About Ria Heleen
I moved from the Netherlands to the wonderful country Guatemala in 1999 - never a dull day here! I am working in Guatemala City for the international conservation organization Rainforest Alliance, and decided to live in the beautiful town of Antigua, to escape a bit from busy city life. This is how I ended up buying this lovely place. But while the villa was built, I met my (now) husband and the plans to move into the villa changed, as we soon saw our family completed with our lovely daughter and two dogs - we just wouldn't fit. We live in a small town next door and it's easy for us to swing by if you need anything. My family and friends from the Netherlands stay at the villa when they come visit and I hope you will enjoy it as much as they do. I want the villa to be everything I personally wish for when renting such a property or going on vacation, so suggestions for improvements are always welcome and will be addressed whenever possible. Carlos and I really wish for you to enjoy Antigua and Guatemala for a reasonable price, and simply feel at home. We hope to welcome you soon.
Ria Heleen purchased this Studio in 2011
What makes this Studio unique
What I most love about the villa is its proximity to the city center of Antigua, combined with the comfort, quietness and beauty the place provides. The villa has all you may need, and the condominium has beautiful areas to sit down and relax or work. The heated pool and wine cellar provide additional options for relaxation.

Great Stay in Antigua
Beautiful property. Well appointed, comfortable, clean and convenient. Great little areas all around for reading and relaxing. Ria was a great host and went above and beyond to assist us.
I’ve had the pleasure of staying in different Villas on the property but this one will for ever stand out to me the most. The villa is fully equipped in everything you may need for your stay. Making your stay feel just like home. The owner Ria welcomed us with a lovely note at the villa providing us with a phone to be able to communicate out here
(best minor detail wish more ppl would do) and her husbands personal number In case we needed anything. Location is perfect and if needed the property has a free shuttle to drive you in and out of Antigua.
Thank you Ria and Carlos for allowing us to stay at your lovely home.
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to welcome you back some day in beautiful Antigua and our villa. Kind regards, Carlos and Ria
Safe & luxurious
Just confirming what most have said. Helpful hosts and appreciated the fruit etc in the pantry when I arrived and supplies for coffee in the morning.
It was a little paradise.
The music they played for hours, mainly on the weekends, was annoying at 11:00 at night, but other than that, we enjoyed out stay. The swimming pool, which was opened most days was glorious.
Thank you so much for taking the time to post a review, and it was great to have you. So glad you enjoyed the pool. In case it is covered (to save energy as it is a heated pool) you can ask the condo staff to open it, so the pool is accessible as you need. As for the background music in the gardens, the condo management would be pleased to turn off the music in your area if you so like, as I had let you know. Thank you again for visiting Guatemala and Antigua. Saludos, Ria
Perfect Place to Stay
From the personalized touches for our honeymoon, to the constant communication and answering of questions before and during the trip- this home was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay. The home was neat, clean and well stocked for our week. We felt very safe and appreciated the shuttle to and from the city! I highly recommend this home for your next trip to Antigua!
First class in every way
After a busy week of traveling in northern Guatemala, it was refreshing to meet the charming owner of this villa, Ria. She graciously made time to meet us at our hotel and drive us to the property, which is just beyond the perimeter of colonial Antiqua. The property is gorgeous. Absolutely first class. As described, the unit is part of a small, private complex; yet, it is quaint and intimate. The unit itself is comfortable and well appointed. The walk to and from town was convenient and it felt safe. I’d say it takes 15-20 minutes to get to the center with breaks to look in the shops and cafes along the way. A free shuttle service is provided as well (a pleasant surprise!). My girlfriend and I are experienced travelers - if we return to Antigua, we’ll try to stay here first. Thank you, Ria!
Thank you so much for your nice words Scott. It was such a pleasure to host you. I hope you two can come back! ~ Ria
