Panajachel cottage description

Casa Solhana is one of two houses we have for rent in two of the most naturally beautiful areas of Guatemala. The other house is situated on the River Lanquin near to the stunningly beautiful National Park of Semuc Champey. The 2 houses can also be found at the web page www.raxha-rentals.com.
Casa Solhana was newly renovated in 2013 to create a rental for small groups and families wanting a home away from home. This fully equipped house allows your party a stay with comfort, peace and recreational facilities, close to Panajachel's center, and only 3 minutes walk from the Lake, in the most peaceful area of Panajachel.
The house was renovated using cypress windows, doors tables and wardrobes with attention to detail that give it a warm cottage feel.
Our house provides you with a fully equipped kitchen , 8 person dinner table, 3 bedrooms that sleep comfortably up to 8 people and 2 bathrooms with twin head showers. Other facilities include a beautiful 'Santa Fe Style' fireplace, large flat screen TV, DVD player, DVDs, cable TV, fast wireless, washing machine, iron and ironing board, ping pong table and dart board,BBQ, portable MP3 speakers, board games , sand box, toys and slide for young kids.
To maximize the ease and comfort of your stay we can offer a morning cleaning and washing service whenever requested at an additional cost. A mobile phone for your use during your stay and 2 push bikes for popping to town and the market are provided. If you wish we can even provide a fantastic home cooked breakfast at an additional cost.
The main en suite bedroom with 2013 pillow top King size bed has 2 open air balconies which look towards the lake and over the garden. This room has a comfortable sofa bed, coffee table, fan, dimmer lighting and wardrobe. The 'garden bedroom' with 2013 queen size bed, and wardrobe has private access to the lush flower filled garden, hammock and gazebo area. Next door we have the 'Twin room' with 2 single beds, large wardrobe and toys for kids. All bedrooms come with cotton sheets, new fluffy pillows, and tasteful decoration. We provide complementary flowers throughout the house and a large seasonal fruit basket upon your arrival.
If you visit us in your private or rental vehicle you will be happy to find that we have private parking for 2 cars, and still leaving space for the ping pong table.
The water is heated by a solar system with electric backup that ensures constant piping hot water.
The house is situated in a very quiet part of town and surrounded by lush greenery and trees and has a view towards the nearby hills, and a small part of the Lake. Most of the year the walls that separate the house from the road and neighbours are blooming with vibrant multi coloured bougainvillea and other flowers that attracts hummingbirds.
Casa Solhana is ideal for families. Having 2 young kids ourselves means we took pleasure in adding the touches of a sand box, small slide, pin pong table, dart board, and DVDs for all ages. Welcome home!

                  Visitors to Lake Atitlan will enjoy the peace and beauty of Lake Atitlan, and enjoy visiting the villages around its shores. The lake´s inhabitants are mainly indigenous who speak 3 main Maya languages and dress in a wonderful variety of colorful hand made textiles. Panajcahel can be a lively town at night and a great place to shop by day. It is the capital town of the lake and therefore it´s main hub. If you like adventure you can also find this at the lake. World class paragliding, kayaking trips and volcano hikes make it an ideal location for adventure and relaxation.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: I am originally from the UK but have been living abroad for 18 years. After traveling and working in Latin America for nearly 3 years I decided to settle in Guatemala where I co-developed a well known hostel in Lanquin, where you can find the breathtaking Semuc Champey National Park. About 5 years ago I decided to move to Panajachel with my wife and 2 Young daughters.

                  Why the Owner Chose Panajachel:
                  I decided to renovate this house, mainly for its location and for having 3 bedrooms. It´s situated in a peaceful part of town only 3 minutes walk from the lake,and 3 minutes from our family home. It´s a fantastic point to base yourself for a visit to Panajachel and all of Lake Atitlan. Private boats can be hired from near the house for trips to other Lake side towns.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The house has a property next door that has a large garden, which makes the house feel even more spacious and green. Few Tuc Tucs pass by this road. The security is fantastic in this quiet part of town, and the house has a large main gate and walls which give it superior privacy. Being only a few minutes walk from the lake means that it´s easy to pop off to see the sun set or rise. The house has a very intimate cottage feel, a quaint front porch and green garden. The community where the house is situated is very friendly and has plenty of small shops nearby for buying food and drink for the house.
