The home was everything that was advertised. It was well kept and well laid out with really nice living space, kitchen and bedrooms furniture, wall hangings, air conditioning and well stocked with towels and kitchen dishes, pots/pans and utensils. The Palo Verde tree in the back yard was in full bloom which attracted lots of bird life and on the ground we saw rabbits and road runners. When we return to Borrego Springs next year the home will be at the top of our list.
Great time of the year to visit Borrego.
Awesome! Super clean and well furnished.
The property is well maintained and clean. Plenty of living space for a large family and dog, and has a well stocked kitchen. Five minutes away from Christmas Circle and walking distance to local trails and prehistoric sculptures.
Cant wait to return.
A piece of desert beauty!
My family and I loved our stay in this beautiful desert home. The home is specious, well appointed and beautifully decorated and remodeled. There was a lovely deck table on which we ate dinner and enjoyed sitting on the porch to watch the sun setting over the desert. One of my favorite vacation homes thus far!
Like so many others who have stayed here, thanks. As long as guests appreciate our Camp, we will continue to offer it. The Best Camp in Borrego, by far!
Great place for Desert stay
This is the 2nd time I've stayed here, once alone and this time with 3 others for a golf trip in March. Very large 3 bedroom home in Borrego Springs. The 3rd bedroom can easily sleep 4, in a King (I think ) and large double bed, with a queen bed in each of the other 2 bedrooms. Large fully equipped kitchen, large family room, eating area, sitting area with big TV and all sorts of t.v. channels, Netflix and a bunch of others. TV in Master bedroom as well. Laundry room. Lots of towels and sheets available. Walk in shower in large bathroom in Master, and tub/shower combo in other bathroom.. AC, and fire place if either are needed. Smaller charcoal barbque, table, chairs and umbrella in rear of unit as well. Well kept and maintained. Owner, Richard, is most accommodating. As mentioned it is a very large house, lots of room if you are with a group or family and need some "space" on your own there is lots of opportunity to find that in the house or outside, several sliding doors on both sides of the house as well as off the Master bedroom allows for easy entry/egress. This is my go to place in Borrego Springs.
Very Happy in Borrenga Springs
Our group very much enjoyed our stay at this property. Richard Heim is very easy to work with and our visit went smoothly. We were at little taken aback with the no paper in the toilet requirement. Some in the group wondered why there was not RV toilet paper, which might take the concern for the septic system away.
We all found the accommodations wonderful. We would stay here again and we all loved the area and found a lot to do. Thank you Richard and family for sharing your house.
All houses in Borrego are on individual septic systems and to properly maintain the tank and leech system, it is recommended to place waste paper in one of the bathroom containers. Thank you for helping to maintain our system.
This property was great for our family.
It was warm enough even in the cold and wind of Feb. The great room is a nice place to hang out and it is well appointed.
The Camp: rustic ranch type house, three bedrooms, greatroom, dining for 8-10 at the large hand made ranch table, fire pit,, corral, fireplace, open space, walking trails and much more. At The Camp it's like being camping on an open desert range without the tent. Sitting around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, looking for satellites, falling stars and counting the planets. The Milky Way, show it to the kids. Bring the pet too...everybody loves this place. See shooting stars, world famous sculptures and Palm Canyon. All just minutes away. Stay here for less and drive to the coast of San Diego. We also have 'The Penthouse' rental near Mission Bay in San Diego. Considering staying at both of our places. Other Activities: Wildlife Viewing, Rock Climbing, Basketball Court, Shopping, Boating, Biking Golf: Several golf courses to choose from
