Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • My husband and I stayed at The Bahia Vista Rental in Golfito, CR--it was quite a great place. It was clean and pretty spacious. The kitchen was equipped with pretty well everything one would expect. The room overlooks the Banana Bay Marina--it was great sitting on the balcony, enjoying the spectacular sunset. We'll definitely stay there again; Katie and Tim are very nice and friendly people.
    Thanks again & Pura Vida!!!

  • Golfito is truly a wonderful place in Costa Rica! Have a very nice and comfortable accommodation makes it even better, Bahia Vista was a godsend hahaha, warm and cool at the same time, wide space allowed us to share different activities, cuisine and everything else is very well equipped and Katie always put her special touch. We had the sunset right in front of us, take a coffee or a tea appreciating was truly amazing!, Also we appreciated the beautiful scenery of heavy rain, super-pura vida!. Katie gave us the opportunity to travel by kayak on the main Gulf and had a great adventure!!!!.
    My wife and I are very happy in our memories in Bahia Vista.

Katie Duncan arrived to Costa Rica while traveling aboard the sailing vessel 'Caribbee', pleasure cruising with Captain Tim Leachman. With no previous thought to making a home abroad or settling permanently outside their home town of Santa Barbara, California, their cruise down the pacific coast was only meant to be a short escape - a season of fun on the ocean. But something magical happened during those first weeks at anchor in the port town of Golfito . The beautifully calm natural harbor, the verdant green and fantastical sounds of the surrounding jungle, the welcoming bustle of a quaint port town on shore.... It all conspired to lure them into staying longer than planned. One thing led to another and opportunities just kept presenting themselves. The chance for mortgage free property ownership, an easy infrastructure for setting up a business and realizing the dream of self employment, the lure of a more casual lifestyle among a culture of practical and economical living.... Yes, a life with this kind of adventure and joy was too tempting not to embrace! In Katie's words, "there was never a question- we loved Golfito from the moment we pulled into port. It just took a few years to really see and believe that we could make choices to stay and that we could succeed! It's an incredibly bold thing to take a new and unconventional route in life, but not nearly as difficult as one might imagine. Yes, there were challenges along the way. But looking back on it, overcoming the obstacles often made the journey even more exciting and brought more satisfaction and rewards than could have ever been anticipated." Sharing the fun, the experiences and the expertise gained over the past 20 is Katie's vocation - . and so obviously her pleasure! Katie and the team of competent people working along with her at Land Sea Services are very well equipped with the experience and ability to guide you into your adventures, assisting you all along the journey!
