This was our third visit to Antigua Guatemala and our first stay at Casa Bella. While in Antigua, in February of 2020, we searched for the best place to stay for February 2021. We found Casa Bella on the internet and contacted Robin. She arranged for us to visit her home. Virginia showed us the house, which we immediately fell in love with. We booked for February 2021 having no idea a pandemic was about to hit. Robin was very accommodating and double-checked with us throughout the year to see if we still planned to stay. This was very reassuring as we had heard of many people losing their deposits on homes they had booked in advance. We arrived late afternoon and Robin arranged to have dinner waiting for us. We had a wonderful stay and in fact extended our stay two additional weeks for a total stay of six weeks. Virginia, the House Keeper, Chef, Shopper, and all around helper was awesome. She kept the house immaculate, which was no easy task with the amount of ash from the local volcanoes. The volcanoes were extra active during our stay. Carlos, the grounds keeper, kept the gardens and plants looking great. Both wore masks anytime we were around. The house is very roomy, the roof-top deck is a must see, and at night you can see the lava flows. If you like to cook, you will love the kitchen! Every utensil and appliance for cooking and baking you can imagine. Location, I cannot say enough about the location, a few minute’s walk to the market and many restaurants. Security: they had 24-hour security, with a gated entrance, and very quickly the guards got to know us and we truly felt like we were being welcomed home anytime we came through the gates. We even had one of the guards offer to wash our rented car that got rather muddy when we made a wrong turn down a dirt road. We have already booked for February 2022.
Just a Beautiful Home!
