À propos de ce logement
Quality brand new home, clean, well-maintained, spacious. Full kitchen, nice bathrooms, comfortable King beds. Top two levels of three level duplex (access is at street level)
Royal Retreat is a brand-new two-bedroom mountain home inside Yosemite Park gates, completed in May 2012. With two king-bedrooms, it is perfect for two couples.
You can feel the care that went into each detail, from the rustic Shaker-style cabinets and doors to the handmade wooden staircase. One of the unique features is you do not climb stairs to access the front door. This is rare in our area; most rentals are on a hill, and you haul your bags up flights of stairs to enter. In addition, Royal Retreat's guest bedroom, which boasts a king-size bed, is on the first floor with a bathroom right across the hall, making it perfect for guests who are less mobile.
In terms of amenities, Royal Retreat offers luxury upon luxury. The home is fully equipped - towels, linens, dishes, cookware. You only need to bring yourself, your food/drink, and a good time!
Royal Retreat offers beautiful views of the forest from its rooms. The living room and loft are especially relaxing; both receive ample sunlight and showcase peaceful views of the trees surrounding the property. If you want to grill, the covered deck gives you the luxury of being outside, while still providing shelter from the sun or rain.
We have another unit on site-Serenity Suite, directly below Royal Retreat. All of your space is separate and private including your parking area, entrance and deck. You will not need to interact with other guests, but consideration for those living below you is appreciated (please no plans for getting up at 3 am every day for cooking--yes, this happened-and not sure how that qualifies as "vacation"!)
We are sorry - there is no TV service or reliable cell phone service in this area or at our home. We do have internet with WiFi (see other section for internet limitations). We have a video library.
We welcome children and all guests must be declared at booking. Guests 6 months and older count as children towards the guest count. 1 guest under 6 months can be added to the 4 person maximum, and at no charge, but must be declared to us at the time of booking.
Rates quoted already include 11% tax.

Cell Service: There is NO cell service at our home.
Internet Connection: We live in a remote area. Internet is limited to Satellite. NOT unlimited data. To make the system work great for e-mail and web browsing, we have limited all other uses. Full policy available on request.
Our connection cannot stream media. FaceTime, Voice Over IP, social media sites, and all similar high volume data uses are blocked. You will not find another vacation home in this region that offers more robust service. If you need a more robust connection, you will need to stay in a hotel.

We require a signed rental contract and agreement upon booking which has our policies, including rules for our fire-risk area, food storage, and other details.
This is an approximate example of that agreement:

NO charcoal briquettes, NO lighter fluid allowed. The home is located in an area of extreme fire danger with no reasonable expectation of successful response by firefighters, so fire prevention is very important. Violations could result in immediate eviction and/or charges for cleaning or damage.
3)Animals are not allowed inside the home or on the premises. If you have significant allergies to any specific animals, please let us know so that we can confirm whether our house will meet your needs. Violations will result in immediate eviction and/or charges for unregistered guest, cleaning and/or damage.
4)Damage/Cleaning Deposit: Cleaning fee covers “normal cleaning". Deposit is authorized on your card by AirBNB. We will bill you (using dispute resolution tool) for unreasonable cleaning or damage. You can avoid that by meeting the following:
-Follow posted checkout instructions
-Place all debris, rubbish and discards in designated waste containers
-Place all soiled dishes in dishwasher and run
-No linens or furnishings are lost or damaged
-Leave the property in the same condition it was in when you arrived.
-Let us know immediately of any problems, breakages so we can work out repair details.
5)Maximum Occupancy: Number of guests limited to four (4) persons, any ages. One infant under 6 months may be added at no charge if declared before booking. We count guests 6 months old- 2 years old as children. Declare number of guests when booking. Renters will be charged for unregistered guests ($150/person/night).
Only registered guests are allowed on the property. No parties.
6)No On-site Staff: No daily maid service. Linens and bath towels are included in the rental. Please do not remove any linens from the home. Consider bringing beach towels for beach activities.
7)Parking: Please park only in the designated parking for Royal Retreat, which is the two vehicle paved pad directly in front of the home or on the road way near this parking. Do not park on the pad farther away, adjoining the stairs to Serenity Suite which is reserved for that unit. We will provide snow removal on your arrival day.
8)This is an Upper Unit: Please be aware that there is a rentable home below Royal Retreat which may be occupied at any time during your visit.
9)Weather and Road Closures: Access to the home is at 6,000 feet elevation. Please be aware that SNOW can occur at any time, roads may be closed or require 4 wheel drive or chains.

Please review AirBNB detail on cancellation policies. If you wish to cancel/change only “part" of your reservation, we may or may not agree to the change, on a case-by-case basis, at our option.
11)There are occasional power or water outages in the neighborhood as it is a rural area. We regret any inconvenience, but are not responsible for failures caused by the county system.
12)We offer satellite internet for e-mail and basic web browsing. Due to data caps, we have blocked high data uses, including streaming media, social media, file sharing, online storage, etc. Full policy is posted in the home or is available upon request. Data is NOT UNLIMITED.

We look forward to hosting you or staying at your place on our travels.
