Atitlan house description

You will be hard pressed to find such a magical home with such a magnificent view for less on Lake Atitlan.

This beautiful lake-front home has a large 42' x 10' covered porch that looks out on to the most amazing views of the Lake Atitlan and its three resident volcanoes.

The large, fully-equipped kitchen will make even the most fussy chef happy, while preparing some of the best vegetables and fruit you'll ever taste. A multitude of which are available either from the Saturday market in Santa Cruz or from the local market in Panajachel (Pana).

The upstairs master bedroom and study is combined to make a spectacular living area that has 37 feet of windows looking out over Lake Atitlan. A spacious second bedroom looks out onto the lush gardens at the back and the Meditation Pagoda.

A Turkish, day bed takes up a corner of the living room providing a great place for relaxing and its queen size mattress can sleep two more adult guests if needed (or maybe 4 children turning its uniqueness into an adventure). A fire in the living room's uniquely-shaped hearth will create warm memories for sure.

Showering in our indoor/outdoor heated shower can only be topped by a bath in our stone tub, which has been photographed for a European architectural magazine.

The gardens are magnificent, lovingly created by Shavda, the owner of Sharyanka, and her dedicated guardian/gardener Pascual, over the past two decades. They are a sight to be seen and will take your breath away when you arrive at Sharyanka's private dock by boat.

WiFi internet is available.

Transportation to and from Guatemala City airport can be easily arranged.

A cook can be arranged as well, but there is a great local woman who will prepare meals and bring them piping hot to your table, just ask us for her menu and all you have to do is call her 24 hrs in advance.


Laundry and Clean are available. Just ask for prices.

Daily Cleaning for $2.00 per day.

Mediation Pagoda and Mayan Sauna Included (adults only)

Property Managers Mayan Lake Realty (http://www.mayanlakerealty.com/) are at hand to help you with any enquiries you may have.

Manager info

Why Atitlan:
For Peace, Solace, Privacy, but not too far away for the fabulous rich local Mayan culture. Great for artists, writers, or someone wanting to just get away for a bit. Sharyanka is a most beautiful, memorable, and peaceful place to spend time.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Whether you stay with us or not, Lake Atitlan is a magical experience you will never forget. When we say the lake, we're not just talking about one of the most beautiful bodies of water surrounded by three volcanoes, but about the 13 Mayan, lake-shore communities, and the beauty and color of the Mayan culture. You can get on a boat and sit across from a Mayan family where the father has a machete across his lap, a mother is breast feeding her baby, and their daughter, dressed in colorful traditional traje (clothing) text messaging her friend. A smile directed toward their curious eyes will result in a sunburst of a smile being returned. It is a place of magical memories!
