1/5 Terrible

Good upon first arrival but things got worse as the week went on
I had read other reviews about the place being dirty but upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised, it seemed clean and prefectly livable. As the stay went on we noticed more and more things that were wrong. Best thing was how close it was to the park. Biggest problem: the hot tub wasn’t properly cared for. It seemed fine when we got there but by the end of the week it smelled terrible. Some of us got pretty bad RASHES because the water wasn’t properly treated. This is unacceptable. Second biggest problem: the WiFi was essentially non existent. Technically we had WiFi but couldn’t stream any videos or even load Instagram. We even brought our own Apple TV to use but nothing worked. There were also no directions on how to connect in the house and it took us hours to figure it out. Trash: the trash is in basic cans on the outside patio. Every single night animals came and threw the trash everywhere. I understand you can’t do much about the animals but basic animal prevention trash cans would have been good. Coffee pot: was broken when we arrived so we had to make coffee and quickly transfer is to the blender. Made a huge mess. Washer/Dryer: dryer didn’t work. We did a load of laundry and couldn’t dry it so we ended up taking wet clothes home. We contacted the property about it during the trip but they didn’t respond. Overall cleanliness: it was fairly okay at first glance but the carpet in the main room was disgusting.

4/5 Good

Great location, house, and amenities
The pros: This house has a great proximity to Yosemite valley. It has a well stocked kitchen, with a pleasant deck just off of it. The bedrooms have comfortable beds, with enough space in each room. The house has access to a shared pool at the inn next door which we made good use of. The driveway could fit several cars if needed. The hot tub and the game room (which is tiny with one arcade and a so-so foosball table) are a plus. The cons: The dirt road leading to the house is steep and in poor condition, we drove a two wheeled truck in the summer and handled it fine, it would be tough in the winter. The internet is adequate, but not great, fine enough for surfing but not reliable enough for phone calls, WFH is pushing the limits. The cleanliness of the house is mediocre, the kitchen and bathrooms were clean, but the floors were probably just onced over with a Swiffer as we found hairs and snacks around that weren't ours. The sheets smelled like they were left in the washer for far too long. I only deducted one star for all these issues because in my opinion they are minor, none of these issues were so bad that we wouldn't stay there again.

Yosemite Vacation
The house was as advertised, nice and clean, owner was very responsive to our requests. The property did have a pack and play when we arrived which was not mentioned on the web site. The deck was great, the location to the park can’t be beat!

4/5 Good

Nice and Lovely place but not clean : )
The house was really cute and Lovely. The deck in particular. We enjoyed it a lot. The location of the house is also good. The one negative and challenging part is the access road. The uphill road to the house is not paved and driving will be really hard if you own a sedan. Be prepared! The second reason which lowered the rate for us was the cleanness of the house. Bathrooms were filthy.hairs on the floors : ( We had to clean and disinfect everything. Bed sheets and covers were not clean either! Whoever was supposed to clean the house didn't do his/her job well. There were no extra trash bag. only the ones in trash cans.
