Casa Terracota A secluded, romantic hilltop retreat… Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Santa Catarina Palopo and a 10-minute drive from Panajachel, this newly completed villa definitely has the ‘wow’ factor! Casa Terracota is situated on a large, forested property and will give you the sensation of truly being secluded when, in fact, you will be around the corner from great restaurants, shopping and more. After ascending a long stairway from the private parking lot to the house, you will immediately realize that the trek up the stairs was completely worth it! (By the way, the caretaker on the property, Juan Pablo or Antonio, will be more than happy to carry your luggage, groceries, etc between the villa and the parking area.) Once at the top of the stairs, you will be blown away by the panoramic views afforded by Villa Romantica’s setting. The villa has an open floor plan and the ceiling-to-floor windows at the front of the two-story structure perfectly frame the views of Lake Atitlan and it’s surrounding volcanoes as seen from above the lush vegetation on the property. Casa Terracoa boasts all the modern conveniences you could hope for in a vacation villa – with brand new furnishings throughout including a comfortable L-shaped sofa in the living room that converts to two twin-beds, a fully-equipped kitchen, king-size bed in upstairs loft area, 43” flat-screen TV, king-size bed, black-out shades, and a day bed in the upstairs loft. Other amenities that make this property extra special are the soak tub in the bathroom, the outdoor hot tub and expansive front deck both of which offer jaw-dropping views. As with all properties in the Guatemala Luxury Vacation Rentals collection, your private concierge can provide as much or as little service as you would like, including shopping service (to stock your villa with beverage or groceries prior to your arrival), private chef, ground transportation, lake tours in private boat, water sports, massage therapist, to name just a few. Please contact us for a detailed list of all the amenities on offer.
  • If you are looking for a beautiful, open, airy place to relax with views of three different volcanoes, this is the place to stay. David assigned us a wonderful concierge who coordinated transportation for us from Guatemala City with a stop at a super market along the way. Henry, our concierge, met us at the house along with two of the grounds keepers who hoisted our giant luggage up VERY steep steps to the house. The hike up to the house is pretty intense, but completely doable for those with no mobility restrictions. You definitely feel it, but the view is so worth it. The house was super clean, modern and sleek. The kitchen was great to have and the gas stove was wonderful to cook on. The bed was firm but very comfortable and I slept like a rock. The view from the porch is breath taking and it was so nice to be able to relax. All in all, it was a wonderful place to unwind and I would recommend to anyone to stay there!

  • Amazing house with stunning views!

    Gertruda2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved David’s place so much! The house is really close to the locals and the staff were incredibly nice and super helpful. The best part was definitely the view. We had an easy way around because we always had offers for a ride by tuk tuks or trucks. Santa Catarina is a quick 10min drive to Panajachel where we spend most of our time shopping and eating.

  • The cabin is very well located. It has a spectacular view. Recommended to go as a couple.

    Janina2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! This place is as great as it gets. The hospitality of the team in place when you arrive. The VIEW!! Definitely a "long stairway" as mentioned in the details, but verrrryyy much worth the view when you get to the house!! Loved every part of this place. Will definitely come back to this and already recommended to other friends and family!!

    Jose2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place! Better than we expected. The house is very cozy, the tub relaxes you after having tired days. The house is spacious and the lake view is great! I stayed with my friends for two nights and on the way we toured the town of Santa Catarina, a very nice and quiet town that conveys peace, we had a great time, of course I would return, David and Henry's attention was excellent.

Great care was taken to ensure that all visitors will feel that they are being pampered in their own home away from home. The jacuzzi, backyard with table and umbrella for barbeque and most importantly, ample access to the lake with use of kayaks in the included price makes this apartment a unique place in the area.
  • Very pretty

    Bessy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Might be the most stunning location on Lake Atitlan! We went with friends and together booked both the big house and the cottage which is up the hill from the house and the perfect respite from our large group. On booking we thought the cottage was in the yellow building right on the lake but it’s actually above the main house closer to the road. We had so much fun going out on the kayaks and swimming in the lake that we’re already planning for our next trip there. Henry, the concierge, always responded immediately and planned everything we needed from shuttle services to boat trips across the lake which left right from our dock! Santa Catarina Palopo is a true immersion into Mayan life and you won’t find many tourists in this charming town, making for a perfect immersion experience. The family that live on property were very attentive and kind. Be sure to visit Cafe Tuk in the square for delicious organic coffee. Can’t wait to go back!

    LA CASA COLIBRI Overview: La Casa Colibri ‘The Hummingbird House’ was designed to take in the lake views from every room in the house, cascading down the mountainside with huge amounts of glass framing in the panoramic views of Lake Atitlan and surrounding, perfectly cone-shaped volcanoes. Description: La Casa Colibri ‘The Hummingbird House’ was designed to take in the lake views from every room in the house, cascading down the mountainside with huge amounts of glass framing in the panoramic views of Lake Atitlan and surrounding, perfectly cone-shaped volcanoes. At approximately 5200 feet above sea level, the Lake Atitlan area enjoys year-round spring-like weather (70s to low 80s during the day and 60s at night). Although temperatures remain relatively constant throughout the year the weather is marked by two distinctive seasons: the rainy season (May to October) and the dry season (November to April). During the rainy season the mountains and volcanoes surrounding the lake are verdant green. The mornings are generally crystal clear, while the afternoons bring spectacular showers that are a sight to behold as they roll in over the lake. During the dry season it is rare to receive any precipitation at all. La Casa Colibri has five luxurious guest rooms each with en-suite bath. Four rooms have spacious balconies overlooking the lake. Two rooms have deep soak tubs with separate showers. STANDARD RATES:NIGHTLY (MIN 1 NIGHT): $395.00 for 1 to 6 guests ($20 per night per guest over six guests) WEEKLY RATE: $2568.00 for 1 to 6 guests ($20 per night per guest over six guests) EASTER WEEK AND YEAR-END RATES (week preceding Easter and from Dec. 15 - 31): NIGHTLY RATE: $595.00 for 1 to 6 guests ($20 per night per guest over six guests) 4 night minimum stay WEEKLY RATE: $3868.00 for 1 to 6 guests ($20 per night per guest over six guests)
    La Casa Colibri is located on the outskirts of the Maya village of Santa Catarina Palopo..five to ten minutes on foot. The village is small and quaint with a Spanish Colonial era Catholic church and many small shops selling local artisan's textiles and handicrafts. There are several small eateries as well as two nicer restuarants -- one at the Hotel Villa Santa Catarina, located near the village dock, and the other at Hotel Casa Palopo, located directly next door to La Casa Colibri. Should guests wish to dine at Hotel Casa Palopo, just ask me or my staff to make a reservation and we will be happy to do so. There is a gate between the two properties that can be unlocked with advance notice, providing easy access from La Casa Colibri to the restaurant next door.
  • Myself and 5 girlfriends stayed at Los Colibiris and had an absolutely amazing stay. We sadly only had two nights, so we kept it low key and enjoyed the beautiful house, views and pool. David was beyond helpful and extremely responsive and attentive with our group. The staff were also absolutely delightful, cooking amazing meals from scratch and keeping the house very clean. I recommend this place to any group of friends or family. You'll have a blast!

