One of two rooms available in my home in an older and quaint part of Modesto. I provide everything you need for a comfortable stay including two comfy twin beds, delicious breakfast, wi-fi, fridge, microwave. You will feel special and at home.
Modesto is a great central location between the Bay Area and Yosemite. It is also a good location close to the local hospitals for traveling nurses. My home is a lovely place to stay where you will be treated special and yet feel at home.
My house is in a beautiful part of Modesto. I think I have a very pretty home. I prepare very delicious and lovely breakfasts. I enjoy treating my guests special.
The house is one story. The guest room faces the backyard. There are two single beds in the room with hardwood floors. The bathroom is right next to the room. The guest room has a microwave, a compact refrigerator/freezer, and an electric tea kettle.
Guests have access to the front room, kitchen, bathroom, the guest room, and the front porch. They also have access to WiFi.
You will be sharing a bathroom with my daughter. She and I keep it clean and tidy. There is a double sink so the guest has their own sink and counter space. Guests should expect to provide and use their own personal items such as shampoo, lotion, etc. My daughter will need access to the bathroom from 6:00 to 6:40 am on weekdays to get ready for school.
I have two dogs who stay outside in the back yard all the time. We go to great efforts to keep them from barking at night and into the morning. However, sometimes, in spite of our best efforts they still bark from time to time. Please be patient.
I try to be around to greet my guests when they arrive, but sometimes it will be my daughter or my son who will let you in and show you the room and the bathroom.
I like to serve my guests a nice home cooked breakfast. A menu is provided to choose from.
My neighborhood is in an older part of Modesto with beautiful tree-lined streets. The houses are all unique and have their own personality. There is a great bike/walking path. There are a lot of great places right in walking distance. My house is very close to the downtown area, Modesto Junior College, and Doctors Medical Center and Memorial Hospital is about a 10 minute drive.
There is public transportation a block away. I highly recommend walking or riding a bike (which you can borrow from me).
Let's face it, Modesto is not a "destination city." But I have found some gems that make it a pleasure to live here. There are great restaurants, the best farmers market around, wonderful entertainment venues, terrific weather, and friendly people. Plus Yosemite is just up the road (sort of). Check out my guidebook or just ask me.
Other Things to Note
I now rent out two guest rooms in my home so guests may have to share the bathroom with the other guests.
I generally do not serve breakfast to guests staying 7 days or longer due to the reduced weekly and monthly rates.
Guests may hang out in the guest room, living room, kitchen, front porch, and back patio only. Guests are not allowed to smoke anywhere on the property. Limited alcohol is acceptable, but drunk or rowdy behavior is not. Quiet-time is from 10 pm to 8 am. I am more than happy to show you around and make suggestions on places to eat or visit.
Guests need to provide and use their own personal hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, lotion, etc.
Judy was a wonderful host. She was very flexible with her check-in time and exceptionally accommodating. Her space was just as pictured, clean and comfortable room and bathroom. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to order, it was great start to the morning. Thanks again.
The perfect accommodation for my two-day business trip to Modesto. A quiet room on a quiet street in a charming, centrally located home. Made-to-order breakfast was delicious, and a much welcomed frill. If in Modesto again for business, I'd certainly hope Judy's not booked.
Wow! What can I say? What an enjoyable and relaxing time. I stayed with Judy in Modesto, California from 12/24-12/25. I arrived a bit late on Christmas Eve and was greeted by her daughter who was very kind and showed me to my room and other amenities. Everything was decorated for the holidays, very organized, and tidy. The house is in a quaint neighborhood that dates (my guess) from the 1930's, 40's, and 50's. The area and her home was very inviting and I felt like I was visiting distant relatives rather than staying at a stranger's home. After a very peaceful and restful sleep, I woke up to the smell of coffee brewing and breakfast being made. I'll be honest...I've stayed at a few places on Airbnb, but NO ONE has made breakfast like Judy has. I felt like I was at home. I sat with her and her son and daughter and enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Day breakfast of grapefruit garnished with a cherry, waffles, crisp bacon, and hot coffee. What a treat. Everything was delicious and the company was pleasant. After breakfast I left to go visit my cousin and then journey south to Los Angeles. Though my stay was brief, Judy made it a great and memorable experience. I recommend a stay with Judy anytime. She is very hospitable and gracious. Definitely a 5 star rating! Thank you, Judy. - Alfred from Austin, TX
Judy was a great host. Breakfast was really delicious. The breakfast was served at a little table by the window... very nice. We really enjoyed our stay.
This was my first AirBnB experience and I didn't know what to expect. Judy was very nice, the place was clean, and breakfast was great. Judy even invited me to dinner the first night. She and her family were cordial about sharing their private home. Overall, I would recommend her place and I'm looking forward to trying AirBnB again on my next trip.
Judy was very busy during our stay, so we didn't have much time to talk with her, but she left us some things for breakfast in our room, which was very clean. All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
I am a single mother and self-employed. I was a teacher most of my adult life. About two years ago I started a new business called Dragonfly Tea Room. My long-term goal is to have an actual tea room in the area. For now I sell loose-leaf tea at the local farmer's market and I do "in-home" tea parties. I am interested in all things having to do with tea and "having tea." Also enjoy gardening, reading, and hiking. I am also very active in my church and my Christian faith is an important part of my life. If you have a need you would like me to pray about, please feel free to let me know.
I enjoy traveling when I can, but for the most part as I am kept pretty busy with my business.
I have two children living at home. My middle child, Luke, is 22 years old and works for ASAP HVAC. My daughter, Leah, is 18 and is involved in many activities and has high aspirations. I have an older son, Noah, who graduated from Sac State and lives in Sacramento.
I started as a host for AirBnb at the end of May 2013. It has been a very positive experience so far. It has been fun meeting people from all over the world. I read about AirBnb in Sunset magazine a couple of years ago. I had a spare room and thought hosting would be a good idea. I have recently added another guest room to my listing. We will see how that goes. I enjoy making people feel at home and making them feel special at the same time.
