Our family have spent the last couple of years traveling to a warm destination to break up the winter months. We are 11 in total so look for a home that is roomy enough to accommodate my husband, myself, our 4 sons and their families comfortably and affordably. We look for locations that have a lot to do in close proximity. We found this at the Temecula Wine Country Estate #1. We were VERY pleased – it had everything we were looking for!! The description of the home on the website was very accurate. The bedrooms are very roomy with very comfortable beds in the room as well as playpens and inflatable mattresses to easily accomodate everyone. We have two 3 year olds and a 2 year old in our group and had no problems accommodating their varied nap times as the home is quite sound proof room to room. The large kitchen/family room had something for everyone- and we had access to it all. The kitchen is fully stocked with any thing you could possibly need to prepare a family meal – so nice not to have to go out to eat with such a large group. The outdoor area has spectacular views, is a huge area that is private and again had something for everyone. We barbecued, picked fresh oranges, swam, sat in the hot tub and even sat out at night in front of the fireplace watching a movie on the outdoor television. There is a very secure child-proof fence around the pool and hot tub so the kids could go out and play safely.
As a runner I am looking for a safe place to run- it was right outside the gate of the estate. There is a great playground within walking distance. We did a couple of day trips to San Diego – easy to access the interstate highway and get to where we needed to be; Temecula has everything we could possibly need locally for stores. As well as numerous wineries close by - 7 minutes away at the South Coast Winery there is a wonderful spa.
Our hosts couldn’t have been better to us – meeting us the minute we arrived and being accessible by phone with any of our needs both before arriving and during our stay. We really felt like we were at home and will DEFINITELY recommend this place to others!
