About Sean

Pete and I have both grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area and have been coming down to Palm Springs for the past 15 years. What brought us to the desert is the nearly guaranteed sunshine, modern architecture, relative peace from the bustle of a large urban center, and the great hiking trails and mountain vistas. We have seen Palm Springs evolve with a new 'hipper' scene including restaurants, cultural events (film festivals, art exhibits, etc.), and a variety of healthy lifestyle options, while still maintaining it's small town charm. At 'zen house' we try to capture all of the above with simple, stylish, artful design.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Peter and Sean:Thank you for welcoming us into your home. As Steven shared, the heat and home were heavenly! Your detailed directions were easy to follow and the fundamentals were all offered during our visit. “Zen” indeed! We were actually inspired to view listed properties while in the desert and would love at some point to pick your brains about the “science” behind a Palm Springs second home/rental. Perhaps we can do this at some point… Nevertheless, thank you for a relaxing summer vacation with the people we love, uninterrupted! Kudos to your landscaping/pool staff, too, we never saw them! Please think of us in the future, especially if you have an odd timeslot which cannot be filled; we are a short hour-ish away and would love to come back!!!!Warmly,Steven and Kelli K.

A Fantastic Week

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this house really know how to set the stage for a great vacation. In all the years that we've been visiting Palm Springs -- staying at rental properties and at the nicer hotels in town -- we have found the owners, Sean and Pete, to be the best hosts in town. They are thoughtful, friendly, fun and very generous. The house is very clean, beautifully landscaped, thoughtfully set up and well equipped for leisure. Extra towels? Check. Grill clean and ready to go? Check. Lounge chair in juuuust the right place when I get out of the pool? Check! We loved the neighborhood's location for our morning jog -- turn right and head toward the mountains. And for lunch/dinner/happy hour the house is between 90 seconds and 5 minutes away from every place you want to be in PS. Our 3 1/2 year old son loved the pool and can't stop talking about the inflatable orca that Sean and Pete had waiting in the pool for him! I mean, how cool is that???

Lovely and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We had avery nice stay over Christmas at the house. The house was clean and had every amenity you could want and need. The only disappointment was that the pool heater broke on Christmas Eve and of course could not be replaced until the day after Christmas. I still gave the home 5 stars because of Sean and Peter's quick action on our behalf to remedy the situation. They are wonderful people and really want you to enjoy your stay!

I also have to mention how beautiful the back yard is. Swimming in the pool was so quiet and relaxing I never wanted to get out. Thanks again for for all of your efforts in making our stay memorable.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Brenda, the sentiments are shared and I still feel bad about that darn heater! The new one had better last another 10 years!!! Five star guests, as well. ;)

Gorgeous, peaceful, convenient, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I booked this place to get away for a few nights, and we were not disappointed. The house is gorgeous inside and out, and the pool area is truly "zen". We felt comfortable and at home right away. We found everything to be clean and in excellent working condition and it was stocked with everything we needed (plus some extras). During our stay, we put both the kitchen and the outdoor BBQ to the test, and they fulfilled our needs perfectly. In terms of location, anything we needed was just a couple of minutes away. We even visited Moorten Botanical Garden, which is a short walk up the street and has the most interesting collection of cacti. Can't wait to stay here again.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this house, We have stayed at quite a few VRBO houses but I think this was the only one that did not have something broke or not working in it. The house was very clean with an open floor plan. Sean was always in communication with us when we had questions very good to deal with. The kitchen was well stocked with great appliances. Beds were comfy only thing is I like king beds( I knew we were getting a queen) Very dog friendly with a dog bed and bowls in the house. House looks just like the photos.Would go back for sure .

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

From our first contact with Sean to the day we left, he communicated with us promptly and professionally. Everything you have read about this incredible place is all true so rather than repeat what has already been said, I will focus on a few things that I thought REALLY stood out: The incredible mountain view from the pool, how well stocked and supplied the house was and the kitchen. The appliances, counters, and all things to do with the kitchen are top notch. If you enjoy being in the kitchen, you wont be disappointed. You can tell this place is a passion of the owners; not just a rental property. P.S. yes the beds are comfortable.
