When my husband and I decided to stay in Antigua for a month, I began looking for an apartment which I would find pleasing in location, price & appearance. Very well fitting all 3 qualifications, we chose Apartamentos Nazarenos.
I immediately loved it as did my husband. Our duplex apartment, which surrounds a beautiful courtyard, comes equipped with everything, has a homey and inviting appearance and also a balcony on the second floor. That balcony gave us a beautiful view’ with mountains in the background and a serenity I did not have at home in New York.
The owner, Tom, is very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating; to the point where when I had an unforeseen accident, he took care of my leg so beautifully that I never had an infection. Christie, who works at the apartments in many capacities, is just wonderful. She is warm, happy, very accommodating and super helpful. She also became my main practice person with Spanish.
When we first came, the center of Antigua seemed a bit far away, but with our constant walking and exploring, we realized that not only was it easily doable, but you can take an Huber or a Tuk Tuk for just two American dollars. The large supermarket has just about everything and down the street is a little bodega where you can get fill-ins such as milk, bread, snacks, etc.
This was my fifth visit to Guatemala but I never stayed a month. It was a bit difficult and oh so sad to leave when the month of January ended because it really felt like a home away from home and was also very safe. We hope to return next year and repeat our wonderful and easy stay at the apartments. It is a place I highly recommend.
