Shopping & Dining²

Visit The Market on site where We Proudly Serve Starbucks™ or pick up a few snacks and kitchen essentials. There are also grocery stores located near the resort, so you can easily settle in and take advantage of a home-cooked meal in the comfort of your villa’s kitchen.

We stayed at this resort because we wanted to explore the San Diego and Wine country area. We felt this resort was central to both. San Diego was only 20 minutes away, as well as the ocean and Temecula wine country. Would stay there again.
