  • Secluded, comfortable, and totally awesome!

    "Wonderful stay! We enjoyed the views, sunsets, and wonderful birds all over this property. Accommodations were clean and comfortable; Henry was very helpful. Marten was very kind and helped us with anything we needed. Trails throughout the property were perfect for bird watching and enjoying the Costa Rican life. The front porch - we sat out during the day into the evening until dark enjoying the landscape and finally watching the fire flies. Was a perfect relaxing two weeks. I would return here in a heartbeat! The two roads leading to the property are certainly an experience but worth the trip. Nuevo Arenal was close by and had many Sodas and restaurants that had great food! We really enjoyed our trip!"

  • 5 stars all around!

    "My husband and I stayed at Casa de Calkins for 5 days on the first leg of out Costa Rican honeymoon. PROS: walking distance to town! Full size fridge with ice maker Locked gate and parking Air conditioning Cable! We didn't think we'd watch TV but we did, a lot and it was so nice to chill in the ac and watch English television after a long day exploring Hot water, good water pressure and towels supplied Very clean! CONS: the neighborhood can get a little loud, between the neighbors playing their trumpet (lol) and the dogs barking but nothing some ear plugs can't fix The bed was very hard for our liking Gregg and Carol were so sweet and welcoming. We enjoyed getting to know them during our trip and would recommend their cabina to our friends and will stay again if we pass through."

  • Wonderful house, close to town, great customer service

    "Stayed here with a group of friends. The house itself was very nice, it was clean, had a great living room to hang out in, balcony and pool. It is air conditioned and very comfortable. The location is less than a 10 minute walk from town or a $3 cab ride. The customer service is wonderful. Nohelia and Edison were a huge help in planning our entire vacation, from transportation to all the activities we wanted to do. While we were there, Nohelia was always available to help with anything we needed, including things like ordering food, calling cabs, and answering any other questions. I highly recommend this place for your stay, the house itself is great and the included services are wonderful."

  • Just Like Home

    "This property is located in a rural setting with great people and pets as neighbors. Taxi rides to town are about $4.00 but we also walked it. About a little over a mile walk. The outside is beautiful and very inviting to relax in. You do hear regular neighborhood noises during the day but cannot see anything in others yards and the nights are nice and quite. The inside of the house is comfortable for lounging and cooking. The grounds and house were very clean and well stocked. It did not have a washing machine but the laundry service was reasonable with pick up and delivery to your door. The air conditions in the house worked great. The extra bedroom outside is not part of the house and appears to be a carport turned into an extra room if needed. It is comfortable and nicely decorated but the bathroom and shower in it have no hot water so we use the shower in the house. That was no big deal though. The beds in all rooms were very comfortable. The wi-fi was good for a rural area. I particularly appreciated the concierge service provided by the grounds keeper. She booked our tours, arranged transportation for us and helped us connect with the laundry service. She also was very thorough on showing us how everything worked in the house and where everything was before she left it to us. There were 4 of us all together and found the accommodations wonderful. There is plenty of room for large families to be comfortable as well. This might seem odd to say but I really appreciated being able to flush the toilet paper in the toilet as many places in Costa Rica you can not do this (a question you should ask when seeking a place to stay). There are other properties that are fancier but would cost a lot more. For what you pay for this one you are getting a great value. Communication with the owners was great during the whole process of our booking and planning. I would definitely stay here again."
