“All we hoped for.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

people found this review helpful

Came here for a family wedding. First note: Guatemala in general is beautiful, people very friendly. A little english spoken in restaurants and the market, but just try some simple spanish and folks are very happy to help you. Also, there is some significant poverty in this country, but people are hardworking and honest for the most part - they are still rebuilding after a civil war and political crisis.
This rental was very clean and spacious. Very good security in a walled compound with security guards at the gate, then a locked door to the courtyard of our house, and another locked door on the house itself. Unit is maintained very well and housekeeping is meticulous. 4-foot tall Lola ironed sheets in the courtyard all morning and was happy to help with some pressing of travel wrinkled dress clothes. (pay her directly).
Excellent facilities with full bath off each bedroom, very firm beds with kingsize available in some units, full stove and oven, microwave, washer and dryer. Wifi throughout, though slow at times. Not an issue - this is a vacation!
Flor or Paola easy to find whenever help needed, and will do whatever they can to help. We hired local staff to cook for our large group on a couple of occasions, which was a terrific experience. Give the cooks money for groceries, and they return with food and receipts, then build a beautiful and delicious feast before your eyes, in your kitchen, for a few dollars an hour.
A great selection of outside diversions in the area: volcano tours, zipline tours, great public market with interesting, locally made, good quality merchandise, amazing local history and architecture. We had a great, memorable time here.

“Second Stay as Great as the First”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is our second stay at Philippa's villas. We had a party of 20 and rented all four villas. Needless to say, the group had an amazing time.

1. You get one-stop shopping. We had our transfers to and from the airport, our excursions, and catering taken care of by Philippa and her staff.
2. The service is amazing. From the cleaning staff to transportation, everyone was professional and friendly.
3. The villas are very home-like. They are inviting and warm with the décor and design.
4. From start to finish, the process of booking, paying, checking-in, and checking-out is made simple.
5. There is staff available 24 hours a day and small cellular phones are made available to call staff or into town if needed.
6. The community is gated and very safe; yet, it is very near to town. We walked everywhere.
7. The house is filled with all of the necessary amenities (wireless, cable, utensils for cooking, telephone, and more!)

As a whole, the group enjoyed our stay, and we hope to visit again!

We finished up our stay at Philippas rental property in Antigua, Guatemala and couldn't have been more thrilled! We rented 3 homes for a group of 24 in Antigua for a wedding. The first view of the homes left everybody speechless.... They are stunning. And once inside we were all in awe. They haven't missed a detail, the staff is exceptional and Philippa was beyond attentive to every question I had. I would seriously recommend this anyone and everyone!

This rental completely met the needs of our group of 8 women travelling to Antigua to visit the city and the country.. Large comfortable bedrooms, with private bathroom in each.. Kitchen very ample and living space conducive to group stay... Internet was sporadic but that was not too important. The good service and clean rental was our target..

Thank you so much for your review. I wanted to let you know that just this week we had our rather slow Internet system replaced with a brand new satellite system from the US! We also have had SKY TV swing by and that is working great too. We look forward to seeing you again soon! Best wishes Philippa

“Clean, comfortable, good location”

We stayed in Casa Espiritu Santo, the balcony of the master bedroom was amazing. The house is comfortable but the Internet is not good and the cable does not work. One bathroom shower did not work either. But it is clean and comfortable. Walking distance to everything though at night you need a cab. The hot tub really is same temperature than pool. But overall good location, comfortable beds and good location.

“Stunning property”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

Much like all the other reviews, this was an incredible property to stay at. We were a group of 6 volunteers who were taking a much needed one night rest from working in Honduras and this was the perfect place to do it. We all had our own space inside as the home is large. The common outdoor space is beautiful but shared with other units which is fine as long as everyone is quiet. If not, it could be an issue. It is in a gated community with a 24 hour guard, so you feel very safe. It is about 3 blocks from the market and 8 or so from the park. All within walking distances, but there are also tuk-tuks everywhere if you don't want to walk. The owner, the manager and the cook / house cleaner were amazing. Communication prior to getting there was impressive. I highly suggest having Dona Clara cook for you as it's amazing food and very inexpensive. The home was impeccably clean. My only complaint would be that my bed (didn't try them all) was very hard and the bed lines very warn.
