About the property

1 Bedroom Studio Next To City Center

Comfortable, cozy and quiet studio located at the entrance of Antigua Guatemala. The villa is fully equipped and has fast wifi and cable tv, linens and towels. You will feel at home! The villa is part of a beautiful, exclusive condominium that has many green sitting areas to read a book or enjoy a coffee, tea or wine - including one right next to your villa. The condominium provides laundry services, and has a heated swimming pool. Transport to the city center is available by a personalized shuttle, but if you prefer to walk, getting you to the Parque Central takes less than ten minutes. It’s the perfect place for single travelers, couples and business travelers. Housekeeping services are included once a week.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ria and Carlos

Thank you for sharing lovely Villa Valentina with us. It's a gem. We have loved so many things about it: waking up and fixing coffee and tea; enjoying the tranquility, with just a few minutes walk into town; great-working WIFI. We're so impressed with the smart design that we're taken notes, for we're about to build a casita in San Miguel. You've done a nice job with colors and textures in decorating. BRAVO! Again, thank you.

Villa 66

  • 5 of 5

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.

It was a little paradise.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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!
