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 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 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.

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. 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.

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 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.

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.

Beautiful home in paradise

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay in Antigua at Casa del Oasis. The view of the volcanoes is breathtaking. Everything we were promised we received from Greg and Judy. We could not have been any happier with the home; the pictures don't do it justice. Denis the property manager is very helpful with any question you may have. Angelica is a great cook and very nice! We would recommend this home to friends and family! We felt very safe and comfortable during our stay, they thought about everything to make that happen. The home is well decorated which brings out the culture of Antigua.

An Island of Serenity in a Sea of Tranquility

  • 5 of 5
Casa Oasis is situated a few easily walkable blocks from the central square in La Antigua, yet this distance provides for a quiet retreat. All town services are easily accessible. Security is excellent with voice/camera contact to secure front gate. There is available off-street parking, garage attached to villa. The property manager lives just across the street, itself a tranquil, gated cul de sac, a further remove from city street. The pictures of the villa's interior are truthful, although the total reality is somehow better; that most rare case where indeed the " the whole is greater than the sum of its parts."

Wifi is strong thought the structure, including the interior courtyard. For English speakers, cable TV provides CNN and BBC, and US news on a Miami station. The kitchen is complete, having all the service necessary to a large group. The washer and dry, off the maid 's quarters, are new. The bedrooms and baths are commodious, the master bedroom and bath, on the second story, superb, with a delightful balcony, overlooking the inner courtyard, that is suitable for a morning coffee, afternoon glass of wine, or simply for sitting and reading or gazing at the surrounding hills. All the windows have screens. There is rooftop access that includes seating, volcano views, and a hot tub for two.

The courtyard, complete with fountain, and side garden have well tended, green lawns, visited in these climes by hummingbirds and butterflies. The maid Angelica and the gardener Abelino do a superb job of maintaining the property.

I have travelled extensively throughout Hispanic America, and having rented many apartments and casas for extended stays, I warrant this property to be my best choice, whether for a couple who simply enjoy the ambience of a full house or for a family or group of friends who likewise will find roomy yet private quarters at Casa Oasis.

This villa evidences touches of a genuine home, carefully and thoughtfully prepared by the owners. If you should decide to make it "your home" for period, you will come away afterward most satisfied with your choice. ( Duration of our stay: Two months )

Perfect for a group!

  • 5 of 5
A group of friends and myself were lucky enough to be able to stay at Casa del Oasis November 24th - December 2nd and it was nothing short of amazing! We were able to spend the majority of our evenings when we weren't out exploring. The home is also an extremely short walk Parque Central & Mercado, perfect location!

BEAUTIFUL, relaxing Antigua home

  • 5 of 5
This house is amazing. The private courtyard is lush and the perfect place to spend an afternoon. The upstairs deck is lovely for breakfast coffee and watching the sunrise with views of 3 volcanoes - including active Fuego. Love the private bathrooms for many of the bedrooms.
Easy walk into town! At night - simple to get a tuk tuk!

Wonderful Large Home in Antigua

  • 5 of 5
A gaggle of friends flew into Antigua and met here to celebrate a wedding. While the wedding was not here, this home was a great place to stay for the 10 days most of us were in Guatemala. From having on-site laundry, a housekeeper, gardener, and a very accommodating caretaker the home is a great place to stay while exploring Antigua. Thanks for everything!!

Beautiful in every way

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the beautiful Casa del Oasis was absolutely perfect. We came as a large group of friends to Guatemala, and this home suited our needs perfectly - with access to a kitchen we could cook for ourselves if needed, and the amazing courtyard offered a perfect spot for socializing. Bonus: we all had our own rooms and bathrooms...! The house is close to the market and an easy walk to Parque Central and everything Antigua, and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. All in all, I'd say we were well taken care of - thank you so much!!
