ANTIGUA'S HIDDEN SECRET:

Enjoy a restful stay in our centrally-located, 3 bedroom magnificent, colonial-style, vacation home (sleeps up to 8). You will find that our splendid home offers surprising extras and special touches around every corner – It is more than worthy of its majestic setting! 

What sets this home apart is that you have 2 bedrooms with king-size beds. The living room has a wonderful, cozy fireplace.

All can enjoy the shared solar-heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in a beautiful and tranquil courtyard. The house itself offers: wireless internet,, satellite TV, games and novels, local travel guides, and bicycles. You can rest your weary feet after a stimulating day of sightseeing, by relaxing in front of a roaring fire, surrounded by old wooden, antique beams, and all the comforts of home.

For those of you ‘Chefs’ who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful housekeeper, Dona Clara Luz, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds, for a small additional fee.

Our housekeeper comes for a couple of hours every day to clean included in the cleaning fee and do the laundry, and is always very willing to help out with any small errands, like going to the market. You will certainly enjoy her great sense of humor and zest for life! 

Imagine… a vacation home where you step outside every morning to a majestic volcano! And inside, everywhere you look there is spectacular local art and beautiful colonial architecture of exposed brick, rare-aged wood, and wrought iron. 

Located in a safe, secure neighborhood, it is only 6 blocks from the Parque Central (central square) and just 2 blocks from the main supermarket “The Bodegona” and the local produce market in Antigua.

This beautiful colonial-style home is the perfect home-base from which you and your family and friends can explore the delights that this UNESCO Heritage Site offers. The ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets are all easily accessible by foot.

Extras:

• A massage table for private massages and therapy treatments;

SOME OF OUR GUEST COMMENTS:

'Immediately upon entering my breath was taken away by the beauty of the stone and wood and the magnificent artwork throughout.' Mendez, Seattle, Washington, 10/09/15

'The pictures do not begin to do it justice: I have rented many vrbo properties around the world and this one certainly is among the best!- Trish, El Segundo, CA, 07/04/15

'We have to say everything was perfect-from the volcano views to the commodious rooms to the high speed internet access and cable TV. Of course Clara was the shining jewel as both housekeeper and, on occasion, cook. Don't hesitate to rent this property-the owner, the housekeeper and the community all add up to five stars! Kathy Rose and Hal Vogel' - kathy rose, 05/13/09

'Everthing worked like clock work from beginning to end. This was my 5th trip to Antigua - we have stayed in a lovely Posada, hotels, and home of a friend - this ranks right at the top with some pretty serious competition in regards to previous accomodations! Allison H., Atlantic Beach, FL, 03/26/2016

'It was like a dream living in a castle, the interior decor was very unique. The balcony overlooking the plush tropical garden patio and the beautiful scenic view from our bedroom, viewing the volcano mountains was incredible. Helmut and Bernice Fraund ' - Bernice Fraund, 2015

'Super clean, great location, and wonderful owner.' - Mike, 10/24/15

'it was the perfect place for us to begin our lives together as husband and wife. Beautifully and comfortably appointed, situated in a private, safe, and convenient part of town with multiple breathtaking, unobstructed views of Agua Volcano, and run like a luxury hotel by the lovely and amazing chef, Doña Clara. This house has to be one of the best on VRBO. Many thanks to you & to Doña Clara for providing a 'dream home' for us to start our married life together.' - Alex & Amy Kass, Brooklyn, New York, 09/10/15

'This is a great house, quiet, safe, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a perfect location to walk to town and to the market. .

Upon booking a 5 night minimum stay, you receive a 1 free night at our property in Lake Atitlan!

About The Owner

From Britain, but spent my entire adult life in Guatemala, working in the tourism industry. I am now living in the Twin Cities, and trained as an addiction counselor. Very much miss Guatemala, but Paola, our lovely House manager is onsite to help you with one of our rentals. Do give me a call.... I appreciate any opportunity to be able to talk about Guatemala...the land of eternal Spring.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Guatemala

Nestled between three dramatic volcanoes in Central America, is another of Antigua's hidden secrets - a luxurious, colonial vacation home worthy of the majestic setting in which it sits. The beauty and affordable luxury of this spectacular 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom two-story villa will enchant you. The home is perfect for you to explore the ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets of the world-famous city of Antigua.

What makes this house unique

Just five blocks from the Central Square (Parque Central), this beautifully decorated colonial style home is located in an authentic, friendly neighborhood, Residencial Hermita, and comes fully-equipped with all first-world amenities (broadband internet, cable/satellite TV) and the old world charms (open fireplaces, wooden ceiling beams, beautiful shared garden, courtyard and picturesque swimming pool). The home also comes with a housekeeper, who comes daily from Mon-Sat to clean & do your washing - for a slight additional charge - and will cook delicious meals for you and your family and friends during your stay.

Enjoy the heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in the beautiful and tranquil courtyard, surrounded by lush vegetation.

Beauty and comfort

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and very comfortable. We stayed with five other adults and had plenty of room. You couldn't ask for a better location. Everything is within walking distance. The staff makes the experience even better. They all were very warm and welcoming. We will definitely try to come back. We stayed an extra night because we loved it so much.
