ANTIGUA'S HIDDEN SECRET:

Enjoy a restful stay in our centrally-located, 4 bedroom magnificent, colonial-style, vacation home (sleeps up to 8). You will find that our splendid home offers surprising extras and special touches around every corner – It is more than worthy of its majestic setting! 

What sets this home apart is that you have 2 bedrooms with king-size beds and 2 rooms that have 2 single beds. Any of the rooms can be converted to Kings or Twins. The living room has a wonderful, cozy fireplace, as well as an en-suite bathroom and adjoining patio. From here you can absorb the magnificent volcanic views as your chose to either have a private yoga class, or relax and watch the sunset with a chilled glass of Chilean Chardonnay. The breathtaking views of the volcanoes speak for themselves!

All can enjoy the shared solar-heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in a beautiful and tranquil courtyard. The house itself offers: wireless internet, satellite TV, games and novels, local travel guides, and bicycles. You can rest your weary feet after a stimulating day of sightseeing, by relaxing in front of a roaring fire, surrounded by old wooden, antique beams, and all the comforts of home.

For those of you ‘Chefs’ who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen. However, feel free to ask us to be put in touch with a cook, who you pay directly who can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds.

We charge a small fee of USD40 per stay for our housekeeper to come to clean.

Imagine… a home where you wake up every morning to a majestic volcano right outside your bedroom window. And inside, everywhere 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 ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets are all easily accessible by foot.

SOME OF OUR GUEST COMMENTS:

'Immediately upon entering my breath was taken away by the beauty of the stone and wood and the magnificent artwork throughout.' Mendez, Seattle, Washington, 10/09/15

'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

'It was like a dream living in a castle, the interior decor was very unique. The balcony overlooking the plush tropical garden patio and the beautiful scenic view from our bedroom, viewing the volcano mountains was incredible. Helmut and Bernice Fraund ' - Bernice Fraund, 10/30/15

'Super clean, great location, and wonderful owner.' - Mike, 10/24/08

'it was the perfect place for us to begin our lives together as husband and wife. 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. This house has to be one of the best on VRBO. Many thanks to you & to Doña Clara for providing a 'dream home' for us to start our married life together.' - Alex & Amy Kass, Brooklyn, New York, 09/10/08

'This is a great house, quiet, safe, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and in a perfect location to walk to town and to the market. .
