Overview

Antigua House Rental Photos and Description

Purified water system, window screens, 8 bed, 5 bath. Layers of security.

Casa del Oasis is about a five minute walk to the Mercado, the artisan market and the main grocery store.

The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, at the end of a private drive. It is an easy walk to the park in the center of town, all the ruins and churches, as well as the many wonderful places to eat and shop.

There is a maid that is available to you, free of charge three days a week. If you need a maid for more time than this, it can be arranged. The property offers secure off road parking.

The house is laid out in the traditional Spanish colonial 'U' shape with an enclosed courtyard which includes a fountain, lovely plants, outside dining and seating areas.

There are two bedroom and three baths downstairs in the main part of the house. Upstairs is the master bedroom/bath, as well as an exit to the terrace with dining and relaxing areas, as well as a hot tub. There is also a trundle bed in the upstairs hall.

Directly across the courtyard is the servant's wing. There are two bedroom (one has twin bunk beds and bath), as well as full laundry area.

The bottom part of the 'U' contains the living room, dining room, kitchen and garage area. All furnishing are new or antiques. There is WIFI and cable TV.

The property also has a hot tub and several seating areas on the upstairs terrace and a small quiet garden to one side of the house that is a nice space to sit and read.

This property has an extensive water purification system so you can drink the water straight out of the tap. There is also a cistern so when Antigua is out of water, you are not. There are also several levels security.

Having rented houses in Antigua before buying this home, we stayed in some lovely places but they were either very noisy, had poor ventilation, lack of security, impure water, to far from town or just not comfortable. We have made this home as comfortable and convenient as we can for ourselves and our guests.

Airport pickup can be arranged. If you are staying for a month or more, we will provide airport pickup free of charge. We can also arrange groceries to be in the home when you arrive and a cook if you need one.

Hotel Soleil is close by and for about $10 a day you have pool access. There are also other hotels with pools that are available for a small fee.

About Judy Hansen

We live in rural Washington state on a small farm where we have raised and trained hunter and jumper horses for the past 20 years. Our farm is about 90 miles south of Seattle. After having vacationed in Antigua for three years, we decided that was where we wanted to spend part of the year once we retire. At present we can only make it down to Antigua a couple of times a year for short stays.

Judy Hansen purchased this house in 2012

Why Judy Hansen chose Antigua

After traveling around for several years we went to Antigua when a friend recommend the town to us; she said we would love it because of its history, ruins, (UNESCO site), fabulous restaurants, rural farming areas close by, the cosmopolitan feel to the town and of course the climate. She was right. On the third trip down we decided to buy this home.

What makes this house unique

There were several things we were looking for in a house and this house met those requirements: close in, formal courtyard, larger home in a quiet neighborhood. A plus to this house is that it has a water purification system, several levels of security and mosquito screens on all the bedroom windows.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Enjoyed our stay at the lovely home which included a maid three days a week. Friendly neighbors, some Guatemala and some ex pats, in a quiet neighborhood. The house is close to the downtown area, yet far enough away from all the traffic and noise. It was a short walk to all the sights.

LIVING LIKE THE RICH AND FAMOUS

  • 5 of 5

Elegant and classy, and such a feel for the surrounding area.

Safe ,so quiet at night and the woman who cleans the house as well as the young man who is the gardener what delights to talk with, it shows how proud they are of their country .Also Denis the manager is there to greet you with any questions that you may have .

The house just flows very nicely from rooftop with hot tub to court yard to living room and kitchen. You get the feel ,that your living like the other half live, yet it's so comfortable, Walking to the neighborhood store which is a close 5 minutes, your greeted by a friendly buenos dias from the locals , the Guatemalan people are very kind people .

I had a wonderful time exploring the country and returning at night to my secure oasis

Do your self a favor and live a little , this place is worth it .

one note and not a complaint , if you use the rooms by the court yard ,there is a street light that shines in, bring a sleeping mask if your light sensitive.

Thanks for opening your home to this wayward traveler

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at Casa del Oasis for a wedding and the week of preparation and fun beforehand. The house was perfect for us. The layout of the rooms and courtyard provided plenty of space to get together - or to be alone.

It's a short walk to town and an easy taxi or tuk tuk ride home. The maids were very helpful as was the caretaker (although we really didn't have a need for anything).

I'd highly recommend the house. We will definitely use it again on future trips.

Casa del Oasis, Antiqua, Guatemala

  • 5 of 5

Our Family just returned from a stay in this beautiful home. The pictures do not do it justice. Everything was very clean and well furnished. The gardens and patio are beautiful. Denis, the property manager lives across the street from the entrance to the home and was most helpful. He and his wife speak good English. We could drink the tap water and flush the toilets like we do hear in the states. I would recommend this home to anyone that is staying anytime in Antiqua.

Great spot for a group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of friends in December. The house is incredibly spacious and has lots of places to hide away for a quiet place to read or just relax. It is close to the the central market and the grocery stores. About a 15 min walk to the center of town. We did it every day ( sometimes twice a day!) without a problem. And we liked being out of the center a bit. We did a mix of cooking in and eating out and appreciated the fact that the owners have a well stocked kitchen. You can cook a decent meal there with no problem. The central courtyard was a lovely place to hang out in the sun. In the cool mornings we appreciated the indoor dining room and in the cool evenings the hot tub was very welcome. It a great place for a big group because you don't feel at all crowded. The property manager is very nice and helpful and the owners were prompt in responding to all inquiries.
