Santa Cruz La Laguna villa description

We came from Norway and fell in love with the place. We have built a home for us and our friends with our standard for cleanliness and comfort. The house is made to live in, to enjoy and to relax. So is the garden with avocado trees, banana trees and flowers and a big barbecue. It is also a nice house for children.

The apartment is nice and easy to live in. You will feel at ease, comfortable and unstressed.

Cruze is our groundskeeper, and looks after the house and the garden. He speaks Spanish and is our wonderful helper.

Elaine comes once a week to clean the house the towels and the bedclothes. She also speaks Spanish.

If you want some to cook for you, we can recommend Maria to you, we also can give you telephone numbers to our other good helpers, as the fish dealer (coming one day a week if you ask him) a nice taxi driver. Just ask.

Our good friend who runs:” Los Elementos Adventure Center” can help you plan your holiday activities before you arrive. He can also offer help in arranging transportation from the airport and if you want, arrange someone to meet you in Panajachel for grocery shopping prior to traveling to the house.

You get more information when you contact us. Please remember the time difference when you wait for our reply. (N Y time + 6 hours).

The house is on the lake, and perfect for swimming. A nice path with cobblestone leads to the dock where you can get the boat to Panajachel or other small towns around the lake. Just at the dock you also find some hotels, a place to do yoga, to get massage, a center for high altitude deep diving, a Spanish school, internet café and a little shop. From there you can also take a pickup to the village, or you can walk. In the opposite direction you find a Yoga center, a little further on an Ecohotel, high standard.

You can take many beautiful walks. You can hire a kayak; you can hire a boat with a boatman and make a tour on the lake. You can take a high altitude deep diving certificate, use the place as a center for your exploring of the nearby villages, climb the volcanoes or just relax. All the time you are in this beautiful scenery and the very nice climate.

Do you need more space? There is another apartment in the villa, please contact us for more information.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We have had our vacation in St. Cruz every year since 1999, and build our house in 2008. We live in Norway and spend 3 months in the upper apartment every year. We rent out the bottom-apartment the whole year, see the description above.

              Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz La Laguna:
              We spent five weeks here in 1999, and fell in love with the place and the people

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Short way to the lake. There is no roads, so you have to walk all the time. I hike to the Maya village is a good exercise and a great experience. The Maya people in the village are very friendly.
