Given the wonderful winter climate in Borrego it is mostly for ambiance. Living room, dining room, kitchen, bathrooms, hallway floors have ceramic tile floors. The bedrooms are carpeted. Kitchen is large and is equipped with new appliances, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker and tableware for six people.

For your convenience there is a washer and dryer as well. There is ample parking on the property for your vehicles. Other than the garage, the shaded carport offers protection from the sun.

At the back of the property is a patio with a table, four chairs and a bench. You could enjoy the the amazing Borrego night sky, have your breakfast or just relax and feel the breath of the desert.

Borrego Springs is surrounded by the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, the largest State Park in the contiguous U.S. The property is minutes from world class, unforgettable desert hiking trails. You can choose to go for a casual stroll or a more strenuous climb. Other than world-class hiking, the park provides mountain & road biking, off-road motoring, golf, and amazing star-gazing. The State Park has lecture series and hikes addressing wildlife, star-gazing, local geology, and paleontology. Easy drive / hikes to ancient rock art and indigenous dwellings.

Borrego Springs has an active artists community. Art walks / openings are held regularly in-season, lots of galleries to drop in on. Local art scene includes a wonderful series of large metal sculptures of prehistoric animal life.

Within a reasonable driving distance you could visit Julian, an old gold mining town nowadays famous for its apple pies. Cleveland National Forest, the Salton Sea area are nearby. Or you could hop over to Joshua Tree National Park. Of course San Diego is within reach with all its attractions as well.

Borrego Valley Airport is located approximately 5.5 miles from the property. It has a pilot-activated, lighted, 5000-foot runway, fueling and space for overnight and longer stays. It is student pilot-friendly and has late-model rental cars available, a restaurant and information on numerous other activities. It also offers the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Sky Trail that gives pilots and their passengers a chance to enjoy natural and historic features of the park, many of which can only be viewed from the air. The Borrego Valley Airport has 99% clear skies.

About Albert Ennedy

I am a retired person in my mid fifties, married to my lovely wife, Brigitta (in the picture) for over 25 years. We have a daughter, Ashley, and a son, Edward, both of whom are in medical school. (Who said it gets easier as they grow up?)

We moved to Southern California from Canada thirteen years ago and love it. We visited the desert a couple of times with some prejudice, I might add, but the more we came the more we enjoyed it.

Outdoor activities, the serenity and beauty of the desert, the air and the sky are all wonderful here. I find it healing, very relaxing to spend time here. The desert air, the stars at night, the whole environment is magical. There are places to visit, sights to see, trails to discover. It's an experience you'll want to return to. I hope you'll enjoy it too.

Why Albert Ennedy chose Borrego Springs

My family and I just wanted to have a desert retreat, but still have the amenities and conveniences of a town setting. This house is well located and comfortable. The neighbors are friendly and quiet. I don't feel isolated from other people, all amenities are within a short distance, yet the desert is at our doorstep.

What makes this house unique

All the beauty, serenity, the air, the night sky, the magic of the desert is here for you. I like to sit out on the patio in the evening watch as the sun sets over the mountains, lean back in my chair and marvel at the stars, or the morning sky at sunrise. Sometimes a bird like the road runner in my picture visits. Or the coyotes 'singing' nearby after sunset. It is the perfect place if your are looking for a relaxing, quiet location. But it also offers a lot of opportunity for an active lifestyle in the surrounding areas. We are in the De Anza Borrego Desert with trails to discover, sights to see, and to play and enjoy the desert. (Ample of information on the internet on it.)

Thank you!

We really enjoyed the stay here in the fall of 2013.
Everything was as pictured and described.
The owner is very nice and helpful - make you feel more like a guest than a renter.
Comfortable, well maintained, clean house and it has all the amenities.
The neighbors are quiet and friendly.
This house offers everything that I need to enjoy my vacation in the desert. It is a good deal, I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Borrego Springs!
It was a perfect rental. I am looking forward to a return next year.

Family-friendly desert escape

  • 5 of 5
Clean, comfortable, well-maintained house was perfect for our family of four. Neighborhood is quiet and safe, and is great for bicycling--in fact, the whole town is. Even better if you have mountain bikes because there are seemingly endless dirt roads crisscrossing the desert and leading to all the unusual metal sculptures around town. (And it was nice to have a clean, spacious garage in which to stow the bikes between rides.) Enjoyed seeing all the jackrabbits in the backyard. Owners are friendly, organized, and thoughtful; the house is well-stocked with the basics you need for a short stay. And they seem to be constantly improving things. When I first made the reservation, they mentioned there was no coffee maker at the house. By the time I got there, they had added one!
