About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Office, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)
There are three bedrooms, with the master suite taking up the whole second floor and the other two guest rooms on the ground floor in a separate wing. From the master bath you can watch Fuego erupting or the fireworks in the valley. There are terraces and seating on all four sides so you can sit in such or shade or take in different views depending on preference and time of day. A stepped fountain 'stream' with flowering plants and fish is in the central courtyard where you can sit out for meals or on the back terrace with umbrella.
The spacious gardens tended daily by the local gardener are filled with flowers you can cut to have in the house. Open lawns for children to play and endless walks through the countryside with the dogs just outside the gates.
Within the walled compound is one other home in addition to the guard/doorman and his wife who cleans the house three days a week (additional maid service can be arranged). The two bedrooms on the ground floor share a bathroom between them which also serves as the guest bathroom.
I just built a beautiful wood fired sauna that seats 8 people or two people can lie down on the long benches. When you step outside, there is a cold shower. We have been having sauna parties and have friends over to relax and then have supper together.
My four footed companions are Barley, an 11 year old German Shepherd and Karia a 5 year old German Shepherd both of whom are very gentle and well behaved and go on walks with me (and renters) throughout the countryside. Both quickly bond with adults and children alike and often ends up being the favorite of young visitors.
All year round one eats outside on the terraces by the cascading fountain. Downtown Antigua with its restaurants, sites and night life is only 12 minutes away by car. A four wheel drive mini-SUV is included in the rental for an additional $250 per month or $75 per week.
Please check the availability calendar before contacting me as my place is usually rented months in advance.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I am an artist and spend my winters in Guatemala and my summers in the Boston area.
Why the Owner Chose Sacatepequez, Guatemala:
This is simply the most beautiful place I had ever visited. The Mayan people have something beautiful in their spirits to match the beauty of the place. The climate was described by the Spanish who chose this as their capital as "primavera eterna" or eternal spring. The elevation means it is never hot and neither is it ever cold. Everything grows all year round and there is a profusion of wild flowers in the surrounding countryside as well as in my garden. You have to come here to believe it.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It is the tranquility and proximity to nature that restores my soul. I do wonderful creative work in this uplifting environment.
