Property description

Just five blocks from the Central Square (Parque Central), this beautifully decorated colonial style home is located in an authentic, friendly neighborhood, Residencial Hermita, and comes fully-equipped with all first-world amenities (broadband internet, cable/satellite TV) and the old world charms (open fireplaces, wooden ceiling beams, beautiful shared garden, courtyard and picturesque swimming pool). The home also comes with a housekeeper, who comes daily from Mon-Sat to clean & do your washing - for a slight additional charge - and will cook delicious meals for you and your family and friends during your stay.

Enjoy the heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in the beautiful and tranquil courtyard, surrounded by lush vegetation.

Imagine…a vacation home where you wake up every morning to a majestic volcano right outside your bedroom window. And inside, everywhere you look there is amazing local art and beautiful colonial architecture of exposed brick, rare aged wood, and wrought iron.??

Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage City, is the most visited city in Central America. It is centrally located in Guatemala making it easy to take short trips to other popular destinations like Lake Atitlan, Chichicastenango, the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and Tikal. Known as the "land of the eternal spring", Antigua has a humidity-free average temperature of 75 degrees all year round with cool comfortable evenings, so there is never a bad time to visit.

Availabilities for this beautiful colonial home can quickly become limited, so it is suggested you book early. When booking you may want to also consider booking a deep-sea fishing trip, golf outing, or a trip to Tikal or Lake Atitlan, we would be happy to help you with organizing this for you.

We offer free maid service as we know that during your vacation, the last thing you want to do is make your bed, clean the dishes and do the housework, so this service really turns your stay into a proper relaxing holiday.

We also offer a concierge and travel service, where we can help arrange your transportation needs throughout your stay with us.

For those of you ‘Chefs’ who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful cook, for an additional fee, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds. This, plus babysitting, if you wish to sample the multitude of restaurants in Antigua, can be easily arranged by our wonderful house manager, Paola,

We provide our guests with extensive notes on what to do, our favourite restaurants, our favourite places to visit, doctor's contacts etc...

Guest Access

You will have full access to the home - mi casa, es tu casa. You will have access to both the pool and hottub during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

We have our Manager, Paola, in Antigua, who is there to help you with any dinner reservations, or to tell our about our favorite places to visit. However, we will very much leave you to enjoy the privacy you deserve. If you want to meet fellow travelers, then hang out by the pool next door, which is shared with 4 other homes.

The Neighborhood

Located in a safe, secure and quiet gated community, it is only 5 blocks from the Parque Central (central square) and just 2 blocks from the main supermarket “The Bodegona” and the local market in Antigua to get all your fresh fruit, vegetables, flowers or local crafts.

Getting Around

Since Antigua is a fairly small city, you can walk throughout the city. Otherwise, we can arrange a taxi or Tuk Tuk to come pick you up from our property.

Upon booking a 5 night minimum stay, you receive a 1 free night at our property in Lake Atitlan!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: From Britain, but spent my entire adult life in Guatemala, working in the tourism industry. I am now living in the Twin Cities, and trained as an addiction counselor. Very much miss Guatemala, but Paola, our lovely House manager is onsite to help you with one of our rentals. Do give me a call.... I appreciate any opportunity to be able to talk about Guatemala...the land of eternal Spring.

Why the Owner Chose Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala:
Nestled between three dramatic volcanoes in Central America, is another of Antigua's hidden secrets - a luxurious, colonial vacation home worthy of the majestic setting in which it sits. The beauty and affordable luxury of this spectacular 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom two-story villa will enchant you. The home is perfect for you to explore the ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets of the world-famous city of Antigua.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Kids and adults alike can enjoy the shared solar-heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in a beautiful and tranquil courtyard - right next door. 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. The flower-filled private garden can be appreciated as you enjoy a delicious meal outside, or from the gentle swing of a hammock - don't forget to watch out for the rainbow hummingbirds! For those of you ‘Chefs' who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, including such luxuries as a Magimix and Juicer! However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful housekeeper, Dona Clara Luz, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds. This, plus babysitting, if you wish to sample the multitude of restaurants in Antigua, can be easily arranged by Paola, who is onsite. Dona Clara Luz comes for a couple of hours every day to clean and do the laundry, and is always very willing to help out with any small errands, like going to the market. You will certainly enjoy her great s
