Have you ever wanted to stay on top of a mountain with amazing sunrises every morning and breath-taking sunsets every evening? Look no further! The Mountain Top Oasis is a tranquil private 9 acre retreat nestled in the oak trees close to Yosemite where you can also enjoy star gazing from the comfort of your private courtyard. Studio has a small kitchenette (great for left-overs) and a comfy and luxurious king size mattress; feels like your sleeping on a cloud.

The space

Newly Remodeled (April 1, 2017) New carpet, paint and beautiful crown molding. "The Mountain Top Oasis" is conveniently located in Mariposa and is the shortest route to Yosemite Valley (38 miles) as compared to other two entrances into Yosemite Valley (Oakhurst to Yosemite Valley is 47 miles and Groveland to Yosemite Valley is 50 miles). During your 38 mile travel to Yosemite National Park, enjoy the scenic drive along the Merced River and through the canyon. "The Mountain Top Oasis" is a beautiful 3300 square foot custom built home located on top of a mountain on 9 acres with 360 degree views boasting sunrise views looking toward Yosemite from your courtyard and sunset views of the mountains to the west every evening from the patio, studio dinette or your private courtyard; all for you to relax, rejuvinate and enjoy after a long day's hike in Yosemite. We are only 4 miles to the thriving and exciting gold mining town of Mariposa; we will share with you the local's scenic short cut. The Mountain Top Oasis is a two story home in which the courtyard studio apartment is located behind the garage, entirely blocked off from the rest of the house for total seclusion. The courtyard is private for your enjoyment only; private entrance, private bathroom, private living space, private kitchenette (microwave, coffee pot, toaster, small refrigerator), and private courtyard. There are no shared spaces within your studio apartment or the private courtyard; all is for your pleasure. You are welcome to enjoy the surrounding property and all the outdoor amenities. Our property is private and secluded without neighbors. Come and enjoy the serenity and beauty of "The Mountain Top Oasis"!

Soak up some warm California sun in our beautiful courtyard and enjoy the gorgeous sunrise from your room. Or enjoy our 'winter wonderland' surrounded by the beauty of nature. Ski at our very own Badger Pass located inside Yosemite National Park. The beauty and serenity on the slopes is breath-takingly magnificent! Certainly a site to mark off your 'bucket list'.

Dan and Penny's place exceeded our expectations. It was such a delight to come home to such a serene and beautiful room after a long day of hiking in Yosemite. They made sure to provide snacks, beverages, and amenities to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We would definitely come back to this place when we visit again in the future. Thank you for the wonderful stay and warm hospitality!

Beautiful location and great place to stay. Perfect for a trip to Yosemite. It was neat to hear an owl at night and wake up to birds in the morning. Wish we could have stayed more than one night to explore the area. Highly recommend!

While I never met Dan & Penny since I arrived a little later than anticipated, they left the apartment open for me. It was just as pictured and as all the prior reviews stated. Beautifully set upon a mountaintop and located just outside the quaint downtown of Mariposa and smooth drive into Yosemite, it was just what was needed after a long day of driving and hiking. The bed... ohhhh so soft and the amenities were excellent, as well, between the orange juice, granola and fresh ground coffee in the morning... <3 all that said, it was the night time sky watching and morning sunrise that really tugged at my soul. Awe inspiring! Thank you!

Dan and Penny's Mountaintop Oasis was very homey and a perfect size for what we were looking for. It was private, clean, and had many thoughtful touches. We truly enjoyed our stay and would absolutely stay again if we ever make another trip to Yosemite.

Dan and Penny are wonderful hosts! The room was clean and cozy, and the bed was probably the most comfortable bed we've ever slept on. The sunsets every night were amazing! It was the perfect place to "set up camp" for day trips to Yosemite.
