Overview

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, mountain vista 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" adds an additional 600 + sq. feet of living space as a THIRD MASTER SUITE! A generous wrap around balcony overlooks the pacific and surrounding mountains. This new addition has been constructed of the finest materials using local Teak and Ron Ron wood, along with porcelain tiles, slate, and stone; creating a feeling of warmth and rustic elegance. All of the tropical hardwoods came from local tree plantations and were harvested with all the proper permits. The Villa bath has an elegant slate shower, side by side stone 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 with surround sound for your entertainment day or night. A mango tree directly off the balcony invites the monkeys to visit you daily.

And of course, you'll enjoy wifi service in both the main house and the detached villa. Privacy awaits you whether you stay in the new villa master suite or either of the 2 bedrooms in the main house. All 3 are spacious, private, and are steps away from the gorgeous infinity pool. Because of the unique layout of our home, Seabreeze provides the perfect place for a single family with children, 3 couples, or friends who wish to travel together for a small retreat.

Our sunsets from the infinity pool and balconies will captivate you. The rainforest and reserve and mountains that surround you will warm your hearts. You will never want to leave. You will enjoy watching the horses grazing in the pasture below our home. Toucans and many other species of birds will visit you by the pool daily. Oh, and no worries, a troop of monkeys won't forget to visit you at Seabreeze each and every day!!

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 3 Master suites, including the Studio Apartment with separate entrance, kitchen, laundry and full bath..... and yes...we even have a 5th FULL BATHROOM WITH SHOWER off the pool patio!!!!

At Seabreeze, we are very energy conscious. We are proud to be "GOING SOLAR" in the very near future!! Our solar panels have been installed on the main house, the villa, and our car port and will serve "all of Seabreeze Casas."

WAIT....THERE IS MORE COMING!!

This Fall, we are excited to tell you we are adding even more OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE for your comfort, convenience, and amazing living experience at Seabreeze. A new expansive outdoor covered pavilion extending from the main house on the patio will provide more outdoor living space and will include: a built in barbecue/kitchenette, outdoor covered living room seating, and outdoor covered dining. It will also feature enhanced gardens and a new garden shower for rinsing off before or after your swim.

On the opposite side of the pool, we're designing a sunset patio with a fireplace, where you can sit and watch the sun as it quietly disappears into the ocean each night. It will be a special area to enjoy a fire and a drink or simply sit and appreciate the sounds of nature that surround you. (pictures to follow soon).

TWO MORE REASONS NOT TO MISS OUT ON SEABREEZE NEXT SEASON!!!

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.

About Bob or Bea Kable

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

Why Bob or Bea Kable chose Puntarenas

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.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a PERFECT VACATION HOME, look no further. The managers, Bob and Bea are extremely helpful and have become close friends. We have stayed at Sea Breeze 8 times and will continue to keep staying here whenever we can.

If you come to Costa Rica to see the animals and view of the ocean, there is no home that can provide all this, except Sea Breeze. The minute you arrive at this paradise, you will see monkeys, toucans, and many other types of wildlife. As I write this review, and am looking out at the ocean and can even see the waves breaking on the beach.

Bea makes this trip even more wonderful. Her love for animals is wonderful. She will take in an injured dog, monkey or any other animal needing help. She will have it mended, then released back into nature.

What can I say about the home and property? The house and master suite across from the house is amazing. You can bring your entire family and everyone will have a place to sleep and relax. The pool is the perfect place to relax while watching the Toucans eating the berries in the trees above you.

We will be back again this spring and as we pack to leave, we are already looking at our vacation schedule .

Thank you Bob and Bea for another perfect trip!

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

It has been weeks since our wonderful 10 days at the Seabreeze Casa and we are still reminiscing about the trip..our adventures, Dominical, but especially the Seabreeze. We're already planning our 2017 visit..2 weeks next time. (watch out, Bea and Bob!) Everything about the property was beyond expectations. The main house was perfectly appointed and spacious and the kitchen/living area was equipped with everything we needed and plenty of seating with sliders to patio where there are two more dining tables and chairs. The lower level was perfect for our two boys (14 and 11) and the gorgeous poolside villa allowed privacy, while not being too far away, for another family member. We grilled outside almost every day, rarely going out to eat..instead taking advantage of the farmer's markets where you can buy local, fresh produce and fish. We always had fresh mangoes, watermelon and bananas to snack on. Most mornings we hiked the trails through the reserve down to the streams..watching the butterflies and our sons' favorite, the fascinating leaf cutter ants. We did venture off the property to go in to town or to Uvita, visit one of the pristine beaches or to go on a tour like horse back riding to the Nauyaca Falls but we always looked forward to returning "home" in the afternoon to cool off in the spectacular infinity pool. From sunrise to sunset the sounds and sights of the birds (parakeets, Toucans..) and scents of the beautiful flowers fill the air. We saw monkeys every day and had a sloth hanging out in a tree by the villa.This was our third visit to Costa Rica..Manuel Antonio the first two times. We preferred the laid back atmosphere of this area and fewer tourists. As far as the owners, Bob and Bea Kable are not just welcoming and warm..they are very hard working and generous. It was reassuring to know that we could contact them any time with any question. They are a wealth of information and have a true appreciation of the culture. You can tell that this property is a labor of love for them and they have huge hearts..taking in a variety of rescued animals and building special habitats for them. We are animal lovers ourselves so we thoroughly enjoyed visiting the horses and heading up to Bob and Bea's to visit with their dogs and other critters. We would recommend this property to anyone that needs a little rejuvenation or a reminder to slow things down and appreciate the nature around you.

