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, 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, cocoa, and a small sweet variety of mango trees below the house.

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?

Dramatic and wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my trip to Quepos and staying at this home made it all the better. This is an amazing home, like something you would see in Architectural Digest or an architecture magazine. It was truly impressive and everything about it was amazing. Can't go wrong with this villa.

Truly Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Where to begin! We were 5 women celebrating turning 50 this year. From the initial inquiry to the end of our stay, the staff at Tulemar went above and beyond in taking care of every need and question with courtesy and good humor. We stayed in a home on the property, Casa Las Nubes, which was absolutely incredible in every way. Decor, ocean views, architecture were all amazing. Indoors melds with outdoors with the pool extending from the living room to 2 terraces. Wildlife was everywhere. Monkeys came to our terraces on more than one occasion. Our personal house concierge, Carlos, was incredible. He checked in on us every day, took care of our transportation and every excursion we did, arranged for food to be delivered, and came immediately when we had a minor issue with the electricity. The beach at Tulemar is private and secluded with food and bar as well as kayaks, boogie boards, lounge chairs and towels. The restaurant on property is also very good with an amazing view. Every member of the staff - from maid to gardener to waiter to concierge were helpful, courteous, kind, and full of fun. The property and people are the epitome of "Pura Vida."

Casa Las Nubes Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing vacation at Tulemar in the most spectacular house, Casa Las Nubes. Upon walking through the front door you are met with stunning views of the ocean as the house is in and of itself part of the landscape with open air and an infinity pool that is smack dab in the middle of the house. I don't know how many superlatives I can use to relate this vacation to you as it may start to sound over the top, but that was our experience at Tulemar, over the tree tops, hence the name of the house! With holler monkeys in your backyard as you rise with your morning coffee. Diego and Vanessa helped us from the moment we began to plan our trip stocking the fridge, setting up excursions, and arranging for a chef when desired. Costa Rica is magical on it's own but coupled with that of the Casa Las Nubes staff and you will have an unforgettable experience!

Beautiful Tulemar, Casa Las Nubes

  • 5 of 5

Pura Vida!

We just returned from a week at Tulemar, we stayed at Casa Las Nubes which happens to be absolutely perfect. The villa was spectacular with a view to match. We traveled with our 4 daughters, there was more than enough room, we loved it. The photos cannot do it justice. The whole vacation was made easy to plan with the help of the staff at Tuelmar, I was able to plan everything advance. What made the trip extra special for us was the staff, our concierge, AL met us when we arrived, gave a tour, he was available to us if we

needed anything, from how to work the sound system to finding the best place for dinner. The time we spend was not nearly enough, we can't wait to return. The country and the people of Costa Rica are amazing.

Casa Las Nubes

  • 5 of 5

Our family took our first (and not our last!) trip to Costa Rica this past spring break and spent the whole week in Tulemar at the amazing Casa Las Nubes! We knew we were in for a treat, but we had no idea what a magical week it would be! The house far exceeded our expectations - our 13 and 15 year olds didn't want to leave the house to go exploring the area, because it was so incredible! The sights and sounds in the backyard are unbelievable and we lived for the visits from the monkeys! I have never seen a sunset like the one at Casa Las Nubes!

Our house concierge, Carlos Zuniga, went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed (from stocking the house with groceries before our arrival, to helping us plan the best excursions, to helping us arrange for meals at the house by the amazing chef, Marlon, to taking our family into town to see the sights and souvenir shop, to teaching us about the area and animals, I could go on and on). He was like a part of our family and we were all sad to leave him when the trip was over.

We loved our time at the beautiful private beach and our frozen drinks from Daniella were the best we have ever had. None of us can agree on what our favorite excursion was but we zip lined, learned to surf, went on a guided tour through Manuel Antonio Park, went on a sloth hunt around the grounds of Tulemar and explored as many places as we could.

This was the best vacation with the best house and the best concierge and staff that we have ever had. Our teenagers keep asking us to go back there again this coming spring break - that says a lot! If we do go back, we will stay at Casa Las Nubes and will only want Carlos as our concierge and Daniella as our bartender!! Pure Vida!

Amazing property and amazing service!

  • 5 of 5

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 definitely return, hopefully sooner than later.
