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.

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.
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.
We will meet our guests in Dominical and show them to the house. Guests will need a 4x4 rental car for the local roads.

“Best of Both Worlds...Mountain 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!
“best vacation rental ever!!”
My wife and I stayed here for eight days and it was better than advertised!! The extra 15 minute 4x4 drive is well worth it. The property is actually nicer in person than the photos indicate which is rarely the case. Bob and Bea are fantastic hosts who went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Many days we didn't even venture out because the setting and amenities were better than any beach you can visit. I will definitely here stay again if possible on future trips to Costa Rica.

“Monkeys, monkeys, monkeys”
We went to Costa Rica hoping to see beautiful rainforests, toucan birds and cappuchin monkeys. Waking up in the morning, lounging in the infinity pool (overlooking the Pacific ocean) and drinking amazing Tica coffee on the porch, we saw all of these things daily. And the house was the nicest we have stayed in on any of our many vacations. Floor to ceiling glass windows in the bedrooms so you wake up to trees, vines, birds all around you. The upstairs (pool level) has the large, granite-countered main kitchen, kitchen island with bar stools. It is open to the living room with dining room table, sofas and big TV. A full bathroom, then down three stairs to the master suite with another beautiful full bath. We put our 4 kids (all 22-24) downstairs in the bedroom with multiple beds and futons, its own kitchen, living area and bathroom. Just the perfect set-up for us. Bea and Bob's house is nearby, but they give you as much privacy as you want. It's just you and them on 100+ acres of nature reserve with trails through the rainforest, waterfalls and streams. We quickly became fast friends with these two incredible people whose love for the land and the animals is apparent in everything they do. It was so nice to be able to leave the doors unlocked day and night- our laptops and phones out with no worries. There is only 1 road up to their house, which is 15 minutes off the highway. And they have 12 adorable rescue dogs who will keep any strangers away. We didn't even go to Manuel antonio park because this property had everything we wanted to see (except the elusive howler monkeys). Instead, we took surfing lessons at Playa Dominical, hung out at the beautiful Playa Ventanas ($6 for all of us instead of $60 at M.A.) and did an aTV tour near San Isidro. For all of us, it was our favorite vacation ever and our favorite house to stay in. I can still see the view from that pool...wow!

Great hospitality, the house and property are in excellent condition with an incredible view of the Dominical beach area. I definitely recommend this house for any group of any age. Great for the family experience. Thanks again to Bob and Bea for a great time!
“All happy, no worries at Sea Breeze”
We had a lovely holiday with our 8-year old daughter, and another couple with their two young daughters. The Sea Breeze Casa is perfectly located, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, with a beautiful ocean view. The house is comfortable with all the amenities one could need, right down to a washer/dryer, internet and satellite TV. The outside area of the house is perfect, with all the animals we could see just from the pool, including toucans and white-headed capuchins. The nights at Sea Breeze are fresh, quiet and peaceful, perfect for star watching lying on the chaise lounge chairs by the pool with a drink! Thank you Bea & Bob, you are truly gracious hosts! We will be back!

“New friends in paradise!”
This was our first trip to Costa Rica, and it won't be our last. We travelled as two couples and found Seabreeze Casa to be ideal. The house is perfect for entertaining with a well equipped kitchen, large outdoor patio, gas grill and indoor and outdoor dining areas, but also private with two separate living quarters. We would meet up in the kitchen for breakfast in the morning (try "homefries” made with yucca) and plan our day's excursion and return to the house in the afternoon for a dip in the pool. After grilling local foods we would experiment with new beverages. We left the recipe for La Bebida de la Casa Seabreeze in the Guest Book. You'll have to rent the house to get it! The only problem with this part of Costa Rica is that there are too many things to do! You have to go zip lining, horseback riding to Nauyaca Falls, explore Hacienda Baru, whale watching from Ballena, and just explore Dominical and watch the surfers. I almost felt guilty leaving this great house and pool every day to go do something. Next time, more pool lounging and less "stuff”! When you go, drive over the Cerro de la Muerta (Mountain of Death) and through San Isidro. Great views and many sights to see! Plan on some extra time and explore on your way. As wonderful as this house and Costa Rica were, the best part was meeting Bob and Bea. You won't find two more genuine and honest people. After we checked out and were heading back to San Jose, we ran into Bea in San Isidro on her 4-wheeler, and she made sure that we found all of the last minute items that we were missing. We look forward to returning and spending more time with them and their "family”.

