Located in the tiny town of Rainbow, this secluded one bedroom apartment with full bath and kitchen is surrounded by beautiful coral and pine trees. A 15 minute drive will take you to Old Town Temecula for shopping and dining, world famous local wineries or the Pala and Pechanga casinos. If you're in a leisurely mood you can swim in the pool, soak in the jacuzzi, or sip wine in front of the chimenea while listening to the waterfall. There is even an on site treatment room where you can relax while you receive professional beauty treatments from a licensed aesthetician!
Greg and I (Michelle) have both lived in Southern California since grade school. We attended the same high school but didn't meet until our late 20's. We married in 1990 and have 4 sons, 2 married and 3 grandchildren. We have 3 friendly, very well behaved dogs which you may see walking the 2 1/2 acre property with Greg in the mornings and evenings. We also have a very aloof cat and 2 turtles. We are very friendly people but not intrusive. I love to bake which will be evident when you try the cookies I leave in your room!
Michelle LaLonde purchased this apartment in 1995
When we began looking for a home to raise our children in, we wanted an area away from housing tracts and shopping centers, but not too remote. We have both lived in San Diego County since grade school and had never heard of Rainbow before! When we first looked at the house it was definitely in need of love and attention, something we have a lot of to give! Over the last 20 years, we (mostly Greg) have done a lot of work fixing up the house and property until it has become what it is now, our oasis of peace in a very hectic world.
Rainbow, an unincorporated town in San Diego County, is secluded enough to enjoy tranquil days of peace and quiet, and central enough to access almost as many adventures as you'd like to have. Old Town Temecula with its numerous antique and unique shops, the famous Temecula wineries, and both the Pala and Pachanga Casinos are between 15 and 20 minutes away. The beach, San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Parks are roughly an hours drive. You can play all day and relax in the evening.
This was our second time staying at the Coral Tree house. Michelle and Grey have done a fantastic job of creating one of the best VRBO's that we have ever stated in. Always our first choice when we're in the San Diego.
This is a hidden gem in a great location, Michelle and Greg did and excelente job making us feel like home, always doing their best to offer us a great experience, the place is very well taken care of and the breakfast is totally amazing! I hope to be back soon.
Michelle & Gregg's "Coral tree house" is great! It was even better than the pictures & description shown. Everything was provided for w/ a very comfortable bed, quiet room & exactly what we needed to relax. Michelle provided fantastic breakfasts that were delicious! The jacuzzi & lights were great @ night for relaxing along w/ the chiminea fire pit! Very close to wineries & old town Temecula while avoiding Tourist traps!
We loved staying here. One of my new favorites and will become a regular at this property. Michelle went above and beyond. She made us an incredible breakfast both mornings we were there. She even wrote a welcome sign in chalk in front of the door. We loved using the jacuzzi at night. Everything was perfect.
My husband and I had a wedding to attend in one of the wineries in Temecula. We spent so much time trying to find a good hotel until we decided to give vacation rentals a chance.
COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!
Michelle's husband showed us around while she was with a client. We talked forever and he gave us some awesome recommendations.
Location seems far from the wineries and old town Temecula but it is just 15 minutes away. Uber cost us $10. Worth it!! Their land is absolutely beautiful, quiet and you can actually see the stars at night! A little piece of heaven 40 minutes away from San Diego.
Michelle cooked us breakfast every morning! Trust me: you will enjoy every bite of it! We regretted ourselves for cancelling one of the breakfasts because every morning was a surprise. Nothing better than starting your day with good food and a cup of coffee by the pool! Their doggies occasionally stopped by to say Hi too! I'm sorry, but I can't picture a better morning than that!
The house has everything you need: full kitchen, a nice living room with cable tv, plenty of storage, AC and heater, hair dryer for the ladies (I was going to a wedding and forgot mine! :D).
We can't wait to go back! It's hard to find good people who really enjoy getting to know a "weird person" in their house.
We both work in the hospitality industry and I can say that it is really hard to find good people who provide excellent customer service. You are one of a kind.
Thanks for everything! See you soon!
We arrived to a lovely surprise of sidewalk art welcoming us to Coral Tree House and found delicious homemade cookies on the kitchen counter. Both Greg and Michelle go out of their way to make you feel right at home. The guest house is absolutely spotless and has everything you could possible want, comfortable living room with flat screen tv, well stocked kitchen, plenty of closet and storage in the bedroom plus all the amenities in the bath area, even bathrobes. We had been on the road for several weeks and this little oasis was the perfect spot to unwind for a few days. Michelle gave both my husband and I relaxing facials the day we arrived. Absolutely wonderful! Greg has outdone himself with the light show, it’s a must see! He even had a fire going in the chiminea for our enjoyment. Michelle is a master chef, breakfasts .were not only delicious but the presentation was amazing. The weather was wonderful so breakfast was served poolside each morning. The property is extremely convenient to the wineries in Temecula and close to several golf courses (Temecula Creek Inn and Pechanga Casino are just a couple of them). Our family lives nearby so we will definitely be back! Thanks Greg and Michelle for being such wonderful hosts!
