Overview

Puntarenas 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!

We are excited to announce the completion of our New Poolside Villa at Sea Breeze!! This 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 are 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.

And of course, you'll enjoy wifi service just as you do in the main house and the apartment on the second level. Privacy awaits you in the new villa master suite and you can join the rest of the family/friends a few steps away on the opposite side of the pool patio.

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 2 Master suites + 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!!!!

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.

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!

Wonderful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Seabreeze Casa was, well, a breeze. The owners were around to help if we needed it but never hovering or intrusive. Like its owners, the house was very accommodating and slept the 6 of us very comfortably and could have clearly fit even more without a problem. The pool is wonderful and has a great view. A part of it even has natural shade from a nearby palm tree. The adjacent tree is home to many toucans who come and go throughout the day. Our only gripe was the lack of a bigger table that would seat more than 4. Not a big deal but family dinners required some ingenuity and resourcefulness in order to sit together.

Paradise Found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a beautiful place to stay. I almost didn't want to leave this review, because then everyone will want to stay here.

Bob and Bea Kable, the owners are the most wonderful people. They make you feel like part of their family.

Now on to the property. The main house is perfect for large families, with a huge master bedroom, on the main floor, and a separate apartment, fully furnished, down below. But in addition, there is a new master bedroom suite across from the pool, for a couple to have privacy. It is beautifully built with local woods and bamboo.

On our trip last week, we were able to watch a sloth climb down a tree. There were so many Toucans, it was hard to count them all, and monkeys everywhere.

Don't waste your time looking at other rentals in the Dominical area, just go ahead and book the "Sea Breeze" farm. You will not be disappointed.

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
