The Space

UPDATE: MAY 10, 2014……

For the last 7 years we have offered this unit to rent, but then different friends tell us that they want it so I again have no bookings through airbnb. This is the reason for no reviews yet. Never had a vacancy or unhappy guest.

The dates of  6/29 thru 7/6 FOR UNBELIEVABLE DEAL OF $855 Airbnb's service fee which appears to be $88 and that's it. No resort fees, taxes or cleaning fees.

Although small, we have it ALL! Best location on Airbnb for South Lake Tahoe. NOTICE no cleaning fee or resort fee tacked onto your bill as many of the resorts are doing these days. I just looked up to stay there through the resort for this week and the cheapest room was $1333 to $1487. Looks like airbnb charges $88 for this listing. So you pay only $943 total. HUGE SAVINGS!

3 person minimum (or 4 with 2 small children)

In the heart of TAHOE. Available 6/29 to 7/6. Get this whole week for $855 (plus Airbnb fee) and THAT'S IT. Most everything comes with the timeshare. Wifi, DVD's, bikes, continental breakfast daily, 2 pools, 2 jacuzzi spas outdoors, MANY activities, family friendly and way more that you would normally have to pay for elsewhere. Arrive 6/29 and depart 7/6 . You get basically Sun, Mon, and most of Tues free with the 7 day rental.

For less than 7 day reservation, any reservation with July 4, must include July 3 and 5th. You, of course can have more than just the 3 days up to 7.

This is at the Stardust Timeshare Resort. If you have been to timeshares, you know they are a nice place to stay. I have normally let our friends rent this out for the July 4th week for the last 7 years but they just bought their own at the Stardust Timeshare Resort an will join us this year in their own place. We are located right in the Heart of South Lake Tahoe across from the Heavenly Gondola and just steps away from Stateline Casinos.

There is a great video on yelp. But don't pay attention to the actual rooms because they are from before the renovations that have been taking place in the last 4 years. It is narrated by Lorena, the property manager, who is so sweet and wonderful. Go to Yelp on line and type in Stardust Lodge at South lake tahoe and watch the video.

Instead: I added this review I read that I just loved.

We are also steps away from Movie Theaters (CA and NV) and pee wee golf, Raley's Grocery Store, Food choices like Fire & Ice, Coldstone, Starbucks, Subway, too many to list.

We love that fact that we can park our car and choose never to drive it if we desire. Total relaxing vacation. We also have a beach that is privately owned that we belong to. With your beach pass, you have access to it at the end of Stateline Blvd. We usually walk to it. Maybe half mile or less. Also the perfect place to watch the Harrahs/Harvey's Fireworks Show which is held right off shore from our beach. There are free: bikes, some fishing gear, laundry facilities, popcorn, activities, morning donuts and coffee, etc. There are 2 pools and 2 jacuzzis and work out room. Check out Stardust Tahoe in a search. Airbnb won't let me put the website on here. They block those. I love hanging out in the Jacuzzi and just people watching on the Blvd all day long. We are directly across the street from the Marriott Timeshare Resort with the Heavenly Gondola that you can go on for fantastic views and hiking in the summertime.

We have owned here for 15 years now and go every year. It is such a friendly family atmosphere that you won't find at the big resorts. Everyone gets to know each other and we feel like we are at a family reunion every year with those that go every year like we do and meeting new friends (lots). We will be there too in our 2 bdrm.

July 4th week is the most popular week in South Lake Tahoe and difficult to find great accommodations at a reasonable price.

This is for the Studio (called Satellite) which sleeps comfortably 2 in the queen Murphy Bed. They have another type of bed depending on which room you get which will accommodate a 3rd person but I would recommend a child, because The bed is small. I looked up the room on some of the hotel sites and Stardust and during 4th of July week, this room goes for between $1500 to $1650 with all fees. The end of the week rents out higher than the first part due to the holiday. Check it out. I am renting it out for $855 (plus airbnb's fee) for the full week whether you use the full 7 days or not. After you have been here a week, I bet you will fall in love with this place too as everyone has that I have brought here has. The Marriott across the street rent out in upwards of $400 a night. Fancier, if you like that. We enjoy the comradery and talking with neighbors from all over the world in a family atmosphere.

FREE WIFI. FREE PARKING for 1 vehicle. There is a 2nd floor without elevator. If this is a concern, please inquire before booking. Continental breakfast included on first come first serve basis.

Remember! I WILL BE THERE in my Own unit. There is a 3 person limit into this room. (Exception with small children)

Come, enjoy and have fun. Gerry & Phil

I must admit I had my reservations when my guy told me we would be staying at Stardust Lodge for my birthday weeked SLT trip. How great is feels now to be proved wrong!

When we drove up to Stardust, even he expressed his surprise with the exterior: "Are you serious?" Well, being that I am a woman and I take the time to analyze things, I had already researched the place and so I knew to expect an outdated exterior. We were told by the front desk staff (a nice young gentleman) that we had scored one of the renovated rooms, which had me light up with glee! But I did not expect to see what was inside.

