Great place for a large group or family
Beautiful 360 views. House was as advertised. Host was great.
The house was amazing beautiful private setting. Slightly farther outside of town than expected but overall excellent experience.
Thank you for being such a wonderful guests Sue. I loved having you as our guests.
Amazing house with incredible views!
Wow, this house is beautiful! It's spacious and well-kept with an incredible kitchen and lots of space for everyone to spread out. Big bedrooms, lots of bathrooms, and the house was well stocked with everything we needed. The view from the front and back yards is absolutely stunning. Incredible sunsets looking over the hills and valley. Great location off the De Portola Wine Trail - tons of wineries within 20 mins. Vlada was an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed. There were 11 of us and we all felt very comfortable. My only regret is the weather wasn't better (we had pouring rain and sleet for 2 of the 3 days) so we could have spent more time enjoying the beautiful outdoors!
You are sweet Dianne, thank you for such a kind words. I LOVED having you and your friends as our guest...Take care and all the best, Vlada :)
The perfect winter retreat space
I just hosted a meditation retreat and Vlada’s home was a hit. We held the meditation circle and yoga class in the vineyard and everyone was inspired by the expansive views. If you’re looking for a retreat space with a good vibe you’ll be quite happy here.
Great location and amazing views
Our stay at Vlada's property exceeded our expectations. The view, the property, the cleanliness all exceptional. We were a part of a wedding party and needed somewhere close by to come home to and get ready at as well as have enough rooms to all have our own space. The house was clean upon arrival and easy to get to from De Portola. We had good cell service and WIFI which is super important when in Temecula as the service in the area is pretty weak. The outdoor dining space and vineyard views were beautiful, If we had more time to spend on the property we would love to have use the outdoor space. This property made for a great trip and was so convenient for us in the wedding party. Thank you Vlada! :)
Allie, you and your party were the best guest ever!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you...:)
Spectacular setting for a rehearsal dinner
We chose this place because of the beautiful grounds overlooking the vineyards. We hosted our son's rehearsal dinner outside, under the lights and it was just perfect. We had family stay with us that had come from back east and enjoyed all being able to be under one roof. We found everything comfortable and clean. Vlada met us when we arrived and was delightful. She could not have been more helpful and accommodating.
I had read a lot of the reviews and was a little nervous when the wedding party ended up in the house after the 10:00. I kept an eye on my phone in case Vlada asked us to wrap it up. She never texted and I think everyone was gone by 11:30. One word of caution, there are a few level changes and we had several falls on to the tile floor. No one was hurt thankfully. We will definitely be back for a relaxing wine tasting trip with our friends.
Thank you Vlada for a truly amazing stay!
