Why Diane Dalton--Owner/manager chose Puntarenas

Living the Dream!!! Adventure, serenity, beauty....just a few of the adjectives that come to mind that describe the Southern Zone. As we drove up the mountain road and looked upon this beautiful estate, we were entranced! This property has the perfect combination of privacy, security, and accessibility to the regions best beaches and attractions of the Pacific region. Perched on a high lot (1500') above the Pacific Ocean, the breezes and sunset views combine into tropical nirvana. Ten degrees (F) cooler than the beach and yet just a few kilometers away with an eagle eye view of the breaking surf. 'The Hills of Portalon' is a private 350 acre Eco-development, with just 27 home sites and more than 150 acres dedicated to rainforest protect.

What makes this estate unique

Vista Del Fuego is positioned perfectly to act as a private and secluded home base to countless adventures in the 'Southern Zone' of Costa Rica. The estate is located just 20 minutes south of Manuel Antonio and 15 minutes north of Dominical. It sits on a west facing hillside inside a secure gated property and abuts primary rainforest. The property has a seasonal stream running through the center adding to the ambiance.

Come enjoy this magical property! Pura Vida!

We stayed in two different houses in Costa Rica. This one set the gold standard. It is a beautiful home, well equipped for cooking and comfortable living. Between Angie's cleaning and our use of the washer and dryer we were able to stay well ahead of the grit and grime that comes with sight seeing and our more adventurous forays to waterfalls and the beach. Rambo provided just the right amount of assistance to our group. The pool and pool table kept all our grandkids well occupied after the days activities were done. The property and scenery were exquisite. Two things to keep in mind. The recommended 4WD is really mandatory. The drive up the hill is safe, but not for the faint of heart. You are also a fair distance (Quepos) from a reasonably sized grocery store. A little planning and that was never a problem. We loved our stay and would recommend this property to any and all.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.

My Response

We so appreciate your review! It warms my heart thinking of families and friends enjoying each other and making memories at our Costa Rica home and enjoying the beauty and activities that the south pacific offers! We thank you for mentioning our team...Angie and Rambo! Along with Armando, our landscaper and general maintenance person, we know how fortunate we are. They work tirelessly to make every stay perfect for each of our guests. Please visit us again! Although our current pool is working great, we are in the final stages of planning for our new 2000sf+ pool complex that will include swim-up bar to the covered cabana with outdoor grilling, sink and refrigerator. The expansive deck will be constructed of native Costa Rican hardwood. So...consider this a special invitation to see us again with completion mid-June of 2017!!! Thanks again!!

Stunning estate, perfect staff, the most fun our family has ever had!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a vacation with all the luxuries, this is the place!!! We were ecstatic to see this spectacular estate perched on the mountain! The views were unbelievable! The added touches make this place like a 5 star resort with so many amenities! Every person in our group had a robe waiting in the closet, the towels were thick and soft, the house was cleaned every day by the wonderful Angie, and there was even a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for us when we arrived! This review would not be complete without talking about the service. The owners and concierge answered all questions, helping us with travel, booking tours and making recommendations based on our preferences. Rambo was amazing! He is not only the nicest concierge but also a fabulous culinary chef!! We loved the first meal he prepared so much that we booked 2 additional nights! Definitely have him prepare tuna! It was the best I've EVER had! It was so wonderful to sit out on the balcony each morning, and drink our coffee with an ocean view! We were pleasantly surprised that even during the Green Season, we had plenty of sunshine to explore the area and do several tours recommended and booked by Rambo. This estate has a good sized area to play soccer, a pool with an ocean view, a billiards table, and a number of board games! It is a great place for all ages! We have traveled to 5 star resorts in Cancun, as well as other home away properties in the Dominical/Quepos area, and nothing has compared to the service we received at Vista Del Fuego! The owners, as well as the staff made us feel like family. It's safe to say that this is truly our new home away from home. There is no doubt we will be coming back to Vista Del Fuego as often as possible!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your writing a review to tell others about your experiences at Vista del Fuego. It pleases me so much that our team is so fabulous to our guests! Although we take pride in providing the best sheets, towels, amenities, we could not do this alone and are delighted with our good fortune in finding Rambo (chef and concierge), Angie (housekeeping) and Armando (groundskeeper and maintenance). To have a resort-quality experience, we must have a wonderful team. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the beauty and adventures that the estate and Costa Rica offers. We would love to have you back for another fantastic vacation! Please check the progress of the new resort-quality pool!!! The total plans are more than 2000 sf and will have in-pool loungers, a huge cabana with grill, refrigerator, sink, and plenty of space for outdoor dining and sun bathing. It will be completed by June 2017 and we are thrilled to offer this to our guests to have an even better experience! Thanks again! Hope to "see" you soon!

5 Stars!

  • 5 of 5

The name of this property, Vista del Fuego, couldn't be more fitting as our week at VDF was paradise indeed! Our group of 12 adults found the grounds to be simply stunning, the accomodations inviting and comfortable, the service impeccable, and the sunsets truly breathtaking. We can only sing the praises of Rambo, who we booked for chef services--preparing a delicious daily breakfast and evening cuisine. Angie was there each day cleaning the entire house, and tending our little messes and making beds. Rambo, also our concierge was extremely helpful arranging last minute excursions for us and answering questions throughout the week. We truly had an amazing week at VDF and cannot wait to return in the future! Thank you, Diane and Chris for sharing your beautiful estate!

We are offering the old prices to guests who book before completion.

Amazing property in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Costa Rica and so fortunate to hit a home run on our first stay - the booking process was easy, Sharon was AMAZING to deal with. Great customer service. She sent precise directions, and more importantly a great list of recommendations. Loved her restaurant picks, her zip lining suggestion blew us away, and her other suggested day trips (sea caves, water falls, etc) were spot on. The house is an amazing property backing up to the jungle. Clean, comfortable, and with a ton of linens, it had everything we needed, including a great neighbor down the road who ensured that our stay was a great one. Modern appliances, and all the amenities of home, this house is truly a luxury property located in the best part of Costa Rica. Five star plus! We hope to be back soon!

Amazing Home, wish we could stay longer

  • 5 of 5

We were just wowed with this fantastic place from the moment we walked in. The place was clean and beautiful. There was plenty of room for 9 of us. The laundry was a big plus and the kitchen had everything we needed for meal preparation. There were two separate air conditioning units, and one was malfunctioning the first night but I sent an email to Marlon and he had someone there making repairs early the next morning. The pool was beautiful and refreshing with incredible views. The location couldn't be beat, secluded and private. It was a little challenging to get to. We couldn't find a van that fit 9 and had 4-wheel drive, but since we were pretty loaded down we were able to make the climb. Smaller, 2-wheel drive cars might find it difficult to get to the house. The house was well stocked with movies and music and books. None of us wanted to leave.

Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay. We try our best to make sure our guests are aware of the need for a 4X4 but we have had many guests choose the two wheel alternative. It is not easy to make it up the hill but it is possible. We love our home is Costa Rica and are happy that you loved it too. Thank you so much for choosing Vista del Fuego. Sharon

Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5

This home fits perfectly with a stay in Costa Rica. Set high enough in the hills to get a cooler temperature, this home allowed us the most the most amazing views imaginable without having to share them with anyone (other than the occasional monkey and butterfly). It was well equipped with all the modern amenities, and the WiFi worked great.

This home was situated perfectly between Quepos and Dominical, with little food stores and restaraunts nearby. The drive up to the house is fun, and 4wd is recommended.

The pool was amazing to relax in during sunset after long fun days exploring. The only bummer for us is that this home is already booked for our next planned trip!
