Loved this property!
This house is loved !!
The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots, pans, glasses, spices, blender, coffee maker etc. There is even a wine cooler if you want to keep your wine at the perfect temperature.
It was nice having Darlene and Leecho living across the property. They take very good care of the house and us. Everyday they straightened up the house and gave us fresh towels. When my daughter accidentally pulled a screen door off, Leecho was there to put it back on. Darlene made us 2 amazing dinners. We especially loved her guacamole, arroz con pollo and ceviche.
This house feels like it is far away but it is only a 5 minute drive to the grocery store. The grocery store is well stocked and we found everything we needed. We enjoyed having fresh french bread, croissants, and homemade ravioli from the Baker Bean.
Neal was great at corresponding with us prior to our arrival. He provided us with a lot of helpful information. He was out of town when we arrived but Steven was equally as helpful at getting us settled in. He set up surf lessons for us and even arranged an in-house massage.
It was a perfect vacation. We look forward to returning to La Libelula.
Luxury vacation home
Darlene is an excellent cook, her arroz con pollo is memorable. Both Licho and Darlene took great care of us.
It's a one of the best properties we have rented through VRBO.
The caretakers, Licho and Darlene, live in a separate home adjacent to the property and are top-notch. They kept the property tidy and politely ensure you have everything you need while at the same time respecting your privacy. It was a comfort knowing they were there.
Our favorite activity was white water rafting - ask for Andy! We also highly recommend Darlene's cooking and the restaurant Por Que No - both offer delicious food with a view!
Bottom line: not a negative thing to say about this property. We have rented several homes on VRBO and have stayed in many fantastic resorts around the globe, and La Libelula tops our list of favorites.
Great home, amazing views, amazing service!
The home is at the top of a steep dirt road down to town, and the owner recommends rental vehicle but we went without for the 8 days and it worked out great. Licho can call you a taxi if you need to get around, or some of the local tours will send someone to pick you up at no charge. I would definitely not recommend driving there from the airport at night, definitely get a ride! We used Solid Rental Cars which is a great company and were on the ball and very accommodating with the changes in pick up times because of our flight delays. Transfer cost was $250/bus load. Unfortunately for us, we had to do 3 different pick ups because of the flight changes, so our cost jumped to $750 (3 different transfers), but all in all, they knew where they were going which was a bonus, they do transfers to this location all the time so arriving at night was not a problem.
We also had Darlene cook us dinner 2 of the nights...all I can say is amazing!! The food was spectacular and much better than anything you can get in a restaurant. All of the other nights we cooked for ourselves and the kitchen has everything you need. We also used the BBQ outside and all went well.
We were there during Cicada season and the noise they make is incredible! They make a ton of noise during the day, starting at about 7:15am and are constant until 6:30pm when the sun goes down. The first day hanging out at the pool we could hardly hear each other talk, but by the last day we were used to the noise. They are huge bugs but are more annoying than dangerous as they don't bite.
We saw Tucans, Macaw birds, lots of local smaller birds. We heard the howler monkeys at night all around the home but didn't see any during our stay at the house (we did see some during a tour).
Each of the rooms is very well appointed with ensuites, comfortable beds, great lanais for morning coffee. With about 10 various sitting areas, there are many spots to relax both in and out of the sun.
I would definitely recommend this place for a family looking for a getaway
Paradise in Uvita
I strongly recommend La Libelula for anyone wanting to experience la Pura Vida in Uvita!

Activity and Interests
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.
