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.

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.

Perfect, spacious, and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we needed for our time in Temecula. The outdoor space was beautiful and perfect for the couple of get togethers we had there. The inside was also lovely with plenty of space for people to relax without feeling crowded. We highly recommend booking this house and would certainly stay again if we needed the space.

Stayed with two other couples for a weekend wedding at Wiens. Very comfortable one story home with great gated entry, hilltop location and patio area. Perfect location! Wish we had time to stay longer and will be back again hopefully soon. Thank you so much.

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!
