Casa Las Nubes was recently awarded an America's Property Award, a 5 Star, for Best Property in Costa Rica! This is a stunning, new beautiful luxury villa with a private beach. The casa is nestled in a Costa Rican jungle hillside with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean 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 ocean views. As you enter the front door, you are literally 'walking on water' as the pool feature extends through the entire house. Casa Las Nubes was also featured in a recent issue of Costa Rica's 'architectural digest,' Su Casa Magazine. We were also featured in an Italian architectural magazine. This is truly a one-of-a-kind house in Costa Rica.
In a jungle setting, the villa has daily visitors such as white face, squirrel and howler monkeys, birds, iguanas, sloth, butterflies and other exotic wildlife. An early goal in the design phase of this house, was to have a strong relationship between the exterior and interior spaces. The extensive use of huge windows and open air areas with a pool feature in the middle of the house
helped achieve that goal. Planters running the length of the terraces provide tropical flowers and greenery in the house. A large roof with 10 foot overhangs helps keep the elements of sun and rain out of the house.
Casa Las Nubes has many energy conservation and alternative energy features. A rainwater catchment system, solar hot water panel, 4kw backup electric batteries and power inverter. A quick demand hot water circulation system provides for instant hot water. Six photovoltaic panels have been installed on the roof to help provide off grid electric power to the house.
This luxurious 4,500 sq.ft, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms home is built on three levels, each having private ocean view terraces. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen with granite counter and island tops and all stainless appliances (gas range)is in the house, but catering or a private chef is available for extra fees. There are daily maid and gardener services, and guests have ready access to the house manager, Diego, who serves as your personal assistant throughout your stay. He is able to set up tours and activities. Guests have raved about how wonderful Diego is, and how helpful he was to them while visiting the area.
Only the protected and undeveloped 200 meter Maritime Zone lies between you and the private beach! Tulemar Beach is just a four minute walk (although you may drive or take the shuttle) from the casa. Our beach continues to receive the ecological 'Blue Flag' award from the Costa Rica gov't., showing that it is maintained in a pristine and environmentally correct way. Guests have access to kayaks, boogie boards, and snorkle gear. There is a restaurant and beverage service at the beach. Weddings can be scheduled for the beach. There is a wonderful maintained hiking trail system within this 33 acre gated and secure commumity.
