Overview

Guatemala House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8) with lovely Volcano (s) view

Beautiful Casa Bella is located just four blocks from Parque Central in Antigua and only two blocks from the main artisans and food markets. The house sits in a gated/guarded community and is only 10 years old. The colonial style, lovely antiques and fun art work add to the charm of this unique house, which includes all the conveniences of home.

The two large bedrooms upstairs share a spacious master bathroom with shower and tub. The master bedroom has a queen bed, large walk-in closet and front and back patios. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be made into a king. It also has a large walk-in closet and a beautiful view of the volcanoes, one of which is active and can often be seen burping out smoke. (see the 2nd video!)

The bedrooms open on to a covered patio and large rooftop patio. Enjoy the garden below, the potted plants & porch swing, while gazing at the magnificent and ever-changing sky around Volcan Agua to the south. This view is stunning!

The two downstairs bedrooms have the same bed configurations as the two upstairs, except they each have their own bathrooms with walk-in showers. These bedrooms share access to a beautiful back garden and a lush central garden with a pila fountain.

All bedding is 100% cotton. Each bed is provided with a light and fluffy natural down comforter.

Garden and hanging plants surround the patios along with tasteful art and colonial antiques. The indoor-outdoor living is easy to get accustomed to, as the mild year round temperatures invite the visitor into the fresh sun shining air.There are cozy couches on the patio and table and chairs, making it easy to transition from indoors to outdoor living.

The kitchen is fully equipped and has a small colonial dining table for four. There is a large dining room (seats eight) and living room with couches and seating designed for relaxation. The style is elegant, yet Casa Bella still has a down home comfort feel. It is imbued with an atmosphere of color, light, openness, and beauty. This is a truly wonderful house to escape to!

The housekeeper cares for Casa Bella Monday-Friday: makes the beds, cleans the bathrooms and maintains the casa. Her devoted attention to the tile floors keeps them fresh and looking like works of art! The house is also child-friendly, with baby changing tables, baby gates, and high chairs.

ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (husband, teenage son, and 65 year-old mom) stayed at this beautiful home in Antigua for a week and everything was absolutely perfect! The home is very clean, spacious, well organized, and decorated to perfection with special attention to every detail. Wherever I sat in the home, I enjoyed seeing how every photo, knick knack, furniture, etc., had a purpose and flowed so beautifully with the decoration theme of the entire house. The inside garden is lush and was in full bloom during our stay. I enjoyed waking up early to the tranquil sounds of birds flying around the gardens as we drank our coffee. Julio, the gardener, does an excellent job keeping the garden looking its best. The home also includes a wonderful housekeeper, Virginia, who is excellent. Our days were busy seeing the sights, so it was always nice to return at the end of the day to a clean home. Virginia also offers separate cooking services ~ She is a GREAT cook! The home is located within a gated community surrounded by lovely landscape and brick roads. Everything is within walking distance. There is a lot to see in Antigua. Hotel Santo Domingo is a must see. We have rented about ten vacation homes in the last several years, but Casa Bella has been the nicest of all the homes we've ever rented, hands down. I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Antigua. We will certainly stay at Casa Bella again on our next visit to Antigua.

QUIET RESPITE in ANTIGUA

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I used this beautiful home as a base the week before our daughter's wedding in Antiqua. We had a busy week of activities prior to the wedding. We were there basically to sleep and organize gift baskets. We had guests arrive for three of the nights and they enjoyed the place too. Although, we weren't relaxing in this home, it would be perfect place to enjoy the lovely surroundings. The kitchen was the most equipped of any vacation rental we have ever stayed in. The owner provided a nice handbook and it was obvious she had spent a lot of effort on this. Owner wants to ensure that your every question is answered. We paid the housekeeper in advance of our stay to procure some fresh seafood from the seller who come to the complex every Monday. So, when we arrived late on Monday night, we had a delicious meal prepared. The table was nicely set too. It is very safe location and everything was within walking distance. The home has lots of interesting artwork, comfortable furnishings and a beautiful garden area. You can see the three volcanos from the rooftop terrace which form a lovely backdrop. The owner has a wonderful contact of a capable and pleasant driver that speaks english. You won't be disappointed if you rent this home. When I come back the next time I hope to relax and enjoy the surroundings.....

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week at Casa Bella in Antigua. The house is immaculately kept with beautiful gardens throughout and so much natural light. We were a family of four and had more than enough room to lounge together as well as privately. The rooftop deck off the master suite is the perfect setting for a full view of the agua volcano with your morning coffee.

I would highly recommend this beautiful home to anyone wanting to stay within walking distance to town who is looking for a home away from home. It is in a secure gated community near the artists markets, restaurants and more.

Our only issue was having to leave. :)

Our wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

9 of us friends and family stayed in Casa Bella for two weeks. It far exceeded expectations. The place is so charming with wonderful artwork everywhere. Lots of outdoor space with upstairs patio and downstairs courtyard. The kitchen was fully equipped and the high quality of construction made for an impeccably, well functioning house. The location is ideal, in central Antiqua yet in a private complex that's safe and quiet. And the maid that comes with the deal is really sweet and responsive. This was a hell of a deal for the modest price. If you choose to just hangout at the house, its still worth the trip to Antigua!

Best place to stay in Antigua!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely perfect time at Casa Bella. Honestly, it is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. The house is so incredibly comfortable and beautifully decorated. It is just a few blocks to the market, and we cooked most of our meals in the well-stocked kitchen. I can't wait to go back to Antigua, and don't want to stay anywhere but Casa Bella!

wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella is a beautiful home with everything a visitor to Antigua might need. We stayed there one month with 3 teenage grandchildren who really appreciated the home, the maid service and the location. The owner is extremely helpful and easy to deal with. We don't think there is a better rental in Antiqua.
