About Mark and Susan

Our family lives rurally about 1 hour from Toronto, Canada. We love travelling and discovered the unique beautiful area of Borrego Springs while vacationing in Southern California.

Mark and Susan purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Mark and Susan chose Borrego Springs

Rams Hill and the Borrego Springs area are a perfect destination for so many reasons. Obviously, we love to escape the cold Canadian winters! We never imagined how spectacular the desert would be - it is just so different from where we live in Canada. Our northern home is surrounded by lush green woods in the summer and buried in snow in the winter. To arrive in Borrego Springs with it's spectacular Santa Rosa mountains, desert cacti and flowers and wonderful soothing warmth is the ultimate escape.

What makes this townhome unique

Borrego Springs and the Rams Hill community provide the perfect mixture of relaxation and activity. You can experience total relaxation, enjoying luxurious accommodations within spectacular natural surroundings. Or you can choose from an unlimited number of activities. Within a 5 minute walk, you can golf, play tennis, or eat in the great clubhouse restaurant Some of our favorite things to do include hiking in the massive Anza Borrego Park, viewing the unbelievable metal artwork throughout the community of Borrego Springs, driving to Palm Springs for shopping or a night out, renting dune buggies, and of course, star-gazing in the dark desert nights.

Outstanding location, Beautiful Casita,

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well appointed. TV, sound system, internet, all worked perfectly. It felt very welcoming and warm. Golf, hiking, tennis, and restaurants were all close by. The fact that it was a gated community offered a quiet surrounding with lots of walking paths through the desert and beautiful golf course. Mark and Susan responded quickly to every question and inquirie, which made the whole process easy and smooth. I would most highly recommend this property and location to family and friends.

Comfortable Casita in Borrgo Springs, CA

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time renting Mark and Susan's comfortable casita in Borrego Springs, CA. My husband and I go to Borrego Springs in the middle of the Anza Borrego State Park to get away from the hoards of people and traffic in the LA Metropolitan area where we generally live. We are pretty demanding - a clean, comfortable, quiet, peaceful, and safe place is most important to us. Mark and Susan's gem of a place in the desert fits all those qualities and more. It is located far enough out of the town of Borrego Springs to be peaceful and quiet, but close enough - within 10 minutes - to afford any of the conveniences of the town. We love to BBQ and there is a good propane BBQ to fulfill those needs or within a 15 minute comfortable walk to the luxurious Clubhouse of the Ram's Hill golf course for great food and drinks (except during a few summer months when it is closed for the season). I love to swim and hike for exercise and the pool is a block from the casita (which is like a townhouse) and I can hike on nearby roads, abundant paths, or off-path in the desert. One of my favorite things is sitting on the patio and watching the hummingbirds sample necter from the abundant flowers blooming in the surrounding vegetation - sipping my morning coffee or my evening wine watching the moon rise over the desert. Mark and Susan are easy to communicate with and have made their place very comfortable for a much-needed recharge.

Peaceful getaway in a delightful Desert Casita !

  • 5 of 5

We have no hesitation in recommending this Casita to anyone looking at VRBO who is interested in spending time at Rams Hill, or just near the town of Borrego Springs in the Anza Borrego. The Casita is as advertised , fully equipped with everything you could possibly want or need and is well maintained and very clean. The owners respond as quickly as possible (they live 3 time changes away) and are willing to address issues should they arise. We were able to take advantage of all of the activities one can experience in the desert and at the same time, enjoy our down time inside the gated community. The pool and the small gym were an added bonus and most of the time, we were alone when using them. The dining room at the Rams Hill golf course is a great place to eat should you decide to wander across the road and down a bit, to enjoy their delicious food. All in all, I have no problem giving the Casita a 5/5.

Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a month-long golf vacation during the month of February, 2016. The kitchen was well-equipped making it easy to make our own meals. In information book, video and pamphlets about the Borrego Springs area were excellent. The beds were extremely comfortable. The toll-free telephone was perfect as cell service in the area is unreliable although the internet worked very well. The owner's description of their casita is very accurate. I would certainly recommend this casita to anyone who wants to spend time in the Borrego Springs area.

Beautiful Borrego Springs

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of November at this great Casita in Borrego Springs. The weather was consistently beautiful... warm during the day and cool at night. Perfect for hiking, biking and golf. Favorite hikes were Palm Canyon, the Slot, and Font's Point. We took some day trips- Joshua Tree NP, Palomar Observatory, and visited Julian several times, as well as a weekend in San Diego.

It was wonderful to have this clean, comfortable Casita to come back to. The kitchen is very well-equipped with even a turkey roaster for Thanksgiving! I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for peace and quiet in a beautiful part of the country.
