“Charming home, convenient location, along with helpful hosts”
First let me say that we could not have found more gracious and helpful hosts than Carlos and Nancy. Nancy met us at the airport and drove us the house in antigua, answering our whole myriad of questions along the way. After showing us around the house, she went with us to lunch at one of her favorite local restaurants near the market. (It became our go to breakfast place). When you are in a foreign country and speak very little of the language, it is so beneficial to have help just a phone call away. As for the house, there was everything we needed in a "typical" colonial style home. Views from the terrace are all everyone has said. The house is only a few blocks from La Merced and the arch so you can use those as landmarks. It is in a quiet residential neighborhood where you will certainly feel safe.
Response from the owner Hi Cathy, I'm glad we were able to feel you welcomed in Antigua. I hope you can come back some day. We'll be happy to see you again. Thanks for taking care of our house! We really appreciate it! Best regards to you and your family!
“a reliable comfortable home while you stay in antigua”
My friends and I (we are all middle-aged women) stayed at Carlos' property next door for about 9 days in June, 2013 while we took a week of spanish classes. It was a great choice. Everything was very comfortable and Carlos was helpful at every turn and had great advice and recommendations regarding antigua and Guatemala in general. We saw the property which is the subject of this site and it is even nicer and would make a perfect choice for a family or a bunch of friends. the location in antigua was ideal. Thanks Carlos for everything. Terry G
“This feels like home.”
My husband, brother and I stayed in Carlos' Antigua home for 12 nights in May and couldn't have wished for a more ideal time. The house is warm and inviting with everything you need. The living area is spacious, there is a strong wifi connection and TV, the beds are comfortable, the showers have ample supply of hot water. Each morning we would enjoy a cup of antigua coffee whilst sitting in the garden or on the terrace. There is a calm quietness to the house which was welcome after our events of the day. It is easy to walk to many restaurants in the neighborhood and at the end of our stay we felt we had experienced antigua in a more intimate way. Carlos was only a call away and would check in to make sure everything was going well. We loved this house, loved the birds that visited the garden, loved the neighborhood and would definitely recommend it to others.
Response from the owner Hi Anna, thanks for your comments. I really appreciate them! I'm sorry I didn't get to meet you personally. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Guatemala, Antigua and in my house. I wanted to ask you a favor. If you took some pictures of Antigua, or the house and would like to share it with us, please send them to me and I'll post them here for other guests to enjoy. Please take care. I'm glad you are back home, safe and sound. -Sincerely, Nancy and Carlos
“Perfect beautiful antigua home”
We fell in love with this house the moment we walked through the door. It was everything we hoped for and more. And Carlos was the most hospitable and gracious host I have met in all of my travels. He made sure that we had all that we needed and was there for us with any questions and concerns. If we travel to antigua again I would want to come back to this perfect and beautiful house. Thank you again Carlos for your generosity and hospitality.
Response from the owner Hi Nannette, I'm glad you were able to enjoy the house and rest after your mission in Guatemala. I really appreciate your hard work and dedication to this country (Nannette and her friends volunteered time and work at a local hospital in rural Guatemala) Please remember my offer next time you come to Guatemala. Sincerely, Carlos
“Antigua home rental”
My two girlfriends and I recently stayed at Carlos's beautiful home in antigua. The entrance welcomed us into a wonderful open garden filled with flowering trees and plants. The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped. It is open to the living and dining areas so made entertaining comfortable. I really liked the proximity to the main square which was a 5-10 minute walk. Carlos was a gracious host and available to help us navigate our way around this amazing city. I highly recommend this rental and look forward to my next stay.
Response from the owner Hi Dana, I'm glad you made it home safe. Thanks for your comments about the house and myself. I really appreciate them. Please remember to keep in touch when you come next time to Guatemala. Sincerely, Carlos
“The most gracious hosts in the world!”
