Read our reviews and you will know you have selected a wonderful place to stay.
CONTINENTAL BREAKFAST AVAILABLE (INCLUDED)
Please let me know in advance if you are interested in the continental breakfast. We usually provide muffins, oatmeal, orange juice (fresh squeezed when in season or off our tree), coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk and sometimes some other little bonuses. If you are on a special diet, let me know and I can work with you. I am also known for my homemade cinnamon rolls. It does take time to make these but if this is a favorite of yours, let me know and I'll try and schedule to make some instead of muffins. My family sure would love it. They never get sick of them.
YOUR BEDROOMS, LIVING ROOM AND BATHROOM ARE TOTALLY PRIVATE AND SEPARATED FROM THE REST OF THE HOME. But, you are always welcome to come hang out with us. We are social and love company but we understand you may want some quiet time too.
FRESH AND CLEAN
All Bedding and towels are freshly cleaned prior to each new guest arriving. The rooms are thoroughly cleaned also. It is a big area, hence the $6 one time cleaning fee for your entire stay.
The listed price is based on 2 persons to a room. If you are 2 person wanting separate bedrooms, there is a $10 additional fee to do so. Just plug in 3 people instead of 2, and the price will automatically adjust for the separate rooms.
COSTCO & WALMART
We have a Costco right here at our exit too if you need a refill on any food items and our store has gasoline fill up station. Not all do. Best prices around for gas. I can take you if you don't have a card.
Walmart is just off the freeway too, just 2 miles down from us. Should have just about anything you may be needing (except gas). Regular Grocery Store is 2 miles away also.
THE QUEEN BEDROOM
Queen Size Mattress.
I am told by nearly everyone who stays here that this is the most comfortable bed they have ever slept in. Stay here for a great nights sleep. I've been asked what my mattress is, but it is my own combination of comfort that I created. 600 TC SheetsI have stayed at hotels that I never wanted to get out of bed, so I tried to recreate that here and believe it worked. You have a TV in your room. Heating Blanket, Ceiling Fan. Closet and Drawers. View, including the sunrise.
THE FULL BEDROOM
Full Size Mattress.
Very comfortable Bed with 600 TC sheets by Jennifer Lopez. Currently has no TV. But you still have the 92 inch TV in your family room. Can add a twin bed to the room if desired. Let me know prior to arrival. Heating Blanket, Ceiling Fan. Closet & small drawer space.
If you have a large group, this room is great additional space. Depending on how big your group is, we may not have additional bedding for everyone. If you are long distance or flying in, let me know and I will see what I have for you. If you are local, let me know also. I only have so much bedding and each group is different and would need to go over the details to see if this works for you. Bringing sleeping bags is always good for large groups, but I know that is not always possible. I have had up to 21 people stay here for the weekend before. Your view is of 20 acres plus and beyond of farmland. So fun to watch the tractors, crop duster, sunrise, the occasional storm, etc.
This room has 2 VERY comfortable couches (great for sleeping), a loveseat, microwave, mini refrigerator/freezer, pantry. If you need more refrig/freezer space, we have more space in our own for you. Also the 92 screen TV, yes 92, with Bose sound system. We currently also offer Netflix, Pandora, Full Cable stations, HBO and
WII. Wifi is available here too with Comcast HIGH SPEED INTERNET SERVICE. We also have a large movie collection or you could rent from Redbox down the street.
We have a fire pit, fireplace, pool and outdoor Jacuzzi for you enjoyment that is seasonal. Our pool has a beautiful 5 ft waterfall. We also have a Bar-B-Q available all year long under the Palapa Hut that can be used in the winter if your up to it. We can get down to the 30's here in the winter and up to the 100's in the summer. I opened up 20 feet of fence line to create a view, I just love, of the farmland. Our Dog, Koda loves it too.
GREAT STOPPING SPOT FOR TRAVEL
You probably can't find a home more smack dab in the center of CA than ours. We are also just off the main artery of travel for California by car. Interstate Hwy 5 is the quickest route running through California reaching the borders of Canada to Mexico. I-5 to Hwy 120, go 2 exits to Airport Way right. First left, first right. YOU'RE THERE. So easy, So convenient.