    Jillian2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • La Casa Colibri...just spectacular. The house is gorgeous, the views are amazing, and the service could not be beat. David is an incredible host that offered several suggestions for places to see and restaurants to eat at. His staff did everything they could to ensure our stay was top notch. The home cooked meals were fantastic. Can’t say enough positive things about this stay. Incredible.

    Stacey2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at David's place. The views were spectacular and the home very comfortable while being luxurious. The breakfasts provided by Carmen and Alberto were a fantastic way to start each day. Danny, the concierge, was extremely attentive and cheerful despite the language barrier. We took advantage of having Angela make dinner for us a couple of times and they were both delicious and affordable. Because of the location of the house, being a little far from the town centre, we would recommend visitors stock up on groceries for their stay. We highly recommend a stay at Casa Colibri--thank you, David!

    Sue2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Out from a fairy tale. The place is BEAUTIFUL, best scenery in Lake Atitlan, excellent service and the house is amazing! Highly recommended!!!!

    Maria Ines2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • I have done many trips including Europe and this place blew my mind. Yes PERFECT view, great host, caretaker (Dani) is amazing. We had a cook doing Breakfast and Dinner and every single meal was amazing. Already planning my next trip!

    Wilbert2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful house this is! So stunning!! The pictures don’t do it justice! The staff was really helpful and friendly. They were accommodating to our large group. We prearranged a dinner for our whole group from other houses and cook from this house was incredible! The first night she made us a traditional meal, and the second night a ravioli dish. Her Italian food was on point as she worked for a northern Italian family for years. And her chicken the night before is one of the best rotisserie many us us has tried! The concierge Jorge was also very helpful and made things easy by arranging tours for our group. Only thing I would suggest is checking that all the fees are included upfront. The additional fees for transporting us to the Santa Catarina dock were surprising to us as this is usually included (specially with luxury properties), and considering that this property is not so accessible with the steep hill. Aside from that everything was great. The house was clean. We LOVED the staff. And everyone had a great time! And would most definitely stay here again.

    Vanessa2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Staying here was beyond what we expected. The view from practically every room was breathtaking and we felt completely relaxed and at home from the instant we arrived. David and his staff were so helpful and attentive our entire stay and truly left us wanting for nothing! We all agreed that this is a place we’d come back to in a heartbeat.

    Adrianna2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing house, great views of the lake, super helpful staff, easy to coordinate amenities. Private dinners?! Yes please! Wood heated sauna?! If we must! A 10 min walk to Santa Catarina where we took boats to other villages. We hope to come back.

    Santa Catarina Palopó, Sololá, Guatemala

    Welcome to my getaway. In this unique mountain side home a large open interior space offers stunning views of one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. From the patio you enter the house greeted by a clean open living space. Left of the door is a single bed, couch, and a fully equipped kitchen. To the right a dining table with a large bay window surrounded by trees and chirping birds. A shorter wall acts as a separator between the large bedroom with a king size bed, fireplace, and bathroom.
    The big roof top terrace gives you the opportunity to practice yoga, outside meditation, or simply relax in the sun. If you like sports you can play badminton and bocce ball onsite, all of which are located in your own private backyard. Ten steps down from the terrace is the covered patio with a bench, table and chairs. Great place for relaxing, coffee, meals or enjoying the garden. Continue up the stairs and you will be able to go for a hike in the forest, engage in birdwatching or simply enjoy the amazing Atitlan lake view.
    My property is built into the beautiful hillside of Lake Atitlan. Located 2.6kms from the center of Panajachel (calle principal) - 20 minute walk / 8 minute drive towards Santa Catarina
  • It is a super nice place, with all the facilities, good beds, a lot of place to sit and from the terrace a spectacular view of the volcanoes. It is on the road between Pana and Santa Catarina, so you depend on transportation in tuctuc and you have to bring food etc, because there is nothing nearby. The tuctuc costs 15Q pp from Pana. From the house we walk to Sta Catarina (on the recommendation of Mercedes), it is a beautiful walk and near the road next to the lake. The boats to the or try is villages can take them in the Dick Jujuy de Pana, and the price varies between 10 and 25pp, x track. The communication with Mercedes was excellent, she responds and resolves immediately, just like the boy who lives below. Highly recommended!

    Manine2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic villa close to the town, perfect to relax and enjoy the amazing lake!

    Daniele2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • If paradise exists it must be quite close to Mercedes place.

    Guillem2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The place has incredible views! It is very quiet so you can enjoy a peaceful stay, without being too far from Panajachel. Location was amazing, you can drive car or go to Panajachel by Tuc Tuc. I would recommend it to couples visiting Atitlan.

    Ana Paula2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Mercedes place was a real gem. The house had everything we needed for a short getaway and offered the privacy and quiet we were looking for. I would definitely stay with Mercedes again!

    Chloe2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • This place was the rare instance where the photos fully match the place, if not better. The house is secluded on a hill with a private entrance and a guard on the premises. It was clean and exactly as the photos indicate. Mercedes was helpful in making ride arrangements, as the place is a bit out of the hustle and bustle of Panajachel (though I can’t imagine having enjoyed staying in Panajachel - it’s too loud and hectic there). By comparison, this place is a quiet slice of heaven. Sitting by the large window, looking out and chatting was one of the highlights of the stay. You will need to either buy groceries and make food at the Airbnb, or go to the town for all the food and drinks as there is nothing within less than a 7-10 minute ride from the house. The only thing I wish was better was the view - you can’t fully see the lake, as the view is obstructed by the trees and other vegetation.

    Agiimaa2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mercedes's house is beautiful. Watching the sunset from the terrace is spectacular. The house has everything you need for a pleasant stay. The chimney should be highlighted. Many activities can be done near this house. The stay was pleasant. RECOMMENDED PLACE.

    Waleska2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Mercedes’s house is wonderful for watching the sunset and sunrise! The house is clean and very accurate to all the profile pictures. The location, although a little outside of Pana, is great because it is only a short truck ride to the town but out of the noise and commotion. My boyfriend and I highly enjoyed our stay and found that taking a truck to town and then a ferry to any part of the lake was simple and exiting! It was so nice to have a peaceful place to come back to at the end of the day.

