About the property

Antigua Colonial masterpiece 4 bedrooms (all en-suite) 3 gardens modern luxury

This Colonial masterpiece is located 2 blocks from Antigua's Central Park. The property has been lovingly restored by the current owners with a well known local architect. Working in conjunction with the Municipality and the Conservatory of Antigua, the home was rebuilt to exacting standards, faithfully preserving all colonial features with old world grace and charm but unparalleled modern comfort. This property is now available for short term rental.

The main entrance through the original "Portón" brings you to the first of three gardens in which you will find the solar heated swimming pool. To the left are changing quarters with shower, toilet and and sauna. Surrounding the pool is ample space to enjoy large gatherings of friends and family. To the rear of the pool is a wall mounted fountain, and a staircase to the roof top terrazza that will give you extraordinary views of the city, and surrounding landmarks, such as the Volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango.

Entering the main house you encounter the first of two salons, with views of the pool and the second of the three gardens, into which visitors can be brought while preserving the private living area of the home. The grand salon adjoins the main dining room and library. With its large fireplace and vaulted ceiling it is the perfect setting for a before or after dinner cocktail, or to converse with guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern features but old world charm with its traditional cupola. There is a second dining room adjacent to the kitchen for breakfast and less formal meals.Gathered around the third and final garden, with its colonial fountain and traditional terrace, are the four bedrooms all with large en-suite private bathrooms with walk in closets, hardwood floors and fireplaces (master and first bedroom).

Each bedroom is configured to suit a family or guests who would like options to suit their needs. The master bedroom is spectacular, and focuses on the vaulted ceiling, and corner fireplace and sitting area. Off the master bedroom is the bath, with a standalone glass enclosed shower, bathtub and dual hand basins.

The home is ecologically friendly with all hot water and heated pool powered by solar panels. The home is staffed with full time housekeeper and guardian.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed at the property for a month. I had the chance to work and relax. The house had everything I could possibly need. It was amazing to find in so many antique pieces from India and the United Kingdom. A short walk to main square, night life, restaurants and all sorts of entertainment. The occasional coffee with a view of the fire volcano was amazing!

Perfect for our Families

  • 5 of 5

Given the option, I don't think my family (4 adults, three teenagers) would have ever left this hacienda. It's hard to describe the tranquility here and the posted photos don't accurately convey it. I've tried to add a few of my own images but they too are insufficient. The experience of watching the erupting Vulcan Fuego from the roof terrace was one of the peak experiences of our lives.

One of our group wanted a cook for the duration of our stay. In a food town like Antigua, I was resistant to the idea but I can't praise the cook and house-keeper enough for serving us. At our request, they made typical Guatemalan cuisine and we enjoyed pepian, hilachas, pulique and other wonderful morsels.

The other staff, particularly our driver, were very kind and attentive. The driver took us to Lake Atitlan through the back country (at our request) and we had a wonderful journey.

We intend to return soon and our visit will be timed to the availability of this property. Our only regret is that we did not stay long enough.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 women rented this house for a week-long vacation. The location is perfect. Two blocks from the square, and within walking distance of everything in Antigua. Safety was important to us, and we felt perfectly secure in this house. The maid and the guardian both did a wonderful job, and were helpful and courteous.

The pictures don't truly convey how beautiful this property is. The house is huge, with four bedrooms opening off the courtyard. Each bedroom is beautifully decorated and has it's own bathroom. There are two additional bathrooms near the kitchen and the pool. The property is spotlessly clean and completely private, and the double-glazed windows and shutters do a wonderful job of keeping out any noise from the street at night. The pool area is amazing, and includes a sauna as well. We had breakfast out by the pool every day and it could not have been more peaceful. We wish we didn't have to leave, and hope to return soon.

I can't add anything to the descriptions and praise of the previous reviewers. This is a magnificent house--beautiful and comfortable--in the very center of a wonderful town. The staff is very friendly and efficient. My family of seven stayed here during Christmas week, and we all agreed that is was a marvelous vacation. Stupendous!

This is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gem! A home away from home with the luxury of a 5-star hotel and the convenience of an awesome location in Antigua. Very helpful host - communicative, accommodating and hospitable. The perfect place for a writer or a poet. We had a great stay and would definitely come back!

Terrific Experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is as comfortable and beautiful as the pictures suggest. The staff was very helpful and polite. Being two blocks away from the town square made everything really easy to walk to.

I particularly enjoyed having breakfast and a great cup of coffee by the pool, or within view of the volcano. There were plenty of great restaurants and bars that could be found in and outside the center square. Sushi at Nokiate and a drink at Café No Sé were a part of my routine, and are just around the block from the house.

Gorgeous and Peaceful Hacienda

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I traveled to Antigua for Semana Santa and stayed at this lovely home for ten days. It was magical! Once you arrive and enter, welcomed by Aida and Miguel Angel, you are taken back to a time of luxurious colonial homes. We had seen the photos on VRBO and the hacienda's website but it is even better in person! Each bedroom is individually decorated and has an updated bathroom. A couple of them even have a fireplace. The bedrooms all open onto the outdoor hallway with enclosed gardens right out the doors. It has a lovely kitchen with everything you need to cook your own meals when going out to one of the fabulous restaurants in Antigua isn't on the agenda. We had several meals here and enjoyed them in the two dining rooms and outside, poolside, and on a rooftop patio. The pool is large and private since everything is enclosed behind the walls of the colonial style hacienda. As four women, we felt very safe the whole time here. Aida, the housekeeper was very helpful, kind, and kept the hacienda beautifully clean. She is a dear! And, Miguel Angel, the guardian always made us feel safe. He also is the gardener and the grounds are gorgeous! The location of the hacienda is close to the parque central and within walking distance of everything in the center of Antigua. We enjoyed our stay here so much and would love to return someday!
