A wonderful place in a quiet part of Antigua

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I visit Antigua often, having lived there many years ago. Antigua maintains its historical and cultural charm and is in many ways international, but over the years it has become busier. This was the first time we have stayed in Rene's home in the Calle del Burrito, and it was ideal... we actually stayed there twice within the past two weeks, the first time with family during their first visit to Guatemala, the second time by ourselves. We loved it both times. The house is totally modern in equipment, but built and furnished in the charming colonial style of Antigua. Rene has done a wonderful architectural and design job, making the house both beautiful and comfortable. We went from having a reunion luncheon with almost 20 people, to having two couples, to my wife and I being there by ourselves. It was perfect for everything. Rene lives next door, and he was accessible, responsive, extremely pleasant, informative, and fun to talk with. We appreciated having a few basics in the house when we arrived, so we could defer a trip to the local supermercado or Antigua's fascinating traditional market, both just a few blocks away. Being in a small gated community in a quiet and pleasant part of Antigua made our stay peaceful and secure. There's a lovely, beautifully planted small green area with a swing set directly across from the house that added to the charm. (We keep a car in Guatemala, so being in the gated community with safe parking on the street was a bonus.) Another bonus was J.D., the gentle and affectionate German Shepherd who lives on the property - he became part of our daily life, and we felt sad when we had to leave him behind. All in all, a perfect place to stay in Antigua - we'll be back.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed almost two weeks in this extremely comfortable and charming traditional Antigua casa. It is situated in a quiet, secure area of Antigua but within easy walking distance of all amenities. Rene is a perfect host with attention to detail including providing food for breakfast the first day. Vilma, the housekeeper, took care of all our additional needs. We looked forward to starting and ending our day on the rooftop patio. We really appreciated the calm, peaceful ambience of the casa - a reflection of the care ot its owner, Rene.

Stunning home is all you could ask for!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd time to Antigua but our 1st renting this home. So happy we did. It’s absolutely beautiful and Rene is a great host. He lives nearby but is completely unobtrusive. The house is super clean, there’s filtered water, a housekeeper that cleans and does laundry and it’s walking distance to all of the cool stuff in Antigua. It was pretty quiet too and we always felt safe. We would definitely rent this place again! Thanks Rene!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay and are already missing everything about our time here. Rene and Ms Vilma took such great care of us -- we wanted for absolutely nothing. The house is perfectly appointed and located -- a short stroll to all sites in town.

We will definitely stay again when we return to Antigua.

Wonderful home and host

  • 5 of 5

We loved Rene's home, his hospitality, it's location and JD, his dog. Everything was just as advertised. The food to get us started was such a nice touch. We only wished we had more time on this trip. Look forward to our return.
