Antigua's Hidden Secret:
Located just 6 blocks from the Central Square & 2 blocks from the Central Market, this beautifully decorated colonial style home is located in an authentic, friendly neighborhood, and comes fully-equipped with all first-world amenities (broadband internet, cable/satellite TV) and the old world charms (open fireplaces, wooden ceiling beams, beautiful shared garden, courtyard and picturesque swimming pool). The home also comes with a housekeeper, who comes daily from Mon-Sat to clean. For a small additional charge, she will cook delicious meals for you and your family and friends during your stay.
Enjoy the heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi/Hot tub set in the beautiful and tranquil courtyard, surrounded by lush vegetation.

We also offer a concierge and travel service, where we can help arrange your transportation needs throughout your stay with us.
For those of you ‘Chefs’ who enjoy cooking, the house comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, However, if you feel like taking some time off from the kitchen, our wonderful cook, for an additional fee, can create delicious homemade delights to suit all taste buds. This, plus babysitting, if you wish to sample the multitude of restaurants in Antigua, can be easily arranged by our wonderful house manager, Paola,
We provide our guests with extensive notes on what to do, our favourite restaurants, our favourite places to visit, doctor's contacts etc...
Upon booking a 5 night minimum stay, you receive a 1 free night at our property in Lake Atitlan!
Availabilities for this beautiful colonial home can quickly become limited, so it is suggested you book early. When booking you may want to also consider booking a deep-sea fishing trip, golf outing, or a trip to Tikal or Lake Atitlan, we would be happy to help you with organizing this for you.
Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage City, is the most visited city in Central America. It is centrally located in Guatemala making it easy to take short trips to other popular destinations like Lake Atitlan, Chichicastenango, the Pacific and Caribbean coasts, and Tikal. Known as the "land of the eternal spring", Antigua has a humidity-free average temperature of 75 degrees all year round with cool comfortable evenings, so there is never a bad time to visit.
One week prior to arrival, we send you an email with the code to a lockbox, which contains the master key for the front door, so you can just let yourself in and arrive at the time that is convenient to you, after check-in time.
*We provide you with extensive notes on what to do in Antigua, and our favorite trips and restaurants. I have been involved in the travel industry for over 28 years, so do not hesitate to ask us anything :)
*The main courtyard with the heated pool and hot tub is shared by 5 other homes. It is a wonderful sunny spot. We close the pool area at 9:30pm to respect the noise level of other guests.
Please note that our homes are for FAMILY USE only :)
We have our Manager, Paola, in Antigua, who is there to help you with any dinner reservations, or to tell our about our favorite places to visit. However, we will very much leave you to enjoy the privacy you deserve. If you want to meet fellow travelers, then hang out by the pool next door, which is shared with 4 other homes.
From Britain, but spent my entire adult life in Guatemala, working in the tourism industry. I am now living in the Twin Cities, and trained as an addiction counselor. Very much miss Guatemala, but Paola, our lovely House manager is onsite to help you with one of our rentals. Do give us a call.... We appreciate any opportunity to be able to talk about Guatemala...the land of eternal Spring.
