"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!"
