Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

3 master suites, 5 full baths, two levels, 7 beds, 10 people max

Welcome to Seabreeze Casa and Nature Reserve!! This beautiful home with detached guest villa is 15 min. from Playa Dominical, a world class eco-tourism and surfing destination. Dominical is also the gateway to the Osa Peninsula, one of the most bio-diverse locations on the planet.

The Main house is built on two levels with 2600 sq ft of living area. Both levels have white water ocean views, kitchens, laundry facilities, private entrances, and a total of four baths. Granite counters, Italian tiles, slate from Brazil, A/C in the bedrooms, and elegant furnishings make this house a very comfortable place to spend your vacation!

Our New Poolside Villa at Sea Breeze will add an additional 600 + sq. feet of living space as a THIRD MASTER SUITE! Construction is under way and will be completed in Oct 2014.( We will be adding photos of the new villa very soon!) A generous wrap around balcony overlooks the pacific and surrounding mountains. The Villa will be constructed of the finest materials using local Teakwood and Ron Ron wood, along with porcelain tiles, slate, and stone; creating a feeling of warmth and rustic elegance. The Villa bath has an elegant shower, side by side sinks, and a commode. The bedroom/living area is spacious and includes A/C, a king size bed, wardrobe, and comfortable bamboo furnishings. In addition, it has a wet bar area with fridge/microwave, and a full size flatscreen TV for your entertainment day or night.

For those who have been here before and plan to return, we know you'll simply love the new poolside villa and for those yet to experience the magic of SEABREEZE, you will now have have 2 Master suites + a full Studio Apartment with a total of 5 FULL BATHROOMS, each with a full size shower.

We look forward to seeing you soon so that we can share our amazing Home and Nature Reserve with you!!

The property can accommodate a max. of 10 with two king beds, one queen bed, and four double futon beds. Cool off in the 15 meter infinity edge pool with jacuzzi bench and children's play area. The pool is plenty big enough to swim laps. For the nature enthusiast, Seabreeze Casa has access to our adjoining 75 acre nature reserve with abundant wildlife and miles of trails through the rainforest.

Dominical is the closest town to Seabreeze Casa and has some of the best surfing and eco-tourism activities in the world. Hacienda Baru is close by. It is a 900 acre national Wildlife reserve that offers canopy tours, zip lines, bird watching, and nature walks led by trained naturalist guides.

The Nauyaca waterfall horseback tour is always popular. To the north 25 miles is Manuel Antonio National Park with beautiful beaches and lots of monkeys to watch. Ten miles south is Ballena National Marine Park with miles of beaches and great snorkeling. Fishermen will have a choice of excellent river, surf, inshore, and deep sea fishing.

Reptilandia is a fascinating place to view and learn about snakes and many other types of reptiles.

Sea kayak tours are a fun way to explore sea caves or view wildlife in the Mangroves. Toucans and parrots can be seen daily near the house, and the adjoining 75 acre nature reserve is teaming with exotic bird, animal, and plant life.

My wife, Bea, and I (Bob) have lived full time on this amazing 100 acres since 1998. I am a retired firefighter and Bea was a RN in Yakima, WA. We live 75 meters from the rental and are available 24/7 if our guests need anything.

My name is Bob Kable. My wife, Bea, and I came to Costa Rica on our honeymoon in 1998 and loved the country and people so much we decided to make it our permanent home. We lived in the Pacific NW in Yakima WA before we moved to Costa Rica. I am a retired firefighter and Bea was a RN for many years. We bought two hundred acres in 1998 and dedicated a portion of it to a private wildlife reserve. We developed hiking trails through the reserve that our guests are welcome to enjoy. Bea has been involved in animal rescue and is the go to person when someone finds an injured critter or has a sick pet. One of her more recent adventures involved 2 of the neighbor's dogs and a porcupine. I love hiking in the rainforest and spend a lot of my spare time making new trails.We live near the rental house and are available if our guests need anything..Having lived here for 16 years, we are very familiar with the area and are happy to help with tours and suggestions for local activities.