Upstanding owners!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was cancelled in March of 2015 due to cancelled flights due to the eruption of the volcano near the San Jose airport the day we were expected at Casa Seabreeze. We were devastated and had to completely rebook our vacation for 9 people at the last minute. The owners of Casa Seabreeze were patient, kind and understanding during the whole process. Most importantly, they refunded our entire payment for the house rental since we couldn't get to Costa Rica from the U.S.

While I wish I could speak for the actual home and property in my review, I'm happy to tell you, you're dealing with upstanding owners and you can trust they will take care of you in any situation. I hope to one day make it to Casa Seabreeze and experience that beautiful view!

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two adult children and I enjoyed Sea Breeze Casa for 15 days in Feb-March of 2016. The owners, Bob and Bea, have prepared a first rate website containing photos and descriptions of the house and location. Truly, what you see is what you get: no exaggerations or strangely contrived photos. It is a beautiful, well maintained, house and location. The four of us have traveled extensively and know a gem when we see it.

The house is some distance off the highway. When we first arrived in Dominical, Bob met us and led the way to the house. The road into the house is not a "thriller" but it is rough in spots and a 4wd vehicle is recommended. We had been unable to find a web based car rental agency that would assure us that a 4wd would be available in Quepos. I previously had several e-mail communications with Bob and he had always responded almost immediately. Within a couple of hours of asking for assistance, Bob had located a 4wd drive car and gave us contact information (Budget located at the airport).

When we arrived at the house we met Bea, and Bob showed us through each of the three suites explaining features and operations. They are wonderful hosts, always ready to answer questions about the house, local wildlife, stores, restaurants and activities but never intrusive. They showed us where to watch for the troop of capuchin monkeys that pass through the yard twice a day and came to get us one day when there was a sloth moving around in a tree next to their house. On the day we left, we had forgotten a few articles of clothing. Bob and Bea gathered them up and followed us to the Quepos airport (30 km away) to return them.

This review was difficult to write. Not because of problems, but because of not wanting to detract from or directly repeat any of the great reviews that Sea Breeze Casa has already received.

Would we recommend Sea Breeze Casa to a friend? Oh yes! We are seriously considering a return next year.

Perfect Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Seabreeze Casa is simple paradise. We recently stayed here for 11 days and loved every minute of it. Bea and Bob are wonderful and made us feel special. They helped me plan a wonderful 60th birthday celebration for my spouse, which was perfect. The setting is extremely relaxing and Dominical and the surrounding area provide diverse adventures. My favorite special memories is having our own canine caretaker whom we named Carol. The monkeys, the Toucans and all the wildlife at or fingertips made for a wonderful experience. We loved the villa and all the main house had to offer. Make sure you rent a four wheel drive and expect a 22 min drive up the mountain to paradise.

A Very Special 10 Days in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Wow.

We recently returned from a 10 day trip to the Dominical area, our first time in CR. We had 5 adults, 4 kids (ages 8-12). We left thinking that we literally picked the perfect rental in all of Costa Rica for our family. The benefits of the rental itself are well documented in previous reviews. Great home, plenty of sleeping options and ability to either be together or get some alone time, even with large group. The new villa suite was great for my wife and I to have privacy, but still very close to main home to keep an eye on the kids. The pool is ridiculously beautiful. Amazing views, monkeys, toucans, hummingbirds, butterflies, and more. Impeccably maintained grounds with lots of flowering plants that give the whole property these wonderful fragrances that vary based on the wind.

But for us what made this a very special vacation was Bob and Bea themselves and the "character" of the property. This is not a cookie-cutter vacation property. This is a unique and special farmstead that just happens to also be an amazing vacation rental in one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine. After we followed Bob up to the property in our rental cars (more on this later) we were greeted by Bea's pack of rescue pups. We do a lot of rescue work back home so this was great for us. All different sizes and shapes and each with their own personality. One dog Tara basically lived with us for the time we were there and the rest of the dogs would come and visit at various times. Very cool. Within the first hour we were there Bea had our kids on the back of a 4 wheeler with her dogs running behind driving down to the horse stable to feed their 8 horses (again rescues), then came back to see the monkeys. Again all in first hour. On our last day we went with Bea and Christopher (one of the local workers on the farm) and took a four wheeler trip down the mountain to a few swimming holes with a bunch of dogs tagging along. You ain't getting that at an all-inclusive resort.

OK some tips on the rental and the area. As stated 4WD is a must. And prepare to be a little overwhelmed on the first drive to the property. But trust me it gets much easier and is just part of the adventure. Suggestion on activities like beaches - get up and get out early. It gets very warm once you get off the mountain and we found it best to get the activities done early and come back in the afternoon to hang by the pool.

Overall amazing experience - 5 stars!

It is a 900 acre National Wildlife Refuge that offers canopy tours, zip lines, bird watching, and nature walks lead by trained naturalist guides. The Nayaca waterfall horseback tour is possibly the most popular tour in the Dominical area. We highly recomend it.To the north 25 miles is Manual Antonio National Park with beautiful beaches and lots of monkeys to watch. Ten miles south is Ballena National Marine Park with miles of beach and great snorkeling. Fishermen will have a choice of excellent river, surf, inshore, or deep sea fishing. Sea kayak tours are a fun way to explore sea caves and view wild life in the mangroves. Without leaving Seabreeze Casa you will be able to meet Stitch the raccoon and see white face monkeys twice a day when they pass by. 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.

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.
