The best vacation house in Uvita!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at la lebalula! The owner of the home Nicolas is fabulous and goes above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect! We are a family of 7 and had more than enough space to all feel like Kings and queens in our own quarters. The house could not be more beautiful! Nearly the entire back side of the house facing the pool and ocean is all glass which gives you a great ocean view on a clear day from almost everywhere in the house! You can’t really see that from the pictures but I was so pleased to find out it had such great ocean views and look out at the ocean while taking a shower in the master bath! From the overlook sunning deck there is even a great view of cano island. The pool is so large all 7 of us fit in it no problem and had plenty of pool floats to play on! We even had our scuba instructor give us our lessons right out of the pool for our convenience! I have to brag on Nicolas and the house caretakers Lecho and Darling. The day we arrived was my daughter 18th birthday and they had a whole party of balloons, piñata, sangria and mojito at my request and the best chocolate cake and candles, all of this out at the tiki bar by the pool! It was the best party she ever had! We had requested that night for Darling to make dinner for us and breakfast the next morning since we had just arrived from long travels and needed some time to get settled. She made the best guacamole and ceviche, I highly recommend her services. Lecho provided us with wonderful fresh coconuts to drink. Lecho and Darling did a spectacular job coming in every other day to keep the house clean. We spoke very little Spanish and Lecho spoke very little English but we managed to understand things well enough. The house has everything you need and is as nice as staying in a resort. There is a nice super market and tons of great restaraunts and soda shops around. Our favorite was Osa Thyme up the road by Uvita waterfall and the smoothies at Uvita waterfall are the best! We did jungle atv tour ( fabulous and great way to experience the best of what Uvita has to offer), horse back riding to nuayaka waterfalls( also fabulous and would only go on horses as it comes with breakfast and delicious authentic lunch and the horses are so much fun) and also scuba/snorkeling to cano island ( if I had to skip something it would be this because the visibility is not as good as it is in Cancun Mexico). Uvita is a hidden gem and this house is the best one in Uvita!

Beautiful villa with magnificent views and surrounding property

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to pick that villa as our vacation home for nine days at the end of April. The weather was perfect. The villa was extremely clean, spacious fully equipped, organized and secure. Nicolas was friendly and responsive. There was quite long trip from San Jose airport and he came to meet us at the nearest gas station to take to the villa where we met Lecho and Darling. The couple leaves in the house right next to the main villa and take care of the property. Every morning they were cleaning the pool, grille and the territory. There are beach chairs, umbrellas and surfing boards if you decide to go to the beach. The villa is surrounded by variety of jungle trees. The Howler monkeys came close enough to see them on the nearest trees. We have seen parrots, toucans and other birds. The villas location is perfect for sightseeing and we took a few tours to Corcovado National Park, jungles and waterfalls mixing up leisure with explorations. You won’t find more fantastic place to stay. Thanks again, Nicolas, Lecho and Darling!

Nicolas is one of the most pleasant people we have ever met. He greeted us when we arrived and came back to see us off at the end of our stay. I almost wish he could have spent the week with us. Very friendly.

Lecho and Darling, the caretakers that have a house on-site, were fantastic. They cleaned every day and made sure we had everything we needed, but they were not intrusive at all.

The house was perfect for our party of 9 (4 adults and 5 kids 11-17). Four beautiful bedrooms with a/c and private baths, beautiful kitchen, and WONDERFUL outdoor space with a HUGE swimming pool. The gated property (very secure) is at the top of big, steep hill. 4-wheel drive is a must. From the property, we saw capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, toucans and in the distance, the Pacific Ocean. We really felt like we were in the jungle. No other homes are visible from the property. Very private.

The location is great. You're probably not going to walk anywhere from the house, but it's a short drive to shopping, restaurants, adventure guides, and beaches. I truly hope we can come back some day, but this may have been a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us. It's a long way from Bar Harbor, Maine.

Amazing house and location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with 3 other couple enjoyed a weeks stay at La Libelula. We are close friends that enjoy traveling together and this house was one of our best. Nicolas met us when we arrived with a warm welcome and then Licho and Darling took great care of us when anything was needed. Costa Rica showed us its beauty and friendliness in all that we did. The pool was a highlight for us to start or end our day or simply to take a break from touring and enjoy all day long. The view to the ocean is stunning....and the many conversation spots all over the property made it easy to gather at any time for good conversation. Thank you, Nicolas for so warmly welcoming us and being available for any help we needed as we planned our vacation! We would love to return!

Your own private resort!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were privileged to rent Nicolas' Villa for the holidays this year! I can't find the right words to describe how amazing this place is. The setting looks very good on the pictures but it's nothing like being there in person. The house is surrounded by amazing wildlife (monkeys, toucans and other superb birds) and makes you feel as if you were part it. The absolute best point is that even though you are right in the middle of the jungle, there are no mosquitos nor flies. We had breakfast lunch and dinner outside every single day, rain or shine! We fell in love with Licho and Darling (the couple that maintains the property in impeccable condition) and had them cook delicious meals for us for only 25$ + cost of food. We enjoyed walking to the grocery store daily which is about a 15 minute walk down the mountain and where you will find everything you need. Very nice beaches and waterfalls are also a few minutes away by car and are worth the trips. Overall, this house is a strong 10/10! I have nothing else to add except that I will definitely be going back very soon :)

Thank you Nicolas, Licho and Darling for making this trip one we will never forget!
