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 manager

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.

Wish I would have found the Zen Modern Home sooner!

  • 5 of 5

I planned a rather last minute trip to Palm Springs just after Memorial Day. The entire process from initial e-mail inquiries to final booking only took a couple of hours. Sean was prompt with his response and provided directions and instructions to the house that same day. The Zen Modern Home was easy to find, the house was spectacularly clean (kitchen supplies, furniture, and bedding especially) and the layout and décor were very stylish yet comfortable. The pool and outdoor area were so lovely and relaxing that my dog and I ended up hanging out at the house the entire stay--enjoying some much-needed down time. The neighborhood behind the home was quiet and great for strolls with the pup and the completely fenced yard provided multiple safe lounging areas during the day. The umbrellas by the pool and the pergola were super helpful in providing shade, as it was starting to get up into the triple digits during our stay. Overall, I cannot say enough positive things about this property. Sean and Peter were responsive, helpful, and personable. The property was well-maintained and very thoughtfully furnished, including all the little details that make a stay more inviting and welcoming. I wish I would have found the Zen Modern Home sooner. Thanks so much for sharing your home with us!

The Perfect Zen Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Zen Modern Home!! The home and yard are beautiful and serene with ample privacy due to the mature greenery in the backyard. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We loved be so close to restaurants and shops without the hustle and bustle of staying in one of the big hotels nearby. This is a gorgeous home that won't disappoint. Unplug, unwind, and enjoy!

Beautiful retreat under the San Jacinto Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This house was a perfect place for us to stay with our small dog.

There has been great attention to detail with numerous great spaces created throughout the property. The owners are easy to contact, friendly and responsive.

The location was ideal for us, very close to some of the best hiking trails at the southern end of Palm Springs (including a great dog-friendly hiking trail that we could tackle daily). The neighbourhood behind the property is great for walking. The property is a short drive into downtown and to grocery stores.

The property is clean, bright and open as well as very private. The back rooms all open up onto a beautiful landscaped yard with palm trees, cactuses, a pomegranate tree and bougainvillea. You wake up to see the mountains and palm trees from the main bedroom. The pool and yard are well-maintained with lots of great places to sit and read either in the shade or sun- with plenty of towels. There is a fire pit and spa which we did not use but the pool was great.

The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking allowing us to dine in most nights very happily.

We definitely want to come back here!

Perfect Relaxing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you enter the home you feel welcomed. The owners considered all the amenities to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The interior and exterior of the house has been remolded, and done very well. We can definitely see ourselves retiring in a home just like this!

The location is close enough to Downtown that you can ride the bikes or Uber for a few bucks. Sean and Pete put together a welcome book, with recommendations for restaurants, places to go and things to do…Nice touch. We loved the backyard, super relaxing from the hot tub, pool, fire pit and outside dining area.

Thanks Sean and Pete for making our vacation memorable. We will be back!

A M A Z I N G! This is Shangri-la.

  • 5 of 5

These guys did a fantastic job of anticipating your every need. The property is sleek & modern, yet welcoming and fun... super clean, beautifully landscaped....and my favorite, very private. We spent most of our time in the pool and cooking. Sunsets and sunrises are both awesome when viewed from all over the property. We celebrated 17 years together here with a 4 day getaway and we will be back for 18!! Highly recommend this desert paradise. We hated to leave!!!
