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.
Wantana's Dhamma Garden is a magical place. From my arrival after a late flight to the minute I left 10 days later, I felt welcomed and included and cared for. Please be aware: this is not the place to stay if you are looking for a "party scene." The vibe is very quiet and respectful. The pictures are very accurate. In fact, the studio I rented was actually larger than I expected. It is in a great location vis a vis the town, restaurants and most importantly, the surfing beach. Wantana is a terrific host: she's friendly, she's funny and she gives an amazing massage. She's also an accomplished Thai chef and I was lucky enough to eat her food 3 times while I was there. Wantana creates a community with the people who are staying on this property. She introduced us all to each other and we became friends. I could not have asked for a better Airbnb experience and now would want to stay here any time I travel to Nosara. I highly recommend this establishment for quiet, respectful and spiritual guests.