  • David’s place was a dream! It is located a short distance from the center of Panajachel which gave us tons of privacy yet close enough to take advantage of all that Pana has to offer. The place itself is beautiful and has all the amenities needed for a short or longer stay. The view is breathtaking and the jacuzzi was amazing as the nights do cool down quite a bit. We would absolutely stay here again! Thanks, David!

    Claire2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • I DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE! This place is magical. It's located on the outskirts of town, which doesn't matter bc you'll want to spend most your time on the balcony! Henry was an awesome help - he gave me tips as a single traveling gal, set up my car transfers and was overall helpful when needed. The apt is equipped with everything you need. Located right next door to an AirBNB with a lovely restaurant. I will be back for sure!

    Amy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t even know where to start but if you’re thinking about booking this bungalow, do it now! It looks just like the pictures and the view is AMAZING! I traveled to Guatemala solo and I was little worried but I felt so safe! Henry, who is one of David’s concierges was a great host and just a message away. Also the hot tub was perfect a touch (takes a little while to heat up) and before I arrived, Henry sent me a list of extra services that you can book. I booked a massage right when the sun was setting it was truly an amazing experience! Oh and there’s a bed and breakfast restaurant right next door if you don’t feel like going into Panajachel (only a 10 min drive) for food but it wasn’t anything to write home about. I don’t think I’ll ever stop talking about this place! I will definitely be back again! Thank you David and Henry!

    Barbara2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • I am from Puerto Rico and went to Guatemala to visit my friends. The place is beautiful, an incredible view and very central to everything touristy. David and Jorge were always aware of us and gave us a very kind treatment and cuts. We are delighted so when I return in April I will book with you again. A hug!

    Estefanía2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful Airbnb! The view is gorgeous, bed was comfortable and cozy. We loved our stay and would recommend to anyone traveling to Panajachel.

  • The house is beautiful we specially loved the gardens. The view was really gorgeous from all the rooms. Rooms were spacious and accommodated our family perfectly. Being in the water and having the dock right there was so convenient, we were able to tour the lake and be dropped off right at the house. The house was also fairly easy to find, and there was parking.

    The villa is located in a gated community, with beautiful vertical gardens and some walking areas where you can enjoy the view of the lake. Attached to the villas, there is a shared social area with pool and sun-terrace, where you can enjoy amazing sunsets.
  • Excellent place to rest with family or friends outside the bustle of Pana. Spectacular view of the lake and the 3 volcanoes! The decoration of the house is incredible!

  • The house is spectacular, and the enclave and views even more. The person who received us was super friendly, and attended to all inquiries at all times, on how to move around the area. The house is very well equipped, and it is a perfect place to spend a few days of rest and disconnection in front of the volcanoes of Lake Atiltlán.

    Sara2020-02-25T00:00:00Z

    Wake up in your king-sized bed to one of the most amazing views in the world. Enjoy a swim “beneath” the volcanoes and hang out on the dock. Relax and enjoy the tranquility or get out and explore. Take a walk to one of the neighboring villages or explore the lake by boat. At the end of the day settle back with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset.
    The studio, newly completed in July 2019, is an open-plan, modern-style, lakefront apartment. The hardwood floors and ceiling, together with the floor-to-ceiling windows, make the most of the magnificent views we have of the lake and the volcanoes. At the front of the open-plan, split-level space, is a king-size bed, glass-encased shower, and bathroom. An accordian-style door, at the front of the studio, can be completely opened to remove all barriers between you and the landscape outside. The kitchen and living area is located towards the back of the studio: perfect for meals, relaxing, or office-style work. When needed, semi-transparent roller blinds can be lowered to provide privacy and/or darken the space. All windows, and the front door, have mosquito screens to keep any mosquitos at bay while still allowing airflow. Wake up, make a cup of local coffee, open the accordion doors, and head back to bed to enjoy your coffee, the sunrise, and perhaps even a few extra hours of sleep. Please note: the studio (and our house also) has a modern ecological dry toilet (see photo #12). Waste is stored in a chamber that will be removed and thoroughly cleaned before you arrive and after you leave. It will be like using a newly installed toilet. The toilet is connected directly to an extractor fan, located outside the studio, to ensure that there is no odor. The Property Make use of our private dock to swim, hang out, and pat our puppy dogs. Take out the stand-up paddleboard and explore, or use the wifi coverage at the dock to relax and listen to music. The dock is also where you will take public or private boats to other villages around the lake, to explore or eat at restaurants. The public footpath that connects our neighboring villages also runs through our property. If you are adventurous, you can walk to Jaibalito or Tzununá along one of the most scenic trails in this area of Lake Atitlan. Location We are located between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununá, on one of the most remote and quiet shorelines of Lake Atitlan. The property is accessible via boat or the public footpath (there is no road access). It is a 5-minute boat ride to these two neighboring villages, or a 30-minute walk to Jaibalito, and a 60-minute walk to Tzununá. During daylight hours, public boats pass our dock every 20 minutes. These boats can be flagged down as they pass our dock and they stop at all the villages along the northern shore of Lake Atitlan. If traveling by public boat is not your style, private boats are available to take you anywhere on the lake. If needed, we are happy to help arrange your travel to our property via a private shuttle and/or a private boat (fares are additional). We will also provide you with information to organize your own private boat travel around the lake, if travel by public boat isn't your style.
    "Casa de Cristal," the name of the property, is located on Lago Atitlan between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununa. As it is a remote location, the predominant sound is that of the lake. Expect to enjoy trees, rocks, birds, and unobstructed views of Atitlan's three volcanoes. The private dock offers space for sitting and relaxing or swimming and paddleboarding. Our wifi extends to the dock as well. Matthew and I live in a larger house on this property, so expect to see us out and about during your stay.
  • Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic and travel limitations placed on US air travel, I was unable to actually stay at this Airbnb; however, Nancy's quick communication and understanding made my last minute change of plans as easy as possible. Thanks again for your understanding and I hope to visit you once things calm down.

    Taylor2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this little corner of solitude on lake atitlan. Falling asleep to the sound of the lake and waking up to sunrise beyond the mountains was romantic and extremely relaxing. The house has everything we needed, not to mention getting around via local lancha boats was easier than expected. The space is beautiful, well designed and very clean. Nancy was an incredible host and we loved the sweet doggos. We were sad to leave and would recommend this home to any travelers looking for a slice of paradise.

