"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."

"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."

"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!"
