Location

Lake Elsinore, California, United States

Lake Elsinore is not considered a tourist destination or even a posh resort, however, when you ask just about anyone in Orange County, they probably learned to water ski on our lake. It is a very diverse socio-economic area and is considered a desirable family community. We are located minutes from the beautiful Temecula Valley and all of the activities it offers. Lake Elsinore is a small quaint town with a diverse ethnic populace. It is not usually considered a tourist destination, just a small town with a small lake. Our subdivision is 14 years new and is considered upscale for the area. See our Guidebook here on this site for points of interest, restaurants, and shopping, etc. Our neighbors are professionals and some like us who are retired moving here to get away from Orange County and many other LA area traffic and noise! At night it is very quiet and so peaceful! We love the beautiful Cleveland National Forest towering over our town, (for us locals -Laguna Mountains) with easy access to beautiful San Juan Capistrano Mission and Beaches of Orange County, using The Ortega Hwy or Hwy. 74. It is a quick and east 40 minute drive out to the coast. It is so very quiet especially at night, and you can sit outside and treat yourselves to a night of star gazing and satellite spotting! The Temecula Wine Country is a quick 25 minutes south on Interstate 15, and at certain times of the year, you may be able to book a Balloon ride over the beautiful Temecula Valley. In late May, The Temecula Valley Hot Air Balloon Festival happens. And, we have a Zip Line company close by and even a Paint Ball location. At the end of Lake Elsinore, you will be delighted to find the small airport in which you can book a Sky Dive, and or other air activities. Also, many of our guests take a Balloon ride up and over the Temecula Valley, a real treat! We also have adventurous hikes to waterfalls and rock climbing within minutes of our Casita. Or, how about treating you and your loved one to a day at the Glen Ivy Hot Springs and Spa just up Hwy 15, a few miles. Horseback riding is also available in the area, as well as BMX racing. And the lake is awesome for boating, fishing and other water sports. At various times of the year, Lake Elsinore has premium boat racing events. Book "R Friends" Casita today for a quiet and or exciting home away from home today!

I am a retired Interior Designer, owner of By Design Interiors on the Island of Kauai. My husband and I were both high school teachers in San Diego in the 70's and 80's and moved to Kauai in the mid 80's. We have 3 daughters and 4 grandchildren. We love being Grandparents and just adore our "Gbabies"! We enjoy traveling everywhere and have been to Fiji, Europe, Mexico and many states nationwide. Our life motto: It's not where you go or what you do, it's who is beside you that counts! We have enjoyed being Airbnb hosts as Hospitality is something that comes very natural for both of us. Most important is our faith and our favorite Bible verse is " I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me" Philippians 4:13.
