The nearby chapel of Candelaria lends its’ name to our newest three bedroom home designed by Josue Ramos. El Portico is surrounded by two massive Ceiba trees, that are sacred to the Mayans. The shady central courtyard with its’ gurgling fountain creates a cool respite from sun drenched city.

In the old 18th century Portico House are the living room, a guest bedroom and the arched portico. The beautiful mosaic tile floors are from a later period but the antique wood beamed ceilings are all original. El portico is perfect for dining in the evenings or napping in the afternoon. There is a whimsical bathroom in the courtyard created around the old water storage tank.

On the far side of the courtyard is the old Tejaban House. The Marseilles tile covered kitchen has been completely modernized. Beyond the kitchen is the swimming pool with a patio and garden that features another cool shaded seating area. Above the kitchen is the Tejaban guest room with a balcony overlooking the pool. It features a view of the cathedral on the main square 4 blocks away. This peaked roof room with its’ natural terracotta tiles and plastered walls is a serene retreat from site seeing. This lovely room has a large modern bathroom and air conditioning.

Across the way is the Master bedroom suite that feels like a giant colonial tree house. The double windows open onto the highest branches of the ceiba tree where many tropical birds visit in the mornings. Opposite is the private terrace that has an impressive view of 7 nearby colonial churches and is ideal for sunbathing or stargazing. It will be hard to remove yourself from the luxury of the oversized tub in the spacious and light filled bathroom. Luckily there’s room for two.
