Wonderful Vacation Home in the Heart of Antigua !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a Wonderful Home. This is the place to stay in Antigua. Only two blocks from the main plaza, this home is the largest home you will ever stay in during your life !! I measured the home at 5,500 sq.ft. It has three outdoor patios, two downstairs and one off the master bedroom upstairs. You can watch an active volcano from the upper patio all day long if you like. There is a large complete kitchen and four bedrooms. Also a family room and the largest living room on earth. My family loved the place; it is 120 feet long from one end of the place to the other; unbelievable. Also, for history buffs, the house was built in 1743 and is one of the few still standing homes from that era. The kitchen has a cupola that has to be over 20 feet high from the floor to the top of the cupola. The most incredible part of the stay was meeting the owner, Jose, and the magnificent Property Manager, George, and his sidekick, Dahr. George and Dahr set us up with private shuttles from Guatemala City to the house and back to the City. Also, the most memorable part of the visit was our 6 hour countryside tour with Dahr for only $150.00. All I can say is my family loved this house and the Service we received from George and his staff !! You will too !!! Robert Palmer, San Diego, California

Excellent house in the heart of Antigua

  • 5 of 5

First, George and Dahr (his assistant) were extremely cordial, staying in touch by e-mail and asking if we needed anything. They even let us borrow a local cell phone. This alone deserves high praise.

The house itself was much more than we needed. It is big, very big. Two inner courtyards with their fountains, lush vegetation, three bedrooms, one huge living room, a dining room... The pictures in the website are a good reflection of what the house actually looks like. The two most amazing things about the house were one of those courtyards, where we would just relax at the end of the day, and the views from the bedroom and terrace upstairs. Waking up to see the Volcán Agua directly in front of those windows was a luxury.

Location wise, the house is two blocks from Parque Central, about a five minute walk. The rest of the city landmarks are within a ten minute walk radius, including the main grocery store, La Bodegona. The street where the house is has quite a lot of traffic and although some of it (buses) can be heard from the inside, it does not become a problem. I guess it is the downside of living so close to the city center but again, for us it was not an issue beyond the second night.

Lastly, our three children (11, 9 and 7) had a great time exploring, playing hide and seek and watching TV at night in their own bedrooms, something they don't get to do at home.

Clearly, this house contributed to a memorable vacation in Antigua.

Beautiful colonial home just blocks from the Central Park.

  • 4 of 5

We have visited La Antigua over 20 times, staying both in private homes and in hotels. We found the home to be very lovely and spacious. It has two courtyards for enjoying the afternoon sun. The home is just a short walk to the Central Park in the center of town. We were able to walk to our favorite restaurants quite easily. The Master bedroom overlooks the Volcano Agua and there is a rooftop terrace for relaxing. The only reason I could not rate this home a 5* is because it is located on a main road and bus route causing quite a bit of noise starting at 4am. We did get used to the noise after a couple of days, though. We will be back in La Antigua every year or two and would be happy to book this home again. My entire family thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the home itself. My Mother flew in to spend Thanksgiving day with us and fell in love with this old home and its architecture. My daughters have asked to book this home when we return. Truly an Antiguan beauty.
