Thank you Sarah for submitting a review, I appreciate it. I am a bit surprised that you only rated my place as a 3 star since you left me a note stating that you liked my place and will be returning to stay here again next year. Which you are very welcome, you were a wonderful tenant.
I wish you had advised me prior to leaving about being unable to get the small grill to work, since I have the book for it, and left you with my cell number so I could address anything that may come up. I will try to get it working for the next guest and will replace it or remove it if I am unable to, so I do appreciate your letting me know about it. Since it is fairly new, it may be a simple fix. I will however reimburse you for the gas container pack you purchased if you like. Please let me know what you paid, and where I can send you a check if you like.
As for advising that the apartment is in the basement, that is not exactly correct. Since we live on a slight slop of a mountain, the way the property is situated is that the apartment entrance, which is the bedroom/living area, and the bathroom are on ground level with a full window in the bathroom and the bedroom, and a full length door window with the built in blinds. The attached kitchen is accessed through a small connecting hall on the sloping part of my home. Therefore, it is at 1/2 basement level (underground up to about the chest level in kitchen/dining area), but does have a small window for ventilation, but agree that there is no real sunlight access in there.
However, because the kitchen is small, I do ask, and have previously noted in the listing, that I prefer people not use the oven in the summer because it heats the place up, then the AC in the kitchen would not work efficiently and would make it uncomfortable to dine in there. I know just using the stove top and the toaster-oven does not replace a full oven, but I hope this won't prevent you from returning and enjoying all the other benefits you gain by staying here .

"Not all condominiums are the same"
We stayed in unit 22, 1BR with kitchen and living room. Patio opening to a well maintained lawn with nice mountain views. Three miles drive from Christmas circle, 5 miles from the state park visitor c… More
Thanks for your review.... unfortunately your review was for unit #22 at Club Circle and not the unit on this listing; #58.
Sorry you felt your stay was not so wonderful. Maybe pick a different unit the next time. Club circle offers many things that newer condo project can't begin to match. Space... golf course a 2 minute walk away.. beautiful grounds...EZ Access... Great Views. If this property was built on today there would be at least 4 times as many units as when it was built in the 60's.
Again... we're sorry your exhaust fan did not get fixed during your 3 day stay.
Hope you enjoyed fabulous Borrego Springs
