My wife and I spent the better part of a week at Shelter from the Storm in July. We wanted to find a spot slightly off the beaten path, but located close to several beaches to explore, and this spot fit the bill. It is up the mountain off the main highway so that traffic noise is minimal and up... More

I had the privilege to stay at SFTS twice. The first time was in a bit of a family emergency the second was as we were passing through Dominical. Both times it was first class. They have awesome accommodations and fun in the Rancho with Daryl and Donna and the other guests. Donna even set us up at a great... More

We stayed at Shelter from the Storm for 9 weeks from mid March to mid May and it was definitely the best place we have ever stayed. You won't want for a single thing. Daryl and Donna are the ultimate hosts. They are always checking that you have everything you need. The location is beyond perfect! We stayed in La... More

Shelter from the Storm was everything we hoped for and more! We loved the location, the Monkey House, Donny & Daryl and all that the area had to offer. It was one of the most relaxing vacations we've ever had and we will most definitely be back. You felt like you were at home right in the jungle. We can't... More

I wandered into the fabulous Shelter from the Storm because I was curious as to what is at the end of the beautifully lit driveway in the middle of nowhere jungle where jasmine and ylang ylang beckon a welcome. WOW I was shocked in awe that folks could create such exquisite surroundings in the middle of a jungle. It is... More

We stayed at the Shelter from the storm for eight nights in Feb/March 2014. It was our first time visiting Costa Rica. All we can say about Shelter from the storm is WOW! What a incredible place! Donna and Daryl have really created a special place to stay while in the Dominical area. There isn't a detail that is overlooked.... More

Shelter From the Storm was on our bucket list for a while, and we finally got a chance to stay there on a last minute trip. Daryl and Donna have really put a lot of love in supplying the villas with everything you could possible need ---from good CD's to Costa Rican snacks and coffee. They apologized for not having...

I stayed at Shelter from the Storm with my partner in November this year. We arrived as travellers with no connections in Costa Rica, and left with two new friends. Donna and Daryl were the most wonderful, friendly, funny hosts. We can't wait to visit again, and to take our other friends along with us. If you're looking for somewhere... More

My husband and I stayed here the first week of June 2013. The day we arrived in San Jose the sun was shining and the drive to Shelter from the Storm was a great way to start our trip. Donna and Daryl had provided us with great directions, we had no trouble finding their wonderful place. Upon arrival they were... More

This was our second trip to Costa Rica and our first to the Dominical area. After staying at SFTS hopefully it will not be the last. For 2 couples traveling together, we rented Villa Las Rocas ( 2 separate units in the same building) and could not have been happier. Each unit allowed for separate entrances, sleeping and patio, but... More
