The award-winning Vista De Sirena is located in a quiet and secluded fishing village 15 miles south of Jacó. The building sits on a hillside just 275 meters from the beach and offers one of the most amazing views of the ocean along the entire western coast of Costa Rica. Enjoy a short walk to the beach where you can put your feet in the sand, play in tide pools, snorkel, swim or surf. You can also charter a world-class fishing tour in nearby Quepos or Herradura, or join up with one of the local fishermen right here in Esterillos Oeste. The waters are teeming with Snapper, Jack and a variety of other delicious fish. A short scenic drive will lead you to Jacó for shopping, dining, and great night life. A 40-minute drive in the opposite direction will take you to Manuel Antonio, the most popular national park in Costa Rica, where you can enjoy hiking and swimming and experience a diversity of wildlife.
Each of the building's three air conditioned units has a spacious entry with plenty of room to leave your surfboards or anything else you need to store behind locked doors. On the right hand side of the walkway you'll find the entry to the main living area, kitchen and dining space. At the other end of the main living area you'll enjoy the panoramic view of the ocean through the wall of glass with large sliding doors that open up to private balconies. For added privacy, each unit resides on its own floor and has three bedroom suites. Two suites feature king beds; the third suite has a queen bed; One of the bedrooms has a full bed that pulls out from under the king bed for additional sleeping accommodations. Additionally, each bedroom features pillow-top beds with memory foam toppers.
The rooftop is an ideal place to enjoy the company of close friends and good food while sitting at the palapa bar, lounging on the deck, or swimming in the infinity pool.
The penthouse unit comes with a few added luxuries. The main living area is considerably larger with more windows to enhance the views and a gorgeous teak-paneled ceiling. If you want to the enjoy the cover of being indoors and still feel the ocean breeze, the entire ocean-facing wall slides open providing a spacious entry to the balcony.

About David Payne
Photographer from Orem, Utah, USA. Love to surf and travel. We've travelled to Costa Rica ever since our first visit in 2000.
David Payne purchased this Condo in 2010
Why David Payne chose Esterillos Oeste
We fell in love with Esterillos Oeste when we visited in 2007. Soon after, we bought our first condo and chose to invest in the area. The views from where we built the condo are among the best we've found along the entire Pacific coast. The locals are friendly and easy going. Esterillos is more laid back and tranquil than the busier Jaco and Manuel Antonio tourist areas.
What makes this Condo unique
The beach is an easy 275 meter walk down the hill from the building and is easy to reach on foot even carrying a surfboard. The 3500 square-foot gathering area on the rooftop of the building hosts a pool, bar area with palapa, and incredible views. The building includes a security system and a full-time manager. ***We do not offer our facility as a wedding venue. No bachelor parties, female/male escorts on the property.***

The owner Dave response was fast and he made the booking process as easy as possible for me since this was my first time using HomeAway.
The property was better than the pictures. Each floor was equipped with everything you needed to cook and plenty of space to accommodate my group of 18 with room to spare. Just a little note the property is open to the outside you will experience insects you have never seen before and we had iguanas hanging with us everyday at the pool.
Javier, Property manager, he arranged all our travel pick up, excursions, and booked the cook for us ( which was amazing and they will customize their menu to fit your taste.) Eventhough Javier did a good job ensuring the group got around, I would recommend getting your own transportation it will be cheaper.
Surroundings: the beach is literally a 5 minute walk from the property. There is an amazing restaurant which is about a 12min walk from the property called Los Almendros-I ate there everyday we didn't have the cooks. A small grocery store is 5 minute walk from the house as well. I would suggest buying food in San Jose or fruit from the fruit stands on your way to the house.
Overall it was amazing and I would definitely stay here again.
Pictures do not represent the condition of the property!
Me and 16 of my closest friends traveled to Costa Rica for what we thought was going to be a luxurious vacation. We arrived onsite to find the outside conditions of the home difficult to navigate and in poor condition. In addition, the home was not cleaned to standards, mold in the lower areas, bathrooms not properly kept up, bugs found in two of the beds and a broken air conditioner system in one of the rooms. After speaking with Javi he informed us the owner had not kept proper upkeep and this was not the first complaint. In addition, we spoke with the homeowner who promised a refund that we never received. I would not recommend this property. I have pictures and videos as proof! I hope others have a better experience.
