About Leo Barillas

Leo C. Barillas

My wife and I retired at age 55, we have been retired 10 and 17 years respectively and have traveled the world extensively. We love other cultures and like to interact.

Myself having been born in Guatemala -- La Antigua is a big part of my life and a wonderful city to have a second place to call HOME. We are making our home available so that you too can experience my people....

We spend 3 to 6 months of the year in La Antigua, Guatemala or traveling other parts of the globe.

I am a Vietnam Veteran having served in the US Navy from 1964 - 1969, I love and respect those who serve God and country and their neighbors.

We currently live near our grandchildren in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Leo Barillas purchased this house in 2011

Why Leo Barillas chose Guatemala

My American born wife fell in love with La Antigua and the Guatemalan people. Guatemalans are very courteous, kind and respectful of others.

We decided and chose to buy in La Antigua and make this place our home away from home.

What makes this house unique

THE UNIQUE BENEFITS AT THIS HOUSE:

Just three to 5 minutes by car from center of town. It’s convenient to be near the center but still a little away from the noise of the main streets, this house is in a armed guard gated 24/7 security community, 14 infrared video cameras. The neighbors are affluent Guatemalan City dwellers who own their second homes here in Antigua on week-ends.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our stay was great, it was what we expected

Left on 06/25/2011 for a stay in May 2011



We stayed at Casa De Mis Sueños for one week and really enjoyed the amenities as everything is as pictured. The house is beautiful and well maintained, nice quiet location away from the hassled and bustle, yet only 5 minutes by "tuc tuc” or taxi ($1.50 - $2.50) will take you to any point of interest, shopping for souvenirs or restaurants within antigua. We hated to leave antigua, but we will return to stay at Casa De Mis Sueños

Always mesmerizing!

  • 5 of 5

Always a hit! I was here in November of 2014 and did not hesitate to come back. This time I brought a Colombian tourist and a Russian tourist, they both fell in love with the house. The house has all the comforts of home, we just love it and cannot wait to go back!

A 365 degrees experience ! We will be booking again : )

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented house within the week on March 7,2016 and our experience was a 365 degrees. Why? Because the house has a great view from every angle, it was peaceful, only 5 minutes drive from the town of Antigua, the terrace gave us memorable views, all appliances worked as expected including brand new water filtration system. Mr. Barillas, owner, was prompted and respectful even though he was not at the house in person he made us feel welcome. We cannot forget the great service received from Virginia who made the house look very clean and presentable. My wife and I bought flowers from the farmer’s market and Virginia kindly helped us find a vase.

I look forward to our next visit to Antigua, Guatemala and will call Mr. Barillas to book this gem : )

Thank you for making our family vacation an unforgettable experience.

Sincerely,

Giovanni and Family

Visited from Alberta, Canada.

You will love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Could not get over how unique the lay out was and how nicely decorated.

Had a definite cultural feel to it,felt like you were staying in a quaint Guatemalen hotel!

The kitchen was well equipped with stainless steel appliances.

The foyer has a beautiful fountain and that part of the house has a open ceiling to the sky!

Modern bathrooms with a lovely walk in shower.

Comfortable mattresses with big beautiful windows in the bedrooms.

Upstairs a balcony to watch the volcano or to sit and relax with a good book.

We were very impressed with the cable tv had more channels then we do in the states.

You feel very safe there as it is a gated community.

The only complaint is that is was a bit to far to walk into town.

Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful,quiet space to spend time making memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you Paul for your kind words and comments. I agree, the walking distance may be a bit far, but it is away from the hustle and bustle of town. Public transportation, tuc-tucs and taxis are available and it is only less than 5 minutes to the Central Park. We look forward to accommodating you on your next visit. Leo

Beautiful spacious home

  • 5 of 5

We could not even imagine how nice, warm and well-maintained this property is. Modern but built in the antique style of ancient Antigua the house is probably very much different from what you have ever stayed before. Very safe, very quiet and absolutely charming.

Wonderfull and quiet place

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 and my Parents stay at this beautiful house. After getting little lost trying to find this house we were greeted by Virginia and her husband, they were so welcoming.

We spent 11 quiet nights in this house, felt like home, the view from the terrace was beautiful, the house is big and the rooms well decorated, lots of closet space, the house is well equipped, even a crackpot :)

Mr. Barillas (owner ) was so nice and respectful man to work with, if we return to Antigua would for sure to stay again in this house.

This house was little far from the center of Antigua, but walking 3 blocks to take the Chicken bus was fun (2.00 quetzales to take you to the Santa Lucia Ave. was cheap ride)

If you are thinking tovisiting Antigua and you want a nice quiet house to stay, this is for sure the one to rent.