    Lena2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Casa de Cristal is a little piece of heaven nestled into the rocks on Lake Atitlan. The views are absolutely stunning from sun up to sun down and the lake offers a great variety of things to see and do. The casa is centrally located on the lake, so you have a quick, easy, and cheap boat ride to any of the small lake towns you’d wish to visit. Nancy and Matthew are super hosts who respond very quickly to any questions and go out of their way to help provide information and recommendations to better explore the lake. I would highly recommend Casa de Cristal as your destination when visiting Lake Atitlan, and if we are ever back this way, we will definitely hope to visit again!

    Matt2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had high expectations for this place and yet, it exceeded them! It was absolutely amazing, waking up to some of the most breathtaking views we've seen and enjoying a glass of wine admiring the incredible sunsets! The house had everything we needed, the bed was super comfortable, and the entire experience was just unforgettable! Nancy and Matthew were wonderful hosts, they went above and beyond to make us feel at home and help us with some extra agenda we had! We can't wait to go back!

    Blaga2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • No words needed! Nancy and Matthew were great hosts. We had a wonderful time and start of our vacation !

    Theresa2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • The moment we arrived we were already afraid of leaving. Just too beautiful, peaceful and comfortable to be true. Nancy and Matthew are great hosts - always there when you need them but still respecting your privacy. We hope to be back one day for at least an entire week!

    Lukas2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing place!!! If you have the chance to stay at this very special location on Lake Atitlan, do it!!! Matthew and Nancy are super host. You will not regret a moment you spend here.

    Brigitte2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • It's quite hard to find words to describe how amazing this place is. The house and the views are absolutely phantastic! Not only is the house stunningly beautiful but also very well equipped and very clean! The shower is probably the best you can find in Guatemala – while taking a shower you can enjoy breathtaking views of the lake and it has great water pressure. We loved the secluded and quiet location of the house. It was amazing watching sunset and sunrise, cooking, doing yoga and going for a swim in the lake. There was also a paddle board which we were allowed to use. And if you want to explore the area you can easily catch a boat which will take you around the lake. Staying at this heavenly place is definitely an experience we won't forget. Plus Matthew and Nancy are the sweetest hosts! Thanks so much!

    Santa Catarina Palopo is one of the 12 lake-side villages of the famous Lake Atitlan. It is on the eastern side of the Lake just a short 20-minute drive by car from the commercial and transport hub of the Lake, Panajachel, better known at Pana. It is a small Mayan village which is distinctive due to the beautiful blue coloured 'traje' of the Mayan locals (traditional costume). This village is also one of the few in the country where many men still wear the traditional traje too. The village recently hit the international news due to a fantastic idea of painting the local buildings in the bright colours that resembled the Mayan traje and traditional weavings. As more and more buildings become painted, the town is turning into a living, breathing work of art! All the brain child of a Guatemalan journalist, Harris Whitbeck, who was inspired by a similar project in a poor, urban area of Rio de Janiero in Brazil. It is a small, quiet, non-touristy village. As a result it is not geared towards tourists in that there are no bars, cafes or restaurants - these are all in Panajachel, about a 20-min drive away. Here you will also find the public docks for the public and private boats to other villages around the lake. Come and see the colours and magic of Santa Catarina for yourself!

It is a place to rest with family or friends, with a beautiful garden, on the shore of the lake and surrounded by 3 volcanoes, mountains and lots of vegetation.
    The view and the tranquility of the place and its location overlooking Lake Atitlan and the Volcanoes !!!
    "CASA JUCANYA" is located in a residential area of Panajachel, Solola, facing the most beautiful lake in the world, "Lake Atitlan".
  • Beautiful grounds and lake house. Across the street from lake and very close to town. Employees very nice and willing to help. Nice place to relax

    Sunciree2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • This house is perfect for groups. 3 well-sized rooms with bathrooms. We spent most of our time outside as the grounds are beautiful. The house is located across the street from the lake and a 10 minute walk to town. The view from the house is slightly obstructed by trees, but the privacy they provide is worth it. Would def stay again.

    Jacob2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We'll be back . Love it here.

    Leslie2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • It doesn’t get much better than this as far as places to stay at Lake Atitlan. Not only is this a very nice, well equipped, clean house with lots of light coming in through its huge windows, but it is lake front and surrounded by beautiful gardens and landscaping as well. There was always someone around to help us with whatever we might need. It is not exactly what one would call centrally located, but a nice walk along the beach will get you to roads from which you can easily reach any number of places in the center of Panajachel. It is a perfect location though, if you like quiet. I highly recommend this place!

    Patricia2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great and spacious house right next to the lake. The staff was great and very helpful. Nothing but good things to say about this house. Definitely recommended.

Our cozy newly built casitas are situated on the outskirts of Panajachel. They are perfect for solo travellers or couples. The property is located on the road to Santa Catarina Palopo, only a few minutes away from the center of Panajachel. The area is very quiet and peaceful, yet not too far from town. Ideal for people who like to rest and enjoy the beauty of nature.
    There are three bungalows situated on the property as well as a deck featuring a breathtaking view on to lake Atitlan. The deck is perfect for an early morning coffee to contemplate the view or a yoga practice if you fancy that. Alternatively, you can go for a hike or rent a bicycle in Panajachel. There are many beautiful places nearby to explore. The casita has a fully equipped kitchen, a flat-screen tv, wifi and a little balcony with a stunning view onto the lake. The casita is also equipped with blinds in the kitchen and black outs in the bedroom to protect from the sun or if you wish to sleep in.

There is a private hot shower and dry toilet off of the balcony.
    Quiet forest, next to the main road theres no public transportation near by,so is preferible to have own car.
  • The place is beautiful, the view is spectacular. To get out of the routine and be connected with nature. Super friendly everyone. 100 points !!!!

    Margarita2018-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place is magical. A cabin in the woods, the best view of the lake you could ever have. It has perfect spaces for yoga and meditation (on the deck!). Everybody is so nice and the dogs are so much fun, its a place so full of life that electricity is not needed. There was no breakfast but everything else was exceeded expectations!

    Mariana2018-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is beautiful, a unique view of the lake, full of nature and tranquility. Good attention and a lot of hospitality

    Josue2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for an experience of peace and relaxation this is it. Here you can dive into nature and the beauty that comes with it. Observe your thoughts and free yourself from daily stress. Sometimes the simplest thing is what brings more peace ...

    America2018-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Chakana Cabin provides a true Lake Atitlan experience from your own spot in the clouds and a part of the El Castillo community. We enjoyed breakfast and community meals just up the hill in the castle and with those staying in the bus or hostel accommodations there and yoga and meditation on the main platform. And we also spent days to ourselves in the cabin since it has all you need. The cabin is a new construction project and thus some details are still rustic but not a problem, just enjoy the view and adventure, you won't be disappointed. El Castillo is 25 minutes from Panajachel by car or can be easily reached by bus then tuk tuk. Host is available for pick-up in Pana too.

