"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!"

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."

"I had been looking for a perfect escape to celebrate with my husband my birthday - a quiet, dreamy, beautiful spot - and I always had wanted to visit Lake Atitlan. It all came together perfectly in Casa Paloma. We simply couldn't get enough of the amazing views of the lake, the volcanoes, the beautiful lush gardens, and the quiet. We only made it into town for dinner, because we were simply content with lounging around, or taking the kayak to paddle around the lake. The housekeepers Miguel and Mateo were super sweet, never intruding, always helpful in any way. Also, Joyce, the owner gave us excellent instructions before arriving on how to get there, what to do, etc. Couldn't have asked for a better romantic getaway and birthday celebration!"
