Even better than it looks!
Generous - That's the best word to describe this property and its owners. The main house was laid out with a large central kitchen, luxurious master bedroom and expansive living room, the two casitas were spacious, the inner court yard was like something out of a Spanish hacienda, and the pool area was everything you could hope for. The views of the desert were breathtaking from several perspectives including the pool area. The photos are well-done, but they still don’t do the property justice.
But the little things: the fully-stocked kitchen; the two quite decent bikes; the outdoor pillows everywhere; the beautiful plants (with automatic drip watering) throughout the outside space; plenty of chairs, inside and out, both for dining and for lounging; plenty of towels, including for kitchen and pool. Many rental homes emphasize the “rental” part: the focus is on making money with minimal cost. This property emphasizes the “home” part: it is clearly someone’s home away from home, with all the extras that implies. We wanted for nothing.
This sort of generosity (and trust) makes you want to reciprocate, and we were happy to leave the home better than when we arrived (replaced some light bulbs, restocked kleenex, etc.).
Some of the praise should probably go to Turnkey, who no doubt are responsible for at least some of the abundance: lots of toilet paper, kleenex, paper towels, bathroom soap and shampoo, and they are definitely rental managers to look for in any property.
Turnkey was also a pleasure in dealing with the one problem we had: the propane tank ran out towards the end of our trip, leaving us without heat for the pool and spa, no stove top and no hot water for the casitas (the main house uses an electric water heater). Turnkey was quick to assist with the problem and has already offered us a very fair credit for the inconvenience.
Nothing’s perfect, but a week at the Desert Jewel is pretty close!

Amazing oasis
The house was perfect for a family vacation. We were 3 children and 3 adults and were very comfortable. I would not recommend more then 6 people. The location was beautiful and the house was well equipped for everything.

The courtyard, pool and spa area were very nice but we had trouble getting the pool warm enough for the adults to swim - kids had no issue. Overall, would definitely recommend for a holiday.

Perfect getaway in the best dark-sky-designated town around
We will rent this place again - it was absolutely perfect! Beautiful interior, exterior, pool, vaulted ceilings, courtyard, casitas, fountain, bathrooms, etc. What an incredible place to relax for a few days. Sublime indeed. The only issue we had was that we couldn't figure out how to turn on the pool vacuum hose which cleans the bottom of the pool; however, this was immediately fixed after a phone call, because the management quickly responded by sending someone out with a pool rake. Fixed! Incredible customer service. Great experience all around! Can't wait to return!

Great home - made for entertaining!
This was the perfect house for three couples - private bedrooms and bathrooms for all. We spent the day by the pool and dinner nightly under the stars in the courtyard patio. Beautiful home and memorable trip!

A Very Special Place
If you enjoy REAL desert views instead of golf courses, complete privacy and and endless stargazing, this home is lovely indeed. Completely comfortable and casual but obviously appointed by an owner with fine taste. And the managers are doing a fine job. The only reason I would not recommend this property is because it is almost always booked when we want to visit! Don't go! Please! :D

Borego Golf Outing
We take 12-16 men to Borrego once a year for a golf outing. We rented 5 homes from TurnKey this property served as our host house. It is very roomy and could accommodate our group for the annual BBQ and other evening affairs. The only negitive issue is the BBQ is a little undersized for our group.
