About this listing
Offering Queen's bed and Kings' breakfast, Helen's house is located in Fresno, California, 90 miles south from Yosemite and 90 miles west from Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. After the excursion of one national park and leave for another one, you can cool down yourself in the swimming pool in the back yard. If you travel from Los Angeles to northern California by car, this is the perfect place for staying overnight. The neighborhood is very clean and quiet area, which means you can sleep soundly without any noise except birds' chirping in the morning. The guest quarter consists of: a big bedroom, which is bright and clean ; own bathroom with a small refrig ; a very big living room furbished with a big screen TV, piano, etc. You will have a total privacy because it is located at the end of the house, separated from other rooms. There is even a separate entrance door to the street if you want to use it. Kitchen and laundry are open to use.
In the night, you can watch the star in the lighted (in the water) swimming pool and enjoy drinks around the pool after the refreshing dip. If you are not very tired after driving and if it is not too late, Helen always offers complimentary wine or cool beer with very tasty cheese and other goodies.
In the morning, you will have a healthy and abundant breakfast in addition to the fresh fruits. The breakfast includes special omelette, bacon (or chicken sausage or ham, whatever suits you), juice, and the very special toast smeared with avocado and pesto sauce.
Lastly, but not the least, Helen's house is only 1 mile (precisely 0.9 mile) from the highway 41, which means you don't need to drive local road too long in order to arrive here. Also, several important grocery stores are very near. You name it: Whole Foods, Trader Joe, Food Max, Save mart, etc. whatever suits your preference, which means you can refurbish your nutritional necessity anytime. They are all less than 5 minutes driving distance. So, why not visit Helen's place when you are in Fresno? Her dog, Oreo, is another addition to this welcoming place.

Great experience there. Very decent breakfast and good chat with Helen. She has a cat and dog. Both are lovely. First time with airbnb and got a deep impression by the hoster.
Perfect stay. The house, the location, the pool and breakfast was great. Helen is a lovely person. Totally recommended.
Helen was simply amazing! We were treated like old friends right from the start. Her hospitality and the beautiful room made for an incredible experience. Thank you so much!
We really enjoyed our stay with Helen. She made us feel very welcome in our house. We also loved talking with her during dinner about travel experiences and life in the US. The room was very comfortable and the pool is very refreshing after a hot day in Fresno. Breakfast was delicious. Thank you Helen!
Helen was a great host! She communicated in a clear and very timely manner. Her welcome was gracious and the room comfortable. She made an excellent breakfast that was, as the title suggests, fit for s King. I would stay there next time and can recommend to others
Helen was a very gracious host. She was very accommodating and she had a snack when I arrived and made breakfast when I departed. She offered so many options for breakfast and was willing to make anything to eat for me.
Helen was a great host who helped us out when we came from Yosemite at the late night without place to sleep. She made us a comfortable stay at her cosy house. We also had a delicious breakfast and a nice conversation with her.
All in all a perfect short stay!
