Vacation Rental Description
The beautiful Spanish colonial villa was designed and furnished by an artist. The property is set into the mountainside of the extinct Volcan de Agua and looks out over the rolling hills and valley below and two other volcanoes. Surrounded by farmland with compesinos walking their burrows to the fields, the property is a refuge from the bustle of urban life. Birds serenade the sunrise. 
 
Within the walled compound is one other home in addition to the guard/doorman and his wife who cleans the house three days a week (additional maid service can be arranged). A full time gardener tends the magnificent gardens where you can stroll and pick flowers to fill the house. The second floor is dedicated to the master bedroom suite with dressing room and bath, beautiful views and hammocks on covered terraces. The two bedrooms on the ground floor share a bathroom between them which also serves as the guest bathroom. 
 
I just built a beautiful wood fired sauna that seats 8 people or two people can lie down on the long benches. When you step outside, there is a cold shower. We have been having sauna parties and have friends over to relax and then have supper together. 
 
My four footed companion, Barley, a 7 year old German Shepherd who is very gentle and well behaved goes on walks with me and renters throughout the countryside. He quickly bonds with adults and children alike and often ends up being the favorite of young visitors. 
 
All year round one eats outside on the terraces by the cascading fountain. Downtown Antigua with its restaurants, sites and night life is only 10 minutes away by car. A four wheel drive mini-SUV is included in the rental for an additional $250 per month or $75 per week. 
 
Please check the availability calendar before contacting me as my place is usually rented months in advance.

Campesinos go by with their burros and bundles of sticks on their heads. It is 500 meters walk to the town of Ciudad Vieja and a 6 mile drive to Antigua. The best shopping is in Antigua, but you can buy things locally as well.  

Travel Options
  • Travel Info: The property is 6 miles from the center of Antigua on the edge of the town of Ciudad Vieja (ie you can walk into town which about 500 bmeters away. This is a more modest "pueblo", virtually no foreigners here so you get a sense of how the Guatemalans live. There are street festivals often, parades and gatherings in the street though the shopping isn’t as good as at the market in Antigua.

Beautiful and relaxing house

Guest ... (Flores, Guatemala)
Date of stay 09/30/13
Review Submitted 01/02/14

Catherine house was a very relaxing place to stay. We were lucky to be able to stay at the house before and after the delivery of my baby girl helping me and my husband to be tranquil and get prepared for the great day, with the beautiful views of the volcanoes and the countryside, and with the special presence of the two charmy and clam dogs (Barley and Kaira) who accompanied us for long walks which helped me a lot. Catherine and her employees were always available during our stay at her house, they always were accessible for any questions that we had. I really really recommend to stay in that magical and spectacular house. I know that you will not regret it.

A luxurious villa surrounded by breathtaking countryside

Guest Maresole (St. Louis, MO)
Date of stay 07/27/13
Review Submitted 12/20/13

This villa and its surroundings are even more beautiful and peaceful than the pictures reflect. It is large, but feels cozy (the fireplaces are perfect) and elegant, with a rustic touch. It can serve as the perfect escape from the world (I arrived solo), a romantic getaway, or family home base while traveling. It is extremely safe and private. It offers amazing views and nearby paths to walk the countryside. The best view might be from the master bath tub, which you will use often. If you are looking for a luxurious stay in the Guatemalan countryside (but not far from Antigua), this is the place. I would pay twice as much to stay here!

Paradise!

Guest Meg (Berkeley, California)
Date of stay 04/03/12
Review Submitted 05/29/12

Congratulations, reader! You have just discovered one of those treasures that can transform your vacation from a "nice trip" into an unforgettable experience! My family just spent six wonderful weeks in this lovely home and every day of our stay was such a pleasure. Words can't describe the beautiful location, spectacular views and gorgeous grounds. The house is meticulously maintained by the very gracious and helpful staff and Barley, the lovable resident dog is a totally charming host. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and it is great fun to explore the local markets and then return home to cook up a Guatemalan feast and enjoy it on one of the many pretty patios! Having access to a car was a great advantage and we really enjoyed getting to know Ciudad Vieja, Antigua and other nearby villages. The owner was unfailingly helpful, providing great information and going "above and beyond" by generously arranging airport transport and assisting us in finding child care services. Book this amazing property now! You'll be treating yourself to a truly delightful adventure and, if you're like us, your first stay won't be your last one.

