ATTENTION GOLFERS The Tom Fazio designed golf course is open to the public for play on November 7, 2015 to fantastic reviews and recently rated the #1 golf course in the US by Golf Digest. Our view is overlooking the lake and fairway of the 4th hole of the golf course. When the golf course is open, golfers tee off on the other side of the lake from us, so you get to watch them as they tee off. The Rams Hill Clubhouse and Restaurant is fully functional and has a wonderful outside patio with outstanding views. Learn more at Ramshillgolf.com. There are three other golf courses to play on in Borrego but Rams Hill is superior to all of them.
Upgraded, contemporary furnishings with Zen inspired luxurious feel.Take full advantage of all the activities available such as golf, swimming, tennis, hiking, biking, trail running, and more. Or, simply enjoy the quiet, peaceful, rejuvenating setting with expansive views while you relax on the patio or by the two pools. Some of the homes in the town of Borrego on VRBO don't offer a pool or jacuzzi and we wouldn't want to rent a house in the desert without a pool. We have two huge pools, a recreational and a lap pool which is heated all year, and a short walk from our house. We feel totally safe and secure at Rams Hill since we have a guard gate to enter the Rams Hill property.
Take an early morning to catch the spectacular sunrise views. Catch the sunset while relaxing from the back patio over looking the golf course and the Borrego Valley.
As you enter the living room you are surrounded by windows bringing the sense of the space, sunlight and quiet into the home. This beautiful two-bedroom, two-bath, 1400 square foot, contemporary home has new tile throughout. The master bedroom has its own sliding door to the patio facing the expansive views. Sleep restfully in our comfy bed with 550 thread count sheets. Wake in the morning to the morning light on the mountain view. The master bath is spacious with walk in closet and large oval deep tub for two. Every room has direct access to the outside. Absolutely breathtaking and light and bright!
The guest bedroom is separate and private. The décor is warm and inviting, with a window facing the eastern sunrise view, The back patio has a fun seating area and sliding glass doors face the interior courtyard.
Each day provides a new opportunity to enjoy the many outdoor activities available in Borrego Springs. Once the largest Thompson Grape growing region in the state, Borrego Springs area is now a veritable playground for those that like to enjoy nature and the Anza-Borrego State Park, play golf , several green grass courses in town, or lounge about the two pools at our Santa Fe swim complex at Rams Hill. The lap pool is heated year round.
Borrego Springs is the perfect place for bike riding since there are so few cars on the road and No stoplights. A perfect place to train for a triathlon. We also have three brand new Pickleball tennis courts and a new resurface Tennis Court in the Santa Fe Swim and Tennis Complex for you to use during your stay.
Catch a Big Horn Sheep or two in the Palm Canyon Trails or visit the wonderful 129 metal sculptures in the Galleta Meadows situated throughout the Borrego Valley. The dog park is coming back soon we heard. We have a Dog Park is coming back soon. More Photo's, video and information on our Facebook Page Todd and Trish Haskell Borrego Vacation Rental (see below).

About the owner: Todd and I have been together for twenty one years. We live at the beach in Cardiff By The Sea. We run, hike, bike all through lovely Borrego. We also swim laps, play tennis, golf and now learning pickleball. And sometimes we just hang out and enjoy the sound of the birds and peace and quiet at our home.
Why the Owner Chose Borrego Springs, CA, USA:
Rams Hill in Borrego is a beautiful, peaceful and private desert community and offers one so much solitude. There are 3600 acres to roam on. The views are the best in the Borrego Valley since we sit up high. The sunrise in the mornings are the best at Rams Hill and was recently voted one the best places to watch the Sunrise by Sunset Magazine. Borrego is now one of the top places in the Nation according to USA Today to stargaze. The stars at night are better than any night sky that we have ever seen. Borrego was recently named an International Dark Sky Community, there are no stoplights in Borrego, no traffic, no pollution, no noise, no big box stores or chains. Our home at Rams Hill is surrounded by 650,000 acres of state park and will never get over developed and turn into a concrete jungle like Palm Springs. This is the real desert! It's not about what's here, it's about what's not here!!!!!!!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views from the living room and master bedroom are some of the best on the Rams Hill property. The view is open and inspiring. The Santa Rosa Mountains are seen from every window in the living room. Indian Head can be seen from the master bed. BBQ's, sitting around the firepit, listening to the birds, watching the spectacular sunrise and sunsets are just a few things that we enjoy. The privacy, the peace and quiet, the night sky are some of the unique benefits of staying at our home. Nature is everywhere on this property from the owls to the jack rabbits, to the coyotes, to the selection of birds-a bird watchers paradise. It is never crowded ever here and offers one so much peace and solitude. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed in this private retreat and jem of a place to relax. Borrego Springs was recently awarded the prestigious International Dark Sky Community Certification and has long been a haven for stargazers, both professional and amateur. Rated by USA Today as one of the top 10 stargazing locations in the nation. Everytime we walk out our door at night we can't help but look up at the night sky. We are always in awe of the darkness and these magnificent stars above, we feel so lucky to be blessed with the most amazing place to stargaze. There aren't many places like this left in Southern California. Not everyone will get it and we hope you will be one of the lucky ones to visit one of the best kept secrets close to millions of people in San Diego.
