Our host John was magnificent! The home was imaculat, beautifully decorated they offer you a warm welcome. The personal attention to your stay surpasses any expectation. If you need somewhere to retreat and relax this is the best place. Centrally located to the Wineries and local casinos. Can't say enough good things about our host plus Cocoa is the sweetest...

Extremely warm welcome with british flag to meet me. Very helpful in co-ordinating hot air balloon flight. Lovely couple, with a lovely small Yorkshire terrier dog called Coco! Helpful recommendations for local area

The Union Jack was flying to Honor our British guest to make him feel at home. Dr. Williams was here in Southern California to attend a Medical Conference in San Diego and wanted the experience of a Hot Air Balloon ride. Since Dr. Williams only had a London, England cell number, he left our local number for future contact with... More

A beautiful home, welcoming hosts, and a perfect location. What more could you ask for? Our flight got in very late from Canada. We arrived to a Canadian flag hung outside, a personalized welcome sign inside, and a gracious host who stayed up to greet us. My husband and I stayed for 3 days. We felt very at home, whether...

As a Homestay, we want you to feel at home, which you don't get in a hotel, Inn or Bed and Breakfast. A Homestay is what the name suggests, staying in someones home. We do not prepare or cook on these premises. We are happy you enjoyed your time with us and look forward to host another stay with us... More

John and Valerie were wonderful hosts; so full of knowledge. The Villa is quiet and the facilities are fabulous. The outdoor space is even better than the indoor one. I would recommend this home stay to anyone.

NEW GEL MEMORY FOAM mattresses have replaced the 10 year old mattresses. After reviewing all the possibilities to make a guests stay more desirable, we determined the beds mattresses had to be replaced and upgraded to the latest Gel Memory Foam mattresses for a superior nights sleep. After all, no matter what the rate paid for a nights stay, the... More

Great location & a wonderful home stay! John & Valerie along with Coco were the perfect hosts, & all true to the comments on their website. Lovely accommodations, very clean, comfortable and John is so gracious that he even searched out a special flavored coffee and creamer for us! What they offered was great as well, but John went above... More

January 2015 - Mary & Nick: It is nice to read your GREAT CHOICE of Casa Bella Sera. Most guests review a property when they are not happy with their stay.

This is an absolutely perfect location (if you are visiting the local wineries!) - just minutes from them. The owners are very friendly and accommodating - and their little dog, Coco, is adorable. We highly recommend this location.

January 2015 - Thank you Teresa for your kind words of praise. We are as close to Temecula's Wine Country without being in the vineyards with the Jack Rabbits and Coyote packs. We had guests bring their bicycles and ride to the various wine tasting rooms as the closest winery is short mile from Casa Bella Sera. Thank you again... More

I highly recommend Casa Bella Sera. We stayed for one night and didn't know what to expect. My boyfriend and I were surprised at the comfort, cleanliness, amenities and hospitality. From the bathrobes to the complimentary snacks, nothing was left out. The hosts were friendly and went out of there way to serve us a complimentary breakfast and offer winery... More

Making our guests feel like family is what separates us from Inns and Hotels. You don't have the one on one contact with the management on a daily basis in your hotels or Inns.
