About the property

Elegant and artistic 2nd home with three levels of living and garden spaces. Luxurious

3 bedroom, 3 bath professionally designed and managed. The large well appointed

kitchen will tempt the inner chef in you while your guests enjoy the dining room hosting

a gallery of the owners favorite artists. In the spacious living room there is a Baldwin

baby grand piano, flat screen tv, carved stone fireplace and views to the garden, fountain

and lap pool. In the principle garden a beautiful covered sitting area with fireplace is the

perfect spot to sit watching hummingbirds. Pick fresh produce from the raised herb

garden enjoying the luscious tropical ambiance with volcano view. Additionally, on the

ground floor just off the lap pool you can use the personal gym with rowing and elliptical

machines or relax and detox in the infrared sauna.

Climbing the floating geometric staircase (Barragon inspired) are three lovely bedrooms,

the master has a glorious marble bathroom, the two smaller bedrooms share a well

appointed modern bath. All rooms are outfitted with queen size beds, closets and reading

nooks. An outside terrace that overlooks the property and volcanoes connects the


The third floor has an infinity Jacuzzi where you can sit and watch Fuego (fire) volcano

erupt, or the fire works displays during the holiday seasons. A wooden deck provides a

perfect place for yoga and the large built in sitting area is ideal for a rooftop BBQ with

friends or a glass of wine at sunset.

We own a beautiful 1/8th Geoffory Cat that is an in-door out-door cat named Maraca. She loves people and she may come and visit you every once in a while. She is not allowed in the bedrooms, for she lives primarily in another designated area of the house with the caretakers.

About Kendra McLaughlin

The owner Laurel Jacobson arrived in Guatemala in the 70’s from Colorado. She is an

active designer and artist. Laurel owns and operates the well known boutique hotel and

restaurant Meson Panza Verde located in Antigua; as the curator of the art gallery Panza

Verde she has an extensive art collection from local and international artists. She also

designed and built Villas Balam Ya at Lake Atitlan which consists of 4 luxury villas on

the waterfront. After buying this house in 2005 for her personal residence, she renovated

the property extensively adding her artistic flair though out making it a unique gem in

Antigua, a blend of elegance, beauty, comfort and individuality. Now spending most of

her time out of Guatemala she has opened her home for guests to enjoy.

Why Kendra McLaughlin chose Guatemala

Staying in Antigua is always an adventure and joy but this house is an

experience unto itself. Surround yourself with art, style and comfort.

What makes this house unique

Get a glimpse of the elegant life of a local waking up to breakfast served in a private

tropical garden. Cocktails on the roof watching the sun setting over 3 volcanoes or a nap

in the hammock. Close enough to the city center but far enough to enjoy clean air, space,

privacy and quiet. Have a vacation!

Amazing place and attention. The pictures of the property are great but do not justice to being ther

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful and healing atmosphere. No picture can describe the beauty of the property, you have to see it and experience it yourself​.

Stunning in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home feels like our favorite hotel, Meson Panza Verde! Owners are the same and every detail is complete. Our stay was absolutely perfect. Maria, Pedro, and Luis, staff at the house, are sweet, hard working, and helpful in every way. They do not speak English, but communication was not a problem. Kendra is attentive, available and helpful. Words cannot describe how wonderful the design of this house is. We especially loved the gourmet kitchen, the outdoor sitting areas, garden, living room, and each of the three bedrooms. Caoba Farm is right down the street, with fresh, organic vegetables and a store with everything we needed. Maria cooked a Guatemalan soup for us one evening when we entertained friends. It was delicious! Thank you, from the bottoms of our hearts, for such a relaxing time in a stunning and charming house. We will be back!!

Peace and Tranquility in Antigua!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is stunning! Kendra was a joy to work with throughout the booking and while we were there. She responds very quickly to everything which we appreciated. Maria, Luis and Pedro were very kind, very helpful and always accessible. Shame on us that we speak such minimal Spanish that we couldn't visit with them more. The house is a 3km walk to town, a very easy walk and we did it every day - may as well get some exercise to balance out wine in the hot tub during our daily happy hour.

When we first arrived I was a little worried that we were too far out of town but after spending every day in the town, it was a true pleasure to come home to tranquility and the sounds of crickets to lull you to sleep. We even heard the volcano lightly erupting a few times.

My only wish as was noted by a previous guest was that the pool was heated. We didn't use the pool once - the sun just doesn't heat it up enough to be able to enjoy which is too bad because it is beautiful! The house is also beautifully decorated. The master suite is very comfortable and the other guest rooms looked very comfortable as well. The garden area is stunning as well! We looked forward to returning to paradise every night after a long day of walking. The fresh flowers on arrival were a nice touch!!

You are provided with a cell phone with all contacts you will need already pre-programmed which is very helpful. I would return to Casa Hunab if we come back to Antigua. Thanks for sharing your home!

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

The house is very spacious and absolutely beautiful. Communication with information about the trip was timely and helpful. The kitchen was well stocked and Maria provided us with great breakfast. Luis and Pedro were wonderful. They provided everything we needed, no matter when it was requested. Great directions, helpful hints about the area, and even flashlights when the neighborhood had a 5 minute power outage. I can't say enough about the staff, they were top notch.

The home itself is incredible. Two living levels with roof top deck and hot tube overlooking the volcano. Very tranquil. The lower level has large windows overlooking the beautifully kept yard and lap pool. The house is well decorated with antiques from around the world. The entire home is really quite stunning.

The master suite is large and comfortable and the other two bedrooms are well laid out and comfortable as well. The experience was spot-on and i would highly recommend Casa Hunab to anyone traveling to Antigua.
