Property description

La Casa Colibri 'The Hummingbird House' was designed to take in the lake views from every room in the house, cascading down the mountainside with huge amounts of glass framing in the panoramic views of Lake Atitlan and surrounding, perfectly cone-shaped volcanoes.

At approximately 5200 feet above sea level, the Lake Atitlan area enjoys year-round spring-like weather (70s to low 80s during the day and 60s at night). Although temperatures remain relatively constant throughout the year the weather is marked by two distinctive seasons: the rainy season (May to October) and the dry season (November to April). During the rainy season the mountains and volcanoes surrounding the lake are verdant green. The mornings are generally crystal clear, while the afternoons bring spectacular showers that are a sight to behold as they roll in over the lake. During the dry season it is rare to receive any precipitation at all.

La Casa Colibri has five luxurious guest rooms each with en-suite bath. Four rooms have spacious balconies overlooking the lake. Two rooms have deep soak tubs with separate showers. The house can accommodate up to 12 people comfortably.

Beds can be arranged in the following formats:
1) Bedroom One: Two twin beds or one king-size bed
2) Bedroom Two (Master): one king-size bed
3) Bedroom Three: One queen-size bed (plus sleeping loft which can sleep two people)
4) Bedroom Four: Two twin beds or one king-size bed
5) Bedroom Five: One queen-size bed

Additional amenities include:
* Fireplaces in master bedroom, poolside lounge and living room
* 2000 sq. feet of outdoor terrace
* Sauna
* Solar heated, infinity edge plunge pool with waterfall. When the sauna is in use, there is a heating element which harnesses the heat from the sauna to further heat the pool. Sauna
