LOVELY HOME WITH GARDENS, VOLCANO VIEWS, QUIET SAFE NEIGHBORHOOD

Antigua House Rental Photos and Description

4 Sunny Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Spacious and Welcoming

Our house is located in the colonial neighborhood of Espiritu Santo, six blocks from the central park of La Antigua and five minutes walk of the colorful bounty of the town’s produce and artisan market. It is a gracious, corner house on a tranquil cul-de-sac, with views of the surrounding volcanoes and the enjoyment of flowering gardens, fruit trees, and birdsong.

Modern, spacious, the four-bedroom, family-style house is a relaxed blend of Guatemalan and American styles, with modern conveniences, and a delightful a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces. The house is a recent purchase for us and we have enjoyed some stunning renovations and adding photographs and local color. The house sleeps 6 people; an extra fee is charged for up 2 additional people to cover utilities and service.

First floor: A welcoming entrance hall opens into a large living room with glassed doors to outdoor veranda, formal dining room seating eight, and fully equipped modern kitchen, and bathroom with shower. From the kitchen, access to laundry and dryer, outdoor traditional “pila” or washing room, and outside kitchen garden. Gracious shaded veranda with relaxing chairs and hammock leads into gardens with lion’s-head fountain and to the two additional gardens beyond.

Second floor: Off an upstairs landing are the master bedroom with king-sized bed and private bath (tub and shower), two bedrooms with twin beds, and a third bedroom with queen-sized bed; the latter share a bathroom with shower. An all-weather, glassed-in sunroom leads off the fourth bedroom. Both the master bedroom and fourth bedroom open onto the outdoor upstairs patio for morning coffee, sunning, and evening cocktails. All rooms are all spacious and sunny, with high ceilings and tiled floors.

Gardens/outdoor spaces: Within the walled compound are easy spaces for reading in the hammock, sculpting or painting in the garden, hanging laundry in the sun, a game of basketball or croquet, as well as ample garage space for one car or van. The house veranda leads directly onto a formal garden with fountain (lit at night) and a small kitchen garden near the back/kitchen door to the house. Through a lovely garden gate is a basketball court, ping pong table and a back garden where we are nurturing fruit trees, more flowers and birds.

Other Conveniences: Wireless Internet, fully equipped kitchen, gas stove, washer and dryer, DVD player, house phone. The house has its own water cistern and filter. Part-time services of talented housekeeper for general cleaning and enthusiastic gardener are included. Our house manager is fastidious about welcoming and orienting guests and taking care of guests questions or needs as they arise. We couldn't be luckier to have such a great team.

I have been dreaming about spending more time in Guatemala for 20 years, since first visiting in connection with a love of traditional textiles. I traveled here with my growing children and friends for vacations and summer adventures and volunteer engagements. In 2005, I joined the Board of Safe Passage/Camino Seguro, providing educational opportunities and life-skills support for children and families in the community of the Guatemala City garbage dump, and found myself coming to Guatemala 2-3 times a year. At the same time, I embarked on project to write a cultural guide to the Ixil Region of northern El Quiche Department. Deepening my interest and involvement in Guatemala all led up to my buying this lovely property in a quiet section of Antigua and putting down excited roots in this city and country. In my other life, I live in the Boston area and help service-oriented non-profit organizations with strategic planning and monitoring & evaluation.

The new guidebook is called 'Guatemala Journey Among the Ixil Maya' -- for sale on Amazon.com and bookstores in Guatemala.

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

This is a fabulously quiet area of town that enables us to enjoy the birds and avoid the traffic. The neighbors know and care about each other and work together to keep the ambiance clean and safe. From here, there are easy backstreets to the Antigua market for fresh fruits and vegetables, flowers , and steaming neighborhood tortillas. It really feels like home and not just a vacation.

Great Antigua house

I live in a Brownstone in Brooklyn, NY with an economy of space so we were very impressed by the spaciousness, quietude and well appointed and secure house this is.The furnishings are very comfortable and the layout is conducive to watching the sunset from behind the volcano from the roof deck, or having a glass of wine on the garden patio listening to the splashing fountain. The grounds and the house are kept very well by a friendly, helpful staff. So centrally located- it's only a pleasant 5 minute walk to the great Antigua Market, yet in a perfectly quiet neighborhood. I would love to stay here again!

Owner's Response: We are happy and grateful that our guests feel the same way we do when we walk in the door of our "Casa 3" in La Antigua. Our neighborhood and house are, indeed, an oasis, with a blend of beauty, convenience, and relaxation.

Fantastic way to start our Guatemalan holiday

Our family of four stayed at this home for a week in November and arriving straight off long flights from Australia via the US, it was such a luxury to have so much space and quiet. The home is beautiful with many options of places to hang out in, including the much loved hammock on the shaded verandah.

Their house manager met us at the airport, making our arrival very easy, and we also hired him to drive us to and from our next destination - Lake Atitlan - which made it very pleasant. He is a beautiful, kind man.

The location is terrific - you can walk anywhere from the house - and we had no qualms at all about walking home from town after dinner's out. It is only a few blocks to the supermarket (La Bodegana) and the Artisans market ( a favourite place) as well as the main town market. The kitchen is well equipped and we made the most of it cooking many of our meals here.

The wireless internet was also really good.

If we came back to Antigua we would definitely return to this beautiful home. Our teenage boys loved it as much as we did.

Thank you for a great experience

I know I'm posting this review quite late, life just moves fast. My husband and I took our four children to Guate for Easter 2009. We had a wonderful time in this house. It was clean, comfortable, and a perfect location for us to walk everywhere! But the best part of our trip was the fact that, when my daughter became very ill and had to return to the US unexpectedly, the owners of the home were kind enough to accommodate our needs. Thank you so much for your kindness and follow up even after we got home in the US! We will return again this year and hope to stay in the same house if available.

Our family of four and friends (also family of four) stayed here between Christmas and New Year's 2009; the house is beautifully maintained, clean, and comfortable. The yard and gardens are private, the veranda perfect for relaxing while listening to the fountain. The space was ideal for the four parents and our four 20-something sons to come together to explore The Land of Eternal Springtime. The house was well equipped; the driver, housekeeper, gardener, and house manager were helpful and reliable. The location of the property is ideal... easy walk to the center of town but safe and quiet. We will return!
