                    What a find! Muy comodos. Beautifully decorated. This house has everything. You can cook: microwave, toaster, blender, great fridge. You can watch subtitled movies to perfect your Spanish. You can relax in the garden, the outdoors brought inside. You can stay connected with wifi and the frijolito (phone) the house provides. Lenore came daily weekdays to clean and do laundry (we began saving our laundry thinking it frivilous for her to do it more than once a week.) Recommendations provided are plentiful: restaurants, etc. We used the transfer service for our entire stay, including weekenders to Chichi and Pana. The local manager was as close as our tablets. Pleased to see as we were leaving that the house is installing solar panels. Attention to recycling here. We were in Spanish school for three weeks and could walk to class in 20 minutes. Classes were so intense that our heads would have exploded had it not been for this refuge. Though it accommodates children, I could not see bringing toddlers to a house with so many beautiful glass vases, etc. Saw a doggie door, so maybe next time will take my perrito. Loved it so much that my husband and I are thinking of returning with another couple.

                    Recommended for: Age 55+, pet owners, girls getaway, sightseeing, romantic getaway, tourists without a car.

                    Owner response: Thanks so much Billie, we are so happy that you enjoyed it. I really hope you will come back to Antigua and the house.

                    Large, spacious, airy apartment with fabulous outdoor rooms to enjoy La Antigua's lovely climate. Easy to get around by 'tuk tuk" for Q20. Myriad of restaurants to choose from. Fine dining to casual and everything in between. Magnificent architecture. Locals are gentle and kind. The apartment is suitable for the disabled but La Antigua is not wheelchair friendly.

                    Antigua is a very charming place but the headline is this home. This home was just perfect for our stay and we were very impressed with how well it is maintained. The garden is a beautiful place to relax. Daily housekeeping was a plus. The home far exceeded our expectations and you can bet if we come back this way we will book it again. To Heidi and Becky, thanks for your hospitality and sharing your home with us. A+

                    Beautiful quiet private home. Great place to relax and entertain. Within walking distance to the Central Park. Kitchen is very well equipped for a rental. Housekeeper, Lenore is very efficient, accomodating, and friendly. Heidi the house manager is incredible and went above and beyond to allow us keep our dinner engagements with friends. Our two weeks went by too quickly and we really didn't want to leave. Would recommend this property to friends and family and will definately look to stay here again on our future return trips.

All my questions were answered prior to arriving and I was able to easliy communicate with the owner/property manager during our stay. Would definitely recommend this home to others!

                    I, along with my daughter and nephew, went to Guatemala to do service work and enjoy the wonderful city of Antigua. In years past when visiting the city, we did a homestay with local families to practice our spanish and have our meals provided. This year, I decided to rent a private home and cook my own meals and I'm so happy I did. From the pictures, I had anticipted that the home would be lovely and suitable for me and my family, and I was right. It was extremely comfortable, clean and a perfect place to return after a day of volunteering and traipsing around the city. The property is large and the patio area, which had a hammock and several spots to relax, was serene, lush and well maintained. The only real downside was that there were a fair amount of mosquitoes in the house when we first arrived. We swatted our fair share on the first two days and reduced the number significantly. We made sure to keep the doors shut to keep them out the remainder of our stay. The owner did have spray available, probably left behind from previous tenants, and mentioned having "coils" to burn, but we couldn't find them. That said, this issue was not a big deal and minor relative the the rest of the experience. Overall, we were very satisfied with this home and would defintely consider returning here again, if and when we come back in the future.

