About Vince DeGarlais
As background, I built the home about ten years ago in a gated community in back of the Iglesia Santa Lucia and lived there full-time with my labrador retriever until very recently. I have a small project in an indigenous village near Parramos, Chimaltenango and built another house there to avoid the commute. I nonetheless consider the house my home and am very particular with who we have accepted and will accept for rentals. My neighbors are still my neighbors and never would want them to be inconvenienced with a "party house" or loud neighbors next door. Similarly, I would consider you more as a guest than a tenant. The home is well-appointed with my personal furniture and keepsakes that I have purchased through the years. You will not encounter the cheap and uncomfortable furnishings of most rentals. If you decide to rent the home, we would insist that you are respectful of the neighbors and the home's contents. If you meet this profile, I truly believe that you have uncovered a beautiful home in which you can enjoy your stay in Antigua.

Home Sweet Home
Superb Accommodation. Host a nice guy. The condo is a mini castle. All 3 bedrooms have en-suite bath. Roof top terrace with flowers and a covered pergola for morning coffee while viewing smokes emanating from the volcano El Fuego. The architecture of this place is quite stunning. So many places to sit and relax. The bank is one block away. Each person can cash up to $500 a month with proper identification. The market is about 4 blocks away. The housekeeper comes twice a week. She does not speak any English but with some gestures, you will do just fine. If you need to get in touch with the owner, he is just a phone call away. If you need a taxi, just ask one of the friendly security guards to call one for you. If you need a local tour guide, Vince, the owner, might be able to recommend one for you…she knows her stuff. Whenever we return to Antigua, Guatemala this will be our home away from home. Thank you Vince for everything.
Excellent stay. Wifi a bit weak but everything g else was great! Lovely home. I would not hesitate to stay again!
The VRBO was beautiful. The owner gave us all information needed prior to arrival making the check in process very smooth and easy. All pictures and descriptions were accurate and we would love to stay here again!
The place is even more charming in person than the pictures suggest, and the second floor deck gives you a view of the three volcanoes that are close to Antigua, namely Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango. Every night we spent there, we would see Fuego's peak periodically redden, and every morning we'd wake up to have coffee while gazing up at Agua. The property is also within a few blocks from all the action in Antigua. Lovely.
The house was even better than the pictures. A lot of space. Very safe and close to town. Good communication with the owner.
Lovely house with great views
Beautiful and comfortable house in a very picturesque neighborhood at Antigua. House has a very inviting and relaxing balcony with great views. Owner was very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend the property.
The property is located in Residenciales Ermita Santa Lucia, a gated community in back of the Iglesia Santa Lucia. There are two guards assigned to the property at all times and guests must check in at the front entrance.
