DryerThis is one of few homes in this area that has this feature.

My place is the perfect base for exploring the lake and it’s Mayan villages. Spend the days hiking, or relax with a day of pampering at our on-site spa. It is close to the lake shore, with our own swim beach, boat dock, public transportation (water taxis), and nature. We are far from crowds, traffic, pollution, and stress.. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the ambiance, the comfy bed, the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids).

Overall we enjoyed our stay. It was a great place for two couples and the large outdoor living area and kitchen was fantastic, even when it was raining. The location was excellent as we were looking for something secluded. The house and kitchen had everything we needed and Elaine…

This is a great value for an affordable place, and our host Elaine was very friendly, talkative and helped us find our way around the area. Be aware though that the shower is inside one bedroom, and there are lots of dogs on the property that bark and howl all night, and there ar…

This is a little piece of paradise. A stunning outlook across the lake. Beautiful swimming in clean, cool water. Lovely hosts, and a perfect little hotel next door with coffee in the morning, and gin in the afternoon. What more could you ask for?

Unfortunately, we didn’t get to spend the night since we arrived to Pana kind of late around 9:00pm, and we decided to stayed in town and not crossing the lake until the next morning. We got to see it and spend sometime in the property and it is a perfect relaxing spot with so m…

Elaine's place was AMAZING in terms of location. It was really easy to get around the lake from the either the house or the main Santa Cruz docks. The view was incredible. I spent most mornings watching the sunrise over the mountains, going for a swim, and then having a coffee in…

This place is amazing!! Elaine and Lee were great hosts. The location is perfectly near lots of restaurants and activities while still feeling like your own secluded oasis. We were raving about the find to all our friends who stayed elsewhere. Don’t pass on this choice!

I decided in 2003 to make a big change in my lifestyle. I wanted to be less consumer driven, make a smaller footprint on the planet, and to give back to the planet. Instead of giving to charitable causes by writing a check, we wanted to be working in the field offering our time…
