Rolling Hills, vast views of avocado and orange groves and a peaceful vibe all contribute to De Luz Temecula being one of the top country living areas in all of Southern California. In this blog post, I’m going to go over specifics about the community which are very important when thinking of buying or renting a home in De Luz Temecula.  at the end of this blog post I will have a specific home search that is local to the De Luz community. This home search is updated daily and will give you the most accurate information  I said this straight from the local MLS.

Overview 

De Luz, Temecula is located just west of the 15 freeway in Temecula. It consists of around 20,000 acres and is mainly used for agriculture that includes both avocado and citrus trees. One thing that makes De Luz, Temecula unique is it is one of the few communities in Southern California that is unincorporated.  In 1979 it started the community services District. This enabled the De Luz community to perform its own road construction and maintenance and extended police protection, which is now hired out from the Riverside County Sheriff.

The district is also responsible for Traffic Control. If signs are needed or roads need to be added or improved this is the responsibility of the community.

One of the great things about Temecula is how close amenities are to many of these communities. De Luz is probably the one unique neighborhood in Temecula where you are going to have to drive a few minutes to get to things like grocery stores or restaurants. The one benefit to this is you don’t have all of that traffic. the de Luz area, whether it was to show homes or play golf it was always a relaxing drive or day. 

Golf 

You will have golf in your backyard in the De Luz community which is Cross Creek. Cross Creek is one of my favorite golf courses in the area, not only for golf but for the landscape and pure serenity of the area. The course is tucked away behind the mountains with gorgeous views, well-manicured greens and Fairways and challenging for any golfer.

Weather

Weather in the De Luz community is going to be similar to Temecula or the Inland Empire. You’re going to have 90% of your days with sunshine and beautiful weather. you’re going to get some rain in December, January and February while you’re hot months will be June, July, August, and September.  Personally,  the hot weather really doesn’t bother me until around September. I enjoy the barbecue weather and pool weather for sure. Many of the De Luz Temecula homes will have pools which you can enjoy during these months.

My Opinion On De Luz

 I have written blog posts and produced videos extensively on some of the country-style communities in Temecula which include Los Ranchitos and Meadowview. These two communities have more of a horse property feel while De Luz Temecula has the agricultural feel. In my opinion,(I am not into horses) De Luz Temecula would definitely be my choice out of these three communities. I absolutely love the landscape, views, vast orange and avocado trees, and having a beautiful golf course in my backyard.  I would have no problem spending a few weeks alone in De Luz because of something like the Coronavirus. I could easily be a hermit in this area of Temecula for a while.

If you are looking for a website with more specific information, I strongly suggest you check out the De Luz Temecula Community website here. It has tons of information specific to De Luz Temecula,  way more than I want to get into on this blog post. I have called a few times with questions and they are very helpful.
