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.

Over exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

The property photos do not do justice to how beautiful the house is in person. The house has so much available for use, and the view in the backyard is spectacular!!! The property management lady Natalie was extremely responsive our entire stay. This house is located near old town temecula which is fantastic. The master suite is amazing.

We will def be staying here again next year!

Very nice home. Great location. NO POOL HEAT.

  • 3 of 5

Pros; great location, fabulous views, very nice furnishings, great spa, very good property management support.

Cons: everyone must be INSIDE after 10pm and before 8am, neighbors complained about noise (we were (10) 40+ women with no music just talking), NO POOL HEAT so pool was unusable (management gave us $225 refund for SPA heat for the inconvenience), patio doors off master and other bedrooms are locked leaving no access to outside patio.

Overall, the management was very supportive and responsive. I just wish the noise rules and the pool NON heat would have been conveyed before booking as we would have looked for another house with a heated pool.

Stunningly beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Serenita for four nights, and I just want to say that this is an absolutely gorgeous property!! The house was large and immaculate, but still felt cozy. What really sets this place apart from the others (and I've rented many thru vrbo) is the stunning view -- the infinity pool set against the vineyards and rolling hills in the distance was awesome to behold. My only recommendation would be a pool umbrella and/or awning so I could stay out there all day and not fry in the sun:) The Property Manager and her Assistant were also very responsive for any questions that we had during our stay. I definitely look forward to staying at Villa Serenita again very soon!!
