    For some reason Flipkey has disabled their price lists. So here is the rate breakdown for the different seasons.

    Jan 5 - Dec 14, Regular Season: $50/night, 2 night minimum stay

    Dec 15 - Jan 4, Holiday Rate: $80/night, 3 night minimum stay

    Price applies to the first 2 guests. Each addition guest is $5/night/person, which doubles to $10/night/person over the holidays.

    Imagine yourself swinging in a hammock under the spreading arms of a huge, ancient mango tree, watching the neighborhood kids go by laughing on their way to school, all while you enjoy a chilled glass of orange juice that you just squeezed from fresh picked oranges growing right next to the mangoes! Or picture yourself relaxing in a beautiful, huge Jacuzzi tub on an open air, second floor balcony while sipping champagne...

My partner and I stayed at Cabina Caulkins for 5 nights and loved it. It is in a typical Costa Rican neighborhood among the locals and we loved that. Gregg, our host is a wonderful man and was very gracious and accomodating. The setting is very peaceful with your own fenced in backyard. This isn't a luxurious place but it has everything you need to have a relaxing vacation. Gregg willingly allowed us to use his washer/dryer which was a big bonus. I would highly recommend this property. more

Management response:

Staying in an authentic Costa Rican neighbourhood is definitely one of the benefits of Cabina Calkins. You are able to experience local culture and live life as a "Tico". This is a budget rental with comfortable beds, a/c, and a small but fully equipped kitchen. Thanks for staying with us Cari! It was wonderful to meet you! :) more

We stayed over Christmas time and found the "cabina" or cabin/bunky, very comfortable and the owners easy going. The place was clean and any worries about safety were soon forgotten once we walked down to the main strip, through the friendly streets. This is a place that is close to the down town tourist places and excellent local food. Get a driver to take you where you want to go or ask Greg to call a cab. Cheap travel to the volcano and some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever see. We walked, scootered, zip-lined, swam, hiked, rode horses, rapelled down waterfalls and thoroughly enjoyed this area of Costa Rica. The church on Christmas day was amazing and friendly all around. My two teen age boys loved the freedom of the place, the adventures and the food. We will come back again some day soon.... more
