Santa Cruz La Laguna house description

Los Elementos is located in Santa Cruz la Laguna, the most beautiful and tranquil village on the lake. It is the perfect base for exploring the lake and it’s Mayan villages. Spend the days hiking the mountains and volcanoes that surround the lake, or relax with a day of pampering at our on-site spa.

Enjoy a morning swim in the lake, a mid-day kayak tour, and an afternoon siesta in a hammock. Imagine awaking each morning to the sight of majestic volcanoes just outside your window, the sounds of tropical birds, and the taste of fresh fruit grown on the property. Spanish language school nearby.

The property has 50 meters of lakefront, with the best swim beach in the area. Private dock, kayaks, and lake shore recreation area are yours to enjoy. Private boat is available for exploring the further reaches of the lake for additional rental fees. This property is only accessible by boat, so the quiet tranquility, nature, and privacy are unparalleled to none. While there is no road access, launchas (water taxis) run every 30 minutes and stop just next door. Several excellent restaurants are within walking distance.

Backed by dramatic mountains, the views in all directions are spectacular. A seasonal creek runs next to the property during the summer and fall, and extensive hiking trails start just outside your door.

Casa Sirena/Mermaid house: 750 sq. ft. sleeps 2-3.
Large indoor/outdoor area, 400 sq. ft. (22 ’x 18’) includes kitchen, dining area and living space. Semi-open to the lake views with covered roof and protected from the elements. The fully equipped kitchen is ready to prepare the freshest of meals from our locally grown produce with fresh fish from the lake or Pacific Ocean.

Interior rooms total 350 square feet and include a bedroom with queen size bed and second dining table. Second bedroom includes a large wardrobe and dressing area, and has a single bed. Perfect for a couple, or a family with 1-2 children. Bathroom with hot water shower. Two person Kohler jetted tub.

Spa is separate from the rental, and does not have access to your private gardens. However you may enjoy the spa amenities while you are visiting. The spa has lots of comfy seating and is located just feet from the lake shore. Massage, facials, waxing and other spa services available on-site. Enjoy two patios, each 200 sq. ft. in size for relaxing in the morning or at sunsets. Solar heated shower and bathroom.
