About the property

Classic California Lives In Temecula

Classic California lives on in Temecula at La Casa Contenta by offering a truly unique escape into unrivaled simplicity, luxury, warmth, and charm of California's Golden architectural era of the 1920's.

This Spanish Colonial Revival estate is located in the heart of the Wine Country (just 1 mile from Temecula's first winery) and minutes to Pechanga casino, Old Town Temecula and classic golf courses, with 5 acres with unparalleled views of the Palomar Mountains, and the Valle De Los Caballos (Valley of the Horses).

Indoors offers 4 bedrooms, 3 baths (one with an antique claw foot tub), elegant formal living room and darling kitchen with an original O'keefe & Merritt antique stove and formal dining room- you will find a peaceful and serene setting for long chats and great dinning.

This being southern California boasting one of the most temperature climates in the world, you will most likely find yourself spending most of your time here enjoying the delightful outdoor living and kitchen areas, huge pool and separate built -in spa.

Drive up the magnificent Italian Cypress lined private driveway and you'll immediately know why you came here, step through the door and feel immediately at home, and continue to the Italianesque grounds beyond and you'll know why you would want to stay for ever!

Are we in Temecula...or TUSCANY??

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contenta was perfect for our recent girls weekend. We comfortably slept 8 in the house. The owners/property managers did a great job showing us around and making sure we felt comfortable.

While the house is lovely and met all our needs, NOTHING compares to the backyard, the view, and the outdoor experience at this place. The view, the pool/jacuzzi, the outdoor eating areas (did I mention the VIEW?) all had us believing we were in Tuscany instead of Temecula. It was truly spectacular.

The house was also easy to find and really close (10 minute drive, max) to local wineries and grocery stores/shops. So while we felt like we were at a retreat, we weren't far from civilization (or from an Uber to take us there).

There were small things inside the house that were dated or showing their 'antique charm', but nothing that put a damper on our overall enjoyment.

Overall a fantastic find and we all want to go back! Thanks, John!

Perfect setting for our Bridal Bash! Plenty of space for us, inside and out. Excellent kitchen!

  • 4 of 5

The setting and spaces were lovely, like a movie set. Walking through the front door, our jaws dropped at the beauty inside and beyond to the Mt. Paloma view. French doors, antique furnishings and homey touches made our group feel pampered and relaxed. The outside patios and seating areas were lovely to look at and enjoy the views from.

The many bedrooms afforded our group of 7, plenty of privacy, yet the space was warm and welcoming.

My only negative comment would be that some of the furnishings were quite fragile, like movie props. The dining room chairs were antiques, but for a sit down meal, the only place indoors for our group to sit together. The upholstered chairs in that space needed new springs, as one would sink if sitting in the center of the chair. We made do - we perched! It was fine. Also a large mirror in the living room looked as if the chair beneath it was holding it up and the mirror was askew. We dared not straighten it.

Other than those few things, the family room area adjacent to the kitchen and kitchen table were PERFECT! We were there most of the time. The beautiful living room was gorgeous and comfortable, too!

The bed in the Master was a bit firm (bring your own pillow), but I believe everyone else slept fine.

The home was perfect for the ladies, men might find it a bit fussy and I would not recommend for families wih children. I would be afraid something would get broken.

This was my first time using any kind of rental home. I will do it again! Thanks to Home Away, our Bride-to-be and her friends and family had a memorable weekend!

Unbelievable view

  • 5 of 5

Had really high hopes for this house and was surprised to have them surpassed. House is beautiful and on the top of a hill. Situated on a quiet street with many wineries nearby. House feels special and comfortable at the same time. Loved it.

Slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home with breathtaking views! We were blown away by all that the backyard had to offer, so many quaint places to enjoy. Our entire family voted this the best house on our 10 day trip to California. The home decor was so inviting and the beds were very comfortable. The location is prime as well. We were a 5 minute drive from dozens of vineyards, what more could you ask for! John was so friendly and readily available. We also really appreciated the bottle of local Chardonnay and cheese and crackers that were left for us. This is a very special home and we were blessed to have stayed here. Until next time...
