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 Murrieta

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.

Gorgeous Wedding and Vacation Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to use this for our wedding location since we were able to stay here the night before and the night after the wedding. This was the perfect spot for a wedding! The house is so immaculate, it's not even like you are having a wedding at someone's house. It really was a gorgeous wedding venue! My pictures came out amazing, and everyone at the wedding just loved the environment! The trampoline was an added benefit to entertain our guests. Our wedding fit 100 guests comfortably, there was plenty of parking for them, and we had plenty of shade for our summer wedding! We also picked this venue because we wanted to have an after wedding pool party. Staying at the venue really helped us not to feel rushed after the wedding (as most people need to leave their wedding venues that night), and just be able to relax in the pool. I will also say that Diane and Kerry are the best!! They made this experience so easy and were so available and accommodating. They are really some of the best people and ensure your experience is great :) I seriously would love to go back just to enjoy the house some more!

Beautiful property, great homeowners

  • 5 of 5

We rented the property for our company Christmas party and it was perfect! The owners were accommodating and even met with us a few days in advance so we could check out the area and assess what we needed for the party. We brought some Christmas decorations and had about 45 people come for a few hours. The kitchen was huge and the rooms were very comfortable. Everything was beautifully kept and our guests had a great time. The property is private enough that you don’t feel too close to neighbors. The arena parking was great to accomodate the number of guests we had. The hot tub warmed up quickly and the homeowners were nice enough to supply extra propane for the outdoor torches which really lent to the party’s ambiance. Only recommendation would be to add some outdoor lighting to the patio area as it got quite dark and our caterer was set up outside. Great experience!

An amazing villa in an amazing location

  • 5 of 5

We chose to stay in Murrieta for our daughter's wedding in Temecula. This villa was perfect for our family. So many amenities for us all to enjoy! The owners were so friendly and went out of their way to make us comfortable. That personal touch is what we love about VRBO. Our family loved it so much and that made our daughters special day even more special for us! I highly recommend renting this beautiful home!

Great venue for our wedding party, beautiful home and surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had a small wedding ceremony here in October 2017. The venue was great for this size party and the hosts were very helpful with preparations and suggestions. We even used one of the caterers they recommended and were pleased with the service.

The house is well equipped and had everything we needed for the duration of the stay. The lawn and pool area are large and accommodated our guests well. The children enjoyed the pool, Jacuzzi and tennis courts. There is also a wooden arch in a raised area at the end of the lawn which worked well for our ceremony.

Unfortunately some items were accidentally damaged during the stay, but the owners were understanding and easy to deal with (the insurance purchased covered the damage).

I would definitely recommend this venue to others for a getaway or an event. The home and surroundings are well worth the drive.

Amazing Birthday Vacation AND Dianne's a VIRGO!!!

  • 5 of 5

My trip started with 12 and ended with 5, Dianne stayed in contact with me throughout the entire stressful process and put me at ease with her relaxed way of handling. Finally meeting her was amazing and the house? Breathtaking! We have so many pictures to share and everyone I show feels the same, that house is simply amazing! We had some great nights and Dianne and Kerry recommended "The Gambling Cowboy" steakhouse and it was so good! I honestly can't wait to return, the Hibbs Family has an amazing home and they're truly great people. I couldn't have asked for a better vacation, I just wished I could sit down long enough to watch a movie in the theater. Everytime I tried, I found myself compelled to get up and just explore. It's so much property, who can sit in one spot for that long? Thanks, Dianne and Kerry! You guys are the best and I hope I was a great tenant as well. God bless!
