. Yosemite Juniper Crest Vacation Apartment is the best place to stay for a couple and small family. We will be back in summer for sure.

“A hidden gem close to Yosemite - no kidding”
Reviewed November 29, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

If I had a place near the mountains it would look like JuniperCrest. Gary and Rickey were so helpful when we got there. They got us acquainted with the lovely apartment and above all gave us helpful hints, maps and directions in and around Yosemite. Ask Gary and he will be more than happy to share his secrets on some Yosemite trails. He even let us use the grill for our Thanksgiving BBQ! Wish we could rate this place six stars. We would also rate Rickey's pumpkin pie a 10/10. Will definitely return in the near future. Best wishes for the Thanksgiving great grand kids.

“Piece of Heaven near Yosemite National Park”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Unfortunately, due to our schedule, we got there by midnight and we really hope that wasn't an issue for Gary and Rickey. They kindly provided the outside lights for us so that we could find the parking lot easily. Gary and Rickey welcomed us warmly into their home. Gary showed us the apartment and all the essential things. The place provides more than you need: there were even snacks for our hikes and some pasta for a dinner. Rickey also helped us with the laundry which was offered for a reasonable fee. The place was so quite and so scenic: a cat here, a deer there. Though we had to drive more than an hour to the park itself or another spot to hike from, it was worth in the end, because we would return to this peaceful place and have our dinner and watch a nostalgic VHS. We would also like to mention that the email-communication was very friendly, efficient and super helpful. We would definitely be the guests of Gary and Rickey, shall we happen to visit Yosemite for another time.

“An amazing place!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The 4 days we stayed here from the UK were the highlight of our tour around California. The apartment is beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean and has everything needed for a comfortable stay for the 4 of us including our 19 and 20 year old sons. We had the use of the barbecue and also their swimming pool. It is in a beautiful area just 25 miles from one of the entrances to Yosemite National Park. In the mornings we watched the deer and the humming birds from the veranda and when it was dark watched the stars from the sun loungers beside the pool.
However it was the hosts, Gary and Rickey, who really made the stay so amazing, They are such friendly, welcoming people and Gary spent ages giving us fantastic advice about what to see and where to go in the National Park (especially as we were visiting at the busiest time of the year).
We took all their advice and visited the Yosemite Valley on the first day and climbed up to Vernal Falls (which was still flowing!); then to the Meadows on the second day and finally down to the Mariposa Sequoia Grove and up to Glacier Point on our final day. Everywhere was breathtaking. We even saw a bear with her cubs along the Merced River.
We would love to go back one day and cannot thank Gary and Rickey enough for their hospitality. You will not find a better place to stay than this!

“Wonderful Friendly Hospitality”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My family 2 Adults & 3 children stayed at Juniper Crest for 3 nights in June 2014.
From the moment we arrived we were treated with absolutely amazing hospitality, there were treats for the kids, Gary & Rickey were wonderful with such helpful information about Yosemite National Park for us Aussies!!
The kids aged 14, 11, 7 were so happy to be able to get outside instead of being stuck in a Hotel room like they had been for the past 2 weeks.
We loved being able to some cooking for ourselves and get our healthy eating diet back to normal.
The kitchen had every possible thing you could think of in it, there were board games and a selection of DVD's to give that real homely feeling.
I would highly recommend anybody to stay with Gary & Rickey & you will not be disappointed.
