Guest access
-Guests staying at Green Owl Home enjoy private use of the of the house except for my private apartment, art studio and office which are attached to the house with separate entrances*
-I encourage you to take nature walks on the property. You may see my husband and I working on the property. If you have any questions about the trees and gardens I'm happy to answer them.
-There is an apartment size refrigerator in the dining room that is solely for guest use. If you need more refrigerator space I'm happy to share the refrigerator in the kitchen. There will be some personal food stored in the refrigerator.
-The garage is a private space not available for guest use.
*NOTE: Green Owl is my home which I'm happy to share on Airbnb. As such you will see personal items in closets and in the home. When not rented out as a whole house rental I also rent the bedrooms separately on Airbnb. As mentioned earlier, my husband and I have an attached apartment at the back of the house which is separated by a locked, professionally installed, folding door but it is not sound proof. We ask, if we are at home, that loud talking and music be turned down at 11 pm. Thank you

Other things to note
-Because I'm out in the back country I can only get satellite Wi-Fi which means our Internet service at Green Owl in really slow; therefore please download movies, U-tube videos or image rich content before you arrive. Streaming movies, gaming or other graphic intense use of the internet is disappointing and involves lots of buffering. The Internet works fine for all other use like checking emails and looking things up on the web. It's just not speedy. There is no password needed for internet service, just click on "greenowl guest" to log in. If you need to do something that requires cable internet speed you can always do what I do, go to the Julian public library, which has high speed internet, great art work and is a super friendly place where you will see lots of locals (using the internet ;)

Location

Julian, California, United States

Green Owl is located in the lovely Pine Hills neighborhood of Julian. It is a great neighborhood to explore on foot or by bike, although it is important to be careful on mountain roads! Keep an eye out for deer, turkeys, rabbits the occasional fox, bobcat, coyotes, lots of different species of birds, Steller Crested Blue Jays, Robins, Goldfinches and Quail. Across the street from Green Owl is the historic stone house that used to be the Julian apple packing station in the 1800s, later it became the home of Scott O’Dell the author of the historic fictional novel, Island of the Blue Dolphins. William Heise County Park, a great place to go for a hike, take kids to a fun playground, or go have a picnic, is only minutes from Green Owl.
