2 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms (Sleeps 4)
This house has been in our family for the past 12 years. Now owned by lifelong friends, with young families of our own, that escape to the desert when we need a break from the Pacific Northwest. The nearly guaranteed sunshine initially sold us but we have now fallen in love with the modern architecture, a chance to escape the city bustle, the golf courses and hiking and now the food scene. We were married in this awesome city and have spent many milestones here. We have watched Palm Springs evolve with a new 'hipper' vibe 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.

Located in a nice quiet upscale neighborhood
First off, I previously lived in Palm Springs and I am familiar with the area.
Overall, our stay at Zen House was just fine. The home has good sized common living space. The two bedrooms are relatively small and are supplied with lower profile beds. The pool is nice and the surrounding neighborhood is primarily upscale and quiet.
Our only issue was with the amount of light coming into the master bedroom. The room has a sliding glass door leading to the back yard and is covered with a semi-transparent white drapery. In the daytime, the afternoon sun pours into the room and it is hard to take a nap. At night, a neighboring perimeter light shines through the drapes into the room. I sent the owner a message suggesting blackout drapes for this room.
Perfect stay in Palm Springs and Zen house
Ideal location, modern conveniences and furnishings, close to grocery and downtown, quiet with everything we needed for our stay, except maybe a cocktail shaker, but the thermos pitcher worked! And the private backyard with a saltwater pool what a nice luxury. We’ll be back!
Paradise and Zen
As soon as we walked onto the property we felt at home. One of the best equipped rentals we have ever stayed at (full size toiletries, seasonings, books, movies, CDs,etc!) Awesome kitchen and a great outdoor grill. We loved the outdoor area and spent many sunny mornings and afternoons by the pool -and several nights in the hot tub. ;) There was even an adorable scrapbook of nearby attractions collected from previous guests! All communication was incredibly prompt. If anything we suggest getting a new lockbox and some reusable food storage containers.
Gem in the desert
We love this house and have stayed here many times in the last decade. It's a great location and a very special property with privacy, views, and low wind.
Truly a gem in Palm Springs
One of our best vacations yet in Palm Springs. Everything was absolutely perfect. Fantastic property, amenities, and location. Can’t wait to come back.
My husband and I found this house to be the perfect vacation home both in size and comfort. We loved keeping the glass doors open to view the pool and the mountains beyond. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking meals at home and grilling. We picked Meyers lemons and oranges for our evening cocktails by the fire pit.
Alexandria was the perfect host, quickly responding to any of our questions or needs.
We greatly appreciated her attentiveness and concern.
