About this listing
Antigua's hidden secret: Enjoy a restful stay in our luxurious, colonial-style, vacation home. You will find that our wonderous home offers surprising extras & special touches around every corner. The home is perfect for you to explore the ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets of the world-famous city of Antigua. This home is perfect for one or two travelers who are seeking to stay in our large and inviting home.
The flower-filled private garden can be appreciated as you enjoy a delicious meal outside, or from the gentle swing of a hammock - don't forget to watch out for the rainbow hummingbirds!
For those of you ‘Chefs' who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, including such luxuries as a Magimix and Juicer! However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful housekeeper, Dona Clara Luz, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds. This, plus babysitting, if you wish to sample the multitude of restaurants in Antigua, can be easily arranged by Paola, who is onsite.
Dona Clara Luz comes for a couple of hours every day to clean and do the laundry, and is always very willing to help out with any small errands, like going to the market. You will certainly enjoy her great sense of humor and zest for life!
Imagine… a vacation home where you wake up every morning to a majestic volcano right outside your bedroom window. And inside, everywhere you look there is spectacular local art and beautiful colonial architecture of exposed brick, rare-aged wood, and wrought iron.
Located in a safe, secure and quiet gated community, it is only 5 blocks from the Parque Central (central square) and just 2 blocks from the main supermarket “The Bodegona” and the local produce market in Antigua.
This beautiful colonial-style home is the perfect home-base from which you and your family and friends can explore the delights that this UNESCO Heritage Site offers. The ruins, cathedrals, museums, restaurants, cafes, bars, and shops that are dotted throughout the cobble-stoned streets are all easily accessible by foot.
You will have access to all of the common areas throughout our home.
Interaction with guests
We have our Manager, Paola, in Antigua, who is there to help you with any dinner reservations, or to tell our about our favorite places to visit. However, we will very much leave you to enjoy the privacy you deserve.
The house is located 9 blocks from the Central Park. I love the neighorhood, as it is still one of the few remaining authentic parts of Antigua, with a local Guatemalan candy store, just a few houses away.
Since Antigua is a fairly small city, you can walk throughout the city. Otherwise, we can arrange a taxi or Tuk Tuk to come pick you up from our property.
Other things to note
We send you extended notes about the house, along with favorite tips on what to do and where to eat.
From Britain, but spent my entire adult life in Guatemala, working in the tourism industry. I am now living in the Twin Cities, and trained as an addiction counselor. Very much miss Guatemala, but Paola, our lovely House manager is onsite to help you with one of our rentals. Do give me a call.... I appreciate any opportunity to be able to talk about Guatemala...the land of eternal Spring.
