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.

It really is this Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
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.

All we can say is WOW!!! 5 stars are too few!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5
This home is outstanding! All of the other reviews cover everything I wanted to say. The attention to detail is amazing. The decor,furnishings,linens,landscaping,top end appliances are of superior quality and makes you feel you are in a luxury hotel with a homey feel. Waiting for us was a basket of fresh fruit, fresh eggs, and fabulous cheese. We felt very welcomed which adds to the relaxing ambiance. The gate is opened and closed by Danny's adorable little boy, which can't help but make you smile! A true highlight of our trip to Costa Rica. Thank you Michael and Daryl for sharing your beautiful home with us.

THE place to stay in Costa Rica.

  • 5 of 5
Casa Las Nubes is THE place to stay on the Nicoya peninsula in Costa Rica. The house itself is amazing and blends architecture and natural surroundings beautifully. The vantage point from the pool is reminiscent of prehistoric times. There are no tall buildings in sight. There is no pollution. It is just green valleys, giant birds, and as the name states, blue skies and endless clouds.

The housekeeper Danny, and his son, were so friendly and helpful. They always greeted us at the front gate and with a little help from Google Translate, were able to provide us with recommendations and directions.

The location of the house is fantastic. You're 20-25 minutes away from Samara, which is an awesome laid back beach/surfer town. My wife and I drove there almost every day for 10 days straight. You're about 10 minutes from Nicoya. And the drive to and from the airport is pretty much a straight shot.

If you have any questions, Daryl and Michael were always available by phone or email before and during your trip. Super helpful, especially since it was our first trip to Costa Rica.

Overall, Casa Las Nubes is the way to go. Its priced extremely well for the value that you get, and we have been back in Brooklyn for almost two months and still can't stop thinking/talking/dreaming about it.

Cheers,
Ryan & Crystall

Owner's Response: Ryan & Crystal,

Thank you so very much for the amazing review. The wonderful things you wrote will certainly make others aware of your enjoyable experiences in our home. We can't even begin to describe some of the challenges we faced during construction. Our goal was to create something beautiful, something more luxurious than the places we had seen and stayed in, so to know you were pleased with the end results is so gratifying.

We love our caretaker, Danny and his wife and little boy. He is a real treasure, and takes so much pride in taking care of the property for us. He will be so grateful when I tell him you mentioned him and Danielito.

Best wishes to you for a wonderful year.
Michael & Daryl

this home could be mistaken for a 5 star resort

  • 5 of 5
Tucked away in the mountains of Caimital, is a home that could easily be mistaken for a 5 star resort. In the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, hotels right near the beach are costly and often lackluster. Rent a car and have your own private oasis at Casa Las Nubes. The house is only a 30 minute drive down a paved road (a rarity in Costa Rica) to the beautiful Playa Carrillo, and just 20 minutes to Samara. Although once you arrive at the house, you'll likely forget about the beach and just want to kick it poolside!

Daryl was quick to answer all of my questions prior to and during our trip, and the house had everything we needed.

I look forward to returning to their slice of paradise someday!!!

6..7...8 stars !!!! AMAZING !!!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have to first say it was not an easy thing to write a review on Casa Las Nubes since all previous guest had already shared everything that we wanted to share about this master piece of architecture or if you prefer this breathtaking eden of peace and beauty. My partner and I are both mid 30's French Canadian from Montréal. We had one full week to enjoy and live at Casa Las Nubes at the beginning of our 3 weeks trip in Costa Rica.

I will start by saying that I’m known among my friends and family to be very difficult to impress and satisfy in terms of “accommodations". In other words very picky…;) The minute we contacted the owners with our initial questions we had regarding their property we felt something different. They did not want to simply rent their house. We felt they wanted to share the experience of their house with us. This house is so special it's an experience to live. It became a big highlight of our trip.

When we first arrived to the property, and walked up the stairs that leads to the first breathtaking point of view of this house, I told myself and my partner that this would be a week of a lifetime. The minute we walked thru that entrance we felt like nothing else mattered… It was just to good to be true… Every morning we would pinch ourselves sitting around the infinite pool and just starring at the amazing views… Listening to the wildlife surrounding and living in front of us. It was so relaxing, so rejuvenating, we were able to really disconnect from our busy stressful work lives and take a moment for ourselves… The sunset … floating in the pool with a drink and some clouds sitting in the mountains in front of us was just one of the best memory we will keep. Even if some days we would go out to visit the area, beaches & Park, we would come back early just to make sure we would be able to enjoy the end of the day at the pool. Dany the house caretaker was very nice and welcoming! We even downloaded an app to be able to speak and translate live with him ;)) We asked him few things and when he did not knew he would get back to us later. We felt like friends visiting. His son made us smile and welcome us every time we pass by the gate at the entrance of the land.

We will be back for sure !! We wish all future guest to enjoy as much as we did. On this day of Canadian Thanksgiving, Darryl & Michael, we will never thank you enough for letting us share this dream of yours.
Merci encore mille fois et à très bientôt ;)