NEIGHBORHOOD & PARKING
This is a wonderful neighborhood and I am so happy to have my neighbors. It is clean and neat and SAFE. We have one of the safest, if not THE safest, neighborhood in our town. It is only 11 years old. Our neighbors actually all know each other around here. Great place to have raised our daughter who is 18 now. Our home was one of the first built here. Our home is 3000 sf. I get comments from my guests all the time on what a nice neighborhood we have. We have a 3 car garage and provide you with parking on the driveway nearest the front door to our home. Look for the airbnb guest parking sign I put out for you. There is lots of parking on the street in front too and sometimes more on the driveway if available.

ATTN: BIG LEAGUE DREAM BALL PLAYERS
My main idea was to help provide accommodations to sports players looking for an inexpensive place to stay for their team. But don't hesitate to book a room because you are not here for Big League Dreams, we welcome all who wish to stay here.
LITTLE MORE HOUSE INFO
All rooms are upstairs and one private bath upstairs with tub/shower combo. The faucet of the shower has a rain shower head and is adjustable for height. My taller guests tell me how they love this. A 2nd guest bath is at the bottom of the stairs with a corner shower. It is not private but can be used if needed. My larger groups have enjoyed this bonus. The house actually has 4 full baths and 5 bedrooms in a 3000 sq ft home. With the exception of my daughter, whose room is upstairs also and includes her own private bath, my husband and I rarely use the upstairs. Our master is downstairs.
Upstairs has it's own heating and air conditioning system. Ceiling Fans in all rooms. Share downstairs kitchen. Kitchen refrigerator may be used if more room needed. Freezer space too. Large dining table accommodates 12. Table for 4 to 6 in your room but may be removed to provide more sleeping space if needed.
House is very clean. Yes, we have 2 cats, but you wouldn't know it. I am very particular about odors, especially cat odors. So you won't find that here. Our malamute puppy is now all grown up and turned 2 in Oct 2013 and is such a sweetheart and LOVES people. I have also trained him well. He will show you his tricks if you like. People just adore him. We have a gate between your area and the cats or dog can't wander in. Dog is allowed if you like, but no cats.
PRINTER and SCALE
Some of you have have had special needs such as a printer to print boarding passes and a scale to weigh your luggage. You have access to both of these here.
BEWARE OF HALLOWEEN SEASON
Because of our HUGE Annual Haunted House, the house can be in disarray most all of Oct and some of Nov, but your rooms will be untouched by the HH stuff. If you REALLY want to come at this time of year, the house will not look as it does the rest of the year. The rest of the house is a disaster usually because of the haunted house props, costumes, gadgets, boxes and storage bins, etc. It is an interesting time in our home, just bear that in mind or pick another place for this time. The HH is open Up to 11pm for 3 to 4 nights a year. But usually an hour after that to shut down. So, if sleep is your concern, you, will not want to come those nights. Inquire on what nights we are running the HH. We are Scary Perry Haunted House. Search us on internet or check us out on that book thats a face page. Some actually love coming this time of year.
THE POOL DOES NOT HAVE A FENCE AROUND IT.
Our city does not require that as other cities do. If this is concern for you, you may not want to stay here. SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK!
We have a very large grassy area and I am open to tent camping as well but for 2 nights max . BBQ and firepit are available also to use. Send me a message and we'll talk.
NO PETS! NO SMOKING! NO DRUGS! If you must smoke, please smoke on the sidewalk, away from the house.
Looking forward to meeting many people from many places. We will do all we can to make your stay a happy one.
Yours, Phil, Gerry and Miranda
Ironing board and iron, hair dryer, magnifying mirror, pantry area, mini fridge and freezer, microwave are all located in your space. Need something we are not thinking about here, let us know. There is also a heating and air conditioning system built just for the upstairs area which you have control of. We only ask that you do not use the heat at night. Remember, you do have your heating blankets to keep you snuggly if needed.
As little or as much as they like. We are very social and like to treat you as if you are family here for a visit.
We are a very safe friendly neighborhood nearing 12 years old now. We were one of the first 7 homes built in this entire area. We know nearly all our neighbors, which would make it very difficult if we ever decided to leave. As the saying goes, you can pick the neighborhood but you can't always pick the neighbors. We are very lucky.
I can always take you to somewhere around town if you need it, but most guests coming here have their own car or a rented car. Stockton airport is 10 miles but only Allegiant air flies from there. The major airports, Oakland, Sacramento, San Jose, San Francisco are all about 1 hr to 1 hr 20 minutes. Traffic conditions could delay those times. Make pre arrangements and for a fee, I can pick you up or take you for much less than a service or taxi.
