My husband and I have just returned from a 6 night stay in the Hamm’s Wildomar Suite which we thoroughly enjoyed while on a trip to CA. As soon as we opened the door to the spacious, spotlessly clean, comfortable suite, it felt like a vacation (although we weren’t visiting for vacation, wineries, or a family event as most of their guests probably are). We find the Wildomar area is the best of both worlds- close to everywhere in So Cal, WITHOUT the traffic of the rest of So Cal. After retiring we moved to a remote area in Mexico and when we drive back to the US we specifically return to this area for that reason. A couple times per year, for several years, we’ve returned with a travel trailer and have chosen to stay at an RV park on Lake Elsinore, a few miles from Lisa’s Wildomar suite. This past trip we combined the RV park with the visit to Lisa’s, and we may never use the travel trailer again ! The Wildomar Suite is in a residential neighborhood with a mix of large equestrian properties and homes and has a rural feel with views of snow capped mountains and the green hills of nearby Saddleback Mtn in “The Ortegas”. The area has easy access to Southern Orange County on scenic Ortega Highway for our doctor visits etc, which other visitors will find convenient for trips to the beach, LegoLand or Disneyland. But for us, the best part is within 5 miles of Wildomar (on easily-traveled roads) are the most uncrowded Target I’ve ever shopped in with an “Easy” Home Depot across the street. Less than ½ mile away is my very favorite Costco WITH PARKING and aisles you can actually navigate your cart through even on weekends. On every visit I look forward to a 20 minute scenic freeway drive (with no traffic) to THE world’s best (secret) Trader Joe’s that’s in an undeveloped area with a country feel where you can find a parking spot and shop with only 5 other customers at a time! Granted, if you live in the US (which, after living in Mexico, we began referring to as the “Land of Plenty”t) then you probably wouldn’t be coming to Wildomar for the convenient shopping like we do. Within a few miles of the Wildomar Suite are several grocery stores for your snacks and meals and we found the Suite’s fridge, microwave and dinette set provided everything we needed to dine “in”. I wouldn’t call the area “restaurant central” if that’s important to you on a vacation, but there are some around. There are Starbuck’s etc but you’ll need to drive or Uber to get there. Of course the AC in the Suite works great, but if you’re not familiar with the area, it gets H-O-T in the summer (90’s-100+). Hosts Lisa and Mike are wonderful to chat with on the patio in the evening if you’d like, but they’re very conscientious of their guest’s privacy if you prefer not to mingle.
Owner's Response: Hi Jeff and Cindy!!! Glad you made it back home safe and sound. Thank you so much for your detailed review of your stay and our area. This should help potential guests get a good feel for what they can expect by choosing to stay in our Studio. I am so looking forward to seeing you again on your next trip down. And as you noticed, we do book up the weekends pretty quickly so you will definitely want to make your plans well in advance for an extended stay. We do now have 2 units so hopefully we will be able to accommodate your needs. Have a great summer. See you in the winter.
Lisa's place could not have been more comfortable or perfect for us. We are two women friends who wanted to tour wineries. We parked our car and called Uber and away we went. There's a big comfy bed and a sleeper sofa that was great for me. The guest house had every amenity we could have needed - coffee/creamers, small fridge for my cheese and salami, extra bathroom toiletries, wifi, etc. We met Lisa for a bit as we checked in and she was accessible by phone if needed. We would absolutely stay again!
My friends and I had such a great experience at this place. The room was so large and spacious, clean, and cozy. Lisa was such an amazing host, going above and beyond to make sure we had a nice stay! Would definitely stay here again if I'm ever in the area!
My friends and I really enjoyed staying here! This space sleeps 4 perfectly. There's a brand new sleeper-sofa and extremely comfortable bed. Lisa and her husband were very hospitable and kind and made the check-in/out process super easy.
