"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!"

"Pamakanya is amazing. What a festive, cool, unique and lovely home!!! We went with our 3 kids ages 4,7 and 9 and my 70 year old parents. We all fell in love. It's all so cool, the views from the upper house are incredible. I recommend at least one sunrise session from the deck (you can't actually see it but the sounds and morning light are captivating). Having our own dock, kayaks and houses was a delight. Katie and her whole crew were incredibly responsive, kind and accommodating from start to finish. 4 days wasn't enough and we'd LOVE to return if we can!"

"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."

"Lake Atitlan is one of the most beautiful places I've ever been, and this house made the stay even more amazing. A group of seven of grad students stayed in this lovely home for a week in March and had a fantastic time. The house is comfortable, clean and has all the amenities we needed. We cooked in the large kitchen, feasted and played games at the huge dining table and even toasted marshmallows in the mayan fireplace. Most of our days were spent lounging on the dock taking in the gorgeous sites and swimming in the lake, which is clear, clean and lovely. The hammock on the patio near the flowering trees is another treat. The staff on hand at the house were thoughtful and efficient, and the landlord was wonderful - she gave us all sorts of ideas for how to entertain ourselves and made our vacation perfectly relaxing. I would go back in a heartbeat."
