From RT in New York, NY

"There are few places that I have ever been to that rival the beauty of the area surrounding Casa de Nubes. The house is spacious, beautiful and comfortable. We will definitely return to this special place!"

From MA in Atlanta, GA

“Casa de Nubes is an amazing slice of tropical paradise! It was difficult to leave the home to go hiking because every few minutes another gorgeous tropical bird came by as if to welcome us. Looking out from either of the balconies, the lush mountainous landscape stretched as far as the eye can see. The mornings were perfectly clear and there is something to be said about sharing Costa Rican coffee with colorful toucans… In the afternoons, clouds moved in, cooling the area. In the evening, clear skies returned, exposing the most beautiful starry sky imaginable. There are many wonderful sights and activities only minutes from the house and I highly recommend visiting Pacifica Falls in the Cloudbridge Reserve. The locals are incredibly friendly and the Property Manager, Juan Carlos, was very helpful with every bit of information we wanted about the surrounding area and about Costa Rica in general. He speaks perfect English and was always available to us. The fantastic location, nearby activities, and great pricing make Casa de Nubes a true gem!”

From EG in Virginia Beach, VA

“Our stay at Casa de Nubes was so incredibly relaxing and serene. The views from the deck are astounding and you can be entertained for hours by all of the birds and wildlife around. In the early mornings we liked to have coffee out on the deck and enjoy the sunrise and the sounds of the forest, curled up with a good book. Later in the day, when the clouds rolled in, we felt like we were in a completely different place. The clouds literally encompass the entire house and you can watch them slowly creep through the forest every afternoon. The house itself is comfortable and spacious, and the locals in San Gerardo de Rivas are welcoming and friendly.

There are numerous hiking trails around the house and it’s worth a trip to visit the Cloudbridge Nature Reserve just a short drive away to see beautiful gardens and waterfalls. The house is also conveniently located very close to Mount Chirripo National Park. The roads can be a little tricky, especially in the rainy season, so be sure to rent a car with 4-wheel drive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Casa de Nubes and cannot wait until we can come back and visit again!”

From TP in Colorado Springs, CO

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw my first toucan from the balcony! It was only 10 feet from me and it was watching me as I was watching it. Only minutes later, the remainder of the toucan ‘family’ showed up—how wonderful! Thank you for having us in your wonderful home!”

From PB in Virginia Beach, VA

“This home is amazing! You wake up to hummingbirds buzzing outside your bedroom window, then take your morning coffee out to the deck. Since the house is in the cloud forest, it is possible to look out over the tree tops and see all the way to the tallest peaks in Costa Rica. The kitchen has wrap around windows, so the cook never misses out on any of the views. This place makes washing dishes fun. Location, location, location!!! You will be able to hike to your hearts content along roads lined with flowers. There is a coffee grove right in your backyard. The town is very close by with the terrific market where you can meet the native people selling their fruits & vegetables. If you choose not to move for the day, you can sit on the porch with a book and binoculars and watch literally hundreds of birds in a season. After sundown, the weather cools off, so you can light a fire in the fireplace on the deck and indulge in adult beverages to your hearts content. This special home will bring peace and contentment to anyone who chooses it as their destination.”

From LB in Thomasville, GA

“Casa de Nubes is is the perfect retreat for quiet reflection and meditation with all the entertainment that you need provided by Mother Nature. The views are stunning. My time as a guest at Casa de Nubis bring the most wonderful memories to mind. I highly recommend this home in the clouds for the perfect vacation spot.”
