Why Eva Vanneste chose Guatemala

I bought this property in 2004 as my home. I recently moved back to the UK but didn’t want to sell the house as I visit regularly and like everyone here still love Antigua so started to rent it out as a vacation property.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is really close to the centre of Antigua and in walking distance to all the main sights, restaurants and night life. The house is elegantly decorated yet still extremely cozy and comfortable. The area is quiet, secure and relaxing. The house is very well equipped with all modern conveniences and you will feel at home right away. There is a housekeeper provided to do cleaning and laundry and access to English speaking assistance and travel planning services.

¡Que Amable! Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was well-appointed, clean, comfortable in this safe and quiet property. The housekeeper even did my laundry each week and cleaned up the apartment daily M-F. I truly felt like a local and off the grid.

Antigua Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Lovely as described. Great volcano views, from the second floor secure courtyard parking. Spacious, clean and well-equipped. A nice little ten minute walk through a pretty neighborhood to a busy street with a great ceviche joint right on the corner. We would rent this little gem again!

Great choice - a no brainer

  • 5 of 5

Rented this duplo apartment for the last two weeks while taking Spanish lessons at the Don Pedro School. Here are some of the reasons why I highly recommend this apartment:

- detailed and complete welcome package about the apartment, Antigua, and Guatemala

- secure parking space on the property included in the rental fee

- all the basics (hot water, eco water filter, WiFi, for example) work all the time

- responsive and efficient caretaker and cleaning lady

- close to the open market (5') and the town center (25') by foot

- lots of privacy

- cosy bedroom with a nice king size bed that comes with a hard and soft pillow

- an outdoor covered patio

Antigua convenience and ease

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights after arriving in our private shuttle direct from GUA. Antigua was a wonderful experience and the apartment was perfect for our stay. Loads of space to spread out and well equipped kitchen (although we mostly ate out). The bedroom was cool and quiet on the lower level. Walk to Central plaza in 10 minutes. Leonor did our laundry in house and our only regret was not learning Spanish before the journey.

cute and tranquil spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Becky's apartment, and it was everything we expected. The place was spotless and cozy, with fresh flowers when we arrived. All of the amenities promised were there, and we were completely set up to be independent. Waking up each day we enjoyed our coffee on the terrace and watched the birds in the garden. We had everything we needed, were super close to the center of Antigua as well as the local market and the artisan markets for shopping. Thanks Becky!

Great place to stay for Hubby and Me!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Antigua many times and we loved this little apartment! Usually we go with our whole family, which is 5 of us, but this time it was just me and my husband and actually I was there alone for several days before he arrived. The place was very quiet and not too far from everything and I felt very safe. The apartment has everything we needed and they provided us with a lovely fruit bowl upon arrival. The housekeep did all of our dishes and laundry daily, which was a nice bonus. The water was hot and the pressure was good, which a nice bonus in Antigua. Becky, her house manager and housekeeper were all wonderful and responsive to everything. They even had a wonder book of what to do and where to go that was helpful. We would stay there again or rent the larger house if our family went there together. I already miss Antigua...
