"We were on honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a more perfect spot. We intended to stay for one week but ended up extending our stay to two! The view is like no other -- woke up every morning to the beautiful sight of San Pedro volcano and Lake Atitlan as the bed faces directly out the giant windows. Can slide the windows right open so you can feel the outdoors. Private dock allowed us to go for a nice swim every morning. Very peaceful and quiet. Far enough from the 'busy' streets of San Pedro and Panajachel although the towns were a nice, short boat ride across whenever we wanted to go. Pleasant walk into the town of San Marcos where we did our grocery shopping daily. We arrived pretty late in the evening for our first night but we were able to purchase some seafood and wine right on the property which was very convenient! The fully-equipped kitchen made cooking all of our meals very easy. Big, comfortable bed, fireplace, hammock, the most picturesque view, etc. what more do you need! The apartment and overall landscaping of the entire property is pretty impressive. Clean, spacious and well-maintained. Pierre and staff were very hospitable, attending to all of our needs but at the same time they were great about giving us our privacy. Always very helpful and just really nice people which was great. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!"Guest: marley-girl Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 25, 2014View listing

"I can't thank you enough for such a wonderful vacation home! The home exceeded our expectations in every way. It was so nice to enjoy the spaciousness of the home and the beautiful gardens that accompanied it. As you know, we were there with 2 other families who rented two of your other homes in the same complex. It was like we had our own resort to ourselves! All of us enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. This is a gem you have in Antigua. The pictures of the house are just like it is but you really must come here to see it youself. The view of the volcano was spectacular! The cleaning staff were unintrusive and very friendly. The house was always cleaned spotless! They even did a little ironing for us as the clothes we brought for the wedding just needed a light pressing. We will definitely stay there again when we return. I almost forgot.....Sophia operates a very exclusive and professional travel service for you and your guests. The level of service she provides is exceptional! She was always available and accommodating even at unreasonable last minute requests. I was having trouble renting a car and decided last minute to use her service. She provided me with a driver and van to go visit our friends who were in Monterrico. The extra cost (minimal and worth the extra dollars) to have someone else drive who knows the route not to mention the driving habits of locals, was well worth it. Our driver was knowledgable of the local area and was able to answer our many questions along the route to the beach. Same for our airport transfers...5 star service in new shuttle vans. Very impressive! This level of service is outstanding, it's appreciated and worth every penny. We did a lot of looking around at other houses when we were there and I can tell anyone who is wondering, you will not want to leave once you arive!"Guest: Greg W.

"Catherine house was a very relaxing place to stay. We were lucky to be able to stay at the house before and after the delivery of my baby girl helping me and my husband to be tranquil and get prepared for the geat day, with the beautifull views of the volcanoes and the contryside, and with the special presence of the two charmy and clam dogs (Barley and Kaira) who accompanied us for long walks which helped me a lot. Catherine and her employees were always available during our stay at her house, they always were accessible for any questions that we had. I really really recommend to stay in that magical and spectacular house. I know that you will not regret it."Guest: ... Date of Stay: September 2013 Review Submitted: January 2, 2014View listing
