We love so much going back to Antigua that we decided to build a house in one of the best areas in town so that the whole family could enjoy it. We love Antigua because from there we can easily arrange day trips to the Lake, Monterrico Beach in the Pacific, Pacaya Volcano, Chichi and other places. Also we always find there is so much to do in town: bike riding, horse riding, coffee farm visits, shopping handcrafts, museums, musical concerts sometimes, many restaurants, and so on. We hope you'll enjoy all that Antigua has to offer and I bet you will want to keep coming back too! Sonia and Mario, Chicago

Mario purchased this house in 2005

Location, location, location.... house is located in North East corner of main town in a very exclusive gated residential community...before we built the house we chose this location carefully at a premium for our family stays in Antigua with the objective to be in walking distance to major attractions but not too close so that we could have greater privacy away from busy public market/bus terminal area. If we take shortest routes, on a normal day, it takes about ~5 min walk to Santo Domingo, ~10 min walk to Capuchinas, ~12-15 min walk to Santa Catalina Arch, ~15-walk 20 min to Central Park.

You can walk within the gated community and enjoy the nice gardens we have around.

LOVELY, COMFORTABLE HOME

  • 4 of 5
Mario was a pleasure to work with and responded to all questions very promptly. The house was lovely, well-equipped, clean and comfortable. The area was safe and secure, and the landscaping is beautiful.

The only thing that we didn't love was the walk into town. It was a little longer than we expected after reading the reviews, and it wasn't as easy as we thought to get a cab to pick us up. It seems that there aren't one or two numbers you can call for a cab, but instead you have to collect cards from individual cab drivers and call them for availability. That being said, once we developed a relationship with a particular cab driver he came and got us whenever we needed.... But it took a bit of time to figure that out and luckily we spoke Spanish.

My wife and our son spent a week in this house over the Thanksgiving holiday and we loved the house. The house had everything we needed for our visit. This house is located close to the Casa Santa Domingo hotel. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone needing a comfortable house is a very safe, quiet neighborhood.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BY FREQUENT TRAVELERS WITH 6 AND 4 YEAR OLDS

  • 5 of 5
Mario was great from the beginning offering tons of useful information prior to our arrival in Antigua. We were amazed at the how much more beautiful the home was than the photos. The house has all the amenities you need. It was perfect for our 6 and 4 yr olds as they had plenty of room to run around. The gated community was beautiful and the location was quiet, safe and very comfortable for the week we were there. El Centro was about a 15 minute walk but there are plenty of beautiful buildings, shops and restaurants to visit on your way down to the center square. Highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful city. Thank you Mario for letting us use your amazing house!

VERY NICE HOUSE - A GREAT PLACE TO RELAX AFTER EXPLORING ANTIGUA AND SURROUNDING AREAS

  • 5 of 5
Our family made our first trip to Guatemala using VRBO for the first time as well. We were pleasantly surprised by the comfort and conveniences of this home. The owners representative met us at the house and showed us around with all the information needed to enjoy the home. Beautiful living room and dining room, kitchen is fully equipped. All the bedrooms were very comfortable. The home is large enough to get lost in. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a clean safe place to stay in Antigua. Thank you!!!!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 5 of 5
We had a beautiful time staying in this property over Christmas / New Year, 2012/2013.
The house was beyond our expectations, beautifully built, decorated and furnished. There is lots of space inside the house and it is big enough to stay with a large family in 4 bedrooms. The house is very wellcleaned and kept well.
The house is indeed located in a quiet gated community and excellent for little children to walk around up to a playground, all safe, quiet with almost no cars.
It is a nice walk into the centre of Antigua, around 15 up to 20 minutes. But tuc tuc's and taxi's can also drive you there (you can easily call for a taxi which will come and stop right at the door of the house).
The owner is extremely responsive and helpful with all questions. His local representatives are also very friendly and helpful, they awaited us arriving at the house at midnight due to late flight arrival.

We can highly recommend this place to stay in Antigua!
