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.

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!!!

We booked Zen Modern for a three night getaway. The home was just perfect and even nicer than the photos. It was definitely spacious enough for our party of three (and two dogs). The first thing my daughter wanted to do was jump in the pool, which we did! The backyard was so peaceful and we loved the amount of shade the pool had in the mornings and evenings. We spent a lot of time out there and even watched the bats go insect hunting at night. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook our meals. They even had dog bowls! We also loved that the refrigerator had a water and ice feature as well. The home was super clean and there were plenty of towels (even pool towels). Sean was awesome throughout the booking and stay of the rental. I wouldn't hesitate for a second before booking this vacation home again. If you are considering a rental, look no more. This is the one you want. From comfy beds to amazing designer touches, this home has it all. Thank you Sean for another amazing stay! We will definitely be back.

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. ;)
