“Clean and functional lodging for a family of five”
Reviewed 23 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Perfect for our family of five with three grown boys. Our goal was to hike and crash at night and the hut was great for that. We were even able to grill steaks as a reward for hiking to the top of Upper Yosemite Falls.

Bring personal items like shampoo and perishable foods. Otherwise, everything was available in the cupboards. There were even plenty of coffee filters if you're someone that has to have a cup of coffee in the morning (bring the coffee).

Hans was responsive and helpful. Everything was as he described.

We hope to stay again and conquer another of the great hikes from the valley.

“Clean getaway close to Yosemite Valley!”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My husband and I just returned from visiting Yosemite in celebration of our 2nd anniversary! We had a blast and everything is beautiful!

The apartment was very clean and in a great location! The house is cozy and has a comfy bed. It's inside the park and only a short 30 minute drive into the valley. It was really nice and convenient to explore all day and return "home" to cook dinner/relax and not worry about having to drive in/out of the park each day which can take up to 1-2 hours. It's also very close to the entrance of Glacier Point which was great for hikes (Panorama Trall is awesome!) and for visiting at sunset (must do!). Just be ready for a steep driveway when you return!

I would have given a 5 rating, but there were a few improvements the rental could make. First, the Internet is pretty sparse. Granted you're in the woods and it's nice to be disconnected so I wasn't expecting much, but it would have been helpful to look up hiking trails or directions at the house to plan for the next day. Not a total let down, but just be aware that you won't be getting work done if you plan on it.

Second, the unit could use a few more pots/pans and utensils. You're paying a decent amount per night for the option of using the apartment kitchen to cook instead of eating out. It would be nice to have some additional things available for use (i.e.: more than one bowl, grill brushes/tongs since everything was plastic, etc). Spending $100 at Walmart/Big Lots/Target to grab a few more pots, dishes, and utensils would go a long way!

(PS - If you plan to stock up on food for your stay, the market in Yosemite Village is good and does not totally overcharge. But if you can stop at a grocery store outside of the park, I highly recommend it!)

Finally, the dishwasher did not work. We had ran it the night before we were leaving, but nothing was clean when we opened it. Had we known from the beginning it would have been fine and we just would have washed our dishes after use. It was just unfortunate to waste water to run it and then have to hand wash everything the next day.

Overall, our stay was great and Yosemite was stunningly beautiful as always! The apartment was nice and had a great location so I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others! Just a few improvements would make this place a 5 rating!

“The hut needs some updates....”

This property is in a nice location inside the park. However, we did not find it especially clean, especially under the couch (which you will see if you are using it for a pull out bed). The toilet makes a loud noise every time someone sits on it. The faucet in the kitchen doesn't work properly which was inconvenient for cooking. The sheets and pillows are worn out and the room was really warm with no air conditioning. (Thank goodness for the two fans that were provided) The curtains in the bedroom were very thin and a motion detecting light shines right inside the bedroom every time something passes by it, which lights up the entire room all through the night. Also, the screen door does not work well and the deck/grill was not clean. We were not expecting fancy, but hoping for at least cleaner and things in good condition.

“Great location, awesome facilities for a family”
Reviewed 29 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We stayed in the lower unit with our two young daughters (2 and 5yo). The unit was very spacious and the kitchen was fully stocked with cookware to allow us to prepare some decent family meals (after being on the road and eating in hotels this was a huge bonus!).

The Yosemite West area is well located to the park, it took us about 20mins to get into the valley each morning (finding a park did prove difficult on the weekend, weekdays were fine).

It would be great if there were a washer and dryer as there seems to be a laundry cupboard area which was empty, this would make it perfect for families who are travelling around california (just a suggestion, certainly not a deal breaker!)

I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

“Fun and Cozy little get away”
Reviewed 13 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

The Alpine Hut was very cute and cozy for our family of 4. We stayed in the unit below and the first night the group above us was quite noisy which was a bummer but then they left and it was nice and quiet. So if you are only renting the lower unit be aware that you can definitely hear the footsteps of those above you. Other than that, we loved the patio for a BBQ after exploring Yosemite and coming to our little Alpine Hut for some relaxation time. The place was very clean but the best part about it I have to admit is working with someone like Hans. He did everything he could do make sure our family vacation was great and when things went wrong, he did what he could to make it right. That was by far a highlight because he didn't make you feel like you were complaining, he just did his best to make it a great experience. We would stay here again for sure for all reasons stated above and even with some noise from above.
