This home offers a beautiful and comfortable way to enjoy Antigua, the former capital of the Spanish empire in Central America. Antigua Is a UN designated World Heritage Site.

About Sam Cave

We are a retired couple from Minnesota.

Sam Cave purchased this house in 2007

Why Sam Cave chose Guatemala

We chose to buy our winter home (winter in Minnesota)in Antigua because of the perfect weather. Antigua provides a great place to live. It is safe and has lots of amenities, yet provides easy access to the villages and other cities of Guatemala. Antigua provides a respite from the harsher conditions under which many Guatemalans live. We participate with and often act as dinner hosts to educational and mercy groups that come to Antigua before, after, or during their projects.

What makes this house unique

We love to take breakfast on the corridor beside the garden. We often have an evening meal or snack and glass of wine while watching Volcano Fuego spout off or watching the clouds passing Volcano Agua from our second floor patio.

A great place! Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly impressed with this home and highly recommend without reservation. It was large, clean, and aesthetically pleasing at every turn. Loved the indoor courtyard and the second story view of the volcano. Locked entrance and security guards made us feel very safe while , at the same time, we were very near the central square and could easily walk everywhere. Finally, the owner and property manager helped us secure overnight transportation services and also taxi service to and from the airport (mucho gracias!). We loved every day of our visit and our stay at this property is now has a treasured place in our memories.

My THIRD stay at the Cave's place

  • 5 of 5

The house is right. The location is right. The price is right. The caretaker, maid and gardener are right. The beautiful view of the volcanoes from the deck is right. The bottom line: It's a great place to stay ... you can't go wrong!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I we're blow away by the beauty of this house. The rooftop view of volcanos, the bougainvillea flowering down the open courtyard from the open sky, the architecture, and design. Very comfortable and we had everything needed in this casa. Host and staff were very helpful and discovering Guatemala and its people was a joyful experience.

Antigua Gem

  • 5 of 5

This generously sized house does indeed have everything you need. Very comfortable home in a secure guarded community. Great views of the volcanoes from the upper level terrace. Walking distance to Antigua's central plaza, artisan market, and central market. Great for visitors without cars. We'd love to return and wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

Sam's place is simply AMAZING! I was caught breathless as I entered this beautiful home with cascading flowering vines, ferns, tiles and a gorgeous open garden, all within the walls of the house. Everything you need to make yourself at home. Washer and dryer, great internet, cable TV. Views of the volcanoes, safe relaxing nooks to enjoy the blue sky or starlit night. The guards 24 hour presence , provided a secure, comforting stay. We walked or took a tuk tuk, the couple blocks to the market or the nearby central park. Sam is so genuine. It was comforting to know we were in the home of a fellow Minnesotan! This would be my FIRST choice when returning to Antigua.
