"We visited Punta Dakota in January of 2015 with friends (there were 9 of us total). The property was beautiful and the weather was amazing! Online pictures of this property do not do it justice! The villa had all of the amenities that we could have possibly needed and the pool/bar area was breathtaking. It was so nice not to have to fight for a chair by the pool like you would have to at a hotel/resort! The staff at Punta Dakota would get a 5+ star rating if it would let me. We did hire Wilberth while we were there and he should really be charging more! He was amazing!! He did everything; he was our personal chef (the food was mouth watering), our bartender (made from scratch pina coladas to die for), and our local tour guide (we did an offsite excursion almost everyday that we were there). He knows everyone around the area of San Francisco and beyond so everyone was always very friendly. Great experience! We will definitely be repeat visitors of Punta Dakota!!"

"Our family of four (that included our teenage daughter and son) just returned from a fantastic week in Playa Guiones. We loved the area and Casa Libelula. The house was perfect for us! It was just a few minutes from the beach--either along a path through the beautiful jungle or along the road. (It's the closest you can get to the beach.) I thought we'd miss staying right on the beach, as we have on previous vacations, but the jungle setting and gorgeous gardens around Casa Libelula were just as spectacular as any sea view. The owner, Tom, takes meticulous care of the grounds. The flowers and trees are gorgeous. There were beautiful birds, lizards and butterflies. We were especially delighted by seeing a coatimundi, armadillo and troop of howler monkeys right on the property. There is also a cat and some dogs that belong to business owners that visited daily. (These 'vacation pets' were calm, quiet and friendly.) Our kids enjoyed being with them and experiencing all the wildlife. We loved having our very own pool. It was refreshing, private and in this beautiful setting. The home itself is well decorated and large. It has everything you need in terms of kitchen appliances/utensils, bedrooms, towels and safety features (bars on windows/doors and safe room). It is located near several restaurants which we feared would be loud, but there is a noise ordinance and businesses close at 10PM. We never had an issue with noise. And it was convenient to be able to eat out at places so close. There's also a mini market nearby that was handy since we did not rent a car. Tom connected us a chef who made two delicious breakfasts and three dinners for us. She was wonderful and we loved her food. We also enjoyed dining at Kaya Sol, Pacifico Azul and La Luna. We went fishing with Nosara Fishing and took surf lessons from Nosara Surf Academy. We spent a lot of time on the beach and loved that it was clean, had pretty shells and was not crowded with people. The added bonus was that Tom did a great job of making us feel welcome, answered all our questions and gave us may helpful recommendations and tips. We highly recommend staying at Casa Libelula and we will be back!"

"Just finished our second visit to Barefoot Villa. Once again, it was AWESOME! The facilities, house, the home cooked meals from a terrific local woman, the personal help of the owners, and of course the incredible country of Costa Rica and Nosara make it a terrific place to vacation. A very special place and we will be returning. Highly recommend renting ATV's/quads and the Ms Sky canopy tour. Both great fun!! Very reasonable too in my opinion!:)"

"Awesome home with easy access to the sand beach and beautiful sunsets. Safe and close to town however, you will want to drive, it is too far to walk. Pool is perfect size and bedrooms and bathrooms are huge. Beds are good. If you are looking for privacy, maybe not your place, neighbors are close and always outside doing something. Also lots of dogs, but we loved having them. Management was awesome and Randy the owner is a pleasure.
Will definitely return to this paradise and I highly recommend."
