One of three 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, coffee/tea, wi-fi, fridge, microwave, and electric kettle. I welcome guests for any length of stay, from one day to many months. I especially enjoy long-term guests such as traveling nurses and interns. I am very close to Doctors Medical Center and Memorial Hospital

House Rules

Be respectful of other people in the house and their property.

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. Guests should not enter any private bedroom or the other guest's room for any reason. I prefer that guests NOT use the kitchen to prepare food.

Guests need to provide and use their own personal hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, lotion, etc.

I require guests to have a clear photo of themselves on their profile. Reservations should be made using the guest's own Airbnb account, not someone else's.

Judy was very nice and accommodating. Highly recommend staying here! Good for travel nurses with contracts close to DMC and Memorial!

Judy was very helpful and easy to communicate with, and the house is exactly as described. Would definitely recommend staying here if looking for somewhere close to Yosemite.

I came to Modesto to see a very special friend of mine, and I needed place to stay. I chose Judy's place because it seemed to have a great value and very positive reviews. After having stayed there for nine nights and meeting Judy, I can safely say she's very much earned her ratings. She's a very friendly host who and the place is very comfortable and friendly. The neighborhood is excellent, especially given the town, and is not too far a walk from restaurants or convenience stores if needed. I'm was very happy with my stay in Modesto and was quite sad to leave. If you're planning to stay in Modesto, I highly recommend a room at the Big Yellow House if there's room!

Judy User Profile

I am a single mother and self-employed. I was a teacher most of my adult life. About four 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. I have leased a space in the nearby Roseburg Square and preparations are underway for this next phase of my business. 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." 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. Now that my daughter is going to school in New York, I expect I will be traveling there several times a year. I grew up in Denver and lived in Colorado until graduating from college. I lived on the East Coast (Massachusetts and New York) for 14 years. I moved to Modesto in 1999, dragging my feet, but I've learned to appreciate the area, especially the weather, access to great fruits and vegetables, and the many places to visit in California.

I have three children. My daughter, Leah, is 20 and is attending New York University so she is only home during vacation. My middle child, Luke, is 24 years old and works for ASAP HVAC and he lives in Ceres, CA. I have an older son, Noah, who graduated from Sac State, recently married, 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 enjoy making people feel at home and making them feel special at the same time.

My life motto: the Golden Rule - Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
