**ROMANTIC RETREAT EXPANSIVE VIEWS AT RAMS HILL-COMPETITIVE RATES!!!

Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Best view of the Borrego Valley in all of Rams Hill (formerly Montesoro). The setting is romantic, inspired, open, and private. Enjoy the sweeping, panoramic view of Indian Head and the Anza-Borrego National Park from the master bed, living room, and patio. Listen to the soothing sounds of the desert and light a fire in our firepit on patio. See yourself totally RELAXING and enjoying mother nature in every direction. Rams Hill in Borrego Springs is San Diego's Best Kept Secret, only 90 minutes away from San Diego lies a hidden jewel that we have discovered and hope you will too! This is the most PEACEFUL place on the face of the earth. Borrego Springs was recently awarded the prestigious International Dark Sky Community Certification and rated by USA Today as the top 10 stargazing locations in the nation. More photo's and You Tube video of our home/information please go to our Facebook Page (see below). The Tom Fazio designed golf course is currently being renovated with planned re-opening in November 2014. Our view is overlooking the lake and fairway of the 4th hole of the golf course. When the golf course is open, golfers tee off on the other side of the lake from us, so you get to watch them as they tee off.

Upgraded, contemporary furnishings with Zen inspired luxurious feel.Take full advantage of all the activities available such as golf, swimming, tennis, hiking, biking, trail running, and more. Or, simply enjoy the quiet, peaceful, rejuvenating setting with expansive views while you relax on the patio or by the two pools. Some of the homes in the town of Borrego on VRBO don't offer a pool or jacuzzi and we wouldn't want to rent a house in the desert without a pool. We have two huge pools, a recreational and a lap pool which is heated all year, and a short walk from our house. Also our front, back and side patio's are secure if you bring your fury friend.

Take an early morning walk or bike around the golf cart path to catch the spectacular sunrise views. Catch the sunset while relaxing from the back patio over looking the golf course and the Borrego Valley.

As you enter the living room you are surrounded by windows bringing the sense of the space, sunlight and quiet into the home. This beautiful two-bedroom, two-bath, 1400 square foot, contemporary home has new tile throughout. The master bedroom has its own sliding door to the patio facing the expansive views. Sleep restfully in our comfy bed with 550 thread count sheets. Wake in the morning to the morning light on the mountain view. The master bath is spacious with walk in closet and large oval deep tub for two. Every room has direct access to the outside. Absolutely breathtaking and light and bright!

The guest bedroom is separate and private. The décor is warm and inviting, with a window facing the eastern sunrise view, The back patio has a fun seating area and sliding glass doors face the interior courtyard.

Each day provides a new opportunity to enjoy the many outdoor activities available in Borrego Springs. Once the largest Thompson Grape growing region in the state, Borrego Springs area is now a veritable playground for those that like to enjoy nature and the Anza-Borrego State Park, play golf , several green grass courses in town, or lounge about the two pools at our Santa Fe swim complex at Rams Hill. The lap pool is heated year round.

The Tom Fazio golf course is being renovated with planned re-opening November 2014. You can walk the 18 hole cart path now. There are 3 other public golf courses in town to play.

Borrego Springs is the perfect place for any Triathletes looking to train for an Ironman triathlon. Borrego Springs offer endless bicycle rides free of cars and no stoplights at all, the numerous running trails and a uncrowded lap pool. Borrego Springs has all the elements of the Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii-The heat of the desert, great cycling, endless running roads and trails, the lap pool and the mental toughness needed on the long stretches of Queen K Highway in Kona can be duplicated here in Borrego. The ultimate training ground for any short or long distance Ironman Triathlete.

Catch a Big Horn Sheep or two in the Palm Canyon Trails or visit the wonderful 129 metal sculptures in the Galleta Meadows situated throughout the Borrego Valley.

Todd and I have been together for twenty one years. We live at the beach in Cardiff By The Sea.

