"This is our second stay in this apartment. We returned because it has all we wanted, The unit is completely furnished right down to a blender ( which we used for mamey/zapote milkshakes!), garlic press ( for our guacamole!), comfortable sofas , and a great king size bed. New windows keep out noise ( we slept well...unusual for us). There is a balcony to enjoy the goings on below, always enjoyable. Also, a rooftop terrace has splendid views of the volcanoes and is a peaceful oasis. Patti takes great pride in her place and is available for any help required and is always willing to answer questions."

"We spent 3 nights in this property and it was wonderful. The location was beautiful right in front of a lake with unobstructed view of the water and 2 volcanoes beyond. The night sky is blanketed with all the bright stars and moon. Fireflies are flying around at night in the front yard. There were 4 adults in our group and the house was just perfect size. Francesca was the main person we emailed and spoke to on the phone to set up the rental. We basically emailed her numerous times to ask numerous questions on all the topics we had a concern about and she answered them all promptly. Rene met us at the Pana van shuttle stop and placed us on a private boat to directly take us to the house. There is a private dock right in front of the house so you do not need to pull all your belongings with you from the short but tricky walk along the wooden walk way to Paxanax (public dock) boat stop. Once we arrived at the house's private dock Pascual was there to help up unload our belongings to the house and gave us a tour of the property. Pascual also purchased us a huge stack of wood to use on the sauna which we used two nights in a row. During our stay there were two long term renters on the small cottages behind us but we never heard any noise from them at all. We did meet one of the long term renters and she was amazingly friendly. We spent a lot of our time just relaxing on the balcony/patio laying on the hammock and patio chairs. We also spent a lot of our mornings just sitting on the private dock drinking locally grown and roasted Guatemalan coffee that we purchased from the restaurant in the village. That coffee was delicious! Thank you for the coffee maker and filter! :) We cooked most of our dinners in the Kitchen. We didn't do any excursions while we were there because we mainly wanted to just rest, relax and catch up with old friends. The bathroom is definitely a new experience for all of us because it is open to the outdoors. We found it hilarious that if someone is in the bathroom using it and the rest of us are in the balcony/patio that we could continue our conversation with the person in the bathroom included. The views from the upstairs loft bedroom are amazing to wake up to as well as the big day bed in the living room. If you plan to stay here make sure you purchase you food and supplies in Pana because they are the only one with a big grocery store. However, Pascual can do the grocery shopping for you. We will definitely visit again!!! We LOVED it."

"While I strive to be altruistic, there is still a selfish part of me. I almost am wary of writing a review because I hope to return back to Casa Paloma many many times and fear that everyone will realize what a magic place this is and there won't be any openings. Alas, we can not live our lives ruled by fear or scarcity, so i sit here to tell you the good word. This house is magic. Guatemala is magic. The town of San Marcos is magic. By magic, I mean that things that don't seem possible, become possible in a delightful and enchanting way. For example, I enjoyed staying in the house so much, walking in to town, chatting with the angelic gardeners Miguel and Mateo and the charming boat rides to explore other parts of the lake so much that when I called to change my flight to stay longer, the airline agent said, "You know what? I like you, I'm not going to charge you a change fee!" See....MAGIC! You can easily see from the pictures that it is a beautiful home, but you cannot see the lightning bugs that buzz around after sunset, the way the sky is pink some mornings just before dawn or feel the powerful healing energy of the sacred land around this home, town and country. Joyce's house and visiting Antigua is one of my most favorite trips I have been on and I look forward to going back again and again and trust that there will be enough time at the house for all of us. Blessings on your adventures and know that if you go to this house, you will receive extra blessings!"
