** Cleaning Protocols ***
As the only professional management company in the area, we have always maintained exceptional cleaning standards. We pay above the living wage standards; 100% of your cleaning fee is paid to the cleaners (i.e. no profit to us) and we insist on a professional level of cleaning between guests. We love the High Desert for a lot of reasons - including the open spaces, lack of crowds, and dry weather that we believe make it a safe place to visit.

The space
The Ox House brings together desert coziness and modern functionality. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a sitting room adjacent to kitchen as well as a game room which is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

2.5 acres of gorgeous desert land with views of Joshua Tree National Park. The property includes many Joshua Trees and guests are frequently visited by wildlife - including birds, jackrabbits, chipmunks and lizards. The house is 9 miles from the entrance of Joshua Tree National Park and only a short drive from town.

We have a garage game room to enjoy! It includes a ping pong table, giant jenga, corn hole, and a yoga mat + weights. We also have board games to enjoy.

The Ox House has mini splits throughout the house, which provide air conditioning and heat to each room.

The kitchen is fully stocked for those who want to cook during their stay. Salt, Pepper & Coffee are provided, as well as filtered water and other spices. All the cookware you need is available to you here.

We provide all essential bathroom necessities, including bath towels, hand towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and a hair dryer.

We have WiFi on the property and cell service also works great.

We have a propane fire pit located behind the house for your use.

We have one security camera on the front patio of the property closest to the parking area. This is for safety to protect the home when it's not occupied by guests. The camera films the front door and patio area, but cannot see into the house.
