Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description
3 BR, 2 BA, w/pool, huge courtyard, views, mature landscaping, on 3/4 of an acre
This quaint and cozy mid-century modern home is a mere stroll (about a block and a half) from Anza Borrego State Park, yet still close to town. Located in the quiet Sun Gold neighborhood, the home is surrounded by huge fan palms, red ocotillos, palo verde, smoke trees, and a wide variety of cacti that bloom every spring. Enjoy golf, a scenic hike or a bike ride in the morning, a refreshing dip in the pool at midday, a nap, massage, or a stroll through art galleries in the afternoon, and a cocktail in the private courtyard under a star-filled night sky unspoiled by civilization.
This mid-century modern home was built in 1962 and is appointed with art and furnishings of the era, with a little bit of desert touches throughout. The huge private courtyard, pool and lounge chairs with matching umbrellas invite you to unplug and relax in your own mini-resort. Whether you choose to swim, sunbath, read, or simply catch an afternoon nap on an over-sized floatie, you will feel your troubles melt into the recesses of yesterday before you know it.
Our favorite local bar and restaurant, the Red Ocotillo and Crazy Coyote are within walking distance at the Palms at Indianhead Resort. Other classic bars, karaoke, and eateries are less than a ten-minute drive into town. The local grocery 'The Center Market' offers standard fare and a surprising variety of organic and local foods and herbs. The kitchen has most everything you'll need, and a gas BBQ grill is available on the patio.

About Michael Johnson
My wife, Cheryl, and I have been happily married for 24 years. We are blessed with two grown daughters, one who is still in college. They are the light of our lives. Our little family has been visiting the wonderful little town of Borrego Springs for nearly 15 years. It was love at first sight. The peace and quiet from the hubbub of daily civilization calms the nerves immediately upon arrival. The year-round sunshine warms the body and spirit and as an International Dark Sky Community, star gazing is unparalleled.
Michael Johnson purchased this house in 2011
Why Michael Johnson chose Borrego Springs
We fell in love with this place the moment we laid eyes on it. Its mix of mid-century modern charm and desert oasis appealed to our aesthetic and our fascination with the surrounding desert.
