Antigua house description

This gorgeous modern home very centrally located in a secure gated compound is the perfect base for exploring all that Antigua has to offer. The breathtaking sunsets and volcano views from the terrace are priceless.

Location is everything, especially in and around Antigua, and this location can't be beat. The neighborhood of Espiritu Santo is tranquil and quiet, yet close enough to walk to everything that Antigua has to offer. The artisan and fruits and vegetable markets are only 2 blocks away. Walk to central park in 10 minutes or less, the grocery store in 5.

Although Antigua is generally safe, one can never be too cautious. Choosing a location inside a gated community with 24 hour security helps ensure your family or group's personal safety throughout your stay. Rest assured that the helpful security staff is always on guard, 24 hours a day.

This is our family home so it is fully equipped with all that you will need to enjoy a week, a month, or more. The large downstairs living area is tastefully decorated and boasts a cozy fireplace for those chilly winter nights, stylish and comfortable furniture, and a separate office nook with a desk for your laptop. Unlimited high speed DSL with WIFI is provided. Picture windows with beautiful wood accents illuminate the living space with loads of natural light, and open to the flower-filled garden and patio, with comfortable wicker outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ grill. The living area communicates with the large dine-in kitchen, fully equipped with all appliances and utensils, and a dining table for 8. Off the kitchen, you will find the pantry and laundry area as well as a small 4th bedroom where the full-time housekeeper can sleep if you ask her to spend the night for babysitting purposes. This bonus bedroom can also be used for a single guest.

The three spacious bedrooms are located upstairs. The vaulted ceilings, fireplace and king-sized bed make the enormous master suite a romantic and luxurious haven. The large in-suite bathroom boasts a full-sized bathtub, a rarity in Guatemala. But best of all, the master suite opens to a delightful terrace with amazing views of all three of Antigua's surrounding vocanoes. Sunsets from here are divine. It is the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine.

A second bedroom has two single beds, bunk beds which can be separated. A third bedroom has a queen bed and a futon sofa which also converts to another queen bed. The bed configuration can be rearranged to suit, and allows for two families with children to vacation together. Both bedrooms have plenty of natural light and closet space. Another large bathroom services these two bedrooms.

The gated community itself houses 10 town houses inhabited mostly by friendly ex-pats and families. Ours is one of two free-standing homes (not connected to another house). We are a family of four with two small children who spends many months of the year outside Antigua. The house is very well suited to families with children or groups, and really feels like a home. There are some children's books and toys available for guest use. The space outside the house but inside the gated compound is a great place for kids to play or ride bikes/ skateboards, etc (which we can also arrange to leave available).

It is a joy to vacation in a house with all the conveniences of home, but it might not feel like a vacation if you end up cooking and cleaning the whole time you are there. An incredible perk included with this house is our faithful and amazing full-time housekeeper, Sandra. She can spend the night to babysit up to 2 nights a week for a small additional fee. She will clean the house and do your laundry daily, go to the market to buy your fresh fruits and vegetables, and even cook you a meal if you wish. She is honest and genuine and everyone loves her. She makes the you feel at home and like you are really on vacation.

Enjoy the extensive selection of English-language channels including the premium movie channels on a large flat screen TV with DVD. Quoted prices include cable TV, electricity, water, phone and unlimited high-speed DSL with WIFI, and of course the full time housekeeper. There are no additional taxes, fees, or surcharges to surprise you.

A bilingual house manager will greet you to show you all features of the house and will be your contact to assist you throughout your stay. We can arrange your transport from the airport and any tours you might want to make in and around Antigua or throughout the country during your stay.