  • A very charming and peaceful place, on the outskirts of the city.

    Edith2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • amazing place! it was very clean. it is a bit far from the market (20 min walk, or 10Q tuktuk). you can hear everything happening in the house, but we were lucky and had the place to ourselves. sadly, we were there on a windy night and the trees were scratching the tin roof to the point where we could not sleep at all.

    Located on the outskirts of Panajachel but worlds away from the hustle and bustle, this brand new, one-of-a-kind, two-story loft will wow you with its panoramic, 180-degree views of Lake Atitlan and surrounding villages. Soak in the views from almost every corner of this property – including the hot tub situated on a private terrace complete with chaise lounge chairs to soak up the sun! The upper level of the loft has a spacious balcony with oversized hammock & Acapulco chairs, living room, dining room and fully-equipped kitchen.

The front bedroom has two twin beds (that can be combined to make a king-size bed) and ceiling to floor windows. The rear bedroom has a queen-size bed. The lower level of the loft also has a roomy bathroom, complete with rain head shower and plenty of hot water. The nearby villages of Panajachel and Santa Catarina Palopo can be reached on foot in about 15 to 20 minutes, or by tuk-tuk (three-wheeled moto taxi) in about five minutes. Other amenities include: • High-speed Wi-Fi • Smart TV with Netflix • Complimentary multi-lingual concierge service to arrange a variety of amenities including: ground transportation, lake tours in private boat (with or without bilingual guide), private cook, massage therapist, hiking and mountain biking tours that culminate with a gourmet picnic, shopping service to stock your rental with any beverage or grocery items you would like to find upon arrival.

    Lake Atitlan Lofts are perched on a hillside with spectacular views of the entire lake. The lofts are located just outside of Panajachel (and outside all the noise and 'hub bub' of Pana) yet close enough to walk to the center of Pana, or go in three-wheeled moto taxi for a nominal cost.
  • If you need a place close to Panajachel please stay here so you can treat yourself. This place was the highlight of my trip with an unbeatable view of the sunset.

    Mohammed2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • It is a beautiful house, with modern and impeccable decoration. All the time you have immediate answers and the best part is the view you have

    Jessica2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • one of the best places in my life!...just simple like this! wonderfull!

    Adriana2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Just book this! This loft is one of the most amazing places we’ve ever stayed—even after traveling to 70 countries. The views are the very best on the lake. The bed is super comfortable. Everything was sparkling clean. Definitely take advantage of the extra services David will coordinate. We did the boat trip with Pedro, massages, and breakfasts and dinners prepared in the loft (which were unbelievably delicious). Miguel is an excellent property manager and Juan can take you into town via tuk tuk easily. The hot tub is a nice touch, too. So calming and wonderful to spend a few days here at the lake.

    Lisa2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful loft with a gorgeous view. The bed was soft and the hot tub/outdoor areas are amazing. There were a few cons since this place is pricey for the area... if there is a family in the neighboring loft you will hear them. It is also not easy to get into town. If you are looking for a place to walk from this is not it. They give you a phone with a tuk tuk driver but it's not guaranteed they will be available. The tuk tuk driver they give you also charges more then others in panajachel. This place is amazing and if you are looking for a place to chill outside the city then it's for you but I would not recommend for short trips.

    Shanna2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The photos do not even do this place justice... it was better than we could have imagined. The sunsets were beyond words, too! David was a very kind host - quick to respond, attentive, full of suggestions. There is no direct access to the water, but a local beach was easy to find, towards Pana and about 20/25 mins walk. The walks to Pana/Santa Catorina are roughly 30 minutes. But a tuk-tuk is less than 10 and super cheap. We would stay here again without question. Thanks David!

    Beautiful apt. , 2 queen size beds, kitchenette and breakfast bar. Unbelievable, hypnotic view on top floor just below hotel owners penthouse. Unit is in the Riviera Atitlan Hotel but privately owned. You have access to the parking, restaurant, swimming pool and grounds. The jacuzzi can be use only when they have it on for the regular hotel guests. Private apartments can not use all the amenities. Beautiful room, the view transforms you.
    It is on 14th floor overlooking one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Aldous Huxley called it THE most beautiful lake in the world. Kitchenette has refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. THIS SUITE HAS NO OVEN, SO YOU CAN NOT COOK except in microwave.
    Whats great about the small bay the hotel is on, very quiet and private....just outside the bustle of town, but still within walking distance or $1.30 tuk-tuk ride to town. There is a beautiful nature preserve with zip lines, some runs over 1500 ft. and butterfly tent right behind the hotel, entrance $5 US. Zip lining costs more but is in the nature reserve.
  • The experience was very special. Very nice place and much better lake view. Excellent service. Highly recommended!

    Gianni2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • All very beautiful and clean, the location is excellent and the view stunning. Highly recommended!

    Daniel2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • The pool is clean and warm. The complex is very well maintained. The lunch corner is very practical for breakfasts. The view is incredible! Being outside of downtown Panajachel brings tranquility. The zipline in the Atitlan Reserve is right next to it is really to do! Thank you!

    Isabelle2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is the best, the view it has towards the lake makes it perfect!

    Jose2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

  • Pat’s place was amazing! Just outside of town, but easy to get transport to the main area of Panahachel. Love the quiet and beautiful view it offers. A bonus was that the nature reserve is only a 5 min walk if you’re into that sort of stuff. Look forward to staying again in the future!

