Nice, comfy room in a great location for those hoping to visit Yosemite or Stanislaus. The decor was charming and check-in was super easy.

Craig's place was nice, clean, quiet, and comfortable. The diner-themed decorations were unique and interesting! The only con is that it's not exactly an hour away from Yosemite as advertised... Maybe I misunderstood what was written on the listing, but it was more like an hour to the entrance and another 45mins-1 hr to the Valley floor. Otherwise, it was one of the cleanest and most well-maintained Airbnbs I've ever had the pleasure in staying.

Response from Craig:
Yosemite National Park entrance is just about an hour from us here in Sonora as our listing says. However...The park itself is huge! Those who have never been there are often surprised by how big it is! We could not possibly be responsible for where a guest chooses to go in the park, or how long they take to get there once they drive into the park! Every inch of Yosemite is beautiful!

Craig's place was very vintage and pretty! If you're into classic cars or cars in general, this place is DEFINITELY the place for you. Amenities are all there for you, shower, water, wifi, air conditioning, and a place to park! Just remember to close all the windows and turn that AC to the lowest temperature on those hot days. It's a nice cozy place for couples and solo travelers. All in all, great place to stay! Thank you, Craig and Dianne! :)

Perfect base camp to explore the national parks around. We had a good time. If you need to do a lot of work stuff or else, remember that the mobile service is not awesome in this area. But perfect to get away from all that though ;)

The apartment was clean and well maintained. We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed our time. The location was very convenient for Yosemite. Also, the instructions from the host made our 1 day Yosemite trip wonderful. Would definitely recommend if you're looking to have an efficient single day in Yosemite.
