Decadent Oasis is an extremely special property, spanning 20,000 square feet of greenspace and two newly renovated structures totaling 4,000+ square feet of living space, with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, all crisply air conditioned by 7 tons of new AC.
The Main Home contains 3 spacious bedrooms, two featuring ensuite bathrooms, one bedroom featuring two beds, which is ideal for families traveling with children. The Master Bedroom is enormous, with a king size bed, lots of dedicated audio/visual gear (see Amenities below) and a dream bathroom – gorgeous diamond-laid, internally lit honey onyx walls, granite countertops topped with his & her onyx sinks, marble flooring, and decadent his & her rainshower fixtures extending downward from the ceiling, the entire bath space bathed in embedded LED light – an incredibly romantic experience. The Living room is vast, perfect for lounging or socializing with various couches strewn about (one a convertible sleeper for two), an eclectic mix of artwork throughout, computerized lighting (see Amenities below) and a perfectly tuned baby grand piano. Off the living room are both the Billiards Room and The Bar (see Amenities below). The flooring throughout the Main Residence is easy to clean tile, or rich, deep plank woods that are spill resistant.
The Kitchen is both spacious and beautiful, easily accommodating 20 people, outfitted with deep chocolate wood cabinetry and featuring every imaginable modern kitchen amenity - stainless appliances, large side-by-side refrigerator, double oven, two wine chillers, dedicated ice maker, standalone water cooler, breadmaker (great for the holidays), toaster oven and four burner cooktop – which prove essential for preparing group breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Plates, glassware, silverware and cookery are abundant, meaning Decadent Oasis is truly a home kitchen away from home. The pantry is stocked with some essentials (see Amenities below) so you can utilize the home right away without having to run to the grocery for certain items upon arrival. Off the kitchen is a dining table with seating for 10 people.
A separate structure on the compound, the Cottages, are located in the rear of the property just beyond the outdoor terrace and swimming pool (see Amenities below), accessible by a dedicated walkway. The Cottages offer incredible privacy for two couples, featuring two completely independent living suites, with modern bathrooms and miniature kitchens, one featuring a cooking range. The suites have separate private entrances and independent air conditioning systems.
The Day/Night Transitional Ambiance
While Decadent Oasis is a wonderful place to stay during the day, it transforms into a magical oasis at night, overflowing with cool ambiance. The terrace is candlelit, the pool glows in changing colors, the hot tub is surrounded by programmable LED lighting embedded in the palm trees which dance to the music, the soundsystems are clear and perfect, the moon and stars twinkle in the night sky. The artwork and sculpture installations throughout the compound come alive at night, and the lighting throughout the house is optimized, while our guests are surrounded by family and friends. So much of our incredible feedback from guests describes the aesthetic beauty of house at night. There are over 30 eclectic works of art in the home, including photographs, paintings, prints and lighting from Chihuly, Romero Britto, Miguel Paredes, Lego artist Nathan Sawaya, J.S.C. Boggs (who has exhibited at MOMA and The British Museum) and Tomas Loewy, who chronicles desert festivals like Burning Man. Lastly, the Living Room features a baby grand piano should a musician be in your party.
The Lush Grounds & Amenities
Decadent Oasis is both – an over the top setting for private revelry, and a transportive oasis of calm. The home has a large driveway which accommodates up to 8 vehicles, with lush landscapes of green grass and 7 varieties of indigenous, native palm trees adorning the gardens and property perimeters. The backyard is completely walled and private, with no direct sightlines to neighboring homes. Because Decadent Oasis is located in a enclosed residential neighborhood on a dead-end street, street traffic is very minimal, and the likelihood of noise complaints are reduced. The 9,000 sq. ft. home directly next door is the former residence of Jackie Gleason.
POOL – There is a large, deep, heated swimming pool in the backyard with an embedded LED lighting system. Aside the pool are 6 comfortable chaise lounges for sunbathing. The pool is 100% professionally cleaned between each guest stay, ensuring it’s crystal clear
HOT TUB – The hot tub is located on a dedicated, raised platform deck and easily accommodates 8 to 10 people. Featuring 56 variable jets and a private sound system, the hot tub is 100% drained and professionally cleaned between each guest stay.
OUTDOOR TERRACE – The expansive outdoor terrace is the perfect chill-out lounge for large groups, completely outfitted with pillows, daybeds, separate seating and a huge marble-inlaid table to accommodate lunch spreads or nighttime cocktails. The easily-washed tile flooring extends all the way to the BBQ area and also downward to become the pool deck.
OUTDOOR BBQ – Outdoor food preparation, cooking and dining are easy with a large BBQ and dining area on the outdoor terrace. Guests will receive one propane tank.
BILLIARDS ROOM – The Billiards room is perfect for entertaining, dancing or playing games, featuring a large, top-of-the-line Brunswick pool table with camel felt and plenty of quality pool cues. This room features dark, African wood floors, a supplementary AC unit, ambient lighting and a dedicated sound system.
THE BAR – Between the Billiards Room and Living Room is a dedicated bar. We do not provide any alcohol to guests.
LED LIGHTING SYSTEMS – The palm trees in the backyard, the pool, the living room, and the master bath have incredible, independent LED lighting systems which change colors and (some) can be programmed through an app to pulse to music. Ask us how to set this up.
THE AUDIO VISUAL SETUP – The entire home is wired for sound, with separate audio equipment servicing speakers throughout various zones, with various volume controls and inputs. Bedrooms feature Flat Screen TV’s, Apple TV controllers, Sony Playstation gaming, Blueray DVD, Netflix, Hulu and 50 pre-purchased movies for quiet nights or rainy days.

THE LAUNDRY ROOM – There is a separate enclosed laundry room with high-capacity front loading washer and dryer
STANDARD STOCKED ESSENTIALS – Decadent Oasis management strives to keep the house reasonably stocked with essentials such as bath/body wash, shampoo, conditioner, dishwashing liquid, washing machine detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, beverage mixers such as sodas, club soda, tonic, plastic cups, napkins and trash bags. Also, bath towels and duvet covers are professional-grade cleaned between guests. Bringing towels isn’t necessary. Guests might want to bring beach towels.

While we prohibit parties in the house to outsiders out of respect to our neighbors, we encourage our guests to fully utilize the house, and entertain among themselves. No smoking is allowed inside the house, but allowed on the terrace. Please, no loud music on the terrace or hot tub after 11pm.
While there is a wall around the entire property our pool is not fenced in. Therefore we do not allow children who can't swim onto the property and a waiver is required to be signed prior to check in.
