About Alejandro Rayo

We are a small family of 3. Both my wife and I studied abroad in Europe and the US and have a degree in hotel and restaurant management. We came to Antigua 14 years ago to open a new restaurant. We planned on a 6 month stay and fell in love with the city. We are living here ever since. We enjoy travelling and eating well. This is reflected throughout the house in the many art pieces and antiques we have brought from different countries and in the hughe kitchen where we love to eat and entertain our guests.

When we designed the house we wanted to always look at green areas. We love the outdoors! So, no matter where you are in the house you will alwas have a look to our outside garden, our interior gardens, the volcanoes or the mountains. We absolutelly love to keep fresh flowers in the house!

Alejandro Rayo purchased this house in 2003

Why Alejandro Rayo chose Antigua Guatemala

We built this house in the most beautiful area of Antigua Guatemala because we wanted our children to grow up in a secure and healthy enviroment. We could not have found a better spot!!!

Renting our house has been a great experience. We have met people from all over the world and have also had the chance to visit them back. Very rewarding!!

What makes this house unique

The tranquility of the house, the smell of fresh baked cakes or the al fresco dining in the back porch of the house make us never want to leave the house... We are so sure that you will cherish your stay in our home for years to come!

We have one lady who come to the house daily. She cleans the house and can help in the kitchen. She is in the house Monday-Friday from 9 am to 5 pm. We pay her so you only need to give her a tip if you want upon your departure. A gardner comes in twice a week to do the garden. The cook has been working for us for the last 13 years and is a very reliable and shy person. She does comfort food style dishes. We usually prepare breakfast on our own.There is a dish washer. You do the grocery shopping and you can give her the market list and money for your vegetables and fruits. Linens and towels are provided. We provide some things upon your arrival to start with. Some fruit, yogurt, juice.

Our family truly enjoyed staying in this beautiful home. It was better than staying in a fancy hotel. It is close to everything. Beautifully decorated. The house had everything we needed. We even had maid service and she was just wonderful. The house is located in a safe gated community. I recommend staying here. The owner is awsome. He met us on the first day we arrived. There is no other place we would rather stay.

Guatemala City

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property during a recent working trip to Antigua. From the moment I contacted the owner I felt welcome, he was attentive and ready to help. The house is beautiful and very safe and met all my expectations. The housekeeper was so helpful and delightful, she even made breakfast for us.

After a long day at work or exploring Antigua, this is definitely a tranquil and peaceful home to relax in. I would recommend this to visitors from overseas and anyone who wishes to get away from the bustle of Guatemala City for the weekend. While I stayed here during a working visit, I would certainly recommend this to couples who want a romantic getaway and to families who need a little more space and convenience than a hotel.

Beautiful Antiqua Home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at this home first of April. It was a nice and secluded gated community but an easy walk to Hotel Santo Domingo and easy stroll to the rest of Antigua. The home was beautifully decorated and designed by a famous architect in Antigua but very comfortable space as well. Lots of outdoor areas to entertain. Julia who has worked for the family for years was great and we enjoyed seeing her every day. She went to the market with us one day and we picked out fresh vegetables and chicken of which she turned into a wonderful meal for us and our friends. I would stay here again! Owners are very gracious and helpful.

Beautifully Kept Home In Antigua

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this home early April of this year. It was beautifully designed by a famous architect well known in Antigua. The home was stylish but comfortable, has great outdoor spaces, a covered parking area, and is in a quiet and gated community. We were able to drive into town but a walk is certainly feasible as well. It was close to the Santo Domingo hotel so we had a chance to discover a different section of the town and had many meals in that beautiful hotel. Julia who works for the family was there every day and was very kind. We even went to the market with her and she cooked a traditional meal for us and 2 other friends. Had a great time and would recommend this home for 2 or more couples and certainly families as the yard is fenced, nice playground, childs room, etc.

An hour out of Guatemala City lies Antigua, the former capital. This small, inviting town is surrounded by three breathtaking volcanoes – Agua, Fuego and Acatenango. They provide a striking background to one of Guatemala’s most visited locations. Thousands of tourists, and locals, flock to Antigua to experience its relaxed and welcoming atmosphere.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Antigua has plenty to amuse both heart and mind. The center square is a common meeting place and the perfect location to people watch. Numerous benches hold wearied travelers, hard-working students or elderly Guatemalan men holding meaningless conversations. Lovers, children and tourists stop to stare at the ancient fountain in the center of the square.
