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

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!

Absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

This hidden gem is private and absolutely beautiful. The home is decorated in modern décor with high quality furnishings. The back yard allows for privacy and is beautifully maintained. The pool is perfect size and we enjoyed sunning in the water loungers. The owners were amazing to work with. Sean and Pete are committed in making sure that your stay is enjoyable. We were approved to take our pooch and the home is fully fenced to avoid a breakout. My husband and I will use this as our home base whenever we visit Palm Springs. We HIGHLY recommend it.

Thanks for all your great recommendations guys.

We loved everything about this property! Besides the beautifully decorated and luxurious interior, the outdoor space was amazing! We spent the days lounging in the very private pool and spa area, and the evenings grilling and relaxing by the fire pit, all surrounded by superb landscaping. The house was stocked with all the amenities we needed and more. The location was very convenient, just a quick walk to the store, close to shopping and hiking, and great views. We will definitely be returning!

Perfect House

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd rental from Sean & Pete and I do not think we would rent from anyone else in Palm Springs. These guys are great to work with and always a quick reply. Now to the house as my wife said "PERFECT" Zen 2 is decorated great and has excellent flow through the house.You feel very comfortable and relaxed in the house. We loved every aspect of the home: pool and hot tub, huge master ensuite, great kitchen, fireplace and media room. This home is amazing. Zen 2 is landscaped very nicely with a citrus tree to boot for the fresh juice,cannot forget the firepit in the back yard. It was a great time of the year to use it too. Plenty of amenities and supplies. Located a very short walk from Vons groceries and a short walk to some nice hikes. You will not be disappointed.
