“Very Peaceful”
Reviewed 5 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The house is really nice and comes with all the little extras such as books, magazines, games, wood for the fire pit, cooking spices, star chart, telescope, and binoculars. Every part of the house is great. There is a front porch that sits on a terrace with a great view of the sunset and the many rabbits and birds that hang out in the area surrounding the house. The hot tub is a great spot for star gazing, and the side patio is good for outdoor eating and relaxing. The house is also really close to Joshua Tree Park. Great for a peaceful weekend or gathering with friends/family.

“Gorgeous house in fab location”
Reviewed 20 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We recently spent three nights at Zen House and wish it could have been longer. Stunning location so close to the park, beautifully appointed and immaculately clean.
We arrived to find welcome muffins from Vera, who turned out to be incredibly lovely and helpful in posting on my (rather expensive!!!) earrings I'd left at the house...what a superstar!
Would highly recommend.
The only downside was the sheer curtains in the first bedroom: thicker ones would be better in terms of privacy (large glass doors onto inner hall) and light...
Otherwise it was just perfect.

“No matter how stessed you are, you won't leave the Zen House that way!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed at the Zen House in June 2014 with my 2 grown sons. It was amazing and everything was perfect. Vera does all the "small things" that make you feel like you're visiting the home of someone in your family. I came here VERY stressed out and left full of the Zen from this house. Both my sons also loved it here. Additionally, I am a bit of a clean-a-holic, and was so impressed with the cleanliness of Vera's home. Very peaceful, very private, very beautiful - a lovely experience!

“Soulful and Restful”
Reviewed 25 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

Spent a month in the Zen House. It's beautifully designed, well appointed and stocked for the well-being of guests. Tucked into a rocky hillside with views to the east, north and south. Centrally located to town and the park. Comfortable beds and bedding, lush linens, bathrobes for hot tub use, teas, spices, oils. Attentive management. A lovely space and environment.