We had a nice night's stay on our way from Oregon to SoCal for spring break. The house is very comfortable and the kids really liked being able to pet the dog. We could recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Gerry & Phil!
We had a peaceful overnight stay at Gerry and Phil's house on our way from Yosemite park to San Francisco. Accommodation was very well prepared by our hosts with lots of home entertainment, we felt relaxed and secure. Breakfast was delicious, the dog was totally adorable and guys were generous to give my wife little jar as a gift.
This was my second stay with Gerry and Phil. The last time I only stayed one night but this stay was for a week so I really was spoiled by their hospitality. The bed was so comfortable that I had a very hard time getting up every morning. The comfy couch in the private living room along with the humongous large screen tv resulted in a great entertainment experience. I loved Gerry's homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh squeezed orange juice for breakfast. They even shared fresh lettuce from their garden with me.
The entire family was very hospitable, even Koda (dog) who greeted me at the door daily :-) If I wanted privacy and rest I went upstairs to my private living quarters but if I wanted to socialize with the family I was welcome to join them downstairs. They made me feel very welcome and comfortable in their home. I highly recommend staying with the Perry's if you are in the Manteca area. I will definitely stay again if I am back in the area. Thanks again to Gerry, Phil, Miranda and Koda for making my stay very enjoyable.
We just needed two nights at a place that would be comfortable with our two young, energetic kids. SO EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS! The beds were crazy comfortable, rain shower head so nice, couches so cozy, TV so huge with every channel imaginable. Gerry got the hot tub up and running, set up a cot so kids didn't have to sleep together, made us fresh, homemade cinnamon rolls and fresh squeezed OJ.
My only complaint is that we couldn't stay longer! We played in the backyard. We loved the pets. There were birds everywhere. AND, we could have stayed and talked forever with Gerry and Phil. Again, with airbnb, we have met new, life long friends. We can't wait to go back. I feel like Gerry and Phil's place is a destination in its self. I hope they wait to take out the swing set, because my kids loved it.
We stayed one night on our way to Yosemite NP. It was great to sleep in such comfy beds after a long day of walking in SF. Gerry and Phil were great hosts, making sure we had everything we needed. We highly recommend their place if you are staying in Manteca.
We had a great stay at the Perry's house. They were very warm and welcoming. The house is beautiful. It has a large backyard with a pool, a jacuzzi and a grill for BBQ. We were able to cook in the grill and had a nice family dinner in the backyard. The rooms where we stayed were very comfortable and with a lot of space. We also had a living room for ourselves with a huge 92 inch TV which was unbelievable. We learned that the Perry's are famous for the Scary Perry haunted house they set up in October, Phil gave us a great preview of what it would be like this year!
Had a brilliant stay with this marvelous. We talked for hours , and the breakfast coffee and blueberry went down a treat. I had little enough time to avail of the great facilities .... but I made the most of the 10 minutes I had in their wonderful pool out back. Koda the dog was bemused at me wallowing around like a walrus! Bed was comfortable , bathroom private .... and in general the whole experience vastly exceeded any expectations I might have had. Handy stop off point for Yosemite , which was my goal. We will be back!
It couldn't be better. Everything you could imagine is there and Gerry and Phil are the best hosts ever.
The great room, a clean private bath, a huge television, a great pool and all the advice (supermarkets, restaurant) make it the best Airbnb ever.
Book it, if you're in that area!
Phill & Gerry are such a lovely couple! We really enjoyed our staying with them. They were really thoughtful and showed us around so we could make their house ours too. We used the kitchen as if we were at home. The pool was really nice and the backyard is just amazing. I wish we could stay longer but we were there for just one night. We had really nice conversations : ) My friend played the guitar and I sang (we will do better next time!). Koda is the cutest dog ever and really well trained. The room was really comfortable and we had total privacy to use the rooms designated for us. The living room and the TV ... oh! I felt like I was at a movie theather!
We had such a great time and we are planning to come back and visit Phill's haunted house during Halloween!
Though the stay was brief it was definitely a cozy one. My friend and I weren't expecting an extra bedroom, but the extra space was definitely welcomed. The pets in the house provided an added entertainment, which definitely made the stay a lot more fun and enjoyable.
Definitely recommend if you need a place to stay in the area.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
