Remember you are in a rural place, bugs are normal inhabitants. We clean and fumigate the house very well, but if you don't pay cleaning service for longer stays you might have bug visitors. I get less stars on location and bugs, we work hard for the super-host status.
We do not accept check in after 6pm. Please plan your transportation well. We work hard for 5 stars and have been Superhost for a year. It is recommended to study the location map and travel by day and to please follow the driving instructions. If you come from the city of Guatemala take the coast road, CA9, then toll road CA2, turn right on Cocales go trough Patulul and enter San Lucas Toliman, from there you turn left towards Santiago, go 5 km turn right on Iglesia Shalem sign. Travel with GPS and please follow driving instructions described in your reservation e-mail.
We take care of washing towels and linens, but no plates, pots and pans.
If you rent both houses please return things to original location. If you stay for more the 2 nights I recommend hiring a person to help you clean, you can request to Diego the keeper. Cerro de Oro is a rural place and bugs are regular visitants, bug spray is available at both houses.
There will be cleaning fee of $20 extra charged to your credit card if the house is left unorganized.

I am a watercolor and ink (Sumi-e) artist and my passion for painting has brought me to teach this incredible medium, @sushanest. I find the peacefulness in Lake Atitlán to be my favorite place for inspiration. My husband and son are architects and they designed and constructed elCapricho and elBunker in Cerro de Oro, with a rustic concrete style. These houses have been used exclusively for renting, with Diego the keeper doing a fantastic job at keeping the place. Becoming a Superhost has been hard work because there are many opinions on what people expect. It is sad when people are not satisfied at our work. I speak fluent english and spanish. Muchas gracias, Saludos
