I support what others have written about how welcoming it is to stay in Miwa and Kohei's home. The space is gorgeous- a lot of open air space between the back yard and garden and the lovely roof deck. The house is very comfortable and such a treat to truly share someone's home while traveling. Miwa and Kohei are very helpful in answering all kinds of questions. The location is very convenient to the main square/park and it's easy to get around Antigua from here. I communicated with Miwa through the Casa Menta Antigua facebook page, which was super easy. She was quick to respond and I suggest checking out the facebook page in general as it has more pictures and great comments from past guests. The filtered water, coffee and eggs/toast for breakfast were really nice additions not found at other guest houses on my trip.
