About Storm Zbel

My name is Storm, my wife is Amy and our three boys are Xavier, Von and Aidan. We have lived here Since 2007. 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!

Storm Zbel purchased this villa in 2008

Why Storm Zbel chose Puntarenas

We have traveled extensively all over Costa Rica and knew immediately that this was the spot for us!

Spectacular View in Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

The view from the terrace is so spectacular. We loved sitting out there with coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. It is a wonderful place for spotting all kinds of birds. The location is easily accessible from the main highway (though the first few times up the mountain are a little intimidating). It is very near Dominical and its restaurants though do yourself a favor and venture further south (Ojochal has great restaurants and the beaches of Uvita and Ballena are wonderful). Two minor drawbacks - the wi-fi is woefully slow or nonexistent (but if you are coming here for the wi-fi, you are coming for the wrong reason and will miss what this place is really about). Secondly, the owners offered to book activities for us but were not very responsive. I recommend you make your own arrangements which is easy to do.

Suprised and Delighted

  • 5 of 5

After a long trip to Boston for my first visit to CR I was blessed with having had the good fortune of staying at this lovely hillside Villa overlooking the coastline Just a few minutes south of Domical. The location is perfect and the this two story villa is loaded with all the modern amenities and conveniences that one would expect of a five star resort. As a hotel operator of the Fairmont Copley in Boston I have high expectations when traveling to new locations. As it turns out the owners of this villa also are restaurant and bar operators. Be sure to visit the Jolly roger when you come to Dominical. Its a sure bet!

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

It seems like there are two ways to enjoy beautiful Dominical area- either with a gorgeous ocean view from the mountain or from accommodations right on the beach. This villa is up a steep hill and nestled amongst several other identical villas. The view is really beautiful.

The house is ideal for 4 guests. We have four kids and the house was snug (in terms of bedding, eating area, sitting area). Fortunately we weren't home much, enjoying the coast and all sorts of fantastic local attractions. I would encourage anyone staying here to make a thorough trip to the grocery store for food before you arrive (if you plan to cook). Be sure to buy bottled water, extra TP, clothes detergent etc.

If you're looking for a good place to launch your beach adventures, this is a good one.

Panoramic Views Garner Unfounded Excellence

  • 5 of 5

The owners of this nicely adorned vacation villa have packaged the splendor of Costa Rica up with the magic and sincerity of their loving spirit. From the moment you approach the front door, you know this will be a special respite. Once you open the french doors, your eyes have no choice but to beam out to the tranquil ocean tides, breaking subtly off the coast. You have no choice but to venture out to the integrated balcony and patio, with your own private pool! Storm and Amy have seen to it that every amenity of home is here to be used at your discretion. The Villa is spotless. The views are stupendous. And the overall environment makes you wish you lived here. So if you are stealing a romantic get away, just be sure and get out to see the local sites. You're within 10 minutes to buckets of them, and within an hour of tons! Waterfalls, surfing, night life at the ever famous Jolly Roger Bar, tourist shopping in downtown Dominical, and fishing charters are just a few of the Costa Rican activities you can enjoy! This is a true five star experience! I guarantee it! Chad Church - Denver, CO.

Beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the place. It sleeps 4 people very nicely with a king bed in the master and two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom. There is a single type day bed in the hallway between the two bedrooms, no windows or anything to possibly sleep a child. They offered to bring an air mattress to sleep two more but forgot so we spend one night on the floor with beach towels as bedding. Be sure to remind the owner before you come if you need the air mattress and ask if it has leads. The one they brought leaked.

They did have nice welcome gifts, boogies boards, beach chairs, and beach towels for use which was great. It's a beautiful condo and a nice location. We'd stay again.

Activity and Interests

Dominical is a funky little surfing and fishing town 30 minutes south of Manuel Antonio. I have traveled extensively throughout Costa Rica and when I visited the Dominical area I immediately knew that this was the spot for me. I hope it will be for you too!
