Exceeded expectations!

To say that our stay at Mel's place 'exceeded expectations' is an understatement. From the comfy beds and linens to the steaming (pristine!) hot tub after a long day hiking, to toasty warm radiant heat, not to mention (but I will) having Mel at our beck and call for any and all recommendations or questions, our stay at Zen house was extraordinary. Oh, and the fire place was lovely too. The good-morning view of glowing mountains was positively spiritual. The place looks amazing in pics, but in real life it's even better! We could not have been more welcomed or warmly received. My husband and I visited Sedona in April and stayed at a local hotel; we came back this time with our adult children (and a significant other-in-law) and our stay at Mel's hands outdid April. Our last day we found a quick 2-hour hike outside our back door up Chimney Rock and happened across a Buddhist temple which was the most peaceful ending to our stay we could have wished for. This little hike should be a mandatory good-bye loop to anyone staying at Zen. This trip was the perfect ending to 2017 and hopefully a portent to the wonders that 2018 will bring. Hope we get to return sooner than later!

We came to Sedona to have a private, red rock hike-in wedding.. The hot tub, grill, telescope (with views!) and open kitchen allowed for comfortable and enjoyable relaxation-at-home times. It’s private with beautiful views, yet walkable to good restaurants and just a short drive to the main Sedona spots. We were only a 15 minute drive from grade A hiking (which, coming from NYC, is a dream commute). Mel was the most gracious and professional host, greeting us in person and offering lots of Sedona insider tips. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect host or place to stay during our wedding trip.

Modern and NEW!

The home is very modern and feels new. Everything that you may need is available and the location is outstanding. Mel is a very friendly and responsive host. She helped me sort out my itinerary and took care to make sure the house would be well suited for my trip with my family. She also arranged the house well to accommodate the needs of my family in advance of our arrival. The beds are extremely comfortable and the wireless internet is very fast. The hot tub is lovely to be in especially at night as you can see the stars and relax before bedtime. Thank you for a very special stay!

OMG the views!

We rented this house for a girls getaway weekend and it did not disappoint! We loved the house, the location, the views (omg the views! and the stars!), the price, and of course the town. We'd come back in a heartbeat! Anyone visiting Sedona should check out this place.

Spectacular Views!

The house is even nicer than the photos portray. Very clean, new modern and comfortable. We are a family if five and stayed comfortably on the main floor. The studio is on a lower floor with a totally separate entrance. This may suit some while not suiting others. However the upper floor had everything we needed and ended up not even using the studio. The views are spectacular and there are two separate areas to sit out on the deck/porch. The location is also very convenient with the main highway a 1-2 minute drive. Grocery stores including a Whole foods are not even a five minute minute drive. And very importantly Mel and his wife communicated promptly and were even able to accommodate us with an early check in. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

Loved the hot tub!

We had such a great time. Seeing bobcats and deer in the forest off the back deck. Enjoying the hot tub in the evenings. The colour on the rocks during sunrise. Great living room and table for entertaining friends and family. It was great having the downstairs apartment for my teenage sister.

Comfortable and CLEAN!

Definitely the place to stay in Sedona! Home is perfection and centrally located yet secluded and peaceful at the same time. Views are amazing, beds are comfortable and home is very clean. I highly recommend staying here! Thanks!!!

Mountain Views from the living room...GORGEOUS!

Zen House is gorgeous, modern and upscale. The view of the mountains from the living room is breathtaking. The kitchen is well stocked and we ended up cooking several times during our stay.
