Perfect Place for a Visit to Wine Country

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay here while attending the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival this June. The house was perfectly located for access to Lake Skinner Recreation Area for the festival, and also close to all of our favorite wineries in Temecula. While we didn't get to enjoy the backyard during our short and busy stay, it looks like a great space to relax with friends or family.

The home was beautiful and very spacious.

  • 5 of 5

I do believe we found our home away from home. From the moment we walked in, we felt right at home. We will definitely be back before the summer is over. The check in, check out process was simple and there was always communication between the owner and I. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Perfect spot for our crew, and such nice people

  • 5 of 5

This is probably our tenth VRBO in the last few years, and it was a star!!!! The patio is as cool and comfortable as it looks, the house spotlessly clean and decorated simply but imaginatively. The kitchen was better equipped than any of our previous spots - even had a crockpot and an Instapot! I discovered when I got home that I had lost my hearing aid, and the cleaning crew had already found it! A sign of a thorough cleaning, and Alma was so sweet to send it back to me quickly. Great value, and a perfect location for taking a hot air balloon ride through California Dreamin. Thank you, hosts, for an excellent stay!!!!

Lovely large place - wonderful kitchen and patio

  • 4 of 5

My friends and I are looking forward to a return visit when we can spend more time enjoying the huge kitchen and patio! Great for large groups. I thought the location was great - just a quick 10 minute drive to the bustle of the wineries. Very quiet and peaceful. Thanks also for the coffee setup!

Note for owners - you may want to check the shower on the west side, I couldn't get any hot water. Also maybe look at adding some WD40 to the patio screen door slider.

Very clean and amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 6 came for a 1 night getaway to wine country for a birthday party. Alma was very accommodating and always replied to every question we had in a timely manner. The property was great! Super clean and organized and had all the amenities we needed. Close enough to wine country in a quiet and safe little town. Will definitely be back and will book this property for sure.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

My party had a fantastic time. The home had everything we needed and more. We were able to have a BBQ on the huge patio, and could enjoy coffee at the big kitchen table in the morning. Alma was also incredibly responsive and facilitating. She answered my messages immediately and was very sweet and easy to work with. I highly recommend this home!
