Imagine a donut, the center of the donut is Borrego Springs, and the outside is the 600,000 sq miles of Anza Borrego State Park. Our Santa Fe adobe fort house is located in the Estates, 1 acre lot with a magnificent panoramic view of Indian Head, Font's point, and Ocotillos forest. In driving time, Borrego is 1.5 hours away from any place in San Diego county. In reality, Borrego is in a world away from the busy-ness and hectic-ness of traffic, chain stores, commotion, crowds, deadlines, congestion, and pollution. On some hot days, Borregans do not get wi-fi, internet, and phone service. Why you may ask would people want to vacation in Borrego Springs. People come out to our serenity escape to get away from the textings, emails, world wide web, and enjoy our quiet desert.
Folks have come as far as British Columbia, Canada to NYC to LA to Germany. They all have fallen in love with our dig and Anza. They sleep under the "amazing" stars. It is an unbelievable quiet desert escape. No busy signal lights. We have one round-about. Like the movie with Marilyn Monroe of, "Some like it hot!!" Borrego Spring brags an extreme heat of 120f in the summer month of July. Right now, it is a nice 80's to the mid-90's during the day and mid 50's at night. Astronomers come to Borrego's night time sky to see the stars at 2 am. Our Borrego valley is a quiet hidden treasure.
Our Summer is beautifully dotted with a few desert flowers. The ocotillos have bloom but now the tall Lord's candles and the yellow yuccas are dotting our hillside. Each month, there is a favorite flower in bloom. As for the animals, the jack rabbits with its floppy ears are hopping around our property along with the quails and coyotes. We had the zoologist of NY central park came to visit our place, his grandson love-love all the creatures of the desert. A group of young coyote pups wander in and out. You can hear the coyotes howling at night. You leave them alone and they leave you alone. In the early morning, you can hear all sort of birds chirping in our smoke trees. We boast 10 matured smoke trees. Believe it or not, the smoke trees bloom in July with it purple flowers. Recently, we added a purple Texas ranger on our property and it has beautiful pink-purple flowers. It seem like as it gets hotter in Borrego Springs, the flowers are even more spectacular!...Read more

This house is nothing short of magnificent! It's even more beautiful than the photos show. It's open and very spacious. Clean, modern, beautiful views, easy to get to and quiet. We have stayed in other properties that were very nice in Borrego but this is our absolute favorite! The owner, Jayne, is quick to response if you have a question. We had a very positive experience and loved the house. Highly recommended:)
