La casa es hermosa, decorado con excelente gusto, las fotos se quedan cortas. La ubicación es fantástica, la colonia es segura y tranquila. La vista al volcán es increible y la paz de la plantación de café que rodea la casa y la colonia es un valor agregado que no tiene precio. La cocina tiene mas de lo necesario para cocinarle a un grupo grande de huespedes, y hay una parrilla de buen tamaño para hacer carne asado o algo similar.
We had a terrific stay in this beautiful Antigua villa. Casa Carina, located just a few minutes from the center of town, provided the perfect, quiet launching point for each day. The home's many terraces are beautiful and the home is big enough that it was perfect for 11 people. It's in a gated, safe community and the hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. We will certainly stay here again when we return to Antigua.
The house exceeded expectations, which were high considering the beautiful pictures. I had a group of 10 people, and the house was more than big enough, complete with multiple outdoor decks and a beautiful lawn where you can grill and view the nearby volcano. Though the house is close enough to Antigua to walk, I recommend taking a taxi, which was cheap and simple using the number the host provided. I cannot recommend this house highly enough.
Hi my name is Gabriela,
I got to stay in the house and it was the most amazing house I have ever stayed. The people of the house were so amazing as well. The house was more than I expected to be honest we are looking forward of renting the house again for another occasion. I really recommend this house its location is beautyful an amazing view of the volcano and it's so private and secure. I am so greatful of being in the house thank you
We had a wonderful stay at the Castro's home. The villa is secure and spacious with nice amenities. The hosts were very responsive and willing to make recommendations about places to go and address any minor questions we had. I plan to stay again here soon and enjoy coffee out on one of the many patios!
The house is really beautiful and spacious. Great experience with communication with the host and their family. Transportation into Antigua was a bit tricky as its a bit far to walk, but they provided numbers to local taxi service that we worked with throughout our trip.
