The concept of the La Libelula property is a luxurious comfortable relaxing retreat for a stress free vacation with everything that you could want without putting a step outside the villa. The property is situated on it’s own pinnacle hillside at the elevation of 285 feet above sea level that enjoys the panoramic views along the coast which is located in the lush tropical coastal forest full of wildlife and birds that surround the property with regular visits from Monkeys, Toucans and Sloths, etc.
Treat yourself to a STRESS FREE VACATION, each day the bedrooms will be cleaned & beds made, all this is included. For additional the fee of just $25 for the meal for 10 people the housekeeper will cook lunch or dinner, all you do is buy the food and the housekeeper will prepare a delicious local meal for you to eat in the comfort of the Villa.
Even though the pictures are nice, they do not do this place justice. It is amazing! Everything from the house to the grounds to the pool was perfect, and we could not have asked for a better vacation. Our family of four (2 adults, a 5 year-old and a 3 year-old) stayed at the house for a week and saw tons of wildlife every day (e.g. toucans, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, poison arrow frogs, toads, butterflies, tons of cool insects) just while enjoying the pool and yard. Of course there's even more to be seen if you venture out and enjoy the surrounding areas of Dominical, Manuel Antonio, Bahia Ballena, Corcovado, etc. The house is extremely clean and upscale, and the caretakers Licho and Darlene (and their son) are wonderful. We can't recommend this place enough, and can't wait to come back with friends to share this treasure with them.
Had a fantastic stay at this villa, and would recommend this property to anyone. The building and grounds were really amazing, and we were excited to see the variety of wildlife on the property (including monkeys and toucans!). We have a 2 year old and the pools were absolutely perfect for him.
We spent 6 nights at La Libelula in March 2015. There were 8 of us ( 4 adults/4 kids). We loved this house. The house was spacious and each bedroom has its own bathroom. The outdoor living space was amazing. The pool was larger than the pools at the hotels we had recently stayed at in other parts of Costa Rica. We enjoyed playing with all the pool toys and the kids played volleyball in the pool for hours. We saw more toucans and howler monkeys while we were lounging by the pool than we saw when we spent the day at Corcovado. 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.
