A guest from san carlos, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in July, 2016 The house is well equipped & clean. The distance is almost 1.5 hours to Yosemite Valley. The only issue that we had was that the temperature that day was over 100 and they only had a wall unit A/C in the dining room & it was not sufficient to cool the whole house. They also have ceiling fans in each bedroom which helps a lot but not in 100 degree weather. Other than that, we had a nice time & enjoyed the house & the entire complex is beautiful. The price of the house is very reasonable but the fees that the management company charges, are very high. We paid $200 for 2 night but paid $250 in fees! total of over $450.
Neil V. from Sutton, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2016 We had a wonderful time in Groveland. The access to Yosemite was what we were looking for. We were never too concerned with the house in that it had to be clean (it was) and be comfortable (also true). We were disappointed as there were a couple of large stains which appeared fresh on the carpet in the living room. I'm not sure if they just were not able to clean these any more than what had been done, or if they were fairly fresh. Still, everything else was fine. It didn't impact our stay. We tend to be low maintenance and while I would recommend the home, it could have been cleaner.
A guest from PALO ALTO, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 It's a perfect place to escape the noise and bustle of a city life - cosy, quiet, and well-equipped with all things you need. We've been renting it many times.
A guest from West Palm Beach, FL recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2016 Beautiful location - peaceful and serene while still close to groceries and restaurants and not too far from Yosemite. It had the perfect woodsy cabin feel that we were looking for with plenty of space in the home and on the deck for our family. Our only suggestion would be to dust the interior and clean/sweep the deck more often. Some parts of the home were gathering dust and the deck tables/chairs didn't appear to have been cleaned in a long time. However, the kitchen and bathroom were clean and there were plenty of linens/towels. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Cheryl E. from Memphis, TN does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 It's true you get what you pay for, but in this case beware what you don't expect to pay for. The rental fee was modest as was the accommodation but the fees and taxes nearly doubled the cost of our 3 day stay.It's also worth noting despite the title this rental is not secluded.
Abhishek N. from Fremont, CALIFORNIA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2015 We stayed for two nights and really enjoyed the place. Yosemite National Park is just around 50 miles and we were able drove both days to the park. There is a lake nearby, a grocery store which is very close to the community. The property was as described, since it's old and haven't been remodeled it does have some wear and tear and not equipped with modern appliances but such things didn't bother us as everything was working as required. The house was pretty clean from inside but the deck was little dirty, would have been great if management at least dusted off the deck furniture. The bedrooms are of decent sizes (not huge). Overall we are satisfied !!
Maria V. from San Ramon, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 Good:Great deck and plenty of space outside, ample parking. Good number of dishes and cups. The best matresses and pillows i've had in rentals, very comfy. House was clean when we arrived.Bad:1. This is not a matter of taste for modern style, the house is simply very old and needs maintenance2. A/c either on or off by plugging into the outlet, no options or settings at all and it is simply not sufficient for the house, so it gets very hot3. Appliances are ancient and even microwave has dials. Electric Kettle is leaking.4. Pots and pans are not safe to use as the teflon is coming off in pieces.5. Shower-you will not be able to put kids under 10 under shower as its rusted and the stream is so strong it hurts.
Nicholas W. from Tulsa, OK recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2015 The cabin was absolutely perfect... after being in downtown San Diego it was nice to have a couple days of peace and quiet. Loved the location and loved the cabin!
Tony G. from San Bruno, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 With the exception of 2014, I have been staying here for 14 years straight. Unless there are major improvements, this is most likely the last time I stay here. The place is dated I can live with, no problem. But the cleanliness and privacy has gone downhill. Spider webs on the window sills and carpet smells musty. Neighbors raising a pack of dogs and barking all the time. The stench of animal feces getting caught in the air and drifting towards our deck. Yuck ! Thank goodness the temperature was mild as the air conditioning no longer works. Also, other suspicious activities going on there next door that I decline to mention. Sorry. Very disappointing after many, many, wonderful family vacations here to end this way.
A guest from San Leandro, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 Cozy small place and nice back porch. Appropriate for 6 people and nice large charcoal grill in the back. Overall pretty clean. Found some old towels in the bath shower and had to open up the windows to let out the old air... Otherwise a nice place and great deal.
