"i went their on my own, and wanted to have a calm 11 days vacation looking at a nice view. I had that as The view was magnificent and i woke up everyday looking at the lake's beauty and hearing the musical bird sounds. just sitting at the dock and reading was a pleasure. and the owner Alicia made it so easy and safe to be there; a list was provided with all the numbers that i could need including a spanish school, massage, yoga teacher and some fun activities (kayaking/hiking .. etc) so i got my relaxation, my "me time" but i also had super fun with kayaking and hiking a volcano. add to that meeting amazing people you can only think they came out of a Paulo Coelho novel. i can go on and on about the lake. p.s. i also learned how to live in peace with the spiders; they are harmless in there"Guest: Aisha Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: September 23, 2014View listing
"My wife and I rented this property for a week and both agree that it was worth every penny. The rooms and decor were great. The grounds and garden amazing. And the customer service all around from Deedle to Ramos and the girls who cleaned the house twice a week was nothing but professional. I would definitely return to this property if I find my self in Santa Cruz again. The view from outside our house of the two volcanoes was picture perfect!"Guest: Tony M.

"My family and I stayed for a week at Casa Bella in Antigua. The house is immaculately kept with beautiful gardens throughout and so much natural light. We were a family of four and had more than enough room to lounge together as well as privately. The rooftop deck off the master suite is the perfect setting for a full view of the agua volcano with your morning coffee. I would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone wanting to stay within walking distance to town who is looking for a home away from home. It is in a secure gated community near the artists markets, restaurants and more. Our only issue was having to leave. :)"Guest: Stacy Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 1, 2014View listing
