Tucked in the hills of  San Diego, our organic subtropical farm is a great centrally located getaway destination. We have four homes on our 20 acre farm to choose from. The first is our one-bedroom, Romantic Farmstay with Hot tub, and is on the first floor of the original farmhouse.  This 4-room, one-bedroom suite has it’s own entrance and is completely separate from the main farmhouse. Relax in your own hot tub and enjoy the quiet and amazing view! The second is our two-bedroom Farmstay Bungalow with hot tub. The house is nestled in an old growth avocado grove and has its own miniature chicken barn for gathering your morning eggs.

The third property is our Romantic Mountain House. It’s the original guest house of the farm here, and is perched on a hillside with expansive views. This 3-room small guesthouse has a functional kitchen with an under counter refrigerator/freezer, a Queen size 4 poster bed in the master bedroom and a full sized sofa sleeper. The adjoining patio offers a large hot tub, and a dining table that overlooks the splendid view of the valley below.

The forth and newest offering is our Whimsical Farmstay Escape and is on the first floor of our family farmhouse. Separate entrance and private patio with view. Lovely queen bed and beautiful mosaic work throughout. Accommodates up to three quests with a pull out, full size sleeper.

If you live in the city, you may be surprised at the majestic night sky. Many come here with plans to go into nearby Fallbrook or Temecula for dinner, and end up cancelling their plans to just enjoy the quiet and solitude that our farm offers. Consider saving your money and dining in! Your kitchen is stocked with fresh salad fixings, breakfast items, and staples such as rice, (with rice cooker), sugar, farm fresh rainbow eggs, coffee (both regular and decaf), cream, bottled water and a local red wine.

Meet our herd of Nigerian dairy goats! They’re delighted to meet visitors, and are gentle and friendly. Join us when we tend to them each afternoon between 3:00 and 4:00.   Our pair of alpacas have taken up the important duty of guarding our flock of chickens, and will greet you as you enter the farm from the fence line of their enclosure.

The Community

Little known, even to San Diegans, Rainbow, California is adjacent to Fallbrook and is right off the I-15 freeway, yet our farm seems like it’s miles away from the city. Only a few minutes off the I-15, we’re freeway close. 40 minutes or so to Oceanside’s beautiful beaches and Carlsbad’s flower fields and Legoland, and an exit south of Temecula’s wine country tours,  right in between San Diego and Los Angeles renowned attractions. Twenty-five minutes or so from Cal State San Marcos University, thirty-five minutes or so from San Diego Wild Animal Park in Escondido and a little over an hour to Seaworld and world famous Balboa Park. The local farmers’ market is on Saturday and is 15 minutes away in Old Town Temecula…a destination in itself. We’re one exit south of Temecula. Be sure to check out Temecula Olive Oil Company’s  tasting bar if you find yourself in Old Town. Temecula has a number of vineyards eager to showcase their wines, wine country is one exit north of us (10-15 minutes) and if you book early enough, hot air ballooning is a local wine country favorite. We send a comprehensive Food Shopping Map as well as our signature Activity Guides with your reservation confirmation. There’s so much to do!

 

Getting here

No public transportation, although there is an active Uber/Lyft community here.
