WHERE WE ARE LOCATED
The villa is a short five-minute walk or two minute taxi ride from the centre of town. During the day Antigua Guatemala is a hub of tourism and commerce. Chicken buses abound as a means of low cost transportation in the area.
While spending our time in Antigua Guatemala we share our large home or Villa with travelers from around the world.
November through May we offer travelers the option of staying in a large colonial style home located in the heart of Antigua Guatemala. We offer three luxury suites, each with en suite bathroom, separate living room/sitting room, with terrace or balcony overlooking the colonial city’s rooftops and volcano and green highland views. Our boutique travelers retreat accommodates a maximum of eight guests.
Our home in Antigua Guatemala is a hopping off point for travelers seeking adventure and the pleasures of Guatemala. The Yokobsens have lived in the area for several years and we offer our visitors first-hand knowledge of where to go and what to see, the right guides to use and advice about sights travelers might enjoy based on their interests.
Unlike a formal hotel, The Yokobsen’s winter home offers travelers a comfortable and attractive place to rest their heads after a day of touring the region. Over a complementary breakfast guest can ask hosts for travel and touring advice and direction.

The airport to Antigua Guatemala is La Aurora International Airport (GUA) located in Guatemala City, from there you can take a shuttle or taxi to Antigua, with average traffic it would take less than an hour. From 5 PM to 7 PM it can take you an extra 30 to 45 minutes due to business hours traffic, as the airport is in the middle of the city. From Guatemala City you take CA1 to the west (to El Trebol, or Mixco) up to San Lucas Sacatepequez, where there is an exit to Antigua.
If you are driving from Mexico or the U.S. (or from Panajachel) you will most likely will be on road CA1, there you can:
- Exit at Chimaltenango, following the signs to Antigua, but only during the day, as the road to Antigua could be little transited and you can get lost easily. It is a nice road, with interesting sights like San Andres Itzapa, where you can see Maximon, a saint worshiped by Mayan and other local people.
- Or continue in Chimaltenango to San Lucas, and there you can take a the exit to Antigua.