Trish Haskell purchased this house in 2005

Rams Hill in Borrego is a beautiful, peaceful and private desert community and offers one so much solitude. There are 3600 acres to roam on. The views are the best in the Borrego Valley since we sit up high. The sunrise in the mornings are the best at Rams Hill and was recently voted one the best places to watch the Sunrise by Sunset Magazine. Borrego is now one of the top places in the Nation according to USA Today to stargaze. The stars at night are better than any night sky that we have ever seen. Borrego was recently named an International Dark Sky Community, there are no stoplights in Borrego, no traffic, no pollution, no noise, no big box stores or chains. Our home at Rams Hill is surrounded by 650,000 acres of state park and will never get over developed and turn into a concrete jungle like Palm Springs. This is the real desert! It's not about what's here, it's about what's not here!!!!!!!

The views from the living room and master bedroom are some of the best on the Rams Hill property. The view is open and inspiring. The Santa Rosa Mountains are seen from every window in the living room. Indian Head can be seen from the master bed. BBQ's, sitting around the firepit, listening to the birds, watching the spectacular sunrise and sunsets are just a few things that we enjoy. The privacy, the peace and quiet, the night sky are some of the unique benefits of staying at our home. Nature is everywhere on this property from the owls to the jack rabbits, to the coyotes, to the selection of birds-a bird watchers paradise. It is never crowded ever here and offers one so much peace and solitude. AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! You will not be disappointed in this private retreat and jem of a place to relax. Borrego Springs was recently awarded the prestigious International Dark Sky Community Certification and has long been a haven for stargazers, both professional and amateur. Rated by USA Today as one of the top 10 stargazing locations in the nation. Everytime we walk out our door at night we can't help but look up at the night sky. We are always in awe of the darkness and these magnificent stars above, we feel so lucky to be blessed with the most amazing place to stargaze. There aren't many places like this left in Southern California. Not everyone will get it and we hope you will be one of the lucky ones to visit one of the best kept secrets close to millions of people in San Diego.

THE BEST VRBO RENTAL WE HAVE HAD SO FAR...

  • 5 of 5
This place was simply perfect for me and my hubby. Elegant décor, nice flow between rooms, everything is in its place, whatever you need is available. We enjoyed our evening view of the stars in the patio, our morning coffee and conversations amidst the magnificent view of the mountains. We decided that as much possible, we will plan to stay here again. Trish was extremely helpful and ensured that we have the info for their place and the town.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Trish and Todd’s lovely home in beautiful Rams Hill. Each morning we sipped our coffee on the patio that overlooked the nearby pond with birds coming and going. And beyond the pond were mountains reflecting the light of the rising morning sun. Each evening we were awed by the amazing expanse of stars in the night sky.
The entire home is beautifully decorated. The kitchen provided everything we needed to prepare our dinners, the living room was a lovely place to relax, and the master bedroom-bathroom suite was luxurious.
Trish and Todd were immensely helpful. It was a pleasure working with them with regard to the details of our stay.

Owner's Response: Donna, thank you again for staying with us and writing such a great review. We both have outside jobs besides our home in Borrego and we try really hard to make sure we respond in a timely manner to each guest requests. We are so glad you enjoyed staying at our property and appreciated all that wonderful things about staying at Rams Hill and Borrego that we enjoy as well. We always tell people it's not about what's here, it's about what's not here in little Borrego and we know you got it!!! Please come back for another visit when you need some alone time in nature. Thank you again!
Todd and Trish

A GREAT SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
Situated on the fourth hole of a championship golf course (that happily is scheduled to be reopened before the end of the year), this rental offers lots of natural light, an open and well laid out floor plan, and a choice of private outside areas. We were delighted at how quickly we felt completely at home! The location is ideal for anyone who enjoys outdoor activities, with a great tennis court/pool/hot tub area, and many opportunities for walking and cycling right in the neighborhood. We enjoyed our two months so much that we have already booked for next year!

A WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
The trip to Anza Borrego was wonderful, in no small part due to a wonderful stay at this home. It was so peaceful and beautiful. So much attention to detail, everything any one of us needed was already there in the house. Even the instructions for checking in and out were clear, and the keys easy to find.

We're so thankful that you decided to open your home. We hope to be able to stay there whenever we get the chance to visit the area again.

DESERT REFUGE

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 had a lovely experience in Borrego Springs. The house is beautiful, quiet and well-appointed. The walk to the Palm Canyon oasis was our goal, the bonus was the stay at the house. The owner was very helpful with our various questions.
