About Kim Kelliher

John and Kim are long-time Temecula residents who love the Valley - especially wine country, where they spend much of their free time. They raised three boys in the Valley and now are empty-nesters. They travel frequently with friends and often choose to stay in vacation rentals instead of hotels.

Both pride themselves in providing exceptional hospitality. Grapeline Wine Tours, a company they founded in Temecula in 2002, has twice been named a Temecula Valley Business of the Year and was awarded the prestigious Hospitality Award by the Visit Temecula Valley organization. Grapeline has earned more five-star reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor than any other activity in the region.

Kim Kelliher purchased this house in 2015

Why Kim Kelliher chose Temecula

This property appealed to us in large part due to the extensive and beautiful landscaping. To reach the hill-top home, you enter through a grand gate, across a pillared bridge, and up a palm-lined hill-side drive. It feels like you've arrived some place very special. The layout of both the interior and exterior living spaces is great for socializing with friends or family.

What makes this house unique

We love taking in the views from Casa Turo, especially at sunset. Even though more than 40 wineries are a mere bike ride away, the secluded home on a quiet country road offers a peaceful retreat with an inviting outdoor living space.

Beautiful casa on a hill!!

  • 5 of 5

It is a secure ridge top location. The grounds are beautiful especially the outdoor space in the back. Fun area to grill, sit by the fire pit or just relax. The house was clean and extremely spacious. Plenty of room in the kitchen to cook a good meal. Central location to the wineries was perfect for tasting. Thanks..we will return.

Peaceful and beautiful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous home that easily fit our 10 guests. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was a perfect size for cooking for a large group and the living room sat all of us. The outdoor area in the back was perfect for soaking up the California sunshine. At night our family enjoyed the gas firepit. The house was secluded and very private but close to shopping and restaurants. Kim was great to work with. You will love this home away from home!

Wine country get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Gorgeous Hilltop home in the center of Temecula Wine country. Four couples stayed at the house and we invited a couple of friends to join us for tasty BBQ dinners - beautiful and comfortable environment. Great location for our wine weekend tours with the Grapeline. We look forward to visiting again in the future and would highly recommend to others!

Fantastic getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time celebrating my 40th birthday with friends. The house easily slept 10 adults. There was ample space in the living room and dining room for everyone to eat together and hang out. The outside space was awesome for entertaining with a cozy sunken gas fire pit area and a fantastic outdoor bar/grill area. We also used the wood fire pit and ping pong table. Everyone raves about the house. It was very clean and easy to find things. Beautiful and quiet location. Would easily come back again!
