Antigua house description

Beautiful Casa Bella is located just four blocks from Parque Central in Antigua and only two blocks from the main artisans and food markets. The house sits in a gated/guarded community and is only 10 years old. The colonial style, lovely antiques and fun art work add to the charm of this unique house, which includes all the conveniences of home.

The two large bedrooms upstairs share a spacious master bathroom with shower and tub. The master bedroom has a queen bed, large walk-in closet and front and back patios. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be made into a king. It also has a large walk-in closet and a beautiful view of the volcanoes, one of which is active and can often be seen burping out smoke. (see the 2nd video!)

The bedrooms open on to a covered patio and large rooftop patio. Enjoy the garden below, the potted plants & porch swing, while gazing at the magnificent and ever-changing sky around Volcan Agua to the south. This view is stunning!

The two downstairs bedrooms have the same bed configurations as the two upstairs, except they each have their own bathrooms with walk-in showers. These bedrooms share access to a beautiful back garden and a lush central garden with a pila fountain.

All bedding is 100% cotton. Each bed is provided with a light and fluffy natural down comforter.

Garden and hanging plants surround the patios along with tasteful art and colonial antiques. The indoor-outdoor living is easy to get accustomed to, as the mild year round temperatures invite the visitor into the fresh sun shining air.There are cozy couches on the patio and table and chairs, making it easy to transition from indoors to outdoor living.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a small colonial dining table for four. There is a large dining room (seats eight) and living room with couches and seating designed for relaxation. The style is elegant, yet Casa Bella still has a down home comfort feel. It is imbued with an atmosphere of color, light, openness, and beauty. This is a truly wonderful house to escape to!

The housekeeper cares for Casa Bella Monday-Friday: makes the beds, cleans the bathrooms and maintains the casa. Her devoted attention to the tile floors keeps them fresh and looking like works of art! The house is also child-friendly, with baby changing tables, baby gates, and high chairs.
