The SpaceModesto is a great central location between the Bay Area and Yosemite. It is a good location for traveling nurses, business people, and those traveling for pleasure. My house is in an older neighborhood with tree-lined streets and unique homes. My home is a lovely place to stay where you will be treated special and yet feel at home.
The house is one story. This guest room faces the side yard. There is one queen size bed in the room with hardwood floors and room-darkening shades. The bathroom is right next to the room.
Parking is on the street.
In the hallway outside the room is a refrigerator and a microwave. I provide paper plates, plastic utensils, napkins, mugs, salt/pepper, sugar. Tea and coffee can be made by heating up the water in the electric kettle and coffee/tea press provided. You are welcome to eat in your room, the kitchen, the front room, or the front porch. I prefer guests NOT use the kitchen to prepare their own food.
You will be sharing a bathroom with another guest, possibly. There is a double sink so each guest has their own sink and counter space. I provide hand soap, Dixie cups, and towels. Guests should provide and use their own personal items such as shampoo, lotion, etc.
I have one dog who stays outside in the back yard most of the time. We go to great efforts to keep her from barking at night and into the morning. However, sometimes, in spite of our best efforts she still barks from time to time. Please be patient.
Modesto may not be 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. Guest AccessGuests have access to the front room, kitchen, bathroom, the guest room, and the front porch. I prefer guests to NOT use the kitchen to prepare their own food. They also have access to WiFi.
Guests should respect the space and property of me, my family, and other guests. Guests should not enter any private bedroom of me or my family or the other guests for any reason. Please keep noise to a minimum. Interaction with GuestsI try to be around to greet my guests when they arrive. However, sometimes I am not available or if guests arrive late, I will leave instructions for you to let yourself in by the key-less lock which has a numerical code. For the most part, guests are on their own, free to come and go as they wish. If you need anything, texting or calling is a good way to contact me. The NeighborhoodMy neighborhood is in an older part of Modesto with beautiful tree-lined streets. The houses are all unique and have their own personality. The Virginia Corridor walking/bike path is a great asset and is only a block away. Roseburg Square is in walking distance and you can find a grocery store, Mexican restaurant, pizza, Sushi/Chinese food, and frozen yogurt. My house is very close to the downtown area which has the Gallo Center of the Performing Arts, two movie theaters, terrific restaurants, the library, the farmers market (on Thursday and Saturday mornings). Modesto Junior College and Doctors Medical Center are both in walking distance, and Memorial Hospital is about a 10 minute drive. Getting AroundThere is public transportation a block away. I highly recommend walking or riding a bike. Other Things to NoteI now rent out three guest rooms in my house. This room shares a bathroom with other guests, if both rooms are being used. That doesn't always happen, but it is a possibility. As long as everyone is respectful of each others time and space, it should work smoothly. Guests should also keep noise to a minimum for those guests who go to bed early or sleep late.
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.
