"My wife and I stayed in Catherine's home for two and a half months while we explored and volunteered in Guatemala. It was incredible. The location of the home is about ten minutes outside the city of Antigua in a very small town called Cuidad Vieja. The small town is much quieter, cheaper and less polluted then Antigua. The property sits in fields of coffee and avocado trees where my wife and I along with Catherine's two dogs explored for up to two hours a day. You can see volcanoes from your bedroom balcony. There are horses on the property. Beautiful gardens. We plan on having large family gatherings here in the future if this property is still available.
If you are tired of being in a city and want to get away to relax go to Catherine's home. Don't waste your time paying for hotels in Antigua. You'll forget about all the things in life that you think are so important and start appreciating all the incredible nature on this Earth with the ones you love. That's what its like being at Catherine's house."

"My wife and I stayed at Becky's apartment during a week of language school in early March; this well-furnished and comfortable apartment was a short walk from the market and no more than 20 minutes from the far side of Antigua. We loved the quiet, the views of Agua and the upper level patio where we spent every moment we could. Leonor, the housekeeper, was attentive and went out of her way to make sure that we had clothes for her to wash. Can think of only 2 negatives: the stairs without railing might be tough for someone with bad knees or hips, and a bar of soap in the shower would have been a nice touch. We would certainly consider staying in this apartment again if back in Antigua."

"Our stay in Casa del Sol was for 9 weeks, including Semana Santa, although we travelled around Guatemela for short jaunts too. The house is very comfortable and has everything you need while fitting so beautifully into the colonial ambience of Antigua. I used the kitchen a lot and found it easy with everything I needed and a beautiful view of the garden, which was our favourite place.Fresh Guatemalan fruit is the best in the world!
The caretaker family and their 3 wonderful kids were so helpful but entirely respectful of our privacy. We do not speak spanish and they were very patient, supportive and helpful. The location of the house is ideal for sightseeing and still quiet at night.
Antigua is a wonderful place to visit and Casa del Sol is the perfect place to stay. Take time to wander and really get to know the city.The people of Guatemala were friendly and helpful and so nice. What a welcoming country to visit!"

#1 Family-Friendly, Luxurious Accommodation in Antigua, Guatemala!
"This is my 2nd time staying at one of Philippa's properties. Both places and experiences could not have been better. They surpassed my expectations. Our party included elderly people, young adults, and young children. The house was large enough that everyone had their own space and weren't cramped. The kitchen had all the necessities so we would just walk a few minutes to the shop and grab eggs, beans and tortillas to make breakfast. It was nice to have everyone together and not have to worry about paying a restaurant bill or deal with our kids getting bored at a restuarant. I felt extremely safe, as the property is gated. The amenities were incredible. The pool and volcano views are so picturesque! It was lovely to have a washing machine and dryer, especially with kids in the house! Pure bliss! I look forward to my next stay!!"
