Amazing house and views!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is 5 star. From the views, to the amenities, the service, the housekeeper, and 4 legged friends :) .

My friend and I stayed in this home for 3 nights and we were so sad to leave. The bedrooms are spacious and cozy, and we really enjoyed shower karaoke in the outdoor showers. The kitchen was fully equipped and had mostly everything we needed. The pool is INCREDIBLE. It's super clean (thanks Danny!) with amazing views and perfect temperature.

Daryl was a quick text/phone call away and Danny the caretaker was super accommodating and willing to help with whatever we needed. This home couldn't have been more perfect and we can't wait to return!

Stunning home with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, me, and two teenage sons stayed at Casa Las Nubes for 4 glorious nights in July 2018. The home is remarkable, peaceful, and a great place to get away from it all. The kitchen was stocked with fruit, coffee, fresh eggs, butter, milk, and bottled water...a really nice touch to welcome us. Daryl was very responsive to my questions beforehand and provided us with great directions. Daniel, the caretaker,and his son, Danny, are a delight and work hard to keep the place in topnotch shape. There is plenty to do in the area, but it was so nice to just hang out in the pool, make frozen cocktails using fresh fruit, and watch birds sailing over the mountains.....PURA VIDA! We will definitely be back.

Hard to say goodbye

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week plus at Casa las Nubes. This is a beautiful property. It feels away from it all -- yet it is convenient to many awesome places. We enjoyed so many magical moments -- many of them suggested by the owner. We went zip lining with Adventure Park and Hotel Vista Golfo, sailing in Playa Flamingo with Serendipity Charters, enjoyed several afternoons at Samara beach, ate a fantastic dinner at an Argentinean steak house and booked a massage right at the house. No matter what we did each day, it was a true pleasure to come home each evening to that pool and the sound of monkeys and frogs. We went on several hikes including one with a wildlife guide. In reality, we saw more wildlife on the property than on our hikes-- monkeys, lizards, a turtle, one snake, birds and more birds.

As others have mentioned, the caretaker is a true gentleman and checked on us daily. He made us feel welcome and his son is a delight. The owners are very responsive and replied to our emails very promptly. For us -- it was perfect. We hope to be back soon! Sue & Ron

If you're on the fence about booking, stop your searching and book RIGHT NOW!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Las Nubes for 5 days this past week, and it was absolutely perfect!!

The house itself was great, everything you need to make your stay comfortable, but the absolute shining star was the outdoor space.

Hands down the best pool any of us have ever been in. It’s huge, has so many different areas to it, and was perfectly in the sun the whole day. And the nature! Everywhere you looked there was something fascinating to see. Beautiful flowers surround the property, monkeys in the trees, amazing birds everywhere… the house was honestly the best part of our trip.

Oh, and the sunsets! Perfect views over the pool.

The house is an easy hour and a half drive from the airport, and about 25 min drive to the amazing Samara beach. Small grocery stores super close to the house, and larger ones a short drive away.

But I saved the best for last: the caretaker Danny. He was there for us whenever we needed him for absolutely anything. He arranged tours for us, knew the answer to all our questions, and if we needed anything at all he helped us out. All the while being one of the nicest humans we’re ever met!!

We can’t say enough good things about our stay, and if you’re at all wondering if you should book, do it: you won’t regret it.
