My wife, kids and I recently had the chance to stay at the Bungalows at Village West. I can not overstate what an incredible experience we had. Everything was clean and decor was spot on. The Bungalow had a full stocked kitchen, living area w/ pull out couch, spacious bathroom, queen sized memory foam mattress in the bedroom, amazing linens, and I think the best part for me was the huge deck right on the water. With seating for at least six, gas grill and umbrella. My wife and I would sit on the deck in morning and drink our coffee and I think we grilled and eat outside almost every night. The staff was very warm and accommodating. Gated community w/ key fob entry. We had an amazing stay and will be back for future trips. Thank you Village West, you guys are awesome. Special shout out to Sam Schleder in the front office, you are amazing! Thanks again, Mike and Valerie Wilkes

Don D's review reminded me of one of Bob and my favorite places to go to watch the sunset. Sometimes Bob gets a wild hair, calls me at work and says...wanna go watch the sunset?...that can occur at several places but my favorite local spot is at Village West Marina....sometimes we go to happy hour at Garlic Brothers to watch, and sometimes we just sit out on the bench by the dock and watch. There's usually a fisherman or two casting out, but other than that we have the place to ourselves with the exception of a duck or two. Cheap date and peaceful easy feelin' in the middle of it all!

The Village Marina in a great place to dock your boat plus they have garlic brothers and a few other restaurants in the area sandwich shops and you got easy access to the Delta with your boat to launch it or you can also docket in the marina great place to dock your boat and have a drink and sail off into the sunset and do the delta.

Kimberley W.


This is our home Marina for our boat for the last 4 years and we love it out there it is so beautiful. The staff are always friendly and they make us feel very at home and secure. We love what the new owners of done with it and how they have been attentive to the security out there. We are going to keep calling this our boat home.

Glenn P.


Great place, the staff and manager's are very knowledge. Two great places to eat plus they have a store on site.

New owners are making improvements all over the marina from beautification to grounds, & trying to stay on top of the hyincinth removal. Recently lowered slip rental fees. New dog park is complete and very nice.

Sam S.


We've been visiting village west with our boat for 13+ years. For the last 9 years we've kept our boat in a slip year round. This is by far and away the best marina on the delta. It's always clean, the staff are friendly, and the other tenants there are great. The other reviewer who is complaining about the hydrohoist is way off, the marina has nothing to do with hoist and shouldn't be held accountable.

Bill W.


Village West Marina is one of the great destinations in the California Delta. The staff is wonderful and the grounds are beautiful! No boat? No problem! they have cabins and RV spaces for you too plus two excellent restaurants! Fuel and an onsite Stop & Shop are available. Don't forget the Em-Bark-adero for your pooch!

Suzie B.


WE have two boats here and we absolutely love the new ownership and their management. The place has been improved, always clean and inviting. Convenient location near two awesome restaurants. Looking forward to our Lighted Boat Parade Events. Village West Marina is offering free docking space to our participants from far away, so they don't have to boat home at night. Santa Claus is coming on Friday night...very community minded. Love It!

My Wife & I moved to Village West Marina Dec.1st of last year. We wanted to be closer to Interstate 5 and berth prices are great! At first we were a little nervous because of the large size of the marina but things have changed a lot with the new owners. I think there has been quite significant changes for the good! The owners are boaters and you can really tell that they love what they are doing by all the repairs and additions constantly. If we ever have a concern or need a repair of some sort they are on it! Seems like the employees are happy and always willing to lend a hand if needed. We have a new dog on the way so the new doggie park will be great! If you are thinking of moving into this Marina I highly recommend it and know you won't be sorry! We look forward to be in this little slice of paradise right in Stockton every week! Call Vickie or anyone in office , and they truly would love to help you.

Janice R.


We've had our boat here for years and love how beautiful it is here and the good slip prices and all the nice amenities, and the great food at Garlic Brothers and Bobs. Also so close to conveniences. Love shopping at Marina Market. Close to I-5 and from Elk Grove less than 30 minutes. Recommended.

Janice P.


The most friendly, caring staff in the Delta. The owners really care about the berthers and work constantly to make the slips and grounds clean, safe and attractive. Having had our boat moored at four other marinas over the years Village West is a “10”. Way above any of the others!

Michael H.


Fantastic marina, now has RV parking, bungalows, Garlic Bros. Bob's and yacht club. I give it a 5 star rating plus a few more.

Bill D.


This is one of the premier marinas in the Delta. A great place to keep your boat with a yacht club onsite as well as two excellent restaurants! Oh yes, did I mention the friendly and dedicated staff!

Louise L.


