About Kim Johns

Owners built the home when they married and combined families. They raised four children in the home and now are empty nesters. They enjoy the city life and returning 'home' to their relaxing vacation villa.

Kim Johns purchased this estate in 1994

Why Kim Johns chose Temecula

Our Temecula Estate was built as our home to enjoy and raise our family. The area is beautiful, and serene with mountain and valley views. The wineries are close by, Old Town is charming and the nights are peaceful.

What makes this estate unique

This home provides beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the mountains. Early morning birds awaken you with hot air balloons flying overhead. Afternoons are perfect to enjoy the infinity edge pool, and a family barbeque in the outdoor kitchen. As the sun sets, you can enjoy sitting in the pool house and enjoy shade, or sit under the decking to watch the sun set. In addition, the property is located within easy driving distance of all major amusement parks in Southern California allowing for easy day trips. The beach and the mountains are just an hour drive away.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
We rented three VRBOs in Temecula for wedding guests. This home housed from 8 to 11 people over an 8 day span. The interior of this home is very nice with two exceptions: The Jennaire stove top grill did not have a proper grease catcher and grease went all over the cabinet under the stove. We could not use it after the first use. We reported this but recieved no offer to correct the problem. We also tried to use the jetted tub in the Master BR but the hot water faucet was defective. It barely trickled on full open taking 30 minutes to fill the tub and then wouldn't shut off until another 30 minutes went by. We didn't use it again after that. Also reported but received no further corrective actions or accommodation.

As reported as others, the exterior of the building and the landscaping are well below par. I understand the water issues but trimming shrubs, pulling weeds and clearing away junk would go a long way to improving the appearance of the property. The wood trim on the building is rotted and peeling in many areas. Basic maintenance neglected.

Finally, the AC was a big issue. It is controlled remotely by the owners by computer. It was HOT while we were there and unseasonably humid with actual heavy rain on three of the days we were there. We were told that the thermostats are set at 77 which would normally be tolerable but when you're dressing for a formal wedding this was uncomfortable. Since the thermostats showed readings of 78-81 routinely, we asked them to reset down to 72. They said they would go to 74 but the thermostats regularly showed 77-79. Not cool!

Outside cleanliness, and maintenance are needed badly. It would not take much to bring this property up to the standards expected.
The other two VRBO homes we rented from different owners were cool and comfortable with spotless inside/outside decor.

Owner's Response: The actual person who rented our home for their wedding weekend, visited our home personally with his bride to look at the property for its appropriateness to their needs. They spent quite a bit of time looking over the entire property, including the front and back yards, the bedrooms, and bathrooms. The writer of this review was a guest at the home. The actual renter, did not ever contact us regarding his discontent of issues. The writer of this review contacted us several times during the stay to report his discontent. We responded to each of his requests and issues, including sending our housekeeper out to address his needs when he wanted an extra bed brought in for a guest. After his departure, I (owner) personally inspected the issues he presented us with as no one else has contacted us with these issues. The following was found: the kitchen JennAir stove had the appropriate receptacle yet was moved to the incorrect burner, the spa tub has a safety valve to restrict the hot water to enter the tub (this is working as per safety feature upon inspection) and the tub is a two person tub which takes a very long time to fill, the spa tub also has a hygiene feature to purge the used, unclean the water with fresh water, thus the line drains (upon personal inspection the water drained for 60 seconds max), the air conditioner was turned down to the guest request to 74 degrees (this was monitored via remote operation per guest request). During the visit, we responded to each of his conditions, concerns, and comments. And upon his departure, we thoroughly inspected the home regarding his reports, and there were no problems present. All items are completely operational as expected.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed a 10 day family vacation here in July. There were 5 adults and 5 children age 6-13. We found the house and backyard to be big and pleasant and we enjoyed our experience. We had a couple of minor issues, but found the owners to be concerned and responsive. The description and photos are accurate. The view from the backyard is especially enjoyable. The pool is attractive, just a bit smaller than we would have liked with 5 kids, but they enjoyed it. The pool and patio areas are nice, with lots of space. The other parts of the yard (front, sides) are minimally maintained. The location was great for us and we had a good combination of relaxing at the house/pool and getting out to various activities. If we stay in the area in the future, we will check into staying here again.

Girl's Weekend

Girl's Weekend
  • 3 of 5
Overall the home was beautiful and spacious, however the decor was not to my liking. The outside landscaping around the property had not been maintained properly (e.g. trash behind the the outdoor kitchen that had been sitting for a while; fountain in the driveway had green water; the Gazebo and bridge was in poor shape and dead shrubbery around the perimeter of the property). There was a bee hive above the entrance of the property and although a bee keeper was called out, they left dead bees on the porch and surrounding area which made it impossible for us to enter and exit out of the front door. I know TVs are not used often during a vacation, however it would have been nice to have one in the bedrooms. There was only one TV in the entire house, but it was in the family room.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you choosing our Temecula Wine Country home. Our home was professionally decorated on the lower level with custom furnishings and décor that reflects a Southern charm. Our guests enjoy the outside amenities and spaciousness for their family gatherings, ie. pool house with dining and seating options, outdoor kitchen, infinity edge pool, and seating for all. The partial acreage behind the pool house is used to store maintenance and other items. In compliance with the local water restrictions and in consideration of the water crisis in California, we have turned off our water fountain and the front pond in the vineyard. The perimeter of our property is planted with low maintenance shrubbery while the front yard is our personal vineyard. With vines, bees are a natural occurrence. We were unaware that the beekeeper left residual bees after their visit; otherwise we would have had someone return to remediate. It is our goal to offer a spacious, enjoyable, and affordable home for families, and friends to gather together to make special memories. Thank you for choosing our home!

great views- large house

  • 5 of 5
We rented the house for a 3-day holiday get away/staycation traveling from San Diego. The house was great for many reasons:
1. location to the wineries (yet not far off the highway)
2. views from the pool area
3. gorgeous infinity pool
4. plenty of space/rooms and layout of house was wonderful for a large group
5. excellent features- house even provided shampoo, conditioner, etc. (most rentals do not)
6. free internet
7. very large kitchen- easy for everyone to help cook together
Overall, fantastic time in Temecula and outstanding views from the pool area.

Great experience!!

Great Golf week

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year in a row that we have stayed at this house. It works out great for 8 guys on a golf outing (each getting his own bed, with one airbed brought along) and is a perfect home base for relaxing in the morning, watching the sun rise and the balloons going by. After our golf rounds the local wineries are very close to the house and made for an enjoyable afternoon. The kitchen is well stocked and made for a few great home cooked meals. The evenings were spent relaxing on the nice patio with the infinity pool looking out over the valley. The house is well maintained and plenty of space for everyone . Would recommend this house for anyone and we will definitely be back.

We spent a long weekend in Temecula for my son's wedding. Twelve of our family members stayed here and had a wonderful time. When we first arrived, one of our guests saw that one of the toilet seats was broken. I called Stephanie and she was there in no time with new seat. Property accommodated 12 very easily, and kitchen was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Hot tub was great with beautiful views. I would definitely recommend this property. Owners and Stephanie very helpful.