Bob or Bea Kable purchased this house in 1998

Seabreeze has a unique blend of so much of what one comes to Costa Rica to see, feel, and experience. The journey up the mountain to get here is best understood once you are here. What awaits you is peace and tranquility, spectacular mountain and ocean views, a host of wild life critters, with frequent visits by monkeys, toucans, and many species of birds....oh, let's not forget the parrots...wink, wink...they will sing to you in the morning. Yes..... Seabreeze is that unique blend of luxury, comfort, nature, far enough away from everything and everyone yet close enough to all that you need as you venture off for the day.

We love Seabreeze for all of these reasons and we are sure you will too.

Magical

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed first week, then had several relatives join us for the second week.
The pictures don't do the property and home justice.
This is close to perfect as you will get. Lots of room, beautiful views and the most wonderful hosts we could have asked for. Bob and Bea are now part of our extended family and we will be staying at their home again in January.
If you want a carefree vacation with the most wonderful and caring homeowners, this is the home for you.
Be prepared to be blown away by the views and wildlife. We saw monkeys, Toucans of all sizes, an ant eater on the road on the way to the house, and many more animals.

Our group of seven had the most amazing time at Seabreeze Casa! Bea and Bob were very helpful in suggesting activities and grocery stores, and Bob even met us off the main highway to take us to the house. As others have mentioned 4x4s are necessary (we had a great experience with Vamos Rent a Car).

Seabreeze was perfect for our group, tucked away in the mountains with beautiful views, but only a short drive to the main road with restaurants and stores. The house and pool are well maintained, and we loved having the dogs keep us company. There is a horse stable where you can feed horses, and hiking paths Bob pointed us to.

Be sure to check out Tortilla Flats, and try the ceviche and coconuts they sell off the road!

Simply Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our overall trip to Costa Rica was incredible!
A huge thank you to both Bob and Bea for letting us stay at this incredible home!
The views from Seabreeze are breathtaking. It would be hard to feel any amount of stress while staying here. Waking up, you are greeted simultaneously by the lush jungle and the Pacific Ocean.
Highly recommend a 4X4 vehicle to make the trip up the mountain to Seabreeze—Bob meets you out by Dominical and guides you up. Driving up the mountain for the first time was awesome, first time ever driving through that type of terrain and where the road ends is paradise!
The house was perfect for our trip, we all came to Costa Rica to simply relax and forget about our lives back home. The views both during the day of the beach and jungle and during the night of the starry sky are incredible. Although the beach is just minutes away, we did find ourselves simply enjoying the pool and its views instead of heading down to Dominical. Make sure to hike through the nature reserve and feed the horses along the way. We snorkeled and zip lined while we where here, which were less than an hour away and easy to get to. There are plenty of great restaurants up and down route 34 for when you don’t feel like cooking and do stop by and try the Ceviche posts throughout 34.
The house itself is fully equipped with any amenities one may need and it was able to house all seven adults comfortably. The house has a fully equipped kitchen, stocked bathrooms, and an abundance of towels, pillows, and blankets. They also provide some board games, movies, satellite TV and Wi-Fi. Both Bob and Bea are available if need be, and provide a cellphone.
Seabreeze was the perfect choice for our trip, and the hospitality provided by both Bob and Bea is immeasurable. Thanks again!

Excellent property, enormous pool, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5
Arrival at this property might get you worried. The last part of the road is terrible (4x4 essential) but perhaps only normal for Costa Rica. You are then greeted by 12 or more dogs all barking in unison - but they all prove to be friendly and harmless. You then pass the house of the owners, Bob and Bea, which seems as much designed for dogs as humans. Then you arrive at Sea Breeze Casa and realise the journey was well worth while. The pool, with an "infinity" edge towards the valley and the sea, is larger than many hotel pools with one really deep end. There is a large terrace with ample good quality chairs, tables and sun loungers, all in good condition. Everywhere inside is fully insect screened and large glass doors open on two sides. The bedroom is similar and, although there is air conditioning, we could see no need for it. We were only two, so did not use the second downstairs very large studio room. however this makes the property uniquely suitable for two couples giving the opportunity to be together or for each to have some time on their own.

