AWARD WINNING LUXURY VILLA - OCEAN VIEW, TULEMAR BEACH, LOTS OF WILDLIFE

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
We just arrived back to Texas from Tulemar. We stayed in the most beautiful home called Casa la Nubes. The home has everything you will ever need. Diego and Vanessa made sure we experienced all there was to offer. He suggested ways to save time by combining excursions. So we did the ATV/Zipline. Which I must say, was a blast! Also, did the rafting which was exciting. They arranged for a chef to come to our house, his name was Tito. Outstanding food... Lastly, Vanessa set us all up for in house massages. Very relaxing after all the adventures.. All the bookings were arranged by them,which was super nice. They even stocked our refrigerator before we arrived. I can't say enough about Tulemar service as you can see. I would definetly return, hopefully sooner than later...



Tulemar is a wonderful resort, shuttle to beach was great. People very helpful and very friendly...

Exceeds expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
We loved Casa Las Nubes. 6 adults - 2 'old' parents and 2 'kids' in their 20's with significant others - spent a week there and loved every minute, from when we walked in and saw the water literally under our feet to the monkeys cavorting just off the balcony (but they never ventured inside) to the great layout of the bedrooms and living/kitchen areas.
The service from Diego and Vanessa was exceptional and personal. They were attentive and spoiled us. We didn't even rent a car. The beach service with Daniella and David and Luis was great. The beach food was very good, as were the drinks.
We had Kristopher come and cook for us on 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the experience.
I would go back and rent this home or pretty much any of the others in Tulemar that we saw. The views, the service, the house, the beach, the wildlife, all were literally over the top of our expectations.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Kelly, for the wonderful review of Casa las Nubes. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. The villa, the award winning design and the ocean views are really amazing. As you mentioned, the resort of Tulemar, where we are located has its own beach! Lots of wildlife here too! Diego, the house manager, knows the best tour guides and restaurants in the area. Kris, our private chef, is a treat for that special dinner. We'd love to have you back again!

Our imagination came short of just how beautiful Casa Las Nubes is. You walk in and magically you leave behind all the city hustle. Of course, Diego makes it special, he is always there to assist.I{m sure we will be back. Pura Vida, Mark, Alicia and family

We had the most relaxing and rejuvenating stay at Casa Las Nubes.

Waking up to white face monkeys trekking through the trees was a delightful sight.

And cooling off in the infinity pool while watching the sunset was so refreshing.

We felt comfortable, safe and secure and will definitely return as soon as we can.

Tulemar is exactly where you want to be in Manuel Antonio! It is the only gated and secure, 33 acre resort development in Manuel Antonio with its own private beach. There are nature and hiking trails leading thru the jungle areas complete with plaques describing trees and vegetation. You will see as much wildlife in Tulemar as you do at the national park including all three types of monkeys, sloths, exotic birds, insects and other wildlife. The private beach is perfect for swimming and snorkeling and has free lounge chairs, umbrellas, sea kayaks, and boogie boards for all guests to use. Food and beverage service is available. You can walk 5 minutes down the hill to the beach and either walk back up or take the resort shuttle.
