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.

An Exceptionally Tranquil and Well-Appointed Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival the house was spotless and we enjoyed the terrazzo and pool area very much. The neighborhood water pump went out on our second day, but Alfredo the manager, worked with the neighbors to get the pump reset and water flowing to the community again. So, with that one little hiccup resolved, everything was perfect for our stay and we highly recommend this vacation home. J & B and kids, Dallas Texas

My husband. My son and my sister drove to Hatillo to thus lovely place up on the hill. After the initial scare of driving for quiet bit up, we got the this 3 bedrooms home. The view was amazing. This place was just what we needed to relax. We love Costa Rica and all the culture. We were able to cook our own meals which is what we wanted because we are very specific of how we prepare our simple nutritious meals. We were close to places where we were able to buy fresh fruits and fish. A couple of time .we ate out in UVITA, a town near by. The owners are fantastic so and Alfredo the caretaker was ready to answer questions and offer suggestions. We had an issue with water which was beyond anyone's control;however, the owners were very kind and even though it was not their fault , offered us 2 night refund for which we are very grateful. In all, the location of this place and the the house was absolutely wonderful! Thank you Kris and Dave for sharing your dream home with us!

Owner's Response: I'm so happy that you enjoyed your stay. we take pride in making things right when something comes up that is out of our control, like the water. We have a community well and the pump went down and it took a day for the parts to come in and get the water back on. we do have a tank to store water in these cases, and thinking about getting another one. Thanks again for choosing our home and if you every come back to Costa Rica, look us up. Thanks Kris

Amazing, spectacular view

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful beyond words! So peaceful and serene, I didn't want to leave. The house is well stocked and really appreciated the coffee waiting until we could get to the store. Alfredo the house manager was wonderful and there is a binder with very helpful information. The road was difficult and if you like to come and go frequently it might not be the best place. We were content to explore during the day and once we were home we stayed put. Evenings around the pool were fine for us. I loved the area and the beach was deserted.

This last week that fixed the road again, so it won't be so ruff. Please keep us in mind when you come to Costa Rica again! Pura Vida Kris and Dave

Magical - Experience the jungle and the ocean all in one!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning! The hum of the jungle all day and night is magic. The house is beautiful. Everything you need for a very comfortable stay. Bathrooms are large and gorgeous. The drive up to the house adds to the adventure! Toucans in the trees, views to rival any in the world. We were blessed to have had the opportunity to be here for a week. Beaches are empty and stunning. I can't say enough how much we loved it here. We would come back in a heart beat. Make sure you do the horseback ride to the Naucaya Waterfall - I've been all around the place and that was my favorite excursion ever. I hate to leave Tico time and back to the hustle and bustle of American time. So long Costa Rica!
