Our family highly recommends this lovely and stylish and well appointed rental. It accommodates a large family (6 people) very well and it is located within a short walk into the center of Antigua. Very safe and good neighborhood. The owners will take very good care of you.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a month and for a portion of that we were joined by another family. We were 4 adults and 4 kids under the age of 7. We instantly felt safe and at home and the kids loved their "Antigua house". The distance from the main part of town was excellent for providing us with a quiet location and was still close enough that we could walk in with the kids. They enjoyed the option of the tuk tuk ride home afterwards. All the onsite staff were really friendly and helpful and both our families loved the option of the gym use within the gated community. The view from the deck was a favourite part of our morning and the master bedroom was incredible. We had a few issues with general maintenance like one tub not holding water and one shower head didn't work and a few things like that. Some things were fixed right away and some things took up to a week. All in all we would recommend this to anyone and were so thankful for a great place to stay. It really made our trip a good one.

Great house for family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a weekend in Antigua (3 guests over 50 years old, 3 guests 25-30 years old). We were able to walk to/from the center of town and the house easily as well as able to take a taxi or tuk-tuk if we need to get somewhere quickly.

The house has plenty of bedrooms all on the lower level. There is plenty of sitting and lounge space. The master bedroom has a small living room in addition to the main living room/dining room upstairs and two hammock spaces. The house is nicely decorated and fully stocked with linens, towels, washer/dryer, and even some travel size bathroom products.

Great house for a quiet, relaxing vacation. The house is serene and located within a quiet, gated community. Note, quiet hours and security are enforced - not good for parties or loud guests

Fantastic home in great safe location

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this fabulous home for a long weekend to enjoy Antigua with visiting family.

From the outset Cindy handled all our needs & requests quickly, efficiently and professionally and took plenty of effort to make sure whatever we needed was taken care of.

On our arrival the team greeted us and showed us around the home answering our many questions about the home and the area. Cindy has done a great job seeing to it that this 5 star home provides everything (and more) that a visitor requires --- and the master suite is fantastic!!

An easy walk into town (even with children) or a quick tuk tuk ride took us to all the restaurants and tourist attractions, and every evening we were thrilled to get back to the house and relax in the hammocks or on the patio looking at the great volcano view.

The home is very spacious and exactly as pictured and was so fabulous that (a) we never wanted to leave and (b) we will certainly be returning.

Thanks Cindy and team for a very memorable trip.

Beautiful, spacious, and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

I decided to take my husband and mother-in-law to my homeland, Guatemala, for the first time. In doing this we took a 14 day trip all over the country along with the rest of my Guatemalan family and decided to stay for an evening in Antigua. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer! This home was spacious and luxurious. The kitchen was fully equipped and ready to seat a large group. I was greeted by the assistant who was friendly and available for us at all times. The wifi in the house works great and we loved that we had an easily accessible washer and dryer. Our favorite part of the home was the outstanding view from the terrace, a huge volcano. We would highly recommend this for a large family as I had my grandmother, mother, aunt, uncle, husband, mother-in-law, 15yr old daughter and her friend. It is also located within a highly secured part of Antigua with two separate security guard gates.

Owner's Response: The setup of my home is perfect to enjoy the great views, probably the only home in the all of Antigua with the living area with a full equipped kitchen, working kitchen separate and barbecue area with a bar fridge upstairs. With all of the bedrooms located in the same level, ideal for families. Leaving our home the same way when we were living there makes the house luxurious. We did not pack all of the nice things away like most places will do letting our home very attractive for Home Rentals, we believe our future guests will look after each item just like if it is theirs. Getting many inquiries, calendar is up to date at all times. La Casa Castilla Owner Home Leaving Made Easy
