About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

You will find one of the best views of volcanoes Agua and Fuego in all of Antigua from this property. Built in 2007, this home has all the modern conveniences, but also the charm of a much older colonial home. Although it's a short walk to the center of Antigua, you will feel miles (and years!) away from the hustle and bustle in the beautiful courtyard garden, built around a fountain and bucaro. This designer home features furnishings from local artisans and around the world.

The gardener and housekeeper both come in twice a week. The housekeeper's husband speaks excellent English and has worked in the hospitality industry in Antigua. He will stop by periodically to offer assistance. Trinidad is available to cook for you, but those arrangements would be made privately with her.

The house is kid-friendly, but not child-proof! It does contain some valuable art and furnishings.

Antigua Trip 2018

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely beautiful! From the moment we arrived and turned on the lights, we realized we were in a very special place. The volcano views from the patio were amazing. Especially loved the courtyard area and the sofa and fountain. We walked all over Antigua from this home base and felt very secure. Thank you!

Beautiful house, excellent value

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property, private courtyard with flowers and fountain, upper level deck with excellent views. Well furnished (it really would sleep 10 comfortably) and tastefully decorated (I believe the owner is in the design business). Located in a new gate guarded subdivision with a colonial feel (cobblestone streets, etc) but still convenient to the city center (about a mile on foot, minutes by car). All that and a great bargain too.

My stay here was for christmas and it was wonderful! Beds extremely comfortable, beautiful terrace looking over volcanoes, hot showers and beautiful courtyard. There were even hats and umbrellas to use if we needed. Pamela, we loved our stay! Cannot speak higher of this property.

Where do you live?

A true "home" base in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

Four of us just finished our stay in Castilla Belen #12 and had a wonderful time. This is an very well decorated and provisioned house which offers the feel of staying in the comfort of one's home vs. a rental property. The house is about a fifteen minute walk from the central park in Antigua, so the location is a quiet oasis yet is close to the sites and sounds of the "city". Tuk Tuk and Taxi rides are easily available to and from, should one tire of walking. The upstairs patio offers incredible views of surrounding volcanos and is a great place to see the sun rise and set. The kitchen is totally equipped with plenty of space for several people to help with the cooking. We also found the bedrooms and rest of the house to be most accommodating. Amenities like Wi-fi, Television, etc.. all good.

Top this all off with excellent communication from the owner and helpful on site staff (gate attendants, property manager) and Castilla Belen #12 is one great place to stay.

We hope to return.
