Imagine… a home where wherever you look there is spectacular local art and beautiful colonial architecture of exposed brick, rare-aged wood, and wrought iron.
Located in a safe, secure neighborhood, it is only 6 blocks from the Parque Central (central square) and just 2 blocks from the main supermarket “The Bodegona” and the local produce market in Antigua.
This beautiful colonial-style home is the perfect home-base from which you and your family and friends can explore the delights that this UNESCO Heritage Site offers.

'The pictures do not begin to do it justice: I have rented many vrbo properties around the world and this one certainly is among the best!- Trish, El Segundo, CA, 07/04/15
'We have to say everything was perfect-from the volcano views to the commodious rooms to the high speed internet access and cable TV. Of course Clara was the shining jewel as both housekeeper and, on occasion, cook. Don't hesitate to rent this property-the owner, the housekeeper and the community all add up to five stars! Kathy Rose and Hal Vogel' - kathy rose, 05/13/09
'Everthing worked like clock work from beginning to end. This was my 5th trip to Antigua - we have stayed in a lovely Posada, hotels, and home of a friend - this ranks right at the top with some pretty serious competition in regards to previous accomodations! Allison H., Atlantic Beach, FL, 03/26/2014

Beautifully and comfortably appointed, situated in a private, safe, and convenient part of town with multiple breathtaking, unobstructed views of Agua Volcano, and run like a luxury hotel by the lovely and amazing chef, Doña Clara.