Absolutely Fantastic

Guest Jeff (Colorado Springs)
Date of stay 06/01/11
Review Submitted 09/19/11

My family stayed in this beautiful home for 2 and a half months during the summer of 2011, and all of our expectations were exceeded. The home is away from the tourist hustle and bustle of Antigua but close enough to drive in to shop and enjoy a nice meal. Our favorite part of the home was sitting out on the deck at night and watching lava explode from the Acatenanco volcano. The house is comfortable and the gardens are absolutely fantastic. Although the house is away from it all and in the middle of the Guatemalan farms, we felt safe and well cared-for by the onsite staff. We would definitely stay in Catherine's home again. Thanks for a great summer!

Wayne & Constance

Guest Wayne & Constance (Live in Arizona - Work in Afghanistan)
Date of stay 05/17/11
Review Submitted 07/29/11

My wife, Constance and I stayed at Catherines lovely home for a week in May 2011. We found it a wonderful home - spacious, comfortable, great views, quiet and a architectural pleasure. It is a two story, five level home that is of superior construction with wonderful landscaping. The setting is out in the country in the middle of a plantation. It is situated inside an enclosed compound with two other homes, and there should be no concerns for your safety or your personal items you leave in the house while touring the area. The setting is on a hilltop with views of the countryside including two volcanoes. It is a little off the beaten track, but once found gives one the opportunity to enjoy the country, but is an easy drive into Antiqua with its many restaurants and shopping. We enjoyed going to town to be typical tourists, but looked forward to getting back out to the country to enjoy the leisurely time spent there. I spent a great deal of time just walking with the dog (Barley) along the landscaped walkways aroung the house. We had our own rental car, but the option to pay a little more to use the house car is very reasonable. The house is located near the village of Ciudad Vieja, an historic town near to Antiqua. The access road to the house is a little primitive, but well worth the effort as you will see when you enter the compound and drive up the hill to the home at the top. We look forward to returning at some time in the future. We found Catherine to be kind and most informative. There is a 24 hour guard and a day gardener to give any assistance needed. You will enjoy your stay at this lovely home.

Spectacular Mountainside Villa Near Antigua

Guest Andrée L. (Montreal, Quebec, Canada)
Date of stay 12/25/07
Review Submitted 09/21/10

We stayed in that spectacular house several times and just the view and setting would be worth the detour. It has without a doubt the very best view and sunsets in Antigua, visible from everywhere on the property (and particularly from the master bedroom bathtub!). The garden is gorgeous and the ever-present "guardian" and his family make sure that you are attended whenever you may need it. Besides being away from the hustle-bustle of central Antigua, you have access to all the surrounding mountain paths, great for hiking or walking the dog. One of the house's bonuses is its permanent resident: Barley, an adorable, affectionate and smart German shepherd who'll make friends with you in no time.

Our Private Palace

Guest Alex (Boston, MA)
Date of stay 06/01/09
Review Submitted 09/18/10

This house is paradise. My girlfriend and I rented the house - along with the car for a month - and it was perfect. The upstairs bathtub is incredible - surrounded in glass and looking out over a volcano. The gardens are immaculate and beautiful. Plants cascade down from the terrace and with the doors open in the early evening, we could hardly draw a line where the outside ended and the inside began. The location is wonderful. You are completely safe and secure in the walled and guarded compound, and Antigua is only a 15 minute car ride away. The market there is wonderful. We spent many mornings filling out shopping bags with fresh fruits and vegetables and the afternoons cooking and relaxing at the house - listing to music, watching the sunset, and sipping wine in our private garden palace. The house is huge. We had friends come and visit from the states and, with the 3 bedrooms, we comfortably slept 6 people. If you want the peace and tranquility of the mountains but to have the urban splendor of historic Antigua at your fingertips, this beautiful house is a perfect choice for your vacation. We are already planning our return visit.
