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!!!

La Antigua, Guatemala, one of the first cities founded by the Spaniards in the new world, has not only survived the passage of time and the ravages of natural phenomena over the past 500 years, but it has re-emerged like a rising phoinix to shine in all it's beauty in the last 50 or so years!!! This is the background and the surrounding environment, which, above all else makes 'Casa Maya-Antigua' such a magical place to visit.
A living meuseum, steep in colonial Spanish history, and yet, possesor of an even more ancient past, associated with the Kaqchikel Maya people and beyond, La Antigua stands as an amazing combination of old traditions, sincretic cultural exchange, proud heritage, and an optimistic outward view toward the future.
We welcome you to fall in love with this small little city, which some have called 'the greatest little 'Pueblo' in the world. Although, not really a Town (since it was designated the seed of 'La Capitania General de Centro America' for several centuries) La Antigua is a place which manages to keep the a very intimate feel. Despite its monumental architecture, this is a very approchable and throughly walkable city. A place where you can spend a whole afternoon sitting in one of the benches at El Parke Central, people watching, while having an ice cream listening to the sounds of the municipal Marimba band. Full of tourist year round, shering the space with 'Los Panza Verdes' (as the local Antiguanos are often called, or, with the Native Mayas which come from the surrounding Aldeas, or, even from further out, to sell their wears, La Antigua pulsates with a mix of travelers from around the world looking for adventure and the human desire to meet other fellow travelers and locals alike. El Paque Cental is one of those unique, not often seen places, where a Backpacker can meet and strick-up a conversation with a Fortune 500 CEO, just as easily as, a Maya woman from the highlands can have an English exchange with a tourist as see tries to sell a beautiful Maya weaving...
Our home has been lovingly decorated with many of the beautiful arts and crafts, as well as, other artwork, often found in La Antigua. By doing this not only do we pay tribute to the amazing creativity and the fushion of styles found in this city, but we are also able to feast our senses in all of this manmade beauty.
We have also taken full advantage of the rich volcanic soil, the sun and the maild tropical wheater which surround our little Villa to create a natural garden surrounding that engages and satisfies the senses. This amazing profusion of beautiful plants and water features is another bonus of visiting La Antigua, Guatemala. Dubued, 'The Land of the Eternal Spring' because of its year round mild wheather / temperatures (64-80 degrees farenhith). Must places in the city are decorated with beautiful gardens featuring all kinds of colorful and exotic tropical plants and flowers.
Here, each season of the year has its charm: each street, monument, house, plaza, not to mention each 'Antigueno'have something to offer. A chance for the traveler to expirience and apreciate the many beautiful things this city and its people have to offer.
So it is with great enthusiasm that we invite you to come and explore this small bu amazing part of the world...
