"Six adults and one baby stayed during a week of 106*-116* heat! It was a fabulous week regardless. We came with a dune buggy group. The others stayed at the Del Sol motel. We figured out quickly, to start our adventures each day at 4 am. An hour by the pool, watching the stars turn off, looking for the road runner and bunny that made the rounds each morning, a leisurely swim, early breakfast, pack lunches, and be off with the group by 6-6:30am each day. We timed our trips to be back at the compound around 1pm. The air conditioning made for an enjoyable nap for all. Evenings held dinner in town or cooked at home in the well stocked kitchen. Of course evening swims for all! We had cable for the t.v. watchers, and plenty of reading material . Also generous bedroom sizes to allow for private space. There were many outside entertainment options for cooler weather. Even with the extreme heat, it was a very chill experience and no one wanted to go home!"

"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"

"Todd and Trisha are lovely, helpful hosts; their home is clean and comfortable and the views are amazing. However, the home is located directly on a golf course - a very well tended and well groomed golf course. We are not golfers and thus failed to realize what this proximity means. We learned quickly, however. We learned that it takes a lot of machine power to get those greens looking as pristine and well manicured as these are - a lot of very loud machine power that started variously at 6:00 and 6:30 a.m.! Thus our calm, restful retreat disappeared most mornings with the roar of a small tractor. We had to accept that sleeping in was just not going to be a feature of this vacation. Otherwise it was great."
