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.

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 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 are also security systems.
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 are making 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 a fee you can have access to the pool and their facilities. There are also other hotels with pools that are available for a small fee.

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.
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. Having vacationed in Antigua for the past three years, we decided this was where we wanted to spend part of the year once we retire and sell the farm. At present we can only make it down to Antigua a couple of times a year for short stays.
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.
There were several things we were looking for in a house and this house met those requirements: close in, formal courtyard, larger home and a quiet neighborhood. A plus to this house is that it has three levels of water purification, several levels of security and mosquito screens on all the bedroom windows.
