“The OK, The Bad, and The Batty!”
Reviewed 4 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Location is acceptable, but much further from the Valley and all activity than we'd been led to believe when making the reservation.

The log home itself is very rustic, including a bat flying out of the closet on the 2nd night of our stay!

We were moved to another location - but not without several phone calls and much flack from a difficult woman manning the phones. Bert and Paul couldn't have been nicer, but she (who hung up on me before I could get her name) was not what one would characterize as guest-friendly.

The home's lay-out is fine, but basics like bed-sheets, kitchen sponges, and towels are old, grungy, and deeply in need of replacement. Dishwasher broken in 1st home, toilet broke in 2nd; leaving one to question Yosemite West Rentals' commitment to upkeep.

We were not made aware of the fact that there's no cable, wi-fi, or even basic ATT connectivity. You're really in the woods! Granted, i didn't ask - but these days, it's most unusual, and we'd have appreciated a head's-up - so let this serve!

All in all, a sub-par home away from home.

Being in a natural mountain forest area, wildlife exists -- but usually is not found in our accommodations. Occasionally native fauna will be found in a unit, but generally because someone left a door open (windows are screened) and the wildlife entered. It is important to maintain no human contact with native fauna; never feed or encourage wildlife to either come near you or to enter the homes. Staff will remove those which do intrude -- when possible, guests can be relocated to another home (as was done for these guests).

Reservations staff advises all guests we are a 20-minute drive north to Yosemite Valley, 20-minute drive south to Wawona, and 15-20 min. drive east to Badger Pass Ski Area in winter (variable time depending upon chain requirements); we are a 30-minute drive north to Yosemite Village, 30-min. drive south to Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, and 30-min. drive east to Washburn Point and Glacier Point, or 20-min. drive east to trailhead for Taft Point, The Fissures, and Sentinel Dome.

TVs are described as satellite with DVD players. There is no cable service to our area -- nor does AT&T offer any internet lines (please feel free to let AT&T know you would like wi-fi service to be available at Yosemite West!). Guests inquiring about wi-fi are told to check with the Registrar for information on connecting to the satellite wi-fi at Yosemite West.

Dishwasher worked properly, once the correct button was pushed; toilet rod which broke after guests were in residence, was promptly replaced. Housekeeping staff checks many items (including dishwashers and toilets) for functionality when cleaning after and preparing for guest stays; there occasionally will be unforeseen lapses in equipment occuring during a guest stay; staff will respond quickly and remedy the situation.

We regret when guest expectations are not met; our guests usually are highly satisfied and return to stay again, year after year.
