Our house has some really cool unique features that you are going to love about spending time here! The house was originally a charming little hotel and is set out as such with private rooms and open communal areas. Each of the 6 rooms has an its own bathroom and can be as private as you'd like it to be. Our two beautiful communal courtyards are just perfect for sunny afternoons and we also have a gorgeous terrace that wraps around the home where you can enjoy great views of the volcanos.
The very front of the house is a storefront that is open to the public. We have a small cafe, El Secreto run by Jo and the Stela 9 boutique there. Hours are 8am-5pm everyday.
Guests can access the courtyards, the large terrace and kitchen. The smaller terrace is private. Please be respectful to other guest and their space and remember that this is a home, not a hotel 3
Interaction with guests
We are in the house mostly everyday and will be more than willing to help and advise you with your stay with us the best we possibly can! You'll have a list of Jess' shopping, restaurant and bar recommendations in your room upon arrival. This being said, please be mindful of both Jess and Jo's time. We run two businesses and on Tuesdays we have the pop-up restaurant, so if we seem busy (we probably are). If you need help planning your trip further we can always recommend great travel agencies in town!

+++ Rainy season in Guatemala starts in April and ends in November. If you come during this time, please be prepared for occasional humidity in the rooms and mosquitos. All of Antigua is like this, no matter where you stay because we are in the Tropics. This means that there will occasionally be mosquitos and humidity. We do our very best to keep the mosquitos away and out of our gardens and we use a dehumidifier in the rooms. We have one plug-in dehumidifier that rotates between rooms during cleanings. If you feel like your room is particularly humid, please ask to use it.
CHECK-IN IS BETWEEN 2PM - 4PM. If you're arriving after the check-in window, please make sure you receive the current lockbox code and directions to your room.
We just ask that you respect the house as you would your own. You can come and go as you please day or night, just be respectful of others sleeping if returning late at night or hanging out in the courtyards. You can smoke on the terrace and drink in any of the outdoor areas of the house as long as you dispose of any waste responsibly.
Feel free to use the kitchen whenever you'd like, just make sure to clean up after yourself.

Originally from Los Angeles, California but I now call Antigua, Guatemala home. I own Stela 9, a fashion line that works directly with artisan groups in Guatemala to produce sustainable clothing and handbags.
