Casa 'Maya-Antigua' is a spectacular home retreat in La Antigua, Guatemala, nestled between three volcanos and surrounding green hills. La Antigua, Guatemala, a 500 year old Spanish colonial town, was designated as a 'World Heritage Site' in 1978.
Antigua is an unforgettable destination, full of natural beauty, history and culture. This wonderful little city offers its visitors a memorable experience. Enjoy colonial architecture and history, the living Maya culture, museums, festivals, world class dining, sports, adventure activities and the town's famous 'Parque Central' (central park) only minutes away. Antigua is also the preferred gateway spot to the rest of Guatemala and other Central American destinations.
Casa Maya-Antigua provides the comfort of a home away from home. A magical Hacienda style retreat, this amazing villa offers a rejuvenating natural environment and first world comfort and sophistication.
In 2006 our family built Casa Maya-Antigua as a second home; as well as a place to welcome travelers from around the world. Our overall goal was to combine the local Spanish-Colonial architectural style with the best modern conveniences , functionality and light. The end result is a house which very harmoniusly fuses the best elements of an Antigua style traditional home with modern Mediterranean architectural elements. Additionally, the house was designed to make the garden and it's water features (the lap pool and the jacuzzi) central key elements of this living environment. The living-dining room space opens into the lovingly maintained garden through a large set of folding doors, bringing the exterior and the interior spaces together. Imaging seeing the Volcan De Agua in the background, framed by the folding doors - simply Spectacular!!!
Unlike traditional Antigua houses, this house offers expansive window systems which floods the interior spaces with natural light. Combined with the open corridor (which runs the length of all of the rooms), these large glass doors bring the beautiful shapes and colors of the adjacent garden areas into the interior spaces - blurring the line between the inside and the outside areas.
Be our guest and come experience nature, comfort tranquility and modernity. This stunning house offers a unique environment for an unforgettable vacation. Enjoy the lap pool, jacuzzi, lush gardens and terrace views of the surrounding volcanoes and the sloping greenbelt hills. Our property is just minutes away by car to the center of town. The perfect spot for enjoying the city of La Antigua and its surrounding 'Aldeas' (villages), without having to be too close to the noise of the surrounding streets.
The house is located inside a gated community with 24/7 security. Inside the community there are about 50 other houses, most of which feature beautifully kept gardens and a variety of nice architectural features. Walks around the wide cobble streets and the flat sidewalks (over 1-1/2 km loop) are a popular activity with home owners and guests alike. Another nice community feature are the communal gardens with ample sitting areas and water fountains.
We hope that this description, along with the photographs we have selected demonstrate how, 'Casa Maya-Antigua' can be the ideal setting for a great family vacation. A place which seamlessly incorporates the wonderful natural environment around La Antigua with the magical urban setting that this city is so well known for - all within the safety of a gated community. So, what are you waiting for? Come with us and let us show you and share with you our beautiful property; set in the midst of this beautiful corner of the world!!!
