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.

Great remodel, location, awesome pool and hot tub

  • 5 of 5

This was an oasis of refuge much needed. During the hustle bustle of pre-Christmas when everyone it out scrambling to get those packages mailed in time, this place was ideal. We just wish we could have stayed another week or so! The first several days we did take care of that with much more ease than anticipated. The P.O. along with World Market and other little shops and several good restaurants, (Native Foods and Giuseppe's among them) were conveniently located at SmokeTree which has a back way only a mile and 1/2 away. Downtown has some good shops too and is just as close. One trip down Palm Desert way to big time shopping is only 25 minutes away. This roomy mid-century remodel made it easy to spread out the goods to wrap, pack and seal and with short to no lines at P.O. so our 4 boxes of goodies to loved ones were sent with joy. Then we could RELAX, enjoy the great pool, in the very private yard, hot tubs at night, dining outside at restaurants, Mesquite golf and many walks with our little dog on the Taquitz Creek Arroyo. Also, very close and we met many friendly Palm Springs resident dog walkers. And, the very short walk just several houses toward town into the Desert Botanicals is lovely . What a great home away from home. Again, wish we could have stayed longer to include the recommended Desert Hot Springs and Joshua Tree (the latter which we have always included in past trips, not to be missed). Next Year! The only recommendation would be a couple of updated skillets, a coffee grinder (otherwise kitchen seems well stocked) , a thick hall rug toward master and kitchen on the cool concrete floors. Although realize that's why it's extra pet friendly. We also loved the float mats in the heated pool as the high temps in our early to mid-Dec were around 80 every day with cool desert nights. Had fun with large CD collection and books. Comfortable home that I imagine stays much cooler than most in the hotter months due to it's exceptional remodel.

Owner's Response: Sarah! Wow, thank you! Such a fantastic and thorough review. We appreciate you as guests as much as you appreciate our home. 😊 And, noted on the skillets and the mysteriously disappearing coffee grinder, hah!...consider it done! Happy New Year and have a fantastic 2018! Sean

Great Experience!

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!

Clean, comfy, quiet

  • 5 of 5

We could have stayed much longer at this home - it was clean, comfortable, quiet and well located. The kitchen was adequately appointed for daily breakfasts and the occasional preparations of a dinner for four. It works well for two couples, but to know in advance: one of the rooms has an en suite bathroom, while those staying in the other bedroom have to cross the living area to access the 2nd bathroom. Not an issue for us so we'd go back in a heartbeat!

Tranquil oasis with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, carefree stay at Sean and Pete's house. We spent plenty of time outside lounging poolside and grilling, but every inch of the house was cozy and comfortable. We found the house in perfect condition and fully stocked with all of the comforts of home, from plenty of plush towels to every kitchen gadget you can dream of. The house offers lots of privacy and peace, but it's less than a 5 minute drive to all the action of downtown. The neighborhood behind the house is very walkable/bikeable and worth a stroll. There is a hidden cactus botanical garden walking distance to the house and plenty of hiking trails a short driving distance away. Perfect house to immerse yourself into the Palm Springs lifestyle. We can't wait to go back.
