A beautiful colonial style home in the heart of Antigua. This home is unique not only for its spectacular views of the volcano 'Agua' and its large terrace but, for its quaint chapel. The facilities have a wood burning sauna, a swimming pool, a communal kitchen, a BBQ, a pool side bar, and many reading areas to spend the day basking in the tropical sun. 

This home is run by the same owners as the famous neighboring hotel and restaurant, Meson Panza Verde. This partnership allows Palo-Santo and Panza Verde to share facilities and what each has to offer. Amazing food, beautiful ambiance, and a wonderful escape. 

The home is located near central park, it is walking distance to all the great restaurants, coffee shops, stores and  for those who choose, near all the Antigua night life but far away enough to get a good nights sleep.
