We were welcomed by Juan's mother, and given a tour of the self contained flat. The casa is clean, hot water works , and it's a 5 minute walk to Parque Central. Everything is as described and we would return.

Great spot for a stay in Xela! Less than 10 minute walk to Parque Central in a quiet neighborhood

This apartment is very spacious and not too far from the central park. We didn't meet Juan Pablo, but he was very friendly via email, he even asked his mom to reset the wifi router when we emailed him to let him know the internet went out. We accidentally locked our keys in the bedroom, and Juan Pablo's mom came over from next door to unlock the room for us. She was very nice and understanding. The only unexpected thing was the amount of noise at night due to dogs barking in the neighborhood.

The apartment was great! Very spacious, comfortable beds. If the description says there is hot water, we unfortunately did not have any within our 4 days. The location is good. About a 8 minute walk to the center. Juan mother was a pleasure to meet. The kitchen was equipped with all the cooking wear needed. I would suggest bring warm clothing as it gets very chilly in this town, and there is no heat.

Having been in Antigua for five nights we came to Xela, and it's quite a contrast. It's better value for money but Xela has a different atmosphere. The apartment was spacious and well-equipped but some rooms lack daylight. Other reviews mention the shower, but we didn't have a problem, others mentioned the cats and they were quite active! Juan Pablo's communication was good and his mother was there to welcome us on our arrival.

I stayed at Juan Pablo's apartment for about a week. The place is surprisingly spacious and attractive -- it even has a small private patio! Juan's mom met me for check-in and was wonderfully friendly and sweet; a few days later she even brought me some great fruit. The apartment is not too far from the center, about 10 minutes walk, and it feels fairly safe. There is a laundromat and a couple of tiendas nearby. All in all, it was a wonderful place to stay for a week in Xela, and I will look for it when I return! Thank you, Juan Pablo!
