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.

Please see description and reviews. Also the pictures!!!!

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 Antigua 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.

Walkable to Everything; Wonderful Hosts; Lots of Natural Light

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Carlos' home in Antigua. The home itself feels very open with lots of natural light. We enjoyed the patio out back and ate most of our meals out there. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could want to cook (and given the fresh market is right around the corner, it's nice to be able to cook with all the yummy ingredients). We are a family of 4 and had 2 toddlers in the house - it was more than enough space for us. (We only used 2 of the bedrooms- all of which are spacious). Carlos and his wife were so hospitable and we were lucky enough to get to meet them on the last days of our stay. They really go out of their way to make sure you have a great stay. Location is walkable to everything - our kids took spanish lessons at Mundo School around the corner, we loved eating at Acai Restaurant nearby and walked to so many of the plazas - even the main one is only a 15 min walk. You can look up Retired Toddlers on Instagram or YouTube to see our video of our time in Antigua if you want ideas!

Carlos = Amazing: Property is in the ideal location for a family staying in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

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.
