“Look no further for a great condo in Yosemite!”
Reviewed 19 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

This place was PERFECT!!!! The pictures on the web site are exactly what you get. Clean, and modern condo with just the right amenities for a stay in the park. We were there for 6 nights. Hiked everyday and absolutley loved coming back to Tom and Theresa's little gem for relaxing at night. No cell, internet, or TV, but they supply a very varied selection of DVD's which we could watch while drinking wine and preparing for the next day's hike. Location is perfect for hiking up by Glacier Road but there was no problem getting to anywhere in the park from there. Would stay here again in a minute---loved the place!!!!!

“Modern comfort, peace and quiet minutes from Yosemite Valley”

We stayed at Tom and Theresa's vacation rental last week and had a completely positive experience. When my boyfriend and I return to Yosemite, we will definitely stay here again.

What: A private apartment INSIDE Yosemite National Park in a small subdivision called Yosemite West. Perfectly located about 15-20 minutes from the Valley, Glacier Point and Wawona/Mariposa Grove (OK maybe a few more minutes to there).

What we liked: We liked getting away from the tourists/crowds in Yosemite Valley and enjoying a home away from home with our own kitchen, washer/dryer, etc. Even though Tom and Theresa live upstairs, they were very respectful of our privacy. They are incredibly responsive to questions and their management of the unit is outstanding.
The apartment is spacious and literally brand new. The photos are very reflective of what to expect -- it's gorgeous and comfortable.

PROS: A great place for independent travelers to enjoy beautiful Yosemite, especially those who enjoy the convenience of being able to have a few meals at home. Comfy bed, couch, brand new flat screen and a gorgeous granite kitchen that I wish I had at home. Grill, some coffee, a special treat or two, and laundry detergent were provided which lightened our shopping load a bit.

CONS: No satellite TV or internet service. Cells do not work at the house (but they also don't work in many places in the Park). We actually ended up enjoying being off the grid, but if you need internet, you need to go to a hotel in the Valley and pay for access. There is a small outdoor patio outside the private entrance, but no view if that's important to you.

TIPS: We enjoyed sunsets at "Tunnel View" near the Wawona tunnel on the way home from the Valley to Tom & Theresa's most nights (with a little wine). I loved that we were so close to Glacier Point! Our favorite adventures were hiking out to Taft Point from Glacier Point Road and the Panorama Trail (8.5 mi and brutal steps down for the last 2.5 miles, but an amazing way to see the Valley -- buy tix for the 8:30am Glacier Point tour bus from Yosemite Lodge tour desk; park at Yosemite Lodge, take bus up, hike down and take free shuttle back to the Lodge where you can have a celebratory beer in the Lounge or dinner at the Mountain Room).

If you've not been to Yosemite, all I can say is go! And, of course, Tom and Theresa's place is the perfect place to stay. So glad I found them on TripAdvisor. Enjoy.

“Perfect!”

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights in May, and it was an absolute gem. I think it's worth staying outside of the tourist madness of the centre of Yosemite not only for the quiet neighbourhood, but also the drive in and our of central yosemite. You go past some stunning views, including the famous tunnel view. I never got tired of seeing it as we drove back and forth. The drive into Yosemite Valley takes about 15-20 mins.

Tom and Theresa were perfect hosts, Theresea emailed me a lot of detailled information before we came, indlucing driving directions and what the weather was likely to be like (though it's madly unpredictable). It was fantastic to be greeted with a bottle of wine and cookie dough to help ourselves to, as well as a visit from Tom and Theresa themselves, who popped down to check we arrived OK and to give us some info on the area. The apartment itself was everything we needed - and a washing machine a very welcome extra, as we were running close to low on all clean clothes! After staying in hotels and eating out for most of our trip in the US it was great to have all the self catering facilities of a kitchen, plus tupperware tubs etc for taking out picnics in the daytime. A tip for self catering would be to hit one of the big supermarkets in the small town outside Yosemite - more choice of foods and a bit cheaper, but remember to take all food out of your car so bears don't get to it! The bed gave a good night's sleep and bathroom was excellent also.

I would love to visit Yosemite again and would not hesitate to stay here. Staying with people who know and love the area is so much more worthwhile than being in a faceless hotel!
