Why Andra Dillard chose California Desert

My husband and I live in Santa Barbara, California. Though we are not yet able to retire, we fell in love with this home's open floorplan, the upgrade options and the community activities. We opted to purchase the home now so it will be available for us for retirement someday! In the mean time, you can have the pleasure of staying in our Desert Oasis and availing yourself of the fabulous amenities and activities offered at Sun City Shadow Hills.

What makes this house unique

We and our guests enjoy Desert Oasis so much that we decided to purchase an additional 2 BR / 2 BA home in Sun City Shadow Hills. She is every bit as beautiful, peaceful and well appointed. Ask about our new Sun Haven!

A Gem in the Desert

  • 5 of 5

Ahhhh is what we said when we walked into this beautiful home. It really is an oasis! This place had everything we needed and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The kitchen was well equipped and the house had everything we could ask for and more. The décor is beautiful, relaxing and it is tastefully done. We were proud to show the place off to our friends who were also staying at Sun City Shadow Hills. A hop in the golf cart and a quick drive to the swimming pool became a daily routine for us. We played lots of rounds of golf and loved using your golf cart that was included. We had some yummy BBQ parties on the lovely back patio with friends and some of the neighbors while taking in the sounds of the fountain and views of the mountains. We had a great time and would highly recommend Desert Oasis to anyone!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this property for the month of October 2015. The house and grounds were even better than pictured. The title of this review sums my opinion up - everything was just perfect. The house was clean, comfortable and well equipped, the grounds were a pleasure. Perfect for coffee on the patio in the morning. The owners, Andra and John, were most helpful from the initial inquiry through the end of our stay. A most pleasant experience. I would recommend a stay at this property to anyone. We were so impressed with the property and the community that we bought a home of our own. I rated this 5 stars because that was as high as they would let me go - it deserves more.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this comfortable property for the month of April 2014 and found the listing description and photos were accurate. The house was clean and well maintained and extremely well equipped for our stay. Andra was very good and prompt in answering any questions. We found the house and yard to be private and quiet and it was lovely to have the citrus trees bearing fruit; the other trees were flowering as were some cacti - all attracting hummingbirds. We definitely would recommend this property to friends and relatives. We drove into adjoining LaQuinta and Palm Desert for restaurants and shopping. The Jackalope on hwy.111 east of Jefferson is a great place for drinks or a meal with live music.

Great Golf Getaway

  • 4 of 5

When we rented, the property was brand new (2012). The listing gave a very good description of the property. The home was nicely decorated and the kitchen was very well supplied (the best we've experienced in the last 10 years of renting through VRBO).

Golf was very reasonable. The North course, Par 3, 18 hole course was very challenging and playable by the average golfer.

Current construction in the immediate area was tolerable. Once completed we would certainly recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Access to all activities, shopping, etc. was very easy.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Al and Clara, for the kind words. We are glad that you enjoyed our "Desert Oasis." We worked very hard to assure that the house is stocked with every amenity a guest would need. We are glad you appreciated this. It is now June and all the property lots around us have been sold with construction to be completed by November, 2012. So the construction hub will no longer be in our vicinity. We upgraded the landscaping a bit and the yard is maturing nicely. We actually have fruit on the five citrus trees now! Take care, be well!
