  • Description


    Quiet and serene mountain life near Yosemite National Park WITHOUT giving up on comfortable living!
    We have a 5 acre lot at 3200 feet elevation close to Yosemite. You can enjoy your wooded surroundings without sacrificing on amenities. The site has good internet access, electricity (with back up generator), running water, septic, AC and the only thing not present is city noise and congestion.
    You will stay in your own trailer with kitchen, bathroom and all the above amenities.
    We also have a home on the property close to the trailer that my wife and I visit on weekends.

    You are asked to enjoy your time while keeping an eye on the property and feeding our 8 lovely hens, you are free to work on new projects if you so wish. We are looking to bring to the property a couple of sheep. At some point we plan to build a tree house, deck, shed and other outdoor structures. Enjoy and expand existing trails on the property along the mountainous terrain.
    Please contact me for more information about this unique opportunity that doesn’t come along too often.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are a truly international family. My wife and I were born and raised in the Holyland particularly in the city of Bethlehem. We moved to the USA several years ago. We have 8 children and so far 4 grandchildren. Our children are bi-cultural. My son-in-law is from Columbia. My daughter-in-law is from Mexico. Every weekend we gather at the land and stay at the vacation home (separate from the trailer where you will stay). This gives you the opportunity to meet with and get to know everyone (if you so wish). My wife is an excellent cook so you will be treated to authentic Arabic food. She will teach you cooking if you’re so inclined.
    My son-in law is a handyman who can teach you how to build and DIY projects. You get to learn different languages as we are trilingual Arabic English and Spanish. We also have our grandchildren who keep things alive :)
    So you can interact with a large multicultural family, as well as learn about different kinds of forest trees on our property, feed the hens and future sheep. Build, explore, interact and have fun with a fun family.

  • Help


    Not much help is requested. We’re not at the property except on weekends and want someone to be around when we’re away. You can be a partner with us in tree trimming and brush clearing around the property if needed which would be of benefit to all in order to maintain a fire safe environment. It is up to you to indulge in DIY projects such as building a tree house, a shed a deck or outdoor structures etc......I have plenty of tools for your convenience
