About Sharilyn Parr

We enjoy coming to Volcan View House whenever we can get away, and we also enjoy sharing it with our guests when we are not there. We have many repeat visitors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a comfortable and relaxing day/night. Everything was a lot more than we expected. Thank you so much for opening your house. We'd love to return for a longer stay! The view from the house was spectacular! We sat out in the patio until late into the night and enjoyed the quietness of the mountains, and in the morning we enjoyed the spread of breakfast with the fresh air. We couldn't ask anything more.

Cozy house in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we've rented this house for two to three days while we attend a church convention. It's a comfortable, clean place that is quiet and a restful place to return to in the evening. The owners have the place set up for your convenience. For example, there's not only shampoo and conditioner (and soap) in every bathroom but also body lotion. The kitchen has all the things you'd need like sugar, salt etc. There even was a box of red tea in the cupboards, which we nearly finished! There's ample room for your stuff and the beds are very comfortable. The living room and wrap-around deck has fantastic views of the mountains. We love coming here every year and I just have to hope it doesn't get rented the weekend we come!

unforgetable weekend

  • 5 of 5

our first impresion was the extremely clean this place was

really gave us a trustfully stay for kids and adults, the kitchen very well equiped with all we needed ( we coudnt find a apron wear ) but not affect our new york steaks and all we cooked

I spend arround 30 minutes to find out how telescope works,but finaly with patience I find all the beautifull stars and a very good moon of cheese

all bedrooms are streamly confortable, I took a picture to the matress tag ,in order to buy one for my bedroom, the kids were very happy with all the toys provided and all videos classics and for kids as well

the downstair bedroom was adorable

a lot of towells , blankets, linens,

beatifull view from many angles, the living room windows give a big chance to see the montains and the hills

the inside house has a very easy central heater control as well the wash and dryer machines dont have to brake your head reading a manual

well I can't tell you with words how relaxing and pacefully my family and I was , you have to come and see by yourself , we will return in the first chance we have

We did not text or call to Sharilyn becouse everythig was perfect

but now I want to thank you for taking care with all well maintained ammenities, just to provide us a very wonderfull stay

I really apreciate your kindness

Great Experience at Volcan View House!

  • 5 of 5

So I didn't check in until late Friday 01/20/17 but three of my friends were already there. My friend had mentioned that it was a very nice place. Finally, when my two friends and I arrived, we came in and we agreed that the place "homely" after checking the whole place out! The Volcan House was modern inside and out with a touch of old-school furniture.

Volcan View House had the basic necessities for cooking and cleaning, it had a laundry area, and the house had a TON of board games! It made me nostalgic just playing old board games. The Balcony offered a great view and a place to grab some fresh air.

Downtown Julian wasn't too far from the house which was very convenient.

On a side note my friends and I did think it was a little creepy at night as the living room lacked blinds/ curtains. We were just paranoid that someone could be watching us, haha.

Overall, a wonderful home with no problems during our stay. Sharilyn is a great person, very efficient, and kind, so check her place out!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review, and I'm glad you enjoyed the house. For the info of readers, the house does have curtains/drapes on all the bedroom and bathroom windows. The living room does not have drapes. (We like to see out to the great views!) In six years of running Volcan View House, this is the first comment we've had about this, but everyone is different! Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review, which we always appreciate. Sharilyn

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at Volcan View house during Thanksgiving 2016. The house was perfect! Extremely clean and fully stocked with all items needed. Beds were comfortable and the house was roomy. We all had a great time and enjoyed the views from the balcony. Highly recommend Volcan View House!
