Better than home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week in Rene's casita in February. It was a great house and Rene didn't miss a detail! Anything we needed was there. Rene provided a list of names/numbers of transport and we had a great time with Hector, the Tuc Tuc driver. The Casita is an easy walk to the city center and the bicycles are great for getting around more quickly. The courtyard is very relaxing and the rooftop terrace provided great sunset and moonlight views! Awesome vacation-Can't wait to go back!

My two adult children and I stayed in Rene's house for 2+ weeks in late Dec./Jan 2016. Of course, this a great time to visit Guatemala with dry and warm weather. The house was perfect for us with plenty of room for everyone to have private space. Rene made sure there was food and coffee to get us through our first day. There is always plenty of drinking water. The kitchen has all the necessities. Bathrooms were surprisingly stocked with full sized soap, shampoo, conditioner, hairdryer and towels. Nice hot water! There is a washer and dryer in the house and I was happy to find a clothes line and clothes pins, as well. The property is very well groomed with an awesome covered picnic table on the rooftop terrace. This is a great spot for early morning and early evening reading and relaxing. We brought a couple of the garden chairs up to the terrace. Rene is the perfect host. We only needed to contact him a few times and he was gracious and very quick to respond. Because we were there over New Years we did have a bit of noise from fireworks that continued on for a few day. Guatemalans do love their fireworks! The street that the house sits on is a busy one, with traffic all throughout the day, but by mid evening things quiet right down. The distance to town was a perfect, direct-shot walk, taking about 10-15 minutes. We loved Rene's house and hospitality and I would highly recommend it for any couple or family visiting this beautiful old colonial town. Hopefully we will see you again, Rene!!

Great place to stay for family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four fell in love with this home. We had breakfasts in the professionally gardened courtyard and some dinners on the rooftop terrace, watching the sunset over the mountains and volcanoes. Rene is a superb host and able to help with information, such as finding us a very reasonable transport to activities such as a volcano hike and a coffee plantation tour. The home is very comfortable with the amenities (including laundry!) that you'll need. Also located behind a hotel so when you want a great restaurant steps from your door, the hotel has it.

Such a lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

This house couldn't have been better. It was so cozy and comfortable, close-in and spotlessly clean. Besides far exceeding our expectations of a clean and comfortable base of operations during our stay, our host anticipated our needs and provided generously to attend them. All we had to do was get off the plane and his driver was there to pick us up. A bottle of wine awaited us after a long day of travel, and in the morning we found we had been given the makings for a lovely breakfast! The house itself was indeed cozy, and at the same time well laid out to provide great common space as well a privacy for everyone. The garden fountain outside the two main bedrooms provided sweet sounds to fall asleep by. Our host also owns one of the best restaurants in town and we enjoyed a number of meals there. We hope this house is available to us for a return trip, and can't recommend it more highly to others.
