Overview

About the property

Beautifully remodeled chalet with king, queen and day bed. A/C, HD TV & Internet

The Yosemite Paradise Chalet is the perfect getaway for Yosemite Park. After nine months of renovations that completed in January 2015, everything is new, fresh and clean. The Chalet is a private home in a unique community INSIDE the gates of Yosemite Park with easy access to the Park attractions. It is located near the Glacier Point road and HWY 41, the main road in the park.

This is a beautiful 2-story home with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, loft, 2 decks, a full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, fresh paint and new furniture.

The kitchen is equipped with all the major appliances, dinnerware and organic supplies you will need for a quick snack or gourmet meal. We have stocked organic fair-trade coffee and teas and over 30 organic spices, in addition to a large microwave, quiet dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, blender, stand mixer, food processor, slow cooker, fine cutlery, 5-burner gas stove with custom griddle, convection oven and a large refrigerator with in-door ice and chilled water dispensers. A reverse osmosis water filter and LED lighting complete this luxury vacation home.

The Chalet has full house air conditioning, remote control heating, Dish HD TV and satellite internet. We have stocked the home with games, books and park information. The covered rear deck is tucked away in the back to provide you a quiet and private place to relax and enjoy the birds, animals and forest views. The front deck is large with chairs, tables and special lounge chairs for children. A gas barbecue is provided for your grilling pleasure.

The bedrooms are furnished with quality mattresses, linens and plenty of storage. There are remote controls for AC, heat, ceiling fans and even a heated bed cover for your personal comfort.

There is a king bed with day bed and full closet in the main floor bedroom. The 2nd floor bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, dresser and windows with forest views.

Each bathroom is stocked with organic soap, shampoo and conditioner, and has a Jacuzzi jetted tub to help you relax after a long day of hiking and exploring the wonders of Yosemite.

The Chalet is finished with eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, a modern color palette, scenic artwork, LED lighting with dimmers, new windows with forest views and new mahogany doors throughout the home. All the furnishing are new and designer quality.

This is the perfect getaway for two couples, a small family or friends in search of a new Yosemite adventure.

About Jeff and Melissa

We are a young family with two beautiful girls who love to explore the wonders of Yosemite. I work long days in the medical research field, my wife is busy with the girls and we split our time between San Jose and Yosemite.

Jeff and Melissa purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Jeff and Melissa chose Yosemite Area

We had explored Yosemite Park for years before finding the Chalet in 2014. The house was a diamond in the rough. After a year of extensive remodeling we have created our dream vacation home that we are proud to share with travelers to the Park.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalet is a private home on a large lot in Yosemite West. This special community is located inside the gates of the Park at 6000' elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

We're the perfect location to base your exploration of Yosemite. It's 25 minutes north to Yosemite Valley, 25 minutes east to Glacier Point, 15 minutes to Badger Pass and 25 minutes south to Wawona. The three main attractions of Yosemite are easy and scenic drives from the Chalet.

We are one of the few properties to have air conditioning to help beat the summer heat.

Comfy beds, nice kitchen amenities, games

  • 4 of 5

Beds here were outstanding; comfortable mattresses. Even the twin day bed was comfortable. Very nice having our little one in the same room, yet separate bed vs a cot because our son knows the difference in quality.

We enjoyed scrabble and the puzzles. Kitchen had everything we needed.

Wished we had full access to WiFi, but amount of data was limited. Also would be have been nice to have washer-dryer access since there are no washer-dryer places close by.

For some reason, we had no hot water when we arrived. The water heater was behind a locked door. We had to call the property manager to light the pilot light.

Really enjoyed this place. Close to Yosemite Valley.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the Yosemite Paradise Chalet. We appreciate your many kind observations. Regarding the WiFi, our website does explain that there is a daily limit of 400MB, although data is unlimited from midnight to 5 AM every day. The only internet provider in the remote mountains of Yosemite is satellite internet, and the service provider imposes bandwidth limits. We regret the inconvenience of the problem with the water heater, but we would like to point out that the property manager was able to the go the Paradise Chalet and resolve the issue within an hour of being made aware of the problem. There is a washer/dryer on site at the Paradise Chalet, but its use is normally restricted to guests staying one week or longer. If guests staying less than one week contact the property managers with a request to use the laundry, limited access is provided. Once again, we thank you for staying with us and for your comments.