Great Time in Esterillos Oeste
We had a full house for our wedding party between Feb. 25 and March 2 this year and it was fantastic. The home is absolutely beautiful with amazing views and secure gates in case you want to feel that extra security. The kitchens had everything we needed to cook full meals and the Super Sol down the hill had pretty much anything you would need to do some grocery shopping. If you needed more there was a Maxi Pali (grocery store) about 15 minutes south of Esterillos Oeste. Javier was very helpful and available when we needed him which helped to make everything less stressful during our stay. The pool and roof top 'deck' area was awesome and the kids loved being able to swim until they dropped. There were washer and dryers available which was helpful so we didn't have to over pack. I did have a couple of marks left on some of my clothing from the upstairs washing machine, but nothing that I couldn't try to get out later or live with. Everyone felt like they could be together but also feel separate if they needed their own space. If there were to be a down fall I would say the water pressure wasn't that great. But the shower upstairs was huge with a beautiful view of the ocean. There are several places to try eat at in this little community, 2 surf shops to get boards from with very helpful people that are always willing to answer questions. There is also a local baker at The Village Bakery, just down the hill, that can set you up with breads, rolls, and smoked meats which were delicious. And if you need a photographer for your wedding or any other event I would look up Beau Maisel Photography because he is amazing. Overall my experience working with David the home owner was very good and he was able to keep in touch with me for my many questions. Javier the house manager is kind and helpful. I highly recommend staying here any time during the year for the house, the community, and the beach. - M
I forgot to add, if you want just a great local meal or someone to cater your party Los Almendros in Esterillo Oeste was amazing, professional, and DELICIOUS!!!
Aesthetically Beautiful; Mechanical Nightmare
Beautiful property. Javi is wonderful. He tries his best to accommodate needs. (If he gives you a ride anywhere, be sure to keep a ledger and receipts of payment) The listing says 24 people and there were not even 24 face towels on the property. Yet if you mess up any of their towels, its $25 per towel! Unrealistic expectations being next to a beach. One towel was used to clean up vomit, I understand. However, the other towels David claimed we reuined were used to dry off from beach. We then had to use those same towels to wash our faces. We were then accused of stealing pillows and bathroom mats! Not to mention the first night the power was out at their sister property whice we also booked. Dave took one day off the charges and offered an apology with things “we could have done differently.” (Yea rented a different property) Then after our wedding, which the venue was perfect for by the way, the power went out at the property. Javi got it to work but told us not to use the washer and dryer. So tell me again how we were supposed to wash the “soiled” towels? Every issue, the owner tried to turn back on us and we found that to be unprofessional and not worth the amount of money spent for this property. I personally walked through every single room upon arrival and at departure. The mats we were accused of stealing werent even there. They were eventually “found on the roof” with a hint of an accusatory tome as if we moved the mats up there. Why on earth would we do that? Prior to booking, I asked several times if holding my wedding there was fine and they insisted yes. There were barely 23 people in the house at once and only 16 actually stayed on property. So power outages should not have occurred. There should have been enough towels. I initially informed Dave I wouldn’t write this review, but after he nickel and dimed me on towels when there werent enough to begin with. Deducting it from my deposit and Javi lying and saying he wasnt paid $50 for a trip to Jaco, here you have it. We are currently about to book another trip to Costa Rica but will be staying at a resort with proper amenities and a tad bit more professionalism. The only reason this even gets 2 stars is because my wedding was beautiful on the roof top. So if you are looking to hold a small ceremony on the roof, this property is perfect! Josie is great! She is personable and always looking for ways to work things out. Communication slacked at times but shes a student so I get it.
Doesn't get any better
Came with 7 friends and had a fantastic time. The house sits on the private hill and looks out at the water. A short 5 minute walk down the hill takes you right out to the beach. Inside, each bedroom has a king size bed and easy access to a bathroom. Each floor has a master suite with its own balcony and hammock which open up to amazing views you can see right from bed. The house manager Javier is very accommodating and can help you with any questions about the house or the area. The rooftop pool is tucked away next to a hill so you have privacy as well as great views of the ocean. The rooftop also has a bar area for mingling and BBQ as well as a private cabana with a couple of hammocks to get a break from the sun.
If you are traveling with a large group of people, you will not find a better deal than this!
Costa Rica is beautiful!
This house is by far one of the nicest homes I've ever seen. Gorgeous scenery across the horizon, walking distance to the beach that was clean even after a night of pouring rain. The 4 stars are in reference to the house alone, construction was happening on the road to practically everything there is to do - we sat in traffic each way for over 40 minutes. That took away from a full experience in enjoying the beautiful country, I recommend having multiple options in terms of transportation. If you are familiar with Costa Rica then the best bet is to rent your vehicle and go about. Javier tried his best in maneuvering around that but no luck, we atleast got to experience the delicious local restaurants and the ATV tour which was super fun!
Local activities: Surfing (5 surfing beaches nearby) Horseback riding (Discovery Horse Tours) Ziplining (Chiclets or Vista Los Sueños) Fishing (William from the village is great!) White water rafting (1 hour south in Quepos/Manuel Antonio)