    Great for staycation, work-home alternative with family. 10 min walking to the most tranquil side of the lake, 20 min walking to Calle Santander. Grab tut tuc easy and by this you can go anywhere just in 5 minutes: . Popular not fancy but safety neighborhood. Beautiful decorated with raw cotton curtain and cypress wood roof and floor. The garden has furniture where you can read, drink a coffee or just take a nap. Garden is shared with other guest. Parking is available, see other things to note
    The house is made of stone from the river San Francisco nearby located, surrounded by big windows. . The linens are 100% cotton for freshness and comfort. We use Nordic style bedding with duvet fill and duvet cover to ensure hygiene, cleanliness and water efficiency in each guest change. The living room has a big sofa where you can laid down and two puffs where you can relax. It is allowed to take the puffs outside to laid down in the garden. The kitchen is fully equipped and designed to create the scene of every Maya style meals. Maya style meals were centered on the firewood where the women cook and the rest of the family sitting around chatting seeing how the tortillas were made. The kitchen has drinkable tap water consisted in sediment filter, carbon filter and UV filter, so We appreciate if you bring your water bottle to refill. We use solar water heater so if you can expect very hot water to shower, use in the kitchen or bathroom sink At night, you can ignite the fire and sit on the logs that a few years ago were cut from the garden or go to the bedroom, open the curtains and see the fire while you fall asleep with all the lights off. The garden is relaxing and has BBQ space with a table and logs for chairs. There is a small plantation of peppermint and two trees of lemon that you can cut and make a mojito or lemonade while you relax on the sun chairs.
    The house is located cross the river San Francisco, in Jucanyá where local indigenous people live. The neighborhood, “el barrio” as we call here in Guatemala is not fancy with narrow streets During the school season, you can see the children coming and going from school. Most of the people who live there are poor and if you talk to them, they are very friendly and can give you directions if you need to find something, they know everything around because most of them works on restaurants and pubs over Calle Santander. You can knock the next door Neighbor “Don Demetrio” who own a boat and can take you to any place by boat. At night there is a lads who sell food near the house. There are many tortillas lady’s seller also. 3 blocks from the house, you can get to the beach and from there if you walk to the left you can find good places to swim but if you choose the right you reach the river, seldom of shops and the famous Calle Santander.
  • I stayed here twice as the place was so incredible and Isabel was such a wonderful host. Communication was key and Isabel’s fast responses and help were much appreciated and made my stay so much better. I felt comfortable and safe in this place and got to enjoy the outdoor space during the day and then relax and chill indoors with a comfy bed and Netflix at night. Such a beautiful place with everything you need! I cannot say enough good things about Isabel and her place! She was able to arrange my transportation as well amidst all my flight changes and changed plans and was in constant communication with me. Amazing! Got to enjoy the short walk to the beach too :).

    Proud2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing! Isabel was so helpful throughout and always quick to respond if I needed help (transportation questions mostly). The place is in a more quiet, residential area but I liked this better than the hectic town center of Pana. It is 10-15min walking distance from the main town as well as the beach. I walked along the beach while I stayed here and loved it! The place is huge and the bed is comfy. The bathroom is well appointed and has everything you need - as a bit of a girly girl my favorite was the light up mirror :). Hot water was available which was nice. Full kitchen with everything you need and filtered water. Had a TV with Netflix if you want a quiet night in. Garden was also super cute! I loved this place. Definitely recommend this place and Isabel is such a wonderful host!

    Proud2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and comfortable!

    Mandy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • FANTASTICO!! Isabel has created a tranquil, beautiful oasis. Open, light drenched, two story windows, modern lines and furniture are the first things one sees. All of this great space is surrounded by a peaceful and calm garden. The location is wonderful! I loved being a tuk tuk ride (71 cents US $) away from great restaurants, markets and the beach. The house is clean, the WIFI excellent. It was fun to have Netflix and YouTube streaming. I enjoyed hearing English being spoken after so many months on the road. The all cotton linens were lovely, the bed comfy; there is a great shower, with lots of hot water. Check in was a breeze! Emma and Henry, the housekeeper and gardener/IT guru we’re kind, thoughtful and efficient. Communication with Isabel was OUTSTANDING. Isabel is the benchmark for immediate, responsive connection. I couldn’t quite believe the speed at which she responded to me. Well done Isabel!! Staying at Casa Aparicio was like having my own private villa for a week. For a wonderful experience in Panajachel, stay at Casa Aparicio!!

  • Great accommodation, especially for small groups. Lodges are fairly new, but simple but purposefully furnished, spotless, and offer plenty of space. Check in and out was easy, the front desk was always busy. Always felt safe. Location on the beach, but not for swimming. About a small bridge can be reached in 5 minutes on foot to the beach promenade, otherwise for 5Q with the Tuctuc. I would book again.

    Julian2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Hello! I loved the stay, we went with my family to two villas and the hospitality was incredible, quite flexible with our requirements and they were always pending and the order before our doubts. The incredible view, very close to the lake and perfect point if what you are looking for is to be a little further from the hustle and bustle of Panajachel. Thank you!

  • Amazing house with incredible views of the lake. David helped us organize cooks to prepare our meals and with excursions out on the lake and in town. Had a great time staying here!

    Sean2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • We just got back home from our Guatemala vacation. We stayed at David’s house while at Lake Atitlan for a week. We truly had a great time there. The house’s location is perfect despite the fact that it’s on a very steep hill but the view was incredible. I agree with others reviewing here that the mattresses are pretty basic and that the house might not be ideal for two families with small children as the fourth bedroom is located in separate building from the rest of the house. You will have to vote who gets the master bedroom because the other bedrooms are pretty small. The wifi didn’t work most of the time and I kept on receiving a message that the modem and the router needs a restarting but we didn’t need wifi that much anyway. The place needs an update especially the pool that is loosing many tiles but overall it’s a gorgious villa and the view of Lake Atitlan and Santa Catarina village from the house is stunning!!! Agree 100% that the locals that managed the house, cooked and provided help were outstanding. We truly are Thankful for Antonio the house menager , Flavio the house concierge for our stay and Ramiro who was our driver for local transportation around the area. The trio made us feel truly welcomed. Absolutely great team! We could not have picked a better place despite the fact it’s not a beachfront/waterfront place. The drive to Pana was only few minutes away. We also walked a lot to explore the area and meet with locals and if we needed to get across the Lake, Flavio was always there to help accommodate a boat or anything we asked for. I have to mention that my friend’s teenage daughter left her expensive apple gear at the house after our departure that she noticed she was missing after already arriving to Antigua. Flavio, Antonio and Ramiro bent over backwards to go back there and find it and then drove 3 hrs one way to get it to us. The trio provided us with truly 5 star experiance !!!!!

    Agnes2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. The view was spectacular! The house was clean. The pictures don’t do this place justice. The house is located on a very steep hill so if you do not have a reliable car it may be a bit of a struggle to reach the house. I would definitely recommend this house to others. I look forward to returning in the future!

    Guillermo2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • David's homes are always so beautifully decorated and are always very clean! The pool and view is stunning. Of course Gabriel was so helpful with our booking and we had Angela make her famous raviolis the one night and then another gentleman came and made pizza the second night - I forget his name but we highly reomend him, and Angela! The hill is a deterrent to get up to the house and if you have a 4x4 you are better off. But the view and house is well worth it.

People working at the house are very nice and very helpful! We have a property at the lake but staying at this house is completely a different experience!!!! We always choose this option!!!

