Overview

About the property

With 4 Bedrooms, 3 And A Half Bathrooms (a Bathroom Was Added A Couple Of Months

Experience the Mediterranean in Antigua. This house was built with a tri-level design. It has many nice features, including Spanish Colonial architecture throughout the house.

With 4 bedrooms, 3 and a half bathrooms , a Studio/Family-room with a fireplace with a sofa-bed, plus a formal Living-room area with fireplace, dining room, spacious kitchen, maid quarters, a terrace, a patio/garaje in the front

In a very secure area, close to restaurants and churches, It is very close to commercial area of Antigua. About 7 blocks from Central Park and just 3 blocks from Central Market.

I don't offer a car as it is within walking distance from anything you may need in Antigua.

I will help you with anything you may need during your stay in Antigua or with anything you may need when you visit Guatemala.

Within walking distance to anything you may need in Antigua or you can use a 'tuk-tuk' to get anywhere in the city for about $1.25 one way.

There are NOT many places inside the town Antigua that are vacation rentals. Most of the places if you read carefully are only one room rentals, Hotels or Hostels (price per person, per room or per bed)

I've owned this house since 2005. It has been completely renovated. Freshly painted. This house has good lighting and ventilation throughout the whole house, with lots of windows. I have another vacation rental next door.

I started building a lap pool which was scheduled to be in operation in November of this year, however we had an unusual winter this year which delayed the final construction. The rates will change once the pool is in operation.

Please see description and reviews.

About Carlos Santacruz

IT Systems Engineer. U.S. Citizen born in Guatemala. Have lived in U.S. since 1984 and on and off in Guatemala City since 2009. I have a business in Guatemala.

Carlos Santacruz purchased this house in 2005

Why Carlos Santacruz chose Guatemala

My dream is to retire in Antigua but unfortunately I can't right now. I hope to do this in the near future, but until then I visit as frequently as possible and enjoy Antigua.

What makes this house unique

This house is within walking distance from everything you need in Antigua. Is close enough to enjoy Antigua but far enough from downtown to avoid the crowds and noise of local traffic.

This property was exactly as described and the host, Carlos was outstanding. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everthing we needed and to answer questions for us. We had a most wonderful week in Antigua and when we come back, this house will be our first choice.

8 Airline friends studying Spanish❗

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this villa for one week with 7 friends. It was within walking distance of Antiqua Spanish school which we attended. Rooms were comfortable and we had the pleasure of enjoying the patio on a daily basis due to the beautiful weather. We loved the fact that we could walk to the Artisian markets, grocery stores, and felt perfectly safe. Owner Carlos responded promptly and also arranged to have a cook come to our home to cook us breakfast every morning since we had to be at school every morning at 8am. Her name was Priscilla and was wonderful, she speaks Spanish only. You buy the groceries and she will cook for you. Overall we had a wonderful time and I would recommend to others, certainly if you are many guests. Wifi worked great too.

Warm and gracious host, beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

The four of us (me, wife, plus two kids) stayed in Carlos's house for a month - and I wish we could've stayed longer! It was a beautifully kept home full of character and charm. There was ample room - in fact, there were four spacious bedrooms. The house was perfectly located in a quiet street close to the center of town and near all the shops and sightseeing spots. Carlos was the perfect host, who went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Highly recommended.

La ubicación es excelente, poco trafico y de quietud extraordinaria. Las instalaciones son de primera que hacen que uno se sienta como en casa.La atención para la entrega fue muy ágil y muy amables.

Por la arquitectura de la Ciudad de Antigua; esta casa lo hace integrarse en el ambiente colonial. Es muy seguro. Mi esposa y yo disfrutamos de la estancia. La recomendamos.
