About Rene Constantino de Leon
I own a well stablished restaurant in Antigua. Grewup in Guatemala but lived in the US 33 years. Came back to Guatemala in 2003. I obtained my BS from University of Florida and worked for IBM, Marriott and PWC during my 25 year career. I love music, nature and the simple things in life.
Rene Constantino de Leon purchased this House in 2010
Why Rene Constantino de Leon chose Antigua Guatemala
Built two houses, I live in one and rent the other. Very comfortable and secure. Just 15 mins walk from central park and 10mins. to the shops and supermarket.
What makes this House unique
Beautiful wood work, skylights and unique design. Lots of plants and well decorated. Everything in the house is of the highest quality.
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
We rented the home for two week in April. It was perfect. The owner was kind and professional. He responded quickly when we had questions both before and during our stay. The home was quiet, safe and clean. The owner's dog was an incredibly sweet and friendly German Shepherd. I hope to return often!
We loved everything about this house. My two teenage daughters and I had a ton of space to spread out and loved reading on both the rooftop deck and on the patio space out front. The house is absolutely gorgeous inside, but not to the point that you feel like you can't relax or have to be careful just moving around. We were there for about four days during Semana Santa, so made full use of the kitchen for breakfasts, smoothies, and coffee. It was a 10-15 minute walk to the major touristy spots, but only about five minutes to be in "town" to grab a coffee, bite to eat, or a tuk-tuk. The family has already voted that should we have the opportunity to return to Antigua there's no need to look elsewhere.
Rene himself was a great host. He lives right next door so was always around to make sure everything was good but never in an intrusive way. He went out of his way to help us find drivers and know about some of the events going on in town.
Thank you for this nice review. I look forward to your next visit.
Just loved it!
We just stayed at the house for 3 weeks in February 2019. The house was very comfortable and felt very secure. The house is located within a gated community on the edge of town, The location was perfect as it was very convenient to walk to the grocery store, restaurants, language school (we come to Antigua to perfect our Spanish at the Ixchel Spanish Language school). We loved JD and miss him (JD is the owner's dog). Rene is the perfect host and arranged airport transportation of us. He even arranged transportation back and forth to his restaurant (Las Palmas). Las Palmas offers free Salsa dancing lessons on Wednesday and Thursday and we thoroughly enjoyed these. He is well connected and provided us with a list of phone numbers for taxis, tuk tuk drivers, medical, etc... Vilma will thoroughly clean the house twice and week and will wash and fold your clothes if you wish.
We had been in Guatemala and in Antigua many times before and this was certainly the best accommodation we lived in. We will be planning another stay for sure.

Thank you for the nice review. I really enjoyed your stay at the house and JD misses you very much (Today he is on strike refusing to eat ... jaja).
Really perfect location, security,amenities, tranquility!!
Much better than the photos indicate, this place is a fantastic, elegant, complete house. Great service, wonderful location and views. Superior in every way. Not one complaint.
Rene's place is even more beautiful and comfortable than the photos. It is also on a quiet street that is a short walk to some nice restaurants and the main part of town. The house stays cool at night and has a great view of the city and the surrounding mountains from the rooftop patio.
Beautiful home - Loved our Stay
We were in Antigua for 10 days and stayed at Rene's lovely home. The location and accommodations were great. We would love to return in the future. Thanks for everything.
Located in a quiet and secure residencial area, with full view of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. A short walk will get you to the supermarket, pharmacies and shops.
