About Sharon Turney

Don Turney, a music producer, and Sharon Turney, a Children's Music Director, live in Hayward CA. They have two grown daughters, Kayla & Karissa and are very active at their church, 3Crosses of Castro Valley.

Why Sharon Turney chose Yosemite Area

Sharon and Don Turney designed 'The Escape' and had it built in 2006. It is managed by immediate family, not a property management company.

What makes this house unique

We chose this location because of the quiet neighborhood, and the proximity to close family and of course, Yosemite! Having the lake within walking distance is a great bonus as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner

You're not going to find a better rental and for the price. We chose the Escape after spending a few hours looking at the VRBO site. Sharon and her mother in law were really easy to work with, the place was everything as advertised and we had a great family reunion.

Pros: outdoor grilling and dining. Plenty of deck space for our entire family to be outside. Family room was spacious for all of us to relax. Beautiful nights to star gaze

We really had nothing to complain about and were able to enjoy the lake, Yosemite and the house. We will definitely recommend this to our friends and look forward to the next time we can return.

Great Get Away and a Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Sharon's place is beautiful and everything it was described as. The kitchen and living room were perfect for family dinners and relaxation and the back patio deck was a great place for us to have dinner in the woods. Sharon's place is up on the hillside of Pine Mountain Lake and it's a simple 2 minute drive to the lodge where you can take a water taxi to the main Marina which has a beach and boat/paddle board rentals and tasty foods. We had a lot of fun at the Marina. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and we had fun playing ping pong in the garage. Pine Mountain Club is a perfect location to get to Stanislaus National Park and Yosemite.

I would definitely bring the family back. My daughters want to come back and so do I.

Thanks Sharon!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Or family of 5 had a great time. The Escape was beautiful and clean, and felt very safe on the community. We spent our days in Yosemite which was absolutely stunning! Grocery store was not too far and had everything we needed. Thank you for starting our California vacation off right!

Amazing house

  • 5 of 5

The Escape is an amazing house, very clean and tidy. The kitchen area is very spacious. The community food is a nice touch also the supply of toilet rolls, washing powder and rubbish bags is very handy. The amenities on Pine Mountain Lake are wonderful the Golf Course is exceptional, the community pool is very clean and the area around the marina and lake great for swimming, kayaking and fishing. Just one slight downside to the house when you pay for the linens service, I would of expected the beds to have been made up, and not to have had to start making beds up upon arrival. This said we truly enjoyed our stay and enjoyed our day in Yosemite where we were lucky enough to see two bears.

Spacious, comfortable home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at "The Escape!" The house is beautiful, spacious, and very comfortable. All communication was prompt and clear. It was a lovely home away from home. Our group of 7 spanned ages 8 - 74 and everyone had a happy, comfortable stay. General comments:

-Our goal was to visit Yosemite and we ended up spending a couple of days in the park. It seemed liked Groveland was about as close as one could get without staying in the park, but it was still at least an hour drive to the Valley each way. Yosemite is definitely worth the trip, though.

-The house is located in a resort area. There are 3 beaches and lots of other amenities. Our kids loved the beaches. We didn't access any of the other resort amenities. Our stay was rather short and we were a little unclear as to what was open to renters (as opposed to the home-owners).

-The house had just about everything we could want: comfortable beds, wifi, a grill, a lovely porch from which we watched wild turkeys and deer, TV, games, a beautiful kitchen with everything we needed to prepare meals. The only thing that wasn't there - and this struck me as strange - was a hair-dryer.

This was a fantastic place to stay. I would give it 5 stars if linens were included in the rental (because we flew to CA it just wasn't reasonable for us to pack our own sheets and towels) and, again, the hair-dryer.

Very nice vacation house. With 102°F outside, more shade on the balcony would make it perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Sharon, we enjoyed our stay at your property this summer and look forward to more in the future. The house is very well designed, spacious, clean, and in a very good shape both inside and outside. Having a good piano during this vacation was a special blessing for us.

Thank you very much.
