Perfect Couples Retreat, or treat yourself if you’re traveling solo
Pamper yourself in our 3rd floor Bedroom Suite, enjoy incredible views combined with hospitality from the heart. A perfect place to rest after a full day of hiking and driving 1.5 hours back from Yosemite Valley. Here Artists &/or Writers can getaway to create with a connection to nature. The Artist/Hosts live on the 2nd floor and are eager to share tips on hiking trails, painting & photography. Only a 10 min drive to local restaurants (no kitchen in this space).
Things to note:
Please check driving distances and directions to the places you plan to visit before requesting to book. Note that the Valley Floor of Yosemite is a 1.5 hour drive from Oakhurst. Many guests underestimate the time it takes to drive to Oakhurst from other California destinations and airports. Allow extra time for traffic if traveling through large cities.
SECOND AIRBNB RENTAL ON THE PROPERTY:
There might be other Airbnb guests in our 1st floor, 2 bedroom apartment at the same time you are here but they are seperated from you by our 2nd floor living space and should not cause a problem. Use caution when entering and exiting the one-way driveway.
We do not allow any cooking in the room and ask that if you bring in take-out food that you dispose of packaging with an odor to the outside trash cans on the ground level. We prefer you eat on the outdoor bistro table when weather permits. (If you want a larger space with a kitchen check out our other listing ‘Two Bedroom Patio Suite’.)
NON-SMOKING GUESTS ONLY PLEASE:
The indoor space is fresh, new and as allergy free as possible and the outdoor deck is too close to doors & windows, plus the fire risk on our property is high in the summer).
NO CANDLES: Fire risk is too high.
NOT COMPLETELY DARK ROOM:
There is an uncovered arch at the top of one window and the lights from downtown slightly lighten the room even with all the curtains & blinds closed. From the deck you can enjoy stars if there are no clouds and smaller moon.
FURNITURE: Please do not move furniture without permission.
2 Adult (18+) guests only, please don’t ask for exceptions (it’s not safe for children – check our other ground floor listing if you want to bring them).
Mid-Summer through early Autumn we have extreme forest fire dangers and so no outdoor fires are allowed during those seasons and we ask that you take extra care about not parking your car over tall grasses and of course never throw anything lit (like cigarette butts) from the car.
INSTANT HOT WATER HEATER:
Because the water has to travel from the 1st floor to the 3rd floor it might take a while for the hot water to start running.
We have our own well water and a very extensive water treatment system (softening & purifying) using potassium. It is safe to drink and use in the coffee maker although it might have a mineral taste that is different than city water.
