a little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Villa De Luz after a weekend of relaxation and wine tasting. There were 5 of us (3 generations) to celebrate my 70th birthday. I could not have been more pleased! The property exceeded my expectations. It was so lovely to sit outside in the AM to sip coffee and enjoy the views. The sleeping accommodations met all of our needs. The kitchen was well stocked ( a nice touch having the Britta in the fridge!). Thank you Jeanette for a fabulous weekend!

Perfect location for the event we were in the area for.

  • 4 of 5

Having an infant with us, it was a little unsettling to be so “secluded” with spotty cell service. Otherwise, we were happy with the accommodations.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. The spotty cell service is relieved by setting your phone through the wi-fi, which calls/texts can be made and received perfectly then, Directions for doing this were in the Blue Book in the home. We also provide a landline just in case there are issues with the cell phones for that reason.

Beautiful spacious home tucked away in wine country

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this charming wine country cottage. It was beautiful, quiet, charming and the perfect place to stay for our friend's wedding weekend. Everything was well laid out and J.Love thought of everything from soap to towels, etc. It is also in a very convenient location not far from town but far it still felt like we were able to have a country escape. We would definitely love to stay here again next time we are in town.

Perfect place for a family gatheribg

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting and very comfortable accommodations. Everything was perfect for our family of five adults and one infant. Only minor criticisms. Wish there was cable tv so we could have watched the USC -WSU football game here instead of having to drive to town to watch it. Internet signal not very strong but at least it worked.

Great place for my son's wedding weekend!

  • 5 of 5

It was my son's wedding weekend and the home was a short drive from both the rehearsal in Temecula and the wedding venue at Circle Oak Ranch which was perfect! The house was very comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a really hot weekend but the A/C worked like a charm! We were cool and comfy! Unfortunately some ants wanted to come in from the heat as well and brought a lot with them, but thank goodness it wasn't until the morning of our departure. Can't blame them, that's what they do and Janine was quick to respond. I will definitely look to stay here again if needed!

Why J. Love, Manager chose Temecula

The De Luz Area is known for it's beauty, serenity and atmosphere. The serenity and privacy of this beautiful property and area brought us here, and we love sharing the natural beauty of this wonderful area. We love the area, as it is close enough to all of Temecula & Murrieta's wonderful amenities. Fallbrook is just a beautiful drive through De Luz, and offers a very quaint small town atmosphere with some great restaurants. We have worked hard (and continue to do so) at making this property not only a profitable Avocado & Citrus Grove, but a place of serenity where people can come and relax and enjoy the birds singing, listening to the breeze rustle the leaves, and even hear the coyotes sing in the distance.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet Country Living & a very short drive from Old Town Temecula, The Local Microbreweries, The Temecula Wine Country, Pechanga, Shopping, Leave your stress behind....Come Stay at Villa de Luz
