UPDATE: After a wonderful (and hectic!) first 8 months on Airbnb, I've decided to take a breather and close down for the final months of 2017. I will be starting up again in 2018. Thanks to all of you from near and far away who booked and treated my home like your own. I've been able to add a lot of fun features to the house as a result of renting the house out, and more surprises are planned when I resume Airbnb next year. I've just opened up dates for Jan-April 2018.


So, guests ask me why I rent my house out:

Just over one year ago, I lost two amazing Labrador puppies (Sammy and Bear) to the Parvo Virus. I spent all my tax reserves trying to save them both (over $20,000)

People say you shouldn't make decisions in grief. I did. I sold my house, my car, and all my furniture, and moved to the country and bought this magnificent house so my new dogs (Tubs and Brutus) would be safe.

It is an amazing house, and I've put my heart and soul into it. I rent it out right now to help pay taxes. I also enjoy the reaction guests have when they check in. I'm a single guy, with two amazing dogs, and we all have a place to stay in Fresno when we are gone (though it does costs me)

As you will find, this house has amenities that you won't find elsewhere (on Airbnb or hotels). To name a few: a $4,000 massage chair, billiards table, gazebo, fire pit, 4 person infrared indoor sauna (coming mid-late August), library, gym/yoga equipment, desks for laptops, x-box, 4K 70 inch Tv, swimming pool with a large shelf for tanning, and TVs in every room. There are 4 air conditioning zones, and propane heats the house so warm water comes on within seconds. There are numerous board games for families to play, and swimming equipment and toys outside. My goal was to make this a paradise in the country, and I'm constantly adding new stuff to surprise guests.

Please take care of my house while you stay. It's a special place to me and my guests who take a time out from life.

Have a wonderful time!


P.s. If my house doesn't work for your budget, or if you have a smaller group, you should check out a place called 'Paradise at Millerton Lake' in this area: amazing views of the lake, hosts who provide meals (I don't), and from what I've read, you'll have a thouroughly good time there as well.

Tilgang for gjester

All areas of the house, except for the fourth bedroom (it's a spa room for guests who want such services during their stay)

Interaksjon med Gjester

As I am now renting the whole house out, I return to Fresno with my dogs while guests stay here. I am available to answer questions via text however.

Hello all.

Couple of rules:

1) No parties. Strictly enforced with very few exceptions.

I don't mind guests having one or two friends over during the day (so long as I'm told) but the nightly limit is capped at 6 guests, and any friends that visit must leave by 10 pm.

2) Massage chair: please don't use it for more than 30 minutes at a time. It needs a 15 minute pause between sessions otherwise it could break.

3) No smoking in the house.

4) Please do not order pay-per-view movies on cable. Between the x-box, amazon TV, and cable, there are thousands of movies to watch for free. If you do wish to order a movie that costs, please let me know via text prior to ordering.

5) Please turn off lights and A/C or heating when checking out. Thank you.

Great location if you are going to Yosemite. Everything was top notch and what you see is exactly what you get. Gary has set up a fantastic home. Located in a rural setting, but only 20 minutes to stores and restaurants. Stay here if you are in this area and want to avoid hotels.

We had a great time at this house! There is plenty of space, comfortable furniture, wonderful pool, washer/dryer, lots of helpful amenities and toiletries, and the owner was friendly, helpful and very easy to work with! We would definitely rent this house again.

Our purpose for our travel was to see Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks. We picked Gary's place not because of the proximity but because we wanted a home that feels like home and more. This home exceeded our expectations. It's very clean, bigger than what we thought, has very generous amenities that we didn't find in Airbnb places we have stayed in the past. We love the pool, the layout of the kitchen and the family room, that awesome massage chair and our son's favorite Mr. Alligator. And although we didn't meet Gary personally, he was very responsive with all our questions. It is no surprise as to why he is a super host. We highly recommend him and their home.

I am not going to be redundant and echo the other raving comments I've read previously. Unquestionably they are all totally on point, so I'm only going to say that stumbling upon Gary's home was like finally finding that perfect relationship you've dreamt about for years. All basic needs were met and thoughtfully accented with flourishes of luxury. It's as if your secret desires have been granted. I mean really, it doesn't take long to fall in love with something that gives you everything you don't have to compromise over. There is enough space available for personal solitude, yet it's also perfectly set up for intimate activities with friends and family; this place is the ideal place to relax into. It's like coming home to the best, sigh-happy hug you can imagine after a long day. When night falls, float peacefully in the pool and gaze at the sky. The idyllic surrounding hills canopied by a lush cocktail of stars bring on such serenity that it's a wonderful way to reboot and look at the world fresh again. This is definitely a place to celebrate tranquility because any sort of raucous noise will seem jarring and abrasive in this environment. Gary, the mastermind behind this montage of comfort, is the personified version of his house. Considerate, graciously welcoming, and attentive when you need him, his "hello" made the experience here absolutely superlative. Thanks again Gary!

Tilbakemelding fra Gary:
I have never responded to a review of my house before, as I thought it would look tacky and kinda self-interested. Now that I'm closing up shop for the year, I really want to thank each and every single of you who stayed here and left nice comments. After what I went through with my dogs, this place became my mission and my sanctuary, and I have thrown most of the money I've earned back into improving the house. I love surprising people. And though it's not always convient to have to leave with my new pups while people stay, it's enabled me to both pay off bills and improve the house over and over again. So a huge thank you to all of you who have made this possible. I coined this place the 'Oasis' because of the views, but wow, it's become so much more than that now. It serves as a lesson to me: that when you go through something painful, yet channel that hurt/anger into something positive, rather than becoming cynical or bitter, dreams can come true. Love to all.

Gary's place really is an oasis on the way up to Yosemite. Located on the edge of a newer development, there are great views of the hills from the pool in the backyard. Everything in the house is high end and works flawlessly. From the big screen TV to the massage chair to the kitchen which is fully stocked. The bathrooms are stocked nicely, and the double shower upstairs was an added luxury. Communication was perfect. We made our reservation several months in advance and Gary was there to answer any questions we had early on. During he rental itself We were able to get any last minute questions about the house answered instantly over text message. This is the nicest property my family has ever rented in the US and I hope many others will enjoy this gem in the foothills of Yosemite.

If I could rate this place higher I would. The house itself was so much more than I expected. Perfect views, lovely pool, super clean, and every amenity you could ever need. The master bath alone should make you want to stay here. Plus, it's a quick drive to Fresno, so shopping and the airport are so close. Gary was the perfect host, he even gave us a tour of his home. Always answered questions quickly and fully. I loved this place!

Gary's place is very spacious and has a lot of thoughtful touches designed to make guests feel relaxed and comfortable. Our family of 6 including grandparents, enjoyed our stay while feeling like we had plenty of space to hang out and relax all day, including the pool for the kids. The house is in a secluded neighborhood, yet not terribly far from the market and to Yosemite. Gary is a terrific host and is very responsive. Thanks Gary!

I work as an attorney in the criminal justice system. I was born in Zimbabwe, Africa, and grew up in England, before moving to California 25 years ago. After serving in the US Navy, I moved to the Central Valley here, and fell in love with it. Almost anything you want to do or see is in close proximity.

My ideal guest(s) would be people who want to use my house as a base while they travel to places like Yosemite, or, those who just want to get away from life for a while and relax and unwind.

I designed this place to be a sanctuary in the countryside, and for that reason, I do not allow 'parties' or 'events', with few exceptions.

I hope you enjoy.
