This gorgeous modern home very centrally located in a secure gated compound is the perfect base for exploring all that Antigua has to offer. The breathtaking sunsets and volcano views from the terrace are priceless. Newly remodeled, this house combines colonial charm with luxury in every detail.
Location is everything, especially in and around Antigua, and this location can't be beat. The neighborhood of Espiritu Santo is tranquil and quiet, yet close enough to walk to everything that Antigua has to offer. The artisan and fruits and vegetable markets are only 2 blocks away. Walk to central park in 10 minutes or less, the grocery store in 5.
Although Antigua is generally safe, one can never be too cautious. Choosing a location inside a gated community with 24 hour security helps ensure your family or group's personal safety throughout your stay. Rest assured that the helpful security staff is always on guard, 24 hours a day.
This is our family home so it is fully equipped with all that you will need to enjoy a week, a month, or more. The large downstairs living and dining area is tastefully decorated and boasts a cozy fireplace for those chilly winter nights, stylish and comfortable furniture, and a spacious dining area for large family meals. Picture windows with beautiful wood accents illuminate the living space with loads of natural light, and open to the flower-filled garden and patio, with comfortable wicker outdoor furniture and a gas BBQ grill. The living area communicates with the large, all-new luxury kitchen, fully equipped with all appliances and utensils. It's a chef's dream. The island breakfast bar with 4 stools is a great place to chat while cooking or to have breakfast. Off the kitchen, an outdoor covered dining area in the flower-filled garden provides another option for dining or socializing.
Also off the kitchen, toward the back entrance of the house, you will find the pantry and laundry area as well as a small 4th bedroom and office area. This bonus bedroom can also be used for a single guest. The desk makes a good place to catch up on a little work. Unlimited high speed DSL with WIFI is provided.
The three spacious bedrooms are located upstairs. The master bedroom looks and feels like a 5-star hotel suite. The vaulted wood ceilings with recessed lighting, a large fireplace and the king-sized bed make it a romantic and luxurious haven. The large in-suite bathroom boasts an enormous double shower with two heads, a rarity in Guatemala. But best of all, the master suite opens to a delightful terrace with amazing views of all three of Antigua's surrounding vocanoes. Sunsets from here are divine. It is the perfect spot to sip your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. And the new jacuzzi tub makes it the most romantic spot in the house!!
A second bedroom has two single beds, bunk beds which can be separated. A third bedroom has a queen bed and a futon sofa which also converts to another queen bed. The bed configuration can be rearranged to suit, and allows for two families with children to vacation together. Both bedrooms have plenty of natural light and closet space. Another large bathroom services these two bedrooms.
The gated community itself houses 10 town houses inhabited mostly by friendly ex-pats and families. Ours is one of two free-standing homes (not connected to another house). We are a family of four with two small children who spends many months of the year outside Antigua. The house is very well suited to families with children or groups, and really feels like a home. There are some children's books and toys available for guest use. The space outside the house but inside the gated compound is a great place for kids to play or ride bikes/ skateboards, etc (which we can also arrange to leave available).
It is a joy to vacation in a house with all the conveniences of home, but it might not feel like a vacation if you end up cooking and cleaning the whole time you are there. An incredible perk included with this house is our faithful and amazing full-time housekeeper, Maria. She can even spend the night to babysit for a small additional fee. She will clean the house and do your laundry daily, go to the market to buy your fresh fruits and vegetables, and even cook you meals if you wish. She is honest and genuine and everyone loves her. She makes the you feel at home and like you are really on vacation.
Enjoy the extensive selection of English-language channels including the premium movie channels on a large flat screen TV with DVD. Quoted prices include cable TV, electricity, water, phone and unlimited high-speed DSL with WIFI, and of course the full time housekeeper. There are no additional taxes, fees, or surcharges to surprise you.
A bilingual house manager will greet you to show you all features of the house and will be your contact to assist you throughout your stay. We can arrange your transport from the airport and any tours you might want to make in and around Antigua or throughout the country during your stay.

