Oakley's Oasis is named after our beloved first puppy. Much like him, the house has a lot of personality! We wanted to use the space to honor his legacy. Located central Rochester, it is close to Mayo, Silver Lake, and Quarry Hill. We have lived in this house for the past three years, and are grateful to offer it to our guests! We've been blessed to have hosted many amazing guests at our other home, Betty's Bungalow, and look forward creating a great experience for those who stay with us!

The space
-We will have everything you should need to make yourself at home! Let us know if theres something specific you need!
-Coffee, tea, and cooking oil and spices provided.
-Roku, (with associated Netflix account), Xbox 360, boardgames, and an over the air antenna with 25 local HD channels provided.
- There are three steps up into the house, and a staircase down to the unfinished basement. These are only for the laundry!

Guest access
-Everything is yours to use. We have a large garage (we do store some of our things here), where you can park your vehicles.

-The deck is there for your enjoyment in the limited days of nice weather!

-Complete unfinished basement with laundry supplies.

-Just a heads up that we have cameras on the front and back of the home, which ensure that no uninvited guests/thieves are on the premises. There are no cameras in the home.

Other things to note
-We have commodes, shower chairs, and bed railings available for those with limited mobility issues.

-We provide a pack-n-play and high chair for those with little ones!

-All of our sheets and bedding are hypoallergenic for those with allergy or sensitivity issues.

We are newlyweds living and loving in the Med City. Emily is a practicing Occupational Therapist at Mayo Clinic, and Alex just graduated from Physician Assistant school. We met at Lawrence University, where we both attended college. Our favorite things include... 1. Goldendoodles - talk doodle to us, and we'll be fast friends :) We adore our one-year-old pup, Rory. We now have a recent addition of a new puppy Poppy! 2. Good food - Indian and Thai are two of our favorites, but we'll never turn down a good pizza. (anything really...) We like food. 3. Yoga - we love practicing yoga at home! Wanna start? We can share some of our favorite YouTube channels with you! 4. Board Games - the nerdy kind... the ones most people have never heard of... Terra Mystica, Lords of Waterdeep, or Pandemic to name a few! But if you're nice, we may even play the classics with you! 5. Walking/hiking - whether simply walking our neighborhood, hitting the local trails, or hiking Devil's Lake in Wisconsin, we enjoy getting out in nature. Our puppies come too, of course! We value meeting and developing new relationships with those who come through our doors. Our mission is to treat you as if you were our own family! You can learn more about us at DharmaDwellings!

During your stay
We love hosting guests to the Med City, and we're excited to share it's unique attractions with you! After having such an fantastic hosting guests at Betty's Bungalow, we are branching out!

We live approximately 10 minutes from the property and are available in the evenings if needed. We work at the clinic during the day, but texting is a great option for quick questions or issues! We enjoy interacting with guests, but will certainly give you your privacy. If you are staying with us for longer than a week we like to make you a meal as a way to get to know you and give you some great food! We also have retired family members in town who can help out in a pinch!
