We are proud to announce that Casa Las Nubes has won the prestigious “America's Residential Property Award” for Best Property in Costa Rica!
We were also featured in Su Casa magazine.
Casa Las Nubes is a stunning new luxury villa. The casa is nestled in a Costa Rican jungle hillside in Tulemar Gardens of the Manuel Antonio National Park area. Designed by an award-winning architect, the sweeping curve design of the villa drinks in the lush jungle environment and expansive Pacific Ocean views, which can be enjoyed from private terraces on each of the three levels.
The large windows and open air design help to achieve a strong relationship between the natural surroundings and interior spaces. A pool feature extends throughout the main level, so you are literally 'walking on water' as you enter the home.
Casa Las Nubes enjoys all of the benefits of Tulemar, including our own beach, free shuttle and food and beverage service.
Casa Las Nubes has 4,500 luxurious square feet, including three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen has been well appointed with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, including a gas range. (Catering services or a private chef are available for an additional fee.)
Guests have ready access to the house manager, Diego, who serves as your personal assistant throughout your stay. He is able to set up your tours and activity arrangements. Maid and gardening services are performed daily.
The landscape architecture around Casa Las Nubes and planter boxes were done by Donna Porter, a distinguished horticulturalist, who has been living in the Manuel Antonio area for six years. She created our unique garden areas and has planted a multitude of fruit…lime, lemon, oranges, red grapefruit, guayaba, mamochin, papaya, cacoa, and a small sweet variety of mango trees below the house.
There are numerous energy conservation and alternative energy systems in use at Casa Las Nubes. With 150 inches of annual rainfall in this jungle area, the large 10 foot overhangs of the roof, a signature trait of architect Andres Morales, were designed to capture nearly 2,000 gallons per inch of rainfall for use in the house and gardens. Water storage under the house is held in three 1,320 gallon food safe containers. The water for the house is filtered by three sediment filters, then a charcoal filter, after which it goes through an ultraviolet system for further purification. The end result is the purest drinking water available for guests. The tropical sun heats the water in a roof panel which circulates to an extra insulated 100 gallon hot water backup heater. A Metlund quick demand hot water circulation system provides instant hot water in the bathrooms and kitchen.
Although Tulemar Gardens is on the municipal utility grid, Casa Las Nubes has an alternative electrical system with 4 kw of battery storage with an Magnum inverter to supply electricity instantly when there are power interruptions (which is usually daily!). A battery charger keeps the batteries fully charged. Six 190w photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof to generate power for the batteries and provide the majority of electricity for the house. Guests are asked to follow energy conservation rules by not wasting water and turning off the air conditioners when not in the bedrooms.
