Overview

Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description

Private, Elegant, Large Spanish 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, 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!

About Peter Cochran

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our home Guest-book:



Yo, Cochran's,



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

Five Stars

  • 5 of 5

A very spacious home situated with unparalleled views of the Santa Rosa mountains and Borrego Badlands. Very peaceful location while allowing access to the amenities of Rams Hill (swimming and golf).

Beautiful grounds and a shaded walkway with a well placed table for breakfast or dinner to the sounds of the birds. Most of all it is a very comfortable house to live in. The owners are very responsive.

The Good Life

  • 5 of 5

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.

Thanksgiving Weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

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!
