About the property

Beautifully remodeled chalet with king, queen and day bed. A/C, HD TV & Internet

The Yosemite Paradise Chalet is the perfect getaway for Yosemite Park. After nine months of renovations that completed in January 2015, everything is new, fresh and clean. The Chalet is a private home in a unique community INSIDE the gates of Yosemite Park with easy access to the Park attractions. It is located near the Glacier Point road and HWY 41, the main road in the park.

This is a beautiful 2-story home with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room, loft, 2 decks, a full kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, fresh paint and new furniture.

The kitchen is equipped with all the major appliances, dinnerware and organic supplies you will need for a quick snack or gourmet meal. We have stocked organic fair-trade coffee and teas and over 30 organic spices, in addition to a large microwave, quiet dishwasher, coffee maker, tea kettle, blender, stand mixer, food processor, slow cooker, fine cutlery, 5-burner gas stove with custom griddle, convection oven and a large refrigerator with in-door ice and chilled water dispensers. A reverse osmosis water filter and LED lighting complete this luxury vacation home.

The Chalet has full house air conditioning, remote control heating, Dish HD TV and satellite internet. We have stocked the home with games, books and park information. The covered rear deck is tucked away in the back to provide you a quiet and private place to relax and enjoy the birds, animals and forest views. The front deck is large with chairs, tables and special lounge chairs for children. A gas barbecue is provided for your grilling pleasure.

The bedrooms are furnished with quality mattresses, linens and plenty of storage. There are remote controls for AC, heat, ceiling fans and even a heated bed cover for your personal comfort.

There is a king bed with day bed and full closet in the main floor bedroom. The 2nd floor bedroom has a comfortable queen bed, dresser and windows with forest views.

Each bathroom is stocked with organic soap, shampoo and conditioner, and has a Jacuzzi jetted tub to help you relax after a long day of hiking and exploring the wonders of Yosemite.

The Chalet is finished with eco-friendly bamboo wood floors, a modern color palette, scenic artwork, LED lighting with dimmers, new windows with forest views and new mahogany doors throughout the home. All the furnishing are new and designer quality.

This is the perfect getaway for two couples, a small family or friends in search of a new Yosemite adventure.

About Jeff and Melissa

We are a young family with two beautiful girls who love to explore the wonders of Yosemite. I work long days in the medical research field, my wife is busy with the girls and we split our time between San Jose and Yosemite.

Jeff and Melissa purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Jeff and Melissa chose Yosemite National Park

We had explored Yosemite Park for years before finding the Chalet in 2014. The house was a diamond in the rough. After a year of extensive remodeling we have created our dream vacation home that we are proud to share with travelers to the Park.

What makes this chalet unique

The Chalet is a private home on a large lot in Yosemite West. This special community is located inside the gates of the Park at 6000' elevation in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

We're the perfect location to base your exploration of Yosemite. It's 25 minutes north to Yosemite Valley, 25 minutes east to Glacier Point, 15 minutes to Badger Pass and 25 minutes south to Wawona. The three main attractions of Yosemite are easy and scenic drives from the Chalet.

We are one of the few properties to have air conditioning to help beat the summer heat.

Cozy little chalet style home, ok for a (very) short stay for a couple with small kids

  • 3 of 5

Three adults and one teen stayed for three nights first week in April, and offer the following review:


Lots of toys / games / books for the little kids

Heater and A/C worked well

Bed in downstairs bedroom was very comfortable

Outside gas grill was a great feature and worked well

Most things labeled well (remotes, fans, etc.)

Good selection of Yosemite books available


Narrow steep driveway was a challenge to maneuver (luckily we just had one vehicle)

NO INTERNET connection except for incoming emails at 2:30AM

Very cramped living, kitchen and sleeping areas for the four of us

No wine glasses (REALLY?), I mean, doesn't everyone drink wine?

Coffee maker took over half hour to brew

Outdoor lights kept flashing on/off all night (motion detector type) keeping some of our party awake

Not much to do/see in the neighborhood - nearest hikes are 10+ miles away

Long windy ride from Hwy 41 to get to the house - at the end of the development

Half hour to get to the nearest market (Wawona Hotel Market) so pack well!


It would be nice to get some type of check-in from the owner(s) or property managers, considering there is no phone service at the cottage for guests to call with questions, issues, etc. We had to rely on phone and internet service in Yosemite Valley in order to stay in touch.

Get reliable internet service - at the rates charged this should be a given

Expand the narrow driveway and allow a little space at the top to maneuver safely

In your booklet with maps and info, provide some idea of LOCAL hiking trails, things to do, restaurants, etc. Even indicating how many miles from the cottage info would be helpful

Snowy trip to Paradise Chalet

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was an absolutely wonderful place!

There wasn't anything missing that you could have needed regarding kitchen, bath, or bedroom appointments. Everything was very high-end...there was even an Instant Pot. GTK for another time!

I would, however, like to suggest a grab bar to assist getting into and out of the jacuzzi tubs...somewhat of a challenge for an older, vertically challenged person. :)

My 4-year old granddaughter especially had fun with the "new" toys in the was like a treasure hunt for her everyday.


I would not recommend coming to the Chalet in extreme road conditions without a vehicle that has 4-wheel drive. We had a new Honda Odyssey with chains and were unable to get the car up the very steep driveway.

However, the steep driveway did make a great snow park for my granddaughter...she thought it was a lot of fun.

Getting back out of Yosemite West was pretty scary with slushy, icy road conditions...lots of slipping and sliding, our van wasn't able to get very good traction.

Beautiful home, great neighborhood....just needed more favorable weather conditions to more thoroughly enjoy it and the closeness to Yosemite Valley.

Perfect for our family of Four

  • 5 of 5

I would truly love to meet the family that set-up this "chalet" so beautifully in this glorious National Park. If the owners were to offer a course on "How to set up a rental property to be PERFECT for a family of 4-6" I would take the class immediately. From the well appointed kitchen to the heated mattresses and jacuzzi bath tubs....WOW!

I hope that our family can respectfully make a stay at the Paradise Chalet a yearly tradition.

Deeply appreciative,

The Meisels
