About Ethan & Fabiane

It started years ago with a dream in the desert, a small house in the middle of nowhere overlooking thousands of baron acreage bordering Joshua Tree National Park. When Ethan and Fabiane purchased the home, it was initially painted all white with minimal landscaping and described by friends and family as a “sterile box without personality.” But what they envisioned was a house of infinite possibilities. As avid rock climbers and desert dwellers, they looked at their home as part of the desert; a living and breathing organism. They brought in top designers and landscapers to mirror the conceptual mix of colors of the desert, blues and greens representing the sky, yellows and reds like the sunrises and sunsets, and browns and tans like the mountains. They named their home Joshua Tree Oasis (JTO) and took great pride in their life-long creation.

Being big believers in Karma and the feeling that the beauty and love that they poured into the house would be reciprocated, they opened their doors to the world and began to share their Oasis as a vacation rental with others. They only wanted renters they felt would love and respect JTO’s appearance and cleanliness as much as they did. They take great care to get to know their clientele and will personally speak with each customer prior to renting to them to begin a relationship based upon mutual trust.

Ethan & Fabiane purchased this house in 2000

Why Ethan & Fabiane chose Monument Manor

With many years of Joshua Tree Oasis management, this husband and wife duo have learned what it takes to make guests happy and coming back for more. They know that no matter how wonderful a person’s home may be, you need a trustworthy team to supervise the flawless rental for both host and renter alike to guarantee rental success.

What makes this house unique

There is so much to do, from hiking to bird watching, rock climbing to mountain biking, or relaxing in the jacuzzi or cowboy spa, cooking a BBQ, reading a book, or sitting around a campfire.

You decide.

Never Ceases to Amaze

  • 5 of 5

This home and its location is beyond beautiful. This was our 3rd time coming to Joshua Tree Oasis, and we are never disappointed. The home is so warm, comfortable and charming. The scenery from the deck and Jacuzzi is beyond amazing. The kitchen is set up to cook fabulous meals. You won't need anything. Thank you so much again for sharing your beautiful home with us.

A magical desert oasis!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at the Joshua Tree Oasis. The house is just magical, with two structures perfect for two families overlooking the national park. The hot tub and cold tub were delightful, and we spent the weekend relaxing in the many hammocks, exploring all the wonderful places to relax, observing the local flora and fauna, BBQing our meals, letting our kids run around the desert, hiking up mountains and down gulleys, and, at night, relaxing over a cozy campfire. Ethan and Fabiane were amazing hosts, answering questions via messenger right away and overall being incredibly responsive and helpful. This was a perfect getaway - we can't wait to go back soon!

Warmly, Laura & Adam (Los Angeles)

Stunningly Special Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our three year old daughter to JTO for a couple days of family time from NYC. She's been talking about wanting to go camping and roast marshmallows and see "all the stars!" Well, we succeeded! Check off all the boxes...well, glamping. ;) Staring up into the night sky, in the absolute quiet, with her was more wonderful than I could've imagined. She loved the "outdoor bathtub", and discovered hammocks. My city kid LOVED all of it. And we were thrilled. The design is wonderful and so comfortable. All the special touches show so much care and really add to the ambience. Beginning my morning with my meditation out on the deck and seeing the sky turn pink with the sunrise was the perfect start to the day. Our friends asked if we were at a resort when I posted on Instagram! Thank you for sharing such a thoughtful, beautiful space. We'll be back!!

Great accommodations, Beautiful views, Relaxing atmosphere.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay at this property and we hope we can return for a third. For one of the couples this was the first stay and they were as pleased as we have been and were again. What is the attraction? First, the siting and color scheme of the house is exceptional and provides a fantastic view of the changing high desert Joshua Tree National Park landscape. As was true the last time we came, the property was clean, well-maintained, and provided all the necessities and amenities promised and that one expects in a rental. I had occasion to contact the owners and they were helpful and responsive. Almost every morning some of us hiked and explored the trails and washes that were easily accessible to the property. Of course, the nearby Joshua Tree National Park provides wonderful hikes and climbing for those so inclined. If you just wanted to relax, you could in one of the several hammocks, the hot tube, the spacious living room or the outside seating areas and enjoy the changing panorama of the desert that is spread out in front of you. I am always cautious about giving a glowing review to a place we like to stay because we do not want it to become oversubscribed and unavailable when we want to return but this place deserves it. It might not be for everyone as it is a bit isolated although there are ample places to go nearby and the town of Joshua Tree has stores, supplies and restaurants. It is the desert high country and if that is your cup of tea, this is a place where you can enjoy it to the fullest in wonderful accommodations in a beautiful sitting.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

The property (main house and guest house) were exactly as depicted on the website.

Based on the map, the place is secluded enough, and is also only a bit over a mile away from the Joshua Tree National Park entrance.

We love how the main house is framed to take in the natural sparse beauty of JT. The large glass window doors and windows and the jacuzzi up front are very thoughtfully positioned for full soaking in of the ever-changing vista, flora, and fauna.

The only add on we would have wanted was access to a washer and dryer within the property.

Desert bliss

  • 5 of 5

We return to Joshua Tree Oasis again and again because of its spectacular location overlooking a gorgeous undeveloped area of rocky hills just outside the national park, known as the Desert View Conservation Area. You can lazily contemplate this beauty from the comfort of JTO’s hot tub. Or you can take a nice hike starting from JTO’s back door that is just as beautiful as any in the park, and have this scenic wonderland mostly to yourself. In addition, we love the peace, quiet, comfort, and privacy that the house offers, and we appreciate the wonderful interior design and landscaping that provide a unique, whimsical, and charming sense of place. Please go somewhere else and leave this house for us to rent again soon.
