Why Johny Douglas Aldana chose Jardines de San Bartolo

The house has the potential and the beauty to be shared, Loving the history and cultural variety of this country and specially san lucas and Antigua, I always wanted to build a home here and there, and when I first saw this place, I fell in love with it immediately. It is close to Guatemala City and easy to reach; the climate and the surroundings are perfect; it is set in a beautiful gated community close to Antigua; it is a very quiet and pleasant place, far enough from the bustle of the city, but close enough to enjoy the ever present activities in this cultural center.

Una casa preciosa

  • 5 of 5

La casa está muy cómoda y decorada. Johny es un excelente anfitrión y estuvo todo el tiempo muy pendiente de nosotros. Somos un grupo de 15 personas y estuvimos muy cómodos. La casa está muy bien ubicada, cerca de Antigua y es un excelente lugar para hospedarse y de ahí viajar a los distintos puntos de Guatemala, en nuestro caso visitamos el lago de Atitlán, Antigua, los pueblos cercanos, el Volcán de Pacaya y la ciudad de Guatemala. Toda la familia estuvo muy contenta y la convivencia en el área de sala y billar la disfrutamos mucho. Recomendamos mucho ir a Guatemala y hospedarse en esta casa.

Increíble! Es una Mansión

  • 5 of 5

Sin dudas, rentala!, 11 de 11 personas que compartimos la casa quedamos atónitos con la belleza y decoración, sus jardines son hermosos y cada rincón es acogedor. Jony es un excelente Host, y en compañía de las señoras que atienden y el mozo, sencillamente hacen que tu viaje sea espectacular!

La Mansión está ubicada en el camino de capital a Antigua, cerca de super y tiendas, a pocos kilómetros de Antigua, viaje corto en auto, en colonia bien protegida, es ideal como punto de partida para conocer muchos lugares, como Atitlan, chichicastenango, Monterroso, antigua y la capital!

Los desayunos y cenas que nos prepararon, fueron sencillamente lo mejor que probamos en nuestra visita!

Had an amazing birthday party

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the door and the complementary bottle of wine, we explored this amazing house. It is absolutely gorgeous and after traveling in Guate for 4 weeks the hot water with high pressure and clean cloro pool we could not felt

More welcome, it was such a change. The location is literally as close as you can get to down town without paying the boutique hotel pricing we drove and were at center in 8 minutes. What a great spot the pool is lovely Surrounded by all this beautiful garden We highly recommend this chateaux and we will be using it every time we travel through /guate which is at least once a year. Thanks for the hospitality john !! Oh and the staff is great the house helper even finished my load of laundry and folded it and had it waiting on the table. I am a chef and cooked breakfast and dinner with ease int his modern brand new kitchen with all the fixins. The refrigerator is large and cold and you just can beat it. The silence in the night was welcomed as well after the travels and having dogs, buses and Gallos roaring all night everywhere else in Guate, we welcomed our friends to this house while we had my birthday party in here. J did a great job with this house. He even decorated the gardens to have a pool birthday party it was really amazing ,We Had such a blast. After staying a whole week in this house , J recommended us to book his house in the beach which was amazing too, what a way to spend my birthday's vacations booking J's properties ! We have no regrets at all! Thank you J and God bless you!

La Aurora Airport
Car: not necessary

You can enjoy the local culture while walking and visiting either San lucas or Antigua´s colonial structures, museums, restaurants, Indian villages and markets, etc. The rest of Guatemala is also a surprising place to visit with many other tourist attractions, such as Lake Atitlan, Chichicastenango, the Pacific Coast, Tikal, Copan (in nearby Honduras), etc.

You can visit other cities or colonial and Mayan contemporary villages and archaeological sites, including specialty tours to any site, city, village or bird-watching tours. Visiting Guatemala and its many little villages could be an experience you will never forget. Let us help you in whatever you might need help with.
