Our stay in casa libélula has been really good. From the beginning , the communication with Beth was excellent, she replied always very fast and even sent us a map and details to make easier our arrival. Unfortunately, we could not meet her in person. Olman, Nico and Marcela were waiting for us and their welcome could not be better. They made banana bread for us, gave us fruits, chocolate and coffee from the region and plenty of good tips of activities, restaurants and so on. They were very friendly and their son Nicole was supercute! The flat itself is a small piece of art, so far it is by far the most stylish flat and coziest one we have been in Costa Rica. Beth has been taken care of the decoration till the smallest detail and you can easy notice... It is awesome. The place is also convinient, although we wish it would have more free garden to explore animals and so on. However, Marcela was showing us a sloth near by in the morning. This was also great! Olman is a naturalist and he had also time to chat and explain us things from the area or about animals or plants. We really appreciate his help and time. Besides, he offers guide tours and we think that they should be worth it, according to his personality and knowledge. Taking into account all of this, we strongly recommend casa libélula! We hope we can go back some day :-)

Está a 1,5 km del centro de Santa Elena y Monteverde, así que es recomendable disponer de vehículo propio, pero aún así es ideal para estar en un entorno tranquilo y con todas las comodidades. Una gran elección.

Olman, Marciela and Nicholas were great hosts and also the mail contact to Beth upfront went smoothly. We took a night tour with Olman and we also had the chance to wash our clothes for a little extra money. The house itself was great, one of the best airbnbs we had in Costa Rica. Enough space, very clean and the provided fruits, banana bread and juice very yummy. We even had Monteverde coffee in the morning. The location of the house is good for tours around Monteverde. We can recommend this place 100%.

Our experience at Casa Libelula was incredible. It was a peaceful getaway close to Santa Elena/Monteverde. Our hosts greeted us with banana bread and freshly squeezed juice. They let us do our own thing, but offered help if we needed it, and knocked on our door once only to point out a sloth in the tree behind the house! The house itself was beautiful and clean, and the porch was amazing with a beautiful jungle view and comfortable rocking chair and hammocks. The house also had a lot of convenient amenities such as fast wifi, coffee, and a kitchenette. This was by far our favorite Airbnb in Costa Rica, and we definitely recommend extending your stay there!!!

This was one of the best air b n b places I've stayed in!! Communication was excellent and the hosts were amazing. There was freshly baked banana bread and fruit for us when we arrived and they gave us a play mat and toys for our baby. The owner also showed us a sloth and a possum that were right next to the house- an amazing experience! The cabin itself was lovely, really clean and spacious. I would highly recommend!

We spent three wonderful days in Beth's lovely little hut. The place is beautiful and equipped with everything. We were warmly welcomed and provided with local guidance by Olman. Definitely a strong recommendation especially for the rainy season when you are happy to have a nice and comfortable place to stay when it is raining cats and dogs. Armin