Bob and Bea are always available (the cellphone provided will always locate them) but leave you in total privacy unless invited. The kitchen has everything you need including (to our delight) an espresso coffee machine complete with ample supplies of very good coffee. Everything is provided. Masses of towels, lots of food incidentals, dishwash tablets, paper towels, etc. And above all, everything works - even the wifi internet access - all the time - a miracle for Costa Rica!

Of course it is all clean and well maintained. There is no mid-stay maid service which suited us fine. Bob did whatever pool maintenance was required at times to suit us. The dogs are no trouble if you can put up with the very occasional short outburst of barking and a few of the less timid ones will visit you at the house from time to time. One of them likes to be temporarily adopted by the tenants - as happened with us for the whole of our stay.

The supermarket in Domincal is good and the two at Uvita (15km further on) are among the best on the Pacific Coast. The only thing sadly lacking was a nice beachside restaurant for a casual lunch under the palms. These seem to be confined to the more northern parts of the coast.

Would we go again? - Yes. Would be recommend Sea Breeze to others? - Definitely.

Beautiful Seabreeze Casa

  • 4 of 5
Bob/Bea want to thank you for opening up your beautiful Casa to us. I would just want to say 1 that some screens need to be repaired so the a/c would not of had to be used all the time in bedrooms, also had to skim pool for the first couple of days because filter system was down for repairs,once repaired all was good. The pool/patio with those views(birds,monkeys and especially the sunsets while sipping Champagne in the pool) was spectacular. We had a ball with the dogs especially Tara(hope she is not missing us to much). Feed the horses down at the stable. As far as dinner we had good food at Tortilla Flats(Surf town)excellent Coconut Mahi Mahi, Fried Calamari appetizer and PastaCalamari in a cream sauce. If anyone has a thing for Wings go to Jolly Rogers try the Basil-Parmesan wings,fries awesome. Please say hello to Wayne,Ralph and Storm the owner you will not be disappointed I guarantee it. Bob/Bea Thank You it was the BOMB The Pollock's/Cerasoli's

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having Francis and his group here. We look forward to a return visit. We appreciate it when our guests take the time to write a review. The reviews give us information to inprove the Sea Breeze Casa experience. There was some confusion about the pool filtration system. The main pool pump for the filters and the infinity egde pumps were both running perfectly during the entire stay. There is a third pump for the jacuzzi jets which was out of service. We serviced the pool twice during this period and made sure the pool chemicals were properly balanced. Feed back from our guests allows us to fix any problems that are new or that we overlooked. Coming home from vacation is usually pretty hectic and it is great when travelers make the effort to review the property. Thanks! Pura Vida, Bob and Bea

Paradise in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5
Seabreeze Casa is truly a bit of paradise. Our stay there exceeded the already high expectations we had from reading the previous reviews! The house and pool are even nicer than the pictures and everything was so comfortable. I thought I would never find a master bedroom as beautiful as the one we have at home but I was wrong - the Seabreeze master is unbelievably beautiful - big, with windows surrounding you so that you feel you are living outside and cool breezes at all times! We had our daughter and her husband with us and they enjoyed the complete privacy of the lower level. We loved the casa so much that we only left twice in 6 days. Everything we were looking for was right there - the birds, the animals, the water, the quiet (except for the sounds of nature!), the view. And Bea and Bob were so wonderful - there when you needed something but very respectful of our desire for solitude and peace. We are bird watchers and Seabreeze was heaven for us with birds coming right to the house! To say nothing of the wonderful Capuchin monkeys!! The road into the house is a bit of a challenge but if you have 4 wheel drive you should be able to manage fine and it is certainly WORTH the drive.

It is a 900 acre National Wildlife Refuge that offers canopy tours, zip lines, bird watching, and nature walks lead by trained naturalist guides.

Other Activities: Canopy tours, white water rafting, zip-line, reptile zoo, fishing, diving/snorkeling, surfing, hiking

Golf: Los Suenos Resort and Marina near Jaco has a beautiful course and is 1.5 hours away. A new course is open about 45 min south of Dominical. Repilandia is a fascinating reptile attraction 7 km from the house.
