  • Perfect spot for our honeymoon.

    "We were on honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot. We intended to stay for one week but ended up extending our stay to two! The view is like no other -- woke up every morning to the beautiful sight of San Pedro volcano and Lake Atitlan as the bed faces directly out the giant windows. Can slide the windows right open so you can feel the outdoors. Private dock allowed us to go for a nice swim every morning. Very peaceful and quiet. Far enough from the 'busy' streets of San Pedro and Panajachel although the towns were a nice, short boat ride across whenever we wanted to go. Pleasant walk into the town of San Marcos where we did our grocery shopping daily. We arrived pretty late in the evening for our first night but we were able to purchase some seafood and wine right on the property which was very convenient! The fully-equipped kitchen made cooking all of our meals very easy. Big, comfortable bed, fireplace, hammock, the most picturesque view, etc. what more do you need! The apartment and overall landscaping of the entire property is pretty impressive. Clean, spacious and well-maintained. Pierre and staff were very hospitable, attending to all of our needs but at the same time they were great about giving us our privacy. Always very helpful and just really nice people which was great. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!"

  • Beautiful Beach Front Paradise

    "My Family and I stayed 4 nights at this beautiful beach front home in Hawaii Guatemala. The owner was very responsive, informative, and easy to work with. When we arrived we were greeted by the property manager, Abalino and his family and they were there to help any time during our stay with anything and everything we needed. The home is beautiful with great views right on the beach. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and am hoping to visit again in the future."
