Temecula’s Santiago Estates

Exploring Temecula is moving forward with our best communities in the Temecula series. In this blog post and video, we will go over Santiago Estates in Temecula. Santiago Estates Temecula is right off Margarita Road and either Jedediah Smith or Santiago Road. If you like this type of lifestyle, it is a luxury to live in one of Temecula, California’s top-end communities. The video attached to this article will show you exactly how to get there.

At the end of this article, there is a home search for Santiago Estates Temecula.

Santiago Estates Temecula is a unique neighborhood. With rolling hills, beautiful views, no HOA, and a low tax rate, it checks a lot of boxes for the country’s lifestyle. The fact that there is no HOA is definitely appealing to many people and is quite unusual in Temecula. While driving through the community, it was truly breathtaking to film some of these gorgeous views. To top it off, there is a beautiful rose garden in the middle of the community.

Santiago Estates Temecula Overview

Lot sizes are going to be larger than most areas of Temecula. They will range in size from two to ten acres. Some of the homes are beautifully landscaped, while others are basic. One of the great things about having no HOA is that you have a choice in regard to what you want to do with your property. Some people have horses; others spend a ton of time landscaping, planting, and making their property look like an oasis.

Santiago Estates Temecula homes will be larger than 5000 square feet. We did notice some new construction that looked to be substantially smaller, maybe 2500–3500 square feet. All the homes in the Santiago Estates Temecula Community are custom, so don’t worry about any type of tract home feel. If we were raising a family, this is the perfect community and something we would gravitate towards. We love the idea of having a great deal of land for the kids to play on without worrying about tons of traffic, noise, or pollution.

Country Living with Convenience

In the video attached to this blog post, I go over some of the amenities close by. From inside the community, it takes 3 and 1/2 minutes to get to shopping, groceries, banks, gas stations, restaurants, or fast food. This is one of the things that we feel makes Santiago Estates very unique. Where else can you live and feel like you’re in a total country haven while having every amenity imaginable three and a half minutes away?


If the school system is important to you, have no fear or worry. We have lived in many different cities throughout Southern California, and although we do not have children, we are confident that Temecula and the Temecula School District are going to be some of the best in all of California. If you would like more information on schools in the area, you can visit Vail Elementary School (, Temecula Middle School (, and Temecula Valley High School (

Santiago Estates is also very close to several top private schools, including Rancho Christian and Linfield.


Being travel lovers (, one of the things we love about Temecula is that we have four airports within an hour and a half’s drive. San Diego, Ontario, Palm Springs, and LAX This is extremely convenient, and I never have trouble finding flights.


If you’re a golfer, you’re in the right place. You have Redhawk, Cross Creek, Temecula Creek, Temeku Hills, and Journey at Pechanga all within a 10-15 minute drive. The one thing we love about golfing in this area is that it’s actually fordable. Living in many different areas throughout Southern California can be frustrating at times due to the high cost of living in many areas. We are not people who enjoy golf enough to spend $100 per round. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay $35 to $50 to play during the week at any of these golf courses except Journey at Pechanga.

So there you have it: some information on a beautiful small community in Temecula called Santiago Estates Temecula. As land becomes more and more scarce throughout Southern California, you’ll be happy to know that those two- to five-acre parcels will always give you space, tranquility, peace, and a sense of relaxation that can be hard to find in many areas of Southern California.