    Bety2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Best Airbnb experience ever. The house was perfect - stylish, comfortable and great location. David went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to make our stay on the lake absolutely amazing. From arranging our car transfers to sending us local tips, he anticipated all of our needs. The caretakers, Maria and Jere, were amazing also! Food was delicious every morning, and they helped us with anything we needed on the property. Would definitely return!

    Cozy adobe house surrounded by lots of trees and nature , spacious environments full of natural light. A king size bed delicately placed on a wooden floor with the best views of the house A deck that looks like you're inside the trees, an ideal place to have breakfast in the freshness of dawn or have a glass of wine or coffee at sunset with its imposing 3 volcanoes, the guardians of the lake. A hot tub over the garden that makes you feel inside the forest.
    Casa Terracota A secluded, romantic hilltop retreat… Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Santa Catarina Palopo and a 10-20 minute drive from Panajachel, this newly completed villa definitely has the ‘wow’ factor! Casa Terracota is situated on a large, forested property and will give you the sensation of truly being secluded when, in fact, you will be around the corner from great restaurants, shopping and more. After ascending a long stairway from the private parking lot to the house, you will immediately realize that the trek up the stairs was completely worth it! (By the way, the caretaker on the property, Juan Pablo or Antonio will be more than happy to carry your luggage, groceries, etc between the villa and the parking area.) Once at the top of the stairs, you will be blown away by the panoramic views afforded by Villa Terracota’s setting. The villa has an open floor plan and the ceiling-to-floor windows at the front of the two-story structure perfectly frame the views of Lake Atitlan and it’s surrounding volcanoes as seen from above the lush vegetation on the property. Casa Terracota boasts all the modern conveniences you could hope for in a vacation villa – with brand new furnishings throughout including a comfortable L-shaped sofa in the living room that converts to two twin-beds, a fully-equipped kitchen, king-size bed in upstairs loft area, 43” flat-screen TV, king-size bed, black-out shades, and a day bed in the upstairs loft. Other amenities that make this property extra special are the soak tub in the bathroom, the outdoor hot tub and expansive front deck both of which offer jaw-dropping views.
    We have two houses as neighbors, which are houses that the owners use for their vacations, the immensity of the property makes you feel that you have no neighbors. For convenience we have 2 Hotels restaurants within 5-10 minutes walking one is the Hotel Casa Palopo and the other is the Hotel Villas de Santa Catarina, the town of Santa Catarina one of the most picturesque villages on the lake. And Panajachel which is full of restaurants and Coffe shops 15-20 minutes by car.

    The great thing about my neighborhood is the local, un-commercial feel of a quiet cul-de-sac. The neighbors are mostly indigenous and friendly and will not importune travelers. There is no through traffic. The street is generally quiet. The property is mostly surrounded by trees hosting a surprising variety of wildlife, besides a wide array of birds and the usual squirrels, you might get lucky and spot the owls and possums that make their home in the surrounding trees.
  • Karen’s apartment felt like our home away from home during our time in Pana. It was wonderful to have a two bedroom apartment all to ourselves. The location is a short walk to a beach used mainly by locals and families. It is a quick tuk tuk ride to the center of town. Would definitely stay again.

    Richard2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Karen’s place is exactly as advertised - clean, comfortable and in a quiet part of town. The washer was very aporiciated :). Communication with Karen was easy and fast, all in all, I recommend!

    Daniela2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Karen is very quick to respond, helpful at check-in, and very warm. The location is on the edge of town but a great spot, not too far. We had a great stay!

    Cassandra2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • I loved every moment at Karen's place! It is in a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful garden and hummingbirds, and the apartment was so cozy! Some days I just stayed there working and relaxing, listening to the birds. Karen has taken care of all the details, the apartments have everything you need. Thank you Karen for having me, I hope to see you again. :)

    Molla2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Karen’s place is so quiet and peaceful, she’s very kind and helpful all the time, if you looking for a place to get up in the morning with the song of the birds, that is the perfect place.

    Ana Maria2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • David’s Airbnb has a breathtaking view from the room, very private place and in nature, a short ride to Panajachel, super cozy and romantic , would definitely recommend.

    Jennifer2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I visited recently stayed at David's place and we had a wonderful time. The apartment is brand new with very nice amenities including a wonderful bed with wonderful bedding. The bedroom has an outstanding view of the lake and the volcanoes. We loved staying here. It is about 10 minutes outside of panajachel by tuk tuk. This was what we wanted and felt like we were going away from the tourist bustle for the evenings. We were set up with a tuk tuk driver who we would text and he would immediately come pick us up. Very convenient. Overall- if you don't mind being a few mintues outsides of panajachel, very well worth it. A gem!

    Fabiola2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

    Soyeon2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • David’s place was beautiful. The picture don’t serve enough justice. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend staying here.

    Jessica2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This is by far the best Airbnb I've ever stayed in. I chose it for the images and the reviews and I couldn't have been more accurate with my decision. It was my girlfriend's birthday and I wanted to surprise her with a surprise trip, I knew that she would love Panajachel but what I did not know was that this house was going to enclose in that beautiful space the best of Guatemala, 3 volcanos, 1 lake, best vibes ever and a hot jacuzzi. If I start describing everything we liked, I would never finish writing and you will never finish reading it. There is no photo that does justice to the beauty of the place or a precise description that manages to convey the peace of that house. David is the best host of all time, Miguel is excellent with advice and recommendations and Juan Pablo, the driver is super friendly. He speaks perfect English. A tuk-tuk to Panajachel is 20 quetzales per person ($ 2.75) This place totally worth the price. Go ahead, reserve and don't hesitate, you will fall in love with the views.

    Pam2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly like photos with an even nicer view. The house is beautiful with unique finishings. Comfy beds. Good bird-watching from patio, against panoramic volcano and lake back-drop. The hosts were quick to answer any questions, very patient and friendly. Great location, 10 min walk from town. All around excellent stay.

    Erynn2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • There is only one thing to say about David and his loft in Lake Atitlan...Amazing!!! Do yourself a favor and stay here. The views were breathtaking and the loft was super clean. He was helpful before and during our trip. Set us up with transportation from the airport, connected us with people you can trust to show you around Guatemala and assist you if you need anything in the loft. He is super attentive and even gave us ideas on where to eat and things to do during our stay. Simply amazing host. 100% recommend.

    Jesenia2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • The view is amazing, very spacious, clean, and very comfortable. The stairs were a little steep but they added to the aesthetics of the place. Miguel was awesome, he was a huge help and we only communicated with him for any questions, check-in, and check-out. The home is right in between Panajachel and Santa Catarina (about a 5 minute tuc tuc ride to each) while the two town are in walking distance, be aware there are steep hills. Overall an excellent place to stay.

