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 Hatillo
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.

Appropriately named Casa Del Vista
We have been home for what feels like forever now, I contemplated not providing a review for no reason other than not wanting to tell the world how fantastic Casa Del Vista is...
We have already booked with Kris and Dave for next year so I think we are safe...at least for the time being.
Casa Del Vista was our first "non-resort" vacation...it will be the measure we use to evaluate all future vacations by. In the past we have spent an enormous amount of energy and time all in efforts to find a nice a resort. Normally, once checked in, we have spent a great deal of money signing up for excursions just to get off of the resort.
Casa Del Vista is better than advertised and a welcome change, the pictures do not do it justice. Kris was very helpful through the booking process while providing us great advice and travel tips, it really helped make our entire trip easier and a complete success.
Although there is lots to see and do in the area, we found ourselves entertained by the simplest things, a trip down and up the mountain from and to the house, to a simple trip for groceries in Uvita was an entertaining experience all on it's own. We did go on an ATV excursion with Karl, "Diamante Verde Tours", our guide "J" was amazing as was the tour he led us on...the machines on the other hand left a lot to be desired, not so well maintained in my opinion...if you are considering an ATV Tour I highly recommend that you search for a different provider.
At the house we saw lots of wildlife daily, everything from toucans and parakeets to kingbirds, one day a troop of white faced monkeys came in from the north and gave us a bit of a show of acrobatics while we had breakfast poolside...WoW was it ever cool!
This vacation was by far the most stationary and relaxed that we have ever been. The view is absolutely breath taking and does not get old! WE CANNOT WAIT for next years winter getaway!
Shawn we are so glad you enjoyed your stay and we are looking forward to having you back as our guests!!! For ATV we have always went through Jungle ATV in Uvita. But Dominical Information Center, just started a ATV tour and we are going to check them out in July. Sounds like they have a great trip with waterfalls and more. I have not seen the Monkeys yet!! every time we are there, they haven't been around. But I love to hear that they have been visiting . Pura Vida Kris and Dave.
Breath-takingly beautiful! From the moment of wow, as we stepped through the front doors and captured the expansive coast view over the pool, we were in awe of this beautiful location. The toucans were up in the trees singing as we first walked out on the deck and we saw them return every morning and evening.
The pool was beautiful! The large deck provided plenty of space for lounging both in the sun and in the shade. We enjoyed many nights sitting on the deck, with coloured pool lights and jungle sounds in the background. The home was designed perfectly so that every bedroom had access to the deck and pool through French doors. There was only two of us for this trip, but this home would be perfect for a family or three couples.
The home was beautiful and well taken care of. Alfredo and his staff did an excellent job cleaning the house and pool. The home was well stocked and they ensured that we had a wonderful stay by providing anything that we needed. I'm a tea drinker and he made sure to find me a teapot. He also replaced the blender and a couple of deck lights that needed repair. Unfortunately, there was a problem with the internet tower that occurred just before we arrived. Both Kris and Alfredo went out of their way to ensure that we had a cellular service in its place so that we could conduct some necessary business while we were away.
The location was very close to Dominical where we enjoyed several restaurants, nightlife, souvenir shops, and beach vendors. There was also a small grocery store which was very convenient. Best of all it was just 5 minutes up the road fromo beautiful beaches, Playa Linda and Playa Matapolo. We booked a mangrove kayaking tour from Pineapple Tours located in Dominical, which we would recommend.
We have already recommended this property to our a few groups of friends considering a vacation in Costa Rica and will continue to do so in the future.
Thank you so much Kris and Dave for sharing your beautiful home with us! We very much appreciate the excellent customer service that you provided both before and during our trip.
Gary we are so glad that you enjoyed our house and we look forward to you coming again! Sorry again for the trouble with the internet. But I am pleased to say it is FIXED and we have service once again. They built a tower up on our hill, so we should not have this issue again. Thanks again for the nice review. Pura Vida, Kris and Dave
Two Weeks Of Total Relaxation
We stayed here for 2 weeks with our friends who we have made numerous trips to CR. Of all the houses we have rented this was the best. The house is laid out perfect, bedrooms at each end of the house with living area and kitchen in between. Each bedroom with very comfortable beds, looks out over the pool and the super view. The patio area is well thought out, huge overhang for shade and shelter from occasional shower, lots of chairs and table and chairs to enjoy your meals. The pool is a hit also with the 4 stools and bench seating all around the edges.
Kris is the best owner we have ever dealt with, lots of suggestions sent to us before our stay, and checking in to ensure we were having a great time. Thanks again Kris
Alfredo checked us in and was always there to answer our questions or deal with any concerns we had. Whatever you need he will get it done for you. His sister cleaned the house after our first week, never met her, but she did an amazing job.
Our activities included many walks, aggressive trails at the top near the house, and nice flat walks on the trail parallel to the beach north of Dominical. We also went deep sea fishing out of Playa Domincalito, ask for Manuel, he speaks English, four different times. Manuel and his Captain are Ticos and will show you a very good time. Highly recommend them if you are into fishing. Also ask Alfredo about Thermal Springs not far from house, great little drive and you get to soak in natural hot springs for only $5
We ate out at a few different restaurants and cooked some meals at the house. Restaurant at bottom of hill very good and convenient, try the seafood soup. Jolly Roger has nice view and good wings. Lots of places in Dominical , only tried a couple, very hot in town.
Thanks again Kris and Dave for the opportunity to stay here, would love to return.
Randy I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We try our best to make our clients stay as comfortable as possible. We would love for you come back and stay.
Kris and Dave
Well I will start again...fat fingered the first and deleted everything. Anyway, we cannot say enough good things about the home. Your assistance with unforeseen schedule changes was excellent. Alfredo met us at the visitor center and took us up the "little" hill to your home and it was just what we had hoped it would be. Open, clean and hospitable with every convenience readily available. The ocean view was magnificent, unbelievable sunsets, humming birds and toucans every morning! I know you spent a lot of time building the black folder and you need to know it was a great touch with everything one needs to know about the local dining, beaches, banking, language and sites can be found there. We will be making additional trips to Costa Rica to catch those things we failed to see and do and plan on a re-connect with you in the future. As of right now I have been approached by other friends about where to stay.....you guessed it, Casa Del Vista! PURA VIDA from the Rigby Family
Ken thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you again as a guest at our home.
Kris and Dave
Paradise overlooking the ocean
We stayed at this property for a week. The pool was incredible, the house was fantastic and the views were unbelievable. Every part of this trip as an adventure and a blast.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come back and see us again! Pura Vida Kris and Dave
Amazing views and visits from toucans!
We loved staying in casa del vista. From the adventurous ride up the mountain to the stunning view and a daily visit from the same pair of toucans, we couldn’t have been happier. We loved relaxing in the pool and the hammock and found plenty to do in dominical and the surrounding towns. Alfredo the manager was very accommodating and helpful and waited for us for an hour as we were stuck in traffic on our meet up day. Would highly recommend staying here for anyone. Families, couples, friends.
Daniel I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Next time you come to Costa Rica, I hope you keep us in mind. Pura Vida
Kris and Dave
We do have a book of listings for all types of activities and places to dine. We also have contacts for you to speak to personally if you desire. Additional travel tips: Don't exchange $ at the airport, do it here at any store or bank. Most take American Money, bring smaller bills. If you request information - ask for Richard and tell him Dave Biser referred you - to get fair pricing.
