My family and I enjoyed Antigua staying at this great house. It is indeed a beautiful property, very comfortable, safe and clean (actually spotless!). Communication with Annika & Alex was easy and fluid, all instructions were clear and easy to understand. I will definitely visit again soon!

Villa Cariño stood up to its name as a lovely and beautifully arranged home in Antigua, Guatemala. It was delicately decorated from top to bottom, inside out! No spot was left unattended. The hosts were courteous and attentive. Special thanks to doña Estela for making herself available during New Year, and thanks to doña Maria for taking good care of us. If you plan to visit town often make sure to have your own transportation as the home is over a mile away from the city center.

We love travelling around the world, experiencing different cultures and sharing with family & friends. As a multicultural family (Annika being Swedish and Alex being Guatemalan/Spanish) we spend a good share of our vacation time in our "family hubs" (a few wonderful spots around Guatemala, Spain and Sweden)... we like to explore and stretch our boundaries so every year we try to prioritise a couple of trips to places we have not yet discovered... preferably staying with other hosts in the Airbnb community ;-)
As hosts and as guests, we are easy going, caring, organized and responsible.
