When Tom finished his university studies in 2005 as a translator Spanish-English-Dutch he wanted to do something different than just a computer job and decided to go to Guatemala to practise his Spanish, to volunteer and to do some backpaking. As a backpacker, on his way from Biotopo el Quetzal to Semuc Champey, his accidentally bumped into his current wife Alejandra when visiting Coban. They first went to live together in Belgium where Tom worked as a Spanish, English, Dutch and French teacher. But after a while Alejandra and Tom desired for another challenge and they started working as representatives for a Belgian and later a Canadian tour operator in many beautiful countries like Spain, Greece, Dominican Republic and Mexico. But Guatemala was always in their heart and finally they decided to return in 2013 to Guatemala to buy a piece of land and build their own paradise, which they would now like to share with you.
Owner purchased this House in 2007
Why Owner chose Antigua Guatemala
Tom has always been fascinated by Guatemala and especially Antigua. Antigua is a laid back town with so many things to do. There are dozens of ruins to visit, beautiful colonial houses all around, dozens of viewpoints with breathtaking views on the 3 volcanoes that surround us, hundreds of restaurants and bars, many cultural activities, etc.... Even if this is just a little town you will never get bored. Alejandra liked Belgium a lot, but finally the cold weather of Belgium made her decide she wanted to live in Guatamala too, back in the country of eternal spring.
What makes this House unique
The house is walkable from the center, but just far enough so that you are away from all the noise of the bars and traffic in the center. Once you get home, you will feel in paradise where you can relax and have a good sleep after all your exciting trips. You will enjoy the view you have from the living room on the garden, or from your bed upstairs on the mountains that surround us. The kids will fall in love with the many hammocks and will beg you to buy one to take home, if not they will refuse to go back home with you ;-)

everything we needed.
This was a great place to stay; If we had known earlier how nice, we would have extended our stay. Working kitchen with necessary appliances in kitchen,comfy beds and sofa downstairs, nice view from both upstairs and downstairs, LOVED IT. Tom was cordial and very helpful.We did eat breakfast on the covered patio and it was fine.filtered water included. The area was very QUIET! the only negative was that it was a bit far from town.; however everything else was SPOT ON!
Service, location, comfort, elegant style!
Be your family’s hero. They can not be disappointed. Tom helped us with everything, especially our difficulties with phones. We were highly impressed with Tom’s knowledge and abilities. Christy helped with everything. We have traveled a lot and have never found better service. Thank you, thank you!
Al and Candy
Hi Al and Candy. It was a pleasure hosting you and your family. Thank you for my weekly glass of wine and the interesting conversations ;-) I wish you both all the best and hope to see you back next year. Tom
Best place to stay in Antigua!
Peaceful private Oasis close enough to walk to everything.
It was a pleasure having you stay with us Kevin. We are glad you liked our little oasis in Antigua Guatemala.
Nice quiet location
We've stayed here for 6 nights and had a very relaxing time.
Alejandra and Tom are very helpful to answer your questions, give your tips where to go etc.
The location is a little walk to town but very well do-able.
Because it is a little out, it is much quieter than a lot of other places we have stayed in Antigua.
The upper bedroom was a bit warm to sleep in and it would have been nice if there was a bit more comfortable seating in the living room.
There was a small couch and chair but only for 3 persons and we stayed with the 4 of us which made the last person sit on a plastic or dining room chair.
Besides that we loved everything.
Quiet neighborhood, nice location!
Easy walk to the market. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The pictures don’t do the place justice. We would definitely go back and stay again.
BEST PLACE TO STAY IN ANTIGUA, GUATEMALA
This place is so amazing! We couldn't have asked for better, friendlier, more helpful hosts than Tom & Alejandra! They both speak perfect Spanish & English, and Tom speaks Dutch as well. You are both beautiful people with huge hearts, & we will miss you, and our apartment, so very much!!
We stayed in Apartment #3 for 3 weeks, but all apartments are perfect! Room for many more people in our apartment ... super clean (thanx to ur hard-working, wonderful staff, Antonio y Jasmine ... thank u for all of ur hard work, & sunshine-smiles ... ur beautiful!! Free wifi was an added bonus. The property is outside of the tourist district, and peaceful & quiet. Beautiful gardens, 2 comfy hammocks to each apt., kitchen with a huge fridge, gas stove, & fully stocked with pots, pans, blender, coffee maker , microwave & more ... comfy living room with a tv with like 100 channels! We slept great on the beds,, and the upstairs room offered a choice of single, double & queen beds of different firmness.
In the garden, there are lounge chairs & a beautiful, shaded pergola where we spent a lot of time hanging out, laughing & getting to know many new friends ... laundry facilities, bathroom, loads of sun and so relaxing! They have a huge, fully stocked refrigerator with beer, pop, wine & alcohol, for the days we ran out or didn't want to leave! And two water fountains to watch the birds bathing!!
Apartamentos Los Nazarenos is perfectly located if u want to be a short walk to everything, including a huge outdoor Mercado, and the Chicken bus terminal but just at the edge of town so we could go out without being bugged constantly to buy souvenirs!
