About JaneTess Davis
At age 18 I read the Adele Davis book 'Lets Eat Right to Keep Fit.' That was 60 years ago. That was my bible. I have been on the path to health and nutrition ever since. Too many people today encourage diseases by their poor nutrition and by overeating. Today we MUST supplement our nutrition with appropriate vitamins and minerals because our many foods are lacking those essential elements that we need to sustain a good long and healthful life. Desert life fits right into a healthful way of life. Lots of new changes. This beautiful Glass House is my RETREAT.
JaneTess Davis purchased this House in 2000
Why JaneTess Davis chose Desert Hot Springs
I fell in love with the gardens on this 1.2 acre property. The Round Glass House is a dream come true. Wild life is abundant. When I stay here I go nowhere else. I just sit and look at the beauty and the squirrels, chipmunks, quail, roadrunners, cottontails, and an occasional coyote. Night sunsets with bright stars!!! Shining all over the universe! Also have a wonderful manager Alex Terraza who can be called at any time.
What makes this House unique
Only 6 blocks to the famous Spas of Desert Hot Springs. Walking trails, hikes, 45 minutes to Joshua Tree, golf courses, great restaurants, 15 minutes to Palm Springs. The house is equipped with everything. Just bring yourselves. We have a new DVR which makes it easy to turn on the TV. Record what you like and watch later at your convenience. At night the lights go on in the front and back gardens automatically. It is a light garden show. Sit outside at night and you may think you are in Paradise!!!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Unique retro-charm in the desert of SoCal.
We loved the unique house and the wonderful views of local flora and fauna.
There were some minor problems that the property owner needs to pay attention to:
Screenless window that wouldn't close completely in the front bathroom. Also the shower doesn't drain properly and you stand in ankle deep water while showering, faucet at the bathroom was loose and wobbly. Several of the ceiling fans didn't work at all, including the one on the outside deck. Couldn't get the TVs to work, but we didn't go there to watch TV - so that was okay.
Thanks for the comments. Wish you had called me, we could have fixed everything. My manager lives down the street. Come again. Things will
I feel so lucky we stayed here!!!! This house is amazing. The front of the house and faces a large cactus garden, and we'd watch the bunnies and birds right outside the window.
The roundhouse has so much character. The lighting at night and the views of the mountains just add to the experience.
I ended up calling and writing Jane, the owner a few times. She is incredibly nice and helpful.
The house is 30 minutes to Joshua Tree and 20 to Palm Springs, and you feel like you're out in the desert. It couldn't be more perfect!!!
There is no pool at the house but the Desert Hot Spring resort is a 2 minute drive away.
There are 8 beds we didn't use! This house would be great for large families or a large group of friends.
You all are incredible people. Loved having you and your incredible review!!! Thank you so much!
Great place for relative gathering with central kitchen and separate patios and rooms for quiet time. Definitely need a car. really nice private patio and friendly manager.
Unique Desert Experience
The Roundhouse was a really unique building and I enjoyed my stay there with my family. The "glass" portion of the roundhouse is actually half a circle and consisted of the living room, entry, and dining room. It was a wonderful space to be in, with great views. The bedrooms and bathrooms were darker and more conventional. The kitchen was at the heart of the home and was well equipped for cooking. Modern amenities were a bit lacking (internet didn't work and stereo didn't play CDs), however not a particular surprise since it is an aging home in the desert. This home was very clean and we felt safe there with young kids. Loved seeing bunnies and birds right outside the window. Thank you, Jane, for offering up such a unique property at a good value!
Thank you for the nice review. Hope to see you in the future. Jane
Perfect desert stay
Our stay at the glass round house was wonderful. The house is comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our long weekend. I hope we get to enjoy the round house again in the future.
