Bring the WHOLE family, or even multiple families, and enjoy this recently renovated home in Oakhurst. Located on the backside of a very quiet community of custom built homes, you're less than 10 minutes from all the grocery markets and main part of town. Drive 20 minutes east to Bass Lake, or head 30 minutes north to the south entrance of beloved Yosemite! Tons and tons of space and features will give you a wonderful place to create many family memories.

Features of this home include:
Over 3500 sq ft. Sits on 2.5 acres to spread out and give everyone their own space, while remaining intimate enough for gatherings.

Explore 150 ft of river frontage on the Fresno River. 
Large outdoor gazebo next to a jacuzzi.
Jacuzzi is professionally serviced (which is rare in our area) and available year round
Your own private 1/4 sized regulation basketball court.
Large, mostly updated kitchen that is fully stocked to cook almost any meal.
2 full sized refrigerators for all your food/drink storage.
Game room with arcade games, air hockey, skee-ball, cornhole, indoor basketball AND foosball table.
Smart TV's in EVERY BEDROOM (login to your own Netflix, Hulu, etc.)
5 Burner BBQ Grill
EV Charger, Level 2
Multiple outdoor seating areas and decks overlooking an amazing backyard built specifically for entertaining

Please note that the wood burning firepit outside has been replaced with a propane firepit, as wood is not allowed most of the year and propane is.

Please note: There are no lifeguards on duty for the Fresno River and hot tub.  By booking this property, guests acknowledge they will use at their own risk. Indoor fireplaces AND outdoor fire pits are NOT allowed during county-wide burn bans, which often occur in the summer and fall months. This is due to heightened fire risk in the area at those times. Outdoor BBQ grills and propane fire pits are allowed year-round. Please do not light any fire at the property during burn ban season, or 911/Sheriff's Department will be called out. Thank you for helping us keep our area safe from wildfire devastation.

Welcome Guide- One week prior to arrival, a digital welcome book will be sent via email and text message. It will have your special door code, address, items provided, and much more great info to help you prepare for your trip!

Access to Yosemite and Nearby Attractions- Yosemite National Park, like many others across the United States, has implemented a reservation system in recent years to manage visitor numbers effectively. We highly recommend that visitors planning a trip to Yosemite stay informed by regularly checking the National Parks websites and affiliated sources for any updates regarding the reservation system. While we strive to provide our guests with an exceptional experience, it's important to note that access to Yosemite or nearby attractions cannot be guaranteed, especially during peak seasons. By staying informed and flexible, visitors can better navigate their travel plans and make the most out of their trip to this beautiful region.

Kitchen- The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, cookware, cups, silverware, and  more! Our housekeeping team leaves out salt, pepper, and a can of cooking spray. Friends, family, and other guests sometimes leave spices, aluminum foil or ziploc bags at the home. You are most welcome to use any of these items, but if something is particularly crucial to the success of your meals, we do recommend bringing it along with you.

Linens- Our vacation homes are some of the few in the Yosemite area to use professionally laundered linens. All linens are professionally serviced for each and every reservation. The linens are washed in commercial grade washers with stronger hypoallergenic detergent than you would find in a residential washer. All linens are then pressed with an iron at 300° F, vs. a standard home dryer that only reaches 160°.  You are not likely to find this level of service in other vacation homes.

**Bunkbeds- Please note that due to California Worker’s Compensation restrictions, housekeeping will not be able to make the top bunk prior to arrival. Fresh sheets, bedding, and pillows are absolutely provided for it though!

Fireplace/Firepits- Kindly note that any type of wood burning is typically unavailable in the summer and fall months, due to heightened fire risk in the area. Propane firepits and BBQ grills are usable year round. Since the property has an adequate heating system, firewood is not provided. You are most welcome to bring any for your own ambiance if you wish, or you may use any that might be at the property left by friends, family, or other guests.

Hot Tub- There is no lifeguard on duty for the hot tub. Please use at your own risk. We kindly ask that you shower prior to entering the hot tub.

Pet Friendly- Small Pets under 30lbs considered (Pets must be house trained and pet security deposit may apply) Please let us know if you would like to bring along your dog, and a $50 pet fee per pet will be requested. This $50 covers the entire stay, and is not a per day charge. There is a 2 dog maximum at the property. Please do not allow your dog on the furniture or leave your dog in the home unattended and use a leash when outside, per county ordinance.

Parking- There is enough parking for 7-8 cars at this property. The garage is unavailable to guests, as it is used for owner storage.  We appreciate you not exceeding the maximum parking limit.  Many of the local roads are privately owned and privately maintained. Please be mindful to obey speed laws and drive slowly in residential neighborhoods!

Early or Late Check-ins- Early check ins are often difficult for our team to accommodate. If you would like to check in early, please reach out to us after 2PM on the day of your arrival so we can check with our team. If you need guaranteed early check in, we recommend booking the night before your arrival so that you may check in as early as you wish. For checkout, most vacation homes have a 10AM check out in our area. We provide an 11AM checkout, and unfortunately can rarely offer a later checkout.

Occupancy- Maximum occupancy of 16 guests regardless of age. Infants are included in the total. This is strictly enforced. No having events/weddings/large dinner gatherings/guests over just to visit.

Security Cameras- There are external only cameras on the premises that face certain entrance points of the home.

Chains- California Highway Patrol and the National Park Service may require chains in wintery/snowy/icy conditions. Please ensure you are bringing a vehicle and necessary equipment capable of navigating in these conditions.

No Smoking- The Smoke Remediation Fee will be a minimum of $500 for smoking in the house and could be higher depending on the extent of the damage.

Insurance- Travel Insurance is provided as an option during the checkout process. Please note that as hosts, we cannot protect your trip from flight delays, illnesses, weather, job loss, or other circumstances that may prevent you from making your trip. We truly wish we could! We STRONGLY suggest purchasing some type of Travel Insurance so that you may protect your vacation investment from unforeseen circumstances that may prevent you from making your trip. It's a nominal cost that can absolutely pay off!

Mail- Due to locked neighborhood mailboxes, we ask you not mail anything to the property. You are most welcome to mail items to our office (Love Yosemite! Vacation Rentals) in Oakhurst. Please reach out to us to make arrangements.

Calling Us- The phone number on our account does not receive text messages, because it is the number for our office.  Please call that number or send us a message if you need any help or have any questions!

Neighbors- Please do not trespass on the neighboring properties. We appreciate you respecting the local neighborhood!

Internet- Peer-to-peer (for example bit torrent) and downloads of copyrighted and illegal material are strictly forbidden by United States law and our internet provider actively monitor these activities. Guests are fully responsible for any illegal uploading or downloading of content and for other illegal activities. By agreeing to the House Rules, you agree to not perform any illegal activities using the home`s internet connection. Any copyright infringement by guest is subject to release of guest’s information to copyright holder.

Simple Checkout Instructions- 
1. Check out time is 11:00am, not 10am like most vacation homes up here!
2. Please do not do any laundry, it’s all professionally serviced off-site.
3. If you have time to start the dishwasher, that would be helpful but not necessary.
4. Kindly throw your garbage in the large green dumpster, located out by the parking!  It really helps us keep the critters away!
5. Most importantly, please return any furniture you may have moved during your stay.
P.S. Don’t forget to get a last minute photo or two with your family and friends before leaving!
