About owner/property manager

I am semi-retired and do accounting and bookkeeping services from my home. I am originally from back east (Ohio) and have lived in Colorado since 1972. I am almost a native!! I enjoy getting together with friends, gardening, animals of any kind and always.....a good glass of wine. I look forward to meeting many new people and sharing this beautiful Colorado weather with them!!

owner/property manager purchased this apartment in 1972

Why owner/property manager chose Castle Rock

This is an historic home built in 1922 as the new home/office for Castle Rocks new dentist in town. I love older homes and neighborhoods and have lived here for the past 44 years! You will find lots of history in our little town.

Wonderful place for a Castle Rock visit

  • 5 of 5

This little gem is a basement apartment, but has a sliding glass door as the entrance so it doesn't scream basement on the inside. Perfect for two people. Lovely that the owner accepts dogs. Lots of little extras like scones, juice, coffee, milk, and well equipped in the kitchen.

Nice very short walk to Castle Rock, and your own parking off the street. We loved it.

Wonderful stay in Castle Rock

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and enjoyed exploring Castle Rock. Julie's place was very comfortable and perfect for us. The local restaurants were great - food was delicious and most within walking distance. Access to trails were within a few blocks and the surrounding neighborhood quiet, walkable and fun to explore. Enjoyed sitting on the patio, watching the racoons, rabbits (lots of rabbits!), squirrels and birds and hearing the trains pass by!

Cozy, comfy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just spent two weeks in Castle Rock and felt warm, safe, and very comfortable in this darling apartment. My hostess was friendly and very helpful with directions, the occasional Netflix glitch, as well as taking care of snow removal on the patio steps. We had a lovely Christmas visit !

The apartment was really cute and the decor was perfect for the mountains however there was never mention of a extremely loud railway located directly across the street that passed thru about every 5 hours!!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the train was an irritant to this guest. I don't make a mention of it as most of my quests have not found it to be a problem. I wish that I could control the trains but I cannot. I will mention that Ms Poole had promised me by email that she would be bringing crates for her two dogs that she was traveling with. I was very disappointed that she did not bring crates and then the dogs were left alone in my apartment for long periods of time. I would not host this quest in the future.

Lovely place, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Julie is a friendly, thoughtful, gracious host, and her garden-level apartment is very pretty and comfortable! We were so glad we chose to stay in this charming place rather than a hotel. Loved the easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants, and the quick drive to I-25. Loved having meals and drinks on the private garden patio! Very comfy bed and a great shower. Even though it's a pet-friendly place, there was no pet smell, and everything was extremely clean. We were there on a hot weekend, and though there's no AC, the apartment always stayed cool and comfortable. We highly recommend Julie's lovely place!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the glowing review!! I do try hard to make everything as perfect as possible and it is very rewarding to know I did good! You and Howard were delightful guests! The apartment looked like you had cleaned up ahead of me! I thank you for your courtesy and lovely review! I do hope to see you if you get back to Colorado!! I will join you on the patio with a glass of wine!! Thank you again! Julie

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apartment for three weeks. It was the perfect little place for myself and my small dog. I enjoyed the outdoor space where many squirrels and birds would come eat peanuts from my hand. Julie was very accommodating and handled anything I needed. The apartment is within walking distance of restaurants, coffee shops and some interesting little clothing and antique shops.
