  • YOU WILL CHERISH THE MEMORIES

    "Firstly, I'm not a review writer. Never wrote one before, probably won't ever write one again. But we were so blown away by our amazing four nights at Casa Tzampoc last week that I couldn't help myself. From our first contact with Barry & Nannette, it felt more like getting back in touch with old friends rather than making travel plans. They had limitless patience for our myriad questions. Even before making our booking, they went out of their way to call us and make sure all of our questions were addressed. THE HOUSE: Effortlessly walks that fine line between the pure simplicity we were searching for and grand luxury. Easily accommodated all nine of us (we're an extended family with kids). The outdoor fireplace was awesome, pool was perfect, large showers were heaven. Even the small touches were appreciated - the towels are extra plush. House is easy to get to, i.e. no boat needed (unlike some other properties we considered), and for small grocery shopping Santa Catarina is a quick walk. And the house is IMMACULATE - yup, they sweep under the beds. WiFi & TV worked consistently, kitchen appliances are modern. THE STAFF: Nicholas (caretaker) checked in on us but was never intrusive. Teresa and Pascuala were our cooks and made great breakfasts to order. And they were lovely to be around. THE AREA: Go! You will love it as much as we did. It's magical. San Pedro for the nightlife, San Marcos for a relaxing afternoon. And please stay at Casa Tzampoc...it will feel like your second home and you will cherish the memories you create there."

  • A Star in the Lake

    "This property is absolutely gorgeous, a true wonder. It was built taking into account every detail, from functionality to good taste and it`s built over a huge rock. When you get to the house, the most impressive thing you notice is the beauty and majesty of Atitlan Lake and it´s volcanoes (from left to right: Tolimán 3158 m., Atitlán 3535 m. and San Pedro 3020 m.). The house is surrounded by the mountains, having the best toilette view ever. The hut tub heated with wood is perfect for relaxing with a good wine and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Eating in the terrace is a pleasure, no matter what time of the day. Cooking in the well equiped kitchen is inspiring, also a bunch of great cook books, and is very easy to pick up vegetables, spices and fruits from the garden. It is possible to have delivery from La Casa del Mundo and a couple of other restaurants as well. The bathroom with tub and shower has great view and very hot water. Ideal place for yoga and meditation. Not a place suitable for young kids, unless supervised at all times. Access to the house is quite difficult if you are not physically fit, especially hauling luggage. Although you can hire a bunch of people to help carrying the luggage for Q5 each. Private shuttles to and from all other towns in the lake are available booked with time. To sit on the balcony`s hammock reading a good book is an awesome experience. In conclution it is worth the climbing, and it is an amazing place to have a great time. Our family is looking forward to visit the house again."

  • 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."
