Michael St. Pierre

Director of Business Development

About Me

Hello!  My name is Michael St. Pierre. I'm the Business Development Director for Grand Welcome of Palm Springs.  Prior to joining Grand Welcome, Palm Springs, I have been in the vacation rental management platform and overall hospitality industry the past 26 years.

Over this time, I have supported many homeowners in new program alignment, owner relations, day to day operations in guest services, housekeeping, engineering, project management and an overall jack of all when it comes to this industry.

My business development and owner relations expertise mean I can understand where an owner is coming from and understand the day-to-day operations to assure long-term success to your home away from home!

What I Love About Palm Springs

When I’m not busy working with current owners or prospective owners, I enjoy spending time with my six children and being actively involved in my community coaching sports and getting out hiking and mountain biking! But hands down my favorite sport is soccer, and love to catch any events hosted at the Empire Polo Club.

Justin Marché

General Manager

About Me

I'm Justin Marché, and I've been immersed in the hospitality industry for over 15 years now. Throughout my journey, I've had the opportunity to travel across various states, but Southern California will always be my home.

Growing up surrounded by hardworking entrepreneurs instilled a strong work ethic in me from a young age. I pursued my passion by earning a degree in Business Administration and Hospitality Management at Northern Arizona University & Le Cordon Bleu. Armed with knowledge from college and a career in the hotel industry, I took a deep dive into STRs and have been excelling ever since. I find immense satisfaction in tackling the day-to-day challenges of the STR industry, helping owners maximize their revenue and enhance the overall guest experience.

What I Love About Palm Springs

Outside the world of hospitality, you'll find me indulging in hobbies like golfing with friends and producing music in my home studio. I have a deep love for travel and cherish spending quality time with my family.

Cynthia "Cindy" Nesello


About Me

Hey, I'm Cindy Nesello, born and raised in San Diego. My love for travel began at an early age, in college, during my time as an exchange student in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I lived in Florianopolis, Brazil, for 22 years, where I raised three awesome daughters and ran three restaurants and a boutique hotel. I also opened an eco-sport facility with a community cabin that slept up to 40 people. It was a blast!

In 2016, I returned to the United States and now live in Coachella Valley. My passion for travel lead me to pursue a career in hospitality and vacation rental management.

I love being apart of the Grand Welcome Palm Springs family. Getting to serving others and make people smile, is something I enjoy doing each and every day.

What I Love About PaLM SPRINGS

When I’m not managing properties, I love exploring the surrounding deserts and mountains of Coachella Valley.
