About Paul Burgio

Hello everyone,

I live in San Diego about one hour away from my cabin. I've had so much fun remodeling it over the past 16 years. I love to cook and entertain for my family and friends. Love soaking in the jacuzzi under the mountain stars, listening to the fireplace, playing music, nobody ever wants to leave. We have so much fun!

Many renters come back each year.

I look forward to meeting you,

Paul Burgio

Paul Burgio purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Paul Burgio chose Julian

My cabin has such a warm comfortable historic feeling to it.

Very cozy! A great getaway from the city noise with a huge great room and kitchen area to spread out in!

What makes this cabin unique

It is nestled in a very quiet neighborhood of Pine Hills within walking distance of the Historic 1912 Pine Hills Lodge. Almost every weekend they are hosting a wedding or two, live music and or Sunday brunch open to the public.

Renters love sitting on the upper back deck listening to birds reading their favorite book or enjoying their favorite drink gazing out to Volcan Mtn.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I had a wonderful time! We would to come back again! Beautiful home with a great historic feeling!

Best house ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Burgio Bungalow is the BEST home that I have ever rented. I went there with some friends to celebrate birthdays and an after-holiday shindig together. We were amazed by the beauty of the home and everything that it has to offer. The amenities were a plenty, from the hot tub and pool table to all of the kitchen supplies and spices. The themed rooms and the overall decor was so fun as well!

Paul was wonderful communicating and made sure he was available if we needed anything (which we didn't - it was perfect!)

If you are looking for a place in Julian, I highly recommend the Burgio Bungalow! We are already planning a time to come back!!

Thank you for providing a space for us to come together and enjoy the weekend.

The Great Escape!

  • 4 of 5


Thank you for opening your amazing home to us last weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The decor, both inside and out, is charming and filled with surprises every where you look. We were visited by MANY wild turkeys as well as 4 different deer was wonderful.

Once again, many thanks for the memorable weekend retreat!

Amazing cabin. So much to look at and do and the views! 😍

  • 5 of 5

The owner gave us a quick tour of his home and where things were. Gave us a little history about the home which was cool also. We played pool and darts. Say by the fire and spoke together and went into town. We especially loved all the themes in the House. Wish the shower was normal but not a big deal and it was interesting to use a tub like that. Overall we loved it!

Perfect Thanksgiving Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Paul was very accommodating and very accessible. The cabin was very peaceful and we had deer and wild turkey visits all throughout our stay. We would love to stay here again on our next visit. Highly recommended!!

Perfect wedding weekend experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home for two days in May, as our daughter was being married in a nearby venue. We couldn't have asked for a better place for our family to spend those two days. Its fully equipped kitchen helped us feed our children and grandchildren and there was plenty of room for us all to sleep, play, relax, and get ready for the wedding and unwind afterward. Our hair stylist and makeup artist worked their magic on the balcony overlooking Volcan Mountain and the Julian-area valleys. Deer and other wildlife (think raccoons and turkeys) made their presence known, to the delight of young and old alike. On wedding day, we experienced none of the stress I'd anticipated, and our surroundings in the hours before had a lot to do with that. This was the perfect place for us, and we'd love to return. This was my first time renting a home away from home, and the owner, Paul, and this home were a delightful introduction to what I hope is not our only experience at this home and the many others available through this website.
