Have you ever wanted to stay on top of a mountain with amazing sunrises every morning and breath-taking sunsets every evening? Look no further! The Mountain Top Oasis is a tranquil private 9 acre retreat nestled in the oak trees close to Yosemite where you can also enjoy fabulous star gazing. The studio apartment has a small kitchenette (great for left-overs) and a comfy new Tempurpedic queen size mattress; feels like your sleeping on a cloud..
Newly Remodeled (as of April 21, 2017) New carpet, paint and beautiful crown molding. "The Mountain Top Oasis" is conveniently located in Mariposa and is the shortest route to Yosemite Valley (38 miles) as compared to other two entrances into Yosemite Valley (Oakhurst to Yosemite Valley is 47 miles and Groveland to Yosemite Valley is 50 miles). During your 38 mile travel to Yosemite National Park, enjoy the scenic drive along the Merced River and through the canyon. "The Mountain Top Oasis" is a beautiful 3300 square foot custom built home located on top of a mountain on 9 acres with 360 degree views boasting sunrise views looking toward Yosemite on one side of the property and sunset views of the mountains to the west every evening from your private suite; all for you to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy after a long day's hike in Yosemite. We are only 4 miles to the thriving and exciting gold mining town of Mariposa; we will share with you the local's scenic short cut. The Mountain Top Oasis is a two story home in which the Sunset view studio apartment is strategically located on the back side of the house, entirely blocked off from the rest of the house for total seclusion. The Sunset View studio apartment is private for your enjoyment only; private entrance, private bathroom, private living space, and private kitchenette (microwave, coffee pot, toaster, small refrigerator). There are no shared spaces within your studio apartment; all is for your pleasure. You are welcome to enjoy the surrounding property and all the outdoor amenities (excluding the hot tub as it is against county health codes to share with guests). Our property is private and secluded without neighbors. Come and enjoy the serenity and beauty of "The Mountain Top Oasis"!
Soak up some warm California sun on the patio and enjoy the gorgeous sunset from your room. Or enjoy our 'winter wonderland' surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Other things to note
No hidden fees! No security deposits! No cleaning fees! Price includes Mariposa County Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT). The studio apartment accommodates two people. Unfortunately, the studio is not designed for infants/toddlers/children. It is our policy to maintain a maximum occupancy of two as we do not wish to take on the liability of children. Contact the owner if you need to add a person. Rare exceptions are made for an additional fee. Additional persons MUST be approved prior to arrival! Please DO NOT ask to bring children to the property as it is simply not equipped.
- Please remove your shoes upon entering and come and go at your leisure! We ask that absolutely no smoking occurs inside "The Mountain Top Oasis." Pets are NOT allowed; NO EXCEPTIONS! Please be respectful of property indoors as well as outdoors by picking up after yourself; we do not provide maid service. In other words, please leave "The Mountain Top Oasis" just as when you arrived except for making the bed as we will take care of it. Please clean, dry and put away all dishes used along with turning off lights and heaters prior to leaving for the day, as this will help keep our costs down. No drugs or overnight guests; no exceptions! Please send us a message upon your departure.
Dan and I bought our first home near Yosemite a little over 12 years ago in hopes of retiring here one day. We made that home our permanent residence in 2007. We recently purchased our second home in hopes of sharing our "little piece of paradise" with a variety of world travelers. Dan is currently retired and enjoys golfing, working in the yard, and taking care of me. When Dan retired I went back to college and recently earned a bachelors degree and teaching credential. I currently work as a high school teacher as well as a preschool director. Both, Dan and I can honestly say, "We are living our dream!" When I am not at work, we love spending time in Yosemite, small day trips in our roadster, the beauty and serenity of the great outdoors and of course we love a little red wine every now and then. We look forward to getting to know you as you enjoy a nice quiet and relaxing time in our beautiful suite, currently known as "The Mountain Top Oasis."
