This was my third time staying at the Self Discovery Center. Communication with Leela was super, loved the sunny red queen room. Location is wonderful as is the neighborhood. A peaceful spot in a fast-paced city.
Leela was very forgiving of my 6-hour delay in getting to the B and B, showing up at 8 pm instead of 2 pm. She gave a thorough tour of the house and security that was easy to remember (you can lock your own door). The bedroom and bathroom were spotless, the linens washed, and towels artfully arranged. There was also a space heater which was handy for the night.
I should add that the room is incredibly spacious, can be filled with light (if you opt to push the curtains aside), the bed, large and comfortable, and the wifi was easy to attain (given that I have the world's worst wifi catcher, this means the wifi connection is amazing).
Leela made sure that I knew I could access the kitchen and eats fruits and cereal. During the last day of my stay, I utilized the washer and dryer which was a definite plus (and included in the package) and had no problems in using them (i.e. no soggy clothes in the dryer, no broken dryers, etc.). She and As. were very responsive to my questions and texts and in helping me figure stuff out (in general).
Extremely nice, accommodating place. The host was great, very considerate. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The neighborhood is very nice with wonderful walking paths nearby for getting out, and some good restaurants close by. This bnb is also a guest house affiliated with the spiritual center next door, and the whole place is infused with a charged, yet peaceful energy that most, I'm sure, will find quite soothing. A wonderful respite, either as a stop along your journey, or a destination in its own right.
Lovely people and a lovely place.
I really enjoyed the weekend in this beautiful location. The house is in a very quiet area, parallel to Ponce de Leon. All shops (Little 5 Corner), restaurants and bars are in walking distance. The host was very friendly. The room was spacious with great views to the park and trees. Free Wifi. Breakfast vegetarian, but with a great variety. The spiritual music in the morning at breakfast was relaxing and a great start into the day.
I can really recommend staying there and will definitely come back.
I had a great stay in the Self Discovery Center! The house was beautiful, the room was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and I slept quite well!! Deedee called the day before my stay - she was very kind and was able to provide advice on public transportation to the house from the airport, which was very easy (MARTA ride to Midtown, then a quick cab ride to the house). The location was great - directly across the street from a beautiful park and very quiet. I walked to the little five points area for lunch and coffee, and had a nice time exploring.
Most everything about my stay was exactly as I had expected. The only surprise was that there was a fair amount of activity around 7am - chimes, music, incense, chanting. While the music was pleasant, I was feeling a bit jet-lagged (having come from California) and it was a little early for me. I don't know if this type of activity is typical -- I forgot to ask! But, if so, it might be something to keep in mind for those looking to sleep in. :)
Thank you Deedee and the Self Discovery Center for sharing your beautiful and peaceful space!
The room was clean and exactly as advertised. The neighborhood is very, very quiet and I got a great night's sleep. Getting my keys was a no-hassle affair, and all-in-all I enjoyed my stay here.
We were looking for a clean, quiet place to stay while in Atlanta for the weekend, and we got exactly that and more. Comfortable bed, hot shower, great breakfast spread and beautiful surroundings in Druid Hills. Couldn't have asked for better. Thanks, Anandini!
This was an attractive, clean and spacious room in a nice house in a great neighborhood. The house is located in Druid Hills which is a great neighborhood and walking distance to Virginia Highlands. There is free wifi and the breakfast was very healthy, tasty and filling. I practiced yoga with the host in the morning which I needed as I was very stiff and tired from a difficult week of training. Would highly recommend this room, house and the self healing awareness center to any travelers.
The host canceled my reservation 4 days before arrival.
