Dream house for a perfect holiday in Antigua

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous house was exactly as advertised - or even better! From the moment you step in to the property, you're surrounded by beautiful artwork and antique furniture - everything in a spotless condition. Being French, we love to cook local specialties on our holiday and this house was definitely the best option for us. There is a well stocked supermarket at 10 minutes walking distance for basic food stuffs, beer and wine, but we preferred the main market at just three blocks away, where you can purchase all the possible fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry and even fresh fish! You can turn all this to a great dinner at home, thanks to the more than well equipped kitchen, where you can find every possible utensil you may need. The BBQ and all the herbs on the terrace were a definite plus, too. Maria, the friendly housekeeper is a gem in keeping everything tidy and neat. The location is great, as you can easily walk everywhere in Antigua. Because of a gated, secure compound, the surroundings are very quiet and we slept very well in the comfortable beds In the morning, for breakfast, you can't beat the incredible views of the volcano from the terrace! Finally, Chris was as a great host, very responsive and easy to deal with. Hopefully, we'll back again soon!

Look no Further

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our adult daughter returned yesterday after a month here. It is perfect in every respect. We will be back. The location, the house, the furnishings, Maria and Julio, the neighbors. You will not find a better equipped kitchen. The owner owns an outstanding restaurant in town. This gorgeous house is close to everything with 24/7 security. Antigua has won our hearts completely. Excellent cheap Spanish lessons (Maximo Nivel) and salsa lessons, a gym nearby, organic farm produce from Caoba, coffee and cocktails on the rooftop terrace surrounded by volcanos and a sauna. Por Que No?

Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect vacation home. The doors of the rooms on the main floor open to the private courtyard garden, where I begin the day with Guatemalan coffee. A short walk to Parque Central in Antigua, for people watching, or Antigua shops and restaurants and attractions. If you are looking for sanctuary, the home is located in a neighborhood private and quiet. If you are seeking adventure, after day excursions it is the perfect place to return each evening. A daily short walk to Antigua's market, for fresh fruits and vegetables, to be prepared in a the house's state of the art kitchen; followed by my evening glass of wine on the rooftop, enjoying the sunset and an unbeatable vista of the majestic volcano Agua.

Stunning house walking distance to Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 is staying at this gorgeous house for two months. Everything about it is really high quality. The gourmet kitchen with all of the appliances is wonderful since we love to cook. My husband has chosen to work out of this handsome office rather than go into town to his own office. It is that comfortable! We have enjoyed the outside patio area (a great spot to sit with friends and have cocktails). I must admit, it has been heavenly for our children to have the 50 inch flatscreen with a bunch of channel options. All in all, it is a beautiful house, has gorgeous art, amazing furniture and is really comfortable. Plus, it is so nice to be able to walk everywhere. One final perk, Maria, the lovely housekeeper who keeps us all organized and now her sister who we recently hired to cook for us. Come to Antigua and get spoiled!!
