Overview

Antigua House Rental Photos and Description

This comfortable 3BR home is located on the South end of the 'Calle del Arco' or the Arch Street which is the main street running through Antigua's Central Park. It is a great location for exploring all Antigua has to offer.

While Antigua is generally safe, you can sleep peacefully in this gated community with 24 hour security guards. You'll also enjoy friendly and helpful neighbors and a private park with fountain located within the community.

Our family spent 4 years living in this home and we spend our summers here so you will find it equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay.

The kitchen is equipped with a microwave, toaster oven, full size refrigerator, pots/pans and cooking utensils. The adjoining dining room has a large dining table to seat up to 8 and looks out onto the flower-filled garden. The living room is on the front of the house and boasts a fireplace and TV with cable including US and English language stations. Across the cobbled driveway from the main house is a laundry/storage room with a washer and dryer.

All 3 bedrooms are located on the second level and all of the bedrooms open to a terrace which overlooks the garden and has a view of Volcano Agua's peak. The master bedroom has a queen bed, shelves and desk, a vaulted ceiling and a 6 foot window overlooking the garden. The master bedroom has its own full bath accessed from within the room.

A second bedroom has two twin beds while a third bedroom has a double bed. A full bath is located between the 2nd and 3rd bathrooms.

The upstairs terrace is furnished with a sofa and chair where you can enjoy a morning cup of coffee or the afternoon sun.

Quoted prices include cable TV, electricity, water, unlimited high-speed DSL with WIFI, and 2 mornings per week of housekeeping. You may contract directly with the housekeeper for additional days.

About Velvet Beard

Our family spent 4 fantastic years living in Antigua in this home. We are now back in the States and visit every chance we get.

Velvet Beard purchased this house in 2005

Why Velvet Beard chose Antigua

I fell in love with Antigua while living there in 2002/2003 during the adoption of my daughter After returning for visits for a couple of years and staying in other people's houses, we decided to buy our own house with the intention of someday living in Antigua fulltime.

What makes this house unique

This home is in a great neighborhood with great neighbors where it is safe enough to let the kids play in the neighborhood park. Just a 15 minute walk to the Central Park.

Lovely, Convenient, Safe

We have rented this home twice on extended visits to Guatemala (2-3 weeks at a time) and it is truly our home away from home there. The home is spacious, with rooms decorated with local crafts and fabrics. The kitchen is huge and invites families and friends to gather together for a meal. There are WiFi and cable TV, as well as a washer and dryer. Only 7 blocks to the heart of Antigua, past beautiful pastel homes and ancient churches and just 3 blocks to one of the best restaurants in Antigua (Meson Panza Verde) and practically around the corner from La Escalonia, a combination nursery and restaurant/cafe -- a great place to start the day. For those with families, the Porta Hotel, with its beautiful pool and bountiful Sunday brunch is roughly 4 blocks away (you can pay $10 - less for kids - to use the pool during the week, even if you're not staying there). The home is in a gated community, so there is a high degree of personal safety too. This home is the perfect base for savoring all that Antigua, Guatemala and the surrounding area have to offer.
