Overview

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom Suites, 3.5 baths, sleeps 8 total

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Tulemar is definitely a little piece of heaven, and I almost don’t know where to start!!



We stayed in Casa Las Nubas, and the moment we arrived we knew we had picked the perfect accommodations!! Before even arriving, Howard, the owner of Casa Las Nubas had spent a lot of time on the phone with us; filling us in on everything we needed to know. And we arrived this amazing house took our breath away!!



Diego our concierge was waiting with his friendly smile and a cool drink. After already talking at length with Diego and his wonderful wife Vanessa, organizing everything for our 11 day stay, I already felt comfortable with Diego. And by the end of our stay, we felt like their wonderful family were now our friends.



As far as Tulemar itself, I don’t think Howard could have picked a better spot to build his amazing house. The staff in the office at Tulemar do everything in their power to make sure you pick the best accommodations to suit your needs. Never once did I feel pressured to pick a certain villa. Del Mar listened to what I was looking for and did everything in his power to see that I got exactly what I was looking for. Our children had decided to plan out our whole day for our 22nd Wedding Anniversary, as a gift and I know my son Cole must have driven poor Del Mar nuts, because he wanted to make sure every detail was perfect. But never once did Del Mar make him feel like he was bothering him too much!! Del Mar even stayed at work long after he should have gone home to get the house ready for our arrival back in the evening. There were roses and candles everywhere!!! Thanks again Del Mar!!!



The beach at Tulemar is one of the best assets that Tulemar has. The water was like swimming in your bath tub and the boogie boards made it even more enjoyable!!! It was so nice arriving at the beach and having everything done for you!! They asked you how many loungers you wanted, if you wanted umbrellas for shade and also brought you clean towels. There was also a bar that served drinks and food. What more could you ask for?

Magical!

  • 5 of 5
The house, the property and the staff are fantastic!!!! We are all seasoned travelers, but this place tops it all. Diego and his wife Vanessa took great care of us, suggested and organized all the trips and gave excellent ideas for fun things to do. The owner sent us a friendly email with detailed information, fabulous suggestions, hints, and had fruits waiting for us at the house! The house is so beautiful, really one of a kind, the property is marvelous, the staff competent beyond words. We saw monkeys, sloths, birds of all types, and many other animals. The beach is wonderful, and we loved all the awesome bodyboarding. The whole thing was magical and we will never forget it. Simply put: Pura vida!

Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
You know how it is when you see incredible photos of a property and the real thing doesn't approach the photos? Well, this is just the opposite. As good as the many pictures were, we weren't prepared for the spectacular house that was our home for one week. From the moment we entered the front door, we were very, very impressed. The materials including floors, doors, furniture, appliances, etc. were all top drawer. The views...incomparable! The concierge, Diego Morales, made the trip. He was there when you needed him to arrange day trips, make restaurant reservations, provide transportation, etc. He was always available and always had a big smile. Tulemar is a wonderful, safe and secluded setting on a private beach. There's even food and umbrella service at the beach. Bottom line is that it's one of the best vacations our family every spent. It was just much too brief. Two families went to Costa Rica together, 4 adults and 3 teen age kids. There was plenty of room for all and everyone can't wait to return.

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
We recently took a weeklong vacation in Costa Rica, staying at Casa las Nubes. From the beginning, working with the owners was a pleasure. They actively communicated with us on planning our arrival and activities during our stay. We ended up taking surfing lessons and the ATV/canopy tours, both of which were incredible. We also booked a guide for a hike through Manuel Antonia NP and I would highly recommend it. The guide spotted many animals that we would surely have missed if we'd toured on our own.

Words can't describe how incredible Casa las Nubes is. When you first step in, you're greeted by an incredible open view of the water and surrounding forest. With the openness of the house, we had a group of white-faced monkeys visit one day, which was a special treat. The house has a plunge pool that's covered so we were able to cool off even when it was raining. No question, this is the most beautiful property we've ever stayed in. Housekeeping came promptly whenever we left the house to go to the beach or to town. Diego's team, specially Al and Jonathan, were simply amazing. Always offering to assist in planning our days, taking us to pick up groceries when we arrived, recommending restaurants, etc. Speaking of restaurants, we didn't try the pool restaurant on-site but did return another of times to Cafe Milagro, which is a short walk from the main gate. Highly recommended for any meal, not just breakfast.

No question, we plan to return in the future.

Amazing Property!!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Casa Las Nubes in mid-October with my family...the property is beyond gorgeous!! The architecture is truly amazing and unique - who wouldn't love walking into a home situated around an infinity edge pool with stunning views of the Pacific? Not only is the home itself gorgeous, but the surrounding jungle is just as stunning. We saw monkeys pass through on the trees just below the home each day as well as dozens of exotic birds, sloths, and more!
You honestly get the best of both worlds here - a relaxing, "isolated" and private jungle feel, as well as thriving nightlife, dozens of activities and excursions for the adventurous, even yoga and Pilates! My favorite activity was walking up the hill each morning to the local yoga/Pilates studio for a class.
Furthermore, the concierge and staff were all exceptionally accommodating and welcoming. Every single staff member was ready and willing to help with any need - big or small. The level of professionalism and excellence cannot be matched. The team was phenomenal!
I really couldn't ask for a more relaxing, enjoyable and unique experience. I cannot wait to go back!
