About the Property

Charming, Colorful, Fully Furnished Modern Villa With Private Boat Dock

Charming, colorful, fully furnished two-bedroom, two-bathroom modern villa located on riverfront property with private boat dock. This is Costa Rica at its most stunning and diverse, as it was 20 years ago, yet with all the features and comforts of home!

This is the place for an authentic Costa Rican adventure! Perfect for families, nature lovers, explorers and fishermen. See gorgeous wildlife from your front balcony and on trips along the river – scarlet macaws, toucans, spider and howler monkeys, sloths and other incredible species.

The sea is about 30 minutes away by boat. Bass, snook, red snapper, tuna, sailfish and marlin are just a few of the fish you can find, and reasonably priced guides are located in Sierpe village, less than 10 minutes from the house. Your guide can arrange for your catch to be freshly cooked at one of the local open-air restaurants overlooking the river.

Corcovado National Park, one of the most diverse biological corridors in the world, is just a boat ride away. Corcovado is known for its dolphin and whale populations. Cano Island, Drake’s Bay and the Osa peninsula offer stunning snorkeling, diving, and swimming on pristine beaches, as well as guided nature walks for all ages and abilities. You can arrange a tour at any of the local restaurants or through our house manager, Rayna. Rayna is from Virginia and married to a local officer from the country's environmental agency, speaks fluent Spanish and has lived in Sierpe for years. She can arrange all your tours, including fishing, trips to Corcovado, and fabulous cultural tours of local tribes, where you can learn about and purchase their tribal carved masks, as well as to the mysterious ancient spheres that are found here. If you are interested in turtles, a major conservation area is about 30-40 minutes away, along with a number of stunning Pacific beaches, caves and waterfalls. There's a packet of information at the house, and we'll be happy to share more information on any or all of these options


Sierpe town is not overpopulated with tourists and has retained a safe, friendly atmosphere not often found in the big resort towns.

This is a tropical paradise in a tranquil, scenic location!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Steve and Barbara live in North Carolina but wanted to spend several months a year in Costa Rica. After looking at locations up and down the coast, they chose Sierpe for its friendly atmosphere, stunning wildlife, great fishing, and proximity to some of the most pristine ecological areas on the planet.

Why Bahía Drake, Costa Rica:
You will find all the comforts of home, and our property manager, Rayna, will meet you when you arrive, get you settled, and make sure you know about all the natural wonders and amazing attractions of this exquisite area. If you want to just relax, you can view wildlife right from the balcony! Very comfortable, colorful and tastefully furnished casa.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The biological diversity of the area is world famous, whether you want nature walks, boat trips or snorkeling/diving. Fabulous fishing too. The property is furnished with Costa Rican art - colorful and homelike! The views from the balcony over the river, with scarlet macaws overhead and toucans in the trees, are unmatched!
