Reviewer Comments:

Just had a great 2-day stay here and was very happy with the experience. I brought the big family here, with kids, grandparents, and even our dog, and everyone found something to like. The kids loved the loft and the movies and board games. The grandparents loved the well appointed kitchen and the grill and fire pit outside. And the dog loved the big fenced in yard. We had a problem with the heater, and the property manager came over right away to fix it, which was much appreciated as well. I was particularly interested in doing some star gazing, and the deck in the back yard proved to be the perfect location for that. Also, if you stay here, walk up the road a ways. There's a nice creak with a bridge over it and you can hear the sound of frogs at nighttime. Overall, we had a great time here.

Cozy Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We are recent residents to the San Diego area, but we had encountered Julian and thought it would be a great surprise to visiting family for Christmas. Although there was no Wifi, our teenagers survived. We knew about this and brought several games, movies and puzzles to do. There are also games, movies and puzzles provided. The large family table was great for the games and puzzles. The home was well stocked for preparing a festive feast, exceeding expectations. The front room's fireplace added a great ambiance to the weekend. There were also space heaters provided for the large rooms. The bedrooms were comfortable and my daughter loved the loft! There were a few blips that happen with older homes, both cosmetic and mechanical, but they did not impact our stay too much. We were able to convey messages to management about these problems successfully. We were able to drive into Julian on Christmas Eve, but since it was a snowy, rainy and windy day, it was a quick trip. We would stay again, it looks unassuming from the photos, but it is really nice. This was an excellent place to stay for the price.

Needs updating!

  • 1 of 5

Unfortunately, the property was not ready for us until 4 hours after check in time. The property is in need of updating and smelled like cigarette smoke. Some of the furniture was old and stained; the drapery in one of the rooms was plastic held up by metal clips. The dining room chairs were outside folding chairs. However, the owner, Victoria, was the nicest person and was apologetic and very sweet.

A decent weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house is spacious and clean. Enough room to accommodate our group consisting 5 adults and 3 kids. Back and front yards are pretty big for the kids to play. In our opinion, there are two minor drawback for this property. 1)The kitchen is not very well equipped. 2) There is no Wifi in the house which is good in a way that you have to get rid of your electronic devices and just enjoying your time with family and kids.

Cozy Getaaway

  • 5 of 5

Super nice property manager greeted us upon arrival. She was very welcoming to our group. The home was very accommodating to our group that included two children who loved the home. It was a very spacious property with great amenities minus cable/WiFi availability. The beds were quite comfortable. I would recommend a couple of more fans along with the cable and WiFi. But that is more due to the warm weather during our stay. If the master had a ceiling fan it would likely remove the need for a separate fan. The home was very clean upon our arrival. The Julian area was very beautiful during our visit and we are hoping to make a return trip in the fall.

Needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The house is nice but old. Doesn't seem like it has been kept up. The leaving room furniture is old. There is no cable, no Wifi, and the DVD player is old and does not work very well. The TV is also old. The fire place is beautiful but unfortunately, we went during the summer. It was hot and the house does not have AC. I think it is just a fan. There was plenty of space to sleep, so that was nice. The screens on the windows do not fit very well because a lot of flies were able to get in. Overall the house was OK, but I would not got back for the price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. Over the past year, the owner has made several improvements to the home and has plans to continue updating the amenities to provide a more comfortable guest experience. Our listing does state that there is no wifi or cable as our cabin is the perfect place to come and "get off the grid" with your family and friends. You can enjoy the beautiful scenery and wonders of downtown Julian as this home has an excellent location. Additionally, we do not advertise that there is AC in the property. For most seasons in Julian, AC is not neccessary. Thanks again for staying with us! The Turnkey VR Team
