Family-friendly desert escape
Family-friendly desert escape
Clean, comfortable, well-maintained house was perfect for our family of four. Neighborhood is quiet and safe, and is great for bicycling--in fact, the whole town is. Even better if you have mountain bikes because there are seemingly endless dirt roads crisscrossing the desert and leading to all the unusual metal sculptures around town. (And it was nice to have a clean, spacious garage in which to stow the bikes between rides.) Enjoyed seeing all the jackrabbits in the backyard. Owners are friendly, organized, and thoughtful; the house is well-stocked with the basics you need for a short stay. And they seem to be constantly improving things. When I first made the reservation, they mentioned there was no coffee maker at the house. By the time I got there, they had added one!

About the owner: I am a retired person in my mid fifties, married to my lovely wife, Brigitta (in the picture) for 24 years. We have a daughter, Ashley, and a son, Edward, both of whom are planning to go to medical school. (Who said it gets easier as they grow up?) We moved to Southern California from Canada twelve years ago and love it. We visited the desert a couple of times with some prejudice, I might add, but the more we came the more we loved it. We enjoy outdoor activities, the serenity and beauty of the desert. I find it healing, very relaxing to spend time here. The desert air, the stars at night, the whole environment is magical. There are places to visit, sights to see, trails to discover. It's an experience you'll want to return to. I hope you'll enjoy it too.
Why the Owner Chose Borrego Springs:
My family and I just wanted to have a desert retreat, but still have the amenities and conveniences of a town setting. This house is well located and comfortable. The neighbors are friendly and quiet. I don't feel isolated from other people, all amenities are within a short distance, yet the desert is at my doorstep.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
All the beauty, serenity, the air, the night sky, the magic of the desert is here for you. I like to sit out on the patio in the evening watch as the sun sets over the mountains, lean back in my chair and marvel at the stars, or the morning sky on the East at sunrise. I even use the swing once in while. Sometimes a bird like the road runner in my picture visits. Or the coyotes singing nearby after sunset. It is the perfect place if your are looking for a relaxing, quiet location. But it also offers a lot of opportunity for an active lifestyle in the surrounding areas. We are in the De Anza Borrego Desert with trails to discover, sights to see, and to play and enjoy the desert. (Ample of information on the internet on it.)