A guest from Allen, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in June, 2015 Not a bad home, but the 7 sheet contract, paying extra for bed sheets, and mandatory trash and dishwasher duty (after I paid $145 for a maid), is too much.
MAREK B. from London, Greater London recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We stay in the house for 3 night. Everything was perfectly prepared for our stay. We find there what we need. Most of the time we spent in Yosemite area and was fantastic to come back on the evening to so comfortable house. Thank you very much. P.S.I gave only 3 stars for management because the keys you left in different key-box then declared in last e-mail, lucky that I had all e-mails with me and code to another box
Sahil P. from Chicago, IL does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2015 Several reviews here tell the true story about this rental property. Me and my family stayed for 2 nights and this is what we felt.Pros:Good location - easy access to market and Yosemite parkQuiteDeer sighting - was delighted to see them in the backyard.Cons:The place is very outdated and not suitable for anyone who has taste for modern lifestyle.The kitchen was dirty and we found utensils and plates unwashed. We felt the kitchen was very unhygienic.The outdoor deck was very dirty too. I don't mind the tree parts falling on the deck but dusty chairs and tables is not acceptable.The closets were overfilled with blankets and pillows(with stains and without cover) and lot of junk which was not organized and was literately shoved inside.Just like me, someone who stayed in the past must have paid cleaning fees. But I do not think that fee is being used to actually clean the place. We ended up cleaning all of those by ourselves which kills the idea of having relaxing and fun time. It is not ideal to call the rental property and have someone come over to clean the place once we find the problem. It's expected that the place is clean and ready to use when we step in. Otherwise, why pay the cleaning fee?
YING X. from Bellevue, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2015 house is a little old but functional, has stove, freezer/refrigerator, dish washer and coffee maker, deck is very comfortable and deers walking around. but it's little difficult to find the house through the security gate and has to go through security gate very time (the other gate is closer and easy to find but unable to get in (only can going out).
A guest from Tracy, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in October, 2014 We didn't have a horrible time, but the place definitely needs to be updated. The pots and pans were filthy and nothing seemed to have a matching lid.
Nataliya S. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 We loved the cabin, huge patio with grill and good variety of movies for all ages. It worked for us very well.
A guest from Danville, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 This property was just as it was described. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. It was clean and comfortable. All of the appliances worked. It was in a nice quiet area. We loved sitting outside on the deck and enjoying the stars and deer.
A guest from Lake Jackson, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2014 Property is not secluded. It's in a nice but large neighborhood. Was very dissappointed in the cleanliness of the inside of the house. Seemed very dusty due to lots of old dried flower arrangements and artificial plants that have seen better years and both of which were coated with dust. There is a large assortment of stuffed animals that should be kept in a toy box at someones house, not at a rental property. The comfortors on the beds were stained, the closets were a wreck (also with more stained comfortors). I feel no one cleaned the place before we got there due to dirty sheets and towels were in the washing machine and a dirty towel was hanging in one of the closets. We arrived after 6pm, but there were no clean towels or sheets available for us. We called and they did arrive within about an hour. The sheets that were left for us appeared to be very old, were also stained and illfitting for the beds. We also were left only a partial roll of toilet paper and paper towels. The whole place could use a good scrubbing and decluttering not to mention the kitchen and bathroom need a face lift! The house has stained carpet, portions of unused food items are left in the cabinets, old dirty rugs, stained doillies and just generally run down. As a "paying" guest I expected maybe not the prettiest but at least clean and well kept. Because something is old does not make it pretty. The porch is nice but doesn't really make up for the inside of the house.
Dina Y. from San Jose, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2014 It was a nice vacation but the property needs a serious update and a good clean up if the owners still would like to rent it out. It also would be nice to get a new cooking dishes since the ones they have can't be use. It was nice to have good books to read in the house thou.Thank you.
A guest from Tucson, AZ recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in June, 2014 some minor glitches when we first arrived, no linens, no tv but Rebecca could not have been friendlier or more attentive to our needs! we had a fantastic time and loved every minute. will say it got a little stuffy in the bedrooms and the a/c mainly cooled the living area. water pressure was sublime. daily visits from deer. mountain sage great coffee and wifi, 24/7, NICE! the mexican restaurant was amazing and we are from tucson, so we know amazing! and the guy that sells fruit and some veggies just before the front gate HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!(mostly the locals shop his produce... smart! best around!) groveland was a perfect summer town and pine mountain lake was great fun! swimming in the lake or the pool, tennis, golf. they had it all. and, i cannot say enough about Rebecca, the manager, the happiest and friendliest rental manager i have ever met! worth the price, worth the trip~
RamaKrishna M. from Folsom, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in May, 2014 We stayed in this property for 2 nights. It was okay for the price we paid.Although we got keys to the property, We're not provided with a security pass to the entrance .
