"We loved our stay at this lakefront home on beautiful Lake Atitlan! The views are expansive and unrestricted, best enjoyed from the hammock and outdoor dining table. It was the perfect way to unwind after some long days of travel. We enjoyed cooking in the well-equipped kitchen while our kids played games left for guests to use. The home is tasteful and relaxed, very comfortable, and the owner provides detailed information about what to do at the lake. The caretaker was wonderful and made us feel welcomed and safe. This was my favorite stop on our entire vacation. Very highly recommended!"

Beautiful, secluded location to enjoy Lake Atitlan
"We spent 5 days at Casa Wenche and would definitely return. The grounds are breathtaking, with impressive landscaping and endless views of the lake and volcanoes. This property is away from the hustle and traffic of Panajachel but easily accessible by boat. The house is well appointed and will be best enjoyed by the physically fit who are able to navigate the many stairs that connect the home to the village and dock. You also need to be able to board and disembark small boats easily. Casa Wenche is quiet and peaceful, with access to expansive grounds and a nice pool. The caretaker, Ramos, was always available (he lives on the property) and attentive. We also met the welcoming owner, Erik, as he was in town at the main house while we were there. Short boat rides will connect guests with other Atitlan lakeside villages worthy of exploration. A scenic trail connects to a few nearby villages as well. Bring your own groceries from Panajachel
and pack light for minimum hardship in traveling by boat. There are some small restaurants within walking distance, too. Casa Wenche is a great value and a rejuvenating place to be. We recommend staying for several days to get the most out of it. Our only wishes for an even better stay would be for a stand-up fan in case of hot days and some screens on the interior windows to help keep the bugs out."

"I stayed here for two nights with my friends for a birthday weekend and it was fantastic! Before the trip the owner Jeff did an excellent of providing me with all the info and things I needed to do before staying there. He was always willing to talk on the phone and replied to emails rapidly. Also the care taker Abelino and his family were extremely polite and helpful. Abelino was responsive and ready to help us at any moment. They cleaned the pool every morning at 8 and if we needed anything we could just ask. The house was fully equipped with kitchen utinsels, speakers, more than enough beds, AC at night, a beautiful view and close walk to the beach. Working wifi, showers, and Television. This is definitly a place I would stay again and recommend to others."

"Our family just returned from our son's wedding celebration in Antigua and were lucky enough to have reserved this amazing house. Set in a beautiful development, behind a gated wall, the home is simply spectacular. Jaws dropped as the wonderful owner toured us around. Great kitchen, wonderful outdoor seating and eating areas, pool, hot tub, sauna, workout area, office and just a massive master suite. We couldn't recommend this home more highly and thank the owners for making our stay there truly special. Antigua was great, the wedding was a smashing success, and the home was perfect for all eight of us! Thanks!"
