We always go above and beyond for our guests, wishing for them the best vacation ever, with memories they won’t forget!
For years Mike & I would go on vacation and stay in 5 star hotels all over the world, and still be disappointed. We would always say, why do we ever bother going anywhere as our own home is nicer?… So our mission was to create a magical place, where you would feel right at home, yet it be the decadent home you always dreamed of!
Our guests reward us with 100% consistent 5 star raving reviews here on our Domaine Chardonnay website, on Google, Tripadvisor, Airbnb and VRBO.
Here is what some of our guests have said:
“We absolutely loved our stay at Laura and Michael’s stunning estate. We stayed in the Chapel Suite. Laura was such a gracious host. She was there to greet us and show us the suite upon arrival. It was prettier than I ever imagined from the photos. It was spotless (and I am meticulous when it comes to cleanliness). The area is quiet, the view is breathtaking… and you feel transported to another land. Watching the hot air balloons each morning was spectacular. Breakfast was made with love and personally delivered to our suite each morning, within a few minutes of sending a text to advise we were up and ready to eat. It was divine, day after day, and we enjoyed so much sitting on our garden patio, savoring each delicious meal. The Nespresso machine was a nice touch with the coffee pods provided each morning. From the lovely bamboo pillow top mattress to the luxurious bedding, bath linens and bath robes, to the gorgeous furniture and accents, romantic mirrors and lighting, down to the dainty glassware, china and silverware, everything was perfect and magical… which is exactly how I like things!
I cannot say enough about this property or about Laura! I truly cannot think of a single detail that was not thought of for our 3 night get away. The only enhancement I can think of is that a hot tub on the patio may entice guests to book longer stays. We already booked again for memorial Day weekend before we checked out, as I was sad to leave. Its that perfect. We feel rejuvenated and relaxed. Thank you so much, Laura & Michael!” 5 stars

“We absolutely loved our time at Domaine Chardonnay. During the Covid-19 global pandemic, our lives were flipped upside down when the wedding we spent months planning was no longer going to be a possibility. We had planned to have a larger ceremony at another venue, and when we fund out this couldn’t happen we didn’t know what to do. A friend of ours pointed us in the direction of Domaine Chardonnay and we haven’t had any regret since. With open arms Mike & Laura us in to their estate, allowing us to host our small family only ceremony under the pergola. What a gorgeous place to get married! They were so kind and accommodating. Mike and Laura really made our dreams come true! Not only that, but we got to stay in the Chapel Suite, which was PHENOMENAL! It was gorgeous, comfortable, and had an amazing view. In the morning Mike and Laura even delivered to us a delicious homemade breakfast! We can’t wait to come back someday to celebrate our anniversary. We are so thankful for Domaine Chardonnay and definitely recommend to anyone to stay there!”

“My little piece of heaven. Domaine Chardonnay was lovely beyond imagination. Laura, the proprietor, is simply the most gracious host EVER. She thought of every detail, which made our stay magical beyond comparison. The Chapel Suite was stunning, the view was to die for, breakfast each morning was divine, and every thoughtful touch was breathtaking! If you can splurge a little, this is the perfect getaway for rest and relaxation. We already booked our next stay before we checked out…otherwise leaving would have been devastating LOL! Now we have a return visit to look forward to and we cannot wait! Enjoy! Thank you Laura for a most spectacular weekend!” 5 stars

“Laura and Michael, thanks a lot for sharing your lovely private vineyard. We have enjoyed all the details that you have provided us in the 6 days that we stayed here with you. It was a marvelous experience that we will never forget. Our life was touched by your place, so much that we now leave it engaged! Thanks for everything and we hope to see you again soon! Love u!” 5 stars
Efrain & Marielys, Puerto Rico, October 2019
It felt as if I was staying in a French chateau- picture perfect setting with design elements that seamlessly drew my eye to the vineyard, the sky and peacefulness of the property. So easy to pull on my Wellies and meander to nearby wine venues. I was happy to return to a gorgeous suite and soaking tub after a day of adventures. Genuine beyond comparable hospitality. Do plan to stay at least a week to let it all seep in. A true awakening for the City dulled senses. Bring a good book, buy some local wine and savor the visual beauty.” 5 stars

“All I can say is WOW and AMAZING!!!! It was even better than I expected. Laura and Michael were so friendly and accommodating. The room was so beautiful with all the thoughtful touches and the view of the vineyard was unbelievable. I have never left a review like this before. It is right in the heart of where all the wineries are. This place was an absolute gem. I can’t wait to come back again.” 5 stars

“This lovely Chateau with a gorgeous vineyard view is a perfect place for a relaxing escape. We loved it! To top that off, the breakfast you served was simply excellent! We look forward to another relaxing stay with you. Of course, a bonus, was the time we spent with the two of you, and Sophie, and Harvey and Bobbie. Many thanks Laura & Mike!!!” 5 stars

“Laura and Michael’s property is in the middle of Temecula wine country! The rental is beautifully decorated, brand new, and so relaxing. They provide a delicious breakfast every morning of your stay and are really mindful of privacy. The property is easy to access and the backyard offers breathtaking views of the valley. The bathroom is a lovely spa-like environment complete with a large tub and beautiful walk-in shower. Laura and Michael’s ——– far surpasses any of the hotels in the Temecula area. I highly recommend staying here!” 5 stars

Leslie & David, Eagle Rock, CA, June 2019
“Most amazing place to reconnect with each other and detach from the world. We celebrated our five year anniversary and we couldn’t have asked for a more memorable time! So glad we booked two days because we were able to enjoy everything this property has to offer from the amazing breakfasts, beautiful views, amazing bath tub and so much more. We felt like we were on our own island away from everyone else and we were able to spend some much needed private alone time. Highly recommend this place for anyone just trying to relax and enjoy life. Thank you so much for a truly wonderful experience <3 We will be back!” 5 stars

“What a beautiful suite! Laura was an amazing host from the moment we booked, always going above and beyond during our stay. The suite was absolutely gorgeous! The view from the suite overlooking the vineyard was breathtaking. Such a beautiful, private view to enjoy our morning cup of coffee and afternoon glass of wine. We loved the thoughtful touch of the complimentary breakfast during our stay. It was absolutely delicious! We had a short stay but will definitely be coming back. What a great first experience of Temecula wine tasting! Thank you Michael and Laura for welcoming us into your beautiful home! ” 5 stars
