  • Unique house in and amazing location

    "I stayed at Nathalie's house for the month of July whilst working remotely on my PhD thesis. The internet was slightly up and down but manageable for picking up email (and I think I hit a particularly bad period). That the house is slightly separated from the village makes it perfect as a retreat if you need a bit of peace and quiet. Having said that, it's still incredibly easy to get all your basic supplies or a decent meal cooked for you within Jaibalito. Nathalie's own artistic input has made this house truly unique, and coupled with the great views you can't really go wrong. Nathalie was very responsive in all our communication and although she was out of the country for most of the stay she left me in the capable hands of a particularly charming Canadian. (Colin was great, always really friendly and offering help with anything I needed - when I was sick and couldn't stomach much or face the walk to the village he arranged for two cheese toasties to be delivered to the house!). For those wanting to explore a little it's easy to jump on the boat to San Marcos or any of the other towns around the lake. If you're looking for a Backpackers scene you can get your fix over in santa cruz (30 minute walk, great 15 minute jog) - at the end of my stay I did the padi open water course here at the iguana lodge. Oli was a great instructor and I'd definitely recommend him for anyone interested in learning or needing a guide for the lake. Before your stay Nathalie sends you a booklet with loads of information about the house, village, and surrounding area (+ activities, emergency numbers, and much more). If you decide to rent Nathalie's house you will not regret it."

  • Wonderful Setting

    "Wonderful Setting, beautiful location, quiet...house has interesting custom details as you see from the pictures - very 70ish, hippie-like...bottles in the walls, etc. rock bath was very comfortable, shower was sketchy as hot water came and went rapidly!!! House needs some fixing up but still was comfortable if you are not too particular. The local people we encountered were very nice, especially on the shuttle boats that take you around the beautiful lake. The caretakers/property managers were simply magnificent - Francesca and Rene at Mayan Lake Realty went above and beyond to make our stay the best and are lovely people. Pascal, the guardian of the house was there everyday to help out if needed...All in all, we had a great time..."

  • Perfect Lake House

    "Gabi had a private boat pick us up to take us to the house which was better than the pictures show. The rooms were spacious. The avocado tree was dropping fruit so we made guacamole. We traveled by water taxi to all of the towns around the lake and got in plenty of hiking. Spanish would help but we got by with English. The lake is high so they built boardwalks to get from the house to town. In the afternoons you had to time the lake waves to not get splashed, but if you get wet it dries fast. The locals are really friendly and we got to know all of the restaurant owners. We did the Super Bowl at Norm's Restaurant/bakery as he has satellite tv. Best as a laid back scenic vacation."

  • Wonderful Experience

    "Our experience with Lee and Elaine exceeded expectations. Lake Atitlan is a unique and beautiful place that offers visitors an opportunity for the trip of a lifetime. Through their friendly support, we were able to realize this opportunity. From arranging transportation from the Guatemala City Airport to the lake, assisting in grocery purchases, designing and delivering wonderful tours/experiences and booking hotel reservations in Antigua, we were helped by Lee and Elaine from beginning to end. The accommodations were clean, comfortable and were exactly as pictured. We will remember this trip for the geographic awe of Lake Atitlan, the unbelievable cultural immersion with the Mayan people, and the friendly professionalism of our hosts, Lee and Elaine."
