A very unique in property in Borrego Spring's private and gated exclusive community of Rams Hill. At 850 feet above the desert floor, this home is situated for and AMAZING 360 degree views of the Anza Borrego desert mountains and Badlands. It is very nicely landscaped on nearly 1/2 acre estate. Folks that have stayed here comment 'the posted pictures don't do the property justice'. That's just fine with us, but, you will not find another like this in Borrego. 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 or spa 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!
Our Family of 4 lives in Laguna Beach. We leave these pets in the desert for you folks to enjoy. This property has been in our family for years, our boys are getting older and busier so we have decided to share. We are an avid outdoor family. We have hiked, biked, run, walked, golfed, off-roaded and jeeped many of the beautiful areas in this desert. Just ask, and we will likely be able to point you in the right direction.
Peter Cochran purchased this house in 2007
Borrego Springs and Anza Borrego is the perfect place to vacation 9 months of the year. Is is an outdoorsman's Disneyland of attractions. Now with the Fazio 18 hole course and clubhouse available to the public, there is not better desert vacation at this specific location. Come enjoy one time, and you will feel the special energy of this area. When you are exhausted from the outdoors, come back to this beautiful home and very private property and relax in style. This is property is really a lifetime treat!!
This home is in the Rams Hill Community. By far, the newest and nicest in Borrego Springs and Anza Borrego State Park, largest state park in the USA. Desert beauty, mountain ruggedness, Pacific Crest trail, Badlands State park, Salton Sea. Pick your adventure then come back to this wonderful huge home with the beautiful view on top of Rams Hill.
From our home Guest-book:
This was our "family of friends" annual get-together. It could not have turned out any better. The home is perfectly set up for 3 couples, and thanks for seeing it it that it's completely outfitted...for everything.
We'll be back! Tony & Jo & friends
The home is beautiful and spacious as are the grounds and views. My only suggestion would be that certain items should be listed as NOT PROVIDED: wash cloths, bath mats, kitchen towels (only paper), and kleenex. Also the dish soap container was almost empty.
The single bed listed in the master bedroom is really a blow-up mattress. The "pullout couch" in one of the other bedrooms is not a pullout, just a couch.
We only used the jacuzzi one time and enjoyed it even though the temp rose to only 95.
The beds are very comfortable; the bathrooms are spacious; the dining areas are great: kitchen, diningroom and outdoors! Lots and lots of space. Would return again with family.
Our stay in Boreego Springs was amazing! The home was so much more than I could have dreamed. The area breathtaking. Totally LOVED it! Everything needed was supplied and then some! Highly recommend this home and location.
We really enjoyed our time at this rental property. The pictures on the web are good, but in reality, it is even more beautiful! The house was clean, and the garden well manicured. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes pots and pans of every size, spices, and condiments in the fridge, and plenty of counter space to work on to prepare Thanksgiving Dinner. The home is very roomy, all the bedrooms were large, and having 3.5 bathrooms was a plus too. We had lots of fun playing bocce ball, ping-pong, tennis and golf, and water basketball in the pool. Even playing the piano was a treat. Relaxing in the hot tub was a big deal too. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the patio at night, and just star-gazing. So Peaceful! This was a wonderful mini-vacation for us, and daughter, son-in-law, and 6 yr. old granddaughter. There was something fun for everyone! We would definitely recommend this rental property. Thanks Peter for sharing your lovely home.
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.
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.
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!!
