This is our second time renting Coyle's cabin. We love the deck, big kitchen, collection of games and plenty of room for two families. We had a great time - but do feel the cabin needs a deep cleaning. Things are getting a little shabby.
We booked this home near the south gate of Yosemite and another home managed by the Redwoods, so we could have a family gathering. It has a large deck and lots of seating capacity. It has a large kitchen with most everything one might need, a BQ grill, and modern TV, blu-ray DVD player (but no DVDs), WIFI and a land line. None of our cell phones had a signal there, but we could sometimes text. We didn't use all the features. The house could use a book with all the manuals in it, some spare supplies like light bulbs handy, and a new stove. The gas stovetop is so old the markings have been rubbed off the controls and so it is hard to start without a big boom! of gas. A bit scary! It would have also been nice to have a complete set of glassware of at least one type. Parking is adequate, but there are a fair number of treestumps and rocks around, so one needs to be careful of that. Our fridge leaked the whole time we were there. One of the 2 ovens didn't have a functioning indicator light so we thought the oven wasn't working. The rooms are quiet and furnished with fans, and that was nice with the summer heat. Bathrooms were adequate. Bedcovers are a bit dated. Amenities are very basic. Everything seemed clean when we got there. Management at the Redwoods is good and helpful. The area is chock full of cabins, but it was very quiet and restful there, away from the hub-bub of Yosemite Valley. You can hear the Merced River rushing nearby and there is hiking nearby and because you are already in the park there is no need to go thru the gate to enjoy the valley features.
Our family of five found this cabin cozy comfortable and large enough for the four nights we were there. We enjoyed the location in the southern part of the park. The cabin was clean and had a bit of a retro feel to it perfect for our needs
