"What a wonderful way to unwind and relax! Borrego Springs is a beautiful area and the casita provided all the comforts of home. We had everything we could wish for and access to shopping at the stores and markets in town - everyone was so friendly.
The casita is lovely and is located within a gated community. We felt safe walking the grounds - even in the evenings with our little dog and enjoyed sitting out on the patio in the mornings to drink our coffee and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder.
Cynthia was a joy - very quick to respond to any questions we had. It's definitely a trip I would make again!"

"We just got married, and our family made the reservation as our honeymoon. First thing everyone needs to know; this is not a resort, nor a place to be entertained. Borrego is a special place where one can shed all the stress & worries of the regular grind. Dan offers an oasis where people can go unwind and relax in a beautiful place where the magic of the desert permeates your very soul. My new wife and I discovered how easily we become slaves to the daily game; losing sight of what really matters. Dan provided a wonderful, special place for us to enjoy each other's company. No noise, no cars, nothing but the birds chirping, and floating in the pool. I cannot explain how relaxed we became within a day of arriving! The house has every amenity one could desire; in fact, there's a closet full of every thing one might forget to bring, which just adds to making you relax...feel right at home. Some of the reviews I saw are unfair; if you want to "get away from it all" THIS is the place for you. You will not regret staying here, as Dan has covered everything you could possibly need. We will definitely come back, as often as we can!"

"I believe this is our third year at this casitas, at Rams Hill. As other people have mentioned the east facing patio is one of the things we love. Breakfast is a joy when sitting out there. The late afternoons are shaded and the casitas protects you from the winds. Wonderfully appointed and very comfortable place. This particular casitas is the only place we'll stay, if it's just the two of us."

"Rented this vacation home for the month and wanted to pass on a few things should you be considering Borrego Springs, and this vacation home in particular.
NB> I can't really say I'm new at VRBO/Homeaway as I've spent 6 months renting various places thru out the American Southwest. That being said, the following are a few points you may find helpful.
- The home itself is larger than the pictures convey. I had 4 relatives visit over the time I was there and they all said the same thing.
- Three full bathrooms is a definite plus. This, and the overall size, made this vacation home, monthly price competitive, with any of the dozen vacation homes I've rented.
- No rear neighbours. Except for a telephone line, there is an unobstructed sunrise view to; a thru road at half a mile, a golf course/resort at a mile - and Fonts point at the horizon.
- Neighbourhood: quiet. Double O Road is not a thru road, no issues with nearby neighbours/noise.
- All appliances worked as described, dvd and wireless not so. My guests gave up on trying to play any dvds. Wireless was not a rental issue but a local, ISP reliability issue which was affecting various neighbourhoods in Borrego.
If you are fine with a town of only 3000..... in the middle of the desert, ( personally, this is what I wanted), are looking to do abit of light hiking and occassional day trips to the coast or the Coachella Valley etc, then this place would be totally adequate. If you are expecting; stoplights, fast food takeout, nightclubs, shopping experiences etc. then probably not.
I "would" recommend; an AWD ( alot of trailheads are not suitable for a car.) and a laid back approach that this is NOT Palm Springs, . You WILL have desert critters around"
