About this listing
Its dIFeReNt!! What can I say - become immersed in a creative and inspiring space that will hopefully touch your soul in more than one way! Aesthetic, worldly, cosy, comfortable, alive, colorful, private, convivial, joyful, regenerative. Come play!
This room is The Finca Room (one of 5 bedrooms available in our mystical home). I called it by that name because its views (to the East) are of the awesome Coffee Finca (Finca=farm) next door. You'll be gazing directly at the main estate house and gardens - reminiscent of Tuscany with its poplar skyline and also of grand british gardens. A sense of expansiveness and serenity eminates. The room itself is located on the top floor of the house, adjacent to a full bathroom (shower designed "open" - no windows - where the open space is towards the Finca once more).
Ample!... With many small universes within the whole, each carrying it's own inspiring energy. To make but a few:
- Garden aesthetic, green, colorful, tropical, healing, culinary.
- Spiritual room symbolism, colors, chakras, energy, 5 elements, peacefulness, light & darkness, candles & incense
- Library inspiring, fiction, healing, reality, beauty, humanity, living, serenity
-Moroccan lounge travel, exotic, romanticism, music, informal connections, bohemian, evenings in good company, escape to another world
-Front porch rocking chairs, candles, garden views, sheltered, outside, glass of wine, conversations, scents of the night, read a book
-Outdoor lounge BBQ, another space, fish pond, plants, mural, bamboo wall, jasmin
-Kitchen heart of the house, social hub, good coffee grown 5 minutes away, home cooking, quality ingredients, slow food, imagination is the limit
You will have access to the whole house. The exceptions are: other bedrooms (obvious.... But there it is (;-) ) and the office (unless invited).
Interaction with Guests
You will usually be hosted at the house when I am in residence. So chances to interact are pretty high. We are likely to share breakfast or some of our meals together, maybe cook and enjoy a glass of wine together. Its up to your mood, mine too...and the magic of the flow (:-)
The neighborhood is Antigua-like (cobbled stone street) yet 1.5 miles out of town center (less than 1 mile from the edge of town). It is very quiet around here - hearing countryside like night critters, roosters, different owls sometimes. No mainroad pass within hearing distance.
I would definitely encourage you to visit some of the neighboring colonial village around Antigua. Maybe we'll take a trip there together. They are so much more low key than Antigua... One almost gets a feeling of a forgotten era of Spanish colonialism when walking around some of the old main squares with pristine churches [... well sometimes crumbling... But still...]
I offer use of a 1 mountain bike, and will offer you a ride if I happen to be driving into town. You can also walk to/from town (25mins), walk to the main road and take a chicken bus (5mins) or take a tuktuk back (a few minutes).
Other Things to Note
[there are 3 other rooms available should you find this one booked for your desired dates - check out our other listings. Also the house is available as a complete rental]
If you are on a trajectory that will take you to Lake ATITLAN, be sure to CHECK OUT my other listing EAGLE'S NEST located in San Marcos La Laguna - it will blow your HEART & MIND simultaneously ;-).....here is a quick link for it:
Its mostly common sense! Respect the space, its art and layout. Its a beautiful space where you may find lots of inspiration. I hope you make the most of it and enjoy the peacefulness beauty of the house. If you have any questions, ask Nancy the housekeeper, Jose the property manager or myself.
Attention SMOKERS: In order to respect my space and the possible desire for other guests to breath clean air, you are invited to smoke anywhere outside (rooftop terrace, entrance porch with rocking chairs or any of the garden space)
Gregs house was incredible! The house itself is gorgeous, welcoming and comfortable and a solace away from the city, but still close enough to walk to and enjoy! JB was also wonderful in arranging and communicating airport pick up and a wonderful welcome to Guatemala. Thank you!
Very convenient air bnb if you are looking for a cool and chill time in Antigua, far from the youth hostal business.
Greg and his manager JB are very careful and reactive.
The house is located just outside the center in a luxurious and very calm district. It is very easy to reach the center (15-20 min door to door) by bu, stop, tuk tuk or walking.
The house is perfectly equiped and the vibe very good. Perfectly furnished kitchen, very confy beds and welcoming garden.
Our feeling felt very close to the Greg's description of the house; We had a great stay ther, thank you ¡
Both Greg and his property manager were super friendly and accommodating! Picking up and dropping off keys was a snap. House and room were both beautiful.
We had a great stay at Greg's house in Antigua. It is really peaceful and the rooftop terrace offers stunning views on the city and the volcano. We recommend to have a car or a reliable taxi as we staid during the rainy season and it was not possible to go to the center by foot.