                    Had a delightful time at this Antigua home. Plenty of room for the 3 of us. Could have had many more. There is a great deal of room in this home, yet it still feels cozy. Wifi worked well. It is all one level which worked very well for my mother who has trouble with stairs. Wonderful garden and the home is very well kept. Garden is very private and essentially part of the house. I felt very safe here with gate to street well secured as well as house gate. Having never been to Latin america before, I was not use to the fact that the garden is part of the house. This is the feel of this home as well, yet it is nice that you can close off the garden if desired. This was helpful since we stayed during the rainy season and needed to close out the mosquitos. The plug ins worked well to keep them out of the house. WE had friends that rented a house that required walking thru the garden to get to other parts of the house. They found it impossible to avoid mosquitos. In addition, their house did not allow them to hear their children in the other rooms. however, in this home all of the house is connected and I did not feel isolated from the rest of the family, (yet we still had ample privacy. ) The house if beautiful, but an added gem is the delightful staff. The house manager, Heidi, was incredibly helpful. She took care of every question regarding the house. In addition, she recommended taxi/tuk tuk services and restaurants, and checked in with us regularly. Incredibly helpful, but not a all intrusive. The highlight of our trip was related to the great service provided by the driving service Heidi had arranged to pick us up at the airport. This team of professionals actually arranged to take us to several key places in Guatemala. Providing safe, and reliable travel with interesting and helpful information. Took us to the mountains, beach etc. When they dropped us off at the airport I felt as if I was saying goodbye to family. All of our friends were wanting to use the great service of Carlos, our guatemalan guide The only negative was that there was a washing machine but no dryer. However, the housekeeper, Leonora did much of the laundry. Although I don't really consider myself "green", I respect the fact that the owner is environmentally conscious. Likewise there is not dishwasher, but any dishes we had not washed, leonora took care of promptly. Nice neighborhood. Everyone friendly. Stayed here for much cheaper than hotel, with much more room.

                    This home is private and sits on the periphery of town. It is a clean and comfortable home with 2 full bathrooms which makes it ideal for a family of 4 or 5. The water pressure is great, the bed mattress is firm in the master bedroom and did not please me. However, the home is well equipped with utensils, pots & pans and pretty much anything you'd expect in your own home. The decor is modern/eclectic with rustic touches. My only wish is that the home were closer to the town center because it is about a 15 minute brisk walk to get there. However, the size of the home is amazing with a large terrace area that includes a hammock and various seating areas. When you step outside you have a stunning view of the volcano. The house sits on a private shared lot with a long gravel driveway that is lit by motion detectors at night. To enter the home you must enter a green gate walk this driveway and then open a 2nd gated entrance into the property. It is very secure. If you plan on going to Antigua to enjoy a combination of lazy & adventure days I highly recommend this property. When you arrive from a day of shopping or sightseeing you can melt into the soft sectional sofa and watch movies or cable TV in English. The kitchen is ample and can fit 3 people comfortably cooking. Natural light is ample and lovely. The lady that cleans is very nice and is happy to help out in an way possible. I've been to Antigua many times and this is the first I rented a home. It was nice to have a spacious place. The owner provides contact info for a massage therapist to come see you. It is not a hotel but if you are open to cooking and feeling like this is a 2nd home you'll be delighted. Enjoy!

                    We stayed in this charming 2 bedroom apt/house for 4 nights. The house is located 10 mn walk from the wonderful central market and grocery stores, and a 20mn walk to the central park or the la Merced church. We liked this place very much as it was very relaxing. We had stayed for about 1 month In Another gated community with lots of neighbors open space, pool, wonderful view of Agua volcanoe. We liked this private apt very much, but we also liked the friendships of neighbors, and foreigners we met in the Arcadia place. The apt comes with a cleaning lady, a very sour person who needed to be told What was needed to do, a bit strange. In the other place we payed for a cleaning person, happy and helpful and knowing what was needed to be done int the rented apt

                  Why the Owner Chose Antigua:
                  I bought this property in 2002 as my home. I recently moved back to the UK but didn’t want to sell the house as I visit regularly and like everyone here still love Antigua so started to rent it out as a vacation property.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The property is really close to the centre of Antigua and in walking distance to all the main sights, restaurants and night life. The house is elegantly decorated yet still extremely cozy and comfortable. The area is quiet, secure and relaxing. The house is very well equipped with all modern conveniences and you will feel at home right away. There is a housekeeper provided to do cleaning and laundry and access to English speaking assistance and travel planning services.
