Escape to Temecula Vacation Villas

Laid-back luxury awaits at two effortlessly elegant locations

Make this summer magical with a restful, rejuvenating retreat to Temecula Wine Country Villas (TWC Villas).

Nestled in the heart of gorgeous Temecula Wine Country, two inviting spots are ready to welcome guests into the lap of luxury all summer long.

Gaia Inn & Spa and Villa Inn & Spa feature sparkling saltwater swimming pools and sprawling weekend breakfasts, where guests can feast on eggs, pancakes, waffles, pastries, fruit, and yogurt, followed by wine tastings that pair perfectly with cool summer evenings.

Whichever dreamy destination you visit, you’re bound to be entranced by the sumptuous surroundings and first-class amenities.

“Our micro-resorts are the only accommodations of their kind in Temecula Wine Country, with luxurious rooms, adults-only properties, beautiful scenery, and resort-style pools on estate properties. There’s nothing else like it in Temecula,” says General Manager Arrianna Saunders.

Owners Thomas DeCarlo (the Visionary) and Alexandra DeCarlo (the Designer) have been in the business of offering luxury accommodations for over a decade.

“Temecula Wine Country has so much to offer entertainment-wise, but it lacked exclusive accommodations for couples and small groups wanting to relax in a resort-style atmosphere while remaining close to all the local wineries.”

In the fall of 2022, they launched Gaia Inn & Spa, providing upscale accommodations and beautifully decorated rooms for guests.

“Our resorts provide a high level of service and attention to detail, with a focus on creating a luxurious, relaxing experience for our guests,” explains Arrianna, noting that the upscale setting is ideal for those who wish to escape the daily grind in a serene environment.

There’s no shortage of personal touches that can be added for a completely customized experience, with options like massages, room upgrades featuring chilled wine and rose petals, and more. 

Hot on the heels of Gaia Inn & Spa was the launch of Villa Inn & Spa, which opened in the winter of 2022.

Upon their arrival at Villa Inn & Spa, visitors are mesmerized by views of rolling hills that are reminiscent of the south of France.

In addition to boasting beautiful scenery and opulent accommodations, these innovative properties are also environmentally friendly.

Both Gaia Inn & Spa and Villa Inn & Spa have enough solar power to be self-sustained, with multiple banks of Tesla batteries to extend the use of solar power through the night.

If generating all of their own power via solar panels weren’t enough, the pools are also heated with solar-heated water to enjoy swimming over six months a year.

Creating an unparalleled escape for their guests is something the DeCarlos pursue with unwavering dedication, and they’re well aware it takes a village to do so. Each member of their team is deeply appreciated, including Arrianna and Housekeeping Manager Maria DeLeon.

“Our Maître’ D, Arrianna Saunders, is highly skilled in hospitality and customer service. She has an innate ability to make every guest feel welcome, valued, and special by providing personalized, attentive service,” says the DeCarlos.

“She’s also highly knowledgeable about local wineries and restaurants, which allows her to make informed recommendations based on our guests' tastes and preferences.”

The DeCarlos, along with the rest of their treasured TWC  Villas team, have their sights set on an even brighter future when it comes to creating lifelong memories for their guests.

“We envision becoming the top full-service, exclusive Temecula Wine Country resort by partnering with the best wineries and restaurants in the area, offering our guests a complete vacation experience. We envision our properties will become the premier micro-resorts within a 33,000-acre resort called Temecula Wine Country.”

“Temecula’s Mediterranean climate, cool nights, and warm sunny days make it a perfect vacation destination for more than just a weekend,” says Alexandra.

“We are passionate about creating an exceptional experience for our guests, ensuring that everyone leaves feeling happy, satisfied, and eager to return. Our goal is to provide a seamless, stress-free vacation experience, where guests can relax, unwind, and enjoy.”
