About the Owner

At age 18 I read the Adele Davis book 'Lets Eat Right to Keep Fit.' That was 56 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. Plus we now have a Trusted Property Maintenance & Restoration Manager. Lots of new changes. This beautiful Glass House is my RETREAT.

Round House Vacation ...Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
The Round House was like Staying in a Artist's Masterpiece...Round Walls with glass views, Round Floors with a unique puzzle design, Round Ceilings with a Round Kitchen with a awesome skylight...The Construction details were so Intricate. We stayed as a Couple but there is pleanty of room for Guests ( Sleeps 10 ). We relaxed and went to the Spa for Treatments. We also made a few trips to Indio to our Favorite Resturant "Cactus Jacks"...$11 Filet Mignon Quesadilla & Prime Rib Sliders with their Famous Martinis with Stops at Fantasy Springs Casino to Play $1000 Jackpot Bingo. Great Vacation and the Home will meet all your needs. Thanks Jane ...We Will Be Back!

We just completed our second stay at The Round House. It remains one of our favorite vacation rentals. The cactus garden is unique and is beautiful with the lights at night. The location is very good, and the house is very private. The kitchen has a large selection of cookware and a good selection of spices. This is an excellent alternative to the "condo culture"!

Spent 6 weeks in this beautiful home and enjoyed every minute of it. I have rented many homes and never had an owner so accommodating. This house and location had to be the best therapy for me after losing my husband a few months earlier in a tragic accident. We had rented the house before his passing because of its beautiful setting and know he would have loved it.

Counted 14 different species of birds and fed them daily. The floor to ceiling windows facing the front yard was so peaceful in the evening to sit and look out at the desert landscape that Jane has lights placed all around the house. The home is surrounded by mountains so you have some beautiful sunsets and sunrises you can enjoy from the large patio with lots of chairs and tables.

Took some amazing hikes (Big Morongo Canyon Preserve, Thousand Palms Oasis, Joshua National Park, and many trails in the Indian Canyons). This is one of many reasons that I will be returning to the Valley next year.

Also enjoyed visits and treatments at the Miracle Hot Springs resort within walking distance from the house (they also have a good restaurant, Caprice). Would highly recommend Willie Boys Saloon & Bar (9 miles from the house up 29 Palms hwy) directly across from the Big Morongo preserve road. They have some of the best barbecue, burgers, taco Tuesdays, etc. Other favorite restaurants were Billy Reeds, Las Casuelas Terraza which has the best in house made blood orange margarita I’ve ever had and of course there food was also awesome, Al Dente for Italian, Augustine Casino for all you can eat seafood buffet (including lobster), Jackealope Ranch, and Cactus Jacks.

Thank you Jane for making my 6 weeks so wonderful. You truly are a person with a caring heart and that is just what I needed.

Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The house was spectacular, and the participants in our meditation retreat loved it. The house was very clean, and provided every conceivable utensils, cutlery, blenders, towels, even soap and shampoo! When we had some early glitches with internet and hot water, the owner was instantly responsive.
We did go down to the spas and enjoyed a dip in the warm waters on our penultimate day. when our class was finished on Halloween Day...and one of our students and I got up and sang, "The Monster Mash" with the band at the spa.

We enjoyed our stay in the round house inmensely.

  • 4 of 5
The house being round and full of light provided a great gathering place for the family. The gardens were peaceful and beautiful, the cacti and birds including 16 quails to show us their gorgeous plumaje added a lot to our enjoyment. Everything in the house was welcoming and suficiente. Althoughwe didn't cook, the house provides everything to do so and entertain. Thank you to the owners for their attention to retail.

From the Owner

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 no where else. I just sit and look at the beauty and the squirrels, chipmunks, quail, roadrunners, cottontails, and an occasional coyote. Nite sunsets with bright stars!!! Shining all over the universe!

Only 6 blocks to the famous Spas of Desert Hot Springs. This includes a very special place called WE CARE. ( Detox Spa Grounds Our Landscaping is Charming Many guests find the We Care Spa grounds and detoxification facility are some of the best things about us. Not only is the landscaping lush, peaceful and filled with nature and interesting sculpture, but our architecture is an eclectic mix of the work of local artists and architects. Spiritual Detoxification Happens with Healing Installations Another unique facet of our detoxification spa is the healing installations that are a permanent part of the We Care Spa; they are not only unique and beautiful but they play an important role in the detoxification process and spiritual attunement we offer you. These installations are: The Ancient Labyrinth is one of the Universal Symbols of Transformation. The Temple of Gravity: Created for Burning Man, this is an art piece to observe. Floating Bed: Lay spread-eagle on the Floating Bed and meditate as it gently rocks you deeply into yourself. The Medicine Wheel is a structure that has been created and re-created by indigenous peoples for centuries for it’s astronomical, healing and teaching power. Far Infra-Red Sauna: The newest of the installations at We Care Spa is a one-of-a-kind architecturally. Exercise is a Daily Part of Your Detox Program; Our Specialized Equipment At We Care Spa we have a customized approach to exercise with very specialized detox equipment to be used each day. Our detox specialized detox equipment (which is found all over the property) has one goal in mind; that is DETOXIFCATION. Of course, we do want to create movement and exercise while you are juice fasting and cleansing but the KIND OF MOVEMENT is as important as burning calories or fat. Following we’ll explore where what and how our specialized equipment deepens your detoxification.