Best well-kept Marina in the San Joaquin Delta. The harbor masters are helpful and nice. The two restaurant here are great!!! Bob’s at the Marina and Garlic Brothers

I love this place and love that the new owners are an actual family not a big corp.The new ownership are making consistent improvements to make this place one of the best marinas in Nor Cal. All the staff are friendly and professional and I love the new store on the fuel dock!!

One of the best Marina’s in the area. They have two restaurants that you can access from the water and also the road. Plenty of parking for your boat and your car and a large and nice docking area for your boat. These restaurants were open on Sunday. Also, the gas station was open on Sunday till 6:00pm or so. Check locations for hours. The also have a Yacht Club. This Marina seemed to accommodate large boats up to 60 feet.

Great place! Very friendly staff! I needed a floating device for my keys on my new boat. They were very friendly and offered me one at no charge! Thank you for being very kind!

Don D.

Great place to come and have dinner, launch your boat or just watch the sunset. This is a real treat if you can’t make it out to the delta on a boat and want to enjoy all the benefits that the delta had to offer. Mile and miles of waterways. Don’t forget to visit Bob’s or Garlic Brother’s for great food. Oh ya, watch out for “murder island.”

Moniqu Bob


We had such a wonderful time staying in the Bungalow’s! So clean with everything we needed!! The place has a beautiful deck! Ohhhh... the Sunset! The staff is absolutely the very best! So helpful!! The people are what bring you back! Vicki and Josiline are two of many that help set this place apart!! We booked 3 Bungalows in July for a family reunion and can’t wait! Thank you for making it a destination spot for us!!

Yolanda G.


We recently rented several of the bungalows. The stay was absolutely perfect, from the start the bungalows are incredibly welcoming, spacious and comfortable. The decor makes you feel like being in a mini paradise. The kitchen area is well stocked and ready to prepare whatever kind of food you bring in, very convenient. Our families enjoyed several barbecues on the beautiful deck...grills were ready to go and are awesome. The sunsets were priceless! Overall, we give our stay at the Village West Marina an infinity thumbs up


We loved this little cottage so much! So perfect for us and our dogs...the location was great for getting around Stockton. We loved the deck and outside areas, so relaxing. Easy access to walk your dogs and supplies to clean up after and a small dog park to boot! Everyone was so nice that we came in contact with. Place was clean and well equipped and included a bbq on the large deck, TVs in front room and bedroom and Netflix and full kitchen. Overall, a big win for us...we felt lucky to have found this little oasis. Loved waking up to seeing ducks gliding by in the morning...thank you!


Wonderful. This bungalow was just as described, seems well designed and well maintained. Huge deck overlooking the water will be great in nice weather. Waking up to the view of the water is very calming. I'll absolutely be back! The best thing for me was how easy it was to have my dog there -- staying in hotels with the dog is miserable because he will bark every time a door opens/closes. This unit had enough separation from the three other bungalows and the boats that it worked perfectly. Also plenty of greenspace for the dog's business. The unit is very well designed to maximize space and amenities, some nice perks include ample electrical outlets, several with USB direct plug-ins; Open shelving and closet space in master bedroom with folding luggage rack; coat hooks along hallway; cozy blanket in living room; well equipped kitchen. A lot of little things that really add up to make it a fantastic stay. Very clean -- I walked around barefoot or in white socks, and my feet were clean! Hard to do with a laminate flooring. Bungalows are within a secured community. So it might be a challenge if you were hoping to get food delivered or have visitors. Community overall seems very well cared for. Communication with the host was a breeze.

Best kept secret on the Delta hate to give this five stars don’t want people to find it might get discovered !Bungalows are beautiful and so are the perfect views of Delta!

Erica C.


We had a great mini vacation at Village West Marina. Bungalow 4 was very comfortable and clean. The entire facility including the launch ramp and slip provided for us was easy to use and readily accessible. Thank you Vickie!

Jen T.


Your property was beautiful. We were able to get away and really relax. The bungalow was well equipped with everything needed. It was so clean and comfortable. We just loved it. The view on the deck was exceptional. From eating breakfast with the morning breeze to watching the sunset in the evening. It was so peaceful and extremely quiet. We both cannot wait to come back. I recommend these bungalows to anyone who would like to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Thanks so much for your hospitality.

Charles E.


Clean, Comfortable and love the large deck overlooking the water. We cooked out and enjoyed the evenings. Highly recommended for something different other than just a hotel room.


I loved this little bungalow. I had no idea something like this existed in Stockton. It was so peaceful and serene and the amenities were amazing. I definitely look forward to staying here again during my future Stockton trips!

Kenneth M.


