About Judy Scheuer

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 Ocotillo desert mountain scene art glass window in the new wall in the upstairs bedroom.

Judy Scheuer purchased this condo in 2011

Why Judy Scheuer chose San Diego County

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.

What makes this condo unique

The 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.

Clean, Spacious and Nicely Furnished

  • 4 of 5

Tall ceilings and nice art work added to the charm of this desert casita. The condo"s porches faced the western desert with unobstructed views. Kitchen is big and well stocked. We cooked all our evening meals without any problems. Had an unfortunate router failure which the owners were very helpful in resolving.This was our first visit to the area and were lucky enough to see an amazing display of spring flowers.

The casita was a very comfortable and quiet oasis.

  • 5 of 5

The wife and I wanted a nice place to stay while watching the Perseid meteor shower. We actually saw more shooting stars from the comfort of Judy's casita-second-story balcony then from the golf course nearby.

During the day we napped on the comfortable beds and made meals in the functional but beautiful kitchen. The WiFi did not buffer as we watched movies on the couch from the coffee table that pulls up to just the right height.

Once the sun started to set, we used the pool which was like a bath tub--very inviting from the summer heat. We explored the area with our dogs and saw a coyote that lives nearby--scrawny little fella.

Judy (the owner) was very helpful by responding quickly to questions.

So, Would I stay here again? Yes, in fact, we might buy a vacation home in the area as a result of our experience. Try the place, you won't be disappointed.

Great Casita

  • 5 of 5

This Casita was very comfortable and meticulously maintained. Perfect for a golf vacation as within walking distance to the clubhouse and all the amenities you could want or use. Once the Direct TV is operable it will be perfect! They even had coffee and a bean grinder which was outstanding! Secret gem in the desert!
