Best experience ever!
We absolutely adores staying at this property for 2 weeks. My son and the sweet doggo, JD, were instant friends. This beautiful home provided a lovely, quiet, and comfortable place for us to return to after language school each day. We had everything we needed and then some. Rene is a very helpful landlord and we feel so grateful to have found this property. We were within a 20 minutes walk of basically everything. We only took a taxi one time! Hope to return some day!
Comfortable stay in Antigua
My family was very comfortable at Rene’s place. There was plenty of room for our family of four and the accommodations were very comfortable. Rene left us fruit to begin our stay with something to eat and was available to answer any questions we had. His dog JD became a welcome pleasure as we missed our dog at home. It is a very nice home in a gated community with a helpful housekeeper, Wilma. Renee plays music at a local restaurant that he owns and provides free transportation to and from the restaurant. We very much enjoyed the restaurant and live music.
Thank you for the review. It was very nice meeting your family and look forward to your next visit. I hope you got to the airport on time given the drivers delay.
Home away from home!
We took our two children, ages 9 and 12, to Antigua for two weeks and were lucky enough to find Rene's property for our stay. Our first impressions were of safety and security, followed by the colonial architecture and cleanliness. The location is awesome - a short walk from town in a quiet residential area. Rene was a fabulous host and even introduced us to the local tennis club where my son was able to practice during our stay. Vilma, the housekeeper, is very helpful, and of course there is JD, the wonderful family German Shepherd. We absolutely loved the company of JD as we were missing our Lab from home! The house is wonderful and we are already planning our return to Antigua y la casa de Don Rene!
Thank you for the nice review. We look forward to your next visit and good luck in the tennis matches !
Home Away From Home
We had a phenomenal experience at this beautiful home in Antigua. Rene made sure we felt comfortable and JD kept us company during our stay. This home is in a gated community with a roof top balcony with a view of Volcán de Aqua.
Best rental house in Antigua!
Rene's house is gorgeous and very well maintained. His attention to detail is quite impressive. We loved his home. He had everything we could possibly need and then some. It was clean and so authentically decorated. Rene was helpful and friendly and answered all of our questions. He promptly responded to my emails before our stay. He checked on us and asked how we were or if we needed anything. He offered suggestions when we asked him where to go or where to get something. Vilma ( the housekeeper) was friendly and always available for anything we needed. There was a driver ( Oscar) available to us which was great. We have been to Antigua 28 times and this was our best trip due to Rene's house and his hospitality. We will stay there every year from now on. I could go on and on about how perfect his home is. We are home now and just looking back at all the pictures we have of his beautiful home and wishing we were back there!
I can't forget to mention his sweet dog, JD. He is the sweetest, most gentle friendly pup there is. He became our pet for the week and spent lots of time with our family. We miss him and can't wait to see him next year. We were all sad to say goodbye to him when we left.
Thanks Rene for everything. We highly recommend your home to anyone who wants to stay in a beautiful home with a wonderful host ( and the sweetest pup ever!)
See you next year!
Thank you for this very nice review. I look for to your next visit !
All the best, Rene, JD, Vilma.
Family Time well enjoyed
Don Rene is an excellent host. We have 11,12,14 year old boys. Fresh water and fruits were waiting for us. If you like dogs, JD will be stand in dog. Mellow. There are house keepers available to help with things. The location was very safe, if that is even a concern in Antigua. I ran all over (5 miles and 13.1 miles). We did Pacaya at 2am start. That is the right time to see the lava at red hot. Roasting marshmallows with the kids was the cherry on top. My oldest and I did the Acatenango 2 day hike while the rest of the clan made chocolate at the Choco Museum. If you crave pizza, Romeo and Juliet was two thumbs up from my finicky eater. I hate to admit, but chicken nuggets from Camperos were quite tasty. The final night we were there, we went to Las Palmas. Dinner was delicious, however the entertainment is what made it. Don Rene even hooked us up with a good transport company that subsequently took us to Panajachel and will also return us to the airport on our last day. We did well enough with cash, but would suggest getting quetzals a plenty. Otherwise everything is rounded against you on the exchange. We were able to credit card most things.
Again, the home was great.
Thank you for the review my friends, I look forward to your next visit.
Located in a quiet and secure residencial area, with full view of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. A short walk will get you to the supermarket, pharmacies and shops.