We are a family of 4, including two boys ages 9 and 12. We love our house and our neighborhood and wouldn't even consider living elsewhere in Antigua. You shouldn't either!
Micky Morrison purchased this house in 2006
Antigua offers a rich cultural experience and many amazing sights. We think it is the most interesting and beautiful place on the planet. We are in heaven there.
After the major remodel just completed in April 2015, I can say in all confidence that this is one of the nicest homes in Antigua!
Great location, security and nice neighbors. The romantic master bedroom suite is like a 5-star hotel suite with the fireplace, jacuzzi on the terrace and the enormous double shower.
Our family of four, including two young children, had a great experience staying at this home in Antiqua. The home was a great fit for us in every way, including the location, home layout and condition, and even the neighbors. We enjoyed the company and service of Maria around the house and the security of the gated compound while enjoying the grounds. Our kids spent many hours outside playing with children of the neighboring families. The owner provided great service during the entire transaction. She provided plenty of info on local attractions and dining and even made our airport transfer very easy by helping to set up reliable transportation. What I'll miss the most are the crisp mornings with fresh local coffee on the upstairs balcony with the views of the surrounding volcanos, what a sight! Micky, you have a wonderful home, thank you for sharing it with our family! We will be back!
This house is perfectly located, right by the market and a short walk to the centre of Antigua. The house is cozy and comfortable with everything you need (from kitchen utensils to extra blankets). It is in a gated community and the neighbors are all really welcoming and kind which makes a big difference. We have 2 boys and they were always outside on their bikes.
Sandra comes everyday to do the house keeping and is always willing to help. All-in-all a great house in a great location with everything you need to enjoy your stay.
We have lived and stayed in many houses, apartments and hotels in Antigua over the years. This house was by far our best experience. The safe, friendly, gated community was a dream with two small children who had plenty of room to play and I never had to worry about their safety. The proximity to town and the market made it so easy to run out for anything we might need and to take casual morning or afternoon walks to explore without having to do a lot of planning of our day. The house itself is so comfortable and spacious and everything we needed was there- WiFi, TV, nice beds, great kitchen, large living room and incredible views of the volcano that changed throughout the day- just gorgeous. Marta is incredibly helpful and great with the kids. It was such a treat to be able to go out to dinner knowing that they were safe and well taken care of. Also, the owners were a dream to work with. We will definitely be back any chance we get!
Excellent location and gorgeous house! Close enough to walk to absolutely everything but the location and gated compound means it's very quiet and tranquil. And having a coffee on your own terrace with a view of the volcanoes cannot be beat! Best of both worlds!
The actual house itself is lovely, with a massive living room with a fire place. Also loved the garden, the perfect place to while away a lazy afternoon reading a book. And of course, Marta is an absolute treasure and will take care of everything you need.
Highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a place to stay in Antigua.
I stayed at this beautiful home during Semana Santa this year, I couldn't have asked for more. Antigua is of course utterly stunning, and to be based in such a fantastic location gave me the freedom to really make the most of my time there. Close enough to walk to everywhere you would want to go, grocery stores near by, wonderful restaurants, cafes, the fabulous mercardo, lady who teaches Salsa round the corner..10/15 minute walk to Parque Central.. so a great spot to be based but the best bit is its also peaceful and set back enough to have quiet time if you need it so you get the best of both worlds! I loved having my morning coffee out on the balcony soaking up the sunshine reading my book and sketching, and the house is lovely and cool (but not at all cold) when it gets too hot outside! I slept in the master bedroom the bed was wonderfully comfortable, the house is in nice condition, lovely and clean, great outside area down stairs for having a vino or two in the evenings.. I had a fantastic time and highly recommend the place!
This house is close to everything has to offer... The artisan market is only 2 blocks away, the central park is a 10 minute walk, walk to many of Antigua's finest restaurants in 10 minutes or less, several Spanish schools are within a few blocks as well.
