It will be important to treat this house as if its your own, or better. There are some technical things that may require a call to the manager, such as the water pump system, filter system, alarm system. The deposit is for any damage found in or on the property. This will be returned only after inspection by the manager. If you find any damage upon checking in, to safeguard your deposit, you will need to contact the manager. Central America is a beautiful place, and this place around the lake is very special. You do need to be aware that the house has fences, barbwire and an alarm system for a reason. For the safety of your belongings and your deposit, you need to lock all doors, gates, use alarm system when ever leaving the house. Even if you are just walking into town for milk and bread. You will be briefed on how to lock up and arm the security system. Just be aware. I have had no losses due to break ins. I don't want anyone to lose their belongings nor my excellent record to change. I built this house with security in mind knowing the possible dangers in Central America. The water system may require filter cleanings or changes. Only attempt if you are familiar with such systems, otherwise, that's why there is a property manager.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Lovely cabin just outside town - simple, peaceful, relaxing
Wonderful cabin — quiet but close enough to town to be convenient Loved the beautiful private garden, kitchen, unlimited drinking water, and hot shower. Jim (owner) and Tom (property manager) were super kind and responsive to questions. A great place to relax and enjoy San Marcos.
Casita Quetzal is a great house!
It's a great house! The location is awesome, close to town but away from the noisy dogs. The balcony is perfect for watching all the birds and squirrels. I slept very well in the world-class bed, in the very quiet bedroom downstairs. Also I felt very safe there, and it was nice to have the security alarm system. I stayed there a month on a working holiday and fully appreciated having such a perfect HQ.
Lovely house in San Marcos
We enjoyed our stay at this house. The location is very convenient—a few minutes walk outside San Marcos village on a quiet stretch of road with no other houses around. Yoga classes at Hostal Del Lago are two minutes walk away. The bright living, dining and kitchen area upstairs has views of the surrounding trees and volcanoes. It leads on to a lovely terrace with a table and comfortable seating with views of the volcanoes, and a little bit of the lake through the trees.
Downstairs is the main bedroom and large attached bathroom with plenty of hot water. It leads into the garden of fruit trees and flowers, and the second bedroom is in a separate building next door.
The kitchen was well equipped with an oven, blender, and espresso maker, and there’s a water filtration system throughout the house so we could drink the tap water.
There’s an alarm system and a locked cupboard for valuables so we felt safe. The biggest downside was no WiFi so we had to use 3G on our phone as a personal hotspot, which ended up being expensive as we use the internet a lot.
The owner had some issues returning our deposit (it took 3 weeks) due to a bank problem, but it seems this has been sorted now so I don't think it should affect future guests.
