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.

Two Weeks Of Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Simply Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

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 guessed it, Casa Del Vista! PURA VIDA from the Rigby Family

Amazing views and visits from toucans!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Kris and Dave quickly answered our questions and we were able to book a last minute spontaneous trip the week of Thanksgiving.

We arrived later than we expected but Alfredo patiently waited for us.

The house is simply amazing. Toucans entertained us while we enjoyed our morning coffee by the pool.

Pictures or words cannot describe the beautiful view from the house.

The location is very close to Nauyaca Falls, beautiful beaches and restaurants

We will definitely be back for a much longer stay!

Perfect Slice of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property is quiet, peaceful and well kept. It offers a stunning and picturesque setting to start and end each day. The views are amazing! After a day full of adventure and discovery of what Costa Rica has to offer this property is the perfect home base to come back to, like your own private retreat. Highly recommended.
