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.
We felt comfortable and very much at home. Beautiful neighborhood.
Judy is a warm and gracious host.
Judy was extremely gracious and accommodating for what turned out to be a very late arrival on our part. She stayed up late and even shared her pizza dinner with us. I experienced an extremely comfortable and quiet sleep in her excellent guest room. I play senior softball in cities all around her "Big Yello House" and hope to stay there again this season.
It was a pleasure staying at the big yellow house. Judy was very accommodating, she was very patient while I was trying to set up my account. Communication was very good. To be honest, I did not spend a whole lot of time there, but everything I did need was readily on hand. Would definitely recommend staying at the big yellow house.
I had a most pleasant stay at Judy's Big Yellow House. I just moved to modesto for work and didn't have a place to stay. This was a perfect landing point. Located in a beautiful neighborhood, the house was very peaceful and warm. The breakfast, coffee and conversation was bar none. I highly recommend staying here!
The Big Yellow House was the perfect place for me. Basic and simple accommodations, comfortable bed, easy ground level entrance and very affordable.

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.
