Oasis Park developer Masoud Shojaee of Shoma Group said the majority of the homes are going to Venezuelan buyers. Project architect Francillis Domond, who grew up in Venezuela, said "Venezuelans have large extended families, and it's very common to get together for family events at least every month."

Hammocks are strung between some of the 42 avocado trees, and guests lie back while sipping tropical juices, smoothies and shakes made from locally grown fruits of the Redland. In addition, 28 shaded sapodilla trees, eight lychees, four dragon fruits and one kumquat freshen the air around the property. “It’s a dream come true for both of us,” Rolando said, explaining that he had always wanted to own a farm and Carmen had always wanted to own a smoothie store.
