American family who has been living in Antigua for the past 18 years. Our children are ages 16,14, and 12 so we are well equipped for family activities. We hope that you love our home as much as we do.
Owner purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Owner chose Antigua Guatemala
Our home is located in a private neighborhood called La Escalonia which is located 5 blocks south of the Parque Central.
What makes this Villa unique
While still centrally located, we have a nice size property that is about 1/2 acre with a beautiful garden and pool area. The house and entertainment areas have a wonderful flow and cover approximately 10,000 square feet.

Sports & Adventure Activities
Gorgeous and supremely comfortable!
Super positive experience booking and communicating with the owner. She is an absolute professional and very thoughtful and helpful. We stayed 7 nights with a group of 10 people. Everyone on our trip would rate the house with a perfect review. Beds, amenities, and neighborhood are perfect to enjoy Antigua and for a base to see other parts of Guatemala. BTW - Guatemala is MAJESTIC! My favorite part of the House: the outdoor fireplace and living room.
I must reiterate what I originally read about this place. Pictures fall short. AWESOME.
Having spent Thanksgiving with family at this home, I must commend the owners on the outstanding grounds, the exquisite decoration and above all, the home-experience-feeling that the buildings emanates.
Our kids, my guest, my wife & I are ever so grateful to Tere and Ricardo who were extremely helpful in all matters.
Ellen, Thank you much.
An ideal home for visiting Antigua and surrounding locations - greatly exceeded expectations!
My family (my wife and I and five adult children) rented this GREAT home from Christmas through New Year's. It truly is an amazingly beautiful home in a perfect location (in a gated and safe community very close to the central square in Antigua with easy walking distance throughout the whole town). The pictures don't do it justice as this is probably the nicest VRBO home that we have ever rented. It is a very large home beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We took advantage of the ping pong table often and the many board and card games available in the home as well. The home also has a nice pool and hot tub. Our family, which likes to stay busy with adventurous activities, used the home as a base for visiting Antigua and surrounding locations. There are many ways to stay busy including volcano hikes (Pacaya and Acatenango), mountain biking, day trips (or longer) to Lake Atitlan, golf at La Reunion, coffee plantation tours, just hanging out in Antigua and much more. The owners are very responsive and helpful offering many traveling tips and recommendations for guides/outfitters. I would advise not renting a car - it is not necessary with plenty of transportation alternatives. The home comes with a housekeeper who made breakfast for us a couple of times and a groundskeeper who kept the landscape very beautiful. I can't think of a better home to rent in Antigua.
Perfect house and perfect Location!
We rented this house for 7 adults and 2 kids and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house is beautiful and well appointed. There are so many different areas to eat in and sit in that everyone could have some quiet time or privacy when they wanted. The grounds are gorgeous and the hot to was a big plus! Ellen was pleasure to work with- even taking one of us to the bodega to get groceries on arrival. The location as perfect- just a short walk to the center of town. If i'm ever lucky enough to be back in Antigua would definitely stay here again.
Elegant private villa in the center of Antigua is the back drop for a fun filled family vacation
My family of 8 just returned from a phenomenal two-week vacation in Guatemala. The week of New Years was at this beautiful villa. It was the perfect setting and base for family adventures and memorable family time. The home is private and safe, being walled and within a gated community. It is only a few blocks walk to Parque Central, close, convenient, but quiet. All slept well, even on New Years Eve with the city exploding with a barrage of fireworks.
The house is appointed to high-end North American standards and the kitchen could be home to a New York City chef. Beautifully decorated and with many gathering areas all family members found personal space and sleeping space. The beds are very comfortable and the linens are rich. The house is set up for people to enjoy one another. My two teens and four young adults gathered nightly around the outside fireplace sharing stories and talking about the day activities. Killer ping-pong games took place as well as lengthy soaks in the hot tub during the cool Antigua evenings.
Tere, the maid, is a lovely woman, ready with a smile, and a positive addition to the vacation experience. How wonderful is to return “home” after a day’s adventure to have the kitchen cleaned up, the beds made and the laundry done!!
Ellen is wonderful to deal with. Her correspondence is detailed and super prompt. She was very helpful with securing transportation to the airport as well as locating a local driver. I made great use of her expansive knowledge of the area restaurants. Ellen’s kind and honest nature was apparent in all her communications. She is an owner that is gracious and extends herself to ensure a great stay for the guests.
Other reviewers have detailed the splendid beauty of the home and I couldn’t agree more. It is well appointed for a luxurious stay where family and friends can share special memory making moments. The location, so very close to city central, but removed enough for a quiet peace to exist, is perfect for enjoying the city. My family treasured our time in your warm and inviting home-Thank you Ellen
We've a very nice moments with the whole family, all the house is comfortable and beautiful the area is very quiet and the view of the water Volcano impressive, is a beautiful place.
