The Joshua Tree Oasis is truly a gem, I haven't seen another vacation rental in the desert quite like this one. As you arrive you will notice the beautiful garden and can smell the rosemary. You will also notice the property enclosed/ gated for some privacy and added safety. As you enter the property you can't help yourself, you'll want to explore the beautiful garden filled with: native plants, trees, koi filled canoe, a few lizards, a native iguana (my son named iggy), birds, beetles, butterflies, a BBQ area, three sitting areas and so much more. My children had the best time exploring the grounds. We all enjoyed checking out the garden, bugs, beautiful sunsets and the stars at night!
The inside of the home has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The rental has a good size kitchen with stove, fridge, small dishwasher and great center island, which we used on a daily basis. The kitchen is supplied with pots, dishes, utensils and much more.
The rest of the house is cozy, inviting and very relaxing. There is a king size bed in the bedroom and there is plenty of bedding, towels and a few throws on the couches. I enjoyed the Books and magazines, the husband the CD player and children cartoons on Netflix!
There is a "cottage" out back with more sleeping accommodations: a full sized bed and futon. Very relaxing. Of course, the kids thought it was their private home.
The home is 10 minutes from the National Park entrance, close to grocery stores, restaurants and cute eclectic shops.
If I may, my only suggestion might be a small clock radio for the cottage (to tell time and hear a little music) and possibly a microwave for the home itself. By all means these suggestions do not take away from the wonderful home; they would only add a little more.
We had a wonderful stay and Christian was delightful and responsive in all communications. We hope to return one day!
