Our casita is super comfortable, charming, safe and a convenient place to call home while visiting magical Antigua, Guatemala. Our fully-equipped home has all the conveniences of modern living in the timelessness of old world Central America. It was also renovated in the last two years with all new bathrooms, new couch, fresh paint, and more! And new beds were purchased in May 2017.
It is an ideal house for couples, families, groups of friends, volunteers at the many nonprofit organizations surrounding Antigua, those who are attending Spanish school, or anyone who simply wants a peaceful place to enjoy beautiful Guatemala.
The house is located within walking distance of everything in Antigua. It's about a 10-15 minute walk to the Central Park, dozens of restaurants (just 5 minutes to the famous Hotel Panza Verde), the best grocery store, the food and craft markets, a wonderful spa, a gym, and even a movie theater.
The exact location is 9th Calle Poniente between 5th Avenida Sur and Santa Lucia. It is a small, gated community of townhomes with a security man on duty 24-hours a day. Our cheerful home is located at the back of the property, across from the pool, and farthest from the cobblestone street so the noise of traffic is far away and you can sleep peacefully, waking to the cacophony of birds in the trees behind the house.
The house has everything you need to make your stay in Antigua comfortable and memorable. The colorful dishes, fabrics, and wall hangings bring Guatemala indoors, and locally-made rod-iron chandeliers in the upstairs rooms hang from 15 foot ceilings. The modern kitchen has a good selection of pots, pans, and utensils to make cooking easy, and you can stay connected to the rest of the world through the cable TV and fast and reliable high-speed internet access. The comfortable beds are fitted with 100 percent cotton sheets and the bath towels and pool towels are 100 percent cotton. The full-sized washer and dryer will make vacation laundry a breeze. You'll also appreciate the screened windows (unusual in Antigua) that will keep the mosquitoes out so you can enjoy the great Antigua weather all year round. We also have pressurized water - a rarity in Antigua - so your showers will be powerful!
Upon your arrival you will find the Welcome Book, complete with helpful information about restaurants, sites, activities, excursions, and tips about the house. Our property manager lives in Antigua and our house keeper is also an excellent cook if you would like to hire her to cook you a typical Guatemalan meal.
So, enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of coffee while sitting on the tiled patio watching your kids swim in the huge pool just in front of the house. Or stroll the grounds and look up to see the volcano Agua keeping a watchful eye on you, while you pick limes from the garden trees.
And at the end of a day spent in Antigua, you'll be happy to return to our quiet and peaceful community. You'll walk through the gates, be greeted by the security men who are always on duty, return to our lovely casita and feel instantly at home!
