La Jacaranda suite at Casa Ocho (See our other listings for more availability) This is our largest rental. It’s not a simple hotel suite – it’s a fully furnished home away from home. La Jacaranda is a two-story townhouse featuring a double-height, open-plan living and dining area; two full bedrooms and a full private bath in the second story loft; and a full kitchen that’s a unique combination of traditional Antigua style and modern sensibility. You will love staying here and have your morning coffee on the large second-story balcony that overlooks both the private courtyard gardens and lush neighborhood parks beyond the walls of our compound, with the volcanoes Fuego and Acatenango setting a simply unbelievable backdrop in the distance. ___ Whether you are coming to Antigua to learn Span...La Jacaranda suite at Casa Ocho (See our other listings for more availability) This is our largest rental.

About the neighborhood
Short and long term rentals available in the most prestigious gated community in Antigua in an Architect-built colonial private home surrounded by beautiful parks, fountains, promenades and tennis courts. Where colonial meets modern: Recently built home (2009) in the Barroque Mudejar architecture typical of the early colonial era, yet with the commodities and appliances for modern lifestyle. Close enough to Central Park (Plaza Mayor) that you could have your morning coffee at Condessa or the many boutique coffee shops in the area every morning, yet when you are at home, you will feel a world away in a relaxing atmosphere. Check out our web site or send us a message for more information.
How to get there
Take only airport-approved taxis (cost is about $35 to $40) or you we can come pick you up for $50 and bring you home to Casa Ocho.
