Antigua townhome description

Looking for a warm, comfortable, charming, safe and convenient place to call home while visiting magical Antigua, Guatemala? Look no further! Our fully-equipped home has all the conveniences of modern living, with the old world charm of Central America.

It is an ideal house for couples, families, groups of friends, volunteers at the many nonprofit organizations surrounding Antigua, those who are attending Spanish school, or anyone who simply wants a peaceful place to enjoy beautiful Guatemala.

The house is located within walking distance of everything in Antigua. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Central Park, dozens of restaurants (just 5 minutes to the famous Hotel Panza Verde), the best grocery store, the food and craft markets, a wonderful spa, a gym, and even a movie theater.

The exact location is 9th Calle Poniente between 5th Avenida Sur and Santa Lucia. It is a small, gated community of townhomes with two security men on duty 24-hours a day. Our cheerful home is located at the back of the property, across from the pool, and farthest from the cobblestone street so the noise of traffic is far away and you can sleep peacefully, waking to the cacophony of birds in the trees behind the house.

The house has everything you need to make your stay in Antigua comfortable and memorable. The colorful dishes, fabrics, and wall hangings bring Guatemala indoors, and locally-made rod-iron chandeliers in the upstairs rooms hang from 15 foot ceilings. The modern kitchen has a good selection of pots, pans, and utensils to make cooking easy, and you can stay connected to the rest of the world through the cable TV and desk top computer with fast and reliable high-speed interent access. The comfortable beds are fitted 100 percent cotton sheets and the bath towels and pool towels are 100 percent cotton. The full-sized washer and dryer will make vacation laundry a breeze. You'll also appreciate the screened windows (unusual in Antigua) that will keep the mosquitoes out so you can enjoy the great Antigua weather all year round.

Upon your arrival you will find the Welcome Book, complete with helpful information about restaurants, sites, activities, excursions, and tips about the house. Our American property manager lives in Antigua and is available to help you book tours and transportation, and answer other questions you may have.

So, enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee while sitting on the tiled patio watching your kids swim in the huge pool just in front of the house. Or stroll the grounds and look up to see the volcano Agua keeping a watchful eye on you, while you pick limes from the garden trees.

And at the end of a day spent in Antigua, you'll be happy to return to our quiet and peaceful community. You'll walk through the gates, be greeted by the security men who are always on duty, return to our lovely casita and feel instantly at home!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: We live in Washington, D.C. I run a nonprofit organization and my husband is the Dean of the University of Baltimore School of Law. We have two daughters, ages 14 and 11, who love our house in Guatemala!

              Why the Owner Chose Antigua:
              We fell in love with Antigua during the adoption of our youngest daughter from Guatemala in 2003. After returning for visits for a couple of years and staying in other people's houses, we decided to buy our own house because we always want a connection to Guatemala.

              The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
              Our house feels like home. It's very comfortable and welcoming and it takes no time to feel as if you belong there. It's proximity to central Antigua is perfect: you're close enough to walk to everything in 10 minutes but far enough away to escape the noise. You'll awake to birds chirping instead of the sound of cars bumping over cobblestone streets. It's also wonderful to have such easy access to the pool (which is hardly ever used) and the grassy open space. You can invite your friends over to swim or host a party in the grassy area in front of our house. The security men provide tables and chairs to seat a large group, at no extra cost. Make the most of your stay in this charming city and our welcoming house!
