Property description

Casa del Oasis is about a five minute walk to the Mercado, the artisan market and the main grocery store. 15 minutes to the center of town.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, at the end of a private gated drive. It is an easy walk to the park in the center of town, all the ruins and churches, as well as the many wonderful places to eat and shop.

There is a maid who comes three days a week to clean the house and wash linen as needed. If you need a maid to cook, shop for groceries, or wash laundry and iron, this can be arranged. You will need to pay her for her extra hours. Hourly rate is minimal.

The property offers secure off road parking for one car.

The house is laid out in the traditional Spanish colonial 'U' shape with an enclosed courtyard which includes a fountain, lovely plants, outside dining and seating areas.

There are two bedroom and three baths downstairs in the main part of the house. Directly across the courtyard is the servant's wing. There are two bedroom (one has twin bunk beds and bath), as well as full laundry area.

Upstairs is the master bedroom/bath, as well as an exit to the terrace with dining and relaxing areas, as well as a hot tub. There is also a trundle bed in the upstairs hall.

The bottom part of the 'U' contains the living room, dining room, kitchen and garage area. All furnishing are new or antiques. There is WIFI and cable TV.

The property also has a hot tub and several seating areas on the upstairs terrace and a small quiet garden to one side of the house that is a nice space to sit and read.

There is an extensive water purification system so you can drink the water straight out of the tap. There is also a cistern so when Antigua is out of water, you are not. There are also several levels of security.

Having rented houses in Antigua before buying this home, we stayed in some lovely places but they were either very noisy, had poor ventilation, lack of security, impure water, to far from town or just not comfortable. We have made this home as comfortable and convenient as we can for ourselves and our guests.

Airport pickup can be arranged. If you are staying for a month or more, we will provide airport pickup free of charge. We can also arrange groceries to be in the home when you arrive and a cook if you need one.

Hotel Soleil is close by and for about $10 a day you have pool access. There are also other hotels with pools that are available for a small fee.

When staying for a month or more, we will pay the first $75 a month of the electrical bill. Electricity is expensive here so we encourage renters to conserve.

Our house is located at the end of a private gated neighborhood of 14 homes. We have a small community garden and playground where kids can play or you can just sit and relax. There is a mix of Guatemalans and expats living in the neighborhood. All homes are nicer properties. Neighbors are friendly and welcoming.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: We live in rural Washington state on a small farm where we have raised and trained hunter and jumper horses for the past 20 years. Our farm is about 90 miles south of Seattle. After having vacationed in Antigua for three years, we decided that was where we wanted to spend part of the year once we retire. At present we can only make it down to Antigua a couple of times a year for short stays.

Why Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala:
After traveling around for several years we went to Antigua when a friend recommend the town to us; she said we would love it because of its history, ruins, (UNESCO site), fabulous restaurants, rural farming areas close by, the cosmopolitan feel to the town and of course the climate. She was right. On the third trip down we decided to buy this home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
There were several things we were looking for in a house and this house met those requirements: close in, formal courtyard, larger home in a quiet neighborhood. A plus to this house is that it has a water purification system, several levels of security and mosquito screens on all the bedroom windows.
