“Perfect Hosts for Yosemite”
Reviewed September 30, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This was the best place we stayed during our 3 week vacation in California. And Gary and Rickey were the best hosts. We (and our 5 year old daughter) enjoyed it very much and we would like to highly recommend it to you if you are visting Yosemite. The location is perfect, the apartment very clean and very well equipped and the hosts are extremely nice people. We will for sure come again.

“Perfect”
Reviewed August 18, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

The apartment is really nice and VERY clean. It is equipped with everything you can think of, from snacks to toothpaste. The apartment is about 45 drive away from Yosemite, but the drive is so scenic that time flies on the way there and back. Also, it was nice to stay out of Yosemite and have some peace at night, as the valley can get very crowded.
Gary and Rickey were extremely nice and helpful. Probably the best guests we've ever had. They gave us advice on trails, drive back to SF, things to see in SF, places to eat in Mariposa, etc. Their knowledge of the area was extremely helpful. If you love outdoors and hiking, Yosemite is the place to go.

We stayed at Juniper Crest for a whole week and we loved it. The place was perfectly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We lacked for nothing! The same is true for the outdoor area, including the pool, the BBQ, the patio, the deckchairs etc. Pictures and descriptions agree with reality. Gary and Rickey were so friendly and attentive hosts, perfectly organized and helpful. They have gathered a lot of useful information about Yosemite NP as well as the local surrounding. Gary knows a lot of handy tips that he shares with us. We would definitely come back!

“An awesome place to stay on your Yosemite vacation”
Reviewed July 17, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Gary and Ricki were wonderful hosts. The accommodations were perfect for a family of 4-5. Everything was extremely clean and well kept. We couldn't have been more comfortable. We would definitely go back. Highly recommended!

“Can't beat Juniper Crest”
Reviewed July 8, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Great hosts, homey place to stay. Gary and Rickey were the best. Gary even let us know about a shortcut to Sentinel Dome, it saved us over half the hike. They are the nicest hosts we've had yet. The guest apartment was like being at home. It was our first time in something other than a hotel room and we enjoyed it very much. I'd recommend it to everyone.

“Best hosts ever!”
Reviewed July 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

If you are visiting Yosemite I can´t think of a better place to stay.
Gary and Rickey are the best hosts you can think of and their place is supernice and cosy.
It´s a 40 min drive to the park, it´s a nice scenic drive so that´s ok.
The rooms, bathroom and kitchen is well equiped and very clean, everything you need and more is there.
This was one of the best places we stayed at our 3 week trip in California!
If you think it looks nice on the pictures, it´s way better in reality :)
