INCREDIBLE!!!

  • 5 out of 5
This property is absolutely everything that it is advertised as and more! The house is perfect for a relaxing vacation in luxury. Uvita has a wide range of high quality restaurants and local Sodas to dine at. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone that is looking to visit the area. PSA When they say you will need a 4X4 Vehicle please trust me you will. We went as a group of 8 never felt cramped, had a blast in and around the pool. Awesome Vacation!

WOW!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Me, my wife and our 6 year old daughter as well as another small family of 4 stayed for a week at this wonderful property and space was never an issue. Words couldn't really do the beauty of the property and the surroundings any justice. The house was immaculate and very well maintained. The care takers were top notch and were busy all the time doing our laundry, cleaning the pool, and even cooking our dinner when asked to for a small fee. We were fortunate enough to go on a fun offshore fishing trip in neighboring Quepos and brought back a nice Dorado for Darlene to cook for us. She really is a talented cook!! The pool was the hub of the house and well appointed seating and hammocks kept us close to the kids, but far enough away to enjoy some adult time. Very highly recommend this property any time of year. The house is top notch, secure, within civilization and the people are equally impressive!!!!! Pura Vida!

MAGNIFICENT TRIP!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Well well well, what a trip, house, vacation, experience. So this was our second trip to Costa Rica but our first to this region. We arrived 6/15 and left 6/20.
Upon our arrival in Uvita we met Neil and he showed us the way to the house. At the front gates of the property you are greeted with a amazing entrance that a 4x4 is a must have. You drive up the hill and there is the diamond(house) in the forest. A breath taking home that is all yours. You meet the staff that is very nice and helpful with whatever is needed. Neil shows you around and informs you of everything you need to know for the entire stay. Neil has a binder for you with tons of info that assists you on your trip.
The house is massive, beautiful, clean, breathtaking. The pool is huge and is cleaned daily by staff. Kitchen had everything we needed.
The house is so close to stores, gas station, beaches, and various tour companies.
We only had a few issues during our stay. But Neil and staff assisted, fixed, and helped with all of them the best they could. One was the rolling blackouts which are normal in the rainforest(there are flashlights in every room to assist). Second was the water pressure during certain times of the day and night which is also normal in the rain forest and the elevation you are at. Last was the inside refrigerator that had some cooling issues during certain times of the day. They had another full size fridge outside in a storage area that is also yours that works like a champ. Neil and staff were fixing/repairing/replacing the inside fridge ASAP they said, which ever was needed.

Our overall stay at the house was the best we could have asked for. Very safe, secure. Never had to worry about any of my possessions. The security, cleaning, maintenance staff are honest as can be in my opinion. Everyone on the trip would highly recommend this house if you are looking for a 5 star operation in this region.

Thanks again Neil for everything and the amazing staff you have running the house day in and day out.

Book with confidence and enjoy your stay.

LIBELULA

  • 5 out of 5
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!!

FANTASTIC SERVICE, BEAUTIFUL VIEWS & PHENOMENAL VALUE

Fantastic service, beautiful views & phenomenal value
  • 5 out of 5
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.

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.
