Casa Valdres is truly one of the most appealing private villas on Lake Atitlan. Accessible only by boat in the peaceful lakeside village of Santa Cruz, this 3-story 4-bedroom home is filled with light and ample space and offers some of the best lake views available. Extensive outdoor patio areas surround the solar-heated infinity pool, and the lush garden of tropical flowers invites a wide range of birds. Sweeping balconies offer panoramic views from the upstairs bedrooms and living areas, and the modern but homey feel of the interior makes this an ideal spot to relax in comfort.
The incredibly spacious, modern kitchen is a dream for preparing simple meals or for lavish entertaining, with a huge island, double refrigerator, 6-burner stove, microwave and dishwasher. The equally large dining area seats 10 comfortably, and an adjacent living room with sofas and fireplace is a cozy retreat in the cool of the evening. High ceilings throughout the entire house add to the open plan and give a real sense of spacious elegance. WIFI is available throughout the house, and a DVD player with TV is here for further entertainment. A laundry room is also available with washer and dryer, and an elaborate filtration system including ultraviolet and ozone treatment ensures that all water entering the house is pure.
Rental includes maid service twice a week, and gardener/caretaker is available daily.
