Overall I would say that I am satisfied with the home. While it is outdated and could definitely use and upgrade in the kitchen and bathrooms, the house is spacious and very comfortable. I specifically looked for a home with no steps/stairs to bring my 98-year-old grandma. This house perfectly fit our needs. However, the satellite TV and the air-conditioning have not worked the entire week of our stay here. That was a bit disappointing as we were very much looking forward to watching the Olympics. Since the Internet was spotty, we couldn’t rely on the Wi-Fi either. There is a DVD player next to the TV, however, there are no DVDs provided. If you plan to run the house, and you plan to use the TV, bring some DVDs!

The layout is great. Rooms are spacious and the deck facing into the wood (without seeing any neighbors) is awesome. One small downside is the flies that do come out during meals. It’s their backyard too, so be prepared with lighting something to deter them. Otherwise, what a nice getaway location.

(As you check in during the hot summer, the house gets a little hot on arrival. Give the AC time for the cool down and don’t expect an instant temp change).
Jan R. Jun 2021
House in good location for beach.
Marcela L. May 2021
We enjoy the house, the wonderful deck and the area around. We are definite coming back
Julie J. Apr 2021
The house was great. It's close to Yosemite and we spent three day there. Groveland has a grocery store that was well stocked. When we had a small problem with low propane for the BBQ we did one phone call and it was taken care of by the time we returned the next day. I would be happy to stay at this house again. Our only suggestion is bring kleenex and any cooking oil with you, otherwise it was well stocked.
Alex O. Apr 2021
Great place, we really enjoyed our stay! This house has a nice deck nestled amongst the trees. Very quiet and serene. Good kitchen. Easy access to Groveland shopping and restaurants. Easy access to Yosemite area. We would stay again!
Sharon N. Feb 2021
Lovely open floor plan, great views. Very well equipped kitchen.
Meaghan K. Jul 2020
The house and kitchen is fully stocked, very comfortable and in a great location. The balcony is nice when it's not too hot. I forgot my bacon microwave tray so bring some bacon and make a nice breakfast. The kitchen countertop is very spacious and easy to store your food. There's dish, dishwasher and laundry soap, paper towels, normal hotel bathroom stuff, beach towels. We enjoyed cooking and watched some movies, although the signal isn't the best. The security at the entrance is quick. We couldn't use the community facilities due to covid.

comfortable, roomy, great for our family needs.
Leticia L. Oct 2019
Had troubles but this company quickly made it right, that was great for us, we really enjoyed this place. It was beautiful.
Augustin B. Sep 2019
The house is so nice. Just a little bit far from Yosemite treks (1h30 by car)
Gemma N. Jul 2019
It was awsome

Une maison magnifique nichée dans un Havre de paix. Rencontre avec lièvres, biches, écureuils... Superbe
Mike M. Jun 2019
A nice, quiet, comfortable, roomy place. Drove to various YNP spots each day we were there. Loved the deck and its awning.
Paulina N. May 2019
Everything was great. Apartment was huge and there was everything what we need. Very close to National Park and beautiful lake. View from terrace directly for nature- forest with wild animals. Great.

Yosemite es un parque que tiene una entrada oficial en una carretera. Para acceder a esa entrada, cerca hay una pequeña aldea con gasolineras y algunas tiendas. Pero la zona residencial más cercana, como a 40 minutos en coche por la misma carretera, es donde se encuentra esta casa. La casa es maravillosa, con una terraza que mira los árboles y a las montañas con un salón gigantesco con dos dormitorios de matrimonio con baño y con un dormitorio con dos camas literas sin baño. Tiene también garaje para el coche. Está muy cerca de un pequeño lago tranquilo Y bien organizado que merece la pena visitar y donde os podéis bañar. Nunca llegas a ver al administrador de la casa. Llegas, está allí la llave, y cuando te vas la dejas en el mismo sitio. La casa estaba limpia y magníficamente cuidada. Como para quedarse una semana…

We loved our time in groveland. The house had lots of space quiet and cozy .
Enio T. Jan 2019
House was cozy with plenty of space. So close to Yosemite. Very private and we absolutely loved their deck. They had everything we forgot to bring, very well equipped.
Only down side was that the furniture in the living room area is pretty beat up. If you put the recliner out putting it back in is a bit of a challenge. Great home overall.
Fulgeno Gene P. Nov 2018
Very simple and elegant! Clean and very good lighting! Great backyard view. Would come back again
Nancy M. Oct 2018
Loved the great room/kitchen combo! Kitchen was well equipped. Living room furniture could use some updating. Bedrooms and bathrooms were comfortable and roomy.

