This was our first time in Costa Rica and we loved it! What a beautiful environment with lovely people. We traveled as a group of nine with our six children and one friend ranging in ages 28-12 and everyone was happy-quite a feat! The drive from the airport was challenging as we had difficulty at the rental car place (making the reservation but not keeping the reservation) and that set us back time wise which brought us to the house in the dark, highly recommend daylight! And a four wheel drive is a must! We were greeted by Neil, the property manager for Libelula and the caretakers, Liche and Darlin. These wonderful people really made the stay here so personal with their kind and endearing ways, our children were so sad to say goodbye as they had grown so close to us. They were willing to help us with anything we needed. Liche was more than happy to get a fresh coconut for anyone to drink and Darlin makes a fantastic guacamole! Their son joined our boys for an evening soccer game each night! The house is very private,beautiful, nicely appointed, comfortable, especially the outdoor pool area. Better than the photos! We ate all our meals outdoors, the back pool area is so nice you don't feel a need to leave even though there are so many beautiful beaches and activities near by. We learned that the screen less front door stays open all day and that is what the vibe is all the time..every night we were awakened by the sounds of the monkeys in the trees, the birds in the morning and the amazing views from the house. A few thoughts if this is your first trip to Costa Rica, the water in this area is fine to drink, we felt safe but heeded warnings to not leave any belongings in the car or on the beach. Not all locals speak english but are willing to communicate with patience. The markets nearby are fine for daily needs and the restaurant options are plentiful especially if you are willing to drive. Beware of all the pedestrians walking or pushing strollers on the sides of the roads, even at night! We only planned one excursion, a deep sea fishing trip in Quepos, fabulous! Next time we will pre plan some other excursions because we learned that they do book up. We are surfers so we took the time to explore many beaches and areas which really gave a a feel for Costa Rica therefore we really recommend renting a vehicle.
We are looking forward to coming back as soon as possible!!

Our group of 5 just finished spending a week at La Libelula (3/4-3/9/2014) and I would totally recommend this property to others. You will find the property just as advertised, beautiful and in great condition. The house and surrounding area is lush and fully surrounded by thick jungle. We saw all varieties of wildlife at the house including: White Faced Capuchin Monkeys, Howler Monkeys, Iguanas, geckos and an endless variety of tropical birds.
Neil was very informative and provided us with great directions to and from the airport which made the drive stress-free and simple (you do not need to pay the extra $$ for a GPS). Neil also pointed out some exceptionally great local surf spots and some delicious local Tico places to eat. Thx for the great recommendations Neil.
Lecho and Darlene did an amazing job of taking care of the property (it is very well maintained and the grounds are very beautiful) and an even better job of cleaning up after us (doing our dishes, making our beds, doing our laundry etc…). The entire experience was magical and tranquil.
I had no problems getting my deposit back after our stay, in fact, the entire process was very smooth. La Libelula is ideal for adventure seekers looking to explore the Southern Pacific coast or families / couples looking for a relaxing /secluded property. You’ll definitely want to rent a 4x4 vehicle to access the house as there is a slightly steep incline to get there, but that is why the views and surrounding jungle are so pristine. The week couldn’t have been any better.

Astonishing Tropical Paradise!

We spent Christmas Holiday at La Libelua villa and had a wonderful time. The villa is amazingly beautiful and luxurious. We loved everything about the villa, especially the outdoor settings. We spent every evening by the pool watching the sunset.

From the moment we stepped into the villa to the day we left, Neil the manager, and Leo and Darlene, the care takers, took great care of us. Neil helped us with our rental car and all the activity bookings, while Leo and Darlene took care of our daily needs. Darlene cook many delicious Costa Rican meals for us. Thank you so much for making our vacation so memorable!

Wonderful Vacation

Words can not describe our visit to Costa Rica and this beautiful house! The pictures do not do the property justice. I was looking for a tranquil place to enjoy my family while taking in the wild life of the surrounding mountains and rain forest, as well as the beautiful ocean just below. This property provided just that plus a bonus - the caretakers, Lecho and his wife Darlene. They were very helpful and saw to all our needs. They were the best.

The most memorable moment came one morning while eating breakfast by the pool and suddenly there was a parade of Capuchin Monkeys making their way down the mountain right next to the house! We must have seen 30 just that morning alone. Toucans and monkeys for your neighbors - that's what I call paradise.

PERFECT VACATION!!

  • Submitted: Dec 20, 2013

This was our first time staying in Costa Rica. We have traveled many places and rented many houses! This was by far the best vacation we have had! Anything you could ever need/want is in this house. The house is in the perfect location - tucked up in the jungle with lots of privacy (very secure) but still a quick drive to the beaches/grocery stores. Our group of 4 enjoyed the house so much we didn't venture out much during the day! We stayed by the pool most days and then went out for dinner (there are many great restaurants in this area).The outdoor living space is AMAZING! The pictures and descriptions don't do this property justice - you have to see for yourself!

Neil and the property caretakers went out of their way everyday to make sure our trip was memorable! Neil was great about answering my many questions leading up to the trip. He will help you arrange any tour/excursion during the week. The caretakers made sure the house/pool were ALWAYS clean and they were extremely polite every time we encountered them!

We can't wait to go back!

September & October are the best months to see the huge humpback whales off the coast of Uvita. These whales migrate from thousands of miles away and come each year to the beautiful coastline of Costa Rica to mate and to give birth to their off spring. These huge gentle giants of the Ocean can be seen normally in groups or a mother with her off spring and they are apparently unconcerned being accompanied by the whale watchers boat. They can give spectacular shows of swimming agility by breaching, fin and tail slapping, lop tailing or simply blowing great plumes of air and water when then exhale up to 40 meter of height.
