The space
Welcome to our dream vacation home, centrally located inside Yosemite National Park!

-Glorious sunsets and incredible stargazing on clear evenings
-Surrounded by tall trees with flowering dogwoods in the Spring!

Please message before attempting to book and tell us a little bit about yourself and your party. Please inquire with us if you have any issues with available nights or minimum stays during your desired dates.

Preferred Minimum Stay: 5 nights preferred -- 2-4 nights stay reservations can be made during the shoulder seasons or when only those nights are left vacant between already booked dates.
NOTE: We cannot accept a reservation that leaves a single night vacant between your desired dates and an already booked date.

Please check the AVAILABILITY CALENDAR before contacting us and for more information, photos, reviews, etc. please inquire.

*** The Red Door apt. is the smaller, totally independent guest unit at the YOSEMITE SUNSET HOUSE duplex property, located below our other unit, on the mid-level floor; you may hear foot steps and other occupancy sounds coming from the vacation unit above -- soundproofing is in place but in sounds do travel!

Bright and clean, the one bedroom/one bath apartment offers a full kitchen, lots of windows, a gas fireplace in the living room, and its own deck with a gas BBQ, linen is provided and kitchen is fully equipped.

Mostly DISCONNECTED - no broadband internet, cable TV or reliable cell phone reception in this area. WiFi is sufficient for emails and basic internet use (no streaming, downloads, or heavy internet use is possible)

Centrally located to the 3 main tourist destinations in the park: Yosemite Valley, Glacier Point and the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias -- each of these locales are about 25-35 minutes drive.

The treetop views are made possible by ascending 38 stairs from the street level. Parking for one car only, on off-street paved area.

The apartment comfortably sleeps one couple. If your party is larger (couple + one child) please contact us in advance to discuss sleeping arrangements (... a child may sleep on a pull-out sofa in the living room). Pull-out sofa is not recommended for an adult. This property is not child-proofed so constant adult supervision is a must.

LARGER PARTIES, please view the Yosemite Sunset House rental home, located on the top floor of the same building and listed on AIRBNB.

TWO UNITS -- Important note regarding potential noise:
This unit is part of a DUPLEX PROPERTY. When staying in this unit, you should expect to hear occasional sounds of occupancy coming from the unit above you ... just like living on the first floor of a multi-level home ... We have done soundproofing but sound travels, may we suggest to those travelers that are extra-sensitive to noise, and if budget is not an issue, to consider booking the larger unit on the top floor.

STAIRS: there are 38 stairs to reach the Red Door apt. from the paved parking area. The unit is located on the mid-level floor, below the Sunset House unit.

Amenities: freshly laundered linen, gas BBQ , full kitchen (coffee, sugar, hot cocoa, oil, basic spices), hair dryer, shampoo and bath soaps.

Gas fireplace in living room = romantic ambience (winter only) but not needed for heating the apartment which has a powerful central heating system.

Location

Yosemite National Park, California, United States

Our neighborhood, Yosemite West, is centrally located INSIDE the park, only 1 mile off Hwy 41, and it's exclusively residential (no stores, restaurants, or other public facilities are situated nearby). Closest store/restaurant/medical clinic/etc are located in the Valley area (30 min drive).
Our neighborhood is quiet at night and when weather cooperates, it offers great star gazing opportunities. Outside lights should be turned off for best stargazing conditions for all visitors and residents.
Parking on the streets is not allowed.

TRASH HANDLING: Due to Yosemite being bear habitat, there is no public garbage pick up hence strict garbage handling house rules apply.

IMPORTANT NOTE about FIRE HAZARD: there is no firehouse or firefighting help in our area therefore extreme caution is required when using BBQs (when allowed) and wood burning fireplaces are off limit to guests.
