Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

My husband stayed here for a brief honeymoon right after our wedding. The pictures do not quite do this place justice: It's INCREDIBLE. After a super stressful wedding season, this was exactly what we needed. Neither of us have slept that well in years. Daryl and Rahni were really great about making sure we had everything that we needed in advance of our trip and during our stay. My Spanish is not great, but I had no difficulty communicating with Danny when we arrived. I could not provide a higher recommendation for a place to stay in Guancaste.

Costa Rica

This was the absolutely most beautiful place I have ever stayed!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I went to casa las nubes for our honeymoon trip for a few days. Casa Las Nubes was the most intimate, peaceful, and breathtaking places we have ever seen. Walking up the stairs to the main walk way instantly takes you to the Infiniti pool along with the wistful view of the mountains. The living area in the house is very good as well. Modern appliances, outdoor showers, multiple rooms and tons of space! I honestly would have paid even more to stay at Casa Las Nubes and wish we stayed there longer. If this place is on your top 5 list to stay in Costa Rica, move it to #1 and take a trip to casa las nubes. You won't be disappointed! Also, Danny, his son, and the super nice dog are very helpful with everything you need! Make sure you speak Spanish as well or bring a Spanish dictionary! Cheers!

This place is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Before even arriving we were impressed with the communication from the homeowners. They provided us with detailed information on activities to do in the area as well as house information and great directions. Upon arriving at the house we were astonished by the endless views and the incredible infinity pool. Between the guest house and the pool house we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. We went into Samara a couple of times to go to the beach and go out to dinner. The drive was only about 30 minutes, so it's nice to be close enough to activities, but scenic enough to completely relax. The four nights we stayed at this home simply were not enough! We hope to be back soon! P.S. - the zip-lining tour that they recommend (Adventure Park) is 100% worth the drive. It was amazing and far exceeded our expectations.

Owner's Response: Hola amigos! Thank you for the lovely review. It's especially nice to know that you enjoyed the zipline tour. Our first time zip-lining we were a bit nervous and intimidated, but the next time we go back will let loose and scream our lungs out! We loved sharing the beauty of Costa Rica with you!

Absolutely Stunning!!!

  • 5 of 5

I decided to introduce my wife and kids to Costa Rica and even though I had traveled to the country several times before, I had never visited Nicoya. We rented a 4x4 at the airport in San Jose and took the scenic drive to Casa las Nubes. We used the directions Daryl provided which led us to the front gate where we were met by the caretaker, Danny and Danielito (his 8 year old son). Upon arriving at the top of the hill, we were absolutely blown away and the place was more than what we expected. My kids and wife were overwhelmed and extremely pleased with the peace and tranquility that the space provided. The space, view, and location provided the perfect opportunity for my family to reconnect and recharge. I can't say enough about the caretaker and the accommodations. Having the entire space to ourselves was wonderful. We stayed in the pool the entire time. We plan to return in the near future and would recommend this place without hesitation. You will not be disappointed! Thank you Daryl for sharing your piece of paradise.

Well Deserved Praise!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Casa las Nubes in mid-July of 2017. First of all, the owners were very helpful in their communications from start to finish, they definitely go the extra mile to make sure your stay is perfect. Second of all, you have to experience this pool, for us it was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica. The property is just off the main road going to Samara but it feels like you are really "away from it all" when you are there. The caretaker lives at the bottom of the hill and keeps the gate and is available to help with anything you might need (although he is Spanish speaking only). Simply put, we found the previous reviews to be accurate, the property is clean, modern and comfortable and an ideal setting for relaxing your cares away. We would love to return some day and spend a little more time here. Thanks to the owners for making this property available.

Fantastic home!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this incredible home in February. It was absolutely beautiful! Not only do you have the guest house (which was very nice!) but you also have access to the pool house which was fantastic! The best part of our whole trip was hanging out at the property. We were able to cook at the house most nights. The grocery store was not too far away. We also visited a beach near-by one afternoon. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Costa Rica!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, it makes us so happy to think that after all these months you still think of our home. We've added more fruit trees to the orchard, so hopefully next time you can enjoy some fresh produce grown on our land! We would be happy to share the beauty and tranquility of this spot anytime you are able to visit!