Photos don't do the rooms justice at all! I opened the door to my new little studio for the weekend, and it was PERFECT! I grinned from ear to ear as I checked out the beautiful modern decor, the kitchenette (fully stocked!!), the bathroom sink/vanity area with plenty of counter space and wall mirrors, and, last but not least, the stone shower with dual shower heads. I looked at my guy and told him he did very, very well. :)

Staying at Stardust for the weekend was more like having my own little studio apartment for the weekend. I felt at home. I still got my healthy breakfast in the morning, worked out at the on-site gym, watched a movie during downtime from their extensive DVD library, etc. Yes, the studio is small, but it is perfect for 1-2 people and I could not have been happier! It should be noted that I am not the easiest to please, though I DO make the most of every situation. But I digress...

Oh! How could I forget the perfect LOCATION? We nearly walked everywhere, from the Heavenly Gondola across the street, to Harrah's and Harvey's, to shopping on the strip. It's also a short walk to the beach area. As far as I'm concerned, Stardust Lodge has it all. I was one very happy customer! We will be back in May!! :-)

  • Ever come across something that looks good in pictures but in real life it's not the same as the pictures.... Well, not the case with Gerry & Phil's place. Their place is as nice or better than what you see in the pictures. Gerry & Phil were nice hosts. And Koda showed how smart he is with his doggie tricks. My two night stay was for business reasons and I appreciated the safe, clean, and quiet space. Safe, clean, and quiet - thank you. Spacious also. I will try to find my way back.

  • Lovely home and gracious hosts. Wonderful pool and hot tub, we felt very welcome had a great time :-)

  • Gerry and Phil's place in Manteca was such a welcomed oasis for our travels. Gerry makes time to ensure she covers everything with guests upon check in, even provided off the street parking in their driveway with an "air bnb guest" parking sign in drive. The couple are very accommodating, genuinely nice folks and ready to provide suggestions and just have friendly conversation. The photo of the pool and back yard don't do it justice, the space really is terrific. This is in neighborhood of homes with some density, but feels very private and is extremely relaxing. Thank you both for a wonderful stay - we can highly recommend staying with Gerry and Phil!

  • What a wonderful place and people! Gerry and Phil and the rest of their family were really wonderful hosts for us. They were very organized, friendly, thoughtful, personable, considerate, and went above and beyond with a regular supply of fresh homemade cinnamon rolls and muffins, fresh orange juice and coffee, and allowing us to host a barbecue and pool party in the back yard. Gerry even cut us a break for both rooms as we were staying about a week. The rooms were spacious, clean, beautiful, a whole half a house for just us. It was home away from home (I never did admit I love dragons too, Phil), complete with dog and cats.

  • Staying at Gerry and Phil's was the best choice we could have made. This place is absolutely spotless, comfortable and convenient. Both, Gerry and Phil, are friendly and fun to be with. My family and I felt at home... a bit better actually.

    We are certain we've made new friends and have great appreciation for what our hosts did for us. When we ran into some unexpected trouble, Gerry and Phil became our family. They supported us and helped us just like our own relatives would have done if we had been with them.

    Koda is a very nice and friendly dog, and the cats are not disruptive at all. Staying here was so like home that our daughter even went with Phil to take the dog for a walk.

    There are no words that can describe how nice our hosts were and how good the place is.

  • I had a great experience at Gerry and Phil’s house and I really wish I could have stayed more than one night! Gerry, Phil, and their daughter were a pleasure to talk to and went out of their way to make sure I was comfortable and relaxed. Some of the highlights of my short, but sweet visit were the hot tub, the comfortable bed, their awesome dog tricks, delicious coffee, and the fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast time. I will definitely be back in Manteca for my next visit from the East coast. Thank you so much Gerry and Phil for the wonderful experience!

  • This place is so awesome that it's getting two reviews!.....One from me and one from my boyfriend :)

    My review:
    First of all, I am totally new to AirBnB. When I made reservations to stay with Gerry and Phil, I was having some complications getting through due to website glitches. Gerry and Phil were more than helpful! They helped my boyfriend and I at the last minute when we did not have anywhere else to stay. They were also very accommodating as the GPS we were using rerouted us to a longer path and ended up checking in much later than we had anticipated. Although my boyfriend and I got in pretty late, Gerry and Phil welcomed us in with bright and cheery smiles :)
    In the morning, Gerry made fresh-squeezed orange juice as well as some other foods: blueberry muffins and fresh fruits. It was such a delight talking story with her during breakfast. Also, it was interesting to see how she ended up living in Manteca and what got her started doing AirBnb hosting.
    Thank you Gerry and Phil! We'll definitely be back again with more stories to tell of our AirBnB adventures! - Shekinah

