This house is wonderful. Where do I begin? Elena and Elky are gracious and accommodating. They were both very kind and helpful. The VIEW is stunning. The beach which is accessed by a trail (kind of steep but manageable) is a paradise in itself. The house is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. The town (Quepos) is a short taxi away and is a lot of fun with great restaurants and shops. Our time here was very special. We came face-to-face with squirrel monkeys in the backyard and other wildlife. It was amazing. Everyone here was so nice. We met some neighbors and a couple of people working in the yard and had fun practicing our Spanish. Meeting some of the locals enriched our experience. We would stay here again no question. Much love to the people of Costa Rica! We miss you!
Elena is incredible! She called me in CA prior to our arrival to answer any questions we may have. The home is wonderful! Monkeys greeting you in the morning. I had an unfortunate accident and needed sutures. Elena guided us where to seek out care and actually tried to meet me at the Red Cross to help me out! So wonderfully concerned! Highly recommend this home:)
Elena is a sophisticated, gracious host and we were so fortunate to stay in her lovely home tucked away in the Quepos hills!
Casa Libertad is a great place to stay, Helena the hostess was very heplful and kind
I just had the pleasure of staying at Casa Libertad in early September 2013. This house is awesome. The views are absolutely amazing. Some of the best sunsets I have ever seen. To be honest I was very skeptical of the so called "rustic road". I thought it would just be a dirt road out to the house. But when we first arrived at the house it was a little alarming. I thought we would never want to leave the house and be stuck there for a few days (which would have been fine). But we got very accustomed to driving the roads. Not a deal breaker the house and views make up for it. Elena and Elky are both very helpful and friendly, awesome hosts to have. Anything you needed or wanted they were there to help. Elena even helped book at excursion for us. We were lucky enough that the monkeys came and visited almost every morning. One of the best experiences of our trip for sure. There are a few house dogs that are very well trained. Also a pet raccoon that is also blind. I don't know what my wife was more excited to see, the monkeys or the raccoon. Haha. We also took the trail down to the local beach. We had the beach all to ourselves which was perfect. There is a waterfall that leads to the ocean. The beach there is pretty rocky so its not a beach to go and lay out at. The trail down to the beach is pretty steep but its a fun lil journey. My parents made it up and back and my dad is in his 60's. Overall an awesome stay in a beautiful modern home in the jungle. Very close to town and not that far from Manuel Antonio. I would highly recommend this home. Thanks again Elena and Elky.
Wonderful house, very comfortable and clean. Great views and privacy. Loved Elena's four dogs (gentlest and cutest dogs you can meet) and pet raccoon (never met such a friendly one before. Please note that if you do not want to see the animals, they will not be there. The road up is bit rustic but very doable and not too long.
The house is fully stoked (umbrellas, beach towel, large TV, AC, etc.
We loved it and appreciated coming back to it after a day of exploring the area. It was really nice to have two very spacious and clean bedrooms and a large living room and kitchen to boot. Very modern in furnishings and comfort. Also appreciated all the tips that Elena and Elky gave us. Would definitely recommend the house if you want some more room and do not mind driving to town and Manuel Antonio (10 minutes by car. Also, the beach cove down the trail was great - a short ten minute walk down the trail.
Elana was a great host, friendly and helpful, and also brought us a delicious tapas snack! The house was lovely, and have an amazing view.
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Libertad - what a hidden gem this property is! The house is situated a short distance outside of the town of Quepos. The final mile or so of the road is a bit rough, and I would recommend a 4-wheel drive vehicle, although its honestly not as bad as I thought it might be. You could walk into town, but it would be a bit of a hike, for us having a rental car provided the best freedom to drive down to Manuel Antonio, or into Quepos, or whatever the days activities were. The house itself has been beautifully restored, and is very spacious. The kitchen in particular is great, and we enjoyed cooking several meals while watching the ocean from the panoramic windows. Bedrooms and bathroom were very comfortable, laundry facilities were a plus. We enjoyed having the dogs around, they were very friendly, and would deter any strangers, although the neighborhood is very safe. Elena is the consummate host, there when we needed her or had a question, but giving us our privacy as well. She helped us feed the squirrel monkeys that would come by each morning, prepared a mango dish for us from fruit picked in the backyard, and helped us find our way down the (rather treacherous) path down to the nearby beach. The beach is a rocky beach, and when the surf is heavy (as it was for us), there's not much to do there. Its nice to have so close by, but if you're looking for a more traditional experience, the beaches at Manuel Antonio are only about 15 minutes away by car. Overall, I would highly recommend this place, it is a very peaceful and relaxing location to spend your vacation!
We had a fantastic stay at Casa Libertad. Elena was a wonderful host, so kind and laid back and extremely helpful in orienting us to the area.
The accommodations at the house are fantastic! The beds were very comfortable and it was so remarkably clean, spotless really when we first checked in. The kitchen was the best part, and allowed is to cook a delicious meal. The air conditioning also provided a much needed relief from the humidity.
A trip to the private beach was well worth the extremely steep hike. Though slightly rocky, the water was fantastic and almost no waves in the little cove, perfect for swimming and relaxing.
The animals were the real highlight, not only were we greeted by four of he friendliest dogs in the world, but we awoke one morning to so many monkeys hopping through the trees, a veritable monkey highway.
Overall everything about Casa Libertad surpassed all our expectations and left us with a wonderful memories of comfort and beauty.
On a side note, we were very relieved that we were driving an SUV , as the final road up the hill reminded us all of the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland
We had a lovely stay at Casa de Libertad. There's a great yard in front with a view of the ocean, and Elena took us down the scramble to the tiny beach, which is completely private. Elena was very friendly and attentive and my kids adored her well-behaved dogs. It was also one of the cleanest places I've ever been and quite roomy. All amenities great, nice bathroom and kitchen, etc.
Bear in mind that if you are going off the main road in Costa Rica GPS and 4 wheel drive are essential and the road up to the house is very steep and twisty. Elena indicated this in her guide but I didn't read it very well, so it was just lucky that the car rental agent gave us the same advice!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
