Description from owner

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.

There is a separate 'guest' wing with two bedrooms and a bathroom in between. A back patio with table and chairs as well as a outdoor dining area on the protected veranda overlooking the stepped fountain.

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.
