Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Private, Elegant Spanish style ranch home, Pool, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths

A very unique in property in Borrego Spring's private and gated exclusive community of Rams Hill. At 850 feet above the desert floor, AMAZING 360 degree views of the Anza Borrego desert mountains and Badlands from this very private and secluded Spanish Ranch style home on nearly 1/2 acre estate. You will not find another like this in Borrego. We have many returning guests. Truly, a star gazers paradise with large unobstructed views from every direction. One of the most private homes in the area. Inside the home there is over 3000 square feet of living space, 3 large Bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, an outdoor shower off the master suite, a wonderfully large Master bath/dressing area with walk in closets and step in soaking tub. The Kitchen area is one of the centerpieces of this home. Perfect for entertaining! Well laid out wet island, large cooking area, bar area, breakfast nook. Great for cooking, entertaining or just hanging out. The living area has a baby grand piano for guests use, large vaulted ceilings, huge seating area and a beautiful natural stone hearth fireplace to enjoy on cool desert nights.

Step outside to the back of the home under the protected canopy and take in the best views of the jewel of California Deserts, Day or Night. Beautiful 360 degrees of blue skies, mountains and deserts.

Enjoy the large 45' pool. Just lounge in the pool while taking in the views. The pool and hot tub are available heated at an additional cost (propane is very expensive here) There is something and somewhere on this property for everyone to enjoy, together or find your own space.

The Country Club now open, Golf will be available in November 2014 to our guests (a separate fee) and our guests can enjoy the 2 best restaurants in Borrego, Rams Hill and Caza Del Zorro next door.

We hope to cater to everyone. We can accommodate Hikers and adventurers, those looking to enjoy the beautiful desert sun, cyclists, off road jeepers, folks looking to just get away from the cold. Please note, again, the pool and hot tub may be heated for an extra fee.

Update: Guests now have access to the newly opened and renovated Rams Hill Clubhouse, for wonderful dinners both inside and outside with the best views of any restaurant in Borrego Springs. Guest may also enjoy Golf on the newly opened (November 2014) award winning Tom Fazio golf course.

Guests can also now enjoy the restaurant/bar at the Rams Hill Country Club and also La Casa Del Zorro Resort next door. This newly renovated 4 star resort is the best in Borrego, by far!

Borrego Springs / Rams Hill

  • 4 of 5
A beautiful house in the Rams Hill development in Borrego Springs was the setting for a gathering of old friends who like to hike, play golf, play board games, and laugh loads. There were 6 of us who stayed 3 nights. Although we slept comfortably and there were 4 bathrooms, there were only 3 bedrooms, and that should have been disclosed more prominently in the listing. There was a nice pool, but, unfortunately, it was not heated. The kitchen was nice sized and more than adequate for our needs. It worked out fine and we had a great time. The house was clean and well-maintained. No hesitation in recommending it.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5
We don't normally give a 5-star review on anything, as it seems less than genuine but in this case, it's accurate. Borrego is one of our favorite getaways and we've scoured the entire community for the best rental places. This is it. Period. We will never book another place to stay in Borrego, unless forced to.

Pete and family keep this house in impeccable shape. Unlike most of the other places we've experienced, the house is as described. The grounds are well maintained, the pool is clean and functional, the interior is tastefully decorated and everything works. The cable, the Wi-Fi, the AC, all of it works! Trust me, that's a rarity in Borrego rentals.

If you are looking to rent a house in Borrego, rent this place without a second thought. The view is epic, the location is ideal, and the gated community is a nice comfort to have for security. Long walks, hiking, biking, swimming, etc. this place has it all. We could not give a more positive review for Pete's place.

Highly, highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. We love this property and work very hard to ensure this unique home is a relaxing and comfortable sanctuary for ourselves and our guests in such a cool and wildly open desert/mountain environment. Borrego is uniquely beautiful and remote, which comes with benefits and challenges to owing a vacation home here. I think we have found the formula! Robert, we hope you and your family will come back soon!

IDEAL ACCOMODATION!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I don't have a single suggestion to offer to make an experience in Borrego Springs any better than what we have experienced being in this house. We plan to come back regularly , using this as our retreat from the hustle and bustle of San Diego!!
The owner was very responsive and very nice. The house is very clean( I am not the easiest to please on that one), it has a very nice open floor plan with a beautiful yard and pool. The view is fabulous. Just fabulous. There is tremendous privacy.So peaceful. The temperature is 107 degrees but with the pool( that remains an ideal 85 degrees), and with the overhang in the patio, the temperature has been absolutely wonderful.
My only recommendation is to respect it as if it was your own! It is very generous of the owners to offer something so nice !!!
A very big thank you, Peter!!

True Desert Bliss - Did Not Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5
This home is perfect for enjoying with friends (which we did) or a romantic getaway. Although we didn't have kids, they would have enjoyed the pool and the outdoors very much.