Brand new, absolutely clean bungalow on the Delta's 18-mile slough. Big deck off the front side on the rivers edge. Comfortable seating for 10 people and a new gas BBQ. Reserved parking space at the bungalow and plenty of nearby also for any additional cars. Comfortable bed, comfortable sofa bed. Spotlessly clean! Will definitely return.

Tracey L.


We are berthers at Village West Marina and thought it would be fun to have my brother and sister in law come and visit from Tucson AZ and stay in the new bungalows. We rented 2 units for 3 days and had a wonderful time! The units exceeded our expectations and were very comfortable with all accommodations you would ever need. Deck is large with plenty of seating and bbq worked great too. Vickie and the crew made this visit effortless and enjoyable for all of us. Now we are planning another stay soon! Guy & Tracey

Will and Yolanda G.


What a great place to wake up too. Early morning coffee and breakfast on the deck was one of our favorite things to do.

Tom P.


This property is unique in its location and offers a host of amenities to make for a comfortable and quite relaxing stay. The deck view cannot be beat.

Jill C.


Great location and amenities, super people. Vickie and her team are awesome.

Paul & Rhonda R.


Best deal on the Delta, bar none! Vickie and Tim are the best hosts and really care that everything is just right so that you enjoy your stay. Everyone we met, from the staff to the other boat owners, are so nice that you feel as if you already know everyone that you meet. Very peaceful and relaxing...as soon as you enter the property you feel as if you are somewhere away from everything even though you are only a mile from the freeway. Everything is clean and well kept...we'll definitely be back.

Suzanne C.


Beautiful place to spend time with family and friends

Erica C.


The property is beautiful and everyone at the Marina treated us awesome. We will be back for sure! Thank you Vickie!

Jeff B.


Very nice stay and convenient for marina tenants’ guests. Clean, comfortable, and quiet.

It's always a pleasure visiting up in Stockton and seeing everyone at Village Marina West! The cottages are always so lovely and clean!

Charnell B.


Our first time using homeaway and this bungalow was clean, w/comfortable bed & bedding and did I say clean!! View of the marina boats and very peaceful. It rained both days but we loved it!! A perfect place for a getaway!!

Pleasantly surprised. Shower a little claustrophobic. Otherwise great. Thumbs up.

Village West Marina's Deluxe "Delta" Vacation Bungalow is a great way to relax and enjoy the beauty of the California Delta. Featuring a full-service marina with two restaurants, boat launch, boat rentals, a convenience store and endless recreation opportunities - it's all at your fingertips. However, my experience had me simply enjoying the peaceful breeze and majestic views of Mt. Diablo. While the interior of the bungalow is immaculate with one of the most comfy beds you'll ever sleep on, the deck really steals the show. With 600-square feet of space, seating for 10, two lounge chairs, a loveseat and a nice table with umbrella, I found myself outside most of the time. Not to mention a brand-new propane grill that works wonders for a perfect barbecue on the water. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils, dishes and cutlery with a microwave, dishwasher and brand-new fridge. It makes staying here feel just like home, but in a setting that is paradise. I recommend staying here for anyone trying to get away from it all. Locally, it's a great central location that allows for day trips to the coast or the mountains. It's also great as a destination. I was happy staying put and just enjoying 14-Mile Slough, the boats coming in and the abundance of Delta wildlife. Stay here, you won't be disappointed! It far exceeded my expectations! 5 stars.

Erica H.


Very enjoyable stay...can’t wait to go back!

Lyndall H.


Excellent accommodations in every respect. Very comfortable and relaxed setting. Would like to come back and stay longer.

Thom M.


My pets and I enjoyed our short time there, unfortunately we had to leave after one day of our four day vacation due to a medical emergency. I plan to visit again in the future and take advantage of all amenities.

Jody L.


Easy check in and perfect place to stay!

Warren S.


Very clean and well furnished. Good location to visit Lodi wine country. Near to stores and shopping. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Everything was great during our stay at the bungalows.

John S.


Great service. Great spot. Employees were helpful and very pleasant.

Jody L.


Beautiful place to stay

Mark R.


Would rent the cabin again and refer friends!

Jeffrey S.


Everything was great. The weather was awesome. The unit we stayed in was new, very nicely decorated, well equipped and a great location. The 2 restaurants on site were really nice. The housekeeping staff was nice and overall awesome. They would ask if we needed anything and I said that I didn't they would go through a list to make sure I hadn't forgotten anything. The front office staff was also great. They were always helpful and just wanted to please. The only very small issue I had was with the launch ramp which was a little awkward to use. I found out that sometime soon they are going to get a tractor and will be able launch my boat for me. I will probably go for that option next time. We have been going to the Delta for years now and staying in a different area. This stay was every bit as good or even better and a lot easier to get to from Los Angeles. I really don't know why I am writing this review because next year there will be more people competing to stay there.

