We have to first say it was not an easy thing to write a review on Casa Las Nubes since all previous guest had already shared everything that we wanted to share about this master piece of architecture or if you prefer this breathtaking eden of peace and beauty. My partner and I are both mid 30's French Canadian from Montréal. We had one full week to enjoy and live at Casa Las Nubes at the beginning of our 3 weeks trip in Costa Rica.

I will start by saying that I’m known among my friends and family to be very difficult to impress and satisfy in terms of “accommodations". In other words very picky…;) The minute we contacted the owners with our initial questions we had regarding their property we felt something different. They did not want to simply rent their house. We felt they wanted to share the experience of their house with us. This house is so special it's an experience to live. It became a big highlight of our trip.

When we first arrived to the property, and walked up the stairs that leads to the first breathtaking point of view of this house, I told myself and my partner that this would be a week of a lifetime. The minute we walked thru that entrance we felt like nothing else mattered… It was just to good to be true… Every morning we would pinch ourselves sitting around the infinite pool and just starring at the amazing views… Listening to the wildlife surrounding and living in front of us. It was so relaxing, so rejuvenating, we were able to really disconnect from our busy stressful work lives and take a moment for ourselves… The sunset … floating in the pool with a drink and some clouds sitting in the mountains in front of us was just one of the best memory we will keep. Even if some days we would go out to visit the area, beaches & Park, we would come back early just to make sure we would be able to enjoy the end of the day at the pool. Dany the house caretaker was very nice and welcoming! We even downloaded an app to be able to speak and translate live with him ;)) We asked him few things and when he did not knew he would get back to us later. We felt like friends visiting. His son made us smile and welcome us every time we pass by the gate at the entrance of the land.

We will be back for sure !! We wish all future guest to enjoy as much as we did. On this day of Canadian Thanksgiving, Darryl & Michael, we will never thank you enough for letting us share this dream of yours.
Merci encore mille fois et à très bientôt ;)

Staying in Costa Rica? Look no further!

Casa Las Nubes is an epic vacation destination. The fact that Daryl and Michael have successfully built such an astonishing house in Costa Rica is impressive, but that they are willing to share it with the HomeAway community is even more so. The entire experience from first contact with the owners to the last day of our stay was remarkable. Danny and David (the property's caretakers) answered any questions we had and gave advice on what to do and see. Danny works incredibly hard to make sure the grounds around the house are well cared for. He even came to get us when the monkeys were lounging in the trees on the property (he knew I was searching for them).

The house itself is an architectural gem surrounded by the natural beauty of unspoiled tropical forest. If you appreciate clean architecture, I think you'll be hard pressed to find a more spectacular home in Costa Rica. Since the guesthouse is just a few steps down from the pool, it does not feel isolated or split off from the rest of the home. The outdoor showers are brilliant, and the guesthouse comes fully equipped with a blender for making some fresh fruit cocktails! Daryl and Michael only rent out the guesthouse when no one is staying in the main home, so it truly feels like you have rented the entire campus.

The pool is massive and forms a large "L" shape right at the corner of the hill, providing massive views. There is even a terraced section of the pool that runs the length of the home's main living room, and a conveniently located outdoor shower and bathroom. This area of the home is so surreal that you may not want to leave the property at all. However, if you do decide to explore, here are some of our favorite things to visit:

Best Beach - Carillo (~35-40 minutes away, beautiful and very few visitors)
Best Restaurant - El Colibri (located in Carillo, Argentinian grill)
Best Soda - La Cuchara (short walk from the house, delicious Costa Rican food)
Best Grocery Store - the supermarket in Nicoya (short drive away and fully stocked).

Overall, we fell in love with Costa Rica, but admittedly we love Casa Las Nubes even more. We can't wait to come back!

P.S. We drove from San Jose, which was straightforward and easy, but I highly recommend flying to Liberia to save yourself a few hours of driving.
