About Daryl Wells

We also have a beautiful home on the lakefront in Chicago, so we are able to enjoy the best of both worlds. We can enjoy all the pleasures of urban life and then escape to the beauty and tranquility of a natural paradise at our home in Costa Rica.

Daryl Wells purchased this house in 2005

Why Daryl Wells chose Costa Rica

We feel this is one of the most beautiful settings imaginable. The house sits atop the highest hill of the valley, so every room has an amazing view. We designed this home ourselves, and had it custom built to offer the best in modern comforts while respecting the environment.

What makes this house unique

Everyone that visits our home is amazed by the beauty of this setting. Truly, every direction you look provides a breathtaking views, the sounds of nature fill the air and the fragrance of flowers is everywhere. This location provides complete privacy and tranquility and yet is located within 15 minutes of a popular beach resort, waterfalls, horseback riding and all the adventures one can experience in tropical rainforest.

One of our guests was very kind to share the amazing photos of their visit with us, and many of these photos have been used on this listing.

Our New Home Away from Home...

  • 5 of 5

We visited the House in the Clouds in July 2016 and returned with two of our kids for a short stay in November 2016. Both times we enjoyed the beauty and tranquility of Costa Rica. As many have said - this house has an amazing view. The night time view of the stars is one of my favorite followed by the view of early morning fog.

This time we took the opportunity to venture out to other surrounding towns. The people, the food and the atmosphere were great for us and the kids.

We would return to this place in a New York minute.

Truly incredible

  • 5 of 5

We could not believe our luck! We've been to many holiday rentals and Casa Las Nubes gets the top spot. The pool is generous with views to die for, and you have the use of the luxurious pool room with its wraparound views. Danny, the caretaker, is one of the sweetest people I've had the pleasure of meeting. Our 10 year old twins loved the wildlife around the property. The drive to the beach at Samara is a pleasure. We had planned to explore the area a bit, but in the end we were happy to go surfing at the beach and then come back for the wonderful mountain views and to enjoy the pool. The whole property has been created with a real eye for detail, and every bit of it is gorgeous. Thank you to the owners for allowing others to share their amazing home.

Owner's Response: It is so very kind of you to have written such a nice review. We especially appreciate when our foreign guests take the time to share their thoughts. We will let translate this for Danny, to ensure he hears your kind words. He and his family are such good people and we are lucky to have them care for our home. We hope you have the chance to return one day, but in the meantime keep the peace and tranquility of this spot in your hearts. Thank you!

A dream come True

  • 5 of 5

As hesitant as I was to believe that this home would be as beautiful as shown in the pics, all my doubts were ended as we drove up the hill to the home. The groundskeeper DANNY & his son are the most humble respectful people ever. I still keep daydreaming about our time at this Beautiful home and honestly can't wait to visit Again!

Out of this world

  • 5 of 5

This was our return trip to Casa las Nubes after thoroughly enjoying this property and stay last winter. Daryl and Michael's home is truly "out of this world". In my wildest dreams I could not imagine a place this beautiful and relaxing. Danny and Daniel seemed genuinely excited to see us again. Little Danny literally jumped into our arms and gave us all big hugs. He is so adorable and friendly. And we were pleasantly surprised by a home cooked meal by this wonderful family. This trip we toured Diria coffee plant in Hojancha. Not easy to find, but well worth the struggle. (take it from us if you are driving, don't try the "short cut" from Camital, go around through Nicoya). We also made return trips to Samura Beach, Carrillo Beach and El Colibra steak house. And made a day trip to Poas Volcano National Park, north of San Jose. Also worth the 4 hour drive to get a glimpse of the crater lake in the volcano through the mist. Guys, if you'll have us we WILL be back. We love, love, love your home and pool! Sharon, Cindy and Beth

It is a high end fabulous retreat in spectacular nature!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a space that takes your breath away every day with the sheer beauty and majesty of nature, this is your spot. Watch the hawks soar in the sky, or butterflies dance around the pool or big blue birds hang out in the tree outside your bedroom. Chill in the amazing infinity pool that gives you a stunning view of the Costa Rican landscape. Take a shower outside every morning and hear exotic bird calls. Or go find a beach close by and come back to four star luxury with cozy sheets and comfy towels. The caregiver has a smile that puts you at ease early and the entire place is user friendly. It is a keeper. I will be back.
