My Second Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house 5 or 6 years. This was my second stay and it is still as beautiful as I remembered it. The owner and all of the staff are friendly and very helpful. Our friends who traveled with us loved the house too. The kitchen is fully equipped and spacious. My spouses mother who lives in Guatemala cooked us an incredible meal on our last night there. There is also a large dining and living area with two fireplaces. The covered patio and beautiful garden were especially cozy while waiting for a brief shower to pass.

There are views of the volcanos from the master bedroom terrace and another bedroom on the second floor. There were fresh cut flowers in the bedrooms and dining room.

You won't be disappointed staying here. It is more beautiful than the pictures. My second stay and I would stay again and again and again.

Beautiful 4 Bedroom Villa in Antigua, Guatemala

  • 5 of 5

Very unique 4 bedroom villa in Antigua, Guatemala was perfect for our family of five. Maid service was great and if you leave any clothes or towels out to dry she will wash and dry. She actually took two of my like sweaters off the top of my suitcase and washed those. Not a problem but if you don't want anything washed make sure you close your suitcase! The bathrooms come with two rolls of toilet paper each and no more., even if you ask for it. For the price I paid to stay I don't think there should be a limit on toilet paper. So when you run out you need to go to the store to buy more. Beautiful views off the bedroom verandah of a volcano and a beautiful patio with a hammock off the kitchen!

Stunning Home in Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

"House is a fabulous 4plex surrounding the center pool. The location is just off the city center and is beautifully decorated and felt very safe inside a gated guard area. We did amazing day trips with the recommended tour company and they brought Antigua to life!"

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!"
