  • 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."

  • Perfect for our Families

    "Given the option, I don't think my family (4 adults, three teenagers) would have ever left this hacienda. It's hard to describe the tranquility here and the posted photos don't accurately convey it. I've tried to add a few of my own images but they too are insufficient. The experience of watching the erupting Vulcan Fuego from the roof terrace was one of the peak experiences of our lives. One of our group wanted a cook for the duration of our stay. In a food town like Antigua, I was resistant to the idea but I can't praise the cook and house-keeper enough for serving us. At our request, they made typical Guatemalan cuisine and we enjoyed pepian, hilachas, pulique and other wonderful morsels. The other staff, particularly our driver, were very kind and attentive. The driver took us to Lake Atitlan through the back country (at our request) and we had a wonderful journey. We intend to return soon and our visit will be timed to the availability of this property. Our only regret is that we did not stay long enough."

  • Perfect and amazing

    "I had been to Antigua before, so knew where I wanted to be. I recently rented the house for 2 weeks. I had no idea that we would enjoy a perfect package in renting this special place. The house, and the wonderful people who care for it are amazing ! Jose (house manager)picked us up at the airport and had a very comfortable Mercedes mini van.(ask for pricing - i recommend this service) He is lovely and a great driver. He took us to Chichicastenango twice-a must see (in my opinion). Jose was a great resource for local places to visit. Anna cooked us wonderful meals and made our long days fantastic. We hiked Pecaya and came home to a meal of Chili Rellenos! So nice. Location was just where we wanted to be-close enough to be in the city when we wanted to be there and far enough on a quiet street to sleep and enjoy the garden without noise. It is good for a family or group of friends. There is plenty of space to spread out-my favorite was the upstairs sun room when storms moved in. The house lacks nothing. The pictures don't do it justice! It was fabulous. It is in a perfect location and has everything you need (wifi and washer dryer!). We were just blocks away from the Artisan Market-yet it was very quiet. I will go back with my family and friends. I highly recommend the house and the owners. It all went as smoothly as could be.,"

  • 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."
