Cozy, newly remodeled and well located, our guesthouse is a great place to stay. We put lots of thought and care in designing a space that people will truly enjoy. We are located in the heart of the beautiful College neighborhood, walkable to Roseburg Square shops and food as well as the Virginia Trail. We are close to downtown and have plenty of street parking, as well as a side gate with driveway that goes right up to the guest house.

The space
**Note: only two people per reservation. It is not okay to have additional friends or family members stay over. It is some times okay if they stop by briefly, please check-in with us first.**
**Note: reservations with children will not be accepted - our pool is not gated. Infants may be acceptable, please check with us. Thank you!**

We have a large .37 acre property right in the middle of the College Neighborhood! High fences and trees surround the property so it feels very private. There are many lemon and orange trees around the property you are welcome to pick from.

The guest house is located in the rear, off of the driveway on the right side of the property. It is private and completely detached from the main house. The home has 550 square feet with an open kitchen/dining/living space, one good sized bedroom with closet as well as a full bathroom. We just finished a mini remodel with new paint and furnishings throughout! **Update 03/26/2020: We just installed a new ductless mini-split for better AC and heat (so the in-wall AC unit as shown in the photos is gone).**

Modesto, California, United States

We love our neighborhood! Our property sits right on the dividing line of what are called the "Campus Tract" and "College Manor" areas. As with most towns, the college area contains older homes and is walkable to downtown areas. It's a great place for walking around, as we are surrounded by many adorable older homes, all of various architectural styles and most are well maintained and loved.

A couple of blocks away is the Virginia Trail which is a walking/running/biking path that runs south/north through Modesto on what use to be the old train tracks. It's beautiful, well maintained, lit at night and will take you south to downtown or north to more shops and stores.

Roseburg Square is an approximate five minute walk and has a grocery store (O'Brien's Market), Starbucks, The Divine Swine restaurant and bar, Elevate Yoga, a gym and antique stores.

McHenry Village is a five minute drive and has a bunch more shops and stores including a Sprouts market.

Downtown Modesto is a five minute drive / twenty minute walk and has tons of great little restaurants and bars. We are happy to give recommendations, just ask :)

Marty is a professor at a local college and Jess is an architect/designer at a local design-build firm. We love to travel and look forward to hosting many other travelers on Airbnb.
