                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: Brent and Angie first visited Zancudo in 2003 as guests of a friend from their hometown who owned property there. They fell in love with the natural beauty of the place and particularly liked the fact that it is off the beaten path. No WalMarts in Zancudo! A few years later, they purchased their lot which is in a great location between Sol Y Mar and Coloso del Mar - two bar/restaurants popular with the expats. The location has a good beach break - perfect for boogie boarding and surfing. After a few more years, they were certain that Zancudo was a place where they wanted to build a home. They named it Shelter from the Storm, referring to the way that being there feels like such a retreat from all the stresses of business and life at home in the US. Currently still working, the couple is limited in the amount of time they can spend at their beloved cottage, but in just a few more years, they plan for that to change. In the meantime, you are lucky to have the opportunity to enjoy Shelter from the Storm for your own vacation. Who knows - you might decide it is the place for your retirement, too! * Check out our other listings on VRBO - 508327 and 508298 in Panama City Beach, Florida, USA.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We stayed in a lot of rentals in Zancudo before we built our home. We tried to put the best features of each in our cottage. Secure windows with screens and ceiling fans in every room make the house very comfortable all day long, all times of the year. We found that we spent very little time indoors at our rentals, even going outside to read and eat. Therefore, our home is designed for living outside with the interior devoted mostly to beds and baths. There is comfortable sleeping for 8. Susan England at Los Cocos manages this property and will make you feel welcome and at home. Everything you need is provided including a fully outfitted kitchen, linens/towels, 4 bicycles, boogie boards, washer/dryer, etc.