The house is inviting, well-kept, clean on the inside and well-manicured on the outside. We had all the tools we needed. They just installed a new oven as well and it's nice to know the owners take such good care of their home. We really enjoyed the private, yet open feel the house has.

The house can comfortably fit 8 yet it's warm and inviting enough for just 2.

As far as things to do, there was something for everyone in our group.

For the adventure seeker, we went on a 6 mile hike through Hellhole Canyon.

For the athletes, the surroundings are fantastic for cycling and running and the golf course is almost ready. Best part is that it's a short walk away! The pool is perfect for lap swims too.

For those who want to relax, we were able to unwind by just lounging by the pool. It's tranquil and the views are incredible from the backyard at both dusk and dawn!! There are also some great outdoor spots where you can enjoy some shade.

We also went to the Borrego Springs Spa for a nice relaxing treat, but next time we stay at this house, we may hire someone to give us massages poolside, because there's really no reason to leave the premise!

Dining - I would recommend using the outdoor grill and eating poolside! We had a great time having meals in different areas of the house and enjoyed the spectacular views from all angles!

Don't forget to look up after the sunsets. The star gazing from there is unlike anything you've ever seen!

I would also suggest the Rams Hill Hill Country Club restaurant which is a two minute drive from the house. There is great service, excellent food (hear the pizza is divine) and a really nice wine list. There was also live music and a private room for special occasions which we plan to use next time we are back.

The restaurant at Casa del Zorro is also really good if you want some variety.

Overall, I can't wait to go back as it was a relaxing and fun time! There is something for everyone at this magical oasis.

Can't beat the views

Can't beat the views
  • 3 of 5
My husband and I were married at St. Richards 30 years ago. We rented this home and invited friends and family who were with us for our wedding. Unfortunately the home did not live up to expectations. On the surface things were clean enough, but I did not feel comfortable putting anything in the kitchen cabinets or refrigerator. The food left by others was not appealing. The kitchen was advertised as a gourmet kitchen yet the oven didn't work and I could get only two burners to work. There was one large pot and two small frying pans so not a lot to work with for a large party. The grill outside needed major cleaning before we could use it. The ants were a big problem both inside the kitchen and out at the BBQ...The blinds on the windows did not work which is important in Borrego because you need to keep the sun out at times. The shower in the master bath had no pressure and it took ten minutes for the water to warm up. I tried the tub but could not get the water to drain. All that said, we had a wonderful group of people who were able to relax and enjoy even though things weren't perfect. I would look for a different home to rent in Borrego. The views really were gorgeous though...

Owner's Response: We really do appreciate feedback from our guests. Unfortunately, to our surprise, this review was the first we heard that there was any issues whatsoever at the home during this guest's stay. I want to respond directly, as I feel that if I was looking for a home to rent, I'd want some explanation. So, upon inspection after this guests check out, funny enough, we did find the master bath shower head dial was turned down, likely during cleaning, which should easily have been resolved, its not complicated. As well, last year, we installed an inline pump for instant hot water in every room of the house, (its a large home)when the guest reads the detailed guest instructions and turns it on. Its very easy. Ants had never been an issue inside or outside, but it is possible that the grill was not cleaned by the last guest and our housekeepers did not lift the lid? We have a handyman that would have responded immediately. We did find a broken shade in the kitchen that was broken during this guests stay, as they obviously did not know how to operate it, as well, there are cabinets full of cookware throughout the kitchen and bar area. None of which are really hidden. Amazing. The oven was being replaced during their stay and they had been advised of this with an option for their money back if it was going to be an issue. So, prior to their stay, we purchased an extra large toaster oven. (The new double stainless Maytag has been installed as well, all burners on our cooktop are in great condition)
So, it is really unfortunate that we had this review, and I am still puzzled, but I hope this does not deter one person from a stay in a fantastic, well taken care of home in an extraordinary location. That would be the unfortunate part.
We, as well as our team of housekeepers, landscapers, pool crew and occasional handyman work very hard to make this home as comfortable as possible for our guests, as well as our own family. We think, and so do our guests in this review section, that we have done a more than pretty good job of taking care of folks over the past 1.5 years. We are hyper about responding to guests inquiries and needs while during their stay. We have many return guests from many different countries, and have made many friends while sharing our home, and we hope to make many more.
Sincerely,
Peter Cochran and Janeen Cochran

Relaxing Feel

  • 5 of 5
The home has a wonderful feel. It was warm and cozy. We celebrated my parents 50th anniversary in Borrego Springs and enjoyed talking around the fire. The back yard is well manicured and inviting. We would definitely recommend this home for anyone who is looking to relax and enjoy all Borrego Springs has to offer. The photos do not do the interior justice. We were happy with all aspects of the home.
