We recently returned from our honeymoon to Costa Rica. Our stay at Shelter From the Storm was amazing. The owners, Daryl and Donna, make you feel right at home. When we were leaving, my husband and I felt as though we were departing from a family visit.
From the very beginning of our planning, Daryl and Donna were extremely helpful and patient. They answered all of our questions (and more) about SFTS and about day trips, restaurants, etc..... They even booked some of our activities for us. When we arrived, we in awe of the views and the location. You are surrounded by the rainforest, ocean, and sounds of wildlife. It truly is paradise.
We stayed in La Cuesta and the villa was beautiful and clean. The wrap around terrace is where we spent most of our time while "indoors". The terrace has two fans as well so you stay nice and cool. The villa has a/c, but we never had to turn it on and utilized the ceiling fans at night. The doors off the bedroom to the terrace, allows for nice cool breezes and exotic sounds from the rainforest. The pool was lovely and relaxing too. There are towels, books, magazines, hammocks to relax on, TV, music, and an honor bar. This place is great. When we return, we will definetly be staying at Shelter From the Storm.
