Stunning Views and Outdoor Spaces 

Temecula Valley is known for its natural beauty, and many short-term rentals offer breathtaking views of vineyards, mountains, rolling hills, and lakes. Look for properties with spacious patios, balconies, or decks where you can unwind with a glass of local wine while soaking in the scenery. Some rentals offer luxurious outdoor swimming pools, fire pits, bocce ball courts, tennis/pickleball courts, hot tubs, and BBQ areas.  

Proximity to Wineries and Attractions 

Location is key when selecting a short-term rental in Temecula Valley. Choose a property near the region's renowned wineries and vineyards for plenty of natural beauty. If you are up early, you may see a spectacular display of hot air balloons floating by. If you would like to do some exploring outside of wine country, Old Town Temecula and Pechanga Resort Casino are just a short drive away. And remember: It’s easy to leave the driving to someone else. Ride-share services, as well as transportation and tour options, are plentiful and varied.
