Overview

Borrego Springs House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 8

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.

Oasis of peace and quiet in Anza Borrego desert

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to have stayed at the Desert Coyote last week. There were four adults in our party and we were very comfortable in this spacious, well-appointed home. Our only suggestion is to change the A-C/Furnace fan as it is quite loud Perhaps one that offered low/medium/high settings would cut down on the noise. But it was a beautiful stay and we all plan to come back!

Great house in the desert

We have been renting this house each spring since 2010. It's a very comfortable home, and in a great location. We really enjoyed our stay, as always.

Thank you, Richard

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful experience. The house is cozy and well maintained and ideally located "in the desert" rather than next to a swimming pool or artificial garden. Couldn't have been better. Everybody hopes to go back next year. Thanks Richard!

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!

Owner's Response: Thanks for coming and try us again in the Spring. Jan - Mar we are almost always booked, sometimes up to a year in advance. Our prices are always on the low side to accommodate couples and large families. See you soon. Rich
