  • Comfortable and Safe Stay in Antigua for Family of Five

    "My family and I enjoyed our stay at this house. The house is close to central Antigua, while being just far enough to provide a refuge from the hustle and bustle. The house had plenty of space for myself, my wife, and our three children (14, 12, 10). The kitchen was modern, and there is a good amount of common space with the dining room and family room. I enjoyed the patio and the gardens around the patio."

  • My guests were sad to leave. And I can't wait to go back!

    "If you want safety, security, quiet, beauty and views amidst luxury in a perfect location, choose Casa Bella! The minute I came through the front security gate into the compound, I knew that Casa Bella was going to be exceptional in every way. From the chaos of the city streets, I found a sense of serenity and calmness in the surrounding beauty of the homes. As I stepped through the front door of the house, the inner garden greeted me with lush plantings and flowers of every color. The red hibiscus blooms were the size of dinner plates. The kitchen was welcoming, well-equipped, functional and kept sparkling clean by the housekeeper. The living areas were spotless and comfortable. The two ground level bedrooms had private baths with walk-in showers and shared a small garden. One of my guests had limited mobility and was well accommodated. The two large upper bedrooms shared a lavish bathroom and many amenities. They opened onto a huge terrace with 360-degree views of volcanoes and the old city. A spiral staircase led to another terrace with the highest views in the neighborhood. (We enjoyed many hours on these garden terraces watching sunrises, sunsets, full moons, volcanoes and shooting stars.) Casa Bella is actually a living museum of Guatemalan art. There are collections of paintings, sculptures and textiles throughout the property that thrill they eye and speak of the local people and their customs. The listing description and the virtual tour were accurate. The owner provided useful information about the workings of the house. Also strategic suggestions to help make our trip enjoyable. She gave tips that aren't found in guide books and stayed in touch. She anticipated our every need, including two house mobile phones. There were no bad surprises, only happy experiences. The driver/guide she suggested was a jewel. He negotiated the city traffic and mountain roads with skill. One of my guests asked me to mention Meson Panza Verde for a special dinner. I suggest a trip up to Tenedor del Cerro for Sunday brunch for the views, food, art and people watching. All five of us agreed that the trip to Lake Atitlan was the highlight of the trip."

  • An ideal home for visiting Antigua and surrounding locations - greatly exceeded expectations!

    "My family (my wife and I and five adult children) rented this GREAT home from Christmas through New Year's. It truly is an amazingly beautiful home in a perfect location (in a gated and safe community very close to the central square in Antigua with easy walking distance throughout the whole town). The pictures don't do it justice as this is probably the nicest VRBO home that we have ever rented. It is a very large home beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We took advantage of the ping pong table often and the many board and card games available in the home as well. The home also has a nice pool and hot tub. Our family, which likes to stay busy with adventurous activities, used the home as a base for visiting Antigua and surrounding locations. There are many ways to stay busy including volcano hikes (Pacaya and Acatenango), mountain biking, day trips (or longer) to Lake Atitlan, golf at La Reunion, coffee plantation tours, just hanging out in Antigua and much more. The owners are very responsive and helpful offering many traveling tips and recommendations for guides/outfitters. I would advise not renting a car - it is not necessary with plenty of transportation alternatives. The home comes with a housekeeper who made breakfast for us a couple of times and a groundskeeper who kept the landscape very beautiful. I can't think of a better home to rent in Antigua."

  • Convenient and quiet

    "We thoroughly enjoyed a few days in the condo. It was quiet and convenient for our family (admittedly, we do prefer to be a bit away from the action). We were easily able to walk around town. The pool was lovely - chilly, but the kids enjoyed it. The house was comfortable, had everything we needed and the full size washer/dryer was a bonus. The patio with table & chairs was also really nice."
