Interaction with Guests

Most of our guests appreciate the private and cozy quality of our very quaint accommodations. We've worked hard to furnish with every detail so you will feel at home and enjoy your independence. Residing on the adjacent property, we make ourselves available for questions of a local nature and for assistance as is practical when needed. We also have a waterfront office and travelers clubhouse with our pier, dock and moorings across the street where all our guests are welcome to relax along with the crews of visiting sailboats and locals who commonly drop by....

Convenient to several typical restaurants and immediately adjacent to the marinas, the neighborhood is walking distance to everything a visitor needs including groceries and the central areas.

  • We enjoyed our visit to Golfito and La Casita very much. We requested a change in accommodations to a little larger place with a fantastic view of the marina and Golfo Dulce. Our request was graciously granted and we were not disappointed with the casa. It was beautifully situated on the hillside overlooking the marina. The a/c was a welcome change from other locations, and very much appreciated at night. The place was very clean, well furnished and tastefully decorated with a nautical theme. The bed was very comfortable.
    Our hosts arranged reasonably priced tours, guides and fishing on the gulf. They also made recommendations for some must-see sights in the area.
    We had a great week in Costa Rica with Katie and Tim!

  • Bonito apartamento en el que nos alojó Katie haciendo un up grade! Después de dos días de dura caminata en Corcovado, fue un gustazo encontrar una casa tan bonita, limpia y con vistas a la bahía.
    Muy recomendable!

  • Stayed there for 4 days on my way to Puerto Jimenez. /Corcovado park.
    Nice studio on the hill (wifi, a/c, fridge and bathroom) with a fantastic view over the marina and Golfito.All conveniences are close(shops, restaurants,ATM ) and fishing with Froelon was very interesting and reasonably priced. He made me visit the whole of Golfo Dulce , the rios as we were fishing along.
    It was very pleasant so I booked again for 5 days on the way back from Puerto Jimenez.
    Good relaxing time!

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!