    Dominika2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place to stay. The place was so clean and well-kept. The view of the lake is incredible and the location is just a few minutes from Panajachel (great shopping). So easy to get a tuk tuk right in front of the place. Check in was Easy and quick. The beds were so comfortable. It was amazing architecture. Highly recommended staying here, probably the best air bnb I’ve ever experienced.

    Two light and airy, spacious open concept lofts which are joined via double doors on the front balconies. Located on the outskirts of Panajachel, outside the hustle and bustle of town, yet a short drive or tuk tuk ride to the center of town!

  • Outstanding hospitality and the most beautiful Airbnb I’ve ever stayed in. David is a super host and he lives up to that title, helping us arrange all the transportation -to making sure we had everything we needed and then more! This was our first time in Guatemala and this location was perfect. From the airport it’s a 3 Hour drive, however the first city you reach is called Panajachel (10 min from lofts) where David had arrange the driver to stop at a local market and we were able to load up on groceries. The city also has a really neat downtown area with a good restaurants and nightlife. I especially loved the list of amenities we were able to choose from to enhance our stay, we took advantage of the boat and had a full day on the lake exploring all the different towns. You will feel extremely safe staying at these lofts nestled on the cliff side in the gorgeous and vibrant town of Santa Catarina Polopo. To top off our trip after a full day of exploring we were able to come back to our lofts and unwind in the jacuzzis. Highly recommend not passing this choice up and staying at these lofts- or any of David’s Airbnb‘s-because you will not be disappointed.

    Natalia2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We rented both Lofts for our stay, as we were a group of six. The layout is amazing, as the Lofts are a mirror of each other, thus creating a great space to lounge, eat, drink and share. The cherry on the cake is the view from the Lofts: lake Atitlan spreads out in front of the two terraces, and the 3 volcanoes are right in front. Our stay was simply majestic, exceeding our expectations and creating lasting memories. Thanks David!

    **New Listing! Stunning mountain views and lakeside waterfront all in one property. Perched 150 feet above the water, this charming cottage enjoys a 100 degree view of the lake. The large property it's located on is covered with lush vegetation and has many areas to sit back and relax, watch the boats pass by and enjoy the sunrise (AND sunset). Enjoy the beauty of Lake Atitlan from a truly spectacular vantage point. Only a 15 minute walk to Santa Cruz dock; 10 minutes to Free Cerveza.
    The property is accessible by boat to our private dock or by footpath from the neighboring villages of Santa Cruz and Jaibalito, each a 15 min walk away (you cannot drive to the property). To see more reviews of this popular property, go to: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/165035. This Casita is a 860 sq. ft (80 sq. m) 2-bedroom house with a full kitchen and ample patio space from which to enjoy the impressive view. Constructed with adobe walls, the house stays cool during the day and comfortable at night. If you do get a chill, light a fire in the fireplace while you gaze at the stars and the villages across the lake. This is a place for lovers of nature and those seeking a peaceful respite from the noise and commotion of the bigger towns. **Note, the walk up from our private dock may shorten your breath, but the view will take it away! This is a location for able-bodied guests who don't mind more than a few stairs (120 to be exact) but, trust us, it's worth it. (And if you don't trust us, see the reviews for the other house on the property.)
    The property is located on the mountainside along the footpath between the charming Mayan villages of Santa Cruz la Laguna and Jaibalito (15-20 min walk to either) -- the only two towns on the lake without car access. Visitors who discover this part of the lake at the end of their trip often lament they didn't discover it sooner. This is the quintessential lake-living experience for those who want to get off the beaten path and away from the tourist traps of Panajachel, San Marcos and San Pedro (not to mention the firecrackers and loud music), and immerse themselves in tranquil highland Guatemalan life -- while still being just a 20 minute taxi-boat ride away from "the action." Jaibalito remains a very indigenous town, where the local language, Kaqchikel, is spoken before Spanish. There is a small, eclectic expat community in the town which is centered around the Posada Jaibalito--a must-visit spot for cheap, good food and interesting conversation. Santa Cruz's charm lies in the paved walkways winding through lovely homes and a long walkable waterfront. Rent a kayak or paddle board or even go scuba diving. Be sure to go up to the village to take in the incredible view (and a meal or drink) from CECAP, which is run by a US-based non-profit that does great work in the community.
  • This casita is a great place to stay if you are looking to explore Lake Atitlan. The views are amazing and you have a whole house to yourself!

    Aaron2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Casita in peace between Santa Cruz and Jaibalito offering a splendid panorama ... but which is deserved at the end of a hundred steps or a path of mules sometimes steep. Perfect place to rest and enjoy Lake Atitlan. Good physical condition essential. Erynne is very responsive and always ready to provide valuable advice. On the spot Andres puts his arms and his good humor at our service (very useful to raise or lower the luggage ...)

    Maryline2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Our second time at Erynne’s place was just as amazing as the first. Amazing views, beautiful verdant grounds sprouting with orchids and cactus.. just a tremendous experience at an excellent value

    Cardin2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Erynne gives you accurate information about the house and how to get there. The location is great if you want to get away from the bustle of the larger towns. The trail between Santa Cruz and Jaibalito offers easy hiking between the towns. The casita is rustic but clean and the view from the balcony is amazing. Our family enjoyed swimming off the dock as well.

    Doris2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Totally recommend this place. The hosts give you clear informations about the place and clear directions before getting there so you don’t forget anything. The place is very clean and the view is great. You have everything you need there.

    Maxime2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had an unforgettable, picturesque vacation at the casita! As other reviewers noted, it’s quite a hike (up steep, but well maintained stairs) to the property from the dock, but this seems to be the case with every property around the lake. As a host, Erynne went above and beyond in assisting us, and all the drivers, boat captains, and house staff were incredibly hospitable and helpful, even with our atrocious Spanish skills. The one thing I’ll note that I didn’t see in other reviews is how physically incredible this property is- the casita’s architecture and landscaping all around the property made me feel like I was in a design magazine and botanic garden. The colors at sunset reminded us of Nice, France. We couldn’t have picked a better place. Don’t hesitate to book here!

    Caitlin2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a little hideaway that you will never want to leave, this is it! Tucked in the cliffside near Santa Cruz this 2 bedroom stay boasts a wonderful outdoor living space with a fireplace as the center piece! I would recommend this home to anyone that doesn't mind a little hike to your door and wants to enjoy all the beautiful Lake Atitlan has to offer!

    Doug2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location and view! Several restaurants/shops selling snacks, etc/places to rent kayaks-paddle boards within 15-20 minutes walk. You can walk to 2 different public docks. Sunrise and sunset views were amazing. Highly recommend staying here!
