Sharing the property with two other rental villas, The Monkey House is a well equipped cozy studio apartment overlooking a well traveled monkey trail through a primary rainforest ravine. It has been said that it is like living in a tree house.

Interaction with Guests
When staying at Shelter From The Storm, you will enjoy the benefit of our presence; unobtrusive but available. If there is something that you find that you need, we are there to provide it. If there is something that doesn't work just right, we are there to make it right. If you would like to know where to eat, what tours to take (and which ones NOT to take) where to get groceries, medicines, dental care or have your rental car towed out of a mud bog, we are there. We are housekeeping, concierge, maintenance, room service and tour guide. We have combined the privacy and luxury of private residences with the services of the finest hotels in the world. Like "W" Hotels, we have adopted the motto, "Whatever you want; whenever you want it".
As with the majority of the rental villas in the area, personal transportation is recommended. There are buses but the service is infrequent and unreliable and the taxis are too expensive to rely on.
Stay here and you could give this host their first review!
