WELCOME TO SEABREEZE CASA AND NATURE RESERVE

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, 4 full baths, two levels, 6 beds, 8 people max.

Welcome to Seabreeze Casa and Nature Reserve!! My wife, Bea, and I (Bob) have lived full time on this amazing 200 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. This beautiful two bedroom home 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. Seabreeze Casa 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 a very comfortable place to spend your vacation! The house can accommodate a max. of 10 with one king bed, 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 an 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.

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 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.

Excellent property, enormous pool, fantastic views

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

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!

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.

Best Both Worlds...Mountains and Beach

Bob and Bea were wonderful hosts starting with showing us the way at 9:30 at night and then giving us 2 bags of groceries because we didn't stop on our way. 4x4 rental is no joke, but we enjoyed the off roading adventure. Pool and house were wonderful and spacious...I swam laps every day and our son was in starting at 6am. Two of the days we didn't leave the house at all because the views and poolside chairs will draw you in. One night we turned all the lights off in the house and laid out in the lawn chairs and looked at the stars. Download a star chart app...so beautiful with no light pollution. Take all the tours Bob recommends and eat at The Dome in Uvita. Bea's dogs and critters kept us company. I would highly recommend this house and Dominical. This was our first trip and we will be back!

I love reviews that give you tips and hints so here it goes....the property is amazing and Bob and Bea are great hosts. Bob met us at 9:30 at night to follow him up to the property. We didn't stop for groceries but they gave us stuff to make breakfast the next morning. Do the tours they recommend. Renting a 4x4 is no joke, but our kids loved the ride in and out to the house. We felt like like we got the best of both worlds....jungle and 20min to the beach. Two of the days we didn't leave the deck or pool. I am a swimmer and brought goggles and cap and swam laps every morning. The Dome drive through restaurant in Uvita was our favorite, the chef is Jamaican Canadian. Bring friends and enjoy a super laid back Costa Rica. Finally, download a star gazing app on your phone, turn out ALL the lights in the house and lay on the pool chairs with your kids and pick out all the constellations. With no light pollution on the mountain it is an amazing thing to do with your kids. Thank you Bob and Bea (and Tara our favorite dog).
