About the property

Condo, 9 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 10+ Baths, (Sleeps up to 25)

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 Puntarenas

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.

Award-Winning Luxury Ocean View Condo 275 Yds from the Beach
average rating of 4.962963 based on 27 reviews

The property was good. I really enjoyed my stay. This is a great place for couples.

  • 4 of 5

Our group wasn't ready for this experience and without the help of Javier we might have had an awful time. Do not rent a car just let Javier set up transportation to and from the airport. Also let Javier set up transportation to Jaco if needed. There are a few restaurants down from the house and along the beach. There are limited stores so try and buy everything at the Walmart in San Jose before traveling to the house. The only problem we had was the internet going in and out but sometimes you need to let go of all the electronics and social media to enjoy time with the people you are with.

Beautiful home, some how even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

I was with a group of 18 friends celebrating new years and we all had very high hopes for the property based on the description and pictures. All of these hopes were exceeded. It's a beautiful home in a beautiful location. I can't recommend it enough, thanks Dave!

A beautiful space in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We took a group of 26 for a yoga retreat. 18 stayed in this beautiful home and the other 8 stayed in a nearby property owned by the same owners that was also beautiful. The views from the common living areas and most of the bedrooms are absolutely incredible, and the ocean waves make beautiful background noise. Several fun excursions are close and Javier, who manages the house, is a wonderful resource for any needs that arise. We did yoga by the rooftop pool twice a day and enjoyed beautiful Costa Rica with ziplining, river rafting, waterfall hiking and jumping, surfing lessons, horseback rides, and trips to nearby Jaco, Quepos and Manuel Antonio Park. This was an amazing trip!

A gem in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

From day one our guests were impressed and happy to stay at Vista de Sirena. From the bedrooms to the rooftop everything was top notch! The service Javier, Arturo, and Alan provided was very comforting. We look forward to coming back soon to do it all over again. Thank you for the great hospitality!!

Dream wedding venue

  • 5 of 5

After extensive research, we chose Alan's property to host our wedding and he thankfully said yes. Esterillos Oeste is incredibly charming, and this property is absolutely exquisite top to bottom. We were able to house both of our entire families and hold our ceremony and reception dinner on the roof. The roof bar and pool areas were perfect for our cocktail reception and after party. Inside the condos, every detail is polished and we were left wanting nothing. The true gem of this property however, is Javier and Arturo the two local property managers. Any time there was a minor hiccup or something we needed, they sprung into action with gusto and incredible kindness and made sure we had everything we needed. I can't imagine how we could have had the wedding without their help. In town, Los Almendros, Rancho Coral, Super Sol, Surf Mi, and Velero Azul were all incredibly friendly and charming. Alan, Javier, Arturo and all of the residents/businesses of Esterillos Oeste made our wedding an absolute dream come true and we will always hold a fond place in our hearts for them. If you're looking for a wedding venue/accommodations in Costa Rica, look no further because this property (and more specifically the people involved) will ensure you're dreams come to life. I cannot thank everyone enough for their help, and I hope we can come back sooner than later!
