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.

Beautiful home in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

This spacious, comfortable, and open-feeling home is tastefully furnished in a classic mid-century modern style. The house is well-designed and has all the latest appliances. The owners have taken great care to provide for their guests' comfort and enjoyment, including leaving two bicycles for guests' use. The house has a very convenient and quiet location for accessing local hiking trails as well as exploring the restaurants of downtown Palm Springs. We enjoyed the heated pool and spa and the professionally landscaped backyard, even when the temperatures were a little cool for February in Palm Springs. The home has a vibe of refined relaxation, and our only regret was that we only had time to stay for one week. Sean, one of the owners, was extremely responsive and helpful with any questions we had about the house and the whole Palm Springs and Joshua Tree National Park area. We would highly recommend this home as a great base for exploring the area, and if we're lucky enough we hope to return to this home soon.

We had a five star stay at a five star condo! SEAN and Peter have a perfect location, only minutes from downtown Palm Springs, close to grocery stores, walking trails and walking distance to Moorten Botanical Gardens. The surrounding neighborhood provided a glimpse into the most breathtaking properties, each one professionally landscaped. The condo had all the amenities you could ever want, a great kitchen with every possible gadget, relaxing entertainment space and comfortable beds for a great nights sleep. The pool was an oasis and a must have for the record breaking temps, our last day 101degrees! We used the fire pit in the evening and the outdoor grill. All in all, we could not have asked for a better vacation!! Hopefully, we’ll be back. Oh and Sean was a great host, getting back to us in record time with a few questions we had. Thanks SEAN and Pete!!

Overall an excellent property. We appreciated the little things this house had to offer. Our stays in Palm Springs are always low key and this house fit us well. Large living area, plenty of room outside by the pool, heated jacuzzi (a must) and well stocked kitchen. At night, the landscaping and pool lights were a nice touch and appreciate the owners putting on a star filled evening for us. The washer and dryer were also a great amenity.

Con is the house is off of a major street and the driveway and traffic are tricky. Loved this house and will consider for another stay.

Owner's Response: Glad that you loved the property but bummed to see our first 4-star review in the last five years instead of a 5, and the first to mention the road...there is a first for everything.

Superb rental in a perfect PS location!

  • 5 of 5

Really stellar. No wind. Close to so many incredible hiking and biking trails. Easy walk to coffee (Koffi), breakfast, bars, music, etc. Or cook in. The house is clean, perfectly furnished, well appointed and has a great vibe. The spa is a huge bonus at the end of a day of hiking- and, sitting by the pool is a treat. We will definitely be back- hopefully annually!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We reserved The Mesa house because we were attending a wedding at The Parker, the location of the house was great! Many places to eat close by. Hot tub, pool and backyard area were great and were used everyday. The house has plenty of towels, extra pillows and blankets. Washer and dryer was nice to have in the home as well!!

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Zen House. It was wonderful! The house is a perfect getaway. It's also close to town making it easy to walk around or ride bikes. We will definitely be back! Thanks Sean!
