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.

Staying in Costa Rica? Look no further!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Las Nubes is an epic vacation destination. The fact that Daryl and Michael have successfully built such an astonishing house in Costa Rica is impressive, but that they are willing to share it with the HomeAway community is even more so. The entire experience from first contact with the owners to the last day of our stay was remarkable. Danny and David (the property's caretakers) answered any questions we had and gave advice on what to do and see. Danny works incredibly hard to make sure the grounds around the house are well cared for. He even came to get us when the monkeys were lounging in the trees on the property (he knew I was searching for them).

The house itself is an architectural gem surrounded by the natural beauty of unspoiled tropical forest. If you appreciate clean architecture, I think you'll be hard pressed to find a more spectacular home in Costa Rica. Since the guesthouse is just a few steps down from the pool, it does not feel isolated or split off from the rest of the home. The outdoor showers are brilliant, and the guesthouse comes fully equipped with a blender for making some fresh fruit cocktails! Daryl and Michael only rent out the guesthouse when no one is staying in the main home, so it truly feels like you have rented the entire campus.

The pool is massive and forms a large "L" shape right at the corner of the hill, providing massive views. There is even a terraced section of the pool that runs the length of the home's main living room, and a conveniently located outdoor shower and bathroom. This area of the home is so surreal that you may not want to leave the property at all. However, if you do decide to explore, here are some of our favorite things to visit:

Best Beach - Carillo (~35-40 minutes away, beautiful and very few visitors)
Best Restaurant - El Colibri (located in Carillo, Argentinian grill)
Best Soda - La Cuchara (short walk from the house, delicious Costa Rican food)
Best Grocery Store - the supermarket in Nicoya (short drive away and fully stocked).

Overall, we fell in love with Costa Rica, but admittedly we love Casa Las Nubes even more. We can't wait to come back!

-Steven and Katie

P.S. We drove from San Jose, which was straightforward and easy, but I highly recommend flying to Liberia to save yourself a few hours of driving.

All we can say is INCREDIBLE!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
I'm not really sure where to start. The place is breathtaking. The rooms are immaculate, the outdoor showers to die for, the pool and the view will make you never want to go home.

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon and could not have been happier or more pleased. We rented a car for the week and went all over the peninsula and it was great! The caretaker of the property was exceptional. He kept the place spotless for us, even down to making sure the leaves were out of the pool each day! Talk about service! He was also a great guide on what to try and what/where to avoid. He was super friendly and was really a great asset to the home. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, and everything we could have needed. They even had some of the spices we used for breakfast each morning. Oh, and their coffee!!!! It is called 1820 and is really incredible. They gave us some and that really helped start our days off right. I would highly recommend this place for your visit.

Beautiful and peaceful home and setting

  • 5 of 5
For a first trip to Costa Rica we couldn't have found a better place to stay to leave us with a great impression of the country. The guest house is beautiful, well appointed and offers a gorgeous view over the hills around Nicoya. Both the owners and the onsite manager were extremely helpful in providing suggestions on attractions, restaurants and helped us coordinate a full schedule of activities. We planned well with a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get out on the road and explore areas within several hours driving distance of the house. Thanks for a wonderful getaway.

Peaceful stay in an excellent home!!

  • 5 of 5
We had excellent communication from the owner of the guest home before arrival. When we arrived we were greeted with the onsite caretaker who was very helpful when we needed him and not overbearing one bit. My husband and I had a lovely 2 night stay in this beautiful guest house in Caimital with dear friends. The pool at Casa las Nubes is spectacular and we enjoyed afternoons at the infinity pool with an incredible view taboot! I am very grateful for our stay at this home and would highly recommend to others. I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat when returning to this area in Costa Rica!!

Double Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
Hey everyone, my husband and I were recently married in September of 2013 and our best friends were also married in July of 2013, so we thought it would be fun to honeymoon together. We set our minds on Costa Rica. The experience right from the first initial contact with Daryl (owner) to when we checked out was unbelievable for us. We flew into Liberia around 9:30 pm, got our rental vehicle and drove the hour to the house. We were nervous about making the trek during the night, but Daryl gives you very detailed instructions and finding the house was easy. David and his wife Melissa are the caretakers and as we pulled up (around 11:00 pm) David was there with a big smile to greet us and show us around the guest house. The house...is awesome! There were two master bedrooms separated by a shared living area/kitchen space. Each bedroom had amazing views with their own balconies. The showers were open and beautiful. The pool is amazing, we woke up most mornings and just hung out by the pool. David helped us out a lot--I have a Canon 7d and love to take pictures, I left my battery charger for it at home and both David and Melissa did everything they could to help me out and try to find one for me. The best place we ate at was an Argentenian steak restaurant in the town of Carillo (about a half hour drive south from the house). It was called El Colibri--recommended to us by David. Probably the best steak I've ever had and this is coming from a gal who is involved in the cattle industry in ND. Also, if you go there, be sure to order the Chorizo. So good. The town of Samara was not "touristy" and the locals were super friendly. Our fellas loved to surf there while us gals sat on the beach and drank pineapple mojitos. Honestly, book this house. You will not be disappointed.

Turn off the main road through lovely gates, up a steep hill and perfectly spectacular views explode into sight. Every direction you look is beautiful--in the sun, the clouds, the rain, the fog---always. Walk past beautiful plants and flowers through double doors into the guest house living room. On either side are bedrooms with TVs , great beds, outdoor showers with flowering plants and balconies. There are built-in closets and drawers lining one whole wall in each bedroom. The kitchen is fully equipped. The infinity pool is the most fantastic I have ever seen. It is beautiful, a perfect temperature and private just for you. We LOVED it!!!!
