About Mary Watkins
My husband and I are empty-nesters and enjoy our two furry kids and grandkids, travel, movies and listening to books together. We dream of having more time to paint (me!) and parasail (him!).
Mary Watkins purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Mary Watkins chose Borrego Springs
We live in busy Orange County and love the quiet and stark beauty of the desert. Early in our courtship we found Borrego, were married there, then decided to find a a little pied-a-terre. We love that we can park the car and not have to get back in it if we choose -- everything we need is walking distance! Groceries, farmers market on Friday mornings, great coffee and pastries, fun local color dining, art galleries, gourmet shops, hikes out our door.... or stay in, total quiet relaxation. Borrego always surprises us. For a tiny village there is no end of interesting people to meet, from all walks of life and all ends of the world!
What makes this Condo unique
Borrego Springs is the first and only Dark Sky Community in the state, and possibly the West. That means you see STARS! like you've never seen them before. No light pollution to violate the sky, so when the moon is new it can get dizzyingly dark - and the stars explode above you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our spring break stay. The accommodations were perfect for our needs. Plenty of linens, comfortable beds and kitchen was well-equipped for us to cook dinner most nights. The town is within easy walking distance. We enjoyed the well-maintained pool and appreciated that one of the pools was heated, as the other was still a little chilly in April. Definitely stay here if you want a relaxing and comfortable stay in beautiful Borrego!
Thank you for your kind words, Christine! So happy you enjoyed our little corner of heaven!
