Wantana's place is perfect for a surf vacation. It is just across the road from a path to the beach. The garden is peaceful and filled with beautiful plants and some happy chickens. The casita is clean and as advertised. We used the kitchen to cook all our meals. The whole house is screened in and has fans so the temperature is comfortable. The AC in the bedrooms is really nice. The hammock is a great place to read and there is a drying rack and Jose to clean up and hang dry your gear before heading inside. Wantana's family made healthy spring rolls and she sent us on our way with some fresh fruit to eat on the flight home. I would highly recommend this quiet getaway in a great location in Guiones.
Dhamma garden was everything we were looking for in playa guiones. The proximity to the beach, local restaurants, surfboard rentals was all within a few minutes walk. The garden on the property was peaceful and relaxing. La casita was just enough space for 4. The host Wantana was more than accommodating and helpful in navigating and recommendations. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for simple accommodations with easy walking access to what playa guiones has to offer.
I’ve stayed in many places in Nosara-Playa Guiones, and the Dhamma Garden is, by far, the very best. Beautiful grounds with orchids and sweet-smelling jasmine, next to a small nature preserve, and as close to the beach as you get. Large, free-standing, 2-bedroom casita nicely furnished, gas stove in a beautiful tiled-kitchen, air-conditioning in both bedrooms, fans in all rooms, very easy to stay cool. The Dhamma Garden is an easy walk to grocery stores, the farmer’s market, good bars and restaurants. Wantana, the proprietor, is a wonderful host. She offers one of the world’s best massages, prepares magnificent Thai food at very reasonable prices, and sometimes even coconut ice cream. Wantana is very knowledgeable about the local area as well as being an expert on the healing arts.
