Large 1865 sf home on quiet street in quaint downtown Mariposa, an old gold rush town. Large deck with gorgeous sunset views, propane BBQ & open backyard. Fully stocked w/towels, linens, coffee, toaster, dishes, utensils, pots & pans, books, games, Smart TV (your Netflix/Amazon acct, lots of DVDs, NO cable), wireless WI-FI. Yosemite is 45 mi away; lots to do around town inc. restaurants, bars & shops. Perfect for family or friends getaways. NOTE: traffic into the park in summer is unpredictable.
My family has lived in Mariposa for more than 30 years. My father was a Sound Effects Editor but the inspiration for the decor came from my grandmother who grew up in Hollywood in the 1920's. As a young girl, it was not uncommon for her to knock on the door of a nearby movie star who might have spent that morning signing autographs while having breakfast. The staff would hand my grandmother an autographed picture. She gave me the ones she had left and copies of those are on the living room wall at FiftyFifteen. Those photographs and the stories she told me gave me the ideas for the home.
Every part of the house with the exception of a storage closet and the garage is accessible to our guests. There is not a washer/dryer available but there is a clean laundromat in town near the RiteAid.
Interaction with guests
We do not live on the premises so you'll have total privacy. There is someone available most of the time close by if help is needed.
Other things to note
I have upgraded high-speed Wi-Fi, a rolling laptop desk (in the front closet) and ethernet cables should you desire a hard wired connection. (This is for those guests who come up to work - the house is a perfect place if you have to work while visiting.)

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles. My grandmother grew up in early Hollywood and provided the inspiration for the decor. Several members of my family moved to Mariposa over 30 years ago so it's really a second home. Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places in the US and although I haven't seen the entire world, I'm quite sure it's hard to beat. The history of California's gold country provides even more charm for the nearby area. It is a wonderful place for any family vacation or romantic getaway.
I bought this house and renovated it in 2015-16 and am happy to share it with others. It is my hope that you will truly enjoy yourselves in what is a very personal place of mine!
