Eye Candy for the Heart & Soul

  • 5 of 5

This was our family's second stay at Villa Serenita. So glad to have had the use of this wonderful property for more family memories. Everything 11 of us could want or need...great rooms, incredible views, infinity edge pool, perfect weather, and THE most accommodating manager. So hard to leave. If it ever goes on the market, I want to be first in line.

Amazing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing! The view was breathtaking and the pool was perfect. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at the house and the extra pool towels were much appreciated. We did have a small problem with ants, however the concierge manager,Natalie, quickly got someone over to the house to spray. I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat

No one wanted to leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this fabulous home for a special 60th birthday celebration for my sister. She knew I had rented a home in Temecula but had not seen any pictures prior to our arrival. My sister travels a lot and has stayed in some very nice places so I really wanted to rent a home that would make her say “wow!” when she saw it.

Well, I can tell you this place definitely did that! Upon our arrival, she was literally walking around saying ‘wow’ in every room. The views from the home are breathtakingly beautiful. She summed it up by saying it was ‘over the top’. Mission accomplished! The other friends who joined us for the long weekend enjoyed golfing, trips to the casino or shopping in Old Town (we actually did a little wine tasting before we checked in to the house), but other than having her birthday dinner at a local restaurant, my sister did not leave the house for our entire stay!

Jennifer was great about quickly answering all of my emailed questions prior to check-in and a couple that I had after check-in. The home was well-stocked with everything anyone would need. All guests slept comfortably in their beds, and my sister remarked that the bed in the master bedroom was especially comfortable (she is not always easy to please in that regard).

We very much enjoyed watching the hot air balloons floating over the valley each morning we were there. The views from the backyard patio and pool area are stunning, but can also be enjoyed from inside the great room. Both the home itself and the surrounding grounds are very well-maintained.

The only thing I would warn about is with the location being fairly remote (and believe me, that is not a bad thing if you are trying to get away from the city), on Saturday night we were not able to find a pizza place that would deliver so we ended up going to pick up the food and bring it to the house. There may be some restaurants that do deliver, but if that is your plan, I would definitely call ahead and make sure first.

I look forward to returning to Villa Serenita!

Family vacation in Temecula!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I contacted Jennifer to inquire about Villa Serenita, to our last correspondence, she always responded quickly and was very helpful.

As far as the Villa itself, once we arrived we did not want to leave the property. Everything from the grounds, to the Main house, to the quest house, were in perfect shape. The house, and guest house, were a perfect combination to fit my family of 11, with a little room left over. I have rented a lot of VRBO properties and this one is at the top of my list. If we ever go back to Temecula for another vacation I won't hesitate to rent this property again!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Villa Serenita for our wedding weekend, along with the other smaller villa in the property. My then finance, our bridal party, and I stayed there from 4/13-4/18 and everyone was blown away by the amazing views and the beauty of the house. Everything that we needed for our 5-day stay was available. We cancelled our dinner reservations and opted to stay in, BBQ, and enjoy the scenic view by the pool. In spite of the size of the house (it's huge), it had a very warm and homey feel to it.

Communication with Jennifer Davies (property manager) was efficient and quick. There were no issues with our reservations or the logistics. Everything was smooth sailing! We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Temecula.

Exquisite Property!

  • 5 of 5

This property is absolutely stunning! From the moment you enter the gates, the lanscape is beautiful and grounds are well kept. The sprawling property had plenty of space for our party of ten. The panoramic and breathtaking views of the city, sunsets, hot air balloons and city lights could be seen from the interior as well as the exterior of the home. The impeccable decor, furnishings, kitchen amenities and bedding made the home luxurious, yet comfortable and inviting. The master suite and bathroom are well appointed. My mother made good use of her newfound sanctuary! The other bedrooms were also extremely nice and cozy. The bar, great room and game room were added bonuses. The photos of the property are great, but still don't capture its full essence. Our family celebrated my mother's birthday here and plan to return!

The property manager, Jennifer, was an absolute pleasure to work with and made the rental process painless.

Note: There are no street lights at night and it becomes quite dark when driving. Our navigation was delayed and caused us to miss our turns or turned us in circles. *Best bet: Use main streets De Portola, Anza, SR 79, Temecula Pkwy to gain access to groceries, shopping, gas, restaurants, interstate, etc.

A relatively new region by California winemaking standards, Temecula wine country is quickly catching on as a hot-ticket tourism destination in sunny Southern California. This bucolic stretch of Riverside is today home to more than 35 wineries and a popular food and wine festival that draws hundreds of curious oenophiles each year.

Wineries in Temecula have been quick to respond to the area's new popularity, with many boasting sprawling grounds and spacious tasting rooms. Wedding facilities are also common at wineries, as are live music venues, and seasonal events.

Another popular attraction, is the Pechanga Resort and Casino, the largest casino in the state of California, live performances, dancing, fine dining and golf.
