Christa and her husband Dan own and operate a residential construction company in the Temecula Valley. Dan designed and built this home himself and loves to build custom homes. They have two small children together and love living in Temecula.
Christa Pilkington purchased this house in 2005
This home is outside the city without being cut off from anything. The 5 acre property is private and peaceful, however anything you need is close by. The wineries are all just minutes away, and a short drive into the center of town brings you to everything else, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, gas stations. We love the seclusion that this property offered without having to give up the convenience of living in the city.
The home has an amazing view of the sunset. It is so peaceful sitting out on the patio in the mornings listening to the neighbor's horses and watching the hot air balloons floating in the sky while having your coffee. It also offers guests the option of having 2 separate areas for larger groups who want to vacation together but still want the option of retreating to their private space or for groups who are unsure of how many people they will have accompanying them since the second floor can be added on at any time if more people decide to join the travelers.
Christa was very easy to work with during the booking process and was responsive once we arrived at the home. Although we were not able to go wine tasting, this would have been the perfect location. The house is right in the middle of winery row. The beds were super plush and comfortable. It is very dog friendly and includes a completely private fully fenced backyard. We only rented the bottom half of the home which was actually very spacious. The two bedrooms are at opposite ends of the house so it would be a nice rental to share especially for 2 couples. We did not have a chance to enjoy the front yard fire pit....maybe next time. One thing I had not considered was the street noise which is totally understandable because, as I mentioned, it is right on the main road with all of the wineries!
There were five of us and the house was plenty of room and was well stocked. Comfortable beds and enough space to accommodate us all in one room for meals and movies. The owners were friendly and easy to work with. Multiple cups of coffee on the balcony in the morning. And multiple glasses of wine around the fire in the evening.
Thanks to Christa letting us to stay in this spacious and well condition vacation home! I was staying with my family & wedding parties total around 10 people for our wedding and we all sleep well and had good time! It has two floors so good for two families too! Very isolated to other place yet still not too far from the winery. Definitely recommend if you are going to stay couple days in Temecula!!
A wonderful property to enjoy the wine country. We will definitely return and refer our friends and family to Dan & Christa's lovely home. Christa is a great communicator and does her best in providing details that will make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Many thanks for making your property available for a vacation rental.
Christa was a wonderful host and the home was perfect for the weekend. Great kitchen for cooking and all of the amenities were wonderful. I will definitely come back here on my next trip to Temecula!
The owner Christa was very friendly, timely and helpful. The location is pretty close to all the local vineyards. We had rented both units and they were very modern, clean and beautiful! The kitchen also has everything you need. There are washers and dryers on both floors.
My ONLY complaint: Heads up to out-of-towners. We are from Massachusetts. In that area of California, and the more I read, I see that it is all over CA, be aware of black widow spiders. There is a wonderful out door patio with a gas fireplace that we enjoyed very much (every night)! However, around the perimeter there is a post and rail fence where you may encounter the spiders. We did (none in the house). We notified Christa and she was extremely apologetic and called her "bug person." Not her fault... I should have read about the local wildlife. It is what it is and after reading about the area, it doesn't matter where you go you will find them hiding out in dark crevasses...... :)
Overall we would definitely come back! Thanks for the wonderful place at a fraction of what it would cost to stay at the local hotels! :)
