Why The Owner chose Antigua

I bought this property in 2002 as my home. I recently moved back to the UK but didn’t want to sell the house as I visit regularly and like everyone here still love Antigua so started to rent it out as a vacation property.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is really close to the centre of Antigua and in walking distance to all the main sights, restaurants and night life. The house is elegantly decorated yet still extremely cozy and comfortable. The area is quiet, secure and relaxing. The house is very well equipped with all modern conveniences and you will feel at home right away. There is a housekeeper provided to do cleaning and laundry and access to English speaking assistance and travel planning services.

Cute and safe

  • 5 of 5
I loved this little apartment!! A friend and I stayed 4 days and it was the perfect place. Neat and clean with a very nice house keeper that comes in on the weekdays. It is about a 10 minute walk to businesses and a little further to the center of town. We loved making dinner and eating out on the patio. It is a very secure area with a security gate so we felt very safe. If I ever went back to Antigua, which is a very lovely place also, this would be the first place I would want to stay again. I would highly recommend it to any of my friends and family. It was very affordable and friendly. I probably wouldn't recommend it to families with small children though because of the concrete stairs but Becky has another unit she rents out that from what I could tell was very nice also and I don't think it had any stairs. I would say better suited for a couple or as in my case a few friends on vacation together as there is a futon to use that my friend thought was comfortable.

Lovely quiet apartment with a great view

  • 4 of 5
This apartment is in a quiet back road a 10 -15 minutes walk from the centre of Antigua. It is light, clean, well equipped and comfortable. A lot of care has been taken in providing information and the things you need to get the best out of a stay in the lovely city of Antigua. The sleeping area is downstairs and whilst comfortable the room is not as nice as the rest of the apartment, but that shouldn't put you off staying here ... we had a great time thank you.

Fantastic Get away

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay here. We wanted a place for 2 weeks which had internet, and was more than just a room - Becky's apartment was perfect for this. We were warmly greeted with a refreshing fruit basket and basics like coffee and tea, and by the house staff, who came and cleaned everyday except the weekend. The apartment was really bright and lovely and was equipped with internet and all kitchen basics and was a 10 minute walk from the centre of town. The local book of what to see and do was really helpful, as was Heidi, the person who manages Becky's place.

A wonderful, cozy, base for exploring Antigua

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in this apartment. It is a comfortable walk to most places in the city and when we were tired, just a short tuk-tuk ride home.
We have traveled quite a bit and really have nothing but praise for the accommodations and service.
There some negative comments about the disposition of the housekeeper. We could not disagree more. Leonor kindly took me to the mercado to shop for the ingredients for Pollo Pepian and then gave us a wonderful cooking lesson. Sometimes you need to take time to get to know the locals to get a real understanding of the country. Anyway, moving on, we would certainly stay here again, although for a stay of a month or more one can find better deals one apartments. For several days or a few weeks, you would be hard pressed to find anything equal to this property.

Wonderful apartment!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Becky's apartment for 10 days in June and enjoyed it very much. It's amazing to sit in the living room and have such an unobstructed view of the volcano from the windows. The location is an oasis away from the diesel smell of the tuc-tucs and chicken buses. It is a two story apartment with the bedroom on the bottom floor -- a queen size bed, a bit on the firm side for us. I mentioned this to Heidi, the apartment manager, as we were leaving and she said she wished she had known earlier because she may have been able to trade a mattress from the house below. I never even considered that to be a possibility! Living room, kitchen and bathroom are on the top floor. The apartment is very clean and has everything necessary in the kitchen to be able to cook at home should you wish. We made breakfast every day. It was really nice to find coffee, sugar, milk, and a bowl of fruit waiting for us when we arrived! The housekeeper does a fabulous job. She comes Monday thru Friday. There is a basket in the closet to put your dirty clothes and Leonora washes them for you. There is a washing machine you can use if you want to do wash yourself but why would you?

The walk to the Central Park in Antigua took us about 20 minutes but we enjoyed walking every day. Tuc-tucs are available but not from the apartment...you need to walk three very long blocks to find one. Our solution to that was to ask a tuc-tuc driver we found to be very friendly for his phone number. Whenever we wanted a tuc-tuc from the apartment we called him. There is a cell phone left for your use and this is one good way to use it!

We left information in the apartment about a wonderful guide we found (this site asks that you not leave contact names/numbers) He speaks great English. We hired him to guide us around Antigua and couldn't have had a better experience! He went way above and beyond the time agreement we had. He is licensed to take you anywhere around Guatemala you care to go.

Antigua is an amazing city. You will enjoy your visit and you will enjoy this apartment. Heidi was responsive to any requests/needs we had. If you need a bit more space, look at VRBO listing 288895. It is Becky's house on the same property. You will give up the volcano view from the living room windows but you will get a huge porch with hammocks and a lovely garden.
