  • huge home in beautiful subdivision

    "My wife, and I, plus one friend, stayed in this wonderful huge interesting home in a secured private residential community. The house is very comfortable and roomy. The kitchen was large and had all the necessary utensils and equipment. The Living room and dinning room was big and comfortable. The bedrooms were big. There was plenty of hot water for showers and the bathrooms were clean. The location was within 15 minute walking distance of the main square, and close to everything you need. I liked that there was a small local market one block away to pick up odds and ends."

  • Cozy Nest in the Heart of Pana

    "This property is one of six in a small Hotel, "Milagros del Lago," located on the Main Street of Panajachel some three blocks from the waterfront. It is an efficiency with all the necessary amenities: kitchen, dining table, living area with divider for bedroom with king bed, and plenty of closet space. The bathroom is roomy and the water is hot. Tasteful decor and furniture give the space a homey feel. The balcony, second floor, overlooks the street, and is a comfortable perch for watching merchants and tourists interact. The windows are double glazed and seal out most street noise, allowing for a restful sleep. Cable TV provides abundant English Language channels and the Wifi is strong and consistent. There is a pleasant rooftop area and a well stocked paperback library. Tastefully selected art adorns the hotel walls? Views of the lake and volcanoes are complimentary. The proprietor has made a genuine effort to be "Green'" using organic soap and recycling. There is daily maid service from Monday until Friday. The maid does laundry for a nominal fee. One caveat: like much of Guatemala, the water in Pana is not potable, but five gallon jugs of drinking water are provided. Should I again plan a visit to Panajachel, Patti's petit hotel will be my first consideration!"

  • Great Home for Enjoying Guatemala

    "My wife and I stayed in Catherine's home for two and a half months while we explored and volunteered in Guatemala. It was incredible. The location of the home is about ten minutes outside the city of Antigua in a very small town called Cuidad Vieja. The small town is much quieter, cheaper and less polluted then Antigua. The property sits in fields of coffee and avocado trees where my wife and I along with Catherine's two dogs explored for up to two hours a day. You can see volcanoes from your bedroom balcony. There are horses on the property. Beautiful gardens. We plan on having large family gatherings here in the future if this property is still available. If you are tired of being in a city and want to get away to relax go to Catherine's home. Don't waste your time paying for hotels in Antigua. You'll forget about all the things in life that you think are so important and start appreciating all the incredible nature on this Earth with the ones you love. That's what its like being at Catherine's house."

  • Heaven on Earth

    "i went their on my own, and wanted to have a calm 11 days vacation looking at a nice view. I had that as The view was magnificent and i woke up everyday looking at the lake's beauty and hearing the musical bird sounds. just sitting at the dock and reading was a pleasure. and the owner Alicia made it so easy and safe to be there; a list was provided with all the numbers that i could need including a spanish school, massage, yoga teacher and some fun activities (kayaking/hiking .. etc) so i got my relaxation, my "me time" but i also had super fun with kayaking and hiking a volcano. add to that meeting amazing people you can only think they came out of a Paulo Coelho novel. i can go on and on about the lake. p.s. i also learned how to live in peace with the spiders; they are harmless in there"
