• OTHER THINGS TO NOTE
Professionally managed by Hi-Desert Dwellings

• RENTAL AGREEMENT
There will be a rental agreement sent out that will need a signature to complete the reservation

• A/C
The Martian Rose is cooled by central air conditioning and is programmed by a nest thermostat.

• ROADS
The property is located on about 10 miles of dirt roads and we have very specific directions to get to the property

• WIFI
Please note the wifi may be spotty at times due to the remote location of the home.

• BATHROOM
The Martian Rose has a toilet and a urinal in the bathroom

• NOISE
The Martian Rose is located close to the maritime base and can occasionally hear and feel the house shaking during their test "bombing". It only happens occasionally and is only during the middle of the day.

• Critters
There are bugs, bats and other desert critters that frequent the outside area of the property. They're fun to watch, and will leave you alone but we just want to be sure everyone is aware that since it's a remote desert property, they are occasionally present.

• Security cameras
There are 2 and only 2 security cameras on the property. They are only for security of the property. The alerts are turned off when guest are staying at the house. The cameras are visible and in plan sight.
One is positioned at the entrance to the front door. It is aimed at the paths leading to the door, and does not look onto the front patio or at the hot tub.
The second is positioned at the entrance to the kitchen door and looks toward the tower.
There is no camera that looks at the back patio or the doors that lead from the bedrooms onto the patio, nor is there a camera that overlooks the uncovered patio with the fire pit.

• Pets
We loves pets and are really happy they come. We do recommend though that pets be supervised or preferably on a leash at all times when they are outside. The reason for not letting them have free run, is although the property is fenced, there are places where rains wash through natural channels and can open up spots under the fence that pets could crawl under.
Also there are things that would like to do harm to our furry friends, and not all of them are obvious. Even some of the plants are waiting for just the right moment to attack with thorns. I swear them cholla can fly. Always keep an eye on your little buddies. There are coyotes, hawks, vultures and owls to name a few that hunt for food in the desert.

• TOWER SHOWN IN PICTURES
the tower currently is not available for guest use. It's filled with the homeowners personal items and not accessible for guests.

• GUESTS
You are not permitted to have any guests on the property beyond those included in your rental agreement unless you request and receive permission from us. That includes day guests and over night guests.

• IDENTITY VERIFICATION
You will receive a text or email from Guest Ranger that will ask you to verify your identity and submit a picture of a government issued ID and a selfie. This information will be used to verify that the booking guest matches the credit card used and to help reduce any issues with identity theft. This process is mandatory to complete the booking. The data is protected in a hash-encrypted vault following data security standards including GDPR. Data-input in the vault is encrypted in a two-way function where information is scrambled using an encryption key and unscrambled later using a decryption key. On top of that, we use hashing to add an extra layer of security using a one-way function where a unique message digest is generated from an input file or a string of text. No keys are used.

"The house is an artistic UFO themed eclectic wonder. The marble milky way and planets floor mosaic is a true work of art. This is not a swanky kind of place. It is basic natural beauty, with many remnants of its jackrabbit past. The acreage is ripe with assemblage art mixed with raw desert. Very dog friendly, with fenced in property full of birds and lizards to keep any dog happy."

"We were delighted to experience the intersection of modernity and Mother Nature. The kitchen and bath were impeccable. It was a welcomed delight to be relaxed in the hot tub as bees gathered nectar from a nearby bush and hummingbirds rapidly floated from one flower ti another. At night we relaxed in the stargazing chairs, protected from the wind by trees and a mid-height fence. Our views of the night sky was only intermittently obscured by clouds rolling by us. We made note of a tripod in the closet for our next cross-country visit. We made it to the Martian Rose, easily following the instructions they provided. Next time, I won’t go for the smallest/cheapest rental car. Rather, I would get at least a mini SUV, so that we could further take advantage of this exciting spot for exploration. We plan to come back in the fall."

"We enjoyed the solitude and privacy provided by this property. We loved being able to walk around the property and see the gorgeous views from all sides. The Martian themed decor adds to the creativity of the place. The furniture for stargazing was perfect and they even provided Sherpa blankets for extra coziness around the house. Great find!"

"Our 1st short term rental ever and it was a great experience. Perfect place to get away from everything. Took amazing photos. The stars at night where incredible not having light pollution to ruin the view. The bed was better then most hotels we stay in. Coffee & Tea options and plenty of pots and pans to cook. My wife and I loved it."

"Martian Rose is a perfect quirky desert getaway. There are magical little touches everywhere you look throughout the property. In especially liked how they had bowls and pick up bags for our dog. The views are stunning and you really get the isolated feel here. Once we entered the gates we didn't want to leave, though it's not a far drive into either 29 Palms, Joshua Tree or Pioneertown. They have excellent directions so we didn't have to get lost with GPS. This home has super cute atomic mid-century touches and we were not disappointed with the views we got watching the meteor shower. We will definitely be back!"
