About the Owner
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 California Desert
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. 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!!!
(44 traveler reviews)
The other 5-star reviews do a good job of describing the features that make this house so special, so I'l just add that I've stayed at the Glass House numerous times over the past 3-4 years, which says something in itself, and brought numerous friends and relatives here, all of whom have enjoyed it thoroughly and expressed interest in returning - and that the house is located on a quiet street on the edge of Desert Hot Springs at an elevation that provides a scenic view of Coachella Valley and 10,500 Mt. San Jacinto as well as an unobstructed view of sunsets over the mountains. The owner keeps the property up to snuff and is responsive to any questions and concerns. Once again, I'm hoping to return as soon as possible.
Fantastic Desert Retreat
We've stayed at Jane's desert oasis several times. We love staying there, especially because of the lush desert setting with an acre of peace, tranquility, and privacy. Looking out the wall of glass from the living room over morning coffee or soaking up the sunshine in the front yard, and seeing the wildlife; including quail, rabbits, chipmunks, an occasional roadrunner, lots of birds, and even once a large bird of prey perched on a rock in the yard, is a special treat.
The unique round house of the desert
Waking up to sound of birds singing and watching rabbits and road runners while making breakfast, makes a delightful change from a busy lifestyle.
The mature cactus garden, which is well lit for evening viewing, is one of a kind. We highly recommend it to our friends, and planning a return visit soon. Kaye and Jaysone Tylor
Home away from home!
This is our family/friends third stay at the round house or "the house of doors" as my sis nicknamed it (in a good way:) This home is set up very nicely and accomodating to all your possible needs. Jane is a very easy person to reach and wonderful to do business with. The house was close enough to the activities we wanted to do and very close to a shopping center. We always feel very comfortable here and the landscaping is very cool as well!
Thank you once again Jane for a very nice stay! I am quite sure we will be returning.
Charming Round Glass House in Desert Hot Springs
We had a sad reason for coming to the desert on the same tough to find lodging weekend that the Coachella Rock Festival was afoot in Indio. We came for a family memorial service. My wife and I live on the Monterey Peninsula and we are in our 70s. We were joined by our two adult sons who travelled from Portland, Oregon. The charming round glass house perfectly suited our needs. The architecture from the 1960s is unique and delightful. The house sits somewhat high on a bench with direct views of Mt. San Jacinto. The front covered patio and the gardens are private and a wonderful setting to sit, read, share a sarsaparilla, and enjoy the desert. We didn't use the rear patio with table and BBQ and views of the rear garden, but noticed how nice it would be for outdoor dining. The interior living room, kitchen and dining area are comfortable and inviting with room for several people to gather. The bedrooms and baths are clean with everything functioning as they should. The house is equipped with all the things needed for a visit. Even for such a sad purpose we enjoyed our stay at the round glass house.
We are a family of 3 and had a great time in this very unique home. The house is incredibly spacious - our 6 year old daughter had her own bedroom and the large backroom as her personal play space! The front round house with floor to ceiling windows is a great space - you totally feel like the outside desert is an extension of the house. Neighborhood is quiet and easy access to surrounding sights and highways. Jane was very easy to work with and quick to answer any of our questions. Sadly 3 nights was too short...hopefully we will be back. Highly recommended.
