Wow! Was our reaction as soon as we walked in the front gate. The salt water pool, the hot tub, the magical lighting of the gardens at night.... It was all so wonderful. Dale and Eddie have thought of everything to make staying at the Zen Yard the most wonderful experience. Our room was beautifully appointed. The patio was a... More

We have been staying at Zen Yard for years. We arrived there first as winter visitors from Pennsylvania intending to escape the cold, then finding a relaxing haven and warm hosts as well. After relocating to Tucson a few years ago, our stays at Zen Yard have continued for trips to the "big city." Dale and Eddie have been welcoming... More

It has been over two months since my husband and I stayed at Zen Yard (My absolute favorite Go-to place to stay in Phoenix). I got busy and didn't write a review but I kept remembering that I wanted to. The place is peaceful and comfortable and lovely. The people are kind and friendly and respectful. The salt water pool...

Lovely and relaxing stay! I was greeted by Sherri in the morning, who offered up breakfast, some wonderful conversation, and genuine warmth. Eddie and Dale were also a great time! Along with the pool, hummingbirds, and green lights that beautifully highlighted the space. Very much appreciated the ambience and the good company here.

I travel to Phoenix regularly on business and the ZenYard is the first place I check. Eddie, Dale, Sherri & Michael are attentive, the rooms spotless and the atmosphere delightful. The salt water swimming pool is in full shade in the afternoon, which is a bonus during Phoenix summers. It is in a residential neighborhood and very quiet at night.

Can't wait to go back. Everything was wonderful! Small oasis in the middle of a busy world. Peaceful and relaxing, beautifully decorated. Places to relax everywhere, inside and out. This bed and breakfast is well worth it. They have a continental breakfast and for a small fee you can have a large breakfast, well worth the money. Honor system on... More

Michael was there to greet me and my friend, which was great. He showed us around and was very hospitable. However, the owners never came to the property, or said hello. I'm new to bed and breakfasts but the previous ones I've stayed at felt more homey and inviting than this one. There were cameras everywhere, which I understand for... More

Wow we are disappointed too, and not sure what was not homey about the stay, we try to make everything as comfortable as possible for everyone who stays with us. Our policies for payments are pretty clear and upfront, there is a 50% deposit and the remaining balance is due 3 days prior to arrival. This has worked well for... More

If only I could find the words to describe how amazingly wonderfully breath-taking the stay at the Zen Yard was (I'm not afraid to try.) I could hardly bring myself to leave. If serenity and clarity seem like fairly foreign to your vocabulary drop by and just see yourself - learn a thing or two. Eddie and Dale are always... More

Being last minute we call the Zen Yard and hoped for a room. We got in and had the place to ourselves. which was very relaxing, took a swim and nap before our event that evening. Just like being home but, home is 50 miles south and didn't have to drive after a couple. It's just so well situated in... More
