The Space

Modesto is a great central location between the Bay Area and Yosemite. 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. The bathroom is right next to the room. The guest room now has a microwave and an in-room compact refrigerator/freezer.

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. Between the two of us it is kept 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 6:50 to 7:30 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. I show them the room and the bathroom and kitchen. We usually chat a little and get to know each other. Another good time to talk is in the morning around breakfast. I don't necessarily join my guests for breakfast, but it seems like a good time for conversation. I don't try to push myself on my guests. I usually try to be friendly while giving them their space. I have recently started working at the local farmer's market on Thursday and Saturday morning, therefore, I will not be available on those mornings to make a home-cooked breakfast.

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.

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

As of June 19, 2014 I have raised my prices slightly to accommodate a Transient Occupancy Tax that the City of Modesto is requiring me to pay. This is the same tax you would be required to pay in a hotel.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Judy has a beautiful house in Modesto. Modesto was an ideal stop between Yosemite and SF. The room is nice and quiet and the clim is essential. Thank you for the breakfast (Judi give us the choice).

  • Judy responded very quickly to my spur of the moment request. She has a very clean and comfortable home. Highly recommended!

  • I stayed with Judy when I was in Modesto on Business and the room was very comfortable. She has a beautiful home in a really quiet neighborhood.

    May 2014
  • We arrived later than expected, about 10 PM, and Judy was gracious about our late arrival. We had updated her by phone that that we would be late, but I suspect it was would have been much better for her if we had arrived before 9 PM as we had planned.

    The house is as advertised, and we would stay again.

  • Really cute neighborhood and house. I was only there to sleep, but was very comfortable. Thank you!

  • Judy was extremely accommodating and wonderfully flexible, from my somewhat last minute request, and in spite of the uncertainty of my plans. I found myself far from home and unavailable all day--when I got free, I was so exhausted, and Judy graciously accepted my last minute request.

    Her home was lovely, and while I had my doubts about a twin size bed--I had a wonderful shower with her super soft towels, and slept so well I almost didn't get up in the morning....I was so much better rested from my one night stay, I had a great day!

    Though I didn't have time for breakfast, I'm sure it would have been just as lovely as the rest of my stay, and I will hope the room is available to stay with her if I'm ever in her area again. I highly recommend her as a host.

  • In Modesto on Business trip with an impossible schedule the room met all of my needs.
    Bed was comfortable and the room as described, I would recommend if you want a nice quiet place.

    February 2014
  • Excellent start to my trip staying with Judy. She made a great breakfast and had good recommendations for dinner places that were interesting upon my arrival. She couldn't control the weather though, but she sure did a great job of making my stay a pleasant one.

  • Awesome place to stay. Bed was extremely comfortable and the room met all of my needs and then some. Felt very welcome here.

  • This was my first time using airbnb and I feel lucky to have stayed with Judy. I felt welcomed and even more importantly safe. She has a beautiful and clean home. Judy makes a delicious breakfast, which was quite a treat. I slept well and truly have no complaints. Judy, thank you for your hospitality! I plan to return in the future.

Dragonfly Tea Room
I am a single mother and self-employed. I was a teacher most of my adult life. About a year 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. I enjoy traveling when I can, but this summer will probably find me close to home for the most part. I am the chairperson on the Mission Board at my church. In that role I have lead two teams on short term mission trips, one to Panama and one to Philippines. I have two children living at home. My middle child, Luke, is 21 years old and works for ASAP HVAC. My daughter, Leah, is 17 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 last year. I have a spare room and thought hosting would be a good idea. 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.
