'My own oasis. I love it.'

'Total privacy with views everywhere.'

'The pool and spa surrounded by mature palms make this a paradise.'

Not in all of Borrego is there a place as yummy as this. Once here, you will quit your job, sell your house and beg the owner to rent you this home forever. It is a true desert oasis with ageless Palm trees, Mesquite, Palo Verde and desert shrubs on two acres of privacy-- real privacy because there is actually a wall around the entire property (pet friendly, too).

And the views are breathtaking of the Santa Rosas, the San Ysidros, Font's Point, sunrises and sunsets. It feels like your own private retreat, a mid-century modern estate that harkens back to the 50's when there was graceful living; dinner out by the pool or the lanai or gazebo; midnight dips in the pool, a few moments in the spa before turning in for the night. In the bustle of modern life you need this home for a week or a month or a season anytime during the year. You will love the silence.

It's a place where you can spread out to read a book or sit and look at your navel or nap. The master suite is even in a separate casita near the pool.

But it is all about the outdoor living. Besides the cook's kitchen inside, there is also an outdoor kitchen. Everywhere you are under the shade of mature desert trees and the private spaces on the property are endless and so are the views. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

If you get bored with the serenity, you can always have a game of badminton or volley ball or horseshoes or bocce ball. Or go into town, which is just moments away or go explore the magnificent 600,000 acre Anza-Borrego Desert State Park or head up to the old mining town of Julian. You are allowed to leave your private paradise occasionally.

So with three bedrooms, two baths, a screened porch, a lanai, several patio areas, a sublime pool and spa, a beautifully landscaped two acres,

What are you waiting for? Run don't walk to your special place in the sun: 43 Palms. You will be back...if you ever leave.

Keywords: Gated Estate in the Country Club Area - less than a mile from town. Unique palm trees and native plants, large pool and flagstone patios - come and relax away from the crowd - bring your dog, we are pet owners and pet friendly.

About Richard Scott

Restored 50's classic on a spacious lot surrounded by privacy fence. Local owner loves Borrego and committed to making your Borrego visit to 43 Palms a unique and relaxing experience.

Richard Scott purchased this house in 2010

Why Richard Scott chose San Diego County

Quiet and privacy less than a mile from the Circle and center of town yet a world apart - the essence of Borrego. Completely fenced two acres. Mid century charm.

What makes this house unique

43 Palms greets you - sit under the giant Texas mesquite and watch the Santa Rosas turn pink at sunset - watch the moon come up over Fonts Point. Light a fire in the ring and sit back - this is chill Borrego style,

Always a great get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third year in a row staying here, I guess it's now a tradition. The views from the home are excellent and to have this much open space around you while staying in comfort is hard to find. The pool and spa are perfect for spending the day with the family or soaking the sore muscles from the days hike. You can't go wrong grilling up dinner, enjoying a cold beverage and hanging out with friends and family on the outdoor covered patio. The palms are the property are really cool and I love to take photos as the light changes in the morning. To watch the moon set in the morning over the mountains was truley unique...a moment I was glad I was up early sipping on some hot tea on the patio. The kitchen is well appointed and easy to keep clean. Always enough beds and room for our family along with our dog who loves to run around the back yard, to her it's total freedom even though we know it's fully fenced in and she is safe. Rich the owner is easy to reach and answers all of your questions, happy to get to know him over the years we've been renting from him. VBRO makes it easy and safe to book, the App was nice to communicate with the owner. It gave helpful info before and during our trip! Book this property for your Borrego Springs get-a-way you will be happy you did!!!

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

A group of moms stayed here for a weekend getaway, and we all really enjoyed ourselves. The house and casita are clean and cute. The backyard is amazing. The pool and Jacuzzi were not clean when we arrived, but Richard had someone come out to fix that once we let him know. We loved grilling by the pool and also the short drive to the cool giant sculptures down the road. We are looking forward to coming back!

Had a great time stargazing

  • 5 of 5

Fiancée wanted to stargaze and I found Borrego Springs was one of the best places to do so. I looked on VRBO for a dog friendly location and came across this property. My dogs loved the space to roam around, they always wanted to be outside. At night, there was nothing but stars. It was great. Property was nice and comfortable. You have a BBQ outside, though i did not use it. All in all I would stay there again.

A different review

  • 5 of 5

The title needs an explanation so here goes. We contacted Richard Scott to rent his property for 3 nights in June. We were coming over to Borrego to play golf on a Monday and Tuesday. The dates were open and we booked a 3 night stay. Several days later I called Ram's Hill to reserve tee times and found out that they had just instituted a new policy. They are now closed on Monday and Tuesday starting with the two days we had planned to be there. They didn't put a notice on their website and while they were apologetic for their non-notice, closed is closed so we had no place to play. I then contacted Richard and explained what had happened and asked if we could cancel. He was very understanding and offered a later three nights but two couples already had travel plans for other places during those dates. We were pretty much at his mercy and he could have easily said sorry but a deal is a deal. But he understood our situation and was gracious and kind enough to let us cancel with no penalty. We plan to reschedule in the fall when the golf course reopens and we will definitely use Richard again. We can't review the property but we can certainly give five stars to Richard and his treatment of us in this situation.

Great getaway for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Our two dogs enjoyed exploring the premises while we relaxed by the pool. We spent most our time outside, grilling and swimming. The house is clean, comfortable, and well equipped with anything you might need or wish you had brought. We will definitely go back. And are happy we stumbled across this rental!
