"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"

"We just spent 5 days in Borrego Springs in this great little condo. It had everything we needed--fully stocked kitchen, bath, wifi and even straw hits and pool "noodles". The property was very quiet--it often felt like we were the only ones there. Great little patio for morning coffee and walking distance from a well-stocked market and several restaurants.
The surrounding Anza-Borrego desert is a treasure trove of hikes, plants and wildlife. Truly just what we needed to dry out our Pacific Northwest bones."

Beautiful comfortable house with great desert views!
"We totally enjoyed our stay here. Dan and Jean's house is large and spacious with everything you could possible need. The view of the mountains in the backyard (next to a wonderful pool) was majestic. Our dogs were happy sniffing around in the large fenced backyard. Location was perfect, close to the park and town. We would definitely come back. The nice gift basket and wine welcoming us would such a treat! It was so nice to come home to such a wonderful house (and Hot Tub) after hiking all day in the desert."

"Borrego Springs is a great location to explore the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and area. We loved the casita! What a wonderful place to return to after a day of hiking. We particularly enjoyed resting on the garden patio. The casita is clean, spacious and comfortable. The gardens at Ram's Hill are beautiful. In all, a beautiful setting. Two great restaurants are close by (one in the Ram's Hill golf club) and Borrego Springs' town centre is a short distance by car. Cynthia was a helpful caring host and a joy to meet. We definitely plan to return! It is a great hiking area with many trails within the park and entrances to the Pacific Crest Trail nearby."
