The space

Guest access


Interaction with guests

We enjoy interacting with our guests…the frequency of that depends on the guest and our personal schedule.

The neighborhood

The College neighborhood is the neighborhood surrounding our beloved Modesto Jr. College. It is an older neighborhood established in the 40s, with beautiful tree lined streets and charming houses. It boarders downtown, Graceada Park neighborhood, and Roosevelt Park neighborhood. There is a small shopping center at one end of the neighborhood that has a locally owned grocery store, and several fun and tasty restaurants. It also has several small gyms, a pub, frozen yoghurt, and laundry mat. There is a new walking trail to one edge of the neighborhood that goes north to south for roughly 2 miles. It is a great place to go for an evening stroll, jog, or mellow bike ride. We think this is the best neighborhood in Modesto!

Very comfortable setting. Jeff & family were accommodating, and made our transition into Modesto, much easier. Perfect location for getting acquainted w/Modesto. Water-heater is on the smaller side; everything else was perfect.

Great location in a beautiful safe neighborhood. I stayed here on a travel nursing contract and it was perfect. Spacious studio furnished with everything you need.

Jeff and his family were perfect hosts. They were very welcoming and provided anything you would need for an extended stay. The studio space was perfect for me and my roommate to live while our apartment was renovated and not once did I feel like it was too crowded. I would highly recommend this space to anyone looking for a peaceful and safe place to stay!

We only stayed 1 night of our planned weeklong stay, as the heater wasn't able to heat the uninsulated room in the unseasonably cold November. Jeff was a gracious host, and the room would have been comfortable in warm weather. No TV in the room! Floor-to-ceiling curtains on the large windows were too narrow to provide privacy.

Response from Jeff:
I apologize I you could not figure out how to use the heater; it can be a bit confusing because it is a remote operated unit. Next time please let me know you have an issue and I would be more than glad to help. The studio is made of cinderblock walls and it on a slab floor, it has insulation to code in the attic and new double pane (URL HIDDEN) is as insulated as it can be. There is no TV in the room, which is clearly listed, but has high speed wireless internet. I have never had complaints about the curtains and am sorry you felt the curtains were too narrow.

Our family stayed in this wonderful apartment for three months. The space is small but laid out well. The bed is so comfortable and we loved the private outdoor area. Jeff was always prompt to answer any questions we had, and he and his wife have the cutest family! Safe neighborhood and excellent location.

We are from Modesto, California, USA. My wife is a nurse and I farm and manage residential real estate. We have two children, Sam & Stella. We enjoy spending time with friends, being outdoors, exploring new things, and eating good food!

We found out about Airbnb when we were planning a trip to Europe. We had several great stays with hosts thru Airbnb. It got us thinking about the detached studio on our property and then eventually we have grown to include some of our 1 bedroom apartments. We look forward to hosting you and helping you navigate to the best parts of Modesto!
