There is an apartment size refrigerator in the dining room that is solely for guest use. If you feel you will need more refrigerator space, it can be arranged. All water flowing into the house is well water. It has been filtered and tested. It is safe to drink. It contains the minerals iron & manganese so it is a slightly brown which you may notice in the toilets or if you draw a bath. There is reverse osmosis filtered water at the sink in the kitchen which you are welcome to use and fill up water bottles. Note: Hot water takes a while to get hot, but it does get hot!
Please feel welcome to enjoy the views and fresh mountain air on the spacious front and back wrap around porches. Whether you are having morning beverages or an evening drink kickback and relax at the outdoor coffee table, high seated chairs or lounge chairs.
Note: My husband and I have an attached apartment at the back of the house and an office; both have separate entrances which we use when we have guests. We respect and value guest privacy, we will not be walking through the house when we have guests. Often we take short vacations when we rent out Green Owl Home in which case I will be available to answer any questions that you have during your stay by text or cell phone.

I am often present in my private apartment, working in my art studio, in the gardens or in the office. I am happy to answer questions, give directions and recommend local restaurants and activities. Sometimes I may not be home, in which case, I will be available via texting and cell phone.
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 :) 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 ;)
Recycle, trash & compost bins are located in the kitchen. Extra bags for the bins are in the plastic rainbow colored drawers to the left of the bins.
At the end of your visit please wash your dirty dishes, the dishwasher is available for easy clean up.
Green Owl is on a septic waste disposal system; PLEASE do not put ANYTHING other than toilet paper (and the obvious) into the toilets.
No candles or smoking anywhere on Green Owl property.
Due to allergies Green Owl is a FRAGRANCE FREE household (please no perfumed products, colognes & hairsprays)
SHOES inside the house ... Wearing shoes on the hardwood floors is fine, if you go on carpeted areas please remove your shoes, this is especially important on muddy days, thank you! Laundry facilities are available.
SAFETY: Please always stay on clearly marked paths on Green Owl property and please wear closed toe shoes (red ants can be found on the property). There is also poison oak on the property. I have done my best to keep it cleared from pathways but it sneaks in, always remember “leaves of three, let it be!” Also there is lots of uneven ground and unfortunately gopher and ground squirrel holes, so watch your step. During warm weather look out for rattlesnakes (as you would on any hiking trails in Southern California!) No smoking anywhere on the property due to high forest fire hazard.
EXTRA PERSON POLICY: Babies and toddlers up to age 2 yrs & 12 months are free; all others count as an extra person. Please let me know if you are having an extra guest(s) join you.
