  • A Wonderful Corner of the World

    "How fortunate we were to have found Pamakanya and Jaibalito/Guatemala for our family vacation! We have not been together as a family for a week long vacation since our adult children were in their late teens/college age and so this was a unique opportunity to catch up with our three daughters, their spouses and our two grandchildren. We have had the opportunity to travel and so a week long vacation somewhere none of us had been before was one of our goals and the ability to be in a country where you can really interact with the folks who live there was a real plus. I am fond of native Americans and the Mayan people who we were fortunate to meet were special and lovely. From the experience of talking with Maria and her daughter while they prepared for us one of three meals at the house (no easy task as we had two vegans and one vegetarian amongst the rest of us meat eaters) to interacting with restaurant owners and workers, boat drivers, , fellow passengers on the water taxis, or merchants in some of the small towns within walking distance from Pamakanya, we were enthralled. Lake Atitlan is indeed a special place and having those fantastic views of the lake and volcanoes, morning, noon, and night was something we will all long remember. The house was perfect for our extended family as we spread out comfortably in all three casitas and congregated at all hours in the main house. The owners have kept this house as I would have and do everything possible to make your stay perfect. The information provided by them was excellent and so we followed their recommendations many times including our first night stay briefly in Guatemala City before hiring the van to transport the 10 of us to the lake, where we caught our private boat to the house. Swimming in the lake and kayaking were two of the many special things we did during the week, walking to the neighboring villages and hiking a volcano two more, and we only regretted not being able to stay for a month instead of just a week! Work and the real world did eventually reimpose itself on all of our lives but the memories will long be with us of a fantastic week at Pamakanya, Jaibalito, Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Thank you Katie and Becky..!!"

  • Beautiful lakefront retreat!

    "Pasajcap is the most amazing property I have ever seen in life! Pierre's vision of having a lakefront paradise with modern amenities is truly spectacular. Upon arrival to the property we were greeted by Pierre and his 3 German Shepards that are very friendly and welcoming, we were then introduced to our amazing apartment with incredible volcano views. Our apartment was spotless and the design was simply amazing as we loved the overall feel of the place. The shower is positioned where you have a great view of the volcano yet it's far away from the windows this detail was truly impressive. The open space is very well planned as you have plenty of room to lounge by your fireplace or cook some great meals as there is everything you need for your stay. Pierre was nice enough to provide us with firewood for our entire stay along with a tank of drinking water, he truly is an amazing host! Everybody on the property is very friendly especially Domingo he's just very nice all around. The cleaning ladies are very friendly as well and they will even do your laundry for a small fee. We loved the private dock where you can just catch a boat right off the property and lake hop to neighboring towns. We love Copacabana it's one of the best units as it has an amazing view from uptop and an awesome rooftop patio all to yourself. We will definitley be back to enjoy this amazing property for a longer period of time, thanks to Pierre and his lovely staff for taking such good care of us!!!!"

  • Amazing lake front on Lake Atitlan

    "Villa Verdad is an amazing and spectacular place to stay on Lake Atitlan. This was our second time at Villa Verdad and it was just as amazing as the first. It was even so amazing that my partner proposed to me in the garden on our last day here. It will always be a place that we remember as somewhere special. It is in a perfect location because it is close to the boat launch in Pana but far away from all the backpackers. You can take a boat ride to any of the other villages if you want o go shopping or out. For the most part, we just stayed in the house and enjoyed the beautiful landscape. Francesca is amazing to work with. While we were in our shuttle bus from Antigua, the rain was so bad that I was just able to email her and she was able to arrange for a private boat to pick us up at the dock and bring us straight to the house. I was able to email her anytime and she always got back to us right away. They are also very good about getting the security back to us as soon as we leave the house."

  • Paradise and Great Service

    "From the moment we contacted the owners and through every step of the trip, we felt taken care of and introduced to a paradise on earth. The views from the home, especially while lying in the master bedroom, are spectacular. The kitchen was well-stocked and capable of handling a huge meal ... but we never needed to cook because of the culinary feasts prepared for us by Angela. And every morning, an incredibly warm and smily Tressa would greet us and prepare a beautiful breakfast, different every day of our 6 days. Nicholas is the caretaker for the home and he treats you like family, anticipating every need. The decks are beautiful spots to eat, sip wine, enjoy a fire, read, meditate. And you are only 10 minutes from downtown Pana by a public pickup route that has service every few minutes and costs about 50 cents. There is only one very small item to consider in renting this home. To gain the best views of the lake, it is perched at the top of a hill, up which you must walk to reach the home. This was great exercise for us, but renters should be aware that this walk is quite strenuous. You can certainly get a truck to take you up but this requires some planning."
