Overview

About the property

Nestled between three dramatic volcanoes in Central America, is another of Antigua's hidden secrets - a luxurious, colonial vacation home worthy of the majestic setting in which it sits. The beauty and affordable luxury of this spectacular home which is divided into 5 houses, with a total 18 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms, two-story villas (which sleep up to 42) will enchant you. You may want to rent just one of the 3000 square feet homes, or if your group is larger, 2 to 5 of the homes to keep your group together. It is the perfect home-base from which you and your group can explore the ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets of the world famous town of Antigua.

Just six blocks from the Central Square (Parque Central), this beautifully decorated colonial style home is located in an authentic, friendly neighborhood, Residencial Hermita, and comes fully-equipped with all first-world amenities (broadband internet, cable/satellite TV) and the old world charms (open fireplaces, wooden ceiling beams, beautiful shared garden, courtyard and picturesque swimming pool). The home also comes with a housekeeper, who comes daily to clean & do your washing. For a slight additional charge she will cook delicious meals for you and your family and friends during your stay.

Imagine…a vacation home where you wake up every morning to amazing local art and beautiful colonial architecture of exposed brick, rare aged wood, and wrought iron.

Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage City, is the most visited city in Central America. It is centrally located in Guatemala making it easy to take short trips to other popular destinations like Lake Atitlan, Chichicastenango, the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and Tikal. Known as the 'land of the eternal spring', Antigua has a humidity-free average temperature of 75 degrees all year round with cool comfortable evenings, so there is never a bad time to visit.

Availabilities for this beautiful colonial home can quickly become limited, so it is suggested you book early. When booking you may want to also consider booking a deep-sea fishing trip, golf outing, or a trip to Tikal or Lake Atitlan, we would be happy to help you with organizing this for you.

POOL – Our heated swimming pool and hot tub are at your disposal.

This is an ideal vacation home for families, couples, or small travel groups.

FREE MAID SERVICE - We know that during your vacation, the last thing you want to do is make your bed, clean the dishes and do the housework, so this service really turns your stay into a proper relaxing holiday.

INSIDE TIPS - we provide our guests with extensive notes on what to do, our favourite restaurants, our favourite places to visit, doctor's contacts etc...

FOOD BASKET - upon arrival let us know, and we will do our best to find your favourite foods.

CONCIERGE/TRAVEL AGENT SERVICES - provided to you by our property Manager, Paola, who is at your beck and call.

Upon booking a 5 night minimum stay, you receive a 1 free night at our property in Lake Atitlan!

About Paola

From Britain, but spent my entire adult life in Guatemala, working in the tourism industry. I am now living in the Twin Cities, and trained as an addiction counselor. Very much miss Guatemala, but Paola, our lovely House manager is onsite to help you with one of our rentals. Do give me a call.... I appreciate any opportunity to be able to talk about Guatemala...the land of eternal Spring.

Why Paola chose Antigua

Antigua's hidden secret:

Enjoy a restful stay in our centrally-located, 4 bedroom/3 bath, luxurious, colonial-style, vacation home (sleeps up to 10). You will find that our luxurious home offers surprising extras and special touches around every corner - It is more than worthy of its majestic setting!

What makes this house unique

Kids and adults alike can enjoy the shared solar-heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in a beautiful and tranquil courtyard - right next door. The house itself offers: wireless internet, satellite TV, games and novels, local travel guides, and bicycles. You can rest your weary feet after a stimulating day of sightseeing, by relaxing in front of a roaring fire, surrounded by old wooden, antique beams, and all the comforts of home.

The flower-filled private garden can be appreciated as you enjoy a delicious meal outside, or from the gentle swing of a hammock - don't forget to watch out for the rainbow hummingbirds!

For those of you ‘Chefs' who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, including such luxuries as a Magimix and Juicer! However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful housekeeper, Dona Clara Luz, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds. This, plus babysitting, if you wish to sample the multitude of restaurants in Antigua, can be easily arranged by Paola, who is onsite.

Dona Clara Luz comes for a couple of hours every day to clean and do the laundry, and is always very willing to help out with any small errands, like going to the market. You will certainly enjoy her great s

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

"Great house! Clean, comfortable, but still makes you feel like you are in Guatemala. Location was so close to everything. Guards at the front were great and were careful to check who was coming in and out which made us feel very secure. Really appreciated even the small things like having fruit and vegetable cleaner in the kitchen! I felt right at home but also felt like I was in paradise!"

Great place to fully experience Antigua

  • 5 of 5

"Located close to restaurants, shops and bars this is a perfect place to stay with your family or a group of friends. The attention and amenities were great. The house was really nice, confortable beds and spacious rooms. Note that the house doesn't´t really have much windows, only some skylights. I´d definitely stay here again, Phillipa and Paola were always really attentive to our needs."

A retreat experience

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing, the best experience on our Guatemal trip. They also get a professional chef that cooked for us for every meal, his name is Juan Carlos, ask for him, you would not regret, and he cooks for a very good price. We stay there for two nights and if I came back it would defenitley be here. Thanks for everything.

Beautiful Home in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

The place was absolutely beautiful and exceeded our expectations. Paola was very helpful in early communications as well as checking in on us during our stay. The location couldn't be more ideal for exploring the city while also having our own private getaway space.

Amazing house in Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

"This house is simply AMAZING. You won't regret staying there. The master bedroom is a dream and the residencial area very quiet. You are from a walking distance to Antigua Central Park. Also, within 2 blocks from the house you can find supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants, etc. We were there during Semana Santa and some of the processiones just crossed out street so we could enjoy it without going too far. Micaela (the cleaning lady) was very kind and the communication with Paola very easy. I would absolutely recommend this house. "

A relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home on Lake Atitlan was a wonderful place to come home to while visiting the area. Communication beforehand was excellent, including an email containing a comprehensive guide to the house and the area, with phone numbers for local contacts. We were concerned about finding the small dock in front of the house but we called Santos when leaving Pana and he met us on the dock and helped with our luggage (thankfully we had a Spanish-speaker with us). The home was very clean with beautiful, fresh flowers in vases in the kitchen and bedrooms. The photos are a true representation of the space and we thoroughly enjoyed eating on the large deck overlooking the water and relaxing in the hammock. We walked the path to the Santa Cruz docks a few times. Remember to stock up on all the supplies/food you'll need while in Pana and enjoy the quiet beauty
