Our stay at Shelter From The Storm was amazing. Donna & Daryl have done an excellent job with the villas. We stayed in the Monkey House which is high up, tucked away and very clean and well furnished. Everything at SFTS seems to be very new and in great working order (which seems to be a rarity in Costa Rica). The drive from San Jose is long but if you are mentally prepared for it ahead of time you are going to be fine. A 4x4 is needed to get up to the property but once you arrive you will be rewarded with an amazing ocean view, rancho/bar area, pool, and a plethora of natural wildlife which surrounds the area. 3-4 of the days we were there we watched a sloth on a tree right in front of the Rancho which was very cool! The monkeys come through every morning, and afternoon (we somehow missed them), but other guests staying in the villas had seen them almost every day!
All in all, a great trip to remember. We will definitely be back... Thank you Daryl & Donna!!!More