PERFECT PARADISE CHALET!

  • 5 of 5

This place is a gem, in every way. I travel a ton for work and practically live at hotels 80%+ of the time, and the Yosemite Paradise Chalet (YPC) was a lovely getaway that exceeded my expectations! So impressed! The owners' dedication and TLC to every detail in the cabin is apparent.

We visited during winter (end of Feb) to catch Firefall. It was pretty cold and the neighborhood was covered in snow. Even snowed the last day I was there!

PROS:

-Cabin location: Very close to Badger Pass and key Yosemite sites, just off of HWY41

-Interior: Beautiful! The ATTENTION TO DETAIL at this place was astonishing! The kitchen is better equipped and organized than my dream kitchen! (no joke, there was even a kitchenaid mixer stocked for guest use; an item literally on my wishlist). There's A/C, heater, wifi, a land line, a fireplace, jets in the bathroom tubs w/epsom salt (I took a bath - super relaxing!), fully equipped kitchen with pots, pans, cooking spices (organic), baking trays, silverware, the list goes on...you name it–it’s probably there!

-Everything felt clean, cozy and high quality. That’s really important to me. I appreciated that all products offered are ORGANIC (incl. coffee, tea, and the bathroom amenities) and high quality (plush bathroom towels, 2ply toilet paper, etc.). There's a bookshelf full of games, puzzles, books and a TV w/DVD collection (great for kids!)

-Exterior: Deck in the back w/BBQ (kitchen even has proper steak knives) and cute porch in the front w/lounge chairs (good for summer). Also good for winter - we used the porch to dance in the snow!

-FEW STAIRS: Driveway takes you up to the top with only a few stairs to the door. This was a BLESSING in comparison to the other cabins we saw in the neighborhood (w/40+ stairs). Wouldn’t want to haul my luggage up ALL that!

Tips:

-Bring plenty of food/snacks. The kitchen makes it so easy to prepare quick meals. Much easier than having to drive out somewhere in search of a restaurant and mediocre food.

-Winter weather in Yosemite can be unpredictable. It snowed and I’m glad we rented an AWD SUV plus tire chains. Make sure you plan properly! (snow shoes, warm clothing)

-WIFI wasn’t working during stay (for entire neighborhood, not just YPC). Be prepared for unpredictable coverage in mountains. It was hard at first, but it ended up being WONDERFUL to plug out completely from the world. (but plan accordingly)

Our trip was PERFECT! Can't wait to come back. Thanks Yosemite Paradise Chalet!

Perfect in any way!!

  • 5 of 5

I was amazed how everything was so well organized. I do rent my property as well and I'm a proud "neat freak". Well, I have learned new things in this home away from home. All litle details are thought out. Nice towells, nice linens, books, guides, spices. All well explained. You don't waste anytime figuring things out.

we had a wonderful time and the location couldn't be any better as it is inside of the park.

If we ever come back, it sure would be here. I totally recomend this place for anyone.

Thanks.

Wonderful! Comfortable and classy.

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this home is! I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone. It's obvious the owners and caretakers are very thoughtful about the comfort of their guests. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything from cutting boards to cutlery to toddler dishes to foil to spices. Definitely the best kitchen of any home we've rented - making Thanksgiving dinner here was a joy. And there are many other touches like heating pads for the beds, plenty of fresh towels and soaps, and even a charming souvenir coffee cup for us to take home. The location is great. It is quite high up though, so tire chains, etc are a must in the winter months. We would also recommend that guests stock up on groceries before entering Yosemite. Some of the restaurants are closed for the winter season, and, while nice, Yosemite Village most likely does not have everything you might like to have.
