Situated 3 miles from the Mexican border, (about 5 miles to drive) in the village of Columbus. We have a long circle drive with plenty of room. Our property overlooks Mexico with views in excess of 30 miles. The skies are amazing from sunrise till the starry night. Suggested Local Attractions:Columbus has a few cafes with authentic Mexican food, a post office, small grocery store and a gas station. For a series of virtual tours of the local area, visit our 360 Drives YouTube channel. These videos let you look in any direction by just dragging the image. https://youtube.com/channel/UCsaQDOjixBhwmCOAd47YaTg The town on the Mexican side is Puerto Palomas. It's a quiet border town with a (usually) quick crossing. Many nice inexpensive restaurants, optometrists, dentists, farmacias and shops to explore. Many come just for the affordable dental care & glasses. We have personally gotten glasses (exam, frames, progressive bifocal, transitions lenses and anti-reflective coating) for $150.

House Rules

Be aware of your surroundings. This is a desert environment and there are plenty of things that can poke and bite. Stumbling into a cactus can be quite painful as well as stepping on one wearing sandals. Watch where you step if you're out wandering the landscape and you'll be fine. Rattlesnakes and coyotes are seen in the area, so keep your pets and kids supervised. We have satellite internet out here, and due to the cost we ask for the $5/day wifi. Leave no trace. Well behaved kids welcome. 420 friendly. 🌈 Welcome.

    Dan and his wife were wonderful hosts! Great location, lots of room, and they couldn’t be more accommodating or helpful! I hope I get the chance to come back again in the future!

    We never met the host during our one-night stay but communication was good and we had a nice quiet night. Plenty of room here. Thanks to the host for hosting us!

    We loved our stay at Quail Ridge. The 360deg long distance views, and beauty of the property made for a special experience. We went into Mexico twice for affordable dental work, and enjoyed eating there. Don’t skip exploring Columbus, especially the Gallery that are hosts, D & K, are a part of. Overall, an excellent stay.

    Our host said he would order up a nice sunset for our arrival . We were not disappointed There are plenty of options to park your rig. The host had several ideas and a lot of knowledge of the area. This was our first boondockers stay and was a great experience.

    What a convenient place to stay along the US/Mexico border. Dan was super pleasant and made us feel welcome. Thanks again for the hospitality.