Manfred K. Sep 2018
We had perfect days in a wonderful house, with two bedroom and seperate bathroom. A wonderful view from the terrace, were we had breakfast and BBQ every day! If possible, we will choose this location again! Thank you very much to the host!
Femke Z. Jul 2018
The house is location in a nice gated park around a lake with several beaches and a marina. Properties are quite far apart: lots of privacy and silence. The house is large: a large living room plus three bedrooms with two bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen.
Sas W. Jul 2018
Great house to visit Yosemite. Nice swimming lake
Erik B. Jul 2018

Kristen V. Jun 2018
We had a great time. It was a perfect house for our family during our trip to Yosemite. Our small kiddos lived the house, the bunk beds, and the deck!
Lynn B. Jun 2018
The house was lovely and had everything we needed. The setting was beautiful and the only hiccup was the security pass not being in the place it was supposed to be.
John M. May 2018
Espectacular el lugar. Hermoso, aseado, espacioso, bien ubicado. El mejor lugar para estar a tan solo media hora de Yosemite National Park
Bianca S. Apr 2018
The house is big and perfect for group. Good location, clean rooms and I could find everything necessary to cook, drink and to stay comfortable in the house. I would stay again in that house or others, using this service. Thank you vacasa!

Jason D. Sep 2017
It's about an hour and a half drive to the village. Not terribly close
David B. Sep 2017
Very nice property, spacious, good beds, great deck, well stocked and well located.
Christine S. Aug 2017
House is very comfortable for a family deck is terrific. Quiet, lovely view, like being in a tree house.
Mary B. Jul 2017
The house was our base for Yosemite. Although the house is only about 25 miles to the entrance , once inside the park traffic was very heavy. Still had s great time and thought groveland was a good base. Used the lake one day and it was nice but crowded . The house was much bigger than I thought it would be. Everyone slept great. The $27 per car parking pass is ridiculous . That's the only negative.
Paul T. Jul 2017
My family have had a wonderful holiday at the property. Everything was perfect, especially the porch. We spent most of our evenings out there for the BBQ and we didn't need to cook in the kitchen at all during our 5-day stay.

The house is located in a gated community and is close to Yosemite. There are lots of activities within the community and we spent the day time touring the Yosemite and the evening playing tennis or swimming in the lakes.

They have provided everything we needed for our stay - kitchen was well stocked and all the amenities were plenty for our use including washing powder. We did not need to buy anything extra.

There is a good supermarket nearby - 3 minutes drive or say 20 minutes walk. Plenty of choices and the prices were very reasonable.

Vacasa has provided very good services, from the first minute we booked the house and before check in. Very well done.
Arthi S. Jul 2017
We loved our stay here. It is a convenient one hour drive to yosemite valley. Wish we could have stayed longer and explored the surrounding a little more which we didn't get a chance to. Will surely visit again.
Pavel B. Jun 2017
We rented this place in the past years, so we know exactly what to expect. Excellent place!
Marina S. Jun 2017
We stayed here for two nights, and found out that the house is very clean and nice. We found everything you need. Obviously, will be happy to stay here again.
Nishant T. May 2017
This is an excellent accommodation for families upto 8 people. It has all the facilities and equipment and is extremely comfortable.
Candice P. Feb 2017
Everything was very accommodating and very clean. The view from the deck is amazing and the layout of the house was very kid friendly. The only thing that was a bit off putting was the carpeted dining area. With having small children we were paranoid about them dropping food. Otherwise it was perfect for our first family snow trip all together. It was also very convenient that the snow was so close, only about a 30 min drive from the house. Thank you very much for your lovely home.
Jose L. Feb 2017
We stayed in Groveland and had a great family vacation. Snow is only a short drive away and kids had a blast!
Niranjan C. Dec 2016
We were family of 7 visiting Yosemite for 3 days 2 nights stay. Everybody was very comfortable in the house. Views from the patio are nice as the rental property is on the top of the mountain. It takes about 1.5 hrs to reach to Yosemite Valley from Hwy 120.

