“Home away from home”
Reviewed June 3, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed for 2 nights & arrived very late at night. Yet, Tom and Teresa were on the balcony to greet us. A bottle of red wine was left on the dinning table for us. We had a wonderful time relaxed and recharged after a long day of hiking and sightseeing. We feel like this is our own vacation home with all the amenities in place. It was a very short and enjoyable stay for us and we hope to return for a longer vacation next time.

“Absolutely perfect base in Yosemite”
Reviewed May 7, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We stayed at Alpine Escape for 4 nights during our honeymoon to California.

The service from Tom was fantastic from the moment that we first booked (including advice on snow and tyre chains which fortunately was not required) - very prompt and helpful replies. When we arrived Tom gave us a friendly welcome and there was a complimentary bottle of wine and frozen cookie dough in the apartment - both of which were lovely surprises.

The location is great - Yosemite West is in the park, around 30-40 mins from Glacier Point, Yosemite Valley and Wawona. It's quiet and the properties all seem v spacious (this is no exception!).

The property itself is very modern and stylish inside. The kitchen was huge and well equipped. There was a washing machine and drier for taking care of dirty hiking kit. There was a really good mix of DVDs. All in all it was a really comfortable and pleasurable place to spend an evening after a day outside. We loved it.

“Great apartment from booking to check out!”
Reviewed May 6, 2012 for a stay in March 2012

We spent four nights in Yosemite during Spring Break with our two kids aged 10 & 8. The property was extremely nice with really nice facilities. It is furnished and finished to high specs. Theresa was very helpful and friendly with any questions or issues we had. I would highly recommend this property.

“Exactly as Advertised”
Reviewed May 4, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

We found the Alpine Escape Yosemite Rental as pictured on their website, except maybe bigger. All was very clean & neat. It was extremely nice to have a washer & dryer available. Laundry soap was provided. The appliances are high quality & the water....not hard like mine :) The only cooking items I missed in the kitchen, my fake wooden spoon & spatula. Tom was helpful with information on a park entrance closure. I wish we would have had a day just to relax in their beautiful home!
Be sure to check Tom's hiking tips. The hike near the house was refreshing, like being one with nature.

“So glad we stayed!!”
Reviewed April 11, 2012 for a stay in August 2011

First off I would to like to say a big thank you to Tom and Theresa for a lovely two night stay and making us feel very welcome. Even after we initially booked Tom was extremely helpful and give us the best tips and advice for directions and recommendations on the must see things to do in Yosemite. In terms of location and planning out the short time hear place was ideal for us; Only 20 mins drive to the centre of the Valley and positioned almost on the foot of the road up to glacier point, which also bypasses a nice short walk up to Sentinel Dome. The apartment itself is very well furnished with very modern amenities and plenty of space to accommodate to four people. They also have a good range of DVD's to watch, so it was nice to snuggle up on the sofa after a long day of exploring and relax; just like being back home. We are so glad we chose Alpine Escape over the hotels in the Valley and we won’t hesitate to book again in the future on our next trip to Yosemite

“Cozy and comfortable stay with friendly hosts”
Reviewed February 22, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

This is long overdue as we stayed there in Dec 2011.

Yosemite was our second stop in our San Francisco/California trip. Prior to arriving in Yosemite or even US, there were already some correspondence between me and the host, Tom. And they already provided some helpful tips and guide.

The home was cozy and comfortable, and well kept too. We had everything we needed. The washer and dryer definitely came in handy since we had two young kids with us for the whole trip.

The host seemed like active hiker/climber and it showed when they were sharing with us what we could do in the park. We wished we had planned more days there as there were quite a few things we could have done.

Believe it or not, our kids enjoyed the house so much that they still mention about "Uncle Tom's house in America" every know and then !

“Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed October 7, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

I could not be happier with our stay at Alpine Escape. We stayed at this location for our honeymoon, and we had a wonderful time! The home is exactly as pictured. It is very clean, newly remodeled, and beautiful. Tom and Theresa were amazing hosts and extremely helpful. Tom even recommended a beautiful hike that we really enjoyed! The next trip out to Yosemite, we will definitely be back!
