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.

A dream come True

  • 5 of 5

As hesitant as I was to believe that this home would be as beautiful as shown in the pics, all my doubts were ended as we drove up the hill to the home. The groundskeeper DANNY & his son are the most humble respectful people ever. I still keep daydreaming about our time at this Beautiful home and honestly can't wait to visit Again!

Out of this world

  • 5 of 5

This was our return trip to Casa las Nubes after thoroughly enjoying this property and stay last winter. Daryl and Michael's home is truly "out of this world". In my wildest dreams I could not imagine a place this beautiful and relaxing. Danny and Daniel seemed genuinely excited to see us again. Little Danny literally jumped into our arms and gave us all big hugs. He is so adorable and friendly. And we were pleasantly surprised by a home cooked meal by this wonderful family. This trip we toured Diria coffee plant in Hojancha. Not easy to find, but well worth the struggle. (take it from us if you are driving, don't try the "short cut" from Camital, go around through Nicoya). We also made return trips to Samura Beach, Carrillo Beach and El Colibra steak house. And made a day trip to Poas Volcano National Park, north of San Jose. Also worth the 4 hour drive to get a glimpse of the crater lake in the volcano through the mist. Guys, if you'll have us we WILL be back. We love, love, love your home and pool! Sharon, Cindy and Beth

It is a high end fabulous retreat in spectacular nature!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a space that takes your breath away every day with the sheer beauty and majesty of nature, this is your spot. Watch the hawks soar in the sky, or butterflies dance around the pool or big blue birds hang out in the tree outside your bedroom. Chill in the amazing infinity pool that gives you a stunning view of the Costa Rican landscape. Take a shower outside every morning and hear exotic bird calls. Or go find a beach close by and come back to four star luxury with cozy sheets and comfy towels. The caregiver has a smile that puts you at ease early and the entire place is user friendly. It is a keeper. I will be back.

A short stay in the clouds...paradise found

  • 5 of 5

In Nov 2014 we visited this lovely, well appointed guest home "in the clouds." From start to finish, it was a ethereal, relaxing visit . The caretaker Danny, a gentle soul, was a pleasure to deal with & upon arrival delivered us fresh fruit and papas fritas (of which our 9 and 11 yr old promptly devoured.) The expansive pool house was the main base camp for our stay. The kids mastered snorkling while on this trip in the stunning L shaped infinity pool. We loved the natural morning green parrot alarm clocks :) , We enjoyed our tour of the many fruit trees on the property and found the setting to be intoxicating to the senses. This place embodies the biodiversity that is so rich in the region of the world. Daryl and Michael were responsive, flexible and a pleasure to interact with. The guest house is extremely comfortable with all modern appliances & everything you need for cooking. We loved the outdoor showers, cattle grazing mountain vistas, beds, and the privacy. We liked having AC!! Samara is a short drive away as are several sodas(family run restaurant serving local cuisine) and Supers (for groceries.) The location is great if you want to get out and about and have an authentic Tico experience. Lastly, the hosts went above and beyond to send me a beloved sun dress I had accidentally left behind. Thanks so much for sharing this gem with others. We definitely would like to make a return visit!! Hopefully in the next year!!

Absolutely Breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Las Nubes was exquisite, and we loved every last minute of our stay. The beautiful house, architecture, grounds, pool, and amenities are just as pictured, with every last detail carefully planned and perfectly executed. Nothing can quite describe the absolute peace and relaxation we felt while floating in the pool or reading by its side, surrounded by the natural beauty of the picturesque countryside. We spent a few mornings at beautiful nearby beaches such as Playa Carrillo, Playa Guiones, and Playa Pelada, and each afternoon we rushed "home" to enjoy the wonder and tranquility of Casa Las Nubes. We bought groceries at the supermarket in Nicoya and made dinner each night of our stay. We felt so lucky to have the privilege of spending six wonderful days at Casa Las Nubes.

As previous reviews mentioned, Danny takes immaculate care of the property, and is a wonderful caretaker. He allowed us privacy but also made us feel welcome and at home. I enjoyed chatting with him in Spanish about his family, the property, and Costa Rica in general. His son, Danielito, was adorable and took great pride in greeting us each time we returned after our excursions.

Our stay at Casa Las Nubes was one of our best vacations to date. Daryl and Michael, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We are already dreaming of returning!
