Overview

About the property

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!

About Michelle LaLonde

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

Why Michelle LaLonde chose San Diego County

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Delightful place and warm hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late after fighting traffic from LA and found a warm welcome from Michelle and Gregg. The tiny house (where I stayed) is cozy and ultra comfortable. The apartment (where my friends stayed) is also great. The hot tub in the morning was a welcome treat. Michelle is a great cook and breakfast was fresh, filling and perfectly served. Lots of nice touches - like homebaked cookies on arrival. Michele and Gregg see that you have what you need without ever being intrusive. We enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer. Gregg was planning to build more tiny houses - sounds like a great idea!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Absolutely incredible

  • 5 of 5

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.
