“Lovely place”
Reviewed 18 January 2014 via mobile

My girlfriend and I stayed here last week for the last three nights of our trip. Marie is fantastic and very welcoming. The rooms are very large and spacious and she has the most beautiful garden. We spent our mornings in the garden having breakfast with Marie and chatting about what we were doing that day. She is very knowledgable about the area as she has been there for quite sometime.

We had the little apt in the back which also had a kitchen. Very quiet and very private. Overall this is a lovely place and we will definitely be back.

Marie Delattre and her son, Sergio, were wonderful hosts! They took me downtown to see the sights, helped me plan my visit, and Marie even used her personal connections to help me get a tour in a private, historic residence that wasn't open to the public.

The house, formerly owned by Gore Vidal, is elegant: high ceilings, arched doors and windows, colonial-style furnishings.

Marie serves a scrumptious breakfast, all organic, and will shop for whatever you like to eat for breakfast.

I could walk everywhere from Casa Marie: the house is 2 blocks from the center of town.

I had difficulty finding her email, so here it is: delattrems@gmail.com

Totally a great place to stay!

Room Tip: The room at the back of the house is quieter, if it's available.

Marie,...ah....Marie!

Not only did Marie bared with us, and the 50 emails we exchange before, but she helped us planned her trip and recommended a wonderful guide.
In her place we felt at home in this magical garden and classy-tasty atmosphere.
We can only highly recommend her place to anyone staying in Antigua.... and on top of it to anyone who wants to learn about real Guatemala!!

We spent one night in Antigua with Marie and Sergio. The location is right in the center of town close to the central square and other main attractions. The house has a fantastic ambience and feel. The cool spacious rooms reek of colonial history and the local artifacts imbue an aura of a living museum. The interior garden is a beautiful cool oasis of long term established plants. Marie is an interesting host with a vast knowledge of Antigua that she is willing to share with the interested. She was kind enough to help us maximize our experience with the Easter processions. When we were having difficulty with our tourist shuttle she used her formidable assertiveness to solve our problems. I would highly recommend staying at Casa Marie.

We have stayed many times with Marie and little Sergio! They are both lovely people! The house is gorgeous and the patio garden exquisite! Great location conveniently located near the Parque Central!
We recommend Casa Marie to you as an excellent place to stay in Antigua.

Reviewed 27 August 2007

I have been staying at Casa Marie periodically since 2003. I do fieldwork in Guatemala, and always begin and end my time in that country with a stay at Casa Marie.

The house is gorgeous, with an extraordinary garden, and artwork, textiles, and artifacts scattered throughout the building that will keep you distracted for hours. There is little better than watching the hummingbirds as you eat breakfast in the garden.

Casa Marie is very centrally located, only 2 blocks from the Parque Central. It is situated next to one of the most beautiful ruins in Antigua, Ruina del Carmen, which currently holds an artisan market (you can get all your shopping done right next door!).

Marie and her young son Sergio are both fluent in Spanish, French, and English. They are wonderful people, and although this is a bed and breakfast-type accommodation, privacy is respected and it can often feel as if you are the only one there.

I can't recommend this place enough if you are looking for something a little different than the typical Antiguan hotel or hostel.
