Our GPS Location 9 degrees 17' 50"N 83 degrees 52'54"W

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.....

We've recently added an additional OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE for your comfort, convenience, and enjoyment. The new covered pavilion extends directly from the main house and is steps away from the detached Villa and includes: a built-in barbecue/kitchen Island, lounge, and full Dining, as well as plenty of lighting for evening entertaining. It also features lush gardens that surround our new enchanting teak shower with rain head, perfect for rinsing off after sun bathing or swimming.

On the opposite side of the pool is our new sunset deck with fire pit where you'll find ample seating for everyone. Sit and enjoy the brilliant sunset while sipping on your favorite fresh fruit smoothy or cocktail.

We look forward to seeing you soon so that we can share our amazing Home and Nature Reserve with you!!

Our home 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.

Earthly Paradise ?

  • 5 of 5

It's really amazing what one person can accomplish, in this case what one man has accomplished, Bob Kable. Through his vision, determination, and sweat, Bob has transformed a hillside jungle setting into basically this kind of Shangri-La. Wikipedia describes Shangri-La as an 'earthly paradise'. It's really amazing what has been created here. Everybody appreciates this home, but I wonder how many think about the effort that went into it.

When you read the reviews of this place, you will notice that folks talk about Bob and Bea as much as they do about the property. They are a lovely couple, and we enjoyed our chats with them. We've stayed in many VRBO/Home Away properties, and we've enjoyed meeting many of the owners, but these two are in a class by themselves.

In the moments when Bob wasn't speaking, I could tell that Bob was always thinking about something, his mind racing ahead. There's a lot of work to do to keep that place functioning. He is one smart cookie. ... And Bob is super responsive and so helpful. I'd like to compare him to a Marriott concierge. But that would be a disservice to Bob. He is much better than that.

Bea is wonderful as well, and we so enjoyed getting to know her a bit. She is very accomplished in her own right. More than that, she is just a very sweet, compassionate, and caring person.

I will add that the gravel road up to Sea Breeze is a bit of a trek. So make sure you have your SUV with 4WD. But I'm 65 and a city driver .. and I made it.

I'm not sure if I would describe the Sea Breeze as an 'earthly paradise', but it comes pretty close. Thank you Bob and Bea for an unforgettable experience.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Casa Seabreeze surpasses the expectations. There were 10 of us and there was plenty of space to accommodate even 2 more. Bob and Bea are great, very helpful, gave us very good advices. You DO need an SUV for sure. You need it for both the ground clearance and the 4x4 traction needed on the dirt road.

You can't beat this

  • 5 of 5

Four of us visited Sea Breeze last year and were really impressed with what Bob and Bea were providing. So much so that three of us returned for a longer stay this year and found Sea Breeze to be even better. The covered area and outdoor kitchen are wonderful improvements and we really enjoyed our cool mid-morning brunches at the outdoor table. The grounds seem to have hundreds of new plantings with most of them in full bloom. The property is beautifully maintained and if you search youtube movies for "Sea Breeze Casa and Nature Reserve" you will se a beautiful video of the location.

Bob and Bea are wonderful hosts, never intrusive but always ready to answer questions or provide additional service. Before we arrived, I had difficulty securing a commitment for a 4wd rental car and asked Bob if he could help. He replied, within hours, with a contact and quote. This year Bea took us to see some undeveloped beachfront property that they have at Playa Linda. It was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen: Hawaii has nothing like this.

We had selected booking dates for a 2018 return and discovered someone had already booked ahead of us, so don’t wait too long. We are building a new return plan now.

Most Memorable Vacation Ever!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to put into words our time spent at Seabreeze simply put the property is Magical, the thought and care that has gone into the house and grounds is outstanding, from the outdoor lounging area around the incredible infinity pool with a killer view complete with an outdoor shower and kitchen, to the luxurious bedrooms, this property will not disappoint.

Bob and Bea Kable are wonderful hosts who are available to answer any questions and offer many ideas for outings in the area, we highly recommend the ATV ride to the farm in Tres Piedras, it was the highlight of our trip. The house is in the middle of a nature reserve so the view in unobstructed and what a view!!!! We made sure we were there for every sunset and moonrise, one night we turned off all the lights, laid in the pool and watched for shooting stars, like we said magical! Now the animals on the property are plentiful, waking to the toucans and parrots singing in the morning, watching the monkeys twice a day jump through the trees to get some bananas, we even saw three baby monkeys! Bea's love of animals truly makes this a very special place on earth.

Seabreeze is close to some of the most beautiful beaches we have seen, Manuel Antonio has a few where the waves are awesome, I couldn't get my husband out of the water he said he felt like a 10 year old boy again riding every wave to the shore! Great restaurants are very close in Dominical, but if you enjoy cooking this house has an amazing fully stocked indoor and outdoor kitchen, getting fresh fruit, veggies and fish from the farmers market and just throwing it all on the grill was great because leaving the view to go somewhere else is next to impossible!

Honestly this was he best vacation experience we have ever had and we have traveled extensively all over the world and we have never rebooked a vacation while we were still on the vacation, but we did this time, Costa Rica has boundless places to visit and experience we want to see as much as possible and knowing we have a "Home away from Home" to come back to at the end of the day made the decision easy.

Thank you Bob and Bea for an amazing experience, see you next year!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

No words can explain how truly amazing this place is. But I'll try.

We had arrived a little late Friday night in the pouring rain , thought we knew the way,after a failed attempt to make it the house on our own . We had to turn back and stop at a local restaurant and call Bob and Bea at 9:00 at night and with no questions asked Bob came and met us and led the way. Bea was waiting for us with umbrellas. Once we arrived at the house we couldn't have been more pleased. The house is truly an oasis !

We had 7 people on this vacation . The house comfortably accommodated everyone. The house has every amenity you could imagine and then some not to mention the amazing outdoor living space with a Ridiculous infinity pool and a brand new BBQ , outdoor shower and fire pit over looking the amazing landscape.There are 3 separate living quarters all with satellite tvs and DVD players.

The house and grounds are impeccable .

The wild life on the property is truly amazing , you can see toucans,monkeys,exotic birds even a sloth made an appearance with her baby in tow.

Bob and Bea are truly two of the greatest people I've had the pleasure of meeting.

They took care of everything for us even before we arrived in Costa Rica.

Our activities included fishing trips (snook and mahi-mahi) very successful btw, horseback riding to the waterfalls,shopping in dominical , numerous local restaurants and bars ,beaches most times we didn't want to leave the property.

We will be returning sooner than later ! Thanks again Bob and Bea !

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!

Dominical is the closest town to Seabreeze Casa and has some of the best surfing and eco-tourism activities in the world. Haciendo Baru is close by. 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.
