  • Perfect house to get away from City Life

    "We spent 3 nights in this property and it was wonderful. The location was beautiful right in front of a lake with unobstructed view of the water and 2 volcanoes beyond. The night sky is blanketed with all the bright stars and moon. Fireflies are flying around at night in the front yard. There were 4 adults in our group and the house was just perfect size. Francesca was the main person we emailed and spoke to on the phone to set up the rental. We basically emailed her numerous times to ask numerous questions on all the topics we had a concern about and she answered them all promptly. Rene met us at the Pana van shuttle stop and placed us on a private boat to directly take us to the house. There is a private dock right in front of the house so you do not need to pull all your belongings with you from the short but tricky walk along the wooden walk way to Paxanax (public dock) boat stop. Once we arrived at the house's private dock Pascual was there to help up unload our belongings to the house and gave us a tour of the property. Pascual also purchased us a huge stack of wood to use on the sauna which we used two nights in a row. During our stay there were two long term renters on the small cottages behind us but we never heard any noise from them at all. We did meet one of the long term renters and she was amazingly friendly. We spent a lot of our time just relaxing on the balcony/patio laying on the hammock and patio chairs. We also spent a lot of our mornings just sitting on the private dock drinking locally grown and roasted Guatemalan coffee that we purchased from the restaurant in the village. That coffee was delicious! Thank you for the coffee maker and filter! :) We cooked most of our dinners in the Kitchen. We didn't do any excursions while we were there because we mainly wanted to just rest, relax and catch up with old friends. The bathroom is definitely a new experience for all of us because it is open to the outdoors. We found it hilarious that if someone is in the bathroom using it and the rest of us are in the balcony/patio that we could continue our conversation with the person in the bathroom included. The views from the upstairs loft bedroom are amazing to wake up to as well as the big day bed in the living room. If you plan to stay here make sure you purchase you food and supplies in Pana because they are the only one with a big grocery store. However, Pascual can do the grocery shopping for you. We will definitely visit again!!! We LOVED it."

  • Beyond our expectations!

    "This was the perfect place for a private family get-away! (Though we schemed the whole time about who we would bring next time to fill the place up!) Quiet, relaxing, well...........just incredible! We had not only the pool to ourselves, but shared the beach with very few as well. Enjoyed the badminton, grill, pool and the hammocks!! If we don't get to go back we'll be very disappointed but so thankful for this wonderful experience! We appreciated the excellent communication and instructions from the owner prior to our visit and the on-site staff was very pleasant and helpful!"

  • great location

    "My son and I roomed in the Don Pedro apartment for three weeks this last July. We found the location to be excellent; few blocks from the plaza but far enough from the center's noise. The staff, and especially David, the manager, made every effort to make our stay special and comfortable and provided us with extra kitchen gadgets since we did not want to eat out every night. (The kitchen is not fully equipped but you may ask to borrow what you need). They also provide their guests with airport shuttles and have a tour agency they can refer you to for travel around the country. My son's wonderful Spanish academy, Ixchel Spanish School, is located two-and a half blocks away and so are several little shops nearby where you can buy many edibles including fresh made tortillas. The security of the building complex made us feel secure throughout our stay and the apartment has a safe where to store valuables. We will gladly stay again at El Marques de Antigua when we return to Antigua."

  • Fantastic Getaway!

    "I stayed here for two nights with my friends for a birthday weekend and it was fantastic! Before the trip the owner Jeff did an excellent of providing me with all the info and things I needed to do before staying there. He was always willing to talk on the phone and replied to emails rapidly. Also the care taker Abelino and his family were extremely polite and helpful. Abelino was responsive and ready to help us at any moment. They cleaned the pool every morning at 8 and if we needed anything we could just ask. The house was fully equipped with kitchen utinsels, speakers, more than enough beds, AC at night, a beautiful view and close walk to the beach. Working wifi, showers, and Television. This is definitly a place I would stay again and recommend to others."
