My partner and I stayed for 3 nights in September 2010 all i can say is that the place is to die for! The house is simply stunning, it is immaculately clean, the cleaning lady is great and the location is brilliant. Will definately be recommending this house to friends and family.

“Encantador!”
Reviewed November 3, 2010 for a stay in October 2010

Estuvimos ocupando el 9 de octubre la casa de Philippa Myers en la Caldelaria, en la ciudad de la Antigua Guatemala. NUestra experiencia fue INCREIBLEMENTE ENCANTADORA. La casa tiene una belleza colonial increible, lindos muebles, un jardin precioso y una vista desde la terraza a los volcanes y a la ciudad que no deja de sorprender. Tuvimos una pequeña reunion familiar por la tarde, y cada uno de los invitados estuvieron sorprendidos y encantados con la casa. Tiene todas la comodidades para una estadia gradable, tanto en habitaciones como en cocina, limpieza. Es muy facil de localizar ya que esta a solo unas cuadras de la entrada principal de la ciudad y en un are bastante tranquila.

“Has it all-location, views, comfort, atmosphere”
Reviewed October 30, 2010 for a stay in November 2009

My husband and stayed in this lovely home in 2009. We were so delighted with the home, the surroundings and Antigua in general that we returned to the same complex this year and bought a building lot around the corner!

Everything about this house exudes a sense of home and hospitality. Handicrafts and textiles give just the right touch to well considered and placed furniture. In addition to roomy private bedrooms, a generous sized living room and dining room, there is a small, cheery office that houses the wi-fi and a library with numerous books to read. The layout worked very well whether it was just the two of us or when we had several house guests.

One of the best aspects of staying in this house was the daily maid service provided by Clara. Clara is not only a super housekeeper, she is an excellent cook. Time permitting in her own schedule and for a modest fee, Clara can be persuaded to take you under her wing and give you a cooking lesson. We made some yummy dishes and had lots of fun.

This house is definitely a winner. Do not hesitate to stay here; if you have any questions, the English speaking owner is more than happy to help. We will be beginning our own construction soon and are very near Casa #14. Perhaps we will see you there! Kathy Rose and Hal Vogel 2010

“An Oasis”
Reviewed October 2, 2010 for a stay in April 2010

"We stayed at this lovely house and had a wonderful experience. The house is everything you see in the photos, but better. It was clean, and the staff took very good care of us. There is a book that gives you many good ideas of things to do, and a small library of books if you just want to sit on the patio to read, watch the volcano and listen to the birds" Recommended for: Girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway.

"If you want to feel like you have found paradise, you will really enjoy staying at this lovely place. Be it with your family, or shared with friends, it is truly a place that you will enjoy and feel special. This home has many special qualities. There is the view of the volcano from the balcony, and the spacious quiet accommodations, just to name a few. It is just a short walk to the market or the center of Antigua. There many things to do and see in town and close by to, rest, play, visit and learn of the history of Guatemala. Antigua offers a historic city with global restaurants to fit anyone's appetite.

Our surgical mission team shared staying here over the Easter Holidays 2010. The celebrations were spectacular and after a week of working hard to care for our patients, this house was an oasis for us, as we prepared to journey back to Minnesota."

“Fabulous villa in gorgeous location”
Reviewed October 1, 2010 for a stay in November 2009

"I spent a week in this beautiful villa with my adult son, daughter and my daughter's friend. The pictures do not begin to do it justice: it is a truly lovely home with local art on the walls and in special niches, good bed linens, a fully-equipped kitchen, high speed Internet, beautiful views from the balconies...! The layout was perfect for our group--my son had a bedroom and bath downstairs, I had a room and bath at one end of the upstairs hallway, and the girls each had a bedroom and shared a bath at the other end. The gated facility made us feel very secure (although there was nothing about Antigua that made me feel insecure--day or night). The housekeeper is a charming woman and Gustavo tended to our every need and responded quickly to any little emergency--a tv remote that didn't work, etc... The location is a long block to the main commercial street, and the artisans' market, and about 6 blocks from Central Park --Parque Central. Antiqua is a must-see destination. In my mind, it ranks with Prague as a beautiful and romantic destination. The citizens are most gracious and will speak to you in Spanish if you are able, but most also speak enough English to get by if your Spanish fails you. I have rented many vrbo properties around the world and this one certainly is among the best! I recommend it without hesitation or reservation. One caution about visiting Antigua if you require wheelchair accessibility: the roads and sidewalks are so bumpy that they can be difficult even for someone who has no physical challenges. Everyone should bring sturdy walking shoes. Flip flops present a hazard. Our favorite restaurants include: Frida's, La Fonda de la Calle Real, Cafe Contessa, Rainbow Cafe for breakfast/lunch(co-located with the travel agency that we used for all of bookings, and a bookstore), and Cafe Dona Luisa (sit upstairs near the window for a volcano view). Also Panza Verde for its ambience and good, though not local, food. Finally: bring mosquito repellent. There are not a lot of them, but the ones that live
