Las Arcadas Condominiums is an oasis in Antigua - not in the thick of things, but close enough to walk to numerous restaurants, shops, crafts markets, grocery stores, Parque Central (Central Park), El Mercado (the market) and much more. Our neighbors include Guatemalans, visitors from around the globe, and ex-pats working on various projects and charities. Agua Volcano makes an awe-inspiring backdrop to this oasis.

Our Casita Rosita is an end unit, far from the noise of the street, and just steps away from the inviting swimming pools, large yard with flowering shrubs and mature fruit trees. It is situated so it gets lots of morning sunlight to take away the evening chill, but in the warm afternoons it is shaded. All of the windows have screens - not standard equipment in Guatemala.

We have pressurized water - an important amenity in Antigua, and uncommon most places - and potable water is provided. After a day of shopping, sightseeing, hiking and otherwise enjoying this beautiful and fascinating town, you'll be glad to return to our quiet, casual and comfortable casita.

The neighborhood is gated and there is a friendly guard on duty around-the-clock who can also help with things like hailing a tuk-tuk (a motor-scooter taxi) or setting up tables and chairs if you'd like to entertain poolside. Housekeeping can be arranged for you and the price is very reasonable.

Transportation from the airport is easily arranged (as well as other tours) and you will have an English speaking contact.

In addition to standard equipment such as a coffee maker and toaster, the condo is equipped with a blow dryer, iron, umbrella - all the things you need to make your stay comfortable.

Nuestra casa es su casa. Our house is your house. We love it and think you will, too.

About Robin Freeman

Guatemala and its people won our hearts as we traveled around the country and later as we fostered our daughter in Antigua during the process of adoption. A year or so after returning home with our daughter, we set up a non-profit selling goods made in Guatemala with proceeds benefiting Guatemalan charities, giving us another good reason to return to Guatemala often.

Robin Freeman purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Robin Freeman chose Guatemala

We love the beauty, vibrancy and cosmopolitan feel of Antigua and dreamed of having a home there but didn't connect with the places we saw with a real estate agent. Then, on a buying trip for the non-profit, an acquaintance from the US called out my name as I walked through Parque Central and invited me to her home at Las Arcadas. She had lived in Antigua two years but was moving and her townhouse was for sale. Her place and the neighborhood had such a comfortable feel, we knew we were 'home.' Two days later we met the former owner over coffee at Cafe Condessa, struck a deal and sealed it with a handshake.

What makes this townhome unique

We like to start off our mornings sipping coffee and tea on our deck, listening to the birds . . . but town beckons. We're always enthused to set off down the street to shop, meet up with old friends and new acquaintances, get a massage or just pass a little time in the park; but coming home to Casita Rosita is like a retreat from Antigua -- quiet and serene. Invariably we are reinvigorated to venture back out in the evening for dinner at one of the many superb restaurants, take in a lecture, movie or music, and to stroll the streets.

Great property and great location. It looked nice online but even better in person.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at Las Arcadas. The home had great character and was well suited to our needs. The home was also located near the central area of Antigua yet distant enough for a relaxing and quiet stay. The outdoor garden space beside the unit was also a plus. We'd be glad to return here in the future. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home.

Perfect house in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true gem. Located only a 15 minute walk from the center of the city, it offers everything a family would need to enjoy their time in Antigua. I would highly recommend this house as it will be on our list for our next trip.

Review of Casita Rosita

  • 5 of 5

Three of us (adults) had a most enjoyable stay in this comfortable, well equipped condo in a secure, quiet complex that is a 15 minute walk from the main square. The roof top terrace is beautiful with a spectacular view of the volcano. Good restaurants and shops are a short walk away, and the location is quite walkable to the main markets of Antigua. Beautiful garden areas and a nice pool. Good internet and tv. Certainly recommend this property and I would definitely return.

Fantastic getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really sweet apartment!! Excellent location, can walk to everything! Can't beat the view and the roof top patio is fantastic! This is an end unit near the pool. Perfect two bedroom apartment for a small family! Has everything you need! Swimming pool is a huge plus for the kids and the lawns are perfect for kicking a ball. This complex is quiet, safe, and the guards are very nice and helpful. We can't wait to visit again!

Suited all our needs!

  • 5 of 5

Totally agree with Melissa P on all aspects. We would highly recommend this suite for others - even met the neighbours and had a great time! We loved having the windows open and the breeze blowing through, it was so comfortable and nice to be able to put our feet up after a busy day. The location was PERFECT... far enough away from the busy-ness that it was quiet but close enough to the busy-ness that it was an easy walk. Robin and her manager were very accommodating and quite to respond to our questions.
