Casita Armonia is a cosy, but rustic rental with a double bed and simple kitchen with a 3 burner stove, fridge and basic kitchen equipment. The sink is just outside the front door. There is a separate bathroom within the house with electric shower and closet space. A covered porch provides the perfect spot to sit, relax and look out through the foliage to Lake Atitlan, which you can see through the trees.
This casita has WiFi internet.
Casita Armonia is on the property of Sharyanka, Paxanax Bay, Santa Cruz. It is a large property with a main, lake-front house and then 3 small casitas up behind it.
All dwellings share the private dock, meditation pagoda and sauna (although those renting the main house, Villa Verdad, have priority). Access to Santa Cruz is by boat from the main economic and transport hub of Lake Atitlan, Panajachel (Pana).
A comprehensive set of Welcome Notes are in the house for guests information.
We can happily arrange transport via public or private shuttle bus/van to Pana, and then private boat direct to the Sharyanka property if you wish.
Please be sure to give your arrival time at least 24 hrs in advance, so we are prepared. We will need to be called or contacted half an hour before you arrive in Pana.
From Pana it is a 10-15 min boat ride to the Bay of Paxanax (part of Santa Cruz and before it). Just ask the local boats for Pash-a-nash - Q10pp. OR, we can arrange a private boat to take you directly to the Sharyanka private dock for Q125.
Please be sure to arrange all this with the managers prior to arrival. Thank you.
Interaction with guests
There are property managers living in Pana to help and a guardian who comes 5.5 days a week.
Other things to note
Extensive Welcome Notes are provided to all guests.
We would like to bring to guests attention that this is a rural area of Guatemala. As a result, from time to time there may be electrical outings. Usually this doesn't last for much longer than 5-20 mins, but it can affect the internet.
Also, most of Guatemala does not have the high speed internet that guests might be used to at home. Please be aware that this rental, and pretty much all rentals and hotels that offer WiFi, will only be offering about 1-2 mb of speed. This is usually plenty to check emails and video chat, but not for streaming.
Strictly NO smoking
Min 2 night stay
Please respect the other guests on the property and keep the noise down especially after 9pm at night and early in the morning.

I'm from the UK, but live in Guatemala now with my El Salvadorian partner/boyfriend. I have lived in various parts of Guatemala on and off for nearly 20 years, but permanently in Panajachel, Lake Atitlan for over 8 years.
I have been lucky enough to have travelled all over the world on a shoe string, but it was to Guatemala that I kept on being pulled back to, like a magnet! It is now my home.
I love to be able to share the wonders of this amazingly varied and fascinating country with others.
Be warned, once you come, you may never leave!
