We had a great stay at Jeri's guest house. The beds were very comfortable and the place was tidy. Nice roomy kitchen that opens into the living area. Also great location - it's less than 5 minutes from most wineries.
Spacious and well-equipped, this two-floor apt. worked very well for a small family gathering for a weekend. Jeri was very efficient at check-in. Within minutes we made ourselves at home and had our home base near Temecula. We loved the rural location though unfortunately it was too hot during our stay for walking. Nighttime lows helped cool the 2nd story off but temps in the 90s and above really call for an additional air-conditioning unit. It is clear that Jeri goes out of her way to keep the apt. clean and stocked with snacks and condiments. This would be a good place for a longer stay for people needing 2 bedrooms and privacy.
Thank you for your thorough review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. As wey told you that we were planning to replace the carpet; but the timing was not possible before you checked in, however we replaced the carpet a week after your stay. You are right also that summer is very hot here during the day, but it is pleasant during evening and night time. We are planning to constantly improve our property and appreciated your recommendation. We would be happy to see you back here staying with us again. Best Wishes, Jeri & Ted Maier
Jeri's rental was everything we expected and more. Lots of room, beautiful views, very well stocked. The location couldn't have been better. Jeri was there to greet us and gave us a home away from home for our daughter's wedding weekend. Can't beat the value and the hospitality!
Jeri was very nice and super responsive to all the questions we had. The house is totally stocked with everything and anything you need. Great location-close to the wineries. Great place for kids too. Highly recommended.
We had a great time! Jeri was so welcoming and gave us everything we needed to have a great long weekend!
This was the second time we have had the chance to stay at one of Jeri's home and we are always well pleased. The scenery is so beautiful in the front of their home and the area is very peaceful. Check-in and check-out are very easy and the hospitality is fantastic.
We will be sure to stay again, when we are in the area.
Our stay was wonderful. The location was very convenient and was just a short drive away from many of the wineries. Jeri was easy to communicate with, was in the main house when I arrived, greeted me, and showed me the guest house and it's amenities. The house was very spacious and Jeri had lots of towels for us to use along with toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. There is also wifi available. My friends and I cooked a lot (dinner one night, breakfast each morning, baked one night) and we brought a lot of our own cooking ingredients and supplies but we probably didn't need to bring as much. Jeri had lots of plates, cups, pots, pans, basic cooking ingredients, cooking utensils, coffee, and coffee maker. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

About the Host, Jeri
We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to live in the midst of the Temecula Wine Country behind Monte De Oro and Wilson Creek wineries. The views of the 200+ acres vineyards, the mountains, and the valleys in front of our home are spectacular. We are a couple of world travelers, free spirit, friendly with positive outlook in life. We both used to live and worked in the SF Bay area and moved to Temecula 14 years ago. Jeri earned an MS in Systems Management and worked in IT for High Tech companies for 35+ years. Ted worked in Engineering, Design and Construction Mngt. We love people and love to go places. We have 2 vacation homes at our compound. The Cottage is a two stories building with one bedroom w/ a queen size bed and a bath downstairs. The upstairs bedroom has two twin beds. The living space upstairs is comprised of a fully equipped kitchen, a dining table, a bar and a fully furnished living room with a big screen TV (with Verizon FIOS). Our second place is a 2 bedrooms 2 baths one story villa. There is a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast area. A large living / dining room with a brick wood burning fireplace. The One Story Villa has a private fenced in backyard with a sliding glass door opens to it from the master bedroom. Come visit us in the Temecula Valley Wine Country, enjoy the area, taste the wines and stay at one of our places. It is a joy to share a taste of our country living life and to share the abundance of nature with our guests.
