About Sam Cave
We are a retired couple from Minnesota.
Sam Cave purchased this House in 2007
Why Sam Cave chose Ermita Santa Lucia
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Comfortable and charming
Very peaceful and felt very safe. What a relaxing atmosphere! The kitchen was very thoughtfully stocked with all of the utensils necessary to cook at home comfortably. Internet was reliable and had good speed.
Location is ideal. Close to shopping and close enough to the central plaza, but secluded enough to feel exclusive and very peaceful and relaxing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return again.
Everything was better then expected. Thanks.
Was a wonderful place to stay. Thanks.
Comfortable place close to everything
Ermita Santa Lucia is one of the best gated communities in Antigua. It is very close to everything and very safe. Sam's house is standard and clean and comes with everything that you might need. All of us slept comfortably and enjoyed the garden area and upstairs patio. Sunrises and sunsets over the volcanoes is the highlight and you can see all of it from Sam's house.
We did have a problem with the hot water, which is why I am giving four out of five stars. Sam was quick to respond, but none of us got a shower on one of the days of our stay. He took responsibility and apologized. He is a very nice man.
There was also supposed to be a cleaning service during our stay which also did not happen.
Overall a great place to stay! We would recommend it to anyone.
Keeping on my list for future visits!!
What a beautiful home to spend a relaxing week! The home was spacious and had plenty of room for our teenage sons to have their own rooms while allowing my husband and me to enjoy the upper level. The open courtyard was covered with gorgeous flowers and humming birds were frequent visitors. Each morning my husband and I would enjoy the view of Volcano Aqua while sipping coffee, reading and journaling. What a great way to start the day!
This home is in a secure gated community and conveniently located within Anitgua. It is within walking distance of everything!
The only negative was the mosquitos, but once you turn on the fans and start the air circulating, they're less noticeable!
Great property in convenient location
This is a beautiful, well furnished, spacious house in a very secure area within walking distance to the grocery store, language schools, and the Central Plaza.
This is a beautiful house. The pictures, great as they are, still do not do it justice.
We felt very blessed to be able to stay here for a week and a bit. It is well furnished with very nice rooms. The view from the master bedroom of the mountain is phenomenal to wake up to, and we loved the beauty of the open air garden in the center of the house. I am very hopeful we will have the opportunity to stay here again. It is convenient to shopping and a comfortable walk to the central square. The community it is in is safe and well kept. I could not recommend it more highly.
