Come stay at this adorable apartment in the mountains of historic Jamestown, located just 83 miles west of Yosemite National Park. This is a GREAT place to stop between Yosemite and the San Francisco Bay area! Rent our kayaks to enjoy the beautiful lakes nearby ($20/day plus deposit to use at your pleasure during your stay)

The space

You will enjoy a private driveway and entrance to this one bedroom and bathroom ground floor apartment surrounded by a large yard and gardens in a quiet neighborhood with beautiful mountain views.

The entire apartment is yours to enjoy and includes a newly remodeled living room and kitchenette with refrigerator, stove, microwave and coffee maker. The king size bed can be separated to twin beds if you prefer.

We have two sit-on-top kayaks that you are welcome to use during your visit for an additional $20/day. There are several beautiful lakes in the area to explore. Life jackets, paddles and straps are provided. A security deposit (check for $500) will be returned to you as long and you return the kayaks undamaged. When you inquire, let me know if you would be interested in their use.

Guest access

The entire apartment is yours to enjoy including the patio and yard.

Interaction with guests

We live upstairs so we are nearby if you need anything. Check-in is easy and self-explanatory but we are here to help if needed. In the apartment, there are several Yosemite guide books as well as information about the area so you can find great places to eat and explore.

We stayed one night with Lorena & Kristi after traveling through Yosemite that day on our way back to San Francisco. Their place is ideally located outside the park and close to highways heading West. Although we didn't get to meet our hosts they were extremely prompt in replying to all questions we had. The house itself is very cosy and clean. It's much bigger than the photos lead you to believe. Very happy with our stay and would return again if we find ourselves out that direction any time soon.

Our hosts were excellent. We were greeted and were extended a gracious welcome. Anything we needed, we were advised not to hesitate to ask. Two thumbs up!

Lorena & Kristi's place was clean and comfortable. Their directions were very clear and didn't need to reach out for anything during our stay.

Good place to stay for visiting Yosemite NP and surrounding area! The hosts are responsive. Not a fancy place but value is there. Do not expect good WiFi coverage... no tv is not a problem for us.

Nice little private apartment in the hills. Clean and well-equipped, loads of privacy. There was a binder on the table with local recommendations and local info, very helpful. There are some things you have to keep in mind: - The driveway is pretty steep and narrow, so if you have a low car it can be a challenge to get up. - The hosts live right above you, you will be able to hear footsteps. - The locals like to race cars at night, it might wake you up. - The bed is really hard. Just a personal preference.

I am originally from Mexico but have been in California over 25 years and am a graphic designer. Kristi is a pediatric nurse and loves living in California. We enjoy cycling, swimming, hiking, kayaking, gardening and traveling. Some of our favorite travel destinations have been Japan, Berlin, Paris and Central/South America. We have adopted the motto to be the change we wish to see in the world.
The best part about hosting with Airbnb is that when we are not traveling the world, the world is coming to us.
