We were celebrating a friend's wedding at Lorimar Winery, and the location of Jeri's home could not have been more ideal. It is in a quiet residential area, which is perfect if you are looking to relax and have privacy.
The home was immaculate upon our arrival (Jeri even let us check in a little earlier than we expected, which we really appreciated). We packed some food for ourselves since there was a kitchen, but Jeri's welcoming touches (putting snacks in a basket, waters/juice in the refrigerator), as well as having the cottage stocked with all of the comforts of home made this a very lovely place to stay. We were here with my husband's parents, and there was plenty of room for the four of us.
This was our first Airbnb experience, and thanks to Jeri, it most definitely won't be our last. We look forward to the next time we can visit Temecula.
Jeri's house in Temecula was amazing!! Perfect for 4-5 people, so spacious and comfortable. Beautiful views and easy access to local wineries and restaurants. I would definitely recommend this place for small groups and would stay again!
This was, by far, the best airbnb experience we've ever had. Jeri and Ted are friendly and welcoming and simply lovely. They even left us some welcome snacks! They were super flexible with arrival and departure time and our friends had a wonderful conversation with Ted when they arrived (we were about 30 mins behind). The vines in the backyard, the balloons overhead in the am, the proximity to all the vineyards... it's pure magic. The house far exceeded our expectations. We had more than enough room and it was so unbelievably comfortable. We instantly felt at home. We will definitely be back and we'll probably bring more folks and rent out the second house on the compound. You've simply got to stay with these two lovely people!
The cottage we stayed at definitely has an old school charm to it. It's at a great location, in the middle of all these vineyards and wineries and was accommodating with fruits, wine and breakfast items. We were a group of 4 and enjoyed staying there, especially with all the space.
Only drawback was the one bathroom that was downstairs when everything was upstairs (loft, kitchen and bedroom). Would recommend this place for a couple.
Thank you Michelle and Eric for staying with us and for your review of our place.
Michelle and Eric and their parents stayed at our Temecula wine country cottage during their vacation here. They were friendly and clean, they left our place in a great condition. It was a pleasure to have them as guest and we would not hesitate to recommend them to any airBnB hosts. Jeri & Ted Maier
Jeri runs a wonderful Air bnb! She greeted us as soon as we arrived and had snacks and wine waiting for us inside the home. The house was spotless and very well cared for! It was also right in the heart of the Temecula wineries which was perfect! I highly recommend staying with Jeri if you are planning a trip to Temecula. I honestly don't know what she could do better.
We enjoyed our extended stay at Jeri and Ted's more than I can say! The guest cottage is lovely, very clean and comfortable. The views off the upper patio are gorgeous! We enjoyed many evenings there! It's a short drive to any attractions in Temecula. The cottage is situated right off the wine trail so vineyards are very close. Ted and Jeri are fabulous hosts and such nice people! We felt like we had total privacy and couldn't be happier with our stay.
