"We enjoyed our time in Casa Colina, it was a home away from home. The views of the volcanoes were amazing. We loved getting on the lanchas and traveling around the villages. Maria who helped with cleaning and cooking was a wonderful addition to our stay...her meals were delicious! We also used the teachers (Maria and Gaspar) from the Eco School in San Juan who came to the house to teach Spanish. It was an unforgettable experience! Can't wait to visit 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."

"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!"

"Wow- where do I begin? This place was amazing-from the views, to the service, attention to detail, the food and did I mention the VIEW???
David was great with booking and follow up, Daniel patient and awesome with coordinating our arrival and helping us with a couple items we left behind. Ronnie was great on site and saw to our every need-even booking transportation and a boat for a tour of the lake, arranging swedish massages etc.. Angela was our friendly and talented chef who prepared our healthy, delicious dinners.
This property is just amazing with breathtaking views, gorgeous decor, super super clean everything, and beautiful pool, fountains etc. There are A LOT of stairs, so consider that if someone in your group has mobility issues. I loved it- got to work off all the great food running up and down the stairs."
