Perched above tranquil Mayan village of San Marcos, imbued in the visual resonance and energetics of Lake Atitlan, you will reunite with all your western little comforts whilst resting in what will be your homely cozy studio apartment. All bare necessities ( and a lot more) awaiting you.

The space

All modern conveniences available in this little chalet with breathtaking views. Whether inside or out, in bed or cooking, windows have been positioned such that the lake and volcanoes are always within visual reach.

A nest which you will not want nor need to leave if you don't want to: spring water flowing in ( with carbon & colloidal silver filter installed for drinking water needs), and on-demand hot water for shower, bathroom sink and the kitchen sink ( propane tank). All bills included in rental ( no extra fees for utilities).

We also have a peaceful Lake Front Apartment built with similar simple style (its a few minutes walk from San Marcos center) and a beautiful property in Antigua Guatemala - check out our profile.

Guest access

You will have access to the whole property, apart from store room.

Interaction with guests

Myself or my caretaker Gaspar will greet you and respond to any questions or anything you need help with.

Other things to note

Please note this space is not for small children, because there are steep areas and drop offs.

Please note that access (via an uphill walk through the village) is currently more challenging due to road works. Many holes, mounds and bricks laying all over.

Animals live on the property. Currently a cat and her kittens (Lily) and a dog. Others may join them :-). They are friendly and playful and love attention and being stroked. They will come and seek you if you are welcoming to them :-)

Adults must be fully mobile as access is via a small path that is narrow and sometimes steep.

We loved Eagles Nest. It has one of the best views in San Marcos & beautiful to wake up the the sun rising over the mountains. The wifi is very good for Guatemala which is rare so for me this was a bonus given I work online and the stunning views made my work day easier also. The apartment is quaint with books on many topics of interest, herbs stocked in the kitchen and overall just feels like home which is nice after travelling for so long. The hosts JB & Gasper as well as Greg were all very friendly and again added to the stay. There is a new yoga shala underway with sweeping views as well as a Sunday acro yoga jam which this time we didn't get to experience however in the future we will be back to enjoy more of what Eagle's Next has to offer. Highly recommended.

This is a very beautiful location looking out over the entire lake. It is walkable downhill to the town but need to take a Tuk Tuk Taxi up and does require a hike through the woods to get to so make sure to bring bags you can carry there. There was someone waiting and good communication. As this is in the woods there are spiders and other insects in the cabin itself so make sure you are able to handle creepy crawlers! The room is very comfortable with a cute kitchenette and amazing balcony area with a hammock.

Best view ever ! Very cute Airbnb great for couples . It's a hike to get too and then another 5 minute hike off the main road to get too but worth it for this view. Yoga deck was unreal.

The property was beautiful. Coordinating getting to the house was a breeze. And San Marcos is so peaceful. There is a lot of yoga and like-minded people in town. The locals are also so friendly, especially the kids in the streets!

Like others who have stayed here, I can only offer positive feedback - this place is great! It's up the mountain above town, take a tuk-tuk up the hill and then hike through a small village and forest garden to get to the place. If you're in good shape and like to explore, this is a fantastic location for you! The view is unbeatable, not only of the lake but of all the volcanoes near and far. 100% recommend!