Charles B.


Nice and clean and very reasonable I really love staying there two days a week

Marcie B.


Such a nice location and view. We found it to just a perfect place to relax and have friends join us on the patio. The weather was great. So much better than a hotel with the kitchenette and sitting room. We will stay here again if our travels bring us this way again. It is also a very quiet and peaceful location.

Mitzi C.


The weather was awesome! The deck was the perfect place to relax and view the scenery. Fishing was good during high tide. The room was spotless and was supplied with everything we could need. Restaurants were within walking distance. A perfect weekend getaway.

Suzanne C.


Wonderful place to come unwind.. Very peaceful

Deirdre W.


This unit has a nice view of the Delta. It is a good size for my husband, myself and our dogs. Tim provided excellent customer service by addressing our concerns and made things right. We would stay here again!

Charles S.


Place was clean and new. Great view of the delta.

Mariza D.


This is our second trip to the bungalows and I must say, the view, and peaceful atmosphere never gets old. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Bungalows are clean. We will continue to return.

Jody L.


Perfect!

Kim S.


I can't express how great the Vacation Rental was for us this past week. We ended up taking our ski boat for a quick, unplanned summer family vacation. Instead of driving home, we booked this for 2 nights. Since we came by boat with no car, we talked to Vickie and she set us up for a berth too that was close to the cottage for a nominal fee. Everything was perfect, and Vickie plus everyone we met could not have been nicer. The cottage has one bedroom with sliding glass door onto the huge deck. A fully stocked kitchen (no oven, but dishwasher and full refrigerator and microwave, plus a gas BBQ). Everything was new and in excellent condition. There were 4 of us, so we used the pull-out sleeper couch and one of us ended up sleeping on the deck too. They even take dogs. So lovely. 2 restaurants in the marina, but we only checked out Bob's for breakfast. Grocery store nearby too. After 2 days we wanted to stay 2 more, but they were booked. We will definitely be back soon. Five stars is not enough!

Tyler S.


What a perfect location on the delta. From the amazing bungalows to the great restaurants and even better the late night and early morning boat rides. We will be back for sure. My kids are already asking when we are going back. Vickie does a great job. Thank you

David S.


For the price of an average hotel room you can relax in a very well appointed bungalow on the water! Why not? Really enjoyed our stay in this clean and modern bungalow with all the comforts of home. Even had fresh flowers and Dove chocolates in the room upon arrival! The marina is a wonderful setting with terrific dining at Garlic Brothers. Will definitely return to the Bungalows when we visit Stockton again.

Garrett S.


This place was just what we needed. Clean, quiet and private. Caught 14 catfish off the deck. Only a 15 minute drive to wineries. Would definitely stay here again.

Pamela P.


Relaxing and perfect!

Bennet D.


Over all, a great experience. Vickie and her staff are very accommodating, and friendly. The bungalow was clean, and fresh, with all the amenities we could ask for. Fresh flowers were a nice touch. Very safe, and secure. Would rate five stars, if boat trailer parking we're available near the launch ramp.

James S.


The bungalow was very comfortable and nice. We came there to relax and fish and expectations was met. Need to have a fish cleaning station, and bait and tackle shop on the premises was nice but very expensive. Thanks for the good time though.

Stephanie F.


This is a really cool studio. There are 4 bungalow's in a row, and you might think that you would not have any privacy, but the tree's in the decks offer a very nice bit of privacy. The view is of farmland and water right in front of your spacious deck. The beds are firm but very comfy, and almost no noise. Except Saturday night when the yacht club rocks a bit. The only problem is the decks face west and get very hot as the sun sets. You could try to eat by 6 or wait till 8:30. Or just go to the Garlic Brothers and have a real good meal. The TV only gets really old tv shows, but we are not adept at getting news on Netflix. Also there is an exercise club with a swimming pool and hot tub for a reasonable sum within walking distance.

Lovely bungalow with great furnishings and decor. Located inside Village West Marina, there is easy access to the boat ramp and great fishing. Also connected to the marina are two restaurants for great dining options. This a great base for anyone who wants explore and/or fish the San Joaquin Delta. The friendly staff makes the visit effortless.

David P.


Great property and all of the people we came in contact with were great from check in to the housekeeping gals. I look forward to my next visit. Thank you again for a great stay.

Charles E.


Comfortable, cozy and loved cooking out on the large deck overlooking the water, Simply Simple !

