Owner John has been in the construction industry for over 40 years so he was undaunted by the task of renovating a 'fixer upper' casita. We love the desert and had been looking for an opportunity to purchase a casita in the Rams Hill development for many years.. When the opportunity arose, we jumped on it. The two story casitas in Rams Hill have open loft upstairs bedrooms. We decided to fully enclose the upstairs room to provide more privacy for guests. We installed an art glass window in the new wall of an Ocotillo and desert mountain scene in frosted glass.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

We have been visiting the Borrego area for many years and often have stayed in Rams Hill casita rentals. We feel that the location, gated entrance, beautifully kept grounds around the casitas and the elevated location above the desert floor lend a setting that is unequaled in the area. It was a logical extension of our staying in casita rentals to purchasing one for our own enjoyment. We also own a lot in the San Felipe community within Rams Hill and the casita will provide a base for us to operate from when we eventually build a custom home there.

Our fire pit seating area on our patio lends a very unique experience to enjoying the nights in our casita. We have spent evenings looking at the spectacularly starry night sky with a cozy fire in the fire pit. Our patio faces west towards the desert and mountains so the view is one that few other casitas in this development share. We enjoy taking long walks through the area.

This condo suited us to a T. We care about aesthetics, and the classy, tasteful decor throughout this condo was the perfect indoor complement to the nicely landscaped outdoors and gorgeous mountain views. There's abundant, safe, scenic walking and jogging around the Rams Hill development; we also spent many hours soaking up serenity and senery on the private patio--coffee in the a.m., iced tea during the afternoons, wine to toast the gorgeous sunsets. Inside the condo, there's plenty of natural light with windows on three sides. It's a charming and efficient layout. The photos can't do it justice.

The condo is uncluttered yet has everything we needed or wanted, from a coffee grinder to hiking sticks! Our visiting young niece devoured the Nancy Drew mystery from the owners' mini-library. Linens and dishes are high quality and newer. Everything is tidy and organized. The beds are super; we slept so well here. The spacious master bedroom and ocotillo art glass window had our guests oohing and ahhing. The big screen for watching DVDs was a treat. The firepit table on the patio was an elegant twist on the campfire concept, and the gas grill was a snap to use. The internet wi-fi worked perfectly. We found ourselves glad to take a vacation from television. It was truly a retreat!

We spent 2 weeks here over Thanksgiving. Incredibly, we were able to make a full turkey dinner in the convenient kitchen. We were able to accommodate 5(!) more family guests that night, thanks to foldout sofa sleepers. Our guests visited the pool up the street and raved about its gorgeous setting.

Judy and John were super to work with: responsive, hospitable, straightforward, trustworthy. They clearly love this place and want their guests to love it too. We'd love to come back here soon. You really can't go wrong renting this condo.
