“Amazing location, declining amenities”

This was our second year staying in this house. Hans has always been great to work with, responsive and helpful. We would still be sitting in the dark in the living room if he hadn't tipped us off to the obscure location of the light switch. Yosemite West is wonderful, and we appreciate the laid back atmosphere of the house. However, I felt like the house wasn't in very good condition - more broken items than last year. The screen door to the beautiful deck was missing, letting in lots of bugs or making the living room stuffy, and several other windows didn't move very well. Some kitchen cabinet doors were very grimy and if you care about things like clean sponges, non-ancient pillows, or lids for your pans, you're out of luck. We did our part to improve things for future guests, sharpening knives and buying a new sponge and tinfoil down in Yosemite Valley but lots of things you can't get nearby, and shouldn't be the responsibility of guests. I would NOT recommend this house for small children, given issues like an exposed outlet (no coverplate) in LR for the past 2 years, and easy splinters from the upstairs walls. We did have a young infant with us last year with no problems, but now that he's mobile it would not have been safe. The upstairs bathroom is falling apart, though the downstairs one is great. This house is all about location, and it has its own charm. However, we expected these basic items to be taken care of.

I was planing trip to Yosemite trip for long time and start looking for place to stay at Yosemite West so after searching clicked on rental by Hans Florine,put deposit down and waited for my trip.Hans called me that he overlapped dates and offered different rental,I did not tell my family that because they would freak out :)So I took that offer and I can tell you that Hans - the most trusted person I never met,the place we stayed was amazing and Yosemite trip spectacular ,he answers all emails,all details can be worked out too.I will come back with my sons to hike Half Dome one day so will call him again- 1000% recommended !!!!!

“Great deal for family of six with a bonus - Convenient Location”

We enjoyed the stay at the basecamp. It was great to have a convenient place in the park, because we were cramming our visit into a few days, so we were up early and back late. Base Camp is a good name as the place is somewhat rustic, but we knew that up front and there were no surprises. I appreciated the kitchen supplies provided as we had cooked in several nights to keep our costs down. The teenagers appreciated the games provided, especially monopoly. We were happy with place and location,