Tyler S.


I absolutely loved unit 1. We stayed in 1 & 2 and if it’s only 2 people I loved the open layout of 1. These bungalows are perfect for relaxing with great views. Vickie set me up with a slip for the boat. The patios on these units make them. They are huge and have great views of the sun sets. We will definitely be back. Thank you for everything

Jen T.


We loved our very peaceful stay!

Mark G.


Well thought out layout and clean with a great sunset view.

Lorie C. S.


Vicky and her staff are wonderful to work with! The bungalows are always clean and extremely comfortable. We come up to Stockton for both business and pleasure and thoroughly enjoy staying here. We will definitely be back again next month!

Rene M.


Absolutely charming!! So tranquil it's hard to believe you're in a city! Stopped on our way through so we only stayed one day/evening but really enjoyed such a peaceful break. Had dinner on site at Garlic Brothers. Yummy!? HIGHLY recommended!!!

Pamela P.


What a perfect place to unwind! The location is perfect and the bungalow heavenly! Thank you!!

Tom S.


I was in town for work and the Bungalows were a perfect place to rest. I will absolutely stay here again if I am in the area.

Michael A.


Had a relaxing stay it this clean, new, and modern bungalow. I will stay again.

Suzanne C.


A perfect place to spend a weekend.. Very nice accommodations, with beautiful views.

Glenn R.


My husband and I spent three nights at Bungalow #4. It was amazing! The amenities that these units offer are top notch. There is a full kitchen, living area, bath, and bedroom with a queen bed. We were a little anxious about the size of the bed as we are used to sleeping in a king bed, but it was perfect! Plenty of room.

John L.


Our stay was superb! Our Bungalow was designer decorated and equipped with all the amenities needed for a perfect stay. There is a large deck with an abundance of patio furniture and a gas barbecue. The views from the deck were spectacular both day and night. It made us feel like we were on our own little Island. With two great restaurants in the Marina and the wine country close by, how could we ask for more. We are looking forward to our next stay.

Mariza D.


These bungalows are a Tranquil piece of heaven and truly a hidden gem. We enjoyed a full week of front seat sunsets and boat/ nature watching. It truly felt like a retreat! Staff was accommodating and cheerful. Bungalow was tastefully decorated and had most amenities needed for meal preparations. We will definitely be returning for another rejuvenating experience.

Kevin G.


The little bungalows have everything you need. The deck is spacious. We fished off the deck but didn't catch anything. It was so peaceful being close to the water and much quieter than I expected. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Steven W.


My girl and I loved it! Three nights and I never got tired of the view. It's like your on the delta all by yourself. Everything was clean, the equipment worked perfect. All we had to do was have a good time. And we did--on the delta.

Kellye G.


The Riverside Bungalow is a lovely property in a secure location at the Marina. It was very comfortable with many extras, including welcome flowers and chocolates. The reserved parking close to the Bungalow was convenient and the view from the porch was so peaceful! Two yummy restaurants at the entrance to the Marina are within walking distance and a grocery store is located close by. A superb stay!

Steven W.


My girlfriend and I were so relaxed and comfortable we were depressed because we had to leave. You'd think we'd been there a week instead of two nights. The dishes and utensils and other equipment worked great. It was a bargain.

Jeff S.


The amenities included in these bungalows were beyond our expectations. From "state of the art" kitchen appliances, smart TVs, fast and free internet, to a fully stocked bathroom, and a nice Dove chocolate candy dish... everything was provided. Then there is the outside deck. Complete with a patio dining set, two chaise loungers and a propane plumbed BBQ, there was really little need to go inside... except for drink ice from the provided ice maker. And as quiet and tranquil as the morning experience was, we were not alone... geese, duck, turtles and river otters kept us company and entertained. This is definitely an experience that should be on everyone's list. We will be going back for sure. Oh, and the view... doesn't get much better!

Lorie M.


We just happened upon this little piece of heaven and thoroughly enjoyed being on the delta. The bungalow is very nicely decorated and the deck was probably the best part! Overlooking the delta, with comfortable furnishings, we enjoyed our evenings with a glass of wine and a beautiful sunset.

Gene C.


We were super impressed! This was a quick overnight on our way south but we could really see staying and enjoying the area, esp if we brought our kayaks. It was clean and well supplied. We loved cooking our own food and sitting on the deck in the evening and morning and enjoying watching the delta wildlife. It is great to know there is a walking trail and restaurants to go to for next time. We highly recommend the Vacation Bungalows! If we could ask for one change it would be better (blackout) shades on the bedroom window facing the marina....there was a lot of light even with the shades closed. Thanks!
