“Amazing”
Reviewed 4 November 2018 for a stay in October 2018

I stayed here with a couple of my relatives and it was absolutely wonderful. Bob was a fantastic host and gave us some great tips on where to go in Yosemite and the surrounding areas. His place was very clean and accommodating for the three of us. The views were amazing as well. I would highly recommend this studio. Thank you again Bob for a wonderful stay.

“An amazing getaway with an amazing view!”
Reviewed 30 October 2018 for a stay in October 2018

My sister and I traveled from Michigan to visit Yosemite. Bob's rental was amazing. Very clean with an incredible view and conveniently located near Yosemite. Bob was super cool and accommodating. I travel a lot and prefer staying in privately owned places. Bob's place was by far the cleanest place I have ever stayed.

“Beautiful stay close to Yosemite Valley”
Reviewed 24 September 2018 for a stay in October 2017

We stayed at Bob's in the middle of our roadtrip around California last year, and it was hands down the best part of our trip!

Bob is an amazing host, and was very accommodating of our vague arrival time (having driven there direct from Vegas). We arrived quite late at night, exhausted from the drive, and the cosy apartment, with its pathway lit up with little lights was a very welcome sight! :)

The apartment was clean and cosy, open plan with a little kitchen, big bed and comfy sofa, dining table and TV, there was also a separate bathroom with a good shower, all beautifully finished. The nearest supermarket in North Fork is a short drive away and had everything you could need.

The views from Bobs garden are amazing, and we enjoyed drinks watching the sun set, barbecuing steak for our dinner!

When we met Bob the morning after we arrived he was very friendly and gave us lots of tips on where we could go to hike, and when would be best to go into Yosemite Valley (we left around 6am the other 2 mornings as it's around 1 hour 10ish from the house to the valley itself).

On our last night Bob invited us down to his house for some drinks with his girlfriend Jackie and we had a really wonderful time chatting and getting to know them both! We had an amazing stay and were very sad to leave Bob's apartment and Yosemite and would love to stay again in the future.

Thanks Bob, it was a pleasure meeting you and staying in your home! :)

P.s. We actually stayed at here in September last year but for some reason Trip Advisor won't let us pick that date for our review!

“Brilliant stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Bob's place is located just outside North Fork with great views from the garden and patio area. It is a fantastic location to unwind and relax. It is very private with private use of a BBQ, eating area and fire pit as well as the use of a pool.
The accommodation sleeps 2 comfortably with space for 1 on the couch and the use of an inflatable mattress if required. The kitchen is comprehensive and there are supermarkets nearby for supplies.
Bob is friendly and pleasant and he was able to give advice or where to go to visit and to eat.
Overall, a great experience, a pleasure to meet Bob and to stay at his place. I would highly recommend this location if you are in the area.

“Bob's Hideaway--A Wonderful stay to explore Yosemite South”
Reviewed 27 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

Bob constructed his wonderful home in a fabulous location about 50 minutes from the Southern Entrance to Yosemite. The apartment is on the second floor of his home and is immaculate. Bob is an artisan and it was a pleasure to see his precision and beautiful work. The home is located atop a hill overlooking a beautiful valley and it is lovely to sit in the lower patio, read and gaze at the scenery. We have been to Yosemite many times and but never to the southern part of the park near Wawona. Lots of things to do there and in the Bass Lake area--we had several beautiful waterfall/wildflower walks in and outside the park. It would be a bit far to go to the more majestic (and crowded) valley and northern area, but it could be done. A lovely place to stay!

Bob is an excellent host! The space is charming and cozy, and we appreciated the Roku TV after a long day in Yosemite. Beautiful views as well.