Condition of the rental property is very nice, living room furniture is mixture of old and new furniture. All the bedrooms have cozy beds, Garage is big enough for 2 cars. Internet is good, although our cellular service was spotty, you can get At&t network outside the home and some places inside as well. Lot of kitchen stuff already available in the house, no need of bringing anything extra.

If you are checking in after hours in the evening or in the night, you have to pick the car passes from the mailbox at the REMAXX office in the town which is not far from the Pine Mountain lake property, but the VACASA board is not visible clearly in the night as it is fixed in the ground. Also, the lockbox which has key to the house will be located and attached to a water tap which is on the left side of the main door of the property (we had to search a bit using torch as it was pretty dark in the evening).
Craig F. Nov 2016
The house was in perfect condition, was very comfortable for our stay and in a great location. A lovely place to relax. Will definitely visit again!!

Very good, solid recommend
Rosa C. Sep 2016
We enjoyed our stay in Groveland had a nice dinner on the patio on our first night before hiking half dome and it was nice to have a comfortable place to rest after a long day hiking. I just wished we had more time to make it to the lake it looked like a great place to spend a day kayaking or jus relaxing by the water.
Kathy C. Aug 2016
My husband and I flew to CA for our son's graduation from Law School. It was also our 30th wedding anniversary. We were so pleased to enter a very well kept home, very clean and comfortable!
We stayed two nights and wished we could have had a week! It had a lovely Master bedroom and bath, with a very large closet ready to use. The shower was very nice with a hand-held nozzle and a built-in seat.
Besides the lovely view from the large second story deck, the large kitchen and living area were very inviting. But perhaps one of my favorite parts was the large, perfectly ordered garage that we put our vehicle in. It was also where the washer and dryer were located (especially helpful).
It was simply a great place and an exceptional price. I hope to visit again!
Eddie R. Aug 2016
This is a lovely house in a great location. It was perfect for my family's needs and we all felt very much at home during our stay. It is very close to the lake recreation area and the market nearby off of Ferretti road. If you are planning to visit Yosemite, its a little more than an hour away if you take the 120 East. We will definitely be planning another visit soon!
Amit S. Jul 2016
This is one of the best properties we have stayed at while visiting Yosemite. House is in excellent condition, with several helpful notes everywhere you would need them. Kids had a blast in the bunk bed. One of the best features is the well maintained deck with spectacular views of the forest.
Pavel B. Jul 2016
We planned to arrive to the property on 7/5/16 late evening.

Before the arrival, on 7/5, I called Vacasa to make sure that the lockbox code and the location of the lockbox will be available in the check in documents at the Vacasa office. The Vacasa representative assured that all this info will be provided, and the check in will be easy.
We arrived around 9 pm with the family of 3 small kids, picked up the documents in the mailbox at Vacasa office, and followed to the property. It was already dark, and the lockbox was not seen on or around the door. None of the Vacasa emails or documents picked at the office had the information about the lockbox location. Also, my cellphone did not work in this area.
I had to drive back to the gate. Kids started to cry. Fortunately, there was a pay phone, and, fortunately, I had a change to pay for the emergency call to Vacasa. Thanks god, there was a representative on duty, and he pointed out the location of the lockbox, few meters away from the front door. About an hour after arrival, I was able to enter the property.

That was not a pleasant experience.

Another issue with the Vacasa customer service.
In the package provided in the Vacasa office, there were two blank passes for 2 cars in our party. The passes were issued only for 7 days each. Our vacation lasted 12 days, so we needed a second set of 2 passes for the remaining 5 days. I called Vacasa in advance several times asking to issue the additional passes, and was promised the issue will be resolved. The only place to pick up the passes was a Vacasa office in Groveland. I visited it several times around noon, but the office was closed. The passes were not also delivered to the rental house. So, we had to “sneak” through the gates using expired passes.

The rental property 08/108 itself was in a good condition. No complaints.

We rented properties from RE/Max in Groveland for many years. But now, because of unsatisfactory customer service from Vacasa, I doubt if we will do it in the future.

Manager response:
We are very sorry to see that entering the home and using the parking passes was such a hassle for this guest. All lockbox/entry code information is provided to our guests via email a week prior to check-in; we ask that guests please read through this information carefully to ensure they do not miss anything. The parking passes were mistakenly deemed expired by the attendants at the main gate, but these passes were actually fine for the duration of the guest's stay. Again, we apologize that these items were so stressful for our guests.
