I live in Belmont, I am a preschool teacher.
Our stay in Groveland was ok and Krista is very nice : we had our room with air conditionning, useful in this part of the country !
This place is situated in a gated community, so it's necessary to enter by the big gate the fisrt time (what we didn't understand, and it's difficult to enter a gated community if you don't have the passe access), and to check if your GPS know it well or not !! They will take your identity at the enter of the gated community.
But we realized that we didn't understand in the same way some information : no smoking is no smoking AT ALL, even outside or on the patio, no alcohol is also AT ALL, even if you don't drink your biers for example inside.
Krista was nice with us, but because of her baby she was really really busy, it wasn't the right place to improve our English !
Great place to start your Yosemite experience. Krista kept in touch with us (we weren't sure what time we would arrive), and all went smoothly. She gave us a warm welcome. She was also very helpful with recommendations about where to eat locally and about what to see at Yosemite. Our room was very comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Beautiful location, quiet, with deer wandering around. Thanks Krista.
Krista was a very good host, very helpfull and for our first breakfast she offers us a very good breakfast!
The room has got just the essential a very good bed with a lot of pillows.
Her house is in a wonderfull residence with a private lake, so great!
Very much enjoyed our stay at Krista and Ben's place. It is located in a gated community around Pine Mountain Lake a few miles out of town. The house itself is pretty simple but has plenty of room for a family or group gathering. The deck is especially nice to hang out on in the evenings. The upstairs bedrooms can get quite warm in the summer but the overhead ceiling fans worked well. The big draw of course is the proximity to Yosemite and Ben recommended a great day hike which we loved. We also took advantage of the community pool and visited the Pine Mountain Stables for a hayride and BBQ...
The place is really nice, and really quiet as it is tucked at the bottom of a hill at the end of a no through road. You're only 30min away from Yosemite park (1h from Yosemite village), so it is very easy to get there every day.
Krista was very helpful and although she wasn't there during our stay, explained everything to us before she left. She left at our disposition several books for climbing and visiting yosemite park which was very useful.
The room in itself is great, and we really appreciated the fan above the bed at night, when it had been hot during the day! It's all very clean, very comfy.
Would definitely recommand and come again next time we come to Yosemite park!
Good location for exploring Yosemite and great leisure facilities within the local community including access to the lakeside beaches, swimming pool and restaurant at the golf course.
I had a wonderful stay at Krista's place. While Krista wasn't around, she did everything possible to make it comfortable for us. For the price, this is about as close as you would get to Yosemite. Highly recommend!
Krista was a perfect host. We enjoyed our stay in her cottage located at a really beautiful spot and can recommend visiting the pool especially at full moon.
