Thank you so much for being here with us and especially taking the time to write a great review. Everyone always asks or wonders about breakfast and what is offered and fears for things in plastic wrappers. Our Hostess and Housekeeper, Sherri, actually makes the most amazing Cranberry Orange Scones that are Gluten Free and serves them with some Lemon Curd from England that Trader Joe's carries. We always have fruits and Greek Yogurts available with some thin bagels and the cream cheese has chopped veggies too. So glad you enjoyed staying here with us! Cheers.. Eddie, Dale & Sherri

The staff here at Zen Yard are warm and friendly and have taken the time to make this place special. Besides the generous pool and hot tub area (not typical of a b&b!), there are many other outdoor areas for quiet reading or socializing. The neighborhood is quiet and just 15 minutes from downtown. The hosts are always present at breakfast but available by text or phone for anything you need throughout the day. This is a great place and a great value.

We found a relaxing space in the midst of urban Phoenix. Flagstaff room is round the back of the property, with a comfy bed and great wet room. The continental style breakfast includes plenty of fruit and also homemade cakes. The gardens are lovely, with several quiet spots to sit, and also the pool which was warm enough to swim in. Eddie and Dale were helpful with directions, where to eat and were happy to stop and chat to find out how we were getting on. Would definitely stay agin if we return to Phoenix.

Salt water pool? Fabulous. Privacy? You bet. Friendly, knowledgeable hosts who know when to share and when to return to whatever they were doing? Absolutely. Eddie was funny and warm, breakfast was simple but filling and the coffee was good. Listening to the songbirds while floating in that pool eased away the stress of days on the road. You can bet we will be back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are good, but the Cowboy Casita, which we didn't get this time, was a bit large...

Zenyard was lovely. The room was fantastic and the breakfast in the morning was superb which we didn't expect it to be of such a high quality. Great value. Would very much recommend a stay at the Zenyard!!!

My second stay with Eddie and Dale at Zen Yard was an utterly delightful experience. I look forward to returning! The overall atmosphere is beautiful, peaceful, and nourishing. The hosts are attentive, unobtrusive, and entirely gracious. I am sure that anyone who chooses to stay here will be far more than satisfied. The salt water pool is an added bonus on an already near perfect home away from home. I can imagine making a trip to Phoenix just for the experience of Zen Yard.

Green Features: Zen Yard has achieved Silver status in environmentally-friendly practices - an added plus to an already wonderful place.
