Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

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

Casa Colibri was breathtaking

  • 4 of 5

Casa Colibri is a beautifully curated house with breathtaking views, attention to detail, and a friendly staff. This is a top notch property with excellent services available: Angela and Carmen are amazing cooks and will make sure your family is fed well; Rocio will make sure everything you want to do is set up, and will stock the house with whatever you want; and definitely book Alicia to come by and work on your sore spots, best massage we've had in years. The rooms are quite spread out, so they offer a lot of privacy, but you will need to utilized the numerous patios and common spaces to be together with family and friends. This property is definitely not for those who have mobility issues as there are a lot of stairs and a mountain to hike (or jump in the back of a pick-up!) up to get to the residence.

We had a magical time at Casa Colibri and would recommend it to anyone traveling in the area.

Beyond GORGEOUS property- Everything TOP NOTCH!

  • 5 of 5

Wow- where do I begin? This place was amazing-from the views, to the service, attention to detail, the food and did I mention the VIEW???

David was great with booking and follow up, Daniel patient and awesome with coordinating our arrival and helping us with a couple items we left behind. Ronnie was great on site and saw to our every need-even booking transportation and a boat for a tour of the lake, arranging swedish massages etc.. Angela was our friendly and talented chef who prepared our healthy, delicious dinners.

This property is just amazing with breathtaking views, gorgeous decor, super super clean everything, and beautiful pool, fountains etc. There are A LOT of stairs, so consider that if someone in your group has mobility issues. I loved it- got to work off all the great food running up and down the stairs.

Great Girls Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group hands down loved Casa Colibri. David was able to arrange a few day trips for us at a moment's notice and was always available via cell or email whenever we needed something. The house was gorgeous, and fit 6 of us very comfortably. All of the meals were fabulous, and going out to eat in one of the neighboring towns was very convenient. I highly recommend staying here!!

Breathtakingly Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

Lake Atitlan with its surrounding volcanoes is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places on this earth. Nowhere does this become more apparent than at Casa Colibri. The masterpiece David built highlights Atitlan's beauty from every window, every door, bedroom, bathroom, balcony and deck. The home exudes such quietude and serenity one is left with an appreiation of all that is good in life.

Then of course you have David, Lucas, Carmen and Angela taking care of your every need. Fabulous meals, evenings accented by firelight and candlelight, fresh flowers throughout, heavenly.

Set Casa Colibri's star ranking by counting those in the sky on the clearest of Atitlan nights.

Magical Views

  • 5 of 5

Lake Atitlan is a very special place, and La Casa Colibri is a very special house. Beautiful views, excellent service, unique artwork, luxurious bathrooms, comfortable beds, and romantic fireplaces. David offers excellent suggestions for exploring Lake Atitlan, and he cheerfully arranges all transportation needs -- which is important since the house is located on a steep cliff outside of town. Our family (ages 6 to 80) loved this home and the people of Lake Atitlan. Definitely ask Angela to cook dinner for your group, you won't be disappointed. Caveats: this would not be a good house for those who cannot easily navigate stairs. There are TONS of stairs. Also, please fix the stereo -- we would would have loved to listen to music while enjoying the views! David, thank you for a wonderful first experience at Lake Atitlan!

Luxury with views, views, views....

  • 5 of 5

What a great property. Top-notch in all regards. Was greeted by David, who gave us a tour and then brought us back some supplies. The view from the top floors and the bedrooms is better than any of the pictures you will see. Simply fantastic with lake appearance changing constantly, especially at sundown.

Both Lucas and Angela were great. We always had fires and candles glowing nightly (cool enough at night to enjoy the fire in the bedroom but warm enough during the day for a swim in the pool) The food was absolutely perfect and what a great deal. If you go, let them cook for you as you will not regret it. Beautiful flowers indoors and out.

Very large property with a great layout. Large groups would be very comfortable here as the shared areas are large with plenty of seating and incredible views. The sleeping areas are also large but offer privacy and nice balconies with views. Only one room without a view but it is setup where children would love it.

Don’t miss this as it has to be one of the best properties on the lake. It’s a long steep climb up the drive from the road but taxis etc. will have no problems. Tuk-tuks—maybe not, but it’s that climb that gives you the perfect unobstructed view across the lake. Fair price for what you get, exceptional service, wonderful food. It truly is paradise in every way.
