Santa Cruz La Laguna house description

Accommodations: Two level House; In the first floor you will find an open plan kitchen-living room-dining room space, one bedroom and a spacious bathroom –with a huge bath tub. The second floor hosts a big master bedroom with a fire place as well as a little kids bedroom, and a couple of terraces from which you can admire the spectacular surroundings.

La casita blanca – stands as a haven of tranquility and peace in what is probably the last untouched valley of Lake Atitlan. Located in the outskirts of quaint Santa Cruz -the only road free town on the Lake basin- it has a lovely lush garden from where you can enjoy a gorgeous view of the Lake and the volcanoes, and breath taking rock mountains and cliffs on either side.

Built as a mix of Spanish traditional and modernism. Furniture, doors, bathroom fittings and lots of other details were salvaged from demolished colonial buildings. It is an independent ecological home, the house runs on solar power for lighting and electrical needs, uses water from a nearby spring, has facilities to recycle and compost garbage.

Internet access, for a small user fee.

It is a 10 minute walk to the gorgeous environmental hotel I built and created 10 years ago now, Islaverde, where you will be able to enjoy gorgeous beach front gardens, a little dock from where to swim or get boat rides, a lake front restaurant decorated with hanging bromeliads –serving world class organic cuisine-, sauna, massage services, healing treatments and yoga classes.

The house offers internet and daily one and a half hour cleaning service. Extra cleaning service can be arranged for an extra cost, as well as laundry service, nanny service and spanish classes, as well as lake tours.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: It was a dream come true, worked for many years in the world of finance, which keep me traveling and living abroad in the true Latino America. After leaving my job in search for a higher quality of life, I traveled for two years looking for the perfect spot to build my house... finally I found Lake Atitlan fell in love with everything that this magical place offers and I have been here ever since!

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Cruz La Laguna:
                      Like most people: ''I was going to travel farther, but it was so lovely here I just stopped...'

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house was conceived as an ecological challenge: my dream was to build a space from where to enjoy nature while respecting nature, but without having to give up on life style or beauty and harmony.