A guest from menlo park, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 pretty dirty, a lot of animal hair, dust behind everything. The lights were burned out, though, and they were there to change them within a few hours. Good response time, but way too dirty. Also, the showerhead was broken.
A guest from San Mateo, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2013 I was generally satisfied with this rental property - amenities generally good. However, it definitely could have been cleaner - there was a lot of dust and our dog even found crumbs of food in areas around the dining room and kitchen. We will probably rent again in the future as it is close to a cabin we own at PML.
NAUM S. from San Francisco, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in October, 2013 Even cheapest rental property must all standard basics for a enjoyable stay, such as paper towel, toilet paper,etc.
A guest from Sacramento, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2013 Older house needs work. Ive been vacationing up there for 10 Plus years. Too many add on costs(fees) now. I will probably vacation elsewhere.. Thanks for asking.
A guest from Sulphur Springs, TX does not recommend this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2013 This house sits very near a road and has close neighbors on either side. One neighbor has a barking dog and small children. There were no directions provided with our afterhours check-in package. We finally arrived to find a HOT house that looked questionably clean-- a comb on the floor in the living room and a used towel hanging in the bathroom. The very small window unit A/C didn't even keep the living room cool, leaving the rest of the house sweltering. The coffee pot didn't work. I wouldn't do it again.
We had a pleasant vacation at this PML property. Very nice Marina
Arkady B. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2013 We had a pleasant vacation at this PML property. Very nice Marina beach and Lake Lodge beach. Excellent and very professional service from PML ReMax Realty to address all our needs and requests. At this specific property it would be nice to have sufficient amount of paper towels, toilet tissue, garbage bags, and other supplies. It seems everything was very limited so we had to purchase our own. Overall experience at this property is positive except the fact that when we first came the coffee machine was clogged, not cleaned and there were some dirty dishes in the kitchen drawers.
dermot c. from peterborough, cambs does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2013 Great location..great deck...ample size. Ants a major problem..aircon v poor.. Place needs a good scrubbing, new pots and pans, coffee maker, a kettle and new comfortors and shams also needs new bathroom. Could be brilliant with the above improvements. Loads of wildlife and no problems eith neighbours etc. Recommend Pine Mountain.
A guest from Seattle, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2013 It was definitely like going back to a simpler time arriving at the cabin. The staff at the rental place were very welcoming and kind to us. The only draw back for us was we happened to come on the one weekend where it was 100 degrees and the air conditioner did not work at all (and the fans being on all the time did not help either). Other then that-- the house was very cute, clean, comfortable with lots of Disney (kid) friendly videos complete with a big working TV/DVD/VCR that came in handy for my six-year old niece. There was a beautiful wrap around deck that was quite comfortable for a little morning weight lifting and breakfast. We even had a visit from a family of deer eating nearby the cabin! Please fix that A/C unit and you've got yourself a little piece of simple quiet heaven :)
Reviewed by: Deb G. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2013 Found house somewhat dirty with some things broken, but I let them know so hopefully they are repaired. Enjoyed watching the deer in back yard!
Lewis G. from Burnley, Lancashire recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2013 Me and my friend stayed here for three nights, originally there was going to be 4 of us but plans changed last minute, but the price was still fab split between two! The bedrooms were great sizes and the beds were very comfortable. The shower worked great with constant hot water. The kitchen had an oven and a 4 ring burner which wasnt on the ad, so that was a bonus. It was about 30mins drive to yosemite park but the drive alone was breathtaking so we hardly even noticed when we arrived/left the park. Couldnt recommend this place enough, thanks a lot!!
Heidy L. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in November, 2012 My family and I love the little house (is what my kids call it). It's always a perfect stay. Carol is the best! She always has everything perfect and ready for us. We love it so much we are planning to buy a place in the near future and have Custom Rentals rent it for us.
