Excellent stay!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property and staff. We had a comfortable stay. Expect to call a taxi as this property is in the outskirts of the city. Once in the city Q15 tuktuk will take you back. Everyone was very helpful during our stay. Magdalena cooked meals for us at a reasonable price of Q150 per meal, you have to provide additional money for the ingredients that she will go shopping for. The house is huge with breathtaking views.

A spectacular home! A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a large, beautiful, comfortable home for your friends or family right outside of Antigua, stop here. This was probably the most beautiful home away from home we have ever rented. We were a family of 11, including young children, parents, and grandparents, and we all just fell in love with the house from the moment we arrived. The art work in the home--photography by the owner, a professional, ceramics by Guatemalan artists, wonderful old and new craft pieces--surrounded us with Guatemalan life and beauty, yet our children/grandchildren felt free to roam, taking care but never having to "tip toe" around the art. The adults could easily walk to the center of Antigua, and the kids rode the 10 minutes with other adults in tuk tuks or cabs. Antigua itself is a very special old town, fun for shopping and great eating, and lots of walking. We hired a local cook for some dinners, and bought food for our breakfast. The house and garden staff are wonderful and helpful. Weather was perfect every day, not too hot, but still warm enough for the dip in the pool and hot tub were ideal by the end of the afternoon. In short, if you are considering Guatemala for vacation, go to Antigua and rent this fabulous villa!

Lovely stay at an amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property -- it is an incredible combination of luxury accommodation and a museum-like setting. All the rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the artwork is stunning. The gardens are lovely, full of flowers, and a relaxing place to spend time. The pre-teen and teen kids had a great time in the pool and hot tub, and used the basketball area as well. We definitely would love to stay here again!

Amazing home

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for my extended family stay while we were there for a wedding. The place has plenty of space for 4 separate families to all have their own private space as well as having numerous large gathering areas which can accommodate everyone. The landscaping was in great condition and everything was taken care of daily by the cleaners and groundskeepers. The house is very safe and should be strongly considered by any large groups looking to stay in the area. You will not be disappointed.

Fantastic home

  • 5 of 5

"Mikes house" was spectacular for our annual family vacation. 9 people aged 10 to 75 all enjoyed the awesome grounds including gorgeous flowers, fantastic swimming pool and even a basketball court for our 13 year old grandson. The home was accessorized with high class artwork, pottery and lots of greenery. There was a wonderful housekeeper who cooked us an authentic Guatemalan meal at our request. We contracted with Miguel for a chauffeur who was prompt and reliable for our various trips. Miguel even helped me when my debit card did not work to obtain quetzals. OUTSTANDING home!

Antigua Guatemala is a Unesco World Heritage Site. Founded on March 10, 1543 the Spanish conquistadors founded present-day Antigua, and again, it was named Santiago de los Caballeros. For more than 200 years it served as the seat of the military governor of the Spanish colony of Guatemala, a large region that included almost all of present-day Central America and the southernmost State of Mexico: Chiapas. In 1566 King Felipe II of Spain gave it the title of 'Muy Noble y Muy Leal' ('Very Noble and Very Loyal').

With its cobblestone streets, colonial churches, and many restaurants to choose from, Antigua Guatemala will enchant all of your senses.
