About Christa Pilkington

Why Christa Pilkington chose Temecula
This home is outside the city without being cut off from anything. The 5 acre property is private and peaceful, however anything you need is close by. The wineries are all just minutes away, and a short drive into the center of town brings you to everything else, restaurants, shopping, grocery stores, gas stations. We love the seclusion that this property offered without having to give up the convenience of living in the city.
What makes this House unique
The home has an amazing view of the sunset. It is peaceful sitting out on the patio in the mornings listening to the neighbor's horses and watching the hot air balloons floating in the sky while having your coffee or having a glass of wine while watching the sunset. It also offers guests the option of having 2 separate areas for larger groups who want to vacation together but still want the option of retreating to their private space.

Cozy wine country retreat
This was a nice rental property. Christa was responsive and helpful with all of our questions. The property was equipped with all the standard amenities and was exactly what we needed. We didn't have an issue with the layout; the people staying upstairs used the side entrance and didn't have to walk through the downstairs bedroom.
Excellent location, style and manager!
My girlfriends and I stayed her for a girl's weekend this past weekend. It was fabulous! We had 7 girls and we all fit comfortably in this house and still had all the creature comforts of being at home! I highly recommend this property to everyone who wants to wine taste in Temecula and make a weekend of it! The property owner was amazingly accomodating, an excellent communicator and was very nice to deal with! I will definetely be back!
My sons wedding
As far as I’ concerned the house was perfect for what I wanted. The house was clean and there was enough towels and toiletries. It was quiet and close to the venue of the my son’s wedding. I got a quick response to a couple of questions. I would recommend Christa if you’re looking for a quiet place that seems to located nicely in the Temecula Valley Wine country
We were in town with our two sons for a friends wedding and stayed at Christa's place. It was a great experience and the house was very well maintained and Christa was very accommodating to all our needs and questions. The house is big, nicely furnished, airy and is located in the heart of wine country.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone visiting the Temecula area.
Close & Convenient
We stayed here while celebrating our daughters wedding. The Property was very close to the venue which made it very easy to retrieve forgotten items and to take a break between decorating. The beds were very comfortable and everyone enjoyed their own space.
My family and truly enjoyed our stay
This home was great for our group. The house is like two houses in one which worked perfect. We had 4 seniors staying on the first floor and the young crowd on the second floor that also has a kitchen. It couldn’t not have been any better. Christa was super receptive and promptly responded to any question. I felt comfortable asking anything . She was very accommodating. We love the location of the property. It was a great experience.
Thank you Christa!!!!!
