Perfect home away from homr
I am a repeat guest at the Zen Garden, and there is a reason for it. It is the most perfect place to stay when travelling to the San Jose area for work. The location is ideal, accommodations are so comfortable and relaxing, and I can't say enough of the hosts, Jonno and Grace. This trip, we visited one evening for what I thought was about an hour, and to my surprise...we had visited for over three hours. They are so delightful and very giving of their time and attention to ensure a 5-star stay. I will stay with them again, every chance I get when travelling to the area. I recommend everyone to do the same!
We have been home for one day and already miss the Zen Garden and Guesthouse. Grace and Jonno have created a truly amazing unique rental in San Jose. They also CARE about their guests. We will definitely be back. Grace and Jonno- please say hi to your koi, hummingbirds, and dragonflys from us😀.

Thank you Sharyn and Larry for staying with us and for your wonderful review. Jonno and I, and all the other residents of our zen garden welcome you lovely guests back with open arms!
Beautiful property and amazing hosts!
I stayed in the guesthouse while on a work trip in San Jose. The location was great and within walking distance of many restaurants. The property was relaxing and absolutely beautiful. The guesthouse was exceptionally designed using exquisite craftsmanship and quality materials to make efficient use of the space while providing all the comforts of home. You can open the double doors of the guesthouse and expand the space outside where there are multiple areas to relax and enjoy the thoughtfully architected and landscaped garden. The neighborhood is so quiet, it's easy to forget that you are located in downtown San Jose. I cannot say enough about Grace and Jonno. They are remarkable hosts that go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know them and look forward to staying here again. This is truly a gem in downtown San Jose.
Maria was a lovely guest who was so respectful, charming , and delightful to chat with. We thoroughly enjoyed hosting her and getting to know her. We appreciated how very complimentary she was about our guest house, which she left as clean and tidy as when she checked in. Maria is a stellar guest for the Homeaway community!
Incredibly relaxing after a day at work
Handcrafted highest quality
Thank you for staying with us again and for another great review. All the best!!
Fantastic property. Great hosts. We will be back!!
A fantastic property with wonderful hosts. This amazing guesthouse was ideal for our visit to see our daughter during Parents' Weekend at Santa Clara University. The location was perfect, with numerous restaurants of all types within walking distance and only about two miles from campus.
The guesthouse itself was warm, inviting and every detail was accounted for. Grace and Jonno were incredibly welcoming and appropriately attentive. Thank you so much for allowing us to visit. We will be back.
Thank you, Martin and Nancy, for your wonderful and thoughtful review. It was an immense pleasure hosting you and meeting Frances. Thank you especially for staying with us and being such lovely guests. We look forward to seeing you again and to hopefully meet Frances' siblings. All the best!!
Quaint, wonderfully artistic and welcoming
We have stayed in many VRBOs and this is the first time we have taken time to write a review. Jonno and Grace are exceptional hosts. We had the privilege of getting to know them personally. They gave us space and they were helpful, gracious and responsive. We experienced unique and memorable parts of San Jose and surrounding area because of their helpful suggestions. We had the advantage of local knowledge.
The place we stayed in is small, but has everything we needed and more. The backyard is exquisite. We enjoyed our own private space situated below a beautiful lemon tree. We highly recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a quiet get away. This is a perfect location for day-time excursions. We are happy we rented a car to visit other close-by, unique places.
If we return to San Jose, we will happily stay here again.
