About the Owner

My name is Storm, my wife is Amy and our three boys are Xavier, Von and Aidan. We have lived here for over six years now. I used to be a D.J. on the radio in Boston, MA and Charleston, SC. Now I run a pirate bar and surf a lot. When you come to visit us the first rounds on us.

We look forward to sharing our local knowledge with you and pointing out all the great places, wether they be surf spots, restaurants, beaches, tours or secret waterfalls!

run like a 5-star hotel !

  • 5 of 5
Directions, check-in and meet-up were all clear and helpful. I found a detached "condo" (mini-house) that felt like a 5-star hotel: spotless, newness, over-stock of thick new towels, clean furnishings and super stereo. A breathtaking view over the beach and canopy. Nicely spaced units where you don't feel crowded by your neighbors.

A nice kitchen that included a good 5-in chefs knife and well-stocked with cookware and small appliances (daiquiris and toast could freely flow).

If you don't mind the steep hill condo drive you can stroll to the beach in 10 minutes -- condo has a great view high over the beach, yet is close to the beach that is a nice combination. Who wants to drive to the local beach after-all, unless the mother-in-law insists! The local dark-sand beach is swim-able and large with ocean temp == air temp (84F?) so you just walk right in, my sister was trilled when a hang-glider landed at her feet and flirted with her. There are markers to avoid rocky areas of the water underfoot, and surf that is adequate for minor boarding. A 10-minute drive to a lighter-sand beach that is more popular and more surf-worthy.

The apartment pictures don't allow you to realize that this is a two-level, where both the living room and both bedrooms (lower level) opening onto balconies and with great views.

The plunge pool was more than adequate, and the roomy patio area with dining table meant that the indoor dining table may be wanting for company as we were always dining outside.

There were so many nice nearly tourist services. We went horse-back riding, and took the competitively priced canopy-ride plus wildlife hike (white-face monkeys, sloths, yellow-beaked toucans, iguana in touching distance, world's 3rd largest rodent species, Coati [racoon]) at a nearly plantation with fun tour hosts and fellow fun-visitors. It was superior to the Manuel Antonio tour (although you should also visit there and experience the lively wf-monkies stealing food from over-whelmed beach-picnickers).

We saw sunset one evening from the hosts nearby pub-grill and also saw toucans there at sunset. We heard howler monkeys near the condo and saw a lone-male bidding us farewell as we departed our stay.

The internet worked better here than places I've stayed in Guanacaste. I was able to watch my home cable/DVR via Slingbox with high quality as also HQ Netflix over my VPN.

Best trip I've ever experienced in my life.

Best trip I've ever experienced in my life.

I researched extensively for almost a year until I found Storm and Amys house. I researched areas,homes, condos and everything else and found this gem. I was iffy at first booking online with a majority of the places that I looked at on here but once I started conversing with storm I knew this was the place. The house is about a 3 1/2 drive from San Jose which was totally worth it and actually a great and scenic drive. We pulled in late and went up the steep mountian and was in awe of how nice the house was. The other couple that we stayed with woke us up at 530 the next morning to show us the view (knowing it was dark when we arrived) from the house. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had looking out into the vast ocean as well as the rainforest mountain (yes you see both from the patio).. Amy and storm were amazing during our stay setting us up with trips and always checking in to see if we needed anything. They actually set up our first trip that was the horse backing ride and helped me planned my engagement. I asked my fiancé to marry me at the Nayuca waterfalls and the Horse backing ride. Amazing experience. . 2 minutes from down town Domincal.. if your looking for a rejuice from your crazy life of work and always busy. THIS IS THE SPOT. You won't be disappointed !!!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I had a blast staying here for a week. Storm and Amy were very welcoming and went out of there way to make sure we had a good time and even set up day trips and adventures for us. The location is perfect as it is close to both Dominical and Uvita and walking distance to the beach at Dominicalito. The property itself is very nice and well-kept with an amazing view that pictures really don't do justice. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area and would go back in a heart beat. We didn't have a single bad experience staying here!

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5
Amy & Storm (and kids)

Thank you so much for making our visit everything we could have hoped for and so much more The kids learned to surf, saw a gazillion animals and, most importantly, learned to appreciate the Pura Vida way of life. Your home, assistance, guidance and friendship were invaluable in making it happen. Having travelled all over the world, this will always rank as a special trip for our family for more reasons than I can name here. If there is anything we can do to return the favor, don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks for everything. Pura Vida!

I can't say enough positive things about Storm & Amy's villa. It is exactly as advertised, kitchen is well-stocked, including decent bath & beach towels (none of those tiny, scratchy white ones here!). The views are amazing, I could have sat out on the deck all day but there were too many fun things to do in the area. We saw toucans, monkeys, lizards and tons of other birds right from the deck. We also hiked farther up the road into the rainforest early in the morning and saw lots of poison dart frogs.

Having a private pool was fantastic - our kids could swim as much as they liked while we were making meals or whatever, instead of a community pool where we'd have to chaperone them.

Amy & Storm left us with several suggestions on beaches / restaurants, as well as recommendations for activities. Highly recommend Sunset Surf for surf lessons & the Nauyaca Falls horseback trip. I would stick with the beaches they recommend, they were all great. One day we went to the Marino Ballena National Park beach (which was not on their list). Although the beach was visually awesome, the vibe there was a little unpleasant - police patrolling the beach and some locals eyeing our stuff a little too closely. There are too many other nice beaches that are free with a more relaxed vibe. Playa Ventanas was awesome, be prepared to pay a German guy who lives there about $5 to park, but it's worth it.

The villa has 3 AC units, one in each bedroom and one on the main level, so we found that we only needed to run the bedroom ACs at night, the rest of the time, we could just open the doors & windows. The location is fantastic, walking distance to Dominicalito beach and a waterfall with a swimming hole, and just a short drive to other beaches & restaurants. We ate at several of the restaurants Amy & Storm recommended, including their own Jolly Roger (great, friendly staff & awesome views!), Tortilla Flats, PorQueNo, La Parcela and Sabor Espanol to name a few.

It is the tropics and sometimes things don't work as consistently as in the US (water, power, WIFI, etc), but the few minor occurrences didn't impact our trip. I've lived and worked in a lot of tourist destinations and I can honestly say the local population in this part of CR is friendlier and more laid back than anywhere else I've traveled. They truly are living the Pura Vida!

Storms's Villa is beautiful, clean and has everything for a fabulous vacation. (It could use a BBQ though). My wife and I just couldn't get enough of the view! The Dominicalito are has everything for adventurous people like ourselves. Storm gave a list of top things to do and I would follow his advice if you decide on the area and his villa. And if you like chicken wings then his Jolly Roger Bar has some of the best we've ever had! We couldn't have asked for a better time in a gorgeous place!!! Thanks Storm!!!
