“Paradise near Yosemite!”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was my boyfriend and I's first time renting out someone's home & I'll be honest, we did not know what to expect, but the experience was unbelievable. The home itself is just gorgeous, nice urban decor and SO CLEAN. It was also nice stepping into a room with air conditioning after having been outside in over 100-degree heat, we were truly thankful for Bob turning it on prior to us arriving. It was hot out. Speaking of Bob, well he's such a friendly fellow, he and his girlfriend/wife. It was really nice speaking to them on our arrival, so informative and hospitable, not to mention considerate! You will get a glimpse just to how considerate they are when you check out the home & the amenities they provide. There were countless items that had slipped our minds about packing, but after a while of Bob saving our rears we'd say.. "It's okay, Bob's got our back!" It basically became our slogan for the weekend. Haha! Also, talk about being one with nature, Bob's home was the wilderness! During our stay we saw several deer just roaming his very backyard, great for photos. I really can't recommend Bob's retreat enough! Great memories were made there & I don't think they would have happened anywhere else. Thank you for having us Bob!

“A Pent House with a great view beneath the stars”
Reviewed August 11, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were surprised with the wonderful hospitality! The owner, Bob, is a very lovely and caring person and has an excellent taste.
His house is extremely cozy, beautiful and perfectly neat. The place has everything you could need; towels, shampoo, T.V., speakers, pool, fireplace, barbecue ready, information about the place, and the most important A BEAUTIFUL view of the mountains and the stars. Romantic hideaway in the mountains by all means!

“Nice host and cute place”

My friends and I stayed at Bob's place two nights of 7/29 and 7/30. The place is very clean, nice and cozy. Location is convenient for gas and food. Bob is very kind and fun to talk to; a great host! He is very organized and helpful. There was a park pass from last guests that we used and a binder of lots of information for the park. How sweet and thoughtful.
I would say the house has a great view to the mountain. We saw the fire from our deck at night and even smelled it inside the room the second night. We also saw how hard the firefighters were working. It was an unusual experience and I do appreciate the firefighters and police officers; they are brave and courageous!
The downside is the location has a bit of drive to the park; it's a pretty drive but does get tiring if you wanna see a lot of places in the park. Room is very comfortable for two but tight for four.

Me and my parents enjoyed our stay at Bob's clean neat and sweet apartment. We got a lot of travel information about Yosemite from him and all those information was proved to be extremely helpful.

“Great place with fantastic views, friendly host”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Our family of three spent two nights at Bob's during a two week tour of California. Bob had a bottle of wine for us upon arrival, and a refrigerator stocked with condiments an other basic needs. We enjoyed conversation with him and some other guests around his fire pit, and our son enjoyed the above ground pool. The views were amazing and the sunrise over the mountains was breathtaking. It was a bit of a drive into Yosemite for the day, but it was a beautiful scenic drive. Bob had a great binder with lots of information on Yosemite that helped us plan our day in the park, and provided information on things to do/places to eat/shop in the small town of North Fork.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice getaway in a quaint little town. The only warning is that the shower has a slanted ceiling, so if you are much over 6 ft tall it may be a bit cramped (my 6'1" husband could stand straight, but anyone taller may have an issue).

“Great View”
Reviewed August 4, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Bob was very helpful when we arrived. He had great information on how to visit Yosemite and the surrounding area. He was very relaxed and inviting. We wish we would have had more time to stay in the area.

“Everything was perfect!”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Bob, Last minute made reservations for us to stay. When we arrived the place was set up perfectly with the fire place on and romantic lighting. The refrigerator had condiments in it in case we needed. This place is perfect for those that want to get away from it all and have a romantic evening in a beautiful house.