    Austin's review:
    My girlfriend and I loved this place. The hospitality of Gerry and Phil is simply some of the nicest you will find, I guarantee.
    On our trip, we were running late and needed a place to stay, so we used Yelp to help us. Even when we were running late, Gerry and Phil offered to stay up and give us a tour. Gerry was very patient and friendly, joking while providing the next day's itinerary.
    The 2nd story living room, bathroom, and 2 bedrooms consisted as the guest quarters. The unit was decorated with pictures and kiddy toys like dragons and movie posters. Microwaves, a TV with a DVD player and movies, a mini fridge, and even a bedroom TV.
    The place is fully furnished with 2 beds, couches, dinner tables, chairs, clean sheets/blankets, pillows, and an assortment of towels and bath supplies.
    The house was very clean and well kept, regardless of the 2 friendly animals roaming around. Gerry even showcased her dog's trained skills! Everything was very good looking.
    Breakfast was very good with an assortment of fruits, drinks, and muffins. As usual the silverware was immaculate. Her homemade orange juice was fresh and pulpy. Coffee was also available from one of those modern Keurig machines.
    The backyard looked just like the pictures with a pool, jaccuzi, hammock, chairs, a play castle, with an expansive view of the surrounding neighborhood. 1 parking stall is available with some street parking around the local cul-de-sac.
    Gerry warned us that after visiting her BNB, we would be spoiled- we would be hard pressed to find another with such kind hospitality; she was right. This place will leave you with a great feeling of wanting to come back! -Austin

  • My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Manteca. Gerry and Phil were excellent hosts and made us feel right at home immediately. The guest area is spacious, clean and comfortable.

    We were visiting family and touring the area; we were disappointed we were only able to swim in the pool once because of our time constraints. When we visit next time we will definitely take advantage of the beautiful pool and hot tub. The cinnamon rolls were delicious and we're glad we ordered them in advance.

    We highly recommend staying with Gerry and Phil - their B&B is a real gem.

  • Gerry and Phil have topped my list of gracious hosts. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better they proved me wrong. Gerry is such a sweetheart we actually missed her the next day. She takes pride in being a host and her set up is 5 star quality. The Queen size bed is like sleeping on a cloud. The towels and linens are Supreme. She is super friendly and we enjoyed chatting with her. She was very accommodating to all of our needs and she even offered us fresh squeezed orange juice. She works hard to make everything just right for her guests. If we are ever in the area again without a doubt we will stay and I would hope it would be for a few days. She is a gracious host, with a beautiful heart and a huge spirit. Phil is a gentle spirit as well, they both made us feel welcome and cared for. Our friends were first timers to the airbnb experience. I explained this was the ultimate airbnb experience I've had. I'm super grateful to these folks for doing what they do. I cannot say enough. Start you see is v what you get. Gerry is a detailed hostess. Everything is well organized and put together like a pro. We absolutely loved our stay. A beautiful home. Stay a week if you can it's so perfect as a get away. Pool, bbq and jacuzzi. Ladies your man will be in heaven with the 92 inch TV in the guest living area. Amazing!

  • This is the best vacation my girlfriend and I ever had in living with host. We stayed at Gerry's and Phil's house for 5 days and we enjoyed every moment of it. They are very friendly, helpful, and hospitable. Their house was very clean and organized and the price was absolutely worth it. They gave us a bedroom along with a living room that had a huge TV+cable and many other things that we didn't even get a chance to use. Their sweet dog named Koda is super playful and friendly. they are 5 star hosts. I wish we could have stayed longer but our return ticket was already purchased.

Origami Owl - Gerry Perry. I'm in the phone book. Manteca ca Independent Designer
my husband and I moved here from Fremont CA to Manteca CA 11 years ago in 2002. We love where we live. Our daughter, who is a very sweet loving girl and the reason for the move. She is a freshman in college and loves to sing, dance, and act. She is also musically talented with her piano, flute, guitar, and, more recently, ukelele. My husband's hobby is Halloween and he and his partner spend a lot of time getting the "Scary Perry Haunted House" put together every year. It is top quality and outdoes what a neighborhood haunted house would usually put out. Therefore, house is in quite disarray from this event. We used to not open the house to airbnb during this period, but due to demand of people wanting to stay here then, we decided to keep if available and see if it works out. Since Dell Osso Farms is open during that time and it a big attraction, it would not be in our best interest to shut down during that time. We have lived in the bay area all our lives until we moved an hour east of it. So we know the bay area quite well. We have spent many years turning our yard into an oasis and think we are about done. We get many compliments on how beautiful it has turned out and it is great to see my vision become a reality. Gardening is my hobby so in springtime you will usually see lots of flowers. Well, at least until we got the dog who thinks flowers are toys. Flowers make me happy. I love hearing people's stories so I hope, if you stay here, you will tell me yours. I also am an Independent Designer for the Origami Owl Jewelry Company. If you are interested in the product because it is not sold in stores and want to see it, let me know and I will bring some or send me a message of your wish list and I can put one together and send a photo if possible. If you come to my Manteca airbnb, It will be here. I carry inventory. The website is (website hidden) awiseoldgal dot origamiowl dot kom if you want to look first. Some people are not prepared before they get here and wish they would have known. I want to be ready for customizing their product before they get here, so I have decided to add this to my description. FYI. Also sell cinnamon rolls and was encouraged by a guest to post this because they took some home as a gift for friends. Dozen 25 dollars, half dozen 15 dollars.
