Temecula Estate Rental Photos and Description

Classic California Lives In Temecula

Classic California lives on in Temecula at La Casa Contenta by offering a truly unique escape into unrivaled simplicity, luxury, warmth, and charm of California's Golden architectural era of the 1920's.

This Spanish Colonial Revival estate is located in the heart of the Wine Country (just 1 mile from Temecula's first winery) and minutes to Pechanga casino, Old Town Temecula and classic golf courses, with 5 acres with unparalleled views of the Palomar Mountains, and the Valle De Los Caballos (Valley of the Horses).

Indoors offers 4 bedrooms, 3 baths (one with an antique claw foot tub), elegant formal living room and darling kitchen with an original O'keefe & Merritt antique stove and formal dining room- you will find a peaceful and serene setting for long chats and great dinning.

This being southern California boasting one of the most temperature climates in the world, you will most likely find yourself spending most of your time here enjoying the delightful outdoor living and kitchen areas, huge pool and separate built -in spa.

Drive up the magnificent Italian Cypress lined private driveway and you'll immediately know why you came here, step through the door and feel immediately at home, and continue to the Italianesque grounds beyond and you'll know why you would want to stay for ever!

Are we in Temecula...or TUSCANY??

  • 5 of 5

Casa Contenta was perfect for our recent girls weekend. We comfortably slept 8 in the house. The owners/property managers did a great job showing us around and making sure we felt comfortable.

While the house is lovely and met all our needs, NOTHING compares to the backyard, the view, and the outdoor experience at this place. The view, the pool/jacuzzi, the outdoor eating areas (did I mention the VIEW?) all had us believing we were in Tuscany instead of Temecula. It was truly spectacular.

The house was also easy to find and really close (10 minute drive, max) to local wineries and grocery stores/shops. So while we felt like we were at a retreat, we weren't far from civilization (or from an Uber to take us there).

There were small things inside the house that were dated or showing their 'antique charm', but nothing that put a damper on our overall enjoyment.

Overall a fantastic find and we all want to go back! Thanks, John!

Gorgeous piece of property

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time at this beautiful, peaceful property. The house was big enough for a large group and the back yard and pool were a tremendous size. The property manager was very nice and hospitable. We would recommend this superb location for anyone looking for a quiet getaway that's close to restaurants and all of the wonderful Temecula wineries!

Glamorous quality home, full of charm, room to lounge, enjoy family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a short two nights and it certainly wasn't long enough. The architectural details of the home took my breath away from the start. There really are no words to describe how beautiful the home is and how thoughtful the homeowners have been with their decorative choices. I felt like I transported in time to a Casablanca set, or maybe Romeo and Juliet, with all of their balconies (4 on my count). Piano, old silver, decanters, wood trim, exposed cathedral beams. . .and that's just the lounge. The outdoor space has no less then five "rooms" to sit and enjoy a beverage and a book. The backyard must have been designed by a professional, with hedges and stairs leading to a gated pool and separate spa. There is a monks table off the main family room which served us well for our meals. There's lots of elbow room from the neighbors so we felt like we were in our own oasis. The gated driveway is lined by tall Cypress trees that lead to the entrance.

We came with children and my 70 year old mother. It is important for those with older family to know that four of the sleeping rooms are up a long tiled flight of stairs. My mom didn't have a problem with it but if my father were with us they would have had to sleep in the downstairs room, a queen bed, shared bathroom. The master suite upstairs is lush and rich with a king bed, antique looking furnishings, large balcony, and private bathroom. The ceiling in the master has exposed beams on the part of the room, it's very beautiful. The other rooms had elegant bedding, sizable closets, the rooms themselves were not terribly large but perfect for the function of sleeping. The whole house feels both welcoming and very upscale. The furnishings really speak to the imagination of the owners and we relished in that. For all of my siblings we found a good vibe and our mood was positive the whole trip. We couldn't have asked for a better home to have our family reunited.

In a lovely way it seems the owners are still very much a part of the house. That level of care given to the house sets it apart from others. We've stayed at vacation rentals throughout California and this was the most remarkable. We will absolutely stay again.

Relaxing and comfortable!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Check in and out very easy! Property management very nice. The grounds are amazing !!! We spent a week here for our daughters wedding and it was so nice to have this amazing piece of property to come home to after doing our "wedding festivities" each day. The pool and hot tub got their share of use!! Items to make sure you have prior to spending your first night: COFFEE :) dish soap and paper towels. Also, you need to take note and keep track of your personal items. While the home is decorated beautifully you can loose them among the nick-nacks and such. If visiting the area again we would most definitely stay here again. It is very welcoming. Thank you to the owners for sharing their home with us!!!

Great place, good managent

  • 5 of 5

Me and my college friends were in town for a wedding. While Temeculah is a bit of hike to get to, especially in LA traffic, the destination of this house made it worth it. The pool was amazing, the house was beautiful, and the management made it easy to use. The house was so large, even with a max capacity, there were rooms we didn't even get to and a lot of space on the grounds we didn't get to explore. Great place for bringing a group of friends or family.

Fabulous, charming, relaxing

  • 5 of 5

As we drove up, we were amazed at the beautiful grounds, circular driveway, and spectacular view. Stepping over the threshold, it was like stepping into a past era of days of old Hollywood glam from the 20’s and 30’s. Comfortably and beautifully decorated with family belongings, this house is warm and welcoming. It is obviously a well-loved home. The grounds are fabulous! With multiple seating and dining areas spread throughout the property, this again reminds one of another time of garden parties and social gatherings. John, the property manager, was very accommodating, as we had to change our schedule more than once. He walked us through the property, detailing how the pool, spa, and HVAC systems worked. Then he left us to enjoy our stay. Our daughter was married that week so we spent much of our time coming and going to the venue, not really taking advantage of the home. Not only was it homey and relaxing, it was more cost effective to stay than hotel rooms for the week. We hope to stay once again so the house can enfold us into its charm.

Mikki and John B.
