Property description

This is a house where hummingbirds abound- thus, its name 'Casa de los colibrís'.
Our private vacation home is not just another rental property. It is a comfortable (2900sq ft) and completely furnished home recently built in traditional colonial style with a courtyard and a water fountain. From a lanai (pergola with comfortable chairs and a dining table for 6) you can enjoy our private garden with many flowers, orchids, coffee trees and many different species of birds. It is located in a area with year-round temperatures averaging 70f degrees (about 20c) in a quiet and pleasant gated community that was built in a former coffee plantation. It features cobbled streets and other beautiful homes, surrounded by a stunning view of mountains and volcanoes, forests and coffee trees.
The house is a one-story home with spaces designed for comfort and enjoyment. It is decorated in the local Guatemalan style with beautiful furniture, including colonial and pre-Hispanic objects, included in the rate is daily housekeeping and a gardener who takes care of the outdoors. Antigua is a UNESCO World Heritage site and a colonial paradise.
The house is located in the outskirts of the city, only about 1.5 miles (2 km) from the main plaza. While walking in Antigua or the near-by Mayan villages you can enjoy the local cultures, colorful dresses and handicrafts and you can listen to a wide variety of Mayan languages.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: We are a senior couple who want to eventually retire to our home in Antigua, a place we love and cherish. We have been university professors for some time now. I have a PhD in History and a BA in Archeology, with studies in pre-Hispanic and colonial history, specialized in the history of colonial Antigua. My wife has a degree in literature and is an official English-Spanish translator. We live in Guatemala City, just a few miles from Antigua. Because we are so close, we are always available and ready to answer any questions and to help visitors have a pleasant vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Antigua:
Loving the history and cultural variety of this country and especially that of Antigua, we always wanted to build a home there, and when we first saw this place, we fell in love with it immediately. It is close to Guatemala City and easy to reach; the climate and the surroundings are perfect; it is set in a beautiful gated community close to Antigua; it is a very quiet and pleasant place, far enough from the bustle of the city, but close enough to enjoy the ever present activities in this cultural center.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
You can pay through PayPal using your own credit card o making a deposit in our USABank Account. We will make arrangements to pick you up at the airport, and transport you directly to our home in Antigua. As part of our service while you are in our home and an emergency does happen, we can call a modern and equipped ambulance (including a doctor) to assist you.
