Antigua house description

Furnished home is located in Central Antigua very close to Casa Santo Domingo (one of the best hotels in town) in an exclusive residential gated community. It is also within a few minutes from major attractions such as Las Capuchinas, San Jeronimo, San Jose el Viejo, La Recoleccion, Ermita de Santa Cruz, Finca Filadelfia, Finca La Azotea, and many other.

Services provided include: equipped kitchen, wi-fi internet, phone for local calls, TV/cable, laundry room, drinking water, cleaning, linens, towels, soap, etc. Details will be provided in a rental agreement.

This is a newer house built following colonial code (1 floor for residential) by a local architect specialized in colonial re-construction. You'll enjoy the many artisan details and tranquility you'll encounter.

I will be glad to offer suggestions on places to visit, activities that match your interests, and to facilitate your transportation.

Keywords: Study Spanish at home or at School; furnished; ready for a nice family vacation in a great location.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: We love so much going back to Antigua that we decided to build a house in one of the best areas in town so that the whole family could enjoy it. We love Antigua because from there we can easily arrange day trips to the Lake, Monterrico Beach in the Pacific, Pacaya Volcano, Chichi and other places. Also we always find there is so much to do in town: bike riding, horse riding, coffee farm visits, shopping handcrafts, museums, musical concerts sometimes, many restaurants, and so on. We hope you'll enjoy all that Antigua has to offer and I bet you will want to keep coming back too! Sonia and Mario, Chicago

              Why the Owner Chose Antigua:
              Location, location, location.... house is located in North East corner of main town in a very exclusive gated residential community...before we built the house we chose this location carefully at a premium for our family stays in Antigua with the objective to be in walking distance to major attractions but not too close so that we could have greater privacy away from busy public market/bus terminal area. If we take shortest routes, on a normal day, it takes about ~5 min walk to Santo Domingo, ~10 min walk to Capuchinas, ~12-15 min walk to Santa Catalina Arch, ~15-walk 20 min to Central Park.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You can walk within the gated community and enjoy the nice gardens we have around.
