“Good rental close to Yosemite Valley”
Reviewed 24 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This is a good choice to stay close to Yosemite Valley if you cannot find a place in the Valley. The apartment had plenty of space for the two of us. It was very clean. Kitchen had sufficient small appliances but could do with a few more place settings.

I did not like the access to the apartment. I also did not like the requirement to not just wash but dry and store all the dishes in the kitchen cabinets. The non-availability of Wifi in the apartment was another negative made worse by no service from our wireless carrier, AT&T.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay in Yosemite West. We are always glad to hear when guest have had a pleasant experience and consider us a, “good choice.” Thank you for the compliments on our cleanliness as well.

Our place settings are based on the maximum occupancy for the unit. Asking our guest to wash their own dishes helps to keep our housekeeping cost low so that we can continue to offer reasonable rates. Cell phone and internet service can be sketchy in the mountain area, which is why we provide landlines with free local calls. We have several units with a variety of access areas, and we do hope that you will stay with us again.

“Good Accomodation but Communication Challenged”
Reviewed 28 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Clean, comfortable and cute but communication challenged. I stayed in another vacation rental in Yosemite West two years ago and therefore was familiar with the location. What I wasn't prepared for was how difficult it would be to get e-mail or to communicate via phone. No internet, no cell service and house phone would only dial out to 209 area code. That meant calling management was limited to between 4pm-8pm. The other rental in Yosemite West had both cell service and internet. FWIW we own a vacation rental property in So. CA and I do think that given the lack of cell service the owner really does need to provide internet service.

Management was helpful and the downstairs neighbors were friendly and helpful when we couldn't get our charcoal lighted. :)

And as other reviewers stated, pack light! The downstairs neighbors stated that they counted 62 stairs. I'd add another 15 to 20 for the stairway to this upper unit.

Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your stay. We are always glad to hear when someone has enjoyed the cleanliness, comfort, and cuteness of one of our units. Unfortunately, the mountain area does not receive the best cell phone reception, and we do have very limited internet options. In the interest of keeping our rates low, landlines are provided for free local calls. Long distance calls can be made through your choice of long distance carriers with a credit card. Our on-site staff are available from check-in at 4 p.m. until as late as 10 p.m., and a message can always be left for them on the answering machine or at the registration office. They are both checked throughout the day, and our staff are always happy to address guests concerns as soon as they are able. There are 63 stairs leading to Yosemite Woods, plus an additional set of stairs leading to the upper unit. We have several units to suite every need, and we do hope that you will continue to stay with us while visiting Yosemite.

“Great location and comfortable place to stay.”
Reviewed 20 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We enjoyed staying here. It is a perfect location for Badger Pass and half way between Wawona and the Valley. We travel to Yosemite often and were happy to find this place. The unit is clean and nicely decorated and well equipped for cooking. There are no stores, but we brought food and also ate in the Valley. The only caution is that it is a steep walk down stairs to get to from the street and then another short but steep staircase up to the unit. No cell service either. So anyone with a disability or trouble walking couldn't stay here.
Otherwise, we hope to stay here again soon!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Yosemite West was the perfect location for exploring Yosemite, I saw no advantage to staying in the valley itself. It was about a 40 minute drive to the valley but the road is paved and fast and filled with great views, seemed equal distance to Wawona hotel (if you wanted dinner there) and right at Glacier View road. Yosemite West didn't feel like a regular neighborhood, houses were spread out in the woods. This unit was in a small group of houses but they aren't next to each other so still felt private. Everything was extremely clean and updated. The kitchen had everything needed for basic meals. although the fridge could be bigger. Satellite tv, no internet (but that seems the norm for the area- not necessarily a bad thing). The steps were tough when bringing in luggage but other than that 10 minutes no problem. Don't try to check in before 4pm, there isn't anyone there (little earlier check in time would be nice). They're also strict about cancel/change policy which was a little inconvenient when I revised some of my plans but it worked out fine. Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here!
