Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description

What’s So Special about Borrego Springs:

Discover Borrego Springs, it’s a strange desert landscape just south of Palm Springs. It is the peace and quiet and the dramatic landscapes that make this place a winter get-away from the cold of the North. Because of the surroundings, Borrego is a special kind of paradise. The desert is like a newborn child, it is beautiful, wondrous, strange and new. What you will see are many thousands of years of evolution in botany as well as geography.

In driving distance, Borrego is two hours or less from any place in San Diego County. In reality, Borrego is a world away -- a world away from traffic, from chain stores, from commotion, from crowds, from deadlines, from the predictable, from the mundane!

About Borrego Springs….A land for all seasons. Borrego is a year around destination that offers expansive desert vistas from a Village without stop lights surrounded by the state’s largest state park framed by stark ancient cliffs, miles of emptiness that are, in fact, teeming with wildlife; endlessly dramatic desert skies that, at night, offer a darkness that defies description; a peace and quiet that cannot be understood without firsthand experience.

Borrego offers you as little or as much to do as you're willing to contemplate. Soaking up the magnificent scenery in an admirable full time occupation and can be accomplished on foot, by car, or horseback, in an off-road vehicle tour or from the air. If you are game for more, there is tennis, golf, shopping, music, galleries, hiking, cycling, photography, bird watching, sunning, swimming; star gazing, and even time travel when you include a visit to the sculptures of Ricardo Breceda at Galleta Meadows. Start your visit of the Sky Art Walk right from the our house. The first sculpture you will stop at is marked FT-15 “Aiolornis with Prey” aka the WindgodBird. (Visit www.galletameadows.com for photos and videos). However you choose to experience Borrego we know for certain you will be amazed, astounded and inextricably altered. We also know that while a three night stay is a good beginning, this adventure will last a lifetime -- and you will be back!

Our cancellation policy is moderate and we will do our best to rebook your stay, if it becomes necessary.

Beautiful new home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a quiet Christmas getaway in this lovely home in Borrego Springs. The views from this home are phenomenal - 360 degrees of mountains. We woke to the amazing colors at sunrise seen from the bedroom. The home is spacious and comfortable.

Thank you, Richard, for sharing your home and for the simple renting process.

I could live here!

  • 5 of 5
We have rented from the owner before and it has been a pleasure. Very nice newer home in a good area with lots of desert hiking/biking adventures right in front of you. The owner also realizes that us older folks like to hang out outside and both of his rental homes are set up with outside areas for eating and BBQ!
Will be back soon!

Our stay

  • 4 of 5
We love this place. Very well maintained. The rooms were all very nice and clean. The place was just right for our visit.Easy access to the main road. Great views of the surrounding area with some amazing sunsets and sunrises. Nice location as it was easy to get to Anza Borrego State Park and into town. We did have some issues with the wifi, but we managed to work around that problem. Will definitely be back next time were in town.

Owner's Response: Glad to hear your stay and our location was outstanding. As for the wifi issue, an IP conflict can be addressed by either rebooting the router or phone or computer equipment. That was resolved with a phone call. Thanks for the review and your comments. Rich

A Great Way to Start the New Year

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at the lovely Casa in Borrego Springs this New Year. We couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The home is well appointed with plenty of room for everyone (and some to spare since there were only 3 of us). We had everything we needed to cook meals and BBQ while we were there.
Located about 5 miles south of the circle (and the center of town), we loved the quiet as well as the easy access to restaurants. And the night sky.......If you have not stayed in Borrego Springs before, you are in for a treat. It is one of those dark sky places where you can still see the milkyway and almost feel like you can touch it (when there is no moon).
We are already planning our next stay at the Casa.

Owner's Response: So glad you were able to stay at our desert coyote house. For several years this house was called the WindgodBird after the bird sculpture located east of the house. Changed the name this season to "Desert Coyote", you just might see a few on your next trip. Until next time. Thanks, Rich

Great time had by all!

  • 5 of 5
What a lot of fun we had this weekend in Borrego! The house was perfect! Could not have asked for better. We spent alot of time off roading and sightseeing but at night we played games and just had family time together. I could have stayed much longer. Will definitely be returning, maybe a fun retreat for a group of women? or with my sibs! Thank you so much for making this home available and affordable! Booking was easy, everything was very clean, all of our needs were met. Beautiful location! Highly recommend!

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5
For the last five or six years my wife and I have spent most of our vacations at vacation rentals in Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Montana, New Mexico, and California so we have a wide range of experience with different accommodations. That said, the fact that this was our third stay at this home shows how fantastic we feel it is there. Very comfortable, wonderful view from the living room, fast wifi, well equipped, and quiet. I have mobility issues and the house, kitchen, bath and shower are very easy. I am already planning my next trip back.
