My mother is planning on moving to California from the east coast, and we were attracted to the low prices and climate of the IE. She is moving because her arthritis is much better in a desert climate.

She is in her mid-50s and is looking for a residential area with low crime, but would rather not live in the "middle of nowhere." There would have to be shopping malls and restaurants in the area.

Commute is not an issue, as she does not work. Although, ideally, she would be within an hour of a LA/SD.

Price-wise, the cheaper the better. She is planning on selling her house in NY for about 350k. She does not want to spend any more than that on a house.
Ideally, she would like to pay under 250k for a house with at least 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a pool and 1800+ square feet.

We were looking at Temecula real estate and loved the climate/location/prices, but don't know much about the area itself. Would this be a match for her? Where else should we consider?

Temecula, southern Corona(generally unincorporated areas), Murrieta, Menifee, maybe even Palm Springs. Technically, all those areas are in the middle of nowhere as compared to the greater LA area, but they all have plenty of shopping, plenty of restaurants, and are nice with low crime. Avoid areas like Lake Elsinore and Perris

Temecula and Murietta will put her roughly halfway between SD and LA. Lots of shopping choices and residential options. Beautiful surroundings.

... with an edge going to San Diego. It'd be more about an hour-and-a-half to LA (without much traffic).

Hence the "roughly".

That's a very bland fish.

There are tons of upscale areas, yes even in Lake Elsinore and Perris.
