My husband and I, kids, and parents all rented the entire Las Rocas house (bottom and top floors) during our recent vacation to Costa Rica. We stayed 3 nights in Dominical at Shelter from the Storm and absolutely LOVED the house. The views were magnificent and Donna was nice enough to call us one afternoon so that we could look out the terrace at the monkeys making their way across the property. We saw lots of wildlife from the comfort of our room, made some nice meals in our full kitchen which was very well equipped. Donna and Daryl thought of all the touches to make our stay comfortable, including a beautiful welcome basket when we arrived. They were also very helpful in planning our activities while there and the horseback riding at Don Lulu's they set up for us was THE BEST! They made reservations for us at Cafe Exotica which was the best meal we had on the vacation. The only downside to our stay in Dominical was that we had already done all the fun activities while in Arenal earlier that week, so the town itself was kind of boring to us and we had to drive too much to get to beaches and restaurants and grocery stores (maybe because we had little kids with us). But that wasn't the fault of Daryl and Donna, who were very gracious hosts during our stay. The rooms were spacious, well designed, with all the amenities and touches of home. They were also the cleanest rooms we stayed in during our travels, so we were grateful for that!!! Definitely a place I would go back to if in the area again.
