Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Married with four children and now our first grandchild, we lived about thirty minutes from one another through high school, but never met. After his first two years in the Marine Corps my husband and I met at my house through a mutual friend of my brothers. Married in 1989, my husband was stationed on the local Marine Base in Twentynine Palms. We fell in love with the area and when his time in the Corps came to an end, after the Gulf War, we made the area our home.

Why the Owner Chose Joshua Tree, CA, USA:
This property was chosen for its location to big city life of Palm Springs and small town living of the Morongo Basin... My husband and I wanted to raise our children away from the fast paced lifestyle of big city life while keeping ourselves a hop, skip, and jump away from it. The Morongo Basin offers the home town feel while being centrally located to Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and alike. The best of both worlds with the beauty of the desert landscape. Joshua Tree National Park gives us a great outside adventure only minutes away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home was a disaster when we purchased it; everything had to be redone. Oleander Retreat is a new and improved home from new cabinets and appliances to new tile and toilets. I especially enjoy sitting in the shade of the patio and chatting with friends. The home is smack dab in the middle of town and yet it has the feel of a quiet getaway. Just a few minutes drive to everything in the area...very centrally located.
