About Diane Hibbs

We built our home in 2007. Now that our girls are grown, we love sharing our little piece of paradise with others!

Diane Hibbs purchased this villa in 2007

Why Diane Hibbs chose Inland Empire

After many years of living in Orange County, we discovered La Cresta - truly a best kept secret in Southern California!

What makes this villa unique

All properties are a minimum of 5 acres. Oak trees, vineyards, and country living abound. 4th of July parade in front of house. Wildlife is abundant, and if you like to bird-watch, this is the place to be! Absolutely quiet and private, yet family/neighbor friendly. One day you can hike out to the waterfalls. One day you can ride horses or a mountain bike, or just go for a stroll... Have a swim, sit in the jacuzzi with a glass of wine and soak up the wonderful california sunshine! Your dogs will love running in our huge completely fenced 5.25 acres.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We (stayed here for four nights) had a wonderful time! Enjoyed the tennis court, pool and wonderfully comfortable nights.

Elegant and Spectacular!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends really enjoyed this home! There is something for everyone, from the beautiful swimming pool and spa to the tennis court and inground trampoline. We celebrated our granddaughter's first birthday, which resulted in 45-50 people for the day, whom completely enjoyed the homes open floor plan, beautiful level grass in the rear yard that was used for croquet, badminton and wiffle ball and we still had room for an inflatable "Jumpy"! Diane and Kerry have put a lot of effort in ensuring your comfort, not just from the lovely furnishings but the obvious pride they take in maintaining all these comforts!

Absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

The property was absolutely beautiful! It was perfect for myself and my family to stay together the weekend of my wedding. We even were able to bring our dogs which gave us an extra level of comfort knowing they were close by and well taken care of! The owners were super helpful! They thoroughly explained how to operate all the different technology they had in their house and even when we had trouble throughout the weekend they were available to stop by and help. It made for great memories and an unforgettable trip.

Beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Even though our stay was last year I feel I need to write a review. I thought I had. Anyway, from the moment I contacted the owners to us leaving we felt so well taken care of. There were sixteen women enjoying our annual getaway. Everyone one of us enjoyed our time and all the accommodations. The home is everything plus more. The pool area is gorgeous. We had so much fun and felt so special. Upon arrival the owners gave us a thorough tour explaining everything to us. They even recommended a great pizza place down the road that delivers. If we go back to the Temecula area we will definitely be staying here. Lovely owners and property. Again, thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. ;)

Wedding Celebration

  • 5 of 5

We held our wedding at this beautiful house last weekend.

Every guest loved the venue! The pool as the center of the reception is perfect. The house is big and beautiful. There was plenty of room throughout the house and the kitchen is huge! It held 15 people comfortably while we all prepped food. My kids where in the theater and pool 99% of the time, and we could not have asked for a better house to rent from. Owners where not pushy, rude, or overbearing. This is someones house and we treated it as if it was our own. Yes they do have a family portrait on the wall and I see nothing wrong with that. This is our first time using VRBO and I hope every adventure goes exactly how this was. I would strongly recommend this as a place to hold any event. The backyard if PERFECT!

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home.