A guest from Hannover, Germany does not recommend this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2012 We stayed in this home for three nights. The location is quiet, but the furniture is very, very dusty. Especially the bedrooms weren't cleaned for month. Beds are comfortable, kitchen is well equipped. A quiet but very dusty home.

A guest from Brentwood, TN recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2012 Liked the deck a lot. 2 large trees growing thru & deer came by. Only complaint: It was hot with only 1 window unit in the living room. The air didn't reach the bedrooms. Would probably be OK most months, but not this Aug.
John R. from Voorburg, ZH recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2012 Good value for the money.Pull-out sofa worked out great.Beautiful redwood deck on the back of the home.You will need the car to get to the beaches or other amenities.
A guest from San Bruno, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2012 We've been going here for 12 years now and this year was the worst!I cannot recommend this unit to ANYONE if those noisy, rude neighbors are still there. I come here to get peace and quiet only to be exposed to noisy neighbors drinking, blasting music, screeching tires and partying in to the early hours of the morning. This is supposed to be a family oriented, quiet, peaceful setting. Not this year ! Nuff said .
Property Manager Response: Response from Pine Mountain Custom Rentals The neighbors to the right are not longer in this home. Please call us and we will take care of any issues you might have. We want your stay to be the very best with us. George and Carol
A guest from cary, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in June, 2012 we enjoyed our vacation, it was a nice location about 22 miles from Yosemite park. We loved the porch with the big trees. House was generally in good conditions, except the kitchen needs some deep cleaning.
Heidy L. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in February, 2012 I have been staying at this same little house for 3 years every winter. We love it. My kids will actually ask me all year to go back to the little house as they call it. I plan to go back soon.
Robert G. from Vista, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in December, 2011 Awesome, wish we could have stayed longer, the Management Company that we met Carrol and George were the kindest and most proffesional we have ever met.
Maddy M. from San Franciso, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2011 I thought I already did thids review. The criticism is that the deck was messy, needed sweeping and the chairs put pack in place. That would make it look more inviting as it's a great deck/
Mary S. from Thousand Oaks, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in July, 2011 Thank you for being so responsive to us and allowing us to move properties at the last minute. You were above expectations to then come clean the deck of the property you had not expected to be occupied by us- really appreciate it!!!!
A guest from Roseville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2011 House was adorable! There was a spider issue but management said they will take care of it. Overall a great little house.
Property Manager Response: Response from Pine Mountain Custom Rentals We had a pest control company come out and spray for spiders. Spider issue taken care of. Any time you rent from Pine Mountain Custom Rentals call us regarding the home you are staying in and we will take care of any issues you may have. We want you vacation to be special. George and Carol
gary c. from manteca, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in December, 2010 Cabin was clean and in good shape. Everything seemed to be in good working order. Property management folks (Carol)was very friendly. The only problem I had was that when you walk up the five stairs near the front door, the rain pours off the roof right at that point and you get soaking wet trying to open the front door. When it gets below freezing at night, the stairs get iced over and I nearly broke my neck and a hip when my legs flew out from underneath me the second I stepped on the first stair tread in the morning. One other issue which I guess is normal for renting cabins is that a 2 night stay at $75.00 per night ended up costing more than double ($335.00 total) after adding in all the fees, etc. Shocking when you're used to staying in hotels. So $75 per night ends up costing $167.50 per night for a 2 night stay. Outrageous? I think so. All in all, nice cabin, nice area, nice management.
Craig L. from Grass Valley, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 1 days in September, 2010 we loved the area and our rental. Carol in the office was great. Kept in contact with us to make our trip fun.
The property managers were very helpful and accommodating. The property is a bit old and in need of refreshing. the rental pric
Frank C. from Sacramento, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in September, 2009 Goose Dropings which were not cleaned anytime during our stay. Also the demolition of the restroom was disturbing as they were pounding from 8am to 4pm daily.
David E. from El Dorado Hills, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2009 We rented this house for a weekend with 2 of my children and their spouses. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable. There is quite a large video library. We all watched "Casablanca" on Saturday night. The kitchen table only seats 4 people, but we found the expansion leaf for the table in the master bedroom closet, made the table larger, added 2 of our outdoor chairs, and the 6 of us played cards for most of the night. I would add 2 folding chairs to the house in case there are 6 guests who want to sit around the table.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in February, 2009 A very quiet and peaceful place to stay. The cabin is clean with a nice deck and lots of trees.
