Our 2 bedroom home has a high "palapa" style roof and is an artist's oasis. Each piece of furniture has been home made and the space is great for entertaining with an open kitchen with island and huge combined living and dining room. 2 bedrooms each with complete bath allow for privacy.

The kitchen equipped with fridge, stove & oven has all the equipment necessary to enjoy all the amazing local produce!

Interaction with guests

We have a hotel in town, so there is always someone around to help with your requests. Our staff will bring you to our house as it is a little hard to find.

Other things to note

A number of pros and cons, could be a great place for certain parties. Pros: * Two lovely bedrooms and bathrooms; extremely comfy king beds * Well-supplied kitchen * Beautiful property with stunning views * Amazing spot for a family or friends who want to stay put, cook and enjoy the lake Cons: * Extremely difficult to find- through barbed-wire fences, across a soccer field, through a number of gates, next to a dog fight, etc- impossible to find at night * Lots of bugs. Massive ant infestation, made cooking/eating a little less enjoyable * A stay-put kind of place... really difficult to leave at night * Must bring everything you want- paper towels, coffee filters, shampoo, etc

Lily's home is beautiful. It is fairly easy to walk to everything in town. Being right on the lake was incredible. We loved our stay in San Marcos and would love to return someday!

My husband, myself and our two young children really enjoyed our time at Lily's home in San Marcos. The garden is beautiful and you will be hard pressed to find a more spectacular view of the lake and volcanoes. The house is very close to the main path in San Marcos, about a 5 min walk (a little longer with small children). Check in was very smooth even though Lily and her family were out of town. They own a nearby hotel and the hotel staff met us at our car, helped us carry our things to the house and showed us where to park our vehicle. The house is comfortable and clean. The beds are nice and firm and the pillows are really comfortable. The bathrooms were very clean and the blue shower is particularly lovely with hot water and good water pressure. Because San Marcos is rural and there is much vegetation around we did encounter a couple scorpions. However, we were told beforehand that we might and that though they sting they are not at all poisonous. We didn't have any problems with them but if you are squeamish about such creatures this might not be the spot for you. Overall our stay was fantastic and we would definitely recommend Lily's home!

Lily's house in San Marcos is on one of the most beautiful plots of land I've ever stayed on. Her backyard leads down to Lake Atitlan, where there is a view of one of the majestic volcanoes across the lake. The house itself is rustic yet comfortable and charming. Lily was super easy to communicate with and accommodating. She set us up with the staff of the hotel in town that she owns, and they answered our questions, changed currency, arranged transport, etc. Terrific vacation, in no small part thanks to Lily and her house.

Two spacious bedroom suites in a uniquely designed home with beautifully maintained gardens and one of the best views on the lake. Plentiful windows and good cross-ventilation. Comfortable beds. Well appointed kitchen and helpful staff. Quite a trek from town so perfect for those with an adventurous spirit.

Lily's house is gorgeous! Great location with respect to tourist part of san marcos (yoga classes, restaurants, boat dock to other towns) and view if the lake is breathtaking specially at sunrise. We were three adults and a Little baby and it was very convenient for us. No wifi is a bless :) Lily's staff from the hotel were very helpful and available at any time. We wished we could stay longer and i recommend this place.
