This home is perfect for enjoying with friends (which we did) or a romantic getaway. Although we didn't have kids, they would have enjoyed the pool and the outdoors very much.
The house is inviting, well-kept, clean on the inside and well-manicured on the outside. We had all the tools we needed. They just installed a new oven as well and it's nice to know the owners take such good care of their home. We really enjoyed the private, yet open feel the house has.
The house can comfortably fit 8 yet it's warm and inviting enough for just 2.
As far as things to do, there was something for everyone in our group.
For the adventure seeker, we went on a 6 mile hike through Hellhole Canyon.
For the athletes, the surroundings are fantastic for cycling and running and the golf course is almost ready. Best part is that it's a short walk away! The pool is perfect for lap swims too.
For those who want to relax, we were able to unwind by just lounging by the pool. It's tranquil and the views are incredible from the backyard at both dusk and dawn!! There are also some great outdoor spots where you can enjoy some shade.
We also went to the Borrego Springs Spa for a nice relaxing treat, but next time we stay at this house, we may hire someone to give us massages poolside, because there's really no reason to leave the premise!
Dining - I would recommend using the outdoor grill and eating poolside! We had a great time having meals in different areas of the house and enjoyed the spectacular views from all angles!
Don't forget to look up after the sunsets. The star gazing from there is unlike anything you've ever seen!
I would also suggest the Rams Hill Hill Country Club restaurant which is a two minute drive from the house. There is great service, excellent food (hear the pizza is divine) and a really nice wine list. There was also live music and a private room for special occasions which we plan to use next time we are back.
The restaurant at Casa del Zorro is also really good if you want some variety.
Overall, I can't wait to go back as it was a relaxing and fun time! There is something for everyone at this magical oasis.
