My partner and I spent two wonderful months in Casa Kaltic this summer. The house and hospitality we were met with there far exceeded our greatest hopes: from top to bottom, the house is beautiful, clean, and carefully decorated, and Roberto is a truly kind and gracious host--available for advice about San Cristobal, assistance, or interesting conversation (he lives right next door). My partner and I are both writers and spent our time at Casa Kaltic working (with two bedrooms, each equipped with a desk, and an excellent internet signal, it's the perfect location for a working couple), exploring the city and taking Spanish classes downtown. As others have mentioned, the house is a pleasant distance from the center of the city (15 minutes by taxi, 30-40 minutes by public transport/combi). It's easy to get into the city, but at Casa Kaltic, you're removed enough to truly focus. On top of that, the neighborhood is lovely, surrounded by forests with easily accessible hiking paths. The neighborhood also feels safe--I am a young woman and felt perfectly secure walking around on my own. Other highlights include the organic garden (from which Roberto invites you to pick vegetables), fully equipped kitchen (we cooked all summer), large bedrooms, TV with cable/HDMI hookup, and hot water. And of course, San Cristobal is a not-to-be-missed city, full of art, international spirit, and interesting local culture. We were a bit concerned about the weather, but found it to be very comfortable during our whole stay (June thru August), neither too hot nor too chilly. We can't wait to return!
