“Warm and friendly - almost home from home”

Where do I start? It was a Christmas break and I was meeting my daughters in laws for the first time. Shelter from the Storm Villas was our meeting place. Firstly, the directions provided were superb to get to the Villas. Get a 4x4 otherwise you are not going to make it. There is also a car port for the cars. The villas are perched up on the side of a mountain over looking the Pacific and the lush green jungle. Each villa is very private and you wouldn't even know that other guests are there. The pool area and the well stocked bar are communal. We actually cooked our Christmas dinner in the bar area where there is a barbecue for the use by guests. The villas were very well decorated and well equipped if you want to do a little bit of cooking, everything you need is there.

Then there was Daryl and Donna who own the place and were most welcoming and friendly. They remained discrete yet were extremely informative and know the area very well. I would certainly go back and would recommend this place to anyone.

“Spectacular!! A true gem!”
Reviewed 18 January 2016 for a stay in November 2015

We had such an amazing vacation experience at Shelter from the Storm! Donna and Daryl are tremendous hosts and know everything there is to know about the local area. They have created a spectacular oasis near Dominical. The views are incredible and wildlife surrounds the villas. I highly recommend Shelter from the Storm and hope to visit this beautiful country and Dominical again soon.
