Holiday Rental House
'Shelter From the Storm' is a group of three villas (including the owner's house) and an efficiency apartment, perched on a five acre mountainside point, approximately 60 meters above the Pacific Ocean; high enough to give dramatic views (think Big Sur in California) of the coastline to the Osa Peninsula but low enough to hear the waves breaking on the rocks below. Perfect for family reunions or group vacations, Shelter from the storm consists of two luxurious villas and a charming efficiency apartment tucked into the jungle and oriented to maximize privacy while allowing for the 'outside living' so popular in this part of the world. Villa Las Rocas, designed as a two level, two bedroom, two bath with separate entrances to accommodate two to six people.

Perfect for family reunions or group vacations, Shelter from the storm consists of two luxurious villas and a charming efficiency apartment tucked into the jungle and oriented to maximize privacy while allowing for the 'outside living' so popular in this part of the world. Villa Las Rocas, designed as a two level, two bedroom, two bath with separate entrances to accommodate two to six people. The lower unit, Baja Las Rocas sleeps two in a luxurious suite with a kitchenette and private patio with an outstanding ocean view. The upper unit, Las Rocas Arriba, sleeps two in a king-size bed in the bedroom with room for another two in the queen-size murphy bed in the indoor salon. Villa La Cuesta is a one bedroom/one bath home with Murphy-bed and will accommodate two to four people. If your group is larger, an additional luxury studio apartment (The Monkey House) is available to sleep 2 people. All residences exhibit locally handcrafted custom hardwood windows, doors, furniture, cabinetry, throughout. Just TWO MINUTES off the beautiful paved coastal highway and less than ten minutes to Dominical to the north, or Uvita to the south, 'Shelter from the Storm' offers the peace and privacy you expect on your tropical vacation but near enough to the nightlife, abundant restaurants, shopping and recreation facilities to satisfy even the most active traveler. We would be happy to assist in booking horseback rides along the beach or to beautiful waterfalls, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, fishing trips, zip-line rides, canopy tours, birdwatching tours, or hiking at Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refuge. A relaxing massage or gourmet dinner can also be booked in the privacy of your villa. Rental car pick-up can also be arranged if so desired. All of the villas enjoy fresh ocean breezes during the day and even cooler mountain breezes every night, although all have air-conditioning and ceiling fans in every room. All residences include kitchen facilities and all electrical appliances, ceiling fans, air-conditioning, phones, Egyptian cotton sheets and towels, CD players with a library of hundreds of discs available and 2 ipod docking stations. Why travel all over the country to search for wildlife when, from our living room we see not only monkeys (both howlers and white face) but, also sloths, coati, beautiful butterflies, and dozens of species of birds including hummingbirds, toucans, toucanet, parrots, soaring falcons and of course, pelicans. Cast your gaze to the ocean to see passing dolphins and during migrating season (November to March) it is not unusual to see whales breaching in Coronado Bay. We are located within ten minutes of at least five pristine beaches from the world class surf breaks of Playa Dominical to virtually deserted stretches of Playa Hermosa to the protected waters of Playa Ballena, probably the most perfect swimming beach on the Pacific coast. Or, if you prefer, enjoy relaxing around the ocean view pool lounging on our locally handcrafted teak outdoor furniture. Take advantage of our spacious bamboo covered bar/barbecue rancho area with huge stainless steel gas grill, stereo, honor bar, refrigerator, bathroom, full dining facilities, reading library,hammocks and extensive video library , streaming television and high speed fiber optic wireless internet if you want to bring your laptop.