My daughter had made a reservation at Carlos' house for my son and I who were staying in antigua for 4 nights. She had found his house on Tripadvisor and will be staying there this summer. Our flight from the states was landing late and we were staying in Guatemala City prior to leaving for Lake atitlan first, and then later antigua. Carlos agreed to meet us at the airport and take us to our hotel just so we could put a name with a face and tell us about his house that we would be staying at later in the week. This was our first indication of what a wonderful man and host he is. The house was immaculate and very comfortable. It is fully equipped if you wanted to cook all your meals there. It is centrally located to the market, restaurants, bakeries, and other areas of interest. I would highly recommend it to anyone interest in staying there. What Carlos and Nancy didn't have to do but demonstrates their wonderful character is to help me with a horrible crisis. I had lost my passport in Lake atitlan and needed to get to the us Embassy to obtain a replacement before I left. I am a 78 year old woman, who walks with a cane or uses a wheelchair for long distances. My son sent an e-mail to Carlos inquiring about what would be the best way to get to Guatemala City to take care of this. We had assumed we would use a taxi or shuttle and were just looking for a recommendation. Carlos called me at the Lake and said he would help with anything he could. He investigated what was needed on the us Embassy website and when we arrived in antigua, met us and insisted he take us the next morning. He waited while it took several hours to process. On the way back to antigua, he and Nancy stopped at a local department store as I had forgotten some essential clothes and Nancy went in and bought them for me. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Carlos and Nancy and the care they took of me and my son. I would highly recommend them and their house to anyone!
Response from the owner Dear Janet, Thanks for your kind words for us. It was a pleasure to meet both of you. We're glad we could be of service to you. We're sorry about what happened to you, but we're glad things worked out in the end. Thanks again for your comments on the house and us. We sincerely appreciate it! We look forward to meeting Dawn and her family in June. Sincerely, Nancy and Carlos
“Stay at Carlos Santacruz's house antigua”
Carlos did absolutely everything to make our stay in Guatemala enjoyable including driving us to the us Embassy in Guatemala City after my mom lost her passport. Thanks Carlos. He also picked us up at the airport and drove us to our nearby hotel as it was very late at night. He also arranged transportation from antigua to the airport and met us at the airport to assure that we made it home safe. All instances were greatly appreciated as mom is handicapped, making travel difficult. The house was very nice. It is built around a courtyard and has a very open feel. It is located off the main street so noise was never a problem and is about 4 blocks from La Merced. I enjoyed watching life pass by from the roof!
Response from the owner Hi Neil, It's good to hear from you. Thanks for your comments. I really appreciate them. I'm glad things worked out with your mom and were able to get back home safe. I hope by now, you found your dream job! Sincerely Nancy and Carlos.
“Visita antigua Guatemala”
La pasamos muy bien un lugar acogedor cono todos sus servicios todos los servicios quedan a la mano incluyendo el servicio movil tuc tuc. Es de aventurarse y conocer los alrededores. La pasamos muy bien con mis dos bellas hijas, nuestro amigo inseparable rocky y yo (papi). Gracias a Carlos y Nancy por la oportunidad de disfrutar tan bello lugar.
Response from the owner Hola Victor Hugo, Me alegra que hayas disfrutado de la casa en compañía de tus hijas. Gracias por tus comentarios. Esperamos que vuelvas! Saludos a Alejandra y Gabriela. Sinceramente, Nancy y Carlos
“great house in safe neighborhood”
We just returned from a 4 week stay in this house in antigua. I have nothing but praise for Carlos and Nancy who were so helpful in a number of matters. We are senior citizens who had some reservations about going to Guatemala. We found antigua to be very safe and welcoming and this house to be perfect for our needs. It is in a safe neighborhood and conveniently located close to everything - 10 minutes to the market, 12 minutes to the supermarket ( Bodagona) and 5 minutes to 3 of the top 10 restaurants on trip advisor. This house has everything you need and if there are any questions, Nancy and Carlos are there with the answers. The courtyard/patio with the bougainvillea is charming as is the view from the roof top terrace. Great Wi-Fi and 100 cable channels on three Tv's including English French and German programming . If you plan to study Spanish, the house is just 5 minutes from our language school, Proyecto Lingustico Francisco Maroquin (Plfm), which we would also highly recommend.
Response from the owner Hi Barbara and Richard, thank you for your review on our house. It was a pleasure having you as guests. Thank you for taking care of it! I'm glad you had a safe return home. I will also follow-up on the suggestions for future guest stays. Also for your recommendations and references. Please keep in touch. Sincerely, Nancy and Carlos
