About Peter

Sean and I both grew 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 II' we try to capture all of the above with simple, stylish, artful design.

Peter purchased this house in 2013

Why Peter chose California Desert

For us it's all about style, function and privacy.

Zen indeed!

This place and Sean was fantastic! The house is gorgeous and super clean! Literally comes with everything you need to just relax and chill. The water feature in the saltwater pool my favorite feature by far, so relaxing! We will definitely be back, hopefully soon!

So glad we found this place

  • 5 of 5

When my family and I entered the property we were all very impressed. There was a small but very nice and very clean pool and Jacuzzi. It also had very nice outdoor lounging areas. Upon entering the actual house we fell in love with the style and size as well as the décor. We pretty much new then that we found a winner. The only thing we had to buy was food everything else was good to go, very well stocked. I did want to say thank you again to Peter and Sean for allowing our family into your home. It can be challenging sometimes to find a place that will allow two adults, two boys and three very special dogs in there home. This seemed to be a non issue with these guys. We have always loved Palm Springs and plan on having our own modern mid century home some day. So far now we plan on re visiting Zen Modern Home II in the near future.

Little Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Out of all the places we have stayed at in Palm Springs and the surrounding area this by far is the best home for 2 couples we have ever rented. The house is very well equipped with everything you will need for your stay and tastefully decorated inside and out. There is a binder with all kinds of suggestions for things to do and places to go which we found very useful. The outdoor spaces are by far the best thing about the home and lets face it is the main reason we all head to the area is to enjoy the great weather and be outside. The pictures really don't do the property justice. I would definitely recommend the house to anyone looking and will definitely be back.

One last thing a definite must for dining out is The Tropicale restaurant and bar amazing food and atmosphere.

5 Palm Spring rental EVER

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I just returned from a week at this marvelous getaway and we were so sad to leave! We've stayed in 6 rental properties in the PS area over the last 2 years and this was by far the best!! Any questions we had before/during/after were quickly addressed by the owners Pete & Sean, who were so great to work with...and the house! Oh the house...and the husband kept remarking about how the outdoor furniture was the best he'd ever seen. This one is a keeper on our list!

Great Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Just a couple of golfers visiting palm springs for the first time - the house is perfect for a few golf buddies to get away - the house layout allows for privacy while still providing awesome access to most golf locations, grocery stores, restaurants, etc. Pete and Sean were responsive and always available to answer questions - they even provided great advice on picking places to play and even left a few discount coupons for us. The property is very private and relaxing - we are going to make it an annual trip - looking forward to going back. you can't beat the location - easy access to everything - including the airport. absolutely perfect!