“A Peaceful secluded paradise with gorgeous Pacific panoramas, st”
We loved this very clean modern home with nicely-equiped kitchen, spacious bathrooms, AC in the huge master BR and the wonderful infinity pool. Privacy is sacredly respected and the owners are close by if needed. Every evening is capped with a stunning sunset over the Pacific. Being birders, we especially enjoyed the parade of birds viewed from the veranda. Our aTV trip down to the river with Bea and the dogs was a highlight. We are a retired active couple at 65 and would return to this tropical retreat in a flash. Thinking back, I think I'll rebook it right now!
“I cried when we left!”
We are just back from an amazing week at Sea Breeze Casa. My husband and I enjoyed the home immensely, as did our two friends who joined us mid-week in the downstairs apartment. Sea Breeze Casa is a luxury home set on a hill top overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We woke up to the sounds of monkeys and birds in the trees just outside our bedroom window each morning and fell asleep to the gentle lull of bullfrogs. The property was alive! We were visited once in awhile by one of the many dogs that Bob and Bea have rescued, we fed their horses who live in a stable just down from the casa, we visited the turtles that live just outside... it was all incredible. The house is extremely well appointed, especially the kitchen, which has all you need to create a meal. We were prepared to eat out frequently, but ended up not wanting to leave Sea Breeze! We ate fresh papaya and mango for our breakfasts and grilled fish dinners many evenings. (That said, we loved Tortilla Flats, Cafe Delicias, and many more restaurants in the area). There is no doubt that the swimming pool is the best feature of the home. We spent many mornings floating in the inner tube in the pool, watching the Pacific crest just below us. The home stays cool (we didn't even use the a/C) due to the ocean breezes. Another advantage of being high above the ocean is that we experienced far less bug bites at the casa than we did near the beach. We had a couple of minor hiccups while we were at the home and Bob and Bea were perfectly accommodating. They were prepared to help us with anything at any time and went out of there way to make sure we were comfortable. The photos do not do this house justice, believe it or not! This is a perfect vacation destination for couples, families... anyone prepared to drive a rough little trip up the hill :) Thanks for an amazing stay, Bob and Bea!
My family has visited Sea Breeze Casa for 2 consecutive years and we are already planning the next visit. The pictures of this property do not do it justice. Waking up mornings with the sounds of the jungle and smell of the blossoming foliage is immeasurable. We were lucky enough to have a traveling clan of white faced monkeys stop twice daily and took many photos and videos of them even one with a missing tail! Evenings are magical as you watch the most amazing sunset and listen to birds winding down and smell Bea's plants that become most fragrant at this time of day. Some reviews have stated that the road to the home is a bit rough but we just considered it part of the adventure and it did not stop us from traveling out and about regularly. Bob and Bea are the most gracious hosts. They were as helpful as we wanted them to be and while they were always close enough to get an opinion on the best place to eat or to help identify a jungle sound they also allowed us plenty of privacy. Dominical is the most interesting little seaside town. It was so refreshing to see the rainforest reach right down into town and to the ocean without large resorts. The restaurants in the area are great, the local fisherman were helpful with a successful trip by boat, ziplining at Hacienda Baru rocked and their staff were so knowledgeable about the wildlife that we left feeling like experts. We have been telling everyone we know about it for the last 24 months and we will be back for sure.
“Best house I've ever rented, hands-down. It's beautiful, relaxi”
We rented this house for a week and brought our two young children and my brother's family had three older children. Absolutely everyone loved it, wanted to stay longer, and we promised we'd be back. The owners are extraordinary in meeting your needs, the house and surrounding land mixes modern conveniences with the jungle at your doorstep, the animal life itself was worth the journey and the solitude and peacefulness is practically unheard of in most vacation destinations in the world today. This area of Costa Rica is by far our favorite after visiting all the tourist areas over a couple trips in the last ten years. We are trying to plan our next trip back to Sea Breeze as I write this review.
