Why J. Love, Manager chose Temecula Valley

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

average rating of 4.9 based on 30 reviews

Exactly how described...CHARMING!

  • 5 of 5

This truly charming cottage was exactly what we were looking for! It's just far enough from town and the wineries to give you a true county feeling yet close enough to get to our destinations in no time. It's private, secluded and peaceful. Home is fully equipped, clean and nicely decorated. The owner is super nice, accommodating and quick to respond. We look forward to staying again at this wonderful home!

extremely pleased

  • 5 of 5

during what could have been a stressful time for my siblings and i, this wonderful gem helped turn our time together into a lovely mini vacation. it’s in a beautiful country setting, yet close enough to Temecula so as not to feel stranded when a store, restaurant or entertainment is needed. the home is beautifully decorated as well as comfortable. it’s much larger than it would appear from first glance and thoughtfully laid out. will be recommending this home to others and more than likely will be back to stay here myself. i couldn’t be happier with my choice.

Gorgeous property!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was absolutely gorgeous. The decor inside was upscale and comfortable, and we had everything we needed -- coffee in the cupboard was an added bonus as we had forgotten to buy. We especially loved the outdoor seating area as we leisurely sipped our coffee on the weekend mornings. The cabin is huge inside and though there were only four of us the home could easily accommodate at least six people. The only disappointment was that the access code was not included in the entry instructions (the instructions said the property was unlocked) and because of spotty cell service (even though we have Verizon) we had trouble reaching our host, delaying our entry by a couple of hours. I'd recommend the hosts update the entry instructions accordingly. Somewhat of a compensating factor was that our hosts were more than generous in providing us a little extra check out time.

Owner's Response: We do have updated entry information, unfortunately the older one was accidently sent, which we have since removed the older one from any trace on any computer/iCloud, so this eve happens again. Again, our sincerest apologies on this, and yes, service stinks up here until the cell towers are placed soon up here.

Peace and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing environment, Villa de Luzis the place. The musical sound of frogs was awesome; had a visitor on the porch the first night. Each bedroom was beautifully decorated and the beds were very comfortable. A word of advice, arrive during daylight hours. It is very dark in the hills and the cottage is tucked in the back of the property. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and look forward to visiting again. Cheers!

Wonderful Home Away From Home For The Holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Villa over the Holidays for a large family Christmas gathering and loved the cottage from the moment we set foot inside. There were ample, comfortable, and cozy accommodations for family members (5 in total.) The home is tastefully furnished and equipped and gives the "everything I need is here" feeling for the stay. Just few minutes drive into the foothills, and the traffic and busy hustle of the Temecula area seems to be far away. Very scenic and picturesque drive from the valley to the home as well. We would definitely consider staying here again should we have a future home-away-from-home lodging need in the future in the Temecula area.

Excellent Location To Have A Temecula Adventure!!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended location if you are looking to do SoCal wine country. We had two couples stay in the house and everyone had a great time.

The place is just far enough from the main area of Temecula to really feel like you are getting away from it all, but still close enough to be a short drive (or uber, which we did all weekend) to the wineries and Pachanga. As other reviews mentioned their isn't much cell reception but the residence has excellent wireless internet and a cell hot spot if you are on Verizon. None of our Uber drivers had any issue finding the place, it cost us roughly $20 to get from the house to our first winery and about the same to get to Pachanga.

We will definitely be coming back next year!!
