About Sam Cave

We are a retired couple from Minnesota.

Sam Cave purchased this house in 2007

Why Sam Cave chose Antigua

We chose to buy our winter home (winter in Minnesota)in Antigua because of the perfect weather. Antigua provides a great place to live. It is safe and has lots of amenities, yet provides easy access to the villages and other cities of Guatemala. Antigua provides a respite from the harsher conditions under which many Guatemalans live. We participate with and often act as dinner hosts to educational and mercy groups that come to Antigua before, after, or during their projects.

What makes this house unique

We love to take breakfast on the corridor beside the garden. We often have an evening meal or snack and glass of wine while watching Volcano Fuego spout off or watching the clouds passing Volcano Agua from our second floor patio.

Beautiful home, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house worked well for our family! The layout accommodated everyone with plenty of room. The house was clean and well cared for and the location felt safe. Property manager was available and attentive to our questions/concerns.

Picturesque inside and out!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 (mom, dad and 2 teenagers) have stayed at several other locations in Antigua, and this was by far the best AND the best value! The location on the west end of Antigua is handy to everything, especially the market, "grocery store" and bus station. All Antigua highlights are within walking distance. The times we stayed "at home," we found the volcano views stunning .... day and night! Be sure to lounge on the rooftop at night to see Fuego's lava spurt and flow! If traveling during the rainy season, we recommend bringing or buying bug spray. With the rain came mosquitos. We would have liked to have the house more open to take advantage of the fresh "eternal spring" air, but kept doors and windows closed, especially at night, to keep the bugs out. There are fans in each bedroom to help keep air circulating and bugs at bay. The house overall is so lovely, that the mosquitos were a small inconvenience. We would stay here again, rainy season or not!

very nice

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home and well stocked kitchen. Quiet and safe area, but need to walk on a very stinky, bus-filled street the last block to get to the home. Otherwise very nice.

Owner's Response: Yes, septima calle ( Calle el Espiritu Santo) is a bus route. That makes it very handy for catching a bus but somewhat smoky and smelly during rush hours. We generally walk on sexta calle one block north to avoid the bus traffic. It is shady and pleasant.

Great home and great experience.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at lots of home rentals and this was the best experience yet. The house was perfect. Everything we needed was there and Berta kept it clean and even offered us some advice about Antigua.

Antigua is the rest of the perfect experience. There are so many adventure opportunities and sites to see we plan to return for anther two weeks next year just to take it all in.

Look No Further in Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

Our family visited Guatemala for Christmas and spent four nights in this beautiful home for our stay in Antigua.

First of all, communication with the owner, Sam Cave, was great, and also with Lorena Yuc, who manages the home locally. This is a very safe location, a gated community, and it's just a 10-15 minute walk from the parque central. Antigua is a small city, so everything is walkable - or you can take tuk tuk.

The home has all you need for your stay, a well-equipped kitchen, TV, great wireless, comfortable beds, beautifully furnished with local textiles, and of course that incredible view of Acatenango from the upstairs patio. That view from the master bedroom each morning will stay with me forever. What a great place to sit and enjoy coffee and breakfast!

We would stay here again and highly recommend it.
