About Kris or Dave Biser

My wife and I have been traveling to the warm climates for many years with family and friends. As We approach our older years we decided to retire in Costa Rica. We have a few years left to fight the battles of work but we want to rent our lovely home out for others to enjoy. We enjoy the beautiful climate and wonderful people. Beats freezing in Minnesota!!

Kris or Dave Biser purchased this house in 2012

Why Kris or Dave Biser chose Puntarenas

My wife wanted ocean views and I wanted jungle views, so we decided here in Dominical where the mountains meet the ocean. At 1325ft. warm breezes makes this a very comfortable and quiet area. She also is working on her gardens and fruit trees. I have my jungle animals.

What makes this house unique

Our casa fits nicely on our 2 acre lot on one level. When you walk into our casa you open up to the outdoors with the 16ft. bifolds to pool deck and stunning views. Overhang protects you when the rain starts.

Beautiful home with stunning coastal views from Matalpo to Manuel Antonio!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here with good friends for my "big" birthday! Excellent location, with easy access/day trips to Manuel Antonio and Marino Ballena/Uvita and so many beautiful and mostly deserted beaches and rivers in between! The beach options seemed limitless! The house was very well crafted/designed and very nicely decorated, providing just the right amount of privacy for us, with bedrooms on opposite sides of the house and both with fabulous bathrooms. The infinity pool was wonderful with a swim up bar (perfect for fruit smoothies in the AM and cocktails and snacks in the PM) and the view from the pool was even more spectacular in person. It was a breathtaking view and we enjoyed walking above the house, checking out other homes in the area and views of the ocean and surrounding areas. We enjoyed the neighbor chickens and dogs who would visit on occasion, as well as a toucan that stopped by in the sloth tree while we were in the pool! This is a magical area with hot springs near by and the beautiful Savegre River and so many beautiful beaches and quaint towns nearby! There are not a lot of people who seem to make it this far south, so we seemed to have the whole area to ourselves. Alfredo was very sweet and provided good service during our stay. I would very highly recommend this beautiful home and look forward to returning to Pura Vida!

Amazing accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second trip to Casa Hatillo Sunsets and it was just as stunning as the last - perhaps better, but only because there was more sun this time. :)

The house is perfect, with room for six, the pool and view...everything is top notch. My family especially loved watching the toucans come in every morning around 9 am to sit in the tree by the pool. It's a very special place, this house.

Thank you for sharing your home with my family, it truly was a trip of a lifetime!

Amazing vacation adventure !

  • 5 of 5

First I would like to thank Kris and Dave for sharing their incredible home with us. You will not find people more hospitable and helpful in planning a vacation anywhere. Being our first trip to Costa Rica you can imagine the questions we needed answered to assure we had the most enjoyable experience we could have. After 2 weeks of emails with Kris and asking every question imaginable she took the time to answer them all and then some in a way that made us feel right at home long before we arrived. Words and pictures are only the beginning of this adventure. After 10 days of relaxing at this mountainside escape It was hard to leave. The house and patio with the pacific coast views were wonderful and peaceful. We had breakfast each morning with numerous varieties of birds including toucans and hummingbirds and one morning with monkeys. The road to the house added to the adventure. The locals were some of the most friendly people we have experienced while traveling to foreign countries. We highly recommend eating at the Marino Bellena and the Langosta Feliz " happy lobster". If you would like a guide to get you off the beaten path look up a local named Eduardo Vargas. We found him at the whales tail beach on a whale watching trip. Very knowledgable of the area and proud of his heritage. In one day he showed us more than we had seen in a week, taking us places we would never have found. Waterfalls, coffee fields, eating in small towns nearby with the towns people in open air settings. Mountain top hideaways with open air restaurants. A mountain top tilapia farm serving the fish they raise. Absolutely beautiful. " REAL" Costa Rica. We visited close to a dozen beaches up and down the pacific coast. Don't miss Playas Ventanas. A locals beach a few miles south of Dominical with the surf washing through caves onto the beach. Expect to pay around $40 a person for his services for a full day. Worth every penny and more. Don't plan on spending a lot of time with computers and tv's. The area is not known for its advanced technology. Just let the infinity pool wake you, watch the fog from the coast wash over the house as it rolls in and out and let the rain put you to sleep as it taps on the metal roof in the evening. This was the trip of a lifetime. Thanks again and thanks to Alfredo for all he did to make our trip complete.

Thanks again for choosing to stay at our home. I'm glad you enjoyed your first visit to Costa Rica and hope you come back again some day. :-) Pura Vida Dave and Kris

The Best Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best experience! Dave and Kris really go the extra mile by providing recommendations and amenities (like coffee!) that we haven't seen with other VRBO rentals. The house manager, Alfredo, was wonderful and helped not only with the house but also reservations. We ended up spending more time then expected at the home simply because it was so wonderful. Yoga on the patio, coffee under the veranda, soaking up some sun in the infinity pool... The house, the views, the Dominical area surpassed all of our expectations!

Beautiful! Relaxing! Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Kris and Dave's home is beautiful! The drive up to it the first night was scary, mainly because it was dark and I've never driven a manual car straight up hill! But Alfredo was a great help! The view from this house is gorgeous and relaxing. We loved opening up the main patio door in the morning, making coffee, and just relaxing in the hammocks, listening to the birds. We did not want to leave. The house had everything we could have possibly needed. The pool was beautiful and the A/C's in the rooms worked great! Would definitely recommend this house and location. Dominical was friendly, beautiful, and full of adventure. We can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Hi Sara, I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree with you, that the first time up the hill can be a little scary because it's steep in some places. But once you do it once, it's not bad at all. It's a safe road and you won't go over any cliff's. Please come a visit us again. Kris and Dave
