Located in the southern portion of the Guanacaste province, a few minutes outside the village of Caimital and on the road to the seaside village of Samara, our home commands a breathtaking view of the valley below. Set on 5 and 1/2 acres of private property, you may enjoy the beauty and tranquility of nature, and have the convenience of nearby attractions and world class surfing. This stunning location allows for complete privacy in a lush tropical environment surrounded by natural beauty.

The Main house has a large infinity pool ranging in depth from 3 feet to 7 feet. Cushioned lounge chairs are provided poolside for your comfort, and there is a shallow ledge lying beneath an inch of water designed to allow you to enjoy the sun and remain cool.

The Guest House, which is being offered for rent, is a separate residence with private entrance consisting of a central kitchen and living area flanked by two comfortably furnished modern bedrooms. Each bedroom has Queen mattresses, air conditioning, ceiling fans, a private terrace and modern bathroom featuring open air showers.

About the Owner

We also have a beautiful home on the lakefront in Chicago, so we are able to enjoy the best of both worlds. We can enjoy all the pleasures of urban life and then escape to the beauty and tranquility of a natural paradise at our home in Costa Rica.

Our stay at Casa Las Nubes at the end of March was exceptional and will, no doubt, always be a favourite destination. With so many other places to travel to, we thought this might be our last time visiting Costa Rica but we’ve reconsidered as being able to stay here again would be worth the trip! The owners had such a beautiful vision when they built this haven at the top of the hill and we were so thankful for their generosity in sharing it with travellers from around the world. We flew into Liberia and it was very easy to get to by following the detailed instructions Daryl sent.
As soon as we arrived, we were amazed to think that we were going to have this entire place all to ourselves. The groundskeeper, Danny, obviously takes great pride in this beautiful home and having him at the bottom of the hill gave us a great sense of security. Honestly, we could have stayed there all day every day but we still managed to get to the beach on a daily basis as it was a very short trip to Samara and our favourite beach, Playa Carillo.
The guesthouse was just perfect for our family of four and it is evident the owners want their guests to be comfortable. Everything was very clean and comfortable and all the towels, linens, dishes, utensils, etc . . . were top of the line. There were so many thoughtful touches and we continually marvelled at how lucky we were to have found such a great place to stay.
Daryl and Michael are living the dream and it says a lot about their character that they are willing to share it with others. Thank you so much for letting us be a part of that experience!

Our Favorite Spot in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
I don't really know what to say besides what has been said already. This place is amazing! Traveled around Guanacaste/Nicoya Peninsula for 10 days and this was BY FAR OUR FAVORITE SPOT!

25 minutes to Samara. 30 minutes to PLAYA CARILLO (OUR FAVORITE BEACH)

Danny and his son (the caretakers) are available to help you out with anything at the drop of a hat. We bought some fresh meat on the drive in to have a BBQ for dinner when we arrived. By the time we got done preparing the kebabs, Danny had the "parilla" hot and ready, and we enjoyed one of the most beautiful sunsets as we cooked dinner that night.

Michael and Daryl are always an email away with any questions.

We will return in the future!

After a very long day of flying and 3.5 hours driving from SJO, we were thrilled to find Casa Las Nubes to be exactly as described on this website by previous guests and the pictures.
Rather understated by other reviews, the living room by the pool was spectacular and provided great views toward Caimital. We were able to get enough groceries at the Super Compro in Nicoya that we could make good use of the kitchen when not going out. Every morning and evening we could hear the howler monkeys down in the valleys on all sides. Many different birds singing throughout the day, also.
The pool was great to escape the dry season heat. And it was hot every day, like upper 90's and pretty humid.
Our hosts and Danny (and Daniel) the caretaker were great to work with. We highly recommend Casa Las Nubes.

Thats exactly how you will feel when you enter this amazing beautiful property. We have stayed at many High end resorts and have never stayed at a private villa until now. This was the most amazing,peaceful,enjoyable vacation we have had. You cannot describe this luxurious property other than breathtaking.The owners are utterly fantastic to deal with, the caretaker Danny and his family are fabulous. We travelled throughout Costa Rica always coming back to the Paradise in the clouds. The people are great, the food is fantastic, there is drinkable water everywhere in the country and your close to the beachs,Nicoya and shopping. 10 days was not enough we were sad to leave here an go back to Canada. The living space is amazing an you won't find a pool like this one with the views, an the monkeys so close by on the property. Driving back an forth was no trouble, actually it was fun not being in congestion like on our highways. When you come through the small village of Caimital an see this breathtaking view of The Home in The Clouds you become star struck, wait till you arrive an enter and walk up the stairs it's truly Amazing,beautiful, and the views unbelievable. We were honoured that Daryl and Michael allowed us into there beautiful amazing Villa. You will not want to leave this I guarantee.

Architecturally stunning.
Absolutely beautiful countryside. Real and non-touristy neighbourhood. We never felt unsafe.
Easy access to the ocean and beaches on a pretty paved highway.
Many many thanks to Daryl and Michael who gave warm support and help from afar. And also to Danny at the bottom of the hill for his wonderful attentiveness. We have stayed at many houses across the world and this may be the best.

The pictures on line do not even begin to show the magnificence of this property. Casa Las Nubes is the most amazing rental we have ever had throughout Central America and the Caribbean. This was the "girls" week away and this guest house was the perfect retreat. Sun, the beautiful infinite pool, the perfectly appointed accommodations, the absolute privacy. We mixed our time between lazy pool days and travel to Lake Arenal, Rincon Volcano and several beautiful beaches. The caretaker Danny was a gem and very helpful to us during our stay. The only thing wrong with it was it ended much too soon. We will return and we will extend our stay. Thanks to Daryl and Michael for thinking of ever little detail to make this the PERFECT vacation!
