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 Rainbow

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.

One of our Favorites!

  • 5 of 5

Sitting at home, 30 degrees and another six inches of snow, I can’t help but reminisce about the wonderful weekend we spend at the Coral Tree House. Michelle and Greg are exceptional hosts and have worked very hard to make this property the vacation stay of your dreams. They have a location that is close to everything Temecula has to offer and secluded enough to ensure a great night’s sleep. We loved our stay and won’t spoil the surprise but you have to spend some time pool side after dark. Thanks again for a warm and wonderful stay!!!

P.S. The breakfast are second to none and I not even a big avacado fan ;)

Tranquil ✨yet close enough to all the action✨

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Michelle and Greg made us feel at home with the welcome sign at our front steps. Very comfortable and cozy accommodations like having your own little condo. Michelle goes above the extra mile than any home away we’ve ever experienced with her yummy breakfast and well appointed comforts in the condo. What made it extra special was treating myself to a facial at her spa on one of our days here and that is something you should not miss! I love her liquid collagen products that you drink.✨

We would definitely come back again!

Great friendly and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a relaxing, friendly place to stay while sipping wine this is the place. Michelle and her husband could not have been more welcoming. The property is set up for relaxing evenings and convenient to all the surrounding activities.

We really enjoyed our stay there and the breakfasts that Michelle "whipped up" were fantastic.

Love Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle was a kind and warm host. The location is so peaceful and relaxing. Compared to the hotels in Temecula, this location is close in distance and offers a completely different relaxation experience. Having a kitchen and living room is an added bonus to such a great get-away location.

Michelle and Greg were amazing hosts. We were so delightfully surprised at the beautiful property and at night the sparkly lights lit up the trees --breathtaking!

We enjoyed staying in the tiny house, playing in the pool with Toby, and soaking in the hot tub under the starry sky! We can't imagine staying anywhere else when we visit Temecula again in the future!
